    What is the point of long rail systems?

    ACM or Element AIM-O 552 clone?

    I had the Aim-O replicas and they were pretty good. The rear lens wasn't severely tinted and there was little to no ghosting, nor reflection. The ACM ones are absolute shite and are barely usable indoors, unless the room is lit by a million lights

    Swerving bbs !

    I've only had mine for 4 days so I can't comment much unfortunately 😅 However, I have experienced the same issue before with different guns. As @Duff said, a good barrel clean and cleaning/inspecting the hop unit/rubber was the solution.

    Where can I get my outer barrel shortened

    Maybe once he takes the job on 😅 Said he can do it but has not responded since, so I assume he has a few projects to do

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Well, the kit arrived today and took about 3 minutes to install, no issues at all. It definitely ups the recoil and RoF, as expected! So far, I am very happy with it, it'll definitely be staying installed. The recoil now reminds me of my old GHK G5 with RATech steel bolt I will probably do some testing later to see how it impacts the gas efficiency, how much weight has been added to the bolt, etc Now, if you'll excuse me, I am going to go back to shooting it 😅

    Where can I get my outer barrel shortened

    You, sir, are a legend! I spoke to him and he is willing to shorten it for me to my specs, at a fraction of the cost of what the CQB barrel costs! Thank you 😀

    Hephaestus obviously doing something right 😅

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    I will let you know A friend of mine told me about it and said it absolutely transforms the gun. Somehow increases the recoil and RoF (to about 1000rpm) simultaneously. There is also a video on YouTube of the kit by Hephaestus if you are interested

    Bits for upcoming PTS Masada build: - Elcan SpectreDR 1-4x - Mini red dot mount for the SpectreDR - Mini red dot for the mount for the SpectreDR (see the theme?) - 180mm x 30mm 14mm Ccw/Cw suppressor - Magpul PTS MOE RVG - Magpul PTS ranger plates (box of 10) - Hephaestus recoil kit for PTS Masada Still waiting for the PTS aluminium rail to arrive, should be here tomorrow. Probably a month for the rest of the stuff. and that concludes my spending for a while. Well, until I see something I want, I suppose. I have an addiction. Help.

    Tokyo Marui scar H woes

    Don't slam the stock into the fixed position and you will be fine. Just press the button (as you would when you are folding it) and put the stock back into place. Should be no issues that way. If it does break, at least you can use the stock as a boot.
  12. Time to search for another Elcan SpectreDR 😫 I gotta stop selling them

      Love mine...great bit of kit!  Weighs a bit, but it can take a knock!

    Where can I get my outer barrel shortened

    Got a similar issue, don't fancy paying £125 for an outer barrel 🤐 Even then, this barrel is still about an inch too long for the project I have in mind... If you find a service, I will also be interested
  14. Parcel prepped for delivery but I gotta wait until Monday for them to deliver 😭 Thanks Parcelforce

      The other week my parcel was prepped on the Friday morning but ParcelForce don't deliver on Saturdays and it was a bank holiday Monday so it said that Tuesday was the earliest it could be delivered. 😒

      That's because DPD's tracking system actually works!!

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    I bought a WE MSK GBBR but then also bought a PTS/KWA Masada GBBR as the WE isn't exactly a performer. Also bought a CQB barrel for the WE. But yeah, the PTS is of much higher quality. Waiting for a PTS aluminium rail to arrive and a Hephaestus recoil kit for the PTS. First pic is of the PTS on the wall of ProAirsoftSupplies, just before buying it. PTS on top in second pic, WE on bottom

    Experience with J.K.ARMY?

    Same thing - item in stock on site but order cancelled due to actually being out of stock. Refunded the next day. This happened a couple of days ago. Ordered from them three times before with no issue though.

    RedWolfAirsoft HK delivery times

    I ordered 3 GBB mags from RW HK a few months ago. Also got held (a week after ordering) and had to fill out a firearms declaration form. Filled the form out but had to explain to them over the phone (twice, the first rep must have hung the phone up due to not understanding) that I had not ordered a firearm and that the magazines did not have a firing mechanism. Absolute pain in the ass. Took a few days for everything to go back to normal and for my mags to be released. Then of course, the lovely letter demanding the handling fees and whatnot to be paid arrived soon after. Could have bought another mag with the cost of that
  18. Anyone know how much modification is required to fit a PTS Masada handguard onto a WE MSK?

      I only ever put 7-8 mags through it max, then never used after that so it sat for a long time before I sold it so can't really comment on that side of things I'm afraid

      Bah, if you wanted that you should have just bought an XCR. Thats basically what it is.

      Not particularly a fan of it and I believe it is AEG  (I only use GBB). ACR stock is my favourite and the PTS rail reminds me of a 416 in terms of the shape. Got the MSK today, just waiting on the CQB barrel and rail now :) Very happy so far

    Interesting/unique GBBRs?

