  1. I'm running an Angry Gun 6.03 with a Firefly soft in my XM177.


    At 340fps with a .20, I'm still over hopping a .30 slightly. It's straight and level out to about 50m, and then heads slowly up (hop is on about as minimum I can get whilst retaining the bb in the hop).


    Saying that, I've only put about 150 rounds through this hop, so I'm really hoping it beds in a bid. I don't mind using .40, but the players I'm shooting might :P.

  2. No its a Warrior PLB belt with TPS and other custom pouches all in FG. I can get a pic next week for you if you want?

    Ah, I'm with ya :)


    That's cool mate, I'm familiar with the PLB. I'm trying to find an FG chest rig in the UK. Failing that, I'll have to go with the Beez tactical rig.


    Thanks mate.

  3. Its not out yet and won't be for a while.. it was only announced recently!




    This is what I was wearing for part of last Saturday, I'm on the right..

    (kit list available if anyone wants it..)


    Is that an FG chest rig on the table? Any info on it please?


    Cheers :)

  4. Difficult to get details... 


    Current reports are that they've basically flown over with a chopper, and the door gunner got a bit trigger happy.


    Seems he took more hostages out than terrorists, but given the nature and fluidity of the situation - Don't quote me on it.


    Just amazes me, than having been offered international (trained and professional) assistance - and declined.... They're steaming in on their own.


    No doubt they'll have their hands out for a few million $ to train a force up afterwards (and spend it on solid gold BMWs or somesuch).

  5. I saw this issue a couple of pages back, and it does indeed appear to be (very slightly) raised at the back. By about 1mm (so enough to tilt the feed lips out)


    Stripped the mag down and reseated the top section, but it refuses to sit flush. Tightening the screw further is risking stripping the threads... The metal used for the screw itself is very soft!


    Unfortunately unable to take a pic right now, but I think I've found the issue... Just not a way to fix it yet :P.


    On another note. Do these 20 round mags take 20, or 30 rounds?? The manual states 30, but I've read that trying to force more bbs in than you should, will almost certainly break it, so I'm loath to find out just by trying to load 30 in.


    Appreciate the help though... Ironically I went gas, as taking a gearbox apart just never goes well for me! :D

  6. Hi guys...


    I've taken the plunge and bought an OB XM177e2... Love it, great fun etc...


    Quick fix needed please, I'm aware it's a known issue (by searching on the various forums), but nowhere seems to explain the actual fix.


    I'm using the 20 round mags, and one of them doesn't want to sit properly. The magazine feed lips don't clear the feed ramp (correct term?), so the mag won't insert fully without a good smack (which seems to be the generally considered 'fix'). Whilst I'm not afraid to put a reasonable amount of force behind seating a mag, with the bolt locked back, I can see it's a good 1mm+ of overlap to overcome with brute force, and I'd rather not ruin the feed ramp, or excessively smash the mag lips (which are already showing wear from the couple of times I've given it a whack).


    There is no obvious difference between this one mag with an issue, and any of my others which seat fine - So there's nowhere obvious I need to file down. Can anyone suggest a fix, or is this just one of those things, and I have a defective magazine?


    Should I take a file to the front of the lips, or will that cause further issues?


    Any help very gratefully received :) Thanks in advance.

  7. Uh, not now or anytime soon :P


    The only issued sights are the BUIS, EoTech 552 and Elcan C79A2. Alot of guys will go out though and buy their own BUIS or optics, so lots of variety can be found.


    Personally I've been using the issued BUIS for awhile, but I'll soon have a DIS for work. :)


    Cheers for that :)


    Now to see how many internal organs I'll have to sell, to obtain a Diemaco BUIS :P

  8. The BDU's they have aren't bad, compared to other BDU's...but compared to CF Combats (what we're issued) they're not good :P

    If you have no other options, I'd say go for them.


    And nice C8, SFW it would be ;) you can read through this thread for an idea of how to build a C8 top to bottom.



    Cheers Lerch.


    I would buy issue, but it seems anyone selling them on Ebay are ripping people off with shipping costs :(. I'm happy to pay for quality kit, but I'm not paying more than the kit to get it over here :P.


    I know the C8 is a tad naked :D, that pic is from when she was right back from my engineer. Large grip, and EoTech/Elcan are on her now ;).


    I may just stick with the BDUs from Flecktarn... Like others in this thread, I'm tall and skinny, so sizing can be a pain - as only 'large' come in a 33" leg :(


    Just out of interest, are CF getting the Elcan SPECTRE issued as an update to your Elcans? *crosses fingers* :P

  9. Smoke>>


    Nice uniform, but in my opinion, gear needs to be more "bulky".


    I hear you mate. I know for the 'look', I need a lot more junk attached to me :D


    Thing is, my local site doesn't run long games - I don't even need water, just mags really.... So I'm loath to bulk up and sacrifice speed and agility, just to look better ;)


    Looking to get into longer, more indepth games. So I expect my rig to develop along with that.



  10. smoke what make of AUSCAM is that?


    Fingertwister is quite correct. It's the Stalker cut from Baseline Supplies.


    Unfortunately they can't ship them over the pond (according to their website), I would imagine it has something to do with legal issues with Crye? But that's a pure guess.


    Either way, I can honestly say they are the best designed piece of kit I have ever seen. Although in all fairness, I have yet to drool over the Gen2 Crye stuff.



  11. AB if you could feed back to WE that users are interested in buying fixed handle A2 style receivers that would be appreciated.


    Alternatively a HK416, HK417 or CAR15 style after market kits should sell quite well.








    Especially considering the fps on GG, and possible issues on 134a - A semi only HK417, or SR25 would be ideal, and even that would only be allowed at a handful of sites in the UK.


    But hey, a GBB, semi only SR25 would still be worth it! :)

  12. thats one sexy rifle, i wanna have one like this too! (i'll need to jot down the assaultrifle/rpd idea for my badguy loadout)


    Thanks bro :)


    The folding stock is really handy for when crawling around, or seeing as it's airsoft with no recoil - those tight CQB moments.


    I don't know if there is a real steel equivalent, so I've designated it the RPK 104 :lol:.

  13. Still got a long way to go but got to use it in a big event this weekend.


    Dboys RK-03

    RS Bipod / muzzle break / Cleaning Rod

    Custom Barrel Extension


    Fully redone Gear Box with Mosfet and M130 spring (445 FPS)

    590mm Mad Bull V2 barrel and H-hop nub




    Ah, that looks remarkably similar to mine;


    CYMA Ak 104

    SRC RPK front


    Built by Crash commander (I think he posts here occasionally), and also a beast - although not pushing anywhere near the same fps ;)

  14. and replace with a cyma one. How are those?



    For the money, excellent.


    The hop adjuster is a tad loose, but nothing a bit of tinkering won't fix.


    You'll probably need to downgrade the spring though, as they can be a bit 'warm' out of the box.


    I have the plastic bodied full stock, and the full metal side folder (which has got an RPK front end on), and enthuse about them at every possible chance :P.
