    Plate carrier in the gym!

    Funnily enough, I saw this on FB a while back. There is a company, Wodsox, selling what looks to be a 5.11 TT repro for fitness purposes (£100 - £120). IIRC, they even mentioned it isn't the 5.11 TT somewhere in the description or fine print.

    Ordered 1 30mm scope level... Received 8 🤔 I ain't complaining! Maybe I will just stick all 8 on a scope to make sure it is REALLY level 😅 As a bonus, that means 8 new Allen keys!
  3. Waiting for my PRS stock and then the .308 'DMR' build is complete 🤤 Looking awesome so far!

      Ooh pics?
      Where did you get the PRS from? Genuine or clone?

      Clone from SNITactical but had a couple issues with the order so far. Overcharged (~15% more than my order total 😒) and not sure if they are even sending the one I requested. Nearing 2 weeks since order was placed but no word on it being sent yet. May have to look elsewhere (typical as it is the last piece!).

      Pics will follow once it is all together 😁

      There are 3 generations of PRS if I remember correctly

    First proper go a stippling

    I would give my right (not left) testicle if someone could stipple a frame for me as shown below. Looking good for just starting out! I have seen some terrible stippling jobs in my time. Straight up looking like they just jabbed the frame with a knife a million times.

    Plate carrier in the gym!

    Suppose it is alright as long as it is black. If it were multicam or something, then it would be pretty weird. Could even stick ya hydration carrier on there 😏 Either way, it will look slightly odd to most. I wouldn't do it, personally. In a place of sweaty (wo)men in tight clothes/tank tops which show their nipples and grunting next to each other (the people, not the nipples), a plate carrier would be the least of my concerns 😂 The day I see a battle belt in place of a lifting belt, however, is the day I stand confused.
  6. Got a magazine that has been leaking for about 6 days now, still not empty. Part of me wants to fix it, but I also want to see how long it takes to empty 😅

      It will never be empty, as that would imply a vacuum.

       

      Once the internal pressure is the same as the external, no more anything will come out.

       

      However, if you then take it to a low pressure environment, whatever gas is in it will start to leak out again, and vice versa

  7. You never realise how many vans drive by your house until you have something out for delivery 🤔

    good eotech xps clone?

    To put another nail in the coffin, none. Bought a £70 XPS from ProAirsoftSupplies a year back, returned it within hours. Bought a similarly priced (like £100?) G&P EOTech with EOLAD unit (granted this was a 551, not XPS), same issues as below. Got that fancy XPS with all the updated markings and whatnot from DavesCustomAirsoft (like £160 for that and the magnifier, luckily I got it second hand) but was exactly the same. Stupidly dark, heavily reflecting rear lense (great if I needed to get a glimpse of myself mid game). It was also somewhat distorted (slightly oval, rather than circle) with ghosting on pretty much every setting. Even the lowest brightness had it, just very faintly. Moral of the story: Airsoft EOTechs are quite possibly the worst optics you can get. Which sucks because they are my favourite aesthetically.

    HUGE Dilemma here...

    It is a flashy Glock, keep it flashy. If you wanted it to look basic, sell it and buy the average Glock (as above). But change the barrel to silver to match that magwell and the trigger. The gold is just completely random. The silver magwell also hides the slightly dodgy stippling at the bottom (doesn't match the rest above it). I just really prefer silver barrels/bolts on guns over gold or black. It is still flashy, but still 'classy'. Just my opinion, of course. Do whichever you prefer! It is yours, afterall.

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    The list of all purchases has been made! - PTS Mega Arms MML Maten .308 GBBR - 3 additional magazines (they weigh ~856g each 😣) - Magpul MVG (previously mentioned here) - PRS stock (GBB Version) - Extended PRS/MOE/CTR/UBR butt pad - Madbull OSS BPR2 suppressor (matches the shape and diameter of my handguard!) - Leupold 3.5-9x50mm (30mm tube) scope (repro) - Geissele 30mm scope rings/mount (repro) - 50mm sunshade (God knows if this will fit the scope...) - 30mm scope mounted level (there is already one in the mount but it looks cool) - Harris bipod (repro) - M-Lok adapter for Harris bipods - M-Lok rail segment (won't be used though) - Wrench to remove the current buffer tube I am pretty sure I am missing something but God knows what. Also got a few small things to get, such as flip up lense covers for the scope. Any additional suggestions are also welcome. Done nothing internally, just making it look good for now 😅 I never seem to skirmish them anymore. I do not have pictures of all this because about 70% of it is still in transit, but I will take some once the family is all together. For now, you can look at the beautiful receiver 😅 I will note that the paint seems rather thin/easily chipped, however. Might need a cerakote job. Here you are, @sonofsammo!
  11. So, I sell all my airsoft stuff to quit and then spend £1k on a RIF stuff 2 weeks later. Why am I like this? Will it ever end? 😂

      Would have to put it in the WHYJB thread as I am not sure how long comments can be here.

