    Hello everyone, im looking to purchase a new gun for use at CQB fields like SS Airsoft or other airsoft fields in Atlanta (not to sure where, just moving there in the summer, so if any airsofters here are from Atlanta id like to hear what field you recommend). I found a few that look promising but am not sure which one to go with. Id like to spend at most 300ish. If they're any others other then the ones i mentioned or cheaper alternatives, id love to hear your suggestions.
    Here's what i found:

    Kwa Ronin 6 PDW https://www.evike.com/products/77579/

    Ares Amoeba GEN5 https://www.evike.com/products/72400/

    Krytac Trident PDW https://www.evike.com/products/63624/

    Krytac Alpha CRB https://www.evike.com/products/63113/

    Classic Army Nemesis https://www.evike.com/products/80364/

    G&P Rapid PDW https://www.evike.com/products/55847/

    Evike G&P Rapid fire 2 https://www.evike.com/products/49138/

    G&P Sentry https://www.evike.com/products/31652/

    So yea this is what i have found, let me know if there are any other better options or if i really need a short barrel rifle for cqb. Thanks

    You don't need a short barrel for CQB, but it's a lot easier to pie corners with one. That being said, the guns you listed come from reputable manufacturers, so I'd say it comes down to your preference. If you want to do internal work later on, I'd go with any of the G&Ps or the Classic Army. KWA is notorious for proprietary designs - if you needed repairs or upgrades you might find yourself spending more money in the process. The ARES Amoeba I have no experience with, so I can't say for sure whether it's a very flexible gun in terms of tech work.

    Take a look at the VFC Avalons as well.

    The Ares Amoeba has a micro-switch that does not play nice with high voltage.

    The new ones, should be fine, but make sure you don't get an old one.

    ICS CXP 8 is also good PDW if you like upgrading stuff in the future.

    Thanks for the info, I probably wouldn’t be interested in really upgrading so that’s not too much of a concern

    Airsoft GI has the Battery/charger combo Avalons (Mlok ones/Saber only) without MAP. Use the 25% coupon code 2018 at the checkout to get it for 25% off, or $295.

    As @LightIsRight mentioned, AirsoftGI currently offers the VFC Avalon CQB for the lowest price, using the MAP glitch.

    After applying the coupon code "2018," you get 25% off your order. For $290, you get the gun + a lipo battery + a lipo charger + 2500 CA .25g bbs + 1 Mystery Item + UPS Ground (2-4 business days for delivery). It's everything you will need to start playing and the final price even includes shipping, although you can change UPS Ground out for whatever method you prefer. However, higher rates will apply.

    This is by far the best deal that I have come across, considering how much you get for under $300, especially when considering that the gun alone is $350 and is supposed to be a MAP product. Keep in mind that like the others have said, you MUST select the "battery and charger package" instead of the regular gun, if you want to be able to apply the 25% off discount. Also, the package is already discounted $30 on their website, before the coupon code. If you like the Avalon, I highly recommend taking up Airsoft GI on this offer, as I don't believe it is intended to work this way. I've owned several VFC rifles and with the Avalon being their newest line, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Never mind, my mistake, chose cqc not cqb, How long do you think this coupon code will last for?

    The code is "2018," so I assume it will last the entire year, although I am not positive on that.
