Airsoft help

Post by AnonONIagent on Fri Aug 05, 2016 12:54 pm

So lately I've been looking into getting into airsoft as a hobby. However, I need help choosing what gun I want to get. I've decided I want a SCAR-L, or Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle-Light, made by the Belgian arms manufacturer Fabrique Nationale Herstal. Unfortunately, I cannot decide which brand of SCAR-L I would like to buy. The two weapons I am considering are as follows:

Classic Army FN SCAR-L CQC - $199.99
PROS

  • Comes with a magazine
  • Higher FPS
  • More true-to-life cheekrest


CONS

  • Upper receiver may or may not be metal like the real gun (I can't tell)
  • Does not come with a battery
  • Battery compartment access requires use of an allen wrench



Cybergun/Softair FN SCAR-L - $189.99
PROS

  • Full metal upper receiver just like the real gun
  • Toolless battery compartment access
  • May or may not come with a vertical handgrip


CONS

  • Inaccurate cheekrest design
  • Does not come with a magazine
  • Does not come with a battery
  • Slightly lower FPS


So, any thoughts on which I should buy?

My husband is really into airsoft so I asked him and he said he would recommend you go to a store that sells airsoft rifles and hold various rifles. It would be best because you can get a feel for them. Hold it up to your body, whatever mask/goggles you use will affect the way you are able to aim the rifle. If you have a rifle that requires a Allen wrench on the field you are screwed (a backup weapon would be desirable in that situation). You might also want to consider AEG vs gas blowback vs compressed air depending on you style of play. AEG is probably most versatile because weather can effect performance of rifle. Just some things to think about.

Problem is, I'm not sure there's any place near me that sells airsoft guns. I don't drive, and my parents will only be willing to go so far for something as frivolous as an airsoft gun.

As for the type of gun, an AEG is what I'm looking to buy. The simulated action and recoil of a gas blowback rifle is certainly neat, but a gas blowback rifle is well outside of my budget. A gas blowback H&K USP pistol will likely be my sidearm after I've purchased my rifle, though.

You know what, I think I'm gonna save my pennies a bit longer and get the VFC SCAR-L CQC. That one has a full metal upper receiver, proper cheekrest design, has toolless battery access, and comes with a magazine. So outside of costing an extra $70, it has pretty much everything I want out of an airsoft SCAR.
