    getting the options is the hard part. Create a thread ask for opinions on say death mechanics so people can flood their brilliant ideas like arm up? standard up? sit down? lie down? disassemble your RIF and hide the parts in a near by bush? dig a hole and bury your self alive for failing your team? you could just use straw poles once you have the data for the options.

    What makes Airsoft a joke

    The dynamic games at the depot never go well. Just ends up being a tdm because nobody has any idea wtf they’re supposed to be doing.

    Had these turn up so far today and the postie hasn’t even been yet. 511 tdu duty belt for keeping those trousers up. In keeping with a lighter feel to my kit. Flyye water bottle pouch as opposed to running about with a camelback and courtesy of patrol base. Fma exfil (team Wendy clone) helmet. Worked out just as cheap as the Ali express one and a whole lot less hassle. Now I’m just waiting for my Leo kholer atacs ix trousers and ubacs and my 1t opscore style multicam helmet cover.

    Will my eyepro be compatible with Novritsch 0.5Xg+ 6.45mm BBs, or will I need to upgrade that to play against them? Oh gawd, the chronomaths. No, I don't have 0.2g 6.45mm BBs, why would I? No, I can't use your site 0.2g 6mms. I have these 0.5Xg 6.45mms so you'll need to set the chrono for that to work out the energy, or keep a conversion sheet to hand just for me, or trust me when I promise I'm not over-power even though all SSGs seem to be over-power. And by the way, did I mention that Novritsch says that they have different flight characteristics to 6mm, so I feel...

    Actually is (for once !😱) a nice idea but I think it won’t work , there’s just not enough uniformity in Airsofting sites to get the idea workable . I’ve never been to two sites that you could say were the same , I’ve been to a few ‘similar’ ones but never two that you could run the same gameday on both . You’d think if it’s woodland you can do ABC and if it’s CQB you’d run XYZ but it’s not that simple , just way too many variables . Player numbers ; does the site have large attendance numbers 100+ Or small numbers sub 30 players . player...

    So I managed to find a brand new SRC XM8 Gen 2 in OD on an obscure Italian site a little while ago. Bloody rare these days. Just managed to pick it up today! Along with a G36 c-mag for the g36. That makes it two XM8s for me!

    I don't want a unified rule system simply because sites have their rules tailored to their clientele, location, e.t.c. One site I go to, Apocalypse, is massive, so we have a medic rule that allows us to respawn on teammates a few times before we have to go back to respawn. There aren't too many buildings so ricochet hits do not count. On the flip side, Airsoft GB, is medium sized, so you go back to respawn when you die, there are alot of buildings, so ricochet hits count. Seems like you want to change airsoft for the sake of change rather than for a genuine, well-founded and popular opinion.

    There's a reason why I haven't gone ahead and done something like this in the past - every site, every game has different rules. The one thing that is common between all the various types of games out there is that we wear eye pro. tbh you don't even need something custom to do this, you could just use Google Forms afaik!

    What makes Airsoft a joke

    Some of us are their to shoot the kids. I mean save them. I actually don't assume people are there to play a team game as I have less faith in peoples motivations. I however really enjoy team work and objectives. A few issues I have at the depot is the "we have a marshall with a <insert object here> on them. Find them kill them take the objective and receive further instructions" the team who don't get the instructions have heehaw idea what to next so just go shoot as what else you going to do. The best game I like is the flag game with 4 pre designated...

    What makes Airsoft a joke

    You're still getting back into the game 2 minutes faster than everyone else, regardless of the time to walk to spawn! Infinite medics is so abuseable it's not even funny, one person hiding behind a barricade as the 'medic' never shows, the rest of the team all peek and shoot. As soon as one is hit the invisible medic comes along and revives them ... Countering that is near impossible if they're in a half decent position, I know, I've done it. Me and a friend held off the entire opposing team for 30 minutes before we ran out of ammo.

    Bhaha..Had a go of a GBB Mp7 with a drum mag on the weekend and must admit that it was coolAF. However, I sh*t myself worrying about getting that pistol you see above back together after I’d cleaned it. There was only one screw involved and a handful of moving parts. I wouldn’t even know where to start trying to modify and maintain a GBB rifle! I think I’ll stick to batteries for the time being!

    The bfg is mostly for bunker clearing as the local site has a lot of small bunkers and fox holes. Anything else will still be paper pyro as you can lob that more safely that a pound of metal

    Snape was supposed to read snappier lol. As for the rest I was talking about the gears in the gearbox so if you're not going to crack the gearbox than go with this one when he next gets it in stock https://www.ak2m4.co.uk/internal-parts/motors-parts/sld-high-torque-motor-22tpa-long You can leave the air nozzle as well if you don't want to open up the gearbox.

