I've settled with a Classic Army (if I could get my hands on one) M15A4 R.I.S Carbine (Rial Interface System) <-- I don't know if 'Rials' a spelling error, but it was made twice so it probably isn't, and if not, what does it mean?

That should be "Rail". A RIS is a system that replaces the standard forestock of the M4/M16 family of rifles with a set of Picatinny rail mounts for the attachment of accessories - light mounts, horizontal grips, laser painters, launchers, etc. Basically, it provides attachment flexibility to suit the operation at hand.

I only want rails for the left side, and bottom. (TacFlash and Masterkey or a grip) and I do love the G36c, but I just can't see myself enjoying playing with one, it's too.. bulky? that along with the Famas, but sniper rifles are roughly $1000?!!? Cheezus, maybe sniping won't be that badass anyway. but I gotta get back to work been sitting here for like an hour trying to figure out what to say. x] , I'll finish this when I get home!
Good choice. And yeah, if you're only playing short games then you could probably get away with small batteries. An RIS or RAS would be easy to get. But it's going to increase the front heaviness that you're already getting from the front wired battery. Also, most RIS/RAS can't fit a battery in them. So you'll still have to use a battery bag, PEQ box or something similar.

A stock sniper rifle doesn't cost that much. But to make it more then a slow firing version of your average assault rifle it takes alot of upgrades. Easily doubling the cost of the weapon if not more.

As was mentioned in another post, I'd advise against the masterkey. The airsoft version looks pretty but that's about it. If what you're after is basically a blast of buckshot for close range then what you really want is an m203 grenade launcher, since in airsoft the m203 works like an oversized shotgun. And if you use propane powered grenades there's really no minimum engagement distance.

Here's a shot of me firing my grenade launcher. If you look carefully you can see the cloud of bbs firing out.

The Rial is most definitely a spelling error, as you can see right under the "Profiles" section the first bullet clearly states the gun has a Rail Interface System which is the derivative of R.I.S.

PS: You will also see R.A.S which is Rail Adapter System.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Tough break. Here's hoping it turns around for you.

Man that sucks. Just keep your head up and try to get yourself sorted out.

Maybe you just need a change of direction in your life. A lifestyle change or something. For me it was going from some stupid high school kid to an "adult". It just happened one day where I woke up and was like "K, I gotta do this shit" and everything just fell into place.

Hope that happens for you.
