G&G AK-47 VS Aftermath Kraken

Ok, So I am going to be buying an AK-47 from Cabela's. So far, I am going to go with the G&G AK-47 (https://www.cabelas.ca/index.cfm?pag...=1387&ID=22151) but I have heard many good things about the Aftermath Kraken (https://www.cabelas.ca/index.cfm?pag...2=1387&ID=3475). Was my original hunch correct to go with the G&G or should I go with the Kraken? I have heard a good many things about the Kraken but I trust the brand name of G&G.

Any thoughts?

From my experience with the Kraken, its a solid AEG. The limited experience I have had from the G&G shows me that it too, is a good AEG. There is the obvious price difference...
Most people will tell you too wait out until your of age to buy an airsoft gun.
I know this didn't help too much, but I would go with the Kraken personally.

Neither;

The G&G has some comparability issues with most TM based external upgrades, and the Kraken is meh.

Save up longer, buy a RealSword.

OK Amos, I respect your opinion, But I am going to be ordering one from Cabela's and I need to know which one. I have been doing my research into both of them. The Kraken is in high regard by many people where as the G&G does not seem to have very high quality when it comes to the screws into the stock especially.(as you pointed out in a thread with many pictures and stickies in the pictures (i cant remember the post)). And just for the record, I am 18. I'm not going through Cabela's just to bypass the AV thing or anything like that.

I agree GET RS or get SRC gen 3 AK (its TM compatible) if you dont have enough cash, plus new SRC's equipped w/ great internals.

Enjoy the waste of money, then.

Fifteen minutes of your time for meeting up with an AV representative, a weeks wait time and access to the classifieds is worth so much more than that shit.

you can get G&G or SRC from www.007airsoft.com, ken owns that store and it resides in Canada.

Ok, Fine. But all of the Toronto AVers AV in Toronto, and being 18, I don't exactly have a car to drive all the way out into Toronto (I live in Georgetown). Now can you see why it is a bit hard for me?

No its not hard, your just lazy and not dedicated enough to get aved. Go bus it you fool, you live near a city with way too many avers.... If you think it's too far to go to Toronto, how are you going to go to public games?

I live in Dundas, it's hard enough for me to get to games without a car.

Also if you buy a Aftermath Kraken, don't invest too much into it. Once it breaks buy a real sword like they say.

I'd vote G&G if you are on a budget. But, the real sword is much more epic in terms of quality and realism. Decisions, decisions.

Every time I think I find something nice about these forums it just gets violently torn away by the vast armies of douche bags that lurk this site, praying on people trying to ask an honest question about something. Please, for the love of all that is good, remember you are talking about toy guns. What you guys are doing is saying "My Spiderman toy won't break so easy, so go to the big Toys-R-Us in Toronto and buy an expensive Spiderman toy like me. Anything else is garbage and we will repeatedly flame you until you buy an expensive action figure."

Then meet up with a verifier, Don't bother wasting your money on a Kraken or a G&G. Delayed gratification pays off for sure.

Also, you don't have to be AV'd on ASC to order a realsword, check out One World Airsoft.

Oh, Im not going to be adding a metal body to it. I just want a decent quality gun that I can use to play with my friends. There are about 12 of us. I'm not going to any big games, dressing up in full tactical gear, or completely upgrading my gun and sinking a ton of money into it. I play 4 or 5 times a month for an hour or two. Not a full 2 days non-stop tacticool serious bizznuss Canada airsoft games that aparently go on. If all the ASC trolls play in one place together, it must suck.

Fine pay more then what the Kraken is worth on some crappy retailer . Unless you are playing games, your Spiderman toy won't break but if you do expect breakage
