Marui AK modded or go for an E&L

Recommended Posts

I need a decent reliable battle rifle.

 

Bought a pristine used Marui AK47s recently, it's bone stock and never been gamed. It shoots well, very accurate and quiet but its super plastic fantastic and I can flex the body very easily. I don't fancy it's chances in long term outdoor gaming. I had planned on throwing a king arms metal body and a g&p metal front set and wooden furniture onto it, with a ftk to bring the fps up to outdoor levels.

 

Thing is, redwolf have crazy deals on the E&L AK'S at the moment, so if I just bought one it would work out cheaper, could even sell the Marui AK to cover the cost.

 

What should I do? I'm a big Marui fan but I already have an AUG Civ and 551 so wouldn't mind branching out to a different brand and the E&Ls seem to be getting unreal reviews.

 

Thanks guys.

Get an E&L you will not regret it. Even if you get aftermarket metal body for your marui, it will still look toyish compared to E&L, not to mention nothing in airsoft in even nearly strong as E&L (full steel externals). I have their AK74MN model and would not replace it for anything.

The only part of the marui you should keep is their hopup, as it seems to be one of the best hopups you can buy in the market (correct me if I'm wrong).

 

The rest, toss or sell. Marui's only reliable on their stock spring and will break with more powerful springs.

Did the same thing dropped a Prowin Hop up rubber in with a prometheus barrel & rubber; replaced the anti reversal latch since that broke out of the box (had to replace spring for lower fps) and changed the spring guide to a prometheus I had laying around since it was ball bearings and the E&L was not (I think this was the reason).

The E&L blows my LCT AKM out of the water big time so just go E&L
