    Sunday the 24 @ The Mall

    Let me know if you book in. We'll try and round up the news team to be there on the same day.

    You get used to it. It took me three or four visits to get a lay of the site. But yes. Your first visit, you'll get lost
  3. Yeah it's nuts. Like you say, it's cheaper when bought direct from new. If someone spunks the extra money on it just to cut out the waiting list, then they are even worse.

    Sunday the 24 @ The Mall

    Yeah the c&a basement has oil barrels, walls of old tyres and the zombie response van in it. Makes it much more fun to play in. I took some photos last time, hold on.. @Black_Ice931 and @E21A - it's definitely worth it. Even if you only go once, it's worth it for the change of scenery. Nothing comes close to exploring the shops, or flanking the other team by going down the escalator, through the loading bay area in the basement, navigating your way through the service corridors and coming up a pitch black staircase and taking them out from behind.
  5. Consider asking LCs engineering outpost. He's based just outside of Farnborough (Near Aldershot if you aren't familiar) https://www.facebook.com/lcsengineeringoutpost/ He makes barrels, barrel extensions, can shorten Barrels, repairs threads and can generally make any kind of custom thing. He's very sought after so he might have a queue..

    Manufacturer guide

    Either a G&G CM18 (Looks loads better than the CM16) or a Specna Arms SA-A** or SA-B**. You'll find they'll do you proud for long enough until you want to go to the next tier up Here's the CM18 btw.. much better looking than the raider: Then, the same gun with different furniture on:

    Specna Arms M4s

    SA-B12 Here. My main gun, and seems it'll still be that case for the foreseeable future. Externals are fantastic. Solid and well made. The stock motor is good and can handle 9.6nimh or 7.4 lipo well. Gearbox hasn't given me any troubles yet. I have changed the inner barrel and hop up (Prometheus EG, Purple rubber, Prowin). And added a better spring. Shoots really accurately with .30s and sits at a very consistent 328-330 on a chrono which I'm happy with. Other upgrades that I'd like, but not essential would be high torque motor, change battery connector to deans and gate Titan. But it's fine as is for now. There's a post here where I've uploaded loads of photos of mine, as well as a bit more write up. https://airsoft-forums.uk/topic/41130-gg-vs-valken-vs-specna-arms/?do=findComment&comment=306456
  8. Got a £500 PPI refund the other day and it's burning a hole in my pocket! Hopefully there's don't decent black Friday stuff up for grabs and bit all the that hasn't sold so far this year

    THE TM MWS thread

    This thread man I was watching youtube videos of MWS' until 1am because of this. Which sucks because I can't even afford a £30 springer at the moment.

    RAVEN EU Series G18 [Nuprol] vs WE G-Series G18c?

    Aye. I love that the slide is all: "SHIT! I'm a raven! Get me the hell outta here!"

    RAVEN EU Series G18 [Nuprol] vs WE G-Series G18c?

    If anyone fancies one of these on the cheap, Patrolbase have one in their boneyard for £60. http://www.patrolbase.co.uk/airsoft-boneyard/raven-eu-series-18-full-auto-gbb-pistol-by112-blue.htm#.WxU00tSLTDc Apparently works fine, apart from the slide trying it's best to escape from that frame

    Tippmann M4 not firing

    The noise and the recoil on the Tippmann is so fun. Loved mine Also, I'll echo the advice about greasing the buffer tube spring. Greased mine with Abbey LT2 Grease and the horrible "PHHWOOOAANNG" noise disappeared almost entirely. Much better. Americans and that will tell you that real ARs are supposed to have the twanging sound though. 😕

    Tippmann M4 not firing

    Hmmm.. could be the valve isn't getting the air. Can you split the recievers open and upload some photos of inside the upper. The charging handle, valve area. And pop your trigger assembly out and a photo of that too. Also, a photo of the recoil bolt in the buffer. If the recoil weight is protruding into the lower reciever too much the gun won't cycle.

    Gun picture thread

    Oh. My. Lord. This excites the little 14 year old me a lot. Airsoft WH40K bolt gun!
  19. Morning all! You may have seen the revolution in this thread, where we were fed up with having no access to the official AFUK Patch. I've taken it upon myself to try and knock something unofficial for us all to get our hands on. I've only got a couple of designs at the moment, but I'll update when I finish a new one as and when. These will be sold/distributed for ZERO profit for myself, with members only covering the cost of the patch and the postage. I've sent the designs I've got off to my patch lady and I'll let you all know the price once I hear from her. Design No.1 - Basic AFUK Patch £5.00 + £1.30 P&P I wanted something simple and basic - where anyone who looked at the patch could decipher what it was for (and hopefully lead new members here!). With the little BB being the dot in the website address. Ignore the fuzzy/embossed effect - this is me trying to give it more of a "Patch" look for you guys. The lettering will be embroidered on so it stands out a little. In Coyote and Green at the moment (With a Grey/black one for @Jedi_Master ) These will be around 3" x 2 1/4" (Or 78mm x 55mm). And I'm getting prices for Velcro backing and stitch/iron on. I've got something more similar to the UKAPU Patch on the go at the moment, as @Gepard requested something along these lines. Design No.2 - AFUK Mall Players Special Edition This one is for fun really for any AFUK Members who play the mall regularly. This will be 4.5" across (Or 115mm) I'll try and get the other design up this afternoon. But here you go @LightningCh, @Duff, @Gepard, @Robert James, @Albiscuit

    Dive style in reading did mine. They're only 15 minutes from eversley. https://www.divestyle.co.uk Could be done before a game day easily enough. You'll need a fill station though for them to attach to their big tank. I took my tank and then this fill station in and it was no problem https://moderncombatsports.co.uk/products/scuba-air-tank-refill-station Really though @MisterG - it's all too much of a faff. Save yourself the hassle. I'll give you £230 for the Tippmann
  21. I dunno if she does the rubber patches. Ballistic designs on the isle of man do though. https://www.instagram.com/ballisticdesignsisleofman/ Not sure what his minimum order is though to have him carve the moulds. Also, do you mean the MallRats patch? I've had a half finished version of MallTwats on my hard drive I've been meaning to finish for a while now.

    I'll be back 😎 Yeah the hand pumps are notoriously shite. You'll be at it for ages. Then you have to take breaks to stop it over heating. You're a Mall player aren't you? How local to reading are you? I can show you where to get your tanks filled and help you get the gun set up if you like? Oh and you play ambush eversley. I know the guy who runs that. If you get stuck with the gun (or want to sell it ) let me know and I'll come out and help.

    Tippmann M4 Flip-Up Sights

    This advert is COMPLETED!

    • For sale
    • Used

    Good Tippmann versions of Magpul Style BUIS. I got these a while back. They were sprayed a mottle green by the previous owner, but this should come off with a scrub. You'll also need the bolt & nuts to fix them to your gun. £10.00 all in.
