That's pretty bad ass. I will pair that with a Polar Star LMG in each hand and be invincible!

Sellers (classifieds and retailers) who obviously don't know a thing about the product they're selling, and very openly don't give a shit.

People who tell you they will get back to you about buying something from you. But when you kindly let them know you might be in the area and see if they are interested and never reply to you. Wtf?? At least reply with a no and not leave the seller hanging. ffs

Sellers who advertise tons of upgrades, thousands of dollars worth --for sale at half the price. "Works perfectly. Never gamed. Only put 12 rounds through it to test".

So it's nothing but a really powerful motor with almost no internals at all and breaks down frequently?
Spring guide? Redundant. Don't need it.
Tappet plate? Waste of space.
Barrel? Needs to be carbon fiber to save weight, we'll use an arrow shaft!

My biggest gripes lately are with buying and selling!

Even though I've only completed a few trades through ASC, I've sold dozens of items on Kijiji and feel like I've established pretty good trading etiquette.

1. Follow the darn trading rules, don't delete the price after its sold.

2. Reasonable pricing. Sure... maybe you got screwed and paid more for something that's now selling for a lot less. Did you get use out of it? What was your use worth? Most people aren't dumb; price your gear reasonably, it will sell faster and you can spend less time worry about bumping that 4-month-old thread.

3. More often then not, I get super annoyed by "Pick-up only". If your house is in the middle of no-where, or in some remote part of town with minimal transit access, you'll have a harder time closing a sale on that $15 pair of iron sights. I always try to provide alternative meet up points. Sure you can come to my house... but I also play airsoft on X day, or work downtown on Y day... etc.

4. First come first serve...wut? If someone says they're coming to get your item, honour their word until the time they agreed to come; don't make them scramble to your house only to find out you sold it to some other guy. Tell the first person they're first, and the second person they're second. If you can post an ad, you can reply to the people who respond.

5. Haggle, but don't haggle. It's alright to ask if the seller will accept less for an item, but do it beforehand, not in-person. I've had people show up to my door with wicked excuses as to why they want to pay me $20 for all my items, versus $20 for each item as advertised etc...

I almost never do kijiji deals.

"Yeah i'm 18"
"can you come to my house?"
"can we open it and test it at a ttc station?"
"i'll buy it for (30% of posted price)"
And the funniest of them all:
me "we can go to test it at a local field like siege airsoft"
him "i don't mind going to an empty field and testing it"

Like, holy shit are people for real? I'm not going to the middle of bum fuck nowhere with you to test airsoft, sounds like some shit from Breaking Bad.

Then you're not going to let your friends play with anything unless it's made by Fisher Price.

Oh, I should clarify. Anything I sell on Kijiji is not guns. It's hard enough just to post an ad with the word gun in it

People who post their "sexy gun pr0n" and they're all pictures zoomed in to their muzzle device or mag well engravings, but none of the whole gun itself.

More and more buyers asked for face to face transaction, mainly want to pay less than agreed price.

Very annoying !

Silencers.

There is no such thing as a silencer.

It's called a suppressor.
