    alrighty....

    I've found both a g&p as well as an ICS m4 for the same price.

    I need some opinions to waive my decision one way or the other. I know g&p is famous for externals. I like the ICS gearbox however.

    thanks in advance!

    I've never owned either of the two, but I will vouch for ICS on performance and reliability. I have the ICS L85A2 and it's running good as new and I have never had a problem with it. My gearbox came pre-shimmed and all the internals appear to be of high quality, so I would imagine that their m4's would be of equal quality. I have heard, however, that G&P is a good brand though.

    IMO both are good enough that you could basically flip a coin. Are you going to be servicing the internals much, or at all?

    Both are great, especially with ICS' split GB, but I would personally go with a G&P.

    ICS Prolines are nice. Just fix the AOE sooner or later. ICS pistons aren't the greatest.

    I'd go with the ICS personally. This forum praises G&P too much.

    For a reason lol. Split gearbox does sound nice. I've never messed with gearboxes so I'm running off externals. I say G&P you get best of both world's.

    ICS. G&P is great, but I've always felt comfortable with an ICS gun

    My vote goes to G&P, I have one and I couldn't have asked for a better performance, plus the externals seem like they're on par with their RS counterparts.

    G&P M4s feel nothing like my dad's Delton M4. From what I've seen, G&Ps are great externally though.

    ICS is NOT low quality. Never owned a G&P, but my ICS has astounding quality.

    Yeah I think I'm leaning towards the ICS. that simplified mech box can't be beat IMHO. add that the fact that I have a stroooong dislike for v2 gearboxes....yeah ICS it is.

    That's a tough one.

    I love my ICS for it's performance and ease of modification/upgrade/maintenance.

    However, the two G&P's at my house have a nicer finish and overall build quality.

    If I could do another build, it'd probably be a G&P so I could use a more unique upper/lower receiver.

    I own both a ICS & G&P right now.

    I've owned the ICS for over 2 years now without any internal problems. However it's very picky !! Finding mags that it likes is a real pain in the butt,& Finding a regular rail system for it was a pain as well.

    Owned the G&P for about 6 months and it needs a new trigger assembly and doesn't work right now..

    I LOVE my ics and will probaly never sell it because it's a tank. So for this reason I would say go with the ICS. Also if you do upgrade it's super easy due to the split gearbox design.
