What Are the Best Cheap Brands These Days?

Post by MCXL » Wed Apr 22, 2015 7:53 pm

So I have been out of the game for quite some time, and while my gun situation is at least somewhat sorted, I am wondering what the best sub $200 guns are these days.

It seems like JG has somewhat faded from the market. What are some other medium quality brands? I am more concerned with function over form, plastic bodies don't bother me that much (a nice metal body on a metal gun is a good bonus though.)

And please, none of the classic, "buy a TM/VFC/CA/whatever" I am well aware of the quality brands. I need something more entry level for another entry level player, not myself. I would prefer to get a G36 pattern gun, but an m4 or mp5 works as well.

The G&G raider is considered the best starter gun by most otherwise dboy A&K are decent for the price but you get what you pay for though
your gun is as unique as you make it

G&G Lower end AEG's are not upgrade friendly.

Their QC also took a stumble lately but has recovered. However, some of the bad units are still out there.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!
