Sir yes sir. Pm the person selling the add and also check their buy and sell rating located on their personal profile before buying from them


Also triple check their post to ensure you have read and understood the exact information presented, if you have further questions ask the seller directly.


Cheers

Word of advice - don't buy everything that looks cool. Airsoft spending tends to add up, you know!

Hahahahahahahahahaha... my bank account is suffering right about now.

Ask the seller for more pics and info. Check the trader's rating before buy to see his history. There is no refund on here so do your research and talk to the buyer to make sure it's what you want.

Hi guys,

If I could I would check I myself of course. But seems th seller is out in AB... But the pistol is a pretty rare one too. Should I make another post to ask for help for someone to check it out locally?

Ask the seller if he/she can bring the gun in question by an ASC gundoc in their local to do a once over and report his/her findings to you via PM.

I would also be prepared for damages by looking up spare parts and source out a local gundoc just in case. If you have any other worries, have your local gundoc do a 5 point inspection as soon as you receive the gun.

OK I'll make it easy for you, before you buy a rare AEG/GBB ask yourself are you going to (A) game it or (B) wallhanger?
If your answer is A then forget it chances are finding mags and spare parts are almost near impossible or expensive if your answer is B then do some research on it ask the buyer for some detailed pictures or maybe a video of the gun in action OR ask some one reputable in the buyer area to check it out fo ryou for a small fee for his/her trouble
