Ah, excellent. I'll try to head over sometime, but I can't bring back anything on the plane with me, and I don't feel like shipping...
Besides, I hate Armalites. Still, I'd like to see what this thing is.

Nah, I have a $450 Marui FA-MAS.
It's OK, just the fact it's a brand I've never heard of has sparked my interest.
I checked, it's a 10 minute drive from where I am...

Ah... I find there's no real point to spring pistols (I mean, no-one skirmishes with them), so I think they should pull the cheaper more abundant ones from the shelves... I hope to God they don't have these on display.

In general, you cant find anything decent for less than $600. If less, they tend to break really fast.
Save your money next time. Learning with a bad gun is not good, it wont even give you a faint idea for what airsoft really is.

Hey, my brand-new FA-MAS was 455... it's great, durable as hell, and has an ROF from Hell. Plus, quite a few guns are under 600, including half the Marui guns (Minus batteries and chargers). I'd lower that to about 330, the cheapest price of a new MP5K (Actually, that'd be an exception. 450 should be the proper number)
Hmm... doesn't look too bad. Might make for a nice project gun... perhaps, with a lot of work, you could somehow drop a nice mechbox into that...

I saw your M16 in many US shop like Icefire. It's a springer. Also, this is not a M16 A3, it don't have the rail on the top. It's a M16 A1 with the M16 A2 hanguard and lot of little accessories...
Save your money for a real AEG, you can got it for a good price on Double Edge or Rangers. :tup:

Bob, you know the $600 is a ballpark figure by the time you have a gun, decent charger, ammo, batteries, extra mags. Yes there are exceptions. But the point is still valid.

Let's not rain on Shooter's parade. It's his toy, his hard earned money & he is very happy with it. That in itself is priceless.

Ah... that's quite true. For 2 guns, BDUs, and just about all my kit, I've just passed the 1000 checkpoint.
As for Shooter, I respect that. It's his hard-earned money, and he can practice with it until he has enough for a proper AEG.
PS: If it is hard to read this thread, I've edited out a lot of my responses. Trying to keep my post-count down, it seems that I've forgotten about forum ettiquete.

Is it just me or is it odd that in most cases airsoft guns costs more than the real weapon they try to copy.

It's true. A real AK47, full auto, sells for about $350 Canadian dollars. You can get an M16 (civilian version) for about $500-$700. An MP5 for around $500. A tommy-gun is between $300 to $400.

i think its mostly in canada that airsoft out prices legal real steel.
and then again, i think the guns that are out priced are the lower end ones like the norincos and such.
Note: i was talking about legal guns, im sure illegal guns are much cheaper than airsoft.
