    What's the best M4 out there for around 200 bucks?

    Edit:

    I don't really want anything special. No blow-back. Just a few tactical rails and good distance and power.

    There is no "Best".

    Each brand/model has its own pros and cons.

    Awe yeah! :)

    Get what you think you would like the most. Just don't get a LPEG with a plastic gearbox...They can't be fixed and have horrid performance compared to an AEG.

    I have to agree with Rocky, I have two of those one is like a year and a half old and still no problems and the other one is like a little over a year old and still no problems. They are pretty durable, have a good ROF, good accuracy, and good range, and a decent FPS.

    If you want a good ugrade platform, and don't care bout externals, get a JG

    If you won't touch the gun, get one of those KWAs with plastic externals

    If you might touch the gun, get an ICS (probably the best overall choice).

    If I were you I would get a KWA CQR because its KWA so you won't have to upgrade it out of the box and its 190$. It doesn't come with rails but you can slap some MOE hand guards on there and you'll be good

    For 200? I like the KWA CQR series. There are no rails other than the top rail, but you can get an underslung rail for a foregrip for really cheap. They shoot around 350 with .25s, and have a great ROF with a 9.6 or a 7.4 lipo. 11.1 may be a little much on the weak spring and ported cylinder, so I say stick with the other two options. They come stock with a 6.05 barrel, so you'll get good accuracy, plus a metal upper receiver for nice weight and durability, and they come in CQB and Carbine length barrels, both for 190 bucks.

    What do you mean don't care about jg externals? I like jg externals, they feel great, with the exception of a few parts it's all metal.

    Uh what? JG externals suck, grey receivers, TM delta ring, and I also hate the snap together receivers with two piece hop ups.

    So what about grey receivers? Snap together receivers add to the realism. Jg externals feel like a real m4, if you get the metal one of course.

    They have a TM delta ring, weak *** charging handle spring, non functioning forward assist, grey barbie plastic bodies(jg metal is made custom at stores), and terribly shiny flimsy stock, motor grip, and handguard dude. Coming from the owner of a JG M4, a KWA M4, and a real AR.

    I have a real AR as well, and I'm talking about the metal one from gi, the stock the gi one comes with has barely any wobble, it is matte black color, not shiny, the grip is the same color, and the hand guard is black. The gi body is metal as well. Plus the performance out of the box is great, it goes about 120 and is pretty accurate at that distance stock with the hop up on normal.

    Well, compare a JG handguard and a KWA, G&P, or VFC handguard. The JG is a weak, sort of shiny plastic, while the other brands are very strong, completely matte fiber reinforced polymer.
