    Patches are now available(ish)

    Paid up the duty and will be delivered tomorrow. Will attempt to have them dispatched tomorrow too (depends when PF turn up). First class for the preorders so you're not waiting an extra day than is necessary. Appreciate all the patience.

    There is no such thing as a medium/long range gun. All AEG's should be capable of flinging a BB to the maximum range provided the fps is right. Barrel length and cylinder volume is irrelevant. You have 1.13 joules of energy regardless, So all bb's that exit the barrel have the same energy and the same distance potential. @Rogerborg is absolutely correct when he says the raider can perform. Because any gun can. If you want a new gun cool, But personally I'd tweak the existing one first. The trick is consistency, and accuracy. Neither are variables that can be pinned on one component, rather they come with a combination of the gun as a whole. To get consistency, you need a gearbox without leaks, and a barrel that is correct for the cylinder volume. The hop unit, bucking and airseal nozzle also need to be as good a match as possible. To get accuracy you need a well finished, straight barrel, that is running a consistent hop unit with a decent bucking. Barrel length - irrelevant, Cnc hop units - irrelevant. With that in mind any aeg can be made to meet your criteria. The truth of the matter is to get those things that are important you have to build it yourself. There is no out of the box perfect solution. A bog standard JG with a little spent on it can out perform guns that cost far far more, and there is nothing more satisfying. For any M4 platform - Upgrade the hop unit to a rotary style, Put in a half decent inner barrel like a zci 6.02. Stick in a decent bucking maple leaf, laylax ect. Then sort the airseal nozzle, and gearbox airseals (piston head, cylinder head). Total spent less than £50. Do it right and you will have a gun that hits maximum range and does it reliably on target. Rate of fire is as easy as a motor change. A 35K rpm motor on a good 7.4v lipo will produce 25ish rps. Anything more than that you have to start messing with the gearbox. Picking up a specific brand gun, or expecting one out of the box solution to be better than another is like splitting hairs. You might get a great gun, or you might get one that has one minor fault not picked up on in QC that means it can't perform. Either way if you are buying a gun solely for how it performs out of the box, then you will never get what you want without spending silly money. Personally you couldn't give me a gun with an ETU. The wildhog and the Ares both have trigger systems that are prone to failure. And when they fail they cost a small fortune to replace (because no one is going to repair an ETU). Basic contacts in comparison will take any battery without complaint, and with a protection mosfet they should last for many many years. If you can't tech, then learn to do it. For £45 you can buy a complete gearbox from AK2M4. Use it like a practice tool. Shim it, strip it, rewire it, Correct the airseals. Then once you are confident make the Raider into a monster. https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/gearboxes-complete/ec-complete-gearbox-qd-v2-rear Rotary hop unit https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/hopups-rubbers/zci-prowin-style-hopup-chamber-plastic-m4 Good bucking. https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/hopups-rubbers/maple-leaf-macaron-50-aeg Nub for bucking. https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/hopups-rubbers/maple-leaf-nub ZCI inner barrels. https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/inner-barrels Air nozzle. https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/air-nozzles/ra-m4-aluminium-nozzle

    No Possession / ownership is not subject to the VCRA There isn’t a licence, it’s proof of a ‘defence’ as defined by the VCRA and is protection for the seller

    Hi everyone, I’m new to airsoft and so far haven’t been to a skirmish. I’m hoping to book a morning game shortly at The Grange in Coventry to see how I get on, I love the idea of it as a hobby though If anyone could give me an idea of what the place is like, it would be greatly appreciated. I found some reviews online but mostly old ones. I have rheumatoid arthritis in my ankle so I’m a bit worried about the terrain. Also a little nervous because none of my friends are interested in this, so not only a newbie but a lone one too!! I have a WE two-tone G17 gbb pistol which I’m assuming is ok to take with me when I go? I read up on the laws before buying the pistol but the one thing I’m concerned about it travelling with it. I have a pistol case which I was going to put in the boot of the car, is this ok to do without a defence? I will have to hire an assault rifle and I wondered if anyone knew what types they have to hire at The Grange? I’m going to try and buy a bit of camo, face guard etc before going too. Any info or help you can give would be great. Thank you Sorry for for such a long first post!

