  1. Fortunately my streak seems to be over. Touch wood. But in the 4 game days i played between october and mid january i managed to. Strip the piston on my ics cxp ape. Break the nozzle on my ics ble xae Go through a nightmare trouble shoot and repair cycle on a KWA pts rm4 erg that ended up being a busted motor Burn out the mosfet in a ics mars (sss) sbr. They all seem to be up and running now and theres about a £200 dent in my bank balance. So hopefully thats the run of breaks over.
  2. my PTS KWA ERG lives once more. Talk about a pain to sort in the end. Intermittent fault making it worse.  

    All new connectors. Still not properly fixed. 

    Completely rewired. Still not fixed. 

    New motor. Eureka finally rocking like it should. £110 on repairs ouch.

      It was second hand. Just a few years old and had trouble figuring out what was causing the fault. But it ran flawlessly today

      Things like this do my swede in ! 🤬

      hence I only buy 2nd hand these days from guys I know off from there online foot print , don’t know you or of you ? Then sorry I ain’t buying from you .

      In fairness @Druid799 it was working fine for about 6 months. Then just after Xmas it developed an intermittent fault that was really awkward to diagnose. Think the motor was just knackered, it just seemed more like to be a connector/contact wiring issue as it was so random. 

  3. Depends on the rif i'm using If i am out with either of my ics rifles its 5x 300 bb t mags, bb bag with about 3000 in and 2 25bb mags for ics ble and/or 2x 25 bb mags for asg mk23. If it's my KWA/Pts erg then its 7x 60 bb mags and a nuprol 2000bb speed loader along with the above mentioned pistols. It shows how much psychology plays though. I can usually burn through a good 2 high caps playing the same game i would only use 2 or 3 60bb mags in. Subconsciously i thing its a case of knowing your much more limited with the erg 60bb mags.
  4. Out of curiosity have your tried looking at 'the draft club' range of bb's. I have been running their .28's for the last year and not noticed any issues over that time.Though i notice they seem to have changed marketing tact and done away with their 'rewards' scheme
  5. Ics cxp ape and kwa erg both back up and running thanks to Sean at Combat Action Games. Ape needed a new piston and the erg wasn’t the trigger mech after all. Just a faulty connector. 

    Happy days and only £25 out of pocket. 

    Ics mars needs proper surgery though as main board is fried. 

  6. Cant believe my run of bad luck. 

    Ics cxp ape - piston stripped a few months ago. 

    2 weeks ago trigger mech fried on my kwa erg. 

    Today everything fine. Get home ics mars starts running away on full auto and won’t stop unless the battery is disconnected. 

    All 3 primaries knackered

      That’s part of the hobby. 


      Now you have the fun of fixing them.

    3. Asomodai


      The ape is an easy fix considering its a split gearbox. Get a new piston and install it, wont take more then 20 minutes first time.

      welcome to airsoft, its why i have so many guns- i can generally keep 1 or 2 going at any one time :P

  7. Tired, bruised, aching all over. I think that’s a sign of a good days airsoft having been had. 

    1. Monkman


      Same, but will keep going as long as I can....Makes me feel alive and still gets the blood pumping!  "They can only take my gun from my cold, dead hands"  :)

    2. ghostwalker


      They ain’t ever taking mine. That’s what super glue was invented for. Though they can take the cxp ape seeing as it stripped its piston just before the final big fight for Main Street at pleasurewood hills. 

  8. Tick tick watching the clock. One more work shift tomorrow then Operation Plastic Storm and 200 players descending on the Pleasurewood Hills theme Park for a day of airsoft. 

  9. Best suggestions for a sub £100 pistol. Preferably suitable for winter too and maybe an extra mag. Thinking the asg mk23. Any other good suggestions ?

      Go with a CYMA AEP with a Lipo mod. Works all year around with no faffing around with C02 unreliability. MK23 is a good choice for woodland but you wont be able to fire it particularly fast in close combat due to the long trigger pull. At least with the AEP you'll have full auto if you need it. 

    3. PT247


      as Asomodai stated, it is a slow firing gun. If you are indoors cool down won't really be as bad in winter as outdoors so a GBB may be viable. If on a budget have you considered the cost of mags and gas? 

    4. ghostwalker


      I have picked up the asg mk23 with an extra mag to use for woodland. Also replaced the nozzle on my ics ble xae as I think it’s what was causing issues and plan to use that for cqb. 

      Roll on Sunday. Airsoft in a theme park with 200+ players and a death train armed with a mini gun 

  10. After McGyver-zing a mollie holder for my AI burst xl grenade. Time to put it through its paces in woodland airsoft today. 

  11. woo hoo. Missed the last Combat Action Games event at the pleasurewood hills theme park. Not missing the next one in november though. Airsoft in a themepark

      Check out there facebook page, they update it regularly with events/game-days

      As I understand it. It will be in 11-11-18. 

  12. welcome to the sticksville airsoft society lol. My top local sites are Combat Action Games for woodland Battle Stations at snetterton for a bit of cqb. I have played combat thetford and i think their days can vary like the wind. But then most sites are like that depending on who and how organised. I haven't played Battleground or tuddenham yet so cant comment on those. Skirmish at plumstead used to be really good but it's changed a lot. Finally there i a small site at RAF WEST RAYNHAM called scorpion airsoft. Want to try it but lately they seem to have a lot of DofE stuff going on and low numbers. So its on the list. Shops wise you have shops at Combat thetford and Battlestations. OR for a full shop there is the Combat Action Games shop in Norwich and Sean the tech there is a top guy. There is also Hoopers surplus in central norwich that is great for kit and surplus and he also offers a 10% discount to airsofters and ex military folks. If you want a in game looksie around some of the local sites. Check out AirsoftCamMan, Killfisher and Airsoft Ed on youtube as they all play most of the local sites.
  13. See I like the way Combat Action Games starts the day. Usually the first 2 games are a attack/defend game that gets flipped. It gets new players into the idea of shooting and getting shot and also gives the marshalls a chance to view how the teams balance out. If one team gets absolutely decimated, it results in a few of the more experienced players getting swapped about to rebalance the teams. Then the rest of the day is set out to whatever the theme is. Skirmish, milsim light etc. Its funny though as the winner of the timed opening games nearly always opts for the defend side of games.
  14. anyone recommend a relatively cheap and cheerful rifle torch


    1. Rogerborg


      £10 cheap enough?  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/650nm-Red-Dot-Laser-sight-Combo-w-CREE-LED-Flashlight-Light-Torch-UK-BIG-SALE/113104483369?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


      Nice and compact, fits on a pistol or a rifle.  On/off switch (no strobe mode or multiple brightness nonsense to get in the way), or an optional momentary pressure switch.  Has a fairly bright torch, or a laser, or even both together if you're feeling kinky.


      Comes with 2 small li-ion batteries (16340's, I think).  You'll need to buy a generic charger for 3.7V lithiums, one with a sliding contact that can charge various lengths of batteries.  Typically sold as 18650 / 18450 chargers.


      But £10 for the basic unit is a decent deal.

    2. Gepard


      I've been using an ultrafire wf-502b for a couple years now. 3 brightness settings plus a strobe. Gets me through the rare night game anyway. Fits in all of my mounts. 

    3. tasum


      I went for your recommendation Rogerborg, thanks to the op and to you for the linky :)

  15. depending on the distance you want to go. Battlestations activities do saturday games and also have a members scheme that usually runs some saturdays,
