    i decided to invest in a new hobby and since i loved paintball im giving airsoft a try.
    i have been looking at guns while i wait for the permit(im in switzerland and i need a permit to own the gun).
    i thinking of buying this gun:
    A.P.S. Low Profile Adapt Rail System Keymod AEG (ASR116, BK)

    but someone told me aps has some problems. can you confirm?

    Simply stated, for the price you can get FAR better. Better performing with more longevity.
    If you're jumping through hoops and all this just to get an airsoft gun, don't waste your money on this brand.

    I had an APS AK once. The motor cage has this weird problem where the motor never engages with the gearbox. I've seen this happen on 2 APS AKs so far. I've also had a problem on mine, where it kept locking up and the only way I could fix it was by short stroking by 3 teeth.

    had a aps uar once for about 3 days untill it broke. I hated that crap and now when I hear aps I almost vomit. They suck stay away. The gearbox on mine locked up like ever time I shot full auto, and the motor died. good accuracy though when it did work.

    Dont worry. Already decided on a A&K SR-25 that is just 30 chf more expensive. And for now im loving everything about her.

    I love my APS

    Well I have only had my APS 110 for one season and it has worked flawlessly for me so far. My only issue is I hate the crane stock but that's my personal preference ( want to go back to a full stock)

    What would you like to change about its current performance? E.g range, accuracy, FPS, RPS, trigger response, joule creep etc.

    I think APS has poor quality control so a lot of people get lemons. I actually bought a very very used full metal APS m4 EBB that's still working great (all stock too), so it's luck of the draw.

    Switch out the hop-up packing and nub. Shoot .25g bbs if not .28g bbs.

    Shooting a heavy weight bb will give you a range bump without having to open your mechbox.
