    All right, so I stopped airsofting about two years ago, and now that I'm heading off to college, I know of a field near the university. While I have been absent, I see this new MPEG called Lancer. I know nothing about this brand, so I'll just ask - why are they so cheap? Give me what you know, but please, if you don't know anything, don't just parrot rumors.

    If you ask someone who owns one they are going to praise it. They probably have never used a gun of higher quality. I don't see any and it's a rare sight around here for a reason. Lancers are ok. With an extra 30 bucks your bumped up to JG or for around the sane price you could get a CYMA Ak. There are better options out there. To be honest. The best thing I have ever heard of lancer from an experienced player is that they are OK at best.

    See, I hear "they suck." Or "they're okay," but very little on why they suck or why they're okay. Thank you for those links, marine, but they do very little to help me because they're full of terribly general statements about the brand, which is not something I'm interested in.

    The externals don't look real. They look plasticly. The plastic is cheap and thin. The kid said his was a lancer so I'm assuming this is all true because the plastic did not look good at all. In addition the guns have not the best internals. I don't know exact items that are ok or bad because I never have opened one up but let's just say it did not preform well at all in CQB.

    Show him his app. It will help him! This app has helped me not only learn but learn how to learn. I know what to pay attention to.

    Their cheap because the externals horrible. Get a JG G36c. Something worth your money that has decent externals and internals.

    Thanks much on the externals help. I was afraid they might be cheap and plasticky. Anyone know anything about the internals situation?

    PS. I don't say this because I'm buying one. My price range for getting back into airsoft is $1300 total, so I'm not even considering this, but if I'm going to be giving advice on "what gun to get" threads, I'd like to have a good understanding of the whole field.

    This is a somewhat future plan for me, and it's more for a different thread. I'd rather this thread stay on topic so that I get my question answered. ;)

    Incase your wondering about other brands, WE is decent. They still have a high lemon rate but their working weapons are not bad but decent. Their Glock line up is their best series. Many people hate WE because they have lemons. I didn't so I think they are decent. I wouldn't recommend one unless you plan on upgrading it for the model.
