  1. What are Laylax 6.20 barrels like? Seen a bit cheap for what they are.

      @Cheeserush: It's to do with volumisation, but it's worth Googling. Has less of an effect than people think as it's the internal surface polish that matters more for consistency.

    3. Cheeserush

      Cheeserush

      Yeah obviously the smoother the surface the better the air flow etc was just more curious of the science but thanks for your input guys

    4. proffrink

      proffrink

      Well, not obvious to some - I'm saying the finish makes up 90% of the consistency, not the bore diameter. Use Google if interested.

  2. Just a reminder for sellers - it's one bump every seven days, as the rules state. Cheers!

  3. Bit weird, company that I cancelled an order with, kept my money and hasn't responded to my emails about it.. Time for a Paypal claim

      Cancelled the order on the 7th so a while ago, I won't name names if they refund before the claim ends, as they seem like a decent company. No response yet

      They dont sound like a decent company if you have had the hassle of putting in a claim and not replying to your emails.

      I've been asked by PayPal to return the items to them, even though this for getting a refund after cancelling an order..

  4. Taiwangun have a massive sale going on. Cyma AK47 for stupid cheap (£60)

      See what you mean about the different packaging, but worth approaching with caution for sure.

      My first order of BBKings had a small hole in the bag, so the BB's jammed up my rifles. See how it'll go with this batch

  6. S&T PPSH doesn't work, plug in a battery and it doesn't fire, it's completely dead. Does anyone here know who could have a look at it and fix it?

      ohhhh yeah. It might be possible to undo the bolts and slip it out?

      Those microswitches often die. Opening the gearbox is ok, as you can take the spring out first. Don't buy the switch from an airsoft shop, it's a standard electrical part: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231935846636?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

      Thanks for the link! Hopefully it is just that.

  7. Anyone know where I can get a AA Type 96 hop-up arm? Mine's gone missing and cannot for the life of me find spares online.

  8. Anyone interested in a Mancraft SDiK kit? mine isn't going to get used seeing as my L96 is bust.

      L96's are pretty easy to work on, what's broken or missing? I may have a few spares knocking about :)

    3. Monty

      Monty

      It's a 'UTG' / AW308, so parts are hard to find for it. The pin for the bolt has gone missing, and the zero-trigger is slam firing even though the sear engages with the trigger with no problems.

    4. Hef Legend

      Hef Legend

      hmmm, just pick up a well l96 from TG cheap and put everything in that I guess

       

  9. Anyone know of a 500 FPS spring on .20G BB's?

      In aeg's I use these:

      http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-Nylon-Plastic-SPACERS-Standoff-Washer-M3-M4-M5-M6-M8-M10-or-M13-12-PACK-/331684716193?var=&hash=item4d39f31ea1:m:m83Kn_qgDKqTDOiMEmnM_Tw

      15mm O/D & 5mm or 10mm thick on Shortstroke setups to up fps a bit. check spring don't bottom out on coils or spring guide but G&G use a 5mm spacer in Combat Machines

    3. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      May need to double check internal diameter of svd piston but should be about 15mm also if using aeg springs

    4. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      soz - reposted the stuff with correct diameter = 15mm for spring spacing inside piston. 20mm are sorbo/neoprene AoE pads. 15mm spring spacers, my bad

  10. Anyone know where I can get a 64GB memory card for a Vita for a reasonable price, rather than £60 - £100..

      Unfortunately the Vita just never sold well enough for the third party companies to start making cards. Shame, it's a nice piece of kit!

      Damn, just got the white version too, I suppose I can get the 16GB..

  12. Anyone interested in an A&K SVD or a Well MB02 for £65 each? SVD has a Madbull tightbore and the MB02 has a Maple leaf diamond bucking (hard). Both work fine. Will get a sales thread up later on this evening.

      I have finally found a gun that will look better painted bright yellow and black. It looks like a toy as opposed a RIF.

      Squeaky plastic like their Famas that's over 10 years old (i think?). :(

    4. proffrink

      It's still the trigger response that kills the AA12 for me when it comes to CQB. I can't stand waiting for a stock AEG gearbox to spool up.

  18. I seriously encourage new users to use the search function before starting another 'first gun' thread.

      Same Eso. I don't have the ability to do that djben, but it'll be something I could bring up with Dev.

  19. Mr.Examiner, how do you expect me to drive in an 'eco safe manner' when you want me to come out of a junction straight onto a dual carriage way in a 998cc vehicle? Daft.

      Rock-climby-Dave

      I drive a 1litre Focus ecoboost jobby and it's a great little engine, but if I were pulling onto a 60 limit from stationary, I'd be up at 5000rpm too and I'm aloud to drive?

      The major failures are really a bit of a broken system, it's very much a case of box ticking with no leeway given. It prevents certain examiners being overly nice to some people and not others, favouritism or discrimination. Do you have a way to claim the next test for free?

    3. Monty

      Monty

      I can't, unfortunately. I'll probably be taking the test in a different area in a learner vehicle next time. Forgot to mention that the examiner didn't even check how I parked in a bay.

    4. Rock-climby-Dave

      Rock-climby-Dave

      To be fair though, no one else bothers to check how they parked -_- Honestly, you see some right shite parking sometimes.

      I've only been charged sellers fees on items I've sold. It's not a subscription, but they calculate what you've sold in a month then make it into one invoice.

      Thing is I closed my account around 6 months ago, paid all remaining fees off before closing it.
