  1. What kind of glue does everyone use to put the velcro on your helmets? I see it oozing over the edges on the real-deal ones as well.
  2. I thought the MC version of the Massif shirt was Mil/LE only (with ID required)?
  3. thinks that people with $2000 sniper rifles with $30 Leapers scopes are hilarious.

  4. I just counted...i have 23 airsoft guns in total. I don't know how i let it get so out of hand. What's not pictured is the half-dozen or so AEGs and another half-dozen GBBs not in the closet simply because i'm out of real estate.
  5. They now have level 3 serpas that protect the pistol as much as a safariland
  6. It doesn't seem like it gets in the way of my mags, but the next version is going to be about an inch thinner. I went a little overboard with the sizing on this.
  7. Had the day to myself today, so i decided to go forward with my admin pouch project. I found that the admin pouches the i've got (Emdom SAF panel, Eagle type admin) didn't do what i wanted them to do. There wasn't enough space to hold my wallet, mobile phone and a map (at the very least). I was looking into a Milspec Monkey Stealth Admin pouch, but it costs $30+ and no one seems to have the Multicam one in stock. So i poked around my bin of fabrics (the only thing i bought was the zipper) and came up with this. I'm calling this the beta, not even a version 1.0 because i'm already planning chan
  8. Have you considered getting a SERPA for a Glock 20? I have a TM Glock 18C AEP, and it will NOT fit in a standard G17/18 SERPA, but the version for the G20 (slightly wider frame in real-steel) is PERFECT for the TM.
  9. Very cool. Nice job, everything looks VERY tidy! I like the elastic retainers on the pistol mag pouches. I'm actually in the midst of modernizing a Chicom for a teammate. I'm swapping the toggles out for velcro, converting one of the grenade pouches to a radio pouch and the other to an M9 pouch. I will also change out the straps, like you have as well.
  10. I actually got it sorted out, it was a matter of me taking time and re-stitching it. It doesn't look as clean as the pair of Crye combat pants that i have, but then again, these don't cost $200!
  11. Gotcha. I sewed up one side of it yesterday, after making the pattern. I wanted to leave it removeable because my team runs like 3 different camos, and i find no need to buy multiple sets of kneepads. I'm having a little trouble with the contouring, the edges are puckering and looks a little sloppy. It fits fine and will hold up, but it's a bit sloppy looking.
  12. Nice job on the kneepads. I assume you've made them so that they're still removeable, right? How'd you deal with the height problem with the knee to the kneepad, or did you measure them up on yourself? I'm asking because my teammates are asking me to do it, and i don't think it's necessary to re-create Crye's vertical adjustment feature on the kneepads.
  13. Some custom gear that i've knocked out in the past few months. My current project is figuring out how to get Crye kneepads onto my BDU/DCU/ACU pants. MOLLE shirt/vest i made for a customer. The sleeves were removed and turned into a combat shirt; i didn't take pics of it before i delivered that project. Shotgun scabbard for my custom CA870 shorty shotgun. I needed one in Ranger Green AND short enough to fit my particular shotgun. I probably could've done without the double MOLLE webbing, but i wasn't sure if i would need the extra space to shift it around when mounting to my vest.
  14. Arent they super comfy? I love em. I wouldn't skate them, but they sure feel good on my feet.
  15. I bought mine the day they came out, paid retail (under $100). They're probably sold out, now except for resellers who are charging $200 for em.
  16. Vans Syndicate TNT II Multicam. Since snapping these photos, i've swapped out the laces for Coyote Brown 550 cord.
  17. It's not the last 2-3bbs issue that most mags have, i had some mags that were 3/4 and 1/2 full. WHen i released them they all slowly came out, instead of shooting out like my MAG mids. Is there a way to completely disassemble the mag and stretch the spring?
  18. Anyone have any idea as to what kind of ACU uniforms these guys have? The shirts and pants are totally not standard ACU cut blouses and trousers...The blouses have a bellowed pocket with split velcro on the sleeve, and the pants have a crye-type front thigh pocket. Those are the features i SEE. I don't know what others there are.
  19. The fit and finish on my PTS Pmags are really nice and fit most of my guns except for a Guarder-bodied M4. Has anyone found that the springs inside are a bit weak? I left a couple loaded for 2 days and when i went to unload them, the remaining bbs sort of dribbled out. I fear this may cause misfeeding issues.
  20. I've had my local gunsmith take a look at it and he declared it wasn't the gb. Could it be the ###### hopup unit?
  21. Does anyone have any feeding issues? Mine seems to only put a bb down the barrel every other shot in both semi and full.
  22. FWIW: According to Soldier Systems, the Army chief of staff is going to announce that ALL soldiers operating in Afghanistan will switch over to multicam uniforms and gear ASAP. This is just for Operation Enduring Freedom. Announcement should come in the next few days.
