    Do you think a KA M4(370-400 FPS) and 3-9x40 scope is a good build?

    Well yeah later I might get an higher FPS for it, add a RIS, bipod, take the scope out and add in a red dot and a optic magnifier, and maybe a barrel extention. Other gear is M4 chest rig molle, dozen mags, and other miscellaneous items.

    Of course the essential minor upgrades to increase the FPS as well.

    Here's my main question, what "minor upgrades" do I need and don't need?

    Not really any unless you want to, KA m4s stock are perfectly fine.

    What about if I add 500fps spring? What other upgrades do I need? Metal Bushings? New piston head?

    metal bushings, full steel tooth piston, possibly a new motor, a 500 fps spring will put alot of strain on your motor and gearbox. Not sure how the KA spring guide is, but that may need to be replaced. Is there a reason to go to 500 fps? i would say keep it closer to a 430-450 range. but if you feel like going that high, be prepared for parts to wear alot faster.

    No there wasn't a reason, I just estimated. I will consider your idea. How much will it costs for upgrades?

    Bro, all I can say right now is go read some build threads and come back here. Do you know what AOE. is? What about the flat hop mod? What about an r hop? Have you ever built an AEG before? If not, a DMR build is not the ideal first build.

    Then post up a tentative list and we can critique it and tell you what won't work. What is your budget? What are your goals?
