Hello,

I was really into GBB until 3-4 years ago. I am looking to sell my GBB, but have not been successful. I have sold and traded on both classicairsoft.net and gasguns.info.

This topic is very relevant to me. Thank you for posting.

Kwong Wah has been relatively unscathed, but has severely driven off a cliff in the last 10 years for Airsoft shops anyway. The glory days are definitely long gone of being able to spend a day there.

Mostly watch shops these days, bar a few of the old boys (Dens & GnG) still going strong.

What's done that? I can't believe Guns n Guy is still going as well as Den Trinity...do DT still do that thing where they email you an invoice to pay prior to shipping overseas? I seem to recall there used to be a retailer called something like "BoomArms Cafe"?

I think Boom Arms still trade online with their hilariously ancient website, but the cafe was one of the first to go yonks ago. That unit is a Thai restaurant or hotpot place now, I can't remember exactly. 

Frankly I can't answer the root cause, but I remember a mass exodus from Kwong Wah about ten years ago (likely due to ridiculous rent) and a few moved to and area called Lai Chi Kok (where WGC and Redwolf now operate their online shop from, after also bouncing around a few places). Since then the handful that did go out there, eventually moved to Diamond Hill which sort of had a new cluster growing, but with the death of EhobbyAsia is also kind of dead now (Tiger11 warehouse is there, and MMC are holed up in a factory building that way still).

I should probably do a write up at some point for any tourists to avoid disappointment.
