I know, the sight is surprisingly light compared lol

 

Yeah 3 un-used (rare are rocking horse poo apparently) 4.5v batteries

 

Yeah powered up mine for the first time earlier this week .... After shorting out the 3xaaa holder twice .... Then soldering the wires in place properly lol

This weekend gone was the first time in a long time that I have had the energy to do anything, but my g/f came over so i didn't get round to powering up my sight. I'm planning to use a hot glue gun to cover the contacts of the AAA holder once I've soldered the wires in place - that's gotta be a lot better than bits of LX tape at preventing short circuits...

Skirmished this for the first time today, very impressed with how it performed although I am going to experiment with barrels as I have a PDI 6.05 that is the right length for it and have also just ordered an Orga 6.23 WBB so will try comparing those vs the standard barrel.

 

 

 

Shiny...Unless thats gas or P*/SMP/etc based, Orga is a waste of time, you won't be able to produce enough consistent air volume to make use of its advantages.

aye, dropped from 386fps to 306fps

 

I'm actually having to sell my 500mm 6.23 because even my Daytona Gun can't pressurise it enough.

To get 350fps I have now fitted an M150 spring so if I were to try getting the 420 allowed when locked to semi I'd need an M180 so not really possible on an AEG without heading towards self destruct.

 

They are excellent barrels though. I grabbed one of their 6.13s for my sniper rifle too and that seems to work pretty well.

At 350 fps it is more accurate than my VSR and SRS snipers which are both running >480fps, I actually think it would give them both a run for their money on range too although unable to test that.

 

Impressed I am, and as a bonus I now no longer have an MED to worry about as it is now chronoing at 349fps pretty consistently. Gonna need some more batteries though I think as I'll be lucky to get a full day out of a 1450 LiPo now it is pulling the M150! :-)

as soon as I get one I'll let you know!

Though a friend got one in a trade and ended up selling his real Aimpoint T1 because he preferred the holosun, that's enough of an endorsement for me.

Must be bloody good then! Would you be able to post some feedback on it once you ave used it?

 

I am in the market for an optic, I am looking at a holo sight mainly, but if I find a really good red dot, then I will get that.

JC? Is the 403 the one with a mini solar panel on the top?

No, the 403GL is the one with the battery on the side and the lower adjustment turrets, I've picked it mostly because it looks most like an aimpoint T1.

Project MP5A2. This isn't complete yet as it still needs a new stock, cocking handle and thread protector for the flash hider. It started life as a TM MP5 and has had a A2/A3 style hand guard and lower receiver fitted. The upper receiver has been replaced with a metal version. Internally it will have a mosfet installed and a few other tweaks. The magazine is a 3D printed version that I made.

I think he means my MP5. The only original parts are the inner barrel, hop and gearbox.

Yeah I guessed that it was the Trigger's broom reference I didnt get. Probably something everyone else got straight away but lost me.

According to Wikipedia (not necessarily reliable) the reference is from Only Fools and Horses -

episode "Heroes and Villains", Trigger wins an award for having owned the same broom for 20 years. He reveals that it has had 17 new heads and 14 new handles, but insists it is still the same broom; this is an example of the Ship of Theseus paradox. This has given rise to the expression "Trigger's broom".

 

Edit: Also from WIki -

The ship of Theseus, also known as Theseus' paradox, is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object. The paradox is most notably recorded by Plutarch in Life of Theseus from the late first century. Plutarch asked whether a ship that had been restored by replacing every single wooden part remained the same ship.

Real awesome project mate, great work. Will be a sweet (and unique) piece all around when it's done for sure.

Possibily an idea for a new thread - British comedy shows - in the General Discusion or Media of the 'Off Topic' section.

So this is my Katana Raptor so far with the Nuprol ACOG and Holographic that I have mounted on an angle for fast CQB needs, AAC Big Dragon Suppressor, AFG2, Three point sling and the two flip up iorn sights are coming off but I left my tool kit in van day I took the picture. I have gone for camo form tape for a fully custom look and I know its not to everyone's taste but I like it. What you guys think? When I finish it will take proper picture with my camera rather than phone
