MadBull C02 conversion.

Recommended Posts

Want recoil? 

 

Go look into Escort guns.

 

and be prepared to pay many times what you think a 3XXfps blowback rifle should cost in a reasonable world.

 

with the size of a barrett, you could do just about whatever you wanted ;)

And how is that different from pretty much any airsoft product on the market?

 

Body kits and stocks that cost more than real steel counterparts ring a bell?

I touched one today if that counts?

 

Apparently

 

- they do 80 shots to the C02

- theyre about 350 fps

- Dry friing damages them FAST

- You need to sort out your hop up when using it, so that you don't triple feed

- They're a "reet laugh"

the wonders of government funded mass production.

 

most things, however, arent priced extremely high specifically so they become a rare novelty.

Is there anywhere you can find these in stock? I've been all over the place and the either aren't carried or sold out!

 

Nobody has them yet. Madbull only released 50 or so, and used them for, well, beta testing. Now they took what people said about those first 50 or so, and they are fixing the rest so they don't have the same problems/shortfalls.

too expensive for what they are. I rather get upgraded complete gearbox(or FTK) for that money. It would have been better if priced around 120~150ish.

that's not true. i bought one and have had one for the last 2 months or so. got it from airsoftGI. i believe they are already passed the beta testing because they released a limited run which i was able to preordera bout 6 months ago. the only problem with shooting them was the hopup problem, but i emailed madbull about it and they sent me their own stiff hopup rubber and so far it works great and fires perfectly

No, that is exactly it. The ones Madbull gave to Airsoft GI were the early version, of which only 50 were made. Madbull stated those who bought the early version, like you, will get a free upgrade to the new "final" version of the product.

What you fail to realize is that after the FTK, you still have an AEG. And since AEGs suck, why would you want that?

 

Updated plan:

M15A2

Madbull M470

ACOG 4x replica

M203

Supressor

Tanio Koba Twist Barrel

Well said.

 

 

As for Escort guns, show me where I can buy them in ample availability and selection. So far it's been pretty hit or miss.

 

Also, how does one convert these for an external rig? I want to hook mine up to hpa.

With a little luck, you can find the "cheapest" of them at a HK shop. It's the SP M16. But its the worst of the escort guns. If you want the good stuff, go for a Shoei MP44 or YE MP5.

There are several other models, but these are the only ones i have seen.

SP M16´s are sold out pretty much everywhere. If you want an escort gun, talk with sniperx. You find him here.

Strike against excort guns. Maybe I'll consider one if you mass produce them with a little variety.

 

 

That's like being angry at Rolls Royce for not making 12 different models. Escort guns are made by hand in a tiny little shop. The MP5 is IN mass-production, it's just that there's only about five people that make them. You want a Rolls Royce that's hand-built and limited production, or a Honda that's mass-produced that everyone and his brother has?

 

As for selection, they make what will sell. You and a few dozen people may want a G3 but 1000's of people will buy an MP5 or M16. That's been proven since the early days of airsoft, so it's natural to make those first. I agree that if more models are produced then the audience will widen, but Escort is nowhere near the size of Marui, Maruzen or even Marushin. The capitol required for design, testing, and production is huge and look at how many new guns those companies put out every year. Now imagine a company about 1/30 the size putting out 1 or 2 new guns a year, while still making all the old ones to meet demand.

 

They've hinted at an AK for next year BTW.

I've got an Honda Element and I don't see a lot of people with it :D

Granted everyone in my school think it's fugly... <_<

 

If we can find a new fuel source for airsoft that allows realistic blowbacks (electric or gas operated) from an internal power source... that's decently priced, it'll be great.

Say... nuclear powered AK's, anyone? :P
