Yeah I would probably go with the advanced. I mean you do get a regular G&G rather than Combat Machine/G&G hybrid and that alone is the deal maker for me. For you however I really don't know maybe try showing up to a JOC game and asking around if anyone has those guns and ask if you can handle it for a round.

Other than that, Ken might let you do it if you ask him **REALLY** nicely.

- 8mm ball bearing bushings
- G&G "Strong Motor"
- Reinforced piston and metal piston head
- Bearing metal spring guide
- Silver Wiring
- Silver Electroplated 6.04mm tight bore barrel

= +$70 more than regular

If you think that those are upgrades that the standard version will undergo later, then yes.

If you arent going to use the upgrades, then no.

I would say yes, if just for the motor and brushings.

I would probably say yes.

The tightbore is nice, as is the spring guide and the silver wiring.

As Amos already said, All G&Gs have shitty piston heads, although you really shouldn't worry about it. Play with it for a season before you chance anything IMO

so what would a bad piston head affect? would the poor compression be very noticeable or is it something that I (as a beginner) really dont need to worry about for now?

"For now" is the key term.

I made the mistake of not buying things because I wouldnt need them 'for now'

You will learn that if you dont need them now, you will soon.

No, you wouldn't notice anything.

Really, all your losing is some FPS, but nothing major to make a difference to anything but the more serious players


As a begginer, its a great rifle as is.

i understand that fps isnt everything and bb quality, barrel quality and whatnot is more important but would the lower fps mean less range or just a longer time to get there?

a bit of both, but the difference between say, 360 and 390 would really not be noticeable.

I can help you with my experience maybe. I bought the M16 advanced version of Buyairsoft.ca, and it was supposely shooting 375fps. When testing it, it shot 330 with .2g, all I did is change the spring, it now shoots pretty consistensly around 393fps, considering the 509mm Tighbore barrel included in it, it's the same feeling than my previous G3-SG1 with upgrades. I've got told by the seller that the silver electroplated tightbore is the same for both version.

Overall, I love this gun, all I was hoping is that it would be as good as my TM G3 was, and it's actually doing very good!

just for curious, why didnt you change the piston head?
it seems like no one like it, is that bad?
