  1. I'm heading through to London next week for the first time in a while.

    Is there anywhere airsoft-related (or similar) you'd recommend visiting?

    I know of Wolf Armouries, and I'm flying there & back, so won't be able to buy anything gun-like, but wouldn't mind a browse, or a short shoot; be it on a range or a game.

    What is there?

      if you're looking for a game nearby, Tactical Warfare near Croydon plays Saturday and is pretty cheap

    Identify Flashlight???

    Honestly? It looks like my old £20 Maplins torch. It has the same end-cap and push-button, it took 2x AA batteries and was maybe 80 Lumens? If I can find it I'll grab a photo, but no doubt it's buried in a drawer or box somewhere.

    Rebuild of Cyma 702

    Get a new spring. Chrono it with your in-game weight to be under the limit as Proffrink says, and go from there. What do you have in currently? I have an M130 in one of my VSRs which seems to work out about right when chronoed with .43s.

    Hi from Newcastle

    Howdy fella. I'm down in Hartlepool, and play at Beacon 155 near Sunderland, and DDA; as well as others further afield. Either of those are a good choice, though DDA gets far too crowded for my liking personally. http://beacon155.org/ https://dirtydogairsoft.co.uk

    Hop up assembly help?

    The spring looks like it's the one that goes on the arm itself. Unsure about the O-ring, but I don't think it's essential. None I've used have ever had one.
  6. I hate ordering from X-Fire sometimes.
    At least it's less expensive... <_<

      Truly useless website. Their new one is just as bad too.


      Seriously it's not that hard to have proper postage calculations - it must be so expensive for them to manually calculate every shipping fee.

      It's just taken so long to even approach getting my parcel.

      It's spent about a week in customs before they've even thought about sending me the invoice.
      Annoying when it can travel all the way from Japan in under 48 hours.

      Remember as soon as it hits your local depot you can ring in - even without the letter - and pay over the phone. But yeh, HMRC have been a bit useless lately. I've something that's been stuck in there for a few days now also.

    Hi from north east

    Howdy fella! I'm down the road in Hartlepool, and sometimes game at Beacon 155 near Sunderland, as well as others further south!

    New in Lincoln, Lincolnshire

    Have a look at Camp Sparta, near Kirton in Lindsey. It's only about 40 minutes away, and an interesting site. I go there on occasion, though it's a bit of a drive for me; so I usually stay over in Hull the night before!

    New target in Yorkshire

    Ehh, it was okay. Proving Grounds isn't my favourite site; too many people for the size and too much non-stop action for my tastes, but I like the full-day scenario, and it was a handy mid-way point for me and my friends. I don't go there very often, but it makes a change! Glad you enjoyed it!

    New target in Yorkshire

    Yeah, so long as it's not on display you can carry it in whatever you like.

    New target in Yorkshire

    Hey there fella. I'm also off to Proving Grounds tomorrow! They run a bit differently to most sites; there's no individual, short games. Instead, it's one long continuous scenario, and you can just drop in/out as you wish, if you want to get something to eat, or just need a breather or whatever.

    what is dean's

    It's the connector used on the battery/gun. Deans are generally better quality than the standard Tamiya connections most AEGs come with.

    Inner Barrel Advice Required - Vz 58

    They do use the same cylinder; I've got both. (And can cause problems; see below) In all honesty; there's not really any point in going for a long inner barrel. I've put PDI 6.05s in both (A 205 and a 395mm for the Shorty and carbine respectively) and there's no noticeable difference between the two; so unless you just want the aesthetics I wouldn't bother going for an extended inner barrel. Re; the cylinders, they come with a full length (i.e. non-ported) cylinder which caused me problems with the FPS variance: As stock, The shorty would chrono at 320ish with no hop on a .20, but once I set it to a level suitable for .28s it jumped massively to 370+, whilst the carbine version had the opposite problem; with an M100 installed it would chrono around 330 with no hop, but once set would drop to around 270/280. (Both with .2s) Putting in an M4 sized cylinder in both helped remedy this, with a much smaller variance between no hop and having it set for my desired BB weight; and both dropping with increased hop as normal. Not sure if they're all affected in that way, but that's something to be aware of. As for upgrades; it uses its own hop unit, so changing the chamber is a no-go currently. It also has its own built-in hop nub, so would need modifying to change that; only the bucking can be changed as standard. I've had good results with both G&G Greens and PDI W-Hold buckings.
