    Upgrading a Tanaka revolver

    Hi guys, didn't know if this was the right place for this, it's a gas gun but not a GBB. A few years back, I bought a Tanaka M500 10.5 inch on impulse. I haven't used it since first getting it. I was thinking of using this in a "pistols only" game, but want to upgrade the inner barrel for better range. The gun has what looks like a 4 inch inner barrel, and I was thinking of putting in a 8 or 10 inch tightbore. Does anyone know what barrels are compatible with a Tanaka revolver, or perhaps other upgrades? I couldn't find many Tanaka mods. Are there guides to pulling a M500 apart? I couldn't find much on the subject. Thanks for the help.

    I use a Helikon jacket and trousers for both my loadouts. Very comfortable and it holds up in any weather. Affordable too. I definately think they're worth a look.

    Prescription glasses and airsoft

    In my experience, it's not the Bolle goggles that are expensive - it's the lenses that you get made to fit the insert they include. My last pair was £35 for the goggles, and £70 for the insert lenses from Vision Express. My newest pair is £35/£65 respectively. Still, they do the job nicely.

    I'm dreaming about airsoft!

    Had a strange dream where I was at what looked like a comic convention at Braehead Arena, but the vendors were all selling new and used RIFs. Instead of celebrity signings, they had manufacturers showing off their "coming soon" stuff. Wishful thinking I suppose.

    Hi everyone.

    Yeah, I went by the book description of black fatigues and camo-cloak. Cut a Flecktarn poncho down the middle for a cloak, since it blends in well at S8. Got some Helikon BDUs and a Viper Special Ops vest for a flak vest, mainly for the shoulderpads to look like Guardsman armour. Used a DA58 for a lasgun and a G18c for an autopistol. Turned out pretty well, IMHO. Here's a pic that was on the S8 Facebook page - can't really see the outfit, but it's the only pic I have.

    Hi everyone.

    Hi guys, Just realised I hadn't introduced myself before posting on the sales - that was quite rude of me. Been playing a while now, was a member of the now-gone UKAN, ASCUK and Airsofters forums. Hope I can contribute a little to these forums with my posts as well. Thanks for having me.
