    My SAS M16/M203 is now done. Still waiting on side mounted m203 sight which is currently in the post. But it boasts; * accurate trades * C7 upper * STEEL barrel/front sight/flash hider * STEEL small parts, mag catch/selector etc. Just need to decide whether to leave as is, do a jungle stripe or GW1 look.

    The reason I haven't bought an airsoft gun in a while, been saving up for this newly acquired baby ❤️ (apologies if non-airsoft guns aren't allowed, thought this may be of interest to gun addicts such as myself)

    Well done Druid for coming up with a thread that for some is pretty personal, & thank you for sharing your experiences, not always easy when "in the company" of us rufty tufty manly toy soldiers. ive been there, been fighting severe depression for 20 years (last year I was diagnosed with cumulative ptsd) & bout 6-7 years ago I was in a major slump, marriage was on the rocks & had literally given up, not just airsoft but life itself, it was a very dark time for me & it was only going one way 👎🏻. i was part of a team, the sea devils, great very mixed bunch of guys & we'd try to play once or twice a month, & meet up for "team meetings" at various pubs every month to plan the next months gaming etc, good times. anyway, I dropped out of it all, shut meself away & essentially lost the plot, including getting committed, not good ☹️. my teammates came to my aid, arranging a private game with our our sister team, wraith alpha, & insisting I be there, even chucking me in the back of a motor, the other team putting us up at their homes in Bristol, played the game day at the old courthouse in the centre of Bristol, & it was a great day, & then that night we hit the town, plentiful amounts of cider & prob the best curry I've ever had. that weekend literally pulled me back from the edge, not just good gaming but supportive friends when I needed them most. the Sea Devils eventually folded, shame but pressures of life & other hobbies meant we didn't get out as much, & im prob the only member still playing. for me airsoft is very therapeutic, it's a semi aggressive outlet but without posing too much of a risk to others (I'm a former squaddie, boxer, county rugby player & ice hockey player), so having a physical outlet has always been a part of life for me.

    UKARA only applies to retailers, hence United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association. There is no penalty for a private seller selling to someone without it. The act you're looking for is the VCRA. Feel free to Google it for all the Incredibly dull long winded legal mumbo jumbo that in reality is totally unenforceable because there's about 3 police officers left in the whole country, and 2 of them are busy dealing with someone who said something mean on Facebook. I'm sure @Rogerborg will be in here shortly to blow his legal load all over you.

    THE TM MWS thread

    so I eventually joined the MWS club and to make it have a variable FPS because of the crazy UK weather I fitted an NPAS I was worried that the little adjustment tool would disappear into my bag never to be found again so I found a good solution. Basically I dremeled a channel into the stock plate the same shape as the little tool. Now it won't get lost and always be handy.

    Disco 3 is awesome. Electrics can be fun, and some of the maintenance is expensive(clutch and rear cam belt). I own 2 disco 3’s and they are definitely the best of both worlds, versatility of the defender, comfort of the Range Rover. Complimentary picture.

    About how some delusional fuckers think airsoft is in someway like real life. You know the type, they daydream about how one day they will called up to defend their country with all their airsoft experience. Those that believe shouting tango and holding onto their mates shoulder while entering a room makes them the airsoft equivalent of the sas.

    As the title says curious how many of you have been in THAT rut that you were close to saying “f**k it I’ve had enough I’m out of here!” And then a gameday came along and basically saved the sport for you . mine was about 4 yrs ago , I still wasn’t fully recovered from a motorbike crash (so my mobility was still well down) was slowly coming out of a rather nasty bought of depression (the accident/coming to terms with my future physical limitations/work stress and the ghosts of my past life) and a good 18mths of ‘meh’ gamedays so it all sort of came to that perfect shit storm around Xmas time when out of the blue I get an invite to a private day , it was invite only by the organisers , no “can my friend come” just regular trustworthy players who they personally asked there was to be no marshals that day (most would be playing) just self marshaling by the players . I was very chuffed to be invited but going to say no as I had pretty much decided to knock the game on the head but my best mate (i mete him through airsofting) spoke to my wife and between them decided I was going weather I liked it or not ! Gameday arrives I get bundled in to his car practically kicking and screaming I didn’t want to go (I sat silently in the car all the way like a petulant child!) we arrive at the site , There’s like 23-24 players there ? Youngest is the wrong side of 30 we all know each other either by “hi bud how’s it going ?” Or by name , so no strangers just all friends and acquaintances and we go on to have the best day ever ! I will be honest I don’t remember that much about the gameplay (give it up for pharmaceuticals!) but all I do know is that day stopped me on the crest of the “f**k it I’m out of here” hill , turned me around and sent me back down the hill to keep on playingsville . One thing I do vividly remember was the smiling faces and laughter in the safezone that day there were so few of us there we were all sat together down one end (its a big safezone split in to two sections) we were two different teams but we were all airsofters having fun together .

