I've found this HK website, Airsoft Global, I'm looking to buy classic Army M24 magazines. I've never heard of these guys so of course I'm somewhat skeptical.
post here or PM any experiences you've had with these guys

I've bought from them, the only problem I've had was they tend to list a much lower price on the invoice for customs so they dont charge you so much for tax, but customs caught on and held my stuff till they got a 100% value invoice. Now when I order form them I ask in the message section of the on-line order form for a 100% value invoice so customs don't hold my stuff for 3 weeks again.

I ordered from them alittle while ago. No problems at all, they did list things cheaper than what I paid for them but it caused no problems for me. I got my stuff in 6 business days.
One thing I noticed and liked was that they clearly put on the invoice that everything in the package was "toys", which they were, but my package got here fast and did'nt get opened at the border.
I really like the company and it's one of the first places I look for the stuff I want. 2 thumbs up!

Airsoftglobal is a great company that has some rare stuff, and low prices. I've ordered from them multiple times with no problems. I will say that they do misprint their customs invoices which is dangerous, mostly as "R/C Car Parts", but again, I love their stock.

Just had a buddy using firefox have that same issue.

Use IE or opera, and it works fine.


I've just ordered from them some stuff that is hard to find otherwise, and now that wgc only does wire transfers from canada, these guys will get more of my business.
I know people that have ordered from this place and have had excellent turn around times with minimal hassles.

A great company with fast customer service response time compared to other Hong Kong Sites which usually take 3 days or more to respond

These guys tend to respond after 1 day and they do not write in "engrish"

I bought P90 mags from them before and told them they did not feed well but did not have any means of shipping back to HK since normal means to ship is $50! which is almost the same as me buying the new mags so they offered a discount for my next purchase

When you guys ordered from AirSoftGlobal, approximately how much more did you have to pay (ie. custom and duty fee) on top of the item costs?

I love them. They hold the record for fastest shipping time in my five years here.

Cheap shipping too.

I have to disagree with the cheap shipping unless I am missing something. Went to order 2 GBB mags, and the cheapest shipping they had was $37, and that was surface with estimated 8 weeks delivery time. Regular post was $50, and speedpost was $55...

Doesn't seem very cheap to me.

Edit: wait, I was mistaken. It actually only cost ~34 for regular parcel, and ~37 for speedpost. It saved cart contents from a long time ago, so it was actually close to $200 of parts that were in the order.

So thats pretty good shipping prices.

Did you guys have to pay additional duty fees when the mail man came to your house?
