    Low Cap Only Games

    Meh, real caps are stupid (imo) for the simple reason many of you have already explained: airsoft guns have nowhere near the capabilities of a real gun. All it takes is a leaf or tiny branch to send your bb off to the sky. I can understand them being OK in a hardcore cqb milsim type of game, where your max range is 10 metres and everyone plays naked, but in every other scenario the only thing that comes to my mind is endless hordes of angry players yelling either "yo I hit you, call it" or "MAAAAAARSHAAAAAAAAAALL HE'S NOT CALLING HIS HITS" just because with 30 rounds available you MUST be ultra picky on targets.. midcaps are a nice balance between ammo capacity and not being a living maracas..

    A&K M249 MK2

    unless its been up graded it's not designed to run 11.1v capacity is more relevant the voltage (though lipo over Ni-Mhs every time) i could run 6000 rounds through mine on 7.4v 5200mah lipo no problem.

    A&K M249 MK2

    Depends on what space you have but i'd say the biggest capacity 11.1v you can fit in there, you'll need it. Yes standard rifle capacity batteries will work but you'll need to change them regular if you're putting out a lot of suppresive fire (and if you arent putting out a lot of suppresive fire why the hell would you carry an m249 )

    Low Cap Only Games

    I'm not a fan of most limited ammo games. However I also dislike the mass spray play style of some. I would like to use midcaps, but after spending a fair amount and struggling to get ones that consistently feed well in both my aegs I gave up. For the past few months now I run with one ~400 round flash mag, a couple of pistol mags and a full speed loader. That now lasts me 2-4 normal "quick" games or a much longer afternoon game.

    I inherited an old type Stanley roller case, perfect for dragging a stash load of gear, and as you say it becomes a seat and a work bench. I no longer rate the current generation, the plastic doesn’t seem as tough. You would have to go for a Fat Max etc for something as rigged. But the old Stanley has the right balance without being overly large

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Only thing you’ll want to look at in the future is replacing those batteries. I really dont get on with nuprol batteries. Have a look on component shop and get some much better Turnigy batteries in future.

    So, after many questions and sucking of teeth I have finally done it. First gun bought - TM HK416d DevGru. Got it with: - x5 PTS-EMP 120/30 rnd mags (plus the stock mag that comes with it) - Magpul style AFH mk2 angled foregrip - Magpul style CTR stock (drilled out by the retailer to fit the battery) - x3 Nurprol 7.4v 1100mah lipo (converted for deans, as is the 416) - Nurprol hard case Particular thanks to Dave at Daves Custom Airsoft for helping me out with the order and stupid noobie questions - great guy, great store and great service, take a look at this site HERE Also, very many thanks to all those that helped answer all my questions on this forum. For those that posted about the Scorpion, it was touch and go all the way and I very nearly got it! But particualr thanks to Druid799 on these forums who has been really REALLY helpful! - Hope to see some of you out on the skirmish sites - Sharpe

    Face Prtotection

    Mmm, sorry, but that's not a great choice of mask. One strap is always going to be problematical, and full mesh can make it hard to look down your sights. I agree with bodging a strap over your head, but long term, one of the half-cloth OneTigris clones with two straps solves a lot of problems that you didn't previously know that you had until you started sinking money into airsoft. "Foldable half face mask" is a good starting point for searching. Ear protection isn't vital, but can't hurt. I mean, it'll hurt less.

    Traffic Stop with rifs in car

    Hi, have just joined the website so first of all, Hello everyone. I found the best thing to do was be polite and honest with the officer. Explain what is in your car if asked. my nuprol case wass in the boot but has to come into the rear seats through the 40/60 split, that is why the officer saw it. She asked what it was so I told her politely and as calmly as I could give the circumstance. She asked me to very calmly take her to my boot to show her what I meant. She had a look inside my case, saw the battery, the bottle of BB’s, had a look at the email receipt from the venue I had just played at, all whilst I was trying my best to explain things. She didn’t call for armed response. After looking at my equipment and deeming me “safe” she even asked if it hurt so I showed her my “wounds” and she laughed and asked why would you do that?! Ha i think honesty and not being a dick is the right way forward. Obviously it depends on the officer in question. I could have easily ended up being handcuffed in the back of the police car waiting for armed response to come and deem everything safe. But hopefully that day will never come

    Good luck, sounds a good idea in theory but I cant ever recall seeing more than 3 or 4 women on a site with 100 odd blokes. So will be interested to hear what ratio split you ended up with. Too far for me to travel for a game, and I play airsoft to get away from the mr's so wouldn't invite her anyway. Although shooting her does sound appealing

    G&G TGM MP5 A4 Motor issues

    Trying unscrewing the motor adjustment screw a little bit more. IMO it sounds like you don't know what your doing (i mean this with the least offence) so i would recommend you take the RIF back to the shop or a shop with a decent tech to sort it out for you. You might find these Youtube videos useful for your RIF as its the same gun just with a retractable stock instead of the solid stock.

