  1. Thanks for your help with it. It really is. I prefer it over the Hk45 too, so it all worked out in the end.
  2. New pistol after the HK45 debacle and the multiple recommendations to get one. Glad I went for it, it's such a good pistol. More mags and a holster on the way.
  3. There are some on Amazon that take 2 x AA batteries for around £8, but they look like they wouldn't be the best quality.
  4. Their only real posts were this thread, and then a classified listing. I'm guessing not.
  5. What are you all talking about with this 'ARP-9' and 'SMG' rubbish. It's obviously an GLOCK AK-47 assault rifle, specifically the AR-15 variant.
  6. Decision: HiCapa or an FNX-45?

      Ah brilliant. Thanks! I'd checked all of the main websites and they're all sold out. I'm going to go with the FNX. Thanks for all the help :)

      I'd say the fnx is the better choice as @rocketdogbert I own both and I always chose the fnx over the hi-capa , in fact I don't know why I still.own the hi-capa 😂🤦‍♂️

  7. It's Patrol Base. I was told that getting sent my original one back wasnt intentional, and that all of their stock have been taken apart and lubed, and that they're all performing the same. So that's concerning if you're going to be paying £140 for a new pistol, as you may be receiving one that's already been tested and returned. They've confirmed that I'll be getting a refund on the pistol and the magazines, so that's good news, and I appreciate them doing that. I'll update this thread again with the final outcome, and probably stick a summary in the review section too just to make people aware.
  8. Thanks We had agreed that they'd send out a replacement pistol which had been lubed, but they've just sent my original one back and it's still suffering from the same issues, so I'm not hopeful that if I send it back again they're going to do anything different. I've asked for a full refund, for the mags and the pistol, and I'll look at going down a different route I think. Cheers for all the help chaps, I appreciate it.
  9. It does. It'll lock when the mag cools down, but it's sensitive enough that it'll disengage when inserting a fresh mag which to me doesn't seem right.
  10. They hadn't mentioned testing it @BigStew. It turns out they've sent the same one back (I was told they'd grabbed another off the shelf so it may just be luck that they grabbed my original one), but it seems to be working a bit better now that it's been stripped and lubed. It also seems to be working better when the magazines are colder compared to the temperature in my house. I'm not really sure on what's best to do. Inserting the mag with relative force still causes the slide to release, but I'll have to check to see how the slide lock works when the mag is empty tomorrow. I'm not sure if this is an issue you have @heroshark? I was under the impression it was going to be a new pistol, so I feel a little short changed as obviously stripping and living up the gun is less likely to fix the issues compared to a replacement. Feeling a little short changed at the moment, though!
  11. I've got a replacement on the way (not the one that they checked originally), but I've been told there's no guarantee that it'll be any better. It's been 'serviced and lubed', so I'll report back when it arrives.
  12. At an outrageous price which you'll vehemently defend so we get some more drama over at the Macks airsoft dreamers thread.
  13. "Oh my god I just found a gun and two passports in here, let me just see who they belong to." *flushing noise* "My mistake, just the one passport."
  14. Ok, so they've looked at it further and said that they've checked a new one and the issue is the same, but only when constantly firing as the valve freezes up, which they're saying is common with CO2 and Green Gas, and because the outside temperature is cold the valve isn't operating properly which is reducing its effectiveness leading to the slide not locking, which all makes sense. When I tested the gun I waited 24 hours with the gun sat in a warm house (20 degrees) so I feel like the air temperature should have been less of a factor. I've checked to see if the gun was tested by them indoors or outdoors to get a bit more info from them. They've said that they tried my magazine in the new pistol and it did the same thing too. They've offered to swap, send a new pistol, exchange it for the same type, or refund me, so I can't fault them on that front. I've got 2 spare mags for it so unless they're willing to refund all of it, which I'm not expecting, I'd be stuck with 2 mags that aren't any use. I'm a bit confused because there aren't many cases of this happening with the HK45, so I feel like it's not overly widespread. As @rocketdogbert said it seems more like a QC issue than an outcome of the design of it, but any advice is appreciated.
