    if your on a budget, find a way to get a JG s-system or a combat machine. both are great rifles and can be upgraded down the road easily and fairly cheap

    Between the jg and combat machine which would you recommend? Which has higher fps, range and available parts?

    The Stryke series are COMPLETELY plastic. Buffer tube and outer barrel too. I believe they are worse than lancer. Trust me, personal experience there.

    Ugh. Yeah. Go with a JG or a DBoys... Or any Chinese gun for that matter :) lol

    The STRYKE series is pretty much a "Nerf" gun on steroids lol.

    Compared to other AEG's, it's pretty low end.

    It's a SRC OEM gun. Strictly plastic externals and SRC internals. Airsoft Megastore special lol xD

    Between jg, g&g, and dboys which do you guys recommend the most? I will be getting the version with the rails, and preferably a removable carry handle.

    Thats all personal experience. I had my G&G for a year without a single problem before I saved up for my VFC SCAR. Other people have had G&G that break after a couple months. I have personally seen a JG break after 3 months but I have seen them last for a year as well.
    They are the same quality and to me its all personal preference or looks. They both are up-gradable with the exact same parts since they use the same GB. But most say the JG has slightly better internals so I say go with that

    I'd take the G&G or JG. I personally hate DBoys besides their 416's. The magwells don't fit ANYTHING besides DBoys and JG. Lancer is better than Stryke, LoL

    Well its an AMS special so of course lancer will be better. Not according to them though. :D I'd go with the JG over the G&G, its no secret that G&G has its problems, even though some people haven't had those problems.

    Overall for a M4 model I'd suggest a JG or AGM. I've seen a higher ratio of them lasting longer then others. We abuse them as rentals and they've held up for over 2 years.

    G&G is a third choice. But the cheapest priced gun. Average gun for the budget. But you'll still be taking your chances.

    DBoys is alright. Little heavy for the cast pot metal. Internals are ok. But I've seen a higher fail rate then the 2 brands above. Plastic hop up is terrible lol.

    A&K have pretty nice externals. But internals have a pretty high fail rate. Seen these a lot more then others in the broken pile along with the DBoys. But there M249 and M60 series weirdly last a little longer internally lol.

    Everything else is a little higher in price. And you get what you pay for.
    All else fails, look for something used locally.

    Don't get the S-system unless you want to be tired after an hour, go with standard M4 with an RIS, JG has one for $150 on Evike, and they have an 18% off code all the time, that's your best bet, I have 2 JGs and the quality is pretty good, would suggest some black paint for the recievers though, that gray plastic is ugly IMO

    Certainly go with a JG. AVOID MEGASTORE AT All COSTS! I have had a DBoys for three years. Hasn't failed me yet, I've done tons of internal and external upgrades. My DBoys M4A1 has taken beating after beating, has a metal hopup (in response to the plastic comment earlier), and is still going strong. If you are gonna complain about the weight of a pot metal gun (pot metal on this isn't all that bad actually) you need to build some muscle. HOWEVER, I have heard plenty of stories about DBoys failing, so I would go with a JG, but if you want some internal and external durability, and with a little bit of internal work the makings of a great gun, then a DBoys is for you.
    I recommend a JG.

    As stated before, I have had a JG S-system, and it was REALLY heavy, hovering around 10 or 11 pounds, so I built it into this


    And after a while (and the gift of an RIS from a friend) has turned into this godly beast, so I you want the S-system ad don't mind the weight, go for it, if you want something lighter get a standard M4 with rails

    Ahh makes sense. Evike and GI all the way! AMS may have good looking prices but customer service is bad. I would go with GI if I were you.
