  1. Perhaps I should just go for reliability and get a Combat Machine. I do like metal receivers on M4s though.
  2. Thanks for correcting me. What I mean is the type of M4 that is general issue to American troops - it would appear to be the M4 A1 carbine. Or is that just what the Marines get?
  3. I will buy my last gun next month before my UKARA expires in early March. I have considered pistols, but I already have eight. I have three rifles, all sub-carbines which I bought with CQB in mind. So I have decided to go for another rifle - an aeg because I can't really afford a decent gbbr and extra mags, and aegs are pretty much maintenance free if you are just a plinker like me. I have finally developed a liking for M4s and would like a normal size battle rifle. And it will probably have to be Chinese nimh powered rifle because of price. So I would appreciate advice from owners. This ticks most of the boxes because of its looks and price: https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-sa-b01-m4a1-carbine-assault-rifle?pv=7988 Difficult to believe it's less than 150 quid with a metal receiver from a brand many think is good. Or are the Edge series so much better that I should consider this: https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-rock-river-arms-sa-e01-edge-carbine?pv=10275 or this:https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/specna-arms-rock-river-arms-sa-e03-edge-carbine?pv=9480. These guns can have a spring change through the stock, but plinkers don't really need to change springs. They also have basic mosfet to protect circuits. Do they have any other improvements my first choice lacks? Are they just a more reliable gun? And then there is the Cyma range of metal M4s like this one:https://www.airsoftworld.net/cyma-colt-m4a1-airsoft-rifle-aeg-with-free-magazine-full-metal.html#product-tabs Not highly regarded I know, but bomb proof by all accounts. Bear in mind that I am looking for an inexpensive 9.6 powered metal rifle with decent externals which will hang on a wall most of the time and get occasional use at a range, not a top quality rifle with superb hop, high ROF etc -just something that can hit a man sized target at 20-30 yards most of the time. Should I go for a Specna , Specna Edge or Cyma? I would appreciate your advice.
  4. I was surprised to see a metal Cyma M4 is priced in the same area as many of the Specna Edge series. Does this mean that Specna is a bargain or that Cyma has improved its metal M4s?
  5. I had practically psyched myself up to get a metal Specna Edge M4 A1 for about £150, even though I don't need it and no longer even play airsoft. But then I did a bit of research on Specna and reviews are mixed. Some rate their guns highly and some on here say they are prone to problems. I suppose you could say the same about all guns, but the Specna are cheap and problems are probably more common with cheaper guns. I only run nimhs and don't shoot my guns that often, so I have no need for all singing and dancing internals and such, but I am no tech and don't like the idea of having to pay more than I paid for the gun to have it fixed. For an extra 50 quid I could get an old stock ICS. The sensible thing would be not to buy anything, but early in March I will lose my UKARA, and then I will no longer have a choice.
  6. So which has the better reputation as a manufacturer: EC or Dytac? Are the Edge series in the shops still EC?
  7. Are the TM ones any good? I know revolvers aren't ideal for airsoft but at least they have 24 rounds. Low powered and plastic but the two models they do look nice. Very quiet though.
  8. How on earth did a brand of bbs get to be called Geoff's? Always amuses me.
  9. Took me a while to develop a taste for the M4 airsoft aegs. And when I got one it was a short barrelled cqb carbine with a ris rail. Couldn't wait to get a front hand guard and light on the ris rails. I still like it but not as much as I once did. Funny how things that didn't appeal can grow on you over time. I have come to the conclusion that the best looking M4s are the basic carbine types issued to US troops. I like the shape of the pistol grip and the polymer hand guard. I even like the carrying handle. A couple of nice looking basic airsoft versions: https://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/ics-metal-m4a1-retractable-stock-airsoft-gun-aeg https://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/ics-metal-m4-commando-with-crane-stock-airsoft-gun-aeg I actually prefer the classic stock on the first one, even though for practical purposes a rear wired crane stock is better for a nimh user like me. I like the uncluttered look.
  10. Specna appears to have a new range out called the ONE.
