Unhappy

I wish I had known of this earlier, because I made a few dumb purchases earlier, and cannot return them

Exceptionally good for the young 'up and coming' Airsoft players like myself


Example of a vest


P.S. Correct me, if im wrong but that looks just like the Ncstar Tactical Vest

hey, I'm back again.
and this time, i brought my spell check.


I've been ordering parts and pieces from ehobby Asia, and have heard whispers that they will ship you their guns using a 'strip and send' feature.
I've asked and believe it or not, but it's true. they'll charge you an extra 30 dollars to use this feature and they will ship it in parts that you assemble at a your convenience.

any of you done this?

thank you.

It won't get your gun across the border.

Disassembled or not. Its still a replica firearm. Therefor the customs will take it.

You can get lucky, and they'll just take the restricted part. But chances are they'll consfiscate the whole assembly. if this was a working option, I dont think the system we have now would be in place, now would it?

You're age verified. Make use of it.

oh don't get me wrong, I've used AV options.
and you are right. i do not argue that.

but take a look at all the guys with these black all metal guns, they have broken the law, they have defied all the border policies. they must have done something right.

granted you all live on the east coast, near states where they have light replica gun policies, but in Washington on the west coast, their gun laws are worse than Canada as a whole.

no real harm will come of me at least trying. they have some 100 dollar guns that i think i may just try to import..
frankly the inflation of the AV area really annoys me.

There are lots of reviews that currently exist on this website on both brands that you've listed. Its obvious that you would like an AR but truth be told for the amount of money you are most likely going to spend on either of those brand new, you will most likely be able to purchase something better. So for the time being I would recommend holding off on making a purchase until your verification has come through, once that has been accomplished you should be able to find something a little higher up the quality ladder for about the same price.

hey, i noticed that you're AC Staff, and I was wondering how long it generally takes for a rep to get back to someone, I e-mailed a local rep to get age verified about a week or so ago, and still haven't heard from him, I'm not sure what to do at the moment.. If you could please let me know how to go about with this whole shamble, thanks.

Sometimes get emails get lost in spam filters.

Try private messaging some of the other verifiers in your area. There should be lots of options for the Toronto area.

those a bearing inside the gearboxes that allow for smoother operation. the actual function of said bearings would need to be explain by a gun doc which i am not. I am sure there is a thread around here somewhere about it.
use the search button and see if you can find a thread. or theres always google.
