I suppose doing this and working in retail, you can get a good airsoft fund going.

I am 13. Sure, I pass off as 17 but eh.
I'm lucky. I get $20 a week for lunch, and another $20 for walking the dog. This explains how I can afford most of my guns and gear. Hopefully I should be getting summer job, then I can afford some more stuff.

This thread has turned into the "Can I has a moneys" thread :v:
Ok, to get this thread sort of back on course, I got one of these 3 weeks ago. [url]http://www.rsov.com/product/0/1729/p_Cyma-AK47-with-metal-body-and-real-wood-furnitures-CM042.html[/url] Near indestructable, heavy (but sits well with a sling), real wood and metal, 350FPS, enough room for an 8.4v battery. Doesn't creak at all. Gun blueing effect is great, wood looks new but I'll do some work on it soon to make it look old. No one at my local site can believe it is a CYMA. It far surpasses the quality of any Tokyo Mauri gun, and comes in alot cheaper too.
[QUOTE=SeamanStaine]It far surpasses the quality of any Tokyo Mauri gun, and comes in alot cheaper too.[/QUOTE] lol.
[QUOTE=c0llide]lol.[/QUOTE] No joke. This thing is MUCH better quality. I've played around with Japanese guns and the new Chinese ones are much better. The old Chinese ones were terrible though.
I've heard a lot of good things about Cyma's new AK-47s and AK-74s. All of the reviews I've read are good. I may consider one in the future, but I'm going to stick with my three guns at the moment. Also, for those who laugh and sneer at Cyma, there was a company, a while back, that did the same thing. Started crappy and now one of the main-stay. Classic Army. Original Classic Army guns sucked. However, now they are one of the more popular brands on the field. Cyma started out absolutely shitty. I'll agree. Most of their guns are still shitty. However, if they start doing what they have been on these new AK models, I think we'll see another player on the brand field. I do not see why you guys think that competition is a threat. (I see it more so as "Oh no, I bought this gun for 400 dollars now people can buy it for half as much with roughly the same quality. Ego-boost deactivated :(" ) Competition is what airsoft has needed for along time. I struggled to start airsoft back in 2001-2002. I had no job, I was in middle school and those were the years where it was either Tokyo Marui or nothing. Most people starting out only bought springers, saw how crappy they were, and disappeared from the hobby. However, I stuck with it until I finally was able to get the TM M16A2 in 2003. Two years AFTER I started. I seriously wish that all these clone brands and cheaper brands existed when I started and have the same quality they do now. Why? Because I would have gotten into airsoft a lot faster, and, things would have been different in this area regarding airsoft. It would have become a little more popular...so...more people to play with. Competition also helps balance the prices. When TM was the only good brand, they literally had the say on what they could price things. Now, with competition, they are forced to adapt. And as those other companies are starting to creep up in quality to them, I'm sure in the future we will start seeing better products from TM, CA, VFC, and so on. This, people, is why GOOD competition is GOOD. Stop being so stuck-up over brands, it's what has killed paintball, and if people keep it up, it's what will kill airsoft. Airsoft is not about "Holy shit, my 600 dollar gun kicks your 200 dollar guns ASS." It's about having fun, learning teamwork, and being more mature and laid back than most other sports and hobbys that involve competition. Seriously. Each time I see a brand battle, this echoes in my head... "Oh, my 600 dollar auto-cocker beats the hell out of your Tippmann 98 because your gun came in a value package at 140 dollars." And that, my friends. Is a direct quote I have heard before. Elitism will slowly drag this sport down a hill, and pull everyone with it.
Because the reality of the matter is my brand new JG G36C which cost me £35, yes, £35 just mowed you and your M4A1 SOPMOD which you spent over £1000 on down. Also, teamwork. No matter what your opponent has I'd rather have a decent team than their weapon.
The thing is with TM is they won't just lower their prices, wanna know why? They can't. Which is also one of the reasons why TM is going to stop selling their guns outside Japan. Wanna know something else? CA which had very good quality control is going down the shitter. Evike has refused to carry CA now because their last batch was so bad. And another thing, these clone companies won't make anything NEW! They got the slave labor, the cheap parts, why not make something new from it? All I've seen them doing is copying old and current TM/CA/VFC designs. [b]Edit:[/b] Also, when I started airsofting in 2002 I didn't have a job, I didn't get money from my parents, nothing like that. I started by borrowing my friend's GBB then I saved money up for months and bought my first NBB (Y&P Beretta) then I saved up for almost a year and sold the M9 and bought a used TM M4. Ever since then I've been selling video games, old guns, and using birthdays and christmas to get more airsoft stuff. [b]Edit:[/b] [QUOTE=SeamanStaine]No joke. This thing is MUCH better quality.

