ASC doesn't promote retailers that don't have an age-verification system? I don't see any system like that from A&A either so don't be directing any un-needed heat towards them, at this time I don't think there is any effective system you can implement unless you are directly linked through ASC.

Most I can see to be done is have signature on delivery or something that requires the person to sign to be over 18? Or was that Purolator :S
No, but Mark does ask you for your DoB when you order stuff from him, or at least he ask me for mine, don't know about other people.

Edit:

I noticed this on the description of some of the TSD guns: "TSD has completely overhauled the old SRC guns, and are having them built to their very own, much higher specifications." I wonder if it has truth to it.

LoL when you rebrand something you can have the options of requesting a specifc kind of build so yeah there's possibilities but than again the new SRC V2's have all what they've specified, RedWolf and WGC have some in stock.

Simply asking for your date of birth isn't secure enough, any kid keen enough to type properly and lie about his age can get his hands on stuff.

Droc I agree with you that all retailers should get in touch with ASC and try some way to impose a secure age-verification system. I have been communicating with BuyAirsoft.ca they just got into the whole airsoft business and aren't absolutely sure about the quality of some of the items they are getting. They sold me another gun and had promised me that it WAS this specific product, but when I received it yesterday it wasn't and I clearly knew that, they contacted the supplier for the item (Palco Sports) and couldn't get a confirmation. I say just give them more time to work things up, they are good on their end right now.

This is the review I found, dated 23 Jan, 2007: http://www.airsoftpacific.com/content.php?page=34. It doesn't go into detail on the internals. There seem to be some cosmectic flaws and some compatiblity issues with TM fore grips. Also it states at the very bottom that this gun is a V2. I don't know how much this will help but I thought I let you guys know.

I was never fond of airsplat.com .. they mention nowhere that this is the Version 2, the guy who made it said it was though. As for the front grip and stock I got to take a look at the one that was sent to me by mistake and it was rock solid, and the Version 1 was the one with compatibility issues, but I'm not sure either so I just gotta wait.

I'll have to agree with you about airsplat.com. I'll be waiting with you and we can compare notes, I said "what the heck" and ordered an M16 from BuyAirsoft. Hopefully we'll be able to come to some conclusions about these AEGs.

Hey, from the input I received from people I know that've owned the first line of SRC guns, one of them had a horrible time with it, and the other guy had minor issues.

but knowing the owner personally for at least 4 years does in my mind.

A&A won't sell a gun to anyone that's not a Manitoba Airsoft Association Member.

And to be one of them; You surely have to be over 18 (amongst having a good attendance record ect ect ect. Long story short; ALOT of work goes into becoming a MAA member.)

No, I'm speaking from information I read on the MAA boards

Just because I'm underage doesn't mean I'm a thick-skulled shit-head.

(And by that I mean one of those kids who get their parents to buy them a gun ect ect ect; I know I'm underage, but Manitoba airsoft is different than the rest of Canada; We actually have an indoor place that you're allowed to play in if you're 16)
