Snow Wolf/Javelin M24 Build help!

Hi everyone,
I'm pretty new to the airsoft world and am starting out with a sniper rifle
I have plans of upgrading the gun once I receive it as planned (in order)

EDIT: This seems to be my final build guide
- Snow Wolf M24 = $130
- PDI Snow Wolf M24 Hopup Chamber ~ $85 shipped
- Falcon Snow Wolf M24 silencer adaptor = $22
- 140mm Silencer = $16 shipped
- ASGI 3-4x40 Scope = $19
- Systema Hop up bucking = $6
- Madbull 6.03mm TBB = $30
- Modify 7mm Spring Guide = $20
- King Arms Reinforced APS2 Piston = $33
- Guarder Piston Head = $10
- Laylax 150sp Spring = $18
Total: ~$389

Not gonna replace these sears until the stock ones wear out:
- Laylax PSS2 Trigger Sear = $20
- Laylax PSS2 Piston Sear = $33
Total: ~$442

Is it essential to replace the stock cylinder/cylinder head? Because I am having a hard time finding one for this gun, maybe due to just being a newbie and not looking in the right places-_-

I do have a budget of around +/- $400 so money is a big factor:/

Please, any and all advice/comments are accepted!

In regards to your scope... There are many different types and ranges in price. On an airsoft sniper rifle you do not want to go too expensive, or you could end up dropping a lot of money where you should be upgrading the gun instead. I'll break down some parts for you quick...

First part of the scope you will see a few numbers with a multiplier rate like 3x30 or a range of numbers and a multiplier like 3-9x30, etc. The first number(s) before the 'x' are the zoom. I.e. a 3x30 would denote 3 times zoom, whereas 3-9x30 would denote being able to zoom from 3 up to 9 times zoom with the use of a wheel similar to a focusing a camera.

The second number after the 'x' will be the lens size. The larger the size, the more you can see without moving the scope around. I find that anything above 42mm is unnecessary. I also feel that it adds to the possibility of lens glare that an enemy can see. Personal preference, I prefer 40mm, but that is me.

Going back to the different kinds of scopes, another modifier is illuminated or non-illuminated. The illumination factor basically puts a back-light on your cross-hair. This is useful in low-light situations where your cross-hair is indistinguishable with the target or its background. Being in the USAF, one thing I learned is "It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it." So I have it on my gun, but rarely have practical application to use it. Up to your choice!

Also, a good idea is to pick out a scope with a sunshade to protect from lens glare flashing your position to your enemy AND keep the sun glare out of your eyes.

If you want a cheap starter scope this would be perfect. Has everything you need at a very low price. Also, NC Star makes pretty good quality stuff, in my opinion.
I personally use this and enjoy it very much. For the price it does it's job... Two-color illumination (blue and green, listed incorrectly as red and green on the site), sunshade, 3-9 times zoom, and it even comes with a bungee corded lens protector.

Hope this helps!
