Hi, first of all, new here and to the sport in a serious fashion. Had a couple of small skirmishes back in junior high and really enjoyed it, so now I'm in with a group of people who do this on a regular basis and I'd like to have some proper equipment finally but as this is my first real expense in this area I don't want to break the bank, I want to ease into these higher priced guns. Now down to specs, in order of importance. Needs to be M4 mag compatible, with perhaps one exception I can think of. Solid factory internals but upgrade friendly so I can keep future costs down, so pretty much TM spec. although exceptions might possibly be made. Stock around 350 fps, I want something CQB legal but that is going to somewhat capable on the field until I can get dedicated primaries. (quick change spring would also be acceptable since it would allow me to make the necessary field changes for both arenas) Needs to have picatinny rail for mounting optics would like to have RIS for foregrip, M203, MBUS style sights and such, but is not a necessity. External build quality and upgradeability is much more important that external material. I'm careful with my current LPEG equipment so I'm sure some sturdy ABS would be fine, but I'd prefer Nylon Fiber Polymer, henceforth NFP for ease of reference, or metal externals. Battery space is a concern, I wouldn't mind running a fixed stock at all, but if I could find a decent adjustable I'd prefer that. (something similarly styled to a magpul UBR minus the price tag) I tend to like M4's and Bullpup arrangements so any of those are acceptable Non-blow back is prefered, I don't want to have to deal with a BB mechanism or it wearing down other parts needlessly. Now those are my requests for recommendations, now for the hard part. Seeing as I'm looking at upgrading the gun going into the future, likely to the point that I legitimately replace nearly every aspect of the thing to fit my play style as a grow and adapt, and seeing that it's my first serious gun... My budget I'm willing to spend $200-ish. perhaps another $50 IF it's just something I absolutely NEED once I look at it. But I would prefer to spend less in case I've over-anticipated my seriousness about the sport. and I don't mind getting a cheaper gun with a crap motor or hop up bucking if it has a good gearbox as those are cheap and easy to upgrade. So far I've seriously considered, again in order of seriousness: http://www.evike.com/products/45417/ http://www.evike.com/products/38178/ http://www.evike.com/products/39919/ http://www.evike.com/products/37757/ http://www.evike.com/products/41551/ http://www.evike.com/products/47647/ These are only what I've considered but it tends to be what I like. I'm aware each have their quirks, Like KWA's proprietary hop chamber and the motors on the Combat Machine series tend to be crap. The P90 ISN'T M4 mag compatible which is a huge issue, but there are exceptions and one of our other guys already has a P90 he runs and I love it so exception made. The Tavor is hard to find parts for from what I hear, and the UAR V.1 had a couple of glaring problems with mag compatibility and feeding issues, which they claimed to have fixed with the V.2 but it's APS so who knows. So as much as I like the bullpups I'm leaning towards the M4 platforms at the moment, mainly the CM18 and the CQR. My team runs midcaps almost exclusively, mostly MAG brand, so compatibility is a concern. If anyone has an opinion on the rifles listed or an acceptable alternate please feel free to let me know. I'm looking for something versatile, that I can be patient and somewhat precise with or provide some limited light fire support in a pinch with, and again, needs to be CQB capable with some field applications, so around 350 fps or easy swap spring.
