Will it be a drastic difference if I go Canadian army or agm? I know its cheaper, but if 100 bucks more will keep my gun from falling apart I would rather go that route?

I would go with a brand name like TM, ICS, or Classic army, G&G, G&P, it'll most likely save you time and money. If you get a cheap one now you will want to upgrade to a better one later.

Yeah, I was going to go with one of the better known ones. I was jsut noticing that classic army was a hundred bucks cheaper then TM and I wondered if it was worth it to go TM over CA?

I'm a newbie like you, but as far as I know, most people will tell you that TM makes the most reliable stock guns with higher quality internal parts. But if you want to upgrade your internals to shoot over 300fps, it kinda negates that advantage.

Tokyo Marui also uses plastic where Classic Army uses metal. On the Armalite serie, the TM receiver is made of plastic and replacing it for a metal one(new) will cost you around $200. Just for that fact, getting a Classic Army Armalite might be a better idea.

If I were starting all over again, and if the option had been available at the time, I'd go for a PTW (Systema Police Training Weapon). It's a bigger up-front purchase, but a thousands times more durable.

TM M14 is a solid gun..

Stock it out ranges all other guns (Except those designated as sniper rifles)

It's a little long and heavy, But I like it for my play style.

I find that TM is pretty much a good deal no matter what. But on a side note, doesn't A&A only sell systema to Training?

Actually, it might be. PTW anyway...whatever it stands for, it's the gold standard.

Basically, if you don't get a dud out of the box, your AEG will work fine for a long time if you look after it, care for it, and treat it well.

Yeah, as long as you don't try to take your new purchase apart and fiddle as soon as you get it, then things should be fine. Basic upkeep (lube etc) will keep your guns going for a good while.

As far as Brand names are concerned, CA has come leaps and bounds as far as QC is concerned in the last few years, so unless you are terribly unlucky you don't really have to worry about getting a lemon. If you like the look of a certain type of weapon check out the review section to see who says what about the diff brands.
