    Marui Festival 2019

    Fair enough, the end result is the same though. Tokyo Marui stuff, while technically really good in a lot of ways, is expensive and hard to find, and sometimes lacks features that are pretty standard in a lot of other brands. Please don't take my post as being "anti-Marui", I own and have owned numerous Tokyo Marui replicas, my first AEG was a Tokyo Marui FAMAS, and the best GBB pistols I have are Tokyo Marui. But these days, if someone is buying an AEG, unless they have money to burn, Tokyo Marui probably aren't that high on their list and for good reason.

    Marui Festival 2019

    Seems like every industry in Japan is like that regarding international sales. If you're into their entertainment, anime's fairly accessible, and to a lesser degree their films and live-action dramas, but they offer next to nothing in terms of a sustained fan base for music. I can't imagine such a small market like airsoft still is would be any different. The price of their high-end AEG and GBBR offerings is prohibitive, and their legacy AEG line has readily accessible and cheaper alternatives from Taiwanese manufacturers.

    it's not a holier than thou attitude. look at my above post it is not financially worth it for the Japanese companies to officially export airsoft, Airsoft is a niche market and the big companies are not that big. That's why stuff goes out of stock all the time they don't have the production capacity to constantly produce all their products, stuff is made in cycled batches.

    To this day many Japanese companies have a "holier than thou" approach to foreign markets, that may have been fine 15 years ago when their products were head and shoulders above the rest ... not so much nowadays.

    Most reliably found product of theirs outside Japan is RC stuff, I believe...

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Besides the usual pains I've expressed before, I wasted time, money, and parts trying to get a backup gearbox set to go in my 74m body. Spent almost a week and it just wouldn't work right, so I ended up taking the 12:1 gears I got for it to work on the 105 gearbox again. Cue finding out why it made a clunk noise a few months back, the metal spring guide had come apart and the piston head had come undone. In a gearbox sporting a m95 spring that had probably been used for less than 20 midcaps over the last few months... I'm done trying to do tech work, if I could I'd convert everything to hpa and be done with it now. I have had so much frustration just trying to do simple things, and even when I think they are fine, stuff breaks way too early afterwards. I need gearboxes that will work without needing a spring change, aoe correction, etc. and don't cost a cyma to acquire at this point. Just puts a damper on any moment of trying to take my mind off all the other *suitcase* right now.

    Select fire conversion for M249

    Bit of a necropost, but I figure an update is in order. I ordered a Burst Wizard, which I intend to program with a 1 round "burst" and a 1 second delay. This will manifest as such: Upon pulling the trigger, 1 round will fire. Keeping the trigger depressed results in no additional rounds being fired for 1 second. Keeping the trigger depressed longer than 1 second results in normal full auto fire. This effectively converts the trigger into a 2-stage setup, with the difference between stages dictated by time (rather than distance pulled). I believe the 1 second delay removes any possibility of me accidentally full-autoing people in close quarters. I'll do some testing to ensure that this assumption is correct.

    Marui Festival 2019

    For marui to be officially interest in out side of Japan and have formal exports they would have to bend over to some one like cybergun or they would spend for ever in court fighting copyright. If you think TM is expensive now just see what it would be like with TM paying royalties. The market is just not worth it for them financially. TM make a lot of other thing beside airsoft.

    G&G GTP-9

    Can't vouch for this one although buying one is on the cards but I do have the G&G GPM92 and that really is an excellent GBB imo when it comes to build quality, fit, finish and the price for the set in the nice blow moulded hard case. Hopefully G&G expand the GBB range, I think something like a G&G P226 could be lovely especially if they did one for a similar price to the other pistols. Out of interest does anyone know what the diameter of the outer barrel on the GTP-9 is?

    Marui Festival 2019

    Yeah, it's a shame but it has always been the reality. Much as a like and generally rate a lot of their products it's also why I don't go along with the "ONLY BUY MARUI" Fanboys, it doesn't make sense to support a company with that much vehemence that honestly probably wouldn't care if they had zero market share outside of Japan. Marui are interesting inovaters, still make excellent GBB pistols, and very good, if relatively expensive AEGs but they aren't motivated by a lot of the trends outside of Japan. It's cool that they are making an AKM (only like 15 years late to the game, lol) and I hope it adds something to the market but I'm not going to go wild over something that will cost hundreds of dollars, and doesn't have a steel receiver, regardless of how reliable the system is.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Three gun inspired long gun, as rail was half inch longer than barrel threw a can on the end. May build a similar one on an ERG AR at a later date, this is just a boring old regular AEG ( ICS ).
  19. ICS-20 M4 Carbine featuring ICS Split Gearbox Design which makes the gun a breeze to work on or clean. This is a full Metal Proline gun not cheap polymer Sportline. Has had the gear box shimmed and greased and recently been re wired by DZ Tactical including the fitting of a basic mosfet in the stock tube. Because of the mosfet an excellent quality KWA Crane Stock ( or you can have the Emod shown in one of the pics ) has been fitted so plenty of space for batteries which are on T Connectors ( Deans ). There is also a tight bore barrel fitted, I’m not sure of the make but it is black if that helps. The forend is a genuine M Lok 15″ item. Attached to the end of this is a slimline suppressor. A Magpul enlarged trigger guard and ambidextrous receiver sling plate are also fitted. Gun will come in original box with two extra Hi Caps for a total of three. £185 plus postage and packaging to be paid by bank transfer. I have ticked yes for swaps ( always interested in HK Replicas or WA Handguns ) but at moment cash is really king. A valid defence will be needed and will be checked.

    It comes from a Madbull Patriot kit. Mines the long foregrip which was shortened, which was what I had at the time. The Short foregrip version would be more authentic. Then as you pointed out, is the problem with the pitch. Madbulls work on RS pitch, while ICS is on original Marui Pitch which is thicker by a mm overall for both ID/OD. Takes a bit of effort to deepen the grooves with dremel and cutting disc. The barrel is actually custom made also to achieve the effect. Its great having a lathe at home.

    Kind of. Work to rule is one of the things a union can do to force companies to the negotiation table. If there is a culture of the staff working unpaid overtime or skipping permitted breaks or similar then work to rule will mean that everyone behaves exactly as their contract specifies. Usually slows down production. Malicious compliance is usually effective if there is one particularly stupid boss who tells you to do something like "check all the keyboards and throw away any dirty ones". Normally you'd say "did you mean clean them?" If doing malicious compliance you'd go round, collect all the the keyboards (all keyboards are dirty) and chuck them in the compactor. Now nobody can do any work and the business gets a bill for £20,000 to replace all the keyboards. You get hauled into the office for it and then say "boss A told me to do it".

    How did you achieve that handguard? Can’t find any Airsoft examples. Only real steel which will have a different pitch on the barrel nut

    Unfortunately that probably wouldn't work as luckily I don't have to deal with him daily and he likes jobsworths who can only follow instructions without thinking for themselves. He's doing a site visit tomorrow so I'll see what flavour of he feeds me and take it from there
