    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    Hao Industries Geissele rail came today, absolutely amazed at the quality of it. Fitment wise, took a fair amount of lube (wahey) and elbow grease due to the tight tolerances but eventually went on and fits perfectly flush with the receiver. The GK Airsoft KAC QD silencer was another recent purchase from PowAir6, had planned to fit an AceTech AT2000 inside the can, but it isn't quite wide enough. So back to the drawing board on that one. Thinking about getting the Predator and having it painted.

    Gun picture thread

    You’re right, the colours don’t match, even from the factory. They went for a RAL8000 finish on these and it seems each component got a different “artist impression” Under certain light conditions (dark ones lol) it looks a little more uniformed.

    My new Umarex HK416 A5 AEG. External upgrades - Magpul RVG, HAO Industries SMR rail & Aim-O SRS reflex sight. Still waiting on the silencer to clear customs and will add the AceTech AT2000 to complete it. Internally, the gun is stock and shoots really well out of the box (330fps) with good accuracy at 20 meters. Hoping to field it before Christmas! Only downside I can think of is the battery space. With the fuse in the rear wiring and no space in the stock, you have very limited space in the buffer tube to get a LiPo in there.

    Well here is hoping Aim-o get theirs from the same factory!

    I'm still waiting on mine to arrive from ShootersCB! How are you finding it so far in terms of build quality, clarity etc? What brand of replica is it?

    Nothing needs to be done to it, I'm just an eternal tinckerer! Some people like to leave them alone and enjoy it as the factory intended and some others prefer to see how far they can push the platform with a KoA £1,100 longsword package. My G&P based M4 is upgrade to the nth degree and the upgrades cost me less than half of that longsword package with someone else doing the work for me. One day I'll get the TM but for now, I'll see how the VFC performs.

    I agree that it isn't a direct comparison. I've had the opportunity to use the TM and I did love some the unique features BUT, are they worth an additional £130 over the VFC? Then taking into consideration that none of my existing mags will work with the TM, another additional cost. Add in the LiPo conversion (which would invalidate manufacturer warranty from TM?) and in my own opinion, the balance started to tip towards the VFC. The TM does out range most standard AEG's but my VFC isn't likely to remain standard for long. With an r-hop installed and a new barrel, its entirely likely the VFC will shoot just as good if not better than the TM. The TM still remains on my wishlist, one day i will bite the bullet and get into it, but for now, The VFC will do just fine. The gun will remain stock apart from the R-hop and barrel upgrade and when it does come time to look at upgrading it, I can be fairly confident of being able to do most of the work myself, something I wouldn't entertain doing with the TM.

    @Defender90 I just placed an order for the Umarex HK416 A5 in RAL8000. I had considered the TM Delta Custom but couldn't justify the additional upgrade expense to get it where I'd like it. Picking it up on Thursday and have a HAO industries Geiselle rail currently stuck at customs! The last major purchases (I hope!) before Christmas!

    Outdoor & Tactical

    I've ordered Geoff's from Outdoor & Tactical a few times now. Good prices, great service and fast shipping. Even received a couple of patches in my most recent order.

    EMG Salient Arms 2011 DS

    the screws are in there pretty tight and are really easy to strip so I'd say you'll need a shim.

    EMG Salient Arms 2011 DS

    Let me know what you think of the Blu - I've only used it for plinking so far, still need to find a holster that will fit it. I ended up swapping out the inner barrel and hop up and put the G&P gold trigger and gold outer barrel onto mine but still have some niggling issues with it. The front and rear sights are loose on mine (common problem i hear) and it isn't as gas efficient as I'd like. FPS drop off has started to level out a bit, but could be better. I'm struggling to find the right parts to rectify those problems given the larger nozzle and BBU.

    Best inner barrels

    I have an EdGI barrel in my RIF and cannot fault it. The machining of the hop window and the finish on the barrel are superb. Expensive though.

    PTS EPM Mags not feeding Prowin

    Hi Everyone, I've been pulling my hair out over this for weeks now so hoping someone on here might have experienced something similar or can suggest something that I haven't considered yet. The main issue is that the PTS EPM mags won't feed the installed Prowin hop up. If I put vertical force up on the magazine, they feed just fine but without doing that, I may get 1 shot in every 6-8 pulls of the trigger. Here is what I have explored/tried already: Hop up shimming - There are 3 o-rings over the barrel to help push the hop up chamber back against the GB and there is virtually no play either horizontally or vertically Velcro/Gaffe tape - I've applied velcro to the inside of the magwell to push the mag forward to help it engage with the hop up, this worked for a while but doesn't seem to provide enough "lift" to get the mags in the right position Hop up disassemble/reassemble - No visible damage to the bucking, no blockages, airseal seems fine There are a couple more things that I am looking to try to do in the near future: Swap out mag release - The gun has an APS Ambi mag release fitted at the moment, I will fit the original G&P piece to see if that hold the mags high enough to engage the hop up unit Shim the magazines - I've seen online that some people get round this issue by gluing a small piece of material to the mag catch window on their magazines Swap out hop up unit - I had heard stories about how these were hit and miss. I hadn't intended on going with the Prowin but whilst it was being worked on by the tech, the previous unit (prommy) wasn't performing well so I was offered the Prowin out of one of the techs other guns. The gun has an R Hop fitted so I'd like to try and avoid swapping out the hop up as much as possible, otherwise I need to cut a new nub and risk fu*king the R Hop up There is a second issue, but unsure whether they are related at this point. When the mags are feeding and I put a fresh mag in, the first 8-10 shots are really low (180-200fps) and then suddenly climbs to the usual of 350-355. I've tried leaving the PTS EPM filled over night to take some bite out of the spring and tried filling half way but the problems still there. If anyone has any suggestions on where to go next, it would save me a lot of hassle and time! Cheers, AP

    New pistol came today, EMG SAI Blu, made by Armorer Works (WE). Shooting around 300-310 on GG, will pick up CO2 mags in the future and see how it fairs up.
