I'm not at all sold on the Orgus hype. The theory only just works in TK Hop Twist barrels and there's a vortex there. What Orgus cannot get around is the eff ay see tee FACT that the wider the barrel is, the wider the exit cone. End of. It may well be possible under certain conditions with certain BB's to get positive results, but snap firing under skirmish conditions, even well aimed fire into uncertain air conditions, humidity, barometric pressure, colon disposition, etc... I just don't see it.

 

But thanks for the link - at twenty five bar for a 1 point sling, i'll make me own :)

Considering the TUC clips cost about 60 quid. 25 quid ain't too bad.

25 is quite a lot for a sling, the TUC's are just very expensive, the two aren't comparable in price, only function.

I think we're overdue a picture of a gun on this thread, so here's my G&G Top Tech TR15.

Nice, but it needs a decent suppressor.

It needs about 3" out of the barrel!

Hahah, midget barrel ftw ;)

It's just a myth. They just look bigger in comparison.

I like the smaller suppressor for this gun, but in truth I want to shorten the barrel for a larger suppressor. I'm also thinking of replacing the 551 andf 3x Magnifier sights with an ACOG.

my new AEG has just turned up, need to sort a proper riser for the red dot sight rather than the double stack on it currently, can't wait to skirmish it to compare it's performance against my G5.

No to rain on your parade mate, but you're gonna want to take another look at the upper part of that handguard. It's pretty evident from that picture it's quite a way from being fitted on properly.

 

If you can post up a shot of the area where it meets the upper receiver (preferably from an angle looking down at the top of the rifle) we should be able to get that sorted. There's a couple of different copies of the KAC RAS and depending on how yours attaches will depend on the fix. But from that picture it almost gives the impression the entire unit might be on backwards, either that, your fastening bracket is in the wrong place, or the barrel nut/corresponding channel in the rail is way off spec.

 

Sorry for late reply, didn't see this until yesterday. Here are some pics of the join, top down:

My mate gave me these with the RAS as well:

Anything significant about them aside from the crushed section of the barrel nut?

apologies for the lack of a decent place to photograph it, but my new toy is about 90% complete. It needs a new stock (either CTR or Crane, undecided which) and of course a sling.

 

Oh, and the LiPo batteries I have don't fit in the RIS at the moment, so I may need to get someone clever to sort that out for me (less wiring, smaller plugs etc).

M4A1 SOPMOD Block 2;

base gun is a Tokyo Marui M4A1 SOCOM recoil shock, madbull 12.5" RIS2 in DE, Specter DR (fixed 4x), element M3x long, vanaras PEQ15, generic foregrip and some ergo rail ladders.

It's a tm recoil so the buffer tube is full of springs and a weight

what M_P said, I'm sort of regretting going down the SOCOM route now in honesty, if I'd just ponied up the extra cash and got a SOPMOD wouldn't be having any of these issues!

Have a possible solution in the offing....

as you can see the batteries fit without the lower half of the RIS being fitted, but it's kinda snug. the wiring is an issue that I'll have to sort but mostly it's just fitting the batteries in!

So, the plan is to remove this material:

That'll allow the batteries to sit as they are now in the gun, once the wiring is squared away it should be fine.

You have a PEQ on there, could you not just stick the battery in that? Mind you if that was an option I guess you'd have done it.
You're right that its a bit if a downside to the socom but equally it does all you the choice of more than 3 different stocks so I think its worth the slight hassle of battery fitting. That said mine just has the stock hand guard atm, I may feel differently about it if I had a low profile rail on it.

yeah, PEQ is one option, but I'd like to be able to put a functional one on there, got some opinions coming through on various brands of LiPo that'll fit, so we'll see what comes of it.
