  1. Yes seriously, I wouldn't have thought of doing so if it was a replica gun but I thought it would be basically akin to carrying a NERF gun around or something since it's from Aliens.
  2. Here's my helm so far; I didn't wanna spring for a GoPro so I bought a Xiaomi Yi Action Cam for £30 used on ebay, but I'm starting to wish I had just sprung for a GoPro Action or something. I'm waiting on a pair of Earmor M32Hs and a PTT switch for it. I've got a BaoFeng UV-5R (any help on how to use the damn thing? I feel like I need to attend some local HAM radio classes. I just wanna be able to tune into a team frequency and use it like that.) The strap on this thing is really uncomfortable too. It was only a £15 jobbie from ebay, and I've seen some for like £70 that have better looking straps, is there a specific brand of fast helm I should be looking at?
  3. Sorry I meant non-RIF in my last post. Doing about 20 things at once right now. I suppose I actually do still have the box for the gun so I can just carry that. Really need to invest in a proper case though for when I get my SCAR-H. Still get the feeling I'm going to look a bit suspect wearing all this on the bus.
  4. Yeah I was saying RIF because it's a spacegun.
  5. I might be able to take out the internals on my guitar case and use that, alternatively just stick it in a black plastic bin bag. It's only 1-2 buses straight to the site from here (20mins via car) so I can't forsee any problems, and if some cops did show up at some point I can just show them it and explain I'm on the way to a site or on the way home from it.
  6. M14A Pulse Rifle. Won't fit in my bag. It's not a RIF and I can only find information about carrying RIFs, do I need to conceal it? Could just keep it in a black plastic bag I guess. Thanks.
  7. Well I don't have it yet and I'm waiting for delivery from the USA I just want to have a battery ready for it so I can't measure anything.
  8. I'll be getting this gun soon and I've been looking for stuff I need for it. Just noticed it doesn't come with a battery. I've got a good charger already, an IMAX BCA6 V2, it seems to take the 'block' style batteries - should I get a nimh or a lipo for it, what's best? and can anyone suggest a specific one to get? Thanks in advance.
  9. Can you find an adapter for me to buy? I don't really know what I'm looking for. Will that site have it? In a youtube vid, the guy seems to be able to fit this 9.6v 1,600mah battery in it, which is "Size 240.5mmx18.2mm" Those batteries you linked all look a lot smaller which is great, there's even a 2,000mAh one which is Dimensions: 127x19x21mm, so that should fit? Thanks again guys.
  10. The battery in it is a nim-h, it's alright to use a lipo instead? I know you can get ones with the same tamiya connector but the guy above seemed to say the lipo wouldn't work? the one I linked. Which charger? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/catalogsearch/result/?cat=&q=IMAX+B6AC Ready to buy one right now. Also could you go on there for me and do a search for the right long cylindrical battery I need, 9.6v with the highest capacity they have, if you would please. I do not like the look of that gun -at all-. My favourite guns are the M1911, P226 X-Five, FN-P90, PDR-C, Sig Sauer MPX - you can tell I prefer more 'futuristic' looking guns, I love the bullpup design. I saw this PCP airgun the other day which I LOVE but it doesn't seem to be a replica of a real gun and there's no airsoft one I can find. https://hardairmagazine.com/reviews/kral-puncher-armour-pcp-air-rifle-test-review-22-caliber/ I'll probably get it eventually just for shooting in the back yard and plinking cans and just having fun etc. I'm sure you all know heh./ http://forum.alienslegacy.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16721 Thanks for this, he got it working? Looks like a lot of work but will be worth it I think. Reading the thread a bit more... yeah, that's a huge job. I was hoping I'd just be able to shove a small mini launcher in there and cut a hole out of the bottom for the trigger or something, but I can do all the stuff he did I've got a massive amount of tools. http://realitypod.com/2011/06/03/recreate-m41-a-pulse-rifle-coolest-sci-fi-weapons-of-all-time/ This guide is insane. It really looks like a lot more work than I expected. But yeah in the meantime can you tell me exactly which of those chargers to get, and find the best battery on there for me? as there are loads of different ones. Thanks again guys, so much info.
