skip to 2:50 for King Arms GBBR.

wait $60 a magazine? 10 magazines= 600 dollars? Even if it's half the price of what WA used to be that's still expensive... I think I'll stick with my AEG and maybe KWA's new RM4-A1 until the prices lower down even more..
KWA LM4, VFC M4, KWA m9

Fixed

Yeah, the price of magazines pretty much kill skirmishing with GBBRs. That, along with weather affecting performance, is pretty much why AEGs still dominate the field. Cold weather affects AEGs too but not as severely as it does GBBs. There are air-rig setups out there but those can be expensive.

The good thing that comes of this is that a GBBR got past the ATF. Hopefully, more will follow so that the King Arms M4 GBBR isn't the only easily obtainable GBBR to US customers. Not that there's anything wrong with the King Arms M4 GBBR, but I do know it uses aluminum internals while other GBBRs on the market have already adopted steel internals.

Yeah, you did. I checked what you typed in, and then assumed that the video you wanted to post was the one ASGI uploaded recently. I saw that the url was almost the exact same except the youtube link had a w at the end. I added it and now it works ;) .

He said the mags for this one will be $40-50 each compared to the conventional $60~. Not that the mags for the KA GBBR will be $60. I'll stick with my MP9, probably outranges this thing anyway, mags are cheaper, and it fits my light loadout better.

I'm on the same boat as you; I don't want the King Arms M4 either. I'm just glad the ATF has actually approved a GBBR which hopefully will lead to more and more acceptance of the GBBR as an airsoft gun instead of a "readily-convertible machine gun" :roll: .

I like that its the first ATF approved GBBR M4, but really, $40 a mag is still too expensive for 30 rounds.

On a side note, KWAs RM4 may just make me get ANOTHER KWA :mrgreen:

KWA RM4-A1 is still new and the magazines will be $30+ so GBBR or RM4-A1 they're both going to be expensive.

Yeah, but the RM4 can use regular AEG magazines as well if I'm not mistaken and I've got plenty of those.

I'm going to wait on it anyway until I can see the internal build quality of them and see how reliable they actually are.
