These guys have done a lot of shady things in the past and for me that's enough for me to never buy from them again even if they have the lowest prices around.
When they redesigned their website, they had this scavenger hunt promotion where they had deals that were insane that would go live between certain hours of the day. They had hundreds of stuff listed. Each day for a few days had a few items that were pennies on the dollar.
The only catch was there were very limited amounts and you had to keep on refreshing the web site because you never knew when the deal was going to go live.
They had hundreds of people (including me) on their web site hitting refresh as often as we could giving them all the web hits and traffic they wanted. I actually end up getting a small item. I wasn't fast enough to get the AEG deals. I paid them immediately.
A few days later they posted that all of the deals were voided, even the ones who were able to get the big ticket items. Their excuse was they didn't expect that much activity and didn't have any of the stuff in the quantities they said. The entire promotion was cancelled and a few days later they tried to appease the angry masses by offering them "deals" on cheap springer pistols and unwanted gear.
It was a classic bait and switch. These guys are crooked. Don't ever buy from them.

I have bought from AMS many times (as in 10-20 times) and have NEVER been disappointed. Their customer service is outstanding. While I could get better prices from Evike or ASGI, I can occasionally get a better price, and wouldn't hesitate for a single instant to order from them. They have my complete confidence. I say order from them. You will not be disappointed.
Though, it is true, most of their stuff is out of stock for a long time and they don't have the wide selection other places have, they do have an awesome customer service, and have never disappointed me. My brother bought a "certified pre owned" JG Bar-10 from them and it broke (it WAS pre owned), so he called them and they were very courteous on the phone to some guys who didn't know much about internals... anyway, they had us ship it back to them and they refunded us, even though it might have been out fault. Love AMS!
M.S. Arc, yes, that was the first time I had an issue with them, but other than that, I have never had any issues.
Fuck these guys. Called them out on saying "Free SMG with purchase over 100$!!" when the gun they include is an absolute garbage springer that probably costs less than $20.00. Deleted my post and banned me from posting on their shit on Facebook because I've called them out too many times on their scams/shitty posts. These guys are pathetic idiots who know nothing about airsoft and are only looking for peoples money.

Hey Myers seems like you have some personal issues behind your post. I have ordered numerous times from them and completely understand what their promos are and have never have an issue. If you click on their free promo it tells you exactly what it is. It says "CYMA Airsoft Mod. 5 Tactical Spring Rifle" and yes its worth $19.95 states that right there as well. Besides its a free item, they are not scamming you into paying $100 you already paying for your item and if you get a free item, hey cool. So i think you might want to do a little more research and think a little more before saying "you called someone out". And looking at your never karma on here and the way you talk I can see why they banned you. Anyway Happy Airsofting maybe i'll see you on the field on day and you can "call me out" haha.
Let me jump in here: In my experience, I've had a couple minor problems with megastore but nothing major. On my first order I got a JG G3, which was a total joke. However I've been scammed before, so I recorded the unboxing and the firing test as well (a precaution that's saved me 100's of dollars. I suggest it no matter where you order from.) When it reached my house there was no magazine, and a cracked stock. I sent them the footage, to which they replied "I'm sorry for your inconvenience with our store. We'll get back to you within 48 hours with either a shipping reimbursment or a free shipping label. We'll also be talking with UPS to see where the problem occurred. Thank you for your patience in this matter, it will be corrected quickly." To me, that's awesome. I received a free shipping label in the mail 3 days later. They gave me a full reimbursement for the gun, and then relisted it in the Previously owned category. I then reordered with no problems. Just take the extra precaution guys, record your orders. Video makes really damning evidence, no matter the circumstances.
I purchased a CYMA 035, I received the gun in a good amount of time and the gun is in great working condition. The only problem is the battery is 100% dead, will not take /hold a charge. So I messaged AMS about this and they asked me a few questions, I responded right away then 4 days later they open a ticket for me. Then they ask me the exact same questions, I answered them again. It has been 12 days now and still no response. I have sent 3 more emails, 2 to tech service and 1 to general service with out response.
I am not likely to give anymore business to these clowns.
My sales thread on reddit, piss off proboard dicks.
I ordered a grenade launcher when I first began airsoft from them, when it came it barely functioned like it should and I believe I emailed them but no response ever came. That is the only thing I have ever bought from them but I would steer clear judging by others experiences
