If you consider yourself a mechanically inclined person I would still consider used eventually. Coming from a crossbow factory, I found airsoft very easy to work on. I scratch built my M4 and it's running solid after 15k rounds this season. Many others on here have far exceeded this I'm sure!

Thanks everyone!

Lots of very useful information here that I've saved for future reference, and I do hope that this helps out other newer airsoft players as well.

In terms of what I actually did, I purchased a new rifle, and now I'm a happy owner of a new ICS CXP 08 Sportsline

Step 1. Test gun. Test fire several shots. A chrono/pop can chrono test will give you a rough idea of FPS. If it is low, run. If it is high that may mean an upgraded spring, on stock internals, it could blow the gun up.

Step .2 PAINT. AVOID IT. Unless they are professional painters, you should run the fuck away from paint. All it takes is a bad miss spray an you got paint somewhere it shouldn't be.

Step 3. Extras. Take the value of the gun, new, and knock off 30%. Then do the same with the accessories. Accessories can make guns look more expensive then they are.
