Does the "quality" of the airsoft gun really make a huge difference?

hey guys,

I'm a 15 year old from Ontario just wondering if the quality of the gun really makes a difference. I mean, i have shot airsoft guns before in the States and it was really fun but i didnt really get the idea that the higher quality guns shot a lot more accurately than the cheaper guns. Call me a dumb ass but i dnt really know the way the guns work so im just wondering... if you had a great quality gun, and a Cheap gun, would there be a massive impact on the actual affect of the guns (airsoft guns)?

PS: First post/Thread ever on ASC, sorry if it's a little long too ops:

Same logic applies to prostitutes, I wouldn't cheap out, I don't want to be like, "WTF is this" in the end with parts prematurely falling off all over the place. Then BAM! Suddenly there's a ***** in your face!

So pay a bit more or you'll get more ***** then you initially expected.

The world of hobbies has a very nice saying, you get what you pay for. That is a good way to measure things you choose for your self. In your first car, your first pair of sunglasses, first house and grocery list

Just know that a high price doesn't mean high quality all the time.

If you go for VFC, well yes, it's worth your money.

ICS ? Errr... just the gearbox I have opened on my desk is an insult to the gods of Airsoft and gun doc. And you don't want to piss this guy.

China made ? Surprinsingly good for some, even extremely good sometime.
Just consult people before buying and you should be at ease.

Well, put it this way.....

Quality always makes a difference. It doesn't matter if you're talking TV's, golf clubs, motorcycles, or airsoft guns.

You'll never get the same performance out of a cheap knockoff as you will out of a gun that was built for performance right from the factory. It's like deciding you want to get into road racing, and asking if you should spend top dollar to buy a Subaru WRX STi (a car designed for road racing), or if you could get by with a Renault Le Car (a car that should never have been built in the first place).

There's one lesson that you can learn that money sadly can buy. Quality and Cost are not necessarily co-dependent.

Well you have to be a good shot first to know the difference lol
Like, your going to learn how to drive soon. Drive a brand new dodge ram 1500, then go drive a base model hyundai accent, then go drive a volkswagen jetta highline.
Your going to think they all drive really really nice, but for someone who's been driving for 20 years, they all drive way differently.

Anyway, quality is really important. Especially when it comes to upgrading. Most cheaper guns are only 70% compatible with upgrade parts 50% of the time.
And the other really huge benefit to quality is durability. My G&P 249 is worth $600 more than a classic army 249. Because it's made of better steel, you can run trip and fall flat on the BOX MAG and it will not break.
You look at a STAR M249 the wrong way and it's front sight breaks off lol
