    THE TM MWS thread

    Hard luck, i guess you have tried looking at Eagle 6? https://eagle6.co.uk/shop/catalog/product/view/id/2501/s/tokyo-marui-m4a1-mws-magazine-bb-lip-for-m4-gbbr-series/ Shown Out of stock at the moment, put your self on teh waiting list and hope he gets stock soon.
  2. How long are we storing for? I have never heard of the foam attacking guns in their cases but i am aware of course that over time some foams degrade to a powder. I have seen a TM P90 that had been stored in a fabric gun bag for over 10 years in a loft with no maintenence coming out fine. If your really worried i would say, spray some silicon oil on to a clothe and wipe a thin layer of oil over the metal parts of the gun, then you can wrap it in greaseproof paper and then put it into the case. Your main worry isnt going to be the foam but humidity and rust so throw a few of those silica gel packs to keep the air inside dry. If you can, try shrink packing the RIFs too.
  3. This is too true, i was reading this thread and instantly thought of these two. KOA: I dealt with them back in 2017 when all i wanted was a simple R-Hop mod to be done on my M4, initial communications was excellent, gun got sent to him then nothing for 4 to 5 months. I know he is a one man business and he did give lead times of 6 months but his comms was awful after that. Now i know that family and life come before work but the constant "i thrown my back out" and "the missus is ill" constantly getting in the way of his work lead me to believe that if he is trying to make a sucessful business work (and it is in high demand) then perhaps he should start at looking at hiring and training people to do the same job. That way work doesn't stop when he throws his back out. I was at one point seriously starting to consider opening a case against KOA when suddenly, out of the blue and email saying your gun is on its way to you. A relatively similar company to KOA would be Umbrella Armouries in the US, they have a warehouse, just like KOA. They make and mod AEGs to a high standard, just like KOA. Provide a raft or products and services, just like KOA. But unlike KOA they have a staff of highly trained technicians, this means when one of them goes sick or ill, the rest and can pick up the work flow. As for the Molyneux Advanced Systems Grenade, i think that was another issue entirely, he started witha concept design and idea which was great, got funding though kickstarter or whatever and began his work, everything seemed hunky dory. Then "FEATURE CREEP" started to set in, he was adding more and more features etc which added more design time and even caused him to have to learn programming. He deviated so much from the core concept that entire project more or less fell apart and he wasted more money than he should of. Im no business man but if i were in his place, get the intial product done, send it to the buyers, build trust and work on further features and projects. Improve the device and release a new model which newer and existing people will buy. NOPE he tried to do it all in one go and FAILED. Great Engineer he was, poor business accumen. Another similar DOOMED airsoft device/idea was the BL Tech BOSS Unit, this was designed, using green gas to simulate the loud crack/report of gunfire from an AEG and apparently did it well. Again the basic unit was simple, attach to gun, charge using green gas and link it to the gun and boom done. The FEATURE CREEP set in as they got interest and they started adding RFID cards etc, then tried to peddle it to buyers for the low, low cost of, wait for it £400, so yeah nah you can keep it mate.

    Accessory/Make: SLR Rifleworks 7” Keymod Rail (AEG) (airsoft clone) Condition: Used Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No x 3 Price/Payment: £25 Location: North East London (Leyton) Pictures: For sale is an Airsoft replica SLR Rifleworks 7” Keymod Rail Unfortunately, I don’t know the exact brand of this rail, I received it as part of bundle purchase, it came to me fitted to a TM MWS GBBR. Made from aluminium, it has some nicks and scratches here and there (see pic), if it fits a TM MWS GBBR then it should fit AEGs.

    Accessory/Make: G&P KAC (Knights Armament Company) QD Supressor with CW Flash Hider Condition: Used Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No x 3 Price/Payment: £50 Location: North East London (Leyton) Pictures: For Sale is a G&P KAC QD Suppressor, I have owned this since new for about 3 to 4 years, up until about 2 years ago I have barely ever fielded it so it has remained in my gun case unused and I have no further intention of using it ever so, for sale it must go. Comes with a standard M4 birdcage flash hider with cut out for the pin in the suppressor to prevent the suppressor from rotating. Please note that the flash hider is a CW (positive clockwise) thread as G&P is one of the few brands that use CW threads as opposed to the usual CCW. The Suppressor should fit other birdcage style flash hiders that are CCW thread as it does not rely on this to fit. I have also replaced the original foam inside the suppressor .

