What Entry level M4 should I buy.

Recommended Posts

So I am new to air-soft and am looking at buying my first M4 Rifle, I have looked at several different guns that I will link below, however they all have different things that put me off buying them.

 

My requirements:

 

- Needs to be two tone

- Budget £135 (Include battery)

- Metal trigger if possible

- As high a build quality as possible for my budget

- A mounting rail for a tactical grip

- High cap mag

- 300 fps+

 

Guns I have considered so far:

Thanks for any help.

Hey Jacob. Welcome to the forums.

 

Don't get any of those - though the CYMA stuff is alright, those websites are awful and don't deserve your custom. Read this: http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/index.php/topic/3779-the-beginners-guide-to-airsoft/

 

For the future too, it's worth searching the forums before opening a new thread. There have been hundreds who have asked the same question as you and you'll find more complete answers in less time if you put in a little effort by searching first.

Thanks for the help, however I live in to UK and there is a limitation on the amount of good websites I can order off, if you could suggest any particular UK based websites or any particular gun, that would be awesome. Thanks

I think we mostly all do. This is, after all, airsoft-forums.co.uk.

 

Throw those suggested guns/brands from the guide into Google and you'll get your answer quickly. If you're unsure about a retailer then certainly all of the larger UK ones have their own thread in the forum with reviews: http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/index.php/forum/10-places-to-buy/

 

The UK actually has the best selection of airsoft shops in all of Europe so you shouldn't struggle to find somewhere that offers a 2-tone service as well as the gun you want. Usual disclaimer we give to all new people though: Consider not buying a gun first - rather rent your gun when you go skirmishing to obtain UKARA or some other way to prove a defence before spending money on something bright orange/green/blue. It's all covered in the guide.

Zero one

Patrolbase

Ak2m4

Airsoftworld (debatable but I've had no problems)

fire support

socom tactical

Beesting

 

Are just a few of the good uk sites :)

 

As for a gun general recommendation is a g&g combat machine cheap, reliable, loads of parts for it and easy to work on http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/index.php?sortcol=3&sortdir=a&cPath=268_318_403_494&page=1 Wh do you want a metal trigger if you don't mind me asking?

Welcome. Lots of people here recommend the G&G Combat machine range as a good starter M4. Not something I have personal experience with but from what I have seen they're pretty decent.

Airsoft zone are a decent retailer and have some starter packs available.

If you don't need the starter pack items look on the website for just the gun itself.

+1 for G&G starters closely followed by ICS

Raider is #1 selling mofo - yes common as muck but good bang for buck

Also never ever ever buy anythin for a site that has "BB" in the name. Unless you know what you are doing.

You don't want a BB gun u want an Airsoft weapon.

 

:)

 

They have some good deals (on sub £100 guns) sometimes - but while at the same time splattered with rip offs.

Like everyone else has said: G&G or ICS for a good quality starter M4.

 

Personally prefer the ICS for the quick change gearbox.

What sort of sites will you be playing? If it's CQB then you will want a sorter m4 variant, I have an ICS CXP for indoors and a long barrel ICS PAR Mk3 with X4 Acog for out doors. Both cracking guns, although a bit above your budget. The G&G have inferior internals apparently? Although I am no tech savy so can't speak from personal experience.
