Looking for some advice on my first AEG purchase I am looking to stay around 250 and under and am partial to a m4/m16 style but am really open to anything

thanks!

Seeing as how you are a beginner I wouldn't recommend spending a ton of money right off the bat because you don't know if you'll like it or not. But, if you really want to get into airsoft you want a good platform to build up and upgrade. A G&P M4 is one of the best base platforms for M4's and the price tag is about 250. The externals are extremely nice. The internals are above average but it is completely compatible with all V2 TM parts so upgrading will be easy. Just my 0.02$.

Try looking into JG. They're great beginner guns. They make some good m4's, both metal and plastic. G&G combat machines are also pretty cool. There is also a new brand of guns called Lancer Tactical whose goal is to make a good beginner gun and give you everything you need to start playing (battery, charger, the simple things which more expensive brands don't give you). Apparently, they've been getting some good attention.

Lol. I'll probably get a P90 sometime. Shame they aren't DSG friendly. JG/KS p90s are some of the best of starter guns.

Have you thought about maybe some sort of G36? JG makes a real good one. They come in all three variants too,(c, k, e), with the carry handle scope or without.

JG's G36 line starts at about $130 and goes up from there. if you do that you'll have plenty left for gear and stuff later on.

the only reason I am set on a m4 style is because I regularly shoot and train with 3 different types of ar 15s so I figured the transition tactics wise would be the easiest. Thanks for all the input it really is pointing me in the right direction as far as brands and different styles of guns

thanks again

On the subject of ak's, the vfc ones and their clones are incredibly easy to take apart. It almost rivals a p90.

 

G&P has some really nice externals, but internally they have a few issues. One of them being the gear shafts like to break. But if you don't mind replacing them, G&P is a solid choice.

+1 for the G36

 

I find it a lot easier to work with than M4s. Also less screws to deal with when trying to get to the gearbox.

 

It's light yet solid, a little more different, and supposedly their hop system is built better than the m4 hop system.

 

If you wanna start out I'd go with the G36K variant. You get a fairly more consistent distance with the slightly longer barrel.

I can easily recommend any of these ICS guns. They are M4 style guns with they easy access split gearbox. The first 2 are sportlines, external quality is nice, and IMO better internals than my sons G&G CM. Good sturdy reinforced ABS polymer and sexy! The second two are full metal, with the Turbo 3000 motor and are very nice mid level M4s. I love how easy it is to replace anything in the upper gearbox.

If you still have yet to buy one I would recommend any JG G36. If you get the K or G36 (Note they are not called E's) make sure to buy a new inner barrel. The old inner barrel is FAR too small and well, it causes gun breaking problems. However fitting on the new barrel only takes 20 minutes if that and really makes you gun perform well. With the left over money, buy a 9.6 Nunchuck, Smart Charger, BB's and maybe a mag or red dot.

 

G36:

G36k:

G36c:

Extras:

http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?products_id=24661 (Smart Charger)

http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?cPat...oducts_id=24130 (BB's)

 

With the most expensive set up (RAS, Inner Barrel, Battery, Charger, BB's) you would be at $271, but if you order now Evike has a 20% off if you use "VGHS" which would be $50ish off your order.

 

Some people may say Evike sucks, but they are the only place I order from (If I can) and they have yet to mess up my order and when they sent me a Lemon UMP, and my Lemon JG, I sent them both back and had them within 2 days. (I live pretty close to them) However they are a great company and I suggest them over any other company.
