M14 clusterf**k

I recently became hellbent on getting myself an m14...

turns out there pretty damn rare and hard to figure out. I tried looking in on the classifieds and theres nothing but tm's and thats way to rich for my blood im looking for an AEG under 400$ so i went to the retailers checked things out. i settled on th new version of the agm Mp0008 (m14).

But it turns out that agm is part of a vast and incredibly complicated network or company working for other companies that subcontract for someone, elsethen rebrand to another and end up selling there own guns without even knowing.

final result i completely lost and i have know clue whats an agm and what isnt...

so please help me, specifically with the m14's that sasksoft armoury and halifax airsoft are selling.


p.s. why is bob's airsoft page still open if he doesnt exist ??

honestly, if you want a good quality M14, TM is your only choice. They make the best M14s on the market. sure, you can get an AGM or a CYMA, but their tolerances will be off slightly, so even if you upgrade it to the same level as a TM, it will not be as good.

If you have your heart set on an M14, but cannot buy a TM (your mistake though), get an Echo-1 M14. That would mostly likely be your best bet.

hope that helps

that really is the problem i know that tm really is my best bet but i really CAN'T, as in do not have the possibility to pay 500$ for a gun... as weak as that sounds.

so i kind of have to unless, someone is crazy enough to sell ma a tm m14 for 400$

You should save your money then.

Buying anything but a TM for an M14 is a colossal waste of time and money.

QFT.

Ask anyone who's owned M14s. It's TM or it's a waste of time and money.

I know it's not the answer you're looking for, specially if you have your heart set on an M14 and you don't have the money for a TM... You might get some other M14 and it'll be kind of okay (depending on how much reference you have with other guns) but at some point down the road... well, don't say we didn't try to warn you.

Plus I mean, if you have 400 now, unless all you have for income is a paper route you should be able to save $50-100 a month (sacrifice elsewhere, less beer, movies, strippers whatever): by summer you'll have $600-800 and you can get something good. And if your budget is really so tight you can't spare $50/mo, bit of friendly advice: stay away from airsoft.

There are people who have posted pretty good experiences with later version of the G&G M14 over at Arnies, so I wouldn't say the sentiment is universal.

What are you talking about? I run a caveman re-enactment club that holds events at the beginning of every month: for the price of an old tacky 80's synthetic fur coat from the Salvation Army and a wood club, you're good to go. :P

Thats often the problem if its not the best quality ppl will usually say its not worth the money... i read lots of reviews and most ppl never had problems with agm's or G&G's, well at least not nay more so than usual.

I've contemplated over a G&G M14 off and on for a long while now.

I've heard one extreme to the next.
"Awesome gun no idea why people insist on TM" and I've heard "It really is worth a load of crap and nothing more. Needed new parts out of the box" sort of things.

There is 2 reviews I came across on here. They both were basically in those 2 categories.

If you're possibly willing to spend on a project gun then go with whatever you are content with. Just look up some reviews and be sure you understand and accept what may come, or may not.

No shit!

I'm sitting here wondering what do I kill my wallet with first... And when.
Thankfully as a German I can kill some of you yanks and steal some things off you guys, so I get to save. Or I get lucky and somebody has a spare set of this or that and is very generous
