    Decided to copy NJ and Fyzix...sorry guys
    It was October of 2011. A large package awaited me on my porch. Little did I know it would be the beginning of a long line of me screwing up guns.
    1)JG/DPMS M16-Bought for $90 here from shadowsun99 in October 2011. Failed from the start, because the tamiya connector came off and in my attempt to fix it I took apart the whole gun and screwed up the shimming. Bought a Classic Army sportline gearbox from Havegunwilltravel and put that in around December. Worked off and on untill March when I sold it to RadialBuzz for $60.

    2)JG/DPMS M4-Bought externals and hopup/inner barrel from RobbyP for $30 on here. Put in the original gearbox from the M16. Never really worked. Traded to Arekkusu for a different JG M4

    3) JG M4 #2-Got in a trade from Arekkusu. Never got around to fixing that torn bucking. Traded to Haml in June for his CYMA M14.

    4) JG BAR-10-Bought from Hockeyfights118 for $60. Took about a month to get here. Sears eventually gave out. Traded to Ranger for a JG G36c in June.

    5) Y&P 1911 NBB-Bought from airsplat for $3. Never really worked. Partial trade for a KJW 1911.

    6)Y&P M9 NBB-Same story as above.

    7)Well R8 M4. Bought from airsplat boneyard for $7. Actually worked. Put in a JG blue motor and traded it for a Pantac MBSS plate carrier.

    8)CYMA M14-Got in a trade from Haml. Did a few upgrades. My favorite gun. Still own.

    10) KJW 1911-Got in a trade. My first GBB. Worked until I dropped it and the slide got all misaligned. Traded to mnmetalhead1 in August for M4 mags and some parts.

    11) JG P90-Got in a trade from Averageairsofter on here. Traded 3 M4 midcaps, a vfg, and a scope for it. Was broken when I got it, fixed it but it shot about 10 fps. Sold in late June to Mystery_34 for $60.

    12) Dboys M4 SD-Bought for $50 on ASF. Fixed it up but stripped a piston. Traded to E-5 for an MP5k.

    13) HFC M9-Bought for $40 with 3 mags, and 2 M14 mags in July from Stray Bullet. Worked great until I snapped the trigger spring. Still have in pieces.

    14)Double eagle UMP-Bought for $30 with the intention of fixing, never did though and I needed money. Sold for $50.

    15)Cybergun MP5k PDW-Got in a trade. Worked until something got messed up. Currently working on fixing or selling it. Still own.

    16)JG M4 CQBR-Bought for $110 with upgrades and a cool paintjob. Didn't work when I got it so I sent it back to the guy, he said he fixed it but still didn't work, so I finally fixed it this last sunday. 2nd favorite gun. Still own.

    17) CYMA M14 #2-Bought from Haml for $40. Missing stock. Was going to turn it into a CQB weapon, we'll see what happens. Still own.

    18) Army Armament Glock 17-Bought for $60 with three mags. 3rd favorite gun. Still own.

    That's it! For now!

    God OK now I got to go do one of these, no offense intended but I think you're buying too many broken guns.

    I'm guessing you've always bought boneyard?

    You have had the biggest collection of broken/crappy airsoft guns out of everyone on the forum.

    Thanks a lot. They are mostly JG though, not that bad really. A few months ago was when I realized I needed to stop buying lots of crappy guns and focus on a few good ones. Now that I got a job that will hopefully happen soon.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I personally steer clear from clones as much as possible. They are just not as reliable. I almost exclusively buy CA, G&G, KWA, TM, or VFC guns now. I always prefer metal over plastic too.

    I mean you can still buy used, and I always do, but my ground rules are, buy m4/m16 and Aks cuz those are the only guns I know how to work on -_-

    Sorry to hear about your problems with broken guns. I hate it when people sell guns, post all the pros, but leave out the cons.