    Right, so I sold all my guns and it feels weird (basically, I want another). However, I am stuck for choice. I usually like the more unique, interesting or obscure guns, do you have any recommendations or favourites which may fall into this category? As per the title, it must be a gas blowback, not AEG. Preferably one that also had a lot of customisation available (that is the most enjoyable aspect of airsoft for me). So far, I have had (for at least a month): *6x KWA Kriss Vectors (various builds) 2x Umarex/VFC HK G28 Umarex/VFC HK417 ARES DSR-1 *GHK/Ratech M4 (built from ground up) GHK M4 (standard) GHK AK74MN GHK G5 *ASG/KWA MP9 3x WE KAC PDWs WE HK416 WE SCAR H 3x Umarex/KWA MK23s 3x TM G17 (2x RWA Agency Arms versions) TM G18C WE G17 WE G18C * marked ones were the favourites which I regret selling - MP9 was especially cool. I am sure I am forgetting some (it is 05:20 am) and there are a few others but I won't mention as I owned them for about a week or so before selling them, usually for being absolutely crap. From owning the above, I have realised that I much prefer shorter, lighter and generally more CQB oriented guns. That being said, I do like DMR/sniper length stuff like the G28 or DSR-1, but just find them impractical. So, are there any guns that I may find of interest that you may know of? 🤔 Not particularly a fan of bullpups, especially the L85 series (I find them rather unappealing aesthetically). I was contemplating a (very expensive) TM MWS SBR custom build, but it would still just be an AR afterall. Also thought about an ACR/Masada (I only got to play with a WE MSK briefly). The WE M14 crossed my mind too but isn't exactly short, nor light. Thank you!

    Interesting/unique GBBRs?

    Not a fan of bullpups unfortunately but I agree, it is most definitely unusual 😅 I have secured the MSK and have purchased a CQB barrel setup, here's to hoping it works! Now just need to get a few more WE MSK/Pmags. Also, attachments 🤔

    Interesting/unique GBBRs?

    I was lucky with my receiver set, it was a direct drop in for everything with no modification, but I heard of many others having issues. RATech's tolerances must be all over the place! I was looking at their MSK trigger box to be honest. I have not seen those nozzles but that sounds incredibly interesting! Bloody hoping this thing works, seems hit and miss from the YouTube videos

    Seeing this picture always makes me wanna build another 😓 Here is the parts list from when I sold it: RATech receiver New Age ejection port cover New Age Forward assist Hephaestus flat trigger Spear arms ambi fire selector Magpul fixed MOE Carbine Magpul PRS extended pad Magpul MOE pistol grip Magpul Enchanced trigger guard SVOBODA front end (KAC AAC URX 3.0 Rail, steel outer barrel, gas block, gas tube, KAC AAC steel flash hider) Magpul PTS m4-2000 suppressor DYTAC URX covers Xtm handstop RATech steel bolt GHK 1j nozzle Elcan SpectreDR w/ Docter sight RATech magic body pin Element PEQ 15 MP7 sights Other GHK externals (buffer tube, mag release, FCG etc) Samoon bilateral charging handle FGA heavy buffer FGA recoil spring RATech winter spring PDI 6.05 375mm inner Madbull blue bucking GHK G5 magazine GHK GMAG x3 Magpul ranger plates x3 I also had a 3D printed aluminium Seekins style bolt release, but that turned up a week after I sold the M4 (forgot I had ordered it from the US). Agreed again @Wo1f, the SCAR H magazines were immensely good! I am hoping the WE MSK/Pmags are better than the average STANAG, but I severely doubt it.
  23. BigBlackGlock

    Interesting/unique GBBRs?

    Pretty much hit the nail on the head there @Wo1f! I managed to find a WE MSK and a couple of potential fixes to the issues they inherently seem to have. If all else fails, I am sure it will make a nice wall hanger 😂 WE sure do have a wide variety but it is just a shame they aren't too good. I suspect the MSK will also require aftermarket internals to actually do anything that it is supposed to. I am definitely keeping an eye on GHK's recent activities, that is for sure. The MSK didn't set me back too much, so I may also still be able to look into something like an Mp7 in the meantime. Thank you!
  24. BigBlackGlock

    Interesting/unique GBBRs?

    WE MSK is definitely a strong contender and I especially love the ACR stock (had one on my SCAR H). Love GHK but not bullpups unfortunately (wish GHK made a wider range of guns!). MP7 is an excellent suggestion (Reminds me of the good old days of Call of Duty 😆), but never know which to get between the VFC, TM, WE or KWA (unsure which is 1:1 scale, which has full travel bolt, most reliable, etc). Edit: It seems the MSK has been discontinued and is a PITA to find in stock
