Heres some simple things I did to improve the stock look of my M4. Feel free to add to the list. This could be good for those people who want to make there guns look better without spending a lot of money.

Pictures are blurry because my camera is very sensitive to movement when the flash isn't on.

First Mod. Crayoned Safe, Semi, and Auto.





Red and white Crayola crayons can go far. To do this just color in the spaces have a wet towel ready to wipe of the excess wax.

Chopped carrying handle.





This can be done with a hack saw. I used a saw that is only made to cut PVC pipe to cut the plastic part that attaches to the rail. I used a wire stripper (lol) to dig into the metal part and soon after a lot of bending it broke of. I'll have to paint the white part of it showing but it isn't to noticeable.

Okay, mine costs some money($27.99) but makes the rifle look a lot better.

Buy a daisy scope at walmart. Very pretty(my avi)

I would like to suggest some high rise scope mounts, so you can see past the carrying handle. Or just get a flip up front site.

The thing sticking up at the front of the gun is the front sight.
Also, the scope focuses the sight out of the picture, comepletely invisible.

I just realized I said the carrying handle lol. It just looks a bit out of place so close to the gun like that.

Just get a AIMPOINT. Scopes are pretty much useless on a gun that shoots less that 450fps. Unless your spotting.

Wow, something as simple as crayola crayons look nice. Did you just color in the words or melt the crayons first?

Nicely done. I thought that "safe" was supposed to be red, and the others white, however? I do like the look of that rear sight, although I would hate to ruin the carrying handle... Good job though. Have you done any strengthening mods? I came up with a mod to strengthen the plastic on the receiver that I posted in the A&K review, for those that are interested...

I hate that rear sight now. I saw a movie and some guy had a ACOG mounted to his carrying handle and it looked so nice. Now I have to buy another one.
