  1. Today
  2. Hi All, been skimming the forums over the last few years for info and thought it time i got round to registering an account. I got into airsoft a few years ago with my wife after spending time with her on a shooting range in the USA on honeymoon and my better half discovering a love for guns. we played a game at a local site and while it wasnt the best run day, we both loved the game and son after became members at our closest CQB indoor site. we have recently started looking to travel around the uk a bit further to try other sites and as we are around Nottingham we have found a lot of great sites within a few hours drive. also im now in my 40s and still out of shape which has influenced my setup a little bit My gear has changed over the last few years first guns ASG sportline m15 SIR - i had a chance to fire an M15 as a kid so with a little nostalgia and liking the look bought this without realising its fairly unsuitable for CQB type games and very heavy for an all day outdoor game. it now has been stripped and rebuilt a few times and is mainly the gun i use for learning about the internals, so far have stripped the gearbox and rebuilt and rewired to the rear, stabilised the inner barrel to increase accuracy, have replaced the SIR system with an octarms keymod rail, added a bipod and 6x scope (40 something eyesight needs the help) and given a worn custom paintjob. planning to use this as the basis of my own aeg build which im hoping to start this year. WE P226 - cracking pistol never let me down but has been sold on now First setup Osprey mkiv - sounded like a good idea in my head until I tried spending a whole day running around in it fully loaded. more like wearing a personal sauna and also meant i failed to always feel when i had been hit. after playing a cqb all day game i had to change it for something else. current Guns ASG M15 - mentioned above - work in progress setting up for long range games GHK G5 - got this just before spending a weekend at Eastmere training village airsofting, love the recoil the GBB gives, it feels a good weight to carry though most of the weight is in the mags. the sound of it firing on full auto tends to get a few comments too. added a small 40mmm grenade launcher for room clearance with scatter shells TM HiCapa - great pistol and is going to be slowly upgraded with cnc aluminium parts over the next couple of years, planning to rebuild it into a DVC Limited style hicapa. Armorerworks hi capa black ace - another great pistol, good recoil, nice sound and quick firing. firing around 320fps now the spring is settling down Krytac Trident PDW mk2 - brand new and haven't had a chance to try this out in game....still trying to get a battery that fits the stock. hopefully will get a run out this weekend. the gun fires well and seems to have a good ROF on a 7.4v lipo. the weight feels good and love the look of it. 40mm grenade launcher pistol - addition to my setup when using the Krytac as strapping an under barrel on just doesnt look right with the size gear setup I have a belt and drop leg panel set up for CQB games, when going outdoor i drop the leg panel and add a plate carrier WAS PLB belt - tried a few and did some research, fantastic fit and comfortable when loaded for the day 5x40mm pouches - trmr with USA 209 base (carries 8 spare blanks in the base), 40mm grenades, smoke left handed holster firstaid kit utility pouch - used as a dump pouch and any bits i need out in the game eg speed loader Radio Pouch double sa80 mag pouch - card pyro and smoke double sa80 mag pouch - carries the 40mm grenade launcher pistol when in use WAS sabre dropleg panel - a leg panel that tends to stay in position without having to cut circulation when loaded with 2 x g5 mags and 3 pistol mags which is around 2.3kg of weight 2 x quick mag m4 pouch 3 x quick mag pistol mag pouchs WAS DCS plate carrier - due to my level of fitness I went for this based on the fit and weighing around 0.9kg. very comfortable to wear and easy to get on and off 3 x open m4 mag pouches combined with 3 x pistol mag pouches 2 x smoke grenade pouches 1 x viper utility pouch for a timed BFG 3 L hydration bladder inserted into DCS rear pocket I have just added a helmet to my kit to carry a contour camera but this will probably be used more on outdoor woodland style games or milsims once a bit fitter.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Wolf Armouries and ProAirsoftSupplies are my two local stores. Both have been excellent. I bought an optic from PAS and ended up not liking it. Took it back to the store and they refunded me straight away. Their store is great and they've got some nice stuff, just a shame that a lot of it is out of stock. Had history with Wolf Armouries for about 8 years or so, never really had an issue with them. Their store looks fantastic inside too! They're both based in London so you'd probably need them to deliver but I'd recommended both.
  5. Hi All I will be returning to airsoft after about 10 years :/ due to ill health ive been watching a lot of youtube reviews about AEG guns and brands but id like to get a discussion going on here with what YOU think is the top 5 brands. Im looking at buying a M4 or 416. My budget is around £300, so i would like a good quality gun with good internals and the latest stuff. i know spending the top end of my budget should get me a better quality AEG and it will last me much much longer and thats fine. but i dont know what the good and bad brands are, i just dont want to spend all my budget on a AEG then find out that brand has known issues So what id like to ask is could you please post your top 5 brands, i hope that enough forum members will leave me a good amount of info so i can make a good choice and avoid the lower end brands. many thanks for your time and i look forward to your views and top 5 Brands
  6. oh my word, the colour scheme on your assault rifle is stunning, think im in love lol..
  7. Thank you. It's strips of a hessian sandbag held in place with some sniper tape. I wanted a different texture and finish to the paint. I'm really pleased with it.
  8. yeah i agree with jedi, bbguns4less or justbbguns are not somewhere i would recommend people buy from, you might get the gun you ordered But that will be as far as it goes, most of their unbranded or cheap branded guns are rubbish and if you get a good branded gun then their after sales service will let them down, 100% choose a 'proper' airsoft shop over them.. surplusstore, firesupport, milspecsolutions, jdairsoft, or zeroone, these are just a few.. ATB, Marc..
  9. No problem at all mate, if you use the dial to get the get parts etc back to bare metal, just slap it on the parts, bag them up and leave them for a few hours, if you ever need any help on how to get a mirror polished finish just let me know, ill send you a step by step.. the only bits i painted on my scar was the controls and flash hider, the rest i just restored to its original paint finish but the video will explain and show all clearer anyway. lol i need a new project now.. ATB, Marc..
  10. No, no, no. Use the search tool, 3 character minimum length, and do some research and reading about the shop and gun. We generally recommend not buying from any shops with BB in their name; all airsoft guns are BB guns but not all BB guns are airsoft guns. Also have a read of the pinned (sticky) posts on the forum.
  11. So my local airsoft shop let me know the TM SGR12 is available to order ..... the temptation is real!!

