so, I found a fairly cheap AEG thats cqb which is good for the field near me. I was wondering tho, is itas good as it looks? ill give a link to the one I want here: http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/6679-de-m4-cqb-ris-airsoft-aeg-rifle-w-flashlight_red-dot-scope.aspx I also found another AEG thats slightly more expensive, but it looks pretty good, so heres the link to that one too: http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/1316-DE-M82P-DE-Model-552-TacSpec-Electric-AEG-Rifle.aspx
look for something CQB. im fairly new also, and im having a hard time finding a good one to start with. But I imagine that if he's small, then he'll want a small gun, so CQB is probably what he should get. edit: I talked to one of my friends whos an airsoft veteran, and he said CQB would be the best one for an 11 year old getting into airsoft.
