The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7744 posts in this topic

I am new to airsoft and as I had 2 weeks off work, I decided to get some gear now when I would be at home to get parcels.

So in the last 2 weeks I have bought the following:

British Army surplus Boots, combat trousers and shirt

Scrim scarf

DPM boonie hat

A woodland camo assault vest

410TqciC4oL._SX385_.jpg

A 2 tone MP5SD (£85) (plus can of matt black paint)

3 MP5 mid caps

Begadi triple MP5 open molle pouch

spare battery

Charger

Acog style red dot sight and MP5 rail

41ABaB-j7%2BL._SY100_.jpg

Elbow and knee pad set in woodland camo

Olive drab molle assault backpack (mainly to carry everything in)

Single point sling

tactical gloves

 

The WELL MP5 seems a bit lacking in robustness but shooting a couple of bb's into a cushion in my flat, it seems at least equal to the hire guns I have been using. An Mp5 with acog sight just looks awesome :D

The £30 assault vest though I was very impressed with. It is extremely well made, the only part that looks like it would ever wear out is the molle pouches, which seem to be somewhat cheaper. But as the next cheapest vest I could find cost a lot more and came with no pouches...

I assume you have a defence?

I do not yet have UKARA but I have been visiting a site regularly which has 3rd party insurance and my attendance is logged there. So yes.

Can you find an MP5 with metal internals for £85 in black? I can't without importing it and that seems a lot of hassle. Also I plan to get Tan, Brown and green paint and do a DPM paint job anyway when I get round to it, it doesn't really matter what the original colour is then.

My 6.01mm PDI barrel for my Skorpion arrived today :D and I discovered how X-Fire manage to confidently ship an item which absolutely must not get bent:

Which may have something to do with why I got hit for £6-odd VAT (which I was prepared for and happy with) and £13.50, yes thir-fucking-teen fifty, handling fee. What happened to £8 (about which I was already feeling resentful)???

 

I phoned customs just after I placed the order to find out if I could pay the VAT in advance. Yes I could have, but the item would have to be handed over to some different bit of customs, outside the usual procedure and custody of the carrier, and I would then have to arrange for it's delivery to me from them. It's a fucking racket!

 

Just bought 2 x 9.9V 750mAh 25C LiFe Batteries for my AKS-74U and 2m 16AWG hi-temp silicone wire from Component Shop - £27.55 delivered

This on a Mike Cripps custom 5.1, only bummer is that I can get for around half the price but it'll take 3-6 weeks to get here.

Thought I'd try mesh goggles out, they better than I thought. The ones I choose I got off Amazon and I'm really pleased with them they're slim and are padded, bargain for £9 inc. delivery!

My ultrafire CREE XM-LT6 arrived today. It says its 1800 Lums. I'm not sure if it is or not, all I know is its vision blindingly good! Well worth the £10. I'm just waiting on the rail clip to arrive for it, until then black electrical tape will have to do.

 

I think I should of read the measurement of it when I bought it, it's a little long for my mp5 :P
