Looked at the VK one but this scored on a few pointers, it's a 30mm objective lens (VK is only 26mm), it has a chevron and range indicator type reticle as opposed to the dot and T style (personal preference more than practicality to be honest) and for the same price as the VK alone it comes with the mount included.

WAS universal holster - its great one holster with mechanical retention for most of my sidearms.

 

vertical foregrip

maple leaf AEG hop - 70deg

finally got the last piece for my G5, so after a bit of trial and error to get the Maple Leaf Omega nub to sit right (at which point i realised its not actually a flat nub. the bottom is actually slightly concave, so i might need a Namazu nub for a proper flat hop, but we'll see how this goes) and its all together.

 

Now i just need to chrono the gun to see how the longer wider Orga barrel and different hop setup will affect the FPS. i dont know the bore diameter of the stock barrel, but i know that i have definitely installed a wider bore (6.23mm), but it is longer, so should cancel out a little of the FPS drop. if the FPS is less than about 320 ill have a go at a high output nozzle to see if i can get it to around 340. and ill resort to an adjustable nozzle if all else fails.

a quick chrono test later, and some bad news:

 

Using the Orga barrel in place of the stock barrel has reduced my muzzle velocity by around 50FPS, from a fairly consistent 295FPS on 0.25s to around 245 on the same ammo.

 

So, to add to my list:

 

GHK G5 high power nozzle

 

Xcortech 3300 chronograph so i can test the results without having to drive 20 miles to me nearest chrono :P

 

now all i need is a place to shoot to see the groupings at 20m+ and im golden, its a shame that theres nowhere in my garden that isnt overlooked by at least one property and the longest range i have inside is about 10m at best :(

Kjw p229 with 3 mags and laser sight for a decent price. The px4 now has a new owner, one who will love it like it should be, and I have a new toy to (ab)use 😁

When you say Xcortech 3300 do you mean the x3300w chronograph/tracer scu system?

If thats what you have got just sneak outside in the middle of the night and user the tracer to check your groupings. All the neighbours will see is a bright green streak of bbs it will look like the worlds fastest fireflies.

the 3300 is damn expensive though, and ive never really been interested in tracer units. sure its handy to have a chrono attached to the gun, but i already have a supressor hiding the inner barrel extending past the outer barrel, so my barrel likely ends after the first sensor in the chrono if i were to fit a 3300 :(

A six pack of Double Eagle M56 shotgun shells @ £13.99

 

Testing my shells last night and found that out of my thirteen ASG shells only six are feeding properly. Always had good results with the Double Eagle shells in the past so I'm ditching the non working ASG shells and replacing with these - only reason I went for ASG in the first place was because they were around £5 cheaper.

I thought ASG shells were just rebranded DE shells? Or am I mistaken?

...should go nicely on my new E&L AKS-74N

Just have to decide which side mount to fit it to. I want an old skool looking one rather than anything new and tacticool stylee, but they seem to have gone out of fashion...

Double Eagle:

The ASG ones are darker in colour and also slightly thinner.

I wasnt upset that it had it, in fact i prefer it (if it were the right size :P)

 

What got me was that i thought the UBACS that i already had was army surplus, but i guess not.

The one you just bought might be older than the one you already have. The CS95 cut shirts had the elbow/forearm padding, they stopped putting it on the PCS cut though.

My ubacs shirt had shoulder padding too. Took it all out..

 

Also the large size I had didn't fit and the extra large is definately too big but I prefer too big than small.
