Ok I was wondering what do you guys htink is better and is better for cost.

I have to go with the Spring guns. They're obviously slower because of the single shot, but much much cheaper then AEGs and I just hate C02 guns because I don't liek the fact that you have to buy more C02 after liek 70 shots or somethign liek that. Because I read in a GUNS Magazine that they tested a Russian C02 pistol and the thing started to significantly lose power at about 75 to 80 shots. And in a Airsoft game I'm darn sure you're going to shoot more then 80 times, well at least I do anyways.

But yeah what do you guys think is better for the money and rate of fire?

Dude, even though a springer is cheaper than an AEG, it is a WASTE OF MONEY. I'd seriously save up and buy a good AEG. Springers will do you no justice........and you'll have no fun with it.

X3 and the only thing a gas replica is good for is a secondary weapon. In the winter time here in Oregon. It's not even good for that.

x4. Springers are only good for little kids wanting to play cops and robbers.

Once I played a game against my kid brother's friends; I had an AEG (my trusty MP5SD5) and they had their springers. For every one shot they were able to get off, my MP5 spurted out 20-30 (wasn't keeping an accurate count). Within minutes those that were still "alive" were desperately looking for a hiding spot; those that I'd hit all sported a line of welts and bruises usually heading up their leg and torso (aim low and the slight recoil of an AEG gently brings you up). Go with the AEG any day. In the fun for money equation, AEG tops. Gas pistols are fun and can be useful as a secondary as was mentioned above, but really no semi-auto weapon is a match.

Next to a bunch of DPM stuff that I have. It's made by ICS, metal where appropriate etc. Haven't upgraded it though, only shoots at 280fps. Good enough for CQB though, don't want it to become too painful (I was on the recieving end once!)

SWEET! I want one! I Luv the HK stuff.

Actually, if that has the SEF trigger group, it's an MP5SD2. I like the MP5SD6 myself and I see ICS makes one. Do you like that ICS? Is the suppressor metal?

Gas and spring guns are good for snipers and AEG's r good for assualt and support so it depends what role you are to decide which type is the best.

for me its AEG rules! :D :D

gas -

pros:
more powerfull fps wise and has an enourmous freaking sound. you might run away when you hear them spraying like hell. :lol: especially those modified gas guns.

cons:

you have to refill the empty cans, do not perform well during cold season and for the CO2 users you have to carry an oxygen like tank at your back. :(

springer -

pros:

cheap and easy to maintain.

cons:

do not last long. :(
