    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Couple of little bits not pictured, but overall some good acquisitions while I was deployed.

    DAS AK Series by GBLS in 2020

    I've considered buying an AK many times and that setup is almost exactly what I'd work towards in terms of modification. I feel like they'd do a lot better trying to increase production volume and bring down the price/add more variants to the AR line though.

    Posting IMGs from Google Photos

    I'm on chrome on my laptop and wingmann's most recent image in that thread doesn't show either, so I don't think it's the same problem.

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Ok.. to be unequivocally unambiguous, yes the intention was any posts here must contain imagery of items that a person has recently obtained. It's obviously pretty pointless just writing a bullet pointed list of items that exist and you say you have bought, that's not content that is worth forum goers' time.

    AR AEG Scratch Build

    On the one hand it talks like he knows a lot, but having met him quite a few times he doesn't even vaguely give me the professional vibe of a person with attention to detail that I'm looking for (how many times do you actually need to say *Ubar* in a video?). I'd be a tad dubious I'll be honest. Sounds like the sort of thing I'd had in mind, any specific reason for the G&P shell specifically? Are Wolf better these days in general? I've seen a lot of spotty reports on SHS, not really what I'd intended to use truth be told. Any specific recommendations on the electronics front?

    Who’s MP5is the nicest?

    Hopefully there is an depth review written somewhere online on the Avalons, though given the death of forums and most FB groups being Closed/Secret it's not terribly likely. AFAIK the VFC/Avalon MOSFETs are their own thing as with most fets that come in a gun, that's only a guesstimate though. One YT 'review' claims the guns in question are RS spec externally and does show a real handguard fitted to add weight to that argument, though I think given the tolerances in question you've probably got more chance fitting a real handguard than stock given the tight fitting of the stock caps on MP5s. If real stocks work though there are many options out there, though strangely the real MP5k has even more options and adapters than the MP5. Not too surprising, doesn't fill me with confidence with regard the LCT. The AKs seem to sound nice, probably feel decent to shoot and cycle the action, but I wouldn't bet too much on the long term reliability and I doubt the semi response will be stellar, though happy to be proved wrong when they release their offering of course. If it stopped on empty I think I'd wait quite happily, but I've not heard of them planning to do that which leaves the choice a bit more open ended.

    Various, the guns I'm talking about are Avalon as I say (VFC), take a look at some of the product listings and reviews you'll find out plenty of info.

    Jet DesertFox rates the selectors on the EF 'Elite' model in his review, doesn't look like he's lying far as I could tell.

    Who’s MP5is the nicest?

    I nearly posted the exact same topic the same day you did GW. According to the product descriptions of the EF/Avalon brand AEGs that are offered on Evike and AirsoftGI (around $350) they have stamped steel uppers and nylon lowers. In an effort to cross-reference and confirm that I've watched a few video 'reviews' however all the ones I've found so far are made by people who clearly want to cater to the lowest common denominator and provide SWEET FA in terms of actual detail about the materials and internal specs. I'd imagine the LCT externals will tick the right boxes for us more discriminating buyers, no idea if they'll bother with a MOSFET or generally with internals that'll have the crisp response in semi that most people are probably looking for when when they plan to use these things indoors.

    AR AEG Scratch Build

    So I picked up a set of the G&P 'Deluxe' receivers (Magpul lower) some years ago, which were damn pricey on initial release and are some of the few real, quality aluminium receivers made for AEGs; presumably CNC rather than forged. Also have a really nice Erathr3 M-LOK handguard to go on the front and a proper PTS pistol grip from the golden era where they had the actual Magpul logos on (rather than the earlier generic texture surface) that I think only got made for a short while before the license was pulled. That's all I've got so far though and I've long been meaning to make these in to an example of a sort of old-school example of a premium AEG that would've been the thing many people aimed for before TM recoils and the more commonplace functional GBBR (let alone GBLS and remote-air guns). I don't even know where to set a budget for internals as I want to basically get someone to build me a really excellent all around performer, highly reliable and snappy with no chance of lock-ups on semi but I don't take nearly as much of an interest in RIFs as I do in kit. I'd like to think given the proliferation of MOSFETs that wouldn't be such a big ask these days, but I don't know of a better place to ask for advice than here and frankly I doubt there is one. The basic premise is not quite going to the level of Siegetek gears, but probably Prometheus kinda level for internal parts. I know I've seen some gearboxes out there with built-in hops that looked very nice, can't remember the brand name but they do fancy triggers, selectors and fake mag-releases etc in many colours of anodisation. So yeah, recommendations for parts and/or highly skilled, knowledgeable, reliable and trust-worthy techs in this field very much welcome. Also any hints on quality AEG parts like buffer tubes and outer barrels. I'd be somewhat surprised if any actually exist that are at all better than what every standard manufacturer slaps on their guns, but I figured it's best to ask on the slim chance some niche Japanese website offers a higher quality part. This is something I've been planning for years and will be investing in to significantly in terms of cost an effort so all good info is appreciated and will be put to use.

    Non-Hanging Slings

    A padded 2 point sounds like it might be the way to go, though I'm not sure exactly what you have right now. I've been using BFG Vickers for years, never had any complaints. Magpul padded MS1 is very nice too. Not tried the Ferro slingster but a lot of folks seem to enjoy it; there's tons of options in the same category really.

    For some reason I can't stop the bell ringing even though the PM button literally right next to it shows I have a new message in my inbox. Turning off the bell notification of a new PM is disabled by admin apparently, any chance of changing that please?

    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    Heck even TAGs have got some adoption and a reasonable standing amongst the community, long as you don't market your new widget as the Pain Dealer 6000 'It Really *fruitcage*s The Other Guy!' like AI did with the duck-moscart you're usually alright within reason.

    (I dunno if that's what you were actually going for, just something that came to mind. I think the Russian side had that camo as an unlock too.. maybe..)
