    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    So you can just use a 209, but also use that 209 to set off a bigger charge? More realistic than anything else I've seen admittedly. I'd defo stick to my x3 TRMR because it's more practical for skirmishes but this is obviously going for the real world training user. Or people who think airsoft is pretty much the real thing.
  2. We've had this thread in other guises before in other sections, but I feel that one in here General where you can post literally any guns/gear/parts/whatever tacticool shiz, makes more sense. For the participation levels we have here now, having the little content that gets posted as massively-split and widely distributed (vs condensed and concise) doesn't make any sense to my mind - exemplified by the fact we have so many archived picture threads. I won't be able to contribute regularly myself because my gear comes along like buses, but the idea is simple: when anything new shows up you snap it and post it, from a whole gun or plate carrier to a tiny accessory or part, maybe talk about how your current builds are going if you like or anything you have planned or in progress. Of course fancier shots of finished rigs/guns/loadouts can still go in those threads as well if so desired. To get the ball rolling, this lot is what I've acquired in the past 6 months or so.

    TM Glocks AWOL from WGC Shop

    Very annoying as WGC is basically the only airsoft shop I use and I hate ordering from multiple different places. Anyone seem non-licensed/unofficial Glocks disappear from other retailers?

    TM Glocks AWOL from WGC Shop

    I can get it, but with everything on here and other forums etc already that would be latching the gate after the proverbial horse.

    Sorry why are we not saying Glock, Colt (?) or Umarex in full on this forum?

    Wow.. inception of terrible business people.

    PTS licenced MAWL

    I've been involved in a little of the internal discussion, features like vis laser colour are nowhere near pinned down yet, very early days. I don't think they started any of the design process before acquiring the license so it'll be a long time before we see these I'd imagine. Prototype at SHOT maaaybe?

    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    Alpha-Tec was owned/run by that Keith (?) guy who's been famous over the years for many failed businesses that have taken peoples' money and run. I wanna say previous efforts were something to do with PTWs and an engraving business.

    LCT Conversion Kits, Where Did They Go?

    Weren't kits like that a remnant of the days of TM's original plastic AEGs being the only/primary option in the marketplace? Or at least from the times when the only metal guns were nasty pot metal CAs and ICSs (talking mainly AKs of course).

    So you're fitting the battery in that Sopmod Bravo somehow?

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    The company with the X-Site name stopped running games there a year or 2 ago. I played a game maybe 6 months prior to it closing just out of happenstance and it was really run down, a lot of the structures were unsafe and taped off. Whether that was through lack of any profit to be able to repair them or just not bothering/poorly managed I've no idea. Had to dig around a bit to find the info and it was confusing for a sec, but this different bunch is running that High Wycombe site at the time or writing it seems. Whether they're taking any better care of the place I don't know. https://www.facebook.com/skirmishwycombeairsoft/ The X-Site page changed their name to Sentinel and run the Outpost. https://www.facebook.com/SentinelAirsoftUK/

    I'm not taking a poke at anyone, but it's pretty simple, if you don't come on.. that's one less person. Not saying anyone 'has' to use the site either you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Quality Chargers?

    I've been using one of these guys for yonks now, ever since I switched over from nimh to lipo in fact: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/800ma-charger-for-2s-or-3s-7-4-11-1v-battery-packs-complete-with-mains-power-supply.html It works great, but obviously with no digital readout you don't get details on what's actually happening with your battery (I'll be buying a small capacity checker along with whatever charger I get). Being that I only play a few times a year it's proven extremely prudent that I get my lipos recharged up to an appropriate level given the long gaps inbetween uses. I've only look on component-shop thus far, of their offerings this seems like the right sort of option to fit my personal needs: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/accucel-6-digital-charger-with-5a-power-supply.html Just wondered what experiences the good folks of Arnies might have to offer (good quality 7.4v brand recommendations would also be welcome as an aside).

    Getting Back into Airsoft.

    In 3 years? I feel like at any given time in airsoft's existence 3 years isn't that much, stuff evolves very slightly but when you bear in mind a plastic legacy TM AEG is still more than perfectly usable to play the game it puts things in to perspective.

