How much did the Olight cost, rexfan?

 

 

Couple of dog tag silencers & some OD sniper tape from Contact Left - £9.48 posted.

 

and a few bits for me dremmelesque

 

Unfortunately it's going to be a lean month airsoft-wise - i just had to buy a new whistle to wear to a wedding cos i'm too fat to fit comfortably into me old one. It's getting a bit beyond what dry cleaning and an iron can do for it anyway - maybe i'll wear it to a CQB with shoulder holsters & dual wield USP's some time (I have 2 of those cheap fuckers now).

Hi Ian :D

 

There was a bunch of new Olight flashlights auctioned off on ebay a few nights ago at stupid o'clock so they were going cheap. For All i know it might even be a clone but I'll see when it arrives. It was £20 rather than the £69 rrp so I just went for it :P That and the fact that i was outbid on many better flashlights last minute and that this was the last one up for grabs.

 

Ive already got enough flashlights that can do the same job but given the low prices it was more of a "spur of the moment buy" :P

And some silicon oil ready to strip it down and remove all the harmful grease they use when making these. Lube may also be handy when the customs charges are applied :D

They offer a two tone service for RIFs coming into the UK. I gather it's much like shipping from Poland/Hong Kong/etc. that you need to get the retailer to clearly write both your UKARA number and a contact phone number on the packaging to stop customs instantly destroying it if you want a black RIF.

^^The main difference being that, as Russ rightly alludes to, with it coming from the USA Customs are going to bend him over and give it to him sideways without lube...

2 x ARS Split barrel bases for Marui EBB ARs

 

Soon as you take off the darn silly stock TM barrel nut of your SOCOM/SOPMOD the outer barrels ends up way on the piss when you rebuilt the front end, much worse/more noticeable with a freefloat handguard. Expensive for something so small but worth it to make your gun shoot straight, a couple of my SOCOMs have been winging shots off to the right for literally years and obviously I'd assumed it was the hop-up work I'd done.. turned out to be the externals causing the issue of all things.

Yes, there is only 1 reason why I would buy a gun from America. I cannot get it anywhere else.

A Gun shaped object being sent from a country known for the easy availability of guns guarantees customs will be interested in it. Once they realise they can't keep it, they will apply as much tax and duty as they can. Sometimes you can get lucky ordering stuff from the US but a gun has virtually no chance.

Seems this gun just doesn't want to get fixed. Can't get the bearing off the shaft of one of the old gears!

End of the day, VAT is VAT, 20% is a fixed value, customs can't change that.

 

There is some lee-way in the Import Charge code they use but not very much, few quid either way. If anything they're more likely to be looking for 'guns' inside packages from HK because that's where the vast majority of RIFs will be coming in from, there's not going to be much difference. I've had RIFs from HK stopped and had maximum charges whacked on, same as I'm getting with a RIF from the states right now. Personally I'd say the main reason not to buy airsoft from the US is the general xenophobic attitude to sales that so many stores over there exhibit and the fact the prices are quite often worse.

Laylax M110 Spring, 13 euro,literally just arrived at the local shop. Hopefully bring the gun up right to the legal limit at 328/330. Most sites allow a tolerance and the madbull chronos most palces use always read too low from what I've seen.. I also don't exactly like the quality of the Chinese spring I currently have in mine,whatever finish is on it is very poor,comes off easily and It's covering the internals in whatever powdery shit it's covered in. I do not have faith in it's longetivity either.
