I'd like to stick at $250, but I'd push to $300 tops. I'm looking for a lightweight AEG, with it's primary focus as CQB but could still be decent for Field games. I really have no experience with the internal workings of an AEG, but would like to learn. So preferably a setup that would be relatively simple to upgrade or repair if need be, but maybe not require anything immediate. Since this can be a rough and sometimes abusive sport, I'm really more concerned about function than beauty marks. ICS has been mentioned in many threads as a brand for someone who doesn't really get in the gear box and had pretty decent internals, but their split gearbox design is often easier to work on and upgrade. During my research I came up with 3 that meet most of the requirements. ICS MP5 line - Most likely poor for field ICS Sig 552 - Not light weight ICS M4 S-System -Proprietary Crane Stock Battery. Probably best for performing dual role Bushmaster M4 Carbon 15 by ICS - Most likely poor for field ICS M4 CXP 15 - Not light or ideal for field A couple of bargain ideas: JG Sig 552 Navy Seal version AEG/JG Matrix PDW JG MC36C I don't expect anyone to look at every single one of these, but if any pop out as a good fit, or some I may have missed, I'm open to suggestions for myself to further research.
