    yes it is, it's a Lonex Flash-mag. I put it in for appearances sake only, as I don't have any TM Recoil M4 mags to hand. Good eye sir!

    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    After an extremely long build and preparation period, I'm happy to announce that PureSilver's TM Recoil SOPMOD M4 is FINALLY complete. In 2011 PureSilver came to me with this gun totally stock back when I worked at Pro Airsoft Supplies and from there we started the long and arduous process of making it the best TM Recoil M4 money can buy. While it wouldn't be correct to say that there are no TM parts left, PS and I have done our best to remove as many of them as possible, and this is the end result; http://i.imgur.com/H23zQdr.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Q4CA5Fa.jpg http://i.imgur.com/MAj8YDw.jpg I think it's safe to say that this is the best TM Recoil M4 in the world at this time.

      The Magpul PDR's gearbox is attached to the receiver by four screws, and the screwholes at the back open directly to the motor cage. A "little" too much loctite and poof! Broken xD. Took hours to clean it all out!

      It's refreshing to see someone not completely arselicking Nuprol.

  8. Turns out, a G&P SPR is a better choice than a DBoys SPR. Funny that...

      PC Dre's been wanting a new/working DMR-rifle for a while now, we were considering getting a DBoys SPR and gutting it to be cheap, but I persuaded him to splash a bit'o'cash and get a G&P instead.

  9. Friend might be buying a D-Boys gun! :o

      There must be some reasoning to this?

      I'm going to gut the internals completely and use only the externals, which are going to get sprayed! Nothing can go wrong! :o

      Oh damn, it's gone wrong already. It's out of stock, likely never to return.

    Are you using the stock Plastic selector plate? If so you can rectify the problem by either buying the expensive prometheus metal plate or by building up epoxy (I find Araldite Metal 2k works great for this) on the part of the trigger that gets blocked by the selector plate and shaping the lump so that it prevents the trigger from tripping the microswitch when on safe. I had to do it about a week ago to a TM SCAR-H for Wildecard.

    Cybergun/VFC FNX-45

    I heard that the HK street price was around $150

    Cybergun/VFC FNX-45

    But how does that assumption correlate with the initial retail price at Bunny Workshop and CRW Airsoft being $135, only slightly more than the M&P, before they were instructed to raise the price by Cybergun. Just yesterday, WGCshop listed the gun at $180, $45 less than the MRP! I also doubt the assumed reason mentioned a few months ago that Cybergun raised the wholesale price which caused the HK retailers to have to raise their prices - you know damn well that the HK retailers would not ship a gun they were making a loss on, they'd simply politely ask for more money or offer to cancel the order. Your recollection of the issues G&G were having with the FN F2000 and SCAR replicas is not strictly correct - G&G gave up licensing their products through Cybergun not as a result of significant incurred costs, but because Cybergun insisted on distributing all the products themselves, limiting order quantities to levels that were economically unfeasable to G&G, and at one point, ordering SCARs made by a different manufacturer without telling G&G. G&G stopped dealing with them because Cybergun abused their business relationship to the point of absurdity. Having not held or examined the gun, I make no claim of a lack of quality at this time. I only comment on it's unreasonable price given the assumption that the quality is on par with the more-than-acceptable VFC M&P and StarkArms Glocks.

    Cybergun/VFC FNX-45

    It's showing as $225 now.

    Cybergun/VFC FNX-45

    Just because the Safety/Decocker moves when racking the slide, doesn't imply or necessitate a weak linkage or part, and assuming so seems odd and unnecessary. There is no evidence to suggest that Cybergun are paying anything for the licensing of the appearance and trademarks for this gun, considering that Cybergun already hold the license for FNs guns near-worldwide, and near-freely give KingArms and Chinaclone brands the ability to produce FN-style guns with "official" trademarks. Until I see evidence suggesting that Cybergun have to pay more to produce replicas of additional guns, or pay a royalty per gun sold, the licensing costs excuse holds no water as far as I'm concerned. Furthermore, the metal slide should not cost cybergun perceptibly more per unit. The Zinc/Aluminium casting alloy used for Airsoft GBB pistols is really really really cheap, as evidenced by unlicensed full-metal pistols from WE and SRC being available for as little as $80. If the metal slide and "licensing costs" were so significant, how can Cybergun afford to sell the (reputably excellent) M&P9 for nearly $100 less per pistol? Firstly; An assumption based on (what I believe to be) flawed reasons. Secondly; The pistol is still notably more expensive than any non-limited-edition Marui pistol available. Thirdly; You keep mentioning "cheap hammer/trigger mechanism parts" and flawed metallurgy, have you experienced any issues yet? Fourth; a MRP (Minimum Retail Price) of $225 for a gun that, as you claim, has a weak "hammer/trigger mechanism", poor metal in the slide/barrel and no mini-RedDot compatibility at this time, despite initial promises to the contrary isn't "a tiny bit steep", it's massively overpriced. Fifth; I haven't got much faith in KJW as a GBB innovator, certainly, they manufacture some GBBs that function very well, but all of their guns are straight-up clones of TM designs, and often have considerable issues regardless. In all but a few cases, I consider KJW inferior to WEtech. Sixth; If Cybergun "up their game", I should hope that they do so by being less greedy and reducing the price. If they intend to keep the price as-is, I expect the internals to be 100% bulletproof-perfect in reliability and functionality. If the price increases further, Cybergun might as well end production now as I suspect the majority of players will pick less extortionately expensive guns. Two of my good friends who were extremely keen on purchasing this pistol have decided to get SAI-slided Glocks instead based on the preposterous price and the MRD mounting charlie-foxtrot. Personally, I wouldn't spend that sort of money on anything other than a gun customised by someone like Mike Cripps. Lastly; this post is suspiciously different from your usual posting style from what I remember. Were you not a known and established member who's posted photos of many guns I covet (particularly your KSC System7 CZ75 in Prime 1st-ver kit), I would accuse you of being a Cybergun shill. Nonetheless, I have found your post quite confusing.

    Hey buddy. An application of Cerakote "Midnight Blue" (H-238Q) with double hardener (12:1) is the closest "paint" finish to resembling a glossy blue finish. 18:1 is close to satin and 24:1 would be matte
