    WE New SMG ?

    Yeah, those are cool, but we're talking about GBB version.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Prices of electronics went absolutely insane. I wanted to buy a Streamdeck, it turned out the prices went up by 25%. Someone asked about webcams, and those turned out to be not just twice as expensive, but mostly out of stock. Also, I need to buy a Glock. Turns out the grip dimensions on the APS NotGlock are so completely way out of wack that no amount of dremeling is going to sort it out. I also expected the brace to go all the way to my elbow, and I don't have particularly long hands... Nooope, it's shorter, apparently not to tempt people into using it as a stock.

    Fedex and their estimates. I was supposed to receive the Flux brace today. Turns out, it's still stuck in customs, CRW learned nothing, and my request to delay the delivery until Monday (when I'm sure to be home) turned out to be pointless.

    AAA Battery Problem please help

    Don't. Rechargeable batteries cost more and work longer than whatever "airsoft pistol that runs on AAA batteries" you bought.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    So I finally decided to order a Flux Brace for my NotGlock. Then I found them on AliExpress. Only 10% cheaper. I can overpay 10 quid or so, I think. So all in all, I managed to find them and place an order (on CRW) so that's a good thing.

    Airsoft sightings in Movies and TV shows thread 2

    Ahahahaha, guess what. I'm watching a The Division 2 livestream, and they included... APS UAR. Talk about highly realistic military simulation signed with Tom Clancy's name. The man's gotta be spinning in his grave.

    *fruitcage* *suitcase*. I just got feedback from Brussels regarding work stuff, and it turns out that somehow I was able to get three kinds of wrong results using pretty much the same set of IT tools. Don't ask me how it's possible, because I don't rightly *fruitcage* know.

    So I'm on the train home from a buddy's birthday party. Somehow a brand spanking new train partially funded by the EU takes twice the time to travel the other way while a rickety refurbished old POS needed 2,5 hours to get me there in the first place. Not to mention, the surroundings look like Tarkov.
  9. I'm thinking about replacing my JG SL8 carry handle dual optic with something from NCStar - ADO or GEN3 with an ACM flip-up dot sight. What's your take on those? I did hear a couple of horror stories regarding that brand, but I'm a sucker for the futuristic styling of those things.

    That was one bag, now think that the *fruitcage*ers not only settled on the back of the couch, but also in the junction box next to it and must have been there for some time. I had to toss the couch AND the armchairs. Didn't like'em anyways. The bad thing is, I gotta start putting money for a serious renovation together.

    Ugh, had to spend 120 quid on pest control and a hotel room to stay out of the apartment for the night. Because somehow, my flatmate's bed has been infested with bedbugs. That most probably crawled in from the apartment downstairs. I wanted to spend those 120 quid differently!

    VISM scopes are on Ebay with cheap global shipping. Too good to be true or what?

    I don't understand one thing: S&T M1903 all but evaporated from Hong Kong shops and turned up in EU shops with a 50% markup. This pretty much ruins my shopping plans.

    Airsoft Glock Flux Brace clone, stop the presses!

    And let me guess, all the lawyer-friendly NotGlocks from APS, KWA and whoever else are mostly Gen3 based?

    Airsoft Glock Flux Brace clone, stop the presses!

    Can you stop being an idiot? Titleist was a member of this forum, who was convicted of shipping ITAR-restricted firearms accessories without a "license". And while I can understand that particular piece of legislation covering secret squirrel Tier 1 milspec gear, I find restrictions on airsoft/airgun scopes or Bubba toys like the Flux Brace not only bonkers, but *badger*s. If even Brownell's can't, much less Evike, do you really think that the bureaucratic machine will yield to an even smaller company? Reality check, people. What we're seeing here is the Chinese gleefully undercutting the profits of small American companies with the tacit approval of the military-industrial complex American government. You can get a genuine milspec holographic sight without problems in this anus mundi, provided you have 'bout 600 quid to spend on it, and from a local store no less, but somehow, you cannot buy a $60 airsoft scope from an airsoft store in the US. A scope that would probably fail the first, best case maybe second test for military specifications and the only difference between it and dime-a-dozen Chinese you can order from Hong Kong or even AliExpress (so, China directly) is that it was designed and manufactured in the US. So while I can figuratively scream at Flux "HERE'S MY THREE HUNDRED BUCKS, TAKE IT, PLEASE!", neither of us is in position to do anything about it. This is called "arbitrary unavailability".
