What more do I need to make this functional? TM M9

Normally, I'd ask in the Airsoft Gun section, but I'm know nothing about gas guns.

So, I have an opportunity to get some parts for really cheap. Im just unsure if it'd be worth building a gun out of them, or just selling them.

I can get a:

TM M9 Outer Barrel, TM M9 ABS Slide, TM M9 ABS Frame.

Ofcourse, I'd need some extra parts to make this a functional gun.

I know I'd need an inner barrel, mag, Hand Grips, trigger. But what else would I need?

And you guys are welcome to spoonfeed me to a website where I can buy most or all of the parts, but I dont mind looking myself.

Also, I've heard of parts being kinda hard to find for this gun. Is that correct?

Thanks guys.

You'd need all internals, in which case you're probably better off buying a new gun entirely.

100% correct. Not entirely worth it and I'm not even sure all of the parts needed are available for purchase.

Not worth it. Too many small bits that need to be purchased that are basically impossible to find on the market (new or used). Just buy a new gun and have those bits as spares, or use them as a bargaining tool for dealing with you gun doc

I would have to agree with the rest here. And even if you did go ahead and find all the parts gas guns are very very picky, its like trying to build a ferrari from parts. It will never be the same as the real thing, and probably end up costing you more in the end.

Best thing to do would be finding a gun on the classifides that has say a broken slide or what not for super cheap and use your parts to make it good again.

I beg to differ... building guns from parts is totally fun, and if you pick the right parts (ahem, ILLusion's stuff) you can get a much, much better gun out of parts than you ever could out of OEM parts.

Buying a broken one likely means you're buying a heavily used/abused one. Unless you know your stuff about pistols or have tinkered with the Marui M9 design before... that probably isn't such a great idea. Just saying.
