its more lack of UKARA, and customs keeping the gun rather than the charges

right so i know from the comments that it is a great gun to have and it seems to be suitable for what i want it to do, but is there any site where i can buy it and get it sprayed, cos i live in the uk.

most retailers in this country offer a two tone service usually for a fee but do it all the same

Please don't double post. Someone will answer your post but don't expect it to be instant.

Go to:
http://www.novatcombat.com

They have the JG G36C in stock and you can just select the two tone option (remember you must still be 18).
Hope this helps.

I have skirmished for over 12 years and have owned many and still own many aegs.

to put it simply, china guns are cheap and there is a reason why they are. They use cheap plastic , cheap metal , cheap internals, cheap electrics and are crap.

Most people think they are good because they might play 1 to 2 games a month and if the gun last 6-8 months they think thats great.If you are lucky! But that s only 6-8 games or 12 games . Thats not alot. I used to play every weekend, sometimes twice in 1 week even and when you play that often you find out very soon what last and what doesn't.

To date I do not have any china aegs left and none of them have ever lasted. occasionally I buy one .. but thats because I want the parts that are on it.

my advice.. save a little more and buy something mid range like an SRC.

how often do they play and how many rounds shot?... cause thats what matters in the end. Most guys that I know that have had china guns for over 2 years hardly use them and so yes of course they would last a while ....anyway... this is not the place to start this... guy is asking for advice and my advice is don't buy china. If you do.. you will end up buying again soon. Not rocket science ... they are cheap and there are reasons for this... they don't sell them cheap because they are trying to be nice.

The problem with china isn't the fact that they are cheap, it is the complete lack of quality control. Sometimes you will get someone crap and you will be dissapointed with it, sometimes you will get the bargain of the century and the gun will last years, but you simply can't tell how long it will last untill it dies on you.
My advice will almost always be the same as goodvibes as you get what you pay for. and for beginners, you want about 200 for the gun, battery, charger and a spare mag or two. then go for SRC's, just be prepared for the uncompatibility with marui.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.
