Get a simple, barebones KWA M4, and build from there. Try introducing your kid to the "pimpmygun" program. If you google "pimpmygun" you will find a link to a program that can be easily used to prospect a custom weapon you want (program was designed by an airsoft player). Have your kid get on the program, load up a stock M4, and have him customize it himself. Almost priomise he will spend a few hours making cool looking weapons, even goofy ones just to see how funny he can make a gun look Once he has made the M4 he wants, look up the parts online. See how much it would cost to do that to a KWA M4. In the end, I would take him to AirDog. Have him hold the JGs and the other brands, then have him hold the KWA. He will be able to feel the quality difference just holding it. And yes, AirDog will allow you to go hands on with their merchandise.
Also, you can post website names and such.
Hey sorry for the delay. Spent the day yesterday with my daughter. Love that she's almost 24 and would rather spend her off day with the 'old man' than getting 'faced' (like so many do). Doesn't hurt that we went and toasted off a few rounds.
Hey I *love* the idea of running to AirDog and having a 'hands on' session. This is my biggest problem with his shopping ONLY on airsoftmegastore.com. Not being able to put hands on anything. SURE if you know what you want, you've seen it elsewhere and the price REALLY justifies shopping online then fine. But I've found (say with this JG for instance) that local stores are in the same pricepoint ($150 for the bare gun) as airsoftmegastore.
As I mentioned, he's more like "I want everything all at once". Why I have NO FREAKING IDEA!!! It's not like we/he wouldn't get his entire loadout list fairly soon anyhow. Would more likely than not outfit the gun RE holosight, grip, light, etc. then and there no matter what.
I'm going to see if I can't get him to "pimpmygun" for snits-n-giggles and see what happens.
