A cost of a Jing Gong gun has gone down by like 60%?!?!?!

Hey, its the underager again. I am just wondering, why has the price of a Jing Gong airsoft gun gone WAAAAAYYYYYYY down? Is this recent or has it been this way for a while?

I say this because only last year, I saw a Jing Gong G36C for about $250 or so at a non-canadian site and now it is only $99 on ehobbyasia! Can someone let me know why and when this happened?

I recently purchased an upgraded JG G36C.......(spring + motor + battery) for about $350..did I get ripped off? (it was not used, it was new..)

$350 sounds about right.

You can't compare foreign prices to Canadian ones.

They're shitty guns?

Well, they work and i know that a lot of people use them, but clones are clones and I suppose people are finally taking the step to buying quality again.

Making them cheap make them more appealing to the 14 year olds that like 'OMG400FPS full metal!11' cheap guns.

Just because it's available in Asia doesn't mean it's available in Canada. It might not be Canadian legal and therefore, for that price, cannot be imported here (thus the higher price).

Canadian prices will be 1.5-2.5 times more than outside of our boarders. If a website's prices are dropping for a gun, it could be due to many factors. POS and they're trying to get rid of them. Could be a sale or a refurbished gun that was once malfunctioning. Don't compare our Canadian prices to overseas as for sure, ours will be much more expensive. $350 for your gun sounds about right.

I was just voicing it as an example, not in reference of the gun itself . I'm not that stupid.

It's true though. Its what the kids drool over.

If you want a good estimate of airsoft gun prices look at UK airsoft gun prices convert pounds to Canadians and that should be roughly there. UK airsoft retailer are known for simply converting $ sign to

I also don't really get what the hype is over full metal....I just like it to be realistic. I bet people would want full metal kits for G36s and UMPs, but a full metal kit on a gun that's not metal IRL? I mean, if the gun IRL is full metal, then I would want a full metal kit, but if its not, then I'll pass.

full metal = more so realistic in most cases (aside from what you pointed out with real versions having polymer parts)

the added weight and the sound of slapping a metal mag in the metal mag well makes things more realistic. but then for even more realism, you'd get a full metal GBBR. :P

JG G36c have always been cheap, ill let you in on a little secret, majority of the airsoft sites in hong kong use the JG g36c as a rental platform for newbies and such, they buy them wholesale in bulks of 100- 200 rifles, each one costs about 30 canadian each

the price ranges from about 70 - 100 dollars over here in Hong Kong
