I own a Bushmaster AR, and having become a little familiar with that over the last few years I've owned it, I was really disappointed in the Norinco CQ311. For the price, it seems OK, but the quality control is a tad on the BLECHH!! side.
Their M305 gets rave reviews, and many prefer it over the Springfield.
I have a hard time swallowing $800 for the Norc when you can still get Stag, Bushy, etc for double the price, and Imperial for a little less.
I don't think I'd waste the cost and effort and risks for a real lower on an airsoft gun.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.
Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.
Never confuse freedom with democracy.
