I briefly played around with gas blowback rifles but personally I didnt find them fun enough for me to put up with the maintenance needed. I have a couple of tm recoils I got cheap broken and while Ill admit they are definately not a replacement they are good enough for me.  I still use gas pistols of course though.

 

i can understand it, i'm happy to trade the grin factor for a gun that pretty much only works in summer but i get why others ain't so happy with that.

My ever growing infatuation with skulls is satiated....After 2 months of waiting, my second Jaw-bone mask(Face plate) commission finally arrived. Just waiting for the Polycarbonate lenses and mesh I ordered so I can finish this conversion project in time for my first game back.

The mask is slimmer, fits my face perfectly and since it's a face plate variant can be worn with hat's helmets etc so I don't need to be rocking a balaclava in the summer.

Hey. Striking fear into the hearts of your enemies is a genuine strategy. Refer to Vietnam :D💀

Nice one Squire. I still can’t believe that gave you an extra 60fps.  Flipping amazing what a good barrel and hop rubber can do. Also a bit of Sam’s magic too. Plus a fried Mars bar thrown into the gearbox too 😂

Lovely lads

To be fair, the gun I bought was shagged

it slung bb’s, but pathetically .........

it’s just as well I realised this by getting superior performance from my cheap JG G3 🤦🏻‍♂️

when I bought it off this forum I cleaned the barrel and hoped that was going to help with its performance

An obviously unloved pew, which needs some attention

When I bought it, it chrono’d at 240’s (fps),  now slinging .2’s at just over 300

Back at where the manufacturer’s said it should be

More to come, just a gearbox service and some broken components to be replaced. Lucky I have KOA on my doorstep (well an hour away)

This’ll cost me about another £200 to have it working the way it should be, But thanks go to #kingdomofairsoft for their help today 👍

must be a long version of the scar?

 

one of the advantages of shorter gnu's the fancy barrels are cheaper :P


You have picked up what I said wrong guys

i have paid £80~ish for the barrel and hop (fitted) 

Need to drop another £200 ish to get it properly serviced and replace a broken part for the bolt stop that they have made prototypes for (as the genuine part is unavailable anywhere)

yeah sorry, I realized that too.

 

80 including the work is okay, especially when you look at EdGi average price tags.

I was exhausted yesterday, so my reading and comprehension skills were equal to those of a broken fire hydrant :D

I wanted to shrink it a little bit, so turned it inside out and washed it at 10 degrees hotter then I should have. Sadly it didnt shrink, but even inside out, it faded where as my jacket is still full colour.  

 

The Predators I have ordered are the same size, but has a higher waist, so hopefully will fit better. They sold their last Large this morning so had to plump for XL. My waist is right on the cusp of the two sizes. 

 

I have given up on the dye idea and sold the Revenger Trousers to a fellow forumite :)

Finally got my box of mk5s ready to chuck around over the coming weeks. Despite a couple of shops point blank refusing to post I received them via a DPD delivery within 2 days so chuffed. 

Picked up an extended glock mag for the AAP and a rubber knife to replace the one I lost about 3 years ago :D

Basic onetigris Molle holster for my battle belt and a custom, silver/gun metal slide done by a friend for my KWA m9 tactical.

The pictures don't do the slide justice. The silvery goodness 😎
