    CQB Help

    I suppose it stems from preferring to play quite sneaky. Firehawks do LOOK nice though...

    +1 for the jarring sound of one going off near me!! Never understood why they are so loud, or why anyone would want a sound amplifier either.

    The 'What have you just bought' Thread

    @L3wisD How pissed off would Luke from The Mall be if we all rocked up shooting guns with blaster sounds

    Am I the only person who is slightly irked by your 'mysterious airsoft druid' type personality you project? Im not out to wind up or insult anyone, but you do post rather vague statements like this that edge towards the fact you can see the future, have been to the future or are some sort of secret airsoft insider who knows all but wont actually tell anything... No totally get your points and glad to have a conversation online with someone that doesnt see eye to eye without them swearing, calling me a prick or my mum a troll, although both of those tend to be true In answer to your questions, I simply dont know.. I was typing without really thinking and it just opened up out of me haha. I get your point about it killing the sport. Maybe I would prefer a more controlled type of scenario like a realsim where weapons have to conform to certain standards? That being said playing with/against people with bonkers guns can sometimes be fun. and I have been outplayed by plenty of people with shite guns or just running a pistol etc and yeah cheaters will cheat. Again my typing was quicker than my brain as usual.

    I think theres too much choice... There are literally hundreds of guns across all manufacturers and price points. And in some cases the quality varies widely. Its pretty much the same in any industry though to be fair and mostly avoidable but thats more of a bash on capitalism rather then airsoft Not saying they should all be made the same, a choice between steel and plastic should still be there, but does there really need to be 200 different variants of a £180 M4 when ultimately they all do the same thing? **And in all honesty I went a little off topic, what I posted is not what I am looking for in Airsoft, more of an ideal situation...** I play for fun, as long as I have a good day and enjoy myself Its all good. I suppose the realism of the guns and the adrenaline rush when playing is what appeals to me. As long as I have guns they look good and sites with games that engage me I will keep playing.

    @StayOnTarget @Immortal Was mainly thinking out loud in the above post but my bit about ROF and FPS being a little more universal was from a site point of view. Of course there will be people who want to mod their stuff to be faster, more powerful, more colourful etc and that’s great. There’s loads of industries build off this. But more from a Sunday skirmish point of view if sites had a more universal approach to site limits and manufacturers also took a more similar approach it would stop a lot of issues. Less overkill, fewer hot guns, no more getting rinsed and out played by teams with super HPA rigs and a more fairer day for all. do we need arp9s with drum mags being basically the same as a support weapon? Or a MK23 with a scope and body kit as good as a sniper rifle? one of the reasons (not all but quite a few) people get into airsift is the realism of the kit. So why should a pistol be as effective as a sniper or a smg a cheaper version of a support gun? Im not saying this SHOULD be the standard, just putting it out there for discussion. I personally can see how it may benefit. Yeah choice is great, and there should be room for that too.

    Gun picture thread

    Same thing I tell every one, sell it and get an EVO Just kidding, only do what you NEED to do to it. On my first RIF I stuck so much pointless crap on it it became silly!! Slowly took it all off and even played a few games with nothing on it at all, including iron sights and the stock, I taped the battery to the stock tube for a day Got as many kills as I normally would and had as much fun as before. Just have a sight, grip and tracer (play indoors a lot) on guns now. If you feel you want a torch, tracer or need a new this that or the other then try it. But only you are using it and know what needs to be done, if anything. £400 of gun bling will not make you a better player or make you enjoy your day any more than leaving it as it is, unless you play in a dark CQB environment, in which case by a bloody torch

    It wont happen but in an ideal world there would be more consistency in Airsoft in the UK. By that I mean, guns with similar FPS and ROF, they all basically do the same anyway so why can they not be more universal. Obviously I am not saying a pistol and a sniper rifle be the same, but among classes of weapons there could be less variance which would help massively to reduce issues, cheats and ultimately make the game safer. Same goes for site rules and regulations. A standardised rule system including FPS and safety brief, a lot of unique sites will need their own brief but do sensible, reasonable adults need to be told EVERY week at the same site by the same person about the same rules? no, so maybe a standardised way of delivering briefs would help. If every site finally realised the bang rule is shit the better too! Also the same MED and grenade radius would be useful across all sites. I know a lot of sites use similar rules, but some are very different and if you play across multiple sites like I do its actually annoying that some sites have three great rules but then had some silly complicated medic rule or allow bang kills etc. As as mentioned even consistency in gun materials and costs would be nice.
  11. Anyones local site running special xmas / new years games? Particularly in the south east... I will be bored with a few weeks off and need to run off all the mince pies I will be eating!!

      Cheers guys, If Id had know about Gunman weekender I would have gone for the sat/sun. Love me a bit of winter camping. But is seems Worthing may be an option, otherwise will keep an eye out for games on the 29/30th or 5/6th

       

      Portsmouth is too far for my little car to manage :D

      Debating going to the worthing one myself weather depending. Hit me up if you're going, been trying to get this m4 up and running for weeks now but no matter what I do i'm getting the annoying air nozzle problem where it gets stuck halfway after shooting -.-

       

