    Hello everybody, I am looking to buy an m14 ebr for around $200. This are my two options:

    SAGE International Licensed Full Metal "Evil Black Rifle" M14 EBR Enhanced Airsoft AEG Rifle by 6mmProShop / ASG
    http://www.evike.com/products/51430/

    AND

    CYMA M14 RIS EBR (Evil Black Rifle) Custom Full Metal Airsoft AEG Sniper Rifle - Black
    http://www.evike.com/products/39970/

    I'm leaning more toward the Sage because it looks more true to the real steel EBR. Does anybody have any experience with these two rifles? any recommendations? Thanks

    They both look like the 'real steel' version, one is based on the Mk14 Mod 0 EBR (Sage) and the other Mk14 Mod 1 EBR (Echo1)

    I prefer the Mod 0 version for the unique stock.

    Oh thanks I didn't know that. That makes things more interesting.

    The CYMA M14 is a pretty well-known quantity around here. You should be able to find quite a few reviews out there. I owned one once and liked it for the price. My hop-up was bad, but I replaced it for fairly cheap.

    As for the JG/ASP/whatever Evike calls it, I've only been able to find one guy who did a review, but his opinion was pretty unerringly positive.

    Just keep in mind, the greatest flaw of the EBR platform for airsoft is the weight. You're probably carrying around twelve pounds, and while that doesn't seem too absurd, just remember you're going to have to support it with one arm held outstretched.

    CYMA makes excellent M14s. I'd stick with them. My complaint with almost all EBRs is the weight. They are super front heavy. I honestly wouldn't want to carry one for long at all. Keep that in mind.

    Thanks guys. I think I'm going to go with the cyma. I have considered the weight and I think it will be heavy but more realistic and I'm not a small guy anyway.

    I want to change the crane stock to one like this.

    Do they make crave stocks like this with a cheek riser? All the ones I've seen are like the one it comes with.

    That's an MOE stock with a riser.

    Unlike a crane stock, MOE stocks can't house a battery so you will need to use a buffer tube lipo, get an external battery bag, or re-wire the gun to the front and use a PEQ box.

    Thanks for the info. Is it was a crane stock but it did not look like there is space for a battery. Is there a specific "buffer tube lipo" or do I just need to find one that fits in the tube?

    I used a "stick" 7.4v lipo in my G&P m4 buffer tube. You would just need to find something that fits (I don't think there is a specific "buffer tube" battery type).

    I agree with the lipo battery, it is mostly what I use now. Alternatively, if cost is an issue you can get 8.4v and 9.6v battery packs designed for use with a crane stock
