  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. Time Left: 6 days and 13 hours

    • For sale
    • As new

    Hello all. Bought this barrel brand new from Skirmshop which arrived yesterday, fitted it and realised it was the wrong length for my build. I feel pretty stupid about this. Have put less then 5 bbs through it. As you can imagine, the barrel is spotless inside and out. Lovely build and uses the "Jet" technology. Being a VSR barrel this is unabridged. Going to take a fair hit on this. 40 quid posted takes it.

  3. Yeah same here buddy! Well, luckily all my rifles are longer and there are usually some bits and pieces around that I can use. Currently looking for a 340mm tightbore for the plastic gearbox MTar and cant come up with any ZCI anywhere due to the shutdown.
  4. More parts... Sigh. AK2M4 SHS Cutoff Lever V2 for M16 SHS AR Latch for M16 3/16" Sorbo pad, one for Well MB10 and one for Tavor Rocket Shims 2 Delayer chips. SHS 16:1 gears for Tavor.
  5. Well. Considering I just bought a replacement AR Latch. a Hardened SHS Cutoff lever, a 16:1 gearset for the Tavor, Shims and delayer chips.. nah.
  6. Got the barrel in. Fitted in fine. But I must have forgotten my old specs as this new was around 80mm longer. The FPS has been increased by a few FPS more. If I put a bit of Sorbo on the inside of the Cylinder head will that not only help deaden the sound, but also reduce FPS slightly by reducing Cylinder volume? Not only that but the barrel wouldnt go through the old muzzle brake so I had to drill it out to fit the inner barrel through and it now looks a little silly. Also the silencer adapter I ordered fits where the Muzzle Brake would go, so I now have inner barrel going through where the silencer would be! Unless of course I got a 16mm/14mm adapter for the end of the Muzzle Brake and stick the silencer there. What a nightmare.
  7. It is a pretty thick Sorbo. But now the pistons been modified, might as well keep it like that. Yes there is a bearing inside the piston rather then the Spring guide. The piston I changed out for is slightly lighter then the old one which may make a difference. Before I took it apart there were no PME issues so keeping it like it is might be the better option (That and I am way over my budget!) No tappet delay, but I have a spare plastic one in my box that I can use!
  8. My gearbox parts have come in so decided to give it a go! Opened up the gearbox and this is what awaited me. Again, the internals being a surprise. The gearbox has clearly been worked on. The Gears are 13:1 SHS, Aftermarket piston with 13 1/2 teeth, stock brass cylinder, Lonex POM piston head and Lonex Aluminium Cylinder head. Basic metal spring guide. Slightly worn anti reversal latch but good otherwise. Standard wiring. So the original build had a High Speed G&P Ferrite motor, paired with a 13:1 gearset, no wonder it only turned on a 11.1v lipo. But had no mosfet installed! AOE is correct. The Spring is quite a strong one. The air seal components are really good so will be keeping them, very good seal. Slightly worn piston. The original black POM nozzle looks like it had been shaved down slightly as it's shorter then my replacement. Air seal is good with the Cylinder head so I am unsure whether to replace with the new one or not. It could have been shortened because of a feeding problem. What do you guys thing I should do? Shaved down the 13th Tooth on the new piston as the Sector was hitting it. Project has stopped here, having never broken into a V2 box I was surprised how little space I had for wiring. Pictured is the thinnest wire I had which is too thick to add an additional wire for the mosfet. So have had to order some 22AWG. Until that comes through I'll have to sit tight! Heres a photo of the AR Latch. Think thats the G&G one?
  9. 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

      @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.

  10. Oohing and ahhing over an E&L AK but decided to go for some bits and peices instead. Cyma 40MM standalone Launcher. Ultimate Tactical Digital Woodland Leaf suit. Shs M90 Spring Shs M100 Spring Shs M4 Hop Unit Jg G36 Hop unit (Just want the presser from it) 2x Hand Grenade Pouches for moscart. PPS Supressor adapter for Well MB10. Shs Silencer with Spring and foam inside. Modify Hop Up Bucking with flat hop nub 2x Prometheus Extra Soft straight bucking Admin panel with pistol pouch. (To mount my AFUK patch.) 2x Maple Leaf Delta Bucking for Gbbp Ultimate Tactical Glock Retention Holster to modify for my Strike Warrior.
  11. 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

