  1. I've always wondered does this not affect a persons ability to feel hits? I've had a few instances of shooting people in something similar and them not feeling it, and I doubt the sound would be enough usually either.
  2. I trust these would fit in a G&G raider L?

    Trying to grab some in the sale.

      I would assume so, the raiders I have seen all seem to have this style of magazine in them, even the rentals at my local field.

      Should be good, although Workmate Eddie bought a variety of mags to see which one(s) worked best with his Raider, and some of them needed a kiss with a file to get them seating properly, either along the spine or inside the release catch window.

      The Raiders can be picky (well the CM16 are) with what mags work. I went with the lonex flash mags after researching on here and not had any feeding problems with them. Worth a quick search on the forum :)

  3. I've found that at my nearest site (cqb courthouse) this is how my friends and I tend to play. Agree with pretty much everything said, but I don't think I've ever had problems with me or others not taking hits. Weirdly, sometimes I find myself calling hit in some situations even though I haven't been shot but because I thought they must have got me by now. Personally, I think 2 shots at a time is reasonable as stated above, sometimes people won't 'register' the first be it adrenaline/plate carriers etc, and sometimes I'll see people wearing so much I don't think they would actually notice if they got hit there other than by sound. As stated previously, with the 'trade offs' its a lot easier to just both take it, go back to respawn and carry on instead of stand and argue.
  4. Anyone heading over to Bristol courthouse airsoft Thursday? Friends and I are going for a first time there. Any advice?

      Take a tracer and/or a torch! Make sure you have good eye pro and face mask, when i went they went for the heads mainly. It is agreat site! 

  5. Finally started shooting the CM16 just to test it today but I've a few problems:

    Out of the box, it shoots really low and left. I adjusted the rear sights a bit and tried messing around with the hopup (which goes the opposite way to the instructions supplied it seems) but its still pretty inaccurate at a little less than 10m. Any advice?

    Also I probably put around 100ish rounds through it, should I put the battery on charge again before tomorrow?

    Thanks.

      not necessarily, odds are it would likely have been blasted out the barrel in bits.

       

      i wouldn't advise running those bb's any more if they can't take the pressure of a mag spring then god knows what they're doing when they hit the target.

      I believe it was SPARTAN BIO bb's I have left over from a site I went to where you have to use only their bbs. I've used all of them up now and I probably only be back there once or twice more before I sell my kit on. Right now I'm using NUPROL .20s from Bristol Airsoft (they only sold the tracer varient) however once these are used up I will look at getting some ASG Blasters or Devils (I can't remember the full name) but probably the latter due to a recent thread about exploding on mesh. 

       

      Thanks for the reassuring words, I thought my airsoft days were over there and then, however it has made me realise that I should probabl invest in a spare something or other as right now I only have 1 of each thing. (1 rifle, 1 mag 1 battery etc)

      Yep welcome to airsoft where one of everything is not enough and neither is tow or three for that matter(just kidding) defo get some more mags and a back up battery though,if your watching the pennies and haven't got any camo look at helikon trousers very hard wearing pretty cheap and on the leg pockets the insides have elastic loops in them that you can use as mag pouches(rifle not pistol)👍 oh have a look on BZtactical I get mys BBs from there been using Tippman .25 .28 .30 good price and zero issues🖖

  6. He could hold the key as to @Montys whereabouts...

      It wasn't exactly my choice, I had to wait to be allowed one. Had I been allowed immediately, I would be heavily in debt by now.

      Just hoping it arrives by Sunday

      Well mate I hope it comes Sunday too you deserve it hope it something nice let us know what you got

      All the best to you

  8. My friend bought seconds before this arrived but I think he'll be fine with the battery. With regards to the fit, I guess we'll find out and I'll pray. Yeah sorry about that we're trying to find the cheapest on everything. I have to wait to convince my dad tomorrow but thanks for the help none the less. I think everything is about the same anyway just different sites. - Only change was https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07GVBFLP3/ref=sspa_dk_hqp_detail_aax_0?psc=1

  11. About to go ahead and buy the battery, charger, and gun any final words of advice? https://www.componentshop.co.uk/7-4v-1450mah-25c-continuous-discharge-cranestock-lipo-battery.html-Two of those Or https://www.componentshop.co.uk/7-4v-2600mah-25c-continuous-discharge-cranestock-lipo-battery.html - One of those https://www.componentshop.co.uk/1000ma-1500ma-li-po-li-fe-charger-for-2s-3s-lipo-life-battery-packs-complete-with-psu.html -Charger https://www.amazon.co.uk/OneTigris-Tactical-Protective-Paintball-Adjustable-x/dp/B01KDWEB3G?th=1 -Lower mask
  12. Struggling to find somewhere with Nunchuck batteries in stock, such as this one http://www.actionhobbies.co.uk/2600-mAh-7-4v-25c-Nunchuck-LiPo-Battery-Pack_A10WK6.aspx#.XC5Ka1z7S00. This thread seems to have a lot of advice with battery types and seems like cranestock batteries work fine? So does that mean I'm ok to go without nunchuck and just get the cranestock ones? Perhaps get two of these: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/7-4v-1450mah-25c-continuous-discharge-cranestock-lipo-battery.html As the thread creator did for that link. I'll probably get the same charger (one recommended by frizzle etc) however, as the ones recommended through that thread are out of stock. It seems that I need a mini-tamiya connection thing for the batteries to work with the raider L.
  13. https://eagle6.co.uk/shop/catalog/product/view/id/4381/s/nuprol-power-2600mah-7-4v-20c-lipo-nunchuck-type/ Something like this perhaps?
  14. So battery wise I found this: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/7-4v-2600mah-25c-continuous-discharge-cranestock-lipo-battery.html - about 10 pounds more but it has more charge on it and would definitely last all day by the sounds of things. If not, I'll go for the one frizzle posted https://www.componentshop.co.uk/7-4v-1300mah-25c-continuous-discharge-cranestock-lipo-battery.html Does anyone know if these definitely fit in the crane stock of the raider L? As said above, spare mags and rig I wont be getting in order to save money. I'll just carry a bottle of spare bbs as someone on here used to and that worked pretty well with just the one 450 round mag. With regards to the 'deans' connectors I need to do more research on that, after exam season. Do I need these in order to use a LiPo battery? I didn't realise I could actually use a LiPo on the CM16 as I thought it only took NiMh. On the link for the battery, there are options for Deans, mini deans and a tamiya? Charger wise, the plan of one charger between us sounds good: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/imax-b6-50w-5a-charger-discharger-1-6-cells-genuine.html?___store=en_us 2-tone. Unrelated to the quote, but I'll only be using it for about a year before enlisting so hence the cost and upgrades I'm keeping to a minimum as I don't want to overspend without it seeing the use to make it cost effective.
