This is my first MMO so I'm confused about all the details revolving around weapons value in use and how the lvl numbers work.

An example in my inventory:

I've got a (blue) 267 level VBI SS-2 Ranger with 165K/790K achieved and no mods.

I've also got a (white) 496 level version of the same VBI SS-2 Ranger with 0K/824K achieved and no mods.

They appear to be essentially the same weapon, only diff is the 267 has a 2.7second reload Vs a 3 second reload for the 496.

1.) Do I gain or lose anything by salvaging the 267 and using the 496 instead, or will it just not matter and I should scrap the 496?

2.) If I finish leveling with the 267, can I then level the 496 as well, and will it do anything for my EXP? Or does the 496=the 267 on the EXP ladder?

Thanks for any help.

You are best off finishing the EXP ladder for the skill levels on weapons, also when you finish levelling the weapon it will get a boost. But in this games most guns are essentially very similar with minor differences. Also because of the weapons being highly identical the small little differences can make a big difference in my opinion.
