So in the end its still economical to the general population to get the FCC. much like some players here who have owned multiple PTW I was one of teh doubters of this company I can't believe that a small company from HK can fix the issues that a large company like Systema have failed to acknowledge or fixed but the quality of some o ftheir parts and the result won me over to the point where I ditch almost all of my PTW for their custom build model, even the one Tony build with all the Prime body sexiness. Like Brad said in teh earlier post BNIB sometimes are not BNIB unless you know the owner personally.
Not to play a critical Noob here but....What If I didnt need any of that stuff? I understand the hop up mod, but I dont need rails and an aftermarket body or anything like that. I know I need Batteries,Mags,Cylinders for a Systema Startup which to me takes precedence over those other things. I may be just one out of many who decide to go the other route, but I never really liked "blinging" out my gun lol.
I bought a Rail for my RS Type 97 but left it off and preferred to use my Iron Sights, Same thing for my RS Type56 Though I had some work done to the Mechbox.
Im not biased towards either gun, but The feel and performance would definately get me.
