    THE TM MWS thread

    Just picked mine up today! Blown away by the operation. Quality is outstanding and I’m not disappointed in the slightest. Question: what adapters are you using for speed loaders? Cause stuff using the tube and rod in the field!

    Buying abroad.

    Attempting to buy a RIF inside the UK without a defence is not an offence for the buyer [UPDATE - if they're at least 18 years old]. Worst case, the seller just declines to take your money. Attempting to import a RIF into the UK is an offence. The RIF will also be seized under CEMA S49. This is about as daft an ideas as it's possible to have.

    I highly doubt any manufacturer is going to cover a sight getting shot out under warranty!

    Buying abroad.

    No - the law doesn’t specify UKARA. The law requires you to have a ‘defence’ under the VCRA By importing the onus is upon you to demonstrate your defence and UKARA is the most recognised defence for airsoft When you buy in the UK it’s the sellers responsibility to ensure that they are selling to someone with a defence Have a rethink about buying abroad and importing to get around the law by rephrasing to : Is there any legal way that I'm able to travel to country's which don't have the laws we do, buy a firearm and bring it back to the UK without having a FAC? Because this would be a good way to get a firearm without a FAC

    I wouldn't have either of those TBF. For a 1x red dot I use a walther ps22. They run at about £90, but I was given mine. I wouldn't pay that for airsoft. I would look for a china part clone. You can grab a 1x red dot with cantilever mount for under £20. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Red-Green-Dot-Tactical-Reflex-Sight-4-MOA-with-Rail-Mount/113370067479?hash=item1a6561f217:g:ByMAAOSwrpJb6n-~:rk:2:pf:0 The most important thing with an airsoft scope is the magnification. The standard 3-9x scopes are a little too powerful to get a good indication of flyers and BB drop. You can use them but it's much harder work. I prefer lower power scopes. 1-4x 1.5-4x 2-7x They have the advantage of been close to a regular red dot at the lower power, but offering enough zoom for the inaccuracies of airsoft. Anything more than 4x isn't very useful in my experience. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tactical-Recon-Monocular-Telescope-Scope-1-5-4X30-Waterproof-Picatinny-Rail/142661853309?epid=705572126&hash=item21374f207d:g:nZQAAOSwRWZcHeuZ:rk:3:pf:0 https://www.solware.co.uk/hawke-vantage-2-7x32-ao-mil-dot-scope I would certainly not spend over the odds on a scope that is going to be shot in CQB. Cheap and cheerful, Easy to replace, near disposable. For woodland I will put on a more expensive scope with some lens protection. The hawke 2-7x I would probably use in CQB. The only issue you might have is it's not illuminated. Otherwise it's a scope designed for target shooting air rifles. So it's accurate and should hold a good zero.

    Perusing the classifieds as you do, went to make an offer on a Rifle, and this popped up. Hasn’t happened before but I had no means of getting around it. Sent an email instead. Any chance this is just limited to me?

    • For sale
    • Used

    Here is my brothers TM Mp5, only owned it for a couple of months, Recently serviced. Wired to deans. Reason for selling is My brother has gone more to the sniping role and uses his SRS more. When we purchased it had a few niggles to it, the wiring was atrocious, it was shooting inconsistently etc etc. All of these faults have been addressed and it now works perfectly, from what I remember, it isn’t upgraded, mostly stock or like for like items internally.(Think motor was changed previously) Collection preferred, will post at cost, defence required. Any questions(or if you want any more photos) please ask, my brother has provided me with this info, I'm just listing! Always open to offers and swaps, just let me know what you’ve got. Please note: As of 14/9/18 this is now spares or repairs, when used today the fire selector plate has obviously become warn. It fires fine in semi and auto, but you have to push the lever down to get it to fire auto consistently. The part is £10 from Eagle6. Price reflected.

    £70.00

    Hi all, Had to laugh at Jays post earlier re Mid life crisis as I've just finished my first full year of Airsoft at 47! Started out trying to get my 14 yr old boy out and active- he hated it and I got hooked lol. Looking to get out to other sites this year so hope to see some of you guys in the field.😀

    Legal limit is 550. Skirmish is 500. I only know this because some sniper ops events run at 550fps limits.

    If it's your only rifle and you're 100% going to use it both inside and out, then there's 3 options: 1 - Get the red dot which will work indoors and out, you can always buy a flip-to-side magnifier later as well if you find you want magnification. That will depend on your eyesight and related considerations. 2 - Buy a longer range scope for outdoor and just don't bring it to CQB. You can use the provided BUIS if you really want, but the fact is you're slower using a sight at about 15-20m or less vs instinctive aiming, so there's no need. 3 - As suggested get something that adjusts from 0/1 up to 4 or 6 power, which is as close to a do-all optic in a single package as you can get. Nobody can pick for you though, personal preference. Both the red dot/mag combo and the 1-6 type variables are in service with all sorts of SF units the world over because both setups are as good as you can get with the technology we currently have. You get a better sight picture through the variable for longer range work vs the magnifier, but it's not quite as efficient for CQB as the red dot when the magnifier is flipped down. There is no perfect solution, just what you fancy. Vortex is the brand to go for all things considered, certainly if you just want to invest in something one time then never have to worry about buying another optic ever if you don't want to.

