  1. Bah I really screwed up with my barrel size for the sniper rifle. Anyone want to buy a practically unused day old Maple Leaf VSR 510mm Crazy jet barrel? 😄

  2. My Parcel from SurplusStore has gone missing. Was apparently signed for today at 1:30pm with my last name (CoronaVirus rules). But I didn't get a knock at the door or notification. My work desk windows looks out at the front of the house. Didn't see anyone drop anything off, or take anything from my door for that matter.

      Really they opened the parcel!! What the hell is wrong with people, greed.  She no doubt thought "hey free shit" then realised you knew exactly where it was.  You should have reminded her it's illegal to open post that isn't addressed to you

    3. Asomodai


      @ak2m4 No Harm this time around. I try not to make enemies of neighbours and I doubt she'll try again.

      Probably thought WTF is this stuff and best to give it to you. If it had been something normal you likely never would have seen them. 


      I bought a RIF once and the seller put the wrong house number on the package, luckily they were not in and it went to the collection office and I managed to get to it before they did. I can only imagine their faces if it had got to them and they opened it :D  They wouldnt have known who it was for either so I got very lucky. But I still laugh at some little old lady opening up an M4.

  3. So many months on, I am still considering buying my first AK. E&L Gen2's. What High Cap Mags are compatible with them?

      An E&L for 210? Please do share, I want an AK too.

    3. GAMBLE


      @Asomodai 👋

      I have to E&L AK’s 1st Gen, I believe, got them both 2nd hand!  


      This is what I bought and used for my AKM, check the pic, mine plays up from time to time, but still works and with other AK models! 👍

      (Works in my DBoy AKMS/ CYMA RPK.... must try it in AKS-74U?)! 🤔


      Also used a drum mag, but not so much! 🤔

      Hope this helps? 😎👍

      Yeh but GBBR >>>>>>>>> AEG

  4. A belated last SE Tour Review for a while. Took sometime to write up but it's now ready! Dragons Lair Airsoft! 



    1. Albiscuit


      So you FINALLY got to visit :) 

    2. Asomodai


      Yeah! I did enjoy myself :D

  5. Ugh. Nothing to do tomorrow. Anyone going airsofting in the London area i can hook up with?

    1. rocketdogbert


      MPA at Hockley are having a boot fair, might be some bargains 🤷🏼‍♂️

    2. Asomodai


      Ta mate

       Bit of a nightmare getting there due to the train closures though! 😞

    3. rocketdogbert


      Ahh bugger yeah

  6. My TM M9 U.S is making a quiet popping a second after I fire. Is this mags or the pistol? I presume I need to lube or clean something. Any ideas?

    1. Steveocee


      I had something very similar recently with my G18C, needed just a touch of lube around the loading nozzle and return spring and a bit of "movement" to settle it in. Maybe worth a try. I hadn't lubed/maintained my G18 for a year prior to this.

  7. Newbie Suppressor question. Many suppressors for Airsoft call themselves "Fake Suppressors" Is this because they don't actually suppress sound or because they are not used on real firearms?

    Reason I ask is that I want to get a suppressor for my bolt action to help dampen the sound somewhat. The only suppressor I own is just an empty metal case and I am unsure if this is what is meant by a "Fake" supressor" Do any suppressors work?

    2. AK47frizzle


      Foam filled "suppressors" do reduce the sound. The air that comes out makes a noise and masking that helps a bit. If you fire your empty gun with and without holding your finger over the barrel, i'm sure you'll be able to tell.

    3. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      oil filter is supposed to work on actual firearms

      so on that basis if anything is REALLY going to work

      it will be one of those bastards

      (google oil filter suppressor)


      most suppressors just change or slightly dampen the sound

      they are like farts, some are more quiet than others


      and love is like a fart...

      if you try to force it too much - it will probably be shit


      you could a piston brake or silicone pad over sorbo can lower the piston slap...



       often wondered about all those baffles/padding etc...

      but it must work of a sort coz going the other way...


      Don't buy a daft sound hog or FireHawk tip to become a loud annoying player on the field...

      Just cover/tape up a M4/M16 flash hider to make a massive CRACK for no costs at all

      So in theory going the other way some sort of "venting" or "slots" as well as the dampening material inside should perhaps dissipate the dulled sound ???


