which one? Which gun will have more reliability (better internals, durability)?
The G3 has much higher FPS, and probably better range, and good accuracy
The R85 has a metal body, is more compact, and has great accuracy
Im guessing the ARMY will have better internals, but i dont know if its internals are so much better than the G3 that i should sacrifice having more range and fps.

The ARMY L85, the JG G3 looks absolutely horrible. And since the body is plastic, the gun will sag because of its length, the tm does.

Wrong. Have you handled one? It's much sturdier than the TM.
Both will be fine, just get the one you like the looks of more.

ok, i shot the army today and i didnt like it all
fps was low, about 320, range test showed that the maximum effective range was about 100 ft. (ugh). Past that bb's would scatter everywhere
The G3 was alot better, great range and accuracy, but im skeptical about getting it because since it is about the length of an M16, it most likely will develop barrel wobble........

Something was wrong with that one then, because I regularly see the Army shoot 135-140' accurately.

No, because my local store doesn't carry many low end guns. I go by what I have heard about the guns that are being discussed.

I have heard excellent things about the L85 Army. there are a few good reviews on youtube if u want to check that out. I would personally go with the L85 because it is stamped metal and I have heard I think from Booligan that it is one of the best L85's out there. Also, FPS and range should be 330-350 FPS and a range of at least 130.

Choose the one you think looks better, I have heard posotive comments on both the R85 and the G3.
