  1. Yeah ares striker was among the group of 5 I could find that were most recommended, but considering the aim is for upgrading, the ares striker loses on base price. I do prefer to look of the ares though, I also like the look of some of the m4 bolt action snipers, but I do love the simplicity of the vsr 10 base aswell. I wish I could just enjoy a little plinking during this lockdown but I live in a building where about 6 flats overlook our communal garden. and the building next door is a HMO with at least 5 tenants overlooking our garden. Theres just too many options of people to call the police, and as its communal in the eye of the law technically I can't take my airsoft gun there without permission from the landlord.Too much of a pain to try and get away with. Inside my flat the longest straight is about 15m so hardly testing my skill (Plus there are already way too many dents in the wall from testing my aeg and accidentally shooting through my catch bag as I built it lol)
  2. 2 JG and 1 for Cyma. So far from what i've been reading the JG Bar seems the most highly recommended and consistency seems to be superior to Cyma. From what i've seen of the Cyma's, QC can mean you can get a decent gun out of the box, or complete pile of trash. I guess ill just have to pray to the Airsoft Gods that the person doing QC wasnt hung over haha
  3. Hi all, Im considering buying a cheap base sniper to start upgrading, I am stuck considering a few base guns and wonder if you guys may share your thoughts if you have ever owned one. Choices are: Specna arms SA-S02 Core JG Bar 10 Cyma CM701B ASG AW .308

    Hi, I recently took a shot at ordering a £150 Mystery box off bbguns4less and got a bit burnt if I'm honest. Lots of reviews stating massive savings however I only received £153 worth of stuff, ahh well. The guns I received are definately more for younger people, maybe back garden play or plinking, but not worth me keeping so I'm selling them all, they are all brand new so may make a good pressie for someone wanting to get into the sport to have a play with. There is an electric cyma 0.22 ak47 shooting at around 160fps. This is currently retailing on bbguns4less on sale at £48.95 An electric black viper smg shooting at around 160fps.This one is quite heavy, so if your like me and like a gun to have a little weight and not feel like a toddler toy then this is perfect. This gun is currently retailing on bbguns4less at £59.99 And finally a spring pistol shooting at around 270 fps. This is currently retailing on bbguns4less (Not on SALE) at £14.95 Also not included in the pictures is a spring rifle that comes with a (cheap) red + holographic sight and a (actually quite decent and robust) push button laser (both rail mounted) however we weren't able to get that gun to work, so if your interested let me know. All guns have been tested and chrono'd. Postage or pickup available however postage cost to be decided based on weight. I'm willing to accept offers, however please make them sensible. I'm also willing to accept a trade but only for either a working spring sniper, or a working full metal gas pistol.

  5. It says in the article a gas powered bb gun and unregulated at close range with steel bbs it could easily lodge. I just can't believe the stupidity of some people. Might as Well use a water pistol, at least then you won't get section 5 offence
  6. Just was doing my usual daily news surfing and stumbled upon this story where 2 teenagers robbed people using a gbb pistol because "they were desperate for cannabis" I really worry that idiots like these are going to get airsoft guns banned! https://f7td5.app.goo.gl/TKfomX7wASzIyNXB2
  7. Okay, to put it simply, due to money/time constraints I had to modify my src plastic gearbox to fit in a aps asr shell. The only thing I really had to modify was to sand down some of the plastic reinforcement around the screw for the stock to make it fit into the lower receiver. I also switched out the src stock cylinder/cylinder head/nozzle (the stock version the cylinder was plastic and the cylinder/cylinder head were all one piece. The flat plate that the air nozzle connects to though I had to use the stock all-in-one-piece air nozzle as the flat plate/metal nozzle wouldn't fit into the plastic gearbox. Now my question. I can't look at the gun today so while I can't work on it I was wondering what troubleshooting steps I should take. Essentially when I was test firing the gun, I used a low cap mag and filled it with about 30 or so bb's. When test firing the gun would randomly stop feeding and the only way to get it to start again was to remove/replace the mag. Now when I dismantle the gun again, what should I be looking to check? The hop up in the gun is just a craptastic plastic one that came already on the steel barrel because I was too lazy to replace it with the 1/2 plastic 1/2 alloy one I have. The magazine retaining clip is good and tight. I have yet lubed the piston or air nozzle but gears are shimmed and greased. The main reason I hadn't done everything before