there are a tonne of reviews available on this website not to mention the rest of the internet, most AEG's are noob friendly. though most people here will suggest you get yourself age verfied and take a look in the classifieds. as well as if you are under 18, not to bother getting a gun, as we do not support nor condone underage kids owning, purchasing, or playing with airsoft guns.

G36 is a great starting gun. Easy to maintain, easy to disassemble, the V3 mechbox is reliable.. and I've been told the SRC Gen III guns are good quality.

some are brand new, some are like new, and some are used but not abused, but the sellers usually offer detailed pictures and descriptions, there are also some retailers available that you can see only through the age verification system.

A lot of used guns in the classifieds have upgraded internals that are generally better than new stuff.

And in airsoft brand new doesn't mean better. There is a "breaking-in" period that shows a few kinks that might not enable a noob to enjoy his first rifle as much due to lack of experience with the guns.

The SRC is decent but getting AV'ed should be a priority. Attend a few games, talk to people about the rules of the sport; things to know about the guns, which companies are good and which ones to avoid etc...

While there you can also ask to hold and shoot peoples guns as most will be happy to do so. This way you can find out which guns suit you the best first-hand. You may find that the G36 is not the gun for you, thus saving you time and money. Show a willingness to learn and people will take you under their wing in a heart beat.

It's quite a friendly gun for new players for a few reasons.

1. It's lightweight
2. It has a folding stock which newer players really love
3. V3 mechbox is more reliable and won't break as easily in cold temperatures

Biggest drawback - large magazines that won't fit into most pouches as easily, but mags do clip together and new players often stick with one hi-cap.

Even if you don't end up buying a gun off the classifieds it's still a good thing to be AV'ed. If you'd rather get the SRC then it's probably not as big of a priority and you can get AV'ed if/when you attend your first game assuming there is an AV rep at the field who can do it.

What the classifieds does is open up a "whole new world" of stuff. There is more to choose from, and varying price ranges from $100 for a "parts gun" to $3000+ for a SystemA PTW with all the bells and whistles, real steel equipment and extras like scope, mags, cylinders, etc.

There are also more brands to choose from and "black guns" (which have black plastic or metal bodies) available.

SRC is good, and Ken is a good guy so don't have any worries about dealing with him regarding getting your "Cansoft" guns from him.

I am hoping my AV'ing can go through within the 2 following weeks!

I REALLY want to see whats around in the classifieds.

Debating if I want to go for Some G36K, SIG 551 or maybe an AK variant (carbine size like AK-105).. so much choice.. so small a wallet...

Ok, to get back onto topic; No matter if I get AV'ed or not soon, I would like to know if the SRC Gen III G36's have a quick response time when you pull the trigger in semi auto. I don't care about super high ROF in full auto, as I only ever use 3-5 round bursts anyways.

And if this isn't too much trouble, I'd realyl appreciate if someone could let me know if they're any good AK's for around 400-500$ (without extras, just gun and magazine).. something to wet my appetite

Instead of $400-500 for a G&G or something, if you save up to around $600, you'd be able to afford a Real Sword Type 56-2. Big difference.

It doesn't matter what gun it is, it depends what battery you use with it.

Ok, 'cause I had read something having to do with the gun using ball bearings or not.. some guns have a quick response on trigger pull, others have considerable delay. I may have misunderstood.
