A&A has the M4 MAX listed at 2499.95$ + shipping. Jeeeeeeeeeesus.

The M16A3 is like 500 less or so.

These things look pretty bad ass though. Wish I didn't have a get a new car...

if you don't mind me asking, how much does the full gun cost you guys? what about pricing on cylinders, mags and batteries?
Can't release that info

They generally go for $1,900-$2,500 , though.

I don't want to talk about it.

For me, the cost savings to outfit not 1, not 2 but 3 PTWs is itself the cost of a PTW.

Guys can argue over real vs. clone, but when my clone-equipped PTW tags a guy at 300+ feet, real makes absolutely no difference. Funny thing is, I've done that to guys with the real EoTech, when their gun fell 100 feet short of me.

The gun means everything. What you put on it means nothing as long as it doesn't intefere with the operation or structural integrity of the gun.

Use a clone if you want. The real one doesn't perform any better on an airsoft gun.

Maybe that's why he got a replica? Spent too much money on the gun, not much left over for the aiming device. Lol, kind a like:

"Hey, why are you bothering to bend over to pick up a stupid penny? You are a millionaire!"

"How did you think I became a millionaire? <wink>"

Hour later...no reponse?

Safe to assume he's enjoying his new toy? Or still waiting by the door?

Pop out the rear pin, and using some force, you can pop the receiver open.

Best way is to place the gun in your lap, right side facing you, handle towards your stomach, barrel aiming to your right.

Wrap your left fingers around the buffer tube, and use your thumb to push up on the forward-assist knob. Might need to use your right hand to help push up on the forward-assist knob. Use your left hand's fingers to maintain downward pressure on the buffer tube.

It's a safer way than "slapping" it open like some videos show. Yeah, you can do it to a real steel gun, but it doesn't mean you *SHOULD* do it. Be gentle with anything and it will last longer.

Yep they do WarHawk. Once it has been opened a few times it will get a little easier.
The first time I tried opening mine I was afraid I was going to damage something due to the amount of effort I had to use.

And at least there are 2 PTW's on 'the Island'.......I am sure a few more will be added to the total in the future *wink*
