Whichever you like better?

Sig556 is V3 mechbox so probably beefier.

Also depending on which brand of gun you buy, and how much money you're willing to spend upgrading...

Out of the box, which performs better? and which company makes the best model? ICS? G&G? CYMA? there are so many diff models. i will spend 350 to 450, and i dont feel like upgrading right away.

You just asked two contradicting questions. You have to pick a brand before you can compare guns.

Mind me asking on where you plan on getting one?

Why dont you start off by filling out your profile such as location so we can help direct you to the proper information better.

Also you will have to look into getting Age Verified if your 18+ and here in Canada.

From my understanding of the SG556, the only makers are CYMA (although there has been allot of debate on whether CYMA actually makes it) and the King Arms. Between those two the KA is the obvious choice.

For the 416 you have the options of DBoys, Jing Gong, and the discontinued VFC. If you can get your hands on a VFC, then its the obvious choice.

For the high-end of each you will be looking at closer to $600-$800. If this seems to high then you can just save up your money as buying the cheaper clones isn't always a good idea. Try looking up the reviews for each of the guns and make the decision for yourself.

mach1airsoft,section8,buyairsoft.ca. There are many places to get them from. I guess im asking which company makes the best model of each gun, then have the two best compared. the prices seem to be quite similar.

Sig= cunt to work on. Fire selector alone will drive most people nuts. Many gun docs will charge extra
416= super simple to strip, more readily available mags and parts, thus more options.

416 all the way

Im 24 in Hamilton Ontario. The closest place to get AV'd is in toronto (as far as i can tell) its not easy for me to get their with work in all. Im new to this and am just looking for my first gun. I was looking at a SR 23 URX, but couldnt find anywhere to get one, so i decided on getting one of the two in discussion. The model of each is the real question. I would prefer the sig, but from what ive seen, the CYMA model doesnt look so good.

here is the thing. if you have cash, these are the best in their fields:

556 = G&G. Ive read a lot of good reviews about it. Looks like a solid build and a great gun. upgraded, the thing should shoot real nice

416 = VFC (Vega Force Company). This company makes the best 416 hands down. you wont be disappointed. Stock, it will serve you well (probably better than G&G). Once upgraded, it doesn't matter. It all depends on the upgrades you put into each.

G&G doesn't make a 556, only CYMA and King Arms.

There's the Hurricane kit for the 416 also, discontinued but used ones crop up from time to time.

I have the VFC 416 and it's my hands down favorite.

You've got the 550 on your mind, my friend.
