  1. If you want to import a black or "rif" you HAVE to have a defense which is commonly a UKARA number. Without, it will likely get seized and destroyed.
  2. G&G M9 mag lips are the cure you need. they are direct replacement and require no messing to get feeding properly. Had a similar predicament myself and after a tonne of internet hunting found that as a decent solution. TM mags can be plagued by the blow off valve so strictly speaking a combination of an STTI mag (resealed) with TM lips is likely the best. Unsurprisingly the Novy SSX23 had the same issues and he too has recently revised his mag feed lips.
  3. STTi Mk23 owner here. Running a Hadron TDC, autobot 60 bucking and crazyjet barrel it easily outranges AEG's and happily flings a 0.4 for me. Currently using 0.32's just to be a touch more conservative though. Throw on one of @Samurai's short suppressors and the thing is arguably silent. The only thing it doesn't have is rate of fire that you got an a GBB but that's why I carry both a G18C and the Mk23.
  4. I'm hoping not to. Not gone for a right barrel and hoping the long airbrake will take a good chunk off. I'm finding the 2J just isn't enough for what I want, if I ran without air brake it would likely be ok. Can lose weight off piston as well.
  5. Went for a .338 initially as it was only one in stock. I've now bought another .338 for my gspec outer as the length is useful as the inner protrudes into it a bit. Build has changed a bit from the above also. Now running PDI 6.05/380mm with faceless Rhop, FOW and 100% seal and have a Rapax 3J on order to use with long airbrake.
  6. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Front-Marui-G18C-ARMY-Airsoft/dp/B01C5INDTY Not quite an adapter as such it won't screw onto the outer barrel but you wouldn't want it to. They sit far too loose in the G17's generally so a really solid "fixed" solution like this is probably best.
  7. Ghillie update. Day 2. Nobody warned me how boring this would be. Genuinely want to stab myself in the eye with my craft needle.

      This sounds about right... However, at the end remember that you'll have a pretty unique product that will properly stand out on the field... in the safe zone because no one will see you in the field ;) (because nobody makes their own ghillie these days because they can just buy a pre-made leaf suit and be done with it)


      It's worth it in the end. I'm doing mine too and it's hell. We'll get there eventually! xD

  8. I'm not an expert on scars but thank you, oh thank you for this not being a thread about whether you should buy a nuprol defender 👍
  9. When you find the right size, of course order some cheaply but also order a few 1mm less in diameter but 0.5mm wider on cross section. Gives a slightly tighter fit that should still stretch round. For the cost you can't lose.
  10. 3 Weeks odd to kill?? Just pulled the ghillie base and yarns out.

    1. Impulse


      Haha, we're in the same boat. Got a leaf suit, but I want a proper ghillie suit and I've had all the stuff for around 10 years now!


      What are you using for yours? I'm using hessian and a webtex concealment vest.

    2. Skara


      This boat is rather large then.

      I have 2 systems to craft (leaf suit and viper hood)

    3. Steveocee


      @Impulse very similar boat.

      I'm using a modified webtex in that is been cut off at the back where the belt strap is and stitched so it doesn't fall apart then using Helikon ghillie fibres for the yarn, just like burlap only they won't go up in flames.


      Using a self threading needle to get the yarns into the base cloth to leave elastic free for foliage.

  11. Anyone else bored yet?

      @rocketdogbert I must be boring then 😂

    3. Skara


      I can still work :(

      which means being bored by default because I can only do a small portion of what I actually have to do.


      When I'm home I can't do anything because living in a flat sucks... I can only plink at a chimney on a roof 40m from my window but that's about it :(

      Not yet, servicing all the guns, garden plinking and giving the cars a serious clean inside and out should keep me busy for a good while. Then I'm sure The Boss will find me a few little jobs to do round the house ! Just hope I've got enough BBs to last 

      Oh and cruising the Gun porn on the interweb and compiling a huge wish list 🤣

  12. Just ordered a new radio. Baofeng BF8. Not really a change from the UV5 I have but itchy fingers and all that.
  13. Finishing a sentence with "Sooooo.........." Insta-Hate from me for that.
  14. There is no better. They are both great and both will serve you extremely well. Buy the one YOU like more. Nobody is withholding a secret about which is better from you.
  15. You'll be amazed how generic the term "baby things" can be lol
  16. They do sleep. My latest addition has just turned a week old and I'm about to pull my 2 sniper setups apart to fettle them whilst on down time in between feeds.
  17. 5.1 mags look awful though. 4.3 mags in a 5.1 all the way.

    I had exactly the same problem with my STTi clone mag lips. I tried to source some genuine TM lips and failed but instead ended up with WE M9 lips which are exactly the same fitment. Has been feeding perfectly since and for £9 I won't complain. My £40 STTi hopping 0.4's outranges pretty much all >350fps AEG's.
  19. It's a TM so it gets amazing range with the stock hopup and bucking because of the magical TM dust.
  20. Glock is lighter. I love both my G18 & Gold Match equally.
  21. Mine arrived this morning. Didn't get hit for import tax either which was a bonus. Very fast delivery from X-Fire

    No upgrades needed I run a gold match and have been for years on green gas and also a G18C, again no issues. You'll hear lots of things, they're not all true.
  23. I'm interested in the hi capa dude. Can you name a price please.

    Nobody said they hate Novritsch. In general his ideas have been good but the execution maybe somewhat lacking in places. The Novritsch guns are advertised as being good but reality is they are no better and in a lot of cases worse then the counterparts they are cloned from. All he's done is find a cheap OEM and stick his name badge on them making them sound a lot better. People are rightly getting a bit salty at you as you've asked for advice, been given very sound info and you've kind of ignored it. @Skara has had one of the weapons you've mentioned yet you have disregarded his comment because of a rose tinted preconceived idea that Novritsch is on your side and not in it to make money. Ultimately if being rude is trying to stop you making a mistake, most on here would rather be rude than let you waste your cash and be disappointed. Listen to the people, TM for out of the box. Better built, quality, performance and reliability.

    Then buy whichever one you like most. You've had honest opinions from experienced players.
