In one video by KWA talking about the LM4 for training, they said it will take real steel parts like different stocks and not just the regular every day m4 style stock
Yeah it should be equipped with a mil-spec buffer tube, which will allow for it to be interchangeable with a lot of stocks. But were going to have to wait to make sure.

Along with this, we could assume that grips are interchangeable (magpul grip on LM4), and I heard somewhere buffer tube springs could be switched out for real steel- but until we have them in our hands it is all speculation.

Yea, I would hold off on the buffer tube spring if I were you....

For some reason, it sounds like a bad idea to put the real steel in the airsoft LM4. But worth a try..!

Real buffer spring would probably make the gun short stroke, and the bolt catch wouldn't  engage. A little bit of Green Gas expanding isn't gonna create the explosive force of a .223. ;)

No , it probably will cycle all the way back. There has been a few people put real buffer springs in the WA GBBR rifles and they cycled fine. And I believe there will be even more force to push the spring back in the LM4's. But I don't recommend it as it will slam forward with a lot of force and will beat the crap out of the rifle.

They were probably running Red Gas.

Jay's right. I've even seen people put real steel buffer springs in their G&P wocs and run green gas and the gun cycles just fine.

Speaking of Red Gas, anyone know where to find it?

In the Airsoftology vid with the LM4 SR7, the guy said he "puts red gas in some of the gas blowbacks, but nothing compares to the recoil of the lm4. To me it feels harder than a .22."
So I'm sure the recoil on the lm4 with green gas should be quite satisfactory- enough so that there will be no need for red gas.

There is a difference between the felt recoil and the recoil that is recoiling the bolt.

PTS or RS Magpul accessories? I want the shorter barrel of the LM4C, but the body of the Magpul...

RS of course! I don't want the PTS shtuff breaking on me... And I agree, the magpul receiver looks amazing... But, I must side for the LM4c, because I don't feel like paying for PTS parts.

If I get tired of the PTS parts Il just try and sell em, then probably buy a decent rail and a CTR stock. I don't like the way ACS stocks look on carbines

True. You save $100 by getting the LM4C, but don't get the Magpul body... Which to choose, which to choose...

Eh, I'm going to stick with the Magpul LM4 and end up selling the grip, hand guard, and stock (and buffer tube). Put on my Magpul UBR stock, a MOE+ grip, and a CASV-M. I want to have those parts in FDE, but already have the black stock and CASV. First world problems...

I'm thinking to myself- "I don't need a Magpul body version. If I ever feel the need to hold one, I could always hold aaps59's LM4 magpul edition gun."
