If you can, visit a shop to hold some.

 

Or get your hands on as many as you can at your local site for a feel.

 

Or do what I do and buy what you think looks nice and shiny.

I love the 416 style m4 but can’t decide on which make to get either the g&g vfc ics or tm version of the gun I know tm are known to be the best but they are expensive which other make would you suggest

I have a g&g SRXL, never let me down. I don't know many people that have had a g&g and had an issue with it.

 

But I agree with Duff, go somewhere and hold something. You might like the look of a vector for example and then when you actually grab one it's uncomfortable... It's your money and time and the end of the day, don't waste it on people's opinions

Another vote for G&G from me. You won’t do much better for the money to be honest. 

 

Ignore the mosfet issues, it’s mostly down to people using 7.4 Lipo instead of 11.1

G&G always get a good recommendation - and for good reason.

 

How many guns do you currently own?

They're one of the best budget friendly AEGs on the market.

I'd never heard of them either til I picked one up at a too good to be true price, and it's amazing. The performance is on the sort of upper end of average. However it's the build quality that impressed me so much, it's absolutely rock solid and one of the best made guns I've ever had. And full of nice features like quick change springs.

Okay well I'll always be an advocate for the firehawk. It's just a fun gun with how loud it is, and very easy to move around so great for CQB/quicker play styles.

 

That said - just have a browse on patrolbase looking at various guns that have a good reputation. (G&G/Ares for example) and see if you can find a gun that you like the look of.

I'll never not recommend Specna.

 

However, everyone is correct in saying a G&G will stand you in good stead..

 

If you want to avoid looking like a rookie with a raider, plump the extra few notes on a CM18.

 

You get the MK18 looks, and more rail space, no triangle sight post, so gives you a bit more scope for the top rail.

 

Plus unless you get up close you'd struggle to tell it was a G&G Combat Machine, so you won't have to worry about people looking down on you for having a newbie gun (they won't, or they shouldn't, but some new players worry about looking new, which is silly)

 

And they look cool with the tan body and black furniture.

 

Here's a post I did a few months back regarding the CM18:

 

Either a G&G CM18 (Looks loads better than the CM16) or a Specna Arms SA-A** or SA-B**.

 

You'll find they'll do you proud for long enough until you want to go to the next tier up :)

 

Here's the CM18 btw.. much better looking than the raider:

Then, the same gun with different furniture on:

Lewis that CM18 looks amazing.

 

Is that rail system stock or modded? Can't find it
