It's not about the gun..It's how your skills come into contact with the weapon.

Hitman is quite right. It's how you play that will determine which gun is best for you.

Personally, I'd recommend a Classic Army G36 full size or a Tokyo Marui M14. Those guns have nice long barrels that will give you great accuracy stock. The CA *might* need some preventative maintanence, though I've put probably over 20,000 rounds through mine and it's still going strong. The G36 is nice because it's light for a full size rifle, but it only has a small battery so upgrade potential is limited without modifacation.

i know clearsoft aint exactly a favorite subject around here but i bought my little brother a tactical force tf7 for his 16th birthday and after charging the battery it wouldnt fire so we charged it again still wouldnt fire. I know the battery is charged because after i took it off the charger it was pretty warm and i know hes puttin it in the gun the correct way, so do you guys got any idea whats wrong with it.

Agreed. Do some preventative maintenance on it an THROW IT THE F**K OUT!

In all seriousness, Clearsoft is crap.

Does the motor do anything at all? If not, it could be burnt out. Or the trigger switch may be FUBARed. The wiring could be faulty, or the fuse could be blown [Assuming it has one].

If I were you, I would regard this as lesson #1 and stay far away from clearsoft in the future.

no the motor doesnt do anything im hoping the wires just got disconnected somewhere. and no skladfin it aint mine. right now the only airguns i have are pellets guns. I have a walther cp99 with a nickel slide and i just sold my beretta px4, and a crosman 2240. Ive only ever owned one airsoft gun it was an electric clear beretta (piece of shit broke in two days) that was the last time i ever used airsoft.

When you pull the trigger, can you feel the motor move or click? Does the battery get hot when you try to fire it?

Then its a power supply problem, test your battery to be sure that its holding a charge, just because it gets warm doesn't mean it charged. Check fuse, wiring soldering. Could be the tabs connected to your motor as well.
Hope you find the problem.
