I'm fairly new to this whole WWII airsoft scene and I'm trying to get a game together with some friends. I'm short on cash so I can't go too expensive with weapons. Basically all I need is 3 weapons for US soldiers and 3 for German. All need to be primary weapons, so no sidearms. I've heard the CYMA M1 Carbine is pretty good for beginners so I'll probably look into that. My price range per weapon is up to about $60-$80. I understand that's not a lot to work with but it's all I got. Thanks in advance!
Unfortunately, you won't be getting much for that price. WWII airsoft isn't that big yet, not up to the point where someone has an extra M4 laying around they can sell for under 100. Luckily, the M1 Carbine by Cyma is an excellent choice and a big deal around here for its reliability and FPS, for the German side, there isn't a cheap equivalent.
If you don't mind getting cheapo springers, your options open up to some under $30 Thompsons, MP40s, 1911's, Mauser C96, but their build quality are pretty low and usually break under normal operating.
Now, if you are really creative, Evike sells rather decent Springer M14's (I think for about $50), and you can mock it up to be an M1 Garand, a la the mods people do to the AEG M14's on this board. Obviously without buying the real steel parts, because that will pretty expensive. Hence where creativity comes into play.

And probably your best bet on the German side is to find used MP40s. Every now and then airsoftmegastore runs their CPO guns at 30% off, which would bring them into your price range... IF you wait for that, and IF they have them in stock. A few have come up used on the trader thread here, or you can always troll Ebay. But if you shop smart and are OK with used, MP40s under $80 is realistic.
CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: HIKI is good if your on a budget. The uniforms are cheap, and that will be pretty obvious when you get your hands on it. The sizing is off, might want to order one size up from what you wear. I bought pants from them, I needed to get 2x my normal size

derriese: Hello everyone! Did anyone of you guys bought equipment or tunics from HikiShop? I want to get the m32 tunic (for cosplaying as a Nazi Zombie), but the price seems very low ($45)and I'm afraid I'm going to get scammed .

CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: Hiki Shop quality is passable, there are better quality out there but if you want to through together an impression quick and on the cheap they are the way to go. I bought my Heer pants from them.

suomifinn: Hikishop is legit. I use them for my Finnish impression. Some of the stuff can be off in terms of accuracy, easily fixable though. For the price it's hard to beat. Great for more obscure countries.
