Newbie Here - Good Starter Gun?

Recommended Posts

Well, I've narrowed it down now to three finalists:

 

The JG all-metal M4A1

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=5637

 

The G&G CQBR

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=10439

 

The G&G standard M4A1

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=12140

 

All of these do have holes on the top and bottom of the handguards for mounting accessory rails, right? I'd like to add a grip and (possibly) a laser at some point. Which of these three would y'all recommend?

 

See my above reply on my opinion about the JG.

 

The two G&Gs are internally identical. The CQB is mislabeled as the GR16, when it should be the CM16 since it lacks blowback.

 

Go with whatever barrel length you like more between the G&Gs, that's down to your personal preference. The CQB one comes with an offset rail to mount to the top handguard holes, good for your flashlight or laser down the road.

 

Again, if you plan on playing CQB, the JG will shoot too high.

 

My preference is the G&G. Nicer quality plastics and for the most part, better QC. The G&G stock batteries are also not half bad (not near the best either.), I can't stand the stock JG batteries, eventually stops being able to pull the higher powered springs.

Can the offset rail be mounted to the bottom handguard holes? I doubt it can be used to mount a grip (since it's offset and all), but I'm probably gonna put the laser underneath the gun unless it's a PEQ box or something fancy like that (which is doubtful).

Okay, my head is spinning after reading all these initials. Like many others who commented, I'm new to airsoft. I'm getting into this for my son, who's a bit nervous in going out there by himself. He's loaded up and ready to go, but I need a good rifle and maybe sidearm to get started. A couple of questions:

 

1. I see quite a few people selling rifle here. Is it best to get something new or check out the classifieds for a decent rifle? Would I be buying someone else's headache or find an already upgraded gun? I prefer something railed without an A2, so I can put on my own sights. I also like the SOPMOD stock for cheek weld. I bought my son something similar, which is the Classic Army Armalite M15 A4 RIS AEG Gun, I got for 50% off during a sale.

 

2. Are the rifles close to Mil-spec for optics and accessories I have on hand? On my son's rifle, I allowed him to take a red dot off one of my "real" rifles I don't use very often. To make whatever airsoft rifle I get close to what I shoot now, I was going to take my EOTech off my M4A1 SOCOM. Is this a bad move? Should I really only use stuff made for airsoft? I've got tons of gear and figured, use what I've got.

 

 

If there are some that have rifles they want to offload, I'm open to discussion. The purchase after that will be a sidearm. I am most used to an M9.

 

Thanks all.

I'm just getting started with airsoft, and before I purchase my first rifle, I'd like to get some input as to what brand I should get. I'd like to get something based on either the M4/M4A1 carbine, M16A2/A3/A4 assault rifle, or HK 416 assault rifle. Of course, it shouldn't be too expensive, and it should be something decent (I.e. not a piece of crap). Any suggestions? I'm also considering a sidearm - either an M1911, an M9, or a Jericho (mostly because Spike is a badass/good ergonomics). Any suggestions there?

 

Also also, what gear should I get when first starting out (goggles, etc.)? Can y'all recommend any good stuff that won't break the bank and will last a while?

 

 

G&G combat machine or cyma AK RIS
