  1. i would say look at the vector AEG as there are already people working on dropping a HPA setup into it. the Vector GBB will be expensive to purchase as well you would either have to tap all the gas mags to build a high cap mag for it
  2. you would think that this sort of crime the police would want to look into more than some others. the fact that RIF's were stolen and could be used to commit other crimes. like most airsoft thefts i doubt you will ever see any results from it. one or many people could just randomly sell them on websites or elsewhere. could even ship them oversea's. the pyro etc again, such person/s could just keep them and use them if they actually play. Someone that knows the site and has been probably a few times is probably the culprit in some way. the fact that a lot of airsoft sites are hidden away and not really publicly advertised means you would have to know it was there in the first place
  3. basically need to know how the internals go back together, it was jammed so i took it apart but the part that i believe was jamming it dropped out so i don't know where / how it goes back in. any video i've seen just talks about the barrel or gas parts of the gun
  4. hi all, does anyone have any video's or information regarding the assembly / dis-assembly of an A&K winchester model? i've searched around but not found anything related. currently its stripped back to the bare shell.
  5. i would love to go but working that day as well as playing that sunday up north
  6. where in hampshire are you? there are a few depending where you are
  7. i haven't seen anything new since the fire burned down their shop. my understanding is that everything at the moment would go via the website.
  8. If you were there on Saturday, he was the one that got shot just above his left eyebrow. it was a bit of a bleeder!
  9. i'm another one that suffers from sweat inside the goggle and what not. on both my fan assisted ones and my ESS glasses. after every game i normally come back and give them a clean of anti-fog spray. a couple of times i've had to come back early as the vision got worse.
  10. is there any further news / interest? as those that want to come down would need to book a hotel for it
  11. helmets are good for some sites and setups. I've got a fast helmet but recently i've been wearing hat and glasses as i just end up sweating all over the place.
  12. I'd be up for it. as long as the date doesn't change to the 11th Nov. @warlord might be up for it as well with some of the gang?
  13. being one of the above to attend, my main points are: Getting there: As it's in the middle of the town centre there aren't any signs saying where it is. I got there earlier than our main group and ended up walking the whole way around the building trying to find a sign or some sort of visible entrance. in the end where we had originally looked it was the right place, but again no signs to advise this in any way. the signs that were there all pointed to a gallery which was the opposite door On-site shop: probably the better part of the site. guns, ammo and other bits available. tuck shop with cold drinks and some sweets mainly. prices aren't out of this world but certainly not the cheapest. Marshals: no visible marshals for pretty much the whole day. No one in high vis jackets advising people of generally being there for people to ask questions. Every marshal they had was playing the whole day and never really made themselves stand out. Chrono: as mentioned above. it was a bit of a joke. their chrono's were all over the place. I had checked both rifles the day before and they were well within the limits set by the site. when going through their chrono, you used your own ammo / mags. It isn't a major problem but some players using different weighted ammo meant they kept having to change the settings on the chrono. Another site i've used asked the weight, you shot and they said yes / no as they could tell if its safe or not. one of the younger players were using black coloured BB's. for some reason that was not explained the person doing the chrono said that no coloured BB's are to be used and can only use white. have no idea why this was said and i assume the kid managed to get some standard coloured ammo as he was playing during the day. Their listed site FPS is 340, but when going through the chrono, it was mentioned on more than one occasion that there was going to be lots of "ouchies" because there seemed to be lots of players with weapons close to their limit. at the end of the day it's a very close CQB site so short range hits are to be expected and as long as the weapon is withing field limits there shouldn't be any problems. It sort of gave the impression that normally they have lots of lower powered weapons on site. as well, none of the guns were tagged in any way to say they had passed which meant you could of brought out a untested weapon and started using it with no issues. Safe Zone: the "safe zone" if you can call it that was 2 rooms that branched off from one of the main rooms. Both rooms were just protected with a door each. i would of expected some netting for the time where players are coming in and out during game plays and could get caught in cross fire. The main shop / toilets, although are down their own corridor they aren't really covered by any protection, if you happened to take a wrong turn you could of ended up in the shop with a loaded weapon. lots of dry firing as well throughout the day with no player marshals advising not to do it. Parking: it states on their website that there is no onsite parking and that you'd have to use one of the 2 local NCP car parks instead. they mention that is apparently £4 for the day between the hours of 11am and 5pm but as you have to get there before hand it ended up costing us £12 to park for the day. It would be nice if they could get a deal with NCP to either get fixed rate tickets or some form of discount so it's not so bad.
  14. if you want it just for display purposes and don't intend to shoot it, can't you just open it up and remove the contents of the gearbox and therefore it won't be able to shoot
  15. it's got to be the way Redwolf are importing the items into the UK via their courier. they must not be declaring it correctly so it just gets flagged up and customs.
