A high-quality all-metal *new* AEG in the M4 style (Classic Army, G&P, new-line Tokyo Marui) will be in the $700+ range....used in the $500 range. A mid-range all-metal one will be $400+ new, and certainly over $300 used. Don't forget, you will need a battery ($50+), a *decent* battery charger ($40 and up), and several additional magazines ($50-$100) to start playing. That's assuming you already have eye protection, and doesn't include the cost of BDU's and load-bearing gear.

If you absolutely don't have to have all metal, the new line of "CanSoft" M4's by G&G are a good buy. They have a dark tinted polycarbonate lower and a metal upper, and are easy to find aftermarket replacement parts for. Expect to pay over $400 for these.

Figure on spending $750+ just to get a decent gun and some basic gear. That's less than a lot of people spend on other hobbies (golf, snowboarding, photography, R/C) so if that seems like too much, perhaps consider another hobby. If you begin playing on orgainized games, you'll be playing alongside people who have thousands (and some, tens of thousands) worth of guns and gear.