  12. Parts from SurplusStore. SHS G36 Selector plate to replace the one I broke on one of my XM8's. Airsoft Pro 25.2mm G36 Air nozzle for XM8 to replace the one I mangled. Maple Leaf 510mm Crazy Jet barrel for my sniper rifle to replace the Action Army barrel that I cut pretty bad.
  13. Ordered from AK2M4. ZCI Inner Barrel (407mm) (For my Tavor) ZCI Inner Barrel (433mm) (For my M16A3) X2 SHS 14 Tooth Piston (Lightweight) (Tavor and M16) SHS (RA) Piston Head (6 Vents Aluminium) (M16) SHS (RA) M4 Cylinder Head Aluminium (Pad) (M16) SHS (RA) M4 Cylinder Head Aluminium (Silent) (Tavor) SHS (RA) Plastic Gear Delayer X2 Rocket High Torque Motor 16TPA (Short) (PRDC and Tavor) Hop-Up Chamber Tension Spring (M16)
  14. Hello all. I have a Well MB09/10 with the following upgrades. Action Army 6.03mm EG Barrel for VSR 550mm. (Cut down to 505mm.) Maple Leaf 60 degree bucking. TDC MOD AirsoftPRO Full upgade zero trigger set AirsoftPRO U shape hop arm AirsoftPRO Cylinder AirsoftPRO Cylinder Head AirsoftPRO Bolt handle So this is one of the Wells with the tapered outer barrel, so it's pretty long and cant change the hop unit out due to a slimmer profile then most VSR style hop units. Currently its firing at 450fps on .2's without hop and overvoluming on .48's to the equivalent of 518fps on .2s. Only when my hop is properly adjusted will the FPS come down to just below appropriate levels for UK FPS using .48's. So I only ever use .48s on this, currently its lifting .48s really well, unfortunately the accuracy and consistency leaves me disappointed. This is probably down to my badly hacked up inner barrel which I cut from 550mm to 505mm. So I was hoping to grab one of the Maple Leaf Crazy Jet 505mm as I have heard they work well on over volumed builds. But also I hear a shorter barrel would work better with heavier weight bbs. If I went with a shorter inner barrel would I have a problem considering I have such a long outer barrel? ( I had intended to build a silencer to quieten up the barrel noise). What would my best option be at this moment in time? Any idea what sort of FPS change I would have going from a 505mm AA 6.03 barrel to the Maple Leaf Crazy Jet? Cheers!
  15. There is none I am afraid. The aftermarket hops are for the G36's based on the TM design, JG, CYMA etc.
  16. The coolest bit of creaky plastic money can buy. Even more so then the Famas. Still wouldn't mind one of these myself.
  17. £706 at Gunfire. I think I have a 12% off code somewhere as well. This now means you'll buy it yes?
  18. AP does offer a lot more in many ways, but for someone who cant stand overcrowding then this site is on my level
  19. A belated last SE Tour Review for a while. Took sometime to write up but it's now ready! Dragons Lair Airsoft!

      So you FINALLY got to visit :)

