      Damn haha when were you last on? This forum is basically dead now (no offence intended to anyone) - facebook has killed off most of them. Still a few regs knocking about. 2 forum members have since died - Aitch, and i feel bad saying this - some guy who's name i forgot.

    SMG Picture Thread

    A bodged vfg was used by one of the chaps who posed with thatcher. Looks like an ar15 or ar18 grip with bit of cable tie action too.

    PEQ or DBAL?

    I have two EX 276's which is the red dot version. I'm very happy with the output of the laser, you don't want it too strong anyway but at night time it exceeds my effective range, and its visible in doors in the day time. I've not used it outside in a skirmish. The build quality is good generally speaking - the body feels pretty solid and as far as it goes, hefty. however the covers for the torch and lasers fell off one unit within a few skirmishes (not ideal but not a disaster) and the other has broken the laser zero adjustment on it's first skirmish (or during transit perhaps). So taping up the more vulnerable bits is probably a good idea. The peq is really a laser first and a torch second i suppose. The torch isn't that powerful and has a fair splash, maybe useful in some situations but i rarely use it. You only have the one button, and you can select between viz laser, ir laser, torch, viz laser + torch. the latter option isn't very useful imo. So if you want to toggle between laser and torch it's best to have a torch as a torch and the peq for the laser, dual switches are useful for this but not necessarily essential

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    Playing in woodland at night is very challenging (espicially without NODs!) but thats part of the fun shurely!? Insurance playing a role is plausible but im sorry to say that a fair amount of sites will do the bare minimum to keep the same locals turning up 2 sundays a month and that extends to night games. Fortunately a few places are starting to pick up on the demand for them - though this seems to be in the summer, its almost like darkness is seen as a bug not a feature. Case in point: site near me started doing saturday night games... they stopped early december... literally the only reason id go there is cause its a skirmish on a saturday night, its otherwise completely unremarkable. South coast cqb (cracking site) only does evening games on a thursday march-august too. Night games also present challenges when it comes to marshalling. A bunch of us recently went to a semi-private night game with mandatory tracers and it was great. Suffice to say some NODs are on the shopping list! If south coast cqb / the gaol did saturday evening games - even in the winter(!!!) Id be there on a monthly basis, even with at least 5 total hours of driving. One can dream! My final moan is: sites that only do sundays.. why!?!?! Going skirmishing on a saturday then for pints after with nothing to do the next day but sleep is probably my ideal weekend.
  6. There's not much in the way of shops with showrooms in the Gloucestershire area - there was Swindon Airsoft (now Strikeforce I think) but I don't think they have a shop with showroom anymore. If you are based in Gloucestershire there is the aforementioned Strikeforce which is an "american style" plywood killhouse. There is also UCAP Vendetta at the former HMP Gloucester. Further afield you have Spartan CQB (former 6th Form College) and F&O's The Base CQC which is a cool back-to-nature former RAF base. I can't help with appraisals but you can post in the classifieds without needing 100 posts now.

    AK sight mounting.

    Generally its easier to pick up the dot when its further back, but the unit itself will take up more space in your vision as RC said. I dont really think theres much in it as theres personal preference and depending on platform only so many places to mount. You could also try one of those mounts that replace the rear sight - that will raise it a bit too. As for neck pain - its an interesting one but i wouldnt say shouldering a rifle is an odd posture and if you find that its inducing neck pain / migraine i think that is a symptom not a cause. Certainly doesn't sound fun! Cheers

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    They put on a good day - some questionable choices as to where to put spawn points but i've not had a bad day yet. I also need to check out sentinal's The Outpost - formely x-site. I thought it closed and forgot about it!

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    My interpretation of zed adventures is that they announced a change of ownership and dropped a teaser for the new site. These things take time to sort out so i'm not overly concerned but we'll see!

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    Time for a bump! For reasons not fully understood I attended a testing day at a new CQB/Urban site near Redhill. I dunno how much I can say but its a training facility built with a government grant to train security, emergency responders and so forth. Essientially its a model town centre built in a 17,000 sq/ft warehouse. Lots of it are two storeys. There are sound effects and lighting options. A guy who i skirmished with said it was 4x the size of bunker51, if that helps. I think another game will be held in August with more people (we played 4v4) and more details will be forthcoming. Deffo one to watch! Otherwise as people may have seen Zed Adventures will be announcing details of a CQB site near Reading. UCAP are working on a site related to the former bramley hall police training centre. Looks like they plan to use this for Friday evening games and some battle/mil sims.

    Yea thats what i meant - it was the first regular AEG lmg and this is the first NGRS LMG. I'm not trying to shill for TM on this one but i dont think its as simple as getting measurements from g&p and just investing in some new features - for example they claim the recoil is twice as strong as the m4. But we'll see!
