Quick Questions & Simple Answers.

Recommended Posts

First off thanks all for the game last weekend was a blast. Now I managed to get my own kit in time for the game and was my first time using them. One was the tm p226 e2 pistol, now I know its a plastic slide so I didn't want to get to powerful gas so I used abby 144a gas. My question is what's the best gas to use for said pistol.

Is it semi only?  that's about what I would use during a day at the Mall.  But as Jedi said, safer to bring a bottle.

Thanks G, if you can get away with 700 for the day I think I'll be fine. Will bring some extra cash if I need more - I heard the mall was closing; Shame I would have loved to go to an environment like that once I got my ukara. Sandpit in Bradford seems like my next choice when the weather is nicer again

Another quickie;

 

What is the purpose of a plate carrier in airsoft? Are they for the weenies who don't like being shot?

 

For some people yes, for others it's being tacticool, others (like myself) its for the flexibility of loadout just by modifying the pouches etc.

Not to sound rude, just an honest question but why not use a molle, webbing or some other belt?

 

Plate carriers are for ballistic plates, right?

IRL yep, I just find the placement of pouches I often use is better on a PC, and it also allows me to strap on a water carrier on the rear for hot long days. It's horses for courses a lot of the time, if I need light and mobile I'll just use a belt setup, but if I'm carrying half a dozen mid caps, some pistol mags, loader, BBs, gas etc. then the PC offers me more options.

 

Take any padding out it's just a vest really.

Hi I'm after a little help with a s/h we sig f229 I've just picked up. It's a bit battle worn and has no front sight.

 

Can anyone let me know how best to fit a replacement front sight? Got one on the way, but the slot on the slide has a small hole. I'm assuming the sight just slides into the groove. Is this correct? If not, does it need to be glued on?

 

I don't have the replacement yet, so I can't work out if it will slide in or will need to be glued on.

 

Thanks is advance for any help. :)

 

New sight has arrived, can anyone advise on how to fix it on?

Did the sight come with a screw? You said before there was a hole in the slot on the slide, does the sight have a matching hole? If there are matching holes, and you have a screw, the screw in from inside the slide. If holes and no screw, then contact supplier of sight as should have been supplied.

Thank you for the response. I don't think it came with a screw and there's no hole under the slide to screw through to the sight. I will take another look tonight, but thank you for helping :)

My bad, I answered without hunting a manual down, it should just push in if no screw, it should be firm and will need a little force, it shouldn't come out without force either. You can add a dab of a good adhesive to help it stay, but shouldn't be needed.

By way of an update, I've had a proper look with a pal who knows his stuff. The new front sight has a hole all the way through from the  top. So I'm told I can find a very small grub screw to screw it down once it's slipped into the slot. Once in it stays on, but can move laterally, so the screw keeps it in place.

 

Alternatively, a blob of glue should do. 

 

Does anyone have any tiny grub screws or a source for getting one? 

 

Not sure what size, but looks a little like the type that comes with a flash hider.

 

Thanks in advance.

Surprised it didn't come with a screw, never had a sight come without all required components... Maybe contact where you purchased from?

Thanks again for the advice. Called them, but they don't supply the screws. Ordered a set from amazon, hopefully won't be smaller than an M3 lol :)

Forgive my ignorance but the multitude of options is confusing. Are there any grenades, specifically ones which can be fired from a pistol grenade launcher that will actually spray bbs from the grenade on impact rather than the many launchers I have seen that just work like an oversized shotgun?

 

I'm looking for a side arm that I can use to attack people behind cover.

some of the TAG rounds will do that, but not many sites allow TAG rounds unfortunately!

Thanks. 

 

I have another; I just got my first airsoft rifle but it's Chinese and didn't come with a manual. It's an m4 variant.

 

There is a button just behind the hop up/ spent she'll ejection port and I have no idea what it does...anybody know?

Hi

 

I'm guessing from your description it is the forward assist.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forward_assist

 

On some guns it decompresses the spring  on other airsoft guns it doesn't do anything, it's for show, but without knowing your specific model can't say for sure.

 

Cheers

Yes it's definitely the forward assist, now I know what it's called I can confirm via Google.

 

I have a JG dragon star / thunder maul / IkaZuchi

 

Cheers
