So what's the deal with these "clearsofts"

Like the crossman brand for airsofts. They usually have clear bodies. What's wrong about it? I've been reading threads and post about and rants about how bad they are, and how trash they are compared to the other major airsoft brands like KWA, JG, Tokyo Marui, Classic Army, G&G and so on.

Oh yeah, I've been wondering, do you think this would work? By purchasing an aeg from the following sites: Mach1,, eastcoast airsoft, pyramid air, (, capital airsoft, and 007 airsoft, that is non-clear body type, say like full metal, or full black, would it work? Like I've noticed clear body airsofts are garbage in appearance, not that I think appearance would have anything to do with fps, power, and quality of it, but I would love to buy the non-clear airsoft ones. Would this work? I know it would be against federal law, and all, but seriously, it looks sooo ugly. Please reply with further information about purchasing a non clear airsoft (full metal, black, camo etc.), and what to do should I purchase a non clear airsoft.

*Edit* - Consequences perhaps? Fines, confiscations?

What do you mean, would this work? Would what work? Would playing with a clearsoft work? Airsoft is about realism. If you want realism, then obviously, no, it would not work.

Also, if you would like to buy an AEG, get AV'd first and take a good look at the classifieds. You will come across interesting finds.

And use the search function next time.

I am not familiar with airsoft.

What my question is, does the element of surprise work on a typical airsoft match?

Wonder how many of these people are buying them to stick up people in dark alleys......gangstas have no time for AV process.

Seriously, you are NOT staying off Drake's radar with this one... i.e. you are asking for trouble.

get AV'ed.

East, please stop asking how to get a gun while you are not av'ed, this is against the rulez and may/will result in an infraction or ban. Please respect our communities rules and stop seeking how to circumvent the AV system. After you are verified we will be more than happy to help you find a gun you are satisfied with. I believe that between this thread and the other you had started you have enough info and resources at your disposal to go onto the next step.

You should read my reply on your previous thread:

You're currently failing at #6. Quite miserably.
