  1. Waiting for my PRS stock and then the .308 'DMR' build is complete 🤤 Looking awesome so far!

    1. AshOnSnow

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

    2. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      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

  2. 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 😅

    1. rocketdogbert

      rocketdogbert

      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

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

      Sitting by the window, barking at passing vans and tail wagging as if your waiting for your owner to come home. 🐶🐕🐕

      4 Parcels for me today! Tail is certainly wagging. 

  4. 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? 😂

      Yes you have - And the sooner you accept you're stuck for life, the happier the marriage!
       

      BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY - 
      What did ya buy?????

    3. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      I have quite the list! 

      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

    4. sonofsammo

      sonofsammo

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

       

  5. Cannot find a black GBB PRS stock for my life and it is driving me nuts 🤕 Where have they all gone 

  6. 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...

  7. Which delivery service do you send cans of green gas with? Received plenty via RM but I doubt they are actually allowed

      Are you sure?

      On the website it says no to both flammable liquids and compressed gases.

      Shrug I've had stuff ie Co2 from retailers through them and I've also sent Co2 capsules through them myself.

      It even says in the compressed gasses and liquids part 'These must be sent by 48 hiur service.)

       

      Had this argument with another forum member who refused to accept that part was even in there.

      That's only for the weapons and ammunition though; not gases

  8. Time to search for another Elcan SpectreDR 😫 I gotta stop selling them

    1. Monkman

      Love mine...great bit of kit!  Weighs a bit, but it can take a knock!

  9. Parcel prepped for delivery but I gotta wait until Monday for them to deliver 😭 Thanks Parcelforce

      Time to start a petition to make DPD the only delivery company in the world

    3. Gepard

      Gepard

      The other week my parcel was prepped on the Friday morning but ParcelForce don't deliver on Saturdays and it was a bank holiday Monday so it said that Tuesday was the earliest it could be delivered. 😒

    4. sonofsammo

      sonofsammo

      That's because DPD's tracking system actually works!!

  10. Anyone know how much modification is required to fit a PTS Masada handguard onto a WE MSK?

      I only ever put 7-8 mags through it max, then never used after that so it sat for a long time before I sold it so can't really comment on that side of things I'm afraid

    3. SeniorSpaz87

      SeniorSpaz87

      Bah, if you wanted that you should have just bought an XCR. Thats basically what it is.

      Not particularly a fan of it and I believe it is AEG  (I only use GBB). ACR stock is my favourite and the PTS rail reminds me of a 416 in terms of the shape. Got the MSK today, just waiting on the CQB barrel and rail now :) Very happy so far

  11. I have sold my last airsoft gun, I feel empty 😅 What now...

      I wish it were that simple but I usually build my guns rather than buy them, and the project must be an interesting one 😥 I have ran out of ideas, however, and gas blowbacks (only guns I am interested in) are limited in variety

    3. Duff

      Duff

      Take a GBB Tommy gun and a springer shotgun and build me and @L3wisD an Aliens Marines Plasma Rifle each! 🤗

    4. rocketdogbert

      rocketdogbert

      Buy a replica or de-activated real gun, and build it into a gbb.

  12. It has been years since I have owned an AEG but I am considering building one. Hmm, what to go for!

      Honestly, a TM MWS or GHK M4 :lol: My AEG desire has died already

    3. sonofsammo

      sonofsammo

      LMAO - I can't speak for the GHK M4, but I adore my MWS - it just feels so good to shoot.

    4. BigBlackGlock

      We shall see what happens :lol:

  13. Really want some extended TM G17 mags... Hmm, what to do!

      why did you go for TM ones? The WE versions are better, and I imagine cheaper

    3. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      They were £33 - cheapest I have ever seen them. I recently discovered silent fill o-rings and now much prefer TM mags over WE :) That and the TM ones have the extended baseplates and look a little cooler :lol:

    4. PT247

      PT247

      ahh awesome, think back when I had 50 round G18 mags they cost me nearly £50 so a proper bargain you had there! :-)

  14. Epoxy is probably my favourite thing right now, stuff works wonders!

      Duck! It has been a few years since we last spoke :lol: Hope all is well.

      I certainly did not expect to need as much stuff as I have for this hobby, bit it is all good fun and valuable in terms of experiences. There is certainly more to airsoft than initially thought! 

       

      I shall pick up some JB Weld eventually, I recall buying this 2 part epoxy for incredibly cheap about 2 years ago. It has been sitting in the "airsoft drawer" since about 3 days ago and I have just been repairing whatever I can find :lol:

    3. proffrink

      I also like the JB Weld putty.

      It seems I know what my next purchase will be :)

  15. Purchased Royal Mail Guaranteed before 1pm delivery three times now and not once has it ever arrived the next day, let alone before 1pm! Waste of money

      I realise this, I did not send it. I paid for the delivery cost of a gun I bought. He happened to send it via RM special delivery. I have only ever used PF48 when sending. Anyway, RM contacted me over messenger after an enquiry saying they found the parcel earlier and it is now here, thankfully. However, the item itself is severely not as described, time to have a chat with the seller!

      Oh man sounds like you got some fun ahead of you!

    4. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      The gun just will not cycle with any of the mags, very odd.

      He said he will accept a return but I will have to wait until the 21st so I may as well see if I can fix it.

      He will also send the parts he forgot to include in the meantime, just in case I do fix it but damn...

  16. I seem to make all my purchases at the end of the week, meaning I have to wait until about Monday before they are delivered, sad times! :(

      I don't spend more than I need on guns..

      It's the attachments and gear that f***s me.

      More like "do I really need that eotech clone?" *stares at the amount of red dots, iron sights and magnified optics in his box* "yeah, why not"

    3. LightningCh

      LightningCh

      I'm the same XD Really trying to pull in my spending now but then I'm looking at more stuff like "i want that, i want that, i want that, that, that, and this" lol

    4. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      I am able to limit my spending for maybe a month or two, but then all those efforts go to waste as a day will then come when I just spend way too much :lol:

  17. I cannot explain how much I miss my RATech/GHK M4 :( I need to get another sometime

  18. Nationwide constantly blocking my card when trying to order from Asia :ph34r: Now I have to wait for a new card, cheers guys.

      They did it back in December and after a call, they unblocked it and I was free to make the transaction. However, they said they won't unblock the card this time as they sent a new one without telling me. Gonna have to go without food for a while :lol:

      Ended up calling Parcelforce and telling them to get the driver back here! Sure enough, he arrived minutes later saying "he couldn't find the address". He was right outside :ph34r:

      Nope - UPS with a business account, only ones who won't regularly seize and destroy.

      I just had a Glock 19 safariland arrive and I haven't had police round. Maybe they've come up with the genius solution to check the UKARA register just to see if the recipient is already a registered skirmisher for buying RIFs.

    3. AshOnSnow

      AshOnSnow

      (To be honest, I'm terrified of armed police coming round - I'm worried they're get their facts wrong, try some forced entry, then shoot our dogs, let our brain damaged rescue cat out (who'll never find her way back even after 5 years here) and damage our antique piano during a search. Repairing a small scratch on that can cost in excess of £700.)

    4. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Apparently they like to arrive a week or so later to check up on you and the package. If it does happen then it's just likely to be two officers, according to those who have had the experience 

  22. Anyone happen to have 1 black Magpul Ranger Plate?

  23. Just bought a few GHK G5 bits from Samoon. Anyone know how long delivery to the UK takes?

  24. Anyone with a 3D printer able to create something relatively simple I have in mind? Please PM me :)

  25. My PDW build is coming together! More stuff arrived for it today
