  6. Before you go calling people assholes, go back and read over your original post, then look at where you are. You come to an Airsoft forum and write the equivalent of: "Airsoft sucks lol video games are great Airsoft isn't lol" What did you think was going to happen? That we'd all say "Damn, that guy is right" You didn't ask for help. Check your tone and your insulting attitude, kid.

  9. No fancy pics just yet but got a VFC MK20 SSR GBB and it is definitely more fun to mess around with than the G28 😎 Heavy c*nt though! Now to find a suitable set of attachments 😰 Also happened to have a real Hogue pistol grip to replace the VFC Hogue grip, very strange coincidence!

  14. I'm not even sure why we're still entertaining this thread, yes there are laws pertaining to rif use that any of us could easily fall foul of, but every thread that's EVER discussed anything along these lines have all come to the same conclusions : IF YOU WAVE A RIF AROUND ANYWHERE THAT MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC CAN SEE YOU, YOU WILL GET A VISIT FROM THE POLICE. Now irrespective of anyone here's knowledge of the laws, taking the moral high ground because "According to laws XYZ its OK to do this, so it's my right" is bollocks, the plod are obligated to investigate every call they receive regarding potential firearms, even when your in your own back garden or on private land, & there isn't a court in the land that will support you versus the police when in comes to them doing their duties in this matter, whether its them telling you to "don't be a cnut, use some common sense", or the other end of the sliding scale, them shooting you dead. Even if the attending officers are very knowledgeable about Airsoft & are polite when discussing it with you, respond with a smart mouth & you'll find yourself nicked for "causing distress" or public order offences, & your kit grabbed for "assessment", & don't expect to get it back anytime soon. Back on track, if you want to fiddle with your guns in your back garden, let any overlooking neighbours know that their harmless but realistic toys & explain your hobby, maybe even print something out explaining it in more detail, get them on board & understanding. If if you do fire your toys in your garden, set up an appropriate range with a decent backstop to keep any stray bb's within your property boundaries. USE SOME COMMON SENSE ? 😏

    I finished this Umarex Buntline yesterday, after being a little underwhelmed with a KTW Winchester and acquiring a stock cheaply. Turns out the stock is from a Colt SAA 2nd generation, what they put with the actual branded buntlines in 1957. Barrel made from aluminium with brass internally, and a tanaka ejector. Assembles and disassembles as it was designed. Shooting at 0.9 joules and hops 0.32s on a flat trajectory at 40m, the limit of my garden. Probably a realistic 55m but the bbs will be travelling pretty slowly by then. Hammer mod to make the hammer sit more flush with the frame. Bottom one is also hopped but for 0.25s.

  16. I feel vaguely grubby 😕 I'm not going full hpa. I bloody love my GE M870 Shorty, a lot, but the gas capacity is too low for me to fully enjoy it. The conversion to HPA took less time than to open the packaging. So here we are. Am I a filthy speedsofter now?

