Hey, I'm thinking of starting airsoft. As a hobby but may consider it as a sport. I just wanted to know is the a17 a good gun to start with. (Sorry if I seem kinda stupid) because I don't want to spend too much but at minimum requirment. Will it be good? Thanks

Why not play a few games and hire first.

 

You don't want to get the wrong gun and find out after a few games you wish you had got something else.

I wouldnt bother.

 

If you want an M4 and want to skirmish with it, Id look at a G&G which start at £100

If you buy that you will regret it once you play a game and you can't even hit something 10 meters away.

Yeah. I might get this for garden. Hire first. Get this to get into the idea of airsoft. Spend money on something proper once I start playing.

The guys are right, the cheap polymer G&G's are v good for the price.

Don't go and spend.. well; a lot of money on a weapon until you find out if you would prefer to be a sniper or assault.

I'm in the same boat of looking a various weapons and while I am certainly set on an assault rifle I find myself swing from M14's to M16's to AK's and so on! Choice is great until you have to make one!

£71.50 including a pistol and battery ? Toys R Us would struggle to match that.

Why would you want to spend £100 plus another £40-50 for a charger and battery when you can get that kind of offer ?

 

Probably fine as a toy gun in the garden.

save you money buy a better main weapon ;)

 

i hate to say this but with airsoft you do get what you pay for, and almost all new sub £100 AEG's will not be robust enough to last a days skirmishing or 2. (aceptions to this rule are AEP's and shotties)

M4 Railed, much sexier than the M16 and AK :P

MP5s are just nasty railed, I draw the line at an electronic sight and an intimidating flash suppressor on mine :)

 

But yeah, when it comes to buying a first gun see if you can have a hold of some of the different styles and lines before making a decision which could be a mistake. Many airsofters will be happy to let you have a go with their gear and there's always the option of traveling to a shop and hearing their advice, as well as having a go with some of the demo guns there.

 

There's also the added problem of gear- you could put a £200 odd budget entirely toward a G&G Top Tech (the creme de la creme of airsoft) and have nothing left to buy face protection, spare mags, some sort of load carrying equipment, battery and charger, some boots to protect your ankles if you trip, and maybe some camo clothing.

Don't get that A17! Waste of money!
Get a G&G Combat Machine, not much more, and at least 5x better! :D
Also, yeah go a few times first. I'd say go 3 times, see if you like it, then get a G&G :P

+Those guns fire 205 fps... Unless it's Marui, stay away!
Oh, and the comment reviews are funny :L
