    Rebuild of Cyma 702

    Hi Brushwood Im out of the country now. Will get back to you when I return. Am certainly flying pretty true to 70 meters.

    Novritsch SSG24

    Bear in mind Christoph’s videos aren’t filmed places where he is running sub 500fps either! I’m a fat old man now. I’d rather be sniping than running back to respawn every 5 minutes but there’s a lot to be said for a good AEG fight. Check the DMR rules where you play. This has the potential to be a very disappointing experience.

    Novritsch SSG24

    That’s why I ordered too. I am nothing but disappointed. 5 months they had my money. Took a Paypal dispute to get to the bottom of it. Frankly as I told Christoph he is a victim of his own success. Ive now left his groups, unsubscribed from everything. Toxic brand to me now. Leave it to the fan boys!

    Novritsch SSG24

    Would clarify “Techy” on these guns as watching a You Tube video and dropping in the components. Requires very, very little nouse.

    Novritsch SSG24

    Ok you have asked this at a time when the wound is pretty raw. I wanted one of these based upon the YouTube thing. This is a crap reason to buy. Placed my order 31st January. Paid via Paypal. Was prepared for a 3 month wait. Come May I was starting to wonder where the SSG was. Sent a number of mails befor it transpired that they wouldnt process the order without my UKARA details. There is nowhere to enter my UKARA details on the order. They say they mailed me on 1st Feb but I had not received it. So I had the mail filters at work scoured. Never hit our servers or filters. Having paid via Paypal I had not set up an account and the "message" only appears in the account. you have to log in and look for it. Chase, chase, chase. Was promised to be on a "Priority List" at the start of June. Weeks went by. I contacted them to cancel my order. Nothing. Got very defensive remarks on the Unofficial SSG24 Facepook page. (Support via mail is very intermittant). Days passed. Escalated my paypal issue to a dispute. A week passed. Oh look a message! No real attempt to resolve. So asked for my money back again. Got a mail from Novritch which blamed me and just pissed me off. So I wrote a very thoughtful mail asking, amongst a number of points, why I hadnt been refunded for 6 months if my order couldnt be processed? Christoph "Novritch" replied and he apologised that the mail had not come to me, that he had parts quality issues yada yada. Finally got my money back. Decided to upgrade my existing £100 Cyma 702 with parts from Airsoft Pro. 500 FPS is easy to achieve. A quality Hop and Barrel. £200 in upgrades and you will compete with the SSG all day. I bought the SSG before my journey into Airsoft had truly got going. I bought it as a "no tinkering required" rifle. Unfortunately the springs and bb recommendations have already changed this year so I would have been forced to open it up on receipt. Every owner tinkers and upgrades. Now I know better and I regret placing the order. Good news when you sell it, you will get most of your money back.
  6. I started out with a Blackhawk assault vest and drop leg kit that I had picked up on my travels buckshee. In my first couple of games I couldnt feel anything. I was in juggernaut mode. Definitely something I will wear for CQB but not in woodland. I rapidly swapped to a lightweight webbing set. Suits me perfectly. I can feel my hits and carry what I need. (I likes grenades) My kid whacked on an Osprey vest and was uncomfortable and hot. I bought him a really cheap Plate Carrier and it was just perfect for him with a few mag pouches and pistol holster. Think of it as Assault Vest light. Protection. Totally secondary in airsoft.

    Bullseye Country Sport

    I ordered something for the Masada the other day. Then wanted to add another item same day, Bullseye sorted this with no hassle. Communication was spot on. Then the notification it was being picked/packed, then notification of shipping. Flipping heck i had it next day. Absolutely will be back. This is the kind of service I am used to with real steel and seems to be sadly missing in Airsoft.

    Rebuild of Cyma 702

    Well I have the .40s flying well. Certainly 60–70m. I have put a 200+ rounds through and the action has smoothed out well. i need to experiment with the hop setting a lot more. Was running at 510fps this morning and tantalisingly at 495fps when I had finished but I was unable to confirm this odd shot before the Chrono died.

    Airsoft Pro Cylinder

    So I’m hoping that with my mods I can drop to an M140. Same reason, ease of pull. Interesting what I’m finding achievable compared to the Novritch I ordered ( Now cancelled due to order cock up). Results for M150 are pretty much as they advertise. Black steel Cylinder installed. faffing with the scope and camera set up now.

    Airsoft Pro Cylinder

    No sweat! Just fitted the steel cylinder. Definitely looks better but not as smooth as the original. May wear in. There are tooling marks on the outside that act like a very, very fine file. Bit of clatter as the nozzle enters the hop up chamber.

    Airsoft Pro Cylinder

    Go timed. I have the impact and if the ground is soft it won’t go off. I got right in on a big bunch of the enemy team, dropped in the Chudleigh, nothing, got spotted and shot 30 times. Still sad about that.

    Airsoft Pro Cylinder

    Well I bought the Airsoft Pro one and will see this morning what it will hop. I have a selection of BB’s to test. Go BFG. I have so many grenades now it’s clearly a problem. The Dynatex ones are excellent and the aftersales is superb. Nothing like seeing all the little sad faces on a line of blokes filing off to respawn after you snuck up and fragged em!

    I’m on that in the morning! Cheers guys.

    Airsoft Pro Cylinder

    I’ve gone for the black steel one. Frankly getting to 500fps is a breeze. The spring guide adds a lot of smoothness. The M150 gives it plenty of power. If the air seal is good then the rest is the hop and barrel. Black is way better than the silver. Looks like the inside of a coke can!

    I backed off the hop a lot. (On the Airsoftpro Hop this is a tiny lettle grub screw in the mag well.) Dont want to go too far in case I lose the darn thing. You think I can beat the chrono with a bit of hop adjust?
