The 'What have you just bought' Thread

Thanks mate :) I'm planning to remodel the interior of the pistol grip anyway, so yeah that's a possibility. I don't know how I missed it when I was on hobbyking myself. I got 1 of these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=6786 which obviously will not fit in the original battery space, but it will fit in the grip and with space for Deans, 16AWG & a MOSFET.

 

Are you going to FET yours up? I was thinking: http://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/gate-electronics-mosfet-switch-picossr

 

I have one in my AKS-74U and it was an obvious improvement for trigger response. That said, Phatima packed up last time out and I haven't had time to dismantle her. I don't think the FET is responsible, but the 1st one I ever tried did something not that dissimilar to this fail, so I'm not buying, or recommending, another PicoSSR until I'm sure.

 

Edit: I'd rather use Turnigy batteries than that Zippy ting...

To be honest I am not gunna bother with a fet, as on something soo space restrictive and cheap, it's abit of a waste in my current view. That said I may fit a fet one day.

 

16awg is abit big, that battery I got doesn't have 16awg it's a lot smaller.

  • 2 x Avalon (VFC) BCM 14.5" AEGs
  • SureFire X300
  • SureFire M300a
  • FirstSpear Assaulters' Gun Belt, AGB Pad 6/12 and 6/12 Cummerbund Upgrade

There was probably at least a month or more gap between the different orders but stuff always seems to end up arriving in one big lump for various reasons; customs inspections, differebt lengths of shipping delays etc.

Proper shots of the rifles are coming of course, just waiting on some background material.

I still baffles me why you would want more than one of the same gun? Not you personally Chris but just in general. You see people post pics of their collection and its 5 M4s just with different rails optics etc.

 

anyway back on topic:

 

Still pitting bits together for the VSR so parts list for this order:

 

Ebay Bipod (sorry marcus i'm impatient!)

Guarder Hop Rubber (couldnt find a 9ball one in stock somewhere with reasonable postage)

Dangerworks Type B hop leaver.

I've just bought some MTP kecks for £11.50 off fleabay and, depending on the price, I may buy a shirt too. I'm thinking that if there are places left, I may go to Stirling's England vs Scotland weekender and tans is the required kit for England - I have a DDPM shirt though which, even though it's massive and so worn it's like pyjamas, would do. I spose I ought to make a gear wanted ad in the Classifieds.

 

Dunno though - it's CQB @Skirmish on the 8th so I may go to that instead.

Soo... A little shopping has been made...

 

Mich 2000 helmet (replica ofc duh)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330727130012 So I can put on my Polish wz.93 camouflage cover on it :3

 

Half Mask

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321094526364 Yes... I do not like it but due the stories I heard for a veteran airsofter... I decided to buy one.

 

Buut as I hate walking around with one I decided to buy a balaclava to fit over in my helmet + give me some heat in cold weather AAAND to hide the mask away :3

Just paid for a PBS-4 suppressor from our own dear GrammarNazi75 - thanks Lewis :)

 

That can occasionally go on my AKS-74U, but also I think it'll be major cool on my Skorpion :D

 

And £25 deposit for OP: Shining Light / Deets Thread

I just couldn't bring myself to give JBBG my money so i ended up getting some Vanaras 0.40g.

 

1000 tan one for £13 all in.

 

Will see how they work.

 

Just need to find a TBB and she should be good to go.

i have just received my PSG 100 spring to replace the PSG 120 spring i fitted into my G&G L85, which bumped the FPS from 260 (on 0.2's) to a unusable 380fps (on 0.25's) <_<<_<

 

fingers crossed for somewhere near 330'ish fps lol :lol::lol:

I'm kind of going that direction to be honest. On a base level I'll only actually have a couple of ARs in each category as it were; few AEGs, 3 TM SOCOMs and 1 GBBr (for now).

 

I get that people who don't have the time to intricately research the many, many kinds of handguards etc just see "yet another M4'". But especially once you get in to the world of GBBRs and fitting real parts to them, then (IMHO) the mind-blowing amount of parts available to fit means that classifying it as just one type of firearm is pretty much incorrect. Especially when most airsoft guns do the same thing on the insides.

 

There's also the serious aspects of ancillaries, accessories, LBE and tooling. I mean sure you can buy an MP5 and then a suitable battery a scope mount and a box of plastic mid-caps won't cost all that much in the grand scheme of airsoft. But when you've dropped everything you've got in to the very best magazines for your one type of gun, the greatest mag pouches money can buy, expensive accessories that often might not suit another platform and (most importantly) invested significant time in to learning intimately how to work on one platform and then money in to buying very specific tools for that one family of guns... well you kinda wanna stick to your strengths, as it were.

 

Obviously a lot of airsofters out there want a gun wall with as many different models as they can physically get because that's what they think is cool, more power to them. But I joined up as an armourer because I like working on guns and airsoft lets me do that in my spare time using exactly the guns and parts I personally like the most, rather than the ones a military publication says I have to use (which are probably quite boring a lot of the time). Not having an argument here with you in any way or saying you're wrong, just putting across my view point for those who might not have considered some of the points above.

Just took delivery of a couple of CYMA AK parts: a black tactical hand grip and a replacement top handguard with integrated RIS.

Fair one Chris. Each to their own.

I have just picked up 3 more glock mags. I now have 6 working normal mags, 1 non working mag and - 1 extended mag.

Need to set up a sniper belt rig so not carrying all my other "stuff" around with me. So if anyone see a OD PLB WAS belt going let me know!

question is though... 2 identical AEGs, clearly they're not going to stay identical for long so what's going on them?

Ah, well, good question; well presented (bet you've never heard that before). These particular guns obviously pack a fair bit of PTS stuff that's no longer in production which is why I picked them up now even though they're not necessarily going to be the next projects for me.

 

I did however pick up some 2 PTS MIAD sets in FDE and FG before supplies dried up so that settles the grips and colour schemes. I'm thinking one'll stay 14.5" with the nice mid-length gas system just cause I think it looks cool and one I'll swap down to a 11.5" since I always play CQB these days. The BCM receiver sets are obviously very shiny and pretty so they'll stay, as will the magpul trigger guards, the Battle Arms selectors and the BCM charging handles. I'll keep one of the SureFire brakes and probably go for one of the new PTS Griffin devices on the other. Not sure about stocks or handguards; there's so many options on the RS market that are actually in similar price brackets to the Madbull rails and since the guns are wired for LiPos in the buffer tube I'm not limited by battery storage up front. Definitely a tube on at least one of them, Midwest or Centurion most likely.

I look forward to seeing the FG one when you get round to doing it, the few guns I've seen that use a lot of it look great- Just most people seem to ignore it and go for FDE which in my opinion at least, is a shame.

Not EXACTLY what you were looking for but there's a Coyote set on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warrior-Assault-System-PLB-belt-system-with-Yoke-and-Pouches-in-Coyote-BNWOT-/321260139977?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item4acc98b5c9

Funnily enough I did look at the glocks, but I can't get over the fact that it does not have a hammer.

 

I know that's odd, but it's just me :wacko:

 

I hear they are a good performer though.

TM glock is an awesome little gun, I was dubious myself til I bought one but it shoots straight for a fair old distance and has never once vented a mag on me. Even got 2 full mags worth of BBs from one gas fill last weekend when it was 3C outside, although admittedly it didn't lock back the slide the second time it was empty.
