Let me expand a bit on what I'm looking for, I want to get an AEG for the purpose of upgrading to a DMR. I would prefer something that is super accurate and long range out of the box but that is not usually the case. From my experience (Not that I am all knowing) I have heard a lot of bragging from vfc and kwa, but I am completely open to suggestions.
You already know super accurate and long range (if you are talking about at least over 100m accurate) is not going to happen in out of box AEG.
So, VFC vs. KWA.
KWA is overhyped and only bragged about by people who NEVER open their guns(which means they have zero idea what they are talking about when they say anything about performance/reliability).
VFC is actually decent(not that I would keep any internals).
I already hinted at what you might need for range/accuracy when I mentioned RealSword SVD(prometheus barrel, 6.03mm preferrably since the are steel, R-hop, M-nub or eraser). Only other things you need would be air nozzle that seals perfectly, some pfte tape on cylinder head's o-ring, correct AOE, re-shim(starting with bevel gear for obvious reasons), and get a motor with neodymium magnet(high torque, of course).
Not sure why people have trouble with ARL; I just put a tiny screw driver over it and press that down with a book.
I never said anything on any part of shs's line in particular. So saying I endorsed the shs motor over the jg motor is just putting words into my mouth when in fact I said nothing about it.
I didn't realize anyone cared if their hand is a little warm after a 10 minute engagement.
1. I did not say you endorsed SHS. Actually, you say JG is slow but compared to what? Shs? Anything else with similar neodymium magnet and same tpa will perform similarly; I put in SHS as example.
2. Less warm = less energy wasted = longer battery life...etc. Obvious, right?
I did not put word into your mouth.
ASM isn't a retail website so saying you can find them on there for 20 is a moot point.
No, it is not; except you ignored part that there are people reselling(after buying in bulk) SHS parts, as well as fact that you can find JG blue on sale in probably half of those sales threads.
As for your KWA experience. Every brand has it's lemons. It could also be due to the fact that they were using the matrix magnum motor and the pinion didn't mesh. It could also be because the motor grip they were using had a bad angle. It could ALSO be the fact that the motor adjustment height wasn't properly set.
It could; but then again that shows that matrix magnum motor pinion is stronger than KWA gears(because pinion was okay when I checked).
The fact is that MOST airsoft players do not want to open their guns and upgrade them. If they do a lot of times they can't get it back together.
Not sure how "most airsoft players" matter; because obviously they do not know anything/are too ignorant to learn. Not to mention there are better choices than KWA for something that works well without ever worked on.
I never said AIM was good as a brand.
You suggested that AIM fits into KWA as upgrade part; it is not upgrade if it sucks.
