    Talk me out of it? (New gun)

    Since I started playing airsoft away last year, I've had a bit of a lust for a Winchester Mare's Leg (as used by the lovely Zoë in Firefly/Serenity). I've found out that there are two versions of this gun available for airsoft. The KTW is a springer, shoots around 220fps and has a ~15 round mag, which you can apparently get more of for quick reloading. This is normally made of wood effect plastic and metal. Although I think you can sometimes buy it with a wood kit. The other is from A&K and is gas powered. all metal and wood. Shoots around 330-360 on green gas apparently. Has an internal mag which holds ~20 bbs. Comes with a "special loading tool" to refill the mag, but I suspect a speed loader will do the job too(?) So, anyone got one? Had a shot of one? Thoughts? I like them both, although would prefer one with real wood. The lack of sights doesn't bother me, I mostly shoot by eye as it is. I'd probably use it indoors most of the time (in buildings at local outdoor site, at The Depot etc) but possibly for short range outside games too, using it as a primary with my mk23 as a back up! To my knowledge I've not shot any KTW or A&K guns, what are peoples thoughts on them as manufacturers? Does one have any better quality control than the other? The A&K is currently in stock in a few places (after being out of stock for months). The KTW I can't see in stock anywhere, but have pinged off a few emails to see about availability. I was trying to hold of buying any more guns this year, as I'm trying to save for a house. But... well... it's only money isn't it?

    To be fair I invested a good 20 minutes talking you into it in the kitchen just now, plus easily the same by text earlier. I think I did good... I sure as hell don't have any regrets!

    Testing BBs

    OK so this is the latest BB testing update. Sorry that the BBs tested are all Proball thanks to Lewis from Socom Tactical for the samples. The normal Proballs get darker as they increase in weight and seemingly harder to shatter. The Proball Bio BBs are whiter for the same weight but shatter easier and into slightly smaller pieces but not as many or as small as the Nuprol BBs. The slight out of roundness I am sure is from the sheer marks from the injection process which leaves a pin prick crater I have to use a strong magnifier glass to see. Need other brave manufacturers to send me their BBs for testing or have you been scared off for fear of not doing well... [individual scores = 10 is the best and 1 is the worst]

    Went along to their open day yesterday (12th August 2018) and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Haven’t been to a site for 15 years as only just getting back into Airsoft but thought I’d offer my opinion; booking again so will be able to further add to the review. There were about 40 players which I thought was a good turn out for a random and usual open day - not sure if that’s typical? Really well equipped site and great facilities. Best toilets I’ve ever seen at a venue, good shop, plenty of kit to purchase, some hot food (microwave stuff) available for purchase and plenty of places to store kit in the dry. They also utilise a quad and trailor to transport your kit about should you need it. As I’m only just getting back into airsoft I hired an AEG which was a Nuprol G36 - all of them were well maintained and looked after. I got a jam and they couldn’t swap me the gun quick enough so I could get straight back into the fray. That brings me then onto the staff - very professional, very very approachable and friendly and extremely safety conscious. I would actually say a little too safety conscious and the constant reminders to clear guns, put all weapons on floor and then brief for each game, followed by more safety reminders was a little too much and ate into possible game time but would rather have them that way than the opposite I suppose! Just feel a bit quicker turnarounds would have resulted in about 30mins more gameplay. The games themselves were were pretty good, they’ve obviously put a lot of thought into a few of them and a lot of them I imagine to be adaptable so you could go a few times in a year and play different games. There are ALOT of things to hide behind and work your way through and this created plenty of opportunities to hold down a section to then get caught at a different angle making games quite filled with anticipation by not knowing where going to be attacked from. There are also a few fairly unique features such as ‘The Trench’ and a building that is PITCH black and very confined - this was a particular scary moment especially considering I’ve not taken a BB for years, never mind one that I couldn’t see from 4 yards! This is also sort of the site’s downfall - there are a few too many fortifications and whatnot to hide behind which made it a bit more paintball like stand and shoot, hide, stand and shoot - taking a few of these out and creating a bit more space would allow more chance to have to move and press attacks - with there been so much that obscured your view but protect you it meant that both sides effectively dug in and just kept shooting - it wasn’t worth making an attempt to move forward as it often came down to who had the most/best sort of cover. Highly recommend this site, especially if there’s a group of you as a cohesive unit could really get some fire and movement manoeuvres in and there’s lots of elements to test yourselves in. Pros: excellent staff safety facilities organised Good shop and things available to buy Cons slow turnarounds too much cover Again really enjoyed it and recommended - will have more to compare it to in the next 2 months.

