    The GBBR Thread

    I'm loving how this has turned out, really picked up right off the bat, it's great! Might simplify my L85 review and think about doing a second video covering the more general GBBR questions, might as well get a bit more mileage out of the topic with video view counts and such, especially since most people won't have the attention span for a video the length it would take to cover all these interesting questions in an acceptable level of detail as well as a specific rifle review. I really hate skimping out on the finer points for the sake of keeping stuff concise. Anyway though, I'll try to give...

    As of the new year, I've now been a gas rifle user for a year, since I bought my WE L85 as a late Christmas present to myself last year. I think I got it on the 4th... So my ikkle baby is a year and 4 days old *wipes away a single tear* Anyway though, I'm going to be filming a review of it over the next few days. I did an unboxing video when I got it, with my first impressions and a firing test, so this is going to be a follow up review, with all my experiences, good and bad, of having it for a year....

    I use milspec but Ed doesn't after having issues with the guy who runs it. Assuming Eds story is true (and he has no reason to lie, and I think we all agree he's a good guy) then I think his reason not to use milspec is fair game. I'd recommend them as I've not personally had issues.

    My Loadout

    Well folks, its nothing to impressive, but here is the first pics of my loadout. I have always liked the way that our old Canadian Forces Olive Drabs BDU's looked. Our military has since converted to the Cadpat, unless you're enlisted in the Navy, then you are issued Navy gear, but our RCAF and Army folks are issued the "Relish Camo" aka Cadpat, which I think looks nice now that its grown on me, but that OD just looked great. Anyway, here is my loadout, with a mix of Old School with New School, a nod to way we once were, mixed with a bit of today. Armed with Russian...

    Played pistols all day for the first time after mostly using ARs for years, had a little joke with my brother about it. But I'll post it on zero-in without explaining that and see if anyone of the weirdos on there bite.

    Probably cause a lot of debate, but if new I'd go for a GHK - I believe their early ones could be a little iffy, but they've built up a great reputation since then.

    Here's some of my thoughts - as another GBBR owner/wielder/fan. I clean mine after every day of play - really just a habit I've developed, but it will help in the long run. TBH it's simple and quick, plus it's not like having to service the motor on an AEG every so often or replacing a worn out piston. GBBRs are easy to work on - which is a good thing if you're me. Gas wise - I use propane during the day, but between games replace it with green gas or maintenance green gas so the seals remain lubed. When sorting you don;t need to keep the mags full...

    The absolute minimum you have to do to get started, is simply turn up at a skirmish site, put your name and address down and sign a waiver form for their insurance (this is so if you get a tooth shot out or whatever, they aren't to blame). Pay them the fee to play and off you go. Take some ID with you, to prove you are who you say you are, preferably with a photo on it, since some places will ask for it. Typically, new players do that and then hire the gear when at the site for three or four games and then buy their own gear...

    Osprey is wank though, certainly if I were getting shot at with real bullets the coverage it provides would be welcome but for airsoft it's just not all that good an option. CKinnerley's suggestion for the tactical tailor plate carrier is right on the money, I had no idea they made a basic plate carrier for that little money. Nothing you'll be able to get from China will come close tactical tailor in quality.

    Not surprised. Norton has got to be one of the biggest scam companies ever. When they're not writing bogus virus alert 'updates' into their software to keep you in panic mode so you renew your subscription to them, they're busy thinking of new ways of tying up your computer's system RAM with that appallingly badly optimised piece of bloated glorified malware.

    Actually, I think that M4 looks pretty cool in two tone. Most US troops during the Vietnam War probably would have given anything to have been issued an M16 with that colour scheme, because quite a lot of them got hold of green pvc/duct tape and made their M16s look exactly like yours. Although to be fair, a lot of that tape on their M16s was to stop the thing rattling and falling apart, since the first M16s weren't exactly built like tanks, but, you can find a lot of pics of M16s, AR15s, M4 etc looking a lot like yours, so if anyone doesn't like it or think it...

    I custom made it by cutting the end off one, and the top of another, welding the two together, stretching the follower spring, sanding the weld, then repainting. Worked amazing well and gave me the ability to A: put more gas in and B: load 39 bb's in.

    Hey there everybody. I was always interested in having a go in a proper airsoft skirmish and I went to one or two back in my fatherland (Poland) but I couldn't afford any of the gear then. Now when I can, I happen to live on your beautiful island and rules on ASG aren't really clear to me. What I'm used to is: get whatever gun you want and go shoot your friends with it wherever you want as long as there's no people there and just don't poke anybody's eye out with a bb... I found that it's a bit strict around here... SO! I gathered that I can't...

