I don't if anyone has noticed... but the word "clone" is being used. Now what does that tell us? Maybe it could mean they're compatible with the original non-cloned gun parts?
Look, the thing with clones is, they're not all exact copies, they have terrible quality control, and thus are prone to being lemons.
Jagdalex, you just said the clone rifle is compatible with aftermarket parts like the original; that after you upgraded it so much it isn't even a TSD L96 anymore, and it performs better slightly then the original make just by a little?
He proved it himself, he bought a clone for say... ~250$, plus the 500$ or so in upgrades... ~700$ in total for a gun he can also get for just under twice that (~475$) with half the amount of upgrades and still perform well (~150$). (like TM VSR10 stock plus PDI
Humm no...you got me wrong. I said I paid EVERYTHING new under 500$. I imported the tsd myself and it cost me 125 plus the upgrade parts 325. It cost me 450 total.
So at 450 canadian price, you will not get a brand new Maruzen type 96 bone stock, and we are not even talking about any upgrades put into it yet...
Someone I know as a stock Maruzen with some minor upgrades and it performs WAY less than my tsd fully upgraded...not just slightly...please dude read...and he paid 650 for it here in the classified. So he paid 200$ more and he would have to invest again...in order to have something equivalent to mine.