reassembly was because I was at my brothers and soldering/modifying the year box to fit and didn't have a whole lot of time. Good news is my mosfet works like a charm. Downside is I have no chrono and the gun seems to be a lot more underpowered compared to when the plastic gearbox was in a plastic gun with a longer barrel. So question 2 is will a shorter barrel generally make a large difference on fps? Or is it a negligible difference? Also if anyone reading this is in/near high wycombe and owns a chronograph, can i come use it? Lol i have the spring from my plastic gun which, with the longer barrel was bang on 330fps but I also have a totally unknown spring that I wouldn't mind testing if the shorter barrel turns out being my lower power issue As usual sorry for long messages and thank you for all your guys help
  8. "proper job" my late grandad's favourite saying! >.< I think what I could do is use something like blu tac to position it if it's too loose, make sure its centred, then with the blu tac in place, apply glue one side and once dried glue the other side. Would have to be thin to seep it, but would make sure it stays centred
  9. Well someone off the forum offered to send me another metal shell for free, but while I am waiting for that, I wanted to get at least 1 gun working so I can go to a few games in January lol I'm only just shy of having enough parts to make 3 working guns now haha Only 2 of the holes appear to be worn out to .2mm the other 3 holes still have their original plastic bushings press fit EXTREMELY tightly. Taking the bushing out of one of the tight holes and trying to press it into the 2 larger holes, the bushing just falls out. So luckily the size issue on only 2 holes on one side of the clam shell. I might loctite both of the large holes with bearings, and put all 3 gears in and then close it up like you suggested. That will do me fine for a month or two while I wait for the other shell. Its either that or using my plastic gearbox with which has literally NO bushing or bearings at all (the holes for gear shafts are just holes in the gearbox shell) for a month or two haha
  10. My main worry is that anything TOO permanent means that if there is a .2mm gap and the bearing ends up off centre then releasing the bearing will be a nightmare.
  11. Thanks for the help guys, going to order the shs ones next week and get a bit of loctite and see how it goes Nice to know i'm not totally useless at googling haha
  12. Hiya, I have a gearbox missing plastic or actual bearings for the gears. I measured the holes to find and buy new bearings and my callipers measure between 7.1 and 7.2mm for the various holes, however everywhere I look I can only find bearings at whole numbers... e.g 7, 8 or 9 mm od. So the question is, if it measures 7.2mm is a 7mm bearing the right choice?
  13. Love it when a bit of philosophy makes you laugh. I was actually wondering yesterday, if I get a new shell gearbox barrel hop up unit would it still be the same cheap ass gun haha >.< Hopefully someone on this forum has a cheap outer shell/outer barrel I can use for the time being then saving up for next year for the time being a bucking (and new fire selector switch as I snapped mine off >.<) will do me okay. There is no way my sight is ever going to compensate THAT far right. I found it was okay as long as I wasn't going to a too long range and with 0 hop up it wasn't too much of an issue as I wasn't shooting at the maximum range. Just got to make sure we don't go to a huge sprawling site as ill be buggered haha >.< Also had my fair share of non-hit takers. I'm surprised how little it bothered me, one was hilarious. This guy wearing all black was stood up behind a barricade about 20 metres from us. Me, my partner and another person stood up in a staggered formation and all on auto fired at him for a good 5-second burst, he literally just stood there, then popped down his head after we had stopped firing. The only time I got even a little-pissed off was when a member of our team shot be almost point blank in the back of my leg, twice, and all I got was a mumbled sorry. My partner says she thought she saw him having issues with his gun earlier on but still took me a few mins to bite my tongue and cool off. It really sucks you have to use the same site 3 times as although the xsite at lane end was alright, I think that site would only be at its best early spring and late autumn when it isn't a quagmire or overgrown lol (Oh also xsite lane ends prices have now gone up and are £10 more expensive than absolute, that's £10 more for a site that SERIOUSLY needs a lot of sh*t torn down and rebuilt) My partner wants to go to absolute up in reading next. Literally, the next day after the Xmas game she was nagging which dates absolute was open >.<
  14. I did try that first, but my barrel has a metal lip going around 2 3rds of the way around the barrel, and then a flat spot, so 1 end always lifts up as I roll it. When I get my phone back next week I will try and get a decent pic of a squinty barrel view lmao
