  1. Great looking rifle! Thanks to everyone for the advice but this is probably what I'll end up doing to mine. Just a little worried about the back sling loop holding but it should be ok if that's what most people seem to do to traditional aks anyway
  2. Hi all, as the title suggests I'm looking for a sling for my E&L akm, preferably one that wraps around the wrist of the stock as I'm not too sure about the metal loop at the end, and I want a quality sling that won't break. What should I look for/ any suggestions in particular? Thanks in advance
  3. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these. They seem really good from videos in terms of having much better consistency over more shots, being the key advantage, but also they can hold 350 rounds and supposedly fire most of them in one fill of gas. If anyone has any experience and advice about these, I would greatly appreciate it, as I think it would work really well with my already quite efficient we msk, but I'm not prepared to take a £130 risk. Thanks

    Selling my HK417 as I've never got round to fielding it even though I've had it for a year. Reason being I just prefer my Masada/ACR and so can no longer justify keeping this as a wall hanger. Used condition, see all the images for minor cosmetic damage/paint wear. To my knowledge there was only one previous owner, who said he fielded it once or twice. I have used it for plinking, but the internals seem to be holding up fine. Important to note that the inner barrel only extends to the end of the handguard, which is from TM, as the gun used to be the short variant before I bought it, so the longer outer barrel is due to the outerbarrel extension that came with it. 4 of the 5 magazines work perfectly, but one leaks a lot of gas from the bottom fill valve, which I assume is due to an old O-ring, that can be easily replaced. In the photos, this is the magazine with the damaged baseplate. The gun has been upgraded with a heavy buffer to increase the recoil, which is awesome, and as you can see it comes with the original box, manual, long hop up adjustment allen key, 5 mags, the red dot 'holographic sight' and a flip to side 3x magnifier. Note, the 3x magnifier does not align perfectly with the holographic sight. Also note that the contents in the box that seem loose in the image will be packed securely. The RIF feels and sounds amazing, this is a gun that I am sad to see go, but hopefully it will find a new home. In some of the images, another optic can be seen, but the only optics that are supplied with the gun are the 'holographic sight' and the 3x flip to side magnifier that can be seen together. With regards to FPS, this gun has an adjustable nozzle, it is plastic but FPS can range from 150 - 600 depending on how much gas you let through. IIRC it can be adjusted using the long allen key or potentially another one, by inserting the allen key through the nozzle and turning it one way or the other, so FPS rules at your field should be no problem, no matter the weather or the gas you use. I would prefer pick up, but if the buyer wants the gun posted they will have to pay it themselves, but a word of warning, it will be expensive, I will update when I have found out how much it is. EDIT: the cheapest postage I have found for this is parcelforce express 48. It costs £16.62

    I am selling my beloved Well MB4403D Tokyo Marui AWS clone to fund a recent SRS purchase I've made. I have had it for 4 years, and it is still going strong, although I've only skirmished it once, as I've used it more for target practise than anything else. It comes with: A PDI 6.01 raven 554mm barrel An Airsoft Pro aluminium loading plate A maple leaf hop up bucking (75 degree iirc, and before they released the current autobot/decepticon line) A Bushnell clone 6-24x50 scope which gives a very large FOV, crisp image, and has red and green reticles (battery included) Two 40 round mags, one is the original Well magazine, the other is a TM mag, both work I've also thrown in a 300fps spring which I bought in japan, never used, but I won't need it again so consider it a freebie Silencer adaptor for 14mm threads. Hard gun box with keys and pin codes, including instructions to change pin Original takedown long allen key Original flash hider - which no longer fits because the inner barrel is too long The replica itself - obviously NOTE: silencer and bipod not included, they are only shown for photographic purposes It is in full working conditions, but it is not without issues, all of which I will mention: The mag release spring has weakened over time, so I have stuffed some newspaper behind the mag release lever that pushes it forward, providing extra tension, so that this part still works fine. This does still work but I'm sure it's more desirable to just get a new spring. Until then though, this works. The screw that holds together the hop up adjustment mechanism was made of pot metal and wore down over time so I have replaced it with a steel/aluminium screw and this has held together well. The screws holding the rail section to the receiver sometimes come loose, but this can be fixed by using loctite. Without a suppressor, the inner barrel pokes out of the end. As you can see these are all minor issues that don't require much money or work at all to fix if they haven't already been fixed. The gun was originally orange, but I have spray painted it matte black, and it looks way way better in person than in the photos I have uploaded, of course it was spray painted with layers, there are no areas of largely deposited paint like on a bad paint job, and the gun was completely disassembled prior to painting it. It shoots consistently at 410 fps, the last 5 readings I got prior to posting this were 409.9, 410.4, 410.6, 407.9 and 411.1 with a 0.2g bb. This is because I am still using the stock spring which has evidently weakened over time from its original 430fps, but this is a £10 upgrade that can easily be made. I am located in London, and I will do collection only, as this is a large gun with a larger box to hold it, so postage is not viable unless the buyer pays it, but be warned it will be very expensive. I would prefer cash in hand to paypal, but PM me for any questions. NOTE: this ad was listed as completed/sold before, but this is just because I went on holiday and didn't want anyone thinking I could ship it while in another country. Would be willing to swap for a good gbb pistol or gbb/electric rifle as I have already replaced this with another springer.

