Yay finally!

ok probably not that exciting to most of you but it's the Haft or Handle for my WW2 Entrenching tool. The entrenching tool and cover came with my webbing but was missing the handle. The left hand end takes a shovel/pickaxe or at the right hand end you can fix your bayonet to create a melee weapon, mine detecting poker or more likely to cook sausages over a fire.

 

Also just noticed an email regarding the small pack I ordered previously, they had found they didn't have any left and refunded my money so I have now ordered another from epic militaria.

310889760883_1.jpgMOTOROLA XTX446 (not a typo) - £12.50 posted ~ fleabay

The seller has a pile of these which have been going for less than £15 every few days for a couple of months. No battery: apparently they will take 3 x AA and Motorola 2 pin for audio accessories <- which is a pain in the arse, although I'm planning to go wireless for PTT so I would have had to buy a new one anyway. I'm tempted to to dismantle it and hardwire the PTT base unit to the handset with about 150mm of wire between them to cut down the spaghetti on my chest and, with the PTT transmit unit loose to attach to gun handguards, I should be tangle-free.

That M14 looks sweet, Sam. I just varnished the furniture of my CM.048 - used cheap varnish thinking it would look authentic Soviet. Turns out communist varnish may have been all the same, but apparently was pretty good in comparison to the choice capitalism gave me :lol: gonna have to get some acetone and steel wool and start again!

 

Anyhoo, recent purchases: 36 Thunder B shells for a blag price I feel would be dishonourable to reveal :lol: some DDPM nade pouches from our own dear Blacktor; a set of bright and set of subdued Soviet Motorised Rifle Troops insignia plus an orange Survival 1st Aid box.

 

My Afganka turned up too, woohoo!

Fitting the new 1, no. Shooting the shit out of the old 1... tempting but also no, because ricochets might damage other parts of my lappy and i'm suffering enough as it is :'(

Paid for a new delta ring (real steel style to replace CYMA -TM- one) so my MOE PTS Handguard will fit properly

This also means I will be selling my RIS and I have a potential buyer :)

 

Also, my MAG mags arrived today! Stated as OD colour, but actually close to Coyote Brown or Coyote Tan. Feed well, not too tight or wobbly either. Very pleased - I will be buying a box set of them.

Good man. Join the club :D

 

Make sure to get some Tanaka long mags for it, the standard KJW flush ones suck balls. I only use mine as a backup.

Are you going to NAE this year? If you are I'm thinking M700 sniper team :D

Am hoping to run an HPA/CO2 rig with it, but yes will go for the Tanaka long as 30 rounds is far better than 10! :D

I don't know when it is, but have never done the sniper role before so I'd poss not be a help, more of a hindrance lol :$ I had to use my PTS ERG today as a DMR as it is currently running hot and found that quite easy to adapt to, was glad of my trusty G18c though! :D

It's fun when you get 12 year old kids looking at you like you're some kind of god, because you have this massively obvious tan-painted beast of a scoped rifle in your hands.

The rest of the time you are taking potshots at enemies and you keep wishing that you bought a tightbore and a new hop rubber and nub before the skirmish :D

I can hardly believe I've just done this, but...

 

king-arms-enhanced-selector-lever-ka-sel King Arms Enhanced Selector Lever for AK - £31.54 delivered from HK :gulp:

But good old airsoft.tiger111hk.com came through for the internal plate, including a $0.13 discount which under the circumstances could not be sniffed at... so £2.90-odd delivered also from HK.

 

 

I feel slightly nauseous.
