For extended Glock and Hi Capa mags, which mag pouches are the most useful: MP5 or UMP pouches?

 

Or is there a better alternative?

 

I thank you.

MP5 / Glock are “roughly” the same size. - hicapa is different but not far off.

Perhaps look for elasticated versions?

that's a good shout on getting elasticated mag pouches. viper do some extended pistol mag pouches in the hsgi style. alternatively TMC make some SMG pouches which you can get from somewhere like weapon762.

 

if you have the budget for real steel then blue force gear ten speed mp7 pouches are worth looking at along with hsgi if you prefer that style.

Back again.😃

 

How do the TM High Cycle rifles manage to achieve a high rate of fire on 8.4 nimhs?

 

I know the velocity is low, but I was just wondering if they have the solid build quality of other TM guns.

Factory short stroking, from what I've seen on my mate's box, but I may be wrong.

Probably a high speed motor or a faster ratio gears (14:1 or 13:1) as well.

It's TM after all, their guns are spot on.

I was a little disappointed with the build quality of the Ten Speed kit, mine fell apart! 😞

Quick question.

Can a magazine release catch be the cause of misfeeding/not feeding at all/air leaks?

I have 2 Ares Amoeba M4s, same exact lower receivers, used to feed flawlessly every mag i could throw at them.

Not long ago i lost my whole mag release assembly on one and purchased an aftermarket ambidextrous mag release thingy.

Since then, said gun has had troubles feeding from midcaps, while the other still feeds fine.

I purchased one of those ambidextrous mag releases for our Firehawk and it did the exact same thing. I replaced the original stock part and it’s back to working perfectly.

Yes. M4s are very prone to misfeed due to even a slight change in the mag's position.

My new Well MB09 came with this random spring. Nothing in the poor instructions as to what it is supposed to do. RIF works fine without it. Any ideas?

What is the purpose of the flip up trigger guard on the sig 552? About 3.15mins in the video if that helps. (sorry can't figure out how to type in red)

It is for when you are wearing heavy gloves. You can flip it to one side so you have more room.

Smart. It would just be drilled into you to flip back I suppose

Looks like the spring from inside a nozzle

 

Its been confirmed on Facebook as a spare mag release spring. It seems that Well always provide a spare for some reason! Odd but can't knock it!

What do people mean when they refer to "normal" or "regular" green gas.

 

I know they don't include Nuprol 2.0 in that category since it is supposed to have a somewhat higher pressure than most green gas.

 

There doesn't seem to be a lot of choice in green gas in the UK. Most places sell only Nuprol, Abbey and ASG Ultrair,  though you will occasionally see Guarder, Airsoft Surgeon or Puff Dino. I have no idea where the Puff Dino fits into the spectrum.

 

I'm guessing something like Abbey Predator Ultra might be regarded as normal green gas.

Nuprol 1.0 and Abbey 144a (confusingly with a green label) is duster gas.

 

ASG Ultraair is somewhere between duster and green so I use it in my TM pistols when its below 12 degrees.

 

Abbey Red label, Nuprol 2.0 is green gas.

Is there much point in running bbs heavier than 2.0 at cqb sites where the layout restricts range to about 20 yards maximum?

As long as they are good quality. I use 0.25’s in my pistol and 0.36’s in my rifle but pinpoint accuracy not body sized targets is important to me

Thanks. I was considering  getting some .25 tracers but 20s would probably suffice.
