I don't normally use AW only if something I want is out of stock elsewhere.

I bought about 25 Thermo Barics from them a while back and 10-15 didn't light, turned out to be a problem with the way they were made. Was promised replacements, they never turned up.

I also ordered some green gas ready for a game a few weeks back, ordered Friday and paid for Saturday delivery. Didn't arrive and got an email back on the Monday saying it never even got posted. Pay their due though, they offered a full refund or another tin of gas free, instead they through in a 5000 bag of .2's to make up for it.

I buy my gear from Airsoftworld to and never had any problems.

P.S does anyone know why it seems to be really hard to buy AEGs online now as everytime i go to buy something they seem to be out of stock forever, Mainly AGM, CYMA, JG.

hi there i've heard that a lot of chinese clone factories got shut down as it's illegal to make replica weapons out there. when they got shut down the old bill over there took to moulds to make the guns

Nearly all of my gear has been from Airsoft World. Yes, their delivery can be expensive, but i have always recieved my gear very quickly, either next day or 2-day delivery. I would thoroughly reccomend using them!

Airsoft World are awesome.

I got my first AEG from them. I expressely requested it arrive by Sunday, ordering on a Thursday evening (I needed it for a game my friend was taking me to).

Friday morning they ring me to tell me that what I ordered is out of stock, but that for the same price they could ship me a roughly equivalent setup (all items same quality, just substitued for a different AEG) and could guarantee it would arrive Saturday by 9am.

It arrived the same evening.

Their shipping can be a little much, but if you call them I figure they'd work with you on getting an accurate shipping cost for you (website shipping is usually blanket fees for X item which fits Y box).

i'd never buy from them again bought a srcG36c from them it broke within 6 months of having it, it's only been used about 8 times.

I ending paying for it to be shipped back to them after they said that they'd cover the cost of it,

but they didn't even get intouch with me to tell me that it was fixed, they "forgot" to send me an e-mail, i waited over 2 weeks for a e-mail when in fact it was fixed within 5 days of me sending it back to them, and when i phoned up to pay them to return it to me and to complain they wern't arsed at about it an were very rude.

What I'd say is the general running is very good - site is easy to use, and postage is quick and efficient. However, god help you if you have a question, because they never answer their bloody emails.

And once they asked me to scan a copy of my driving licence to confirm my age -

(1) Whatever happened to using the electoral roll, like every other site does?
(2) Does that mean the last 5 times I ordered guns or pyro from them they didn't check?
(3) Added about a week to the order - apparently only one person is qualified to look at the scan, and they were out...

Generally, I'd encourage people to make enquiries over the phone when dealing with airsoft retailers in the UK - much easier and if you're ordering quite a lot of small bits, or just spending a lot in general, many places are willing to talk discount over the phone.

(Fire-support, zero-one and airsoft scotland have all previously offered me money off over the phone)

Interesting - over the phone has never worked for me - they'll always say "I have to check that, can I call you back", then never do. Trying to call again just puts you back to square one... maybe I've just been unlucky though.

On a side note, does anyone know the relationship between actionhobbies and airsoftworld? They seem to stock more or less the same products at the same time...

It tends to work better if you tell them what you want and ask them for a full price, then they give you a full price, and you realise you haven't got that much money to spend, and if you can't get all of the stuff you want, you might as well not order xD Then they'll start talking deals to make sure you order then and there.

I don't think there's a massive relationship; one is based in Scotland, the other in Milton Keynes. There IS some sort of relationship though; (oddly very petinently), I have previously called Airsoftworld (or as they were - airsoft scotland), and had stuff out of stock, and they've been able to sell me it at their price, but from ActionHobbies' warehouse and stock. That *was* about three years ago though, so things may have changed.

I've noticed that AirsoftWorld has, since then, majorly downplayed their Chinese stock levels...
