General rule of thumb it seems from sites like BBguns4less and justbbguns, the guns which they sell are not consistent, meaning that one gun may be in good working order, while another will fall apart as soon as the pull the trigger, although it seems the second option is more common.

I have personaly made a purchase from each of these sites.

From BBguns for less i purchased two of the following items
http://bbguns4less.c...tic-bb-gun.html

these were for a simple weekend up a friends farm so we could have a bit of fun, with the additional intention to use them as additional props for some filming as it was cheaper then paying for a good brand AEG.
the items in question took 2 weeks before they were delivered, i was not overly fussed on this fact, but the guns them selfs proved to be of very poor quality, parts such as the shroud and stock were very loss, and one of the guns didnt even make it to the end of our weekend before the entire barrel broke off.

The order made from JustBBguns was for a Shotgun
http://www.justbbgun...81/NEW-MOSSBERG
again this was purchased with intentions for film prop, but although its shooting condition failed fairly quickly, the structure remained sound so was still able to use it for a prop.

If you aim is simple a bit of quick fun with friends, then id say go cheap, as there is no need to pay more then you need for these guns which are of quality which is sub par to what most airsofters would expect.

Similar experience to most others here:

I ordered:
Well L96 AWP 130
1000 0.3g bb's 15
Scope 40
Mounts 10

Since its over 50 I used the 5 working day free delivery which didn't turn up on time. Tried to call and e-mail them for several days with no response so I sent another e-mail saying If I had not heard from them or not received the goods by the week after the delivery was meant to come I would cancel the order and go through channels with my bank to reclaim the money taken and refer a complaint to trading standards.
That seemed to get a response, I got a call from them asking about the delivery, it was shipped the same afternoon and arrived the next day.

In conclusion they are pretty cheap and have a decent range of products but if your wanting good customer service and reliability look elsewhere. If you are set on buying from them then my advice is get next day delivery or similar so you can chase it up earlier if it doesn't arrive.

I recently ordered an HFC Mini MP5 & 1000 decent 0.12g BBs from BBguns4Less

(OK, I fully realise this gun is likely to turn out to be a POS, but I have a project in mind for it which doesn't warrant a hefty spend and 15 is the cheapest I've seen these things offered for.)

The saga so far:

The price of P&P is a bit high.

Delivery was slow, even by standard parcels comparisons.

The BBs are fine.

The gun I received was a Mini AK in a Mini G36 box that looked like it had been rescued from behind somebody's fridge or something.

I complained by email.

It took them a few days to respond, but the response was what you would expect, ie sorry, send it back, we'll refund postage.

I emailed back several times trying to talk to them about adding items to the purchase and also that I was not prepared to send them the receipt for posting back to them because a) the parcel would already be wrapped when I got it and b ) that is my proof of postage. Instead I offered to photograph the receipt and email that to them for their records.

No response.

I sent them the gun & receipt pic.

No response...

At this stage, I fear the worst.

Suffice to say, the moment I get this situation sorted to my satisfaction will be the last I have anything to do with them, unless they do something nice by way of apology.

I know you're aware the gun is crap already, but I once bought a gravity fed P90 when I was about 14 and it was absolutely the crappest thing ever, the BBs were bashed away from the feeding hole by the back and forth catapult-type motion of the tappet plate.

Also, it's hilarious that they say it can shoot 30 metres... 30 metres downwards off the top of a 30m high building maybe.

Also Alexb111 - 15 for only 1000 .30s? That's insanely expensive, I used to be able to buy the same amount for about 7 from a paintball shop not too far away, either the shop is a general rip off, or the quality of that ammo is utterly off the charts amazing. Which I highly doubt.

Yeah Ed, I'm not expecting much! I did test fire the Mini AK they sent me and it was surprisingly ok over short range - about 10m lol!

The MP5 is coming to bits as soon as I get it and getting a morph into a Scorpion-stylee pistol and its innards refurbed with whatever comes to hand - tape & glue mainly I expect (although I've recently found a steel making firm that do some interesting deals so [cue twilight zone music] we shall see...)! But I reckon I'll have a full-auto side arm that does ok for when a mag runs out and the enemy are piling in...

Update on BBguns4Less - maybe they read this forum b/c not long after I posted the above they emailed me to say the gun is on its way. No word on a refund for the postage yet, but I've informed them that my patience will run out at 13:30 09/05/2012, at which point steps will be taken etc. so watch this space I suppose :lol: It's not like harassing the arses off them will cost me anything, and I don't care that it's only over 3.38 - it's the principle of the thing, dagnabbit!

