  1. Today i managed to tune it and get it firing at 345FPS on .2g with the dwell set perfectly. Glad i bought x2 48ci tanks to be honest. with 35rps this thing gulps air. But no more than every other high RPS hpa engine! Very impressed with it.
  2. Armorer Work SAI Hi Capa, or the TM Gold Match Hi Capa?

      You want an awesome gun? Buy the TM

      You want a blingy gun? Buy the AW

      Would say a Regular TM 5.1 HiCapa for the best parts compatibility.

      Not yet bought it, but a TM hi cappa will be my next major purchase!! 

       

      Done a bit of research and all roads lead to TM it seems.

  3. Thanks hahaha I doubt it. I have no interest in recoil and i think its just an extra waste of air in my opinion.
  4. Wolverine MTW. All thats needed is to modify my magpul pistol grip so it fits the gun. Cant fault this gun at all. Doubt ill be going back to AEG's after this.
  5. Brief first impressions/ review of the Wolverine MTW over in the HPA threads for anyone that's interested. 

  6. Havent had chance to tune and shoot it yet but first impressions: I have never handled an airsoft weapon of this quality. When they call it a "training weapon" they werent kidding. I am very impressed at how compatible the parts are for these things. Ive chucked a bunch of aftermarket parts on as you can see, which confirmed for me almost everything is compatible with Milspec, AEG, and GBBR parts which is handy for anyone moving over to HPA that previously owned an M4/AR based gun. I am very glad wolverine made their rail system M-LOK over keymod. looks a feels 100 times nicer. I was lost for words at how light this thing was despite it being 90% full metal. I could give this to a young teenager and they would be able to sport this all day without a problem. Definitely lighter than my G&G Scar-L. Aesthetically and Ergonomically I cant find a single fault with the base gun bar two things. The only issues I faced was the split receiver (these things break down exactly like real AR's) was abit wobbly. Fortunately I had a spare G&P magic pin which resolved this issue right away. I havent seen many people speak about this issue on the forum so i could have been unlucky. But either way, if you find the same issues, its less than a tenner to amend. Secondly, my after market stock (AEG) was very wobbly when fitting. This was to be expected as ive heard many people mention this on the Wolverine Owners group on facebook. Easiest solution in the world: couple strips of electrical tape either side & the top of the buffer tube (where it would be hidden under the stock), slid the stock back ona nd no wobble at all. You'd never know the tape was there by sight also. My only suggestion to wolverine would be to have some kind of sling mount added to the stock gun or at least have it as a option in their "gun builder" on their site or high pressure airsoft's site. I had to find a mil spec AR sling mount end plate on ebay so i can use my single point sling.
  7. MTW arrived last week. Getting Bottles filled today so will post updates and feedback shortly.
  8. I've got one on the way from the states. Christ knows when it will get here though lol. Swapping to HPA is expensive as f***.
  9. Lmao sorry I wrote this after midnight half asleep I'll amend this later. There are no failing parts. Marks on the gun, a dummy bolt/bolt catch that doesnt even affect how the gun functions, and stiff fire selector (that still works) hardly means the guns "fails". It shoots fine. It has a fuse. Which in my opinion is safe enough. But if you dont agree, it is exactly why i mentioned it could do with a mosfet. In all honesty i might even fit one myself before selling the gun! Yes, any gun can run 11.1V Lipos but any with standard gearbox parts will wear excessively or break pretty quick. This has been worked on and upgraded so it can handle the power. So IMO its ready from a mechanical point of view, and as ive mentioned if you dont think its safe, buy a mosfet! The gearbox was only greased when I opened up the shell (poor wording). However, after every game, I used abbey spray lubricant for cleaning the barrel, lubricating any seals/ orings, and mechanical parts such as the folding stock hinge. Sorry for the poor wording
  10. Make/brand: G&G Scar L CQC About 3/4 years old but in that time its been skirmished around 10 times and each time it was cleaned and greased after. Shoots consistently between 310-320 FPS. Has had a full high speed gearbox rebuild. This includes the following: SHS 13:1 High Speed Gears Piston has been weight reduced New Bearings AOE Corrected prior to new motor Shimmed and greased to perfection. Nuprol High speed motor. Brand new. Havent skirmished since fitting this but test firing has shown major improvements to the gun. AOE could do with being perfected again to reduce any excessive motor whine. This is very easy to do yourself if you look it up on youtube. Or a decent tech could do it for about £20. This allows the gun to run with 11.1v lipo's without a problem. ROF is insane. Roughly 35-40 rps. I suggest using high quality mags. I have found cheaper mid caps struggle to keep up. No work is needed for this gun if youre looking to buy something and take it to a skirmish straight away. It doesn't skip a beat. The original hop up has worked so well in this gun I never needed to replace or upgrade it. I would say the only things this gun would need to make it absolutely perfect are a Mosfet and a Tightbore Barrel. Aswell as having the AOE tuned again so theres less motor whine. Bad points: Minor scratches and usual skirmish marks Bolt catch unfortunately doesn't hold the bolt back, this has always been the case sine I bought the gun & is common with most G&G scar's Fire selector is pretty stiff. This has something to do with the selector plate. Any accessories included: The gun will come with a barrel extension, magpul mbus sights, original sights, Nuprol 11.1v lipo battery (used literally once), 9.9v LiFE Battery, original box, and a 450rd g&g metal mag. Pictures: (I hope the engraved holo sight in the last pic is enough proof the gun is actually mine)
  11. Downsides to being 6 foot 4.... posted a grenade around the corner at about knee/waist height and get banned from using pyros for the day because it was still too high.... typical hahaha, my bad!

