    Hello, my little brother is getting a

    http://www.airsoftatlanta.com/JG-M4-S-System-AEG-Desert-Tan-p/65014b.htm

    He wants to upgrade it external and internally. I could do the upgrades but i don't know what to get because i mainly focus with snipers and hangout on the airsoft sniper forum. I don't like to buy parts that i know ill replace so can someone give me some ideas on products of what to get for his gun. He'll get more money later but for now can you make around 200-250. Thanks :)

    PS- He's got his little heart set on getting some sort of red dot sight, so recommending a nice one would be appreciated.

    So you've been teching sniper rifles? Are you familiar with the R-Hop? It can be bought here:

    As Stephen said, adjust AoE, check the air seal, re-grease and re-shim.

    Age's shimming guide:

    For even better accuracy you can get a TBB, Prometheus makes very good ones but I'm sure you know that already.

    For better trigger response, switch out the Tamiya connectors to Deans and get a Li-Po battery + charger.

    If you get a red dot you may want to invest in a flip up shield for it.

    Flat-hop, deans, and an NC star red dot would make the gun field-able (depending on what field you go to, it might be the best one there because nobody upgrades at some). Shim, AoE with sorbo, polish, grease, a 11.1 20-35c 1000-3000MaH LiPo, steel bushings, ball bearing metal spring guide, Flat-hop, deans, and an NC star red dot would make it a beast. Both well under your budget- the former requires a little work (very little if you buy a bucking pre-flat hopped), the latter requires quite a bit more for a beginner.

    Good luck with the build.
