231073541612_1.jpg Desert Camo Tactical Vest - £12.55 delivered ~ Fleabay / couldn't resist it => 10% off sale

 

I'm not entirely sure about this - it looks to be some funky pre or post PLCE experimental thingy, but I think my bodging skills are up to fitting tropentarn G36 pouches to it, so with my recent foray into MTP BDU's and my experimental G36KVS, all I need is some brown Altbergs and a tropentarn hat and that's a PMC loadout sorted. Oh yeah, and a tan belt. And knee pads. And gloves. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

I think it's called a M16 magazine carrier, some American design to allow soldiers to carry more ammunition in easy to get to areas without sacrificing tactical movement such as crawling.

^^Oh right, yeah it's not a million miles from a basic yank LBV, just a bit more substantial. I'm hoping that the lace-up design will allow me to wear it tight enough to support my back without having to wear my stabiliser, but still easy enough to get on and off. I've got my RICAS set up good and tight too, but it's such a ball ache wriggling in and out of it.

130873102309_1.jpg AB MOSFET - £20 posted ~ Fleabay

 

I was tempted to try out the Pico SSR2, because the PicoSSR I had was not at fault for Phatima jamming (that was down to the screw that holds the piston head on coming loose so it and the bearing axle-washer-thingumajig rattling around inside the piston - bloody lucky i got away without loosing gear teeth or getting gouges in the cylinder). Unfortunately while I was putting her back together I managed to short some part of the circuit out so the wiring got so hot it went limp and the battery was too hot to handle easily... it seems the FET didn't appreciate that because it's permanently 'on' now :( When push came to shove though, the PicoSSR2 is £21.50 delivered from Fire Support and this'un is active breaking. That said, had FS had any of the Pico AB ones left in stock, I was impressed enough with the 1st one to have paid the £28 delivered for it, but they didn't.

 

Anyone got any experience/gossip with/about JeffTron MOSFET's? They're cheap from gunfire.pl

 

Edit: I also just bought this =>

190982151917_1.jpg 1/6th scale (I don't want the Garand but it was a lot of 2 for half the price of the next cheapest)

 

But why? Why oh why Ian, you dopey cnut? What possible use is a 1/6th scale non-shooting model gun on an airsoft field...

 

Weeeeeell... it's because along with the Cheburashka patch on my KLMK's, I'm going to find room on my Soviet webbing for her:

Ordered some "brand new British army ESS glasses" (ok so it isn't an exact quote but you get the message)

I don't know what model they are! The only ones I know are ICE 3s tbh.

Still though, great value I think for £21. Includes the bag, extra yellow and smoke lenses, instructions, retention strap and cloth etc.

They'll be the newer 3's or the older 2.4's

Cheers Nutster! I'm assuming they're 2.4s because the ICE 3s have straight temples / arm things whereas these have earpieces that go around your ear more. That's the difference I immediately noticed between the models anyway, there are probably a few more differences guys who are more knowledgeable on eye pro would notice but aesthetically look very similar.

 

EDIT: actually I think those were the others I was originally going to get. I think they are the 3s :)

Some Neoprene gloves,8€ in Aldi,don't worry,I'll be heading back to Cavan soon*. Hey,I'm a 15 year old desperately trying to save money for a new gun,Don't bluddy judge me.The inner geardo in me is screaming ''Why u no buy soviet leather glooooove'' but I can't resist dem modern textiles yo.

 

Took them out for a test,more or less waterproof except for the section which allow your thumb and index finger to be open,pretty damn warm too. I like this purchase :)

 

*It's an Irish Joke thing that county Cavan is full of cheapskates.

 

EG:

 

A Monaghan Footballer ,a meath Footballer and a Cavan Footballer were out fishing on Lough Sheelin one day when Jesus walked across the water and joined them in their boat.

The boys were gob-smacked! "Jaysus" was all they could say in dumb harmony!

The monaghan man said humbly "Jesus, me back's been at me ever since I played U16 football against Meath many moons ago. Can you do anything for me? Jesus touched his back and he was relieved of the pain for the first time in 44 years.

The Meath man, sporting a pair of thick black rimmed glasses with milk-bottle-end lens, "I haven't seen the stout in front of me since I got a hit in the 1965 under-21 championship match against Dublin. What can you do for me." Jesus gently removed the antique glasses and flung them into the lake and immediately the Meath man could see as far as the Tower of Lloyd in Kells.

Jesus then turned to the Cavan man who leapt to the back of the boat and cried "Don't put a finger on me - I'm on a disability pension!"

 

Thought AF UK would benefit from an Injection of Cancer Irish humor.

A Trijicon RM01 RMR. Was a bargain considering the RRP but I'm still feeling a little bit sick about the whole thing.

 

At this rate my Glock is going to end up being my most expensive airsoft item, fucked up.

 

*** edit ***

Just added it all up, had I bought all of it at RRP/new it'd have set me back £890. Now I actually do feel sick :-(

I almost went after them too... on the grounds that, when it comes to low/midcaps, you can never have too many, but I'm trying to stop buying airsoft stuff for the time being so i can get a graphics pad for me lappy.

Hey Russ, whatever you like, eh? If they've been good to you, go with 'em. I mean we have got to leave room in our opinions for the fact that businesses can change and, even though cynicism is usually the best policy when it comes to determining how people will behave in relation to making money, good customer service is a way to make more money by, as with your situation, generating return business.

 

Let us know how you get on with that Baofeng, eh?

My view of onlybbguns.com is that they do sell a lot of poor quality stuff aimed at kids who use them in their back gardens etc, They do have a few items they sell that are good enough for use in skirmishing. Unlike other similar web sites, they have video reviews of their guns, they are actually very useful as seeing someone handle something gives a better idea of quality than a carefully lit photo.

 

In this case I knew I wanted this particular gun and they had it £10 cheaper than anywhere else and I had a code for £5 off. If you watch a few of this guy's videos, you will realise that he's not usually this enthusiastic. He's also very good at telling you what a gun is capable of. My MP5SD for example he rated as a starter gun and it is quite capable for skirmishing but is a bit limited so he was spot on there.

 

I wanted the ASG or HFC Mk23 socom for 2 reasons, the silencer extends the inner barrel making it very accurate for a pistol and because it is Non Blowback it is almost silent. I know a few people who use these and they are excellent.

Yeah, it's a good pistol - few moving parts too, so unlikely to break easily. At the sale price of fifty notes I'm tempted: the USP frame fits very nicely in my hand. Let me know when you get yours if the slide is painted blue or blue plastic, if you wouldn't mind?
