or even courts martial!

Just to be annoying, Courts Marshal is simply the plural. Both Court Marshal or Courts Marshal would be correct as one would refer to a single trial and the other would represent the whole military judicial system. B)

Now we just need a drumhead and volunteers for the firing squad. :)

2 different words, Court Martial is correct, Court Marshal is not.

Let me know how installation goes (maybe a linky if it goes good) as I'm interested however a little cash strapped at the moment :)

Will do dude, will probs start a thread on it when the bits arrive as gonna HPA my G5 as well once the M700 is done and make a hi-cap gas mag to make my loadout lighter so will be showing how I get on with that too :-)

Errr. changed my mind about painting,loving the worn look too much :lol: Besides,I always have foliaged taped on all over the bugger in game so painting won't help much.

 

Returned the paint and got an SHS piston sear and a bottle of Blaster .30s instead. Performance > looks strikes again.

Update on the Prommy hop nub I recently purchased. It is a fantastic nub but it was making my RM4 CQB over hop so I have had to revert to the original nub. I currently don't have a gun I can use them in but will keep hold incase I'll be able to use one of them in my M700 at a later date if I am able to replace the standard hop unit on it.

If it's making it over hop use that as an excuse for heavier ammo man! You may notice a big difference in accuracy and effective range going from .25s to .30s for example.

 

Why limit the performance of a gun? Squeeze out as much as you can from the wee git.

I've tried MadBull Shark nubs, which are similar to H nubs, just more curved, and they caused massive overhop with everything, in every gun I tried. My L96 was throwing .4s behind me nearly.

Ahhhh... yes, now I get it. Pain in the arse waiting to happen...

 

What you need is one of those hop rubbers with no bump.

If I can remove this bit I may be able to use it in the std hop of the M700

Mate, if i was getting off me 'ead I wouldn't mind. At least i'd have something to show for it, as it were... all i'm getting is very poor analgesia and a whole raft of bloody annoying side effects, the least of which is a memory like a dope fiend.

Or you could turn your current one inside out, by putting it on backwards on the wrong end of the barrel, and then use sandpaper to remove the bump from it, or to reduce the size of the bump. It's quite fiddly, easy to make a mistake and tear the rubber, and much, much easier to do with a soft rubber, especially the turning inside out bit.

Have you actually done that, Liam? If so, with what rubber and sandpaper?

I've done it with a stock G&P rubber, MadBull blue, MadBull red and I tried it with a Prometheus red (I think). No idea on the sandpaper, was some stuff I found in the shed, was the finest stuff I could find though. I did it when I was experimenting with r-hops, used the same sandpaper on the r-hop patches and on the nub I made out of a small slice of a thick rubber band and a small patch of milk bottle plastic to keep it rigid.

 

Was easiest to do on the G&P one, the two MadBulls I had a bit of trouble turning inside out, had to cover them in grease and then use a small pair of pliers to actually get grip on them. The Prometheus wouldn't even turn inside out, was a harder rubber, but whatever I tried, it wouldn't go, didn't want to pull too hard as it'd rip.

 

When I tried that rubber in my L96, the end bit actually stopped BBs from being able to enter the barrel, was an awful rubber, wouldn't buy another hard rubber at all from that experience. Only bought it because someone recommended it to lift heavy BBs, but a larger/different shape nub allows soft rubbers to lift heavy ammo, and soft rubbers are easier to work with and give a better air seal anyway.
