For sure, but let's not make this thread too redundant.
If you want to have a starter gun that has an original look to it, while sacrifing some future modifications, get the Dragon.
If you want to have a starter gun that has a more bland look but a longer lifespan, due to modification options, get the M4.
Which brand of M4 to get? That I wouldn't know, still somewhat of a "Noob" myself.
