    Part one:
    I have a combat machine, its stock internals

    Should I upgrade it or sell to a new player and buy new gun ( m16 or m14/m21)

    As it sits I have $170 in stuff I will sell with it

    My problem is it needs a lot for field play, and it is perfect for cqb in my area.

    Part two:
    if I sell and buy new, what should I get or what upgrades to do to new or my combat machine

    New guns must be under 400fps stock, 450fps upgraded and non g&g

    Thank you in advance


    Thanks

    This is what I said to some one else I have a good idea of what you should get. It's a jg gun that has full rail system, full metal gear box. It the m4 s system thats colored tan and black or full black and it's only $130. It's cheap enough of a gun That u can get a lot of upgrades that aren't cheap and will break.

    Just upgrade. Cheaper and you'll have a better gun than any stock gun you can get (depending on how you upgrade, $300 will get you a lot in terms of upgrades).

    What do you want? Upgrading can make a gun you don't like into your favorite gun. You want over 400 FPS? M130-M150 spring, Lonex Red motor, shimming, AOE, new bushings (CM bushings are meh), SHS 15tooth (not necessary but with $300 why not), Rhop, prommy 6.03 TBB, 16 AWG wiring, deans connectors, 11.1v LiPo, and LiPo charger.

    Edit: @magkill: you must have heard of many guns then... There are a LOT of guns better than the Dboys PDW. His current gun is arguably better.

    I like my firing rate so hi-speed motor is optional

    I know I need
    Gears $20
    Prometheus 6.03 barrel. $55
    New hop up $30
    New outer barrel $30
    flip up front sight $14-40
    Lube $?
    R-hop $?
    And maybe that motor $45

    That's around $200 total
    $150 from my gun selling+ $200 budget= around price but having a m16a4 or m14 that I like better than m4



    I'll get to high fps from a new spring I'm using a new m120 spring

    If you REALLY don't want your M4, sell it and grab a G&G M14 and change out the wiring. It's not amazing (in my experience anyway).

    Why are you so against G&G? The M14 is of much higher quality than the CM (this is judging that you're basing your opinion off of your CM).

    The G&P, for both. KWA aegs are proprietary, and I very briefly owned one of their g36's before I returned it, I was not at all impressed. I'd stick to KWA for gas guns, not much else.

    If you get a G&P, then I fail to see where the money for upgrades are. Honestly just upgrade your G&G. You'll get better performance, and just upgrade the externals if you don't like them.

    I say get the G&P and upgrade that. Personally I have never seen the point in internally upgrading a gun that has mediocre externals. But that's just my style. I'm big into externals.
