  1. The one aspect I genuinely don't understand is the hinge point for the stock being lower down than on any other similar weapon and the fact it folds down, but only part way because then the pistol grip stops it. No idea if there's some aspect of speedsoft that makes it desirable. Then again if you want a gun this unrealistic I don't really get why you'd not just design something from the ground up that's has nothing to do with any real firearm but is cheap and easy to make with plenty of room inside to allow for easier performance increase, bigger mags/faster reloads etc. At this point in a guns' transformation in to a pure competitive implement there's no reason to hang on to the realistic appearance of the AR it began with. I know that G&G are already turning out loads of AR bits so its' easy in that sense which is probably why these guns exist, but they should definitely make them IFs instead of RIFs for the UK market.

      £10 is the max price for anything other than the crye shirts/B5 stock, P&P included.  Just pm me if you're after anything, I need to make room for new purchases haha.

  3. Apart from the above it's only really been the electric realm doing this so far. G&G are/will be doing a pistol where you can swap the slide for an entire carbine kit type deal, no idea on mag type though. Closest equivalent I can think of right now would be the KJW 10/22, rifle size gun with pistol sized magazines. You need a much smaller and lighter bolt for an airsoft GBB to work with pistol mags versus the gas capacity of rifle sized mags in a GBB AR. I suppose if you break it down the issue is people either want an 'experience' or they want performance. GBB M4s can offer some of the former, AEGs the latter, a gas pistol mag carbine won't have either the recoil experience of GBBRs or the performance (consistency, cold resistance, high capacity) of an electric gun. My personal experience has been that some TM gas pistols in standard pistol format shoot further and more accurately than a lot of the low budget/poorly maintained AEGs on any given field and obviously the pistol is tiny by comparison. I tried a pistol carbine kit once with a 1911 inside and a normal 1911 on my hip, ended up just using the normal handgun. The FPS is already around 320 with propane and what little range/accuracy you might gain with a much longer barrel can be negligible, whereas you might lose a fair bit in terms of moving fast in tight spaces. Also if you're limited to that small mag capacity then at least you have maximum manoeuvrability with the pistol.

  5. People have said multiple times in here to only wear the patches in game and nowhere else, why would you be wearing them in your garden? If you want to try on the rest of the loadout or take pictures out there or whatever, then literally just take the velcro patches off if you have multiple overlooking neighbours who really twitch their curtains.
  6. Over the years I've lost count given how many hundreds of police/sas/marine commando patches I've seen on airsofters at games who are none of the above (not to mention just about every army regiment patch, raf and navy stuff etc etc etc). I think absolute 'worst case' you would maybe take them off for any IG posting on your own accounts and the like, but even then that's playing it very safe.
  7. Certainly nobody here is saying ignorance is an excuse, far from it. Ignorance is just the fact of the matter, there's no basic training for airsoft. The bar for entry is having a bit of money (comparatively small amount in comparison to some hobbies) and the ability to get to a skirmish site and shoot a rif.
  8. Glad to hear this is finally happening some places. I don't think its' quite as epidemic an issue as some people imply given the sheer numbers of G&G combat machines out there, but when it comes to the less common weapons (non-electric ones especially) I think there will be a fair few folks who are either straight cheating or so ignorant of the basic science they don't even realise they're shooting at excessive muzzle energies.
  9. Rgr, to be honest I've never looked for one, there may be like.. single figured, in public hands (at a guesstimate) but they're probably owned by the sort of people who collect quite rabidly and never let things go.. not that I'm one to talk 🤣 But anyway you'd need to start scouring places that are very specific to real british militaria. Sadly I don't have any recommendations right now but I'd imagine there are groups on FB for people who collect the parts and accessories for SLRs and L85s that can be legally owned (mags, BFAs, bayonets etc). Maybe also groups for collectors of de-acs and for people who do reenactment.
  10. By rail do you mean the handguard B&T did in crazy-small numbers?
  11. Best thing in winter is to just pre-heat your gas canisters. If you already have a propane burner for something like a jetboil then all you need is a bit of steel wire about 3 to 4mm thick to rig up a makeshift cradle, then you can suspend the can a few inches above the outlet (you don't want it directly in the flame obviously) and 2-3 minutes warming will be more than enough to get you through a cold morning of skirmishing. Best thing is this works with any gas type, even your 134a for usage in TMs in the summer can be made effective for metal slide guns in the winter if you give it an extra minute or so of heating.
  12. Do the mag extensions add capacity or just plastic shells so you can drop em for quick reloads? That gun is top of my list of potential pistol purchases right now, but I get all my airsoft specific bits from WGC but last I looked they had magically vanished all listings of TM Glocks from their site. Presumably on account of their realistic-ish trades.
  13. lol, no concern for you big man you can do whatever the heck ya like to your own body. Just stating facts for the lurkers. Just like so many other fitness fads these things will have gone the way of the dodo in no too long.
  14. They're super fashionable right now (because of crossfit, whether airsofters know it or not) and people who've not served don't know the inevitability of the lower-body joints injuries they have coming their way.
  15. Is that a really old handguard per chance? Reminds me of some of the airsoft products you'd see back in the day when NiMh was the best battery type available and people liked to run the large types.
