  1. In order to get this:1267467749c9fda323fa12beb59f33f49d37288d

    To look like this:


    Was I supposed to order another piece or am I just too stupid to figure out how to set it up like that?

      However, the 'piece' you may not have ordered, is the actual plate carrier

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Ah right, because that photo was on the product description page I thought the centre piece was something that folded up from behind the mags and I was just unable to find it.

      Thanks both.

      It’s not particularly well worded on the advert..

  2. On Taiwan Gun, as I'm completing the order I've just seen these two points: 

    For UK and Ireland orders shipping is at the customer’s own risk.
    PLS write your UKARA number into order commentary.

    The first one has me worried, the second confused. I am not ordering a RIF, but a rig and pouches. Is it going to get destroyed by customs?


    Completely new to ordering from TG and utterly confused.

      No problem, hope the rig works out well

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      So do I, it'll be an improvement on the one I used for ages made out of my school lanyard, belt, cardboard and a ton of duct tape.

    4. AK47frizzle


      Taiwangun is in poland btw :)))) So no customs

  3. Any estimated as to how long this would take to arrive? https://www.taiwangun.com/en/chest-rigs/buckle-up-chest-rig-v2-coyote-8fields


    It says on the website 8-22 days, was hoping its closer to the 8...

    1. Rogerborg


      Should be closer to (or less than) 8, assuming that they send it out quickly.  They have a huge turnover of stock and can get a little tardy when they're rammed.

    2. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Ah right thanks for the response.

  4. What mags, if any, have people had problems with when used with the G&G CM16 Raider (L)?

  5. https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/battleaxe-ar-15-450-round-polymer-magazine?pv=9671 Anyone had any experience with these? Would they fit a G&G Raider CM16 ok?

    Seem too cheap to be true..

      Unless your gun is very ‘picky’ about mags then any M16/M4/STANAG listed mag should fit and function fine in it .

      Advise I’d give if you need to ask ‘does this mag work in gun XYZ ?” Is come at it from the other direction with “what mags if any has anyone had problems with in gun XYZ ?”👍

    4. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Thanks, thats a much better way of doing it.

  6. What kind of ball park figure should I be selling a used (10+ skirmishes) but well looked after CM16 Raider L, with batteries, charger, mask etc? Batteries are 2600mAh, 7.4V Li - Po. Don't want to rip anyone off, or sell it for a steal as I need to get my finances in order before RT.

      I reckon around the £80-90 mark for a quick sale.

    3. StayOnTarget


      I think £120 with postage is fair 10 skirmishes is nothing I wouldn't class that as broken in even,you're basically selling a full starter kit minus mags🖖

      All the best with joining the Marines👍

    4. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Thanks all, and @Druid799, I knew those tasted a bit off...

  7. I trust these would fit in a G&G raider L?


    Trying to grab some in the sale.

    1. CommonAirsofter1


      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.

    2. Rogerborg


      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.

    3. fez_uk


      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 :)

  8. Anyone heading over to Bristol courthouse airsoft Thursday? Friends and I are going for a first time there. Any advice?

    1. Olm99


      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! 

  9. 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?

      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.

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      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)

    4. StayOnTarget


      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🖖

  10. 6 years after first trying, I finally own an airsoft rifle!!!!!!

      Six years ? that's some serious self control ! unless you've been in a coma since 2013 😀

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      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

    4. StayOnTarget


      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

      I got my plate carrier from 8 fields via patrol base, I was very impressed with the build quality for the price would defo recommend.

      I am looking at one of their gun cases based on build quality and price.

    3. Airsoft_Mr B

      Airsoft_Mr B

      Hunter, I have an 8Fields padded rifle case and can confirm it is a good buy. TaiwanGun is better tho, just a bit extra in shipping.

    4. Airsoft_Mr B

      Airsoft_Mr B

      Actually just further to the above if you mean case like hard case, then those are made by SRC, and I had one of them as well and can tell you are both good. Found the larger size case a bit inconvenient though and preferred the fabric bag which's why I bought a padded TG one, to try and get best of both worlds.

