I do agree with Sportco that most people swap aegs at some point (I did buy a second aeg - my MP40 - after 4 months of airsoft - turns out that my DDR NVA impression was almost impossible to assemble and flecktarn + AK is kind a farb - I am kind of an hypocrite
albeit I still use my AK for winter games and as a backup weapon); however, starting out with an aeg you like will make or break your airsoft experience (I have a friend who bought a TF16 and thought I was dumb to buy my G&G AK for twice as much. He ended up with a broken aeg - stripped gears - after 3 games; my AK is still going strong after 5 games and many skirmishes). Making the wrong choice can be fixed by simply selling your aeg in the classified and buying a new one. Still, making the right decision in the first place is ultimately better for your wallet
and you can invest the difference on something useful like a good radio or extra mags etc.
