    Tm 416c recoil shock

    Morning all, TL;DR What RDB says 😉 Slightly longer version: I am not sure it is possible to turn a 416c into a 416D . Never mind the question of what it would cost. Airsoft guns are like cars. You could build a car from spare parts (more or less) but it would cost considerably more than the cost of buying a new car. In my experience the 416C when compared to its bigger brother the 416D performance wise is identical. Same range ,same accuracy. You could argue that the 416C is a better choice because its lighter and more compact, a bonus when you have to carry it around all day at a skirmish, certainly a bonus when in buildings and tight areas. I use my 416C for woodland skirmishes, normally in the afternoon when my arms are tired "humping" the 417 about 😅. Upgrade potential, well that depends on what you want to end up with. If its a DMR you want, then what RDB says. If its a compact, full auto, very capable weapon then stick to the 416C. When it breaks light upgrades and "jobs a good un". @Keccott1610 no one is taking the "micky" here. These are merely our options, not in anyway meant to "diss" your ideas. ATB alan

    Tm 416c recoil shock

    You are welcome. Not sure about turning a 416C into a DMR. I suppose you could do it. Its likely to turn out expensive. It is not as simple as whacking a big ass'd spring in and locking to semi with TMs as they are not engineered to take the extra strain because the power limits in their home (japan) country are so low. As an example: My TM417 (NGRS same family as your 416) hovers around 460 with 0.2's. (local site allows up to 500 FPS on Single shot) The parts list to get to where it is today was extensive and expensive. Pretty much changed everything but the gearbox shell and the hop unit to get it working reliably as a Sniper/DMR. Something you might want to think about. ATB alan

    Tm 416c recoil shock

    Hiya, Something similar happened to my TM416C , contacts broke at the receiver side of the wiring. I am pretty sure you need this: https://eagle6.co.uk/shop/catalog/product/view/id/3099/s/tokyo-marui-hk416c-front-wiring-set-inc-fuse-for-hk416-next-generation-recoil-shock-series/ It is easy to replace the wiring (top tip the hand cover has to be removed before you try and split the upper from the receiver). The replacement itself is not a problem, just be VERY VERY careful when you are putting it all back together. Watch out for the wiring getting in the way of the HOP unit when bringing the receiver and upper back together again. HTH alan

    TM MP7 drop leg

    Thanks for the useful responses gents and for taking the time to do the pictures @Wo1f I am liking the TMC idea and the 8fields rig wouldn't kill the bank at just over £11. All the best alan

    TM MP7 drop leg

    Ohh interesting.... Same idea as me for the MP7 a secondary with a little bit more poke Seems like the TMC is like a clip for the top(butt end)of the MP7. I am guessing you use some kind of Velcro/bungee to "tie" the muzzle end down a bit ?

    TM MP7 drop leg

    Hi all, Santa is on his way with a TM MP7 for me (I can hardly wait 😜 ) I am looking for a thigh/drop leg holster. Something adjustable to sit fairly high up my thigh (butt stock level with my belt or a little higher when the stock is closed) so as its not flapping around when I move. I have seen quite a few on-line, but wanted to canvas your opinions. whats good and whats not ? TIA alan
  10. A TM MP7 GBB in black. Sent Santa (the Mrs) the website links and my UKARA number just to be sure Santa picks the right one. It's like being 12 again waiting for the 25th 🤪

    If the documentary floated your boat. Pick up a copy of Apache by Ed Macy. Very interesting read. 🙂

    Best shooting glasses

    Yeah,the set i bought had 2 lenses and a strap. the arms can come off an be replaced with the elasticated strap. I tried the strap but never got on with it as I am used to wearing glasses.

    Best shooting glasses

    I have Wiley X Sabres, i find them very comfortable. Pros: Very strong ( they meet MIL-PRF-31013 ballistic standard ) Able to take RX inserts (which for glasses wearers like me is great) Fit well regardless of head wear (helmet or cap) They have pretty thin arms and work o.k with a headset (i use a COMTAC II on my helmet set up, not as thin on the arms as Oakley Mframes) Cons: Not full seal around the eyes Reasonably expensive (i have seen them for around £30 a pair, without RX inserts and a single colour lens. Not sure if they were genuine or a copy) HTH alan
