Got some squirty squirty too, from Maplin.

 

Thanks chaps, very informative.

YW

 

Squirty squirty? I hope you mean silicone oil, because some other types of oil can do serious damage to various AEG parts - for eg WD-40 should never be used in any way which could result in it getting into the hop (so not in the gearbox either as air is drawn through the gb and picks up micro droplets of oil and grease as it does so). That said, while a lot of people seem to enjoy aerosol silicone oil, personally i think it is a sledgehammer to a drawing pin at times - you don't want loads of it inside mags for eg because oily BB's will not be as affected by the hop and possibly not evenly, but just 1 or 2 max drops in a midcap mag is enough to make the spring and follower operate more smoothly and increase capacity sometimes.

Light silicone oil of course.

 

I had noticed that the Dytac midcaps can hold 150 BBs but they are sold as 120's and yes I stripped and oiled them when I got them.

Hmm.. I don't really agree with that. They're both fairly modern styled plate carriers, but that's about where the similarities end. There's a lot of differences.

 

As far as I can see the only difference is built in m4 mag pouch and a steel wire? What else?

Well apart from

 

The cut of the PC

The size difference

The harness

The plate bags

The internal cummerbund

The integrated mbitr pouches

The kangaroo pouch

The shoulder pads

The quick release system

The internal stkss system

The internal pads

The ability to zip on panels

 

They are pretty much the same :)

Well to all intents and purposes they're a pair of small multicam plate carriers, they're going to look somewhat similar regardless. That doesn't make them the same though.

And the very obvious velcro panel ;)

So, I cancelled that UNCompany order above because the shipping turned out to be nearly $50 - went with just the G&P AK receiver, Saw Style pistol grip & top cover for $90.80 shipped. Dunno what has happened to them in the last year - they used to be uber cheap, but these days their shipping is always extortionate - but i can't get that receiver and grip both in stock at the same site to find a cheaper alternative. Considered going with a CYMA receiver instead, but i'm not convinced that the quality of old style CYMA metal receivers matches what I want for this build.

 

I might be able to recoup a few quid by selling the top cover, because I want a ridged AKM style one for this build - it's a part that may get lost i spose... fingers crossed lol!
