G&G GR16 vs M16

Hi,
im looking to get a new gun, looking for something accurate at distance, and under $400.
Ive pretty much narrowed it down (considering local stores, etc) to either the G&G GR16 A3 or M16 A3, but im not sure what the difference is between the two, or if there is any. their specs seem pretty much the same, and as for reviews, they both seem to be fine. Any insight?
ive also looked at the Jing Gong M4A1, how do you think that would stack up?
Thanks in advance

Knowing G&G its probably the same gun or one has a metal reciever and the other is nylon based plastic receiver.
That said what I do know is that an m4 and an m16 are mostly the same but have some big differences.
M16: has a longer inner barrel so it will have great range and fps based on the same spring. (ie if both an m4 and m16 have a m100 spring the m16 will have higher fps) Length is obviously longer which can be a bad thing if your a smaller person especially if you have a full stock.

M4: Shorter barrel good for moving around stuff, most come with telescopic stocks so it can be adjusted to your preference. Lower fps can be beneficial in some areas of the country which only allow lower fps.

Now with a G&G you will get a tightbore 6.04mm barrel instead of a 6.08mm, the gun will most likely have a ball bearing spring guide and is generally considered upgraded from the start. That said some people have had lots of issues with the mechbox in which they would crater fast. My has been good so far but it is relatively new still, aprox. 3000 rds.

JG will probably shoot to hot unless you live in Alberta as it will be about 380-400fps. Which means that you will have to downgrade the spring and if you don't know how that will cost you extra. That said some people would rather buy a JG before a G&G. Most JG that I have seen for sale also include an all black body where as the G&G do not.

Also please fill out your location, so more of the local guys can help point you in the right direction with fps rules and gun docs.

Hope this helps.

The clear Jing Gong M4a1s use the older version mechbox that shoot around 330-350fps rather than their newer 390-400fps.

If you're a new player, i'd recommend getting the G&Gs simply because they will have less problems in the future for the most part. The quality control and build are much sturdier than JG.

TCLP, do you have a g&g m16 or gr16? you seem to know a lot about them. If you do, what is the accuracy/groupings like? thats probably the most important factor for me. Yes, im in alberta, ill update my profile.
