Depends if they've updated really, I saw inside some of the original APS gearboxes and they were seriously shocking, shaky, loose externals as well. If your research clearly and solidly indicates that they now have quality internals with good evidence to back this up (as opposed to what you usually get on forums where some lad buys a gun, uses it for 1 game then proclaims it to be amazing) then go ahead. Personally though I'd spend the £200 on a G&G.
and i was just curious that you made aps sound really bad, and i have been doing my research and yes its not the best gun or the worst, but i take it that a personal encounter had caused you to say that.??? please reply thanks for you time bye
