An M4 with a m203, a double handful of mags and a handful of 40mm grenades should do you for what you seem to want, maybe a couple of AI hand-grenades as well.

No laser sights, no airsoft field worth the name will let you play with a laser due to potential eye damage. No need for a scope, the range on airsoft guns isn't long enough to bother with scopes. Though a red dot sight wouldn't go astray.

While gas powered rifles do have alittle more going for them in terms of realism, they're alot more expensive, alot more temperamental, and require a fair bit more maintenance. As a first weapon I highly advise getting an AEG (automatic electric gun) rather then a GBBR (gas blow back rifle).

And that's what we're trying to tell you. If you're gonna get all that other stuff, then you might wanna reconsider and just get less but better quality stuff instead. Cuz a lot of people here did exactly what you're suggesting and are trying to pass own their own experiences so you don't make the same mistake.

I would suggest at least 2 long guns +2 pistol for your armory, yes, at least.

In my case, If my wife allows me and I am not bankrupted....I'd like to have

At least 1 bullpup : Real sword T97
At least 1 AR: Real sword M4/M16 (GBBR & AEG once they released)
At least 1 DMR: Real sword T88 (once it released)
At least 1 AK: Real Sword Type 56
At least 1 GBBR: Inokatsu M4 (Maybe, if the Real sword M4 GBBR is better then no)
At least 1 Sub: MP5A4

TM G17
KSC Sigpro Series
Absolutely no gay ass DE!!!

Lots of Magazines
Lots of holsters, from blackhawk to safariland to Bladetac to leather to ...etc
Lots of Optics
50 kilo of .25 BBs

And finally a steel made gun shelf and a Pelican gun case.

The list is endless for me, probably for most other people too.

This would be my collection if I lived in Imaginary FairyLand and were given three wishes for guns including accessories:

Real Sword Type 56-1

- Side-rail permanently attached.
- Magazines electrical-taped together in reversed pairs.
- PSO-1 scope, may be removed for interior use.
- Mag-lite electrical-taped onto right side of grip when required.

Tanaka M700 Police L.T.R.

- Forward positioning of scope mounts.
- Cheek rest.
- Light, permanently attached bipod.
- Extended magazine, mainly for cosmetic purposes.
- Three-point sling.
- Low-magnification scope.
- Whatever modifications required for good accuracy.


- Small sling.
- EOTech-type holographic sight.
- Silencer mounted whenever not being used as a secondary.
- Tactical light on left side of rail, mounted when required.

And that seems to be it. Out of all of these, the Real Sword (and associated accessories) is what I want most, with the MP9 a very secondary priority. The Tanaka would be an impossibility at best, since it is way out of my price range (I estimate import costs to start at $900). There's a few other guns I would like to purchase, but they're unavailable and in any case, I think I should restore my gas gun to perfect working order before I start on making it gameable.

Holy shit, I spent something like two hours compiling and writing this list.
