    That's awesome Kato. Shame the PPS is so low quality, but I love seeing this sort of work done on a gun and it's a rare thing in airsoft, so to my eye your pictures and the whole mindset and experience/reasoning behind what you're showing is all just fantastic. A quality, reliable semi-auto 12G that takes lots of RS parts with good availability of equally high quality shells is certainly something I dream of seeing on the market one day.
  2. That's 'cause it was a small waitrose, a big one will always have exactly what you want. You might not realise it before you go in there, but you will by the time you come out. Fact.

    Kryptek ballcaps

    Any cap with mesh is always gonna be my go-to head gear for skirmishing in most climates. Takes the real sting out of a head shot but lets out way more sweat than a standard cap. Surprised this style hasn't seen more widespread adoption to be honest.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Glad to hear that, I personally didn't have anything available though. I went for the V1 in 'Desert Dirt' which is actually a very, very shiny tan in person. Doesn't match the matt latté sort of paint on the upper at all, but I did buy the gun second hand and the ALG is one of the cheapest rails I've picked up, so I've stuck a black MOE stock and matching pistol grip on there and called it a... well not back-up.. but not one of my star players in the first team. Not conventionally pretty, but it is very, very light and extremely handy so good for actual skirmishing anyway.

    I don't know what you may have heard about me. But a *badgeress* cannot get a dollar out of me. That much I know.

    Well as I said, waiting on the muzzle device then I'll post the full rifle. Just a progress shot.

    VFC SR-16 upper re-threaded to proper RS specs. ALG Defense barrel nut installed along with the barrel and gas block/tube, all nice and straight and secure. Just need a new muzzle device to properly cover the inner (since it's slightly longer than the outer) and I can finally finish this build. It's taken ages since there was originally a VFC URX II on there which consisted of a primary barrel nut, the rail itself which screws on to the threads that are on the outside of said barrel nut, then another outer-barrel securing nut. All 3 parts were torqued to insane values way beyond what's needed for airsoft and while there's of course the proprietary tool available to remove the outer barrel nut I'd already paid someone to make a custom one before my G&P one arrived. Then the rail itself was a nightmare as I lacked a strap spanner. Finally the primary nut, while looking compatible with theG&P URX tool, was very much not. Had to use an AR castle nut tool in the end. Took a lot of improvisation to get the damn thing apart so as to switch to a new handguard. Should be worth it though, I've already test fitted the ALG V1 rail and it's beautifully ergonomic. Makes the rifle a true joy to shoulder compared to the URX.

    All the 80s/90s camos are making a serious come-back.

    I genuinely agree 100%, I'm the same and having spent some time looking at a cerakote colour sample key fob thingy there are without doubt differences in the actual texture, reflectiveness, depth etc between different shades and if you're having something like that done (which costs a fair bit) you'd absolutely want the best product to suit your preferences and the gun build you're constructing.

    I'm pretty sure that's space black actually. You can clearly tell it's not despair black and it's much too deep a black to be SAS-eyes black. Defence-contractor-soul black is also a far more rich and lustrous hue.

    Sun had gone in by this point, but earlier on in the day I really, really *fruitcage* wanted to jump in that horrible former-quarry water.
  12. If it's not a 'closed system' as it were and there's just one free end of webbing that's not stitched in and can be unraveled then you can chop it as short as you like. All the slings I've made myself over the years to be 1-to-2 point convertable have involved chopping up MS3s/4s and BFG Vickers slings to get the right length.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    I feel that single pink XTM doesn't serve any purpose at all but just "has" to be on there. Because. ETA - From the owners' standpoint ofc.
  15. If you go to 'Ignore' Preferences within My Settings there's a check box that can disable sigs, might be that. Here's what I fabricated a couple of years back based on something that someone else here pointed out Travis Haley used in his Pantaeo DVDs. At the time I'd been using a PTS MS2 for a while and by the end of a skirmish day it'd really start to bite in to my neck so that originally drove me to look for something better. http://arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/202062-new-from-remf-tactical-the-adaptable-solutions-sling/ I've updated the design since and used other slings and components but the basic principle is the same; a 1-to-2 point sling with quick adjust and a wide/padded section.
  16. The exact issue I came up against years ago that prompted me to start making my own slings (and to write the article linked in my sig). Usually HK Snaps have a circular hole in them which another snap fits right in to. In the pictures here they're covered by the elastic keepers but if one of those was pulled back you could make a 1 point.
  17. For UK manufacture with US materials that's a great price; good buy. It's taken a while for padded slings to start proliferating but I'm glad to see it's finally catching on a bit more. There are some more advanced designs out there, but companies this side of the pond to tend to lag a little behind overall; hardly the end of the world though, I'm nit-picking. Is it easy to quickly adjust from a patrolling to fighting position?

    I didn't wanna say hipster because that to me has a negative connotation and I think the picture is pretty awesome overall. The pure photographic skill on display is evident.

    I feel like this is the result you'd get from giving a RIF to a very successful artsy type person who works in media in NYC. The pose, expression and background are a total juxtaposition to the rifle.

    Soon as I saw that on imgur the other day I thought "yep, this will catch on", haha. Grey Ghost PC (presumably?) works much better than the old school armour carrier from the original.

    Remove the 100 post limit on sales threads

    Personally as things stand I don't see post count as a measure of contribution at all. There are member with more posts than me who've contributed *fruitcage* all in terms of quality content to this forum. Then there are people who might've put epic amounts of time, effort and money in to creating fantastic RIFs and loadouts, taken brilliant pictures and posted them in the pictures section and gotten nothing extra on their post count for it. IMHO, the system is quite broken right now.

    Remove the 100 post limit on sales threads

    Given the overall drop in traffic here, I'm still in favour of at least lowering the cap. Personally, if I'm selling an item I take the responsibility for that transaction. I check out anyone who messages me with enquiries to purchase and if they have zero feedback elsewhere or other history that denotes they're probably not a scumbag I say 'no thanks'. To imply it's somehow the fault of the forum for your transaction going badly is ridiculous and nonsensical at best; it's the scammer's fault. Simple as.

    Stark-Arms/VFC Glock 19

    Well, if the price is in Taiwanese Dollars (which is my totally uneducated guess) then that's around £90 or ~$140 before shipping etc. Which is basically the same as their other models. If I've got the currency wrong then obviously ignore my insane ramblings.

    Stark-Arms/VFC Glock 19

    Yeah I'm liking that. Probably won't be nearly as nice as a TM with an expensive slide/barrel/parts kit, probably still have a stock feeling trigger etc.. but then if it doesn't cost too much more than a normal Stark I'm fairly hopeful given the progress they've made. Comparing my old non-traded G17 to my Gen3 with trades to my Gen4, there's very clear and noticeable improvement each time.
