    A&K M60VN

    This advert is COMPLETED!

    • For sale
    • Used

    Make: A&KGun/Model: M60VNAccessories: 1x mag, plus a belt of dummy 7.62mm rounds.Condition: UsedFPS: 330-340Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: N/N/NPrice/Payment: 300Pictures:Hi all,Selling my A&K M60. This has been used by me numerous times over the two years I've owned it. It's working fine, and was chroned between 330-340 at the time of last skirmish (around summer time). I'm stopping airsoft for a while, so that's the reason for the sale.Only issue is that the left leg of the bipod has had a small chunk come away (see close-up picture). This means that when deployed, the leg can swing forwards. It's not something that's ever bothered me, as when you're using the bipod pressure is generally being applied forward rather than backwards. Unless you're not pulling the gun towards you, rather than pushing it into a position, it'll function as intended. Unfortunately these A&K bipods on their M60s have this issue quite often.Wired to mini-Tamiya, and it'll take a thin lipo slid down the side of the magazine for best results.Price includes postage and all fees, although I can meet a buyer within reasonable range of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, if collection is preferred, and will reduce the price accordingly.Any questions, please feel free to ask.Thanks,Greg

  2. £2000 and I'll chuck in a JBBG springer pistol? Special price, just for you sir!
  3. I believe originally these were being shipped from the factory in Taiwan, so had a hefty import charge and £55 shipping. Since then he's got them in Austria, so shipping to the UK is now £15 with no import tax. Much cheaper to get hold of them now (that said I'm also trying to sell one and am now reconsidering my price... 😂 )
  4. RIFT Airsoft have their 'The Village' site which isn't on there (admittedly it's officially a paintball site that owns it, but RIFT run fortnightly games there). It's the Apocalypse Paintball site, just north of Royston, SG8 5JS.
  5. The SR3-M is a damn good gun, but the battery issue a bit of a pain. You can buy the specific batteries for it, but even then they're fiddly to get into place and get handguard back on without trapping the wires. Other than that, its a heavy bugger, absolutely rock solid, that shoots like a laser out of the box. It's one of the few guns I've got that I wouldn't consider selling. And price wise it's not bad either.
  6. All the ones I've listed are in production, some are just a little pricey. I think except the Springfield, my local airsoft shop has offered all of those in the past year (and the Springfield from G&G is readily available online). Indeed, often it's only one manufacturer who offered each model, but one's better than none, right? 😉 S&T seem to be coming out with some new and interesting ones, not Allied but they've released two Japanese rifles and a machine gun this year. The King Arm's M1A1 and RWA Enfield are quite new as well. I think we'll be seeing more coming in the future, there's clearly a market for it. Only a matter of time before a Bren comes along.
  7. There are a fair few out there. On the Allied side we've got the Garand, Thompson, Grease gun, BAR, M1919, M1 Carbine (para and non), Sten, Springfield and the Lee Enfield, off the top of my head. Might actually be more than the German ones to be honest. And most of those are quite accessible (not looking at you Lee Enfield, you pricey, pricey bugger). I know what you mean about the Bren through. The ZB30 has been out a while, and S&T have released their Type 96. They're so close, but no cigar 😂 And another thing, early war Thompsons? Nowhere. I need a M1928 in my life 😁
  8. Wear whatever you like. I often run a early-WW2 style Thompson, wearing Cold-war era Swiss camoflague and with a modern M24 over my back for the long range stuff. Unless it's milsim, I don't really think there's a rulebook for this sort of thing 😉
  9. Fancied trying something new, my M4 got the brunt of it. Mad max style!
  10. Airsoft Innovations Cyclone grenade. It's never even gone off properly, the thing's rubbish. Absolute waste of £50. Secondly, one of the below tac-vests. See the clip keeping the pistol in place? Works lovely. See the two poppers underneath? They come undone the moment anything brushes against the vest, making the whole strap pointless (which is why my Makarov disappeared somewhere into a marshland on the first day I tried to use it) 😐
  11. Not a film as such, but I like the idea of the assault on Foy in Band of Brothers for something like this. Crossing an open field with sparse cover to attack entrenched positions, then fighting building to building. Then maybe having the objective to deliver a message across to teammates in another part of the village. Defending team has to look super confused while orchestral music plays and one teammate grins in an impressed manner.
  12. A Bren would be nice. The ZB26 just doesn't look quite right. Also a select-fire Sten MkV. Top one for me would be a proper M1928 style Thompson. King Arms used to make an EBB one but it's been discontinued. All the current ones are M1A1s with M1928 furniture 😕
  13. Be friendly and explain the situation. What happens next entirely depends on the officer, but I'd say most (if not all) are aware that airsoft is a thing, even if they can't themselves necessarily differentiate between a RIF and the real article. Having airsoft-y things, primarily the BBs, would make things a bit clearer. Worst case I'd say a firearms unit will be called to look over and maybe seize, but more likely just look over. So long as you've got a legitimate reason for them being in your car (and are transporting them out of view of the pubic), then you've committed no offenses, and should be all good.
  14. I used to love the DMR role: I had a G&G M14 with a scope that I took to every game, and it worked great in a role where I was always at the front, managing to hit those guys jist slightly out of reach. But it was lacking a certain something to take care of snipers and the such like. In other words, it was great for hitting people in one shot that I could have technically hit eventually with a 350 FPS gun, had I had the inclination to empty half a mag at them. Since then I bought a SSG24 and a CYMA Dragunov, and found the boltie was better in every way (even after upgrading the SVD). More range, more consistency, more fun. I still play the same role as with a DMR. I'm often at the front of my team, I just find the boltie does the job far more effectively than any DMR has. So in answer to your original question, I've played both roles, and now prefer sniper to DMR, and find that having a 'sniper rifle' doesn't mean for a second that you need to hide in a bush for the entirety of the match! If you want to shoot people from far away, and make them look around confused when you hit them, go for a bolt action. In my opinion, anyway!
  15. Regarding the SSG, they are generally pick-up-and-go guns, you can take it out of the box and get as accurate shots as any (although the hop-up does need a bit of time to wear in nicely). My logic in buying it was from a similar standpoint a yours; I didn't want to spend a similar amount on a VSR and upgrades, only to have it still not work nicely at the end of it. If you're willing to put £500-£600 on something that just works with zero-effort, it's one to consider. The only point I will add is that mine had a problem last month where the piston wouldn't release, and then the trigger seemed to go very loose. I had to take the whole thing apart and put it back together again, and it all seems fine now. That's after I've had it for about six months. As has been said, internally bolt-actions are far less complicated than AEGs, but whatever you buy you will most likely need to take it to bits at some point (unless you're wiling to shell out for a tech to do it!).
