Title: Reliable site
Post by: Matt608 on October 01, 2006, 05:51:21 pm
hi, im new 2 airsift, but im not just sum common tube noob whos asking stupid questions with out doing any reading 2 c if their answer is already out there..

Anyway, i want to buy my first AEG and i found the following website

http://www.geniestuff.co.uk/htdocs/part-metal-heavyweight-m4a1e.htm

That seems almost too gd 2 b tru i thought,as im not looking to start of with a gun costing more than ?100, which i know is very limiting.

But is that site reliable? does any1 know if it has a gd/bad repututaion? and also is there something about the gun that i have overlook/not understood which actualy makes it ovbious y it is so cheap?

the other thing is i couldnt seem 2 find the brand ofthe gun....which is a bit worring as if it was good surly the site would be boasting about it....

Thanks, looking 4ward 2 reading ur words of wisdom :)

read this post. Its About Geniestuff.co.uk http://www.dragonvalley.co.uk/php/smf/index.php?topic=356.0
looks aload of common tat.
To Be honest, i Would Get A Glock 18c, with some mags and a battery for just over 100 quid. http://www.wolfarmouries.co.uk/airsoft/bb/product.asp?page=product&id=41SMGG18CHWKSC

Well it all looks like a load off pants. Reading some of the guns descriptions they refer to them as airsoft guns, not bb guns. How dare them! That company is no where near elitist enough to be allowed to use the word airsoft!


So Soz Dude, I Wouldnt Buy There,

 :( o wel, thans alot, im relieved realy, my friend rushed in and has allready orderd from that site with our realy researching...

i have 1 more query however

http://www.gizmos-uk.com/BE%20Steyr%20AUG.html?PHPSESSID=6a5af28e886e55ffb749e8d5ad246a56

That is another 'cheap' AEG, but is again is there something im over looking?

The only things i can see wring with it is the low fpw (190) and i read on another forum that that website can be unreliable....but im willing to take that risk for an AUG of taht price!!

What do u think? :)

PRO'S


Affordable (usually around $80-$100)
Tokyo Marui compatible (mags, barrels, upgrades, etc.)
Decent accuracy
Very good ROF (about 17-18 RPS on full charged stock battery)
Shoots faster than Tokyo Marui counterpart (mine does 330-350 FPS)
Very comfortable to shoulder (Rubber butt plate)
Upgradeable (has metal V3 Gearbox)
Effective range is more than 120 ft. (130 ft. is pushing it)
Hi-cap magazine feeds flawlessly and is reliable
Field strips just like the real steel AUG
Decent stock battery (9.6 volt 1200 mAh Ni-mh)


CON'S


Too much plastic
Somewhat back-heavy
Only external metal parts are the sling mounts
Foregrip not very durable/sturdy
Fake scope doesn't even have crosshairs
Many visible screw holes (most of them are on the right side of the gun)
No trademarks (hey, it was made in China, what did you expect?)
A little too shiny for my tastes (Krylon or similar flat spray paint fixes this)
Plastic quality isn't the best, but it is not the worst, either
Visible seam lines

Looks a bag of spoons to me. Maybe you should be looking at a second hand AEG? Some bargains to be had that way.

SUTA have the right idea. They have t-shirts that say" SUTA - I spent my student loan on guns".

How much did that AK47 we use as an extra rental gun cost? That was quite a good bargain as I recollect, and seems reliable.

If I was you mate, I would save up and get the tm mp7  :D

Amazing rof and range out of the box  :) alrite ill admit its like 160-170 quid but its worth it  :D

Dont even bother with all these cheap ripoffs as they will break rather quickly  :o

Anyway just my say  :D

i know its not of much use but i bout the AIM M4A1 from airsoft scotland and its a decent gun for the ?100 mark and doesnt need any upgrades either clockin over 300 outa the box on 0.2s
and it comes with a 300 hi cap too :)
http://www.airsoftscotland.com/acatalog/Assault_Rifles.html

items 9 and 10

9 being the deal with a bat and charger

10 being just the gun

I bought this for my friends to use if they went and have used it many a time myself its so much fun with a 9.6v battery in
