  1. Sadly, the gearbox on my own PDW has decided to give up the the ghost, and now that I am getting ready to do a major replacement I am wondering if there are anythings I need to bear in mind when selecting a box. I'm toying with a Systema Revolution but, not being a tech-head, I'm open to any and all advice any owner might have.
  2. What with all the back and forth, this has been a bit of a downer for me, but I am grateful to the lads for the take-down, review and so on for saving me the money...
  3. You never know when you are going to get peckish, obviously.
  4. I've been looking for a lighter platform, since I suffered an arm injury last year - even my Recce Rifle was a bit over the top. Even with the metal receiver, this little beauty is light as a feather fully loaded and still, once the innards had been tweaked, gives me all the range I want (which is easy when all guns are restricted to 1 joule by law).
  5. I don't know about the actual numbers, I am afraid. I all know from the local distributor is that more or less everyone - even the majors - had their initial allocations pruned. Not uncommon, I know, but this has caused a flap in the retailer press - hence the mutterings about hype. I'm also hearing Mid Feb for a second lot, but again, this is based on nothing more concrete than a reading of retailer news sheets, not Marui releases. I'm way out in the woods and not well informed. Tokyo/Osaka peeps might know more.
  6. I would not worry too much. The first batch appears to have been unusually small - though whether it was down to that hiccup in production or a desire to create a little hype is neither here nor there - and the n2nd lot will be here soon enough. Our local shop got three and they vanished before the boxes hit the shelves. Though I missed out, one of my students did not. The little chap stood in the snow from 6am-11am on sale day to ensure his pick.... It is lovely, inside and out. Shoots very well and I'll certainly be digging into the second lot. Edit: Anyone down Tokyo way had h
  7. You have to keep in mind that I give not one fruitcage.... The power of awesome bears me up and makes me strong. I'm no soft lad. I might have been living the good life here, but I'm still a Sheffield lad, and that means Beef on Iron..... It is a bit of a weight, but when I am using it as a backup, I only have one spare mag with me, and the launcher primary is a featherweight itself. She's such a beauty. The extra poundage is worth the cool factor.
  8. That depends on the person. I like to carry it in companion to my launcher, as I find it fits very nicely down my right side on it's one-point. I could use my MP7A1, or my MAC10, or MP5K for a lighter load, but nah...... Folded up, the size is not an issue even with the longer mag, and while the weight is up there, it's not a major matter. Edit: Though, in fairness to Bankz, I never take it out with my L96, as I want something super-compact as a marksman's backup (usually my G18 or MP7)
  9. BBQs are never off topic! I use propane. There are no real issues with the gas here, it is just that the JP-LPG laws are a little odd (and rather unevenly levelled as each prefecture - sometimes each ward - can have their own zoning regulations for the use of Propane). Out in the country in Akita, as a non-agricultural/non-industrial client, I can not have more than 5kg at any one time (and only for external use). HOWEVER, my landlord's agricultural use liscence (the family rents a farm building) means that we have a 25kg can sat outside the kitchen, fueling not just the BBQ but the range
  10. Hard to get? I suppose that depends on your location and your relationship to local LP suppliers. Out in the sticks, we have a couple of lads who use propane, and buy it openly and with the knowledge of the LPGA. Still, I don't make the switch as the missus still thinks propane filled mags = dynamite.
  11. I don't know where you get that idea. I've had no trouble with 134a in mine. I'm not a full auto nutter, as I don't have many mags yet (and I only play in the warm, in one way or another), but I've not had a single issue so far. Personal experiences may differ mind you...
