I haven't seen anything about them yet, but ThinkGeek offers several low end guns.

They're hosted under the Geek Toys -> Cube Warfare section.

Solid metal spring pistol; smaller pistol. I haven't had any experience with it yet but it's shipped out today so I'll review when I get a chance.

Submachine gun.. The box read CM-018 or something along those lines; it's an all-plastic Cyma sub. The body underneath the scope rail is the magazine, holds somewhere around 100 rounds.

Nice cheap blowback AEP. Runs on 4 AAA and has a 'stick' mag. It's just called the 'No. 2139' or something along those lines. Looks like a generic Chinese pistol. 15 rounds.

M4. I'm not certain of the make, I think it's Boyi. But it's a very low-end. My semi-auto works sporadically and the mag always misfeeds one round; whenever you run out and take the mag out, one round falls out. 30 rounds.

The M4 and SMG both have the stock hopup set FAR too high and I haven't been able to access the M4 internals to adjust it... M4 shoots about 30 yards and curves sharply up. I'm going to do some surgery on the SMG tonight and see if I can get to the hopup. The SMG goes much farther on a more gradual upward curve. Not certain if these are 'default' settings or just badly calibrated.

Overall not bad for the price but the bigger guns are not skirmish worthy. Hopefully the full metal pistol will prove its worth.

Alright, so after some extensive testing, I finally have a verdict on this one. It does its job and looks fairly good doing so. It's about 6" long, 4.5" high and around .75"-1" wide. It's full metal except for the mag and orange tip. I think it's probably made of aluminum or something similar; it's metal but there are weights inside the mag well. The slide is heavy and cocking it sounds -awesome-. It's pretty quiet as far as springers go, it's more of a paintball marker- type sound. Firing tests weren't spectacular, but for a sidearm it's pretty decent. About 2-3" left-right deviation at 10 feet. The hopup was set fairly well, it goes about 20 feet before starting to drop at a shallow angle. The mag is only 9 rounds, but for the size of the gun it's expected. Just cock it and load another. I tested with .12 clear green BBs... Crosman clear red .12 performed similarly. .20g caused more of a drop but eliminated the left-right variations. For a $12 full metal spring pistol, I'd give it an 8/10. The only real gripe I have is that it fits very low in my UTG tactical drop leg holster, causing problem drawing, but other than that and the fact that as far as I know, no spare mags exist for it, it's a great buy.

EDIT: The gun surface is a non-reflective, dark gray almost black color. Very nice.

Well, after breaking it out to shoot again I'll have to re-assess... It drains Duracell AAAs like nobody's business and the packaged rechargables were crap. It's okay, shoots straight with a slight upward angle, but occaisionally the slide will get 'stuck' and you'll have to jam it forward to unlock it. Sometimes with rapid semi-auto fire, after you stop firing and continue to hold the safety trigger, the gun will keep firing. My mag fell apart at the seam in the middle and the spring, BB feeder and all popped out. A little heat-shrink and a lighter fixed that. The battery door is a b---h to open on a good day. Other than that, it's alright for the price. 7.5/10.
