  1. It appears that Inforce has started shipping one of their new pistol lights. These new models look similar to the previous models but have aluminum bodies. The full-size model for 1911's & Glocks etc is now out. This new model is adjustable to 1913 and Glock rails. Just ordered one about an hour ago and got a e-mail from UPS that it will arrive tomorrow! (I will believe it when I see it. Even thought the manufacturer is located in Rhode Island which is about 20 miles from where I live. Price is a little over $170.00 but if you go on-line you will find a coupon code for 20% off.

    WE Hi-Power Mark III (finally coming)

    This is just so disappointing. I'm getting kind of "P.O'd" about this now. I mean, I'm hitting retirement age and I could die soon without ever getting one of the few pistols I've been waiting decades for to ever appear (lol-kind of). No working proper Hi-Power, no Welrod, no HK P7M13, no Grizzly, no Bren Ten, no Colt Combat Commander w/Wilson style sights, grip safety etc.. and no all metal Man From U.N.C.L.E. P-38 (that doesnt cost a freaking fortune). Was this too much to hope for? Too much to ask? Jeez Thank the Lord for the AAP-01 I guess, as I cradle one of my babies in my arms and a single tear runs down my face. The sun will rise tomorrow and it will be OK.

    Popular culture inspired collection and loadouts

    Just started making the list of the few movies that he is in and not in my collection. Have all the Bond films, The Longest Day, A Bridge Too Far, Zardoz (cough cough) and some others. I still remember my parents taking me to see You Only Live Twice at the cinema when it came out. Good times. Good actor. Will be missed. Nice PPK!

    Thats great news. Have you thought about getting the chromed version for your next one? I was always a big fan of the 2 toned Hi-Power look. I'd also like to know if thats a "brushed" or gloss chrome finish and you could help me out with that. I prefer brushed (lol). I am getting anxious about getting mine now.

    Threaded inner barrels

    P-38, ISSC M22 and I believe the Makarov do. At least on my P-38's and ISSC M22.
  8. I have been tuning up my relatively new Amoeba Striker 01 Gen 2 and it's been doing quite well. In the process of adding the shorter inner and outer barrel for more of a scout rifle look and to cut back on the overall long length of the rifle when fitted with a suppressor and a 450 spring for a bit more umph. I've been using Matrix BB's for several years (,20, .23, .25 and .30's) with generally very good results. However, yesterday I found a partial bag of KWA Perfect .30 BB's that I had bought many years ago when they were available locally. So I gave them a try. Simply said it was a rather good improvement. Nearly dead center on my new 8 inch steel plate target at 90 feet with no scope adjustment needed. On a huge pine tree, about 20+ feet further into the woods, I was putting them into a knot hole, about the same diameter as the steel plate, after adjusting for the elevation (about 10 feet higher than the steel plate) and BB drop at that range due to limited power of the factory spring, I was hitting at a similar rate as I was getting on the steel plate. Naturally, I try to look up and re-supply and it appears ,20 and ,30's are no longer available anywhere. I did manage to find several bags of .25's and snatched them up. So, I am looking for a similar quality replacement for the KWA .30 BB's and if anyone knows of one (or more) it's you fellow shooters out there. Thanks from this old aspiring sniper.

    WE Hi-Power Mark III (finally coming)

    It's going to look sweet. I'm on hold with ordering mine as I have not gotten over my present "love affair" with the Action Army AAP-01 and just ordered more stuff for them. Keep us up to date with how its working out for you.
  10. I was checking out the Arnies Supporters sites listed on the main page and it came up as Domain Seized by US Treasury Dept. I then went to their website itself and there is no such warning. Has anyone else noticed this and/or knows about this?

    Threaded inner barrels

    Yes, this has always been a nice feature of the WE pistols. The suppressor on the Mk III should be a good look.

    ouch..but they still did a outstanding job and they will be used again!

    WE Hi-Power Mark III (finally coming)

    Airsoft World Ltd in England was just terrific. I had ordered 2 AAP-01's from a supplier in the USA. However, they didnt have any of the up-grades. Just by chance I found the Airsoft World site and they seemed to have a "boat load" of what I was looking for. I placed the order and it was delivered overseas, in I believe, less than 10 days and arrived in before the pistols! I just checked there site a moment ago and they have some new goodies for these pistols that I might have to consider. I'll have get back to you on the Canadian outfit.
  14. I'm thinking of getting a bag of 4 or 5 of these suggestions you shooters have given me and then blast away for a weekend or two and see how they shape up. I think I found another 20 feet of range by shooting out of the bathroom window. It also solves "other issues" that I might have to deal with as this is going to take awhile and I like my coffee. Wife is really thrilled. I told her its a science thing. She's not buying it but she loves me. Overall, I think I will have about 130-140 feet of open ground now.

