So before I dwell into what I am looking for I feel that it is necessary for me to give a little background info on my self.
My experience with airsoft began in high school when me and my buddies would run around with AEGs, springers and gas pistols in the woods. It was all in good fun and nothing too serious. Fast forward to 2013, graduation roles around and the hobby died off when we started college or went into the military.
I'm a real steel gun guy at heart. Always have been. I work in a manufacturing facility full time, with former and active LEOs, SWAT, military and contractor personnel. I also manage OEM inventory, build high AR-15 rifles and pistols, process distribution orders and shipping said orders for rifles. Needless to say, my time spent on an actual range isn't that much. However, in oder to supplement my actual training I am prepared to get invested in airsoft. One of the guys I work with attends mil sim events to supplement his SWAT training and to stay one step ahead of the game. He's invited me to attend events with him in order to supplement my training and increase my proficiency.
Now with all that being said, I can finally get into why I joined this forum. I am looking into getting either an AEG or a GBB that will allow me to shoot it as fast on semi automatic as I possibly can that is comparable to my real steel ar-15s. I know it won't be 100% as fast, but as long as it is close that is fine. I run Geissele SSA and ALG triggers in my real guns, so I am used to speed. Also, if it comes down to having to doing upgrades to a gun, I am perfectly fine with that. I have a whole work shop at my disposal.
With all that being said, I am hoping to hear feedback from some of the members here who have similar experiences as me or have tried something like this before.
