  1. Being the new guy on the block I apolitically apologise most reservedly for taking this thread off-topic and making you 'all talk like sensible airsofters' 😎 But ODIN > I never knew. the sidewinder existed until recently and to get a legit one seems like damn impossible. Sadly in the Far East patents aren't worth Jack unless its Lego aka the Lepin debate. It's always gonna be difficult for a small business owner to go up against the bigger machine as their great ideas will get pinched by the corporate giants who have the capacity to quickly produce knock-offs cheaply and hence corner the market.
  2. I thought Donald Trump was the only one with a knock-off tan? 🤣
  3. Based on your logic and using that example as an example it's actually a fair price for the whole package.. ideally you'd be looking at no more than 60% value for a used AEG (dependant on age/use) I hazard to guess. Oh and I expect upgrades are only worth something if you as the buyer want them and deem them worthy... If you spend £600 kitting out your new AEG with superpower type upgrades and then expect a 2nd hand buyer to pay say £400 for them I think your expectation will be ill founded. It's just coincidence that advert turned up in the classified lol
  4. Why are used TM recoils so expensive... more so the HK variants? For example a used Delta say 1 one year old which has had say 40 mags through it with a mozzie still commands around £500'ish. I mean the gun is new for around £565 and granted a mozzie could set you back £120 -150 if you go for a titan advanced that is.... What gives?
  5. Update: I've gone 417... now to stick a M95 in when I get it...but that's all... gonna be the first gun I don't go bonkers with upgrades I think..
  6. Hi folks, Ok, I took apart a recoil PTS EPM mag to clean it as the bb's kept getting jammed... And when I popped out the spring and separated both halves of the inner mag a square nut fell out! I can't figure out where the damn thing goes... Any ideas? Update: Erm total blonde moment... it was the nut into which the base plate screw screws into lol.... I thought I was screwed earlier 😂
  7. Yeah, it's probably a block of flats now... but damn it was a great place for CQB. That basement was well scary and I swear it was rat infested lol
  8. That's the one.... what ever happened to it?
  9. I used to play at an indoor site in Leicester years ago. It was a three story site with a dark basement, a ground floor which was the size of a football pitch and the 1st floor which were offices. I remember once running out of the basement up some stairs shooting in the direction I was facing but running backwards... then wallop. I turned snd smacked straight into a wooden wall/barrier. I went flying in that I bounced off the wall... however I didn't drop my gun lol... A Marshall came running over to see if I was ok and then asked if I had signed the waiver form lol... It was one of the best CQB sites I've ever played at... and the basement.... yikes... dark, wet, a few light bulbs pure heart thumping game play...
  10. Get a dremmel with a sanding stone and finish it off. The some JB weld and paint it.. Best thing is to use some magpul xtm covers though if you can...
  11. Oh crikey that threesome brings back memories! I seriously had all three at one point 😂
  12. Oh I can write a whole essay on those.... Get the one you really really fancy... you don't want to be going out onto the field with a ford fiesta do you? Mind you I'm one to talk as I can't make my mind up with another brand lol
  13. That's valid point. I'm the same height and I don't mind heavy guns. My systema weighs a bloody tonne and I don't mind karting that around, but it's a small form factor so easy to use and sling around. I guess it's different when the weight is distributed up front so it will get a tad tiring to run around I expect. Solution bipod and dry ground to lay on! And no I'm not getting down in the wet.... Re the cylinder the 417 will use a type D vented cylinder on a 300mm inner barrel. A longer barrel at 407mm will need a type B. I do have a spare unvented pommy type A laying around somewhere though...
  14. Which one do you prefer? I'm kinda swaying towards the 417 too... I think... just need a good shove to make my mind up I think...
  15. To be honest I really had no plans to make DMR... I like the look of both as they both ally to different styles of play. I already own 2 CQBR and the SOCOM. Hell I've even got a sniper springer laying around which I've totally forgotten about. If I stick a longer barrel, and shove a m100 into it and a firefly hop setup then I should get a better effective range I expect.. No other upgrades.
