PostSubject: CA M15a4 upgrades???   Mon Feb 28, 2011 9:43 am

Bought it from ebay 3-4 years ago. As far as I know its stock.

External parts:
A) What optics would be better for where we play? Red dot, holographic, or some kind of ACOG w/magnification?
B) I'm planning on grabbing an RIS kit soon.

Internal parts:
C) I'm sure my spring is worn out from all the time its been used/stored. Same for the battery. What kind of spring would be good to get. I think my gun has the version 2 gearbox w/upgraded internals.
D) As far as the battery goes, I want to get a nunchuck battery to go in the foregrip (plus buy a smart charger/discharger). What voltage and mah capacity?
E) Tight bore barrels? I'm noob to this stuff so I don't know how much of an impact they have on performance.

Ideally I want this gun to be as accurate as possible. I don't mind a slow rate of fire; In fact I would prefer a slower RoF for realism.

For the optics a red dot is the way to go. You don't want anything more than 2x magnification if you must have some zoom.

I would suggest an Intellect 8.4V or 9.6V battery from GI or a similar place:

I personally have this charger:
http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_74&products_id=3358
It's hard to find, but well worth it.

For an AEG I would suggest a 6.03 mm diameter inner barrel. To be blunt, the more you pay for it, the more accuracy you get. Brands wise you have some choices: Madbull being low end, Prometheus being mid-range, and PDI being high-end. There's a few other brands out there, but I don't know them so I won't discuss them.

Like victor said, just go with a red dot. Cheaper is usually worth it. Magnification is usually unnecessary, but 2x can prove handy for 200+ ft shots.

Only bother with an RIS kit if you plan on mounting things that go on an RIS (IE flashlights, lasers, foregrips, etc).

You probably want an M120 spring (which shoots 0.2g BBs at about 400 FPS).

I have this red dot and it works beautifully.. comes with a spare battery if you forget to turn it off.

I would strongly suggest attaching a piece of plexiglass to the front of any sight you get. Glass tends to break when it gets shot..

Yes Atlanta is pretty good shipping time wise and they are average on price. Airsoft Retreat has reviews and a lot of information in their forums and reviews section.
