Im thinking to start playing airsoft in some local team.
I want to buy G&G FN F2000. I really like this gun. I also like SCAR-L and G36 in all variants so i cant choose.
Which gun would you recommend for 330€?
While buyng a v2 or v3 gearbox gun will give you a lot of aftermarket part options, nothing feels worse than buying something that isn't what y
While buyng a v2 or v3 gearbox gun will give you a lot of aftermarket part options, nothing feels worse than buying something that isn't what you actually wanted. Airsoft is a hobby after all, and most problems on guns can be fixed with a good will. If you REALLY want the F2000 i'd say go for it. If you don't have a clear preference for it over the other guns you mentioned, then the SCAR would be my suggestion. Look into a VFC one for an excelent quality gun.
I don't know I'm partial to the Elcan Specter DR on the F2000. pic related
Buy the VFC SCAR L. Don't get the H, the mags are pricey as fuck. Then buy extra mags, a battery, and smart charger. I also suggest midcap mags and a speed loader, since winding high caps is a pain in the ass and takes too long. I had a G36, I like it, but I prefer my SCAR L. G36 mags are fat and Umarex is making them harder to buy new.
The biggest problem with the G&G F200, to me, is the magazine fit and the giant fuck sling slots that scream "fill me with water".
Although everyone seems to be suggesting the SCAR I would not. I own a G&G SCAR-L. The Magwell is too tight for most mags that I have encountered, and frankly I am pissed with it. Not only does the finish scratch with ease, but I have managed to unseat the bottom rail by tearing the screw out. No amount of tapping and locktite will help it recover as I need to be able to remove it. Those are minor things compared to the worst part about airsoft SCARs. That would be the folding stock. I have seen 2 VFC SCAR stocks snap off and the G&G electricals are a good idea with poor execution.
The Battery connects and sits in the stock. This is accomplished by removing the length of the stock via a recessed push button located on the bottom of the stock, sticking the battery in, fishing the connectors through the stock to the butt, pulling off the butt via a pin and connecting the battery. So now you have to get the stock length back together with the rest of base. Seems simply right? Not quite. In order to have a make the stock fold, G&G put in a proprietary connector system consisting of two long free floating prongs that need to be aligned properly to fit into corresponding holes. Which is much harder to do than you think.
Sure it works, but it's really a hassle to use and maintain. Not to mention it's tedious to disassemble.
TL:DR I don't really like either, but the SCAR is annoying, so follow your heart.
ok, tnx guys... i think i'll go for scar-l
If I were to start an airsoft/paintball store of some sort, what would you like to see that you can't find?
I got a few ideas:
AT launchers are aren't $300+
mass produced AT launcher sabots
foam rockets designed specifically for AT launchers (nerf rockets are too small, the f69 is also too small and shitty)
custom patches (as if this hasn't been done enough already)
I'd also sell MREs/other packaged food for going innawoods for a weekend event or something. Anyone got other ideas of things I could have?
I had a friend make a launcher out of PVC pipe, a bike tire pump, and a simple switch.
Only went about 30 feet, but showered the area with 300+ bbs
Crossbow/recurve bow would be cool if you could figure out how to make it work.
I'm really close to getting it to work, I just need to keep the top from opening when it fires. This project was also very cheap too, only ~$40. I could also sell replacement parts for these crossbows for even less.
A regular bow for paintball has already been done, but that's expensive as fuck: http://www.airowgun.com/paint.php
People are always on the look-out for different types of camo, people here are regularly asking for different type from all around the world. If you can get a line on some like Japanese defense force uniforms those would probably be great sellers. Of course you would run into the same problem as people already looking for the stuff, hard to find in the states and hard to get it imported.
Custom patches would be cool, not only for airsoft but for costumers. I've been looking for FEAR Replica patches for awhile now and if your custom patches aren't stupidly expensive like most place I'd probably order some.
You could probably also look into second hand and repaired guns if you or someone you can get to work with you knows their repairing shit. Especially in times like this when moneys tight, people are looking for ways to save money on entertainment. Seems to be a pretty good market for cheaper used airsoft guns. Might even be able to start a repair service for airsoft owners who have guns the dun broke but haven't the know-how to repair them and don't want to root around in a 300 dollar piece of machinery and maybe cock it up worse.
Beyond that, just custom shit. Custom guns and custom uniforms that don't cost an arm and a leg. Probably wouldn't be something you'd want to get into and still make money unless you had like a 3D printer to print off custom parts or a decent sewing machine to put together custom uniforms, stuff like Stargate uniforms and STALKER suits.
