Survey - Airsoft Inventory

Here's a question I have been thinking about for a while. This is your chance to give all of us retailers some input. This could be some good info for ALL of the retailers out there.

What would you like to see more readily available and stocked with the retailers?

I'm not asking specific items, but more general. For example:

TM AEG's, G&G accessories or AEG's, G&P Accessories or AEG's, CA, ICS, Systema parts, Metal bodies, metal slides, KSC, WA, ect......

Let us know if there is something out there that you are tired of ordering, and waiting 4 - 6 weeks for :hammer: I know we will get lots of different answers, however, if there are one or two particular items out there that are really taking the lead, then we could work on accommodating that for you.

PS – I will be without my computer for the long weekend (Feb. 17 – 20th) so I won’t be avail to check until after that, but hopefully you guys take a couple minutes to give us your input, and improve the selection and availability for all of you.

I think AEG internals and upgrades, that is stocked more and not special order as often (maybe causing them to be slightly cheaper as they are brought in more bulk then 1 ofs). So far most of the upgrades I've order, have been on group orders to reduce the costs for the 1 of orders. Do knot if that would work for you guys due to the over head end, but it sure would make me but more from a retailer then waiting for a group order.

G&P AEGs and a more full line of KJW products, including the P226 and 1911A1.

SystemA full mechboxes? Some G&P accesories, including some various RDSs.

Maybe some Classic Army too.

I think internal parts are a good choice. You never seem to be able to find them when you need them. A good FTK for under $250 is a good start, but common items like gear sets, head sets, motors and barrels, etc. Selectors and tappets are good to have around as well. I would think that between Systema, Gaurder, and maybe Hurricane on the lower end might be nice to see.

G&P aeg's,
CA aeg's,
Systema full mech boxes and parts/accessories,
Gaurder parts/accessories,
Maybe star aeg's and parts/accessories,
and Metal bodies would be great too.

Side note: It's always nice to see a retailer interested in what it's customers would like to see more of. Good on you Randy

Some of the new Escort external air GBBs that utilize AEG mags!

Otherwise, sidearm repair/upgrade parts. Primarily for the most common models: M9, 1911, Glock, etc.

Edit: Bioval BBs for those who need bio-degradables. Apparently these are the best on the market for biodegradability.

Classic Army AEGs - it's time for people to realize how good the new ones are, all the retailers in Canada seem to think Classic Army sucks and won't carry them. Being the only retailer to stock the new M15s could bring in a lot of customers.

Some TM BBs, they are the best but no one here sells them. Would have to be a decent price though, I wouldn't pay 50% more than AE/KSC but maybe 10 or 20% more.

Cadpat kit.

Hard to find parts... like the elusive metal hop up for the MK1 Carbine, or a long barrel with a silencer, or a wood stock/grips kit...

I buy locally ALOT... ask Roger, lol... I'm in at seals usually twice a week buying stuff from Rangers, DEA and M1. Personally, I'd like to see more WA upgrade parts, accessories and mags. None of you guys ever seem to have anything for the WA guns. I've looked for extended slide releases, safeties, triggers, mags, loading nozzles, valves, mag rubber and have never been able to get any of it. =(

On a side note, I'd also recommend having order forms IN your stores so that people can order things. I've asked numerous times within the last 1.5 years to have items ordered but, they never seem to make it on the order list.

Here's what you do, contact Roger directly, and tell him what you want put on the order. You can call him, or better, send him an e-mail. He has been very good with getting items on the orders. Also, if your a regular, and he knows it, then he for sure has no problem adding anything you like to the orders. WA parts are harder to get than most. They keep themselves more exclusive than most, but I will see what we can do for you.

Yup I agree, stuff that's hard to come by would be good. No need to go part hunting for +1 year... Add to what JacoNB said some UZI parts and internals.
