Does anyone know whats the best online retail airsoft company to buy KWA products from?  I want to buy a KWA gun from a site that wont resell me used or handled merchandise.  I see that airsoftmegastore offers a free bottle of BBs and free shipping with their KWA products.  I think thats a good deal.

Whatever you prefer. Some websites such as Airsoft Megastore offer free items when you purchase a KWA, while others will give you huge coupon codes, such as Evike. Here a few dealers that I regularly purchase from.
Evike: http://www.evike.com
Airsoft GI: http://www.airsoftgi.com
AMS: http://www.airsoftmegastore.com
AEX: http://www.airsoftextreme.com/store/

Good luck with your next KWA purchase! :gun:

Welcome to the forum Jerry
I recommend all of the ones D1ctator has posted. Those all usually have a pretty good reputation and customer service, except for when they don't, heh. With the bigger ones, you must be warned that sometimes they may take a couple of days just to process the order, I guess it depends on how busy they are.
What part of the country are you from? Maybe I can help you find some smaller scale retailers more in your neck of the woods.

I agree with what the others have posted and will add that if you find a local shop, it may cost a few bucks more when you purchase, but you may find it worth it when you have problems and they take care of you for being a purchasing customer.  The Internet is great, but if you don't support a local store, you won't be able to buy things the day you need it.  I also like to handle items before I purchase to see/examine the build quality.

Ahh cool, a fellow New Yorker. Well, if you want things quicker, I believe there are some major retailers out in Ohio, but we also have a few on Long Island. http://hotspotairsoft.com/ usually gets things out quickly, and they also sometimes have decent coupon codes. I've ordered small things from them, but not a gun or anything yet. I wanted to order my LM4 from them, but they were out unfortunately.

Another decent site is shortyusa.com.  They are situated in Delaware.  They're a little pricey but they are usually pretty fair about shipping.

I recommend Evike, unreservedly. They are fantastic, and I have tested out all aspects of their customer service - both in-store, and through the mail. They really know their stuff.

While I'm local to them, I almost always order online, as the shipping is always free. The stuff always winds up getting to me WAY before the estimate indicates. And, that has nothing to do with my proximity, because they ship out with UPS, so the goods wind up traveling cross-country before they even come back here to LA. Funny, but that's how big-time shipping works.

The only thing they aren't as good at (but none of the domestic retailers are) as keeping exotic parts in store, for guns like WE/TM. But that has nothing to do with KWA, anyway.

Airsoft Megastore will give you free stuff that is usually garbage, while other companies will let you save cash. Like the LM4 for example, Evike gives you $80+ off and shipping ground is like $15. While ASM gives you a POS sling and free shipping and I doubt that sling is worth $65 haha.

I only like airsoft megastore for small things that I already know about.  I buy certain mags from them and small accesories like mag assists but that's about it.  ASGI can be very overpriced compared to evike.  I tend to go to them only when evike is sold out of something.  Evike takes forever to restock.

I personally like AirsoftGI. They always have a 10% coupon code going, though it is not advertised, and have free shipping for orders over $100. They do have a handling fee of $2.50 though for $100+ orders. They also started a point reward system last year.

I go back and forth between ASGI and Evike based on their current promotions / deals. I live in Los Angeles, so I normally receive my order within 3-4 days from when placed.

OK, here is a video I found from crazyncman, he does a good job of investigating online retailers.




Ive have good experiences with airsoftmegastore and Pyramiyd Air.  My only beef with those two is that they both offer a generous return policy - meaning you're likely to receive a used gun.

I had a very bad experience with ehobbyasia, where they obviously sent me a used gun, and it was shipped in a large envolope, not a real box.

evike has a final sale no return policy, can anyone confirm this?

www.crazycromags.com if you are close to Indiana! All my KWA stuff comes from him. Customer service and shipping are the best I have had period!

He also travels to all the big games with his mobile store. An amazing site to see when he is totally set up for the game.
