  1. 1) A more expensive GBB is not harder to maintain than a cheaper one. The opposite is true actually. A Tokyo Marui M4 MWS or GHK M4 is no more difficult to maintain than a WE M4. They have a very similar working action, which is very similar to a real steal M4. There are loads of YouTube videos showing how to maintain most Airsoft GBB’s. The difference is that it is more likely that WE internal parts will fail/break quicker than the Tokyo Marui or GHK and so they will need replacing. I use the M4 as an example because I’m guessing you’re looking at an M4/AR15. But, the same is true for other types, AK, Scar etc. 2) Knowledge is key, as in all things. If you don’t know what you are doing with a GBB you can cause damage that will cost money to repair, but the same is true with AEG’s. Again, YouTube is an invaluable resource. YouTube/Google will explain hop up, because it’s easier than trying to give a brief explanation. I understand the desire to go with the realism of a GBB over an AEG. I prefer GBB’s, but as Adolf Hamster said, as a game gun, especially when new to Airsoft, and AEG is a much better bet until you know what you’re doing. I started with AEG’s then switched everything out for GBB’s once I’d gained some knowledge and experience.
  2. Because it’s impossible for someone up to no good to paint part of a genuine firearm and therefore reduce suspicion. If parents are going to allow their 12 year old child to run around the street with a replica handgun capable of firing a projectile at relatively high velocity, then someone phones the police to report it, regardless of colour, religion, gender, sexuality, shoe size, whatever, there is going to be an appropriate response. Instead of the mother bleating on about how the police were over the top and their delicate little cherub is now traumatised, perhaps they should take a bit of responsibility and understand the concern raised.

    Looking for a WE AK74UN. If you’re looking to sell give me a shout. Cash waiting.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  5. So, my purchase arrived eventually. Nearly a month to come from Holland 😧 and as expected it is a cheap knockoff. A tiny part of me was hoping for a trademarked Acog as in the advert, but no, just a cheap looking fibre optic red dot. To be fair the fibre optic does seem to work, but as this is advertised as something for real steel shooters there is no way this will stand up to the punishment of a 5.56. I’m not disappointed as I wasn’t expecting much and it’s no worse than a cheap Acog you’d get on any airsoft site. I’ll probably use it in a future project, give it a spray paint or something. But, it shows those Facebook adverts are not worth the punt.
  6. Bog standard out the box TM or a “fully upgraded” one, work carried out by god knows who? I’m taking the standard one for half the price thanks.
  7. https://prefired.co.uk/ads/mws-fully-upgraded/ 🤔 em, hang on a minute and I’ll get on to Switzerland and move some money around 😂 Twice the price of a brand new one, 4 extra mags, a Daniel Defence rail and a scope. But hang on, because it’s fully upgraded, so bargain.
  8. Hopefully they’ll diversify their GBB rifle range then, because no matter how much I love their M4 MWS and CQBR it would be nice to see something other than M4’s. Some GBB battle rifles would be nice 😉
  9. Just saw this as well. It wasn’t easy getting an accurate translation from Facebook translate, but it looks worrying. Especially as a GHK and GBB fan.

  13. Well I’ve received an email confirming dispatch with a tracking number, so it looks like I’m getting something 🤗 It looks like it’s coming from Holland which is a bit of a surprise. I was certain it would be coming from China. It’ll still be a cheap Chinese knockoff, just interested to see to what standard. I’ll let you know when it arrives.
  14. I’ve had a bunch of adverts pop up on Facebook recently for scopes and stuff. Obviously Chinese knockoffs and the adverts show real steel stuff, but I’ve decided to take a punt on the below Acog I’ve just seen advertised. More out of curiosity than anything else. https://bidvt.site/products/hunting-riflescope-dual-illuminated-chevron-red-green-cross-fiber-scope?fbclid=IwAR34RNbXqrBx1e2mcJqnN5nXFdwIufOcKOsCvzdARQKU2aQ5Rq4yTUhozGU I’ve paid through PayPal so I’m happy it’s secure. I’ll let you know what, if anything turns up.
  15. Unfortunately, whatever the actual circumstances or reasons behind it, this is another of those situations that make airsofter’s and firearms enthusiasts look like a bunch of nutters. There are a load of people out there who don’t understand or want to understand a persons interest in firearms, both here and in the U.S. and these things just play right into their fears and concerns. I’m not surprised companies will start to distance themselves from him. Unfortunately for him this couldn’t have happened in a worse state. If it had been the majority of other states in the U.S. he would have just been one of many guys wandering around with AR’s. Of course, the fact that he’s apparently manufactured parts without serial numbers will mean it would be an unregistered gun, which I think is a felony in most states. Any way, it looks like he’s screwed.
