  1. I suggested this a few years ago and got told it was a sh*t idea lol.
  2. Not really a fan of lasers as I've come across some real class acts deliberately shining them in players eyes. I've never heard of anyone suffering eye damage in airsoft from lasers, but I certainly had a sense of humour failure seeing players give it a damn good go. However, like most things it only takes a few people to ruin it for everyone, which is why I would imagine most sites don't allow full auto at close range. It doesn't help that you can get stupidly cheap lasers online that are definitely not safe. I can certainly see why green lasers are categorically banned at sites I play at as a chap at work picked one up for around £15 and in a bright office briefly looking at the dot(not laser) on the floor left an after image when you blinked for a few minutes....
  3. Battle Lakes is a really good site, only been once but the atmosphere, standard of play and marshaling were all excellent. The terrain is nicely varied too from open wooded areas where you need to work from tree to tree to move up through to areas packed with dense foliage that's ideal for players to ambush you from. My only criticism was I hid in a spot that blocked a big chunk of the enemy team moving up and a photographer then stood in a spot which meant the other team could use them as cover whilst they pushed up. However I very much doubt they knew I was there as I kept hearing players on the other team saying there's someone there but he's too well camouflaged to spot
  4. The review details feed and accuracy issues out of the box?
  5. My standard setup is 6 x 120BB mags in my TM recoils and 3 pistol mags for my HK45. When I started I think I used to go with 9 mags for the rifle and 3 for the pistol which was just too much. The current setup tends to easily cover me until the point its a half day game with really heavy firefights like you'd sometimes get at the sandpit.
  6. The only time I've ever had an issue with TM pistols is firing around 10 shots rapid fire when it's subzero and at that point you/I need to learn to aim better. CO2 is blanket banned at some sites and whilst people say it's more reliable I've not had a need for more reliable than green gas when I don't basically force the gun to vent.
  7. I'd suggest you watch this:
  8. It was I think around a month ago there was a post from them on facebook with loads of people going berserk as they were sayng that the full 500 piece order had to be completed before any were being produced. This seems to have since changed but that does mean for all intents and purposes they were asking for more money. This is the primary reason I don't back concepts and instead buy tangible products. Anyone who is a PC gamer I would imagine is all too aware of all the times creators are seen to massively take the piss, then lo and behold never make a final product.
  9. I've been using a Blackhawk SERPA P30 holster for my TM HK45 for a year or two now so I'd imagine any similar P30 retention holster will fit yours.
  10. To be honest there's no reason not to just buy an iMax B6 as they are the go to charger and they are cheaper. Knowing Nuprol tat they would probably be able to prove me wrong when I say I've never heard of anyone having LiPos catch fire without physically damaging them.
  11. Not sure about top 5 but I've always rated TM on the basis they shoot well and the only issues I have ever experienced have been fixed with cleaning or been down to user error. I own a Krytac and a G&P LMG and the G&P is so much better in every aspect(fire rate, trigger response and accuracy as well as external build, although the M63 stocks are known to crack) except mag capacity. I don't even think the Krytac is a lemon it just is very disappointing in comparison. On the flip side I know multiple people that have had horrible feeding issues with G&P M4s that they have never been able to fix.
  12. I think they are worth it in terms of range, easily. When I got my first VSR which was upgraded when I bought it I was shocked at how far it could shoot. It wasn't hard at all to find spots that I had solid accuracy but people couldn't hit me lobbing shots. I'd say a bigger thing to consider is whether you can find a style of play you enjoy with a sniper rifle. If I just used my LMG as a suppressive weapon like you keep seeing people talk about I'd have thrown mine in the bin as it barely works in Airsoft.
  13. My choice would be something that shoots well at or below 350 like a TM recoil or Krytac, I've also seen Cyma M14s shoot very very well with only the barrel and hop rubber being changed. The other good thing with the Cyma M14s is they are not only very cheap for what you are getting but there's loads of variants to choose from. It does again depend on if you wanted the option to play at other sites, but DMR rules in the UK suggest a lot of sites don't really want people to use them. I've come across things like 370 FPS but with a MED or a 1 second delay on shots, which is actually slower than I can fire my spring VSR with half decent accuracy.
  14. What about the Cyma SVD? To be honest I'd be surprised if anything other than the Real Sword SVD shoots well enough at 450 FPS to warrant using it over a half decent 350 FPS AEG without any modifications. Personally I wouldn't recommend a DMR or sniper rifle to anyone who just wants a stock gun as it's rare to find ones that shoot at all well out of the box. Also 450 FPS is actually on the more lenient side of DMR rules if you look through the sites in the UK, worth considering if you want to take it to other sites.
  15. I started going on my own after the guy i went with stopped after 2 games... It can be a bit daunting, but it's also a good way to make friends.