When a CYMA can run stock for 7 years without repairs you let me know.
[QUOTE=c0llide]They got the slave labor, the cheap parts, why not make something new from it? All I've seen them doing is copying old and current TM/CA/VFC designs.[/QUOTE] JLS SCAR. Ok, it's not that good stock, a little tweaking and it's decent, but it was out way before VFC's or CA's.

[img]http://www.airsoftatlanta.com/images/pro-z_set.jpg[/img] For all of you who don't know, TM has been working on train sets rather than airsoft as of late :v: [b]Edit:[/b] I always thought TM should have relocated to Taiwan or somewhere other than Japan to avoid all those shitty laws, if it came stock with a higher FPS, metal body, and blowback for the pistols, that would be fucking epic.
[QUOTE=Awesome Moo]I've known to many people with TM horror stories.[/QUOTE] Like what? Unless the person is brain dead it shouldn't be too hard to fuck up a TM.

And JLS' SCAR isn't that unique other than the front end and stock, the internals all work the same way they would on a M4.
Oh. My bad, I thought TM was NBB.
Once Japan is out of the picture the Chinese will make new guns. Real Sword is a Chinese company making some real leaps in airsoft gun design. Their Type 56s can take two batteries, linked up. The gun is made from real Type 56 parts. The reciever is the same size as the real one (unlike TM and clones, which are afew mm wider). The internals are tidy and clean, wires are ran through wire guides. China has the people to develop the next generation of airsoft replica's. Oh and Collide my friend who got me into airsoft has a CM031 which he got in 2006, and he has used every week to two weeks in half day to full day games and it hasn't failed yet which is ridiculous considering the sheer amount of punishment that boy puts it through, its gears should have stripped long ago.
I want a RealSword type 97 REALLY bad. That gun is sex in a convenient package.
That can shoot your foot and make you bleed :downs:
[QUOTE=Awesome Moo]I want a RealSword type 97 REALLY bad. That gun is sex in a convenient package.[/QUOTE] Yeah it looks really nice. Made of the same materials as the real one. Can take M16 magazines and you can get a picatinny rail for the top for aftermarket scopes. Battery arrangement looks like a bitch though.
[QUOTE=doommarine23]That can shoot your foot and make you bleed :downs:[/QUOTE] Unfortunately, it would be more difficult, because if I remember correctly it shoots at 295. Rather disappointing considering it costs nearly $500.
[QUOTE=SeamanStaine]Once Japan is out of the picture the Chinese will make new guns. Real Sword is a Chinese company making some real leaps in airsoft gun design.[/quote] You act like Japan is bad? You know Japanese manufactures INVENTED everything in airsoft basically. [QUOTE=SeamanStaine]Their Type 56s can take two batteries, linked up. The gun is made from real Type 56 parts.

They'll probably not make anymore guns either.

[b]Edit:[/b] [QUOTE=Awesome Moo]Unfortunately, it would be more difficult, because if I remember correctly it shoots at 295.

