It is plastic (why would you need metal if it's non blowback?). It's a TM clone and the TM one was full plastic I believe. Unusually for a TM clone costing half the price, they actually improved the design with the inner barrel extension. It should take TM magazines.

Discount codes if u need em:

edit: oh you mean is it black plastic painted blue? I doubt it, the black ones are branded as ASG, the blue ones as HFC so its almost certainly blue plastic. I shall paint mine, possibly in khaki so it doesn't get mixed up with all the others at the courthouse :)

Yeah, it's a good pistol - few moving parts too, so unlikely to break easily. At the sale price of fifty notes I'm tempted: the USP frame fits very nicely in my hand. Let me know when you get yours if the slide is painted blue or blue plastic, if you wouldn't mind?

 

I got my ASG Mk23 from here http://www.airsoftarmoury.co.uk/acatalog/ASG-Mk23-Assassin-203.html out of stock at the moment but at £49.99 the best price I found.

Thanks lads. Yeah, what I actually want is an Umarex KWA KP45 Match, but I'm not sure when, or if I'll be able to afford one. In the meantime I could do with a USP that isn't CO2, fires under 350FPS, but not so far under that the drop in range from my Palco will piss me off so much I'll wish I hadn't bothered. But maybe I should just try and save up...

Well its arrived and yep, plastic but such good quality it took a moment to be sure. The blue anodised look is actually very convincing and is kinda growing on me.

Just bought a tan shirt and a mtp hip pad from meanandgreen.com.

 

I'm very impressed with the hip pad. It genuine issued one so it's used but for £10 it fits really well and it's solid construction.

 

What's everyone think of the tan shirt? I'm getting bored of full Multicam so I thought tan would mix it up. I might get some tan trousers to go along with it.

^^Yeah, the shirt works well. Dunno about tan kecks as well though - a bit US Navy.

 

Would you do me a favour? Measure the inside of your new hip pad, please. It's possible I could use one as a back support instead of the black one I currently use, which would go nicely with the blufor loadout I'm building.

I'm about a 31" waist and it fits fine. What waist size are you?

Yeah, your waist measurement doesn't help much because I would wear it much higher up*. I'm about 36-7 so I buy 38 / 96 to be sure of comfort these days. Now I've thought more about it, I need to know how long it is from the buckle to edge of the opposite side of the pad and also how long the trailing belt is.

 

Oh yeah, and I won the auction for this:

151192639678_1.jpg3x CREE XM-L T6 LED 3600 LM Lumens Waterproof Torch - £16 delivered ~ dove-xx

 

Imagine the strobe on this bastard!?!

 

EDIT: * what I mean is that i'm slimmer than my waist size higher up, especially when my back protector is pulled as tight as it needs to be for proper support.

Just treated to myself to an early Xmas present:

 

A TM MP7A1 GBB got to say feels amazingly comfortable and easy to manoeuvre looking forward to puting it through its paces

It doesn't come with a belt, you thread your own belt through it. Not sure what you mean, I'm confused! :P

 

I've got a 1800lm light. They're super bright! My has a fault on it though, sometimes it just decides its not going to turn on.

Oh right, I get you. Can you tell me how long it is from one end of the pad to the other then, please.

 

Yeah, I've got 3 single XML T-6 LED torches: 1 is dodgy, 2 are great, so I spose i'll go with Meatloaf on that :lol:

 

I'm hoping for 'kin ridiculous from this new'un tho!

 

 

Edit: actually I've just remembered I have 4 - so 3 out of 4 beats Meatloaf :lol:

It's 34" long and 6" wide around the back. I just looked at the website and I think I got the last one, they're out of stock.

It's quiet a good website, cheap shirts. If I see any other good deals I'll keep you informed Ian!

How bright are the good ones? I'm using a small 1600lm ultrafire. It's a good light but I don't think its 1600lms.

Yeah, they used to offer cashback through topcashback too, but no more. I think my best bet might be to get some MTP ripstop nylon or something similarly lightweight and make a cover for my proper back support. I'll be able to do a few different covers. It's just getting round to it :lol:

This is a single 18650 battery one vs a dual 18650:

In the outdoor one, the ambient light has made my phone camera screw up the contrast - the porch lamp across the road isn't really as bright as it seems, the brighter torch can easily light up the wall next to that lamp, but my phone can't see it :lol:

 

I was surprised to learn a few months ago that there is no accepted standard way of measuring lumen output, but what I also found out is that 1600 is what a single XML T6 is capable of, according to the manufacturer, not what the torches kick out. I forget the deets now, but I'm pretty sure the voltage wasn't the same as used in these torches anyway...

I have a single and a dual one. The dual one is rated 1800lm and the single is 1600lm. I really like the output of the dual but that's the faulty one. Don't suppose you have an extra one? I know they're cheap from china but they take so long to arrive!

 

I thought when the police test out the tint in car windows the machine they use measures lumens?

Yeah, I think that's right, but I spose their method uses pre-calibrated gear. The thing with commercially available LED's is that there is no standard distance of meter from light source, nor surroundings/reflectors, etc. so while we can reasonably hope that the figures for the products of a given manufacturer should be be consistent with each other, once it comes to various Chinese factories putting LED's in torches, even if the figures they were quoting were the output from the torch, rather than the potential of the LED, we could hardly trust them anyway. It's not just Chinese manufacturers though - that was my main point really: there is no internationally recognised standard for any manufacturer to adhere to so they just make up their own tests.

It's a MTP battle belt for use with the Osprey Ian, they go for around £20 on ebay, I just had a quick look for you and they come in a few different sizes aswell. Could save you the hassle mate!

Cheers Ted. Cheeky, could you measure the width of the bit that the belt goes through, please? Maybe i can just slide my back protector through one.

 

You could buy my dodgy double battery one off me cheap. It works fine on full power, but the other modes don't work.

It's made for a 55mm belt to go through. How wide is your back protector? I'm at work today so will have to check later.
