The 'What have you just bought' Thread

Recommended Posts

The one I sold was an A2 I’d had from a mate who’d bought it just before he went to uni during which he went to Aus and basicaly never came back (only long enough to sell everything he could) I was going to make it an A1 so got hold of the triangle front end never skirmished it but then wanted another TM recoil so sold everything I could . AND after looking at the appraisal pics I’m 100% certain it’s the one I sold , as the scratch on the barrel is from me trying to get a cheap’n’nasty laser off of it that had been lock-tite’ed on ! 

So I’m fairly confident I can say it approx 13yr old and up until 7yrs ago it hadn’t been skirmished at all ! 😁 👍

Sanded down the scratches to get them flat, 180 grade wet & dry, then 1500 to feather the edges. Left the rest of the original paint on

No undercoat and it will get nice natural wear marks.

 

Grips just undercoat and several layers of top coat 

Thanks again.

Please don't hate me...but had to buy one! :)  Can't wait to test this 40Mike out...comes with an awesome patch.  (Also got the ASG Storm grenade fixed...realised it also fits perfectly into my BMW drinks holder...lol)

Like I’ve said all the time bud it’s not the grenade I’ve a problem with it’s the small minority of spunktrumpet’s who’ll miss use it that worried me about it use . 👍

I am old and wise... and I can say that I am not a 'spunktrumpet'..lol  :)

 

Only in certain circumstance will I use it..mostly, probably for shock & distraction.  It will probably get very little use..but it's fun!

Brought a silencer and adapter for my striker but the adapter hasn’t come yet, so thought I’d try it on my m4.

Its a touch long for cqb but I really like the look

No such thing as too long for CQB mate , I’ve played with a full length M14 and an SLR ! 

M4 Looks cool as a penguins dangling bits with that suppressor on it so crack on ! 👍

My first ever cqb game was with a m16 rental 😂 I’ll give it a blast because I do really like how it looks, I can always change it mid day

Its a GunsModify extended magazine release. It’s meant to make it easier to use when you have gloves on. And also looks cool lol

Adapter has come for the striker and I’m not keen 😂 the diameter on the action army adapter is smaller that the outer barrel so looks a bit odd in my opinion. Going to order the ares one see what that’s like. It’ll do for game day tho, does make the gun a lot quieter 👍 I’ll post a picture later on

Looks lovely and neat on the floor , UNTIL you stand up with it on your back then it all slides to the bottom of the pack , rattles like hell , scratches everything in there to buggery and stabs you in the kidneys just for shits’n’giggles! 🤦‍♂️

T’is a nice rucksack though 👍

just not the way you’ve laid it out ! 😂😂😂

I love TG. That is, until I shoot the rif lol.
But I haven't shot it yet, so am happy.
I'm locking it to semi - Currently sits at 420fps, with zero hop, according to the test sheet.

I like it, mostly. There is only one thing I don't like.
It is built for people with Donald Trump-esque hands...
Who would have thoughts hands were so small in the East?

The grip is small, as is the gap between the grip and the mag.
I think it will take some getting used to - but in principle, I like it a lot!
AND it comes with a free battery and a free universal charger - it comes with a special bent prong, so it won't fit any socket on the planet.

i suspect much like russian tank drivers, you just dont get one if your hands are too big.

 

or they just dont care

 

probably the latter, it's russia after all.

Nope - it's an SVU - a bullbup version of the SVD Dragunov 😄

I would wrap the guns in something to protect them from scratching of course :)

But mostly used for uni to fit the lappy and books.

Didn’t really think you would (well hoped you wouldn’t! 😂) mite be worth getting some thick foam , cutting it to the shape of your pack then cutting spaces in it for your guns and mags ?

New Glock, dirt cheap Umarex G17

Pretty gun, terrible hop & mags

 

Fortunately, TM & WE Mags fit and work perfectly, Maple Leaf TM barrel and hop units fit and work perfectly.

 

Practical Pistol on Tuesday, it could be my new favourite hand-gun 😎