If you want to avoid getting a lemon, order from a place that tests the guns and is reliable. I'd also like to see proof behind this recent Classic Army ban, if you'd not mind showing it to me. If you order from places such as AirsoftGI or Airsoft Smith, you will not have this issue with quality control. They test each gun before shipping them out. Airsoft Smith does a full check on them before shipping, I'd know, because I've bought two guns from their store front. I bought my G36k a few months ago and it's running just fine. I managed to out shoot two TM G36cs, which you, c0llide, claimed would never happen in a lifetime. Simply used my scope and easily had them out ranged and was more accurate. Airsoft Smith has shared a very similar view for a LONG time. They carried only TM and Classic Army. I spoke to the man running the shop last week and he's starting to carry Echo 1 and JG. Why? Because he said he was "Shocked at the quality and performance of the new clone guns." This comes from a man who is experienced at taking apart guns and fixing them. He's done it for many years and has been playing as long as I have, if not longer. I was shocked to hear it coming from him, as they were only 'name brand carriers' for a long time. I'm not saying TM is bad. I'm just pointing out, TM is not the god-like their shit does not stink company you try to make it out to be. The other brands are catching up. Why, you ask, do they not make something new? I'm sure they will, they are just working on the current guns out there first. Then I bet we'll see some new stuff. Give it about a year, and I'm sure we'll start seeing some sweet new guns rolling off into the market.

Woah, does it work? :v: [QUOTE=c0llide]You act like Japan is bad? You know Japanese manufactures INVENTED everything in airsoft basically. Yeah um, 1.5 years is not 7, barely a fraction. [/QUOTE] I didn't say Japan was bad. What I mean is once they stop distributing globally or even making or designing guns, China will make their own airsoft replica's. They have the knowlage to do it now, and companies like RS demonstrate they can make quality guns. And yes, 1.5 years is not 7, but I wouldn't be suprised if it does shoot that long, the gearbox is high quality and the only complaint he had was the amount of "lubrication" they shipped it with. He has used that gun for more than 30 games, hours and hours a time each and it hasn't broken yet.

[QUOTE=HkSniper]I'd also like to see proof behind this recent Classic Army ban, if you'd not mind showing it to me.[/quote] I didn't say it was a ban. I said a store stopped carrying CA.

Cause I never said TM has these, in fact I say they don't, I do however say their quality is unsurpassed. [QUOTE=HkSniper]Why, you ask, do they not make something new? I'm sure they will, they are just working on the current guns out there first. Then I bet we'll see some new stuff. Give it about a year, and I'm sure we'll start seeing some sweet new guns rolling off into the market.[/QUOTE] I doubt it. They've literally had dozens of chances to improve on TM design and they haven't done anything with it. [b]Edit:[/b] CA has been cutting a lot of corners on the latest generations so they can lower their prices. Great competition eh?
I can vouch for CA's QC dropping. My friend and his dad both bought CA M15 CQBR's, and within 2 rounds of their first game, my friends dad's CQBR died. Not sure why but it sounded like something was wrong with the gearbox. I think TM is falling behind the times though, but I think they spend more time working on other projects such as their trains. Clone guns are starting to have better externals (metal bodies) that TM doesn't have. Give them some time and their internals will be up there too one day. I still like Chinese clones. They may not last as long, but they're great guns. I wish I had them when I started. The only chinese guns we had back then were the UTG MP5 (CM.027 I think) and the UTG Ak47's, which were CYMA rebrands. Now there's a bunch to choose from. It's great for new comers, but I've also seen it as a bad thing on the field. More kids, or noobs I should say, can afford the guns, and they tend to ruin the games by not calling their hits. I'm not saying it's all of them, but the amount of them has gone up over the last year from what I've seen.
So how come TM has not bothered to improve their own weapons? Where's the metal bodies? Where's some improved internals? Fixes on bugs in previous models (infamous M16 barrel wobble for example) New guns rolling out? If Tokyo Mauri started making metal body guns, I would buy them in a heartbeat. They're internal durability with external durability that I know they would be capable of would be awesome. Yet. All I see is the same plastic guns... It's one of the reasons I do not buy TM. I'd be afraid of tripping over something and snapping an expensive gun such as it in half. It's too bad you can not see, perhaps, a team up between TM and CA. CA's bodies are very well made (I love their MP5.) and internals though have been hit and miss lately (both of my guns however, the MP5 and G36k shoot just fine.) Though, I would rather not spend a ton of money buying a CA MP5 and a TM MP5 just to swap parts...we're talking 400-500 dollars on an MP5. And when I mean outshot, I mean outshot. Range and accuracy, both of which you claimed in an earlier thread would be impossible. I'd dig for it, but it would not be worth my time or effort.
