Gun accessories, what would you buy?

Hi guys, need your help on a cost \ effective survey.
When it comes to accessorising your gun (buttstocks, foregrips, charging handles etc) what would you buy?

1. High end real steel brand names - such as Magpul dynamics, A.R.M.S, Knight armament etc.
2. Low cost real steel brand names - such as UTG, GG&G etc
3. High end airsoft products such as the Magpul PTS line.
4. China made copies

If you can add your personal opinion on the subject or why you would buy x insted of y, that would be great. If you don't feel like it, just answer with the number most suitable to what you would usually buy.

Thanks in advance
Omer

China made copies for things like fore grip, iron sights, silencers and all the stuff that doesnt really affect performances...
high end airsoft products for stocks, rails and things that would bother you if they were loose..

real steel for optics if budget is ok with it!

I run GBBRs most accessories are a mix of high and low end real steel parts, but I do use the high end airsoft parts when its cost effective. And if its a part that is just for looks and not effecting performance-- such as rail covers, suppressors are A.C.M

I have never seen a RS part worth the money to put on an airsoft gun, lots of cheap airsoft parts that fit and function just fine, and in some cases I've seen people put RS furniture on just to have RS furniture, when the original airsoft parts looked and fit much nicer

even with optics, $500 RS eotech or a $50 clone that works SLIGHLTY worse? you freaking bet im going for the cheap one

Depends what. I run GBBRs so it's a mix of RS, high end airsoft parts and cheap ACM knockoffs.

e.g.: pistol grips need to be RS (and they just feel so much better), stocks I have a RS Magpul CTR (not the PTS one), an ACM UBR (which fits better on WE than the PTS one and costs a fraction of the RS one) and I have a couple of Element LMT Cranes, which are fine for what they are. RIS/RAS handguards, I use the high end (Madbull) versions: they're good value for the money and the rails are the right size.

In some cases its cheaper using an RS part than the airsoft copy. Adding a Badger Tactical Latch, for example, or basic parts like receiver plates, stock tubes, etc.

You obviously never used a real EO...

Optics are always a good thing to get.
Rails, meh... most rails out there are good quality, even the ACM ones.
Stocks, on GBBRs YES get a real one. On an AEG, it won't make a difference, but try to avoid 20$ crane stock with buffer tube and battery...
I am using a knockoff MIAD and a real one. Both feel exactly the same, but one was 15$...

I consider an eotech to work if theres a red circle in it, and teh BBs go there, ghosting a bit and all that is to be expected in low end optics and doesnt bug me at all
and yes, I've use a RS eotech, and I didn't like it, the way the laser projects is fuzzy and not solid, and I actually prefer the more expensive clones over teh RS ones, but the cheap as hell ones do the job
these arent precision markman weapons, they dont need a 500 dollar scope in my opinion

I like the idea of realism, especially for Milsims. If you can afford it, why not get some RS parts? Personally I would rather have a few, well equiped guns, than have a whole room full of ACM stuff.