      @Esoterick I've wondered the same thing. The usual reply I get from the shooter when asked if the head shot was necessary is oh it must have been the wind or the hop... (how its windy indoors is a bit of a mystery)

      From a marshals or opposing players view, the waist height of a tall player is pretty high. You said it was knee/waist high, quite a big difference between the two.

      If I were crouched behind the corner your waist height is almost level to my face.

      The mall is sh*t hot strict on hard pyro being knee high only though, for good reason though.

      Playing devils advocate here but if someone decides to crouch down knowing that grenades are posted at knee/waist height then isn't that also down to the person on the receiving end knowing the risks of being that low down? I've been laid down before and had solid state BFG's land on me where they have been posted into the room I was in and knew that could happen... I do agree though that there is a fairly large difference between knee and waist height dependent on your height as well.

  12. *wobbly barrel*

    *sticks loads of foam in RIS so barrel cant wobbe* 

    job done.

  13. Lmfao just because youve been airsofting once is not a defence. Unless you have a site membership, a UKARA registration, or the rifle youve painted is your dads/brothers/boyfriends/whatever who has one/ that is registered..... buying a two tone gun and painting it black is manufacturing and RIF...... resultantly breaching and violating the VCRA = Illegal.
  14. I went last sunday. Firstly i would like to say this is no disrespect to any staff at this site. I did enjoy my day and i couldn't fault how f***ing lovely the staff and marshals were. I would like to return and i hope there are no hard feelings about this post. There are just rooms for improvement and then i would 100% consider being a regular player for sure. If this causes offence or concern any members of staff that may see this are free to contact me here to discuss. In my opinion compared to the other local sites in and around berkshire. The day i went (and by the sounds of things other days since its been open aswell), was just run poorly and it was very boring...... Firstly the safety brief covered everything most safety briefs cover, however the lad that explained it was quiet as f*ck. If you werent close to him you couldnt hear him. This could be dangerous for new players or those that may not be familiar with the site. Getting your gun chrono'd was practically pointless. They read your reading and sent you on your way. No tag on your gun or anything. I saw and overheard two lads in the safe zone purposely not get chrono'd because no-one would have been able to tell if they had or hadnt..... This potentially allowed players with hot guns play without being caught. Game briefs were explained very poorly with no indication where certain areas marshals mentioned actually were. I spent a whole game trying to find where a flag was we had to capture. So no-one had an actual clue what they were doing half the time. During game briefs (and i think this f*cked me off the most) players AND MARSHALS found it funny to shoot eachother. Now this happens nearly everywhere i go airsofting and i get it, its banter and it can be funny, but this site took the piss. People would be running around spraying eachother with high ROF guns, shotguns, and even launchers. While this is all shits and giggles there is a time and a place, and during a game brief where people are trying to listen, this was dangerous, stupid and overall annoying. On top of the stupidity during game briefs, someone (i honestly wasnt able to work out who, player or marshal) would set off firecracker bangers, these werent BFG's these were actual fireworks which were even louder than .12g blanks... thats saying something. At one occasion one went off next to someones foot which caused them to fall over aswell as burning their legs. Setting one or two off to scare people is funny, im not a grumpy ass hole i promise. But I dont think i need to explain how annoying and dangerous that was and how the marshalls would encourage it... Set a f*cking example. Moving onto game play We played on the same "map" the entire day which was a pretty open woodland field with no features or anything other than a couple small huts and trenches. While this is great for long ranged combat it felt like we were being picked off by DMR's and snipers all day and those with AEG's and GBBR's had no proper combat most of the day. Compared to the other fields this site had to offer i personally think this was the worst. When i questioned this with a marshal they explained it was because paintballers were also playing that day and they didnt want confusion. While i understand this, it doesnt take a genius to communicate with the paintball company so both airsofters and paintballers could play on other fields while still staying a good distance from eachother to avoid confusion. Hit taking was very good, i didnt once have to question myself whether my shots were falling short or people were cheating or simply not noticing that they were hit. It was a pleasant surprise. Marshals would also occasionally shoot players with their own pistols as a "hit checking" precaution and allowed players to get back into cover and continue playing. This meant everyone was playing fairly and honestly. While this isnt really the sites fault they could have enforced this way more: DEAD PLAYERS DO NOT TALK. On so many occasions people who were dead would walk past me and whisper "theres 3 of them behind that bush they dont know youre here" or just give away information of enemy players positions. Ruins the fun. Team balancing was awful. They put all the rentals and young players on one team with a couple adults (me and my friends lmao) and then all the clearly experienced players with proper kit on the other, i dont need to explain who spent their day pinned in their regen point........ This lead to the majority of my team just walking back to the safe zone in the middle of a game. Even when mentioned to marshals there was no change. The website says walk on is £20 and it includes a hotdog and you can get a pizza for £5 more. I chose pizza and wherever they ordered them for they were 8 short so people had to go without pizza and get food from the paintball kitchen to the same value. Kinda sucks.... Also, this might be petty but at the start of the day i needed my lipo's charged, gave them to the lad in the shop before i even signed in and got chrono'd and he just left them on the side and forgot about them for half the day.... so i had to use my SMG-8 in a woodland site for hours which you can imagine was wank.
