  1. Hi all Disclaimers first, apologies if this the wrong place to post this or it’s been discussed before. I did try searching for it but failed, so, here I am. I have a general question regarding the relationship between range/accuracy and barrel length on Airsoft Rifles. I mention specific guns below but am really interested in the general theory. I have a krytac vector at the moment that has a longer barrel concealed behind a mock suppressor. It’s a great gun but the barrel length is a bit frustrating for CQB. I play CQB more than outdoor so thinking about
  2. Hi Frank The pistol worked fine in the end after I’d pulled the blowback assembly apart and given it a good clean. I had no problems with the gun really, everyone who tried it liked it. I sold it to my mate though, because I couldn’t find anyone who could give me advice on upgrades. I bought a second hand Tokyo Marui hicapa 5.1. I’ve put an SAS kit on it so I can fit a tracer and a new tightbore barrel and upgraded hop. Its a beast Good luck with the BLE. Like I said, after I cleaned mine it worked a treat and never let me down. The guy I sold
  3. Some great, iconic, guns posted here. A bunch of my favourites have been posted already including those from Halo, Star Wars, Hitman and Tomb Raider. Theres one on my favourite that hasn’t been posted yet though, as below. Anyone recognise it?
  4. Yup, great fun that. Although it does rely on the attacking team getting on with it for it to be interesting. A couple of Sunday’s ago it took the attackers 30mins odd to clear out the bunkers, we were all in the last bunker like “where are they?” And “why aren’t we dead yet?” 😂 Down in the centre of Bristol there’s a wicked indoor CQB site (simply called “Bristol Airsoft”) that I play at. It’s in an old law courts, a two storey building with cells in the basement and court rooms and halls on the ground floor. We we played a great game scenario there the other day wher
  5. See screenshot below, got to love an Ali express bargain, can’t see that fogging up even for hardcore sweaters! Might not be suitable for CQB mind... 😂 (Pre-emptive Disclaimer 😊: This post is intentionally light hearted. I fully understand the importance of proper eye pro and am a personal advocate of full face protection at all times. Not sure about you, but I deeply dislike the idea of loosing my teeth to a BB.)
  6. Trawl the pages of UsedAirsoft and Prefired on the daily. That’s my tip. There’s usually someone flogging all their gear in one as a cheap bundle because they’re quitting the sport or something like that. A couple of mates of mine got their entire set of stuff from one second hand purchase for a couple of hundred quid.
  7. Bhaha..Had a go of a GBB Mp7 with a drum mag on the weekend and must admit that it was coolAF. However, I sh*t myself worrying about getting that pistol you see above back together after I’d cleaned it. There was only one screw involved and a handful of moving parts. I wouldn’t even know where to start trying to modify and maintain a GBB rifle! I think I’ll stick to batteries for the time being!
  8. Hey Sharpe / anyone else who’s reading Just wondering where you got to in the end with your mods. I’m considering swapping back to a shorter barrel for CQB play (want to fit a tracer) and am interested in upgrading to a tightbore barrel in the process. Assuming you kept the OEM krytac hop-up unit, what bucking did you use to pair it with the Prometheus barrel?
  9. I just watched a couple of videos of people taking the vector down. I reckon there’s at least a 90% chance I would fail to get it back together. I can only just about manage to wire a plug. Plus ive also now got conflicting info on barrel length and tracer compatibility! Confusion reigns, Airsoft is great! *Googles Krytac techs in local area* Thanks for all the help guys. If I do end up swapping the barrel out I’ll post what happened and some pictures just in case someone else has the same query in future.
  10. ..bants aside, if anyone has experience of what bucking would work for the Prometheus barrel and the krytac hop-up unit i’d be super grateful to hear about it.
  11. I’ve got two hands right? That means I should defiantly have 2 vectors!? ..anyone want to lend me £500?
  12. Thanks for replies all. Interesting that y’all don’t see the reduction in barrel size as a negative. On the Krytac forums the moderators there say that the extended barrel gives significant benefits in terms of FPS, range and accuracy. Well I’m interested enough now. I’ve read elsewhere that a 185mm barrel only “sticks out the end a bit” and that most tracers cover it. I’ve found Prometheus tightbore barrells on the internet for about £50. I quite like the idea that I got from some other thread of buying a second hop unit and fitting the new barrel to that to make swa
  13. I picked up a second hand Krytac Vector AEG off of Used Airsoft a while back. I’ve skirmished it a few times now and I love it, but I have a gripe with it and I don’t know what to do. The gun I picked up has the extended barrel and associated “defiance” mock suppressor. It’s great for the outdoor site I play at, it shoots at about 320 FPS and has decent range and accuracy. However when I play CQB indoors it’s way too long and I can’t put a tracer on it. (I like tracer rounds, they’re shiny.) I have thought about swapping the barrel for a shorter one and getting a “tacti
  14. I have a vector, whereas my mate went for the scorpion. A lot of our experience echos the above. I prefer the trigger on his scorpion and the three round burst fire (over the vectors 2 round), but then the vector feels a great deal sturdier to handle and, in my subjective opinion, looks much better. Battery compartment is tiny on both, but the vector’s is easier to access. As as far as performance on the field goes, there’s not a great deal to choose between the rifles. Having said that, my vector came with the mock defiance suppressor and associated extended barrel s
