Hello,

Fairly new to airsoft...long time paintballer 20+ years.
Currently have a 556 and enjoy it. Looking to get a DMR thinking maybe the M14 platform as well like the m14 -EMR look.
-the SR25 and from my first post the FN FAL are all nice
Added..i like the Sr 25 as well

any thoughts?

thanks

To Worstinfinland...... that'll be cuz its a TM derivative, G&G V7 M14 gearboxs are easier than a V2 or 3 boxs to work on, set up, adjust, modify..... fact!!


To the OP I have had both my G&G M14 version 1s for nye on 10 years now, both work without flaw, everytime I use them, and If you have read the sticky at the top of the title page you'll know mine are VERY heavily modified with, normaly, some untried or tested mod I've been working on :nuts:

The TM fanboys will tell you the hop is more stable etc etc and this is all pish, the G&G hop is just as stable and with some mods can be made more stable than the TM hop could dream of being :shot:

The EMR variant is VERY front heavy though, and just heavy in general (when I had finished mine it weighed in at 17.5 pounds all in, less mag..... thats heavier than the real thing :doh:)


The SR25 is ''OK'', Your really no better off than someone else running an M16 DMR except the SR is heavier and on some versions you can have a longer stroke piston/cylinder, which, despite what others my think, isn't the boon that it should be unless your either running a super long barrel (stupid idea :lmao:at anyone who does and thinks their gun performs any better) or a super large bore barrel (better idea but only really for 6.2mm and up)...... again there is a small section on what I did to mine in the sticky (starts at post 6 if memory serves :yup:)


My mate had both long and short FNs, they were OK aswell , but another mate had a sniper variant SLR and that was not so good :shrug:

I used to have an Echo1 EBR. Two things. First, Idk about the G&G but this one was a royal pain in my #$%$$#%#%#>: Second, It really was front heavy. Aside from being really unbalanced, the gun weighed like 14 pounds. I wouldn't recommend it.

The SR-25 is gorgeous. Is the G&G the one with the longer hop-up, that uses the standard V2 GB?

I have a TM M14 and love it. Only upgrades have been to the wiring and hopup rubber! G&G make a rock solid version as well.

I like the look of the EBR but definately like the feel of the "wood" stock better! Weight is balanced. (I've tried the EBR). If you plan on using it with a bipod all the time then that shouldn't matter.

I love the accuracy on Semi, but also the ability to lay down suppression on full auto.

Last thing I need to do is build a check rest riser! My eye line is still too low for my scope!

Vinny and others thanks for the info.
Still haven't decided 100% but I am thinking the M14 will be my choice. Now TM or G&G also there a few used ones here in Canada for about $350 with upgrades.
G&G I believe uses the ver 7 gearbox what version is TM using?
thanks

I must say benefits do come from long barrels, but they are not always the same as with rifles.

Anyway, I might suggest considering against the V2 for a DMR of a strong power. The M4 hopup is unstable and surely lowers accuracy, and the gearbox has weaknesses at the front of it and the motor stability seems to be unreliable.

I hear the M14 has suitable qualities for a high-powered AEG.

Im pretty happy with my G&G SR-25, I can hit my mailbox 9/10 at 110 yards completely stock with washed G&G .28s if I do my part. Its stripped down and awaiting the rest of my upgrade parts right at the moment though. MY only complaint is finding an O-ring nozzle and aftermarket cylinder head for it.

Depends on which one, the G&G has a longer air nozzle, cylinder head, and hop unit is all, the rest are all M4 V2 parts. Most of the other SR-25s use an elongated V2 gearbox meaning longer piston, gearbox, and cylinder. All of them need an SR-25 mag of somekind, best check what they are compatable with as I dont know which ones can fit which guns.

Its hard as crap to find aftermarket Cylinder heads, and nozzles for the G&G, checked with Ben Ferris from Clandestine Airsoft, VS studios was the company that made nozzles and he cant get a hold of them and thinks the company may be no more. Super Shooter makes the cylinderhead but no one has them in stock that I can find

But I got the G&G because it is very userfriendly to fieldstrip. It doesnt doesnt dismantle like a regular AR, you just pop the hinge pin in front and the upper and lower reciever slide apart. However dont try to force the pin all the way out, its not ment to. As for weight, I have a 4-16x50mm scope sitting as far back as I can and still adjust for good eye relief. Its heavy but balances and swings like a champ,

Easier on a plastic stock...... Like this......





I dont like the adjustable ones, too many things to get snagged on gear etc :shrug:
Very nice. I just don't want to make mine permanent. I have a strap on cheek pad. I'm planning on making something similar to your third picture but removable (using pins) and putting the wrap around cheek rest over it. That way it is removable. :tup:

The hopup on the sr-25 is the same as the m4 AFAIK.
The only exception is the G&G which uses a standard v2 gearbox with a elongated hop up unit. You can still purchase a replacement if that breaks though. Although as long as you dont slam the piss out of the mags every time you put one into the gun the hop up should never wear out (excluding the bucking.)

question to the M14 guys.
in regards to G&G
i am in canada and reading from a retailer here, it lists the M14 MAX version at 485 FPS for $495 CDN or approx $480 US. its a plastic stock not a GR14 Veteran AEG Airsoft Gun ( M120 Spring ) with wood stock.

what I am wondering is how many different versions are there?
i see the basic black or fake wood plastic at approx 330fps.
the veteran - wood stock at 410 FPS
and the CDN Max - plastic stock at 485 FPS.

The hopup for the G&G SR-25 is just fine, I havnt had any wierd stuff as far as hooking to the left or right, and there doesnt appear to be any play between the hoparm and the sides of the hop unit itself, so shims may be unecissary and or impossible to utilize.

Only thing ive noticed with mine is what would be the gas block on a real AR/SR (Were the front sight mounts) is slightly of axis, skewed to the right in relation to the recievers top rail. as I dont plan on using irons this is cosmetic and unless your actually looking wont notice.

Goldentrigun paraphrased what I was trying to get out much more eliquently.
