    Hello everyone Im new to this airsoft forum and just about anything else that deals with airsoft. So im going to get straight to it then.

    Price range: ($100-$200)

    Type of gun: (electric)

    Model: (big fan of g36c's but quality m4's can do also.)

    Ive been playing paintball for about 2 years but airsoft seems way more fun and realistic (and cheaper lol.) Also one other characteristic the gun I want needs to have is to be lightweight!! So yeah if any of you guys got recommendations I would appreciate any help...

    Thanks!

    EDIT: it was called the G-608 i think...

    EDIT: forgot to quote you lol

    If I can add something I would say get something with a crane stock, so if you want to have a bigger battery in the future you can fit it in more easily.

    Is there a way to mod the gun with a crane stock?

    Yes. The type of stock doesn't make a difference on whether or not you can upgrade/take the gun apart.

    I would recommend you don't worry about upgrading your rifle right off the bat, but the best place to get parts is http://www.clandestineairsoft.com/
    and
    https://www.brillarmory.com/

    edit: try not to double post/if you want to send a gun to a tech at any point I know Legacy, TheAirsoftTech, and I believe Zardichar all do quality tech work. You can find them on this forum.

    No I didnt, I am thinking about getting it as I get further involved in the airsoft community and get more knowledge on airsoft. So far I have an Echo 1 M4 which now all I have on it is a RDS and a foregrip. I am planning on putting a new bucking and barrel in it, and maybe a few more aesthetic upgrades also.

    I also bought a secondary, a Walther PPQ by VFC, I know in another thread I got everyone objected against buying it because it was 'proprietary' but it felt too good to pass up. They are now coming out with upgrade kits for it so parts wont be an issue. I might upgrade the bucking and barrel in that also, but there arent many parts out there for it, so im holding off on that.

    Sorry for the big answer to a small question, but no, I didn't buy the JG. I am also thinkin about getting a mystery box, anyone know if theyre any good?
