+1 on saving money, believe me, buying a tokyo marui gun for your first gun is a REALLY good idea. Think of resale value.
You can buy a chinasoft now, and when it breaks down in a year, it's worth nothing and it's questionable whether or not you can get parts, or if anyone even wants to work on it.
My old marui G3 is 7 years old, fully upgraded, probably only 200$ in the mechbox (saved on gears by using stock G&P gears from my 249), and with 10 mags it's still worth 700$!! AT SEVEN YEARS OLD!!
You'll buy a kraken for $200, and it won't be worth 200$ by next week lol
