Now that I've decided on what gun I want to buy, (G&G Combat Machine Raider cqb) I'm hunting around the internet for good deals. Ebay seems to have some good deals, but I want to know if getting a used gun is a good idea. I don't want to waste a ton of money on a gun the doesn't work. So, have any of you guys bought used guns in the past? Thanks in advance for your input.

It's always good to inspect any item before purchase, if you can. Airsoft is an expensive hobby so often people might sell all their gear to just get out of it. Times like that you can find good gear for real cheap. But don't forget, unless you inspect it yourself, you're buying from a person. Make sure it's a person you trust.

I haven't had very many negative issues buying used guns. If you've never done it before, I'd recommend asking a friend who has prior experience to help you out or that you do the transaction in person. Most of the time I've gotten great deals buying used guns. The most common problem I've run into was that a lot of times the battery doesn't last very long or doesn't hold a charge but that's not too big of a deal if you've got other batteries.
