Yeah, I'll only make it up there if I can find a lift and get my gun back up and running in time. Which I reckon is doable. Just have to wait and see how it turns out.

Fire Support rang me to say that they were out of stock of the high torque gears I ordered =[

 

Which kinda sucks 'cos if I use the new pinion gear with my current gears I'm just going to end up sanding it into dust again, which I'd obviously rather avoid.

 

Still, at least it's saved me about £65 for the time being.

 

Edit:

 

Decided to get this set from Landwarrior instead:

If I run into any compatibility issues I'm going to be so annoyed...

Yeah that is a ball ache, Ed. That pic on LW doesn't look like helical gears I've seen. I spose it must just be a stock 'gear pic'. Not to crow over your misfortune, but I'm pleased you've gone for helical gears. I've read conflicting reports about them being noisier or quieter than ordinary gears, so I'll get the story from someone I know isn't a dick.

 

I tried to get the G&P 551 w/ EOLAD Laser from Redwolf UK but they're out of stock. They're getting a couple in week on Monday...

Noise isn't really a major issue for me, I'd just rather opt for range and accuracy over rate of fire any day and these gears ought to give me a faster pull on heavier springs, and hopefully meet with the pinion gear better this time around. I just hope they fit...

 

I figure that on a lower power spring than they're intended to be used with, they ought to give me a better trigger response, so when I'm running them in my L85 I can run it as close to 368fps (on a .20, naturally) as possible with either .25s or .30s. Then once I've got the L86 I can just stick the same gearbox in that, stick a heavier spring in it and find a way to lock it to semi only for a DMR set up.

 

Thing is, plans of mine rarely survive their full term... We'll have to wait and see how it turns out. A small part of me is slightly worried that I'm just going to end up utterly borking my L85 with a never ending ton of parts which won't fit into it. But I guess is the worst comes to the worst, I'll just have to order a whole new gearbox and start again, that's the beauty of the ICS L85, everything gets sold as a drop in replacement.

L86 DMR? That's a bit strange...

 

U know ARRSE? Yday there was a rumour that the L1A1 might get another outing with the SAS - apparently they've ordered a load of 7.62 ammo... looking good for my black loadout if so (assuming I can get my poxy thing working again).

The real thing was used as a marksman rifle when it was actually used. It didn't work as a squad automatic support rifle because the 30 round mags were too limiting for putting suppressive fire down, and since it was accurate out to 800m, which was further than the L85, it made sense to use it until a suitable replacement was found.

 

I don't think they're used in Afghanistan anymore, but they're cool as shit and I know the internals like the back of my hand, so it seems a good base gun for a DMR. I'm literally just going to put a SUSAT on it and beef up the internals.

Yeah, that reminds me of a clip of footage from a helmet cam from Afghanistan.

 

The brits were taking fire from about 300m away and this squaddie lay down to set up an L86 on bipod to return fire...

 

I thought then, "Where's the 'kin box mag?"

 

The last SUIT sight I saw on fleabay went for something like £700 - it was so expensive that I've blotted the exact figure out of my mind lol! But I've found somewhere that may be able to supply one for less than £200 though. Still, I'm seriously looking into NV gear @mo so there's no SUIT me sir on the horizon for a good long while probably.

 

Oh, and I couldn't resist this for £7.98 delivered:

I have a mate at Uni that recently picked up a real SUSAT for 308 squids... Might have to kill him for it...

It's a nice find, but I was looking at getting one of the replicas with the illuminator in it, or just looking for a real one.

 

Also, in those photos of it someone put it on an M4... Which ought to be impossible. And they put it on backwards! Derp!

hi junior what sort of paints are they if you dont mind me asking ? as I have a tool box full of humbrol and valjao paints I could put to good use with my airbrush and brand spanking new aircompressor.i will give the multicam ago on and old gun colours may not be spot on but once I've tried I can only progress from there

Just ordered what looks to be a copy of a Save Phace mask from Tiger111hk. The photos clearly show space in the foam padding for the arms of glasses so I am hoping mine will fit.

 

Hopefully just the job to complete a zombie apocalypse, p229, Mac 10, lightweight loadout.