    Hey all, Been playing Airsoft for about a year now, thought it about time to join a forum and get connected. First time at my local field and i though it was good, got to know some guys and I've fallen in love with the sport. So far my loadout it based for protection (BB on bare skin in CQB is NOT nice). First gun was my G36C, compact easy to use highly upgradeable a very convenient for my setup. My main pride and joy is my head gear. Fast helmet with facemask attacked to the side clips and goggles underneath for a supreme fit. All my gear is tried...

    A lot of places are now starting to sell GHK, though how much they know to be able to assist/support is a different matter. Proairsoftsupplies are selling them and possibly other GBBRs - Jez from there is a long term GBBR user - only GBBR stuff I've bought in this country though has been from Milspec (bought my G5 in HK and brought it back with me, extra mags from Samoon). On Milspec Solutions - I've heard similar tales from else where - I agree it does sound like Iain has some anger management issues.

    Cheers for the answers Ed and Mr B. One more whilst I remember - Who is a good retailer for GBBRs? I know a lot of places stock them, but is there a place with better prices/customer service/variety for people to look at ? I remember you (Ed) having a bad customer service experience with the place you bought your l85 from I believe.

    You could buy a 'two-tone' bright coloured gun and then you need to skirmish three times within a year (but, you can't do all three in under 2 months or something like that) You can also rent at the skirmish so you don't need to buy a gun first. Once you have a UKARA defence you could always order from Europe since AEGs are cheaper, I have ordered from Poland before (from TaiwanGun) and also seen Gunfire.pl We usually ask them to write our UKARA number on the box so customs can see it is okay but they don't always do it.

    http://www.tactical-kit.co.uk/tactical-tailor-plate-carrier-modular-22001-7050-p.asp Real deal quality (far and away above most of the chinese made airsoft kit), £25 under budget. If you really need the extra capacity you can add side panels later on down the line.

    For less than a hundred quid you'll be hard pressed to find something 'decent', there is serviceable stuff to be had in that price bracket though. I bought one of the carriers chock linked when I first started, my advice is to avoid like the plague. They're beyond garbage, wonky molle, loose stitching, shiny nylon, adjustment holes are just circles burned into the straps. TMC and Flyye do some really quite nicely made stuff for a reasonable budget. I'd look into 6094 style carriers as they're fairly ubiquitous and easy to adjust without complete disassembly. Flyye make a very nice 6094, the TMC 6094 slick with assault panel is also...

    Not really saying it's definitely an AR15 to be honest, that's really just what I tend to call Armalites which have the more later non-tapered grip we typically see on more recent various, since that grip started showing up around the same time that Colt started selling the M16 as a semi-automatic only civilian rifle, which they marketed as the AR15. So it's more a case of 'what i call them' rather than being a correct designation! You're right too, that is woodland he's got on. As far as where I found it, it was just a search on the internet, although I'm pretty sure that it is reproduced in...

    They are a little bit more expensive than AEGs because the cost of gassing up a lot of mags, which typically only hold thirty-odd rounds each (for an assault weapon that is), when compared to the cost of a charging your AEG's battery, which might enable you to cheerfully fire off high cap mags all day long, is not equal. Then of course there is certainly a little more time to be spent lubricating and cleaning the working parts of a GBB if one hopes to keep it working smoothly, as opposed to an AEG, which could literally go for weeks without so much as a wipe with a damp...

    Painting Airsoft Guns

    Yes it would be an IF and no longer a RIF if you painted it that way, but you should be aware that - assuming you are going to use it for airsofting, or historical re-enactments, or in a movie or a play you are producing, etc - then it absolutely is not illegal to own a RIF, even if it looks like the most unbelievably realistic gun ever, providing you can demonstrably prove you have an entirely peaceful reason for wanting to possess such a thing. It only becomes illegal if you to do something stupid and antisocial with one, such as holding up a bank with it, or...

    objectives and props in scenarios

    Skirmish CQB and Skirmish The Stan allow 350 +5% = 368FPS, but no full auto indoors. I think it's fine, but then again I always wear a mesh 1/2 face mask... It makes sense for their customers who have their guns set up for the woodland site to be able to use them without modification at their other sites.

    ^^The way to stop that is to make the regen far enough away that it takes a fair while to get back. I think briefings could be paired down and be at least as effective, if not more so, if the marshals were more serious about it - there's no need for any light heartedness or humour - it's for safety and the rules which allow the games to be fun: if people can't be serious for 5 mins listening to it, they should fuck off. IMO marshals should shush people who talk during briefings... with extreme prejudice. But many people do have a short attention span. Keeping anything specific...
