Yeah, that's what i thought, remus. I dunno if customs would go any more nuts over this stuff than other RIF's. I spose that $59.95 + $30 shipping isn't actually that bad for -

Oooooh, u can totally c where smugglers get off, can't u?

 

I just got an original KGB shield badge for £8.50 delivered - to go with my KGB Academy Graduate diamond badge & a pair of the right shade of blue shoulder boards for £11.50 delivered - in case the coat i bought has airforce blue ones, or for further loadouts to come :)

 

Plus, a bit over the odds due to a lapse in eBay ninja skills, a wanka... er, no actually that's generic. Specifically I got a Syriyka hat with face mask for about £17 delivered, it's just that I thought it might tickle somebody to know that shapka, Russian for 'hat' is spelled wanka in cyrrillic .D

Dammit Ian,your KGB loadout(and money) make me jealous that I can't afford 200€ for SMERSH Webbing to complete my loadout.

Still,Nice to see somebody do something a little different. I get a hard on for Russian loadouts.

 

I know I can just buy a cheap Assault/Lifchik vest with AK pouches and still be 'authentic' but I hate assault vests.

 

Anyhoo, I bought a new KJW M9 'reinforced' blue nozzle to replace my old one and in my quest for good trigger response for my AK build,deans connectors and low resistance wiring.. Also a got can of Abbey Brut gas and dropped by Lidl to buy some nice fingerless gloves for 3.99 :P

Yeah UTJ, I've had a splurge, but that's it for a while again cos i just had to blow a load on spending time with my g/f. I'm going with a lifchik A-Belt, a DDR gas mask pouch in Strichtarn as a dump pouch & still to get a 3 or 4 AK mag pouch depending on what comes up when i have more to spend. Also still to get: double grenade pouch, canteen & pouch, veshmeshok, and if possible an original summer mabuta in khaki, but my size 54-5 seems to be rare so i might have to go repro. At the mo i'll be wearing Strichtarn kecks under Birch 'digital bunnies' camo kecks and black striped telnyashka under the camo top.

Really, the only thing that will look impressive, I think, is that my lifchik is in birch camo too. Still, i foresee an SSh68 with net & cowl on the horizon soonish... and who knows, i might get sick of waiting and get a summer 1st generation Afghanka to wear under my camo. If it wasn't for the AKS74U tho, right now it would look pretty pants.

The parade uniform stuff is for the lols really. I just think it might be cool to arrive on site impeccably turned out as the west's formerr worst enemies lol! But again, i'm a long way off having that complete too. TBH, if i did have a lot of money to throw at Russian gear I'd put an OMON loadout together with a 6B6 full of titanium and a sphere helmet...

I need to start doing the lottery more lol!

 

EDIT TO ADD: Remember that torch i ordered? 1600 lumens? It was on my mat when i got home tonight. Well TBH I was sceptical, but I've seen T6's advertised as 1000 lumens output before, so I thought 1600 was probably just an exaggeration. The fcuking thing isn't even as bright as my C8 running at 3.7V - it's rated at 350 lumens from 4.2V. Yup, that's a fleabay case opened all right, the wankers!

Right now,I'm going for a Cechen War Era Scout loadout,I might break down and get a Lifchik and just wear it low.

 

This one looks nice:

I'm wearing the old M21 'les' BDU,which came about in the 1990s made by Rosich or something. It's very cheap and well made. It's a summer BDU and is very light. I'm going to stone wash mine for a more authentic look,though it is quite worn from natural usage.

Anyway,the VSR 10 piston Orings arrived this morning,AirsoftEire got them in just in time. A friend told me they were clearing out 90 round speedloaders for 1€ each,so I got a few with the change I had.

VSR 10 is now back in action!

should probably start a seperate topic on the goblin now but anyway, took it out today, and whilst fun, only fired it 3 times, and 2 of those times the pellets fell well short/went wide. though i am using green gass which is supposedly the weakest it can take so i have a few options. use fewer bbs, going to try 8 instead of 12, should increase performance a fair bit. and also going to try lighter bbs. failing that c02...

oh and the one time it did work not only was it a double kill, but scared the crap outta them, never expected that... lol.

A WE Glock 17 Tactical. I think it's a Gen3. I actually asked them to get me a Gen4... But I guess I can live with it considering I got it for £85.

 

As well as that though, I just ordered a Level 2 CQC Serpa Blackhawk drop leg holster for it, in coyote tan; by Tariq's excellent shout out. As well as 3 spare mags from ProAirsoftSupplies. Who will no doubt email me in the morning to say they're out of stock, as that's what tends to happen with most things I buy these days.

 

I'm astounded at how good this Glock is though, I'm officially over my grudge against WE, this thing is phenomenal. 70 shots on one gas fill, 4 lots of 17 and then some, it even locked back on the last shot every time and everything. Seventy. Freakin'. Shots! TM can bugger right off.

SPEZIAL_FORCES_LES.jpg

Yeah, it's a great looking BDU. It's weird because the green in the camo looks much more man made than natural to me, especially when new, but I think it looks cool anyway! Stone washing has got to make it even better. I wouldn't know how to go about it myself, other than maybe putting medium road stone in a washing machine with the clothes, but I can't imagine that doing the washer any good...

 

@remus: what I want to know is this: why is it, in life generally as well as airsoft, when you find something really cool, like the Goblin Solo for eg, it rarely is as cool as we expect it will be...? They do make a big thing of it being good for CO2 though, so I'm guessing that's the way forward. When my UKARA# is reinstated and I can get one, I'm going to also get one of those 12g CO2 Adaptors and yeah, 0.12g BB's can't hurt. In a short range blast, who cares how accurate each BB is?

 

I'm not surprised it sh!t people up! It's pretty scary getting shot anywhere near your face with a semi-auto gas pistol, a whole blast of BB's must be worse. That's one of the reasons I want one lol!

just so ya know it comes with a c02 gas adaptor, not sure if its the same one you just said but there is one anyway... and yea accuracy and barrel blocking really shouldnt matter with them. pluss i already have a bottle i was going to throw away...
