While I'd agree we are talking about milsim events. Longevity is a must for these and GBB's simply are not up to the task of yet in that form. Besides, nothing is stopping you from running low caps on a gas gun such as a Daytona or Polarstar, or the upcoming competitors.Yes they do but they are pretty pricey, I saw one for a p* for $225+/-. It may just be because I'm gas bias but if your gonna get a gas gun just get real gbbr mags. It forces you to be a better player...
Stock GBBRs maybe. But someone who is serious about running milsim with a GBBR would not be running a stock gun. Or not for long at least...While I'd agree we are talking about milsim events. Longevity is a must for these and GBB's simply are not up to the task of yet in that form.
Im not sure if you know this but people can use "real" cap mags in AEGs and P*s too. Or maybe just put 34 BBs in a midcap if they want realism.GBB's are for me, only considered true Mil-Sim. You are trying to replicate real life wars/soldiers. They have 30 rounds in their magazines or 4 rounds in the tube(For me M1014) A PolarStar with hundreds, if not thousands of rounds at your disposable is not Mil-Sim. There isn't a single way that anyone can try to justify that. Neither is an AEG.
True Mil-Sim Purists are not running with PolarStar or AEGS. It's just that simple.
Yes OOTB GBBR's may not be reliable, but since RA-TECH and a few other manufactures came out, They've become more reliable.
Call it for what is. GBB's change how you play, and well how you do everything in airsoft.
34 rounds because AEGs dont fire the last 3 to 4 rounds in a magazine. Second of all if you think a GBBR sounds like a real steel weapon you may want check your hearing. You are forgetting a GBBRs biggest flaw, it has to be relatively warm out to use it. And if you are playing anywhere with a winter or below 50 degrees fahrenheit, you may only be able to use it during half the year.I am aware but first 34 rounds isn't real second AEGs still are non blowback with horrible electric sound. Second polarstars have lines through the grip with a tank on your back.
Just loading up a gun with real caps doesn't make it mil sim. You still need the sound, feel and recoil of a gbb.
