    Let's talk about AK47 AK74 AKM s....

    I've owned one of the G&G RK47s, and it wasn't much to shout and scream about. I ended up selling it. While I don't own any other AKs, I do have an LCT SR3M, which I believe has the same internals as their AKs. Assuming the quality is the same, then LCTs externals are fantastic for the price (I paid £210 for a full steel AEG that hasn't so much as creaked in two years), and internally, it's one of my most accurate AEGs I've got, and the only one I haven't had the desire to open up and tinker with. Basically, I've got an AKM on the shopping list, and it'll be an LCT while the time finally comes around.

    The "What I wasted money on" thread...

    S&T Sterling. I used it once, where one of the mid-caps stopped feeding immediately (they're about £25 each). Then the semi-auto stopped working (I bought it primarily as a CQB weapon). I opened up the gearbox, did everything I could to fix it, still couldn't find any logical reason it was only firing in full-auto. Struggled to put it back together (it's designed pretty badly), and one of the motor wires snapped off the inside of the gearbox (they were soldered. Badly.). At that point I gave up. Right now it's £300 of gun sitting as a pile of bits in it's original box, probably never to see the light of day again. If anyone wants a boneyard Sterling, let me know 😂

    Gun picture thread

    Trying to make my SSG look like it's not an SSG. I never liked the swirly-barrel nonsense anyway!

    whats all the hate for riot shields?

    It might have helped, but no-one ever has one when it's needed! 😂

    whats all the hate for riot shields?

    They can be great. Providing both teams have access to them. Bad memory - I was at a site where one player bought one along and was allowed to use it. In attacking, they needed to take an objective in a corridor-like passage between two buildings. Mr shield moves up, and there's literally nothing any of the defenders can do. He just sits there blocking the corridor off while his team go back and forth from the objective, unhindered by us (as we've no way of flanking that position due to brick walls). No point playing that round at all. It just wasn't created with a shield in mind, and the presence of one made it way too easy for the attackers. Good memory - RIFT Harmerwood. Other team makes a daring push on the objective with their shield in front, and their objective-carrier behind, escorted by half a dozen players. They push through the woodlands straight towards our defenders, the shield absorbing most of the shots. It looks great. Except no-one's spotted me on the flank with my M60 and....brrrrrrrp 😆 balanced gameplay and a plan let down only by someone in the right place at the right time!
  6. The LCT M60E1 to replace my A&K one. Or the LCT RPD. Or an RWA MG34. More realistically, the Ares L1A1 with wood kit 😋

    Duly googled and noted! 😆

    Hate it with a passion.

    Indeedy, just about! Very 90s. In fact not too dissimilar to mine. None of that fancy rails everywhere nonsense! A classic looking gun. Although even mine I only bought on a whim and still don't really like it that much 😉

    Hate it with a passion.

    M4s and anything that looks like an M4! Don't know why. Maybe it's because they're so commonplace. I'll happily take note of the finer differences between AK47s, 74s, 105s etc etc, but show me a HK416, Honeybadger, or any other M4 style gun and....nah. I just see an M4. Don't know why! Unless it's an old 'Nam style one of course. Or 80s. But a modern rail-a-holic one, I just seem to hate. Any while I'm at it, light grey AKs. Dark grey I love, but the cheaper light gray ones....nah 😆

    Member rants and One Tigris

    It'd make sense 😆 although a) all my batteries are mini-tamiya b) I don't have any problems with mini-tamiya and c) if I tried it I'd probably end up setting something on fire 😉

    These come with a large Tamiya connector by default, so I guess it's been converted to mini. Something I should really do with mine, given how many times I've arrived at a skirmish and forgotten the adapter... 😂

    Airsoft Argument

    I'd be with Player Two here. I'm not a fan of bang/surrender being forced at sites, but when it's done as an option, I think it's common sense to keep your gun on them til their hand is up. Otherwise you're just inviting someone to shoot you in the back.

    Novritsch SSG24

    I bought the SSG24. I'm not particularly a fan of Novritsch himself, I haven't really watched many of his videos (apart from when I was deciding whether to buy the gun or not), so it really wasn't a case of 'buying it for the name'. In fact, first thing I did when I opened the package was remove the Novritsch sticker from the case. I respect him for turning a hobby into a paid job, but I'm by no means a fan. The deciding factor for me was adding up a VSR10 and all the upgrades I wanted, and comparing the price to the SSG. They worked out about the same (of course, I wasn't factoring in import costs for the SSG at the time - doh!). Overall I'm happy with it. I use it every game, and hit targets as far as anyone else on the field, sometimes further. And I haven't had to do any tinkering. A lot of people like tinkering, it's part of the fun. I don't. I'm rubbish it at, and the best guns I own are the ones that I haven't opened up. As for comparing it to the SRS, I've never shot an SRS. My only comparison was at RIFT The Ridge, when someone with an SRS (who appeared to be quite experienced) told me I was wasting my time shooting at a group of distant enemies, and that I was well out of range. I politely explained that I'd already hit 6 of them. He didn't believe me, and wouldn't be convinced. Not exactly a water-tight comparison, but it is what it is. So in answer to your questions, my thoughts on it? Good. Value for money? Maybe not if you can get the parts cheaper and put them together well, but the sums I did said for a little bit extra it all comes ready to go. As someone who just wanted an out-of-box hi-end gun, it ticked all the boxes for me and I don't regret buying it.

    CYMA SVD Dragunov - Wood

    THIS ADVERT IS 'UNCOMPLETED' - THIS MEANS THE ADVERTISER HASN'T BUMPED THIS LISTING, BUT IT COULD STILL BE WORTH CONTACTING THEM.

    • For sale
    • Used

    Make: CYMA Gun/Model: SVD Accessories: 4x PSO scope, 2x 120rds Mid-cap mags,1x 200rds Hi-Cap mag, approx 6000 .32 BBs, 2000 .36 BBs, original barrel and motor Condition: Good FPS: 440 Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: 3x NO Price/Payment: £280 + P&P of £20 (Or I can deliver within reasonable distance of Stevenage, Herts). Hi all, For sale, my CYMA SVD with wood kit and a selection of upgrades. I haven't used it for a while, since getting my SSG24, and I can no longer justify having it as a wall hanger, so here it is! Barrel and motor have been upgraded, and I'll include the originals. It's had a new hop-rubber too. It also comes with all the .32 and .36 BBs I had bought for it and never got around to using. It hasn't been skirmished for a fair few months, but I have crono'd it today and it's doing an average of 440 FPS on .20g BBs with a snappy trigger pull. The only issues I'm aware of are the rear sight is missing (can be replaced with any AK one I believe, but with a scope you don't need it!), and also the illumination in the scope isn't working. It's probably in need of a battery change. I never got around it to because I didn't need the illumination. PLEASE NOTE: I've just realised the spare batteries in the picture are expired. I'll include them anyway in case someone wants to buy replacement ones using these as a reference. But please don't use these ones. Or do at your own risk. Upgrades done: Mad Bull Python Ver. II 6.03 tighbore barrel. Maple Leaf 60 degree bucking. SHS high torque motor. Any questions, please feel free to ask!

  15. Agreed, the marketing was terrible. Although apparently the only reason they did the advert in a CQB site was because filming it outside didn't show the 'potential' of the grenade. I'm guessing it's hard to film BBs showering over long range and still make it look impressive. So I can kind of see their logic there. Sort of. Doesn't excuse the glorifying pain thing though, and I'd be surprised if the product bounced back from this. Although...any news on how the US market is receiving it?
