Hi guys,

Iím currently researching AEGs in preparation for when I get my UKARA. Iíd love an MP5 but Iím worried that other (typically M4/M16 carrying) players would outrange me at my local woodland sites.

Therefore, Iíve also been looking at rifles. Now, I know that the Classic Army M4 sportline is a budget/beginners gun and would therefore not perform as well as higher quality guns but would it be good enough to start out with for 6 months or so? I have read some good reviews of it, but have also read that the motor has lots of problems.

As it stands Iím currently thinking:

Decent ICS MP5 for £200


CA M4 sportline for £100

Obviously, having a longer barrel at half the price the CA is looking quite attractive. Money saved could be used for extra batteries and mags, maybe a few accessories, etc. Maybe Iím over-thinking this?!

Or should I just sell a lung and get a TM? ;)
