I'm am a beginner at airsoft and I as wondering which would be a better choice of AEG: the TM M16a2 or the CA M15a2. I know one is mostly plastic and the other metal but which has the best quaility?

All things being equal, if the CA had a reputation for being as reliable as the TM, I'd choose the CA. Its all metal, and looks and feels extremely realistic, more so than the TM. It also has a beefier gearbox, a metal nozzle, and shoots in the mid to low 300fps range right out of the box.

The only caveat is CA AEG's are hit or miss. You could buy two identical models and one could run years with no trouble and the other might never run right. Its a gamble, but when you get a good one, man, they sure are nice.

If it were me, I'd buy the CA. But if you DO buy the CA, make sure you have a good gunsmith nearby such as wolv or obsidian. You may need them ;)

Mine has well over 15000rnds and it's still purring :)
But, that's probably only because I replaced all the internals right out of the box. I did, however, notice the newer gears looked pretty nice, and that they put a liberal amount of grease in the 'box this time around (still not enough though). The metal body is a plus, but the metal it's made out of isn't the greatest. I personally don't put much trust into the strength of the body. Also, the one-piece barrel it totes is nice.

You being a beginner = buy a TM. Wait on the CA for once you have more experience.

I heard that CA has corrected some of the issues. Anyone know if this is true or not?

Yes, the CA M15 series is a solid buy these days.

My friend Bansheeman6100 is currently selling his CA M15 due to family issues.

The only thing wrong with it, is it needs a new bucking.

If you are still interested you could send him a PM.

My own person choice though would be the TM M16a2, but that is because I have never had a problem with any of the TM AEG's that I have owned.

Do you know if it is a A2 or A4 rifle version?

I have the A4 Rifle version for sale and Bansheeman has the A4 Carbine version also for sale.
