I will buy my last gun next month before my UKARA expires in early March.
I have considered pistols, but I already have eight. I have three rifles, all sub-carbines which I bought with CQB in mind.
So I have decided to go for another rifle - an aeg because I can't really afford a decent gbbr and extra mags, and aegs are pretty much maintenance free if you are just a plinker like me.
I have finally developed a liking for M4s and would like a normal size battle rifle. And it will probably have to be Chinese nimh powered rifle because of price. So I would appreciate advice from owners.
This ticks most of the boxes because of its looks and price: https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-sa-b01-m4a1-carbine-assault-rifle?pv=7988
Difficult to believe it's less than 150 quid with a metal receiver from a brand many think is good. Or are the Edge series so much better that I should consider this: https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-rock-river-arms-sa-e01-edge-carbine?pv=10275 or this:https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-rock-river-arms-sa-e03-edge-carbine?pv=9480. These guns can have a spring change through the stock, but plinkers don't really need to change springs. They also have basic mosfet to protect circuits. Do they have any other improvements my first choice lacks? Are they just a more reliable gun?
And then there is the Cyma range of metal M4s like this one:https://www.airsoftworld.net/cyma-colt-m4a1-airsoft-rifle-aeg-with-free-magazine-full-metal.html#product-tabs Not highly regarded I know, but bomb proof by all accounts.
Bear in mind that I am looking for an inexpensive 9.6 powered metal rifle with decent externals which will hang on a wall most of the time and get occasional use at a range, not a top quality rifle with superb hop, high ROF etc -just something that can hit a man sized target at 20-30 yards most of the time.
Should I go for a Specna , Specna Edge or Cyma? I would appreciate your advice.