    £7.62 Gear Clearout

    Lot of stuff here I've had sitting for literally years, take it off my hands for actual peanuts (P&P included). The only caveat is it may take a good while (foprtnight tops) for me to get home to send thing,s but you're still getting a bargain so stop ya whinging. More pics and other gear that's not part of this sale all depicted here - https://flic.kr/s/aHsjPXJkHw Rasputin Item combat shirt, size small, worn once indoors. WAS roll-up dump, used twice, no damage. BFG old gen (pre helium whisper) double pistol TenSpeed in RG, used for a couple of indoor games. ATS M4 shingle, unused. FirstSpear double Sig226, pretty tight on most double stack, unused. 6/12 attachment system, might work on some laser cut PALS. G-Code/HSP single AR mag carrier, unused, with belt slide mount. Laylax (I think) shotgun sling, unused. 2 x HSGI RAMPs so you can get belt gear under your vest pouches, used once. SKD generic ball cap, worn once. 5.11 waterproof (yep, tested, don't ask me how but it is) cap. Looks unworn. TAG cap, FG, worn twice. Mission First back-up front iron, flimsy build but weighs literally nothing, unused. Any questions at all drop me a line.

    I've PM'd you mate, this is a dead thread at this point.

    Posting IMGs from Google Photos

    I get what you're saying, but as I say the long links work 100% fine on the other 2 forums which to me would tend to suggest the issue is more with this board. Example: https://airsoft-forums.uk/topic/7377-the-what-have-you-just-bought-thread/?do=findComment&comment=355912 I'm pretty confident I already tried using the Share/Get Link option in other threads here and various other users said they still weren't seeing anything, but here's a test just in case: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kSo3vE1WdGaod54J9 And using the type of site shown in the video: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0-rLzyQgOBinnL_seQQSzor0-OxpWqCdXsipcvXEkOKNhhYcK3hn7nMTk68c9_2yD7KL3K61yqNHVSXe4Uyoxkl3FmBhkOUA=w2400 Pasting either style of link in to the 'Insert Image from URL' under the 'Insert Other Media' drop-down in the bottom right of the post writing box just results in the text field flashing red at me when I click insert in to post. If I do the standard thing and Copy Image Address on GP then use said drop-down it appears to work on my end: I would presume you'll not see an image here ^ however.

    Posting IMGs from Google Photos

    I had to move from flickr after they switched their entire model, but it seems 99% of people here can't view any images I post that are hosted on my new account over at GP, so I pretty much can't post any pictures here anymore because tbh I'm not moving everything again or individually re-hosting each image I want to post. It does seem odd this issue had arisen, the GP hosting works perfectly fine ad one would expect over on AF-UK and DevTsix. Original issue highlighted: Test thread for reference: In that thread I personally can see the 1st image in the OP perfectly fine and also the image in the 2nd post, but the 2nd image in the 1st post is just a hyperlink.

    Hey no rush I get a really good value out of my ArniesAirsoft monthly subscription.

    Quality Chargers?

    Well, this has opened a surprising can of worms I have to say. Seemed like the imax would be the cheaper option, but if you google the b6 there's a youtube video you should come across going over differences between what are apparently the real ones and the chinese clones which appear to be incredibly common - every one I found on ebay UK appears to be a clone to the extent I can't even seem to find a real one for sale. hobbyking lists 2, with product pages for apparent real and clone options but the pictures of the supposed real one also appears to be the copy. Even the SkyRC website doesn't do sales and their 'where to buy' section is *fruitcage* useless with nothing but a link for potential dealers. Now I don't trust anything anymore, even though I'm not coming across anything to indicate there are many copies of the accucel out there. Probably go with stuff from component-shop, I feel they have good odds of only stocking legit stuff. Unrelated I know but the fact many legit stores ended up selling knock-off chinese CATs (because the fakes were so real looking) leaves me pretty paranoid these days.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Hold up, wasn't that the vaporware from aaaages ago (around the time of the Real Sword GBLS-style ARs) that was meant to stop firing on an empty mag using bog standard AEG mags?

    LCT EBB prototypes - MP5, SCAR H, M16, G3, CQBR

    Well dayum. Fair few people out there looking for that ideal blend of higher end/close-to-real externals with the functions of the TM NGRSs (me included) so yeah definitely appealing. Do the AKs stop firing when empty? I feel like they don't which would be the one thing to my mind holding these guns back from perhaps being the bestest thing ever on the electric rifle market (if they function reliably and shoot decently well). It's taken many years but I'm getting close to actually buying an airsoft MP5 now.

    To clarify, I do not have RS barrels or muzzle devices on any of my RIFs. Get back in your box MI5. That's right I see you.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    No that's fine, not trying to come aggressive here and if it reads that's way then my apologies. Personally, I'll use real stuff where I physically/legally can purely because I find that a fun element of a build, but I've tended towards the lightweight side of the spectrum for many years now on those RS parts, especially with rails, barrels, muzzle devices and other front end parts. If I can use a pot metal barrel that looks essentially the same as a steel one and is mostly covered anyway, but weighs a lot less, than that's my preference. Right now I'm fighting with a V7 Hyper Light M-LOK tube trying to get it on my Krytac LVOA - horrible tolerances on the barrel nut.
