If AEG brands were Car Brands...

    Just as a fun sideline to the reliability thread there. If Airsoft brands were Car brands, which would they be and why...

    Below is my personal opinion and is just for laughs.

    • A&K = Kia Some nice looking models, need a 7 year warranty
    • APS = Hyundai Decent bodies, **** gearboxes
    • Ares = Citroen Loads of great designers in the company but no-one who can built a decent product
    • Classic Army = Fiat Fix it again tomorrow
    • Cyma = Nissan Cheap, reliable, popular, readily available, decent performance
    • Dboys = Rover Everybody had 1 once, being built in somewhere now with questionable results
    • Deep fire = Holden Seem reliable enough but you see **** all of them in Ireland
    • G&G = Volkswagen Solid construction, reliable, decent lookers, popular
    • G&P = Honda Been at it for years, some great performing models, some retarded turkeys too.
    • Galaxy = MG Some nice models, depreciate like nothing else
    • ICS = Ford Been around for donkeys but never seem to do anything new or cool
    • Inokatsu = Pagani Extremely sexy but ultimately useless in Ireland
    • Jing Gong = Volvo Safe, reliable, great as rentals
    • King Arms = Alfa Romeo You have to own at least one, lovely to look at but can be tempermental
    • KWA = TVR Great performance but can be a bitch to get parts for
    • LCT = Renault Lovely looking bodies with internals that don’t match that quality
    • Magpul = Bentley Nice out of the box but way over-priced for what it is, extras are crazy money
    • Realsword = Rolls Royce The absolute sexiest and classiest out there
    • Socom Gear = Skoda Re-branded VWs with a lot less street cred
    • SRC = Dodge See what I did there :)
    • Star = Morgan Some people love them despite their seemingly wooden bodies and plastic gearbox
    • Systema = Porshe Expensive and if its not regularly serviced it will explode
    • Tokyo Marui = Toyota Japanese, reliable, under-powered, once you open the gearbox, it's ****ed
    • Toptech = Audi VW chassis with an upgraded gearbox and other bells and whistles
    • VFC = Mercedes When you get a good one it'll last forever. All models look the same though.
    Remember, its just a bit of fun :P

    Gotta Agree with you There
    My SRC M4 Is Like A Dodge Viper
    Built From Random Bits They Found
    Tendancy to break down and blow your head off
    But when it does work
    By God You Can't Do Anything But Love It :D

    hmm... I dissagree on some points...
    • Ares = Citroen Loads of great designers in the company but no-one who can built a decent product <-- I'd be very specific here. Mercedes G500. Beautiful to look at, lovely construction, tough as hell. great performance, except rather lacklustre fuel consumption (read negative).... but an absolute hell on earth experience, to work on, upgrade, spare parts cost as much as the car, and leave you wanting to shoot someone afterwards.
    • Classic Army = Fiat Fix it again tomorrow <-- Im not getting into this
    • Dboys = Rover Everybody had 1 once, being built in somewhere now with questionable results <-- Lada... It seemed like a good idea at first, then you got it.
    • G&G = Volkswagen Solid construction, reliable, decent lookers, popular <--Skoda. bad at first, infact aweful, but now actually relatively popular and reliable.
    • G&P = Honda Been at it for years, some great performing models, some retarded turkeys too. <-- Rangerover in my book. Great start, great reliable, tough, work horse products with that external sexy class., of late, ford bought them, and started sticking plastic crap on them with huge wheels (read fagpul) Wonder if Magpull let Victoria Beckham desgin thier stuff too?
    • ICS = Ford Been around for donkeys but never seem to do anything new or cool <-- More specifically, Ford Explorer... If you turn too sharply at a corner, you roll, blow up, and die.
    • Inokatsu = Pagani Extremely sexy but ultimately useless in Ireland <-- Useless how? I honestly dont understand that part... Id have said Inokatsu were Lamborghini... Expensive, beautiful, Massive accelleration and top speed, but handles like you're going to die on each corner.
    • King Arms = Alfa Romeo You have to own at least one, lovely to look at but can be tempermental <-- Couldnt agree more :P
    • KWA = TVR Great performance but can be a bitch to get parts for <-- KWA. tvr? BMW more like. The owners are always questionable.
    • Magpul = Bentley Nice out of the box but way over-priced for what it is, extras are crazy money <-- Bentley? Are you serious?
      Id say Magpul guns are the Citroen Saxo at the local Aldi Carpark with the bodykit and neons.
    • Realsword = Rolls Royce The absolute sexiest and classiest out there <--Rolls? ugh, more like saab. Proprietary parts, looks nice, owned by dentists.
    • Star = Morgan Some people love them despite their seemingly wooden bodies and plastic gearbox (Its the same as ares, init)
    • Systema = Porshe Expensive and if its not regularly serviced it will explode hehe
    • Tokyo Marui = Toyota Japanese, reliable, under-powered, once you open the gearbox, it's ****ed <-- werd
    • VFC = Mercedes When you get a good one it'll last forever. All models look the same though. (Mini)

    Id probably add...

    KSC - Landrover... its tough, its practical, it does what it says on the tin, and it will pull your horsebox.

    You can't deny Magpull gunk is the airsoft equivalent of a spoiler on a Fiat Uno...

    magpul - more like essex boy races spending more on a body kit than the ford fiesta is worth to begin with

    You do realise that DeLorean were shockingly bad over-priced cars, made by a company that went bust after only selling half of what they made, and after swindling money/aid/tax breaks from the British government, right?

    the only thing made in Belfast that didn't sink,

    ironically he makes watches now
    they went bust due to problems with Protestants and Catholics sharing the same work place,
    coupled with that
    and that they had to rebuilt when brought to the usa as they were chicken coops
    the DeLorean test track is still in belfast to this day
    if only it had a good engine and gearbox