  11. I'll be able to know more when I actually have it delivered and in my hands, but from looking at youtube vids of it, the shotgun chamber on the pulse rifle replica holds the battery, which like I said in my first post I'll try and dremel out space in the magwell for a battery to power it so I can use it as a launcher - the heat shield you mention is what I'd like to get in metal as I don't think the one on the snow wolf pulse is metal (according to a forum post I read which is linked somewhere above). That part isn't a huge deal though. But because the barrel for the launcher is designed to just hold the long cylindrical battery I can't see how it would be easy to reload if I fit a shell in there, I mean look at these pics again: It looks to me like it'd be a one-shot per game and reloading it in between games, can't imagine it being easy to quickly put a new shell in there while playing.
  12. Well the shottie part of the gun is going to be one-use per game anyway really as reloading it would involve stripping it I think to reload a new shell, but if I can rack the shottie/grenade launcher slide on the gun to fire this from the chamber in the gun that's really all I want, like I don't want to be slapping a whole shotgun assembly to the bottom of the gun, I want to keep it as screen-accurate as possible while still working. Again thanks for the advice/help everyone. Nice community.
  13. haha. I'm the opposite. I get really into new hobbies and spend a fortune on stuff. I got a Remington 1911RAC replica a few weeks ago because I've always wanted a 1911 as it's one of my all-time favourite handguns, but obviously no guns allowed so ended up eventually getting that replica airgun. Does 300-350 FPS with metal pellets, been shooting at a texas star target and one of those ones that collect the BBs in the back and you stick a paper target inside, shot about 300 rounds with it before the pin in the gas chamber snapped (no idea why such a vital part is made of plastic, but they're gonna bring me a replacement on the 15th) Anyway I know you can't use airguns like that for airsofting (is that the right vernacular?) I'm getting an x-five as a sidearm that shoots plastic BBs, another one of my favourite guns. Will that be allowed to use when playing or is it too powerful? Oh okay thanks, I was drunk last night looking those up and half asleep so wasn't paying much attention. Will bookmark that. In the meantime, while I wait for my pulse rifle, what long nimh battery would you recommend? I think it comes with one but in a youtube review video I think the guy says its an 8.4v nimh but he fits his larger 9.6volt one in no problem, looks like this, think this is the one: https://www.vapextech.co.uk/8vp1600afp-l8-tm1/ Should I get that? Or say, this one? https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/we-9-6v-1600mah-ni-mh-stick-battery I'm not up on which brands are better. Some battery manufacturers (most really) are cheap as fuck and just use the cheapest cells they can get from china and slap their label on them and claim higher mAh etc when really they're not. They do that a lot with phone batteries. Well, batteries in general. Is this charger any good? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071NZ6ZCC/ open to recommendations. I've actually got a few from my RC helicopter, but I'm pretty sure they're li-po only. Thanks again. Also does not look like I'll be able to get a real metal spas-12 guard to replace the one on the gun because they're rare as fuck. Don't suppose anyone knows where I might be able to get that part? It's not a huge deal but would prefer to swap out whatever plastic parts of the gun there are with metal versions. Just to check too, will I be allowed to use this pulse rifle in games? There's a few local places about 15mins drive from here (north-west, Rock Ferry), was gonna show up with it and be like, "I wanna introduce you to a very personal friend of mine. This is an M41A pulse rifle. Ten millimeter with over-and-under thirty millimeter pump action grenade launcher." haha
  14. If I took the 9v battery out (or rather just not put it in), and cut off part of the housing for it, do you think this lipo would fit in the magwell? https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/vp-racing-9.6v-4600mah-ni-mh-block-battery Anyone ordered from there and know if I'll be able to get a refund if I send it back if it doesn't fit? 4600mah vs the standard 7.4 1200mah cylinder battery is surely much better? Will it improve FPS or anything or simply last longer before recharging it? I would wire it up to the ammo counter too, would need to cut into the wires and solder the 9v battery connections to it so it'll power both the gun and display - not like the display is going to be a huge battery drain at all anyway right? just a tiny screen. And if I can fit a 9.6v 6400mah battery that would awesome. Last a lot longer and frees up the shotgun chamber fir doing that mod.
  15. I'm really new to airsoft and airguns in general, what's a spring shotgun? will it go inside the barrel? I don't want to attach something to it unless it's a scope or laser
