What gun to buy ? HELP

Hello,So I have been out of the game for a looooong time.I play paintball level but its kinda getting boring now. I was looking at these two guns that I would run with a 7.4/11.1 Li-po batteries since I have tons from R/C cars. I just do not want to destroy the gearbox, I want the gun to last me a while.

I have a budget of $270 for just a gun. I have 100's of batteries and a $200 high end charger so that is out of the budget.
Below are my three main options I have seen, please refer me to the better one of these two, or show me something different that you would
suggest to me.

http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/2860...AEG-Rifle.aspx

I would buy a Mosfet for the Sr25 if I go that route. I would only use it in burst and single.


Thanks for your help!

the G&P gearbox does not look reinforced. So would you guys not recommend it for a lipo ?

Fix the first two links, they're not working.

The G&P M4 is excellent but in order to run any gun safely/reliably on an 11.1v LiPo you're going to want to put a mosfet in the gun. A 7.4v will run fine without any issue. After you fix the links I'll be able to see what the guns are and give you my opinion.

SR25 may seem like a cool choice but in the end you'll want the G&P M4. The M4 uses the most common version gearbox, mags, parts/accessories, and also you won't need big pouches for the mags. The SR25 will need larger mag pouches while the M4 will use standard pouches that are a dime a dozen. Get the G&P, buy some mags, and use a 7.4v lipo.

^ what he said, also look at airsoftgi.com you can get the echo 1 platinum which runs stock on lipo, has vfc externals, and with coupon code and free gift comes out to 280 with a ris.

Had an sr-25 and it was a nice gun, but it was a beast to lug around all day. Same time the mag price kills it for me

use coupon code g4airsoft for 20% off

also you are able to pick a free gift, so you can add a ris through the free gift.

Bam, cheaper and much better quality.
