  1. I was just messing around with battery pricing online, no need to be hostile. When you are talking about the piston being destroyed my best guess is that the teeth would be stripped due to the light pull.
  2. Look what I found faffing about (http://www.genstattu.com/ta-25-9000-6s1p.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjw6My4BRD4ssKGvYvB-YsBEiQAJYd77eD7RDnWIDF4HREt8Xeu8dSTkkTdLWspwLFVQtUnL7gaAp018P8HAQ)!
  3. East coast US? I am there too! (Buffalo NY)
  4. I don't understand. When I look up the word proprietary, I get a definition stating: manufactured and sold only by the owner of the patent, formula, brand name, or trademark associated with the product (dictionary.com). So is the fact that they are Elite Force the problem? Are they more expensive then they need to be? If I am being ripped off please do notify me.
  5. So the mags are a problem? If so what else would you suggest? Otherwise thanks for the help!
  6. Of course of soon as I think that I have this down, my friend comments about a UMP-45 (http://www.evike.com/products/44429/). Thoughts?
  7. Quick question, how hot does the CRB shoot? I heard that springs take time to "settle in" so could that be the issue? Relating to the battery this one (http://www.evike.com/products/33009/) looks okay. I am planning on getting two, but I don't know if I would need the second. CRB cost breakdown: Gun: $325.00 (http://www.evike.com/products/56630/) Magazines (3): $22.50 (http://www.evike.com/products/39406/) BB’s (3): $33.00 (http://www.evike.com/products/35511/) Batteries (2): $56.00 (http://www.evike.com/products/33009/) Flash hider: $9.00 (http://www.evike.com/products/53552/) Spring: $12.00 (http://www.evike.com/products/26258/) Total cost: $457.50 No sales tax, and with free shipping this should be all this gun will cost me. Anyone have changes to suggest?
  8. Hello! Sorry for not responding in a few days. I didn't mean to cause an argument but that seems to have resolved itself peacefully. Just for context, when my tech said that he was reffering to a 11.1v 5200 mAh 25/8C battery that I had from use in RC's. In other news, I think I have narrowed my choices down to the two Krytac's. My only dilemma is choosing which to buy. I have the PDW (http://www.evike.com/products/56629/) which is the best for the CQB environment I will be doing most of my playing in, or I have the CRB (http://www.evike.com/products/56630/) which will have better performance in the field, and is about the size of the average M4 so it will work well in a CQB environment. I have heard great things about the Krytac PDW's accuracy and range (people say that it is great for the length of barrel it has). I have hear wonderful things about the CRB too. I did see a range test on the PDW of ~130ft (40m in video). So I guess in the end it comes down to personal preference, with slight differences in performance. As of right now I am leaning PDW (the little gun that could), but the CRB is so sexy. Before I make a decision, would anyone like to suggest additional guns? I want to make sure there isn't a thing that looks awesome and fits all my criteria the I overlooked. Just to be clear Evike has stated in their video of the PDW that it come with sights. I just don't understand why one review said the PDW didn't have any (a mistake?). I watched this video again (this time on PC) and saw an annotation stating that it does not include sights. In the end, my purchase will include a battery (undecided, feel free to suggest one, looking for a 11.1v LiPo), 3 Elite Force 130 round midcaps, and the gun itself. Side note: the PDW only fits a few batteries, only one 11.1v (http://www.evike.com/products/40190/) and costs $22.48. The last and final concern I should have (and should have spelt out earlier) are the FPS limits of my local fields. My CQB field has a max of 351 FPS (semi-automatic only). My outdoors field has a FPS limit of 400 (full-auto allowed, RPS technically doesn't matter but I have a 50ft minimum range when in full-auto if above 20 RPS, otherwise 10ft).
  9. Hello, For that price you won't get a DMR that performs extremely well out of the box. I suggest getting something that performs well in your budget and upgrading parts as time progresses. When you get your base gun, you should gradually upgrade, high torque motor, tight bore barrel, etc. Someone suggested a bare bones gun, that doesn't seem so bad, as you can upgrade it so that it does what you need for a decent price. In airsoft while high FPS may be enticing, bear in mind that a heavier BB in the same gun will go slower, but travel farther as it has more momentum. So when you get your DMR use .25g-.32g until you have the power (through upgrades) to propel .4g BB's at an appreciable rate, not only will they fly farther they will also be affected by wind less so they will land on target more often. Here is my pick (http://www.evike.com/products/54827/) while the receiver is a corny with the bio-hazard symbol, I own this gun (mine has a different front end with a grenade launcher, which makes it hilariously impractical) and it has decent start off internals. I have shot 4,500-6,000 rounds (lost count) through mine in two months, the only issues were ones that I created with deciding to take the gearbox apart (broke my selector plate when putting it back together). Mine also handles .25g BB's with a 9.6v NiMH very well ~370 FPS with hop-up off and the battery fully charged. Advise saving money up, and getting a 11.1v LiPo, after a new high torque motor, and piston with full metal teeth. In the end, I am not the most experienced when it comes to airsoft guns, so talk to your local tech, and in the end, buy what will make you happy, after all you are going to the one shooting it. Keep in mind though that upgraded DMR's should not be fired in full-auto as that can put extreme stress on the internals and may break something. A DMR is highly specialized, so make sure that you want one before purchasing one. In the end it comes down to personal preference, I enjoy lighting my enemies and their surroundings up with tons of BB's so I made my M16 effectively a LMG. If you want a cross between range and high fire rates, go for a M4, or an AK. This is a large investment and your preferences should take point. Happy hunting!
