Te problem with CA now is that they did a price cut. I bought the AUG A1 b4 the price cut, the gears are reliable, the problem is that, the motor went... the fuse is fine, it didnt do wat it was suppost to, but w/e I got my frnd to fix the motor, but I would go with some thing becides a CA now. All you pay for now is the name. I bought an Echo and I prefer it to my TM and CA it was also only $202.50 with shiping. But the points is that CA should not have cut the quality of their internas so they could save some money, they could have just taken the metel off the guns and made it plastic even beter just left the guns alone. Over all, Im happy with it, but I wish Ecoh had their AUG when I bought my AUG.
