    AR variants (which the 416 and 417 are) will often not go to Safe without the hammer being cocked, but if you've cocked the gun and the bolt is closed then it should go to Safe. Presumably it's a GBBR? 'Drop in' is definitely now how I'd describe changing the inner/outer barrels, fair amount of tools required and the barrel nut probably requires something extremely specific.

    WE MRE’s

    Well the sentence did read "their guns" and I barely see any of their AEGs floating around, so that was my implication tbh.

    WE MRE’s

    If WE make 'em, lol. Clearly the business plan at this point it to figure out every product that any sort of player might ever buy, find another chinese company that churns it out and just have them slap the WE logo on the packaging. Brand loyalty is a massive thing for a lot of people and tons of people buy WE guns because they're cheap and have a pretty good rep, easy expansion.

    assistance in choosing matching gear.

    Mil-Spec Monkey (amongst others) has been making those for yeeeeeeears now. What boils down to a conflict between western christian ideas and middle-eastern islamic ones is hardly a new thing after all, if you want to take a true wide-angle-lens look at it. Also the FLC stopped being gucci gear a decent number of years ago, as did ARs in that style, as I say.

    assistance in choosing matching gear.

    Based on what's visible, I'd say the base rig is a US issued FLC in DCU/Desert Tri-colour: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-DCU-MOLLE-II-Fighting-Load-Carrier-w-2-Double-Mag-Pouches-FLC-VEST-US-Army/191511887334?hash=item2c96ff7de6:g:kCwAAOSwqu9U376x:sc:USPSPriority!10016!US!-1:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true Knife is a Gerber LMF 2, Blackhawk SERPA Level 2 holster. This pic is clearly from years ago though, people haven't been setting up ARs like that for nearly a decade now. That quad rail handguard and those types of magpul accessories that are alllll over the gun are well out of fashion. It would definitely be expensive and difficult to replicate that rifle exactly but it depends how exact you want to be.

    How many guns ?

    I think the only place it's permanently mentioned is my little instagram 'bio' thingy on my account page which is one of those things people never ever look at. The army would've suited me better in terms of being a gun nerd, but I wanted to be aircrew originally, it turned out I was too blind, but they'd suckered 17-year-old me in with cool videos of jets blasting off in to the sunset and beach volleyball at that point, so I went for the next job down the list that was to do with weapons. In retrospect now I've done some time, I know there are posts in the army I'd love to go in to, but I do enjoy my cushy uniformed civvie job to be brutally honest.

    How many guns ?

    Think I'm on about.. 20-something long guns and maybe a dozen pistols... ish? Fuckin barely use any of them, from an airsoft context my RIF/gear collection is so massively OTT it's retarded. For me it's about the customisation process with RIFs and collecting/reviewing with gear, bit of photography in the mix, it just happens that airsoft was the original catalyst for all the above and I've changed focus now but I still play very occasionally for the social element. My stuff all lives at home, I take lots of pictures, upload them to 'the cloud' and then I have something to write about while I'm here in the barrack block; that's just what I like doing, it's an acceptable justification to the NSSF for getting a shot show badge and as an armourer with a kit fetish my long term plan is to (hopefully) move in to one of those industries once I get out. I don't care if someone has no such reasons for what they buy though. As long as you're not hurting anyone or directly impinging upon anyone else's life, then spend however much you like on whatever tf you like and I will absolutely cheer you on all the way. One of the greatest freedoms of being an adult in the west.

    WW2 british para smock help

    Far as I can gather from looking in to this a little bit, most smocks in WW2 didn't have a full length zip from the factory, the standard of the day was just a v-neck with maybe a 1/4 zip or draw-strings; seems to have applied to both the British denisons/windproofs as well as the camo smocks the Germans issued. Most common denison replicas in the UK seem to be from here: http://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/SearchResults.aspx?s=denison&cat=0 If you just put 'ww2 camo smock' in to ebay you'll also see what I mean. Plenty of re-enactment and ww2 militaria forums around to ask on, but if you only want something loosely correct be prepared they might get quite OCD.

    Re-kitting up

    What's the budget? Can't say anything much without knowing that. Also depends a bit where you're going to play, indoors or out. To be entirely generic, a relatively short barrelled Krytac AR variant of some sort with a TM G19 and a TRMR in a pouch will have you sorted for any situation. If you want any advice on actual gear if you're after something different to what's issued feel free to just pm me/dm on my FB page or IG.

    Not bought I'm afraid, just SHOT swag.

    Military Group Youtube

    I've watched that 2nd video before, I remember distinctly agreeing with their assessment. I disagree with 'ragging on' tbh, I found their assessment of a lot of the delusional mil-simmers out there to be entirely valid and representative of what I've seen myself.

    Macks airsoft dreamers of the week thread

    I'm fairly sure you need a FAC to buy (and presumably own) silencers/suppressors in the UK. Legally they count as a firearm same way pressure bearing parts do IIRC.

    WAS are they with it?

    Precisely, as expected, and makes complete sense. There's no getting around the physics. If you want more coverage you'll retain more heat (which can be good in winter) and add weight. Take away the coverage and you dissipate more heat and cut weight. Some PCs and chesties do vary somewhat in thickness depending on how much spacer mesh, foam, cordura and webbing they use and WAS kit is generally on the thicker side of things vs something like a BFG Plateminus or some of the laser cut chest rigs out there which are literally one layer of cordura with no padding. Just have to evaluate each product on its' merits, you can't categorise on PC versus CR.

    WAS are they with it?

    It is good to get recommendations, but that's of no relevance to what I said, please stick to the specifics. Saying 'a plate carrier' is de facto bigger/bulkier/heavier/hotter than 'a chest rig' is demonstrably not true, that's my one and only point here.
