Airsoft in Markham

Hi all,
Travelling in Markham this week. Any shops of note in the region you guys know of that I should check out?
That includes guns / gear / facilities / etc.

Thanks.

There is 6mm Airsoft @ Century Plaza (Which is not reccomended) and then there is Kuramae (Which is highly UNreccomended) @ Pacific Mall.

I do reccomend you check out Pacific Mall though. It offers a unique experience unlike common Western malls (Be sure to check out the second floor for lots of yummy foods).

Not recommended and highly UNreccomended, thats high praise indeed.
They still have gear to handle I hope, even if I am just tire-kicking for a web-retailer order.

What exactly are you looking for? I had some problems with 6mm recently... Not sure if my AEG was tampered with my the store owner and sold it to me as a new gun...

The store at Pacific Mall is not only bad, it is to be completely avoided. Period.
6mm has a spotty reputation. If he's there, good luck.

In a nutshell, no stores to look at. If you want gear, find army surplus stores.

Pacific Mall, as said, is quite the experience. I describe it to my friends like this; you just stepped into Hong Kong or some place else in Asia. It's a culture shock, but a lot of fun.

6mm is located at Warden And Steeles.

Agreed. Pacific mall is a VERY fun place to shop if you havent been there often.

Downtown Toronto has alot of fun places to go to.

Like Yonge Street. Bloor.

Im sure you can find alot of army surplus stores there.

I know he's not in Pacific Mall, should have made that clearer.
It's still a fun place to go, and amazing deals if you like electronics, car stuff, fashion, anime, etc.

:sad:
What's wrong with 6mm.
I think the owner is a great guy and have given him business many times over. He always seems to get the things I need and offers them at decent prices.
I've had no quams with 6mm at all.

hA!
Haven't done that yet!
I think I'll go see Illusion for that!
Plus Scarborough is that much closer.
Than again...I'm hoping I don;t have to get my AEG serviced...but alas...the time will come and I'm already thinking about internal upgrades... :-(

I did not call 6mm dishonest. Read again. I said his record is spotty according to many here.
And his attendance at his store is equally spotty from personal experience.

If you want service, get in touch with one of the many Gun Doctors.

The previous recommendation still stands. If things change, I'll be a happy camper myself.

No walk-in store yet. Soon though, soon.

Pacific Mall is bad for anyone who isn't Asian, when I say Asian I mean Chinese. They will try to rip you off if your not of the same blood, yeah it's racist but that's my people for you.
