  1. Having played at a fair few sites I personally prefer longer games with several objectives. My personal favourite at the moment is combat south. Reasons for this are as follows. Central briefs that are listened to and the marshal will call players for not listening. Could it be a little shorter? Yes. But it is effective. Game details are briefed to each time separately prior to start of that iteration. Strangely and I cannot explain why the teams in my experience are always pretty evenly balanced but it’s the game designs and site layout that makes it work. Eg one life in a certain area then fall back to repeat for defenders with attackers having unlimited respawn. Responding to the original point about speedsoft style play I personally believe it would make little difference at the site because of how the games are structured. For example if one has to place several bombs along with clearing the village the defenders are already in situ. Running into that would make little difference as it needs to be cleared methodically. Even with both teams starting away from the objectives the design will have several areas that need to be held and more importantly secured for a set period so even if you get all of the locations initially holding them is a different matter.
  2. @Rogerborg luckily if you can find out what hop unit it copies action army have a range of vsr esq hop chambers now that may fit and from looking at them it would seem that they operate in a similar fashion. If they are as excellent as the vsr compatible version remains to be seen.
  3. @sonofsammo well if you like the kjw m700 I have one I am looking to offload as I prefer my VSR. It comes with a palmers pursuit regulator and has a tapped mag and just needs some fettling. New AA hop for it etc to bring it up to laser standard. If your interested.
  4. @Druid799 I agree with the humour disparity. Squad banter is relentless, ruthless, completely non pc and here is the but. Nobody cares; if your a good bloke/lass and pull your weight for the (sickening as it sounds) ‘team’. I do notice you don’t get into the let’s just say ‘interesting’ Company definitions of what’s ok in every Bn lol. Good old D Coy. End of the day opinions are like arseholes. Everyone has them. Do whatever works for you and assume nobody will agree and that’s the happy medium.
  5. I also am not impressed. They really do not feed well. But I will caveat this because I stripped all my midcaps down and cleaned them out and put Teflon dry lube into them and they seem a lot better. Time will tell. But I do not trust proballs now.
  6. @FreeFrag.UK have you considered the old para lids? Much comfier than a mk6 and I would say also a mk7.
  7. Which is exactly what the first link sends you to. With one minor exception. Officially (not saying your incorrect either as I do not know your local one) sanctioned disposal which #prisce asked for. Not knocking your local tip but...... if it’s mine? In a garrison town? They have no idea of half the things that pass through the gates lol
  8. By the gov advice follow this: https://www.gov.uk/hazardous-waste-disposal Or just do this to neutralise it so it’s not a hazard: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.ehow.co.uk/how_5962380_dispose-lipo-batteries.html or nail. It’s so fun.
  9. I use a 7.4v AK style lipo battery in mine. Fits perfectly. Ta da: https://www.fire-support.co.uk/category/battery-type-26-74v-li-po-ak-mp5k-stick/
  10. Coloured tape is a proper American thing. Never seen it on Brits tbh. The ANGLICO I worked with on Op HERRICK used green yellow and red to signify percentage of ammo left as a quick reference for the Pl Sgt. We carried the usual mags and took off eachother all the time and speed loaders and bandoleers as lighter and don’t really slow down fire fights as not everyone really fires at once. Unless a count for rapid is required. Looks ally tho.
  11. @Druid exactly how it should be. One bit of advice. Invest a few quid in one of these and check your cell voltages. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009LW48LK/ref=asc_df_B009LW48LK57969882/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22122&creativeASIN=B009LW48LK&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309816003291&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9991083186603753850&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006466&hvtargid=pla-561848290946 also if you know your not playing get your charger to discharge to 3.7v per cell. Lipos like it and last for ages if you do.
  12. I have never had a fire. But I charge and store correctly and use a cell checker after every charge and before. I also store drop voltage to 3.7v per cell after every game day and charge the night before. Safest way to be with lipos. Airsoft batteries are tiny in comparison. If they go I reckon a bag will save it. But I trust them with high performance batteries as well as do many others. They stop the spurting flames if they do catch. But it’s so unlikely for that to happen. Best advice I have is if it’s a squishy battery go to the garden put a nail through it and do not even attempt to do anything else. Be sensible, use a good charger and pay attention to voltage. All cells should charge to 4.2v. Anything else and your charger is in all honesty not fit for purpose. Put it this way. These are the differences in airsoft and high performance batteries. The square one is a 4s others are 3s. Lipo bags work on theses and are proven to.
  13. The lipo balance lead runs as follows by way of explanation. Common ground (normally black) then one red lead per cell. So for a 2S (7.4v) it’s three pins.
  14. As annoying as it is it is worth it. I mean my drone batteries are 95c 4S 1300mah and they drain to empty inbetween 2.5 and 3.5 min depending on how I’m flying. So they get a proper spanking and last a decent amount of time of approx 100-150 charges before they puff. I would be intrigued to put a cell checker on most of the lipos we use at a game day to see how bad they are (close to self destruction). Also it should go without saying invest in a lipo bag to charge and store them in but I say that to those that do not fully appreciate the dangers of dodgy batteries. I brought a second hand gun with two batteries. One was so bad the only thing that I could do was put a nail through it. But I guess the seller didn’t realise how bad it was. Terrifying.
