Plus, from the store I'm buying from the full metals are not that cheap.

What do you think?
A metal body isn't necessary for gaming, but it DOES make the gun overall stronger.

MOST bodies will require some work -filing, fitment, etc.- to mate up properly with a non-FMU gun, especially if it's an "off" clone. There's a reason we usually recommend buying FMU (full metal) from the outset instead of plastic and upgrading later. Not that it can't be done, many people do it, just don't expect a perfect easy swap.

If you get Age Verified you can gain access to the AV Retailer section. There are several retailers that sell 100% bone stock Classic Army guns. These have pretty good metal bodies on them and shoot around 312 FPS stock.

So, you can game with a plastic body. Just don't beat on the gun too hard and you'll be fine, or you can proceed with buying a metal body and fitting it on the gun, just don't expect a 100% perfect fit.

Actually kalnaren, a lot of CA guns are shooting around 380-400 stock.

When did that happen? The bunch I've got my hands on (arguably a few years old) were around 315.

The classic army new X-series are built to shoot 380-400 fps stock.

Best M4 metal body I've seen. The body finish and look are impressive and is a step over G&P. I could say it is comparable to a VFC M4.
