  1. O stop being pedantic in front of the new guy 😂 but at the same time he is getting a custom built RIFLE 😄
  2. Going to throw another tiny AEG in to be annoying 😁 https://www.bespokeairsoft.co.uk/ares-m45x-s-with-efcs-gearbox-black-ar-083e
  3. For mine I had to crack out the lathe to remove enough material from the outer barrel, really annoying but now it just works and looks amazing
  4. Got a bit of an update for you guys, while chilling at home last night I noticed an Alan bolt which you can see in the second to last picture in-between the two contacts. So like any normal person I undid it and nearly ate the back end of the gun😂 turns out that it has a true quick change spring that come out completely after that bolt is removed which I must say is an unexpected bonus
  5. If you change your mind I run an Ares M45 s alongside my Striker and with the stock folded in I barely even notice it on my hip. It allows me to push in hard or hang back and pick them off and I am sure that if you were determined you would be able to sling it in such a way that you could carry it under your arm pit Hope this helps Solly
  6. Found this on the tube, as you can see I takes 2 minutes and they are perfect
  7. The G&G mid caps work perfectly after you remove the little plastic follower that gets stuck in the mag. I used them for a year without any faults or miss fires. Hope this helps
  8. Yeah but that is 5 rps with a 7.4 lipo with proper batteries I got it up to 17 rps
  9. Foreplay OK guys so I decided to take the plunge during the week and buy myself a new toy. It arrived in the usual fashion of being thrown like a discus over the gate before the driver floors it like he is in the Grand Prix. Luckily the gun was not damaged and i could get down to work immediately. Going in to this I knew that the M45 was small but when I opened the box all I could think is "where the bloody hell is the rest of my gun". I then realised that the stock was folded under it and i was a idiot. SPECS From top to bottom the front handrail and the upper and lower receiver are full metal. The stock is polymer and folded to make the gun even smaller. I did not think that ares thin motor would make much difference but it just feels so nice and the sharper angle on the grip is also greatly appreciated. Pulling the Charging handle revels a rotary style hop up and to close the window you hit the bolt release and it slams home with a satisfying click. I must confess that this is my first gun that does this and that click sound was heard throughout the house many times that day. The M45 comes with 2 mags (55 and 120 rounds respectively) and a speed loader that is almost useless as it only loads one or 2 bb's at a time but still a nice addition. The M45 shoots at 330 FPS with a .2 bb and when I first chronoed it it had an average 5 rps. The foregrip is removed by pulling down a tab and twisting. This removes the front rail along the inner barrel and hop unit. These parts are coated in so much lube that i could make a joke about it but I don't want the mods to catch me 🙂. Game day On the game day I ran my Striker as usual with the M45 hanging from my hip by a 2 point sling. At this point my only complaisant where that it sounded a bit shit and there was a delay between pulling the trigger and the bb coming out. This was fixed quickly thanks to the on site shop where I bought 2 9.9v LiFe batters because they where the only ones that where short enough to allow me to completely collapse the stock. After they where charged I gave them a try and the difference was night and day. The gun sounded amazing, the trigger response was perfect and when chronoed the RPS had increased to 17. I was also surprised by the range. For a out of the box gun i was able to reach out and touch people at reasonable range. Pros. The M45 is small, lightweight and in my eyes the perfect complement to a sniper who has given up on gas pistols (story for another day) The two mags mean that you are unlikely to run out of ammo on the field when using it as a secondary and it gives us snipers more flexibility and means that we don't have to say right at the back all game. Also the quick change rail allows you change the gun from a secondary to a primary in seconds by putting a longer rail on the front. Cons. I only have a few complaints as most of them where fixed when I stopped being a idiot and put proper batters in it. My main problem is that it cant be fired with the stock folded because Ares decided to use contacts instead of wires to increase the longevity of the M45. It is also super loud thanks to the short barrel. The price tag is also a little more than i would usually pay for a gun. Final thoughts Overall I think that the M45 would work well as a sniper secondary, a primary or a CQB weapon thanks to the transforming aspect of it. The M45 is a pleasure to hold and use and I do not in any way regret my decision of buying it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a small and compact AEG or just wants a very cool little gun. @rocketdogbert ARE YOU HAPPY NOW 😂
  10. Personally I have found that freezing 2L bottles of water is a great way to keep cool and it provides ice cold water as it defrosts throughout the day. It's cheap and as long as you keep it in the shade it will keep you lovely and cold all day
  11. Personally I think that the guy is an idiot but what I find most interesting is the language used in the article. Up until the very end of the article they call it a air pistol which is very very different from an airsoft pistol. It just makes me wonder how legitimate the rest of the article is when they cant get one simple name correct.
  12. I just acquired a dynatex timed grenade along with some 209 primers and 9mm blanks and I have to say that it is amazingly fun. Also got a replacement mag release spring for my Glock so that is working again 😂
  13. 1. Could we get pictures of the other side, the one with the cocking indicator 2. Try removing the stock there are 2 screws. One in front of the magazine and the other is behind the trigger guard. They can be removed using the larger of the two Allen keys in the grip. 3. The pin can get stuck in there so I would try to bash it out using a screw diver along with a small hammer. Do this as a last resort. If you do manage to get the pin out then I would advise getting an upgraded pin from these guys. https://www.bespokeairsoft.co.uk/parts/sniper-parts/bespoke-airsoft-ed1-strong-body-pin-for-ares-striker-smooth-operation It has a screw on it that means it wont slip out during the middle of a game and jam your rifle
