Where can I get a decent Airsoft AEG Rifle for under $50?

I'm looking a decent Airsoft AEG Rifle for no more than $50. I know that $50 is a very low budget, but I only want this for small games with a couple friends in backyards/woods. Low FPS is fine. Only real requirement (besides it being an AEG rifle) is that it doesn't fall apart right as I get it. The only thing I've been able to find is a Crosman Pulse R71/R73, and both seem to have poor build quality, therefore a little over priced. Thanks a bunch!

Your opinion on this DOWNGRADE of and airsoft gun ?!?

Hi ... as usual my another airsoft rifle is to powerful for the site rules. Because it's NEW, iw ould like to avoid open it and the gear box as well and change the spring. Or to clip the spring. What about to make a small hole in the valve that is pushing the BB in the barrel ??? With those small/fine drill bits (0.3 - 0.6 mm) ??? That should make the pressure smaller, you wouldn't have to fight with the spring and it would be cheaper to replace it ?!?! Do I see it to optimistic or do you think it could work ??? Thanks ...

Question by nerfer   |  last reply


Today I was shooting some targets with my SRC M16A3. All of a sudden, during a full auto burst, the gun stopped firing. Now, whenever I pull the trigger, I here this terrible whirring sound like a power drill, and the gun does not fire. I check the battery. Then, I tried to adjust the motor height, and that didn't do anything. I removed the motor from the grip to see if anything was wrong with it, and it is totally intact. Can somebody please explain to me how this problem can be fixed with minimal internal gearbox work? Because it is a sportline type gun, I don't feel that overhauling the gearbox with reinforced components would be worth the money or labor. I have a bad feeling that the bevel gear or piston may be stripped, and don't want to deal with the hassle of replacing, shimming, and re-lubricating all of the gears.

Where can I get a decent Airsoft Electric AEG Pistol for under $50?

I'm looking for a decent Airsoft AEG pistol for under $50. I realize that for the same price I could get a much nicer spring one. but right now I'm looking for an electrical one. FPS can be low, I don't need things like blowback. It just can't absolutely suck and fall apart in a week. Thanks!

How do I build an airsoft gun?

             I want to play airsoft, but all of the guns that are relatively cheap seem pretty crappy, and all of the good guns are really expensive.  Thus, I want to build my own AEG with the following specifications:  Full/semi auto capability; hop-up; and 100-200 foot range.  I saw the basic inner workings of one in the comments on an airsoft instructable, and it looks like something I could do.  Any help with machining ideas, parts suppliers, and detailed plans are welcome.  Thanks!

Airsoft Megastore not safe?

When I open Airsoft on google chrome, put something into my cart, then hit checkout, Chrome says the site is not safe to input valuable or personal information to. This got me thinking as to why it wouldnt be safe. No security protection against hackers? Or has it been hacked and if I input my credit card info will they be able to steal my info? I just dont want anyone getting ahold of my credit card info and buying stuff... Is ASM a trustworthy site, and Chrome just has a glitch or something that is causing the site to be deemed 'unsafe'? Or is it all a scam? This dillema has stopped me from buying a gun during their black Friday Doorbuster Deals, which was a great deal. Oh well better safe than sorry I guess. Thanks

Help wiring a toggle switch??

Hi there, i need some advice on how to wire a toggle switch between a battery voltage monitor and a battery so that I can switch the monitor on and off as required. My problem is that i need to pass 4 seperate wires through the toggle switch however I do not know enough about how a toggle switch works to achieve this. Here is a video that shows what I am trying to achieve;;=feedlik This is a voltage monitor for a lithium polymer battery for use on an Airsoft Electric Gun (AEG) the battery is stored inside a plastic box ,which is shown below, and i would like to insert the voltage monitor inside the plastic box with a toggle switch for turining it on and off I have some pictures attached to show what exactly it is I am using and to hopefully explain more clearly. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated as I am at a loss about how to approach this.

Does anyone know anything about this typewriter interface?

The typewriter is an AEG Olympia ES-95i. It's a big beige electronic machine from maybe the late 70s or early 80s.On the back there is a 20 pin rectangular male connector with 2 rows of 10 pins. If I connect random pins with something metal, it types various characters. I'm wondering if anybody knows what kind of interface this thing might use so I can go about connecting it to my computer.EDIT1:I've found a bit more random information about this type of device which might help: Olympia made another typewriter in the same line that was basically the same as a bytewriter model. Irritatingly the article says the bytewrite provides no technical information "other than the pin-out assignments for the connector. "It would appear from the rest of the article that the connector might be some kind of modified centronics interface.I'll try to get a picture up soon.EDIT2:Here's the photo. Whatever it is I hope it turns out to be bidirectional so I can use this as a tty :).

calling "real" airsoft players

When i say airsoft for "reals" i mean not springers unless it is a high quality sniper rifle. and by high quality i mean 250 for stock gun and 800 dollars more in upgrades... just wondering, anyone else rock AEG's, gas pistols, sniper rifles?.. etc.... familiar with brands like tokyo marui, classic army, ics, g&g, tanaka, western arms, etc etc. also... not playing in parks, backyards... in the house. or places that will ruin the sport by getting shot to death by cops. even if it does have an orange tip, cops come anyways when they're called. and yes they are ready to blast you away if they feel their life is in danger... legally too. i would know. personal experience which was years ago. by no means am i bashing people.. im not saying that playing with springers is not okay, i understand not everybody has the time or money. its just i noticed a lack of any airsoft instructables for those serious about the sport?... and yes i've spent well into the thousands for the sport, no i dont think its a waste of money, i have a lot of fun doing my thing.
