Need some help for a newbie
« on: October 18, 2011, 05:46:20 pm »
Hi all,

this is my first post and im just wanting some advice.
Below is a link to a gun that i personally think will suit
me when i recieve my licence, however because im
new to this im not sure if its any good. It has 5 likes
but no reviews.

http://www.rsov.com/product.php?langId=1&currencyId=4&manufacturerId=10&prodId=3498&cateId=62

If you guys could tell me if:

a) it is a good gun for the price, and if it reliable enough
b) what gun is good for a beginner, I really would like an
     M4 or gun like that


Any help is greatly appreciated,

BullyBoii

I have no knowledge of the AEG in your link so I can't really comment. What I will say is that if you are on the UKARA database, there's little point in buying guns from china. You wait ages and don't necessarily save any money if customs get their claws on it.

If you're after a good value Armalite go for something like this:

I know a couple of people who use these and they're excellent for how little you pay. For a bit more cash you can get the electric blowback version.

Thanks or the quick replies.

I was just wondering if there is any differences, performance orientated, between metal and plastic guns. Also wouldn't plastic guns take an absolute battering and only last a few skirmishes and is this something i should be looking into. I'm hoping that this gun will last me a good six months or so.

Plastic is fine, it's very robust and can take a hell of a lot of abuse. Metal is heavier.

Performance is dependant on gearbox/hop unit/barrel

Sounds like you've tested this theory!

Thanks all for the great advice. Can't wait to get this (after I get my licence - I'm not one for brightly coloured guns). I'll hopefully see you all at DV.

I was looking at some videos one YouTube of skirmishes from DV and they look really fun.

Thanks for all your help.  If you have anymore suggestions please keep them coming I could use all the help I cam get.

Hi mate,

Just read your last post, have you been to any skirmish site yet?

If not, come along to a skirmish day and rent a gun.  See if you're going to like it before buying loads of gear. The other thing coming to a game will do is give you a chance to meet some regular players (we are a friendly bunch honest!!). You can then also quiz them on their choice of weapons before you decide what to buy.

All the above obviously relies on you being old enough to cone along of course.

While it's not technically a "license", I myself call it that because it performs a similar job to one i.e. allows you to buy non-two-tone airsoft guns.
Agree with Fash. Rent a gun to give you a taste of what a good airsoft gun can do, then start to consider what you want to buy.
At the end of the day, all airsoft technology is the same, so it's all about what gun looks the prettiest in your eyes!

To be honest I've seen a lot of people ditch metal guns in favour of plastic ones, and the G&G combat machines are fantastic for thier price. You would be better off renting though

Don't forget you will have to attend a registered skirmish site (which DV is) on three occasions in no less than two months before you become eligible for UKARA registration.

Best thing, come down and play a few games with our rental AK-74s.  Take the time to take a look at other people's shiny kit and use the opportunity to work out what you want.

I should be starting sometime in november, me and my mate are coming down to have a go,
we both grew tired of paintballing because its nothing like the real thing and we thought this would be better
which by the looks of it, it is

Hopefully going to get a licence before christmas, and i would definatley be renting a gun and Ammo, and maybe a bit of kit
if i need to

Youll soon see me down at Dragon Valley, and you cant miss me, im the tallest and skinniest runt youll have ever seen

Just looked at your profile.  Unfortunately you won't qualify for UKARA registration until you're 18.
