I held off on doing a build up until I had a really good idea off what I wanted from it. I used, owned a bunch of different guns and still have 4 aeg's including my project gun. I found it impossible to buy a high rof gun with high fps. High fps out of box is easy, high rof out of box hard to find and very pricey. Getting av'd proved way more trouble than it was worth for me. So when I went ahead with a full buildup I opted to go nuts. The result is an awesome gun that resembles no actual m4 but has great rof and high fps. I gamed her all last summer after destroying the piston in test fires and replacing it before the season with no other issues. My budget was similar to yours and I stayed within it but with a bit of help from a couple spare parts and some discounted parts from a local shop. Make sure you ask around about compatibility first and make sure you know how to use a dremel if you decide to go ahead with a build.

The PDW is nice if you don't mind having a battery box up front.

Surprised nobody mentioned Krytac.
Stock for stock, they're better than VFC both internally (factory 3034 MOSFET, stronger gears) and externally (ingenious ambi-selector switch; better thought-out battery compartment and routing)

On another note, VFC is finally revamping their 2015 gearboxes for the VR series guns to improve the piston, tappet plate and gears. Downside - the solid bushings are replaced by bearings. Possible integrated MOSFET.

But North American market continues to get shafted with VR series engraved receivers for the most part.
Now if only there were guns with Avalon externals and Krytac internals....

Haha yeah I know stupid question but that's awesome!!! Anything you can tell me about getting started in our area?? I live in Harvey station/McAdam and will be in Saint John for 6 weeks! I've been to a field in Freddy but I really don't know of anymore places to be honest as for getting AV'ed in our area I'm guessing is a long shot😕 but who knows! Hopefully sometime I'll see you at a field!! I'll probably be busy this summer but I'll hit the fields big time before and during the fall hopefully if they are still open

Yuck, although I guess unless you splurge you'll only get the VFC logo too.

Most licensed Daniel Defense, Noveske, Barrett, Colt, KAC VFCs have traditionally always sold for well north of $500, compared to $300 (as low as $230 USD) for VFC E-series or the now VR series.

But hey! at least Krytac's are engraved. Have you seen the G&G trades? LOL...

Just wait till Krytac releases their Warsport-licensed LVOA cerakoted replica, all of the AngryGun Wirecutter fanboys are gonna seppuku themselves.

It's a tough life being a trade whore! An expensive one too... and I'm guilty as charged.

No, because I'm just going to buy the Krytac model as well. Their .22LR version as well.

Besides, KAC lower 'til I die. Ambidextrous for the win.