    If you can, let us know when they verify processing and shipment. I've not had overly wonderful luck with overseas purchases over the last 2 months. Although I found a wonderful site in England that shipped some gear to me super quick and a Canadian firm that also came through for me.

    Action Army Ruger MK IV GBB pistol

    Folding Stock arrived and installed in less than 10 minutes. Some things to remember during and after the installation: (naturally there are no instructions) 1.) The screw that comes holding the upper rail on the folding stock is longer than the screws that hold the original fiber optic sight to the pistol. Do not mix them up as, if the longer screw is used when you secure the stock to the pistol,(where the original fiber optic rear sight was), you will in fact lock the bolt closed and possibly damage the bolt should you try cocking the pistol. 2.) With the stock attached, you no longer have the ability to "break open" the pistol. You must remove the upper rail piece in order to do that. Not overly convenient, but not a game changer. 3.) Wonder of wonders, if you keep the standard outer barrel w/rail on the pistol or replace it with the "short threaded barrel adapter" and apply a suppressor or tracer unit that is no longer than the original outer barrel, the pistol with the stock attached, fits perfectly in the UM84 holster (with the holster cover flap removed) nice and tight. It is easy to insert and remove the pistol as the folded stock appears to provide enough friction to keep the pistol totally secure. There is no movement of the pistol when in the holster. Even when forcibly shaken while upside down. Makes it a good choice for a sniper secondary. 4.) Installed a Micro-Red Dot on the stocks short rail. I'm working on a way to install some secondary fixed sights that will still allow the use of the holster. 5.) The stock itself appears to be a very solid piece of gear. It is quick to get into action and then collapse for re-holstering. Extending and collapsing the length of the stock is also easy and secure. 6.) With the stock attached you will lose access to the slide release on the right side of the pistol. Again, not a game changer. Hope this has been helpful.
  17. Now that I finally have the rifle set up as I like, the only thing I need now is a quality 2 Point Sling. Being a padded variety would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.
  18. Whats the scoop regarding Novritsch BB's?
  19. Wingman

    WE Hi-Power Mark III (finally coming)

    Thats great news. Just checked website and it says "in stock" for both the silver and black models..interesting that they show the hop-up as "fixed", but I dont care at this point.

    gbb pistol question

    You should be fine.

    Action Army Ruger MK IV GBB pistol

    Have put over 500 BB's through one of my AAP-01 pistols and it is still running like a champ with no issues to speak of. The Folding Stock is to arrive next week and then I think I'm pretty much done with the add on options. However, I have also added a Inforce Wild 2 light. I did find that the pistol, with lower rail attached (but nothing on the rail) fits very nicely in a Galco A18 leather and lined holster that I used for many years when I was carrying my G17 real steel pistol (now using a kydex). Does not work with the upper rail attached. The open end of the holster allows the longer barrel to protrude but still holds the pistol quite tightly. Not perfect, but it will do for now.

    New Inforce Pistol Light

    This is late, but the Wild 2 light did arrive. All aluminium construction, which should make it much more robust then the original versions (which I still like). A little wider and longer also. But not by much. This is definitely for the full sized pistols. The Wild 1 will be for the more compact pistols but wont be out until possibly December. It is very well made and has some new features (like the battery department and on/off toggle switches that are supposed to have made it more water proof. As far as illumination goes, it certainly does the job. I tried it out in the backyard at around 11pm and at 1000 lumen, the brightness and range is a major improvement. It penetrated deep into the heavy woods behind my house. Far surpasses my TLR-1. It fit just fine on my G17's, P225 Mk 25, TM M45A1 (as with all my other 1911's with rails) and is currently attached to one of my AAP-01 pistols (looks good too). Naturally this means another holster issue, but I think I'm going to finally break down and get the Matrix or Condor adaptable holster until something better comes along. A very nice light in my opinion.
  23. Thanks for reply's and it's good to see that the selection of quality BB's is better than I had thought.
  24. Finished the work on the rifle, with the exception of the 450 spring. I did add a small forward grip (M-Lok) and the Wheel style Hop-up adjustment screw. Much more compact with the muzzle break and even with the long suppressor added it's a bit shorter than the full length barrel and muzzle break. Still shooting as it was before, which surprised me considering the shorter barrel. Thankfully, those video's by Bespoke Airsoft are done so well. Made the job considerably easier. Thanks for the info on the higher weight bb's and I'm going to give them a try. I'm not sure if I will be able to dial down the hop-up to work well with the .20's when I put in the new spring, but I'm certainly going to give it a try as well.

    A Sniper Sidearm..your picks

    The AAP 01 wont fit in the UM84 holster if I use it with the retaining flap. However, it might work if I replace the flap with the adjustable thumb snap unit. Think they are still available and I like the way the holster really holds onto and protects the pistol from getting knocked around and scratched up.
