PostSubject: Another One Bites The Dust(er gas)   Sat Jan 05, 2008 8:49 am

Hey everyone!

Well... I'm Jin, and I am an obessive compulsive gas blowback addicted airsofter.

I've been into airsoft for about 3 years now and I spend most of my time on the MAA board, but I am on Arnies, ASF, and ASR as well.

Over the past 3 years I've owned about 60 or 70 different high end AEGs, GBBs, and spring rifles/shotguns. But for varying reasons (usually lack of money or wanting a different gun) I've sold every single one of the guns I've owned. I've learned a lot from the time I've been into airsoft collecting and shooting though... and I've learned enough to know that I just don't like AEGs and that it's GBBs of all sorts that really trip my trigger.

I run an airsoft repair/upgrade shop out of my home but I only do work on gas powered pistols, rifles, and shotguns. I know every AEG gearbox inside and out (including the odd ones like the V1 Famas & UZI gearboxes) but I just don't like working on AEGs. They're frustrating little things that never really feel fun to shoot and they're all really the same gun with a different shell over them. My real love is for gas guns... I love the sound, the feel, and the variety there is in gas powered replicas so thats what I stick to.

As I had mentioned above, I recently sold off the last of my AEGs and I now have about $1,700 or so to play with building some new guns. So many options so little money...

I decided since I'll need a good skirmishing primary to start off with a WA 6" SV Infinity Classic with some nifty custom stuff (hybrid slide/barrel, real steel SVI trigger system, fiber optic sights, etc). After that I'm definately going to pick up a WA M4 CQB-R when it comes out but I'm not too sure what I'm going to do with the rest of the cash. I'm thinking a Glock 34 race gun, a full steel G&P converted KSC M11, and perhaps try to get back the Maruzen MP5K that I converted into a MP5K PDW and sold to Yeager a while back. I would like to do a custom supressed 1911 of some kind and snag one of those nice WA black pearl gripped M9s as well, but finances are kind of limited so we'll see how things work out.


But yeah, thats pretty much me! I'm Jin, and I love building custom GBBs (particularly automatic ones) and I usually attend organized skirmishes once a month or so. Smile

Good to have you man, I recognize you from those other forums (mostly Arnies I think). I have given up on aegs as well. Sounds like you have a few good projects coming up in the future, should be nice!

Ya welcome to the forums! I have to agree with you guys, I am not to fond of AEGs. A gas gun is much more practical in my eyes. Sounds like you have some money to blow as well. Good luck!

I don't care uch for AEGs either, but some replicas just can't be had in gas form...

ever think about getting into the airsoft classics? those are mostly gas blow backs. I recently got an Asahi AR-18 (NBB type) the thing is sweet! I'm out ranging spring sniper rifles with an assault rifle Laughing maybe handguns are what your main focus is on, but if your really into Gas guns, you should take a look at some classics from Maruzen, JAC, Asahi, Tanio Koba, etc.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! Very Happy
Quite a cool board you have here! I should probably sign up on Airsoft Barracks as well, since there seems to be a lot of good gas tech discussions there as well. But still, this board is quite cool and I think I'll have a lot of fun here.

And Pearldrummer, I have actually owned one classic before... well, it was a neo-classic I guess. It was an Escort MP5A5 A-Spec and externally speaking it was the most perfect replica of an MP5 I've ever had the pleasure to handle. Unfortunately though I never got around to buying a CO2 rig for it and finances became very tight at one point so I ended up selling it before I ever had a chance to use it.

My general opinion in classics is that they are quite cool and probably a lot of fun to shoot, I'm really more drawn to the modern GITM (gas in the mag) system replicas. When I skirmish I run an extremely light weight loadout with a TT MAV rig so I just never found a good place to stash a CO2 tank on the rig. I mean, I could just shell out extra $$ for the X-Harness system and a hydration carrier, but I guess I've just never been that drawn to classics in general. For now I'm just going to stick with the plan of getting a WA M4 CQB-R for my long arm fix and keep my fingers crossed that the mags won't really be $90 each. $60 or $70 each I could live with, but if they are really $90 each I'll probably just end up with a few more pistols instead of the M4.


But anyway, I'm babbling again (as I so often do) so I'll wrap this up and just say thank you again to everyone for the warm welcome! Great board you guys have here and I'll be looking forward to lots of great gas gun related discussions Smile
