Hi all,

I definitely want either the LM4 or the LM4C, I actually prefer the shorter C because I want to use it indoors as well for CQB fields, but I've heard from several LM4C owners (some who own both) that I should get the standard length LM4 because it performs better from an accuracy and range standpoint for field games.

Their critique is that you really need the full length of the standard barrel to take full advantage of the gas, and the C falls short (literally and figuratively) and does not perform as well.

Anyone have experience with both the LM4 and LM4C that can give me direct comparative feedback?

The only real difference is the length of the inner barrel, so in other words if you want a shorty LM4 you will lose performance... without any upgrades. It seems that Boobie and some others have been up to some wonderful science (dicking around with parts :P ) and it seems that a shorty barrel can be compensated for by adding a good hop up unit, a good barrel and making sure you have good seals and such in all the right places. Of course those guidelines seem to be pretty universal for airsoft guns in general.

The only differences between the two models is the outer and inner barrel lengths. If you're going to be doing more CQB games then I'd go with the LM4C due to the more compact size and (ever so slightly) lighter weight. Even with a CQB length barrel you'll still be very competitive in field games, especially with a TBB and the EVO2/KSC2 hopup set.