      NB: this is just a theory based upon the M4 CRACK you get if you cover the flash hider

      (try it - really makes a loud crack)

      So if an enclosed hider amplifies then maybe - just maybe a vented sponge might just might be a little more effective too perhaps

      Dunno - but I did wonder about all this crap coz most of it just changes the sound of the air, yet most of us still have grindy AEG's making the most sound


      The padding deffo does "something" though

      if you unscrew one them cw/ccw suppressors, pull out the spring/padding

      it makes a friggin' amplified CRACK too...

      just wondered if a cheapo slotted or swiss cheesed one would maybe be more effective ???


      ignore almost all of this coz I'm just talking crap coz I'm bored atm

    4. Skara


      You want to dampen the sound?

      Unless you have an airbrake I suggest to glue/pressure fit a rubber door stop onto the cylinder head, so that it dampens the impact of the piston head. An alternative would be to use a big fat o-ring in place of the door stop.


      Did it on my Striker and it killed the sound so much I can easily run without a suppressor and still be quiet as hell.


      On a suppressor there are a few things you can do.

      Scotchbrite disks in place of foam and plastic/rubber baffles.

      A fart flap helps a lot in lowering the sound but it needs to be done right otherwise it'll just throw your shots way off.


      Also, something that most 'softers don't care about is a correct volume ratio for the bb weight.

  8. Latest SE Tour Review is up! Imperium Airsoft (Kent). 



  9. People from BRISTOL. Are any of you playing either Black Ops Portishead or the Courts in Bristol on Sunday? I may be able to squeeze it in on a trip to see my folks. 

    1. clumpyedge


      @Druid799 usually plays portishead from memory or I'm making that up

  10. Latest SE Tour Review is up! Ultimate Wargames in Fawkham Kent. 


  11. Whats the scoop on Maple Leaf Crazy Jet barrels for VSR? Heard a fair bit about them in Pistols but not Bolties. Looking at replacing the badly cut down Action Army barrel in my Well MB09. 


    1. sonofsammo


      I don't know about in a vsr, but I run one in my SRS and it's awesome 😄


    2. Skara


      They are great if your gun is overvolumed, otherwise I wouldn't bother.


      I mean, the whole concept of the CJ revolves around using that extra air to create a cushion + stabilize the bb at the end.

      Does fuck all if you don't have extra air to spare tho :P

    3. Asomodai


      @Skara Mine is slightly overvolumed at the moment. So it could be useful. 


      My issue is that I cannot find another decent barrel which is close to 505mm long without cutting one down. I would rather not do that on a precision sniper barrel which relies on good workmanship to get the best out of it. 



  12. Anyone playing either Ultimate Wargames Fawkham this Sunday?


    Could do with a friendly face!

    1. MandalShArK


      There's another site in faversham?... i thought it was just Imperium and the orchard near Tynham?

    2. Asomodai


      @MandalShArK Apologies. I meant Fawkham! 

  13. If anyone is hitting up Reforger let me know would be great to see you! Going full long range tomorrow, Both my bolt action and my SVU.


    It's going to be a long Schlep on public transport :(

  14. Russian loadouts are so stressful to plan out and I have only been looking at the suits! 


    Looks like its going to have to be a Gorka-R in Khaki, not my favourite colour or even version. But its the right size (54 6-7).

      @DrAlexanderTobacco Ah, nice.  I forgot he had an online shop too.

      Adolf Hamster

      i wouldn't worry too much about the purists, you get them in every area. just get a setup you like and enjoy the comfort russian equipment provides.


      also if you get a smersh be prepared to have all your other rigs go obsolete :P

    4. EvilMonkee


      Adolf speaks the truth, I love my SMERSH and use it for everything.  I also really rate my  SSOJaeger chest rig.  


      A gorka, with a SMERSH is pretty much all you need.

  15. 2019 SE Tour Awards have now been posted! 


  16. Last SE Tour Review of 2019 has been posted! Mayhem Paintball And Airsoft in Essex. 


    1. Steveocee


      Great review as always 👍

  17. Booked in for Mayhem in Romfords special game day on the 29th of December. Will be there with the Wolf Armoury boys if anyone else wants to come along! 

    1. BibbsOnTour


      I'm already at South Coast CQB! Would have come along if not as I haven't been there before!

