. A "Lancer M4A1 Carbine", from what I can tell it's made of plastic with the exception of a V2 metal gearbox. I know most people would say to avoid low-priced AEGs like the plague, but for someone like me who's on a budget this kit looks pretty attractive. Is there any reason why I shouldn't start out the hobby with a gun such as this?
Save your money. Buy quality the first time, and avoid repeating the need to buy twice. Airsoft is NOT a cheap hobby by any means. You need to save up your cash, get a reputable, quality brand-name of a weapon as a base, and go from there. If you don't have around $1000.00 for guns, gear/BDU's and protective equipment, to start - then you don't have a good financial base to start off with in this sport.