    Ive had one or two days recently that have made me want to not bother anymore. I'll tell you for why... Considering we are supposedly a big group of like minded people I don't think I've ever come across a bigger bunch of man babies, back stabbers and out and out arseholes in all my life inside and outside of work included. Now I'm not saying everyone is like that but the last two games I have been to I could have quite easily fucked it all off by lunch and gone home. I don't know whats happened to people but I've noticed a steady decline in the behavior of people recently and cant quite place my finger on what it is. One example... Guy takes off glasses in game area with someone shooting right next to him (I mean fully takes them off and is wiping them, I turn see it and say something along the lines of "mate, put your glasses back on do you want to lose an eye" Marshal is standing next to him doesn't bat an eyelid, glasses guy turns to me and says " what are you my mother, how about you fuck off" alright mate.. potentially lose the eye, doesn't affect my life but will affect yours. There seems to be an upsurge in snowflakey people making issues out of something so small that doesn't even warrant the reaction its given and again I cant quite figure out why. Go back 3/4 years ago there was still bickering and what have you but nowhere near as much shit flinging as there is now. Having said that I guess the only real reason I still play and will continue to do so is because of a solid bunch of guys that I get out with fairly often, only issue is we tend to stick to sites we know and know what to expect so I guess we play it safe to an extent so we know we are almost guaranteed a good game day.

    I've also just been incredibly irresponsible, and just bought a Carry handle. (I'd like to blame @rocketdogbert in advance for being my enabler 😄 ) ...an expensive carry handle. I've wanted this certain Carry handle for my PDR-C ever since seeing a gun in the owners group on Facebook that belongs to a chap in Denmark called Danger Dan. This is his gun with it on: Looks amazing. Really suits the PDR and finishes it off a treat. So... £93 later (!!!) I should have one arriving on Tuesday. I've paid less than that for actual guns! 😕

    NEW CQB Site in Kent

    Hi all. Cant give away to much at this stage but we are in final talks with the local government regarding a disused school in Kent. (There are alot of them as well!) Its 90% CQB with outdoor play/break areas with 4 Buldings 2/3 stories high and spread across 6 acres of land. We have secured exclusive use of this site for the next two years. Its currently being used as a Police training grounds for firearms officers and we have it for the weekends Friday - Sunday. Our aim will be to provide Friday night (night) games with a focus on small realistic slow paced action. Saturday games will be objective based games - these wont be every weekend. Sunday Skirmish and Objective based games. We've got bomb props. Fobbed door keycards. Blacked out rooms for pitch black rooms. Long corridors and over 150 rooms of all sizes. Here is a sneak picture. And as we're new to this any idea's criticism are more then welcome.

    Grazing shots

    All for it in fact my new rule will be unless they make 30 seconds of direct eye contact with me before shooting I won't take the hit as it was just a mistake they shot in my direction and didn't even mean to hit me and I bet they feel bad for accidentally shooting towards me. I've had shots go past my ear and you can tell it was close but it wasn't a hit as if it was I would of been tearing up.

    Simple answer is all sites should be using decent chronos not hobbyist ones like acetech and xcortech. The skan chronos that I like can be sent back for testing and re-certification and the new models have a self check. The cheap ones are ok for getting a rough estimate at home but not reliable enough for checking paying customers.