    1. SELTS090

      SELTS090

      i ordered one for 460. notified me they changed the price to 600 so i canceled it! i loved the aa12 but it was so sh*tty built!

  12. Look at buying the sr4 mamba is this gun any good?... relinable
  13. It is so such a good gun worth every penny, has awesome recoil and an amazing sound to it. Only drawback is a spungy trigger as the firing mechanism is all the way at the back of the gun so a huge rod connects the trigger to it which results in a long heavy trigger pull. Need to use it again soon though.
  14. Thank you for such a detailed response! I would never have guessed that your SCAR has been painted, looks incredible. I've actually wanted to strip some guns down to their bare metal so that's very useful information. I'll definitely take a look at that video and leave a comment Cheers!
  15. I really want that hephaestus tar
  16. hi bigblackglock, thank you mate.. dial works great for removing paint, but be careful when using it on something that has weak paint underneath, as it can and will remove the original paint finish under the extra added paint and take it back to bare metal, ive used dial paint remover to strip some guns back down to bare metal to then mirror polish them, if you leave the paint remover on for long enough it will eat through most paint finishes on guns. so only use dial paint remover on something that is either dyed painted or blued etc, not sure what the original paint method is on these suppressors, but paint remover does not effect them so it was perfect and fast to remove the extra added spray paint that the last owner added. i just applied it, left it for around 1 minute then wiped of off and repeated that until it was all removed.. Another good method thats takes longer but more friendly for the original paint finish but will still remove most extra added spray paints is ipa pure alcohol.. If you have not seen it yet, look at my scar protect video, my whole scar was covered in the same camo paint as the suppressor was inside and out, i removed it all and took it back to its original finish using ipa pure alcohol, and painted some parts myself.. lol took ages but was worth it.. Happy shooting mate. ATB, Marc..

  19. If this/these item(s) sold through this forum, could those involved in the sale/purchase please leave feedback for each other. https://airsoft-forums.uk/index.php/forum/23-feedback/ This is a general message which helps us speed up forum moderation. Thank you.
  20. Honestly, nice work! I've seen many attempts at paint removal and they usually come out looking a bit dodgy at best, but you've done a perfect job on that. I'll be keeping Diall's in mind should I ever need to remove paint!
  21. Bump open to offers and trades for m4a1 classic

  23. Hi all, just over a week ago i finally got round to restoring My scar L suppressor, i took the camo paint off the suppressor tube but left it on the QD fitting, i think it looks awesome like this and really suits the rifle.. The top section on the picture was how it looked before and bottom is how it looks now. Here are some progress pictures.. I used Dail paint remover to remove the camo paint then i used some RS silicone Oil to bring back the nice black finish on the suppressor tube.. Im liking how this looks now, it really suits the tan and black finish look i have gone for on my custom Scar L.. Got a few things on my list to do, like a few reviews and a prize giveaway video but hopefully in a week or so i can do a little bit more to the scar like changing and test a few new hop up rubbers and correcting the POI. Cant wait. Happy Shooting All... ATB, Marc..
  24. SOLD
  25. SNAP!! It is the TITS isn't it!! Great purchase dude. You got the standard muzzle with yours, i only got tge suppressor which i am fine with but the muzzle is very sexy....
  26. Hi jedi, thank you mate, I am glad you like the video.. Its very rare i will edit out a scence in a video, the only time i really do is if i have no choice, ie, battery dies or i do the video over more then one day lol or if my wife or little girl disturbs the filming, or of course if the video drags on and i need to shorten it.. i need to crack on and do some videos very soon, i have not been able to or around much the last two week due to decorating the house, but im back in my man cave now so next week ill get cracking. happy shooting.. ATB, Marc..
  27. Being an owner of TM recoils magazines I found that video really helpful, thank you.
