    Liking the shottie holster! Finally with Christmas play time managed to finish what I’m calling an AK105-VSU. Tried and hopefully succeeded in painting it in such a way it works with both the GZ and RG load outs 🤞

  4. Not necessarily, I turned up at a site years ago, & a team turned up, teens & early twenties, total shower of shit bar one, he claimed to have previously been TA & still had access to berets & cap badges, so in his infinite wisdom thought would mark them out as a team if they all wore them. Thing is, it was my regiments beret & badge, I worked hard for mine & I'd had a couple of mates die wearing theirs, so seeing a bunch of long haired wankers make absolute cnuts of themselves in them really fucked me off, & I told them so🤬. While that situation is rare, my experience shows it can happen, so I'd always tell people in threads like this, be careful, act with respect & if in doubt, don't do it.

  8. Since we're well off topic now, I heard a player-marshal grumbling after a game that he'd "hit someone, and the cheeky cnut had put his hand up, then ducked back into cover." I kindly let him know that the cheeky cnut was in fact waving cheerily at him because his BBs were dropping about 3m short. Perhaps ill advised, but he was already convinced that he was hitting me and would have been salty anyway, so I might as well have fun with it.

    Joining a Team?

    We're playing pretend soldiers with toy guns. It's something that little children do, plus a budget. I've never understood the urge to take this hobby remotely seriously.

    Well I got an unexpected Christmas present, as I won a FB comp from one of our advertisers Airsoft competitions. Entered it in October and forgot all about it Christmas Eve got message saying I had one. Being sent to me on Tuesday. Looking forward to it.

  12. I've never been a fan of banning things as the issue is usually the soft fleshy bit holding it. I'd rather sites booted those who act like twats, whether it's not calling hits, overshooting or something else

  13. As a fellow grumpy old cnut, I'd be happy if gats were kept stock rof, or even better would be that they matched their real steel counterparts. I cringe when I'm on site & I hear gats running at a ridiculous rof, & usually take an instant personal dislike to their small dicked owners 😏

    HPA user here... personally I love to use semi and only use Full auto when someone deserves it (Not hit taking) - I can adjust the ROF on mine to Wanker level...but why? All your doing as advertising that you a cunt and there is no need. One lad on our site who plays every now and again sets his up to fire at a billion rps...and everyone thinks he's a knob. Marshalls informed and aware and chrono'd to right limits...but still a wanker for running something that fast and overshooting peeps as well. (He's young and I think trying to show off to his mates with his setup all the time) I always wary of peeps on the site, even more so for rentals & new players..we need more peeps coming into Airsoft, not driving them away by shooting the crap out of them with silly ROF setups. **Btw using HPA as an example...seen plenty of peeps with DSG builds and high ROF builds being dicks as well... But it's airsoft..and people are people.... Merry Xmas everyone.

  20. Why do you want to change anything? have you used the gun? if so have you chrono'd it have you set the hop for the bbs you want to use? have you check the range(if you are getting 50ms you'll be putting in a lot of effort for not massive returns) other than give the barrel a clean unless you have specific goals in mind just leave it alone, especially if you only have one gun you really don't want to start upgrading a gun unless you have a back up.

  21. Would only be controversial if you wear badges and berets on it you haven't earned. Doesn't bother me overly being currently serving but it does some people. If you wanna walt as the RAF Regiment then that's your (slightly weird) lifestyle choices chum, as far as I am concerned! What does annoy me is airsofters buying gear that is on the restricted list currently, so things like the latest model of body armour etc that should really still be with HM Forces. Essentially, its theft.

  22. Which is still 3x the ROF of a basic-bitch AEG. I'd suggest that this reveals a significant difference in players' thinking. Me, I reckon real-steel ROF of about 10rps is sufficient for airsoft use, and that if you can't hit what you're aiming at with a burst of three or four BBs, then putting ten or fifteen into the air with the same trigger pull isn't the best solution. Even if half the HPA users aren't getting a crazy ROF, then half are. It's the exceptions at the high end that concern me, no matter how few. It wouldn't, for example, be OK to say "Well, there's a sniper out there shooting 0.5g at 4 Joules, but there's only one of them."

    Been into airsoft now about 5 months, just got my UKARA a few days after Xmas.. I'm a child in a toy store.. so many goodies. I've been running an M4 style with plate carrier so have reduced that somewhat to a micro fight rig for smg stylr loadout to go with my Xmas pressies.. Golden Eagle gas shotty and Krytac Kriss Vector.. I'm on a budget so bought used, but I'm pretty stoked.

