So I was thinking of upgrading a CYMA M14 with the following list. Do you guys think this is a good list and what changes would you recommend to the list? Also is the CYMA M14 a good base gun or should I go for something a little more expensive, and if so which gun would that be? It would have to fit in the budget, so with the gun someone might recommend is a better option to the CYMA M14 could you tell me which upgrades to keep and which to not buy to fit my budget? But I did a poll on Airsoft society and everyone was going with the CYMA M14 as a base gun.

PDI 190%-$19
Modify Tempered stainless 8mm bushings
Either Firefly bucking-$20.75, or Systema bucking hop packing for airsoft aeg-$6.75
regular old nub,(I hear there are different versions)-$2 or so
Prometheus Aero cylinder head for ver 6-$12
Deep fire Aluminum air nozzel-$10.10
Systema area 1000 cylinder type O-$12
Either system super core-$50, or SHS piston ver. 2/or 3-$15
Systema Energy piston head w/ball bearings- $25
Extra O rings(not sure which type)- think they are like $6 for 6
Prometheus version 2&8 spring guide w/ball bearings- $24

Not sure which high torque gear set to get so I got the ones saying they were compatible with M14,
prometheus Normal type torque gear est for ver.7 (TM M14)-$100
Prometheus high speed gear set for ver 7 (TM M14)-$100
prometheus EG double torque gear set for ver.7 (TM M14)-$100
Gate GDS-4004-AB Mosfet with active braking- $50
SHS high torque Motor(short)-$39
Modify Torus Ver.2 reinforced 8mm Gearbox w/tappet plate-$73
Element reinforced hop up seal chamber for marui type M14 series Airsoft AEG-$19
Madbull airsoft 6.01 ultimate tightbore barrel-$40

This comes out in tottal to be 466 dollars, but I need to drop a 100 dollars or so of stuff to pay for the CYMA M14. What would you say to swap out? I'm going to follow the mods on the holy grail thread to make it shoot better so I don't just do a lego build here.

Strike everything but the Spring and get a TM M14 instead. TM is a good solid brand and the internals can handle a lot. I have a AUG from TM for about 8 years and besides some tuning and a spring swap to bring it to 400FPS it hasn't need any internal work. Honestly with all the parts you want to buy you might as well get a good solid brand and not have to worry about the internals so much.

A TM M14 with the $19 spring you listed comes to $454 which is $12 less then the total for just the parts you want. Look closely at what you want to buy. You are more or less dropping a TM gearbox into a CYMA and spending more money the it would cost to just buy a TM M14

As I said on your other post making a DMR takes a lot of time and money. You're better off getting a good solid brand and slowly working towards your goal instead of getting something that won't stand the test of time as well. Remember in airsoft you really do get what you pay for.

G&G M14!

TM M14 even though a different beast internally would be my second choice.

My buddy will kill me if he ever read this post, but I have to say it.
He owns a G&P M14, and a CYMA m14, maybe two (I lost count on his guns). G&P M14 dmr is killer looking, but performs poorly in semi-auto. His CYMA's never seem to work. He even purchased a G&P mech box for his CYMA SOCOM16 and I still think he has issues.
He really likes the way my G&G M14 shoots, but won't purchase a G&G M14, because of the magazines and he already owns multiple TM based magazines. My point here is, he has multiple M14's and none of them are performing how he'd like them too. He's paid techs, tinkered with his guns etc etc and still to this day his M14's sit at home or in the car. With the money spent on everything he has, he could have a G&G M14, a few magazines and a gun that more than likely he'd be using on a regular basis.

I have seen other locals purchase a CYMA and a bunch of parts.
Their guns either have issues, or do not consistently shoot accurate.

There are a couple locals with G&G M14's. It's a love hate relationship. Some tried to completely over haul their M14's
and wonder why their 500fps shooting M14 can't hit the broad
side of a barn.

I personally find G&G M14's much easier to work on than a TM (TM based) M14. G&G M14's do have a draw back when it comes to their magazines, but you can use a standard AEG barrel and some Version 2 internals. I posted in a few places on this site what I've done to my M14. The information is out there.

Honestly in my experience there's only TWO real M14 options out there. A Tokyo Marui M14 and a G&G M14 (polymer stock, or wood, your choice). I think G&G wins in realism and looks though. *G&G in my opinion is easier to upgrade and work with too.

**to AUGer: damn good point!
