Just go for whatever takes your fancy. If you like it, you'll enjoy using it no matter what.

I understand; to be honest if there's one glaring downside with airsoft guns in general it's reliability. More expensive guns will have higher quality parts, but even the best break down. There are literally thousands of forum threads, youtube videos and web reviews you can trawl through before making a purchase (as I seem to spend a lot of time doing!) but your own experiences will inevitably be...just that.

The Tokyo Marui series of guns, in particular the hi-capa, have spare parts to replace literally everything that may fail - and that applies to the clones like WE etc, so they're a good bet in the long run. I had a TM hi-capa that I used regularly for nearly 6 years - replacing bits as and when they wore out and broke.

It's very frustrating - I've had shotguns and air rifles/pistols that have been decades old and never ever skipped a beat, yet no one seems able to make an airsoft gun that can last. But so long as you buy expecting to fix it at some point, I guess it's all part of the fun.

Enjoy Smile

pretty much this - just be wary of electric pistols -they tend to suck - gas all the way - although i seen people using 300fps springers (super quiet compared to most gas pistols) with ruthless efficiency ^^

just see what style u like e.g glock hi caps and get one ^^
