It's garbage. It's not even a good upgrade platform as everything about it is substandard. There's only 1 Tactical Force gun that's any good and it's their TF11

It sucks. Won't last you long, shitty internals and material. You're better off with a Kraken from Bass Pro. I strongly encourage you to save up and get something better.

MP5 is a great little gun and there is always one for sale at some point on the classifieds. get age verified and give it a look over.

A great gun for noobs is something reliable that you won't need to work on. A JG is about the least expensive you'll find thats "a great gun for noobs." They run around $350.

Vinciguerra, you don't need 3 separate threads for the questions you're asking.

Your best bet there would be a kraken, which is a kinda ok rifle but not that great. All the rest there suck accept the broxa and lycaon

Best bet is to start with the kraken, start saving up, get a feel for the sport, and then if you do like the sport buy a good gun from the classifieds.

I disagree with the Kraken. It's a great project gun, and a decent starter gun if you're willing to rip it apart right away -otherwise, I'd suggest something like a JG, or a Classic Army if you don't mind spending the money up front. Kraken's are cheap, and the work decent when they actually work. In my opinion they have too high of a lemon rate to be worth investing in right away. When you only have one airsoft gun, you want it to be one you'll know will work when you go out to the field.

If you decide you don't like airsoft (something I've never heard of) you can unload a JG or CA for 90% or more of what you paid for it. You'll take a much bigger loss on the kraken or another cheap gun.

Or you can always go the G&G cansoft route. They shoot great out of the box, and you can upgrade them at will. You can get one with a plastic mechbox starting at $308 or spend about $400 and get one with a proper metal mechbox. This way you have an aeg you can count on to start with as opposed to a crappy aeg and a crappy sniper rifle which you won't be satisfied with.

No G&G halfbreed has a plastic mechbox. And any gun with a plastic mechbox isn't worth more than $10. (No, STAR's polycarb mechboxes are not plastic).
