    Fear Masters Wakefield

    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.

    Pistol problems....

    It might be worth asking @rocketdogbert if he'd mind having a look at them for you. Offer him some money to spend on Vector parts and he'll be like putty in your hands

    I dont think you'll be able to make it lighter and still be able to shoot. a raider is 2kg according the web, its full plastic already, so im sure it must be one of the lightest m4's on the market.. you can try to remove the buttstock and get a smaller handguard? just looked up a smaller sized mp7 weight which is also 1.9kg. my metal m4 is about 2.6kg for comparison.

    Not going to lie... the gear whore in my literally just exploded. Although I hate magpuls like that... I've been toying with the idea of finding a way to mod ranger plates to work so i can still fill gas but keep the original baseplate as well

    We do not have ‘operators’ in her majesty’s armed forces (we leave those titles for the uncouth Americans) , we have swimmer canoeists in the SBS and troopers in the SAS ! Philistine !

    After giving my ASG a thorough lubing, particularly along the slide arms that run from the pump handle back to the spring, it is a good bit slicker. Without a stock, it's your trigger arm that takes the strain, not the pump hand as you might expect. I'd stress the importance of cocking it in a single committed motion: tug on it like you mean it.

    Huh, after my membership receipt (just about a year ago) I never heard anything from them again. I've followed them on Facebook, which seems to cover all the releases on ukapu.org.uk anyway.

    Getting back into the sport

    Game Cam, to be honest, that’s how we used to do it, one of us would always ensure our UKARA was in order and we’d get stuff delivered to whoever had the most recent application as none of us ever knew who was registered and who wasn’t. I remember buying at Wolf in Camden and the guy wasn’t exactly happy about it, hence why I was wondering why no-one had launched a true membership scheme that’s managed by the player over the site/shops - The BAC seem to have the right idea, but as Rogerborg pointed out, it’s about trust I suppose, although I’m not sure how the £300 shop fee for UKARA outlets inspires trust, so there must be something in the background. I believe they have interests in a few of the larger retailers. Zero1 comes to mind. I’ve shot an email over to UKAPU to see where they are at and if they’d be interested in having a coder develop something a bit more of an open framework. Thanks Keldon - I used to play the odd game at TechBrigade but if there’s something on my doorstep that’s not too commercial, then I’m all in so will take a look.

    Testing BBs

    Some people did not have the program to open the XLS so have done the above. As you can see nothing touches the G&G BBs for roundness or polish. I am going to have a lot of new BBs to test shortly & update, but have just purchased a bulk order of Proballs from Socom Tactical to use in my guns. I would buy G&G if cost was not an issue.

    In 20 years of painting professionally this has been my favorite. She's a keeper. Just need to convince the wife to let me keep it on the mantlepiece
