The 'What have you just bought' Thread

It's spelled "bergen", Richie, like the Norwegian city. Not a big deal but if you start talking to people on certain fb pages and make mistakes like that you'll find yourself on the receiving end of a lot of 'I'm so much more ally than you' bullshit.

 

I've just bought some rechargeable AA's and some 6.5cm solder tabs for batteries because my new XTX446 radio finally arrived and, while the info I had received that they would take 3 AA's is substantially correct, the configuration is a bit funky... still, a bit of soldering is well worth it to get a boss radio brand new for £12.50, even though I have had to wait for yonks to actually receive it!

Some Czech/Soviet surplus AK magazine pouches off eBay. The only style of pouch I've found that fits my AUGs magazines snugly but not too tight.

 

£10 a pop so I've naturally brought more than I need.

Got an interesting item off fleabay earlier:

221411806664_1.jpg £4.99 posted / can't go wrong! Not sure I actually want a Docter sight on any of my AK's, but soonish I'll have one that is surplus to requirements, so maybe i'll stick it on there to sell.

 

Just started the ball rolling on buying a PDI 6.01x595mm barrel from x-fire.org but they can't just sell you stuff like any normal webby; oh no, they're not content with the tortured Japanglish on their order page, they have to drag it all out by making you wait for a 2nd email with the shipping cost and their PayPal deets :mongface:

 

I'm so tempted to buy a Tokarev too but I'll only regret it in 2 weeks when i have to choose between smoking and eating...

Get the Tokarev Ian... You know you want to...

 

I have convinced myself to get one since you rarely see them at £80.

 

Update:

I actually have just purchased one through redwolf plus an actual Tokarev surplus leather holster from eBay. My new toy should be here by Friday haha

Got a few patches on the way.

 

Picked up some Sheriff patches. One is black on OD and the other is yellow on black.

 

Also got a "the sheriff" name tape and a custom ironsight airsoft patch.

 

Can you guess what nickname I have been given at work.

I do want to. I just rang them up for a beat around the haggle bush. It's the mags. £30. Thirty fucking quid. For 11 rounds. They're not having it though, so no. How much did you pay for your holster?

 

Just coughed up £88-odd for my PDI barrel. Heads up people: x-fire.org are having an easter free shipping sale woohoo!

£19 with shipping from Poland. Apparently it's unused but considering most go for around the £30 mark I was quite happy to risk it. If I find it I'll pm you the link.

 

I also was a bit miffed about the cost of mags, but it's not often I have to resort to my secondary so not a major issue for me. Looking online most reviews say the mag holds enough gas for 30ish rounds so it's nothing too drastic to carry a speed loader on my lifchik somewhere.

Easter free shipping on Xfire? Nice nice nice. Cheers for the heads up. Defiantly going to stock up some W holds and other VSR parts, I might actually have some money left over from a gun job and the remains of the hicapa fund to pay the stuff. Free shipping is always nice.

 

I like Xfire's ordering system,makes sure everything is double double checked so you can get it. Their customer service is pretty good too. They just need to hire a proper English speaker though,however the Nipponish is readable enough albeit hilarious.

How is it for build quality and performance? One of my mates is interested in getting one for his '50s soviet loadout

From what I've read on the interwebs and Red Alliance-Looks and feels nice,performance is not bad,accuracy is skirmishable however gas efficiency is very bad,more a show piece or plinker according to some people

 

However I guess it's better to have firsthand info instead of regurgitating it from other sources

 

I would not have high hopes for good gas efficiency.Heavy zamak slide+ tiny mag reservoir does not an efficient gun make. You can always hope it can make up for it purely by presence and good accuracy.

Haven't shot it yet since the neighbours are out in the garden next door - walking out with a pistol in hand may give the wrong impression lol.

 

Build wise it's very light but seems solid enough - all metal apart from the grips on the side. Going to a skirmish at the embassy on the 26th so this is coming too so I will review it after a days skirmishing.

 

Only issue I can see is the wobbly trigger (not sure if this is intentional) and that it doesn't have a safety (like the real gun). Like I said, I'll write a mini review later on after I've skirmished it but out of the box it looks promising.
