What should i get?

You can say that i am a noob at airsoft and i just bought a aftermath kraken and the gun broke after 3 days of use. pyramid air told me i could send it back and get the same thing but wait until the 14 or buy somethig different. here is the link www.pyramidair.com from what they have what should i get? i want something that wont break after a couple of days but will last me a long time with high fps. my dad is telling me not to get another as " all airsoft is junk" and i want to prove him wrong. what should i get?

Since you neglected to fill in your profile I am assuming you are american since the website you linked is an american website.

The simplest thing to do is to send back your broken Kraken and simply exchange it for another, that way there is no hassle in price difference and shipping difference.

If you do wish to purchase a different airsoft gun, do a little research into the different brands that pyramidair carrys and then make a decision. They have a wide variety of stock, pick a gun with a model you like and then hop around google to find out some information on the company that produces it. Today’s airsoft guns are nothing more than a motor driven gear set that cranks back a piston which is then released to push and compress air in a cylinder which is then directed out the nozzle to propel the BB down the barrel. How you want it to look is up to you. However, you have to keep in mind that in most cases cost reflects qualityl. A cheap gun will most likley have cheap parts.

You're in the USA. Airsoft is cheap down there. Buy a gun that doesn't suck.

Only quality AEG's I can see on that site are. Tokyo Marui, Classic Army Sportline, ICS.

Re-read the posts above, there's some good advice. Like Zone69 said, stick to those brands and you're better off. Take the sportline from Classic Army for example, they seem to only be around $30-40 more than what you bought and are much better.

Here's a relative scale of quality (not exact, but close)

PTW
STAR/ARES
G&P
ICS
Classic Army/Tokyo Marui (TM better internals, CA better externals)
G&G (good externals, internals can be suspect)
JG/Echo1
Aftermath Stuff
Most other clones (Newer CYMA, Dboys, etc.)
Cybergun Shit
Anything else

Airsoft is very much "You get what you pay for." It's one of those things where a $200 gun is that much better than a $100 gun.

Please refer back to my initial post where I suggest that you should take some time and reseach the different companies that make airsoft.

If you are just looking for a quick answer.

Buy the Echo 1 P90.
No reason, thats just the first one that I picked randomly.

Actually, I'd second that. It's a good gun that shoots great out of the box. And being a V6 mechbox, it's not likely to snap. And it's pretty reasonably priced too.
