The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7746 posts in this topic

With S95 gear, there is no such thing as 'New'. It's not used anymore. There is only Grade 1 or Grade 2. Grade 1 is stuff in perfect condition, Grade 2 is stuff with some wear and tear. More often than not, Grade 1 stuff from britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk arrives still in it's original packaging. The reason it's cheaper is that other army surplus stores would be buying from these guys.

 

There's literally crates of it piled up, fresh in their little bags in yeovilton stores, I expect it's the same at many establishments. If I needed/wanted a new issue of S95 DPM (which IS still used, it's just not the standard rig for anyone anymore) I could go and get it now.

Not quite (or at all) airsoft related, but oh well. Just bought myself a "new" car:

Highlander ATF Desert Alpha boots size 12- £25.49

5.11 'Tactical' socks, black, 9 inch x2- £17.12

 

I don't know how socks can be tactical, maybe they come with MOLLE and loop velcro for patches or something....

Looks brutal :)

 

These newer PDWs like the PDR and such are a bit small for me, but they look incredible compared to older designs

MK3 Capris are sexy cars though,and the since Mk3s are essentially upgrades over the MK2 which was pretty reliable you can expect a good condition Mk3 to be a solid runner. I'd do very dastardly things indeed to get my mitts on one,as did other people since it was the most stolen car of the 80s and 90s in Britain.

 

I'm with you dude, I thinks its beautiful.

 

 

Ohhhh man, that is gorgeous!

 

I'm loving it, it's taking some getting used to, as the only other car I've driven is an 05 Ford Mondeo :L.

 

It needs a few things doing, paintwork needs touching up at least, a full respray would be best, some of the rubber seals around the windows are original, so need replacing, driver's seat has a tear in it, so that needs fixing, the aerial doesn't go down, so that needs sorting, and I want to put an original cassette radio in it, as the current CD player doesn't suit it and is a cheap one. It also needs a new set of locks, as the boot and driver's door are on a different key to the ignition and passenger's door...

 

Other than that, it's all good. All rust etc. cut out and replaced with new metal, completely wax oiled/undersealed underneath by previous owner.

 

And the best bit: everyone seems to love it (apart from Lozart! :P).

Also got myself a 419 piece set of O-rings to fix up my M700's magazine- £8.87.

May also need a standard fill valve, so if anyone could link me to one that's decently priced I'd be grateful :)

A really nice pair of what a believe to be fake desert locusts. Although i am questioning weather they are fake as they have a 100% english manual and a subdued revision logo on the cloth, could be wrong though.

I suppose the indicator will be the location of the place you bought them from.

 

Wouldn't personally recommend anyone trust their eyes to knock-offs (or even potential knock-offs), but obviously that's not my decision to make for anyone else, just putting it out there for the lurkers.

Ebay, just needed a new set of goggles. I tested the lenses this morning and they seem to be fine against .2's-.3's so they should be safe to field.

Just because something comes from eBay doesn't make it instantly fake. A lot of legitimate retailers use eBay.

They have what appears to be serial numbers on the frame if that can prove legitimacy

Got given a freebie UBACS. Been told it's a flame retardant version issued to flight crew.

A little money holder key ring thingy for my TRMR primers. Bob on it is too. Kudos to Mack for that tip. 2x DYTAC M4 Hi Caps (Spit) purely because I sometimes find myself running out of ammo on my ERG particularly when defending a position and figured 1/2 hicap for backup would be nice. Right sided MOE Scout light mount for my SF replica for the Mall in August.

It is. Should say something along those lines on the label I think.

Dum ass here just realised that's what the FR on the label means!
