V2 gearbox vs V3 gearbox

If it has a battery and a gearbox, this is where it belongs

V2 gearbox vs V3 gearbox

Postby defgun3003 on Tue Jan 04, 2011 3:14 pm

I keep hearing that the V3 gearbox is an indestructible AK-esque behemoth compared to a V2.

I would simply like to know if there is any legitimacy in the claim, and if there is, is it enough of a difference to warrant a deviation from my plan to get an ICS armalite (thus substituting a JG AUG A3, SRC G36C or CM040).

Yes, Version 3's are the strongest type GBs out there. V2's are notorious for building up a lot of pressure under the air nozzle which ends up cracking the gearbox and ruining most of the internals. The also have motor problems because they have no motor-cages and the motor is freely hanging...

Screw that, I'm getting a V3.

JG AUG A3 (Full Metal) or SRC G36

I'd go for the AUG, JG really hit the ball out of the park with the AUG series, I've heard they are the best gun JG's ever made. It also has an M16 length barrel but is the same size as the G36. The only reason I'd go for the G36 was if I had an M4/16 previously and I had a lot of surplus mags. But, because of my AK fetish, I say go for the '040. Some guy on Arnie's makes AK-to-M4 magazine wells if you've had an armalite previously. Basically, I'd say just go for the the one you like more externally. The '040 or the AUG A1...

I've heard the A3 is better than the A1 and A2 for some reason.

Isn't the A3 only on E-Fail though? Do they still have the credit card theft going on?

I've only had problems with their lack of real-time inventory.

AUG A3: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.p ... ts_id=4030

My only problem is that i might not be able to drop the fps to field-legal.

So I may get the civvie. If anyone knows of a quantifiable difference between the two, inform me. Rail space does not concern me, performance does.
