Fakes?

Is there such a thing in airsoft (of which any of you know about) where a scam artist company will copy a certain manufacturers box art/gun detailing so much that you can't tell from a picture, but will just be a piece of crap build and quality wise when you do recieve it?

I know what youíre thinking
Did he fire six shots or only five?
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, Iíve kind of lost track myself
But being this is a .44 magnum the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off
You got to ask yourself one question.
Do I feel lucky?
Well, do ya, PUNK?

I dont know if they still exist now, but I did buy a "Western Arms" M92 from Autowings which was similarly misrespresented, total fake clone.

I'm sure if you look hard enough there are. I mean there already are china clones but I guess that doesn't answer your question.

I would love to see a ripoff of a china clone, that would be the day.

I know about clones, but they are fully representing themselves under their own name, but this does seem like a field where cheap counterfeits would be made on some companies.

What you have to worry about is websites selling a TM M4 but shipping your a JG M4 or Echo 1 M4.
