    Plate carrier in the gym!

    Was definitely a 5.11 TacTec or clone of one. Didn't think to go ask questions, he seemed very "in the zone" in the corner.

    Plate carrier in the gym!

    Was a bloody shock, I'll tell you that! Very unexpected 😂 Then saw someone wearing a white covert type carrier today with blue gloves, walking very quickly. Are plate carriers a thing in general now?
  3. Started my fitness journey a few weeks back (getting tired of the ol' spare tyre) and to my surprise, someone was wearing a black plate carrier while training! I assume it had some kind of weighted plates or a similar substitute. Guess it kind of looked like a 5.11 TacTec? I know weighted vests are a thing commonly used in fitness, but has anyone ever seen someone in an actual plate carrier in a similar setting? Certainly was interesting to see! Overkill? Normal? God knows!

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Bought some tm scar mags, prepping for my first game with it!

    UKSF? What kit is this?

    Nah it is an 8fields plate carrier 🙄 he is actually just an airsofter who took the opportunity to look oper8r with his g&g cm16 in public

    TM recoil Scar H 😀 Going to be waiting by the door for the postman even though I ordered it just 10 minutes ago 🙄 One can hope!
  7. So, it is essentially just for looks in airsoft? An inch or two of rail may not weigh much, but it will definitely add up if someone only uses max 7" of their rail but they have at least a 14" rail system (basically twice the weight in rail)
  8. Quite new to this so I am still just trying to figure a few things out. Been seeing more and more of these super long rail systems in airsoft lately, usually for the AR type RIFs. What is the point of a rail system that extends all the way to the end of a 16" barrel, for example? No one seems to utilise the rail slots beyond about 6-7" and even then, it is usually just a foregrip and maybe a bipod (for those super cool M4 DMRs with a scope, KAC foregrip, Harris bipod, magwell grip and silencer). Can someone enlighten me as to why so many people opt for them and utilise them like your average 7" KAC rail? It just seems like extra weight. Or is it just another attribute to looking cool with a full auto M4 DMR? TIA
  9. Well what a coincidence, same gun, got a tan one. Sucks about the barrel, so expensive PTS Masada
  10. Hello, is there a place that I can get a section of my outer barrel removed and rejoined (I want to keep the barrel threads), or just shorten the barrel and rethread it? I do not want to pay £100+ for a short barrel for my gbbr. I would do it myself but I have no experience with stuff like this and I do not want to mess it up. Thank you

    Took the plunge and bought an ARP9 with a drum mag! Super excited! Pictures will follow when it all arrives

    Best CQB gun, a pistol?

    I see, as we are talking about Glocks, any idea what the average range of a stock tm g17/g18 is? I will consider the maple leaf set if it really is that significant. I was using a Krytac crb up until now but I really prefer pistols in almost every way

    Best CQB gun, a pistol?

    What kind of difference does the maple leaf set make? Is it significant?
  14. I am relatively new so I am not the most experienced. However, I am looking at airsoft from a practical standpoint, rather than tacticool. Would a pistol not be the ideal choice for airsoft CQB? We are all shooting 6mm, so that is the main difference from the real world (and not killing each other). You would hardly be shooting to the ends of the earth in a CQB environment and it seems that the majority use semi auto anyway. Pistols are ridiculously compact as opposed to rifles (obviously) and their magazines are much easier to store/carry. Would a pistol be the most practical option? The only issue I could see would be the small iron sights but I guess a small red dot could solve that. If you do not think it is the most practical option, then why not? I am just searching for opinions as I would like to know which route would be best to take. For reference, I am thinking of maybe a Tokyo Marui Hi Cappa or Glock 17/19/22, gas blow back of course.* I also prefer low/real cap magazines, not sure why. Last question I would like to present would be that in the event of needing to shoot at longer distances, what upgrades would have to be applied to a gbb pistol to reach a little further than standard; Is it as simple as changing the bucking and inner barrel? Thank you all and I hope for this to be an interesting thread! *I have heard about the magic of the TM MK23 and the range, but I do not wish to own one as I want it to be a blowback pistol.

    Making a Royal Mail claim? Value?

    Cheers guys! Also had a package go missing back in Feb and ended up giving a refund straight away, I suppose I will make a claim for that too. Sending internationally with RM does not seem to be going well...
