G&G G96 Q's

I've looked around, found some "ok" video reviews and a couple written ones, and come to the conclusion that the G&G G96 is a solid platform. If you think other wise, please tell me.
I wanted to get this rifle and make an HPA rig on it, to make it more consistent. As of now, I will be spending $499 on the gun, bipod, scope, rings, and BBs (.36g). On top of that, I still wanted to make the HPA rig, but I have little to no tech experience and have never had a gas sniper before, only springers. How much would the typical rig cost to make? I desperately want to get back into sniping, so thats not a question you guys need to ask.
Later on, I will get barrel and hop-up upgrades, but as of now, that's all I want to do to the gun.

Does anyone have any opinions on whether or not this would be a good choice, or anything else. I am open to anyones opinions and won't attack you if you think differently from me. And if you don't think the G96 is one of the better guns to get (in that price range) please guide me towards a different one, whether it be gas, or spring.
I just need some clarification on what I should be doing.
Also, I am confused on what exactly a HPA rig is, I know it makes your gun more consistent, but is it like a paintball gun where you have an airtank hooked up to the gun (in airsoft, the mag?)? Just want some clarification thats all.
Any other comments, questions for me, or words of wisdom are welcome.

G&G G96 Q's

If your already spending that amount, I'd just say spend the money on a Tanaka. An HPA rig connects a tank to the magazine. Building an air rig also requires some steady hands for drilling into magazines that aren't cheap. I believe there is a pretty comprehensive review of the G96 on ASR.

G&G G96 Q's

Ok I will just say this now. Personally don`t get the G96. I would go with the well gas g96 or something named like that. It looks alot nice and has a MONOPOD!!!
Here is the link to one.
http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_i...ducts_id=33244
Remeber tapping a mag is VERY VERY hard. If you shake when you are nervous don`t do it. Screwing up one time and losing 40 dollars is NOT fun.
There is alot of people that can help you with hpa. Just check the tanaka thread alot of them hpa their guns. Personally gas gun can be very picky and aren`t worth the trouble. Did I mention they are loud and costly. Buy a bolt action rifle you will like it better. Or you can just get my KJW MK1 check the commerce for my thread. It is posted JG Bar10 Mp5 and something like it.

Taping a mag is not hard.


There are a few people that have that rifle on this site, and they like the rifle. Take what you hear in reviews with a grain of salt. Though G&G is a great company so you really can't go wrong.

Exactly. it does require a little skill, but my no means is it hard. Doesnt take a rocket scientist to drill a hole that pretty much straight, and run a tap threw it.

Basically, an HPA rig is what you explained (OP). Its more than just a tank and mag, there are usually two regulators and hose/fittings in between, but the hose/fittings are the cheapest part.

G&G G96 Q's

You guys are so mean to me XD. Just because I don`t have steady hands. Lol I hate why I shake alot when I am nervous. Thank goodness of adrenaline I don`t shake when I take the shot. But yeah if you can do it do it. The reward I think it a bit better than the risk.

G&G G96 Q's

I've used a few G&G G96's in the past and they are a good solid gun, however I would recommend the Well version as it's the same price, about the same gun and comes with an AW .338 stock which looks a hell of a lot nicer, but its your choice really. adding a HPA rig wouldnt be too hard but then if your spending that amount of money you could buy a much nicer Tanaka. Just what you prefer and what you want to do with it really.

G&G G96 Q's

I would definitely make the HPA rig if I got the G96, but why would I get the tanaka? Isn't it the same thing as the G96 except it doesn't have the power bolt and all those other parts in it stock? That's what I have been hearing a lot. Anyway, if I did the HPA rig, would there be any reason for me to get an extra mag? Or would I just be feeding BBs into the chamber after I cycle the bolt?

I looked at the WELL version, and came to the conclusion that, if it's like a lot of their other products, quality control is going to be awful. Plus, I like the cleaner look of the G&G
So far I've saved up around $350 for this stuff specifically, and will be getting a lot more money in, in the weeks to come.


EDIT:
I looked around some more for other rifle options and wanted to know which one you guys think would be a better platform. Including the ones you guys suggested. If you had 550 dollars to spend.
G&G G96
Well G96
KJW M700


All of them getting an HPA rig, (opt) bipod, scope, rings, .36 bbs
If you think, for example, the M700 is better than the rest, give a brief rating as to why, out of /10:
Durability:
Upgradeability:
Externals:
Stock Internals:
Overall:

G&G G96 Q's

Well G96. Get a new madbull bucking and barrel and get a ares steel hammer. Plus Hpa rig it. It will be a sexy beast. Personally I perfer much more then the G&G. Also it is 100 dollars cheaper and LOOKS COOL!
Actually Well stuff has gotten better over the years and if you remeber all the Utg L96 and stuff are made by well and are pretty good.
Here is the link again.
http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_i...ducts_id=33245

Okay to what you want.
Durability 10/10 It is metal obviously.
Upgradeablity. 10/10 It can take G&G parts if you really want and can take some madbull stuff. Besides that Gas gun aren`t that upgradeablity. Oh yeah you will need some new o-rings for all the mags you tap.I would use blue madbull buckings too.
Externals. 9/10 Very nice but the stock is a bit annoying sometimes.
Stock Internals. 8/10 Good just need a new barrel and such.
Overall 10/10 Just get it.

Here a review on it.


Here a upgrade video on it.

Watch his channel It is mostly on the Well G96.

If you were to ask me what to use I would tell you use .4 Matrix or madbull bbs.

G&G G96 Q's

Doesn't the G&G have those stripper clips in the mag? So there would be no real reason to unhook the hose. You would just have to drop the mag, take out the empty stripper clip, slide in a new one, load mag back in rifle and shoot.

That would be much easier than trying to unhook the hose, and rehook all while trying to stay silent.

No clue. Never seen one in person. Either way, speed loaders are pretty quiet too

Im not a fan of any L96's, unless they are very diffreret looking from the rest (Woogie's TM 96 for example), so Ill just stick around for the HPA rig and such. (They are actully pretty easy to build too, and I'm in the process of building one for a friends KJW M700 scout rifle)

I know for a fact the WELL has the clip you are talking about. Just to make sure like the ares mags have those like 15 round stick mags
Here a link

G&G G96 Q's

Thanks for that review metallicafatcat, pointed out a lot of issues. I'm still stuck on whether getting the Well would be a good idea or not. I mean, it IS made in china, and we all know for a fact that they usually don't have the most amazing quality control.
Nelson, I whached the video, and I think he is mostly talking about how some parts on his rifle broke, so he did DIY mods to fix them. I really don't want cheapo pot metal internals like he is talking about.

Anyone with the KJW M700 have any issues, complaints, fun facts, etc.. on it. Keeping my options open. Mgunner, could you talk about how the HPA rig is going?

G&G G96 Q's

His 700 is great so far, and hes the third owner. We cut the inner and out down a bit. It could use a new striker spring set, but the rifle is fairly old. It shoots good as well. Uses VSR10 bucking, and Inner barrels WITHOUT a conversion kit. You just have to grind two mall flat spots on the right and left sides for set screws to hold onto.

ATM were still getting parts together, and trying to decide if we want a small HPA tank or a CO2 quick change system, which is what were leaning towards. Hoping to fit it into a stock pouch. It will be using two regulators either way, were hoping to order parts soon.
