Don't think I'm leaving nerf! I don't know anyone around me that nerfs, so I mod and test fire, for pleasure. I use airsoft so I can actually war, since all my friends have airsofts. I'm looking for a highly durable AEG, for $200 or less. I found Echo 1. Are they trusted/durable? I looked at Marui. I did find ONE Classic Army M15 on kapowwe.com for 135. Shoul I get that? I'll take any recomendations/help with my questions.

Thanks in advance.

PS- If you guys don't appreciate an airsoft topic on Nh, I'll be happy to delete if requested by an admin.

EDIT- On hobbytron.com Ifound a Full metal AKs-74 for a little over $100. This means everything is metal, resulting in great durability, correct?

That CA M15 you found is one of their new "Sportline" ones, which have a plastic reciever amongst other things. But they are new, but some people really like them. If you REALLY want Armlite trades you could get that.

Echo1 is a good bet. I have a Echo1 G36C and it's awesome. But it'll most likely shoot way to hot for anything other then woodland. I might also suggest a Galaxy Mp5K, you'll need to at least get a new battery, but apparently people have been outranging longer guns with their MP5K. But yeah, Echo1 is a trusted and tested brand.

If you really want high durablity, you could find a used Tokyo Marui.

If you want a really nice AEG, get the KWA m4. Best m4 besides Systemas (upwards of 1000 bucks).

Alright, I've decided on either the Galaxy Mp5k, or the TM P90 with integrated Red-Dot.

for suggestions- Durability, accuracy, and range is my main concerns. More suggestions are welcome btw.

M14

Since M14's are the shit. That's what I'm getting. I'm liking it's range and accuracy, but since its a CA, it's gonna be very durable, correct?

the m14 is awesome. All the models I have seen come with high cap magazines that hold something like 300 -500 rounds, depending on who you are buying it from.

Guessed wrong, sorry. Firstly I don't own a Galaxy MP5k, secondly, my name is Galaxy613 because I like making stuff like this and this. I chose my online nickname before the Galaxy MP5K came out.

Dentrinity.com is the best place to get AEGs. At least if you are going all out. I can't recommend anything other than marui. I love mine. I have a Thompson SMG modified to shoot just under 500fps at about 700rpm. I would suggest ebay. You can sometimes get good deals on really great marui guns on there. You won't be getting a tommy gun, but M16s and stuff from Marui are typically abundant.

Some people say Well/Cyma suck, but this gun was actually quite good. Go to amazon and type in mp5 its the well r4 or something. Its 60 bucks and it has a metal gearbox and 330 fps. I'm actually considering it.

Thinkgeek has some airsoft guns, I have no idea about their quality but they might help. (Oh no, what have I done).
Always bring your sword to battle.

I pity the fool who attempts to use a single-shot blaster against me.

M14's are great from what I've heard and can tell. I'm getting this M14 once I get some money this summer. That and maybe a GBB pistol.

Typicaly low prices? You say that with a straight face HOW?

Shorty USA : Echo1 M4A1 : $160
Airsoft GI : Same gun : $145

Nevermind every other Echo 1 gun Shorty has it at LEAST $10 more then normal MRSP. There's no reason other then to rip you off to bump it up that much.

Echo 1 is the new up and comer for airsoft. It has decent guns, good prices (depending on the website that sells them.) and decent range and upgrade potential. Tokyo Marui is another good company thats been used since its establishment as a company. It has a wide variety of guns, a little on the expensive side, but worth it. Again its all about upgrade potential. The M4A1 is a good choice. Get a red dot scope or reflex sight, some magazines, lots of BB's (KSC perfect BBs are a good choice), and some gloves and a face mask. Nothing hurts more than getting shot in the ear or general face area. If your budget allows get a side arm GBB (gas blow back) NBB (non-blow back) are good choices to go with. They are expensive and gas might be hard to come by in some areas. You also can't buy it on the internet though because of federal transportation limits. If you want some cheap guns to get THIS is a good site to go to. If you want to find trades or GOOD used gear and guns HERE is a good place. It has its own section for trades and its divided according to gun type.

Here's my two cents.

I bought a BAR-10 G-Spec off of Airsoft Atlanta the other day. Relatively fast shipping, and I got it for 40 bucks under prices on other sites. Came with a scope and everything.

Also, don't buy from dentrinity. They have cheaper prices, but since they're based in Hong Kong, the shippings around $30-$40.