  19. Format shamelessly stolen from @Asomodai. EXTREMELY LENGTHY REVIEW. Site Name: CAMO CQB Skirmish Arena Contact Details: [email protected] Website Address: https://camoairsoftevents.com/indoor-airsoft-arena/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/CAMOcqb Site Address: 39 Shannon Way, Canvey Island, SS8 0PD Hello all! I can't find a review of CAMO's indoor CQB site on AFUK, which is understandable as it's a relatively new site (only open since 03/04/22). @blobface and I played the Sunday game on 27/11/22. The Site: The CQB Skirmish Arena is really only a part of the CAMO retail complex, and shares space with the shop showroom, technicians' workshop, electronic shooting range, and a slightly weird booth seating area evidently intended for players and shoppers to eat crisps and chat shit. As usual providing a size comparison to other CQB sites isn't easy, but I roughly estimate it at about a fifth of the size of The Mall. The whole complex is arranged over a single floor in an industrial estate on Canvey Island. The provisional (not final) layout of the CAMO retail complex. Yes it does look like Daedalus designed a vape. The site is semi-auto only, with an energy limit of 350FPS (1.14J), and a maximum BB weight of 0.32g (277FPS equivalent). No pyrotechnical devices of any sort - including BFGs - or green lasers are permitted. The site is in perfect condition (as you would expect, being at present less than six months old) and I would expect it to stay that way. I recommend bringing a torch, as the lighting in the play area can be adjusted at random in both brightness and colour. Good: Safe Zone: The safe zone is by a country mile the best I've ever used in a decade and a half of airsoft. It's clean, well lit, gargantuan for the maximum number of players (20), and fully kitted out with worktops. There's no seating, but the aforementioned weird booths are only yards away. Given that the entire complex is on one floor and the safe zone is at one end of it you're never more than 60 seconds' walk from it. Adjacent is a nifty shooting range with AttackSense electronic targets, an ideal way to spend your downtime - or at least it would be if the gaps between the games were more than a few minutes at most. The shooting range. Facilities: Absolutely first class. The complex itself is barely a year old, and was built entirely from scratch, seemingly almost exclusively out of OSB. The shop and booth seating area are large, spotlessly clean, and have multiple power sockets (including USB), large, clean flushing toilets (both male and female). Site Layout: The arena is an American-style killhouse, played at extremely close quarters in a maze of very small spaces arranged to make the most of the limited square footage. If you don't like CQB you're going to hate the site, but you're also not going to go in the first place. If you like CQB this is a very professional-feeling place. Despite the limited square footage the arena itself feels quite large, but unfortunately due to some not-very-creative game modes you're not likely to see much of the opposing side's half, as things have a tendency to stalemate around the middle of the arena, with the small teams still managing to each cover most angles of attack. 20 players (the maximum permitted) is a good limit, but I think it would play better with 16-18 and/or some different game modes. An overview of most of the play area. This render differs from the final layout. Engagement distances are extremely short: shots of 10-15m at the absolute maximum and more like 1-5m on average. There is a lot of peeking doorways to see if someone is squatting low down; remember to check your corners! The respawn points are at opposite ends of the arena, so you'll never be more than 30 seconds from being back in play. Marshalling: The marshals were friendly and very professional, although with so many obstructed sight lines it was presumably pretty difficult for them to see much. One standout thing is the use of kill counters - little boxes counting up (deaths) or down (respawns remaining to each team) in each spawn point. These were particularly good in an initial TDM mode to help assess the balance of the teams; this is a good idea brilliantly executed and I'd like to see more sites use the same system. Safety: A very brief brief with no unfunny jokes, and stringent chronographing of all guns noted against a sheet of players. The ban on pyro is not just a fire safety requirement, it's an absolute must - the spaces are too confined and too close together for people to be lobbing grenades at each other. The BB weight limit is more than adequate given the short distances. Turnaround Time: Very rapid, aided by the fact that the safe zone is readily accessible, but also necessitated by the very short game day (3hrs). Average: Value: £20.00 (£40.00 including rental equipment) for three hours' play would feel a bit steep for an abandoned building, but is pretty reasonable for a brand new purpose built arena with such a limited number of players. For reference, short games at Invicta's Black Site - which is comparable in terms of distance from London and must be at least double the size - are £25.00 for five hours. I would happily have paid another £5.00-10.00 for another 1-1.5hrs of play; three hours felt a bit short. Game Options: The site has evening games (18:00-21:00) on Fridays and day games (10:00-13:00) on Sundays. I'm surprised that CAMO don't run a longer game (or a second one) on Sundays; it seems crazy to only pull in £800 a week from a site that must have cost tens of thousands of pounds to construct. Location: Canvey Island is right out in the Thames delta. While still very convenient for Londoners (at about 45min on the train from Fenchurch Street, followed by a 5min bus ride) if you're not from somewhere in the South East it's going to be a bit of a trek, just like most other airsoft sites. There's plenty of on-site secure parking. Game Modes: Limited to just three (TDM, find-and-retrieve objects, and infection with limited respawns) that I can recall, these were a bit underwhelming and definitely the thing easiest and most impactful to improve. Although the modes were simple and easy to play, aside from infection none allowed players to hunt each other through the entire arena, as flanking opportunities are restricted by the narrowness of the building itself. I would like to have roving objectives that enabled the sides to see more of the opponents' half of the arena during a game. Another feature I felt was under-used was the arena's smart lighting system - plunging the whole place into darkness would have been more interesting if it had lasted more than 30-60 seconds of every 10 minutes. There's great potential for gas-and-spring days, or "night" games in total darkness, and with only 20 players it could also be financially viable to just rent the entire site for private games. Playerbase: The playerbase trends heavily towards young speedsofters, which is to be expected given the generally fast-paced play. Players were generally well-behaved, especially when it came to trying to limit overshooting, but I felt there were a few slightly questionable hits not taken, particularly given the extremely close range where it was hard to dismiss the tracer BBs visibly bouncing off opponents. Site Shop: This is a tricky one. The fact that CAMO's actual online sales and retail operation are on-site means you have access to a massive range of guns, some accessories, and a professional workshop right next to the play area. The entire complex takes card payments. The arena counter has some of what you'll need on the day: BBs, propellant, snacks and soft drinks. There's no hot food, although with only 3 hours' play you may not work up much of an appetite. What lets the side down somewhat is the relative paucity of things players might need on the day, like PPE, LBE, batteries, or silicone oil. For example, if you're a CQB site operating partially in the dark, it's a bit weird to have only one weight (0.20g, too) of tracer BB to sell. Bad: To be quite honest I can't think of a single thing that isn't nitpicking. Conclusion: The CQB Arena is a good morning's play, in a style and setting that's relatively novel for this part of the UK at least. The complex itself is simply a cut above any other site I've ever visited. The arena itself is quite interesting and it would take many game days to learn it all, CAMO run it very professionally, and the players seem to make the most of both. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in some CQB, and we'll certainly be back. Bullpup Watch: My AUG and a P90.

