    Is there any good things about blow back? As in the bullets get jammed alot less, or is it totally useless?

    Electric Blowback is only there for effect. It does nothing to the performance, except sometimes adds to the wear and tear of the gun....

    Not to mention depending on the gun will take down your battery a lot faster.

    ...You do realize I say depending on the gun intentionally right? I was thinking about my ares g36c which got the life time cut in half by blowback.

    Woah now, no need to go all bold on me. I was saying something so someone didn't miss understand you and think that all blowbacks are junk.

    Ha all bold good one, sorry if that came off aggressive and I don't think all blowbacks are junk in fact, I liked my ares g36c even with blowback just saying it drains battery. Although I have heard G&G pneumatic blowback messes with compression.

    Now I'm gonna go cry in a corner. But honestly I've never heard about G&G's blowback messing with compression.

    My g&g gr15 does fine with compression even with the blowback system in it, it may very from case to case but mine works beautifully

    It doesn't mess with compression, it just lowers FPS because some of the air is being used to push the bolt back.

    Ah ok I stand corrected thank you, this is good because I'm getting an G&G mp5 in a trade and if it doesn't have funky compression just great.
