    Used Nuprol Delta AK21 CQB - Should I buy?

    Thanks for the patience and explanation. Much appreciated. I'm already trying to think of a cover story to tell my wife so I can buy a TM HK416D, a bit of a challenge, but hopefully I'll manage to pull it off

    Thanks for the info. I contacted patrolbase and asked them to change the order to the Firehawk. As you suggested, I'll probably change the barrel sometime in the future. He did, but wasn't completely convinced. It's the big variety that makes it confusing and difficult to decide.

    OK Just found @Sitting Duck's post regarding the FFR A2. Shame I didn't consult here prior to ordering, I thought all CM16s are internally the same... Anyway, as the order (with patrolbase) is still being processed, I guess I can still contact them and change it. Are you guys adamant that it's a bad choice? As I mentioned, I'm after a short-ish version of an M4 for my son. Should I just change my order to the Firehawk? Is it not too short? No sacrifice in terms of range/accuracy?

    OK Thanks everyone. It was a close call between the two. I let my son choose, and he preferred the G&G CM16 FFR A2, as the Firehawk seemed a bit too short. I hope it will prove to be a good choice. Cheers

    Read the thread about Gunfire. With the .co.uk domain I thought they were UK based. I'll stick to patrolbase and other UK vendors. Thanks

    I also prefer the looks of the CM15 over the Firehawk. I don't know how to downgrade the CM15. Hopefully links are OK here; found it here: https://gun-fire.co.uk/product-eng-1152216145-CM15-KR-CQB-8-5-Assault-Rifle-Replica-Black.html My criteria is quite flexible, I want an M4 variant, preferably on the shorter and lighter side, as it'll be for my son. Would be best if it's something that shoots good enough straight out of the box and reliable enough to not break down after just a few games. As for mine - also an M4 variant, preferably full metal. I'm not too picky, but, down the line, I'm planning on getting the TM HK416D Devgru Custom.

    Thanks for clarifying this. So Firehawk it is then.

    So, about to order either the Firehawk or the CM15 KR-CQB 8.5” Couple of questions about them, please: This would be my son's and we don't plan to play CQB. Would the Firehawk perform OK in terms of range/distance in a field game (compared to a std CM16 Raider)? Would the CM15 KR-CQB's 400fps be within the limits for UK sites?

    Thank you all. I'm glad I posted my question here. Showed my son the Firehawk and he really wants it. So that's his rifle sorted. Will look at your other recommendations, toying with the idea of getting the TM HK416D on 0% finance...

    Thank you P13 and Prisce. I'm in the game because of my 11 y.o. son, so will need to buy at least 2 rifles/loadouts. So far, I've enjoyed it immensely, so the plan is to make this a long term hobby. Of course I would rather have the TM HK416D Devgru, and I'm aware of all the benefits, I just cannot make that kind of expenditure at this time. My thought is that a beginner's rifle will do the job for a few months, and then, hopefully, I will be able to afford and justify the expense for a superior piece, which will make the cheaper gun a backup piece, or give to my son, if his rifle will be inferior. Given a £200 budget, what would you recommend for a rifle (M4)?

    Thanks for the tips MisterG. Will follow up on them.
  13. Hi all I'm relatively new to airsoft, just received my UKARA and looking to buy a RIF. With my budget set at ~£200 I'm thinking either a new G&G CM16 Raider 2.0, or a better-but-used M4 variant. From reading here a bit, I know that Nuprol is not very popular, but I do like the Nuprol Delta AK21 CQB. I found an ad for a used one with accessories, for around £200, but some things about the gun don't look right to me, and I was hoping you guys could help me: - The stock is tan, rest of gun black. Seller claims stock was painted, but I'm not sure about it. - Red trigger guard - never saw it on other photos of same model. Any thoughts/recommendations would be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance
