Rifle recommendations for training simulation...

Recommended Posts

New member looking for recommendations for a rifle used for training simulation... 

My go to rifle is an AK, but I understand the airsoft variants tend to be rather cheaply made. I also have a lot of experience with M4's and AR-15's, so that platform would be a close second choice. However, if anyone has recommendations beyond those two I'm certainly open. While a completely functionally accurate rifle would be ideal, I understand this can really jack up the price and isn't totally necessary to my needs since this will be a supplementary tool and I spend significant time going over manual of arms on the real thing. 

What I'm really looking for is a sturdy and reliable training tool, preferably with a full metal housing and barrel, rails to mount optics and lights, and that can use standard capacity magazines (no 700 rounds without reloads), that won't break that bank. Essentially I'm looking for something around or below $350. I'd like realistic controls, but again not an absolute deal breaker with the exception of being able to fire in semi-auto. And preferably green gas. Realistic recoil isn't a concern. 

Can anyone offer any recommendations?

For an AEG.  You can get an E&L.  

However, don't assume.  Some polymer bodies are better than many pot metal receivers.  This is mainly true for AR's.
 

GHK gas AK would be your best option for a trainer...but its a hair north of your budget and they are off production at the moment.

So...that leaves you with an E&L if you want real gun durability in your price point.

No other AEG can take this abuse....

Mediocre at best.  CYMA does not have tooling for AR's.  It's actually another Factory exporting under the CYMA license.

The CYMA M4's have kissing cousins already on the market like the Cybergun Colt M4...and having to retro-fit them in the past...is strictly middle of the road at best.
