I think something that takes a large battery and has alot of after market parts available for it like an M4/M16 or AK47 with a full stock for the battery. But thats just my opinion on a frist AEG.

check out the Ontario games section, get out to a game, you will be able to look at the different types of guns and maybe even get age verified there.

Forget specific makes/brands/models...

Get out to games and try to handle as many different ones as you can. Be polite, don't be a drooling goof...and guys will usually be ok with showing you what they have and pros/cons.

It's a long drive...but if you can make the CQB event on the 31st, there'll be tons of guns/gear/etc...there and this one is geared towards newcomers.

A "cheaper" AEG might be just fine so far as you're concerned...or you may find it completely unacceptable. Same with pistols, gear, accessories, etc.... There's places to save a couple of bucks...and there's places where it's not worth buying clone of a clone of a clone to save money.

A chance to get hands on without test buying stuff is worth a lot of money (either saved or spent).

Those two guns are great starter guns, I have heard but I would recommend buying from some other retailer....buyairsoft.ca is not a very good place to buy from.

My frist gun was a M16 A2 and Im 5'9 and I found it to long and cumbersome to handle. But thats just me agian. So I ended up with an M4.

Look into getting Age verified. Go back into the Newbie Tank and look at the stickies near the top of the postings, and you will be able to access guns from our classifieds here, as well as reputable retailers. How old are you by the way?

you can't really ask which gun we suggest IMO ... You can fall in love with mp5 and upgrade it crazily. Depends which gun you like, really. Most people prefer m4 or ak because they are the most shown and known.

That really depends more on manufacturers than anything else. Generally:

-Anything with a version 2 or version 3 mechbox is going to have the most upgrade/aftermarket parts available.

-The more expensive the gun, the better luck you'll have with fitment of aftermarket parts.

-Also, generally, the more expensive the gun, the better.

Your best bet is to get out to a game and ask to handle some peoples' airsoft guns. Find out what you're most comfortable with.
