    Hey guys, I just bought a gun from a local sports store and the thing is crap, I guess I need to stay away from the $99 rifle and hand gun combo, it's all plastic and can't hit a soda can from 20 feet away :(. So I want to buy a gun from the price range of 200 - 300 dollars. I was hearing that g&g and ics are good brands and I would like a full metal gun. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks all.

    CQB or Field? Are you thinking an M4 platform? If so:
    ECHO 1 Troy (this is plastic)

    CA M4

    G&P M4

    And for a little over:
    VFC E SERIES

    Couple good brands are VFC, G&P, and Tokyo Marui stock. If you plan on upgrading try JG, Echo 1, ICS, CYMA,etc etc. Your going to want a nice battery( not one that comes with the gun) smart charger, High quality BBs, and good eye pro.

    If you are looking for m14s look into cyma, they have some decent ones and they also have some decent ak-47s.

    I'm thinking field play, an M4 platform would be my choice, I would like a gun with RIS so I can buy some upgrades. Also if I buy a gun that does not come with a battery, how do I know what battery would fit in the gun? Thanks!

    Recently bought a G&G GC16 carbine. Full metal, high-torque motor, 120 spring.
    I had it on one outing so far and it was pretty impressive. Only complaint so far is the hinge pin for the trap door seems to have a tendency to want to slide out, leaving the door hanging. Purchased from AirsoftGI for 201.00 on sale earlier in November. They are generally 260.00 The casting on the reciever is much crisper looking than the other polymer combat machine m16's I have. About all I'll do to it is fix the one problem I mentioned and wire it to Deans'.

    Not just AK-47.
    AK-47
    AK-74
    AKS-74U
    AK-101
    AK-104
    AK-74M.

    Ok I'm stopping. You get the point CYMA has good Kalishnikovs. Anything over CM.022.

    Actually, isn't it anything over CM.028? That's what I have always heard and thought.

    What I meant was CM.028 and up. Not the CM.022

    Ah. I guess it just looked odd to me. Suppose it's just simpler to me to say 028 and up.

    I can agree that the CYMA M14s are great guns, especially the Limited Edition on Airsoft Megastore's website. It should be $220, the price hasn't moved for awhile. It's full metal, real wooden stock, and consistent at 400 fps with the 8.4v battery it comes with. Just be very careful about the stock, mine broke a little while ago. If you look up Corrupted Airsoft on YouTube (link below in my sig) I have a review for it.

    Is that the one you duct taped together with brown duct tape?

    My sling became unattached and it hit the ground muzzle first. It was a sad day. :(

    Yes, it is lol. When I get another battery I'll start using it again.
