Hi Cerwyn
I've only got into model guns in the last month or so, I purchased 2 Berettas and a factory Marushin uzi.
I love the whole concept of it, sadly both Berettas have broke and the uzi refuses to fire properly.
The 1st Berettas rail snapped after a weeks use (maximum of 15 rounds) the firing pin also came out, the other Beretta refused to fire any rounds, I tested it today with a double catridge (mg caps - yellow box) and it blew the plastic off above the firing pin (Beretta desert storm)

How long have you been into the mgc guns pal

Hi and welcome!

Sorry to hear about your luck with the M9's. Usually the MGC's are good firing models. Hopefully you can get some parts to repair them.

The Uzi's pretty much refuse to fire properly for everyone unless you work them over a bit! Getting them working well is part of the fun for some of us!

Hi ljerr2

Thanks pal, the 2 Berettas I bought weren't really right from the go get, refusing to fire properly and then they snapped etc.
The video I seen of the uzi firing sold me right away, but when I got it, it didn't function like the videos, which disappointed me a bit, I've spent near enough 1000, and all I've got to show for it is lots of catridges, 6 box's of caps and 2 broke m9s and an uzi that struggles to fire normal :-/

What guns do you have pal.

I also collect deactivated guns, I've got an old spec uzi that cocks and dry fires, I've got a franchi spas 12 (without the hook) I've another uzi and a sawn off shotgun and a Beretta centurian 92, and loads of airsoft guns, airsoft is my passion, me and my brother love the sport.

Take care pal

Thanks pal

Lol, I wish I had that problem :-) my initial reason to get into the model gun scene was because I'm currently writing a crime book and needed like for like guns, and was planning on doing several re enactments on video and maybe a small documentary.
Do you ever sell off any of your guns pal

Hi Ljerr2
I was wondering if you could help me at all, I have 2 Berettas that are broke, or should I say, some parts needed, do you do repairs at all (send them to you and pay for them to be fixed) I honestly have no clue when it comes to them.

Any help is really appreciated pal

Sorry, I'm across the pond..............and transfers in and out of the UK I think are quite sensitive.
I bet you can find some help here on the forum that is a bit closer. Have you checked out PFCGUK?

Thank you pal

I've emailed his company and also through Facebook, I've asked if his company can help me :-( I need help with my guns.

If anyone has direct contact with him, I'd appreciate people giving him a wee nudge to let him know I've messaged.

Thank you all

Hi John from PFCGUK here Very Happy
Got your message and having a look at your email now, it will be monday before I can get to replying to that one ! wow its long !!!

Looks like you have had a poorly supported start to modelguns as a hobby!
My key to good customer relations as a retailer is to be HONEST ! Some Modelguns can be a bit "temperamental" and guidance, support and a realistic guide of what to expect is the key to avoiding situations like the one you are in.

Reguarding the pistols, it would be expensive to get them going again, and also very unlikly, as for example the chanches of getting a replacement MGC desert storm Beretta top slide is very unlikly.
The YT beretta.... maybe but depends exactly on the details of the slide/pin break.

Next the UZI... these can be very good! but as mentioned by others in this thread work/tuning is needed to get the best out of them.

I note we did chat a bit by email around dec/early jan with regard to the UZI you bought from elsewhere, and if you remember I said
" In the Uzi all the energy of the cap is used to cause the blowback, they are not loud. Cap type will make no difference.
In say a revolver all the energy can be used to vent a nice bang and flash. thats what the RF caps are good for.
Its just a fact that the Uzi (because of the Marushin cartridge design and bypass / barrel length) is a quiet gun. But it really is not about the loudness, they are modelguns and designed for operation not noise...."


I guess you were trying get the effect you had seen on "certain" videos.
In truth this all goes back to what I said in the first place and you should have got a realistic guide of what to expect is the key to avoiding situations like the one you are in.

Now the good news Smile you will find the guys on here VERY helpful, now its not an airsoft forum where everyone post 500 times a day, its a more leisurely experience LOL, but there is a lot of backgroud advice and info on here.