    Update 1 PB customer service just rang (polite lad) asking what exactly was wrong with the gun. Gave them an account of what's what,and explained that everything is in writing with the paperwork in the box ,he hasn't been given that 🤔....the gun will be looked at in the next few days in the workshop and I should know by Wednesday what's gonna happen next.

    i'm not sure, i did the math for 6mm bb's, but not for 8mm. i suspect there'd be a crossover where a 6mm bb of a lower weight would go further than an 8mm one of the same density (ie where the weight difference doesn't overcome the drag difference), but precisely where that point is i couldn't say. certainly for the same diameter a heavier bb with enough spin will go further than a lighter one of the same energy.

    there's a lot of interesting stuff could be done with rulesets, like as luke puts above with medic rules and armbands would be great milsim stuff, especially if you're limiting the medic. (i've heard the americans do a buddy/bottle system, first hit is buddy revive, second is drink a bottle of water from a medic, forces folk to stay hydrated and caps the medic based on how many bottles he can carry) problem is getting some people to master a concept as simple as if you're hit then you stop playing is apparently too difficult. i'm a fan of the push style game- 1 life per zone or a 30...

    drag is a squared relationship with velocity, but a larger diameter ball is going to have a larger surface area. my point was that all things being equal (weight and energy) i don't see what would be wrong with an 8mm bb compared to a 6mm bb. granted larger bb's do afford more weight (given there's a limit on their density) but if you have a weight limit then again it doesn't really matter the diameter.

    Interested, sure. But I think what game mechanics people want to use and what works best for each game type is pretty different. Some games work best with the most simple hit = death, go back to respawn and straight back in. Other games you might be on limited lives to the first few hits you get a medic then the 3rd hit your out. On another thread the other day someone suggested using bandages/white arm bands for when your playing the medic rule in a game and I think this personally is a fantastic idea. You could really get creative and make some interesting games and game play based...

    My Russian collection , so far.... Koer bolt action SVD with upgraded barrel and hop . Faux painted wood effect . (Ares mags will fit these with a bit of fettling). Unknown make AK47MS with mosfet and shimmed gearbox (surprised me with its range and accuracy). WE Makarov APS SVU DMR with mosfet , upgraded barrel , hop and shimmed gearbox . I’d like a modern AK variant to “match” the SVU if I can sneak it past the wife .

    /thread I just replaced the 110mm inner barrel on my MP5K with a 250mm, hidden inside a silencer. The fps went down from 315 to 305 and the consistency was worse. So the stock barrel went back in at lunch, and all was well again. Stubby is, er.... lubbly.

    That's a sound plan. The rental G36s there are decent enough and they'll give you a feel for whether you want to buy an AEG, even if it's only as a back up in case your GBBR / pistol throws a wobbly on a game day. It can be a day-saver, and I always keep something spare around. £52 for a rental day at the Depot seems steep, but you're getting about £8 worth of BBs which you'll get through eventually so the gun rental itself comes out to about £12. The rental masks are indeed awful and nearly put me off, so I would thoroughly recommend getting some eye...

    What makes Airsoft a joke

    I see actually. Especially if it’s a corner fight they can just be pulled back in and revived. Guess that’s where pyro or a well executed rush has its place but does sound annoying. In in terms of dominating the other team. If I could yes i probably would rein myself back in by playing differently (experiment with new parts of the site, novelty kit) but I’m just not that good so I’ll keep every advantage I can get for now 😂. Absolute stompings aren’t really fun for anybody

    good footwear, good eye pro (fullface/separates/glasses, your choice), & an AEG, doesn't have to cost the earth, its a starter to get you playing & also to help you decide what platforms (m4/ak/mp5 etc) "fits" you & your comfortable with. then, with more experience, you can think about gbbr's or whatever else you think floats your boat, knowing that you've got an adequate non expensive back up aeg when all the other uber expensive temperamental kit lets you down.......which it will 😉

    THE TM MWS thread

    Congrats @peeved87! Also thanks for reminding me to add mine to the club. Standard for now but will be DMR’ing this (hence the short dot scope) once I’ve established a base line performance so I can measure the impact of each upgrade. Going with the 370mm prommy .03 inner, modify tan bucking and the super nub or the Laylax strike hop arm, then probably a PTS CMR M-Lok 12.5” handguard. Might do more and go longer in the future. First impressions of the stock gun are overwhelmingly positive, absolutely love the sound of this and the kick. Definitely can never go back to an AEG again. Skirmishable GBBRs was the...

    Get some good eye protection and boots if you looking to spend some money. Boot aren't that important in the depot but the bigger tread does help find some traction when you step on a pile of bbs and in the outdoors your ankles will thank you for the support for all the uneven ground/rocks / roots you need to walk over. I know your doing it for the fitness but I'd get a sling so when your dead you don't need to hold your rifle works on rental guns and can transfer to what ever gun you end up getting. If you've got money to burn then get a...

    Is your adapter alu or plastic? Mine fill realy bad with an alu adapter, plastic is better but i have the same problem as you never sure when its actually full. I'm gonna place some silent fill o rings monday so maybe this will fix things. I you have gas spitting out your mags aren't silent will ones as you wont see gas spitting out of them. You can clearly hear the gas go into the mag and you won't hear a thing when they are full. (atleast thats how it is with my hi capa mags)

    Don’t use ruoskygear store on aliexpress. Ordered a fma exfil lite foliage green helmet last Monday. 4 days ago (2 before the cancellation deadline) they asked if I would accept dark earth instead which was ok. Yesterday morning it was marked as despatched. A few hours before automatic cancellation. Today they message to say they don’t have DE would black be ok. Well clearly it hasn’t been despatched and they are lying.

    Did you try full auto? (Sometimes gears lock up in semi) Different battery? (Always worth asking someone to try their battery if you only have one) Some guns do have some play even on the real steel versions. Can be possible to tighten up with some wadding. Good luck with the replacement anyway...