  10. Hello, If it was an octopus or kraken looking logo it is a Krytac, it is possible that I or others in the forum could narrow it down to the exact gun. If it was a SMG take a look at these (http://www.evike.com/products/56629/), or (http://www.evike.com/products/57991/). I hope I helped! Happy hunting!
  11. Hello, Thanks for the quick response, I do apologize for the mass of information, I attempt to spell out everything so that I don't need to elaborate in the future and potentially cause confusion. While I like the G&P, the phrase on the side of the receiver, "The judge meeting is arranged for terrorist", is a bit too absurd. The front sight is fixed which makes adding a red dot more of a challenge (I don't own one now but I have always planned on getting one). While neither is a deal breaker I would still like to consider additional options. The mags you suggested seem great, 130 rounds and metal for (as of time of writing) $11.00 is insane! The main reason I wanted the split gearbox was the fact that I broke a selector plate when I opened a standard gearbox, and the split box is easier to disassemble, which hopefully will alleviate additional breakage due to incompetence. The tip about buying batteries else where is useful, though I was told by my local tech that some of them may be overly powerful as they were not originally intended for use in an airsoft gun. Thanks for the input, do you have any other recommendations? Happy hunting!
  12. Hello everyone! I was looking into purchasing a gun (I know my third post into the topic, calm down I have figured out what I want), and I needed a bit of help picking something out. I run a E&C M16A3 with a M203 grenade launcher (http://www.evike.com/products/54830/), and it gets really heavy to hold (weighs 13.5 pounds most of which is in the front), which I have set up in a support gunner style. I was looking into getting a smaller AEG for use at my local CQB field as my M16 is unwieldy for use in small environments. Although I would still like it to be able to perform on an outdoors field if I don't want to lug my heavy M16 around all day. I have a budget of $350 to $400 (I would prefer recommendations on Evike as I have a 22% off coupon, but feel free to recommend the best for my budget regardless of vendor). Some guns I have been looking at are from Krytac, they have been--from what I understand--a pretty good choice for people who want decent guns out of the box. Guns that interest me by manufacturer (incomplete list, I will add to it as time progresses): Krytac: Trident CRB in Wolf Grey (http://www.evike.com/products/56630/) $325 Trident PDW in Wolf Grey (http://www.evike.com/products/56629/) $295 The lack of sights on the PDW concerns me though (it has none out of the box). ICS: "Silver Shadow" M4 SRB (http://www.evike.com/products/54429/) $319 ($260 on sale) CXP 264 (http://www.evike.com/products/48374/) $319 with $63 store credit ($319 with 10 midcaps in a special sale) This is EBB and has a split gearbox which I think would be immensely useful as a newby. G&P M4 Paratrooper (http://www.evike.com/products/41568/) $299.99 (On sale for $240) My hope is to have about $300 in buying power by April 24, 2016, and $450 by May 1, 2016. Important info: I will need a battery for the gun so factor that into the price (11.1v LiPo if possible) I want to get some midcaps (I was thinking about 2 hexmags at ~$17 apiece) Coupon of 22% off only applies to things not on sale (Not required, but appreciated) Compatible with M4/M16 style mags Thanks for the help, and happy hunting!
  13. Can someone please close this topic for me? I got what I needed.
  14. If my budget is the limiting factor, how much would I need to increase it for access to better weapons?
  15. Hello everyone! This is my third post on this site (I have had very good suggestions so far, thank you), I still want to be a support gunner which my previous posts have made clear, and I was looking to expand my arsenal a tad with a possibly Russian support weapon. I was looking at Russian weapons purely because of the fact, I don't own any Russian made weapons yet, and I was curious whether or not they would make good support guns. This is the gun I was looking at: http://www.evike.com/products/35938/ To be clear this is not purely a Russian weapon thread but I currently have a slight bias towards Russian weapons at this time but feel free to suggest the best weapons in my budget regardless of where they originate from. My budget will max out at about $300, but the cheaper the better for upgrade purposes. Requirements in no particular order: (Negotiable) Total cost of ~$300 or less including shipping and necessary upgrades (Preferred) Can work,without immediately being destroyed, by an 11.1v lithium-polymer battery stock/with few upgrades (Preferred) Can fit a 5200 mAh 11.1v lithium-polymer battery dimensions: (WORKING ON THIS CHECK BACK SOON) Has an electric mag (preferably included in the price), or cheap flash mags (not included in total price). Metal, with real wood (if applicable) included in price Has a semi-automatic option Not French (I will not have my gun surrendering immediately during combat!) Possibly bull-pup? Shoots about 350 FPS with .25's Will be used outside so it has to be durable Thanks for reading and I do hope you can help me.
