CA g36c

I really am having a hard time on deciding on a CA G36C or a or a CA M15A4 Sportline , I play both field and CQB so I'm wondering if a G36C would do for both or just stick with the m4. I really cant put a finger on which one would be better suited for me. I like both models and but my main concern is durability and quality (are all CA the same quality)!

Thank's
Geoff

Well, barrel length is the same, so performance wise they'll be identical.

The CA36 body is also really awesome as far as durability is concerned. It's not ABS like TM or JG, but a very strong type of nylon.

So basically it comes down to which one you like better.

I loved my CA G36, I regret selling it. It's a great CQB platform.

The g36c's inner barrel is 249mm and i beleive the other is at least 363mm (or 409 don't remember) so for cqb purposes the g36 is going to be easier to get around corners with. Also there have been some pretty bad reviews about the sportline family. The body is plastic and the internals are sub par for CA. Get the G36c it's a better gun....BUT... carrying the mags are a bitch. They're twice the width of an m4 and the nubs used to link together the mags often get snagged in pouches. However, the G36c is by far a superior choice.

I agree with what chasnemesis said, if you want a classic army go for the non sportline version, It cost a little extra but well worth the money. All my guns are CA and i have one PTW. I am going to get another G36c soon to add to the collection, but my vote Classic Army all the way.

the G36 has a V3 mechbox. its much more durable than the V2 and much less prone for malfunctions. you can also use it in colder weather much more reliably than the V2. get the CA G36. I just got a G36 fullsize in a trade. im going to be converting it to a C as soon as i get enough $$$

i'd get the G36c if it's not sportline. sportline is the cheaper version. and in canada they cost just about the same... so you might as well get the better version. At any rate though i think the m4 is a better alternative due to the parts availability and the quality of it.

Not really. A sportline will cost around $300-400 and a brand new non sportline will be between $500-700

You've seen lots of CA Sportline MP5's for $450+ on here? Type in CA Sportline into the sold AEG thread, almost all are below $350, with the exception of some really modded ones. First few being $300 exactly.
