  1. @Delgado900 Is this to your liking perhaps?

    THE TM MWS thread

    @Kayzeroth Just me personally but stuff like that I usually do not upgrade unless it breaks. I doubt just replacing the chamber will have any effect anyways although I am not an expert about anything hop-up related, just my view.

    @RobHedley If I didn't get scammed I will give you a shout when it arrives. Should arrive late next week, early the week after that. Basically what will be left is the rail, outer barrel, gas block (providing the Strike Industries one fits), gas tube and the flash hider. Also it is not bravery, it's stupidity combined with an addictive personality disorder(I googled that, probably most people on the forum here could be diagnosed with it) .

    Just ordered the John Wick Conversion Kit... I shouldn't take days off, way too expensive as I had ordered a flashlight (Streamlight Protac HL-X 1000 lumen light inc. the Cloud Defensive Rail mount for the pressure pad) for the MWS this morning aswell 😭 No idea how I am going to explain this one to the missus, thank god she won't be home until later tonight.

    Welcome to the club! What Dave and Jimmeh said sums it up pretty much! I am not in the position to give any advice anyways as I end up destroying pretty much everything I touch

    @Crazy_Crystal There is always hope when there is money, just a waste of it. Whichever option I choose in the end though, everything I don't need is going up for sale, so soon on the classifieds: Either half an MWS or half a John Wick set 🤣 @Fissure I can only confirm that for the flash hider you need 1/2 28, that is the standard RS size, you can buy them on ebay fairly cheap (got mine from Germany, about 20 euro's shipped). The other ones I am not sure enough to answer your question. Just checked Brownell's UK https://www.brownells.co.uk/AR-15/M16-RECEIVER-TAPS-DIES-1250-18-tpi-Die-BROWNELLS-080598126

    Seeing as I might have to buy a new MWS, I emailed specshop about their ridiculous price increase. I asked them if it was a mistake, which I assumed it wasn't but you never know. They confirmed the previous price of 500 euro's was a promotion price, but because I am often returning customer there with a good "track record", they instantly offered me a 15% discount and free international shipping (which is on everything above 200 euro's to mainland Europe, not sure about the UK though) so I was pleasantly surprised(must stress this was a personal offer by the way, don't all go mailing them claiming a 15% discount 🤣), still one of my favorite shops! All I have to do now is decide whether I am going with a new MWS for approximately 570 euro's including shipping and all, or for 673 USD a Angry Gun John Wick kit, which will end up costing me around 750-800 euro's...

    I see what you mean but I doubt there is a big market in Europe, let alone just Poland for Strike Industries parts so I assume they only import small amounts which drives up the price. Also being the only seller in Europe (Brownell's has some parts but not near as many) they can charge as much as they want, there is always an idiot with a bigger wallet than brain (me, for instance 😄).

    @Fissure The SI Venom is 1/2" x 28 clockwise so that is what I re-threaded the extension to. When I get a new upper I am definitely getting it re-threaded at a specialized shop, not going to take chances of anything happening to it ever again. Just wondering though but what exactly do you find overpriced at specshop?

    THE TM MWS thread

    @UKCYukarin Aww man, the one on Gunfire was my fail safe if I couldn't find an upper haha, it isn't going my way. @Fissure Yeah a friend of mine re-threaded the lower so the lower is pretty much done for now. The filing needed for the trigger guard was fairly minimal but I did the filing on the lower instead of on the trigger guard. And about the barrel nut, I doubt it really, I'm definitely not going to try anyways (not that I have an upper to screw my barrel nut onto). What I did just finish though is re-threading my outer barrel extension to fit RS flash hiders :D. Took about 45-60 minutes to re-thread, slow and steady is the way to go and a lot of oil, a lot of it! The only annoying part is actually making sure the extension can not move in the vice and getting the thread started, fairly annoying keeping it straight at the start but once you actually start re-threading it centers itself. Just need to re-coat the extension. *EDIT* Added 2 pics of what it could look like, if it wasn't borked! *EDIT*

    Disaster struck for the upper, got refunded because the seller can not deliver...going to have to go another route now unfortunately. Good news for my lower though, that is now finally completed because I finally got in my detent pin for the safety . Testing it like this it seems to all function properly but can not do any actual tests until the RIF is complete again. Also bought a Strike Industries Flat Wire Spring for fun, probably have to shorten it a bit though because it's clearly too strong of a spring for a GBBR but that was to be expected. *EDIT* Found an upper in stock in Spain!!! But wait, they don't ship to the Netherlands 🤣 Just wonderful. *EDIT*

    Starting to get a bit worried about getting a new upper Delivery date for my order on eBay shifted to around the 14th of June. Doubt they actually have it in stock so if I don't hear anything by next week I will cancel it and refund it. Not sure where else to check as I think I checked pretty much every webshop in Europe, Asia and even the US just to make sure. As much as I love the MWS, sometimes I wish I would have just gone with the GHK because I find it ridiculous spare parts from such a large brand are pretty much unobtainable. Not sure what way to go at the moment. /rant!

    @RobHedley Gasblock looks great man! Must say you do need some irons though, your rail looks naked 😉. Still awaiting my gasblock from Strike Industries (obviously). Shame I don’t have a RIF to put it on at the moment...

    THE TM MWS thread

    @Lozart I have seen that yes, shame I don't really need all the stuff that comes with it, at most I'd use the upper and lower, not really digging the rest I must say. Plus I'd be stuck with almost a complete set of Strike Industries stuff I don't have a use for. Also the price, I can get 2 MWS' for that money 🤣.
