  1. WE Glocks over TM. Everything else TM.

    How many of you prefer tan/fde rifles?

    You could argue that black stands out even more than tan. Players generally avoid black tactical clothing in favour of browns, tans and greens. So why not tan guns? I like OD myself but you only seem to see it on Augs and Sigs.

    Throat protection

    I got hit in the throat once. And it really hurt
  4. I've always gone for a black finish, and it is I suppose more appropriate to northern climes. But a change is sometimes nice and I've been finding the dark earth guns increasingly attractive. I've even come to like the two tone guns which some hate. The cm18 look quite nice to me and the two tone Raider 2.0 has also caught my eye. I also like the look of tan accessories like vertical foregrips, red dots and torches. Black can get a bit boring after a while.

    SRC 1911 - Preferred gas?

    You should be ok with the Nuprol stuff in the green bottle. I have also been impressed with Puff Dino from Airsoft World. It is good value for money though I suspect a bit hotter than the Nuprol. I also use the Abbey 144a for plastic slides and their Predator regular gas. I have two tins of ASG Ultrair but have not yet used any because it has no silicone - just 90% propane and 10% butane. And it gets the thumbs down from Wolf. Oh, he beat me to it.

    Help with ICS-25

    I have always been confused by the ICS range of M4s. If you look at the G&G catalogue for example, it gives you a pretty good idea of what the differences between beginner, intermediate and advanced ranges are. This is not so clear with ICS guns. I know they have a sports line ofpolymer guns. But there are quite a few metal guns with model letters or numbers that aren't very familiar available at around £240 or less. Yet anything called cpx, hog, etc is a lot more expensive. The differences between them aren't always made very clear.

    Is the GR15 with metal rail..?

    I imagine most members would agree with you. Doesn't make a lot of sense to produce a lighter gun by using polymer, only to then add more weight up front. And if you want metal on a combat machine it might seem more sensible to have a metal receiver and polymer rails. Thanks for the reply.

    Clearly not a popular gun amongst members.

    Or perhaps even "tribute". 😁

    Aluminium Black, a test

    Is that the WE version? If so, how do you rate it? I know the TM one is very well regarded.

    Reasonable Eotech clone

    I have one of this type on my M4. Don't know what they are called, and I haven't really had a chance to test it yet. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pinty-Tactical-Reflex-Riflescope-Release/dp/B01N9JJRJK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1541783008&sr=8-3&keywords=red+dot+airsoft+sight I've also been looking at this type. Again don't know what it is called. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pinty-Green-Tactical-Reflex-Sight/dp/B01MZ1QCHE/ref=cts_sp_1_vtp And then there is the ACOG type. Are the clones of these better than the EOtech? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Military-Tactical-Green-Airsoft-Hunting/dp/B00KWZAZM6/ref=cts_sp_3_vtp And then there are various Trijicon types as well as the old style 30 and 40mm tube type. Are

    Hi Cappa's, Pros/Cons

    I notice the TM Hicapa has two holes at the base of the grip for those who want to attaching a custom metal magwell. Do you think those holes could be used to secure a pistol lanyard. Would those holes and the grip area itself be strong enough to take the weight of the gun without cracking?

    Airsoft carry bags and cases

    If you're walking a couple of kilometres don't bother with hard cases that have handles. It's got to be one of those soft ones that take two rifles and have shoulder straps. There are plenty of them on Amazon and Ebay, and some are very cheap.

    Reasonable Eotech clone

    Thanks for your replies. The reason I was looking for an eotech clone is because they look good on AKs. But Wolf is not alone in pointing out how dark and reflective the cheap ones are. So I will ditch the idea and consider another style of red dot. Or, I might just forget about red dots and spend the money on a tracer unit. I agree that for CQB you don't often have the time to aim. It's generally point and shoot and at close range it seems to work. Thanks again.
