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

  2. 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

      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. 😒

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

  3. 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

      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

  4. 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

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

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

  5. 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:

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

      PT247

      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! :-)

  7. 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:

      I also like the JB Weld putty.

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

  8. 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!

      Jez_Armstrong

      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...

  9. 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:

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

  11. 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:

      PayPal is legitimately my lifeline as of now! Iceland accept it online so I am able to live for a few more days :lol:

      When will a reliable courier come into existence? :D

    3. BigBlackGlock

      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 

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

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

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

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

  19. I just paid a lot more money that I would have liked for a suppressor and an EOTech variant.

    1. Ewan_Vs_Pigeon

      Ewan_Vs_Pigeon

      how much, if u dont mind?

    2. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Overall, about £140 for an Osprey suppressor w/ power up kit and an EOTech 553 (I like it more than the 551/2) D:

  20. Anyone got a cheap/spare buffer tube? Need one for a project (just the tube). Thank you!

      ^^^

      Agree totally. I was offered one awhile back but refused it. They can be great for small tubers who won't really be able to break into the market otherwise, but if you do get big then they take a fair amount of your earnings and freedom from you.

    3. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Oh I'm definitely grateful, just wouldn't call my channel huge :P if love to end the contract, but the didn't fancy replying to me when I asked what the status of my contract was around the ending period so I assume they just went ahead and renewed it... Absolute joke! Won't respond to anything now.

  22. Got my 8 inch WE PDW! Absolutely incredible gun :) What's the best weight BB for GBBRs?

    1. two_zero

      two_zero

      depends on FPS and personal preferences.

    2. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Approximately 330 - I just don't think 0.2 is the best option. Maybe 0.28? I want something that can go fairly far and stay accurate, but not something that drops after leaving the barrel

  23. Any experiences with the WE PDW?

    1. two_zero

      two_zero

      suppose to be decent

  24. About Hobbyking - I've heard a lot of cases where they don't add the UKARA number on the package but they've been delivered. How risky is it? Any misfortunes?

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Yeah I've heard that RIFs coming into the country should have the number on just in case. I'd like to order from there but just not too sure how it'll go if they don't put it there

    3. Sacarathe

      Sacarathe

      Actually, rather than "just in case", its a requirement, at least, if that is your only way of proving a defence, but, it's supposedly only a 'requirement' insofar as maintaining expediency.

       

      Customs should, if seizing the package, contact you requesting the same information.

    4. Hef Legend

      I tried to buy of them recently, they wouldn't ship a black WE makarov to the UK, but would ship the silver one. Ridiculous

      Years ago the pc funny was:

      turn on pc with no keyboard attached and it halts saying:

      KEYBOARD ERROR

      press F1 to resume

      WTF - how the f*ck do I press an imaginary F1 key ffs

    4. BigBlackGlock

      BigBlackGlock

      Ah, PCs and laptops have never been straight forward for me :) Always a problem... Just really hope this PS/2 adapter works. Wish there was another way to access the bios! Or change the boot order via command prompt...
