Questions about AEG availability

HI, my names Mackenzie Hart I'm 17 and will be turning 18 in a couple of months. I have some questions about gun variations available in Canada. First of all I understand that I will have to wait till Iím 18 and get age verified to get an AEG. But there are some things I would like to know beforehand if possible. Is there some G3 and M14 AEG variations floating around Canada and in particular Edmonton? Is there a specific price I would be looking to pay for one? Are these variations hard to repair if they need it (are parts easy to find in Canada). Are they beginner friendly? I have done some research on both the variations. The thing is research is useless in less there are some in Canada that people are selling. If you could give me an answer that would be great
(Please note I am new and I would only like constructive criticism I do not wait any derogatory comments.)

A G3 is a rare gun and is difficult to find, i suggest that you check the classifieds as for price range any guns that you may have seen on out of country websites you can expect a 2-3x jump especially on name brands such as TM, CA, G&P and the like.
M14's go TM or go home and your looking at a rough price range of 400$+

i'd say the prices of AEG's went down substantially.u can get a decent FMU gun now for around $500. which is impossible 1-2 years ago.

$400 for an M14? If anyone finds one for that price then either its gonna sell amazingly fast and the seller just needs whatever they can get for it, or its broken. Try $600+. The M14 I have is valued at about $1000 with a complete overhaul of internals by high-end companies (Systema, Prometheus) installed by a reputable gun doc and a bunch of mags.

To answers the OPs initial question: You can get almost any gun you want with enough time and money. As has been stated, start saving now. Reviews are always useful (when taken with a grain of salt of course) so don't stop that. Try to read and learn as much as you can now until you turn 18 so that once you start buying guns you will know what your getting yourself into. You can start buying gear (vests, accessories for the gun, batteries, chargers, boots, etc...) if you wish now as theres no restrictions on those. You can also try and contact some hosts for games in your area to see if you can attend events as a spectator. While your there you can ask anything you wish (as advice in person as always better than online) from experienced players, you can ask to hold and shoot peoples guns so you can see what the ballistics or airsoft are like and be able to see how gaming is done in your area and whats expected of players as they will be your community once you turn of age.

From the sounds of your post it sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders (you know how to spell and form a proper sentence) and aren't afraid of doing your own research. Whenever you have a question always remember that trying Google and the search bar for this site are always the first step to do. Whatever question you may have, chances are its already been asked and answered. Read all the stickies in each forum (Newbie Tank, FAQ and General sections are great starting points) and if you have trouble finding the answer on your own then go ahead and start a new thread. We just look down upon people who are lazy and choose to be spoonfed by the members here. I don't think that will be an issue with you though.

Welcome to ASC!

I believe there was a fixer G3 (in very used condition) for sale for like $350 but I'm not sure if it's available any more. I highly suggest you go to your first newbie day and rent before thinking of gear to get.

M14 is somewhat harder to repair because of the V7 gearbox but I've heard you have a great gundoc in Edmonton (Sam) so let the gundoc do the work for you and maybe see if you can hang around and pick up a few tricks.

Dude, the version 7 mech box is sooooo easy to work on (compared to a version 2). The problem is all the different external "do da's" that differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, as well as knowing that only the nozzle for a D-Boyz has to be a D-boyz nozzle. Gotta hate clones. All other "regular" brands of the M14 are awesome!!!

I have been looking at the JG T3-K1 (G3 SG1), and I was wondering if it is possible to get a brand new one in Canada? If so what is the price on one?

It's possible, yes; custom orders can be done by specific retailers (I can't tell you their names offhand, as I am not AVed, I deal locally for the time being.) The price is constantly changing, though, so figure 2x-2.5x whatever you see on a site like RedWolf.

short answer yes, your answer no. you will not be able to get one unless your age verified. Airsoft is a 18+ sport
Sniping is not for newbies
If you are underage please do not try to circumvent the system in place, its there for a reason.
Nobody will help you get a gun if you are not age verified or underage
Do not play in your backyard/forest or anything of the like. Only play on official fields.
Please read the FAQ’s

theres been like 4 i'd call that rare, considering the constant influx of G36's MP5's M4's AK's and such

EVERYTHING is rare compared to M4s, AK's, and MP5's. There's always a G3 or 2 (or 3 or 4) for sale in the classifieds.

if you want a DMR gun, the M14 is your best bet. Its gearbox is of a sounder design.
If you want a M14, get TM. If you want a G3, get CA. Simple as that. Between the two, in terms of performance, the M14 is superior.

M14 will run you $700-$800 for a stock brand new one. Worth it? Definitely! Stock, you will outrange most stock AEGs and will have superior accuracy to them as well. Upgraded, the sky is the limit, with near Bolt Action performance potential.

Personally, i would get the M14.

Classic army G3 variants will be avilible full black and metal to anybody over 18 via Mach1 and other selected retailers http://www.mach1airsoft.com/web/catalog.php?cat=25 they shouldn't be more then 550-600 when they go up for sale.
