where is your Area? how old are you?
If thats all you can afford, get either because they both wont last.
If you can get up to around 350 go with one of the new G&G guns as they shoot great, can be worked on easily and depending on region there are stores that carry them. If your under 18 you wont be able to buy from stores

if your under 18 you wont be able to buy at all. that is unless you get a guardian to buy it for you.
i would go with the aftermath, better gearbox,
get a kraken though, there all about the same and the kraken is the easiest to upgrade.

Hes right the broxa is pretty flawless. I've been using a 11.1V battery with no problems... its brings the guns fire rate up 15rps, pretty crazy that a $200 gun can do that.

Yea, but for how long? Both are pretty crap, but out of the two, I'll just echo the sentiments for the Broxa. But thats like choosing between AIDS and herpes. One is worse than the other but at the end of the day, its still an STD doesnt matter how you look at it.

Broxa isn't bad at all. Yes its not a $600 greatly marked up full black gun. Get over it - its a awesome gun for its valuie. Can't go wrong.

You still get what you pay for. I'll take my TM MP5 over a broxa anyday. At least with the TM I know it will last the entire game and not randomly decide to explode.

Aftermath guns are fine -if they work. However, from what I've seen they have close to a 40%-50% failure/lemon rate. I can't remember who said it in one of the other threads: People don't get that a few good experiences with a gun don't trump all of the bad ones tons of other people have had.

If you get a Broxa and it works flawlessly, you're in good shape. But if it doesn't... well.. don't say we didn't warn you.
