Technical questions as far as internals on 4 M16A3/A4 that I can afford

Recommended Posts

Hi. Now I am an AK guy, but I decided to get an M16. There are several I am looking at. Considering I am pretty tall guy, I want a full size M16. Here are some I am looking at:
a) DBOY DMR. It is full metal, comes with a PEQ box (why would I need one?). Has full rails on the foregrip. Not bad.
http://www.evike.com/products/31317/
b) A&K M16A3 metal version also known as M16A4
http://www.hitguns.c...p/ak-m16-a3.htm
c) DBOY SPR http://www.evike.com/products/28681/ rumor has it that it is the same as DBOY DMR but with different front end.
e) CYMA CM009

Since the only thing I carry on my rifle is POSSIBLY a red dot, I really do not need all those rails. However, I do wanna make sure I get the rifle with THE BEST externals and internals out of these. I can't drop 300 bucks on KWA. I can't drop 250 on G&P, so these are my only choices. Any suggestions?

At your price range it will be hard to find a gun with really nice externals. Almost everything, if not everything, under $200 will have either a plastic or pot metal body, neither of which can be called "the best."

 

The Dboys M16 "DMR" has a PEQ box to hold the battery. Yeah, it has a full stock, but some genius decided to give it a front wired design. You can always re-wire it to the stock if you want.

 

Of the four guns listed, I would go with the CYMA CM009. My personal rifle is a CYMA CM016 (M4 S-system) and it's served me for two years with no problems so far.

 

Mind if I ask why you want an M16? The CYMA AK's are by far the best guns to get for your price range considering their external quality, and the full length AKM/AK74 style would fit your stature well.

Let me put it simply, you won't get nice anything in that price range really. All of those AEG's will work just fine and will even be quite reliable on a mild battery, but their performance and external feel will probably leave quite a bit to be desired. I might actually consider getting a CYMA or Dboys M16, but I'd completely rebuild the internals from scratch to meet my standard and needs and would also try and refine the externals somewhat. If you're somewhat proficient with internal upgrades you'd actually be better off getting a cheaper AEG and spend the remainder of your budget on internal upgrades.

I asked the same questions of "technicians" that "work" in hitguns.com. They have all the models in stock. The answers they gave me are retarded. According to them I should get... a JG M16A1 Vietnam style. According to them the A&K M16 which shoots 330 fps <AT> 600 RPM has "THE STRONGEST MOTOR". According to them "All of those AEGs have 6mm bushings." I just happened to come to an airsoft site in czech republic which actually gives me the complete data on CYMA and DBOY. Needless to say it is TOTALLY different then what the retards at hitguns gave me. STAY AWAY FROM HITGUNS. They have NO idea what they are talking about

Techs at "shops" are never good. Why do you think they work there?

 

Because they are not good enough to be independent and need the experience from the store to learn...

 

Never assume the staff of any store is any good in this niche industry...

That reminds of the time when I sent e-mails to the local shop with a fake name as I was curious about their knowledge level. I asked them if they could upgrade my AK to shoot 400fps at 30rps, an easy build for an experienced tech. Their reply: "That might be difficult, after all, the world record for rate of fire was set with a moped battery at 32rps." That gave me a good idea of how out of date their knowledge was... The other local shop I sent the same mail to at least gave a reasonable reply, that it would probably be cheaper to just buy an AEG with a higher ROF out of the box.
