Alright, guys, i finally got some money together, and can start on my dmr. For a base gun,
G&g sr25 or g&g m14 ebr
Siegeteck gears, tourque up.
G&p m160 motor
Edgi 6.03 tight bore barrel
Gearbox shell? I was told that g&gs did not need changing out, same for the bushings.
Ab mosfet
Prommy bucking
Ball bearing spring guide
M140-m150 spring
As well as the vindi's diy guide.
Is this a good idea, or a waste of money?

My input: get the G&G sr25. I have a m14 and she has a few parts that are proprietary (cylinder head) and is a mix match of v2 and v3. If you spend the time with it, you can get it to work. It's gb shell is a ROCK though, and it feels great to shoot. But the biggest reason to not get a m14 by G&G is that the G&G and Classic Army m14 magazines are incredibly hard to find, and expensive if you do.. Mid caps are almost non existant..

However, the SR25 is modeled in the same series as any old m4 and has a lot of upgrades and magazine options, or so I guess. Never worked with one.

I own a G&G m14, which has been problematic.. Got a m150, element high torque set, Satan 180 motor, extreme fire panther MOSFET, new wiring, piston, piston head, hopup and all. But it still has a bad spread at 220 or so feet.. Oh and I'm also for some reason burning out the motor but that's a problem with bad shimming.

I would not factor in magazine cost to determine between a GR25 and G&G M14.
Both mid cap magazines are pretty much the same cost. At times, both can be
challenging to find in stock too.

Go with the gun you like better. I love Knight's Armament rifles. I love Springfield M14's...

I have a G&G M14. It did not take much to make it accurately shoot 200 plus feet.

Though now I sit around and drool over SR25's. Currently working my way to adding a SR25 to my collection.

Honestly the EBR M14 is a very nice platform, but I find the Armalite style rifles easier for me to maneuver in the field. Guess that comes from what I am most familiar with...

Felix - I have seen a few locals drop in a ton of parts and a heavy spring into their G&G M14's and either have multiple problems or poor accuracy. I took my M14 and put a M120 spring in it, a SHS normal motor (had a torque motor installed for a short time), DYI and tweaked the internals a bit and I can easily hit a person at 200-220ft with my M14 (shooting .25's - .30's).
I am not sure why M14's are like that, but I think they are a gun that needs finesse.

Firstly,come up with a clearly defined set of goals for your build.How much power do you want?What effective range are you after?How accurate do you want it?You come up with these the next thing you have to do is take a look at the gun you intend to build.Find out its current FPS,range,and accuracy.Open up the GB and see whats under the hood.Compression test the cylinder,cylinder with nozzle installed,look for wear on the piston from bad AOE..Inspect the gears,check shimming.Go over the wire harness and trigger switch.Do all of these things to see what you have,and to see if theres any parts you could salvage for the build.,

Your goals for the build will greatly influence your parts selection(another reason to scrutinize the gun).Do the reading.Find builds on this forum and others that either match or are close to your own goals for your build.When you start getting into building and working on your own guns you will find your total airsoft time is broken down as follows:

1/3 actually playing airsoft
1/3 repairing/building guns and equiptment
1/3 research

As a dedicated marksman, I think you will use lots of time making your ghillie, diy mods, gathering veggy camo etc.
I would rather say,
1.75/4 working on guns and equipment
1/4 research
1.25/4 playing.
The playing part goes pretty low when it's winter.
Remember to get a good battery (the heart) and wiring (veins). ;)

There is no question that a particulare level of dedication is required to assume the role of a sniper.I broke it down as pretty much a baseline,that could be applied to most people who decide to become more absorbed in the hobby and take it more seriously.
