    Good Starter Radios

    I posted this a few days ago. Thought an update on my progress with this might be useful. I have gone down the Small Business Light User licence from Offcom. Im sure lots of people dont. £75 over 5 years isnt a big deal and I can add in others to my team frequencies now quite lgally. I bought 2 Beofeng UV-5R radio sets with batteries, chargers and earpieces from an eBay seller in the UK called littlelittlebird for £38.99 delivered. These were programmed for me by a tech at my local site in less than 5 minutes. I found the Condor Handheld Radio Pouch fits perfectly and bought two from cadetdirectltd on eBay. £15.74 with combined postage. Then I bought 2 x Bowman Headsets and Peltor type PTTs (sold as Z-Tactical but arrived with no branding) from a seller in China called Sales-Radio. Unfortunately one of the PTT's doesnt work but at £36 delivered I figured this was worth the risk. Hopefully I will get a resolution on the U/S PTT. Thats it though, its as simple as that.

    No, quedos to this guy, I gave him twin TM MAC 10's for a LiPo upgrade. This involved removal of the battery containment, taking the wiring back to basics and sourcing and trimming the LiPo wiring to suit the space. Honestly im no monkey but this was more than i fancied. he is a good Tech and the Radios were programmed with no fuss, no charge and done in seconds. Hes not a "Tech" just because he programmed my radios.

    ASG CZ Skorpion Evo owners ?

    Well now he will have 4 plus the hicap and a hi cap speed loader. See how it goes I guess.😁

    ASG CZ Skorpion Evo owners ?

    Well he gets out with new gun and fires a few test shots. That’s his first Mag gone. Then he remembers is got auto burst fire. Yup, that’s second Mag burned. Etc. Etc... Basically he got used to carrying 4 high caps into a skirmish and the reality of managing ammo has never hit.

    ASG CZ Skorpion Evo owners ?

    I bought an EVO BET carbine from Zero One the other day and I will check which LiPo's I was sold along with it. It is a really solid, great feeling gun and I will let you know more when i prize it out of the hands of my boy, who has claimed it for his own. The mid cap magazines caused him a problem first skirmish. I have bought a Hi Cap but not told him yet. Rear site dissassembled itself first game but was just a nut worked loose and Zero One are sorting that out for me.

    How do you carry your rifles?

    Yes, I agree with Duff. Soft cases are much easier to handle and store. My rifle hard cases have both found their way into the loft over the years. One comes down for foreign trips once a year but the double rifle I bought to fit my 54" long AI doesnt even go in the back of my landrover! Even our airsoft pistols are tending to sit in the holsters on the vests, in the wardrobe. Im glad you made me consider this as I was just looking at buying a case for my twin Mac10's. Talked me out of it.

    Actually did “Radio” and nothing! Anything much changed in 2 years?

    I’m starting to look at radio for I and my boy and maybe a buddy or two. I don’t need to go full milspec but I am not adverse to a military style system. Definitely need a secure fitting headset or ear piece, mike and PTT. What would you recommend?

    Macks airsoft dreamers of the week thread

    This did make me giggle. Not sure what he is thinking? I put in a "cheeky" offer of £5 plus postage (£8.45 total) but eventually got him to decline then I bought a new one for £10.45 delivered. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mp5-Triple-Mag-Pouch-Vcam-Viper-Mp5-Pouch-Airsoft-Cadet-Army-Pouch-Multicam/302713683354?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055359.m2763.l2649

    Is surgical spirit OK to clean inner barrels?

    This is the stuff i use to make a release agent for reloading. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Isopropyl-Alcohol-Isopropanol-99-9-Pure-FREE-Shipping-Various-Sizes-Available/121467503384?var=&hash=item1c48070318 This will be very similar to the above. if you are in the Warminster area I can give you some as i bought a bulk lot for a project I havent started yet.

    Armed Police - Yes or No

    Me too. If our Police want to review that situation then that has to be their right. I would be very against it being something forced on them but politicians or some press fuelled outcry. Pepper Spray is a prohibited weapon in the Firearms Act. You would face proscecution as a firearm. Potentially a mandatory 5 year sentence.
