  1. My Sig Mk24 project, based on the issue P226 non railed as used by US Naval Special Warfare in the mid naughties. Built around a TM, although... probably only a few pins and springs left now. Installed a Guarder kit, and all the associated Steel parts. Has had a real Hogue grip modified to fit on it.The special sauce is the real old gen Sig #7 rear sight that the slide had to be milled to fit. Finished with a Surefire P114-C, Sig Lunchbox and a real Sig magazine. Cheers, Michael

  2. A little more oldschool today. Viper Tech replica of a Colt 733. Need to change a few things to properly replicate the one seen in Heat. And swap out the furniture for some surplus. But it's mostly there.

  7. can't believe I forgot to post this bad boy up...got rid of the 17 (pictured above) and grabbed a 45 (I own a real 45, so it only made sense to switch airsoft over to a 45 also)... For the sake of the photo's, real Glock has the TLR-1 and airsoft has the M3X. I do actually have a tlr-1 rep for the airsoft as well, just figured it would make the pictures a little less..."confusing"...if they had different lights! The G45 is an Umarex (VFC), and is pretty faithful to the real one. The one thing I "don't like" is that the real steel backstraps do not fit (at least

  12. I haven't had the opportunity to skirmish it yet, but so far I am extremely pleased. I expected basically a GHK with fancy externals and was pleasantly surprised to find it's more than that. I'm using GHK stanags (wanted the option to Devilhunter mod them), but they were a lot of work to fit. It's not really 'half-travel' by default, more like 3/4 travel, but you can take out a spacer to make it full travel at the cost of a bit of felt recoil and ROF. Here's a more extensive writeup I posted to Reddit in response to someone asking about it: Anyways, actually getting one is a

  14. I found another video which answers a few questions around the grip/battery. Auto-translate now available on this, so I watched it again although it was a lot harder to follow this time. As best I can tell - Handguard mounts the same way as the real one. Will work with standard nimh batteries (looks like 8.4v mini). Marui are releasing their own Lipo, which will work with this but won't be available for another 6 months or so. There's some sort of proprietary connector in place that the lipo will plug into (but the MP5 comes with a converter as standard so you can

After I got to S&T's Facebook page where it originated, I found a video of the SMLE being tested. https://www.facebook.com/smartteamhk/posts/4014138622014877 https://www.facebook.com/smartteamhk/photos/a.3890812301014177/4003303039765102/ Also, they're apparently making a full-size M1887 gas shotgun (Marushin copy, just with bigger bells and whistles): https://www.facebook.com/smartteamhk/posts/3925672670861473

  18. There are a couple of options for out-of-the-box-compatible STANAGs. EB-Tech makes the ones that VT supplies with their rifles, and they're a bit heavy but work well. WA-spec mags are significantly wider than real-steel ones. I looked at it earlier and getting GHK internals into a real STANAG shell would be difficult. Probably not impossible, but probably not worth the work versus modifying the GHK shells. After a lot of frustrating sanding and fitment I realized that the main culprit was that the GHK mags aren't bent perfectly, and they bow outward ever so slightly in the middle. Giving

  19. 1.0 IntroductionThe most common item of the Plate Carrier is probably the front panel, also called Placard, mostly a Triple-M4 Mag Pouch, variant such as Flap, Open Top, Stretch, or Rigid.For my own Plate Carrier project I chose this TMC Triple Stretch Detachable Mag Panel (TMC 3465-MC) based on the Crye Stretch Detachable Flap. With this choice I actually went a bit against my own principles, where I normally choose repro's of items witch are frequent used in reality.Turns out this Crye Stretch Pouch is extremely rare "in the wildIronically, this pouch is featured in the CBS series SEAL TEAM,

  23. And yet, not even the 805 got a similar gearbox. About the Marui, I'll probably get it when it comes out. Pushing it 40fps higher shouldn't be that bad for the internals, but what really bugs me is the fact that they didn't care to use stamped steel for the receiver yet they went with aluminium for the front.

  24. 1.0 Introduction For my TMC 3219 Plate Carrier witch i reviewed earlier here. I made already my set of ESAPI training plates in real weight and finish I also made a set of E-SBI (Enhanced Side Ballistic Insert), these serve to protect the vital organs from side impact, and should be carried in a dedicated Side Plate Pouch, for for my TMC 3219 I wanted a so-called Crye (Repro) 6X6 Side Plate Pouch Set. These Side Plates Pouches show up either sporadically in “the wild”, which does not surprise me because it is again e

  25. FYI I bought the TMC 6x6 side plate bags and their SAPI and side plate kit and I can confirm that the TMC dummy side plates are a little bit too large for the bags. But I managed to force them in there and after working the foam around a bit in the side plate bags it turned out OK.

