Hello I am new to airsoft and I was just given a Tokyo Marui M4A1 New in the box but it is several years old. It is not a next gen gun. My friend had it up in a closet. It was left by her ex husband. 

 

Here is my questions?

 

IIt looks perfect. Is it still good enough to use with todays guns?

What battery does it use?

And can it use any of the new  m4 mags that are out today?

 

Sorry for the noob questions.

Their performance out of the box is respectable. They will keep up with other stock guns. They are also upgradable. 

There are a multitude of batteries that you can use. In stock form, its best to use 7.4v lipos or 8.4v and 9.6v NIMH. Lipos are newer technology and pack more power into a smaller package than Nimh. Im assuming the gun is wired to the front handguard, so this would be a good lipo to start with. It would also perform well in a lightly upgraded gun so you have some growth room. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-1800mah-2s-25-50c-lipo-airsoft-pack-1.html

Generally speaking, yes, you can use any of the M4 mags out there today. However there is a caveat. Airsoft companys produce parts to their own spec, but it is loosely based on Tokyo Marui specs, so not every brand of mag fits every other brand of gun. Tokyo Marui mags should work without a problem. Classic Army, G&G, and G&P high capacity mags should all also be good. If you are interested in mid capacity mags (100rds or so, does not have the winding wheel on the bottom), MAG 100rd and King Arms 120rd are both great places to start.