    The trick worked. Purchased my first RIF and some accessories from there on Sunday night. Was told to make some changes by a friend on Monday morning at which point I phoned them up and made some changes including a deans connection and the whole order was then delivered Tuesday morning. Great service and would highly recommend.

    Ah, I'd just found that. Well, a gentleman never takes advantage of a lady - especially when he's stone broke at the moment. I reckon I'd have to fight my way through the crowd. It might not be hugely practical, but it's a thing of beauty.

    I’d get a series of guns custom designed and built to be shell ejecting. They would be as close as possible to form and function of real steel. Vectors, Glocks, M4s, AK’s. Basically anything. As money is no object, I’d ensure the guns were affordable, shells cheap enough to be disposable, oh what a laugh it would be, being knee deep in M249 shells 😂😂

    Fast pistol mag changes

    I had the chance to run twins on Tuesday night - and had a new mag holder to try it with... I got the F series Nuprol mag pouch, which holds them nice and tight, so they don't fall out, but not that tight I can't get at them. After a little experimentation, I found that having it just off horizontal worked best. For next time, I'm going to get another and run one on either side, but holding only one mag in each. That way I can stow the empty, then pull the full one easily. The only error I have made is that the CZ isn't properly ambi. Which makes things a little tricky. But with practice, I think I should get some pretty slick mag changes 😄

    I'm dabbling with it. I'm fine with sewing leather, but when it comes to putting snaps and rivets on I end up getting too confused/making a mess. Molding is also difficult as I've not made a press yet... but making a little "cup" for the end of the barrel to sit in is doable for me just now.

    I had a KTW shotgun years ago. It was plasticy and not too good performance wise. A&K all the way for me.

    I found a few reviews of the mares leg that mentioned this about the full sized A&K rifle. All the reviews have said the Mare's leg version seems to not be plagued by leaks, so long as you are careful about keeping some gas in it. They better not have only one left.... But https://extremeairsoft.co.uk/shop/assault-rifles/gas-gbb-rifles/winchester-1873-ak-stubby-rifle/ have it in stock apparently. If I do get it, I'll bring it to the depot next time I'm there. You're welcome to have a shot if you are around.

    The only reason I'd give is that you might buy the last one, then I wouldn't be able to get it. If they're anywhere close in price then I'd go for the A&K every time. Just out of interest, who has it in stock?

    @Arwen in that case, I say go for it! I use ‘normal’ GBBR’s and getting a kill with one is much more satisfying than with an AEG, so getting kills with that will feel great. It’s properly cool too, I’ve only ever seen 2 in a few years of playing. The good thing about the gas one is you could run it on abbey 144 in the summer if needs be to keep it below the limits, and if you wanted to use it in December, just throw some green gas/ propane in it and it will chug along all winter too. Because the action is cycled manually, all of the gas goes to shooting the B.B. so it should be nice and efficient like the mk23

    I was just typing ‘throw the bb’s away’ when I read the other comments lol. The only other time I’ve seen the mk23 jam is when people half pull the trigger so it loads a BB, release, then pull again to fire. I wouldnt worry about red gas. I run all my pistols on propane which is just as strong or maybe stronger. Even a plastic slide Tm g18c that I bought off Rocket. Had a few thousand BB’s through it and still going strong.

    Have you looked at Taiwan Gun ? Those three are between £20-30 cheaper so even factoring the P&P from Poland you could still get the gatt AND a good few magazines for the same price as the gun on its own from Patrolbase .👍

    Testing BBs

    I am sure any tests you could do will just help prove my results, the more testing the more accurate. FPS has a big bearing on the fragmentation even the type of mesh size of contact and mass the variables are endless. I will just test the same as I have done with all the BBs I can get to get a comparison on a level playing field.
