Starting up in airsoft

http://www.airsoftgi.com/mobile/prod...ducts_id=10378

Link is to KWA CQR MOD2. That a good gun? My friend has one, says its a great quality starter gun, with descent expansion options.

I haven't played airsoft before, but it looks fun. Always had fun doing AF training with real m-16s and blanks, and I grew up loving paintball. I simply can't afford paintball, and airsoft looks a ton cheaper.

ICS make high quality guns at great prices.. check out www.d3fysports.com
they have some of the best prices and offer a 6 month warranty which is unheard of in airsoft., plus they throw in extra magazines and an upgraded barrel on all of their guns..

Nice lookin guns! But what benefits are there in spending the additional $40 or so between the KWA CQR MOD2 and ICS IMT-020-1 (in terms of gearbox, barrel, attachments, etc...). I was primarily looking at sub $200 guns. But if enough benefit to it, I may consider an extra $40.

The KWA will be better than the ICS. The KWA uses better internals and externals, and won't need any upgrades for quite a while. Just get a decent 7.4v LiPo battery and that's it. KWA guns just shoot excellent out of the box and as long as you don't go and mess with them they'll perform reliably for a long time.

Here's a review of the Matrix:
Pros:
1) full metal
2) solid internals and or gearbox
3) lipo ready
4) accurate
5) good rate of fire
6) good trigger response with 9.6 and 11.1v batteries
7) clean lines/ no cheap seams
8) bang for your buck

Cons:
1) front pin is so tight takedown is impossible.. Might just be mine
2) no front sight adjustment tool
3) handgaurd/ front sight have a slight wobble
4) hop-up is very particular and sensitive

Other:
1) good for beginners who want to do no work, but also easily upgraded for little money to a high speed tournament gun (red dot sight, 407mm 6.01 tight bore, 190mm mock supressor to cover longer barrel, flip-up rear sight, matrix flashmag(s), aim tornado High speed motor, and aim bore-up cylinder upgrade kit(full cylinder)
2) crane stock is tight with a 3 piece crane stock battery.. I would go with a butterfly style or re-wire to the front

Matrix is the Evike brand. It's usually a JG or Cyma gun that they just rebrand in their name. Comparing Matrix vs KWA would leave you with KWA as a clear winner.

if anything go with a vfc or echo 1 platinum, There is alot of love out there for KWA, I do not share that love on there AEG market, I had a stock kwa that I purchased brand new that was nothing but headaches, I hate the fact that alot of the parts in the kwa are proprietary where as going with g and g, g and p or vfc you have reliability with the fact that you can still use most after market parts that your heart desires with out paying the hike that kwa puts on there oem parts!

The KWA CQR MOD 2 is a great gun! I own one and it shoots flawlessly, I have never had a problem with it. Regarding other brands I would just stick with KWA because I believe they are the most reliable brand in my opinion.

Don't fall into the fan boy sack rider of anything KWA if anything it's overpriced and a headache.

If you want something that is decently priced and you don't have to worry I would look at a G&G CMRaider16 or a M4 is what is basicaly is. price point is around 160 you can build it up but out of the box it will get to work for you.

How do I know this because I ordered 40 of them to replace the rental fleet of Elite force M4's which are horse **** and Umarex knows it.

Just some food for thought so you don't go spending an arm and a leg on something you will have to worry about

I have VFC. VFC much better externals. KWA is second to it.

Krytac is up and coming competitor. I am picking one up because there are good reviews on it.
