    Forum updates, feedback system and new versions

    By Arnie

    Firstly I'm going to try to document forum updates and other work completed to the site here in my forum blog. This will keep all the forum related updates in one place.   I've completed several updates to the forums today. We're now running the latest IPS versions for Gallery and Blog. There should be several bug fixes and feature adjustments with these new versions; I don't get a list I'm afraid or I'd publish it.   I've also taken comments on the trading system on board and we now have a

It's like the matrix, but less professional

Oh I must enter a post must I? More demanding than my girlfriend this thing. *grumble*   What with my life being totally consumed by trying to move the entirety of it from the lower scottish highlands to suffolk, there's neither time nor money for airsoft shopping at the moment sadly. Of course I still browse the various retailers because it's like looking through the toys section in the Argos catalogue as a child, you might not be able to buy it all but, as with 'adult activities', the anti

N00b tube

I actually uploaded this yesterday, and i'd imagine there's a good chance that anyone reading this blog has already checked out the YouTube channel. But, if you haven't here's some footage of me slamming the VFC EGLM, and then 'dry' firing 4 shells full of propane out of my ARES EGLM.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRoivR8Ft1c   Fun stuff 40mm.   Reminds me of a time at a skirmish actually, I had the ARES launcher mounted to my 14.5" CASV Marui SOCOM, and no word of a lie, some chubby d

Hello you tubes

It's double posting madness today apparently. Other than building stupidly pimped-out Magpul guns, I also decided to finally get around to recording some airsoft chatty/reviewy/shooty stuff for YouTube. The first thing that came to mind, since I'd received a RS AR-15 buffer unit with one of my orders, was to compare a heavy recoil setup in one of the WA rifles to one using much lighter parts. Now lets see if I can get this embedding lark to work...   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhovYNSk2

Just not in time.

Well, the new builds are basically all done, they've been assembled, played with, checked, tested, and of course there's always more to tweak and tune (especially with WA's) but they do at least look very nice. Anyone wanting lots more pics of the guns or info, check out the magpul picture threads.   On a 'showing people your stuff' note, I'd like to mention that I coughed up for a 'pro' account on photobucket the other day, $25 for a year and it's a pretty sweet deal for anyone out there loo

Please love me, I crave attention

In a thinly veiled attempt at increasing the number of people that read this blog from 2, to the giddy heights of maybe 3 or 4, I have decided that I shall be posting up all my latest stuff here first rather than the appropriate picture threads in the pictures forum. So, since I'm in a rush and getting dragged out the door to the cinema by the missus right now, I'll keep it simple.   Where there's a will, there's a WA     Hope you enjoy.

Done. (mostly)

Well, I flew home on Saturday and have been working on turning the massive pile of boxes full of stuff that greeted me, in to some sort of correctly assembled set of airsoft weapons. it's been a bit of a pain sufficed to say, as per usual with any airsoft project manufacturers standards of tolerances and dimensions have been off here and there and not everything just slots together as it should; although not having bought anything ACM for this project has lessened that particular headache to so

Phew.

After over 2 days waiting in UK customs, the box full of RS magpul parts from the states has finally passed through. Bit of a tense moment there, the actual items themselves are perfectly legal to buy within the UK and obviously they're not made here but you can buy them from Midway UK so they must be ok to import, but US retailers reckon they're ITAR restricted so quite lucky I had a 3rd party to help me out on that front.   Had a bit of bad news the other day, in that the 4 GHK magazines I

*facepalm*

And so it hits, a lovely lovely import taxes bill from FedEx this morning. I actually can't even remember off the top of my head how long ago the guns turned up, suffice to say it's a fair old while. Their speed of shipping is great, the tracking system works great, they get things through customs incredibly quickly, even 2 WA GBB rifles which are about as close to the RS as you can get short of a de-act, so on the major criteria that you'd judge a courier by they're pretty awesome really.

Progress must be made!

How long should a blog entry be? I mean, obviously there's no actual defined limits, but is there a sort of convention? Is it considered not-cricket to write lots of short entries? Will people not take an interest in your blog if they feel it's more like a status update? I wonder. Considering the nature of airsoft and building guns and skirmishing, it seems to me like a paragraph or two and maybe a picture would be the sorts of things you'd put in, as your builds progress and you go out to

Shop Pics

thanks! Here's a few in-process shots: Three M2HB's, two are for Colonel Oberon at Nepa-Airsoft. The M1919 (and another) are shipping out this weekend. The third M2HB is mine, all mine! They're all sitting on the ShopBot after a long, HOT day in the garage cutting parts.   A trio of two's...ya know, I still have yet to build a twin setup? However, one of my customers has done TWO setups!   The thee holes in the receiver front allow the barrel to be trued to the body: up/down, left/r

BIG delivery

Well, the vat majority of the metal hardware for the new rifle project has rocked up, first time I've used UPS as a courier and I've been fairly impressed to be honest, HK to here in 4 days and that was the 'saver' option which wasn't much money at all. Always far better than using EMS and getting your stuff stuck in some depot while Parcel Farce snail mail you a snotty letter demanding money out of you before they'll deliver the stuff you paid for. Wankers...   Anyways, picture of lots of n

Oww.. my wallet.

Well, that's everything for the project finally paid for. I've got a shed load of WA rifle parts and all the other metal hardware on the way from WGC, and all the plastic accessories (stocks, grips, rail panels etc) will be on their way from the states shortly. It's all been paid for using paypal, and I'm glad it's all in $ because if the actual £ value was right there in black and white to plainly see I'd probably cry myself to sleep tonight.   There has been a glimmer of hope with the 2 WO

Use Google!...or should you

And it happened again.   I posted a topic and the first replies were ' use google', or 'after five hits on google' and similar. As much as I sometimes get annoyed with people posting questions on '1+1', I always invest that 5 seconds and write the answer (which is '2' by the way). What's the point of a forum, when all your asnwers are 'UTFG', 'find this', 'find that', 'moron, use search function' and so on? Maybe someone doesn't have as much time or it just doesn't occur to them, so we who hav

Gah.. customs...

Bloody TMC, costing me unnecessary money. A strong word of advice for anyone out there reading this, whenever you've got a sort of e-mail 'trail' going with a HK airsoft shop because you want something specific with an order, make doubly sure to remind them again of exactly what you want just before they ship it out, else they'll have forgotten.   Can't progress on the project now since I may (or may not!) be about to receive an enormous customs bill through from FedEx. If any of you could p

It begins...

Part of me doesn't want to reveal what I'm doing just now before it's ready, but I don't think many people will be looking here so just a quick preview. A picture paints a thousands words after all, so here's what rocked up at home today:     Obviously, they won't be staying like this for terribly long.

A smoothly running machine?

What DETERMINATION looks like, to a Web Developer. Getting over 650 pages to co-exist without something showing up here, is a good feeling, after the 250+ hours it took to set up. 2.43 GB/day average is streaming out, wow! Seeing XHELI and other 'copter site ads scrolling onto the pages, a GREAT feeling.

18 hour days.

Now building up the sitemap, and going back through the MANY mini-gun designs. The minguns will ALL become part of the massive miniguns how-to taking shape here: lots of sweeping yet to do, but have a looky, anyways. I've counted up about two dozen distinctly different multi-barreled creations that...I apparently built in the last few years (parts do get blurry with age). Now at 604 pages!
