A rifle for a 7 years old

Hi,

My son is 7 and very interested in my guns. I sometimes let him shoot a bit but those are too big and heavy guns for him.

I want to get him a light, low powered plastic AEG, or LPEG. Even the gearbox can be plastic, as long as it's mostly TM compatible. It needs to be small, but I would prefer a 1:1 replica, not those gnome guns from TM with the weird proportions.

 

There was a full plastic Boyi PDW version I can't find now. I once shot that, it's pretty good. This is the one, just with metal gearbox: http://gunfire.pl/product-eng-1152199141-PDW-BY-808-replica.html

 

I'm looking for something like that. Can be transparent or two-tone.

 

What gun do you recommend and where from?

 

Cheers

S/Hand G&G FireHawk but I'm not selling mine

or

a Short Raider - Good tough smaller polymer M4's

 

The PDW would be fine, think they got medium motor in there but good stuff all the same

 

Could go for a Scorpion I guess or a Galaxy MP5k but hmm maybe I'd stick to a run of the mill gun myself

I'd avoid the cheaper end stuff as you would know already.....

 

You might even consider getting a cheap cyma one and get that downgraded free:

They are REALLY light - the 515 is insanely light but a bit long

still for that price you could hack the thing up a bit if you wanted to

 

you could buy a fixer upper:

but tbh time you pay postage you may as well get a cheapy cyma from TWG - think they are doing free ship on €69 until end of Sept

(but don't quote me)

 

That might be the best option unless a G&G comes up cheap

 

You could get a busted 901c Krinkov and fit metal gears but as hop/barrel is unique

Then I'd avoid getting anything like that - unless you want to do it for a $hits n giggles project

 

D-Boys PDW is ok but battery box is a bit fiddly - but sound if it has the metal v2 box in there even if a med motor

(or use long motor and conventional m4 pistol grip)

 

could get a cheapy £25 gas no blowback pistol

an AEP one will weigh a bit more

 

Think PDW, G&G or cheapy Cyma M4 - could get a cheapy cyma m4 and hack it up a bit to turn it into a short FH M4 thingy

I have a TM MP5 PDW but I think that's too heavy for him with the stock on (that has weights in it).

The plastic cyma M4 might work if I switch to a shorter stock and remove the suppressor. I want something with a stock for him, not just a pistol, because I want to teach him target shooting, and not just fooling around in the house with a pistol.

 

Good ideas SD, it got me thinking.

Young girl at airsoft last week - maybe around 10 - had a P90. I think for something that isn't too heavy, but you can retain quality, going down the compact PDW route might be a good idea.

I was going to suggest a P90 but the grip is a bit fat, I owned a Marui AEP Mp7 once and ergonomically it was perfect for 'smaller' people. Good accuracy and range from it, too.

M14 EBR or a M240, drop them in the deep end,

 

but on a serious note, I got myself a cheapo JG MP5 http://www.taiwangun.com/en/electric-3/jg069-m5-j-jg?from=listing&campaign-id=14 and it weighs nothing, lipo in the front and a plastic MAG mag and it's useable one handed even for my 5ft nothing mother who weighs like 60kg.

In terms of the weight distribution, wouldn't a design like either the P90 or an SMG like the QCW-05 JS (which is essentially a chinese-made bullpup MP5) be best? Or an MP5K?

 

It would be nice years down the road for your son to pick up that gun and think "oh wow, I remember this", instead of a broken, half bit of gearbox :P

It's a Call of Duty Black Ops 2 multiplayer favourite, there's bound to be one out there somewhere. If there isn't, well then Baldrick, I have a cunning plan....... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

 

 

But also, how about something along the lines of these:
