  1. They have a fairly active FB page, seems pretty decent. The mine part of the site looks a little sparse, I'm guessing they aren't allowed to build any structures inside?
  2. Airsoft is banned in China, has been for years, along with anything remotely associated it seems. I've heard that banning of most gel blasters is on it's way as well. Aliexpress is just slow at making sure it complies. Companies like CYMA, E&C, JG, ZCI etc must have a special license. You can still ship Airsoft gear out of HK since it's running on a "special status", 1 country 2 systems they call it. That's due to stop in 2047, however every year Beijing seem to clamp down a little bit more. 2000 - 2010, HK stores were pretty dominate in the Airsoft world.
  3. Can't beat Airsoft and Sex Toys 🙂
  4. The real problem with our sport and shipping, in regards to China, is that the majority of Airsoft products can only be shipped out of HK. Some products can be flown out via FedEx or UPS but anything remotely gun shaped or gun related must be shipped via a boat. The smallest size you can get from HK port is a pallet (1cbm). So if you just wanted a few boxes of parts you have to pay for a full pallet. In general it's an absolute nightmare.
  5. I don't think that's quite right, before covid a pallet from China cost around £450, then went to around £600 and now back down to around the same as before. Are you sure it was for a pallet and not a 20ft container? Every day I get messages from Chinese freight agents all fighting each other for business and dropping their prices on a weekly basis. There's a clear difference though between the pricing of sea freight and domestic (Royal Mail) shipping. In fact in the past 6 months RM have reduced the price of small parcels. Currently £3.95 for Tracked 24 (1st class) for 2kg parcel, fully tracked, email and text message with photo.
  6. Only 1kg, would only be £3.95 via Royal Mail 24 Tracked service. My guess is in order to simplify their website backend shipping function they just use a single shipping weight. It's a pretty lazy way doing shipping but very tempting as it can cut a huge amount of confusion. Took me a few hours to get my head around how the shipping worked and I had to "fudge" the system in order to get it working as I wanted. So many work-arounds.
  7. Airsoft companies have been over charging for years sadly. Some do it to try to get the customer to order more items in the attempt to justify the shipping etc. I actually subsidise 90% of the shipping fees in order to retain customers. £12.99 is very high for some BB's, what was the total weight?
  8. @Josh SocomTactical how are you finding the ETU's? Is it fully micro-switched or a mix of optical? We're testing micro-switched ones at the moment - so far so good but early days yet. I've always been super weary as they are prone to failure after extensive use. Even the more expensive Japanese switches are only rated for 50,000.
  9. If I remember rightly the sector gear is short-stroked from the factory, something to keep in mind
  10. What's your current cylinder? What's your spring and FPS? Might not be any reason to change anything, just because you can doesn't mean you should. 🙂 Good job for actually thinking about the cylinder to inner barrel ratio though, generally for a 363mm you want a 3/4 or 4/5
  11. @Fatboy40 thanks for the feedback, so far I've been very happy with the performance and reliability of the XT 22TPA. I was getting around 5% failures with the ZCI and Rocket motors, very annoying. These XT motors with their top fan seem to keep the temperature down, so less damage to the wiring and commutator over time. The stock Chaoli used ferrite magnets I'm guessing. TPA is a term that isn't generally used by motor factories, and I guess doesn't mean too much to them without knowing the thickness of the wiring. RPM and Torque seem to be what they go by. What battery are you using with the DE?
  12. I had a pair of US Woodland camo Y-fronts in the 80's, much love
  13. Be interesting to see what you get, I've done several nozzle tests recently, with o-rings against those without, good seal nozzle at retracted and extended point vs one with no seal and the fps was always the same. A lot of other variables of course and no 2 setups are ever the same. Let us know how you get on.
  14. Upload a video if you can, with sound. If not try another battery, if you don't have one buy a 7.4v lipo.