Question now is are you ready to spend more to get them going...... as I said honesty Smile !!

Any help from the supplier or person you got them off?

Hi John

Thank you for your response pal, the only thing that was said to me was that they couldn't take the yt Corp Beretta back because it was used, the desert storm I was told to send back and they would test it, but I was told it was a cartridge problem and to try all sorts, I tested it yesterday and it blew the plastic off the top slide.

I was asked to send the uzi back for testing, but was told it was a cartridge problem, when it's really Not, it's been well cleaned and lubricated, but same problems, it simply won't fire every round from the magazine.

Bad experience I'm afraid John

I'll reply later as battery ready to die

Thanks again pal

Hi John

I think in the future I'll try your company pal, there's just so many times you can be told that it's the catridge problem, when in fact the gun is the problem.

Would the desert storm rail fit the yt Corp Beretta, or am I clutching at straws, I'm just very very disappointed at the money that's been wasted, money that could have been used towards the book and mini documentary.

Can you source many models John, or is it only what you get in.

Thanks pal

Hi, The desert storm rail will not fit the yt Corp Beretta.

I source what I can for stock, and can get others if required, but it can be a slow process waiting for them to turn up in Japan.

Hi John

What are the Mac 11s like in term of sparks and flames, do they take the 9mm catridges or do they take smaller ones.

I was looking to maybe get a Mac 11 to try one, so any advice is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hey - I'll jump in and recommend checking out our modelgun video section here. What you'll find is real, unedited results that are possible with these models. No CGI or special effects or professional editing - just the real deal!

Regarding the M11, they take a .380 size cartridge, so a 9mm won't work for you. MGC's M11 has several cartridge options now - including the open cart (original MGC), CP-HW cartridge, and also the new Tanio Koba Easy-CP option. A different detonator is required for each cartridge choice. There's also a new M11 that has been released by CAW, but unfortunately I have not yet fired it. It is a re-worked version of the MGC M11, but with some changes to the bolt and barrel. Hope to give it a go soon, and when I do I will post up the video!

Thanks Jerrod, good advice!
DVD... the search for sparks and flames will drive you mad LOL, its not that easy with semi/full auto guns. simple as that.
And when a modelgun says 9mm its not that easy, each modelgun maker and each modelgun cartridges are different, sometimes VERY different.
I sell to some film makers who have spent a LOT of time getting used to modelguns, and have invested time and cash and are now coming up with very good results! BUT it takes money and time.
Modelguns are just a tool in the process, and filming skill, acting and SFX all come into the mix..
Modelguns are facinating and a lot of the time frustrating. But I love them LOL !

I find that the results are driven by circumstances, in parts of the world where there are options.... frustration at trying to get good results for film drives film makers to end up spending far far more than they thought on real guns and film armourers, and post production sfx, however in areas where "real" guns are not an option some fantastic results are achived using modelguns / airsoft / even inflatable guns LOL.

Thanks to the both of you for the superb replies, it's always appreciated from me :-)

I do fancy a Mac 11 to try and test, your spot in about the uzi not being loud at all, I suppose sometimes, we need to hold our hands up and say that it's the best were gonna get, without actually handling the real thing.

When it comes to sfx, I'm as thick as they come, regarding the uzi I purchased, maybe I had my sights set a little too high, regarding the other 2 I purchased, that's another story which in both disappointed and gutted about.

Blank firing guns are really not an option unless front venting which is illegal in the uk, so that's something I can't do, using a fully functional shotgun with blanks, again, I don't hold a firearm license, so that's out the window.

I did have a Miami Reck years ago as well as a blow crazy mp5, but long long gone.

For my mini documentary, I was planning on 're enactments, and needed a variety of guns (Beretta, uzi, glock, Mac 11) I've messaged the other gun guy and asked if he would take the 2 faulty guns back and do a part exchange for a glock (money his way) out of interest, what would the best glock be to purchase (glock 17)

My book is around 60% complete, it's having time to write it, and I need to be in the mood to do so, I've had so many times where I'll sit for a good hour and my mind is blank, and I'll type half a sentence :-O

Thanks again lads :-)
