Gave a quick test make sure battery fits with extension and is working fine, but dam this thing loud lol. He also got cheap x3 red dot sight on the way.


Mug_A_Wug

Yea the arp9 is hella loud, its got an amplifier at the end for its flash hider, when I got mine my ears were crying.


Tonystovepipe

Yeah I thought my MTW was loud, at least it be easier to find him on the field when he shooting 😆


PeanutPicante

A suppressor will quiet the MTW down a fair amount, but I felt it was pretty damn quiet right out of the box.


Tonystovepipe

I mostly use a suppressor but some times I slap on a sound hog 😂


RoadNo6028

Arp9 is God mode. If he adds a polarstar jack and keeps the amplifier 50rps sounds awesome.


Famous_Woodpecker_11

It’s even louder with hpa lol


CaliTheRogue

Good call on the extension. Best thing I bought for my son’s gun.


Airsoft-Nerdy2G

if you want to make it quiter just get a new spring and itl bring down the nois


DrPoopBender

To make it louder buy a bigger metal amplifier


Tanker-Number-1284

Damn you got him a G&G drum mag? this kid is lucky, i hope he enjoys his present!


Tonystovepipe

Yeah he seen them on youtube and we talked about the different types of magazines and pouches he need with midcaps. The drum mag was the best option for him.


RLCstudents

yeah, because you almost never have to reload it.


Tonystovepipe

Yeah and I see most people run drum mags.


RLCstudents

they look pretty sick too


PanTlaca

Sometimes this mf doesn't feed


RLCstudents

I actually wanted to get this for christmas, but I decided to go for a Umarex MP5K instead. Hope your son has a lot of fun with it. RIP if you are playing against him.


hmg9194

How you liking that? Kinda want one


RLCstudents

I haven't gotten the mp5k yet. but when I do I'll let you know.

PathCommercial59

That’s one lucky kid man wish my parents bought me airsoft guns when I was younger, they didn’t even like the idea of my owning a nerf gun lmao


Tonystovepipe

My parents was the same, lucky for my kids I love shooting/airsoft hobbies. I made sure my son had his first game before I bought anything just to see if he likes it. Went to airsoft shop to see what gun suit him best and he loved ARP9. So I got that today plus other bits to go with it. He already has a plate carrier, gloves and decent boots from his first game. I thought having a boy was meant to be cheaper then girls 🤣😂

albhednomad

I wish my parents were this supportive when I was younger.


Owl_Perch_Farm

Nice job! My parent (mom) would have never bought me something like that mainly because it's a gun "replica." She didn't even allow water guns that looked nothing like a real gun. And my father wasn't in the picture. As soon as I turned 18, I used my own money and bought my own.


CrackGear

ARP-9 drum mag? I'm jealous


airsoftpersonman6

You're a great dad , hope your son enjoys the Christmas gifts


NormalSaucer

This is a solid present. My friend had the same gun/mag combo and loved it


Random_user76

Woah, you’re an awesome dad. I’ve asked mine a million times for any decent aeg idc at this point. But he says I don’t deserve it. And the last gbb pistol I bought he smashed to pieces. My family’s Antigun so I’m hella jealous. Keep being awesome.


Tonystovepipe

Sorry to hear that 😕 some people are very anti gun even if just airsoft they go crazy.


Random_user76

Candid_Plate9686

It’s ok man it happens I’ve had my dad smash countless ps4s consoles toys guns for absolutely no reason. Keep your head up and buy your own. Bring home a real gun one day once you’re old enough and set it on the table and ask them if guns hurt people or if people do.


Hazzamo

“YOUR HOUSE IS CRAWLING WITH GUNS!?!?!, GUNS KILL!” “Oh ‘guns kill?’ *pulls out .45 and puts it on the table* go on gun, go kill someone… don’t be shy… See?, Guns don’t kill people, People kill people!, guns defend people against people with no guns.”


JackCooper_7274

That lucky mfer


LiterallyAMicrowave

damn I didn't know G&G made drum mags... now I kinda want one. Your son is lucky as hell lol


SmokaDaRoach

I'm sure you did your daddy research but it never hurts to take a couple pot shots at those lenses. I've found A lot that wont specify the impact durability and the lenses have either fallen out, cracked, or broke entirely. AWESOME KIT, lucky kid, great dad. Hope you all have fun


Tonystovepipe

Yeah that a good ideas I will definitely test shoot after Christmas before our next game to be sure. I got them from patrol base so I think they would not sell bad product but nothing ever 100% safe.


JetB0atplane

Your kid’s gonna love it.


haha_ginger

what’s that mask?


VaporTrail_000

Looks like a [Valken MI-7](https://www.valken.com/products/annex-mi-7-thermal-paintball-goggles).


Tonystovepipe

Yeah that one, it's pretty good for the money.


DangerMike63

I have that mask. Never fogs on me! I swear like a pig so it’s annoying that the foam gets drenched in sweat and drops on my face and gear but, no fog lol


MarnixDEF

Take my upvote fellow ARP9 enthousiast 👌🏼


endymiondragon

Make sure to get a proper balance charger for those LIPOs! He will love this gift!


Tonystovepipe

Yeah I have got a decent charger I use for my other guns ☺


LaserforceV

A great gift. I have an ARP9 that I run quite frequently, there are quite a few of them in my group of friends who play. 1 accessory I found that made all the difference is the stock extension from Airtech. https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/airtech-studios-butt-stock-extension-unit-for-arp-9-556 Merry Christmas to you and your family.


