Title says it all. Also, if you can please post why. Just looks? Functionality or performance?

I'd say Glock 19 over a 17 due to it being more ergonomic and reliable (GBBwise that is), and I'd choose my MK23 over a 1911 style any day. So I couldn't vote, but two things about your gun choices, the G17 has a shorter (faster cycling rate) than the Para, and a different grip angle that makes it more suited to instinctive shooting. Add in a lower profile (distance between the hand and the sights)............. G17 hands down. Gonna vote now, just because I've done some pretty awesome things with Glocks instinctively, where I find 1911 style guns awkward (as awkward as Armalites in fact).

Well I have an M4, but ok :P So you think that the Glock feels better overall? I'm going to handle the two before I decide for myself, but I want others opinions on their experiences.

im a huge fan of 1911 style guns, and i voted to represent this but now that i think about it go for the glock, the double stack 1911s have huge grips ( and i have big hands) where as the glocks are also very comfy.

ive had both and i prefered them like this single stack 1911/usp>glock> double stack 1911

I have both. They are too different IMO.
The P14 is a lot bigger and heavier than the glock. The slide lock is more awkward to actuate. If you have smaller hands, the G17 is going to be a better fit. P14 mag is a lot bigger than that of a 1911. double stack vs single.

break it down to what brands of each you are considering and it'll make it easier for people to help you.

Well a friend that has quit airsoft is selling it to me. He can't remember the exact brand, but he says it's one of the top brands. Don't worry though, I will conform this, and handle them myself. I love the look of both, price is crazy, so I can't decide.

That's good...I don't think it's a lemon since he's used it before, albeit not much. He wouldn't lie to be either, so I doubt he'd sell me something broken or about to break haha. I'm still torn though. I was thinking about getting a chrome slide for the one I get...but I haven't looked into that yet. haha

Noone makes a good p14 (kjw p14 = out of the question)

TM glock 17 100% for the win. Solid, reliable. Accurate. Many parts available. Need I go on? Pm me.

I like mine too and still have them even though I put them up for sale at one point.

price is crazy as in high or really good?

I added a cheap HFC G17 to dual wield with but the TM gen 3 is far superior even with the plastic slide. The HFC only seems to shoot harder but it's probably due to the heavier metal slide.

The WE P14 I have is great but there is some play in the slide and mag well which causes it to rattle a little when you shake it.

By far my favourite pistol is the TM MK23. NBB yes but more accurate and powerful. the mini silent hand canon!!

Well I'm not sure if it's TM yet...I'll update you guys when I find out. Then it would go well with my CA M4

Airsoft surgon makes extra light metal slides that require NO modification. I could have done it with a blindfold. (any requests for a youtube vid?)

The TM hop up is regarded (among gbb's) the very best in the market. (makes for a VERY accurate pistol)

The grip is made of (once again) VERY strong plastic. A cheap slip on rubber grip makes it feel like gold.

You REALLY can't go wrong with the TM 3rd generation glock 17.

Did I mention TM recently released a TM 3rd gen with a ported barrel, exteneded magwell & race style grip? (im not sure what else to call it :\ )


-alex is s0o0o0 tired.

I have a bunch of KJW P14 magazines lying around here but haven't been able to find a P14 fornkyseld

Since you are discussing a GBB go with the G17 only if it's a Marui or a clone

Personally, I'm not a fan of either Glocks or 1911s, but if I had to choose one, I'd go with the P-14 .45. Big round, big mag, big gun. The Glock looks like a Cabbage-patch Kid compared to that beast. Plus you can't go wrong when you go Canadian!

Making fun of glocks tsk tsk...

Still not a fan of guns made out of plastic. Prefer my 1911 over the glocks..... but I wouldn't mind having both. Voted .45.
