If you're changing the barrel and receiver on a given VSR-10, why bother buying the whole gun in the first place? You just replaced 9/10s of it lol
Better off just buying all the parts separate and a stock, since by the time you're done upgrading the everything, you'll be able to build a functional stock gun by the time you're done lol

The reason WHY you get a marui VSR-10, is because you don't have to change the barrel, hop chamber, and receiver. And you're guaranteed that they are precision spec.

Whereas if you buy a clone, you're NOT guaranteed that one clone is equal to a marui, you're not even guaranteed that one clone is equal to another of the same brand. That's where the manufacturer is saving money, and that's where you're taking a gamble.

It's not a matter of it CAN'T be good, it's a matter of it's NOT OFTEN good.
There's a few examples of inexpensive clones that shoot really good, there's lots of examples of inexpensive clones that are just okay, and there's many of examples of inexpensive clones that are just a huge pain in the ass.

I'm not made of money, why the hell would I spend $2500 on a PTW if it were possible to make a $300 gun shoot just as good for $400 worth of internals??
It's extremely rare to make a $600 gun shoot just as good lol
