Both Elephant Type 89

Hello ASC.
I have been continuing my research into which AEG I should get when I turn 18 in approximately half a year, and I have stumbled across the Both Elephant (BE) type 89. First thing I did was look up BE here, and found several threads saying that BE's other guns were pure garbage. I couldn't find anything on here about the type 89. I did find some other reviews that suggested that it was better than the gun that it's a clone of, the TM type 89. Reasons cited were better finish and better gear quality. Some people on The Both Elephant Type 89 Review - RSOV Online Community this site even suggested taking parts from the BE and putting them in their TM.
Has anyone on here had 1st hand experience with this gun? I love the 3 shot burst function, which seems to work well if the videos on youtube are anything to go by.
If someone could tell me (over PM if you don't want to post it here) what these things go for on the classifieds (note I AM NOT TRYING TO GET ONE YET! I JUST WANT AN ESTIMATE) that would be excellent.
Thanks!

BE guns are crap. As such, nobody bothers bringing them into Canada. Not worth the cost.

Yeah, specifically the rubber butt pad. I wouldn't base my buying decision on a rubber butt pad, that's like basing your car buying choices on the floor mats.

Just looking at the pics in that review you can tell the metal used is low quality white metal castings (easily nicked and gouged, as seen in some pics), lots of visible imperfections, definitely not machine finished.

The finish is the lowest end horrible black paint with no primer which rubs off if you so much as breathe on it.

Internals include the staple Cosmoline-looking kinda grease/gunk so many of the Chinese guns come with, the ever lovely transparent plastic spring guide, plastic bushings and atrocious piston head.

If you're just looking at the pricetag, then admit to yourself you're buying a low quality, low end gun because you can't afford something better; but don't try fooling yourself into thinking it's a good gun by any measure of the imagination, certainly not a "TM topper."

guy that lives 5 blocks away from me bought a BE AUG.
It's absolute garbage.
especially the externals.
The internals are worse than CYMA, DBoys, and AGM put together.

Hmmmm I see. Well, it looks pretty neat, and from some reviews is said to be 100X better than the Aug or g36c, but if no one is bringing them in, it's gonna cost me the same to get this than to get something better that's already here. Shame really, I liked the 3 round burst function.

Then get a Tokyo Marui one.

A Triggermaster mosfet will give you 3 round burst (or any round burst you program it for for that matter) out of any AEG it's installed in plus a whack of other features.
