  1. My airsoft addiction is getting so bad, I use AEG as unit of currency. :( The last week has cost me 2 AEGs.

    1. Airsoft-Ed


      What's the exchange rate like at the moment?

      1 AEG per 200 Sterling?


      Sounds like an expensive week either way.

    2. Grounded_Pilot


      It does vary. About £150... buying an AEG any higher than that is just brand power, or an LMG. :P

  2. It is December, right? Yet RM managed a less than 24hr turn around on a 1st Class delivery!? Dafuq?

    1. Airsoft-Ed


      They're shit.


      End of story.

    2. TPI


      I ususaly get Great Service with them..


      but then again i have a Business Account with them.

  3. Lol. Cheaper to import an S&T Mosin Nagant, with an SRC TT-33 Tokarev and a spare mag, than it is to buy the rifle on it's own from Z1! haha

      Customs ???

    2. Airsoft-Ed


      Is the S&T the Zeta Labs one? 'Cos I know Ares, S&T and ZLabs are all under one umbrella now.


      Could you review the Nagant if you get one? My brother would kill someone for one but I'm convinced it'll be no good. Just got a feeling.

      Inclusive of customs @ 20% it'll cost me about £350, but before taxes (including $103 shipping fees! :o!!) the total is £288...


      Yeah it is the S&T/Ares Version. I love Ares so much, all their guns are fricking awesome from my own experience, although never tried their gas versions...!

  4. Anyone used "Guarder Power Up Gas"? I want a Full metal GBB, but don't want it venting!

      Take it back, it's not that much more. I've never used an NS2 system... how do they work better in the cold, exactly? :P

      And It'd cost me about £130 to import a single KWA + 1 extra mag, + taxes!

    3. Airsoft-Ed


      I'm not sure how they work, but I've seen a KWA NS2 Glock 26... I think it was a 26... But anyway, full metal and it got through an entire mag and the slide locked in very cold weather. My TM Sig managed about 15 shots but the slide didn't even cycle on the last shot. So better than TM in the cold, it would seem. I wish I'd got the KWA Sig now.

      You wish that ed, until you have to order every mag/part from the US/HK :P

  5. Mmm... guns... :) mmm... bills :(

  6. Ermahgerd... why are After Eights sooooo nice?! nomnomnomnom...

      They're nothing compared to the almighty Rolo yoghurt.

  7. Successfully adapted my Skorpion Vz.61 to use an 11.1v LiPo...

  8. Bah-Humbug! Christmas time= sales of my beloved guns time :(

  9. 'oh no, teh beard of death and awkward kissing is here to stay for month! :(

  10. Just found out my site won't allow me to make a non-sniper style weapon a DMR! Just lost some business... suckers!

      surely if locked it to semi they could not refuse it i know my sight allow that just buy a spare selector plate and file it down so even if you select full auto it would only fire semi all i would need to do at my site is pop a screw in the receiver to stop me turning the selector switch to full auto some sites hey..... and ed that would be wicked to see and imagine the bragging rights


    3. Grounded_Pilot


      Indeed! I've built a DMR MP5 before. I took a broken G&G Mp5A4 with a V2 gearbox and did a switch-a-rooney with an old A&K SR25. Then I had 2 working guns, and all I needed to do then was wire the MP5 for lipos, and sort out a decent barrel and hop. Simples!

    4. Grounded_Pilot


      Oh just wait until they hear of my MP7 project... how I'm gonna make it 300+fps I don't know.. best there is out there is the MAG 130% spring+piston sets!

  11. Successfully upgraded an Skorpion to use normal batteries... anyone got a spare SMG going I can play with? :D

  12. All I can think is TAE...

    1. Deva


      Bit silly that I never checked elsewhere, right? haha.. we're running the same software as them and UKAZ so it is inevitable we'll look similar-ish.

    2. Grounded_Pilot


      Yes, not that it's an issue! Very user friendly... I like the status idea too. Much less formal!
