So you want a PTW...

Postby Baronvonsmooch » Tue Jul 16, 2013 3:51 pm

Want a PTW but don't want to sell your friends dignity to buy one? Knockoffs are now available for those classy folks who wish to drink beverages with their pinkies out.

The new version Systema PTWs are going for around $1500 all said and done to give you an idea of what the original costs are.

Celsius makes a PTW for about $750.

A&K makes a knock off to be released shortly called the MK4:

Another by a company called Airo Arms goes for about $350.

Lastly, a company called G&D (not to be confused with G&G) have produced what they call the DTW:
This is retailing for $315 on Airsoft Global!

As always you get what you pay for but it gets you closer to PTW ownership.
None of these are without faults...to include the original Systema PTWs but they are still awesome pieces of machinery that can truly enhance the experience.

One of the best quotes I've found about PTW ownership:

As everyone knows using a TW gets you the girls, other men envy you, pregnant woman go into labour in your presence and you could have joined a leet SF unit but your dear old mum has a bad back and you couldn't leave her to fend for herself whilst you traveled the world killing bad guys.

PTW and Clone buying options in the US:

Hot Spot Airsoft is a phenomenal dealer of Systema PTWs, Celcius CTWs, and now G&D DTWs. I've personally done business with them and haven't had a complaint yet. They may be the most knowledgeable folks regarding the PTW distribution and repair in the US.

Airsoft GI now carries the A&K PTW for $360. They haven't been able to keep them in stock for long because they are such a new product. They also carry Systema PTWs.

Other Systema options:
Systema also makes an MP5 TW called the TW5. For those interested it is compatible will all real steel MP5 accessories, however the internals are not compatible with the M4/M16 PTWs. This includes the cylinders and other parts.

That price...... Kill me now.
Die well, or don't die at all, I prefer the latter.

It's not cheap...but it's a lot like High Def television. Once you know what you can experience, you won't ever go back.