    Having been advised by the expert, @L3wisD, I tried Rit Dyemore, graphite. First, hot (simmering) water with a teaspoon of washing up liquid. Cook for half an hour. Suspended the frame as I wasn’t sure if the job would heat the pan so much it would melt the plastic. Half way through, looking good And, ladies and gentleman, I’d say that was a result The End......

    No that should be in place before you open. If your first few games run bad the stigma never leaves, airsofters are like elephants and I don't just mean being fat bastards.

    Airsoft is not my main passion. That has to go to long Coastal hikes. I am most of the way through completing the South West Coastal Path. Lots of nostalgia for me being from Bristol and holidaying in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset as a kid. its over 600 miles long and with enough ascent to climb Everest over 4 and a half times. This is my current progress chart. (The Brown is the Somerset Coastal path, which I have also completed. )

    Worst gun you've ever worked on

    If you ever have a problem with a springer shotgun, just throw it in the bin. Your time and sanity is worth more than the gun. It's like a plastic onion where every layer is user hatred.

    I see this from time to time when someone mentions that their Crye trousers are falling apart. Someone will shout that for £300 a pair they should last forever but that's missing the point. They're designed and made for people that have a specific requirement, one of which is not always longevity! When you have a quartermaster that will just issue you a new set when you rip the arse out from sliding down a hill you don't tend to be bothered about how much they cost!

    How about go back to your home site have a look around at what the other players are using , have a chat with them and then make your own mind up about what you want to buy ? time and time again new players go on to all of the Airsoft groups out there and ask “what am bestest gun?!”😲 and “tell me where to buy am bestest gun ?!” 🤦‍♂️ You are not going to find your answer on here (or any other forum) one mans perfect gun is another’s pile of shit ! And it’s the same with kit one player will tell you “xyz is the best Camo ever !” And the next guy will say “no it’s not ! It useless!” Your asking for a personal opinion on a subjective topic so you will NEVER get the right answer for you from someone else 😳 Here’s my point exactly , this chaps opinion is totally opposite to mine , I really like 8Fields kit (been using it for a couple of yrs now no problems at all) as to viper and bulldog ? Viper I would piss on if it was on fire and bulldog I think is grossly over priced Chinese knock off kit . polar opposite to each other but who’s right ? So put on your big boy trousers and make up your own mind , savvy ? And remember when asking for someone’s ‘opinion’ on anything , “an opinion is like an arsehole , everyone has one and there frequently full of shit !”

