  1. Lighter load means easier to run 😄 so easier to play the game. I usually carry 3-4 mags and a pistol, that's it.
  2. Smart looking gnu that, leave it as is.
  3. That's a neat setup. Simple loadouts are the best 👌
  4. Floppy holsters are just one of these things that I assumed happened and there was no fix... I bought my crossdraw vest off Amazon and its decent... nothing special but perfectly functional without need to add anything else. I assume its similar to your one... you could always remove the holster part and get a leg mounted one?
  5. I wear contacts most days and have done so during the skirmishes I've been to this far. Would be nice to have the option of specs if I fancied a day off them, which i do regularly. That said contacts make things easier as stated above.
  6. Well folks, thanks for all your thoughts and anecdotes. Much food for thought. Favourite contender is the Valken, however still tempted by the fencer hood. Decisions decisions... Eezer G
  7. Haha. I don't have LiPos so can't comment 😅 maybe the fencer hood isn't such a bad idea after all. Certainly a hell of a lot more affordable and no fogging...
  8. Hi folks. Looking for advice. Looking to get a helmet and/or full mask to go with my scifi loadout (see Loadout thread). Mrs. Eezer G is going to get it as a Christmas present. I wear contacts/glasses so would be nice to have something I can wear glasses under. Have tried various goggles however I sweat like a pig and fogging is a nightmare. I've tried borrowing a mesh fencer-style hood at my last skirmish which worked great and protected me ears however I'm nervous about BBs splitting and making their way in between the mesh to hit the eyes. Have considered the Valken MI7 as it looks like the kind of thing I'm after. Some great helmets on Etsy however they are prohibitively expensive. Have also looked at Amazon however I don't trust the Chinesium "quality" with my eyes... Does anyone have any recommendations? My budget is sub-£100, ideally much less than that, so I'd probably be looking at a mask rather than full helmet. Previously had a MICH2k which I wore with a balaclava, it made me sweat like hell and also provided a rather attractive target fir snipers so I dumped that idea.
  9. Would agree with this 100%. The gun is only one small part of your loadout. Think what else you need. Clothing and protection wise mainly. Not just for looks- you want something that's practical, conformable and isn't going to make you drown in sweat. What site will you be playing at, what camo or colour will work well there etc. Eye pro is your most important thing imo.
  10. See this:- Couple of points if I may. -Metals not all its cracked up to be. Yes it's more durable, more like the real thing etc but it's also heavier. Plastic guns are easier to wield through the day (especially for newbies). -Look for bundle deals where batts, chargers, mags etc included. Makes things easier and better value. -From personal experience, I bought a Lancer Tactical M933 as my first AEG. £100 and everything included - decent battery, decent charger, hi cap mag, cleaning rod. Many of the CYMAs also come with all the bits n bobs included and are generally excellent value.
  11. My mates CM513 cost 80 quid new and is a great gun. Absolute bargain and plenty cash left over for more fun stuff.
  12. I've got an M56 (B model, stockless). PB sell them for about 40 quid. A pack of 4 shells can be had for about £8.99. Hell of an amount short of 100 quid. Still, a nice idea.
  13. Had this for a few months now and decided to do a review of it. Name: APS Urban Assault Rifle v2 FPS: Chrono'd @ 340fps without hop on 0.2g Hop Up: Er... yes Mag Capacity: 1x 300 STANAG, 1x 150 shorty Battery: 8.4v block NiMH, rear wired Material: Mainly plastic, metal flash hider, inner barrel, gearbox Overview:- A nice original looking bullpup that is not based on a real steel design. Not too many around so unique. Very sci-fi looking (think Halo etc) and uses STANAG mags. Lots of rail space for assorted baubles if you are so minded. Top rail is raised which is useful for mounting optics. Comes equipped with QD sling mount. V3 gearbox so internally like an AK. 410mm inner barrel. Also, a nice feature is that all controls are fully ambidextrous and can be customised, making this a very useful weapon for lefties. In Use:- Very ergonomic, all controls fall nicely to hand. Reasonably light at 2.4kg. Short length (64cm) so ideal for CQB. Rear-weighted as all bullpups are, personally I dont mind this as the weight digs in to your shoulder making for a very front-light, manoeuvrable gun. Chrono'd at 340fps with no hop and 0.2g, with hop applied it seems to have good range at my woodland site (don't ask me to estimate distances!), certainly in excess of my M4, making it possible to build a DMR platform on it. Rate of fire on a standard 8.4v block NiMH battery is reasonable, I'd estimate 10-15rps. Another neat feature is the gun can be field stripped without any tools - three pins hold the receiver together, with three holes rather helpfully placed on the top rail to hold the pins so they don't get lost. Critcisms:- -It's plastic. Personally I dont mind that - I'd rather have a nice light gun - however this may put some off. It is a budget gun so it's it's be expected. The plastic doesn't feel super strong so we will see how it holds up in use. -Incompatible with mid-caps. This has been the UAR's main criticism from day one. Why the design hasnt been changed I don't understand, however the mag well can be dremelled in order to make them fit. This is well-documented online, I've yet to try it but it's a pain nonetheless. -Fire selector is a bit funny. It's easy to flick from safe to full auto - perhaps too easy as it's prone to accidentally knocking it off safe. Also switching from safe back to full auto is a bit of a fudge and it works better returning to safe then full auto. Summary:- A nicely-priced gun (around £140) that is packed with many useful features, uniquely styled (not another frigging M4) and has rather decent performance out of the box. If I'm honest it's the Halo-ish styling that attracted me to it in the first place as I wanted a sci fi loadout. Someone has created a 3D-printed kit to convert the UAR to the BR55 Battle Rifle if that tickles your fancy. It's probably the cheapest bullpup on the market and also probably the lightest, the Cybergun FN2000 and S&T Tavor being both more expensive and weighty. Also the uniquely useful features of this gun really sell it to me. It also performs well having the range and velocity to handle outdoor engagements, certainly better than my M4. Also they seem to be quite rare in the UK so it's nice to field an original weapon. Would I recommend it? Without question. It's a fantastic wee bullpup. Would I buy another? Of course I would. And maybe even convert the 2nd one to a BR55...
