  1. Victory. Finally managed to get the rounded out screw from my kwa erg rail with an extractor. Now to figure out what size this little bugger is

      Honestly. Not a scooby

      The standard pitch for M3 is coarse which is 1.5mm. If you measure from dip to dip in the thread i.e. measure the very bottom of the thread (the groove) to the very bottom of the next thread along the shaft. From bottom of groove to bottom of groove it should be 1.5mm. Chances are that is a standard thread as the fine thread (which is 1.25mm pitch) are used less all round.

      checked the measurements with a chart on a supplier and everything seems to match up to being coarse threaded. on a m3 8mm bolt it says there should be about a 0.7mm distance between the threads which there is. So fingers crossed. Ordered 6 in both m3 and m4 sizing's just in case.

  2. Any suggestions for removing 'rounded' out and possibly cross threaded bolts from a handguard. It will not budge and not a clue what to do, what size to replace it with if i ever get it out.

      rocketdogbert

      What sort of bolts, hex head?

       

      If so, hammer torx into them to get them out if you don’t have an extractor set

    2. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      Yeah they are the hex/Allen bolts. Figured with no airsoft , it was time to give my kwa erg a good clean up. Discovered the previous owner had Mullered one of the rail screws. Will try a Torx. Have also ordered a extractor set just incase.

      Look up "Grabit" I had a stripped screw head that I couldnt get out even when supergluing the alan key to the screw. The Bit removed the screw easily.

  3. Hoping to get out for a game on Sunday  before the inevitable lockdown happens. Plan to rock the ics ape and asg mk23 now everything’s working as it should

  4. Thinking of jazzing you my ics cxp ape. Can’t decide. Bipod or new suppressor for it.

      I slid into a bunker and caught my shin on a hidden tree stump. Bruised the leg good and proper but didn’t notice the tear until u got home. Good ‘L shaped’ tear a couple of inches in each direction. Doesn’t look like anywhere has the leo kholer ones in stock anymore either :(

    3. Impulse

      Impulse

      At least that sounds fixable. Any good with a needle and thread? (could sew some fabric on the inside to reinforce it)

    4. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      Can get around one. Just means a weak spot in the trousers from now on. Probably a trip to a surplus store at some point for a new set of trousers and Ubacs of some sort

  6. Dragging my somewhat flu ridden backside out for some much needed airsoft action tomorrow.

      I’m down with that as long as I get the 2 weeks of self isolation. Yup 2 weeks off work with beer, pizza and chill time. 

  7. Off to drop the the cxp Ape in for some much needed tlc. at Combay Action Games shop. New motor and lord knows what else is needed to get her back to her best. 

  8. Any suggestions for a decent all year round pistol. Finding my green gas pistols just can’t cut it this time of year so thinking maybe c02. Budget about £150 including extra mag

      Keep your pistol mags in a lined pouch with a pocket hand-warmer if it's very cold.

      @ghostwalker fixing a MK23 feeding issue is a piece of cake.

      All you need to do is a light file job to the feed lips. Plenty of guides on the internet, even Noviboii made a video on it (on Vimeo, not YT, for some obscure reason). less than 30 seconds for 2 mags.

       

      STOCK TM GBBs should be the way to go, plastic slides means more gas efficiency and less propellant used to cycle the whole thing, which results in less cooldown (given you aren't speedsofting your way through the day, in that case nothing beats a HPA tap). Placing your magazines closer to your body (in pockets for example) could also work.

    4. ghostwalker

      @Skara @sonofsammo Think after much tinkering today i might finally have the asg mk23 working half way decently. Tried the filing down thing from Novs video but it didn't appear to be the fix. Then saw in another video that the little plastic rod that 'picks the bb up from the mag and into the hop' sometimes catches on the rubber valve infront of the feed lips. Filed it back a bit and hey presto.  It actually managed 10 rounds in a row!

  9. Looks like my much loved ics cxp ape is in need of some time with the tech. Full auto not engaging properly and sticking in semi. Lots of copper flecks on the outside of the motor and inside of the grip. :(

    1. Asomodai

      Asomodai

      Time for some upgrades whilst you are at it! 

       

      The stock motor is pretty anaemic to be honest. 

    2. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      If I do much it would only be the repairs and maybe a better motor. I can’t really fault mine other than that. 

  10. new site and new adventures tomorrow. Going to try out scorpion airsoft at the old hospital west raynham. Cqb chaos. 

    1. djben9

      djben9

      What was it like?, about an hours drive for me but missing CQB

    2. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      Mixed feelings. Will write a site review up later for it. For a once or twice a year site great. But for a regular cqb fix I would use battlestations at snetterton. 

    3. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      @djben9 posted up my thoughts etc in the airsoft sites section. If you want to know more give me a shout

  11. 6 weeks with no airsoft. Tomorrow that’s all over. Heading down to blow off some steam and clear the cobwebs at Combat Action Games

      Steam powered airsoft guns...

      Well @Rogerborg it would be more reliable than my gbb pistol on cold wet days like yesterday I guess.

      @Albiscuit i did a review of scorpion airsoft in west raynham in the sites section (you asked about it back in september)

  12. That feeling when your body starts to remind you that it’s getting old and had years of abuse. Might be time to start thinking about role change as my left knee is shot to hell. 

  13. any of you fine folks played at Scorpion Airsoft at the old hospital west raynham?

      I’m heading there on November 17th for their Sunday game day. Looks a decent site just wondered if anyone had played it. 

    3. Albiscuit

      I had no idea it existed, now I really want to go, but a bit too far for me unless I do an overnighter! Can you put a review up afterwards please??