Can anyone reccomend them as I am looking to buy a full-auto AUG from them


I bought ,my first gun of them, a BE G36 (some internals as your AUG), got it, opened the box put the battery in short circuited and blew. After that the gun couldn't fire nothing the barrel was way off with the cylinder head.

You're better off buying a second hand form here.

The scope of the G36 I bought was just clear plastic, same as the one on the AUG. DONT BUY FROM THERE. Plus there all out of stock.

Good luck with that. I had to take it to a Paypal dispute, which they ignored, so I didn't get my 9.16 back until the day after the claim expired. Basically, they had money that belonged to me for over a week!

Soooo, in short this shop is good for cheap guns which don't last long but the customer service is poor? Just checking because I have a mate who was looking at buying his first airsoft gun from here. :huh:

I wouldn't mate.

I've just bought my 1st AEG - a CYMA tactical AK47 from Action Hobbies - cost me 125 and it's a 'kin beast! Just skirmished it Saturday and even the marshals were impressed with its range and accuracy. I was worried that it would be too hot, due to the advertised FPS, but it chrono'd @349-351 with 0.2g BBs - sweet!

Update:

BBguns4Less have apparently refunded my postage now, although I'll have to wait for my bank statement to check :lol:

I was away from home when they sent the replacement gun though, so I won't know if it's cool until tomorrow.

Still, so far it appears that being firm but reasonable with them works in the end.

DONT BUY from Bbguns4less - Didnt receive my item and they took my money

Wont reply to emails and all you get is an answer phone if you call.

Call them before you buy and see what you think, no way to get in touch with them if you have a problem

BEWARE

Have had a bad experience with bbguns4less, I bought a mystery box as a gift and all looked well, but within a few hours the pistol had stopped working then once battery had charged for machine gun this was used but again within an hour this had also stopped working. I messaged the company through their facebook page saying I was disappointed to which the exact response I recieved was quote "tough sh*t" no other words, I would never buy from this company again or recommend them. I will make a point of ensuring I circulate reviews in regard to this. Coming from advertising and being customer service focussed person I find this sort of response to be an absolute disgrace and shows no professionalism. This is no way to run a retail driven business.

Alas there are horror stories with all suppliers - you only really find out how good they

are when things don't go according to plan and then you find out just how good ANY

company is when rectifying a problem/return

 

I bought quite a few bits from them - Dragon for example - which is $hit but that is gun

not BBGuns4Less fault, but have had a few issues when things didn't go perfectly

 

The 3 main cheapo "kids" or beginners sites:

 

JustBBGuns - absolute *!?@#&

 

BBGuns4Less - tiny bit better

 

JustBBGuns - probably best ones I have tried, everything is free shipping, fairly true

reviews but still have to watch what you buy coz there is some crap on there too

 

Alas any mystery box is gonna be mainly pants stuff imho - yes sometimes it might

be a lucky touch, but in general you ain't gonna get much if any decent stuff in there

(fvck me - how many targets or jammy bb's must these sellers buy per week ????)

 

Sorry your stuff broke so quickly, but they should be taking a better lesson in customer

service than that, you tried calling them - gonna be a pain to send stuff back and if so

you lose on return postage - no retailer has to refund you for return shipping - if lucky

some may send courier to collect at their cost but often the buyer has to pay returns

 

Often if not too bad I have decided to take the crap on the chin coz not worth hassle or

cost of postage - but in your case sounds like quite a bit is not living up to the description

or faulty goods - they will argue it was working but must of broke due to user error

soz - but you can see how they will answer......

 

Alas most of the reviews on these 3 sites are done by users who are kids or very little experience

hence:

 

Fires at 400fps - coke can test

awsome range - 20ft

the best gun I own - it is my first

incredible rate of fire - more than 3 a second - just

Just get it - so we can both get owned at skirmish sites

 

And yes I bought LOADS of FANTASTIC crap.....

 

Hopefully it wasn't a really big expensive amount of money on mystery box, it sounds

too good to be true and if you work in advertising you would know very often it is just

that - too goog to be true like most stuff in life - no free lunch etc....

 

Hope you get it sorted or at very least partially sorted - welocome to the:
