    You really don't want a KWA. What's your budget and preferred model? If its the $150-$200 range go with a G&G Combat Machine. If its $250-$300 go with a VFC E series.(both are M4s)

    I disagree. I'd get an ICS Sportline for $150-$200.

    There lies the problem. It's a sportline, meaning that it's plastic while the CM is a nicer ABS.

    Actually, the ICS M4 Sportline has some nice metal on it, and the plastic is much better than my CM RK-47.

    Remember you will need to include the following;
    1. Smart charger $15ish
    2. 9.6 $15ish
    3. High grade .20 BBs $10ish

    Do you actually own one? They are made out of plastic. If you want to get an ICS, get a full metal one. Much nicer.

    My friend has the ICS M4 S-System and the ICS M4 Basic. They are metal, not completely metal, but there are metal parts to it.

    I like JG personally. You should really follow that format though it would be extremely helpful.

    Obviously, but if you ask me, if he doesn't care about externals, ICS is the way t o go, I just don't like CMs in general, and JG would should too hot if he prefers their M4s

    He fixed the format a while back

    What's wrong with a CM for a beginner gun?

    The CMs I've handled tend to have had higher failure rates, plus you can't go wrong with JG gears and motors. I'm still going with an ICS M4 Sportline right here, you can get them for under $200.

    Pshaw. Any gun you buy in this range will have a high failure rate. My CM had a problem after around 20K rounds through it.

    If the OP likes AKs, CYMA is the way to go!

    Pros
    -$110, free shipping and 10% coupon code (under $100 shipped!!!)
    -high fps
    -metal gear box
    -easy to disassemle/assemble
    -ready to go OTB (includes battery and charger)
    -impressive accuracy at about 100 feet (with .25s)

    Cons
    -not so great plastic receiver
    -selector screw sucks and loosens easily even with loctite
    -jams occasionally on semi (dont they all)
    -stock is kind of a joke... Mine broke after fielding it for the first time (i kind of like it without the stock... For cqb anyway)

    This is my backup/loaner gun and its a damn good gun for the price if you can live with the cons. Im a fan because of the consistent fps and good accuracy (good internals!) but the externals scream $100 gun lol.

    Just get a CM. Everyone on this forum is a CM hater. They're really great, perfect upgrade platforms.
