    G&G CR16 firing issues

    Unless the gearbox is fitted with a microswitch, it could be that the moving contact is worn and allowing the trigger to push past it so that it does not move far enough forward to connect with the fixed contacts. Also the fixed contacts can get burnt out and not allow current to flow to the motor. In either case a strip down should show the problem.
  2. I suspect a lot will depend on how you are actually moving to the UK. If you are flying, then all the above information is sound, as trying to bring all your kit in on a plane can cause problems. If you are going to come overland via ferry, or Eurostar, then, depending on how much you are bringing in, it might be easier to bring it with you, together with backup docs to prove to Border Force how long you have played in Italy. Also book a game in the UK near to where you are intending to live before you come to prove you intend to continue playing here. Just make sure any RIFs are within UK site limits, as if full auto is above 370 fps you may fall foul of the ACPO limit.

    AK/SVU/SVD rail mounts

    I think you may well be right. I'm sure one of mine didn't fit properly on an AK, but did on my SVD. That said, in the end I bought a POSP for my SVD, which fitted perfectly and was centered. Bit more expensive though.

    AK/SVU/SVD rail mounts

    You can get Sportsmatch scope mounts that are adjustable for both windage and elevation, so you could get the scope centred more accurately. That said, your scope looks to be set quite high on the mount. I'd suggest looking for some low mounts to bring the scope nearer to the barrel, as you may end up with insufficient depression on the scope cross-hairs to be able to get an accurate zero. The side mount also looks quite high on the side of the AK receiver. Mine always had the scope mount only about 10mm above the barrel. That looks nearer an inch at least.

    Sold a RIF without defense

    It really is about time the whole VCRA f**kup was looked at properly as regards airsoft weapons. I've stopped airsoft now (way too old), but shoot air weapons at a local club. I have a Sig Sauer MCX CO2 powered 0.177 air rifle that looks exactly like the real thing, but is far more lethal than an airsoft version of the same rifle (if there is one). But the only stipulation on buying it is that I'm over 18. But now I've stopped playing airsoft I can't legally buy a non-lethal airsoft version of the same thing (if there is one) unless it's 51% a bright colour. That is really stupid and shows just how out of touch our MPs are when they drafted the legislation. Just how many people have been killed by being hit with an airsoft BB? Answer = zero. Not zero for airguns or real guns though.

    The Dorset Gun Company (Formerly A1 Airsoft)

    Just for an update, Dorset Gun Co are now a Section 5 Firearms dealership and no longer deal in airsoft of any kind.
  8. You can probably get the whole valve system changed for one that used by airgun shooters. It will need a bleed valve and guage, as you cannot release the fill adaptor from the gun, or smaller bottle, without releasing the pressure in the connection tube. Search online for local gun shops who should be able to point you in the direction of a dive shop that can do the swap for you, although you will have to fully de-pressurise the cylinder before they can work on it.

    Something fell out of my new rifle

    I was always under the impression that the CM16 had a moulded in flash hider that could not be removed. Has that changed?

    SA80 rail wobble

    It's a few years since I had an AA SA80 (actually I had 3) and one was turned into the V2 with the rail system. I bought my rail from Hong Kong. It was made for the G&G model but fitted perfectly with no wobble at all, but it's so long now I can't remember how it was attached.

    SA80 rail wobble

    Army Armament and G&G are usually fully compatible, so if it fits G&G it should fit AA. Are you sure it is the correct rail system for the AA? There were different ones for different makes of SA80.
  12. It will depend a lot on what pistol you like. What have you seen that looks good to you? On that may depend what manufacturer makes the type you want. The best are Tokyo Marui ("TM"), but they tend to be plastic and usually sub 300fps.

    G&P V2 gearbox overspin - HELP

    Are you sure that the small spring that returns the moving part of the trigger block has been hooked back on, or isn't otherwise broken?

    Target Shooting.

    If you want to try a club then look at what they shoot. Our club in Poole is open to almost anyone. We have by far the largest section in airguns, but plently of live fire members as well. As a 25 yard indoor range we can't cope with shotgun enthusiasts, but most everything else is welcome, including black powder. Only thing we don't do is airsoft. And we are very welcoming. From 10yo kids to 80yo+ and both sexes, all are welcome. If you are near Poole try Parkstone Gun Club.

    Target Shooting.

    I've taken the mod off of my S400 and put an air stripper on. The crack on firing is very nice, although nowhere near the volume of a 0.38 being fired in a small, indoor range. Definitely look for a local club. If you can find one with both indoor and outdoor ranges then you open up your shooting options.