  25. My old site had a ban on CO2 and HPA. Why? No idea and tbh I don't really care why as I wasn't running the games. At the end of the day its down to site owners to decide what rules the do and don't want to implement. If people don't like a site's rules then don't play there rather than moaning about it online

    So I found a crack in the upper receiver of my G&G Predator. New upper fitted and now rocking a sort of two tone black upper and rail, with worn camo lower and stock. Quite like it

    Did some modifying over the Christmas break. Added a weathered GHK akm wood kit bought off a member on these forums, to my E&L AKM and also added a side rail optic mount to my 7.62X39mm LCT RPK to make it somewhat resemble a RPKN

  28. Anyways, let’s step away from Defences at the moment and take a look at my full black M4PI. I am buzzing now and can’t wait to play on Boxing Day. The tactical torch and red dot just blend in so nicely now.

    I had someone twerking at me last game day from a long range (about 75m ish), right in the middle of the path. Clearly he didn't think my VSR could reach out that far... He was wrong

    Some of my proudest collections. Took some real efforts to find stock and get into my hands: Umarex full size G36 VFC AEG M27 and GBB HK417 20" G&G M14EBR limited 22" silver version NPOAEG SR2M (Could have been the last one available in the world) Ares L115 gas sniper E&L AK74M with a real Soviet 1P29 King Arms R93 LRS2 gas sniper (not the ordinary springer one) Also got a VFC Mk20 GBB stuck at customs due to Christmas and covid...

  33. Pussys, dicks and arseholes. Airsoft has always been this way, I find I just take on the challenge of out smarting them and making the way they play ineffective for them. I do completely get that dick players don’t do any good for potential newbs. However of all airsoft gripes dishonesty and non hit taking are the game day killers for me.

  34. best days airsoft i ever had there were maybe 1 or 2 pews that didn't have airlines. even though i was on the dark side myself at the time i saw all those air lines and thought "well today is gonna be shit", but boy was i wrong about that. basically every usual gripe about airsoft proceeded to not happen the entire day and the closest thing to dickish behaviour (and i'm really stretching the definition here) was opting to fire one round somewhere it wouldn't hurt over risking a (non-mandatory at that site) bang kill. when the players aren't arseholes the gear they're using becomes irrelevant.

    Roman Kurmaz replicas

    I don't think I've ever promoted it here for various reasons, but it got to a point some time ago that I'd been a customer of Roman for so long and purchased so much that we worked together on a variant of the G3s he makes done to my design spec. I make something like 2-3 euros in what amounts to store credit if someone orders an item in the 'F9' cut from him. If anyone's interested feel free to DM me I won't clog this thread with self promo. Before that partnership became a thing though, I would get people messaging me on social media fairly often with questions about his stuff, so to answer the FAQs I put together a video. The jist of the video is, essentially, you need to be *mega* specific if you want to order anything from his business. This doesn't just apply to him though, there are people all over the world that make custom gear to order and it's a process I've been through many, many times over the past decade and the very first time doing it I learned just how specific you need to be if you actually want to get what you're picturing in your mind when placing an order. I think to the average person who lives a normal life and hence doesn't have an intimate knowledge of the production of military type uniforms and other tac gear they'd probably find the level of detail needed quite OTT. I make no excuses for his customer service, it's lacking... end of. His stuff is 'less' custom than what is offered by some businesses in that it fellows a template, but it is custom made tactical equipment none-the-less and the same rules apply to his uniforms as to any custom sew business; they can't read your mind and it's basically impossible to exaggerate just how easily things get lost in translation. Not addressing this specific situation now just trying to help people avoid the same fate in future. To illustrate the point, I've collaboratively designed my own piece of kit for commercial sale being made by a company in the US this year and as incredibly simple as this thing is (and looks), it took hours worth of phone calls and dozens of e-mails back and forth adding up to many pages of descriptive text and other media after already drawing up dimensioned schematics, just to get 1 simple little item to be manufactured in the correct way I wanted. So on top of what I mentioned in the linked video, if you want to order from Roman the key is to make zero assumptions and when you think you're making none at all, make a few less. If you want buying kit to just involve checking out through the cart, don't try to get things custom, you'll end up dissatisfied; sorry if that's an unpalatable reality check for anyone reading. Ideally, supply him with the fabric yourself (he has a UK address you can just send it to) for the very best end result in terms of getting exactly what you want and what you've imagined. Or ask him for details and pictures of the materials he has to hand for the camo/s you're interested in. Anyone is welcome to @ me here or DM me on this topic any time. In the event you like the platform I have a facebook group setup that's for discussion of topics just like this and is aimed at spreading info; I generally ask that folks ask me questions in there rather than DMs if at all possible so that the answers are public rather than hidden to the world - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1609908462423146

    OK, just fitted my new madbull rail on my mws. Frankly buying stuff for my pew has been a panacea for me these past 12 months. Don't regret a single penny. Internally it's all stock, I have a Magpul UBR (I took the little compartment out as I love the skeletonised look), rs Eotech xps2, rs Surefire M900a, an angry gun tracer unit and a Ferro Slingster.

