army armament R27

I'm about to buy this gun from another member:

http://www.actionhobbies.co.uk/Army-..._600_1B6SI.jpg

I asked for that in the wanted section. When I PM'ed me with pictures of this... I totally fell in love with it. it probably is the best looking thing I saw in my life! lol. The color, full metal and all... mhhhhhh.

I just want to confirm this is a good value gun. It'll only be a sidearm, so i dont nessesarily need the rolls royce. I want it to be good, but dont need it to be the very best. It looks awesome, on pictures at least. so how is it?

It depends on the price. It's good looking, works quite well, but it's made in China, and its durability shows it. It won't match a TM's durability but if you can have it at a good price, its fullmetalness makes it a good value.

A great plus, if you like realism, are the realistic trades.

My loading nozzle broke at the second game I used it at. I bought this set: http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwol...l?prodID=25596 so I shouldn't have a lot of problems in the future, at least for those parts.

Since you didn't say what you're getting it for, I'll assume it's free, at which point yes, it's a good value.

If its a retailer that bringing it in ok but if its in the classifieds then its a used item even if unopened. I can't speak for the KWA as I've never used the cansoft version only the full metal. I can say that the R27 had the best blowback and shot the farthest out of the box of any of my gbb's. But I still don't think its a good price. I have bought far better gbb's than the R27 for around $250. If I were you I'd keep looking.

how do you use it if it is NOT OPEN.

I would take army over KWA if those are my only choices simply because of TM compatibility.

I have one of those and yes, consider it TM compatibility so it's good price. As for upgrade TM to have full metal will cost leg and arm. I would grab another one too for 250 $ shipped. I paid my first one more than that and spend some time to mod but I don't feel regret because this gun is really great pistol.

I suggest you go for it and don't look back and stop reading comment from people otherwise you will regret. It's your money though.

Not really. As I said in my previous post, for 30$ I got an Airsoft Surgeon loading nozzle, piston head and spring set. Not bad at all.