    4. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      will try to remember to. I think airsoftcamman on YouTube may have some gameplay from there on one of his videos. Not 100% sure 

  14. is silicone grease ok to use for lubricating the slides and moving parts on gas blowback pistols?

     

  15. oh no. That feeling when your amazon delivery is out and you get a notification it’s being delivered by my herpes.

      Aaaaahh yes my herpes that shining light of courier services ! 

      Had a parcel being delivered by them a few wks ago as I was away over night I logged in and stipulated ‘leave with neighbor’ (I have wonderful retired neighbors , there both deaf as a post and blind as a bat so perfect Airsoft neighbors !) any hoo get a txt saying “left in designated safe place , the porch” only problem there I don’t have a porch , I do have an angled section of roofing that sticks out about 3ft above the front door but no walls to it so definitely NOT a porch , so in the picture he so kindly sent me you can see said parcel leaning up against my front door in plain view for all to see! 🤬🤦‍♂️🤬

      Last delivery by Hermes, person turned up in a knackered old fiesta..didn't bother with ringing the bell..found my package thrown over side door to the garden by my garage.  All recorded on cctv.  Complaint sent..not heard a thing back.  (3 months and waiting...guess an apology got lost in the mail..)  :)

    4. Druid799

      Druid799

      I didn’t bother trying to complain to herpes I just put a poor review on millets website when it asked me to review my buying experience AND was contacted by there customer care team very next morning ! After back and fouring with some Doris on there team I got a £10 voucher as an apology for poor customer service .👍

  16. Question to the admins on here. I am taking part in a charity event for the Royal British Legion Industries. Would it be ok to post about it with a fundraising link in the general section?

    1. proffrink
    2. Prisce

      Prisce

      I think the last time someone did something similar they posted a Link and a thread about why and what it was in the Off topic section. 

    3. Jedi_Master

      Jedi_Master

      Yes, I think that would be acceptable.  Create a new topic in the "Off Topic" section, give details of the event and who the charity is for, etc.  Adding a link to the rbli website would be useful for background context.  

  17. Does anyone have any recommendations for a short dot sight. Thinking the asg one. But open to suggestion

      Vision King is good if your on a small budget 

  18. Good news this morning. 

    Filed a PayPal case against Ruoskygear on aliexpress for failing to send the fma helmet and got an email today to say a full PayPal refund is being issued! Offsets the £40 I paid for one off patrolbase in the end 

    1. Rogerborg

      Rogerborg

      Nice one.  I love PayPal for this, and just fire up a dispute 5 minutes after the promised delivery date now.

  19. Fancy dress airsoft at Combat Action Games. 80’s  theme. So no plate carrier etc. Gonna try and pull off something resembling slash from GnR. Guitar melee kills anyone

      Don't cross the streams. Need a proton blaster aeg

  20. 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.

      Can’t cancel the order as they have declared it as shipped. Also can’t open a disputed until 10 days after it’s marked as shipped. 

    3. Lozart

      Lozart

      Gutted for you mate. That's the one time that AliExpress is an issue, when it goes wrong!

      Just FYI, the FMA Unity Tactical style helmet adaptors won't work on an Exfil helmet. I had to blag the adaptor from Unity Tactical themselves which cost an arm and a leg for two little bits of metal!

    4. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      They the adapters for things like sordins and contacts headsets? If so I’m ok as I run a throat mic with security style ear piece. 

  21. so i got a multicam plate carrier and battlebelt with a helmet on the way. Question is what camo to get. Multicam, mc tropic, mc black, atacs or something else. Cant decide.

      Well that stung @Lozart but £140 later and i have the leo kholer trousers and ubacs coming to me.

    4. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      should go well with the Multicam plate carrier and battle belt, along with the helmet with multicam cover (if aliexpress ever sip it). Oooooh and got me a nice Dynatex timed bfg for some woodland chaos too

  22. Uh oh. Might be joining the multiglam brigade. Warrior cpc,pathfinder chest rig, solo international belt with assorted extra pouches and warrior universal pistol holster. All for £160. I think I might have to bite. 

  23. That moment when you get some unexpected money and you have to decide. New warrior recon/pathfinder with all the bells and whistles and a bfg. Or a new rif.

      NEED ? What is this word ? 

    4. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      Looks like new kit, bfg and mags for my erg are in the cards. Finally trade up from the 30/60’s to 30/120 mags. Just need a decent woodland grenade now. 

  24. Thought of the day. 

    For the occasional (fortnightly) average joe skirmisher. Is the extra money for something like warrior gear really worth it over your 8fields, tmc etc. 

    Looking at a new loadout for myself and considering a od warrior pathfinder/plate carrier combo. 

    1. heroshark

      heroshark

      depends what your bothered by eg colours of camo if you are getting a camo one . Also if you are gonna stick with it . I found the cheap stuff perfectly serviceable. 

       

    2. ghostwalker

      ghostwalker

      I tend to switch between loadouts. Been running about in my tears of the sun impression for best part of a year. Mix in my more pmc black/tan loadout when playing non woodland or cqb 

    3. heroshark

      heroshark

      well I'd go cheap then if You are not gonna stick with it

       

  25. What’s people’s the best helmet with bang for your buck. Thinking bump style helmet.

      Just feels super cheap, you can bend the helmet easy.

    4. Druid799

      Druid799

      Ok fair enough , I can vouch they are strong enough to protect from an impact though after having half a brick knocked out of 1st floor window (a derelict farm house at the old pathfinder site Swansea valley) bounce of one I was wearing , freely admit I did see stars AND had a killer headache for a good few hrs afterward but I was ok and the helmet wasn’t even cracked , you could see white staring in the plastic from the impact but no cracking .👍
