THE BEST NEWBIE AEG

Recommended Posts

Just a word of warning about clone AEGs for 'newbies'. Some are a little 'warm' out of the box to say the least and a noob may not be able to correct this.

Yeah, but the two I mentioned are usually under 350 if you buy them from inside the UK. The two tone ones from Airsoft World certainly are.

I will say this The new tokyo Marui M4 Sopmod even though its expensive is the most user friendly airsoft gun i have at the moment becasue battery and fuse changing is so simple my cat can change it, all bbs feed into the airsoft gun so no mag falts. Rock solid construction. Plus no need to upgrade becasue at the moment you cant realy do much except add attachments like red dot sights grenade launchers etc. Plus its loud and fun to shoot

 

Take it easy

I don't really see any advantages in buying cheap RIF over a proper one - in my view it's better to spend money once but on a reliable gun. My first AEG was a TM M4 in 2001 which served me pretty well until 2005.

I feel any clone gun would be a great starter, people shouldn't start with TM/CA..etc guns

 

You are everything that's wrong with airsoft.

 

In other news, you can't go wrong with the expensive brands, but some clones are good too.

 

The JG G36c is a popular n00b weapon, as is the AGM HK416.

 

Any of the CYMA or Kalash AK's should do you alright, as well.

 

Clones are a bit hit and miss, to be honest. Spend the extra, and you won't regret it, but if you MUST cheap out and get a clone, read plenty of reviews on the gun you've picked before laying down the cash.

Cyma ak's are ver well built, but may lack in range/accuracy from my experience. I would say JG G36c or M4 s-system are very well built, good performing guns ;)

From a total noob point of view, ive just got a JG AUG A3 two tone. Way to hot for most all sites but my friend is going to downgrade it for me.

Barrel long enough for woods, gun short enough for CQB. and i love the rails :D

 

All the best Yorkie :rolleyes:

+1. Agreed to start small with a JG, DBOYS, CYMA, and definately NOT a A&K.

 

Ohh, and no snipers for the noobs. :P

 

In my experience the A&K M16 variants aren't bad at all :D

GR-16 clear plastic version (sorry if already brought up), I am still using it and it's a great reasonably priced starter AEG.

 

-Good ROF.

-Strong plastic used (not ABS but Nylon Fibre I think) It's more durable then ABS I believe.

-Lot's of parts available for it as it is an M4 variant, always good to know :)

-I think it has a tightbore, I haven't actually checked mine but as far as I am aware most G&G items come with them.

-Pneumatic blowback, it's not great but it's noticeable and because of the design it does not do anything to the battery or the gearbox.

-Clear>2 tone as you wont be seen form the other side of the area like you will with a bright green gun.

-It is fairly wobble free apart from the retractable stock which is and, with most of it's kind, will be a little wobbly.

-If you spray it whatever colour, when the paint gets chipped it does not look nearly as bad with bits of clear plastic showing through as it would with bits of green plastic/metal.

 

I would personally give this weapon a 8-9/10 as a starter AEG and, stock as a normal AEG about a 7-8/10.

It's good, its fun and its £140-£160.

Well from a total noob who's just bought a TM AK47 with a 100 spring installed, I can say it passed it's first skirmish (my second) with flying colours, some of the regulars even commented how much distance I was getting out of it. No chrono so don't know the FPS sad.gif but it's bang-on accurate, nothing shakes or rattles and the only problems I had were with the hi-cap mag's not feeding very well and I lost the butt plate somewhere (I think it may have been whilst diving into a trench under fire). Think I might get some mid-caps and a few more pouches instead of expecting wound mag's to work all the time wink.gif

 

+ve's

 

Large battery = one charge for the day

Not too long, not too short = accurate over distance and okay for close-ish stuff

I was the only one there with an AK in a sea of M4's and MP5's = different

TM = reliable (please don't be the kiss of death). Nothing broke, hop worked great and distance was consistant all day

 

-ve's

 

Price = get what you pay for I guess, but still stung for a first AEG

Looks = fugly unless you dress it up as something it's not

Noisy = not exactly subtle so it's a bit like shouting "I'm over here" if you miss

 

In short, I love it and apart from my MP5K fetish I can only see it getting upgraded instead of discarded smile.gif
