    Eotechs and AN/PEQ 15s

    Quick question: What brand Eotech replicas (for 552 model) do you all recommend? I'm not willing to go above 50. Also i've looked at PEQ 15s lately and i am wondering, is the g&g version better than FMA's? I'm hoping that somebody with experience can help me out here.

    Eotechs and AN/PEQ 15s

    It does ghost slightly but it isn't unplayable. Tinting issues aren't a real issue either. There is the problem of light shining at it will cause your forehead to reflect onto it. I got mine through bullseye, the service they give is good. Paralax is an issue just to warn you.

    Occasional grinding sound

    So I was testing my new Ares magazine for my AR-016 (also ares). I heard a sound come from the gearbox like a grinding sound accompanied with a vibration from the pistol grip into the lower reciever. This sound i've heard before once in my last game, the marshall said that it maybe because my hi-cap had run out of ammo and the spring unwinding, that is nothing out of the ordinary as i've heard it before. This time i was using a midcap magazine. Should i get my gearbox reshimmed? What should i do? I'm too scared to take the gearbox apart and i would rather get a professional on the case. I live in blaenau gwent south wales.

    Of course i forgot about that part. Sorry if i came off as snappy there. I'm going to go to a tech if i get this issue again. I am too scared to take apart a gun's gearbox as i don't have £200 to spend on a new gun 😕 (it may not have the best rate of fire but it is accurate and feels nice to shoot lol)

    Occasional grinding sound

    I bought it first hand, it was shipped from a wholesaler to the shop i bought it from. The 5-10,000 shots is more of an average that i have calculated from the three times i've used it. (I know, i'm not the best at the sport). I've encountered this sound twice. I've tried correcting the motor seating so with any luck it'll be that as the vibration came from the pistol grip. The gun hasn't been used before me. And as i said in the original post, the first encounter could very well have been my hi-cap unwinding. I did run out of ammo and there wasn't a vibration in the pistol grip.

    Occasional grinding sound

    It's a brand new gun (only used a few times) so the bevel shouldn't be worn. What is the ARL? i've checked the motor seating and i'm going to go over it again with an actual tech. The grinding seems to happen maybe 1 out of every 10,000 shots in full auto (i rarely use full auto).

    So i think i have it. The grinding only seems to be like 1 in every 5000-10,000 shots. Hopefully that has fixed it. Next game i'll get it serviced and checked by the tech.

    it's first hand new (i don't buy second hand guns). But i'm worried about messing that up.

    I'm probably going to mod the Bowman so i have some padding on my ear (they look unpadded) but i'm buying the PTT next week to save money. I have some new stuff arriving so i'm happy.

    My throat mic broke yesterday. Amazon were kind enough to refund me so i decided to buy myself a Tomtac Bowman style headset and a BaoFeng-compatible PTT.

    My best guess is for looks.

    Military Group Youtube

    Okay, so i came across this German (i think) YouTube channel called Military Group. All these guys seem to do whenever airsoft is mentioned is rag on it and show their distaste for it. These two videos are a good example of this. If anybody thinks i'm wrong do say so, because i won't take offense. I just want to know what everyone here thinks of this.

    O must have the right size then because it distributes my weight real easy

    I do feel that these guys look down their noses a bit towards airsofters. Now i have seen my fair share of people who take the game too seriously (i leave them to it). I don't feel that doing an impression build is dishonouring anyone so long as you don't display regimental patches and/or pretend that you serve(d). I posted this to gain a bit of insight as to what you guys think of the videos. I did indeed choose my religion, seven... I don't think you'll like it though, it's a bit too mediaeval :p. I didn't intend to start a flame war.

    Need single point sling

    I need a new single point sling for my other rifle (i am running one gun per loadout). The choice of colour is coyote brown to match my MTP. My other sling is made by Viper but i want to get something better. Atm i have a low budget so Condor, 5.11, and Magpul are out of the question. Cheers to everyone who helps out here.

    Bloody hell, dude! I'm glad mine didn't come with armour. I actually do squats wearing this vest XD. Army gear is very practical outside of airsoft and military.

    Need single point sling

    You don't need to worry about that Yeah please, dude my other sling is a viper tactical sling. It's lasted me okay but i know that i'll need something more durable as my MTP loadout is my main one (and thus will be used in more games.

    Need single point sling

    Bro, it's cool. I hope i didn't come off as defensive or as a bit of a knob, I totally get what you mean so there isn't any negativity at all. If you have anything that may be helpful then definitely throw it in, i'm very much in the same boat as you :).

    Need single point sling

    I thought about it but i thought that really, i'd be more likely to get an answer on a more active thread I saw the 8fields one, how long have you had it (how many games has it been used as well)? Any signs of wear?

    Eotechs and AN/PEQ 15s

    Give me all your bias! XD i actually went with what people recommended to me on this thread (the Aim-o/Element Airsoft Eotech). The point is that all opinion/review contains some level of bias, and if you bias towards it then there must be something that works for you.

    Eotechs and AN/PEQ 15s

    I actually decided not to buy a PEQ since i wouldn't be using a laser. my Eotech and torch is from Element Airsoft and my torch is from Night Evolution. Airsoft Mike did a review on the FMA PEQ box. Neither are banned as far as i'm aware, just be wary of strobes and where you point the laser.

    Load-Out / Loadout Picture topic

    Don't worry, i'm not offended. I mean that it's heavier than what i'm used to, my assault vest is a lot lighter by comparison. This has a lot more material and with the two bottles of 3000 bbs, 5 magazines (fully loaded) and various other objects invluding 3ltr water bladder. Luckily it doesn't have hard armour or real steel ammunition because it would weigh a ton. It's actually quite comfortable though and distributes the weight really well.

    My cookie cutter M4. The tac light and holo sight were recommended by people on this forum (thank you, guys).

    I have finally got myself an Osprey mk4, bloody hell this thing is heavy! The camel back pouch is only temporary (from my assault vest) so if anybody can direct me where to get a british army camel pack (MOLLE on) that would be epic! (Yes those are power rangers douvet covers, i've had them since the 90's lol)
