blacklab Posted August 31, 2015 Share Posted August 31, 2015 Can someone please explain to me the difference between airsoft gear and the brand name stuff. The reason I'm asking is because I feel like I'm getting ripped off. I have two good examples, I bought a STI mount for a C-more from Allchin @ $69.00. A few day latter I was surfing the web and came across a airsoft site that had STI mounts for $20.00, so I bought that one too. When they came in the mail I took them and laid them side by side. They are identical. Both claim to be made of 6061 aluminum, both measure the same and both weigh 1.4oz. The second example is, I bought a set of mag pouches from Black Scorpion @ $26.00 ea. And again I found the same mag pouches on a airsoft site for $9.50 ea. So I bought them too, and again they are identical, the only difference is the airsoft one's don't have the Black Scorpion sticker on them. So am I wrong in thinking different companies buy from the same supplier and put there names on it , and you pay more for the "big name" brands? Does anyone use airsoft stuff? Does it hold up? Is it different from "real" gear? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
