The UK Arms G3 Spring Pistol Airsoft Gun is constructed from plastic that keeps the weight down but is not as durable as its high end metal counter part. The UK Arms G3 is operated by racking the slide which cocks the spring for a single shot. The spring system used in this gun allows it to be very affordable, however it is not skirmishable or realistic. The UK Arms G3 has realistic features such as realistic sights, slide cocking serrations, textured grip and magazine release. Despite the realistic features, the UK Arms G3 leaves much to be desired in the authenticity department.
Although the UK Arms G3 Spring Pistol may be adequate for a display piece or prop, there are much better options for skirmishable airsoft guns that are still affordable. A spring shotgun such as the AGM Full Stock Spring Shotgun Airsoft Gun which comes in at only $29.99 features a much more realistic action as well as a much higher build quality. For a $52 more you can purchase a very reliable and skirmishable shotgun such as the Fire Power Multi-Shot Spring Shotgun
which features a very durable polymer body as well as 3 shot burst to better replicate a shotgun. Although, if you are set on purchasing a high quality compact style hand gun then you should save up a purchase a Gas blow back handgun, GBB airsoft guns are the most realistic guns you can buy. The Caspian Full Metal 1911 3.8 is a extremely compact gun that performs great, you can check it out here, Caspian Full Metal 1911 3.8
As previously stated, this gun is not field ready due to its low performance. Although due to its realistic look and features, this gun is a great choice for use in film productions or as a great display piece. Please do not expect to be able to compete with high quality airsoft guns while using this low cost airsoft gun. This gun is not serviceable and does not include a warranty of any kind.
For: UK Arms G3 230 German Compact Spring Pistol Airsoft Gun
This spring pistol was just alright. of course it wasn't like a gas blow back pistol or anything close to that, but it served its purpose. It's a little bit small for my hands, but that probobaly won't be a problem for others because I have big hands. If you'r looking for a cheap spring pistol that is low fps you've come to the right place. This gun is perfect for airsoft begginers and younger kids.
