Note though for a good quality full metal gun you're looking at $600, and that doesn't include batteries, magazines, or anything else.*

*Occaisionally you can find a deal in the classifieds for a used AEG with all the above mentioned accessories for a good price.

Cheap is a word you will have to unlearn.

600 is about as low as a G&P can go. used. I should add; there is no term such as "cheap AND cheerful" in life... There's "pricey and cheerful", and "cheap and horrible"

He meant the latter of the mags and batteries. A few good batteries will last you a lifetime. With that you should also buy a good charger it's like putting bronze fuel in a car meant for gold fuel. A smart charger will go a long way and should eventually pay for itself by not ruining your batteries.

All together you're probably looking at spending around $600-700 if you can find the right deals and are willing to wait. I got all my gear for about $650 (things such as boots, gloves and things that normal people should have are excluded).

If you want some tacticool army boots or something rather than using your current pair of hiking boots be my guest but that just adds on extra to your setup.

I'll give you a quote of what I've spent, I've listed it in some other thread but I'm too lazy to search back through all my posts so here's an estimate:

Gun (M4, also came with a Red Dot Scope and battery): $450
Mags (5x real-cap): $30
BDU's (Sourced from local surplus store): ~$50
Vest (clone found from classifieds): $90
Rifle Case (cheap "Flambeau" branded case from Canadian Tire): $20

So all in all you can see that everything that I have totaled up to about $650 excluding boots, shooting glasses, gloves, and other such stuff that can be found around your house.

Thanks so much L472ncy! I got BDU's boonies and such(could use some boots though) All I need is a gun, mags and batteries and a smart charger, where could I find that charger? I got a local hobbie shop by my place selling mostly RC cars.

just fire a couple rounds in semi auto to do that. if you let go of the trigger half way through the cycle when in fully automatic it can leave the piston partialy pulled back and ruin the spring.
