Main Irish Airsoft have it but it's the 4.5mm version <_<

 

My heart's set on a Hi capa though. The reliability and the fact that's it's a 'kin Hicapa makes it almost irresistible,and AirsoftEire have it for only 160€!

 

I would like the Makarov,but I need someone to downgrade it to below 328 FPS and it's a Win Gun OEM so parts are hard to find,and I'm a whore for long term reliability and that really kills it for me.

 

GHK Did plan to make a Makarov,in early 2013,according to Samoon.Co2 Powered,based on the Shigapov PMM. Full steel too,so I'd guess it would have under 1J of FPS.

Yeah, and the Tokarevs only hold 11 BB's too. I knew the SRC one had a poor rep, but not the WE one. Can you remember where you heard that, M_P?

Milspec solutions (and they sell them so I'd say it's a reputable source lol) Seen a few other people mention that they aren't very good round about too.

Can't say I like the look of any Hicapa, UTJ. Re the Makarov, yeah a GHK full steel one would be lovely, but I think I'm gonna get the Umarex from Poland anyway cos it's cheap enough to get another one if it breaks before GHK get their shit together.

My latest toy......JG BAR10. Not bad for a cheapy sniper rifle. 405FPS and only real issue was the snapped scope rail.

 

It had been painted by previous owner and as it turns out was a 2-tone at some point. The paint was very rough and well not done by me!

 

55187D1D-596E-4C41-8E8F-DB206A8AF3CC-388

 

So i have cleaned her up a bit. Stock was rubbed down to removed the old paint layers down past the bright green! Barrel was also rubbed down to the original finsih and then primed and painted. This had to be done twice as the first go the paint bubbled up very badly and i had to start all over again!

 

Few hours work................................end result

OK so maybe it was not finished!

 

I really like the look of the plain OD but decided to give it a little camo.

 

So it has:

 

OD base coat

with snakeskin in dark brown, stone grey and cappuccino.

So it seems Mr. Yóuchāi has graced our shores because both my new torch and my Skorpion mags just arrived...

To call the torch 'bright' is a serious understatement: I'll take a couple of pics later when it's dark. As you can see, the Skorpion box mags fit into the real steel mag pouch, but the real bonus is that the drum mag fits exactly into one of the slots in my SVD mag pouch, so it's perfect for sniper backup:

 

1 x SVD & 1 x Skorpion mid cap in the back of the SVD pouch (which can be used like a dump pouch) ready to load as soon as I emerge from the safe zone.

 

2 x SVD mid caps in the front SVD pouch slots

 

1 x SVD & 1 x Skorpion hi cap in a front SVD pouch slots

 

1 x Skorpion mid cap & 1 x Scorpion mini hi cap in Skorpion mag pouch

 

 

I'm a lean mean getting hit machine :lol:

Put some white paint on it then scuff the hell out of it, like on your mag, then wrap some cloth tape around it so you can only see the paint at the top and bottom. If you use a colour of tape lighter than black, coat your hand in something like brown coloured whiteboard marker and hold the grip so the ink transfers. Touch that up and maybe add a little fire ash, to make it look like dirt picked up through hard use in battle.

 

How's that?

 

I'll have to post a couple of new ones of my AKS-74U too, because it has undergone a couple of changes.

Oh yeah, and my new AKS-47 - TM base gun w/ Inokatsu body kit - it's on a par with LCT bodies I'd say, but obviously it looks far too new and shiny right now. I couldn't fit any more AK mags on the chair, so there are some AK-74 mags missing :lol:

I may be a western gun lover, but AKs always have that simple rugged charm they share with heavy machinery- I think I've decided on my next gun, and my wallet has a loooooong time to recover from my M933 :D

Fire doesn't kill an AK, silly! as a matter in fact I think it would probably disturb you even more ;)

yea, I refer to them as "combat machines" sometimes (shame G&G uses that term aswell).. neither do I hate western guns, the Ruger 10/22 is actually one of my favourite rifles all times:)

So I promised some pics with my new torch. It's an Ultrafire body with a CREE XM-LT6 1600LM LED & takes 2 x 18650 3.7-4.2V Lithium batteries -

Pictured here next to my other CREE XML T6 powered torch = 1 x 18650 battery

There's too much ambient light here for my phone to distinguish just how much brighter the torch beam is than the other sources.

Here are some comparing the two torches side by side:

- the single battery is a better quality one rated at 4.2V 4200mAh & unused since being charged last Friday.

- the twin batteries are rated 3.7V 3000mAh & can't remember when last charged (weeks ago).

- with small amount of ambient light.

bui7.jpg

- in complete darkness.

- this is a main road so brightly lit. Again it doesn't do the difference in brightness justice, as that porch light seems like a brighter source than the torch beam. In fact shining the torch in that direction lights up the wall all around the light, it's just that it shows as yellow on my phone, not white as it is.

Ian, every picture of your AK's or SVD could be counted as gun porn, please refrain from posting these without a warning, my wallet is still giving me the cold shoulder haha! God I want an AK.
