    well i prefer AEGs cause they as prone to break as GBBs are. not to mention youll fine yourself spending a lot of money on gas for those things. are u looking for a beginner gun or a more advanced one?

    AEG, for $150 the only GBBs you'll be able to afford are the not-so-good AGM ones, or the CMs with a GHK drop-in gearbox, which also isn't very good in GBB aspects.

    exactly. i would recommend getting a JG brand gun at first if u are starting out as they are only $150-200, yet theyll last you for a very long time.

    JG won't last you a long time as they are some of the worst shimmed and AoE corrected guns. You need to do a complete tuneup to have it last a long time. I would not recommend that a beginner get a gun that needs to be worked on to be reliable. People need to stop copying what they read off of other people's posts.

    You will need at least 6-8 additional GBBR magazines to skirmish with the rifle, so that adds another $200-300 to the total.

    Get an AEG. Any GBBR under $200 will need lots of work and upgrades to be fieldable.

    AEG! Gas guns are fun, but require A LOT of maintenance to keep going. During the colder seasons you will be at a severe disadvantage when using a gas gun, also. Go AEG. My GBB is fun to use, but the 30 rounds a mag, constant reloads and such just aren't worth it when playing against AEG's.

    If it's a sub-$200 GBBR, you'll need to replace pretty much all the internals, the hop up chamber and bucking, the inner barrel, etc...

    In my experience, the least expensive fieldable GBBRs would be the KJW M4 and WE G36.

    No they don't. G&G's pneumatic blowback is a solid blowback system. It avoids putting any kind of extra stress on the GB. It does not break easily.

    You can use full auto all you want with G&Gs blowback, it will literally never break during your guns life. Mechanical blowback is the kind of blowback that'll break really fast on full auto.
