They had 8 or 9 for sale some newer some older.Those that were in better cosmetic condition went for more. As I was tearing them down and scrapping the stocks etc I went for the fixed stock older examples :)

I have moved the torch to the right as i cant turn it on if it is mounted on the left. This way my thumb can turn it on and off very easily.

 

The PEQ has a laser and a torch but the torch is not very bright.

 

The 203 has had more rubbing down and looks a bit better.

 

R.e. the AR (which is looking good, nice paint work as per usual. Good, practical camo) it does have a lot of cool guy stuff sure, but it's not unrealistic. I wouldn't run a gun that heavy on account of my little match-stick arms but before the days of Daniel Defense rails it was pretty common to see all sorts of guys with 40mm'd up M4A1s/Mk18s as well as a lot of other gear on the forend. There's a lot of potential reasons for a PEQ plus a light, without even going in to the whole quagmire of IR stuffz it could be as simple as not having access to a ton of spare batteries in the field (or highly autonomous ops). So the light can be used for things that requires the use of a flashlight, then save the PEQ battery for making nice little sparkles on bad guys that are shortly getting a new sky light put in.

 

Having tried EoTechs and Aimpoints with magnifiers I ended up moving back to either just a 4x optic or a 4x with docter/backup irons for the larger sites. Obviously it's subjective to gameplay and eyesight (mine is just bad enough to be a hindrance in airsoft) but I never found myself desperately needing a fully fledged red dot and the magnification, the compromise on the docter style seemed better given the weight saved. Each to their own of course.

A pair of Classic Army M15A4s.

 

One for me and one for my son.

 

Ex Rental Guns from Gun Ho.

 

Got the pair for £25 after the last SKirmish yesterday.

 

Both in reasonable condition and reliable.

 

One stripped for refurb and the other waiting the same.

 

They don't need any major parts as such but the Gearboxes will be overhauled and the Hop Ups as well.

 

Son wants Mag Pull Foregrip and Stock

 

I fancy a Crane Stock and Ris.

I just got an M249 Para Full metal beast with the electric box mag....

 

Things i'm gona doo:

1. Respray in all Mat Black (The guy i got it from painted it olive green).

2. Throw out that stupid electric trigger switch. All it does is make trouble (The m249 trigger suffer from a problem resulting it in jamming in full auto ...)

3. Install a Mosfet (I make my own so i know they can take all the amps i release)

4. High speed motor and match the gears to hit 25 BB's per Sec... (Slightly above what the real life does, Don't want to go too wild with this one)

5. Rewire the gun. (The thin wire it somes with are just not good enough)

6. Use Dean-T connectors.

7. Mod the F*bib* out of the internals.... ( It shall become so reliable that i can doo full auto for a year without it breaking! )

 

When i'm done i will add the guides, etc to my web side http://Airsoft.Spells.dk. Then i will play with it for a while (untill i get borred with it again). And probably ends up on sale making me some cash for the effords ....

Anyone know where I can get goggle retention straps in the uk? All ebay is showing up is Hong Kong or America.

yeah I had a set on an older helmet, they're OK if you want to have a set of goggles sat on top of your lid and not have the elastic strap slip upwards but if you're going to be wearing the goggles they're near enough useless.

Some Sorbothane,roughly 3 or 4mm thick.€2

 

I had an idea in school for a hop up arm mod on the VSR. Instead of using a straw or biro cartridge to make a 'nub' between the two prongs,I'll just glue in some sorbo between them to make one full bar. Should go well with a W hold,this uses the same theory as DangitDave's/Dangerwerx Type B arm only for cheap bastards like moi :P

Why are they useless? Because the elastic is tight enough not to move?

Pretty much yeah, if you've got the goggles on top of your head then the elastic will slip upwards but if they're round your face then they shouldn't slip. That said, if you have a weird shaped helmet or odd goggles then the retainer straps might be useful, I just don't see the point in spending money to fix a problem that may not even exist for you.

We'll never know if its a problem because they were only £5 :)
