  1. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    H&K Picture Thread

    (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..)
  18. H9 might end up quite an interesting collectable if the death of the RS kills the airsoft.

    Not ready for the AR picture thread yet, but just paid for some cerakote. Can't remember how many years it's been since I started working on this LM4 but I'm sure it'll all be over by Christmas...

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    I've done the outpost maybe 5-6 times over the years since what-was-xsite opened it. It's always fine, pushing in to a good rating with a solid bunch, the building itself however is pretty much just one wide corridor for the most part (with the usual plyboard walls), so unless they whole site is in play (not terribly common) there's nothing you can do in terms of getting around people using the different stories/shops like the mall it's just head-to-head all the time in the same cramped space. The games primarily using the outside are actually better to my mind and because it's not huge you're almost always in range unlike your typical woodland game. Good staff, I'd never tell anyone not to go, but it's not somewhere I'm ever like 'yeah let's go do that!'.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    Sounds like it has all the right things going for it to make for a good time, green would be the team I'd choose as well. As I say I'm not around to attend, but I hope some folks will post their reviews/experiences in here.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    I feel in limbo a bit atm, I split my time between camp near Reading and home in Middx, there's nowhere indoors right now within a good driving radius that many people seem to consistently be really happy with. Granted I'm only on forums not any of the FB groups so it's entirely possible there's chatter I'm missing. I've been to longmoor with work, not for bb fun, definitely high on the list but it seems multiple organisers run events there and I've no clue which is the recommend at the moment.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    Well.. how weird I just checked this thread a couple of hours ago after not looking at it for months lol. Saw another blokes' post about the place you mention over on AFUK, does sound pretty decent. Legion only have 1 battlesim between me getting back off this deployment and the end of the year, would've liked to do a night one but apparently the last time they did one of those more than half the participants didn't bring so much as a warm jacket for a night game in the cooler part of the year and quit a couple of hours in. Zed seem to be taking their sweet time to even announce anything which makes me wonder at this point, personally still hoping for some worthy replacement for the Mall and AA's Barracks.

    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.

    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?
