So, I'm looking for basically not an M4, and the G36 appeals too me. Clean, ambidextrous, somewhat futuristic, its a nice looking gun. Both guns have good externals, but not sure about how the Elite Force's internals stack up to the ICS's internals. ICS has very good internals, hopup, and pre-installed tightbore barrel. Also has a decent motor. The Elite Force has blowback, but is it a gimmick? Anyways, one pro of the ICS is it takes M4 mags, which I have plenty of.
