Just got an email today telling me that the SRC M16 I ordered is out of stock :(

I got a full refund and I'll be picking out something different this week.

Could be a blessing in disguise. Gen II SRC guns don't have a good rep. How much was it?

 

I just bought a pair of Lvl IV ballistic plates for £40.11 inc P&P from fleabay.

 

& that is it!

 

Edit: except this...

'Bout £150. I was after an M16 in what I call the Tier 2 price range (£100-£200) for a marine setup, but I'm possibly going to get an ACM shotgun so I can continue with the marine setup. The shotgun is styled after a Remington 870MCS shotgun and I believe that the USMC use 870s. Only problem is that the stock mags stick out of the bottom, however G&P make shorter mags for the shotguns that ACM cloned, so with a little expendature I'll get a true 870 :)

I think the US Marines now use the Benelli M4 Super 90, otherwise known by the US Military designation - M1014, which you'll probably know from some CoD game or BF3.

Problem is that the only M1014 shotgun under £200 is the Double Eagle shitface thing. I'd much rather buy something under £200 because it'd have to be painted, and I don't want to buy an expensive gun which would have to be ruined by a bright green finish.

Nick, we've had those for years now

The double eagle tri shots aren't bad, for the price they're well worth. Cheap usable weapons

I'm not much of a shotgun guy though. I'm also put off by the fact it's a pump shotty in airsoft, but a semi auto in real life. I'm all about authenticity as you know and shotguns just aren't real enough.

 

I imagine the airsoft one is made of some horrendous paper light plastic too.

What about this Tac?

Under £200 and it's a Benelli M4 Super 90.

 

Even I'm tempted at that price tbh... Even if it is plastic =[

 

It is out of stock though... Plus I've never even heard of CAW...

I had the double eagle M3 version of the tri-shot and it only worked on .12s, with virtually no accuracy. I'd much rather have the ACM M3 and use it in some sort of special forces/law enforcement setup, I'm not very interested in having a totally realistic setup gear wise.

edit: Ed, CAW make stupidly expensive clones of weapons, they have an ICS MGL clone for £300. Mosquito, better known as mosquito moulds, make tiny RIS mounted GLs (http://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/mosquito-molds-m203-mini-launcher). The shotgun you linked is just an expensive version of the double eagle weapon. The double eagle version has the exact same metal:plastic ratio and it's about £90 cheaper .

CAW are not a clone manufacturer. It stands for craft apple works (i think)

Their revolving launcher is not a clone of the ICS, it's much older- and looks nothing like the ICS

They focus more on niche items- launchers etc.

 

As far as i now, they dont make stuff anymore, atleast I havent seen anything new from them- atleast not the UK anyway.

Their shotgun ed linked to again is not the same as the double eagle one either.

I've thought about it, but the right parts aren't available yet, plus I'd rather drink bleach than touch a V2 gearbox again for a long while.

Remember this is someone who bought a whole new body for his .338 just to make it the right colour :lol:

Close yes but if he wants 100% accuracy then they wont cut it. There just aren't any 7.62 monolithic uppers available.

There's no 6x ACOG replica available yet either, which is ideally what I'd want on it.
