  1. Past hour
  2. This ^^^^^ One of my things is realism, it's why I use mid-cap mags, but I am desperate for a GBBR and I've begun to lust after the WE HK416D GBB as it seems to be a good compromise from the high end £500+ TM stuff at £314 I am almost certain that before 2018 is finished I will have switched from my AEG to a GBBR
  3. Just a heads up they're £65 new.
  4. And I ordered a lock-pick set from Amazon! It's all your fault!
  5. Today
  6. The Acetech Lighter looks great, my buddy just bought one for under £70 on Amazon of all places. It has a removable 14mm thread so it can be used on both pistols and AR's. Also, it's prefectly fine for full-auto even though the description asyas otherwise, see Airsoft Mikes review video on his channel.
  7. I can respect that
  8. I have had nothing but quality issues of late with the xcortech stuff. I had one of the very first xcortech systems and pushed the product quite heavily but have lost faith in their QC. So far the ACETECH stuff has been superb and this product I am sure will again eclipse it xcortech counterpart upon release. Soon as I get my hands on one I will review it and put it through its paces at the mall.

  18. Now I am intrigued, can't find ANY info on it?! Prefer the PEQ box on the xcortech, looks more realistic and durable. Can anyone enlighten me?......
  19. Question: If you were to leave a Sig P226 somewhere in the house and forget where it was, where might it be?

      4. Just lying around annoying wife then she has tided it away and you're f**ked !

  20. If/When you come into some cash buy yourself a APS UAR http://www.taiwangun.com/en/electric/urban-assault-rifle-black-aps?from=listing&campaign-id=20 Best spring tester out there, fastest spring change I know under 30 secs (did have 10% off last week like a lot of stuff at TWG) I have got about half a dozen or so springs tested with a bit paper wrapped/stuck on them tested the fps both ways if irregular type so got a rough idea of what is what from hot guns Any hot/warm gun I can pull the spring out & test in UAR then select another 15-20 fps less Takes a bit of guesswork out of it all and does work fairly accurately considering I say fairly accurately coz if you improve seals, correct AoE, spring guides, spacers ShortStroke etc... Well it will throw up other factors into the mix of course blah x 3 I don't normally cut springs - only time I've bothered to cut a spring is cutting off ye old hook bit A new m100 or M105 is only about £7 in the end I'll tend to use the warmer springs in say 300mm guns or less and SS a tooth maybe if needed I tend to reject springs that are too short say less than 150mm normally a v2 box is about 160mm aprox in length - if spring is shorter than box I'll tend to bin it Mainly coz I feel really short springs have less tension as piston releases and doesn't slow piston much I feel that a light shorter spring having less tension in early stages of retraction contributes to overspin more (probably no way as bad as I assume but that is just me being a tart) In general I aim for about a 160mm to 170mm spring length not less but that is just me being a tart Some springs can be a tiny bit tight fir over the spring guide or inside piston blah x 3 If in doubt just buy a new spring of better material than some cheapo china guns They don't cost the earth in the end but a UAR is great little gimmick for testing springs with http://www.airsoftspecops.com/Forums/DisplayComments.php?file=Electric Tech/APS_UAR_is_an_Excellent_Spring_Testing_Tool
  21. Sure! I'll send you a message with the photos!
  22. Mate, that’s on point! He did a jolly good job! That looks like it’s not gonna shake at all. If that fits on the KWA the same, count me in on one too haha
  23. It's a V3, could well be the tappet plate. If the sector gear is shimmed high, so there are fewer shims on the top of the gear, then it'll pinch the tappet plate between the top shell and the sector gear. This can lock a box. The tappet plate should be free to move and return without resistance. And this needs to be true for all positions of the sector gear. If the sector gear has any blemishes and dings on the outer race then it can grab. When I shim my v3 I have to work with that space in mind. And it often means the sector gear runs off centre a little on the piston body (running low in the box). And I have to accommodate that by running the rest of the gears slightly off perfect. Fortunately the v3 box can cope with this and there is enough movement to be able to get a decent mesh on the pinion even if you need to move the gears slightly. This could also be caused by the tappet plate/sector gear shimming. I'd go back to the gearbox and start from scratch. Start with the sector gear by itself. Get the shimming perfect, then drop in the tappet plate and work out exactly how many shims need to be up top for it to run free. Write that down. Then start the regular shimming process from the bevel gear through to the spur gear. Shim the sector gear like normal to the spur gear, but make a note of how many shims are in what position on the sector gear. You need to do this because I can guarantee the shimming done properly has put too few shims on the top of the sector gear. Do the math and work out how many shims need to move on the other 2 gears to be perfect on the sector with the best tappet plate gap. Make the shimming adjustments then check the motor, You should find it'll engage just fine, but it has to be wound in another half turn.
  24. If they're gunked up maybe get some rubbing alcohol (or failing that just some surface cleaner) and press a piece of kitchen towel into the threads then twist. Keep doing until the kitchen towel stops picking up black. Otherwise you're basically going to be rubbing metal shavings etc. into the threads every time you remove it, which isn't good. If you want a good, semi-permanent lube then copper grease is great for this sort of thing and won't dissipate like silicone.
  25. Tried to get on Zero in on my phone this morning (it's not let on on via PC for many months due to the warning messages) I thought I would have a quick look at the sale section, it let me on for two minutes would not let me login though, so I closed down then tried to get back on the forum and it would not even let me do that lol, it would not load in, the forum has been going downhill for ages and the owners do not seem to care, or they would have sorted it out. To be honest it's not a big deal for me, I prefer this forum in all areas, and this forum is so much better then zero in forum in many ways.. Happy shooting all ATB Marc
  26. My phone lets me on it was hadly any issue. Sometimes you get an error code, but it mostly works. Cannot get on it on my pc at all. It used to let me bypass the red warning of doom, but it won’t now
