    Bleh. CA Crane stocks are trash. The clip on the buttplate of mine, the part that snaps into the stock itself, snapped off. Granted, there's still another clip on the opposite side...but it's not going to stay in as well. It's really always been shit though, the wobble is annoying. This just makes it worse.

    Time to get that CTR stock I've been eying, give my gun a smooth shim job, and invest in a Lipo.

    What do you mean by "work as replicas"? Airsoft guns are usually considered replicas since they are 1:1 scale with the real stuff.

    What?! I've got an airsoft replica M4, at a glance it looks exactly like the real thing. It even has a mock suppressor (not that you can tell it's mock from looks alone), real steel suppressors being illegal in California. I even play airsoft with some law enforcement officers, not even they have orange tips on their guns.

    California gun laws are ridiculous. Just treat your airsoft gun like a real gun. As long as your gun isn't seen anywhere outside your local airsoft field you'll be fine.

    http://www.socalairsoft.com/ca-airsoft-law/

    Minus the orange tip law as nobody follows that law anymore anyway. Now I'm not saying, "Just because nobody else follows that law you shouldn't eiter," but really. Nobody will give you shit about it on the field, and nobody will know about it if it's just in a gunbag in your home. Keep orange tape at hand or even a spare flash hider if need be.

    Edited:

    Oh, seems my post is irrelevant. Random CA airsoft gun laws 101 then.

    At your actual question: Yes, in short.

    From a discussion on my local board:
    http://modestocqb.com/node/422#comment-1378

    Me (Foos) posted:
    "BTW co2 pistols dont need to be maintained anymore then a regular green gas pistol. With my experience they work perfectly fine before and after everytime i use them and i treat them no different then my green gas pistol."

    This is incorrect in almost every way, CO2 has no lubrication put into it, making it the driest gas, which means you should be lubing it after every two weeks or so, if not then o-rings dry up and slides stick, etc.

    Unless you regularly maintain your gun when it's on green gas that is.
    some guy (ARES) posted:
    Well i guess your buying some cheap pistols because everyone that i have ever used and own have never had a problem with them. And i currently have 4 co2 pistols and 2 gas pistols and they all work fine and i do nothing to them
    :doh:

    He does say that he's not the only one using his pistols - perhaps his brother does more maintenance on the pistols than he's aware of?

    At that cheap my first question is, "how bad does it creak?" But hey, maybe it's not bad. As long as the externals are solid, nobody keeps their sniper rifle stock anyway.

    I still wouldn't buy a sniper rifle from them. Especially when theirs much better alternatives like the Bar 10/VSR 10 out there.

    Edit:

    an "airsoft expert" posted:
    Green gas and propane turn into a liquid which is one of the 3 states of matter if any of you airsoft jockies didnt know really fast but CO2 cartridges are compressed and you can get many clips out with one CO2 cartrige compared to the contstant reloading of green gas or propane after you've shot throught he whole clip. And the price is unbeatable for CO2 (i dont care Propane is cheap too). Also think about the mobility factor do you want to play carrying a huge propane bottle or green gas bottle or many small CO2s. Just listen to Ares and I and remember Foos "this isn't junior high!" so stop arguing and listen to the airsoft weapons specialist.

    I have a Jericho 941 CO2 pistol, non-blowback. I've had that for maybe a year or two, and I've never had to lube it or preform any maintenance on it. It still shoots the day it came out of the box, provided some paint is missing, but that happens in battle.

    I was kinda sad at first, because the first thing that popped up on the website was "Honoring a Fallen Soldier".

    TBH the media generally is scared of airsoft here in Canada. I've only seen one or maybe two other stories about airsoft in Canada. Its hardly even legal to own a airsoft gun.

    That guy is so wrong and ignorant that I want to club him to death with a LAW.

    How the flying fuck are states of matter relevant? If anything, they PROVE your point Dark, CO2 doesn't come out as a liquid (after a few shots), which makes it one of the driest gasses! Propane and green gas come out as a vapor of varying thickness, especially when silicone is added (Which it is in green gas, and which i should be in propane if you know what you're doing) which keeps the gun lubricated to some extent.

    Co2 is a much higher pressure gas that doesnt have silicone added to it. This means that it is a VERY dry gas, and you Co2 guns will need to be lubricated on a regular basis. The reason you get so many shots is because Co2 is at such a high pressure in the powerlets. These high pressures result in shorter overall gun life, but much higher power.


    As for price, you best be trolling if you think Co2 is cheaper than propane.

    Co2 powerlets cost roughly 50 cents each, and holds 12 grams of gas.
    A 14oz can of propane costs 3 dollars and holds roughly 380 grams of gas.

    Basic math will tell you that you are wrong.













    Someone post that on that forum before I smash my computer with a hammer *rage*

    He was a grown guy, about in his twenties. So I'm assuming he worked his ass off to get it.
    Yeah, 3500 dollars isnt really that much to spend on a hobby, especially for an adult. Most hobbies cots much more than that.

    Airsoft is actually a REALLY cheap hobby compared to most things.

    Well I'm curious, what are you planning on doing with this replica? I live in California, and let me tell you, so long as you are responsible, and smart, it doesn't matter what you own. As an owner of both airsoft and real-steel guns, you need not worry about getting caught, or legality issues as long as you don't do something retarded.

    Well yeah, as long as you're not doing anything stupid with said firearm/replica, it isn't a problem. As someone who owns.. Less than legal firearms in the state of California, I can speak from experience saying that as long as you are careful/responsible, no trouble should come your way.

    1) Wear polo shirt.
    2) Wear bikini girl tee as an undershirt.
    3) Remove polo shirt after hours.

    That's how I got away with the dress code at my HS.