    THE TM MWS thread

    The misses went out, so I did a bit of colour detailing on the MTR to match the ‘scope

    Yes, it is probably a Western thing. We are not some third world country, tin pot dictatorship, or sky fairy worshiping nation that has bought, been given, or made copies of AK guns; so no reason for the West to favour them. For many years the AK represented communism and what was wrong in the World, a tool favoured by terrorists and undemocratic societies. Airsoft does not bear much relation to real steel guns, airsoft guns could be made in any design. The only way that a non AR15 platform will be replaced is if TM or similar company make an exceptional gun with high quality performance and a very low price point so that everyone wants one, and swaps to the new design so that it becomes the standard. I would like to see E21 blasters as the next big thing, with built in tracer units to simulate the red laser blast .

    KWA/Umarex H&K .45 GBB

    Big, pleasingly chunky black DA/SA automatic, with polymer frame, metal slide and plastic inner barrel. Large, imposing and looks fantastic with that typical H&K look of good, solid but styled design. The BMW M5 of pistols? It looks and feels like the kind of thing Schwarzenegger would wield but is very comfy in the hand even if you aren't an Austro-Californian weightlifter. I originally went shopping for a VFC/Stark Arms Glock 18C but found it to be not so different enough to my Tokyo Marui model while not accepting the same magazines that I couldn’t justify it. Then I saw this, I compared it to the TM version and the officially licensed by Heckler und Koch Umarex/KWA feels much nicer with better weight. I looked at one with a flat dark earth frame but it looked nastier somehow, the "FDE" was more like a yellowy colour. · Packaging is lovely, securely nestled in a foam cutout inside an H&K branded box in black and red and I must admit this gives a sense of childish satisfaction. The well written manual is also officially branded H&K in the same vein with clear well labeled pictures and is good as far as it goes… which isn’t very far. It does not give you any hint on how to strip it or change the backstrap or even that these things are possible. If you want to practice your German, French or Spanish though you’re in luck. · Contents: KWA type hop adjuster key (Or “Shoot Up” as the manual more accurately names it). A safety key to lock it in case of discovery by curious little fingers (also like the real thing), and a second backstrap for those with larger hands. Oh, and some BBs. · Exterior: Markings, seem to be authentic as Umarex are a German company like Heckler & Koch and have used that connection to get the rights, although the "HK45 .45 Auto" on the left of the slide are in white paint rather than engraved as per the "Real Steel", otherwise it seems 100% faithful. HK .45 auto and the serial number are stamped into the breech of the plastic outer barrel. There is a non-functional, dummy “chamber loaded” indicator showing a sliver of red. All other controls are real and work as per the Real Steel. Frame mounted Safety/Decocker is right hand only although the slide and magazine releases are ambidextrous with a paddle style mag release at the back of the trigger guard like on Walther P99s. · Ergonomics and operation. Ambidextrous slide and magazine release but not safety/decocker despite that it seems set up for it. Controls are similar to a 1911 for those used to the old .45 auto, this is like it's German grandson. Very suitable for use with gloved hands, well sized trigger guard, nicely sized in all respects with forward serrations. The super comfy grip has finger grooves and a great stippling type pattern.The magazines have a heel on them that extends the grip if you need to and the design means you can grasp the mag to pull it out should that prove necessary (it hasn't). Lightweight and plasticky at 830 grams, despite the metal slide. The outer barrel is plastic, disappointingly, I didn’t notice that in the shop, although the inner seems not to be brass but is silver in colour. Steel possibly? Big Picatinny rail with four "gaps". Operation: Double Action/Single Action with a decocker that works as a safety catch, although confusingly you have to switch it off “Safe” onto “Fire”, and past that it decocks. But when you let go of the switch smartly it snaps back onto “Safe”. Like a lot of German designs it requires you to operate it in a certain way as the designers have already thought through the correct way to do it. And they know best. So dogmatic, so Cherman. Trigger pull feels nice and fairly crisp (for an airsoft gun) and the metal trigger has grooves down the length which make it nice and smooth to use. Sights are three white dots. The long grip is suitable for larger hands, especially with the