The 'What have you just bought' Thread

Recommended Posts

FairPlay, I'm teenage (16 ) and I bring my younger brother and my dad, both of which I Introduced to airsoft, and they just claim all of the bits I end up selling. And tbh my dad's the most immature of the lot of us.

Pmsl :) I'm probably the bigger kid than my sons are :)

 

My 3 year old daughters getting in on it now, she loves helping me with little jobs on my weapons and under extreme supervision & me holding everything, she loves pulling the trigger and make it go "bang" as she puts it :)

I know the feeling, I also have a 9 year old brother who loves to shoot the guns and play with my really old two tones. Although he can be helpfull, for example he is currently helping me to do the sewing on my ghillie as I'm atrocious at it

They've got to be of some use other than for testing things & blaming things for :)

Where are condor selling gear in MTP? I've not seen any large after-market gear manufacturer producing stuff in genuine MTP cordura so far.

It's just Crye MC knockoff. The actual gear isn't bad quality.

 

edit: here's a comparison between my Condor MC rig and an issue MTP smock

I wish retailers would stop doing that, the amount of kit they're labelling as MTP which isn't boggles the mind. Everything from apparel to rigs and pouches, it's incredibly mis-leading to a lot of consumers out there; especially when MC, MTP and all the MC-clones look so identical to the untrained eye.

So many people have come up to me and asked me to have a look at some of their 'MTP' gear when it's just an MC clone. I think it's unfair for retailers to incorrectly label MC clone camos as MTP.

Not a debate at all, just pointing out some bad retail practices that exist with gear stores. Nothing to apologise for either, you didn't do anything wrong.

Hahaha sp00n, my buddy spent a few quid in a 2p machine to win a box of them for my daughter, only to eventually win and realise she was 10 months old....lol

 

Chris, ta bud, didn't realise the difference between mtp and MC, can tell now that my rig is purely mc only

AirsoftPro hop lever for Well VSR series @ £17 from ASPUK

 

Hopefully this curbs the annoying habit my rifle has recently developed of curving shots to right at the end of each shot. -.-'

In a semi-delerious state I accidentally bought a Russian 'Mabuta' uniform, which is pretty rare these days even for a good reproduction of the original KGB Special Units' sand coloured battle dress. Got it in size 54-5, if anyone is interested in getting something similar, which should fit me perfectly (42" chest, 37" waist, 5'10" tall with long arms) - paid US$103.00 posted from a Russian fleabayer...

 

Plus I also bought an Asura Dynamics B10 lower handguard RIS for AK's for exactly US$100.00 posted, from a HK fleabayer...

...This 'Mabuta' is very similar to those worn by the KGB 'Zenit' Group who were responsible for the raid codenamed "333 Storm",

which is what began the Soviet-Afghan war, as it included storming the presidential palace.

The only difference is that it lacks the front facing thigh pockets on the trousers,

going instead for the traditional BDU-type pocket placement.

Note however that it does include the 'secret pocket' for a fighting knife in a sheath.

...this is destined for my tricked-out tacticool RPK, which is TDB BTW!

Orga Magnus 6.23mm by 260mm barrel for my G5

No-Brand supressor cover the longer barrel

Prommy purple bucking

Maple leaf Omega nub

 

The orga barrel has a neat trick that you can convert the gun to a flat hop by just assembling the bucking differently around the barrel. i am planning to try this in my G5 and see if the flat hop is any better than my previous setup of Madbull blue bucking with a H nub in there.

 

at my last skirmish i bumped into a few guys, one using a GBB 416 like it was a DMR, so i not have a reinvigorated optimism that GBBs can be accurate!

I also went for the amazon.co.uk deal of £1.90 for 500 fun snaps so thanks for the heads up on that :lol:

 

We shall soon find out if it is possible to muzzle load and shoot them out of an airsoft gun of some description, without setting them off in the barrel, so they bang on contact with their targets :)
