  1. This old thread sure came back to life - I bought a GLS in the end, and sure glad I did. But unfortunately, just as soon as I was really kitted out, I'm now in a position of having to offload all my airsoft gear. Sods law!
  2. Goodbye, farewell, adieu adieu adieu!


    So I'm taking a job that has a long contract, will involve me moving around a lot, and doesn't leave me with really any chance for airsoft. So, before I leave my lovely family house for a small apartment, it's time for me to sell my airsoft kit. Yep, all of it. If a few years down the line, I have the chance to get back into airsoft, I'd love to, but for now, it's "f***-me-that's a-lot-of-stuff-Friday". Taking a long time to go through my boxes of stuff, find all my receipts, get photos up etc!


    Have made a thread in the Gear For Sale section, so feel free to paroose at one's leisure. Had fun putting a little gift basket of bonus treats together though. I do love giving prezzies!

      Ha Proffrink, you might not be far off!


      Lozart, it certainly won't be as fun as going ballistic with a belt of hi caps every month!

      Shame to see you sell it all Ash. Hope the job is worth it!

      I'd fancy your Glock 19 - but can't stretch to the job lot asking price! :D

      Haha, I've got so much stuff, if I start splitting it up, I'll never be able to keep on top of it all. I'll be buying boxes left right center.


      To be honest, when I finished the spreadsheet having counted up all the receipts, I was pretty surprised myself at how much I'd spent since September!

  3. Had to return some mags to them that wouldn't fit my CM16, sent them 2 emails with no response, couldn't get through on the phone and they seem to be the only shop where the support on their website just puts you through to another random customer. Eventually gave up and sold the mags to someone who had a compatible gun. I think they might be one of the busiest airsoft retailers in the country, but I suspect they could do with hiring some additional staff to be able to support so many customers. If it's local it's easy as you can just walk in.
  4. Currently going for a new job where playing airsoft won't be feasible for at least a couple of years, so I'm "handing in my official notice to Airsoft", so to speak, which is sad, but necessary. So, everything must go. Got quite a lot of stuff going here, so would prefer a job lot, but I'm open to reasonable offers. All the sidearms have been stripped down, cleaned and greased up again, running smooth, all gas mags airtight, all AEG and sniper mags full working order. No swaps, would prefer not to do any splits either. Payment by PayPal (buyer pays PayPal fees) or Bank Transfer. A lot of items here, I can arrange shipping, deliver myself (within a reasonable distance), or buyer can collect. Based in Bedfordshire between Hitchin and Biggleswade. Starting price point for the job lot: £1,580 - see bottom for details. This is a long post, so here's a contents guide for easy scrolling: - Primary Weapons - Sidearms - Rigs/Pouches - Clothing - Misc - Lot cost, valuation and sale price - Pictures PRIMARIES M4 Bundle Make: CMYA (P&J Branding) Item: CM.007 M4 AEG Accessories: - Vertical grip - Tan rubber rail covers - Precision 6.03mm inner barrel - Guarder SP100 AEG Spring - EOTech Red/Green Reticle clone with Lens Protector - Magpul PTS MBUS Rear Sight - DBoys Gas Block/Flip-up Sight, fitted with Laylax Tritium nightsight (Purchased July 2017) - 3x 400rd CMYA Metal M4 Hi Cap Magazines with genuine MagPul mag assists. - Tan 3-point sling - Also includes original 6.08mm barrel, 420fps spring and front A2 sight.

And obviously, this goes with out saying, all RIFs require buyer to be 18+ and have either UKARA, VCRA defence, or VCRA exemption. Pictures: (Obviously a lot to photograph here and I have limited floor space to put it all out to display it in, I'll do my best to get everything in as detailed as I can, if there's something you can't see, just let me know).
  5. This is a CMYA ZM51. I used to have one myself - it has a fixed hop up, certainly not a skirmish gun, but a fun little garden plinker and certainly has some power in the spring, so 400fps doesn't surprise me.
  6. What can I say? I'm good at selling products I like and use myself.
  7. Sounds really awful to say, but if his last update to anyone was on June 8th saying he'd suddenly gone into hospital, are you sure he's "still with us", so to speak?
  8. Make sure the videos you're watching aren't sponsored by the manufacturer. They're not really reviews, they're just marketing.
  9. Would probably be easier to retrofit an existing site with the relevant props for a special event day - like when RIFT turned Coms Site 3 into a Zombie Nightmare night. They brought in a battered cop car, humvee, tank traps, all sorts of props and actors and stuff and it was an epic night.
  10. Word of advice, NEVER "remember where you left" your shells. I did that with a couple of sig mags I reloaded on the run, came back and some tit had done walkies with them. Put them straight in a secure pouch or you probably won't see them again.
  11. Remind me to come to your skirmishes, swap your AEG battery for a nearly dead one when you're not looking, then stalk you for the rest of the day
  12. If you're exclusively playing CQB, I'd put in a lower powered spring like an SP85 or SP90, but only if you're feeling disappointed with the ROF and don't want to spend shedloads doing stuff to a motor that's already decent out the box for its price. Play some more first, then you can ask yourself your question and you'll already know the answer.
  14. If you have your heart set on a revolver, then by all means go for it. Personally, I would never use something with such a small ammo capacity. Bear in mind, in terms of sidearms, you'll have 6 shots before you need to reload each shell (or use a speedloader, which can still take a while), whereas most other people will have upwards of 20 shots, and a quick mag change. I'm going out tonight with a P226 with 120+1rds of ammo across 5 mags, and yes, there have been times when I've got pinned down and had to use it all. If I'd have had a revolver, I wouldn't have lasted long at all. As for hop up, I couldn't imagine having much fun running a system without one, since everyone else will have so much advantage over me.
  15. Just ordered some aurora paint which is apparently a little better, time will tell though.
