  1. Well, first time i've ever felt compelled to put down in words how happy I am with my find!




    These guys are a south African based retailer, dealing in all sorts of different cammo patterns, but specifically in harder to find, "nutria brown" gear, for those doing SADF or District 9 loadouts.


    Bit daunted at first, dealing with a site that sounded too good to be true... I was informed I might struggle to find 80's SADF uniform full stop! but to find them in my size, reasonably priced ect, sounded too good to be true! Emailed the owner, Albert, who responded same day, very friendly, very helpfull, order placed!


    Cost almost the same to ship as to buy a set of trousers and shirt, $100 all in (paypal!) but given the rarity, and the speed of delivery, i'm not bothered in the slightest! if parcel farce hadnt delayed in delivery, (arrived at Nottingham with them on thursday) I could have recieved within 5 days!


    Cant speak highly enough of this retailer, and would/will deffo be buying from him again! Hope this helps others looking for SADF gear.



  2. And personally, both mine and BigBC's comments only go to enforce your "fyi" for newbie's who think buying a cheapsoft copy of more expensive kit will still offer the same levels of protection, you yourself posed as the prime example of this.


    I see no smoke, nor a hint of flames. Neither do I see any of the comments going off topic, this could build to being quite an informative thread... if you would let it.

  3. your right fella, you can buy rated eye protection for around a fiver, most cover you to EN166-F1, fine for low force impact... which 500fps is not.


    Pay a little more, and go for the proper safety standards, ANSI, quoted from the Oakley website as they lay it down in simple terms


    "For the high-mass impact test of ANSI Z87.1, a 5-inch metal spike (17.6 ounces – more than a pound of weight) is dropped on the lens from a height of more than four feet."


    Now facing 500fps seems a little less daunting, would I buy copies? no, plinking, i'd prob use the screwfix goggles, skirmishing, esp cqb, I'll stick to my real McCoys ta very much. ;)

  4. nah, they wont clone it, if they would, you'd think they would have flooded the market with bfg clones by now, must be something to do with it being a pyro... dunno.


    Anyway, anyone wanting any more info on these, the only place you can buy em is here, and Phils the man to ask, he'll talk about them for hours if you let him! dont blame him though, its good to have pride in your creations!


    TLD GR20 Distraction Device (bang in a can!!!)

  5. nah, that fizz is over well before you toss it, these things are awesome! Mines a chrimbo prezzie, but Phil's quite happy to show off the nade to anyone interested, its a cracking bit of kit, beautifully made, solid as a rock, and so versitile, once you own the nade, refills are a bargin, and the options soon avalible will rock!


    Genuinely, this is probably the coolest peice of airsoft kit released this year! impressive, seeing as its a British born and bred product!




    And it does look the dogs danglies!

  6. If there is one, i'm sure 5 or 6 people will shoot me down in seconds, lol.


    How about an airsoft video section? I was going to post in the pics section, but I cant find a single pic of me, only me taking them! so I was going to post youtube clips of us skirmishing, but that thread clearly states pics only! again, sometimes it seems there are peeps out there clicking on the "new posts" button, preying on the unwary! ;)


    (and yes, I did search for video, over a thousand posts mention video, and I got bored at page 9! lol)
