Real guns are in much higher demand than airsoft guns, so it would make sense that if you want comparable quality, you gotta spend way more.This gun seems pretty solid, there's some Japanese dude on IG I know, and he's loving his. Probably 20k in that thing easy, and he says it's fine.
Imo airsoft companies like G&G, VFC, and G&P really need to step up their shit. I saw a Combat Machine for $290. Poly body, probably somewhat lame parts, and didn't look cool. This gun was $240 since we got the long version, has a cool FET, has a cool body, decent hop, and overall seems pretty dang competitive. Just can't imagine paying $600 for a pot metal body when an actual AR-15 receiver set is $100 and is made of forged 7075 or CNC 6061 aluminum. Just disappointed with airsoft generally, it's so expensive and it's made of absolute garbage. Idk how a decent shotgun can be sold for $200 from Turkey, but you can't get a decent M4 for that much. Ridiculous.
Also, this thread is only a day or two old, so you're good.
