M4 compatability

hello there, just wondering what the compatability of the M4 is with the different companies that make it (ex. JG compatability to G&G). Any help would be awesome! Thanks in advance

There is usually a pretty high compatibility amoung brands, but it varies make by make. 99% of aftermarket parts are made for Tokyo Marui... and other brands all copy Tokyo Marui, some do it very close, others don't.

As kalnaren said, most M4s out there are TM clones. The vast majority of internals and externals are compatible. Where you're find differences are with the recievers. Certain uppers may not mate with lowers from other brands. But the other than that, the vast majority of the guns are 100% compatible in theory. Where this falls apart is that some of the lower end Chinese clones are made to very poor tolerances, so a part that would fit in a TM may not fit as perfectly in a cheap gun. Otherwise, parts are compatible.

The big exception to this is the ICS line of M4s. ICS use a proprietary split mechbox design. While many of the internals are compatible (gears, pistons, springs, etc...), some internals aren't compatible.

And that G&P stock should work fine on a TM.

Inner barrels are interchangable, but the ICS hopup chamber is specific to the ICS M4 and can not be used on another armalite.
