  1. Looks great imo. If you saw a team decked out in crye at an MOD training village doing the same I think people would change thier tune. Its just super compressed cause of the small arena.
  2. Yeah its really not clear cut. - thats exactly what I mean by somewhat unhelpful info - in this case they have written that webpage with the assumption that readers already hold an FAC and are seeking to purchase/possess a moderator for use on a firearm.
  3. This is not strictly true. Not having a go cause not only is it really quite confusing but there's lots of information out there which isn't really worded that well! For example - shops selling 'real' supressors will say you need an FAC to buy cause they are technically firearms. This is technically true, sort of- but only when they are attached to a firearm. Shops will ask for proof the suppressor is on the FAC due to 1) target audience 2) arse covering. The definition of a suppressor isn't really that great imo: "any accessory to any such weapon, designed or adapted to diminish the noise or flash caused by firing the weapon" So there's no distinction between a 'real' and a 'replica' - could be a real KAC, could be the TM mk23 one, could be a coke can - the crucial bit is if it diminishes the noise or flash of a weapon and you dont have it on the FAC you are in trouble! For example - its fine for an air rifle (-12ft/lbs KE) or shotgun to have a suppressor. Anecdotally sellers will ask you what you intend to use it for - if you want to put in on a firearm they will ask for the deets of your FAC, if air rifle thats fine. Additionally, some 'real' supressors will be 'proofed' - if your FAC specificies a proof and you wanted to replace it, you would have to ask permission to do so. If your suppressor is unproofed you can replace with another unproofed supressor. The law is messy but it helps to know that it was written with poaching in mind - context is important. In short a supressor in of itself is not illegal but if you also own a firearm i would keep them very, very seperate should it raise eyebrows at an inspection. And i probably wouldn't bother getting a real one - you can still get into legal difficulty without having broken a law. Sorry for going off topic.
  4. Put money aside for the dentist bill and put it under airsoft expenses. Thats the straight dope. Bottom teeth break too!
  5. Hi Dave. UKARA is matched to postcode but i'm not sure if its checked. I would suggest that buying a gun to use in the UK is easier then importing your one from Germany - that is of course assuming you have a UKARA number. Yes you can use your girlfriends address - my UKARA is registered at my parents place as they are basically retired so are always around for the courier! For what its worth I helped a french airsofter who had moved to the UK for work and wanted to get his airsoft stuff over. I imported it using my UKARA number, it was all above board and there were zero issues. I'm more then happy to do the same again -do let me know if i can help.
  6. Great write up. Played a few games at longmoor and it is a cracking place. But i wish event organisers wouldnt have people spawning at the tank near the carpark - as far as i can tell it just sets them up for a loss. One team behind the train track and another directly on the other side of the playing area makes for much better balance. As for people dropping out that is quite shocking though hardly unprecedented... I'm gonna 'throw shade' here... me and a mate went to a legion battlesim game in november. As there were two of us i asked a team of guys just before kick off if we could tag along. Nicely rebuffed - fair enough. A few hours later its pissing it down and significant numbers had called it a day.. including the team who were too good for us!!! (Don't worry im over it...now). Just sat in the car park twiddling thier thumbs. Nothing against fair weather airsofters - you do you. But an all day game in november might not be for you and to be frank it was a bit lame. 'Everybody wants to be an operator untill its time to do (literally the bare minimum) of operator shit' haha Edit: @Asomodai -did playing at night inspire you to get nvg? Would you do it again? Thanks!
  7. 5.11 looks a bit more ventilated, on that basis i'd go with that, seeing as they basically the same price.
  8. - All sorts of things. Find out for yourself - i mean strictly theoretically exactly the same - an airsoft version of simunition wouldnt exist. Simunition also has shit range you'd be better off with airsoft for everything except tight cqb.
  9. There's something to cater for everyone, its all a spectrum and lets face it's not even that wide. Got open days to do what you want, then milsims, battlesims, gas only games bla bla - they all happen, you just might have to travel. If there was a system whereby you had guns that had (lethality aside!) the exact same function as real guns that would indeed be cool as shit and would probably replace airsoft. But that's not gonna happen anytime soon. Things which are trying to emulate this function is stuff like MILES and of course simunition. But not are there obvious practical barriers to using both those things to "skirmish" with, they have their downsides too. So rather then looking at what airsoft is bad at you should look at what it is good at - which is actually quite a lot. But you have to make the most of that too, whether as a skirmisher or a event organiser or whatever.
  10. Hi Adam, With regards to UKARA sites will generally ask you attend 3 times in no less then 2 months. Retailers will generally ask for a number, classfieds is a bit of a free for all. Leciester is a great place to be for an airsofter. The Gaol is great, and whilst i've not been you've got the department cqb in croft and Project X in Leciester proper. My advice is to pick a site, rent a gun and explain your situation to the owner. They might grant you UKARA - they might not.
  11. You need to be lucky every time but only unlucky once. He can do what he wants - but i think leading by example is good for many things, including running airsoft events. I'm not angry, just dissapointed!
  12. I dont know if it does tbh but in any case not to a significant degree as far as i can tell.
  13. Probably - and no its just a standard TM clone. Gonna have the usual mosfet and deans done to it so will see what the tech says. TIA!!
  14. Straight dope is there's no best. Airsoft is great but lowering your expectations will help mitigate future frustration! Eg: i got a jg g36,popular gun often used as a rental bla bla... shoots 230fps with a .2! Oh well! TIA - this is airsoft I'd advise you get this: it's an LCT who make good AK's, so its very solid, it's compact, and it has a RAS so you can fit grips optics lights lasers all that fun stuff: https://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/lct-tx-74un-with-m4-sliding-stock-airsoft-gun-aeg .. now i quite want one myself! What ever you decide, I would advise you start saving ASAP for another AEG. You really need to have 2 as a gun going down for the most part is a matter of when, not if.
  15. Putting a solid stock on an AKMS would require a new reciever, so you arent really replacing the stock, you're replacing a fair % of the gun itself. The AKMS reciever has a hole on each side where the folding stock is fitted, with the rear of the reciever being flat. The AKM reciever doesn't have those holes,and the rear of the receiver has 'tangs' which the stock fits to. With an AKM you could fit a real stock fairly easily with a bit of modification to the stock. You could also get a stock adapter which would allow you fit m4 style stocks should you ever wish to tacticool it up.
