    It would be perfect for a Israeli Defense Force loadout though, especially for that price. Even if it was terrible, twenty bucks is okay for a few uses.

    Damn. Looked pretty good for the price. I think I should invest in a CIRAS.

    Please do not buy that one. Every single pouch on there is sewn into the vest. You won't be able to customize it at all. It tries to copy the look of a Maritime CIRAS, but does a very bad job at it. The adjustments aren't true to the real CIRAS either, as they should be internal. Plus the color is way off and just doesn't look good. I've seen kids use these in person and it looks awful, you should have heard what my teammates say about them.

    The cheapest CIRAS I could recommend is this one. My friend just bought one and he loves it.

    Ah. Glad I did not order it then.

    And I was looking at that vest! Just wasn't sure if it was worth the $109.

    On a side note, my new gloves got shipped today, so I should expect those in the mail in the next few days. Woohoo.

    I just contacted flecktarn.co.uk since their CIRAS has been out of stock for a while now, and I got this:

    Dear Ryan

    I'm sorry, the CIRAS is being superseded by a new vest which is a non-releasable MOLLE armour carrier with largely the same features as the CIRAS, but has an upgraded design.

    The new vest and further details are expected to be available by the end of July.
    I'm definitely excited to see the new design. Slightly saddened by the fact that it's non-releasable, but I'm still looking forward to it.

    How is Redwolf Airsoft? I'm a bit nervous about ordering anything out of country as I'm fearful of Customs taking my package. Additionally, there is no phone number to contact them, only an electronic form.

    Edited:

    Also, I'm not holding my breath that my Tavor will come. It's my first choice, beautiful, practical and elegant but I may not be able to get it.

    These are my other options, the Tanaka being the first in the running and from then on most want to least want.

    Tanaka M870 Shotgun Marine Magnum.


    That is not the Marine Magnum, but it's the same gun for all intent and purposes only with a black finish rather then chrome. The chrome isn't all that great, I'd prefer black but the only place that sells the Tanaka M870 I want is redwolf (cheaper then my Tavor too) and they only have chrome. My searches are fruitless elsewhere. I'd get a shell catch for my shells, this is a fun play around possible CQB weapon.

    The G&G GR-300 (Long or Short, not sure which I want. Most likely long.)

    A&K sells one too but I wouldn't trust it. G&G make decent guns from my understanding. This thing is like an M4 but not, so I won't have too much trouble with repairs and tune-up as well as being able to find abundant replacement part and upgrades.

    The G&G Combat Machine

    Same as above, only more generic. Alittle cheaper with a neat blow-back function that I could take or leave. Not a fan of the stock, I'd probably buy a full stock to replace it with, although that may require me to open it up and re-wire it and that's always a bitch. Alternately, the option for a GR-16 A3 is there too, it costs more, has no blowback but it is full metal and include a full stock. (Pictured below)


    Echo 1 M249

    Basically like the Tanaka, only slightly more practical. I always had this fascination with this gun, but I never got it because A. They were too expensive at the time and B. It's not all that fun to lug around a SAW. Even so it's a neat gun, you can feel like a bad ass and it's playable, the only problem is I would want to be on a squad as using this thing in a free for all game would fuck me up.

    Edited:

    Or my TAR 21 comes and I'm thrilled. Either way I have to cover my bases. I want to go to the prom with a different dress then usual, so those M4's only have function going for them in this running and appreciation.

    Edited:

    Ah. Glad I did not order it then.

    I got the gloves from Weapon Blender. But I've heard things about EBairsoft. Minor things like shipping time are what people complain about. They don't realize it takes a couple weeks to get from Hong Kong to America. But hey, at least it's free.

    And Redwolf Airsoft is a very good site.

    It's weird what Weapon Blender does. They only ship out on weekdays, and they charge a flat rate of $4.75 for shipping and handling. Now, with said, they say that depending on the size or quantity of what you ship, determines who it's shipped by (UPS or USPS). So when I ordered on Friday, it didn't go out till yesterday (Monday). I know it was a holiday weekend, so I understood why it took long.

    To add to my growing pile of inquiries, does anyone know if it's possible to buy a upper receiver for a P90 with the red-dot on it? I've been looking but haven't seen one.

    All you have to worry about now is that they sent the right thing as you ordered it. Not to worry you though, I'm always pessimistic about my orders.

I've always had this thing since I got my P90 telling me I made a mistake getting rails, just morbidly curious if I could get a new upper receiver with the red-dot or the red-dot that would fit into the one you linked.

    Identity do you have an opinion on a secondary option in the likely event I don't get my Tavor?

    My secondary? Hmm. Well you have the Combat Machine listed.

    Now, I also like the SAW, but seeing how we wear the same gear and all, I'm going to say you should pass. It's an awesome gun, but lugging that around, with as much gear and heat, would more than likely make you miserable.

