  1. 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.

      I agree with Hamster turn your hop to zero to avoid any damage while cleaning use a dry cloth first and see what comes out.I found the flip up sights on my MK18 pretty crap to be honest but works fine with the fixed Krytac sights? 

      Keep us posted on what goes on and I hope it sorts itself out

      Have an exam tomorrow so haven't had time to test and clean, however I the rifle seemed to perform fine yesterday (and holy crap CQB is amazing) but I don't think accuracy was much of a problem seeing as most people were only metres away.

       

      If anyone gets the chance go to Spartans CQB site before its demolished it was the best game I've ever played.

      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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Fitness / Phys. & Supplements ?

    Stopped airsoft a while ago, but using this fitness plan to train to join the Royal Marines (god there's so much fucking running), has been tweaked a little by members of RM to suit the selection process but you could find some of it useful: Remember supplements also have a lot of bad parts about them and really you only need a good diet. P&B refer to two different cicruits, with one using weights and sprinting etc and one purely sit ups, push ups and pull ups. Day Morning #1 Morning #2 Afternoon #1 Monday Arms Weights Running tempo 30 min Circuit P Tuesday Core Weights Swimming 30 min Circuit B Wednesday Running - Bleep test Or Intervals Running - Bleep test Thursday Leg Weights Rest Circuit P Friday Arms Weights Swimming 30 min Circuit B Saturday Running 8-10 Miles Or 60 mins Chest Weights Sunday Rest Rest Rest

    Cancer Research Fundraiser

    Morning all, A few friends and I are doing a 40-mile hike in order to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK. Our target is £600, but this is only a small target, and by no means a limit. We would like to raise much more than that, and thus I am appealing to you all for your help in raising as much as possible. The hike itself will take place 23rd August - 25th August, with two of us completing the entire hike with checkpoints for others who would like to join for sections but are unable to complete the entire 40 miles. It would mean a lot to all of us, and Cancer Research if you could donate even a tiny amount, as it will all help to the end goal of preserving every life, and finally beating cancer for good. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/joe-james2018 Thanks, James

    Battlefield V is Now!

    Also if you haven't already, read up about the SOE, plenty of female operatives. The resistance also had many female combatants. The idea that women only helped during World War 2 at home, is outworn and really not 'fact'. Check out some forgotten voices book on the war also, plenty of accounts in there detailing this subject. Most women who entered service (three quarters) were volunteers, and based on the actions of many female SOE, resistance and anti aircraft battery operators I'm sure that, had women been allowed, they would've made an even greater impact.

      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.

      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.

      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.
