  1. Local ordinances can differ, so that's a relative question. You may want to look up your state law statutes along with contacting your local city hall to ask them what they do/don't allow in public. I know here that items like airsoft guns or ballistics are strictly prohibited unless they are stored like a firearm... and even then, many places prohibit them even being out in the open. I tell all of my customers that the orange flash-hider must be present, it must be unloaded/no battery, and it must be stored in an appropriate bag for transportation. If there is no flash-hider is present, a FOID (in this state) should be present for a fallback option.
  2. I can make you a cash offer for all your high dollar guns (not looking for TM products, though... sorry). I run a pro-shop so I'd need to be able to sell them for a profit obviously, but the option is there if you want to get out of the game quickly and have cash in your pocket.
  3. If I didn't have 9 guns already I'd definitely take you up on that. Good deal right there.
  4. I'm potentially interested in the MK23 if you're willing to drop the price to $350 shipped and you keep the battery and sling. Not trying to nickel and dime you, I just have a billion batteries already and I don't use slings on the field. I can also offer you a trade on ANY brand new gun of your choice (with some stipulations) if you're simply selling to buy another gun. I'm a dealer, so I have access to just about everything. I saw you're not looking for trades; just wanted to throw that out there if that's what you were doing with the money. Heh.
  5. that's a great builder gun right there. Perfect for you guys on a budget. I'd grab it if I didn't already have an AK, heh.
  6. Foopy, there's a lot of different directions you can go for DMR's. M14's can be a little tricky to work on. Definitely not bad guns, but they've got some extra moving components since they gearbox is crammed into such a tight spot. Cool guns, though.
  7. I have a brand new Type 97 Carbine I'd potentially be willing to part with if you're interested. Battery access is very straight forward, but it IS tight. Body splits apart and it lays right inside the center section. A 7.4 lipoly is your best bet for fitment. I also bought a replacement spring set, tappet plate, and piston for it (all brand new, still in the boxes.. bought for emergency replacement purposes). Price won't be cheap since they're impossible to find in the US and it's still new, but I am also including a ton of extras.. one of which is the top rail for optics.
  8. Just to answer this so everyone knows - we stopped carrying the WE G18 because it snaps the nozzles on them very easily. It's definitely a design flaw. The G17 does not share this problem as the nozzle is completely different. Haven't had any problems with them and I've sold quite a few of them. Of the G18's I've sold, I've probably had 30% come back with nozzle failures.. some more than once.
  9. ^ I am in the process of buying one of G&P's guns right now, actually. I definitely agree with you. KWA makes good stuff, but there are many formidable companies out there.
  10. You won't need more than one KWA gun. I've sold a ton of them, and shot equally as many from customers/friends/random players. I am continually surprised at how well they shoot out of the box. Picking one really just depends on what YOU think will best apply to your setup. That's it. Everything else is simply someone else's opinion.
  11. Notice I didn't make that claim ;) The point was: why choose a PRIMARY by essentially fighting with an arm tied behind your back? The ideal environment is to creat equal competition during play, not have a massive disadvantage. Player skill is the single most important variable, but everything else DOES influence the ability to do things effectively... gun quality, player skill, player physical conditioning, player starting points with various choke points in favor/disfavor, who's on the team, how well do they know the map(s), luck..... the list goes on and on. The problem still comes down to - if I can shoot more, I WILL shoot more. If I have to conserve because I am forced to do so, then I can do it, but it's restrictive to potential in many situations simply because the ammo isn't there. I agree with what you're saying as we are on the same page, but I can comfortable tell you that the player that is EQUAL skill and has more ammo than you is a huge problem. I used to play in cash tournaments (Paintball) and this was always a big problem for my loadout. I was a front player, and my only saving grace was the fact I was essentially a "CQB" player and didn't need to fire as much in order to get the job done... especially considering my targets were mostly 30-50 feet away at the most. I also had to sacrifice ammo for the sake of weight so I could get to the midpoint of the field before everyone else did. In my case, I had half as much ammo as everyone else. Definitely viable, but I did need to be careful.. especially when engaging players that definitely have more ammo than me. Having 1/20 of the ammo would straight up SUCK. Those players that are equally as good will just suppress the hell out of you while walking an angle to where they can finally see you and nail you. There's simply nothing you can do in those situations but move when they move so they can't see you, but then you're exposed to other players and they'll tap you out. Ask me how I know :) Case and point: don't underestimate the value of ammo. It's a lot bigger than you might think. It's only one factor, and there are many factors, but that's a BIG one.
  12. From a distribution standpoint, I can comfortably tell you a big chunk of the reason ISN'T that people aren't buying the products. It's actually the opposite. The problem is KWA makes great products but sandbags their suppliers and dealers by leaving them out of the loop. Leaving people in the dark is what causes problems. I've got people that need KWA specific parts and we have no clue when or if those parts will be available any time soon. Nobody knows, and the fact they haven't even addressed this rising problem of guns/parts scarcity is honestly concerning. We love their stuff at our store, but they're honestly a headache to deal with, and their terms for establishing dealer status are a giant punch to the groin. For the price point - I have absolutely no problems selling KWA's products, and I don't even "push" them. Not sure if they're having management problems or what, but they need to get on the ball and fix things before they go under from not taking action properly.
  13. Get what you want. Everyone else here including me will just be pissing in the wind with their opinion. Nobody else knows what you want. You need to be honest with yourself with what you're expecting out of a gun. Just keep in mind: You've got at best 50 rounds in that magazine. Most players have SEVERAL magazines alone that hold 300+ each. Good look taking someone on that has 20 times as much ammo as you do. Equal skill applied, you will lose every single time. Pretty common sense here.
  14. I really hate to say this, but.. use your common sense. Have you even looked up the price of magazines for the Vector? That's not accounting for the fact you can buzz through a whole mag with one of those in literally seconds. They're really cool guns, but you're restricting your style of play with one of those. I'd take any AEG over that thing any day of the week. Most of those guns are better suited for plinking and conversational pieces than they are as effective primaries unless you're VERY conservative. I've seen it done, but I'd never do it.
  15. I'd take a KingArms over a Classic Army. Performance-wise they're both NOT BAD (from my experience of both manufacturers), but they need attention. Definitely KA does better than CA does with attention to detail. This is my OPINION, though and take it with a grain of salt since I haven't owned a FAL or any of it's cousins. I've watched a bunch of reviews on them though (thought about a DMR for it) and magazines won't be pleasant to deal with since they're obviously unique.. and you also have some wobble issues and questionable plastic issues on both manufacturers IIRC.