Custom uniforms sound like a good idea, but the problem would be finding out how to print the patterns on the fabric without making it cost $100+. If I could print the patterns, sewing it together would be easy.
I could get an embroidery machine what also sews, but isn't the market for custom patches over-saturated as it is? Maybe I could get some people by making the patches noone else will (ones that would mess with copyrights)
What is the cheapest AR clone that is worth a shit?
CM vs JG enhanced is a toss-up imo. they're both good budget guns.
The only JG that had Mosfet was the wanna-be AUG A3, but that was more like a joke than a Mosfet. Know 2 guys who had one, the one just burned down after a few mags, the other just made BANG when he connected the battery.
I´ve made some bad experiences with JG. If you just play with 2-3 times a year, it´s okay. But if you wanna play the shit outta it, forget it !
OP, if you want a CHEAP M4, look for DBoys or A&K
The problem with JG is their QC. But that's also the case with most chinese clone manfacturers. If you don't get a lemon it will last you a long time, even if you abuse the hell out of it.
Get a CYMA nhttp://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=139_24_206&products_id=7642
while i do like CYMA AKs, that M4 you liked is $70-$90 more than the oher 2 gun we're discussing. If he's going to spend $210 on a CYMA gun, he might as well stretch it a little furter ad throw $250 on a G&P
Anyone knows a good software to make .pes files?
Would love to make for me and and for selling to a shop that has a brother sewing machine some works.
if you have suggestions/cracks/serials etc. thank you very much!
I'd also like to know. Either the software is free and shit, or it works and is $1000+
What do you guys think of this?
Echo 1 SOG 68
>Based on rare prototype
I can't get now due to living on a nogunz university campus where even Nerf is banned.
Yeah, that's me.
I go here every now and then.
I really don't mind the plastic.
As for the fact it's JG, does JG sell a version with the same style of front handguard?
i´d rather buy a G&P now than a JG, not only for the externals (and metal body/receiver).
G&P´s have now a decent ROF with 7,4V LiPo, unlike the JG.
G&P´s are now far more reliable as they have been 3 years ago, unlike the JG, where it can happen that something breaks after a few mags or that you can replace the whole hop-up chamber.
I don't think JG makes another Car-15. The closest you will find is the vietnam era M16, but that's considerably longer.
I would also personaly go for the G&P but its $100 more, so it's really up to you. If you don't mind the plastic, the internals on JG are usually good, however like all chinese manufacturers their QC sucks, so it could happen that you get a lemon. E1 has a decent warranty policy and usually inspect the guns though.
iv'e got one. despite the manufacturer, its a actually a very solid gun
So how does it perform?
As in average FPS?
Also has any part broken on you yet? (Ever needed to get it fixed?)
And where did you buy it and for how much?
So I bought a Madbull DD Omega rail, but the rails are out of spec. they're slightly wider and taller than any normal weaver/1913 rail. Thus nothing(grips, lights, etc.) will fit correctly.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is this normal in airsoft?
same shit happened to me when i bought my Noveske rail. Shit's mad gay.
I agree; they don't explicitly say it's 1913 rails but I mean what the fuck? Did you get yours from Madbull, too?
I'm thinking about calling them or something. I wonder if DD/Noveske would care if they knew Madbull was making this junk.
you know you dun goofed when noname chineese clones are in spec and you aren't
And apparently Airsoft GI doesn't like it's customers posting reviews about their crap products... bunch of cheats.
Hey /a/, I just got some fresh wads of dosh for Chinese New Year. I'm ready to burn it for a nice, realistic piece of airsoft gun.
I'm looking for gas type, typically green gas since I don't like to buy CO2 canister tubes. I want something that I can strip down and reload realistically, none of those AEG pl0x. I already have the WE SCAR-L Open Bolt and the WE Glock 17. Really lovely reload and built on those things.
So any of you guys mind recommending each of the following? Shotgun, Ar, pistol and revolver. Oh, I can only order from e-hobby Asia sadly, and knowing that site, their stuff is always outta stock. Anything, anything but M16/4 AR platforms. (Seen too many of 'em during skirmishes here)
I totally would love to get duster but where I'm staying, I have to go through people to import airsoft in (Tight rules and regulations, not to mention overly pricy). If it's not in EhobbyAsia, chances are I can't get any of the adapters or parts.
This is so sad. I honestly don't want to lose an expensive gun here too. So my other options here are to go with similar-ish quality pistols that uses green gas.
