    Load-Out / Loadout Picture topic

    My GBBR loadout coming back to the sport after 6 years!
  2. THIS ADVERT IS 'UNCOMPLETED' - THIS MEANS THE ADVERTISER HASN'T BUMPED THIS LISTING, BUT IT COULD STILL BE WORTH CONTACTING THEM.

    • For sale or swap
    • New

    Hey guys, For sale is a brand new pair of 511 raid glasses. They were only taken out of the packaging to check the contents. I already have another pair that I use, and purchased these as a spare from Heinnie Haynes last month, but ended up not using them at all. I would have returned them, but I've already passed the return date. I will include all that is in the listing picture. These are as follows: Glasses frame 3 sets of interchangeable lenses (Clear + Smoked + Orange) Spare nose piece (for RX Insert) 2 Neoprene pouches Head strap Hard shell Molle/belt case Original packaging (box, manual, etc) I am able to post within the UK and I will cover the PayPal fees for no additional cost. I am also available if collection is preferred and can knock the cost of postage off accordingly (and the PayPal fees if paying by cash) Let me know if there are any questions you may have. Cheers

    New player👋Which gun out of these?

    Firstly, sorry for the long post. In my opinion, you should look at what makes airsoft appeal to you. To me, "looking cool" plays a big part of my fun in airsoft, so I would shorthand a list of sidearms you think "look cool" and then look up which manufacturers make it for airsoft. Assuming you are looking for pistols, good brands to look out for are any brands that base their systems on the Tokyo Marui gas blowback system (the majority of gas blowback pistols are based on the TM GBB), or even the KSC System, although these are getting a bit less popular now. Compared to 10+ years ago, there are so many choices for sidearms it doesn't really matter which you choose. But one thing you have to be sure of is the availability of aftermarket parts for when you need replacements. TLDR; Pick a pistol that either runs on a reliable GBB system, eg. Tokyo Marui, KWA, System 7 etc. KJ (TM, WE are based on the TM system, although there are other brands use it too. Maybe Umarex, but not 100% sure), The KWA System is also reputable and widely used especially in the US. Both TM, KWA, KJ and Umarex systems have great aftermarket support for spare parts. Remember that in airsoft, manufacturing tolerances are much looser than the real steel world and you should expect things to break after use. Some brands/systems offer more longevity than others, but any system you choose will eventually fail to some extent (some earlier than others). The most popular systems will be the Glock and 1911 platforms and those will have a plethora of aftermarket parts and support available. However, this is not to say other systems won't have any at all, you will just have less choice for parts for eg. the USP or M9. Look up the Novritsch SSP1 and see how it's system operates. (Novritsch has a second YouTube channel explaining it in detail.) Edit: Keep in mind, that even if a system is based on the TM GBB system, it may not be 100% compatible with it. For example, the WE Glock 18c is based on the TM system, and shares certain parts with it, but the slide would not be compatible with TM slides. I personally own a WE glock and use TM upgrade parts in it. The slide would be the last thing I would expect to break, so the incompatibility with TM slides doesn't matter much to me.

    New Airsofter Kent Area

    Weekday games

    👋Another Kent player here Been playing airsoft for about 5 years but quit back in 2012. Currently getting back into it and looking for people who want to play. I live around the Rochester area, so hit me up some time and maybe we could go to a game! I'm free on some weekdays too as I don't have to go to uni on some days. There's Battle Sector X in Rochester that does weekdays (Tuesdays I think?). It's a CQB site and it's mainly a laser tag venue, so it isn't the standard airsoft CQB venue you'd see in other places, but it's also the only place I know that does weekdays. If you do get a weekend off, you should check out Invicta, Imperium and Battlelakes. Battlelakes is run the by the people who do The Mall in Reading.

    They are all very good systems out of the box, and all 4 of them have excellent aftermarket support for repairs/upgrades. So as a first gun, I would choose whatever you think looks the best as you can't go wrong internally with any of them. Personally, I have owned a lot of VFC, and Ares guns in the past, so I would pick the Krytac just to try it out and also because I have heard many good things about them. Just remember that every gun on the market has its flaws, but they are all easily fixed with aftermarket parts, and you shouldn't have to worry about that with any of these guns unless you really abuse them.
  9. Helloo, So I started airsoft as a teenager, as most of us had, in Hong Kong when I lived there back in 2008 and stopped in 2012. Moved to England in 2009 and sold all of my kit and collection thinking I would never play again. Now here I am, starting a WE M4 GBBR build to empty my wallet into, a WE G18c and a TM Recoil Scar L coming in soon as an AEG backup! Currently working on a RG/OD PMC/Civilian loadout too. It feels good to be a rejoin the airsoft community. I will eventually be looking to go to skirmishes but don't really know anyone who plays anymore as everyone I played with had quit. What are the good sites that people go to around here nowadays? As of now, I know of Invicta, Imperium and Apocalypse as those are the few that keep popping up, I'd also like to do some CQB, so it would be great if there are some located near me. Hopefully, I'll be getting an SMG of some sort in the future (WE MP7 looks great). PS. If anyone in the Rochester, Kent area is willing to go to games with me, hit me up! Bonus Pictures! Picture 1: my previous main setup back in 2011 (King arms m4 base gun - DMR, G&P Sentry base gun MK18 SBR thing) Picture 2: current GBBR project
