    G&P GBB M4A1 family

    It's by GB-Tech. Most of the HK shops have it. I probably got it from WGC. I think I may have done a review on it which should be around here somewhere. That was my backup plan. Mostly when I've used my WA in games before I was just screwing around with it, so I didn't mind going back to the car to refill. This weekend I intend to make proper use of the G&P. I have a specter gear pouch that fits this thing around here somewhere. Lots of cordura laying about my place atm as I search for this and that.

    I thought I would mention, since I finally bothered to try it, this little guy is good for two full WA mag fills (dry to splashing) plus a little extra: Now to find a spot for it on my rig...

    This is just using a bathroom scale mind you so only accurate to .5 lbs but here's the best comparison I can muster... My WA is configured identically to my RS, that being Troy CQB SPC style (basically carbine + vltor clubfoot + MRF-10 + troy battle sights + tango down covers and such), like in my sig. The WA doesn't have it's metal body yet but is rocking a steel OB. WA = 6.5 LBS, RS = 7. Subjectively, I can't tell them apart on hand-feel alone save for the grips (which is deliberate on my part). Balance, weight, I can't tell based on that.

    Did you get the RAS version? The normal version has an aluminum barrel and the RAS version has steel. The steel does make the balance feel more realistic. It is 90% of the reason I added a steel barrel to my WA, trying to get it to feel as much like my RS as possible. My AEG M4 had a steel barrel on it before I cannabalized it for parts to build up my WA, now it is back to the stock aluminum as the RIS I had to put on wouldn't work with my Guarder steel barrel. It's like night and day. I got the A4 with RAS thus I don't have to worry about it this time around. I held the normal A4 in the store, and wow was it light for being huge. Anyway if you did get the normal one you should be able to get a steel barrel for it, they do exist as evidenced by my own.

    I saw a second A4 when I bought mine. However I think they probably got them at more than the SC store, and who knows how many they have alloted for online sales too. Definitely worth giving them a call if you're concerned. They're open for another three hours.

    Hai Flo. Don't worry, both will be there in full effect.

    Inbound, ETA unknown. I noticed a few things with mag insertion which I'll cover in more detail later. But two pieces of advice I would give include the above, and also a light touch on the mag release may be needed at least until it breaks in a bit.

    Yes, on my A4. However it appears that they all have CQB length IBs regardless of outer barrel configuration. I do intend to get a longer IB in mine eventually but I do need to keep it around 400 to meet local field limits. Thanks for the info!

    Hit up SC AEX last night with a buddy of mine, we each walked out with one each. At least one other customer bought one last night while we were there too. They were getting a lot of attention. They had just gotten the shipment that afternoon and hadn't gone through and inventoried them yet. Initially we thought we were out of luck and would have to come back today since they weren't ready for sale. But, the guys there were nice enough to break 'em out for us right then and there. We just had to wait around for an hour or so while they unpacked them and did the count and such. As a result we got to check out every configuration available as they got them ready and brought them out, it was pretty cool to say the least. And yes, the trades are all intact. I left with an M16A4 (picked up an M203 to go with it) and my buddy chose the M4A1. We spent some time checking them out at home, comparing them to our realsteel and basically giving them the once-over. We're very impressed with them to say the least. I have a WA so I knew what I was getting into but this my buddy's first GBB rifle. He kept remarking, "It's too real, it just feels so wrong." Years of California conditioning I suppose. Got a game this weekend, more to be told I'm sure. Hoping to do a full and detailed write up on these soon. One last note, I did an initial chrono last night and verified the FPS, hit between 385 and 390 FPS over ten shots with one that broke 400 (Propane, .2g, probably around 50F, Guarder chrono).
