A little GBBR help

I've been using my TM mp7 and ksc FPG Gas Blowback system now for about 2 years in CQB and for the most part , pretty reliable... Now I think Im ready for my first M4 GBBR

I've been running a decent M4 AEG for 6 years now and I dont want to spend 2000$ on an PTW.

So I guess is I'm asking you guys what is a good company to start up my project
Alot of peole in MTL are running WE ....Im not so convinced its the best route to take.
I have a G&P AEg , so I was thinking G&P...... I need to know from someone who has tested and fielded . Whats the best for an affordable price

Can I get some suggestions and the reasons.

Thanks guys

The only good suggestion I can give out is reading the 50 other threads that talks about this similar situation.

The four most common gas systems for M4s in Canada are WE, KJW, KWA, and WA (G&P uses the WA system).

Read up on the pros and cons of each one. Any GBBR will likely need a velocity reducer/NPAS installed. But other than that, different systems will have different parts that you'll want to replace.

KJW is said to be "the best out of the box", and it's my personal favourite, but I haven't done much gaming with the other systems.

If you are interested in HPA tanks and a line to your gun, you can check out Daytona Guns (GBB), or Polar Star (AEG)

They won't run you $2000, but will run you about 1-1, 300.

Only upgrades you'll need after is a nice AEG inner barrel and you are good to go.

Yah get a kjw. The old thermold mags you can get for 38 dollars! Compared to 45-60 dollars for other companies.

Be aware tho, you will have to go buy some blue gasket sealant to seal your mags, buts its a one time fix.

Black sealant is better.

Read the following thread for more info:

I'm not trolling, i'm simply not spoon-feeding people who has their answers a couple of scrolls down a page.

Too bad you're a part of that generation who doesn't read a lot.

You have TONS of reviews about different GBBR brands, their pros/cons, ect ect ect.; use them instead of depending on a couple of user's review in this thread to make yourself an idea about your future project.

Aper has a point, though. There's a lot of threads on the topic already.
We can give our opinions, but each platform has their draw backs, and it's up to you to research what you will put up with.

For example, KJW only came out with regular stanag looking mags recently, and a lot of people avoided KJW because they didn't like the thermold style mags.
I personally love them. It keeps them more snug in my open top mag pouches, holds more gas, and looks slightly more unique.

If WE is the most common GBBR amongst your friends, you may want to go with it, so that you can share mags.

If you're on a budget, avoid WA, because depending on the brand, their mags can be well over $100 each for top quality.

As for KJW Mags, I've been beating the hell out of mines, and on top of the 10 I originally had for 4 years, only a few were leaking. I wrote to KJW directly, they sold me O-rings and valves and I replaced mostly O-Rings on my mags, instead of putting some gasket maker on them.

Opinions is what I want . Thank You. Other threads have general info , I'm looking for personal opinions and I'm not trying to go to 10 different threads to do so. But again thank you Aper for stating the obvious

Tippman is slated to release a dual gas system M4 in the next couple of months. Apparent price point will be around $400, and mags $25. It comes with an adjustment valve inside, and can run on HFP and CO2, both of which are more consistant and stable than propane/green gas.

There are several threads from people asking this exact same set of questions. Also several reviews, upgrade threads, etc. Use the search function to access this information, so that we aren't posting it over and over. Then you can ask the educated questions that are not posted up yet. Aper is correct, and it is a forum stand-point, to make people research and familiarize themselves with ASC before asking "can everyone else do the work for me?".