    What have you made?

    So, as can be seen in THIS POST, I bought a crappy cheap mandible for my helmet. It did not go well. However, I was able to salvage the arms that attached the mandible to the helmet rail, and I had an old mask that I've never used knocking around. Some measuring, fiberglass paste, sanding, more measuring, drilling and finally painting.....

  30. Yes, airsoft isn't life. We have other commitments, responsibilities and..... Free time. If you've been threatened contact the police. If you list something expect responses or offers (you should receive emails from the forum for all direct messages so no excuses as a response takes 5 mins). If you take someone's money and don't oblige by keeping your side of the deal, then there's no equilibrium.. You're in the wrong. Don't blame the tool you use (forum). Learn how to use it properly. Buyers may flare up if they've given you their last £30 for the month on some used ex sf gucci wangers or whatever, that purchase may have been a big deal to them. Respect goes along way. I hope you resolve all issues concerning the OP and continue to be a valued member. No need to fall out. Its not football. Take care and love one another. Yours, Jerry springer

  32. You have two pieces of negative feedback. One from @DaktariT who has made a perfectly reasonable comment here, so I doubt you're referring to him. The other is from @Tommo92who joined in August and who has had zero interaction with this forum other than with your advert, and is vanishingly unlikely to be reading this. Perhaps having a generalised rant about this whole forum based on one person who is only tenuously a member might not be the best way to win friends and influence people.

    More to life than pewing !

    Not entirely sure how your kit sales have escalated to threats against you & your family (which obviously isn't acceptable) but then I don't know who you've been dealing with, nor the tone of of messages between you & your buyers. I will also agree that yes, life is more important & does get in the way of airsoft...... BUT If you've got time to put sales threads up, give out your payment details & take the money, then you need to get the gear sent out in a prompt manner. Edit: i should add that if "life", or more to the point, emergencies, do prevent you from getting stuff posted, you need to be 100% transparent about this & keep buyers in the loop. This place is full of members with loads of great feedback, & for good reason😏

  35. 1) It’s the bastard child of EDRL and MERDC. 2) ‘merica! 3) Mr T loves it. If you don’t know who Mr T is I pity you, fool. 4) It technically the third best camo in history. After Brown and Green. But it’s better because it’s got both in. 5) It was created with one function. To skull f£&k ruskies in Central Europe. It’s still there, waiting in the forest. 7) In 1978 four elite commands escaped from maximum security detention. They were located by Aerosmith and the subsequent classified debriefing resulted in three things. Woodland camo and two things that have yet to be made public. 10) It was still being issued new in 2015 to guard units. Probably never gone out of inventory in the Armies of the US since introduction. It will not die. 11) Today’s programme was brought to you by the number one and the letter ‘merica. 12) Few things say the eighties like and getting out old painless. 13) I you’re wondering where number 6 and 9 is…. It’s wearing Woodland camo so you can’t find it. 14) Get some! Our next episode will be on Alice - the US Forces ex-girl friend.

    THE TM MWS thread

    Picked my first MWS up on Monday - managed to source the g&p full stock and front end from a lovely chap on here. Had an absolutely brilliant time rebuilding the front end & threw in a maple leaf 60d rubber & an omega nub for now. luckily for me I must have put everything back together okay as it still cycled, fed & shot a smidge over 1j on some freezing cold Ultrair with .28 devil blasters. id like to get a fixed carry handle upper at some point and run an a1/2 hand guard but I’m more than happy with it for now.

Been trying to sign up for the last few months but it looks like the email side of it went pear shaped 🤷‍♂️ Been playing airsoft for the last year at a local site in essex, For some reason i cannot even remember why i bought a 2 tone rif airsoft gun, Since then done the ukara and the collection has now grown to 2 gas pistols 1 gas gun 3 aeg m4 variants 1 sniper rifle Ronin conversion kit Still trying to work out which loadout suits me best depending on which game is being played and losing the odd bit of kit here and there running around like a Blue arsed fly in the middle of forests on an early sunday morning is quite entertaining Definitely hooked on it and started bringing the grandson along aswell to get him to have some sort of "normal" day at least once a week which doesn't Involve TikTok or being stuck in front of a Pc all day, He seems to be taking to it quite well 👌😊