  7. Hi all, I'm travelling to Italy by car in a week's time, but have only just made the decision that I wanna take my SRS with me. I know about FPS laws in the countries I'll be travelling through, so that's not an issue, but I'm a bit concerned about the Eurotunnel/Le Shuttle rules for transporting airsoft guns, and about travelling through Switzerland. I'll be contacting the company tomorrow, but if anyone has any experience travelling to france using Le Shuttle that would be helpful. As for Switzerland, I've read:"The importation of airsoft firearms is restricted to companies and individuals who hold weapons import licences. Private individuals can apply for a permit to import up to three firearms which is valid for six months." But I'm not sure if travelling through Switzerland counts as importation. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

  11. It could be the notches on the front sight post end of the outer barrel catching on to the inner portion of the slide. I had a similar issue with a 1911 before, and I'm pretty sure if you strip the gun down, there will be some wear on the barrel or the gun at this point. This could be due to slight differences in compatibility and design. Personally, I ground down a bit from my outer barrel and that worked for me, but you have to be careful because it's not likely to be metal of the highest quality, and you could risk the integrity of the barrel. Once again, check to see if this is indeed your problem before taking any drastic actions, I've just had similar issues with 1911s in the past when switching slides around and the like. If it sticks in the fully open position, it could be that the slide is too light (due to being skeletonised), and the recoil spring is throwing it too far backwards, so the notches on the outer barrel get caught on the slide. In the photos attached, the points I've drawn arrows to usually get caught if the notch on the inner portion of the slide catches on the notches of the outer barrel when the slide is thrown too far back/compatibility is an issue. This might not be your issue, but I've seen it before.
  12. Very well put. I guess this is something else that needs to be brought up along with the GBB/HPA issues, if they'll bother to listen at all.
  13. Oh now I get it. Sorry, it looks like I was interpreting it one way, and not in the literal sense of what it said "only a small plastic missile." I don't see anywhere where it says "per pull of the trigger" though. I know I'm asking a lot here but can you explain this to me? Otherwise all auto firing replicas would be banned as well (or am I wrong here again?) Yet they've made it clear that auto firing replicas can fire up to 1.3J, so they clearly don't mean to say that a replica that fires more than one plastic projectile per trigger pull is not an airsoft gun. Regardless, this thread is starting to veer off course, but the short answer is that Sacarthe is right, whether or not the gun was considered as an airsoft replica before, it definitely isn't now. Whether it falls in the category of air rifle or section 5, I don't know, but it's not worth the risk, especially when the general public and or jury will not differentiate between an airsoft gun and a real gun.
  14. I was asking you which part of the replica infringes this statement, please read that sentence again and answer it properly, don't just reiterate the same point. I realised that you were saying there's an issue, I want to know what exactly that is. What evidence is there to show that it wasn't designed to discharge only a small plastic missile? Enlightening response there. Care to explain why? I have clearly said that if the replica is not intended to fire only small plastic missiles, then it is a section 5 firearm, as the law says. Now you're saying no. No to what? The precursor or the statement that followed? I'm not trying to take the mick here, I just want a genuine, explanatory response so that I can evaluate the situation better.
