Which is the Best Gel Blaster for 2019?
So enough of the background, which is the best gel blaster of them all? Well there are a few solid contenders!
M4A1 Gel Blaster
The Jinming M4A1 Gen9 is currently an extremely popular choice because it’s a newer model of the already popular gen 8 M4A1 blaster.
The biggest difference between the two models is that the gen 9 features a sturdier all nylon frame compared to the ABS (plastic) build of the gen 8.
However the downside is that there are currently less upgrades and accessories available for it because it just hasn’t been around for as long. That will obviously improve as time goes on.
Some people prefer the gen 8 model because they can really go crazy with all kinds of upgrades and customise the look and performance of the blaster immediately.
But keep in mind, there are plenty of other popular gel blasters than just this model!
ACR (HEE) Gel Blaster
The ACR (HEE) model has proven to be an extremely popular choice because of its compact design and the ability to attach a variety of accessories right out of the box using the built in rails which come standard.
KRISS Vector v2 Gel Blaster
The KRISS VECTOR v2 gel blaster has also proven to be an extremely popular choice because it has such a unique appearance and can be highly customised for different styles of play.
Fold the stock in for close quarters battles and room clearances, or attach the suppressor for a little more range and accuracy.
