Default As far as BB Guns go, who is the overall better manufacturer?

Between UTG and KWA. Which is Better, im deciding to get a BB gun or two, and I came across a UTG M4 RIS, with out the ACOG, it had an RDS instead. The KWA was a KWA KM4A1 Carbine. Dont know which one is better betwen these two and these two only. I found them at airsplat.com.

KWA Hands Down! They are Unbelievably good. Go to Evike and get the Lipo battery package with it. There expensive guns but there worth it. I have a UTG MK96 but all the parts have been switched to PDI probably around 700 FPS with a .2gram bb. And be careful of airsplat, its a sketchy site. Evike or Airsoftgi is alot better company.

Yeah... Looking at reviews about airsplat.... Dont buy from them, either your gun will show up broken or parts will be missing. At least Airsoft gi and Evike test your guns and make sure they work properly before they ship them out to you. Say no to Airsplat!

Ok this has been on my mind for some time now. What in the heck does one do with a airsoft gun? What is the point of them? Little 6mm bb's in plastic....? or 7mm something like that. What do you guys do with them that is fun? Curious. I see kids with them all the time and wonder. Can't be for hunting obviously...and not for shooting each other...so what then?

Its the same concept as Paintball. Usually 2 teams, and you shoot at eachother until 1 team is eliminated. You have to use the honor system though since there really is no way of telling that you hit someone, unless they say "OW" or something. I have a sniper with a scope though, so I can see the bb hit them. Its fun, go for it! I just play with my friends, but some people take it wicked seriously, decked out in full camo and such.

Yeah, some people do take it wicked seriously. They dress up like they're in the millitary, or SWAT.But im just here for the fun with my friends. although my friends need a lot better guns. Hahaha. Also DarkFire989 thanks for the heads up. I never would've known anything about Airsplat.com and how bad they were. So it looks like its KWA.

I was taught at a young age to never point guns at people. lol. If I point a gun at someone there is a good chance that person will not be with us anymore. I would only point a gun at someone who threatened my family's life so I guess thats out for me. My kids as well. Raise em right and accidents will be less likely to happen.

Thats the point of an airsoft gun. To be able to shoot someone without killing the or seriously hurting them. Most airsoft guns will only leave a welt but I have seen airsoft guns break skin. Its also something that you can shoot around your house. Ever tried shooting a real gun at your house? Police show up within 20 mins because of neighbors.

Hmmm, now instead of UTG and KWA, What about UTG, KWA, Classic Army, and Echo 1? Out of the four, which is the best? List them in order if you can.

700 FPS?!? Wow, that's major damage.

The official teams here only allow like 4 or 5 hundred FPS for AEG and like 5 or 6 hundred for snipers.
Then they have all these ROE too, like how far you have to be to shoot, etc.

Go for it. Get the barrel extension on the bottom of the page to make it look sweet.

Ok, will it make it any better? Like more accuracy or FPS or range?

It might give it a little bit more range and accuracy.
