    I have a King Arms M4 and I'm looking to mod my M4(externally) Currently all I have on it is a set of MBUS. But I'm looking to get a new Handguard. Preferably one that can be removed easily so I can take my battery in and out and on this Handguard I would like for it to have upper and lower rails. On to optics, I want some thing like an Aimpoint replica. And for the stock I want some thing that is light but durable.

    Any suggestions. Total price nothing over $200

    I would rewire to the rear and either use a crane stock or a buffer tube battery, then get a DD or Noveske RIS and a G&P aimpoint or an ACM one if you want to save money. A buffer tube battery would be a lot cheaper then a crane stock, I fit a 2000 mah 7.4V lipo into my G&P buffer tube, so you should be able to comfortably fit a 1200 mah.

    If you really want to stick to front wiring a PEQ box is your best bet.

    Magpul MOE Handguards are easy to get off if that's what your looking for.
    Also, try looking into the Madbull line of Daniel Defense rails.

    But the problem with Daniel defense is that it's expensive

    I really wouldn't recommend keeping the wiring up front. It makes the gun ugly and front-heavy. Also, instead of an 8.4, go with a 7.4v LiPo, but if you're sticking to the front-wired plan, a 7.4v could easily fit into a PEQ-15. As for the other stuff, I personally don't like the LaRue RIS, I'd recommend something like this (http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=29_32_140&products_id=1188) instead, but that's personal, if you like the LaRue then go for it. As for optics, something like this (http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=26_45&products_id=525) should do fine, useable and looks the part. And the stock could be one of these (http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=29_33&products_id=1735), basic, durable and looks good.

    So, this is what I'm probably gonna get. Will this fit on a M4 Carbine? http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=4464

    I don't know how to rewire to the stock so I'm gonna get this http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=4448

    I already have MBUS sights. Is this a good choice for an optic. Any suggestions on anything else? http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=4448

    Figured I might as well put a grip of front http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=2182{3}42

    And this stock http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=574
