the AUG is comfy like a pillow, the AK is comfy like a cinderblock
does that help?

A pretty cinderblock.

But yes, it helps.

Plus, I would like to move into sniping once my aim improves with experience, and the AUG will probably lend itself better to that than the AK.

Problem solved.

Thank you sir.

Because the AUG has always been known for being purdy in the A1/A2 class :P

Dont fret too much over this, as throughout your airsoft career you will have plenty of time you own/play/handle a slew of guns.

I think my AUG is purdy...
i have a civilian reciever with the rail, and the military body in OD, so mine is super purdy, I'd prefer the military version though, with the built in scope

I miss my aug, was really comfy but imo ugly, and I found it hardish to run with, though that's probably just me. Go for the aug as they are the hardest to find, you can olways sell it and buy an Ak or M4 down the road.

You have to get yourself a set of balled metric allen keys... and be a bit more gentle while putting the screws back in!

The whole front end missed the stock screw holes and was force-threaded into the plastic, and 2 of the gearbox screws were completely stripped, I had to slot them with a dremal!!

hey toasties,
i've been gaming my tm aug a2 for about 3 months now. shoots HARD, even though its only about 290 fps. but i have left some MEAN welts on people. It's a little back heavy but its balanced out nicely. There are a ton of upgrades out there for it, but the lack of a rail system does get a little annoying. The only way to really get the rail system is to upgrade the entire front system which can run you a good 200$. In my personal opinion, you may want to go with the A2 version, the scope on the A1 does give 1.5x but its tiny. The A2 allows you to get any scope you want.

Lets take a moment to review some simple facts on all of the listed AEGs.

The M4 uses a version 2 while the AK and the AUG use a version 3 mechboxes.
Both version 2 and 3 mechboxes share many similar parts so sourcing upgrades and downgrades should not be an issue.

Many have stated that a version 3 is more robust when it comes to durability when compared to the V2. I somewhat agree with that statement, however I feel that a well maintained version 2 would last just as long.

When it comes to FPS out of the box, TM is lower due to the fact that TM is Japanese made and in Japan airsoft has an FPS restriction. Springs cost only a few dollars and spring changes are not that hard to do.

Lets talk about the pros and cons about each AEG.

M4 Pro's
Easy to source external upgrades and accessories
Battery can be stored in the front or back depending on your preference
With a little work the M4 can physically upgraded and changed to perform with nearly any circumstance, be it CQB, DMR, rifle man etc.

Cons
Most M4s being sold on the market today suffer from barrel wobble. This is when the front end of your gun wobbles slightly. This Con can be fixed with a metal body and 1 piece outer barrel upgrade.
Broken Tabs, even though most plastic receivers being produced today have reinforced tabs, these tabs can still break.
Annoying disassembly, way to many parts to deal with to fully take the gun apart.

AK Pros
External upgrades are easy to acquire
With a little work the AK can physically and internally upgraded and changed to perform with nearly any circumstance, be it CQB, DMR, rifle man etc.
Wood kits add a very realistic feel to your AEG.
Your battery can be stored on the top of your gun or if you wish you can opt for a rear wiring and store a larger battery in the stock.
A decent assortment of external upgrades and accessories

AK cons
AK disassembly can be just as annoying as M4 disassembly if not more, however this comment only reflects my opinion on the subject.

Aug Pros
Due to its bull pup design the mechbox is seated further back in the body of the gun allowing to have a longer inner barrel.
Easy disassembly, you remove your back plate, pop out a screw and your mechbox pretty much just falls out the back of the gun. Easy access

Aug Cons
Limited external upgrades, dont get me wrong, there are still a quiet a few addons and accessories out there to give your Aug a little more spice. There are just not as many as there would be for an armalite or an AK.
Limited battery space, from what I understand the spacing for battery storage in the aug is limited, possibly limiting the user to mini batteries only. Now I am not entirely sure on the topic but there maybe a way to house a larger battery but I cannot envision it simply going off my memory right now. If I am wrong on the subject someone please correct me.

Now although my lists are thin, I believe I have provided you with enough details to make your own decision.
