I always have an eye on the boneyards. 2/3 of the guns I run were bought broken XD

I will have to start looking at boneyards. Any particular ones?

OK, so it's taken me a couple of days to post this, but I did say I'd been on a bit of a shopping spree while i'd been away! So here it is!!!   Do you think I've got a bit of an airsoft problem??..

I've just bought a Tippmann M4 setup from a certain member on here. Just without the long keymod and silencer.     The wife was very happy to hear this news. It's ok, I actual

TM Walther MPL.

Bbguns4less. There is a lot of shit and two tone to wade through but they also have a lot of gbb stuff people just didnt know how to use and returned. They are the reason I have 4 1911s. Be ready to do some stripping and repainting though

Soon Crye won't need to fulfill military contracts to keep the lights on.  They'll just wait for Chris' next order.

 

🤣 they actually don't make much off me (comparatively speaking), most of it comes from ebay.  Might get some of the hot weathers but that's it for now in terms of stuff that's commercially available, don't rate the PCs for airsoft personally.

The box of bits arrived today and in about an hour I had it mostly together. I didn't bother doing it 100% as it's coming apart soon to get completely rebuilt. It's scruffy and there are some fitment issues in a couple of places and a couple of bits missing but nothing that can't be fixed. Overall I'm really happy with it, it was cheap, it's lightweight and when it's done it'll be a good reliable backup or loner gun

I've been trying to prise this off a mate for a while, a KTW flintlock. Finally succeeded.

It's a Springer, about 230 fps but very accurate and consistent, which actually makes it a skirmishable gun.

About to buy a new grip for my SCARH. It seems Magpul grips should work with a bit of sanding on the grip / some shimming, I was going to get a PTS EPG M4 Grip:

But I stumbled across this one:

I think the two-toned one will look great on a Tan SCARH. Thoughts?

Went for a skirmish on Saturday just gone and came back with another recoil. TM Storm, a modern twist to the AK. And I can even add a CTR stock. Whoopie. 
 

Thanks to my mate who let me have it. Now I need some more mags!!!

I’ve been using the pistol holster in my VX chest rig, found it a little bulky. How does it work for you?

How is the viper chest rig? I'm after a cheaper alternative to buying a new WAS panel for each of my guns. 

 

In anticipation of eventually getting back on the field and hopefully getting my M249 up and running, I have become very aware of my skinny arms. So I've got myself a set of weights in the hopes that it'll last longer than half the first game 😂

The old thread is now fixed, so I've merged the temporary new thread with this one!

 

As you were!

I find it ok to be fair.
The trick I found is to holster your pistol into the insert and then insert the VX Holster insert into your chest rig with the pistol in. The Utility rig will then form around the pistol, so it fits well while still allowing the pistol to have room.

It's really really good. Especially considering how little they cost.. about £24 in some shops!

It's especially convenient being able to have each one set up for a different play style too. Saves having to buy a new plate carrier and pouches for each eventuality.

I've no complaints about the quality either, the stitching is nice and tidy and they feel very robust.

 

Very much recommend the newer Viper gear (just maybe avoid the older stuff)

I've picked up a Karrimor SF dump pouch to replace my old one as my old one was incompatible with molle.

 

I've been contemplating ordering a few bits and pieces but it's hard to justify when I'm just not getting the play time due to trying to reduce my risk of exposure to ze plague.

Thanks. How easy is it to swap out the inserts? I was going to have multiple sets of inserts with a single rig for my 9mm and .308 guns

General tip for any spiritus and associated clone rigs; put whatever you're gonna carry in to the insert beforehand as mentioned, whether it's 556 mags, SMG, whatever, then kinda bend it in to a curve and push it in.  Only the convex side of the velcro will try and stick on the way down and you can just slide a piece of paper/your hand/your Trojan Magnums in there to stop it adhering before the insert is fully home.  After 1 or 2 goes you can swap loadouts in seconds.
