Stick with GBB or move to AEP?

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to upgrade my mag and ammo capacity for CQB pistol battles. My choices so far are:

 

1) Buy two TM hi cap mags circa 50 rounds each, to use with my HFC GBB, with the plan to upgrade to a TM Glock 17/18c once I have my UKARA defence.

 

2) Pick up an asg/cyma glock AEP with two hi cap mags for similar money as just two TM mags.

 

I can't pick between the two, what would you guys recommend?

personal choice. the GBB with give you power and realism, whereas the AEP will be will you a lower FPS but the ability to give higher ROF and larger magazines and no gas problems but you have the problem of battery swaps after a few mags.

 

so Gas- higher FPS, smaller mags,gas problems, generally more expensive, more realistic.

 

AEP- lower FPS, bigger mags, less technical issues (in my opinion), cheap to run, less realistic.

 

others with opinions feel free to weigh in.

Gas every time with pistols (& increasingly more so with rifles too in my case)

Even though I love my AEPs, if your other option is a Marui Glock then it's no contest really. I don't have one personally, but I've had three Cyma/ASG Glocks and two of those have broken after only a few skirmishes and needed repairing. That said my other one has lasted almost a year with no problems.

Ive had my Cyma Glock 18C for 6 months with no issues.

 

Its so much easier than a Gas pistol, just charge the battery and away you go! :)

 

While it doesnt have the range of a Gas pistol, typically I only use it for short range.
