I honestly donít see problem with having proprietary parts. Each factory creates their own parts for their own products.
True but you fail to mention that 90% of the other brand's parts can be interchanged with one another, not so with ARES

Its really funny to see this kind of complain only appear in the airsoft industry! So in other words, you guys would expect a H&K part to fit into a COLT, or you expect to find BMW parts in a Honda dealer?
This complaint happens in many industries, ESPECIALLY the auto industry. I don't expect HK parts to fit in a Colt but I do expect the parts in a Colt to not be being out of shit materials that break down very easily and can't be easily replaced.

Come on man, standard parts donít even make sense. If you guys are wining about standard parts, who should be the Standard then? Marui? Because thatís the only brand that famous and most people would at least have one in the past? And exist longer than other?
Standard parts do make sense. When my gun's parts need replacing, I'd rather be able to easily find replacement parts from the airsoft store of my choice. I don't want to contact some American company and hope that they'll be able to get the parts overseas in for me.

So in that case, why donít everyone start buying ARES, and eventually ARES will become the STANDARD parts then!
That's a retarded argument. It's like saying that if everyone switched to anal sex then it'll become the new standard. Smart people will continue to not buy ARES so long as the quality of their internals continues to be crap.

Further more, ARES stay true to a lot of the detail compare to the real steel, like the clockwise threat is probably one, and they have stock tube that can be dissemble from the body, unlike those marui crap that attached!
Most other AR15 style stock tube can be disassembled from the receiver
As for reliability issue, I see ARES as Hyundai, they are getting better and better for both internal and external.
As an auto enthusiast, I personally think Hyundais are still shit,despite their improvement over the years. No point in buying a car rband that's "getting better" when you can just get a car that's already GOOD (Toyota, Honda just to name two).

Give them some times and Iím sure their proprietary parts will be easily assessable in the future.
I hope you're right.

Lastly, as we all know, airsoft is an expensive sport in Canada when compare to other countries, if you guys donít like the special parts, donít even touch airsoft from any manufacture then, build your ownÖlol !
You're correct, many people who are dissatisfied with prebuilt airsoft guns already do this. Nothing new here. I myself am building an AEG to my exact specifications. As a hardcore tinkerer, this is the only way I can be fully satisfied with an AEG.
*P.S. Its really funny that you guys purchased an item that wasnít suppose to be sold in here and then complaining you canít find parts or get the warranty for it. Like the Mk.43 that mentioned above is not officially in CANADA yet, because Iím waiting for one as well!
A lot of Ares items are in Canada yet it's still hard to get parts for them. That seems like the main issue that most ppl are having with ARES. There's nothing funny about a company that doesn't make their parts more widely available.
