im looking to make nice dmr my price range is 300
I've some some completely upgraded bolt actions selling for that much or less used, so I can at least tell you it's possible.
A difference between upgraded and completely upgraded is that a completely upgraded gun will rarely cost you 300.
If your budget is $300 you need to prioritize what's most important
. Most fellow DMR'ers choose "Accuracy" first and then move on from there with buying a TBB, some bucking and even a new hop-up if needed which will fit the bill.
JG m16 can be DMR'd for around that price range. there are two options, but i need to search my previous posts so i can cut n paste em... kinda busy at the moment comparing health insurance companies.
well what about the jg aug with a longer barrel and hop up and shimmed gearbos then a piston and optic
That's what I'm doing to my JG AUG except for the (unnecessary) longer barrel. and I do not call it a DMR.
this is about DMR builds. if you plan on 300 feet shots, you will need heavier bbs (.40g +). heavier bbs will reach their top acceleration in longer barrels (already tested this).
From what I know about DMRs, it isn't as simple as slapping in a few mods for accuracy and range, and calling it a day. It is usually a long build process, one that involves superb attention to detail, and usually a budget that is a little higher than $300, gun included.
That being said, if you're planning on upgrading a gun, might as well get a jg. They're cheap, TM compatible and you won't need to replace the gears. Alex's suggestion of a jg m16 is pretty much spot on. The AUG would be a good choice as well. JG makes a fairly nice AUG, and the externals aren't half bad either.
EDIT: accidentally pressed send before I was finished.
If I were you, I'd grab the m16 because there is a wealth of parts available vs the AUG. Also, the Bullpup configuration and 2 stage trigger take some getting used to, if you haven't used them before.
Upgrade your hop up first, then I would read Tacketts guide to getting 100% airseal. Good compression and a well tuned hop up will always get you further than a longer barrel or a tightbore. Then I'd get into the gearbox from there, and probably replace the piston and the nozzle, at least if you get a jg.
As far as the base goes, JG will be pretty cheap. But you can get a higher quality externals from a used gun for around the same price. For example I am selling a used CA M16 Proline w/ mosfet for $150 that would be a perfect DMR base.
Sorry, I should have worded that differently.
Yes, I had a discussion with KmKraft about this exact topic two days ago.
I was implying that a longer barrel was unnecessary since you need more force to push a BB the longer the barrel is. Force that he would not have without upgrading his cylinder and/or spring. Especially if he's gonna use heavier BBs.
In my JG AUG I had to change the cylinder when I got it 'cause it came with an Type 4 cylinder.
Edit: Added quote.
ok so i get a jg m16 with or without rails u think
Jroewe25, "u" is not considered an acceptable substitute for "you" around here, so take the time to spell the words fully. It is also part of the rules: http://www.airsoftsociety.com/forums/f4/announcement-rules-regulations.html
