  1. Update: The front site post barrel part has now just completely fallen off. Update: Fixed, zero one gun tech was super helpful. All good now. phew
  2. Went to check the cm16 ready for a game next week, and to my horror the barell is loose. The barell with the front site attached slides in and out as shown by the pictures: As well as this, there is a small silver coloured tube which seems to have come out of place due to this: I have no idea what to do, but really hope it is not broken. The more I move the rifle, the more the silver tube moves and scrapes around so I am trying not to do that. I have not shot it to see if it still works for fear of causing more damage. Does anyone have an idea of what to do? Thanks.
  3. 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..

  4. 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

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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.

  8. Just to check, it is this event this thread is on correct? https://www.airsoftfestival.com/ Friends and I are thinking of going before we all part for uni etc. From the looks of the replies ^^ it seems like its definitely worth the money, although I take it an extra battery and mags are needed? Thanks James
  9. 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...

  10. 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.
  11. 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 :)

  12. 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.
  13. 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! 

  14. 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🖖

  15. He could hold the key as to @Montys whereabouts...
  16. 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


  17. 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

  20.

  21. 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.
  22. https://eagle6.co.uk/shop/catalog/product/view/id/4381/s/nuprol-power-2600mah-7-4v-20c-lipo-nunchuck-type/ Something like this perhaps?
  23. 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.
