  1. Having spent the last 2 weeks on rectifying problems due to this Manufacturers parts being made incorrectly, lots of headaches, swearing etc.. I thought I would give you the heads up on this. Pistons both metal teeth and Polymer, have been made incorrectly. The teeth are too shallow in both these pistons and although they may work on initial fitting, they soon fail(within hours of use) metal ones end up with distorted teeth and the polymer ones strip teeth. Also M4 alloy nozzles are actually 2mm too short, therefore don't reach the hop. I bought a load of these in from our supplier and I am about to send everything back. having spoken to our suppliers. They have received a number of complaints. These parts are available on Ebay by various suppliers around the country, some have not yet realised that their is a problem. I doubt that they would unwittingly sell them, but would hate anyone to have the 2 weeks that I have had.
  2. Experienced players. More of a club than a site,but good bunch of guys. Like I said pop into the shop if you like and we will point you in the right direction
  3. Hi and welcome from us. We are based in Oldbury. Don't worry about your two tone weapon most have had to start this way. And as for sites just to add to the list, Frontier Airsoft in Penkridge excellent site play every other sunday outdoor site with different theme every week Next game 25th march and Fireball Squadron at Bassetts Pole , is fine I know you were advised against them earlier being Elite, which is true, but we are now affiliated with these. I know Matt there who is one of the Organizers I do his Tech work for him and believe me you would be welcome with open arms as he has personally asked me to point Newbies his way, as he is looking to grow the numbers which at the moment average about 50-60 per game which is the First Saturday of every month. If you would like more info on places pop into the shop we are not far from you and happy to help
  4. Hi, Give High Command a try indoor CQB site in Rowley Regis or if you want an outdoor site Fireball Squadron Bassets pole Sutton Coldfield play on the 1st Saturday of every month. You will have a great time at either. Tell them Targetszone pointed you their way.
  5. Thanks Duff Hope we can look after you in the future
  6. It's illegal to have a taxi cab without a bail of hay in the boot, you can shoot a Welsh man on Shrewsbury bridge on a Sunday. These are old laws never updated as for your quotation which does say restrictions not prohibitions . You can sell MkIV Osprey as surplus, It is however frowned upon selling Kevlar and plates for them, as is current issue Respirators and MkVII helmets
  7. Ah! I just presumed it was blowback, now I see the full picture
  8. Wow I am gob smacked that's a lot of power for green Gas
  9. I Think what you are seeing is 420fps with .12g which equates to about 330fps with .20g
  10. sounds like a load of crap to me, Not impressed with Taiwan gun, where they offer free downgrades to customers, some of their sales are shocking I have had a few customers that have bought off these had the downgrade and I have had to sort out the mess. Main springs cut and literally rattling about, bolts missing, parts broken, some which appear to be customer returns etc.. I really wouldn't pay much attention to any of their advice. Oil in AEG mags No way. The only thing I would say if you take the spring out and spray with WD40 and wipe it clean, that wouldn't do any harm, but the price of mags who could be bothered ?
  11. Ha Ha Lets have a heated debaaaaate !
  12. I am with you now, just I have had that many come into me for repair and servicing complaining of poor FPS. Then on inspection I see SH*t loads of PTFE wrapped around the hop unit and inner barrel, you wouldn't believe. I guess the dental floss around the rubber is a good idea, but just test that your nozzle is reaching inside the lips of the Bucking before you do anything. Get the nozzle in its most forward position. Take the inner barrel out and place it over the nozzle. If you feel resistance for the last half mil then it is sealing fine, If not then you can either have a tapet plate which is worn and no longer at a 90 degree angle, hence not pushing the nozzle far enough forward, a worn nozzle or the lips on the bucking worn. To be fair so long as the bucking fits nice and snug inside the Hop Unit, its nice and rounded when you look down it then their is little to none air that can escape
  13. Hate to say this guys but PTFE tape can have the opposite effect and create a poor seal. The inner barrel and hop up unit needs to move backward and forward freely. The spring fitted on hop ups is there for a reason. That being so that the nozzle fits just inside the hop up rubber, when at its forward most position. By fitting PTFE tape to the front of the hop unit. it restricts the movement and creates a gap between the rubber and nozzle
  14. Hi, it's your hop up bucking. You need to take it apart again, carefully remove the hop up adjuster bar there is a small screw each side then, if you look inside you will see the pressure bar. there should be a pin going through one side of the hop up to the other. Remove the pin, lift out the bar and your hop up bucking sits across, same as the pin. Just make sure the inner barrel is the right way up before fitting it. If you press down inside gently you should feel the rubber inside springy due to the window in the barrel being in the correct position. If you don't and it feels solid you need to turn the inner barrel until it is right. Then reassemble. I have explained as best I can, but you are probably best going on You tube and finding out. Just type in hop up replacement AK74
