Yep, I would, I owned 4 at various times, and 3 at 1 time not so long back, in various forms, ie. M14 NM, EBR MK14, SOC16. and all because of the reasons I gave above, The Tm weapon is good but it is just to finiky for me, and the fact that 90% of the G&G is V2/3 or AUG sways me towards them. I believe you can still get the Veteran over your way, and this is by far the best start for a DMR. All you need is a TBB, new rubber and nub, stick a scope on it and jobs a good 'unzulu said:I'm just going to chime in here. I'm hoping to start a DMR project soonish, my first time *really* working on an AEG.
By soonish, I probably mean in around a year or so... but you'd recommend a G&G M14 as a good starter rifle, VA?
So you don't think there's much real advantage to getting the prommy barrel? I've heard some good things about madbulls and I'm not opposed to saving some $.vindicareassassin said:If you stick a 509mm Madbull V2 Python, A guarder black and a SCS in it you'll be good to go, no need for opening the gearbox(pretty much all I have in mine...... apart from all the other little tweeks that we can dicuss another time
As the Veteran should come with a solid wood stock the balance and rigidity are second to none, so long as you use normal 9.6v batts, all I would suggest is getting a King Arms scope mount, or any low level mount, as alot are quite high and only really usable with an EBR with an adjustable cheek rest.
As for breakages, I dowt you'll get any major ones unless you happen to get a piston strip :-/ And working on it is 100% easier than any TM or clone M14
Other mods I recommend, take off the fire selector cam to disable full auto, and fit an AB MOSFET and use either a 9.6 batt, or if your into them an 11v Lipo (will make it slightly front heavy). All other stuff is just nice to have and not strictly necessary
Uuum, actualy.... no it doesn't, infact a 509 is about 1/2" short of the flash hider :-/ after all tis what I got in minesilentfury214 said:It should be fine, but the barrel will be a little visible inside the flash hider.
