Hi there, I'm about to buy my first AEG.

My options are the G&P M4 special operations http://www.zerooneai...roducts_id=5764

Or

A mates ICS M4 para (a limited edition that's a few years old)

They are both all metal but would like to read your thoughts on build quality and reliability.

Thanks in advance

G&p..... by far.
Best externals without buying an ino or systema,
Internals are brilliant, demonic Rof

ICS also has issues in that it hardly takes any aftermarket parts.

If your budget allows it G&P, if it doesn't, G&G make a gun called the CQB-S essentially the same thing without aim point and G&P's outstanding externals and internals, it is a 100 cheaper though. It's your choice ICS make some good stuff but G&P is much superior :)

My site's hire guns are ICS M4s and I think they're really very very good, they outrange my MP5 and they're miles better than my gas M16. That said though, I've never used a G&P one, so I can't make any comparisons.

As an ICS owner I love the split gearbox which is an ICS feature. Found it very easy to work on my M4 v my TM MP5 so I would go ICS, but then again my mates both got ICS as well so we can swap mags and stuff easily.

Where I play everyone says G&G and looking spares / body kits, etc there certainly easier to find bits for. That said ICS stuff is out there as well :)

And better internals tbh, its not a split gearbox but oracle internals are still better (imo)
I've had both and although the ICS was really good, it doesn't touch my g&p

G&P HANDS DOWN! :D
First gun! Must be excited!
I havent much experience as others on the forum (softing for less than a year)
I personally own a G&P M4 CQB/V.S.B.R (looks exactly like the one on the link)
i find G&P guns are reliable and they have never let me down.
But it depends on your budget i guess.
If its your first gun i would say go for the ICS.

almost every g&p m4 i heard about has had fixing, but ive heard little about people at the site i go to fixing their m4s and they use a lot of them.
sights are there for a reason, you dont need a bigger battery, you need better eyes.
