Thanks for all the replies Thanks James, Fire support are listing a 6 months warranty which is certainly better than surplusstore and patrolbase but I'd prefer 12 months really Thanks snuff that facebook group looks good Urban airsoft have the CRBs in stock and their warranty is as follows "... replicas come with a 12 month warranty that covers any manufacturers faults, it does not cover wear and tear, tampering faults or any man made faults" Think I might go with them, though the phrase "wear and tear" I do find a little vague, fine if they mean things like hop-up rubbers not so fine if the motor or something major dies after 2 months and that's put down to wear and tear.
I'm looking to buy a Krytac Trident CRB MK2 and I can currently only find two sellers who have them in stock surplusstore and patrolbase. I was quite shocked to see though that surplusstore's warranty on AEGs is 90 days and partolbase's warranty is only one month! I realize that airsoft guns aren't the most reliable things, but I thought that generally new items purchased in the UK came as standard with 12 month warranties, I've only noticed one and three month warranties before on refurbished items. Other places such as socomtactical and proairsoftsupplies have the normal 12 month warranty, but don't currently have any stock unfortunately. The thought of spending £330 on a gun and on its second ever time of being used, at an event just over a month after purchase it completely dies and it isn't covered by warranty I wouldn't be very happy.
