Newbie asking qustion for the sig551/552.

Hello everyone:
I am the newbie for the airsoft games, and want to buy a good airsoft gun. Now I Interesting for the Ics Sig551/552.

Is that a good airsoft gun?
About 375 FPS is good?
Good for indoor or outdoor game?
How long the battery able to last?
How much will be the good price?
It's able to get the second hand?

I still have many qustion for the airsoft but do not know how to ask. Thanks for you guys helping.

And I am going to Toronto next week, can somebody tell me where I can find the good Airsoft shop in Marham or near that area?

Thanks for the help..

You'll probably hear this a lot but, if you are 18+ get Age Verified. You'll be able to access the classifieds for used guns and the AV retailer section for new guns.
Get AV'd here - http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=74996


Is that a good airsoft gun? - it all depends on what brand you buy. Many companies make the Sig 55x - ICS, G&G, TM, JG
About 375 FPS is good? - Don't be overly concerned with FPS it is easy to change with a $15 spring. Max limits are usually - 350 FPS indoor and 400 FPS outdoor (With 0.2 gram BB's)
Good for indoor or outdoor game? - It depends how you want to play, Generally speaking, 552 is smaller and better for close quarters, the 551 is a mid sized assault rifle more suitable for both.
How long the battery able to last? - It depends on the battery you get and how trigger happy you are. The mAh rating on a battery determines it's longevity.
How much will be the good price? - It depends on the brand you buy. You can expect to pay $400-$600 for better brands and $250-$350 for lesser Sigs.
It's able to get the second hand? - It depends wether or not you get AV'd. The classifieds have many used AEG's for sale.

I own a ICS Sig 551 and I think it's a great gun. If you search You Tube and Google you'll find reviews on it and all other brands, here is an example - YouTube - Airsoft Gun Review of the ICS Sig 551 SWAT AEG


You will find the people here at ASC generally don't like to spoon feed people who make no effort to educate themselves. A lot of the time you can find the answer yourself if you search Google or search for older threads here on ASC. The FAQs are also a valuable source of information. People are more likely to answer your questions if you get AV'd and take a bit of time to put together a well thought out educated question.

Welcome to Airsoft!

Keep in mind that at 375 FPS you won't be allowed to play indoors.

You'll want 350 or 330 FPS or less depending on what your indoor place requires.

However 375 outdoors is pretty much where the sweet spot is.

If you want a store, Army Issue in Port Credit can verify you AND sell you some gear as well (Yeah I know it's a bit of a drive since it's in Mississauga.....)

The battery's amperage affects how long it will last. The general formula at "normal" temperatures is that 1 mAh = 1 shot so a 2000 mAh battery should last you all day and then some if you're not heavy on the trigger.

A good price would be between $300 (used) to 2000+. On average I'd say for a pretty good newbie setup spend $450-500 for a gun, battery, red dot, and a few mags (like 2 or 3 or whatever). Then $100 for gear (used): Vest, BDU's, etc. Then a GOOD face mask (remember you only have one pair of eyes so take care of them $50 or even $100 is a small price to pay to ensure you don't go blind if you goggles shatter or something).

IMO ICS sig 551 is the best minus one thing, their mags blow, bad feeding issues when i got mine, i have herd ics is coming out with mid caps for them, but for internals and full metal ics is my choice for sigs..some tm mags are compatable some need to be modded but it is a easy task to do..if you go with a 552 you run in to battery problems, not much space for a good size battery, with the 551 you have lots of room.

Comme la dit Kozzie, je te conseille de faire des recherches sur le forum avant de poser des questions. surtout pour ces questions de bases, qui sont extremment facile a trouver.
