    Anti-Reversal Latches - What's the difference?

    Well, yes... The reason for my question is that the gearbox on the Fa-mas that I'm upgrading takes a mix of V3 and V7 parts. I'm not sure which one to get... The gears are V7, but I'm not sure what the difference is between the two latches.
  2. Can anybody tell me (or preferably show me) what the difference between a V3 and V7 anti reversal latch is? Thanks in advance! 😁

    Macks airsoft dreamers of the week thread

    Absolutely this. It would be a really simple way to launder money. The mind boggles...

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    That's pretty much the reason why I bought it for her. Because it means I can wander round in a Hawaiian shirt with plastic dinosaurs calling myself Wash. 😁

    Hello Fellow Airsofters

    Welcome along to the mad house! 😁 I started playing Airsoft in 1999, I can tell you that is was practically middle-aged by 2012. Back when I started you could pretty much have a FAMAS, an AK or a G3. Other RIFs were available but IIRC they were very expensive. Those were the days...

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    My new toy just arrived... A Cybergun FAMAS Evo, which I plan to completely gut and upgrade. My first AEG back in the very early 2000s was a TM Famas, so I'm a bit nostalgic when it comes to these. I was toying on getting a TM instead, but the CG model doesn't have the stupid V.1 gearbox parts that the TM does. Instead it uses a combination of V.3 and V.7 parts, making upgrading it much easier. Initial thoughts: It has a lovely feel to it. Much more sturdy, no creaks (unlike the TM I had all those years ago...) and surprisingly weighty for a polymer body. Once the work gets underway, I'll post up an upgrade thread for anyone that's interested.

    Woman in need of apparel advice!

    The warm jacket I got @Arwen for Xmas is a Solder 95 issue PCS Thermal Jacket - lovely bit of kit! Here's a link. If you decide to go down the 'belt and braces' approach, I have a heap of German Army issue pouches, belts, shoulder harnesses and additional pads for the straps & belts that could really do with a new home. This sort of stuff: Drop myself or @Arwen a PM if we can help at all.

    Impression kits driving gun purchases.

    Wow, thank you so much for this! You certainly look the part. I've been looking at the pre-Felin spec body armour system - I'll post up some photos when I manage to source a set. Thanks again!

    Got any photos of your CCE loadout? I'm looking to put together one for myself, or the desert equivalent. I'm first AEG back in the day was a TM Famas, so I'm going to get myself another one. 😁

    This. Absolutely this. Thanks for agreeing with me. 😁 The TM PSG-1 is nice and shoots well, but it's awfully plastic feeling...
