    I'm looking for a good online retailer of good quality airsoft guns. Specifically, I've been trying to locate someone who sells the Tokyo Marui spring M92F. I'm not ready to buy a GBB or AEG gun yet. I'd also consider something other than Tokyo Marui, but everything I've read suggests that the Japanese guns are the best.

    Links welcome!

    Actually, the pistol selling for $34 is an electric blowback (EBB), which is in no way comparable to a real springer. The one you want is at the bottom of the page for $30.

    What's the difference between the electronic blowback and the spring operated one? (besides $4)

    Dang - just followed the link... some of those custom airsoft are as much or more than the real weapons!

    An EBB uses AA batteries and a motor to drive a piston forward propelling a BB (much like their big AEG brothers). The difference between that and a springer is that the EBB is significantly lower powered, the entire slide doesn't really "blowback", and it uses a very simple magazine, not a full-sized one like the springers.

    Oh, and it sounds like an electric stapler when you fire it. :mad:

    Get the springer.

    I'd buy one of the KSC gas blow back M9s if I were you. They run right around $99. That was my first airsoft gun, pretty fun. Ended up selling it to help fund my AEG (a Marui Colt M733) though, pistols are about useless trying to play games with others who are using AEGs, lol.

    I see KSC makes a couple CZ clones, but does anyone know of a compact version of the CZ is available at somewhere under $150? I know many of the American shops only display a small percentage of the guns actually available.
