Question Do KWA's come with clear receivers?

Hey,

Too lazy to go through the hassle of tracking and meeting up with a verifier, so I'm gonna use a canadian site

Question though, do KWA's come with clear receivers or have they not gone that route yet like G&G? I can find a KWA on some canadian sites, but clear receivers totally ruin the cool factor for me

I emailed but haven't got a response yet, so just seeing if I get a fast one here.

I know G&G's all use clear receivers, some which are tinted which is at least bearable. But if KWA doesn't yet then I'm so going for one of them

Thanks

All airsoft guns sold on public websites are "cansoft", which means that they either have a clear or semi-transparent (smoked) receiver.

If you're too lazy to meet up with an age verifier, you're too lazy to go to games, right? Then for what do you want these AEGs?

EDIT: Oh, and that should be in the proper forum section. Newbie Tank, it's called. Learn to use the forum sections and search function.

Too lazy to meet an AV rep, then you have 0 chance of getting a full black gun.

Thems the breaks. Fill out your profile and we can give you mroe info. Meeting with an AV rep is very easy to do.

Already been said, but the bottom line is that if you don't want to get AVed, clear receivers are the only possibility.

You could always paint them, but I think theres more of a benefit to just getting AVed.

I sent a request a month ago to a person who lives in the closest city to me, but never got a response, I'll have to try the one other guy.

Don't think I can meet up at a local game to find someone

EDIT: just emailed the second guy, hopefully this one works out
Guess I might as well wait the month or so to get age verified than instantly get a gun that's going to have a clear receiver

Just out of curiosity, how much stuff is in the classifieds? Do you see many TM AK-47's or Maruzen APS-2's or TM M-14's? Those are the only ones I'm itching to get age verified for.

Yes they are all clear. KWA, G&G, SRC, etc. All the ones for sale on the Canadian websites have clear receivers. If you are too lazy to get age verified then you will never be able to get yourself a solid/metal receiver.

You can even tell by the pictures, some of them have darker smoked recievers or black painted mechboxes to disguise this somewhat.

So why do you need an airsoft gun? If you want to plink with a cool looking gun just paint a clear canadian tire one black and have at it.

Because I want to play at local games, yet no age verifiers in the area go to them, unless this other guy responds to my email. If he doesn't I have a 0% chance of getting age verified unless I want to take a ferry and drive to wherever the closest place is.

EDIT: in which case if I have to take a ferry, I might as well just get one of the TM's off craigslist for sale. I'm trying to avoid this

Sorry, didn't realize how in the middle of nowhere Mill Bay is

The age verification system can be a little difficult for people out of the way.

Where do the guys you play with get their guns from? Ask a friend to show you the classifieds and buy through him if you're 18.

Edit: I'm not sure if you actually go to games or not. If you haven't gone to a game yet, you probably should and make some friends while you're there.

Yeah I haven't gone to a game yet either, might just head over some time and ask a bunch of questions etc

EDIT: and nova scotia must indeed suck haha, unless you want to travel to halifax, haven't checked that province's verifiers though

Thanks guys, got the answer I needed and I'll just take the extra time, a mod can close this if they'd like
