KSC/KWA vz61 Skorpion - GBB

Spare magazine for above gun

= £243~ from Airsoftzone with postage

 

Finally able to get one after a bit of time saving up for it - shot one before and it was a lot of fun. Going to use it as a sniper backup and as my main CQB weapon (slowly filtering out AEGs from my collection).

 

Also looks/sounds absolutely awesome and ties in well with my eastern bloc kit.

You'll need more than 1 spare mag for CQB main weapon use - the ROF is 'kin ridic, mate! I agonised over whether to go for it meself, as a self-birthday-pres, but in the end I decided that as proper cool as it would be to totally hose people with the merest trigger dab, practically it makes no sense. Good luck though!

 

For me:

 

3m of OD 20mm velcro for a fiver posted (fleabay) - for that price i thought i may as well get all 3m she had since it's not always available and i need a bunch of it to sort out the Russian 6B5 body armour carrier I just received, which is in very used condition (for which read 'fucked') - it's going to be a labour of love to restore it... hey ho, it was cheap @£39.22 posted :)

Yeah I realise that but £243 was enough to spend in one go this pay day haha. Plus the spare is a 40 round mag - most of my local CQB sites are semi auto only so full auto fun will be just for outdoors :D

 

Going to be investing in green gas though because there's no way it's not coming with me to every skirmish I go to haha

Let us know how you get on with that, please. Looks like good kit, but @ £80 + P&P i'm wondering if it is really worth it compared to Ohshibooms...

if you get it from JD and select free shipping it'll go to your local UPS collection point.

used it all day Saturday and I must say what I brilliant piece of kit. Extremely fast to arm and reload no messing with pins amd what not.

yeah really happy with it Ian. Highly recommend.

Turns out my SS Leto suit from Russia has been delivered by Parcel Farce to the wrong address. Signed for by someone called "S. Panther"... er... is my name not on the poxy label? Can you not fucking read the massive sign on the fence by the front of my house which explains that this is number 246, which includes Flats, not 244 which also has a flat and is covered by the same post code. But afaik there are no fucking Panthers next door either, so fuck knows where it is, V^^VGrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

 

Anyway, I just paid £20 for a DDR M56 cone head helmet - woohoo!

 

And i managed to track it down @no. 294 - i live @246 - good job Parcel Farce! OMGonads it's great!

 

And my Harpy boots arrived too woohoo! Double OMGonads they're so slim fit they're amazingly well shaped for my feet - if you have hobbit hoofs then probably best order the next size up and that probably goes for all Garsing boots.

 

Just bought:

For a bit of Russkie/Eastern Bloc novelty value, and since it was cheap, I just bought one of those slightly weird metal Jing Gong A47 RPK/SVD hybrids (personally, I think it looks quite a bit like a Romanian PSL, which would kind of make sense, since that is basically a sniper/DMR version of the RPK, so it is effectively a heavy-barreled AK variant with a Dragunov stock, although I'm not sure I've ever seen a PSL with a bipod on it).

 

Still not sure whether it is ugly or cool, or even if I actually like the way it looks, but whichever is true, it has the potential to be a bit of fun in woodland with a decent sight on it, since the barrel is long enough for well aimed accuracy, but it has a very high cyclic rate on full auto and it could potentially have a high capacity drum mag fitted to it. I think I'll just have to make sure it's cranking less than 350 fps, so there'll be no arguments about whether I can use it, since it could be thought of as a sniper, a DMR, a bog standard AEG, or a support weapon lol.

Can second that. Very easy to maintain as well as being very solid.

Is that the one that someone whose typing skillz could take a refresher was selling in the classifieds, or have you gone for a new 'un, mate?

 

I've been planning a tacticool RPK DMR for a while, but I had forgotten all about the PSL - that would make more sense for my proj really. Hmmmm... thinking cap, where art thou?

