  1. Definately this, I love the look of the P7. If money was really no object though, I wonder if I could convince WE or somebody to make it their next release...
  2. Hi guys, I had a game a couple of weeks ago where I brought my new SGR12. Given the limited battery space, I bought two Nuprol 1100mAH Lipos, and charged them with a Nuprol charger. The thing is, I barely made it through the warmup, as the battery ran out of charge about 2/3 of the way though a drum. I saved the other battery for the last game, and it ran out about the same time. The charger instructions said that the lights on it would go green when charging is complete, which was less than an hour. This doesn't sound right, as it's a 800mA charger. Is it a hardware issue, or have I bought the wrong battery? Thanks for the help.

    Omg how many bbs do you use?

    I usually go through 1 bottle or just under, but I usually don't default to full auto. Went through a bottle and a half last time I played. Would have been more, but the DA58 battery went flat. Just got a SGR12, so I might be using a lot more next game.😀

    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.

    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.

    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.
