TM M870... not sure why I want one, but I do. So I bought one.

 

Hopefully all the stuff I just put up for sale goes quick or I'm gonna be in the doghouse with the Mrs!

I would be wary about it,there was a recall in Japan for one issue related to the 6 shot mode jamming the cocking mech on some models.

yeah I saw that, if all else fails it comes with a warranty from the retailer.

Who are you getting your lenses from, Suz?

I'm getting them from www.ciliaryblue.com

 

It's costing me £50. The lenses would normally be £40 but my eyes are pretty bad and need strong lenses. I got a pair of Viper tactical glasses and i'm going to see how it goes but I think in the long run i'll get the Revision Sawfly and get prescription lenses for those as they fog less. Ciliary Blue can also add anti fog coating to the lenses they make for you!

 

EDIT: Those are thin lenses too! :)

Thanks mate. Unfortunately they only do varifocals, which i need, if you've had them before and can send your old pair. I need varifocals but i haven't bothered to get any yet!

I bought this, inert schermuly flare tube (I have a strange thing for flares & Illumination gear). Quite useful as I can put things in there too, BB storage and the like. :D

£5 for a second-hand (but near mint condition) PEQ-styled battery box. Looks awesome on the L85.

£5 for NIB goggles. They fit right over my glasses, and work better than my shooting glasses.

 

Bit peeved I couldn't shift my G36 at Halo Mill's bring and buy though...

Just acquired an S-10 Respirator (needs the lenses converting to airsoft friendly lenses), but my SAS-style loadout is coming along now! ^_^

you'll want to put some venting in it, S10s are horrid sweaty things even stationary, let alone running about! :D

Indeed, rip the insides out of the canister and take out the non return valve from the other side too, they're horrid bits of kit and I'm glad they're being replaced (even if I did have to shave off my beard to get fitted for the GSR).

Weeeeeellllllllll... S10's are sweaty bastards certainly, but let's have it right, the way that the air circulates inside them with each breath, as it is designed to, stops the lenses from fogging much / at all. Who knows if that will still work properly if you mess with it?

 

I haven't got around to it yet, but I definitely intend to take the innards out of a filter for mine sometime. Breathing through a proper filter takes some practice when you're running about - deep and steady gets you more oxygen than trying to gasp.

 

I had a look for my receipt for ballistic replacement lenses, so i could pass on the seller to you, but unfortunately it's another victim of early onset dementia, otherwise known as i couldn't fcuking remember where i've left my arse if i didn't have to wipe it periodically...

what is wrong with the std lenses on the S10? We wear them firing real guns so surely they are decent protection still?

I'm sure nobody ever told u that the S10 would protect u from bullets tho, right?

 

The lenses aren't rated for ballistic protection. Once you get them out of the rubber you can feel it - a good thwack would crack/shatter 'em.

Thats for all the advice guys! Did not think about the potential sweatiness inside them - never crossed my mind.
