I lucked out on my first (VFC HK417 for $140), crapped out on the next (Zombie Care Package), and got a god-awful WinGun 321 in the previous promotion (Zombie Infestation?) but also an $85 gift card, so I sold the pistol for the taxes and shipping.

I declined this last promotion because I don't want another AEG.

I'm saving the gift card for a GBBR Mystery Box, if ever one should arise. (Zombie Flatulence?)

I won a G&P M4 vietnam version. Was able to trade it for something I wanted.
I was going to do the last Zombie box as there were enough items on the list I wanted or wouldn't be upset getting. Boxes loaded with M4s do not really get my attention, but easily sold or traded to those that like them.

Got the less expensive one about two boxes ago. Was a decent deal. Didn't win one of the bigger prizes. But got a bag of BBs some green gas a training knife a speed loader and a little echo1 patch. Wasn't too bad for $$50 all in.
Hope to get in on another sometime.
Just hard to justify a $200 purchase for a possible prize u may not want.

That is why I look at all the items on the list before I purchase, if there are a lot of items I would use/like to have etc I will get try to order cash supply willing.

Last one I got gave me a King Arms M4 which I donated to a game as a raffle prize. This one gave me a Cybergun AK47 Premium which I can say is not bad. Will I be able to use it, I don't know, but I do have friends who wanted to get started on airsoft so this should be a descent start for them.

My experience was a funny one.

I bought a GSG 522 RIS, they announced one of the zombie survival boxes, I bought one of them and I ended up getting the GSG 522 PK.

Just an unlucky draw, I will never use the 522 PK.

So I stay away from any boxes that include guns I own :P

I got one on the last round and got the worst prize available IMO, a Umarex Smart Team G36C, luckily people here on the west coast don't tend to look at east coast stores for price comparisons, sold it for about the same as I paid for the mystery box. I bought one again this time around, waiting for it in the mail as we speak. If it's another garbage gun I probably won't do it again, even though I don't seem to be losing anything.

My brother recently bought the September one. He received the JG G36C and was totally OK with it. He looked at the review from Colin_S and another about the M14 and figured it would be worth the risk. A good beginner gun, at the least.

Argh! Got rid of my Cyma AK only to be replaced by another Cyma AK, gonna be my shit loaner gun until I decide what to do with it lol T_T
*Swapping it with my friend who got the M14 now *

I don't mind getting the mystery box only if I don't mind getting at least most of the prizes. For example, for this one, I mainly just didn't want to get the Plastic KA M4, and the Cyma MP5 :P

I am taking a loss/subsidizing by going with the M14, but meh, it was something I wanted to add to my collection anyways, so worth the risk (in case I got one of the top prizes )

All the past mystery boxes only had like 1 or 2 items I actually wanted so never felt it was worth it.
