Another m4 dilemma

ok. so im ready to start upgrading to better guns and gear. im looking for an m4, but unsure of what would be my best approach. what i need/want is:

a m4 that is short. im not a tall guy so i want something that is small and compact, so a cqb m4 verison ive been looking for.

I will be using this gun for outdoor. from what ive seen, cqb m4's shoot below 350 fps. since i want to be using this gun for outdoor id like to upgrade to a bigger spring. so i need a cqb m4 that the internals can handle a bigger spring and it wont be to powerful for. if i cant find a gun like this what internal upgrades would i need to run a higher fps.

I also want a rail system for the front, so either the gun has to come with one, or i will just buy one from someplace like ehobby asia. And id like a full metal body.

I understand that fps does not mean range. and im not starting this thread to find out what impact fps has, but, i do want range and accuracy on this gun. so id be looking to upgrade the inner barrel for the accuracy, but what barrel should i be looking for?

I understand that i might not be able to find all this in one gun, im just looking for the gun with most of what i need, and i can upgrade from there.

Some of the guns ive been looking at is the ARES enhanced m4. there is two versions that can be found here http://www.oneworldairsoft.com/page/...ries-10119.cfm the cqb verison is roughly $100 more.

ive also been looking into some of the classic army guns, but there are alot of different models i dont know which one would be the better choice.

any help at all would be great. thanks a lot.

No, a gun shoots whatever you want to make it shoot. A CQBR M4 is just shorter. You can have it shoot 500fps if you wanted to.

You mentioned Classic Army. That's a good start, and you may want to upgrade the spring like you said. An inner barrel upgrade may not provide much of an accuracy upgrade but that's your choice.

yes lol i understand that. what i ment was that when u buy a stock cqb m4, they usually come shooting under 350 fps. so im looking for one that i can upgrade to a bigger spring and the internals can handle it

Any CA should have fairly similar internals (exluding the Sportline models of course). Any one would be a good choice.

A $15 spring (and $40-$60 inner barrel if you want) is all you need for what you described you want.

If you read the stats for the ARES Enhanced M4 Series, you'll notice that it comes with upgraded internals and features a quick spring swap system.

The KWA CQBR comes running around 400FPS.

Or you could go for something somewhat on the rare side and get an LR300. I really, REALLY like mine. Of course people will say what they want about A&K (pretty much the only people who make them) but if you get a good one (which you can tell right away) then they are excellent! They usually run on the hotter side as well.

Mine didn't, it was shooting 349.999999 fps.
