    ASG MK23 SOCOM

    At the time of writing this i have only done some back garden plinking with this gun, but i will update this when i have chance to skirmish it with more details ... and some pics. So i have done what i said (in my CYMA g18c AEP review) i wouldn't do and i have bough myself a gas pistol, but not any gas pistol, as there is method in my particular brand of madness, let me enlighten you let me start of with a quick pro/cons Pro's 1) its cheap, they can be had for around £60 mark 2) mags are cheap (£21 at firesupport atm) even the TM MK23 guys love them! 3) No blow back which should mean a steadier aim and (in theory) more gas efficient 4) looks good, and is quite imtimidating (more details in cons) 5) has a adjustable hop, thought it says its fixed on the box and the manual wont tell you how to get to it Con's 1) Its plastic not that well made (a small part broke off mine, not that anyone will see mind) 2) Its HUGE!!! i cannot stress how much bigger it is (with out the silencer) than say a glock, you need big hands for this gun! 3) no trades (not really an issue for me, some people like them though) 4) no blow back 5) it uses gas (sorry i detest this as gas aint that cheap, and in my view gas guns are a step back in time as pre TM famas, all airsoft was gas/compressed air) in the box you get, the gun/silencer/mag/manual and some bb's. The manual is well not that good in my view. So its cheap, but is this a bad thing? if i was to break it or loose it, i could in theory get 2 for the price of most other pistols FPS, i get 311fps on 0.25's (thats just below 350 on 0.2's), yet with the silencer on i get 358fps on 0.25's (thats just a smidge below 400 with 0.2's), please note the silencer is actually a barrel extension. as to my madness, in theory being none blow back, it should be very gas efficient, and from my arm chair tests, i can get 80 continual shots off before the mag is out of gas (which is wayyy more than my WE dragon at 29 shots). Also its very light with out the mag in. Hop - this is adjustable, but the manual wont tell you how, as to be honest its in a right bugger of a place. to get to it you have to pull the slide back 10 - 15mm untill the slide lock aligns with a small cut out in the slide, then pop the slide lock out and remove the top slide. no on the under side of the slide you can see the hop adjuster. A little note on the slide lock, its not actually a slide lock, its the hammer forward (home) safety catch, the rear safety catch is for when the hammer is cocked. Its HUGE, really i cannot stress how big this pistol is, if you have large or smaller hands this aint the gun for you. And its LONG, longer then a test match series! (with the silencer fitted). Holsters can be an issue and or problematic. Other items of note - You don't have to cock it to make the pistol ready to fire, simply insert mag ... blast away, similarly when unloading drop the mag out, and its done . cocking the gun only really cocks the hammer back. One issue is when the mag is empty of bb's, unless you watch for bb's you will be doing nothing but shooting gas (though there is a tone change in the gas blast when you are empty) It has a RIS mounting point ... so you can mount something it has a lanyard strap so what am i gunna do with it .......... i have a cunning plan nice MK23 appraisal http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/index.php/topic/20481-who-makes-the-best-mk23-socom-pistol/ Update 7/11/2014 (sorry about the huge pics .. and i know there not brilliant) so as some of you have read i had an issue with over hopping (not tested results yet). So i have taken a few pic's showing how to get to the hop adjuster and how to adjust it (if your gun is like mine) first things first .. removing the slide as you look at the side of the gun with the "slide release" facing upwards, note the cut out on the slide. pulling the slide back abit, align the slide release pin with the cut out turning the gun over push the slide release pin with the pin removed your gun will now look something like above ease the slide forward so it now looks like the above lift the top of the slide like above, and genteelly pull the slide forward now you can see and set the hop adjust If life me yours is over hopping, to get to the hop arm, you need to :- carefully push the barrel/chamber assembly slightly forward, then angle it down, before finally extracting it then looking at the hop wheel, you need to remove the chamber dust cover genteelly lift the bottom of the dust cover so, the locating pegs are clear, then repeat on the other side remove the cover looking at the top of the barrel/chamber assembly, you can see the hop arm. Ensuring that hop is wound fully off, if needed very very genteelly lift the arm upwards to remove excessive hop, keep looking down the barrel to check how the hop rubber looks. This is how mine now looks with hop off, bear in mind that you don't get loads of hop adjustment, so go easy with it. note reassembly is the reverse of disassembley, be aware that some parts need a wiggle to get in position etc special note to replacing the barrel assemble back in the slide (aligning the spring and recoil rod is tricky), also realigning the slide back on the body can be tricky. Take your time! edit 08/12/14:- One thing that was bugging me was, i wanted to use the silencer ... but not shoot at 400FPS!, after abit of google'fu i was running out of idea's as the standard silencer/barrel-extension isn't 14mm, when i accidentally found out that it has a 16mm cw thread ... then after some more google'fu i stumbled upon a "Hephaestus Kriss Vector Silencer Adapter 16mm CW to 14mm CCW" , From milspec solutions. Result - now i have a even silenter MK23 lol Edit 13/12/14:- i have also aquired a "1 x Nine Ball Under Mount Base For Marui MK23 Fixed Slide (Ver.2)" from Airsoftglobal.com £46.30 so combining that with my llm01 ... i get think i need a smaller torch lol

