GBB Version is the best.
The AEP works on batteries, which is not that great considering the spring has to be downsized to fit in the gun, which results in a lower FPS compared to the GBB and not a very high rate of fire. The GBB version can be upgraded with metal parts so that it will last longer and run on Green Gas, which is much cheaper than HFC134a, which is the standard gas for Tokyo Marui pistols. AEPs CANNOT BE UPGRADED.
AEPs work great in the cold, because GBBs require at least 68+ degrees F to function to its maximum capability. However, with AEPs made mostly of plastic, it's quite obvious which ones are easier to upgrade. The best CQB-ready pistols are the ones that can fire in full auto, which in this case, is the TM G18C GBB.
