need review- G&G gr16 carbine

hello, bonjour , gutentag :salute:

All I ever heard about the G&G gr16 carbine is that it is a beast and owns everything, but is there anyone who could give a review from their experiences with this rifle? much appreciated

Here's the carbine (not sure if it's V1 or V2):

Looks like a beast, and I'd love to buy it. A&A had it for $530 on sale, but then it went back up to $630 :P

I was not quite sure if mine and my buddies' GR was version 1 but all i can say is that they sound totally garbage. They have this horrible high pitch super stressful sound to them. It was not the motor adjustment as i fucked around with it for a good 1/2 hour alone. I know it wasnt just mine because my buddie's has the same problem. Body/ furniture are great though...actually amazing.

I disagree, they are made of cheap monkey metal, not nearly the quality of other metal bodies, mine had the body tab break during shipping to me. Also the hop unit is garbage, other than that its a good weapon, comes with some good internals.

Which version of the GR did you have? My body didn't have tabs. G&G advertises their bodies to be light weights (which they are- no doubt about it). Interms of fit, i liked the G&G body. Both my G&G and systema mechbox fit like a glove...unlike SRC metal bodies...but i won't get into that, lol.

I beleive I have the pre-2005 version, no doubt its lightweight but as far as durability it may as well be made of tinfoil compared to the ICS or G&P metal bodies.

Lighter. Metal reciever is made of magnesium alloy. I held and compared G&G and CA and G&G wins. Ops! I own a G&G M4

thanks for the good input, real good help, just out of curiosity if you were to choose between the g&g gr 16 carbine and the CA m15 a4 carbine what would be your pick? I read the review on arnies for the CA and it looks good

I'd go with CA, you'll have less problems. But again that's just my opinion, I may have gotten the crappy pick of the bunch with my AEG, the others may be better.

Is there a major difference in quality (i.e. Broken vs. not broken, out of the box) between the A2 and A4 CA m15 series?
From what I've seen on retailer's websites, the M15A2 is about 100 bucks less than the M15A4, and the only thing I can tell that's different is that the A2 has a fixed carry handle.
