  1. I don't think I've logged in here since the early 2000's......Did the Airsoft thing through college and had a great time with it. Gotten into shooting sports and invested in real firearms at this stage of my life. We have a 100 acre ranch in central TX and myself, my son, my brother in laws, and a few others are interested in doing some casual, informal Airsoft combat out there. My question is, what is the best option for a bone-stock weapon if I want reliability, low maintenance, decent performance (velocity FPS whatever y'all call it)? When I used to play, Tokyo Marui was the best in terms of this. Nowdays, I have no idea what's out there. So yeah, I'm looking for the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry of Airsoft AEGs. Something I can play with for a few hours, a handful of times per year, and trust not to break or jam up. Thanks in advance for welcoming back this ancient old member.
  2. If you've never upgraded before, you probably don't necessarily need to. The m14 is a really good rifle, and you shouldnt even need upgrades unless youre playing against pros with incredible guns. I'd leave it stock, besides, it will last longer that way.
  3. gotcha. thanks guys for the responses, sounds like nobody really knows haha
  4. Guys, I've been browsing these forums for about 30 minutes now looking for some hard answers. I've found nothing but bickering and arguing back and forth about why one or the other sucks, blah blah blah. I'm looking for a couple guns for me and a buddy to play some casual games with this summer. Im in college, without a ton of cash, so these JG/ECHO g36C guns fit the bill. I'm just trying to find out what the differences/similarities are between these brands. I've owned a TM gun, I know they are better, so don't tell me to 'save up for a TM' because I don't care enough about this stuff to spend that kind of money. I want a gun that works, and works reliably, thats it. With that said, can someone who has had personal experience with these guns please explain the difference? I don't want hearsay, I don't want "well I read....", etc. I respect the wealth of knowledge that is to be had on these boards, but at the same time, theres a ton of BS also....let's try and avoid the latter. Thanks in advance for your advice guys. Grant
  5. That is a completely false statement contained inside an utterly worthless post. Let the guys who know something about these guns do the talking.
  6. I owned both guns, and I don't think I'd buy the CA again, but I bought 3 different Marui AK's. They all worked great, and the CA gave me nothing but trouble.
  7. I don't want to mess with upgrades, and I don't particularly care how the gun looks on the outside, as long as it works well on the inside. Is there a brand of gun that fits the bill? Im talking something that doesnt cost as much as a TM, because I could just get a TM, I just don't care to spend the $$
  8. **This topic was moved from the General Area, mods feel free to delete the original. I'm in college now, and I havent played airsoft in several years, I've moved on to building and modifying "real steel" assault rifles, but thats a different story entirely. So, I've been away from the airsoft scene for a while, but some buddies are getting guns and planning a few low key games this summer. I've been reading some reviews, but as usual, info on the internet ranges from very helpful to very biased and useless. Basically, I need a gun that is good enough to not break on me, and good enough to keep pace with some TM rifles that my buddies have. I havent played airsoft in a while, so all these "clones" are new to me. I've been looking at a few of these, namely the ECHO g36C. I used to own Maruis and CA's back in the day, but I don't need to spend that kind of money again, so I just want a cheap one. Can anyone point me toward a "clone" AEG that has good performance and good reliability? I hate to post a "which gun" thread, because I used to mod here and it was annoying, but maybe one of you 'current' airsofters can educate this old veteran on what he should buy.... Thanks a bunch guys.
  9. Well, I used to use a CA m15 (don't remember the exact title), TM AKS47, TM SIG552, CA HK33, etc. Im not worried about a sidearm, I think I have an old pump action shotty that will work fine as a backup, I just have to find it. I'd like something medium/small sized, which is why Ive been looking at things like the G36C. I don't want an Armalite. I could go on and on, but I don't want this to be a "which gun", I'm just looking for a couple suggestions to start my search on the right foot. I don't much care what the gun looks like per se, but that it functions well. I miss that ever-reliable TM AK that I had years ago, and I'm trying to find something that will rival it in terms of longevity and reliability. **haha and no, those arent real SL8 shorties, just a drawing I did in MS paint one time. I'd love one too though :) MODS, IM GOING TO REPOST THIS IN THE AEG SECTION, ITS PROBABLY BETTER SUITED THERE, FEEL FREE TO DELETE THIS ONE.

  11. Heres a good informational page that explains the basic workings of an AEG, the pros and cons of ownership, etc I think its worthy of being pinned, but who knows AEG info
  12. I don't think youll find a USP match with any sort of blowback element.....your best bet is to buy the 40 dollar non blowback gas powered USP match (the gun from half life) and then edit in the muzle flash after the fact. You wont have the full blowback effect, but if you kick your hands correctly, and quick enough, the whole process will look convincing when filmed. We did this before and managed to make it look like a gas blowback .45 was kicking like the real thing.
