New to PTW's - advice request on possible buy

Postby ptwcurious on Thu Dec 10, 2015 4:08 pm

Hello,
I'm new to this forum so I'll quickly introduce myself before asking this wonderful community for advice :-)
My name is Geert, I live in Belgium. I've been playing airsoft for about 6 years now, been buying and selling and buying airsoft guns over and over again.
Recently my intrest in Systema PTW's was sparked when I encountered one on my local field.
I went looking on facebook sales forum's for PTW's in my country and I came across a PTW with these specs:

Systema CQBR MAX II
- Systema 2012 motor
- Systema 2012 gearbox
- Programmable OMG ECU (Semi/Burst or Semi/Full auto)
- Systema lower (Systema markings)
- G&P G27 grip
- Buffertube sling mount
- Deans wired
- Systema cylinder
- Systema hopup chamber with FCC internals and CQB innerbarrel
Upper:
- Prime VLTOR upper (No shell deflector)
- Used look
- Honey badger kit (Dytac)
- Systema charging handle
Extra’s:
- 1 x Lipo battery
- 4 x systema magazine
- 2 x rangerplate
- 2 x magazine pull
- Systema red cylinder (345 fps with 0.20)

Are there things I need to keep in mind like weak points, needed upgrades,... ?
And is 1250 EUR a fair asking price ?

Many thanks in advance for sharing you knowledge with me :-)

Anything with FCC in it is pretty crap, my personal opinion.

Always look for Tac built PTW with the mods done as they are worth the money.

It's just the barrel group that has FCC parts, the lower is solid, which is the important bit.

Thanks for the reply's guys.
Do you think the asking price is ok? And are FCC parts so bad? From what I've heard from the guy on the field that I met FCC parts should be pretty high end upgrades?

Best parts for a PTW are PTW own brands more so the Motors and one that has the mods done. My opinion of FCC is most of it is crap especially the motors.

I'm close to finalizing the deal, asked for the original systema parts for as much as the seller still had them.
Now everything is systema exept for the inner barrel wich is still FCC.
- Are FCC barrels ok enough ?
- The motor is a Kumi 490, is this a decent motor?

Thanks a lot guys :-)

The red cylibnder goes way over 450 near 500fps.

The gold cylinder does 430 fps.

With portuguese laws even a m110 goes a little above 1,3j, use a m90 with spacers
