Hey everybody,

I'm currently in the Philippines on vacation, and I stopped by one of the Airsoft shops and saw a Masada for sale. I'm thinking of buying it here and selling it in the states for anyone interested, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea considering the release of the PTS Masada is very near.

Also, what are your experiences of getting guns out of the Philippines and into America? Is it advisable?

Well how much is the one you are looking at? The PTS Masada ACR is $450. If it's close to that for the A&K I would obviously rather get the ACR.

So far I've learned that eye protection is extremely important. But what abot your balls? Don't those need just as much protection as the eyes?

Take into mind, that the PTS does NOT have the adjustable stock like the A&K. That's what I'm trying to figure out, would you rather buy an A&K with the stock or PTS and shell out 100$ more for the stock?

What do you guys think. I wasn't really able to verify the price, but I think it was around 350$

I'll be coming back to the states by the 24th this month. So the wait will be a bit long.

That is a nice price now I am VERY interested.
Are you shipping it from the US or the Philippines? Also, when could you ship it out?
I do like the non-PTS masadas because they have the cool stock.

I'd say 350$ But I have to check the shop again. I'll get it as soon as I get back to Cebu, and will be returning to the states on the 24th of this month.

Hey AP,

Verify that you'll be able to fly with an AEG. There are a couple of guys that I play with occasionally. They flew to the PI not long ago, to participate in an airsoft tournament. They couldn't bring their AEG's with them, due to airline restrictions. They had to rent once they showed up at the tournament.
It may be different if you're flying from the PI though.
You're probably already up to speed on all of this, considering that your already there. But I just thought I'd bring it up.

Later,
Mitch

if that is the case then id totally go with the a&k. the A&K isnt going to be a pos in the least. its a joint project with a&k externals and g&p internals. if you go on evike youll see them listed upder g&p. a&k's pmags and the masada barrel system is made by waterloo so I wouldnt be suprised if waterloo made all of the masadas externals for a&k. I have a couple of their pmags and they are constructed very well.
