The price is pretty comparable to a SYSTEMA PTW, but GBLS got a legit recoil , very realistic trigger break, and an even better range (the sniper rifle like air-cocking system was hiding in the BCG), note that I also put an M160 power spring in it, shooting at 370 FPS with 0.45g.
Anyone considering a PTW may wanna give GBLS a thought.
As for regular AEG, I simply put a homemade recoil weight in it, like the recoil ASG EVO SCORPION I did in another thread.

Really depends on what models you want to work on:
1. M4 is usually set to have the recoil weight in the buffer tube, depends on the inner diameter of the buffer tube, you can DIY a recoil weight or mod a RS buffer in it. The dimensions of BOLT, LONEX MMC, TM Next Gen, TM Reg aeg, and even the MODIFY TREMORS kit are all different, I literally have them all.
Some of the recoil weights can be used across systems. Believe it or not, try a Modify tremor recoil weight and recoil spring in a TM next gen m4, you will be more satisfied by the enhanced recoil - the rod may need to be cut a bit shorter though.
To handle a RS spring, you may have to cut some coils off, might as well just use GBB ones which are a lot softer. You have to measure the proper length to be compressed for the stroke length of the recoil unit. A set of torque gears and motor may step in to hlep.
The GBLS is a mixture of AEG, GBB, and air-cocking sniper systems, so no mods needed for a RS buffer spring. The buffer, however, may need slight fitting and filing. The internals of GBLS are insanely high-torque, making things a lot easier for not-so-tech-savvy DIYers, you will definitely void the warranty though.
2. The recoil unit for AK, G36, SCAR, UMP are usually set to be top-loaded (on top of the gearbox), depends on how you want to arrange the space to accommodate the battery and the recoil unit, the solutions are all different.
A vivid example for a top-loaded model is here:
To maximize the recoil, I chose to use PEQ as external battery solution. I'm considering rear-wearing it and putting the battery in an m4 stock for a sleek look.
I do understand most people just want to enjoy the game, not the gun itself. I'm more into pushing my guns to the limit. I have tried high ROF (short-stroke and DSG all that) and high FPS settings, and I got sick and tired of them.
Now I'm moving on making my own recoil AEGs.
In case some may ask, yeah, I do own tons of GBBs, and most of them are HPA tapped because green gas/CO2 was not enough. If I'm such a recoil lover, why not go to the range and shoot a real steel? Well, with airsoft guns, I can safely dry fire while enjoying the felt recoil at home for cheap, with only my underwear on. I do have most of the laser target systems on the market for so-called dryfire training (laserlyte, laser ammo...fun to play!). Even RS guns are having some conversion kits now using CO2 for home defense dry-fire training - for us airsofters, would be stupid to have our RS guns converted to CO2-powered, don't you think?
For some GBB shooting:
