    I honestly am more towards sniper. I like the feild a little more. Plus we okay alot at my deer lease and its mostly open feilds/ brush.

    What about handguard style? Here are some examples but there are many others. Do some research to find out what you like.

    Yeah. I like that one too. But question. Should I stick with the crane-stock or go with the traditional m16 stock.

    Completely up to you. Full stock generally has more battery capacity while crane stock is more adjustable and in my opinion, looks better aswell.

    Ok what do you play more? What's the fps limit? What are the ranges you would be shooting at? What is your budget?

    Also do you want only externals upgrades or internal as well? if internal, do you want like barrel/hop-up unit? Or gearbox also?

    I'm just doin barrel/stock/sight modifications man. Chilllll......... k.. Ya. I honestly like the feeling of the crane-stock better anyways. I'm definitely getting some sort of lonrange sight. We do teams of 2 usually. I'm cover while my friend is sniper. But I like to try to pick em off to. We usually play around our whole property ( 132 acres.) Long games usually.

    If your going to make it a sniper. make it a sniper. Your not going to be picking them off with a longer barrel and sight. You need internal stuff. Its basically like saying im going to put a longer barrel on my pistol and go snipe. its just not going to happen. If your going to do it. do it right.

    completely un related note: Im finally a senior member. How did that happen?

    All you need is a new spring, new barrel, new buckings, and some other stuff. Just cant think of it at the moment.

    I would suggest getting a lonex red piston, SHS m150 spring, metal spring guide(if you don't already have one) lonex high torque gears, lonex piston head, double O-ring cylinder head, and a new air nozzle. Also try a Lonex orange a2 high torque motor.

    That will bump 1. Your fps up a lot.
    2. Your range and durability of your gearbox, and also make sure to get some good, heavy bb's.

    Also try a matrix 509mm 6.03 tbb, and a madbull 75 degree hop up bucking. If your barrel isn't long enough, just get a 6in barrel extension.

    Now for your stock and battery, if you like your crane stock, you can use that but if you want to change it...I would go to an echo 1 m16a2 full stock and get yourself a nice 7.4v or 11.1v lipo battery( don't forget a lipo smart charger).

    If you want a longer rail for the barrel extension, look into UTG 12" free float rail(if you don't already have it, you will need to get a "real" style delta ring for this also).

    On most m4's all you need to do it take out the mag catch, take off the hand grip, upper receiver, the buffer tube, there is a pin next to the trigger guard that you'll need to pop out also, and your hop up unit ( if its a 2 piece unit), then the gearbox will pull right out) with a little wiggling), don't forget to watch your wires!!