    CQB Pain

    As long as I'm masked up ,gloves ,something to cover my neck and trousers obviously I'm good. I've gone all John McClain a few times when it's warm as I'd rather the pain than over heating. Even when it's cold I try keep it minimal including my rig as I prefer to feel hits. Tried PCs and not for me.

    The Grange is a good site. It's the one I use for my UKARA membership. The site is woodland with a few fence buildings. In summer it can be classed as dense woodland with engagement ranges significantly dropping. In winter the site opens up a little and the ranges increase with that. Camoflage works well at the site, but there is no shame in turning up in jeans and a jumper. The site isn't snobby at all in regards to gear. You must wear boots, they must have good grip. Waterproof is a bonus as some of the site can hold water. 2 tone guns are fine. The Marshall team is fantastic, They will make you feel welcome, and make sure you know what you are doing. Listen to them, and follow the few rules they have and you will have no problems. They will insist on banter, but frown on swearing and hit calling. Games are normally short 30-60minutes with teams rotating. You will get a lot of games in. They have a very fast re-spawn system and aim to keep you playing. It also means if you get a hit you take it and just come back into the game from the re-spawn point. Sitting out because you are dead will not happen at this site. The Marshalls will pick games depending on team sizes, and how knackered you all look The Hire guns are plastic Cyma AK's. Any issues just ask a marshall and they will look at it for you. Same with the batteries if you think yours is going flat just ask. Full face mask, overalls, spare magazine and BB's are provided. Extra BB's are about £10 for 3000. They have a shop with some basic parts, BB's and normally a few nice guns for sale. Eye pro is normally in stock as well. The safe zone is a no fire zone. Mag's out, Guns on safe. No testing the gun in the safe zone. If you shoot even without a mag in they will kick your ass and may even remove you from the site. If you want to test shoot go through into the game area through the safe zone. Once in the game area you can shoot to your hearts content, just make the gun safe before you come back inside. If there is no marshall on hand to check you are safe stick your head in the door and call one of them. Eye pro must be worn at all times in the game area, even if you just stick your head out to look. When you come back into the safe zone after play a Marshall will inspect your gun, they will want to see the mag out, and the gun discharged in a safe location, then put on safe. Don't be alarmed by this everyone does it, Once the gun is safe it's best to put it down and not play with it until the next game. Coffee and tea is free all day. A small lunch is provided if you are playing all day, for free. There is a selection of snacks (not free), and cold drinks (not free) Pyro and BB's can be bought in the safe zone. Toilets and showers on site. One of the regulars has mobility problems as well. Tell the marshalls they will tell you the best routes to take to keep a sure footing. Personally I never run I'm too lazy, and I always find myself in the action without a problem.

    Transporting it is covered under Firearms Act 1968 S19 rather than VCRA, and you need "a reasonable excuse (the proof whereof lies on [you])". Having a UKARA number is neither nor there, that's a defence for the seller at the point of sale. If being on your way to or from (or at) an organised airsoft skirmish isn't a reasonable excuse, then we're all in big trouble. I like to ensure that I have "proof" to hand, even if it's just a "going to event" on Facebook. But just be clear about exactly where you're going and I can't see you having any trouble in the very unlikely event that you come to the notice of the State. I'd definitely recommend giving airsoft a try, it's ace. You will want solid boots with good ankle support, but plenty of folk play a walking game: just ignore Sergeant McShouty yelling at you to move up (usually from 30 feet behind you). Long term, you may want to consider running a support weapon, sniper or DMR so that you can camp out a bit rather than running-and-gunning, but you should be able to find something that suits.

