  1. @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.
  2. 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.
  3. @FreeFrag.UK have you considered the old para lids? Much comfier than a mk6 and I would say also a mk7.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. @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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. In the drone world (racing not commercial) it is widely regarded as one of the best for value for money. Plus if you have a good multimeter you can set the B6 to charge to exactly 4.2V per cell as sometimes the calibration is off straight out the box. I have one and rate it. Plus it’s future proof and can charge way more than a 2s lipo. Also storage charge balancing is another massive plus. Which I suspect not a lot of airsofters use. To the degradation of their battery life I may add
  13. Check the cut off lever hasn’t broken or that the trigger dolly isn’t sticking or some part has broken off. When you click it back to safe it might knock it away from the contacts.
  14. Bit of a long shot but if it’s the same diameter could something like this allow you to swop the thread connector out to allow it to fit as it comes with both options? https://www.softairgames.net/en/silencer/10641-silencer-14mm-cwccw-vltor-type-107mm-black-fma-fma-tb704.html