A helmet in kryptek, not sure if it's nomad or highlander but will probably be covering it anyway so not a big deal

Ever since i 1st saw Kryptek i knew i was going to have some at some point. It is just completely, totally tdb / sci-fi come to life, man - it's taken a while, but it's paid for... just waiting on post from Latvia :lol:

Yeah I kind of like it now, didn't hugely at first apart from mandrake but have recently taken a liking to it. I probably won't ever wear a full set as I pretty much decided to just mix camps from now on but will need to get some bdus in some of the patterns at some point soon.

Yeah, i can image that any of the patterns other than Typhon would look great on kecks with either of the ATACS pattern shirts. Even Multiwank kecks would probably look better than they usually don't under a Kryptek shirt. Holy splodges of colour, Batman! I've just realised how ACU (or whatever ppl are calling it these days) could actually look 1/2 decent - kecks under Kryptek Typhon shirt!

Actually no, I don't know, and yesterday i got banned from No Bullshit Airsoft for telling a cheeky bell end to fuck right off and die, so I can't actually go back to find out from the geezer i got the tip from - but you could. It's in a thread started by Martin Squirrel about eye/facepro with fans... geezer called Daniel Summitposh-Aruthers IIRC (that's a joke btw, it's just Dan double barrelled name). My guess would be AAA though...

From here: http://www.bbguns365.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59&products_id=512

 

Which means it is a two tone, but I have it on good authority from Sitting Duck on this forum that the blue is sprayed rather than moulded material, and under the blue it is a wood colour, so it's just a case of removing that and it'll be a RIF, although apparently it was a bit of an arse ache to remove the blue according to SD. It appears that site had three for sale yesterday at that price, and I bought one, so if you fancy one, then that presumably means they have two left, and that is definitely the cheapest place to get hold of one, they are around 150 quid everywhere else.

Had to go and buy a we m4/416 charging handle as the one that was provided with my gun had physically snapped, I blame either bad packaging or someone who didn't care about how the party received the gun

gave in & bought 2 x CM122 pistols on offer at Gunfire @ 40Euro or about £32 each

 

that a47 was blue and after sanding (fairy ain't shifting that amount of paint) it came out

with a sort of light faded or aged look - still plastic but smooth as a baby's ar$e

coat of varnish to finish and she will do me - still got a touch of blue on bottom of stock

(looks better/darker is wiped with damp cloth hence a coat of varnish will be sweet)

 

pic may appear bluey in places on some parts of stock but trust me it ain't like that at all - no sirs

(seriously was on an OCD mission to get every possible bit off - took hand guard off too & de-blued the holes etc..)

wasn't too bad really - heavy/medium/fine sandpaper & a bit of elbow grease

EP3's are not too bad, but tbh all multi-chamber stylee plugs suffer from 2 major drawbacks - 1) they are only as effective as their fit in your ear'ole allows, so do not be afraid to modify them to make sure that they do go right inside, so that those flanges make good contact with the walls of your ear canal forming completely enclosed chambers inside, and 2) the more effective they are, the less you will be able to understand speech, because they attenuate upper frequencies much more than lower, which is the area where the sounds which distinguish consonants fall, such as the difference between the plosives "P" and "B"...

 

If you are serious about ear protection, you need to have plugs tailor made for your ears. I use these. They are very comfortable and give around -30dB protection. However they are still useless against low bass and subsonics, so you should still do your best to avoid being in rooms with pyros...

These are made with Hocks Noise Brakers http://www.hocksproducts.com/hocks_noise_braker%C2%AE so they claim to reduce high SPL sounds while still allowing normal hearing of speech. We'll see. If that doesn't pan out I'll be looking at the Peltor electronic 6S ear defenders which I know work well having used some for shooting.

Received my tactical tailor operators cap a few weeks ago, this morning my softshell jacket arrived from aliexpress for £27. Actually I was surprised by quality.

Tactical Dalmatian as well haha

 

Just purchased a new pair of Czech Army jack boots to replace my old (read: finally disintegrated) ones. Size larger than I usually wear but at £15 I couldn't pass it up. Also got a new Czech ushanka to go with them for the back breaking price of 99p (gotta love eBay) with £2 postage.
