Its that time of the year again where Tim and I have come up with a list of guns that we think were outstanding for 2017! We hope you like our list and the selection we made!
10th. Tokyo Marui SGR-12 - A more recent cousin of the Marui AA-12, the SGR-12 is a practical electric shotgun that can slaughter teams in seconds. This new design is much more tactical and you can put a few more of your accessories on it too. Kudos to Marui for realizing this, which is why we included it in our top 10 list for 2017. Check out more on the SGR-12 on our online store HERE or the review HERE.
9th. VFC Avalon Leopard - We talked about the Avalon Leopard earlier in the year as an outstanding performer with a questionable foregrip, but its popularity with the airsoft community showed us Thundercats is indeed a THING and it's superior performance in this price range meant it deserves a spot in our Top 10 list at number 9. Check out more on the Avalon Leopards on our online store HERE and the review HERE.
8th. G&G ARP9 AEG - Little did we expect this Dark Horse to become so popular, but superior performance in the form of eye popping accuracy and range in a rare 9mm AR package puts this gun in our top 10 list at number 8. Check out more on the G&G ARP9 on our online store HERE or check out the review HERE.
7th. Cybergun WE Desert Eagle - Hand cannons always have a place in everyone's heart. It's so impractical and hefty but you still want one because it makes you BADASS. With an efficient gas blowback mechanism, full travel slide, and recoil that will blow your mind, this iconic movie gun favored by Agent Smith takes our 7th spot for 2017. Check out the Cybergun WE Desert Eagle on our online store HERE or you can watch the review HERE.
6th. G3 A3 / SG1 - Not the most popular model of late, the G3 platform was popular in the 90's thanks to Marui and later more popularized by cheap China clones. But LCT had the balls to go back to make the most realistic replica possible of this old model in all steel construction, which is why we salute the LCT G3 as one of the most daring and notable releases of 2017 at our #6 spot. Check out our online store for more information about the G3s HERE or watch the review HERE.
5th. RWA Lee Enfield No.4 - One of the most highly anticipated releases of this year, the Lee Enfield is iconic in its service record in various wars over the past century. This rifle finally puts the Lee Enfield within reach of most gamers who want a battle rifle with sniper capabilities, and the fact that everyone has been waiting eagerly to get their hands on one is why we put this battle rifle at #5. Check out our online store for more information about the Lee Enfield HERE or watch the review HERE.
4th. Cybergun SIG MCX AEG - Quickly being adopted by current military and police forces worldwide, the MCX takes a new approach to the widely accepted M4 platform. It's importance in the real steel world means that even certain law enforcement is looking to use this airsoft version for training, which is why it takes the 4th spot in our list. Check it out on our online store HERE or watch our review HERE.
3rd. KRYTAC Kriss Vector AEG - Arguably one of the most anticipated releases of 2017 and one of the most innovative guns available today, the Vector has been greatly sought after ever since the GBB version went out of production some years ago. Innovative engineering was used in this AEG package meaning that far more people could use this eye popping gun for outdoor gaming even in the middle of winter, which is why we put it at #3 on our list. Check it out on our online store HERE or watch the short film we made HERE and the table top review HERE.
2nd. ASG Scorpion EVO Carbine - While not technically a new gun, the carbine version with the longer inner barrel and handguard represented the most critical enhancements to bump the EVO Scorpion up on the list by now becoming the best rifle out of the box. Packed with the same features found on the far more expensive SYSTEMA PTWs, the Scorpion EVO Carbines are just good at doing everything while looking much better than it's SMG predecessor - which is why it takes our #2 spot. Check it out on our online store HERE or watch our review/overview HERE.
- Silverback SRS Sport (Amazing practical improvements and removal of not so important parts) make this unique looking sniper rifle attainable for many more people! Check it out at our online store HERE or watch the review HERE.
- Umarex HK45CT - Practical, amazing recoil and compact design found huge popularity with the airsoft community and everyone wanted one. Check it out at our online store HERE or watch the review HERE.
1st. VFC Forged M4s - Hardest kicking, loudest Gas blowback M4 rifle since Inokatsu M4 set a new standard more than 5 years ago. Just like the Inokatsu, VFC forged the receiver to make it "as real as it gets". VFC takes the top spot for setting a new benchmark which is why it takes our top spot for best gun of 2017. Check them out at our online store HERE or watch the review HERE.
