I appreciate the effort but that is one of the cheaper very common Cybergun pistols and as a result the box art isn't that desirable or noteworthy.

This year of make, along with its unique packaging different from newer models is quite uncommon. I'd be quite impressed if you were able to find another page that hosts it. I think it's worthy of cataloging.

I've got an old Twix bar wrapper in my coat pocket I can post if that interests anyone.

Sorry, but it’s really not.

It's a subjective matter, and you've got the right to your opinion. I don't know what opinion you were trying to convey with your response, but unless you can show me that it is quite common, I'm not eating my words. If this artwork/documentation is common, then you could certainly, easily prove me wrong.

I believe the general opinion is feel free to post more box art and scans but it’d be more interesting if they were classics, desirable or rare.

Just the one box art of the lower grade pistol isn’t that interesting is all.

Ah, that's a great point! But, there's more to these scans than meets the eye, and it took me a while to realize myself. It was only by chance, too. : o

On most Cybergun inserts, there's usually a small catalogue on the back with product numbers : O 

These ID's are a key component in tracking down other possibly discontinued, or unheard of items.

A suggestion, if you have more examples of those items you find of interest, it's time to "pull the trigger" and get them out there.

If you own any of these replicas, how about a comparison of that replica to what was advertised on the box art. How did it or did not, hold up to the  promise of the packaging.

I believe this is a learning process. I myself have to get off my butt and learn how to put pictures of my collection on line here as well (I'm really really old and dont have these skills yet-lol).

I have TONS of airsoft things that need to be scanned. I'm procrastinating to hell and back. You're idea is fantastic, an excellent component for a review. Thanks~

The issue is this stuff is not interesting.  It is not noteworthy at all.  Sure it was made.  It's airsoft but that doesn't really give it any significance.   This isn't even box art, it's paper packaging from blister packed nasty cheap springers licensed by one of the most despised companies in airsoft (Cyberscum).  A company that pretty much every airsofter wants to go under as they're so absolutely despicable.  All they've done here is bought a bunch of crappy Chinese springers, probably for $1 (if that) each and muscled their way in with their greasy licensing.

And lets face it, the packaging is dire too.  Something a 10 year old could do with 15 mins and basic grasp of DTP software.

If you want to archive this stuff, that's fair enough but it would be much more suited to something like a Wiki with tables, product numbers etc.

These are not viable guns for skirmishing so I doubt anyone here would find any value to them.

If you have interesting stuff from MGC, JAC, WA, Escort, Kokusai, Sheriff, Asahi, FTC, Maruzen etc we can get a bit more excited.

Unfortunately, I find the polar-opposite point agreeable. If you're just going to continue to demean or otherwise insult the memorabilia in this thread with subjective opinions, then there are other threads that you may find interesting on this forum. You may want to read those instead.

These are not box art, but the clamshell packaging is reasonable to be considered a box.

There are people who have, and may continue to find it valuable. Clearly this topic isn't targeted for you. If you don't like Cybergun's historic, and previously vague information, that's OK.

The date is 2150.  Someone brings a box of Cyberscum memorabilia to Antiques Roadshow.  It is accidentally thrown in the bin.

Prove people wrong post more. Plenty of room in the thread for varying images.

.....Beretta 92FS (07041). The replica is actually modeled to resemble an M9

 

That's because the Beretta 92FS and the M9 are the same pistol. M9 is just what the US military call it.  

Do you have boxes for anything other than crappy market place springers?

It's actually not.

OK, so they're basically different variants of the same gun

Yes, and there are official different names for both variants. Since it's an M9, and not a 92FS, which is why I pointed that out. It's like naming a Colt 603 with "Colt 604", that's to say, though they may appear to be the same, they have differences in schematic.