  11. Going to try out Bristol Airsoft (The courthouse) at some point in the next 2 weeks. Anyone going down there any time soon? Also anyone know what the hire gun is

  12. For Operation flashpoint dragon rising PC players there is now a multiplayer system set up thanks to Bluedrake!

  13. Looking for some war films that are like documentary films like Pech river boys, any suggestions?

    1. Sacarathe


      We were Soldiers has a journalist character. Does that count?

    2. Hibernator


      Restrepo, Korengal, Armadillo. TV - Bomb Patrol, Battle for Marjah, Our War, Inside Combat Rescue, Ross Kemp on Afghanistan

  14. Trying to get Medal of honour allied assualt to work on my PC running windows 10 but everytime I launch all it does is go to the permission to make changes to your computer, I click yes and then nothing. Any ideas on what to do?

      Did say ye ole but remind me of all them old dos game issues with base ram 640kb etc...

  15. Today was absolutely amazing, so much better than paintball. Didn't encounter any cheaters and everyone was happy to give us advice, let us play around with their rifles a bit and the sportsmanship on the field was great. Absolutely amazing day

    3. TeddyBhoy


      Now you start going as regularly as possible... Then spin it on your parents about all the money they'll save if you get a gun instead of renting... The CM16 will soon be yours James !

  16. Spartan airsoft tomorrow, first game and soooooo excited

    1. Josh95


      hope you enjoy it :)

    2. PT247


      have fun dude

    3. Sico


      Have fun mate.

  17. Well... I just found out as a suprise bbirthday present my dad ordered an airsoft pistol. It was the galaxy G21 as he found it written down on lots of bits of paper so I gues he must have thought this is the one. I know its not extremely high quality or a CM16, but its a start. After 3 years, I can finally start.

    1. Aengus


      At the time I thought having to wait 3 months to start was a long time :o

    2. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      it is a metal-ish plinky pistol, but a start I guess. Even so, please demonstrate common safety sense, don't be a dick as this is how accidents/incidents happen. Safety - clear gun, don't show off and don't fire indoors etc...

    3. proffrink


      That's a good Dad you've got right there. I'm sure this is just the beginning. We all started somewhere!

  18. Anyone going to Spartan on the 21st? Going with some friends, it'll be my first game. Any advice?

    1. Governor


      The main thing I see first-time players do is blind firing and talking when dead. Providing you stick to the rules, you'll have a bloody great time!

    2. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Ugh blind firing... I got shot in th throat at paintball because a guy blind fired over a barrel

  19. Starting to get into mountain biking with friends, anyone here know some good south west trails with rental bikes?

    2. Unrustle_Thine_Jimmies


      Bike park wales is the go to. One of my mates went there for a whole week,bit of a vet when it comes to MTB and loved every moment. Stick to the blue trails when starting out and you're grand. Good idea to get used to rentals.

    3. Unrustle_Thine_Jimmies


      And if you ever want your own bike save up as much as you can for a good hardtail with hydraulic disc brakes and a good air fork. MTB is great for the health,helped me get way more fit for milsims )

    4. Marchy


      Black mountain cycle centre is amazing well worth a visit. Also you have Surrey Hills. Swinley.

  20. Anyone know what DEDSEC's up to? He hasn't been on for almost a year

    1. Monty


      He's very active on Zero-in.

      I bought the Napoleonic wars dlc and the Zulu war mod for that is amazing


    3. Trojan


      so i only have to buy warband alone i.e. it is a seperate game

    4. proffrink


      Yes, Trojan.

  22. Windows 10 has really messed up my laptop, so many problems. I cant adjust sound, can't click the windows icon, cant click on anything in the toolbar. I have restarted several times but the problem wont go away, anyone else experiencing this?

      If you've done the free upgrade which writes over your existing OS that can sometimes cause an issue, also if you have an internet security suite already installed that can cause problems as well. I'd boot it into safe mode and remove any anti virus software you have then reboot and see if that's helps. Also check your HDD isn't running at 100% another known W10 issue with the upgrade

    3. ImTriggerHappy


      Maybe a PC forum is better than an airsoft forum for this sort of thing?

    4. Mos