interchangeable backstrap. As it is I have smaller hands so kept it as it came, the grip is narrower than guns based on “double stack” 9mms and perfectly comfortable for less than huge hands. It has a shallow but nicely “grippy” rough pattern that should keep al but the sweatiest hands firm. The mag locks down so you can just use a BB loader to feed 25 rounds in through the feed lips then press the follower and it snaps up under spring pressure. Nice and easy to load, it says it's 28 rounds but I play safe and load no more than 25 .25s. · Hop up is via the aforementioned KWA style “key” that goes into a castellated piece around the breech. The slide must be pulled and held halfway back to adjust, locking it back will mean you can’t reach. Having had experience of this system via my KWA/PTS Mega rifle I must admit this was almost a deal breaker. The rifle version is made of the crappiest, softest metal they could find and wears out immediately. Literally immediately. However this pistol’s seems to work thus far, but it’s early days yet and the pistol version is a different size to the rifle, the keys are not interchangeable. So maybe it won’t have the crippling weak spot that the LM4 and MKM have. · Disassembly is much like an M1911A1, pull the slide halfway back to a notch cut in it, push the left side of the slide lock latch out and release the slide forward. The right side latch remains in place. · Shooting, range and accuracy. 6.05 apparently, the combination of the new type gas system with a good hop rubber means it reaches out beyond what you'd expect a pistol to. Metal slide so it can handle Guarder Black Gas and .25s right out of the box, indeed it needs .25s at a minimum - anything less it doesn't shoot as well and .28s seem ideal. Typically I get two magazines worth out of on gas fill, it might not lock back on the second lot though. Consistently reaches 30 metres/yards ish with ease and I think with that maybe with careful hop adjustment and pellet choice that 40+ accuracy beckons, I’m waiting for a still day but I was getting 9 out 10 shots hitting a steel oil drum at 35 yards in a fairly stiff breeze. This looks to have the potential to be an actual useful game gun, not so much CQB but I think maybe it could hold enemy off at AEG distances! No idea how fast it shoots, don't have a chromo. Cost: Yes it was pricey at £160, magazines are expensive too at about £40. And holsters for it are rare I had to buy a Real Steel Blackhawk Retention Holster meant for the 9mm version, that was another £40 too. So altogether I'm up to around £290 so far. I don't regret it though as this seems like a practical and reliable choice for games (as opposed to my much modded KJW 226 which is somewhat temperamental after all my fiddling with it). I didn't like the plastic outer barrel, I felt it detracted from the realism and sounded sort of crappy too. I ordered an RA Tech steel outer and it looks, sounds and feels great... as it bloody should do for £50! It doesn't seem to have affected the thermal efficiency as I was warned it would, still shoots the same to me. Feels properly hefty and weighty in the hand and the grey steel breech has the same serial number and H&K logo, and it now looks and feels complete. I do however take care to keep the outer and slide very well lubricated as it has been pointed out that the softer alloy slide sliding over the harder steel outer will result in undue wear. I could have got a brass one instead and I could see how the aesthetics of that might appeal - imagine polished, shiny brass and black. It would make it quite bling. Durability: I've put several bottles of .25s and .28s through it now and it's still going strong, hop might be wearing as seems like it's a bit less accurate than it used to be (although it's difficult to tell with airsofts). Slide sounded kind of "twangy and scrapy" to begin with but the combo of use, lubing and the steel outer solved that. I later learned that the Real Steel sounds the same! Magazine fill valves kept going at first but that seems to have stopped now. I ran it on butane and MAPP gas in the winter and it seemed to like it. in the last 2 weeks the safety/decocker no longer "clicks" into place and doesn't spring back from decock so readily - I'm guessing a spring? Verdict. Excellent; accurate, good range, easy to shoot and hold, high end GBB pistol that looks and feels like a movie hero's gun. Worth the money despite the plastic outer barrel. I'm not the only one who rates this GBB either: KWA HK45 Green Gas Pistol by Elite Force & Umarex | Airsoftology ...

    You'll have folk recommend waiting until you have your UKARA, but I just went ahead and bought a 2-tone, which became a 1-tone the minute that it arrived as I had further games booked and that's all the defence that you need. Got anything particular in mind?
