Even at 300 a KA m4 would have me thinking really hard. 100$ more and you'd have essentially this is, but all new.
What's really TM left about it? the hopup and outer barrel? Everything else is KA and G&P.
I'm putting a valuation on the accessories as well.
I know a PEQ battery box is cheap, like $15 or whatever but toss in the battery + battery box, flash light, vert grip, short rail section cover, ladder panels, and optic (which is probably an ACM optic). It could be like $425.
Gun lets say $250-275 (TM innards, some "upgrade" parts, plus it's got the G&P metal body)
Battery + battery box $30
Vert grip $10
Flash light+mount $50
Rail ladder + rail cover $10
Mags x18 (Star mags are kind of shitty IMO): $40-45
