The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7841 posts in this topic

I assume the helmet strap (x nape?) is for you air frame? If so, please let us know how you get on with it- I've just got an AF and will probably look to replace the straps in the near future :)

Yeah I've not fitted it just yet since I'm waiting for a set of Crye side rails to come in but I've actually already fitted an Ops-Core X-Nape to the TMC 'frame, went on no worries. Had to use the original chinese screws and the specific nuts that Ops-Core supplied to get the best setup but that wasn't a problem. Only bought a new one because the one I picked up previously was for left-handed shooters ('Left Eye Dominant' version) which meant the buckle was on the right side and sat exactly at the point where your cheek should meet the stock, kind of annoying. Alright if you use the old 'tracer effect', purely instinctive shoot or already wear a mesh mask I'd imagine but I like to be able to get my face against the gun.

 

As for buying eagle stuff, if I had the money I would, but because they don't really *do* stuff for the civilian market it's almost all surplus SOCOM gear which carries a mega price premium just because someone may have been using it while they killed other people.

 

Also, how do you find the PTS PMag style mags for recoil shock guns? I'm tempted to panic buy a few but I'm not sure!

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend Eagle even if you did have the cash, their designs are from the tactical stone ages. Compared to Blue Force Gear for example, who make (in my book) basically the best and most cutting edge line of pouches out there, they really are way behind the times. They might bring out a new line at some point but they seem to be selling so much to the american military that they don't care about civilian sales, which isn't uncommon with gear/gun makers over there. I'll be sure to keep my eyes open for a single-mag only lidded pouch though, as you say they are pretty rare but I definitely get where you're coming from.

 

The EBBr PMAGs are built incredibly well, frankly OTT for an airsoft mag (which I'm a fan of personally). Nice capacity increase vs the TM 82 rounders and they're the same height as a RS mag which makes a nice change from all the stubby AEG mags out there. Fire-Support had a big stack of the things when I placed my order so you should be alright to leave it for a little bit.

just splurged a bit on one of these:

http://www.ebairsoft.com/full-auto-tracer-silencer-tb631-p-6773.html - I've already got a TM tracer unit for my MP7, but it not being QD and not looking 'right' finally got to me, I was going to buy a dummy silencer and try to mod the TM internals to fit, but I'll try this one first!

 

Also picked up an emerson MS2000 distress strobe dummy, hoping to use it as the basis for an 'innovative' (read batshit crazy, and probably doomed to failure) anti-fog solution for goggles/glasses.

Let me know how they work out when they show up and after a few games. I picked up some pouches from them a long, long time ago that weren't too great but I'm hoping they'll have upped their game around by now because some of the designs they sell are pretty interesting.

In short... dogsh*t. Of the three that I ordered, two are EXTREMELY tight fitting, to the point where inserting a standard TM recoil mag is difficult (the cutout at the back catches on the pouch 'rim'), the other is absolutely spot on but one out of three aint cutting it for QC as far as I'm concerned!

 

I'm hoping that with a bit of use they'll break in, if not I'll have to get the quick unpick out and re-do the stitching at the top to make the openings a smidge wider. Just a couple of mm is all it would take.
