The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7629 posts in this topic

Just bought a Lonex m4 and we glock 17 with 3 mags...having sold my tm g18c, I wanted a cheaper glock I could throw about and not worry bout all the time. Paid 200 quid for both of the above (including postage, a few m4 mags and a lipo)

+1 for the g17, my favorite pistol right now. Remember, it won't fit most holsters. I guess when I sell the Safariland holster with the specially made pod for WE G17s, you could try to take it off me :)

Do you keep anything for more than six weeks? :D

 

Interested in your opinion on the Lonex M4 though. Quite tempted myself....

Haha tbh loz, I was scared about dropping the g18c to the point it stayed in the safe zone most of the day! And spaz, I didn't realise it wouldn't fit most holsters, whys that?

 

Re the lonex, I cant wait till I get to try it, it looks n sounds amazing!

A lot of WE guns seem to be a touch bigger that heir real steel counterparts. Now, fabric or soft holsters will be fine, but hard cases may not fit.

The WE is a copy of the TM and the TM is a bit larger than the RS G17. With hard/moulded holsters you need something designed for the Glock 20/21 (which are the standard full-size Glocks in 10mm and .45 respectively) to fit certain airsoft G17s.

I got a FOBUS GL-3 G20/G21 holster but the Glock 17 still won't without modification.

I've seen on a few sites it will fit TM and KWA though.

IIRC a SERPA defo will work.

Ok... well in your one case clearly the Fobus was on the small end of the tolerance bracket and your Glock (which I'm assuming was WE?), must've been at the large end of the tolerance bracket. When you take two items from companies that produce things in vast quantities at comparatively low prices, these things will happen. The fact remains that what I said is true, if you don't buy the holster for the larger sized RS Glock your TM/WE/other off-size airsoft RIF will have almost zero chance of fitting, whereas with the larger holster there's a good chance. It's always a weigh-up of probabilities in airsoft because this stuff isn't life-saving critical and the manufacturers build it as such. There's never any 100% guarantee of anything actually being compatible with anything else that it should be compatible with.

Just bought a PKA red dot for AK's from ebairsoft - $78.00 posted. I'll put it on my PP-19 Bizon 2. T'other day I bought a 2nd Prometheus purple (soft) hop rubber because even though it's new and unopened it was going in an auction from a non-airsoft seller on ebay - got it for $14.50 posted.

Condor shotgun scabbard (olive)

12 round molle shotgun bandolier (olive)

£47.99 from military1st

 

Just an impulse buy so I can run my shotgun all the time now rather than as a dedicated primary. Gonna try it out on the 29th at The Gaol. Till then I have the fun of breaking the scabbard in when it arrives.

G&G GC16 MOD0 30th Edition - that's it for my G&G collection

 

Deffo the better 30th edition model - sturdy front handguard/battery compartment with rail on top

Even the front sight is easily removed which I didn't notice before ordering

Very happy as got a little bonus from work to buy this with - no not a banker but just over a weeks extra profit share

 

Yup she is a nice looking gun indeed - not even fired her yet but happy to add her to my G&G family

If you can still afford to shop there, then you havent spent enough money in airsoft gear... Remember, you always need another pistol