  7. Most Airsoft guns use the metric sized allen key system. So M1, M1.3, M1.5, M2, M3 and so on. Most basic allen key sets dont generally cater towards M1, M1.3 and M1.5 as they are very small but are also the most common sizes in airsoft. You can get these sizes from DIY shops or eBay If however you have a Polarstar Fusion Engine, then you will need a imperial set.
  8. Cheers for that 225mm is about 8.85inches which throws my idea out of the window Looks like i might have to fork out for a RS Magpul Remington stock then.
  9. Hhhmm i wouldn't trust a reviews website that gets it wrong. In the same page he reviews the "APS CAM870SF Shell Ejecting Zombie Hunter CQB CO2 Airsoft Shotgun" and says (and i quote) "Meanwhile, the magazine holds up to four shells and a single CO2 cartridge at any given time". Yes it holds 4 shells but it does NOT hold an CO2 cartridges in the gun, in MK1 and 3 CAM 870 the shells hold CO2, in MK2s the bolt holds a charge of CO2. Yes, Mr Airsoftology has reivewed it too, even without sound i can only bet he is harping on about how great it is. I think he's ok as an Airsoft Youtube Celeb but frankly you could give him an airsoft gun made out of turds and he would tell you its better than anything TM or Krytac ever made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcXbEen_-8Y Trust me we are trying to steer you away from bad products as we have tried and we have tested them already and know, we aren't trying to be arseholes about (it come across like that) but the adage old saying stands, buy nice or buy twice. You'll buy this gun, get totally out gunned (even in CQB) buy players running around with Combat Machines or Nuprol Defenders et al. You either hate the sport and quit it before you had a chance to enjoy it or you'll go out and get the CYMA M4 AEG for £95 which is about as low as you can go. If you had saved up and not spent the £40 of so on the Cyma shotgun, you would have had £140 to spend and get a nicer Nuprol or Combat Machine. If you're heart is dead set on this CYMA shotgun then go for it, just avoid any shops with "BB" in their name such as Just BB Guns or BB Guns for Less et al. However i'll say it now "I told you so!"
  10. Quick two questions from you guys 1) Does anyone know where i can get just the stock for the Amoeba? 2) Could someone measure that action length? This is the length from the centre of the bolt just behind the trigger guard to the centre of the bolt in front of the magwell. It should either be 6.5inches (short action) or 7.35inches (long action). Image below for reference: Reason i ask is i like the look of the Amoeba Stock, looks very similar to the Magpul Remington 700 stock except that stock is £300+ from Brownells and only accepts a tapered barrel wheres the Amoeba accepts bull barrels by the look of it and i want to transplant another bolt rifle into it. TIA
  11. As you have mentioned, Yes your dad can buy you a two toned IF or if he has UKARA a RIF (assuming he is over 18). He must gift that IF or RIF to you, no exchange of money, for example he bought it for your birthday. If he somehow manages to procure a RIF (say in black), there is no need for you to two tone it unless that's what you are after. As someone else mentioned above about the CYMA CM.352L. CYMA only really make one kind of gun that's decent and that's their AK AEGs. Tri shotguns like those are very hit and miss, more miss if anything. Only shotgun i would trust are the TM ones and if you want actual fun the CAM 870 ones, i have an SAI CAM 870, yes its fun watching 12 BBs + the plastic wad + the paper cap and the faces of the target when i shoot it at them, then manually loading the next shell as the spent one flies out of the gun (in a shell catcher, them shells are expensive).
  12. If you live North West London probably your actual closest site is Red1 The School in Kings Langley. They have a 3 storey school building and a wood land site off of it as well. And Reforger Airsoft too
