So I'm starting to play airsoft by joining my University's team. Pretty much everyone gets an AEG of some sort when they start out. So after doing some research, I ran into these conclusions: Many on these forums say the JG G36c is a good quality beginner airsoft gun for it's price. I was also reading about the G&G Combat Machine M4A1 carbines. http://www.airsoftgi.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=3 They seem to have outstanding quality for their price (just between $140-$200) Metal gearbox, polymer, electric blowback, etc. But I also hear that they are "mid-priced crap". I really don't like the look of G36's so I would like to avoid them as much as possible. So if the above are true, that the Combat machines aren't as good as they seem, can anyone please tell me of a good beginner AEG of an M4A1 style specifically. Preferred price range ($100-$200) oh and also, do all magazines have that winding wheel to put bbs in the ready tube? Thanks.
