I would say JG HK416 as well, although if you go for the newest version, it may end up costing over 450, and if you buy the old versions, there are wobble problems.
But really though, the newest version is worth it.

VFC will probably be way over your budget.

I think the VA 416 is probably goona please you the most. For a first gun you run the perks of everyone knowing where to find things and how to help. The SIG is nice if you wanna keep it stock, but cyma stock?

CYMA makes some good stuff, don't be so quick to dismiss them. It's not like they aren't TM compatible internally anyways, so when a problem arises (and it probably will), it should be an easy enough fix.

Yeah, recent CYMA stuff has been really impressive. I have one of their Galils in stock and it's a really solid gun.

No. It's Velocity Arms. But I wouldn't buy from any of those stores except Mach1.

OP: Do a search about S8 and BuyAirsoft. Neither are actually recommended.

If you're looking for a HK416, VA is your only way to go. They also employ an age verification system, so be prepared to show ID (except unless you're AV'ed here). But I PM'ed the owner and he said those VA416's aren't going to be in for another month or so. I'd PM him and ask him to put a deposit on one if you really want one. Or go classifieds.

As fas as I know they don't... And those retailers he listed above, Section 8 is sketchy at best and they never have anything in stock. If you want something, you have to pay for it, then hope they get it across the border for you. If it gets seized you just wasted your money. And as for Buyairsoft and Mach1, both of those retail in Cansoft only guns.

No one has mentioned the CA blowback version of the 416. Looks nice. Would definitely be over a $450 budget though.



Also, not to hi-jack the thread, but are the 8mm bearing gearboxes really much better than using bushings?

So from what i gather, VelocityArms is the only reliable web site. As oppose to S8, or Mach1? when i get AV'd, are here any advantages to the classified's? wouldnt everything on there be used?

No not everything is used. Some people sell guns that are NIB (New In Box) LNIB (Like New In Box) or barely used. But used isn't a bad thing usually since most guns need a breaking in period before they perform at their peek. And you will also get extras usually, such as quality batteries (not the crap ones new ones come with), extra mags, optics, upgraded parts, etc...

And you won't have to deal with the half clear bullshit you get full black full metal evil goodness from reputable brands like TM, G&P, CA, etc...

If you will only want to deal with new guns, theres always a retailer or two that will do custom orders, and these fellas you will only find in the AV sections.

You have nothing to lose by getting AV'ed.

So can Mach1 or VA do custom orders? If i want a certain gun, and they dont carry it, can hey order it from somewhere else? can stores like those order from the states or asia, where as a single person cannot? that whole wholesale liscence thing?