      Might just break out the UMP for a game :P

  12. A great response by the site and hopefully they have a think of what was said and things change. As mentioned a review is generally in the eye of the beholder, I have come back from games and had an amazing day to see loads of people moaning how crap the day was, same as having a crappy day seeing loads of cheating and getting pissed off to others saying it was their best game ever! But, some of the things mentioned by the reviewer and the site are a little concerning, regulars or not all guns should be chronoed. As annoying as it is going week in week out to the same site with the same guns with last weeks stickers on someone could have done some tweeking and end up with a stupidly hot gun. The two briefs is a good idea if carried out correctly.
  13. Im going to gloss over the regulars being called in to defend the honor of the site as they were clearly asked to come over and post and fair enough they may honestly feel upset by the review but in all fairness its hardly a scathing review telling us all to stay away. The bad points are not generally going to stop people from attending, other than the safe zone and parking issue which if there is space on site, and most sites have spare spaces they can convert or put to parking etc. The comment about food being free so don't moan is childish, as someone who doesn't eat meat and mostly avoids dairy site food is generally atrocious and reviews like this are super helpful as I will know to bring my own food. Toilets are generally an issue on woodland sites which is always annoying and shops on site in my opinion only need to sell, water, snacks and bb's grenades etc. I don't really go to a site to expect to buy anything more than some extra bb's or a eye pro if I forgot mine for example. I think the good points and bad points equal out to a balanced review which is what Asmodai tends to produce. the hands of marshaling comment an actually be taken as a good or a bad, personally if you do not need a marshal or have a day where one is not needed then that is a positive so not sure why the regulars are pointing that out to be a false statement. Its a little far for me and for the money I can play nearer at a site I know and like so will not be going out of my way to attend, so while not great for the site, this review is super helpful for me!!

    Normal sized tracer units vs minis

    I know the Acetech ones are rechargable with a mini usb cable. Imagine thats the same for the others.

    Normal sized tracer units vs minis

    Buy both, Evos are amazing.. Figure I will get my hands on a ARP in the new year due to all the hype and see what all the fuss is about. The acetech ones last bloody ages im led to believe. And I think they are the main people doing the shorter pistol tracers, although I may be wrong. Very good point about them being new and taking their time to get to market. Its only the past year I have seen more and more pistol tracers.

    Normal sized tracer units vs minis

    Oh they LOOK great, dont get me wrong.. But not hugely practical from a CQB point of view in my opinion. My TM MP7 is a diddy little thing, and thats the main attraction to me, sticking a foot long suppressor on it negates its main selling point!.. Its as long as a short M4 with that thing on it!!

    Please help me choose a gun

    There you go.. buy that one.. As mentioned it doesnt really matter. They both do the same job are effectively the same thing.

    Normal sized tracer units vs minis

    Personally I like the look of rifles with a silencer, always have. So I run a mock one when outdoors as I prefer the look and airsoft to me is about realistic looking guns and a tracer in cqb. Again, the longer tracers oer the shorter are about aesthetics, on a pistol a small one looks fine, longer ones for longer guns. Its about that 'look'. Saying that I dont get MP7s with those long ass silencers on.. I know in the real world that is the practical way, but when playing I want my MP7 to be as short as possible. like this:

    Please help me choose a gun

    Have a Krytac, cannot fault it at all... But hear good things about the G&G too In all honesty, I dont think you can go wrong with either. Go with what you either: 1) Prefer the look off 2) Prefer the feel off (trying out each is recommended for the 'feel' the weight and try shouldering it looking down sights etc) 3) What you can afford. Bare in mind you will want extra mags, battery charger and pouches etc... A £50 saving on the rifle could mean the difference between other gear. Remember its airsoft, most AEGs of a similar price are comparable anyway. And I have have some of the best days running around with a shitty almost broken Combat Raider with no sights, stock or any externals, with a high cap racking up kills on dudes in full tactical geardo outfits with guns which cost more than all the kit I had on the day.

    precautions you take buying used

    Beat me to it.. In all honesty I wont buy a RIF from someone unless I know of them, a regular poster on here or a regular at the sites I play. Cheaper gear and parts are less of a gamble. The other thing which has not been mentioned and with some of the ridiculous prices in the classifieds on here is to CHECK RETAIL price. Plenty of sellers trying to sell a used gun for £50/£20 less than they paid for it, or chuck a load of random extras in and you end up paying for a load of crap you dont want/need.. In some cases fair enough it might be a bargain, but I for one would rather pay the full price, get a gun I can completely trust and have warranty. On another note the Paypal F&F nonsense pisses me off. If your selling an item it should be sold as a goods and services transaction and that is what it is. So you either A) Know your going to lose a % and shrug it off as a transaction fee or wear n tear fee or B) adjust your price accordingly. I would much rather pay £220 for something and the guy state please use G&S than be asked to trust a cretin asking £200 that I have never met insisting on F&F and then demanding I work out the fees and pay him extra. Just stick a tenner/score on the total!!
  21. Yes you should.. Imagine if doris across the road twitches her curtains and sees you loading up just as you drop it?. Next thing you know your on the floor surrounded by cops accused of being a terrorist. Even from the house to the car RIFs should be covered, either in their factory box or a rifle bag. Saying that I was on my way to an airsoft shop on a busy high road and my rifle bag zip decided to malfunction and my CM16 spilled out onto the pavement outside the shop, it was in a few pieces but still managed to freak out a woman who saw it..

    Advice

    My advice is DO NOT goto Bunker 51. Its NOTHING like The Mall at all. its practically the size of C&A (the largest room with the escalators). split down the diagonal with 2 choke points, thats about it.. If you enjoyed Mall and still want to go then bare in mind its the same price for about 10% of the space and a third of the time. If I recall you get a few hours at Bunker for the same cost as a day at Mall.
  23. You mean.... I wasted my money??
