EA Gear = no name made in china stuff. Some is a good deal, some is utter shit. Depends.

Do NOT expect awesome awesomeness.

With Airsoft, you get what you pay for. So don't expect too much in quality with cheap stuff. Good rule of thumb is, you buy cheap, you buy twice.

... I dont understand that logic.

So if you buy something cheap and shitty. and it breaks, and you just keep on buying it over and over again...

You'll be wasting money on shit when you can buy something durable that will last you, and not make you have to rebuy the same shit over and over again.

And if you buy shit for a while, then move up to something expensive, that will be a lot of lost money.

???

... The expensive items generally don't break under normal use.

i dont know... you dont know how i play,
i have a pair of expensive combat boots, 5.11 ATAC storm (before 5.11 dropped the other stuff that came included,
it was 180 dollars i have for a year now but its falling apart
the soles is rubbing cleanly off, the side zipper strap broke on my right boot
i wear it every day because its for a hiking trip that was scheduled for 4 but cut to 3 and its 180 bucks, at the time i didnt know where to find jungle boots
because i didnt know they are are a variant of combat boots so i thought they were all that same

Some expensive items are expensive because they come with a manufacturer's warranty

Hate to say it, but 'pwned'.

Since you're that type, Redzaku.

Again, THIS KIND OF STUFF IS MADE TO LAST COMBAT

>> COMBAT, HOLY SHIT <<

This is just airsoft.

I dunno what you did to those boots man, but my $125 Rothcos have lasted six years and are still going strong. And that's serving as my main footwear for the duration.

It took me a while when growing up to figure out why my dad always bought the expensive things when he had the option of getting something that cost less money. After a time I realised his logic. The man never tended to buy things very often, but when he did it was generally for things that he didn't and had never had... because everything he'd bought in the past was still going, twenty-five years later.

It was always good when mom was too busy to do all the Christmas shopping, because you just knew dad would splurge on the expensive presents, refusing to buy junk.

A bit long-winded, but the point is (as made by other people already) thus: go the extra mile when it comes to buying things. It might be a longer trip, but you'll only have to make it once.

If you really need to go cheap(if you're on a tight budget like me), check out the Element MCTAR-17 RIS. I own one, and aside from having to file it down where the delta ring clamps over it, it's great. The downside is though it's not a free-float system, which means it just replaces the handguard.

Don't bother buying any parts till you actually have an AEG and using it in a game. Till then expensive or cheap stuff like this is not required.

Why you ask? Well let's say you are one of those folks who last out 2 years of waiting. You get in and decide you like the feel of an AK. Then all the M4 parts like that one will be stuff you're selling at fire sale prices.

Or you find that it doesn't fit your brand of AEG, or if you buy one and it breaks but the company that made it has shut down. Or KJW isn't building that M4 any more, or Ken is selling RC Helis when you hit 18.

No part of this spells a winning plan.

You must weigh like 500 pounds to wear out boots by walking.
