for a While I have been using a cheap spring pistol form dicks sporting goods as my sidearm but now I am looking into a GBB. I am on a tight budget so most of the pistols by TM are out. Does anyone know of a good GBB or brand in general? My budget is about 70-80$.

One more note; I am going to a new airsoft store near me to buy the pistol, as I live in NJ and I can't have pistols shipped to me from retailers. I haven't been there yet so I don't know what to expect, but I have seen youtube videos of them and they look alright.

I have the WG 1911 sport. It isn't gbb, but it does 500fps! It's got an adjustable hopup, pretty accurate, but the mags are like $25 each.....at least on eBay with free shipping. I paid $54 for it, but my friend bought two new and sold one to me, otherwise it's $60 on eBay.

Can it be shipped from ebay? Again, I live in NJ Where retailers can't ship airsoft pistols to. I don't know if ebay people can.

Why should I avoid those two kinds of pistols? I have almost zero experience with pistols, only the rifles.

Alright. Any estimate in cost for when I go to see if they have them?

Then I might have to get something cheaper depending on what they have. Like I said in the first post, my budget is sort of low. I also don't really need to upgrade it too much. The max range I will be using it is probably 150 feet. I also have my bar10 as my primary.

WE 1911's are [email protected] I don't know about the others (Glocks, M9..) but avoid them.
KJW are TM clones plus you can buy for them CO2 mags, they are full metal and they don't have trades but are decent.
TM's are great right out of the box but they are plastic and a bit expensive( not as much as WA's) and the good metal kits for them are over $240 (Guarder kits are not that good and take a bit of work in order to fit).

So I went to the store, but they didn't have that many pistols. I saw a few KJW but they were 140$. I didn't have that kind of budget so I cheaped out and got a KWC Sig Sauer P226 for 85$. It's not plastic, but not metal either, more of an alloy type thing. I tried it out and it shoots about 20 feet before they curve down so I have to figure out how to open the darn thing to clean the bucking. Yes, I know cyber gun is a cheap-o company, but It's still better than my last spring pistol.

Update: I just gave up on opening it and cleaned the barrel with the bucking still on it with a gun cleaning patch and rubbing alcohol. It got a little improvement but after a few shots went back to the way it was before. Seems like something is wrong with the bucking. My shots are also shooting wildly to the left and right at random. I might have to return it and save up for a while until I can get something better.(Enter key broke pretend this is a new paragraph.) Edit: I was shooting it again and suddenly I hear rattling inside the slide so I immediately stop. I take off the slide to have a small metal pin an a random plastic piece fall out. I have no idea how to get it back together and I have no intention oef getting it fixed. Now I have a reason to get a refund.

Yes, I know, tripple post, it's my thread. So I think I might actually be able to get a pistol off of evike because I just remembered reading something that said they ship to any of the lower 48. Do any of you recommend a specific KJW pistol that's 100$ or under from evike? So really what I'm asking is, tell me what I should get. ;)

Looks like a great gun. Because i'm about as newbie as they come when talking about pistols, if evike does sell pistols to NJ I'll try to get that one. Looks about as realistic as possible and can use CO2 too. Very nice pistol.

Just to make sure, all kjw pistols accept the TM upgrades? Like I can put a nineball bucking in there and it will work fine? That is if I use a dry gas. I might just use the propane adapter or CO2 so the silicone in the green gas doesn't mess up the bucking, or will it mess it up?

If I were you and had a <$120 budget, I would browse your local forums and hold out for a used pistol that has been treated well. I picked up a like new KWA USP for $100, and they run about $160 new.

I just have this thing against buying used things. I've had some bad experiences with ebay, and no matter how much I trust the people I'm buying it from, I try to stay away from non-official companies.
