Better Gun?

Ive decided between 2 guns. Both are used, and have around 500-1000 rounds through them.

1) Tokyo Marui FAMAS Sv. Comes with 1 Mag and the gun. Most likely a battery and charger. $225

2) Airsoft Elite(never heard of them) MP5 SD5. Comes with 1 high cap, and 3 low cap mags, battery and charger. $280

I'm basically going on performance and durability. The FAMAS is ~280fps and the MP5, the guy said was 300fps.

thanks.

Airsoft Elite MP5's are rebranded ICS, usually sold with a stiffer spring.

He doesn't mean who from. He means WHERE geographically. Cause if he's in the US, good luck.

Go for the FAMAS. TM is the only company to have ever made a FAMAS, I thought. And that gearbox lasts forever, I hear, with great rate of fire.

True that.
The FAMAS can't travel that far in terms of upgrades though because of the motor... I wonder if there is an aftermarket TM V1 motor, hmm.

Ujiro, you are wrong.

JP makes a FAMAS, if its a JP FAMAS, then you are getting what you should pay for, if its a genuine TM, it's a steal, and you should definitely buy it.

I love my TM famas. if its a real TM, that is an amazing steal. Dont worry about upgrades, it doesnt need any, it runs great stock.

TM FAMAS in Japan are selling for 20,000-22,500 Yen that's about 225-250 USD. I would say that most airsoft shops have at least 1 sitting on a the shelf.

Version 1 Gearbox is the absolute worst gearbox to work on. If anything breaks you need 6 thumbs and 8 hands, and eyes on your fingers tips to successfully put it back together. I've worked on two and I will never again touch them.

But for CDN prices you are getting a deal buy them both and sell the one. Personally FAMAS is a wall hanger.
