Please let me know if there is anything that you would or would not recommend getting with the CTW to optimize performance and so that I don't end up spending more money than needed.
Thank you all very much
After MY experiences with the ctw, I would pay double the price, if I have to, just to get the warranty; of course, if you're lucky, MAYBE you won't have problems, but if you're not lucky, as was I, you would pay more on the spare parts, repairs and mods to get your gun to work..JungleJim wrote:The nozzle can be bought extra. And the warranty could be void as soon as you remove the useless Tamyia connector...
So that's a 50% mark up on the retail price if you buy one in the UK.

Not too bright that one is it........ and if you have to return it as its a complete lemon; postage to asia via TNT as they are the only courier who will do it - £75!!!!
Sunray wrote:Simple - you all 'grey' import, shops in the UK make less sales as your bringing it in from aborad, shop profits go down but shops overheads stay the same, shops close down as not enough profit to pay the standard bills - rent, rates, electric bills etc. This is not just a Celcius issue but ALL airsoft products -in fact its for any retail enviroment.
I dont know where you are in the world, but near me my high street is 40% closed as business's have gone as they cant compete with the 'online' culture.
The Warranty on a Celcius via the distributor is 12 months, and its backed with parts in the UK. It's still less than half the cost of a Systema and its for the MX-2 and not the cheaper MX-2R which is made from recycled metals. Shops have to make a profit - its how the world goes round.
It's exactly what happened to me. I purchased my ctw from us, and when I had problem after problem and complained to them, all they did was sending my complains/mail to Celcius and I dont have to tell you what good that didSunray wrote:In response to your comment about the States - you dont get any warranty in the US and its not a law that you have to offer a minimum of 30 days as you do here in the UK / EU so they can sell it on the fact that if something goes wrong, its a cost to put right.!!!