    Has anyone used them before? Figured I would ask before I place an order
  3. Rather then just spam up the "what have you just bought" thread, figured i would start this thread insted so after 3d printing some LRB stuff for my VSR And making some silencer foam spacers i decided to have a go at an end cap for my L96 (left is the 3d printed one, right is the original one) Which then lead me to wonder if i could make a flash hider, using the PDI one for inspiration from left to right 1) original first try, realised i had missed the thinning on the top, and part of the under side 2) unfinished print, realised i had forgot the hole in the middle 3) included the hold, but there was a the top dimension wrong 4) finished print that i have not broken out of the support matterial, had another idea 5) Finished print, this one i like, easier simpler to make etc, but the cut outs do go quite high 6) finished print, the barrel hole is intentionally off set by 2mm to try and see if this would work as a LRB modded flash hider more to follow

    Sold

    General rule of thumb is 1/3rd of the original cost of the basic gun (+/- for out of production guns and condition), plus around 1/2 for accessories (if there out of production or in good condition etc) also take into account who fitted the mods etc generally it’s worth only what someone will pay, but aim high

    Is the CSI star xr5 in white two tone

    I would advise people against getting a xr5, mine wouldn’t feed, wouldn’t hop, and the gearbox dry not abit of lube now I have stripped it and lubed it, it now feeds fine off any mag, just need to strip it gain to swap the extremely small reaps nub for a full size nub, then it should be ok

    Send Airsoftgun to germany

    Isn’t it also law in Germany that all airsoft guns have to be semi only?? Are you sure there isn’t a local airsoft store that could order it in for you?

    Strike Back Retribution

    Watched first episode ..... i hate/dis-like the fact that the 2 main male characters are scott and Stonebridge clones (bet it says made in China on there back sides ... or cyma), makes it feel cheap .... they didn’t even reverse the roles .... that said the the female characters are brilliant (especially the royal engineer lass)

  15. Anyone know of any trick with new ares efcs gearboxes ... mine dose not seem to work (tried different motors, changed battery, and programming thus far)

    1. Skara

      Skara

      if it doesn't work then the electronic board must have felt something wrong (this is what my tech said once, idk if it's true or not)

      I'd say ask them directly.

    LiPo battery problem

    Basically your battery is technically dead, the cell voltage has dropped too low. Or there is a fault in the batteries wiring. did you leave it connected inside the gun? what voltage is it saying your battery is at??
  24. Yours has a g36 optic on it
  25. sp00n

    One for the techs to ponder....

    Probably the mag pressing on the hop may be improving the nozzle/hop seal
