Speedloaders do not work with the G&P without an adaptor, which wasn't included and I can't find anywhere. Their feed lips are not the same as an AEG magazine.
Fun is a pro when using the GBBr, but are there any other advantages of using a GBBr when compared to an AEG?
You can't share magazines with your teammates, it cost alot of money to run (70-100 dollar mags) even upgrades are quite expensive (100 bucks for a tightbore), if your worried about range TM rifles have great hopup.
Unless your willing to spend alot of money, you won't have a good setup using the G&P GBBr. For me, I usually bring 6 midcaps and a highcap into a skirmish, that is 7 magazines, with almost 1k in rounds. With the G&P, lets break it down.
G&P M4 RIS - 750 shipped
or plain M4 - 550
Magazine- 6x S-type cost around 480, or 6 normal for 600
That is a 1k- 1.5k setup, how many people here can honestly say they can just drop 1.5k into a rifle and 6 magazines?
The only reason I suggest the WE is because it is cheaper to run, it still has all most of the same disadvantages of the G&P/WA.
I'm not bashing on the GBBr, i'm just stating facts and trying to be reasonable.
If you guys can stop being bias towards the GBBr and look at it purely from a objective stand point you will see that an AEG is better than a GBBr IN TERMS OF SKIRMISH.
In terms of fun and training there is NO DOUBT that the GBBr reigns supreme, but if your looking for a main skirmish rifle, this is not the thing to be looking at.
The GBBr is skirmishworthy, but it is not very practical for being a everyweek skirmisher.
All in all, it all comes down to what makes the buyer happy.I'm really happy with mine and that is what counts.
Just trying to answer slu's question about field performance, since that seems to be a deciding factor of whether he buys it or not.
Here are my ratings:
Personally- 10/10 (not gonna spend 700+ on something I don't like)