    Back to the G&G. I have the customized version (as most of you know) and Ender has it as well, and my opinion of it fits pretty well pertaining to what our guns have in common. They are solid, lightweight, but with the same feeling as holding a full metal.

    Also, have you thought about buying an M14 EBR? Would be great for a Army Marksmen loadout. Just a suggestion.

    So with that said, from what you have listed, I'd go with the G&G. Can be dropped from eight or nine feet with no damage, durable, reliable, great for customization, etc.

    Actually thinking of it now, see if you can pick up a G4 Custom. Those are upgraded G&G's for an awesome price.

    The SAW would go with the loadout, but you're right heavy. G&G combat machine would be the safe bet, and the GR-300 would be the unique one to go for.

    All around I want to wait for more feedback. I really have my heart set on that shotgun. It's one of those "It looks so cool but I'll never use it" things. Like buying a convertible in Alaska.

    That thing is ugly as hell and dumb.

    I -could- use the shotgun. I can get a Shell Catch from a Sporting Good store so I don't lose shells and make it practical. The only problem is that I don't play Indoor games so I don't have any reach with my gas-powered shells. It's just a fun, play around, knock around, badass thing.

    The G&G's and Echo 1 are alot more practical but those aren't guns you really want when you're going through your Airsoft Mid-life crisis like I am.

    Hug?

    Sooner or later they'll come in. If I were you I'd wait. If you have a gun that functions for now, then I'd just wait till you hear the call that they're back. I know that's highly unrealistic, but hey, you never know.

    That's true. That's a very true statement. Especially since I still regret (and continue to bitch about) getting rails on my P90 purely because most people told me it was better.

    Edited:

    As for the Tavor, I called ASGI and they said to wait a month for an ETA but this order is time sensitive. IE: I can't wait more then a month, I've already wasted alot of time chasing rabbits down the rabbit hole.

    I'm probably going to get the shotgun because I have an M15 that is perfectly fine and with a few upgrades it could be shooting better then it did when I first got it.

    I dislike AK's I think they're boring and ugly.

    Edited:

    I also consider it this way;

    The shotgun is $500 with shells, almost $600 with express delivery (I'm not going to wait a month to get this from Hong Kong, I'd die from nervous shock)

    The G&G CM, A&K G300 are both under $300 so they're attainable if I were to save my money or the faithful day when I get a job.

    I can order upgrade parts sometime in the near future for a pretty decent price on my M15.


    The only thing I'm concerned about is customs seizing my gun.

    The price tag is why I believe I can wait, that's not so bad to save up too in a month or two.

    The shotgun on the other hand is really expensive and all things considered, I'm not spending the money so it'd be neat.

    Edited:

    I got the okay for it. I'll order it tomorrow, I still need to consider. Most likely going to get ten blue shells and a pack of five madbull shells for it.

    Anyway, last confirmation, Redwolf is good to go?

    Redwolf is ok to order from, just expect expensive shipping on guns.

    As for the marushin shells, I'm not sure if they will work. Tanaka shells hold gas inside the shells, while I seem to recall the marushin held gas inside the stock and the shells only held bbs. Best bet is to check Youtube videos on both brands and see how they are loaded.

    I think I'm going to go back on this concept at the last second. I can only find Madbull shells for this thing and shipping is almost a hundred bucks. Ontop of it all it's a pretty impractical gun for me.

    Ender, you have a Combat Machine, right? How hard do you think it would be to put a full stock on that?

    I'd say about 5 minutes of work. Not that hard to open the buffer tube with a hex key and unscrew the bolt holding the tube to the body, then attaching the solid stock.

    Now rewiring the battery to a full stock, that's a different story. I think mechbox.com had a guide on how to do this if your gun is already wired to the front.

    Ehh, god this is hard choice. It's like buying a new car. The process of ordering that shotgun along with how impractical it is doesn't make me want it as much.

    I hate LE stocks so I'm not big on that the Combat Machine although it is incredible I hear, especially for that price.

    Going to order upgrade parts regardless for my CA.

    M249 is too much.

    So it's a neck and neck battle between either the G&G/A&K GR300 or Combat Machine.

    So this is my roundup to my knowledge so far;

    A&K G300
    * Full Metal Body. Solid Gun.
    * I like the looks, it pleases me to look at it.
    * Folding Stock is a neat touch.
    * High FPS (400FPS out of the box) FPS does not make a gun but considering I play on unregulated fields and that it will wear down over time it's pretty nice)
    * Includes battery and a few other neat items for a all around nice package.

    The G&G Combat Machine:
    * It's G&G, nuff said.
    * Neat blowback function.
    * Slightly larger battery compartment
    * Tough, durable body and build
    * Decent internals and externals out of the box with a good FPS
