  1. Looking for a Foliage rear MBUS (PTS or Magpul) in the unlikely event someone has a dusty old one knocking around.

      Turned out F-S still has 12 PTS ones in stock, lol.

  2. Anyone (UK) ordered from ehobby recently.  It's been a few years since I've used them and I'm wondering on the likelihood of getting clobbered by customs.  Not a RIF, small PEQ unit sized parcel.

      I use WGC since they have some special form boxes at checkout.. ehobby will fully comply with the law.  Obviously that still leaves a dice roll chance on whether customs bother with your package or not if the value is around the threshold.

  3. Marshall told me Thursday night that propane is going to break my 226E2.  That was a cool story.

      Really wasn't that hot under ground/surrounded by concrete and at night when this game was going on.  Don't think it was even 20 in reading that evening, not a struggle for the gun.

      There was a distinct undertone snark of 'fnar, you idiot' and airsofters talking bs based on myths they read on facebook grinds every single one of my gears, doubly so when it's entirely not correct in the context and said with an air of all-knowing arrogance.  I know some of the models don't handle it, but there's also lots of them that run the pressure absolutely fine as we're all aware, anyone who's done some reading would be.  First time I pulled out lipos at one site (years ago) some idiots lost their minds like I was a walking time bomb; the ignorance physically pains me with some people.

  6. Anyone remember the name of the first 'indie' game on steam? You played a robot being attached by robots pirates on a space station, had to go around the place fixing everything.

      lol, nah that's waaaaay newer. This was a proper 3D 3rd person game, no combat just puzzles. I had the bloody demo of it but I can't even find it on google now.

      So tempted to get one of the sets with the dinky G3-like elbow pads.

      Pretty sure they've been slowly dying on the vine for some time now, got that impression anyway. Flickr's been decent for me.

  11. The old Airbana map seems to have gone now. "oh we'll rely on facebook to publicise our site".. the *fruitcage* search on facebook is useless AF! When you don't play that often to keep up on what's closed and new places opening this is a PITA.

      I can't even access the list it seems, something about requesting to read it triggers an alert related to a firewall.

  12. Are ear lobe expanders, vape things, *suitcase* facial hair and hitler-youth haircuts just everywhere these days or is it the the crowd airsoft attracts? I live in a bubble.

      I don't know why I'm at all surprised realistically, we're all the misfits/non-conventionals/conformists/whatever you want to call it. Difference was a decade ago that just meant you were probably a proper, traditional nerd who hung his RIFs above his LOTR sword replicas.

  13. The moment when you realize you pay $80,000 for your education, and one of your professors quotes the Daily Mail in their powerpoint. *facepalm*

      The worst part was the quote was from the 'showbiz' section in an article talking about kanye's newest clothing line.

  14. In case anyone's not aware; US Army (so then probably everyone down the line) is moving from the M9 to the Sig P320. Fingers crossed for a nice Marui.

      Eugh.. please guys don't make me think about it.

  15. I am not going to be present at the Shot Show this year (almost was), but was wondering if we should start up a thread in general discussion for folks who do go to post? Also, a challenge for anyone going to find a Swiss SG 751 rifle. I doubt it would be shown since they don't plan to produce them for the US market. Basically the big brother of the 550 series.

      They're called flippers with the cards. Definitely not advertising anything as mild as strip clubs xD

      The internet in my room is that bad I can barely upload anything to social media, let alone do it twice for forum posting..

      Have to say, I fully expected/predicted the first two, partly because those were the things I was rooting for. That last one is a real shocker though.

  20. http://www.evike.com/products/68297/ "Built around the traditionally durable version 2 gearbox, the XR-5s relation to the M4 ends there." "The fire controls are similar to the favored M4 rifle." At least try to use something other than a m4 next time please.

      What's so bad about magazine and internal parts compatibility with by far the most common platform out there? It looks basically nothing like an AR on the outside.

  21. Anyone else keep a list of everything airsoft/kit related they buy?

    1. TheFull9

      TheFull9

      I don't actually note down prices paid, just items bought/things I need to get to finish a gun or rig etc. Then when they come in they get lined through.

  22. Over ten years I've been at this lark. Been selling and buying kit here and there for most of that time, been hiring skilled folks to get work done every now and then for a few years now. Not once have I had a problem and then when one does happen it's with someone I'd carefully researched, felt sure was above reproach. Just bloody enraging.

      Well yes, quite. I'll have to write the details in a thread at some point, but the guy in question has been on here a long time and had done good work for me once before which made it all the more unexpected.
