Sup men, while I can't wait for this delectable piece of machinery to be released stateside, Ive been thinking up some sweet configurations for it that Id like. BUT, id like to know what you men think is the nicest! This is mainly for sights/scopes. ALSO, I was wondering if its coming in one magpul color (black) or more like tan, OD, foliage, etc.
I probably won't be using this guy in the outdoor fields because of its small mags, and practicality. Leave your ideas in the reply's!

ALSO if you have any better(cheaper) shops to get this stuff at, greatly appreciated

1st. 4x32 ACOG in black, with epic flashlight, black MVG, and Madbull Noveske amplifier. (Everything but the sight will be the same for each config.)
http://airsoft-club....mmy-fiber-cable
2nd. Holo with magnifier " "
http://airsoft-club....p-to-side-mount
http://airsoft-club....eflex-dot-sight
3rd. M3 or M2 type aimpoint. Not sure what the major difference is between both. " "

Regarding the color, the only plans are for black at the moment.

Personally, I would go with the eotech without a magnifier. If you're going to be using it mainly inside then all magnification will do is make it harder to aim quickly and IMHO I think eotech's are some of the coolest looking scopes you can get.

Nice nice, sounds good, which model would you guys recommend, and what do you guys think of the other stuff I would put on the LM4?

Id reccomend a surefire or a nice weaponlight for cqb. Maybe a vert grip of your choice if you want, other than that, doesnt need much else. Personally the only thing id run would be an aimpoint t1 micro, m2 comp, or Eotech varient, and a weapon light. Wouldnt need any magnifiers or anything of that sort for indoors, and airsoft acogs (and acogs in general) dont have the best eye relief, let alone trying to use a magnified optic inside... my $0.02

If you have the money the Rico Alpha 9 weapon light is really nice.

been there done that with the grip/lights, adds too much weight really, and most of them aren't that stable. Rather just have a MVG with a light attached on the right of the hand guard, with a Magpul rail attachment. Surefire's are a little expensive for me.
I posted something but apparently it didn't post or something.
What would be better really, a aim point or a holo?
And what model of each would you guys recommend?
Aimpoints are a little cheaper than holo's.
But what would be the pro's and con's of each?

Well, personally i prefer the aimpoint, its lighter, generally sturdier, and most often than not doesnt have issues with ghosting or reflective "mirror" lenses. That being said, Eotechs give you a larger sight picture and i think are a little more asthetically pleasing (my opinion). The thing with Eotechs on airsoft is that to get a decent one you'll need to spend a bit more for a quiality replica as apposed to an aimpoint, such as the G&P one which is like $45-$55 or so.

Another thing to consider is that Aimpoints can sit up higher with a cantilever/mk18 mount, or similar mount, making them easier to use with goggles and masks and whatnot without the use of a riser.

Another thing to consider is the recoil of the gbbr you'll be putting it on. In my mind  the aimpoint would more likely be able to stand up the the prolonged use on a GBBR, though it depends on the quality. Though real Eotechs dont have many of those issues, i assume your talking about replica optics.

You can find surefire replicas that in some cases are just as bright as their real counterparts, but cost 1/2 the price or less.

Thank you for your input, I appreciate it greatly.
As for the replica Surefire's, I don't really know where to get them...

AND yes, Im referring to replica optics, like the ones I put the links to in the original post

I'd recommend an EoTech. I am a huge fan of them. It is true that you have to pay a lot of money to get a good EoTech while it costs less to purchase a good Aimpoint model. Again, I recommend EoTech because they are not only aesthetically pleasing but are also excellent at what they do. Acquiring a target is very easy and quick with a holosight. However, because this is a GBBR, you will have to worry about recoil and its effect on the sight over a long period of time. In this case, I would recommend purchasing a real steel gun sight. You have an expensive gun, why not dress it accordingly?

If you can, I would purchase a real Surefire flashlight. I have a couple and they are well worth the money. You can find good deals on eBay or at online retailers right about now.

Perhaps consider the MVG or a Tango Down vertical grip. I love my Tango Down and wouldn't trade it for anything else.

I am a proponent of buying quality over quantity. If you buy something good to begin with, you won't have to worry about replacing it or fixing it.

Anything with fiberoptic + tritium will be very expensive, not sure how much that particular model is, but a Trijicon with magnification is well over 1 grand.

Trijicon Amber dot sight? Also, what gun is it on in the pic? Looks to me a Magpul-ed gun, but maybe the LM4? =)
