Umarex Beta Spetsnaz AK47 - £109.99

330fps downgrade - £39.99

From actionhobbies.

 

Budget rifle as my G36 is being fixed but I used to have one and really enjoyed using it - very sturdy rifle for the price even if it's cheap pot metal. Got them to downgrade the fps to 330 for me as well since 370 is a bit too hot for most sites :)

Forty quid is a bit fierce for a spring downgrade... I take it you didn't fancy doing it yourself?

 

Version 3 gearboxes are pretty easy to dis/re-mantle. The Umarex Beta Spets is made by JG iirc, so the only issue to swapping springs is getting the trigger back in when you close the gb shell. The easiest way to do it is close the gb without the trigger and put the top strap on; place the trigger lefthand side down with the trigger spring fitting into the retaining hole in the left gb shell half, then crack the gb open just enough to rock the right side of the trigger in. The bushings for the spur and bevel gears will be slightly out of alignment, but keeping a grip on the gb to stop them moving further and you can poke them into place with a cocktail stick.

Pretty much, I'd rather have a gun I know works than take the risk of using my g36 which isn't working at the moment in case it's more broken than I think it is. So I thought I'd let an actual tech sort the beta out for me whilst I wrestle with the g36.

 

Cheers for the advice though.

Look for a begardi replica, or warlord tactical were supposed to be making them, along with a load of other l119a1 parts they already make ;)

 

RE warlord tactical, how does one go about making a purchase from them? I can't find a website, just a facebook page :unsure:

Snugpak Jungle bag - brand new in stuff sack with tags £35

MTP Bush hat - £5

Cylume - £0 thrown in for free, the bloke on the stall told me to take the lot of them but I only took one. Felt bad as he'd already given me £3 off the hat without me asking.

As royal mail hate people who are at work or at school by 10, I missed my new chest rig delivery by about 5 mins as I didn't finish for break until late. I'll probably cycle up to their distribution office tomorrow and give them a letter bomb (PS: GCHQ, I do not plan to blow up the royal mail distribution office)

Well, I suppose I could always start a new life in Syria.

Where'd you get your hands on a LAW mate? I can't find real ones any cheaper than £250, wouldn't mind a replica!

Friend of a friend of a friend who's selling up. Quite fancy it myself, but know somebody that wants it more. May even make a profit on the deal!

Couple of very nice shinies from Dave's Custom Airsoft.

  • Tactical Link EBAL (Enhanced battery assist lever) - It's just a BAD made out of thicker metal, but I like the angular look
  • Fortis Mfg rail mounted, rotation limited QD sling swivel
  • Naroh Arms KeyMod mounted, rotation limited QD sling swivel
I never bought in to QDs on slings before, stuck with simple hooks and clips to work with the good old ASAP plates. But now a few of the bigger RS sling makers have gotten in to them (mostly with the MS4 and MS1) and there's more QD sling points for M4 lowers, they're making more sense for me personally.
