how are the G&Gs? I have an offer on one for 500 with battery, charger, 1 hi cap mag and 2 low caps (wood and steel) is it worth it?

Ehh....

I would still go with the RS Type-56 (it will set you back about $800 though). It just can't be beat. In addition consider VFC as well, I've heard some great things about their SCAR and if the quality in that translates to their other lines then it should be considered alongside with CA and TM.

But honestly wait until you get your AV tag (shouldn't take more than a week or so). That way you can clearly see all your options instead of wandering around half blind then when you get your AV tag and can see all your options regretting the original purchase.

Nope. $800 is on the high side for a RS Type 56, especially the Type 56-2.

where do I even get one now? can't find anything recent that will ship to Canada. Are they easier to get once AV'd?

Yes, you will have access to the classifieds, which have a plethora of rifles, pistols, accessories etc, etc.

I think I found a new Type 56 for $650 with no battery or charger. Is it worth it?

Real Sword, like many other higher end airsoft brands, does not include battery and charger in their package.

I payed 660 for my Type 97B and alot of people tell me i got a deal on it so i'd guess for a Type 56 650 is fair, besides it's a real sword, you can beat it into the ground and it'll still shot (just like the REAL AK)
