X just received his new gun from Evike G&P Full Metal Magpul PTS Custom CQB MOE Experimental Airsoft Carbine (Black). The link to it on Evike is: www.evike.com/products/33102/ Has anyone else received their G&P as show in the following picture? He said it had some paperwork in the package also that was all beat to crap due to the gun just rattling around in the box. I'm asking because I was considering ordering one tonight, but after seeing this and also hearing about the hopup, I'm a little concerned.
The story with the hopup is that X said that the adjustment wheel only rotates like 45 degrees. This is seriously less than what we are use to with the KWA's that we currently use. This also concerns me since I'm planning on R-Hopping this gun and it will make the install of an R-hop much harder if I have to be that super precise, due to not having a lot of adjustment. Is it possible that it is actually adjusting just as far, but just without as much precision as we are use to with the KWA's?
Airsoft isn't about being the fastest guy on the field, a guy with 99and1 kill ratio, or a being the dude with 1000's of dollars worth of guns and equipment on the field. It's all about having fun shooting other dudes who want to shoot you.
All of the G&Ps I have ever purchased new (3 or 4) came packaged like that. This includes my M733 and M4A1, both of which came from overseas. Basically a thin piece of foam on the bottom and top inside a cardboard box. The M16A2/M203 that I ordered from Evike came the same way. Maybe with some of those air-filled bags? I can also remember being a bit shocked by G&Ps shitty packing.
The G&P hop-ups in all but one of my G&Ps were garbage. I never noticed anything about the hop-up unit itself, but they never seemed to provide a good amount of hop-up.
I was just telling someone earlier today that I make it a point to replace all my G&P hop-up units with Prowins. Now, to be fair, a total replacement probably isn't needed so much as a replacement of the bucking and nub.
I added the bubble wrap in this photo, the rest is as shipped:
My M16A2/M203 as shipped. There might have been some paper work and the magazine was in a little cardboard box.