OP here. After some research and talks, it boils down to these options (also due to stock from Ehobby):
1. Marushin M629 X-Catridge Revolver
2. Tokyo Marui Desert Eagle
3. SOCOM Gear - Desert MEU 1911
To be frank, I like all these guns. I heard Marushin's newer revolver can take some pounding with green gas and I always wanted to be Revolver Ocelot, though definitely not a skirmishable weapon but I might do it for plinking. Question, does it have adjustable hop-up?
Socom Gear's part of the list prolly because it's cheaper and it accepts green gas. Other than that, two mags and WE-rebrand doesn't sound too bad, I'm not likely gonna upgrade.
Deagle, every man's wet dream. I like how...menacing it is and I heard it can take green gas or duster gas, so there's versatility in that and I also heard it lasts pretty damn long.
I'd be leaning towards the Deagle or the revolver, unless someone can steer me away to neither of those.
Do not get a Desert Eagle, it is not a skirmish-able gun and is the biggest gas-hog I've ever seen, 27 rounds in a mag is nice and all but when you have to start half-loading the mag after most of your green gas can is empty is no fun.
Also it's not a naturally pointing gun and unless you're Andre the Giant it won't fit your hands, I have big mitts and it's still uncomfortable with extended use. Honestly your best bet is a full metal KWA/KSC, they're honestly the best, most realistic gas pistols I've ever used and can stand up to a lot of abuse as long as you clean and lube them.
Huh, I didn't expect TM's Deagle to get that bad, I always hear good things about it. Forget it then, thanks for the pic btw, I got Asian hands and pretty sure that'll be unwieldy, plus the holster issue I keep hearing about...
Okay, so I went ahead and get the Colt Government model instead. Say given the chance to upgrade it, are there aftermarket rails for the 1911? That's what bugs me for now, in case I might need to have a LAM or flashlight. Or if I need Trijicon and stuff.
they are skirmishable, and yes you need big hands. BUT, from what i heard, the safety lever dissasembles itself after time, and i can happen that it blocks the slide then, making it almost impossible to dissasemble the slide fixing it. Same can happen with the KJW High Capa.
So ICS just released/is releasing an AEG M1 Garand.
Not sure how I feel about this, on one hand i'm really exicted and watering at the mouth. On the other the mag is in the bottom of the gun and no PING.
Does only shoot semi though which is cool
If I ever make a US Airborne loadout I'll get one. Until then I'll just be a filthy Kraut.
The clipazines do not fit in an M1923 ammunition belt.
I heard that was not true
ICS, my M1923 belt, the mags, and the rest of the internet disagree. They will fit, but they do not close shut, running the risk of falling out. To carry mags, you will need a bandolier or maybe a BAR belt.
hey /a/, got a couple of questions for you today.
first is whats a good gun modeled after the AK-105? google search on the first page found me 3 105s from Cyma, Dboy, and GHK. Which of these is the overall best for the money? id also like it to be as close as possible to its real world counterpart (able to accept 30 round mags, ~650 rpm, etc.)
second question is if i could get your guys' opinions on AEG and CO2
third and final is if i were to use one, would you guys recommend using an actual optic such as a PSO-1 or an EXPS3 on my airsoft or is the chance of it getting messed up too great?
>tfw it's been released
>tfw there are no spare mags for sale yet
>tfw there are no spare mags for sale yet
OH COME ONE not this shit again...
airsoftglobal has them
I have a cyma cm.031D which is similar, the difference being the gun having an akm top cover, aks-74 sidefolder, aks-74u flash hider, and Bulgarian front sight block. All in all though very reliable and all mentioned imperfections are easily fixed. The gun has seen lots of abuse from being dropped on concrete and in mud aswell as using to bash down a door. Paid $130 for it, everything in and on it are stock, had it for two years now.
trying to buy one right now,
but where I come from(krautland) these aren't sold
are there any airsoftshops that ship internationally?
Last thread is on auto sage.
Post your guns.
Here is my PKM with it's new wood kit, and my friends PKM that I was fixing.
i like the flashhider/muzzlebreak, on the wooden one.
Sheeeit nigga, the wood on that looks great. Don't remember, does the Tanaka use shells, or a mag? And does it have that really annoying resistance on the last half-inch of bolt closing that my crap Dboys one does?
I think I'd have to rig up some kind of front handguard on a PKM.
The Tanaka uses a gas mag like most gas guns. there is no resistance like the Dboy K98. It's very easy to use.
The PKM is weird to grip due to its ammo box. You can grip it by the box, or by the handle.
Huh, the PKM always looked like it'd be better for short people like me because it feeds from the right, but it looks like it's got just as much box on the left side as an M249.
