    For that price he could just get a CYMA cm035 which is much better.

    It would really be helpful if we knew what gun model he wanted.

    I wouldnt say "much better." Between the 2 it would be a matter of personal preference... But definitely 2 great options for aks for the $100 price range.

    The only thing we have to work with is his price range which is under $200...

    Also my king arms ultra grade was my first gun and it was ok but its comparable to a combat machine (i actually like combat machines alot more) which is a decent amount cheaper... (More money for upgrades!!) if an m4 is what he is looking for (more options for externals!!)

    Any CYMA over CM028 is good, but anything over 28 has MUCH better externals and internals. At least my CM035 has steel/potmetal!

    The ICS Sportline is nice =(

    It has proline internals with a downgraded motor.

    The body is decent.

    Buy a metal body for $40-70 more and you're good-to-go.

    See, he has a budget, and tokyo marui is out of his budget. Why don't you go recommend TM somewhere else?

    No. Didn't someone say sometime that they got a DE G36 from buying this rifle? I would get a JG if he was to get a G36 series anything.

    I would reccomend a rear wired m4 from src. Jg, ics and a g and g ( combat machines are brilliant for begginers, they're cheap reliable and upgradeable) these are the best options, they all include batteries and chargers. I didnt mention classic army because i have had bad times with them.

    Like jelly said, go with ICS sportsline. There plastic isn't utter crap as thatoneguy came across. I personally own 2:

    ICS m4 s system

    Yes combat machine is a great gun, but there are many cons to it. Don't get me wrong ICS has cons too but ICS has forward assist and a split gearbox making it easy to get into it and uprgade.

    KWA, G&P, VFC are all great brands but not exactly brands to start out with. Try starting with good brands like Echo1, CYMA, JG, ICS, etc. Try to spend over $150 and you should be fine.

    I actualy have the matrix and jg g36s and yes the 400 fps matrix version does fire .3g bbs very accurately. It's the same price as the jg, but WAY better.

    The Matrix G36 is just a JG G36 rebranded...
