Hi

I'm really having difficulty deciding what to use as a primary weapon. I need everyone's help.

One thing I'm sure of... IT HAS TO BE KWA. And it has to shoot 400-450fps, with .25 bbs (no more, no less)

I live in Sacramento, CA so I really have no issues with temperatures dropping down and making any GBB useless.

If modifications are to be made, is there a reliable website where I can send whatever gun I decide to get to be modified?

What modifications can I do to each of the following to meet my specs...

1. MP7
2. LM4
3. SR10 (when available)

Thanks for the help.

Just a heads up, this kind of post belongs in the community general chat section.

As for your question: I have not used an SR10 but from what I understand it's a very good rifle.

I have had the MP7 for over 2 years and it's amazing. The stock bolt causes it to shoot well in your range of FPS, and in my experience with all stock internals it has about 200 ft range with .25's, a little less with .30's but the consistency is nicer. Upgraded barrels and buckings etc. will probably make it even better.

I have had the LM4 for about 5 months now, and after all that time I've only just now got it working how I want it. I have yet to field it with my latest fix but it seemed to get similar range to the MP7. The downside here is that I had to mess with the internals quite a bit just to get it working right, however it is just a complete joy to shoot every single time. It shoots about 380-400 with .20g's, and approximately 350 with .30g's (same power as a .20g at 430) so it has plenty of 'ouch' factor.

Ultimately pick the platform you like best in your hands, since all of them are easily upgraded and can all achieve similar performance. Personally I just hate the way an AEG feels now since there's no feedback and no bolt functions etc. but I leave that to you to decide. Good luck!

LM4's are expensive in the long run (Gas and mags), and MP7's are expensive in the long run just like the LM4. The SR10's gonna have better range and accuracy over the mp7 and possibly LM4. The MP7 is also a bit to rickady for my liking. I'd go with an SR10 personally, with a KWA m130 spring, an Edgi 6.01 tbb, and if you're gonna be trigger happy, get a spare piston, or upgrade it. Although KWA pistons are great, they're are some that have been reported and tested and have come out to be better.

Much of this also depends on what "experience" you want when firing the gun.  A somewhat realistic "bam bam bam" with the GBB or a toy "squee squee squee" with the AEG.

Do you want 30-40 round magazine capacity or 350?

Do you want to carry lots of very heavy magazines (GBB)?  LM4 magazines are heavier empty than M16 magazines are full!

I get about 390fps from my LM4 with 0.32g BBs and the LEO bolt.  Will be faster with 0.25 but I don't have the data.  I've not pushed my AEGs above stock which is well under your goal.  Heavier BBs carry further and are less affected by crosswinds.