      Yeah! I did enjoy myself :D

  20. Site Name: Dragons Lair Airsoft Contact details: 07703530189 Website Address: http://www.dragonslairairsoft.co.uk/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/dragonslairairsoft/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/129808267105240/ Site Address: Kelvedon Hatch, CM14 5TL I went and visited Dragons Lair Airsoft (08/03/2020) when I realised that COVID19 might be somewhat of a problem in the more immediate future. Whilst it being one of the closest sites to where I live, it is a nightmare getting to on public transport (Re: Impossible without Uber). The entrance is very well sign posted with a huge display opposite the entrance. Dragons lair shares a driveway with the Kelvedon Hatch Nuclear Bunker. I believe Airsoft games used to run in the actual bunker years ago. Alas not anymore. The site has been established for quite some time, the existing reviews I have found online have been very polarising. Many taking issue with it's size and how it run by the owner. I believe it used to be a certain Youtubers home site before being banned a year or so back. The website and official Facebook page does not get updated, but the group Facebook chat has some recent activity. The site runs every 2nd and 4th Sunday during any given month. This is a small sized woodland site, situated within a shallow valley. There is very few flat surfaces, Streams and some boggy areas throughout, with a lake at the far end of the site. There are man made structures everywhere! Though none of particularly good quality. (Some two storey towers, but mostly just single sided bits of cover.) Short, Medium and Long engagement distances are in play here. There are some CQB opportunities due to the Bunker, Tower and village section. However because of the site being in a valley, there are some good long distance vantage points. The vegetation was mostly high trees, with the structures essentially taking place of any meaningful low level natural cover. So Ghillie suits have limited uses. Good: Clientele: Really lovely people. Hardly any issues throughout the day, slight grumbling on the last game as it was quite frustrating for the attackers to take the last section. But otherwise, really friendly in and out of the safe zone. No issues. Hit Taking: I can say this hand on heart, the first day of Airsoft I have played where every player called their hits 100% of the time. Dead honest bunch, each hit taken with grace and humour. Marshalling: Spot on. Plenty of marshals on hand during the day and they were always in the thick of it keeping a close eye on hit taking, encouraging people to move forward. Reminded me of how Zed Adventures Marshal. It's so nice to see such positive and good humoured people running a game day. Safe Zone: Walled in on all four sides, compact but plenty of space for those who turned up. Most areas were covered with a roof. Chrono: Was mandatory and rifles were marked. Standard limits on the Facebook page were 350FPS for AEG, 450FPS for DMR and 500FPS for bolties. They use their own .20g bbs to Chrono. Average: Parking: A grass verge next to a gravel track right outside the safe zone. Playing Area: It was interesting. It was a compact site that has lots of things going on inside. Lots of effort has been put into the site as somepoint in the past. As described before, it has plenty of structures and earthworks, but a lack of low lying vegetation. Even though it is quite uneven terrain wise, because the site is quite small I did not feel particularly tired at the end of the day. I quite liked the site. I just feel to get a "Good" mark, I would maybe remove some of the superfluous structures and maintain/add to the more interesting ones! Maybe a trench system to mix it up a little bit? I do love the lake area, it would be nice to include that as part of the day (Maybe they do on occasion?). Value for money: £25 is fairly good for the experience you get and cheaper then most places around (Though no where near as cheap as Skirmish Billericay). Shop: Supplied by AirsoftZone, plenty of gas, bb's of different weights and personal protection. It was good enough for your average skirmish. Safety Brief: Short but covered just about enough to not leave people questioning things. Turn Around time: I felt that turn around time could have been slightly better, even very short games ended in going back to the safe zone to reload even though there really wasn't a need to. However the breaks were pretty short and you are never that far from the safe zone, so this escapes being in the bad category by a hairs breadth. Bad: Food: Just chocolate bars and fizzy pop from what I saw. Bring your own lunch! Update!: I do recommend that the site advertise and present themselves slightly better. Update the website and Public Facebook page. Create a new event per skirmish just to confirm the game dates, FPS and general information every month. Maybe a regular photographer would be a great addition. Conclusion: This site surprised me as I didn't experience most of what the poor online reviews stated. I really did enjoy my day here. The wind was a nightmare (Bit of a wind tunnel effect through the valley). But I got some pretty good kills. The site owner and marshals were all very friendly and up for a chat about various things. It differentiates itself just enough from the bigger local sites to be relevant. I would definitely come back once I get my drivers license as it's so local to me. It reminded me of Ultimate Wargames in Fawkham, where there are many regulars and new players where everybody knew everybody else's name. Family style. If they could just rearrange the playing area structures to be a bit more coherent and a bit less reliant on man made cover, this would be an excellent bit of skirmish-able woodland. All in all. A good low stress, low effort day. I was satisfied that my money was well spent, I had a laugh and I would like to go back soon. Definitely one site that I could become a regular at when I hang up my reviewing boots.
  21. There were at least 4 sites open near me this weekend.
  22. Definitely one I'd love to add to the collection!
  23. Possibly. But very difficult to get. Thst the feedtube on the pdrc is built into the shell. Would be very difficult to marry up everything. I already have a V1 and V6 gear box at hand to at least test before drilling or purchasing anything.
  24. This is 1:1 scale. But the dimensions of the Real Steel x95 is different to the Tavor. The Tavor gearbox is too long to go in this one. https://www.kotte-zeller.de/umarex-iwi-x95-advanced-komplettset-aeg-6mm-bb-schwarz Price has gone back up though to about 60 euros.
