Another beginner gun thread from teh osprey

Alright, so I had my eye on the KA colt m4a1 lately, because it was recommended to me. The one I found was 330 dollars for this:

Please note that this unit has a orange tip but can easily be changed to black.----------------------------King Arms Colt M4A1 Full Metal Airsoft Rifle with Battery and Charger included. Specifications: --------Full Metal AEG --------7mm Bearing Gear Box --------14.5″ Outer Barrel --------Functional Bolt Catch System --------Magazine Capacity = 300 Rds Magazine Included --------Calibre = 6mm Airsoft BB --------Weight: 3.00kg --------Length: 87-95cm --------Velocity = 430-450 fps** with .20gr BB’s --------Power = 8.4V, 9.6V NiMh Battery --------Battery and Charger are included. --------Upgraded King Arms spring M130 --------This item comes with full Colt Trademarks.

However, the echo1 Advanced Squad Carbine has gone on sale for 290 dollars with these specs:

Product Specs:

Weight:
InnerBarrel Length: 300mm
Barrel Caliber: 6mm
BB Capacity: 300Rounds
Initial BB Speed: 460fps
Battery Type: Mini/Custom
Body Material: Metal Upper, Plastic Lower

Package includes:
- Rifle itself
- 2 high capacity magazine
- Standard battery and charger combo set
- clearing rod
- manual

My question is, because I know internals and all that matter, which should I look into getting? I like full metal, but the ASL has more rails and is cheaper... Any recommendations as to what I should do?

Sorry about the typo in the title by the way, just noticed that.

Ok, good to know. No rails though from the looks of it.

yes there is. You can take off the top handle and it becomes a rail.

Changing the foregrip to something with more railestate is easy, possibly as simple as swapping them for magpul ones, a thirty second fix. Swapping out gearbox parts is not simple.

I would dish out that extra cash for sure, it's going to pay off in the long run. Besides from all I've read KA is solid.

That's all they gave me, and the video reviews aren't really helpful. The people seem more interested in the colt trademarks than the internals.

King Arms Internals are pretty good given the price in my opinion
Nothing too fancy if you compare to some upgrades, but when you compare to anything like echo1 (from what I saw, which is not much though) it looks much better

Metal Receiver is the way to go

You can always buy a RIS or RAS and replace your heatguard later

+1 for King Arms, my brother and his friend both got new guns about two months ago. My brother picked up an Echo 1 AK47 and his friend got a King Arms M4. So far both have had minor issues but the King Arms seems to have the better quality over all.

A firend of mine got a King Arms M4a1 for christmas and has been loving it. I threw in a new spring for him (It was shooting hot for our games) and it's a SOLID gun, inside and out. I didn't even need to regrease the mechbox, it was looking pretty good as is. Great balance to it as well.
