semi cheap guns

i know there are a few sites selling Marui and CA guns in canada, but i find there is a lack of ones selling clone guns like Jing Gong and such as i have head they are decent quality, but alot cheaper. Any one know of where u could get a gun like that for under 180 or somethin? Are people sellin them in the classified? (I would definally get age verified)

Like is always said, you get what you pay for. Semi-cheap usually means cheap quality and poor performance.

An AEG for under $180? Think about it...

The Buyairsoft.ca site gives you a few ideas of what to expect in prices. Research will tell you the rest.

And a quick bit of research on Arnies tells me that CYMA and other 'clone' companies are finally making worth-while AEGs. Full metal exteriors and shooting at 350 or above out of the box. And sometimes half the price of a comparible AEG. So you see Mr. Greylocks, research counts for something. You had best do your own before making a hasty call on something you obviously know sweet F.A about.

No need to get in Grey's face, Coma. He gave the guy the answers he needed.

Snakeeater, there must be half a dozen threads explaining why prices in Canada sucks.

Out of the box performance isn't necessary as big of a deal as quality of the build/parts. (Replacing mechbox internals isn't exactly cheap either when it does fall apart)

Why do you want a knock-off?

That's sorta like buying a 'Hunda VRX' or a 'Toyata Super'

Or 'Classic Army'?

Those of us who can afford TM, CA, etc shouldn't begrudge people who can't. So long as they know what they're getting themselves into, leave them alone. The rest is up to the cruel gods of airsoft.

Thank you for knowing what I know (or dont). You read minds?

He asked if he could find something semi decent for under $180. I told him he would get what he paid for (and he will).
I even gave him a site where he could check prices like he asked.

I have my opinions on chinese guns based on the models I had the chance to check out in person so far. What I think of them will not change until I see far better samples than I saw.

My answer is still correct; he can check published prices out himself. I am sorry the answer I provided is not up to your standards.

JG and CYMA guns are ~ 180 dollars canadian as long as you don't buy them from buyairsoft.ca

Find a member doing a group order and you have your cheap Marui clone.

If you really want to get into airsoft, your looking at dropping a grand to start with AEG, mags, batteries, and gear. AEG price range in and around $500- sky's the limit. If you can find a decent rifle for want your wanting to spend best of luck to yah and hope it works out. But another way you can go is get age verified and try the buy sell section, you won't find any AEG's for $180 but you'll find some pretty good deals. Hope this helps.

There is a review of a JG G36 on these boards, with photos.

So if we use that as a price base; let's say $300 and comes with one battery, one mag, and one cheap charger.
You still need protection for your face, clothing that wont make you stand out like an orange flag in the woods, and ammo.

Then you most likely will need to buy a far better battery charger/discharger and a spare battery, and a spare magazine or two.

From what I saw of the internals, you better be good at upgrades and repairs. Save cash for spare parts in there too.

$180? You might get a gun for $180. How long will it last? That is the question and the choice you must make when you choose the quality level of what you buy. Future upgrade or repair costs must not be forgotten. Mechbox parts are not cheap.

funny how you all bash the china made guns, all the folks in Hong Kong are buying up China made guns like there's no tomorrow.

I just watched a Marui rip it's gears apart the first day out (half day actually) and I'm hearing ppl go months on a china gun with no problem. Of course I've heard China guns breaking down pretty quick, but never in half a day. My stock M4 only lasted 12 rounds and I dun more than 1000 rnds an outting...

I know the older models of the China guns were plain crap. But from my last trip to Hong Kong, then china guns are pretty damn good now...

One thing to note though, the guys in Hong Kong don't mod their guns much after they buy them, atleast not the mechbox. Most ppl play stock guns as the fields over there are a lot smaller....

Oh, and if you like, check out http://www.gunnerairsoft.com. The guy has really honest reviews of the guns....he'll tell you which you can trust and which you can't...but they dun sell to Canada 'cause of the restrictions and everything.

I have a "TSD" M4A1 FMU that was purchased from buyairsoft.ca and I have to say it's holding up quite well. Absolutely no barrel wobble, and the motor seems to be quite good.

The range i got in my last game with it was decent, although every 5th or 6th BB would slice off to the left after about 100-125ft. Not sure exactly what's causing it, but it doesn't happen all that frequently to get me really annoyed.

For the price I paid for a full metal M4A1 with upgraded internals, the performance is exceptional.

maybe its just me but the only gear you really need to at least get a taste of the fun in airsoft are safety glasses and a gun (obviously bb's and bat). if you want to get into the role play of airsoft then you can drop some cash on a loadout