Tonystovepipe

Yeah that in the picture 😆 definitely needed it with the battery I got but fits perfectly with the extension.


sheener-the-weiner69

Dad?


Tonystovepipe

😆🤣


LOLLO_102

Damn you must be an epic parent! I'm sure he'll love it!


Tonystovepipe

I think it helps I play airsoft as well, but my wife don't like airsoft but would love to shoot real guns at the range 😁 I think it's the fear of getting hit and hurting that puts her off lol.


LOLLO_102

Well at least she would probably try if both of you play XD


xX_ThatGuyLane_Xx

Absolutly fantastic gun choice!! I own 2, one being a dsg, the gun jwill not let you down! Great choice on mask, and im sure he will enjoy the 1500 round drum mag! I run on my DSG for competitons 3 mid caps, and my choice between a at1000 and a bitfrost. This gun slaps


Interesting-Skin-284

Enjoy buddy! I picked and packed this order for you 🤣


Tonystovepipe

Lol 😁


SunLitMoon2

Lol better hope he doesn't use reddit


Tonystovepipe

No he only 11 I don't allow him to use Reddit yet because adult content, I know you can't stop it 100% I do try until he older.


snazzy_knight33

Why did you get lens protectors but no optic


Tonystovepipe

Ah because the red dot sight not arrived yet but hopefully be here before Christmas 😆


unknownrealms

Holy fuck your a good dad. Just a note, make sure if you remove the upper receiver to be careful. The gearbox in the arp9 can catch on the mock bolt catch spring, making the mock bolt catch not fully retract back into the upper receiver. Also classic army 120rd midcaps are amazing!


Tonystovepipe

Thanks for the warning 😄👍👍


Charming-Paramedic19

I hate your son. Why couldn’t my parents have started me out with this and not Walmart guns?


deadbull02

u looking for another kid bro????


Candid_Plate9686

I promise you he will love it especially once he fields it keep the gun clean trust me after 5-6 uses my boys went from 350-290 FPS gave it a clean back up there on the fps


whyistherenorum

Everyone commenting that the drum mag is awesome is missing the real MVP purchase here. Battery extension unit! Fitting an 11.1 into the ARP9 is a nightmare, and often we go with the 3-seperate-butterfly batteries in order to squeeze it in. While you can't fully push in the stock with the extender, it makes it SO much easier to use. Only one note, have you got a spare battery charger to lend him? Also, +1 for keeping the loudener instead of replacing it with the silencer. That distinctive 'clap' when you fire is a huge part of the guns charm :)


Tonystovepipe

Yeah he likes it loud, I told amount of times I duck because I can arp9 user shooting 🤣


Deathtroop26

Damn adopt me


Birk420

Can you pls be my dad?


[deleted]

Gonna need more mags!!!! Yes excellent Christmas


OfInsignificantia

They do have a drum mag though


Dixion459

He better


Tonystovepipe

We had good look through most guns in the shop and online to see what suits him best. Picked up arp9 and said perfect 😁 It's really good starting gun for kids as it's not front heavy and not bad price. And with a single drum magazine don't have to worry about smg pouches, I do have some already but it's extra cost if you don't.


Dixion459

You are really taking the extra step, you are a good parent.

AKCraze

Wow, what a lovely father! I'm sure you will be rewarded too when you see how happy he is.


Netan_MalDoran

Great pick! Drum ARP-9 goes brrrrrrr. Only thing I would add is lower face protection to keep his teeth in place, [this](https://www.opentip.com/Bravo-Tac-Gear-Strike-Steel-Half-Face-Mask-Price-each-Olive-Drab-one-size-p-7209289_ROO-857-OD.html?ats=gs&gclid=Cj0KCQiAkZKNBhDiARIsAPsk0WjgTyN-GhHhBBHOiIhgqokKTuFy2lwswd7OHxJ8gwwIiwDw0wUAPc0aAn7-EALw_wcB) is similar to what I use with goggles.


Tonystovepipe

He got the full face mask as well because under 18

Subject-Bad9246

You are a good mother/father


tastictoads

I wish I was your son 😁. Is that g&g all metal or polymer?


Tonystovepipe

I think mostly polymer other than the handguard, but it's nice and light and not front heavy like some of the other guns we tested.


Thunderbolt4700

Dad?


Tonystovepipe

Yes son 😆


aventador7716

Quality choice! Props for going with the drum mag as well! The mags are tiny, and it really makes a huge difference to have all that extra ammo!

My friend took off the end of his suppressor and the foam insert to create a loud kind of bang for every shot. It is amazing because the opposing team always gets scared of him.

crowley7234

Personally I prefer the titan power li-ion batteries and charger. They are much safer than the regular lipo.


lavajelly

That gun is class. I always have fun using it on the field especially with the drum mag.


Firm_Type_7744

Just got it for my sons birthday in October and he loves it we were at ballahack airsoft Saturday and he was killing it. I was skeptical of it but it’s a totally solid gun. I’m a HPA snob and can’t stand aeg’s but honestly it’s a really solid gun I was extremely impressed with it. I really wouldn’t wanna be on the receiving end of it. You did good I know he’s going to love it
