Where are they ordering them from? And for how much (any extra costs)?

I not sure where from frank did not say, he did say he expected the hop to be around the £15 mark to be honest cost isn't that much of a major issue as I am going to restore the gun :)

Do you know if it's from the UK, or abroad? And if abroad, if it's straight from manufacturer?

Maybe from echigoya- I think they have close ties with TM.

Their International site doesn't list parts,but I'm sure their physical stores have them in. I think TM still produce the FAMAS and it's parts in very limited quantities,since they seem cheap.

From what I understand, they can get any part there just may be a wait for TM to make them if not in stock

Do you know if they can get whole guns from any manufacturer?

There are companies which buy from manufacturers then sell them wholesale to retailers.

 

Examples,RSOV Is the wholesaler for AGM,JG and some other ACM companies,but also a retailer.

Jag Precision and Spartan Imports are wholesalers for a wider variety of companies.

 

I forgot the names of the Japanese companies which sell wholesale for Marui,but you get the idea.

Echigoya is one of them I'm pretty sure.

I'll send FireSupport an email, see if they can get hold of a G&P M14 for a reasonable price for me.

That's a good idea, they were pretty cheap too, didn't have the colour I wanted though, would have ordered one then if they did.

Just come back from another visit to Riflecraft but this time I bought a Vortex Strikefire sight. Awesome RS sight with a screw on x2 magnifier for £127. Lifetime warranty as well :)

Also got to handle RS Glock 36 and Taurus .357 revolver. Was quite surprised by the polymer on the Glock which felt more plasticky than an airsoft pistol!

That's impressive, Lantac are asking £175 for the exact same optic.

Really good to see the Vortex stuff becoming more commonly available here, they make an excellent option for airsoft use. A lot of airsoft brands have been getting away with charging similar prices for much lower quality for too long now.

Exactly my thoughts. You need to pop up there and have a look around the shop CK. Going up there again next week if the 5.11 order is in and taking my Hi Capa to get Cerakoted. Had a play with a JP .22 centre fire semi auto rifle and a RS Glock 36 and Taurus .357 Python. Top guys!

I'd like some cerakote done on bits of my LM4 so I'd imagine I'll go down at some point. Just unsure about the whole process; time taken, cost, exact condition the parts need to be in prior to work etc. Their new website is good but there's not a massive amount of actually relevant info.

I have a price list if you would like a copy? You can send the parts stripped or they can strip for you (for a charge) and assemble. Time at the moment is a couple of weeks.

They showed us a lovely .338 Lapua rifle that had just been cerakoted. That was awesome!

Maybe a silly question, but what's cerakote?

It's a type of rifle paint, but much more hard wearing than say just spray painting etc.
I think it's more popular over in the US but there are a couple of places in the UK now offering it.

Just got myself a replica AN/PRC-152 so that I finally have a shell to hold my ugly old Talkabout T5820. Didn't think having that little thing was very good for mil-sim...

Surprisingly well built and accurate apart from a little rattle which the super glue should be able to fix no problem!

 

No pics though yet, sorry!
