    So after hearing good things about the 416 and my good knowledge of the SR7, Ive come to the conclusion that I should get one of these guns. What do u guys think?

    VFC. KWAs aren't all that great for the price.

    416. Better performance and a little bit more unique.

    Definitely the 416. I have only heard good things about it.

    Even though I'm one of the only KWA lovers on this forum, even I would pick the VFC. Just because there externals are amazing and so is the performance. If I were to choose reliability I would go with the KWA, which is a major factor for me when choosing an airsoft gun.

    If someone legitimately said the KWA, i would leave this forum forever.

    Yeah like I said I would choose the VFC. But KWA's are still great guns.

    If they were cheaper. I know a guy who got a KWA M4 for $150, and it's pretty good.

    Well I got my KWA G36c for $285 which I wouldn't say is expensive. I like it so of course I'm going to back kwa up. Why would I dis a manufacturer when I'm happy with the product. I don't need people on this forum telling me KWA suck when there actually great guns and most of them have probably never held one. I like the gun and that's all that matters.

    I mean that for the price they should be better than they are. They don't suck, but there are better choices in that same price range.

    Yeah I know it was either a KWA or G&P. I'm all about reliableility and lets face it KWA has G&P beat by miles in stock reliability.

    Ummm no they win in QC, if you get a stock G&P and a stock KWA both with no defects, they should last around the same time.

    Well I guess you are right I constantly hear about motors failing, pistons and gears stripping in G&P's. I also hear that KWA's don't have good piston's, and I have heard of there gears stripping. But I run a 9.6 so I will get a long while out of my gun.

    Funny, because none of the G&Ps I've seen at my fields have EVER had that problem, except this one kid who used a 11.1v lipoly.

    Yeah at your feild, I'm getting my info from many resources. And yes if you run a 11.1 lipo in a stock G&P or KWA you will have these problems eventually. That's why I use a 9.6.

    9.6 nimh's suck. 7.4 lipos last longer, more power without a 11.1 blast and way better trigger response. And they are about 30$cheaper with charger and all.

    Way to round it up: G&P has KWA on externals, motor, stock performance
    KWA has......pistols.

    I have 3 people who use G&Ps and all have had them for 2+years and going strong.
    The KWA users(many) think they are bad asses so they use 11.1s all day long. Not a single one knows what a mosfet is. KWAs just are popular because they are marketed in USA.

    9.6 don't suck it depends on the brand of battery. I am not a rof freak like a lot of people, I'm all about reliability.I have been thinking of getting a 7.2 lipo though. OK enough of this we are getting off topic.

    Yes, they do suck. 7.4v give you:

    Longer lifetime
    Higher or same ROF
    Cost the same sometimes less
    Smaller size

    This is a dead thread in my eyes. VFC....obviously wins hands down. It's comparing a ferrari to a mini cooper.
