Just go JG Polymer...100 new.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

I'd say find a platform you like or a brand you like then have a tech turn it into what you want.

I don't know who exactly makes the EF model.

But the one I pictured is an A&K based shorty.

Both company's are rebranders. And at the 100.00 price point...you really can't get much cheaper for them without getting into "plastic" gear boxes.

I've heard that the Elite Force CQC has Ares internals.

And Ares internals is Not a good thing stock.

Micro-switch trigger has voltage issues. You must run a MOSFET and take the trigger out of the power loop in high voltage uses.

Mechbox is not completely upgrade-able, again proprietary parts.

Plus the mechbox does not play nice in receivers other than Ares units.

I have it at my work.

You can handle the prowin if you dremel out the lower. It is designed after a legacy TM split hop-up design.