    I just use the normal pistol style speedloader like in your first pic with the little adapter end. MWS mags are a little stiff, but Once you get the right angle they load nicely.

    🤷🏻‍♂️ I’m younger than them In the shop. They get on better with people similarly aged to themselves. Unfortunately the shop is the wrong side of Essex for me. DTW is only 5m square, but I understand mate, if that ever changes, let us know, me and my team( you already know Alan) will quite happily set up a little game for you to try with us. P.s We are completely nuts.

    Lubricating your AEG/ Maintenance

    Lubing your gun is quite personal. By that I mean everyone does something different, and what one person sees as right, another will shoot down. As such there is no hard and fast way to lube a gun and please everyone. The BB inlet port as you described it is part of the hop unit. Most people will avoid any lubrication there. If it gets onto the bucking it can mess with the backspin of the BB, Reducing range and accuracy. Some people will lube up the inner barrel, others will just clean it with rubbing alcohol. Gearbox wise there is very little you can do without opening the gearbox. The rule of cool is metal on metal use a moly or lithium grease. Metal on plastic or plastic on plastic use a silicone based grease. The externals of your gun should be wiped down every now and again with some oil, Silicone is fine sprayed into a rag, or in liquid form in the same way. External moving parts generally get a light smear if silicone grease or left dry. Plastic guns don't need external oil, A steel gun will need a light coat like a regular firearm, just to prevent rust.

    Lubricating your AEG/ Maintenance

    Honestly, it’s a mixed bag depending on who you talk to. I’m a firm believer in don’t open it up until it gets noticeably worse or you need to replace a part, when it gets to this stage, fully service the gearbox internals, clean and re lubricate. Watch a couple of YT vids on This. I have been told that some hard hop rubbers require a drop of silicone oil on them to stop them splitting, personally I can’t think of anything worse. Barrel cleaning, Denatured alcohol/alcohol swab on a cleaning rod, turn hop off, measure up to hop, push in to hop(not through) twisting slowly to clean the barrel. Maybe monthly? Thats all you’ll need for now. Others will tell you to do things to mags etc, I never have, so it’s up to you.

    Carrying a secondary when sniping

    Check my "versatile sniper kit" and "gun retention" threads, I've tried to solve your exact same problem I have found a decent solution with an old sling I had, my arp is now hanging from my right shoulder, securing the muzzle onto my belt. If you're not wearing a backpack I'd say get a 1 point sling and bodge some sort of loop to stick the vector's muzzle in when you're not using it

    I’d go for the dot too. Unless you’re regularly hitting people over 60m away, the dot will be better suited

    Which Sight

    Unless it’s for a sniper/DMR (which it isn’t in your case) I’d go with the red dot. If youve got the money for a vortex see if they do a reflex style sight, I much prefer those as you get a wider field of view

    Correct vortex has an amazing warranty and I can but one of these fit to any RIF I want and never have to worry about buying another to replace it, as vortex will do that for me. Just check out vortex UK on instagram or Facebook and you will see they say it themselves if it's shot out they will repair or replace it.

    Vortex do. Virtually every airsoft shop that sells them has it listed as such too. Why spend £50 on a crappy replica that you throw away once it’s shot out when you can buy a RS one that will literally last a lifetime.

    Angry gun silencer

    I can, using "site BBs" is all well and good but you should be chronoing with the weight the player plans to use to rule out joule creep. When everyone gets off the FPS @ .2g bandwagon i'll be happy. Can't say i've really come across many people who try to cheat the system but then i've not played many places. The mall were super strict with checking with a lower limit and worthing check in joules. Would be nice to see more random spot checks in game though. Can't say i've ever seen one outside of a YT video xD

    Custom paint work

    Most of my paint jobs range in price from £70-£100. Something like an M4 in a worn tan with one mag would be the £70 option. The Templar m4 wouldn't actually be much much as there weren't that many colours used. Probably £80. Prices climb a little if it's something like the HALO or Boba Fett finish as thete is more masking involved. In general though all paint finishes are £100 or under. Only time it goes above that is when there are multiple mags and attachments that all need painting too. I've been told I'm too cheap but being a married man with 2 kids myself I know a lot of folks don't have cash to splash about and I enjoy doing them and seeing the reactions they get. Hope that helps. The jacket was my first go at distressing clothing. On one side, the dirtier looking side, I used a lot of acrylic spray paint and really thinned down oil paints to give the appearance of stains. On the other I used a sludge that came out of the heating system when we were putting in a new kitchen. The paints work as you woukd expect but give the material a bit of a stiff feel to them. The sludge worked just like a dye and left the fabric nice and soft. I need to get hold of some 'Dirty Down' fabric crayons as they would be much better for around the cuffs, collar, elbows, etc. I'm also going to get some black and brown clothes dye to play about with. So far it's all been an experiment. Posted below are a few more pics as I've added some stencils and a back pack. Still quite a bit to do but it's good fun.
