    I have been looking at Spring Type 96 Rifles to upgrade, as I enjoy the role of the sniper. My budget for the base gun is $250-$300, but there is one catch. Most of the rifles I see look like this:


    where the mag goes halfway up the body. I know its just mag placement but I really prefer the look of the mag like this, as it is the correct location:


    But I have been told and read that the TM rifle is very difficult and expensive to upgrade. Is there any rifle out there that is easy to upgrade to the point of an excellent rifle, with the mag in the correct spot?

    EDIT: I would also like it to have a full metal body.
