I ordered my ACOG from Airsoft World and although it did arrive the next day, the reticule wasn't straight. It looked like someone had twisted it about 10 or so degrees clockwise.

So I emailed them to ask if there was anything I could do to fix it and I got a reply saying, "There probably is, but you shouldn't have to, send me your original order number and I'll arrange for a new one to be shipped out"

To this I asked how I'd get the broken one back to them and gave them my order number, then I never heard from them again, apart from a week later they emailed me to ask if I'd add a review of the scope to their site.

In the end I managed to sort the problem out myself and I did post a review for them and they have generally been helpful with my enquiries regarding the WE L85A2 but yeah. From my single buying experience I'm not sure what to make of them.

    Looking for a full sized rifle AEG when I get my VCRA.

  • Loadouts: British DPM, German Flecktarn, DPM Webbing, Boots, Loads of other stuff.

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



Thats good fo newbies, I dont think. Is it trademarks and copyright linked or just plain draconian laws of the kind we have heer?

Fairly disappointed with AirsoftWorld ordered my full metal M4 near on a month ago and still yet to receive it. Yes I did pay the extra £10 for 2-Tone and it's STILL 5th in the que which it has been for a week. I was expecting it to be maybe a week added to the shipping giving them time to paint it but 3 and a half weeks is getting a bit to much.. Emailed them and yet to receive a reply. An even once it's painted I'll probably have to wait the standard 7-11 days for it to be delivered. Making it around 2 months... :(

I asked them if they could order in a magazine for me and they replied more or less instantly and said "will do. We have already DHL'd it". However, that was 5 weeks ago and I haven't heard anything since. So, I asked what was going on with it and they deleted my post :(  The only bad experience with Airsoft world so far.

I've ordered a few things from them and been pretty happy.

 

However things didn't run 100% smoothly when I had to return a Mac10 with a broken fire selector switch. I emailed AW about it and the guy who replied implied I had broken the switch when I had already explained that it was clearly done during shipping. He also said he would sort out the return the next day but he didn't do a thing. I waited a week before ringing them and to be fair as soon as I spoke to them on the phone they were great and the problem was resolved.

 

I just think that an online retailer should be able to sort out problems online. It can't be that difficult surely?

 

I would definitely order from them again.

I ordered a G&G H&K 416 from them the other day, arrived the next day. Simples.

 

This thread does seem to suggest they have a somewhat inconsistent rep though, at first I thought they were quite bad, but over time I've grown to see them as one of the top shops. This is without even ordering from them particularly often. The 416 was the first gun I ever ordered from them.  

 

I think a lot of their positive publicity comes from Scoutthedoggie and co praising them all the time, the reality might not be quite so positive.

Problem is half the people here are saying they are emailing / or using FB to communicate.

Always ring. Emails are always easy to misplace, and FB is just silly if you want to get something important done :L

 

Ordered my 226 from them no hassle. Most recent order was for Green Gas and 1 had a faulty nossle and wouldn't transfer gas. Was rectified pretty quickly.

Agreed ringing is a far better option over FB.

 

I've never got on with their website, reckon they'll redo anytime soon?

I had assumed he had already called or something, so I thought FB is the last choice really.

Saying that, just made an order and gave the wrong shipping address. 

Managed to sort it out 2 hours after their closing time via FB :P

My brother got me a TM MP7 for my birthday after the gearbox shot to pieces and exploded i spoke to them and sent it back. After a quick repair i paid £20 to have it returned to me next day delivery for the GZ weekender and paid £6 for a pistol hop rubber. This was on wednesday. Got home from the weekender and phoned them up and they said the guys have been at war and peace so it wasnt sent. Did t arrive the next day phobed up again and they forgot to book thebcourier. Wednesday comes and it arrives without the hop rubber i paid for. Tried to chase them up but no response. So i paid £26 for a week long delivery....well done AW

I've used Airsoft World to buy a few things. They charge alot for delivery (£7?) but it comes next day every time. Their customer service leaves a lot to be desired, when I emailed them about a problem they didn't reply for about two weeks. I phoned them in the end and spoke to a guy who made me feel an inch tall because my problem was 'a simple fix' to him. Definitely not my first resort for stuff, but the website is good, and they have a few good items.

I wished I had read this review before placing my rifle order with them.

When I called them to enquire about delivery terms, the guy was rather rude and had a bit of a "can't be arsed" attitude.

 

When I said the purchase would be for a £350 AEG he suddenly sprang to life, but by then it was too late, suffice to say I made my purchase elsewhere.

Good for you.

Voting with your wallet is the only way these companies will up their game.

Ive spent a lot of money on gear since that rifle purchase and none of it has gone in their direction.

If they had taken a bit more care with phone calls and responses in that encounter, they could have made a lot more money.