    Hi Welcome to the forum. Your defence is you are going to a skirmish. As long as you keep it covered you are fine. Face guard is a good idea. Don't invest too much in camo until you are sure what you like. Lots of people turn up in civvies for there first skirmish. You can then see what others wear and choose what you like. Cheers G

    Played saturday using the G&G. Cracking rounds, no issues aside a slightly weak mag spring on one of my heavyweight mags; hardly the BBs fault, the other 7 mags were fine. Really pleased with the performance and had a great day. Cheers again for your help!

    Depends what style of gun you want. If you want a SMG I would highly recommend the g&g top tech UMG. The hop unit is great and the range and accuracy is amazing. It is by far the best standard gun I have come across in terms of effective range. ASG Scorpion evo is another great out of the box gun. CYMA make great AKs. It's not sniper accurate but solid none the less. I wouldn't recommend fiddling with your own gun unless you have another one to use if you can't get it working just right, except maybe getting a new hop chamber, bucking, nub, and barrel. Then you can put it all together and replace the standard one without dismantling it. Then if it doesn't perform right put the stock one back in. I recently finished turning my raider L into a DMR. It was a great learning process and I could have done it much cheapernifbi had listens to advice on here. Ibwould recommend learning but only when you have a backup gun. So you can see whats possible here's My cm16. Pretty much all that remains is the reciever gearbox casing and outer barrel. (Modified to fit in the handguard)

    Opinions/help on a sniping setup

    I hope this isn't redundant information at this point, but I've just spotted that TaiwanGun are now selling 680mAh plug-and-play AEP lipo batteries at £11 a go. Realistically, 1 of those will last you a whole day as a secondary, and likely even as a CQB semi-auto primary. http://www.taiwangun.com/en/batteries-li-po/battery-li-po-680mah-7-4v-20c-micro-ipower

    Have you considered a G&G CM16 Raider L? By which I mean: what is it specifically about your Raider that you want to improve? It should be shooting reliably at about 350fps already with fair accuracy, so the cheapest way to shoot more BBs in less time would be to throw a high speed motor and and Deans wiring to a high C lipo into your current gun. Likewise, if the accuracy isn't all you'd want, changing the hop rubber / nub / barrel / hop unit would run you less than a new gun. If it's under 350fps, then sort the air seal for pennies, or replace the spring for under £10. If you just want another gun, that's absolutely fine (my name is Rogerborg and I am an airsoft purchasing addict...) but what is it that you want in one that's distinct from what you already have?

    Just a quick appreciation post. Ordered some toy gun ammo from these guys. Still hadn’t turned up 10 days later so gave a email, within 15 minutes had a reply and information that was requested. Looks as though a courier fuckity uppity, go figure. But the speed and professionalism from this company really impressed me. May have been a rocky start but a life long customer (As long as the bb’s feed ok when they turn up 😢). Keep doing what you doing guys!

    Hate it with a passion.

    Nothing especially wrong with it but.... If everyone on site wants to chrono every gun they have with them the time it takes, takes away from starting games on time etc etc. Every gun we chrono gets a coloured cable tie so if a gun comes out in the field (which we check before entering the playing area) without a tie you'd be asked to go back and get a gun that does have a tie, or to get it chrono'd Generally I just think its a bit selfish to bring anything more than two guns up to the chrono as if there are 90 other people that need to check their weapons then like I've said it also takes time away from them guess it just goes back to player ethics more than anything for me. I've never taken more than two guns to a site and I struggle to understand why people turn up with anything more than three!

    Again, not a gun per say but.... When a player turns up at Chrono with an armory worth of weapons even after being told that they should only be chrono'ing what they intend to use that day... "oh but I'm going to use all of these so you have to Chrono them"

    A full set of DDPM, including the Osprey Mk3 and Mk6 cover. Haven't used it once. I mean who'd have guessed desert camo in a woodland environment wouldn't blend well? Honestly I just bought it because I liked the pattern. Hell, maybe I should plan a trip to California and get some use out of it whilst I'm there.

    +1 to that. Get enough bloody nagging at home. “Take the bins out” , “go to work” or “stop shooting my knickers with your BB gun”. Like it’s my fault my gun gets nearer to them than I do. 🤣