    Site Name: MPA Hockley Airsoft Arena Contact details: 01702 202318 Website Address: https://www.mpa-airsoft.co.uk Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/hockleyairsoftarena Site Address: 7 Eldon Way, Hockley, Essex, SS5 4AD Having looked at the weather (11/08/2019) where birds couldn't fly straight in such wind. I decided to pop down to a site that I have been trying and failing to get to. Mostly due to the stringent requirements set by the site (Soft soled footwear, No mesh goggles, no shooting glasses, must be full seal goggles, low FPS Limit, no gas shotguns)! I took a bus to TFL rail, then a National Rail to Hockley station. A quick 10 minute walk and I am climbing the stairs to the arena. Previous online reviews have been mixed, where beginners or people looking for a one off experience would give 5 stars, yet experienced airsofters would question it being a "real" airsoft site. This is an extremely small indoor CQB death bowl. It is situated on the 1st floor of a warehouse. The MPA shop adjoins the arena. The arena is based on a run down hotel floor, the target range next to it which is used for Practical pistol events was also opened up to add some extra space and variety. Effectively 9-10 rooms with corridors surrounding them. There is no elevation to speak of, obviously no water features. All solid underfoot. Very short engagement distances and Fast paced. Semi only throughout the night. The site was close to capacity with over 20 players tonight. Good: Marshalling: Marshalling was of a good standard if chaotic standard. Herding the mostly brash young clientele round would test my patience. But they achieved it pretty well! The safety brief was brief and covered everything you needed to know. Mission briefs were for the most part quite clear. Good Value: £20 is a pretty good price for a Skirmish of anyone's money. Multiple Available Days!!: One of the only sites I know around in the SE that offer regular games on Thursday(£15)/Friday(£15)/Saturday and Sunday (£20) nights. They also run special holiday games during lunchtimes for two hours at a low price of £10. Chrono: A mandatory inflexible Chrono was in play. The FPS limit is a VERY low 294 FPS so be warned! I actually agree with this low rating being needed due to the average short range. Any more is just asking for trouble. Quite a few people failed the chrono with gas pistols and weren't allowed to use their side arms for the night. Shop: The shop was open pretty much all night. Its an actual retail premises, with 30+ Rifs, rifles, sniper rifles, pistols, all the batteries, loads of spare parts, protection, bbs, gas, large collect of sights. I was bloody tempted to buy something. Not the worst prices in the world either. This site clearly gets the best shop award. Then again is it more of a shop with a site attached then the other way around? Turnaround: Was very quick. You are signed up for 4 hours, you pretty much got 4 hours. 10 minutes breaks occasionally, which are absolutely appreciated, but then you go straight back in. Game modes: Kudos to the staff here. For such a small site, they really have thought about the game modes, incredibly varied. Not all of them worked 100% but it was a damn fine effort. Straight Skirmish, Escorting, Capturing objects and a fun if confusing railroad game where parts of the floor were effectively lava etc. Average: Safe Zone(s): Like the rest of the site it was indoors. With some fans blowing already warm air around. Everyone got a bit of table space. It was about what I expected. Playing area: I was on the fence about putting this in the bad section... It is what it is and was totally expecting what I eventually played in. However it really wasn't that bad. There were fans in place to try and combat the humidity. The rooms, whilst basic were somewhat furnished and provided cover. There were various pallets around to use. Not much in the way of flanking opportunities. Despite the extremely small size (Think 3/5ths the size of Bunker 51), they use the space to the best of their ability. I didn't feel as limited as I thought I would be. Hit taking: Hit taking was mostly good. Lots of 50:50s where anyone could have been shot first but both had to take it. A bit frustrating at times but is par for the course. Clientele: Very much on the young side. The youngest being very respectful kids. The teenagers talking during the safety brief a bit too much and the older people like myself just along for the ride. Everyone's just their for a good time. Really helps to have lightning fast reactions though. I definitely felt my age! Food: Nothing cooked that I could see, but they had the most wonderful fresh made milkshakes on site! It was thick and better then I have had at most restaurants. Only £2 for a very large one as well. Large selection of drinks and sweets available. Bad: Errr… Surprisingly none... I broke my Phone on the day? Conclusion: This was a bit of a surprise. I thought I was going be putting in loads of negatives. Hockley is a bit of a weird one. It caters more to casual or first time airsofters, but they also have a fair few hardcores that go in day in and day out. Its a site that also runs practical pistol/target practice nights. There were things that almost made the bad section, but something was always stopping it from going in. If you are young and fit, I would totally recommend Hockley, especially if you are local. If you are old and a wreck like myself. Maybe just give it a go once and sign up for the Practical Pistol events thereafter. Despite the low FPS limits, I completely understand why they enforce it. I came out smarting a bit, but not as much as I do at Bunker 51 which has longer engagement distances but higher limit. There is a genuine community feel here. Something I haven't really got from other airsoft sites. There are leader boards on the walls, lots of first names being bandied about. So would I go back?.... Eh... It was a good night, but its a bit too far out of my way and not being a fan of CQB means probably not. This is not the sites fault though! Bullpup Watch: Just my Aug tonight... Very little beyond M4's actually!

    The worst thing about airsofting is all the airsofters moaning about airsofting. I generally have a good day, and all it takes is for people to simply play airsoft. When someone does kick off, I recommend just laughing it off and walking away. You can't fix stupid. If it helps, just picture them like...

    The thing that made it fishy was that both accounts were conversing with identical grammar styles within minutes of each other... At like, 2am. If he had maybe typed in a different style, or left it longer than 8 minutes to reply to this off-the-cuff customer in the wee hours I might not have twigged and he'd have gotten away with it.
