How would i go about doing this?

I am new to this hobby and am looking into building up an airsoft gun replica of the M4A1 carbine i would like to build it up from seperate manufacturers(not just some kit that all the pieces come together), i would like it 2 look as real as possible, price is not a huge deal but would prefer it to be rather afforable, So what companys make the most realistic M4 rifle? the accessories i would like to install on it would be an infrared scope,good sized suppressor,laser sight,M203 grenade launcher,tactical flashlight,and also if it could have ejecting shells even better ,in hindsight something like this except with laser sight and suppressor, thnx a bunch-A.R.P(also i would like it so it feels and weighs the same as the actual gun itself)

you want a systema ptw
but since those are like 2200

hurricane metal body
g&p crane stock
real ras of some sort.
real front sight
real rear sight
systema steel body furniture kit.
some sort of a steel barrel.
systema drop in mechbox
some reinforced pistol grip
systema motor
g&p socom silencer aka"donkey cock"
surefire or pentagon taclight
just anything that is steel because it weighs more

most real parts are way way cheaper, like the front sight and ras and its obviouslt way better quality.

First you make a choice;

Price, or quality.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Infrared scope", as far as my knowledge goes there is no such thing. Do you mean a Night Vision Optic? Or perhaps a Thermal optic?

As for weight, chances are will weigh more than the real thing after you slap everthing on there... I know its been done before with other AEGs.

Other than that, as 10 other people are about to say read the FAQs and take a look at the "canadian retailers" tab. Between Mark at A&A and the guys at ASCA you should find every item your looking for.

By the same token, get age verified so you can shop the used section as well.

Thermal and IR are the same thing. Hell, Elcan makes a scope called the Spectre IR. 'Course.....it costs as much as a 2 year old small car, but hell, he wants the best.

I'm sorry. "Realistic" and "affordable" aren't often allowed to be used together when talking about airsoft. That's the way it is - if you want realisitic, go buy a REAL M4....it's cheaper than trying to build a realisitic fake one.

I am going to impart to you the advice that I should have followed when I built my C8 (canadian version of the M4).

Just buy a Systema PTW. it will end up costing you less, and being more realistic than anything that even comes close, that you would build from parts.

If you're going to play with it set up like that you'd better start some upper body strength training now...

That's pretty far from what he's looking for unless he straps a brick to the gun.

That gun he depicted does have a lazer pointer on it. Its on the other side of that boom mount. This side has the tac light, and the other has a lazer.


Speaking of which, where do I get one of THOSE mounts?

I personally would get agre verified first and see what ASCA has to offer. For the price of TM M4A1, I'd rather pay a small fraction more for a full metal Classic Army from ASCA.

An M203 combined with a silencer. WTF? Pick one or the other, not both. You wouldnt see that in real steel, and yet you say you want it as realistic as possible.
