First off sorry for the amount of threads lately must be driving you all crazy :)

This is what I have in mind

Gun:

Not quite decided these are my options

1.G&g raider gc16 gen 2( favoured option) http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/product_info.php?cPath=268_318_403&products_id=8788

2.t418 gen 2 (bit over budget but I will stretch) http://www.proairsoftsupplies.co.uk/acatalog/-GEN2--T4-18-Light-T4_18_L_GEN2.html

3.cm16 raider l ( under budget ) http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/product_info.php?cPath=268_318_403_494&products_id=5774

What are the differences. BEtween option 1 & 2 because I don't mind spending more as I carn't see myself getting a new gun anytime soon after this

Anyone been to any of these and are their any better ones in/near Manchester

Sorry for the long post

Don't think there is much difference between the first and second gun you've linked. First one is your typical M4 that everyone and their mothers have and the second one is a HK M416 which is a little bit more unique and seen less than your standard M4. I personally would go for the M416 as it just looks delightful.

 

However you will hear people saying get the CM16 as it's a great starter weapon and you can upgrade it etc but it's down to you.

just a heads up: I recommend this for boots: http://www.cadetdirect.com/bulling-polish-cadet-socks/cadet-boots-shoes/cadet-patrol-boots

very comfortable, I use them myself.

with the battery I use that one its a beast, and if you want to save postage look up the turnigy accucel 6, I believe it is a clone but it is just as good on component shop btw I use it very good imo.

Which of my options would you get?

I'd say go for the 416. The Boogie Regulators are awesome, they won't steam up if you keep moving. I'm going to get some myself.

I don't know if they will fit with the metal mesh half face mask though.

Shemaghs will mean your eye pro is more likely to steam up so I would say go for the scrim net scarf, I think if you wrap it around your face enough it should be enough protection.

 

If you look on the websites they should tell you their rules on full face masks and ages. I know F&O allow U18s because I went to their Heywood site before it closed down :(

If you use eye pro and some lower face protection like the mesh half face mask it probably will count as full face. I guess it means you can't just use a shemagh or something (must have some hard protection like mesh or a neoprene / cordura face mask thingy)

 

Nice to see another Yorkshire airsofter :) Manchester woodland will probably be my local site once I start airsofting again. There's also Alpha One Airsoft - near Dewsbury way IIRC.

So you recommend stretch my budget a bit and getting hk m416 ?

I personally would. Just nicer to see something other than your standard M4 you know? Plus it has plenty of rail space and the flexibility to make a DMR loadout with it?

Nice choice on the Boogie Regulators, I have a pair myself and only had them steam up once - even then that was because someone had just chucked water at me.

Just gonna roll out and say there's no such thing as a M416, it's a HK416. M416 was invented by Dice for their Battlefield games because they couldn't get licensing from H&K to call it a HK416.

 

Please stop.

 

I didn't reliese I was just told m416 sorry :)

I read the waiver insurance for f&o and it says you must have a one piece full face protection( for u16). Could I come to a agreement with them?

Highly doubt it. If you're under 18 you're wearing full face, accept it.

Worth asking them. Last time I was at the towers under 18s could use goggles and a half mask as protection, but other sites may not be so lenient.

Ok thanks it's just that there seem to be no quality one piece protection and glasses and and mesh half face just looks cooler!

What do the other u18 users of this forum wear

Would be good to get personal recommendations

Is mesh a good option? I would put shooting glasses underneath

I'm under 18 and personally I have ESS ICE glasses with a mesh lower mask. At my site this is fine but you may need to check with yours. Also at my site they allow under 18s to wear just glasses or goggles if their parent gives consent to the marshals on the day.
