    Hi:) I wanted to buy an aeg. My budget is about $150-220usd. As i am a beginner, I don't really know how to choose a good gun. What criteria should I look at when I choose a gun? I know that Hong Kong guns are good and I targeted at Kings Arms at first, but later, my friend told me that Kings Arms cheapest version of m4 is not very good. (It is about $175-$200usd) After that, I also targeted at A.P.S., it is a Hong Kong brand. But just now, I realized that it is made in China, but managed by Hong Kong people. Is it reliable? And is there any defects on the gun? Cuz I want my gun in good condition. Please give me some suggestions and advises. Thanks:)

    The G&G combat machine range is in your prie range and they are good M4's . I dont know that many problems with them , im sure someone else can add to the G&G idea

    well a combat machine is a good starter m4 and you can still upgrade it a bit if you like.

    ...You shouldn't really post if you can't defend your argument, a lot of people out there would say that combat machines suck.

    unfortunatley you can never go by reviews on the internet so every person is different , the only way to know is to really see the gun in question being used in a skirmish , but fair point all the same mate

    Thanks shifty, my apologies for entertaining him.

    OP: That long story short, King Arms is much better than CMs, not saying CMs are horrid or anything but if you have the cash then definitely go for King Arms.

    Thanks for all your replys, I will consider all your advises:)

    In what way G&G combat machine is good? And is it made in Taiwan or having good condition?

    Ermmm, is Kings Arms really that good? If yes, I will first consider Kings Arms colt m4a1.

    If you are the last person to post in the thread and then want to post again, just edit your last post. Do not multi-post or bump the thread in less than 72 hours without response.

    I don't know if CM is changing the GB or if ASGI is just throwing some parts in. The gearbox is getting some improvements such as steel bushings, reinforced gearset, rumored to have improved wiring. Since these haven't been released to the public as far as I know I can't add more then that.

    The biggest problem I had with CM was horrid motors, wiring, and those nasty brass bushings. Guess time will tell if the new CMs are that good.

    I don't trust KAs after I had their FAL fall apart in my hands.
