My only gripe with KA's M4 is the colour of their lower bodies. It's a weird slightly off bronze-ish tone for some reason and doesn't really fit with other "black" furniture. Although it can kind of look cool I guess.
Note that the color thing concerns only the Colt's M4.
I have a Larue Tactical and it's totally black, but is a bit harder to find and a bit more expensive
Also, there's a slight chance you can get a "lemon", like me. Had to invest a few upgrades on the get go to make it work properly (I could do a game or two at first, then started having some issues)
But this could happen with any brands really. I guess I'm a bit biased due to my experience with mine. Still a good gun that I'd recommend. The fake bolt is really crappy though :P
On a side note:
Did you sell your paintball gear? If not, do it
You won't go back to paintball after trying Airsoft :P (Yeah that's a bold statement but.... :P)