  13. Currently use: TM BioHazard ALBERT W Model 01P Pistol - Basically a TM M9A1 in tarted up Resident Evil logos and Engravings. Shoots as expected of a TM, straight, far, crisp snappy kick back and gas efficient. Previously used and now spare: TM M92FS - This was a work horse, i fell on it, rolled in mud with it, used in hot, cold, wet and windy weather. Had to replace the slide once after i cracked the sights off due to falling on concrete during game, but internals are all the same and stock, always shot straight and true. As a bonus its mags also work in the ALBERT W Model. Wall Piece - TM Glock 34 - Was bought to go with a Kryptek Typhon grey/black loadout for CQB, fitted with a GunsModify SAI slide, RMR Sights, RS Streamlight TLR1-HR, loads of gold blingy bits to go with the SAI Gold/Black colour scheme and also a Guarder lower that has been stippled. I dont know how nice and straight it shoots but i can assume it does as the internals (apart from the Blowback unit) are all stock TM. Previously owned guns either sold or in the case of one of them given away (trust me, you didn't want it, it was shit!) TM MK23 SOCOM - Bought on whim, got all the bells and whistles, DTD Holster, TDC hop etc, never used or skirmished, but it shot damned straight though as TM as always. Would have kept it but couldn't justify it Armourer Works DS2011 SAI - Lovely looking gun, had the black/gold bling to go with my HPA'd SAI M4, just what i was looking for right! WRONG! I bought this originally to replace my ageing TM M92FS mentioned above, big mistake. Performance, accuracy and range was shocking, shots were going all sorts of directions with hardly any range despite adjusting the hop, meanwhile my older, battle worn TM M92FS was shooting straight like a dream. I used the AW DS2011 for about an hour before ditching it and going back to my TM M92FS. Sold it shortly afterwards. KSC M93R - I had two of these, planned to use them to dual wield and i did, well made, nice tight tolerances, mags that never leaked, average range and grouping. Cons, HEAVY, no holsters available other than crappy universal ones. Very picky about BBs, they either had to be absolutely f**king perfect (good brands like G&G and ASG Blasters were not good enough) or Japanese spec BBs which are slightly smaller. Oh and Gas hungry, sold them as well. WE M9 Samurai Edge - My first pistol when i started airsoft (oh back in the days), my mate told me "dont get WE, they're shit, get TM pistols instead". I wanted an RE themed pistol and a Samurai Edge from Kendo's Gun Shop in Raccoon City was what i wanted. Except the TM version was like £160 and the WE one was £120, no brainer right, i should have spent the extra £40 and gotten the TM. Nope, like an idiot i bought the WE one. Range - RUBBISH, Grouping - RUBBISH, hop up - RUBBISH and propriety, Quality of parts - RUBBISH, Recoil - Ok but i didn't know better, then i got and TM and then the WEs recoil got demoted to - RUBBISH, Gas Mags - RUBBISH, CO2 Mags - RUBBISH. Im sure you can see a trend about this gun, yeah it was plain GARBAGE! I hated it so much that i gave it away, yeah just like that, gave it away, it wasnt worth my time even making a classified ad to sell. I gave it to a mate and he has it now and i dont care. Thankfully though i now do have an RE theme'd M9 but its the ALBERT W model made by Blue Umbrella, not Kendo . On another note I am of course now aware that TM do the TM Hi Capa Gold Match which would match in colour my HPA'd SAI M4. I went to a shop and handled the Gold Match, nice gun and i am sure shoots dead straight, but by then i was used to the weight of the TM M9 which are heavier (as TM added weight in the grips) and my muscle memory was more attuned to the controls and handling of M9s. Because of the grief caused to me by AW and especially WE I created this lovely "how to choose an airsoft pistol" diagram:

    Holsters

    I second Tackle on getting a genuine Blackhawk Hokster. I bought a cheap Chinese clone of a Blackhawk Holster for an M9 and it kept dripping mags and the gun could just be pulled out with a little force. Got a real steel one and never had the mag issue and the gun is locked firmly in holster too.
  15. Been there twice in a month. Website is awful but better than what it used to be (think early 2000s myspace) Front of the store has tactical clothing and gear, back of the store (away from the public window) is where the magic happens. Its basically their stock room but more or less opened to customers to browse, pick up and buy. Its also one of those niche stores where if your looking for a certain part they might have it, a bit like Firesupport. Staff are friendly and their technician Jon knows his stuff.
