  1. Recently came across this nifty little program - Gunstruction. A bit like Pimp My Gun, but beefed up in full 3d with a sh*t ton of options. A DMR/Sniper build I came up with from an M4 platform, utilising a monolithic upper receiver and rail system, match trigger, 24" barrel and other little gizmos for it to pack some punch for a 5.56 And an LMG with a vented free float handguard, iron sights, high capacity drum mag and heavy barrel. At the end, a 7.62mm carbine I call The Boombox! Share your builds!
  2. I had trouble with contacts falling out or getting a bit of dirt stuck in them running around in the mud. Never again.
  3. I would imagine they will fog pretty badly - they're not designed for active sports use, and they sound like by being very protective, they also don't have much in terms of ventilation. Interested to hear how they turn out.
  4. It is EN166 B. That’s where I got the info from 1BT9 are all the different protection ratings. Eg, B is EN166 B. T is EN166 T which is the high temperature particles 1 = Optical Class 1 B = B Mechanical (/ballistic) resistance T = T Mechanical (/ballistic) high temperature resistance 9 = Thermic Risk protection
  5. The ballistic info is available right there on the webpage. It’s rated for class B mechanical strength, which is to resist a 0.86g ball bearing fired at 400fps. I would say you’re fine for airsoft where you’re unlikely to find anything heavier than half that weight travelling half that speed. And those are the powerful snipers. Use dem eyes and dat mouse and clicky on da page
  6. Question: If you were to leave a Sig P226 somewhere in the house and forget where it was, where might it be?

     

    oops!

      I would suggest it’s in the last place you look, probably a teapot :)

  7. Hi Markus, I never received any more info from you, just letting you know this is no longer available. Hope you find a radio set suitable in the future
  8. I got mine reglazed on a different prescription at no charge. I don't know if it'll cover if it breaks, you may have to buy an insurance policy for that. Of course, when you do go in, they'll try the upsell on you for options extras, that's where they make their money from the free reglazing. The "and since you're getting new lenses, why not try these special anti-glare etc. etc"
  9. Yeah it looks like something worth just dropping off at a tech to do.
  10. Awesome! Now you just need to get the RIS and bipod/foregrip for it.
  11. I suppose I just like the idea of their “lifetime service” - any time you need new lenses, it’s all included in the original price even if it’s 20 years down the road. I didn’t see how much you were paying to send yours away..
  12. £190 to put in lenses on Bolle Raiders?! Bolle designed the inserts to be a standard frame shape, there’s no fancy cutting or anything needed. Find a local vision express, they’ll probably have the lenses already in stock. Your probably looking at £40 for them to fit the lenses, plus an extra £20 or so if you want things like anti scratch (not really necessary since they’re behind ballistic lenses), anti glare, etc. And you can change the lenses when your prescription changes, free of charge I believe.
  13. I bought my raiders off amazon, then took them into Vision Express to get the prescription done on them. I think I paid something like £60, for scratch resistant and anti glare. I didn't bother with the insurance though because when you read the fine print, it excludes "action sports". The good thing about going in somewhere local rather than sending them off somewhere, is you can always take them back in if there's an issue. On my first game, I was getting a headache focusing on my front sight with them, I was able to take them back in straight after and they switched the lenses for a slightly weaker prescription there and then. I rang a Bolle retailer up the road from me first, they quoted about £200 or something ridiculous for the inserts.
  14. You know you could have just bought varifocal ballistic eye pro in the first place right?
  15. Does your site permit 500fps DMR? You could always go down the SR25 route and recreate the LM308MWS. The Ares SR25 Carbine will get you a good start and has the full length rail too.
