I thought about what my first AEG should be for months. Like many airsofters, I was on a budget, but still demanded high quality. Enter the Combat Machine. Nearly the same internals as the G&G Prolines and the strongest plastic I have ever seen? I was hooked. Immediately I bought and and waited out the agonizing week for shipping. Needless to say, this gun blew me away. The externals are fantastic, and the internals are decent for the price. I would definitely recommend this over a JG of the same price, especially if you like CQB.
EXTREMELY durable externals
Lightweight (_5 pounds!)
CQB-friendly FPS (Mine was clocked at 348, just below most CQB fps limits)
Low metal content for realism junkies (The only metal parts are trigger, mag, mag release, the rear sight portion of the carry handle, and the outer barrel)
Bad motor. Sluggish trigger response and bad torque.
You may want a higher FPS for field, but ~350 works fine for most.
Battery is low quality, about on par with JG batteries, except this is a 9.6 volt, giving higher ROF.