  37. Okay, we have an update, which won't surprise regular followers of this thread. So in the tortoise versus tortoise race between Gunfire and Taiwangun to import a RIF into the UK, team Taiwangun seem to have fallen at the first hurdle, and to quote an email they sent me last night, "...for the moment we are still not able to sent the package. We are working with DHL but is not so simple" [sic]. So in short we haven't even got to a place where getting TG to import into the UK is a realistic prospect. Team Gunfire, however, did manage to send their parcel that I ordered on the 19th December on the 21st December, after which we enter the wonderful world of UPS again. To be fair to UPS things have improved slightly, insofar as they managed to get the parcel to the UK on the 23rd December, but unfortunately there was no Christmas miracle. On the 28th December I received an email telling me that UPS were delivering the parcel (with apparently no RIF declaration required), but the cynic in me said that this was unlikely to happen, and it didn't. An import scan took place on the 4th January, and on the 5th January UPS rang me to tell me that unless I filled in a RIF form by 1400 that day they'd be sending the package back to Poland. I pointed out that this was the first time they'd spoken to me and I'd received no emails or phone calls to ask me to fill in a form. The agent then emailed me a form to fill in, which amused me somewhat as it contained a packing list that included cake, cheese, cookies, soup, fudge, a handwarmer and some waffles, rather than a RIF and some kit. Anyway I sent UPS an old form I had which I amended with the new order, they billed me the import charges which worked out at about £60 for a £300 order (20%-ish?), plus a £10 processing fee. The parcel is currently sat awaiting Customs clearance, but is getting scanned every other day. Knowing UPS they'll update the tracking after the parcel is on my doorstep, so it's anyone's guess when it'll be released and delivered; I'll reserve judgement on how well they've done after the parcel turns up. Lessons learned? TG is still a no-go. Clearly using DHL is not working out as they thought. Gunfire is a possibility so long as you don't need anything too quickly and you meet their minimum order threshold. UPS are a lottery as usual, but at least their UK brokerage team called me (eventually), and they themselves said they think things are better now, compared to 12-months ago. I'll update again when the Gunfire parcel arrives, so you can judge the delivery times yourself and whether it's worth the inevitable hassle.

  38. 'This could be a good start to a Kyber pass style AK build, but only for the advanced tech, since the gearbox is completely dead.' Translation: 'It's so fucked that you could build an authentic looking fucked up rifle from it, but only if you know what you're doing.'

  39. Bought this WE Scar H SSR fitted with Inferno Gen2 premium mainly for the engine . It was painted black at some point by a previous owner ( not the seller ) . I was praying I could get the paint off and it took me two days with Isopropyl , kitchen green scourers and a toothbrush . Here it is as nature and the Belgians intended :-

  40. Hello all, I have only recently gotten into airsoft (played my first game on the 19th December 2021) but already hooked. my fiancé has bought me a gun already and since playing that first game I realised I needed a torch and better sight. so here is my work in progress. It’s a Bulldog M4PI RIS CQB with a M300a Tactical Torch & a FOCUHUNTER 2 MOA red dot sight. I know it’s not the best but everyone starts somewhere and this is mine. Planing to keep playing with this rifle for quite some time then invest in a different riffle after expecting everyone else’s on game days. I also completely forgot to order batteries too so have been able to set the sight up properly or test the light but it should all arrive Friday. So will update you all when I have chance to set it all up.

    As a HPA sniper (best of both worlds!), I'll add spring snipers to that list. Plenty of spring snipers who go for headshots, try to inflict pain because it's "funny" and ignore their MED. Not all HPA users are dicks, just like not all dicks are HPA users.

    High ROF is not the issue ( i don't see the point you can still suppress with low ROF and save ammo) but the player them selves as only one person is having fun when some one gets lit up with 60rd and the person having fun is an arsehole. site I play at doesn't have rof restrictions, but if you're spamming people words will be had.
