    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.

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

    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.

    Been playing about 13 years, only ever hit an AR replica barrel in to anything firmly one time, was Dytac pot metal and it showed zero sign of damage. You're welcome to use what you like that's fine, but this is airsoft you can play as hard or as easy as you like. I'll take the lightweight option seeing as I don't play much and I tend to just not bash my guns in to things when I do play, same way I treat my issued rifle.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Add a load of weight in perhaps the worst place to add weight as far as it relates to affect on handling? For essentially zero gain both practically and aesthetically? Not personally my cup of tea thanks, I infinitely prefer the standard pot metal barrels, especially given you basically can't see 80%+ of the barrel with most builds using modern handguard configurations.

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    Problem is of course that the immediate gratification of FB stuff stole traffic from the forums, but now the FB groups are getting cut and there an awful lot of people for whom facebook literally is the whole internet. The new social media giants are not friendly to anything that looks like a gun, but everyone is on their platforms, bit of a quandry. I hear discord mentioned somewhat often but I've never been on to it really. I think the thing with YT/FB/IG is an pretty large portion of airsofters only seem interested in following 'celebrities' and what they post and none of those people are on forums or actually active anywhere outside of their own personal pages/accounts. With a forum you just had a bunch of people talking who were basically all on equal footing; sure you'd have the folks with fancy stuff and a lot of posts who'd perhaps garner a little more attention than others but there was no great disparity I wouldn't say. Now you've either got 50k+ followers and you only hang out with other celebrities, or you're at the bottom of the pile looking up and wishing you got free *suitcase* all the time to post about (generalising obviously) and that creates a fair old disparity.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    I'll be honest, that 3% zombie outbreak picatinny-bayonet looking Fortis handguard was not lighting my fire, but the PTS is a great shout. I'm hoping to have a very similar forend setup with a dual switch when I eventually get around to acquiring an IR laser. All the scalarworks stuff looks sweet as well. Presume you're putting lipos in the CTR pad?

    If this one doesn't work I'm gonna have to ask Arnie to try and fix it.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    @MRF Good of you to say. I know we had a thread on that topic in general discussion some time ago. If you dig around enough you can make a regular AEG something quite realistic though I think this thread shows it's seemingly easier with a GHK and the stuff available for PTW is pretty crazy (granted I'm mostly in to gear so I don't know the best places to dig around for such things). It's a fairly old Avalon gun yeah, possibly one of the first that had that brand name and they went over to fictional trades almost immediately after making it. I think legally/functionally I got on everything real that I could (so basically just handguard, stock, optic and pic/m-lok accessories) and the end result handles nicely all things considered.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    *fruitcage* sake Honestly, after flickr said they're limiting storage space I spent more time than I want to think about moving over about 1500 files and putting them alllll back in to various albums and reorganising; and this was only about a fortnight ago. I think I might have a small breakdown if I have to do the entire thing *fruitcage* again. Put these on imgur. Working? eta - Google Pics seems to work 100% over on AF-UK and the crop tool on imgur is garbage, so I'm banging my head on the table over here as to why something this simple is so hard when bloody photobucket used to work fine back in the way (before it went down the drain).

    Got 2 of these Avalon BCMs years back, this one had a Centurion C4 on it a while back but that was replaced by this MK14 as soon as physically possible (which still took years ha).

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Yeah weirdly I see it in chrome but not IE.. is this *insert current year* or what?? Edit button is gone now and I don't wanna double post. I just switched over from flickr to google photos a couple of weeks back on account of flickr rolling way back on their storage limits and google isn't very well setup at all for forums it seems. Though the same image posted the same way worked over on AF-UK. https://photos.app.goo.gl/cSWZmmC1tzQveabF7

    Pics of your Gear

    What was old is new then old and then new and newer again and again etc. I wear a belt and a small pack for weekend events, same kinda thing I did in basic training really. I'm always surprised it's not the more population option for long games because PCs are at interfacing with a pack and/or carrying any amount of sustainment kit. It's a shame they seem to have discontinued that harness because it looks awesome, if I had the room to keep it I'd have snapped one up ages ago. Vel Sys are doing a couple of things in similar vein atm, don't really rate a lot of their stuff though myself. That pack you have is a good example of doing something niche in modern materials/patterns that fills a gap in the market though.

    Last 5 months or so of stuff. Though not pictured is a new pad set for the ops-core, KAC rail panels and a bag full o' patches.
  19. My bookmark for this forum (and all others) has always taken me straight to the 'Threads I've posted In' (or words to that effect) but something seems iffy. I get different results with the same URL/Settings in the activity stream setting inbetween my desktop on base and my laptop back home. It's been saying 'The search index is currently processing.' ever since the recent down time and I only see maybe 1 or 2 threads I've posted in; the only ones appearing are ones I've posted in since the update too. I also very much miss the BB code view as I can't seem to stop this blue background, only change the actual text colour.

    Content I Posted In

    Knew about the loading more, but I changed the date drop down to 'any time' but it'll only show the last year for me personally. Also only shows content I started if I use the My Activity Streams drop down, if I change criteria within my normal 'threads I've posted in' (over to content I started) then it still just shows threads I've posted in rather than ones I've started.

    Content I Posted In

    No idea if my saved url will work - https://arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/discover/content-posted/&stream_club_select=undefined&stream_club_filter=undefined It's 'Content I posted in', though I may have jumped the gun a tad as if I use the actual 'my activity streams' drop down I can find threads I've started. Doesn't go back very far though, only about 18 months ish.

    Yeah I knew it's GHK and has the real threads back there but I was meaning acquisition instead of fitment.

    My current 'system' for gear, for those who like modularity. Pretty much any common mag type, PC or chest rig, seconds to change it all around.

    Picture Quoting

    Unless there's a setting on the user end (which would seem odd to me) it's looking like a post full of pictures will be FULLY displayed when quoted/re-posted by someone else. If there's any way we could go back to removing the images or tags by default when quoting that'd be generally better I'm sure. Pretty certain that's how it worked previously?
