None of the clones are great but I hear that TSD has good QC. You're going to have to get your hands greasy with cleaning and readjusting the internals in any case, so I would personally just get the cheapest platform you can find and do some work on your own.

You'll want to spend whatever you have left after the rifle and scope (bipod is optional) on a trip to ace hardware. Here's a small list for you: Silicone spray, krylon camo paint (tan, olive drab, and brown), teflon tape, car polish, brasso, and a roll of electrical tape.

Use the camo paint to break up your rifle's outline (just do a mottled scheme if you want, it doesn't have to be fancy).

Next, follow this guide to cleaning/brasso'ing/polishing your barrel. It'll improve your grouping on the stock barrel immensely: http://airsoftsniper.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=repairs&action=display&thread=849&page=1

Then, teflon up the cylinder head and barrel/bucking joint. The stock barrel/hop up unit is a bitch to disassemble, if you can't manage it just teflon the area between the end of the hop up unit and the barrel.

Finally, replace or add on to the stock spacers by wrapping electrical tape around your inner barrel so that it fits snug with the inside of the outer barrel. Do this at perhaps 4 spots along the barrel, and if you have trouble fitting the inner barrel assembly back in afterward, spray it with silicone and try again.

Cheap, easy mods to improve your effectiveness on the field as much as 2x over. If you need help send me a PM