  26. 6.0 The 3-Strap Skeletal Cummerbund After i reviewed my TMC 3219 (AVS), i started with the actual set-up, (and for witch i want to achieve a DA-set-up actualy) I wanted to try out the more rigid CPC set-up, and at the same time I also wanted a Tubes closure to have less Velcro wrestling with the cummerbunds. I made already this Topic earlier about QR closures and Tactifans btw The Tactifans 3-strap Cummerbund turned out to be the most economical, it is based on the MOS Tactical which uses the First Spear Tubes.

  27. I am buying it no matter what. I’ve already spend tons of money on my real mp5( well, civilian hk sp5) here in the U.S. I have already paid the NFA tax stamp to SBR it with a German a3 stock (these go for about 600-700$) and running a surefire hand guard with an aimpoint comp m5. The second NFA stamp is for the suppressor omega 9k. German made mags go for 90-100$ and I’ve bought 7... I also bought the knights rail (had been rare to get up until this point) but have not decided to put it on because it will mar the finish. Will prob put that rail on this Tokyo Marui mp5. Ammo

I already posted this elsewhere, so apologies if you've already seen (or indeed, had already watched the video) Just rewatching the Youtube video and there are translations available now (which weren't when I first watched it), which is worth a look if you're interested in that sort of thing.

  31. Hello Everyone, Long time airsofter here but have been out of the game for a while. I started and ran a group for 5 years a couple of years back. I wrote and have just recently published a book with 68 airsoft game scenarios and 130 variants. There is nothing like this out there. You know that Google searches for different airsoft games usually give you a top 10-20 games and they're all the same. This book gives you 68. So far I've sold 160 copies and feedback has been super positive. Novritsch posted it up on his Instagram stories a couple weeks ago. He thought the book was awesome;

  33. My new to me ICS SG551. I've always loved the 550, but know that those are like finding a unicorn in a hayfield, and never really grew fond of the 552...so when I saw this 551 for sale I jumped on it! don't really have any big plans for it...it supposedly has an upgraded barrel, hopup, and lonex motor (I have yet to rip into it). Eventually I'll open it up, reshim it, and give it a good look...but so far just handling it, I love it!

  35. I had the opportunity to put the Striker through its paces last weekend. (Striker footage starts about two minutes in) For ammunition, I used APS X-Power shells, filled with gaseous CO2, and loaded with 11x 0.2s sandwiched between a pair of 0.75" cards made from 140lb watercolor paper. FPS was measured at 210-250. My impression is that the gun is excellent for CQB. Twelve shots is plenty high capacity (to the point where I never reloaded 'in the field', only in the safe room), it fires as quickly as I can pull the trigger. There are a couple of double-taps in there on

  36. No issues here on the commercial side of things. The commercial rule is to stop people simply arriving on the forums for one thing abs then going. Anyone that engages in the forum with people constructively (or asks us direct for permission) is here for the right reasons.

  37. First batch is done and the process has been ironed out, so I can confidently say that this deficiency in the base design has been addressed, and these guns are now 100% good to go. I can keep making these as long as people want them, so if anyone's interested shoot me a PM or contact my team through Facebook. Mods, I apologize if this is veering into a commercial post- just figured this is the most relevant place, since the plastic barrel is really the only glaring weakness of the original gun.

  39. Both of us have tracking numbers, but both still show pre-shipment. No response to our emails, just suddenly ship notifications showed up. Related, it turns out that Armson is still around (!) and still selling (!!!) occluded-eye gunsights for the Striker. Here's an example of one in use. Technically this is on a Protecta so not an 'actual' Striker / Street Sweeper, but the mounting is the same:

  43. So long as it works, and you have a few mags, a TM 552 is going to be just fine. Don't get caught up in *needing* the latest and greatest. power limits are still basically the same, most players still can't set a hop properly and TMs always had decent range to begin with. That said there's a crazy selection of cool stuff if you do want to get new kit. I've not been keeping up to date all that well (except for shotguns )

  45. Digging around about the slow rof I came across adadqgg's mention of a fix involving staples. Basically the recoil spring and guide bind from tight tolerances in the bolt carrier from the top cover latch being slightly tilted. The earlier fix was to put a shim under the top cover which pushes the latch up when put down. I found an easier method by simply taping/gluing a sheet of aluminum (from a can or bottle cap) at the back corner of the latch itself. The foam rubber buffer helps a bit in increasing rof too but it's there mostly to keep things from mashing each other to death. edit: Al
