I do that too. I would still tend to tell him which motorcycle as well though.
Realism has many facets when it comes to airsoft. Sound, weight, feel, compatibility, kick, etc, all come into play. No gun does all of these 10/10 of course, but some have either mastered one or two of these dynamics or at least have the best option(s) available.
Most realistic weight: Systema PTW 10/10 (some GBBRs are fairly close)
Most realistic compatibility: Systema PTW 9/10 (it's the closes you'll get)
Most realistic sound: RA-Tech/WE M14 Open Bolt 6/10 (there's a company in New Zealand who's developing a sound box for AEGs with real .22 sound)
Most realistic kick: RA-Tech/WE M14 Open Bolt 5/10
Most realistic functions: Systema PTW 6/10 (for simulated jam, takedown, basic basic functions) charging handle can be modded to work, so can the dust cover to an extent.
Realism is great, but accuracy, distance, consistency and reliability are number one for me.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
