King Arms. Best out of the box next to a stock TM. Stock internals last a long time.

Jeez, it really looks like I opened Pandora's box on this one. I thought I was confused before, now I'm COMPLETELY lost!

I think in the end, I may just end up grabbing whatever crosses my path and looks interesting.

Thanks for all the input you've given, guys. People always complain about ASC being such an unfriendly place - I've seen some pretty harsh threads before, but I'm actually surprised at the outpouring of help here.

Thanks again guys. I really appreciate it and hope to see you guys on the field this coming summer.

Question: has anybody here tried the new Tokyo Marui M4 yet? Is it even available here yet?

Well I don't really need to spring for an all metal gun. I'd rather start with a solid platform with reliable internals and upgrade to a high quality receiver later down the line.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the VFC line of guns yet. Those look amazingly built and might be something I'd consider getting as well if I don't go all the way to PTW.

Are there not too many VFC owners here?

Once you start mixing mechbox and body parts from different brand, the initial benefit of reliability of a given brand starts diminishing. Conversely, when you buy a good all metal gun, all the parts are already made to fit together properly.

Really? I've been running a G&G GR16 Light carbine since May now on a LiPo with stock gears and have yet to come across any issues. I can be pretty heavy on the trigger to boot.

I would highly recommend G&G guns to anyone looking for a good quality gun at an affordable price. Finish is nice, internals are quite good, and they've always proven to be reliable. The only issue I've had would be motor contacts disconnecting on me but that's easily remedied with a pair of pliers or some solder if you don't open it up too often.

As you would guess by the signature...I prefer G&P.
But just make sure you lube the gears!!! Even if it's BNIB!

At least for M4's. I don't know about other models.
