CA armalites are generally excellent AEGs. The most common problem encountered is premature piston failure, which is easily remedied with replacement (I prefer stock TM pistons, but any will generally do).

Here's a link to a review Arnie's did for the gen 4 CA armalites;

TMs almost never come full metal. Only ones that I know of is the Type 97 (could be mistaken on that one) and the receiver of the M14.

$350 for a CA is a VERY good price, usually you find lower end JG, Echo1 and the like for that price. Id highly recommend that you have a gun doctor take a look at her insides before you finalize the deal. When you were told to check for damage, it doesn't only mean externally, its mainly concerning the mechbox as there might be damage to what makes the airsoft gun for *ffftffffftfffffftfft*

Hard to find an all metal gun for a price like that. I have the M15A4 rifle that I bought new just under 2 years ago. With a battery and shipping, it cost me just shy of $700. So yeah, it's a good deal if it's the CA Proline.

Now there's also the CA Sportsline which are their lower end models and now offer metal bodies. You can tell the difference by the trademarks. The Proline (high end) have laser etched trademarks, so they appear metallic (from the aluminum receiver). The Sportsline has engraved trademarks. If it's one of the Sportsline models, then you're still getting a fair price if the gun is in excellent condition. Usually the plastic Sportsline models sell in that price range new.

If that's what this gun is

Well he said its full metal, so one would assume its the Proline.

Yup. Sportsline have metal body versions. The trademarks are the way to tell which it is at a glance.

Either way, make sure you get someone to check out the internal parts. Like it was said, those are what really matters, when it comes down to the line, and you wouldn't want your new toy to end up needing 200$ in repairs right off the bat, if you're runing on a budget. It may have a metal body, or it may have a plastic body, but where it matters is the quality and durability of the internal mechanisms.

The CA I used to own chrono'd at something pathetic like 220 fps or thereabouts. Had to get a bunch of upgrades done to the internals.

Still, for $350 plus mags you ought to be able to afford to sink some money into getting it tuned up.
