  1. BB subscription service

    Might be better to target site owners who sell BBs onsite. It's a cool idea but I don't play "every X weeks", just as/when I fancy it so as a recreational plinker it wouldn't be any good for me personally.
  2. Shooting range

    If they're used to air rifles then they should probably have overlapping security/safety protocols in place to cover an airsoft RIF. Only thing I can think is that they don't fancy having plastic BBs lying around.... Also, depends what kind of range they have set up - if you shoot a pellet at wood it will either go into the wood or bounce off probably a few feet - a plastic BB hitting wood can ping off it a considerable distance. **Edit** - if you just want to zero scopes and change a spring you can ask basically anyone with private land if you could use their land for a short while , since you're not shooting at people- maybe offer a local farmer a few beers or something along those lines.... You'll look like a mentalist but I wouldn't let that get ya down
  3. O-rings.

    If you can't find an O-ring to fit your mag this stuff works too: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Blue-Gasket-Maker-RTV-silicon-high-temp-sealer-instant-sealant-water-oil-resists/252800552624?epid=602577438&hash=item3adc164eb0:g:eYUAAOSw~AVYvWZO
  4. What would be a good DMR?

    I have a Krytac CRB (which has been upgraded - not out of choice, a few things broke on it so I put some high quality parts in there) I also have a KJW KC-02 (this is also sold under a re-brand as an ASG STC - or Special Teams Carbine) I can tell you FOR SURE that the best value out of both of them is the KC02. Don't get me wrong the Krytac is an amazing AEG but it's just not as satisfying to use as the KC02. IMO - here are some of the top qualities of the KJW KC-02/ASG STC: They have a shed load of room for upgrades, despite being great out of the box. They have a wonderful community such as FB pages etc. which explain a load on how to take them apart, how they work etc. - this makes them a great GBBR option for beginners who are willing to learn. They're cheap (enough) They're light They're durable They're accurate, and have great effective range. They fit a lot of M4 externals, such as pistol grips or butt stocks, but they are actually modeled on the ruger 10/22, which means that most 10/22 real steel stocks and parts fit! They're incredibly versatile, you can use green gas, C02 or HPA to operate. If someone said "you have 1 shot to hit this object from xyz meters away for £1million" - I'd be picking up my KC02.
  5. What does airsoft cost?

    At least 10 times what you told your mrs it costs.
  6. Anything changed in airsoft last 3 years?

    I got a Cyma tactical AK as my first ever RIF. Since, I've invested hundreds, maybe thousands into all sorts of guns and upgrades, including Krytac, KJW KC-02 w/upgrades, JG VSR etc. The Cyma AK honestly stands up to all of them. It's not quite as good in terms of effective range, or RPS, but the difference is small when compared to the difference in price! The only gripe I have with it is that the battery slot had awkward dimensions.

  8. Indoor shooting Range

    I'm with the guy who uses cardboard boxes filled with foam/paper, so I can't offer different first-hand experience on the target making part. One thing that hasn't been covered though, is this: If your RIF cost you more than £50 - i.e. if it's at least semi-kinda-half-decent-ish - DO NOT RE-USE the BBs you're firing at your targets. they'll break your gun eventually Even small amounts of paper/debris/dust etc can cause internal problems which can easily be avoided by using fresh BBs every time you fancy a plink.
  9. Have I been kidding myself?

    Good luck bud, you'll never look back!
  10. That response could be applied to all aspects of this thread xD
  11. Or better at shouting "Hit" The theory behind using bio bbs is surely not under any scrutiny - nobody can argue against that fact that it's a good idea, we just need some company to figure out how to make them stand up to non-bios in both cost and performance. Perhaps somebody should get Elon Musk into airsoft.
  12. Never even thought about it like that
  13. Not read every reply (brace for flaming) but here's my two cents This has probably already been mentioned but the two problems with bio BBs are (where players are concerned) 1) They (in my experience, correct me if wrong) are generally much more expensive than non-bio BBs. 2) They are known for swelling causing all sorts of jams & problems to your expensive RIF (or they were a few years ago when i looked into this). That aside, yes in an ideal world it would be great if everyone used bio BBs but looking at it as a whole, the remains a few thousand skirmishers pew-pewing each other on a Saturday is a drop in the ocean compared with the impact on the environment caused by big-time industry.
  14. AEG starter bundles

    Hey man just spend a bit of time looking through google and these forums, input your own preferences, such as the type of thing you'd prefer and check out all the sites you come across. (as a starter I'd STRONGLY recommend an electric rifle or "AEG" over a gas one to begin with). For a lower budget I'd personally recommend TiwanGun.com but remember if you don't have a UKARA (again, search it on here and research it) make sure you get a TWO-TONE gun, or customs will have it! The other bit of confusion you'll run into is batteries.... There's a LOAD of stuff on batteries on these forums and around google etc. but to summarise from my limited knowledge, but not so limited experience, I'd say: 1. Get a LiPO battery and NOT a NimH 2. Get a "Smart charger" 3. The bigger the "MAH" number is for the battery, generally - the longer it will last before it needs recharging 4.The smaller the physical dimensions of the battery (it's height, width and depth), the better - it's more likely to fit in your rifle if it's smaller - obviously. 5. Voltage - this can get really technical based on your rifle, generally a better, or more expensive rifle(RIF) will be able to handle a higher voltage of LiPO battery (without getting into details about MOSFET etc.) - 7.4v is what you should aim for with a budget gun. --To summarise on batteries: Get the smallest 7.4v battery you can with the highest MAH number, and definitely a smart charger. AAAAAAAAAAND finally: DO NOT BUY CHEAP EYE PROTECTION, and a good pair of boots will go a long, long, long way. Literally.
  15. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds XBOX ONE

    Hi all, Since the beta has been patched for this game on Xbox One, it's now very playable and the closest game (tactically) to a game of airsoft that I've found (800m long shots aside lol) There is already a thread for this for PC version here: https://airsoft-forums.uk/index.php?/topic/35133-playerunknowns-battlegrounds/ Anyone wanting to team up on Xbox one, either comment here or PM me and we can buddy up Cheers, Cal.
