  1. Has anyone had any experience of fitting grips intended for Replica Lugers onto an airsoft one? I took the grips off my Tanaka and they look quite different inside to the wood grips available, but that may not mean the wood grips will or could be made to fit. Anyone attempted it and what level of work was required if it was possible? Cheers.
  2. If anyone's interested in nostalgia, I've just rehosted JustPistols. You can find it at http://justpistols.epizy.com Apologies for typos/broken links/etc/etc/etc... Cheers.

  4. I pop in now and then, but things seem pretty quiet. I still have most of my collection, but being a 'Chairsofter', none of it's been out of a box in 5 years+ - Chances are all the seals are buggered and they're just a load of paperweights now. I was inspired in my early days by DumboRAT, with his fantastic reviews and amazing knowledge. but I'm not sure he was an Arnie's regular. I recall he was a surgeon in training, so I guess that's what he does these days. Nice to see Garry still around (one of the few people I met in person in the airsoft world, along with some of the

  6. Not been around for ages, but I had to read such an informed and detailed review of the 712, being one of my favourite handguns. Great comparison to the real thing, which it stands up to remarkably well, I think. A real shame that the VCR act killed airsoft collecting, I'd have had one of these for sure! Thanks for taking the time, great review! Cheers!
  7. Maybe not quite so limited as Tanaka (with some special finishes), but Marushin do tend to release in very widely spaced batches - It might be years before another batch of a specific Marushin model gets released. Tanaka tend to do the same thing, although often with different surface finishes. Of the Japanese makers, only TM (and KSC to a degree) seem to have a continuous production of their range. M.
  8. Tanaka guns seem to vary a lot with versions. Many hate their SIG P226, but I'd say mine is one of the very best GBBs I've ever handled (it's a Heavyweight) - most of the haters have the standard ABS one. I'd vote for the TK amongst USPs, but the KSC one was good even before S7. On the other hand, the Tanaka Hi-Power looks good and is a nice replication, but it's not accurate and always feels a bit fragile to me. Cheers.
  9. And, oh Tanaka HP owner, do the WE mags fit the Tanakas? I've been after a second mag for my Tanaka for years! Cheers
  10. Top speed is much harder than 0-60 time to improve, because you're fighting air pressure. I don't imagine you'd get it anywhere near 170 without an awful lot more power that would need more than a remap. Even the 15 MPH over the tested limited (all the independent tests seem to get around 135 too) even with a tail wind seems a lot. Still 135's hardly shabby. Cheers.
  11. Cool review - Nice to see a springer get a proper review! Some photos would be good. Cheers
  12. Lexus reckon 135 MPH top speed, so you shouldn't see much more than 143 on the speedo. Cheers.
  13. Thanks my_plague_66 :)