  18. Used my TM DOR Hicapa for the first time on the weekend. My first Hi Capa. My word what a great pistol! Even on such a cold day it got through the whole mag despite dumping all the bbs in quick succession with still some gas left over. Better range and accuracy then my A&K LMG. 


    I do still prefer my Strike Warrior 1911 for Trigger response, but the Hi Capa is a better all rounder.

    Hope I wont be too dissapointed with my Gold Match when I eventually field that!

      You, superb guns, just a shame I can’t get on with them

    3. sonofsammo


      Well, RDB, it's cos it's not a Glock 😂(yeah, yeah, FNX45. That's the just exception that proves the rule 😉 ) 

    4. Albiscuit


      On the other hand, mine had an issue firing in the cold!! Great gun though.

  19. The Site reviews will now be winding down, my BattleBuddy has quit Airsoft for good so my regular ride is no longer.  


    I will be popping in to a few new sites that have come up within Public transportable distance recently, but wont be able to do much beyond that unless the largess of others comes through! (I am doing my driving lessons, but still a bit off yet til my test!)


    Also starting a family this year so I will need to take at least year out when the nippers come along of course! 

    1. Steveocee


      Lies! I have 4 nippers and a 5th due at the end of Feb. Am already planning NvS in May!


      Sorry to hear about your battlebuddy throwing in the towel though, I appreciate sometimes airsoft is also about the social aspect rather than the "shoot fools" aspect.


      Have really enjoyed reading your site reviews.

    2. Asomodai


      @Steveocee Thanks for the kind words. 


      It will be mine and missus first and I dont want to miss the first year at least. She has a dim view of Airsoft as it is! We had a long talk about it and this was the best compromise that we could come up with :)


      For him its his Arthritis, its gotten so much worse in the past 6 months and has only played twice in that period. I have arthritis as well, but I am managing it better for the moment. 

    3. RobHedley


      Sorry to hear that @Asomodai...... the reviews winding up that is not the Child 🙁Congratulations on that one.


      I always enjoyed reading your reviews as they were balanced and honest without being nasty. Top work so far and I look forwards to reading more when a) Your nipper is a year old and b) you have passed your driving test. 👍

  20. My airsoft Schedule for this month! Hit me up if you are heading to these places as well!


    This Wednesday, Epsom Tunnels, This Sunday (Reforger, if I can get there, the last hurdle is always difficult!) 

    December 29th Mayhem Airsoft all site Airsoft.

      @Asomodai I’ll be doing the same bud planning on getting to Watford for around 7:30

    3. Zoli


      How was Mayhem?

    4. Asomodai


      @Zoli Please be mindful that Mayhem in Essex is a different site to Mayhem South East in Kent. 


  21. I want a Tavor… No decent deals around... But I haven't got an AK, never even held one, and there are plenty of those on offer...

      Hmm. I may need to hold off then. I cant justify 230 quid right now on something that's not a bullpup ;) 100 quid for the JG AMD-65 is really tempting mind! I believe that its mostly steel apart from the bits that matter! (The stock)

    3. AK47frizzle


      i'm looking at one of these atm: https://www.taiwangun.com/en/electric/ak-carbine-at-ak04-arcturus same factory as E&L. though, i'll be changing out the gearbox because their ones don't allow the fitment of a gate titan

    4. L3wisD


      Don't get a Trevor. Buy a PDR-C from me so I can buy @Davegolfs KWA vector 😎

  22. Anyone playing in the South East on the 1st of December? Dying for a game somewhere and would be good to mix it with some forumites. 


    Thinking of Skirmish Billericay for some long range shenanigans.

      @poachers if the underground plays ball on the weekend then I would love to take you up on the offer. What is your play style? See if we go tag team on some players.

    4. EvilMonkee


      If/when I get down to Plantation in the New Year more than willing to come pick you up mate


  23. I am quitting the forums....






    ...From Saturday to Wednesday. Jetting off to not so sunny Malaga, never been to spain and I am not looking forward to trying to avoid pork dishes. Promised the missus I would stop talking to you 'orrible lot during the time we are there! 


    Really hope the weather picks up!


    ...Having said that... any decent Surplus stores in Malaga??? 👨‍✈️