       

      I shall compose said list fairly soon

      I guessed it would be a decent list at 1K - good effort that man! 😄

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Didn't get much of a look at it before selling unfortunately but the pipe looks to just be a piece of cord, no way of turning it into a drinking tube or anything. Can't comment on the comms, sorry!

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Bought a TMC Halo mask and some TMC goggles but didn't realise the mask required a helmet until after it had been shipped. Could probably have DIY'd a strap to be fair. Looks very cool though! Bit heavy (500g) and feels like you are wearing an S10 without filters, so I suppose not particularly comfortable. Doesn't have any use, purely cosmetic. I assume the rest of the tube goes into a backpack or something but as mentioned, it has no actual use. Looks to be pretty well put together but won't get the chance to use it properly. Anyway, sold it 20 mins after it arrived as I don't use a helmet. Goggles are still available if anyone is interested 😂Bought them to compliment the mask but no use for them now. Would say the mask is fairly overpriced for what it is though. Probably better off buying a cheap 3M mask and bolting bits to it lol.

    Bells’n’whistles a custom does not make .

    I have just read the word "custom" and said it in my head so many times that it no longer sounds like a real word. Why have you done this to me 😲 But ye, agreed. Fair enough you can call it a package because that is essentially what it is, but custom would involve actual effort being put into it to make something truly custom, in my opinion. Saying a gun is custom because it now has a scope and bipod is like adding water to a glass and calling that custom. woah guyz I customizd mah m4 wiv a silencer n poorly sprayd it wiv a scrim net on top! Wot u fink of ma loadout? Show me ur setupz (even tho I dont actually care, I just wont u 2 c my custom m4)!

    Warrior plate carriers - DCS v Raptor

    Had a DCS and bloody hell, I swear I could fit two of myself in there. Shouldn't have any issue with that one! Quite comfortable too, kinda like a tactical hug.

    Bought a Magpul M-lok MVG, love this style of grip. You can also see my budget extended Allen key used to install it. Works flawlessly.

    PayPal alternatives?

    Yeah that would be me. They have sent me some seemingly stupid questions such as: "Why have you made the payment?" (Oh I dunno, maybe because they won't give me their products for free?) "What have you ordered?" (They asked this even though they literally have a list of what I ordered above the questions) Etc... Funniest question was "What's your relation to 'Nico'?" (I suppose the discount code "NICO-WEAPON762" sounds a bit shady, at best 😂) They're also asking for a receipt of the transaction, which is beyond stupid considering they're preventing the payment from going through, thus preventing the sale and ultimately a receipt... If the issue does not get resolved, my account will be terminated, along with my funds. They have limited my account so I cannot withdraw the money and whatnot in the meantime. Alex May (Foundry Airsoft) said a similar situation happened to his mate, in which he lost his account and about £1k (which he is still trying to get back after a year). Just to reiterate, all I ordered was a dummy/prop TMC Halo mask and some goggles for eye protection. Like I said in that FB post, the US Govt has an issue with me buying those whilst they sell ammo next to the ketchup in Wal-Mart. Why does the US Govt even care about a European transaction? PayPal is American but Jesus, it isn't like I have ordered a WMD. God knows what is going to happen but most of my money is in PayPal (as I use it very frequently), so I am a bit worried!
  18. Cannot find a black GBB PRS stock for my life and it is driving me nuts 🤕 Where have they all gone

    DPM (I think) and ........?

    From a purely cosmetic stance, I like either OD or black with DPM.
  20. BigBlackGlock

    Hate it with a passion.

    I DESPISE the Beretta ARX 160. One if the ugliest guns I have ever seen, particularly the area in front of the magwell (Is that meant to be some sort of built in angled grip? Wtf). Absolutely hate it. If a gun could eat too much, this would be it.
  21. So, I sold the majority of my airsoft stuff and now it feels like there is a void, which I want to fill with more airsoft stuff. Damn it.

      You can definitely buy my G39C - I'd feel like I was doing you a favour and helping to fill that Airsoft shaped space in your life...

    AEG or GBBR, that old chestnut!

    TM recoil? Got a few interesting variants like the HK417, SCAR H, etc... Bit more fun than your average AEG I suppose. Could fund it through selling the MWS. No point keeping it if it won't get used!

    The 'What have you done' Thread

    Had to remove all the fill valves from my PTS gas mags before shipping. Unfortunately, that meant entirely disassembling all 9 magazines, except for the release valves. They don't make it easy... Then they all went back together without the fill valves installed.
