    Macks airsoft dreamers of the week thread

    that was exactly the thought that just went through my head... dodgey is an understatement... it pretty much reeks actually you're right. I didn't spot that, I still don't understand why they have done that though...

    Eye Pro

    I have to say eye Pro is not the place to save money. for an extra £4 you can get these which will at least have a suitable rating. this company also do a few other types of goggles and glasses all of which are under £25 http://www.britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk/shop/sale-items/revision-sawfly-impact-sun-g-1123881.html

    Need single point sling

    that makes a lot of sense. and I definitely agree about the rear sling point potentially being a problem. I also run an asap sling plate which works really well as you say. 🙂

    Need single point sling

    I found the bungee to be ok in this case. it is fairly stiff so that it just takes the shock off dropping a rifle. I can't say that i have tried to stretch it particularly but it doesn't seem to stretch at all in my experience. of course YMMV horses for courses and all that.

    Need single point sling

    I have a WAS version, based on the same principle as the Ferro Concepts which seems to work well. the big bonus with this type of miller single point sling is that when you drop the rifle to draw a pistol, the rifle is not falling down the centre. this means it hits your leg instead of more sensitive areas...

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    first order from flecktarn.co.uk arrived yesterday. never used them before but Comms were ok, and it all arrived on time. I ordered a viper rigging belt, an osprey MK4 smoke grenade pouch and a bulle drop leg dump pouch. and I have to say the dump pouch is surprisingly good quality for the price, better than viper or condor almost on a par with WAS but not quite.

    Woman in need of apparel advice!

    on a side note, it may be worth looking in army surplus stores as well for things like shirts/jackets. particularly with women now being allowed in frontline combat roles. if you can get your head around the NATO sizing standards there will almost certainly be something out there that is already tailored to your shape.

    The two different types of cqb site

    ok, that sounds good. although I have never actually been to a ucap game before, the site and style is what is appealing to me... that and the fact that it is only a few miles away.

    The two different types of cqb site

    I can only guess that it might mean scenarios with limited ammo and a specific set of objectives and probably encouraging teamwork... I have no idea what this will actually look like though as we can only speculate. whatever happens I will definitely be trying this site out when it opens... 🙂 what they do say on their website is this; Vengeance will feature rolling games, themed with current CT operations in mind. Limited ammo, medic rules, much more like our Operation Semiramis. This is not a skirmish. You will be met at the gate by a member of staff and checked for booking. Returning to Battlesim! First game to start late Feb 2019.

    Heavy Balls - why aren't they white?

    that was my understanding as well. I believe that you used to also be able to get ones with a ceramic compound in which were white, however being ceramic they had a tendency to shatter which was not such a great idea so I haven't seen them around recently (nor would I actually want anyone to use one)

    Quick Questions & Simple Answers.

    that's a good shout on getting elasticated mag pouches. viper do some extended pistol mag pouches in the hsgi style. alternatively TMC make some SMG pouches which you can get from somewhere like weapon762. if you have the budget for real steel then blue force gear ten speed mp7 pouches are worth looking at along with hsgi if you prefer that style.

    The two different types of cqb site

    thanks for the heads up @MisterG I'm from that neck of the woods, and am certainly looking forward to that site opening... I mean a cqb battlesim, what's not to like. they haven't announced an opening date yet though, apart from possibly the end of Feb. 🙂

    WAS are they with it?

    likewise the majority of what I use is WAS. however it is worth being patient and signing up to UK tacticals email newsletters as they fairly regularly have between 10 and 30% off sales codes, and because it lasts so well don't be afraid of picking up bits you might need second hand. Their stuff comes up fairly regularly on the classifieds here and on Facebook 🙂

    Landscaping and Airsoft

    potentially or even just a gun emplacement or similar waist high trench/firing position. just a few photos for inspiration.

    Landscaping and Airsoft

    that kind of things is what I would find interesting and makes the site a bit more immersive. proper emplacements and hides made using log walls with soil piled on the side etc makes things interesting, and is a step up from knocked together plywood or crates scattered around. similarly any subtle features can be exentuated and used to change the flow of a game. things like an old wall, dried up stream bed or drainage ditch can be used as a way onto a target etc. it's rare that even a flat area is featureless when you start looking hard at it... anyways just a few thoughts that I had 🙂

    generally I just use an army surplus mtp PRI 45litre daysack as they are relatively cheap and built to last. I have not found much reason to use anything much bigger. admittedly I have generally only gone to the two day events where large Bergen's are not really required in the same way. just choose what you need. (for reference I'm a big fan of the okto eight series, although they are not as serious as some milsims...)

    Where do you hold your sidearm??

    nice, it sounds like it's worth doing some pistol drills and learning to shoot the pistol left handed 🙂 gotta love a challenge.
  18. Crazy_Crystal

    Where do you hold your sidearm??

    for it me it kind of depends on whether I am playing cqb or not. cqbI use a drop leg holster. anything else I use a belt mounted holster. @Druid799 it's interesting that you mention shooting ambidexterously. I always have my holster on the right as I am definitely right hand/right eye dominant when shooting with a pistol and I can draw.and.shoot quickly and.more accurately that way. but then I can shoot a long gun with either hand... 😂

    What's your mag / rounds count?

    for an assault loadout I use 8x 60rd midcaps and 3x 24rd pistol mags split between a plate carrier and a belt. for a sniper set up I generally use 3x 15rd sniper rifle mags and 3x 24rd pistol mags on a belt. I will generally combine these for milsims to provide some flexibility too.

    Umarex/VFC/Elite Force MP7 AEG - Any info?

    I think that it is mostly down to the high quality externals, some of their newer rifles are pretty well built by all accounts. although I have only ever owned the m40a5 which actually I really like and is a really solid rifle. by all accounts their hk417 and G28s are pretty nice too, although their sr25 is on another level I believe. (at that price I would hope so )😂

    Airsoft Guns you'd like to see made

    regarding the Op there's a few I'd love to see, an M-tar 21 gbb an L129a1 and a propper semi automatic m1014

    Perfect weather for a game

    likewise, I'm a fan of cool and dry... it just makes everything a bit more comfortable, or possibly a bit of sun even... 😁

    Waterproof Jacket

    I personally use the 2nd gen mvp jacket (the one with the black lining) it has zip up vents under the arms which help alot but be aware that as with any good waterproof, it can be pretty warm. but for the price I haven't really seen anything better. 🙂 http://www.britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk/mtp-combat-waterproof-mvp-smock-1395158.html

    Suppressor threading help

    the adaptor is removable from either the barrel or the suppressor therefore; unscrew when you are finished and put on different pew? I'm afraid that I am struggling to follow what you are actually looking for. 🤔 if in doubt take some photos, a picture is with a thousand words...
  25. Crazy_Crystal

    Suppressor threading help

    do you mean an adapter with the opposite thread direction? or a small outer barrel extension? although I personally haven't seen any we 11mm to 14mm CW adapters put there...
