    Looking for a good .30 BB to replace KWA brand

    I know they're rebranded. I want to say the OEM is BLS, but I'm not positive.

    I’m a fan of BLS. They’re hard enough to avoid getting chopped in my Echo 1 M240, which is quite a feat.

    Glove recommendations

    CamelBak Heat Grip gloves are ultra durable. I don't believe they come in fingerless, but that's nothing a pair of scissors and bit of stitching can't fix.

    DMR build ( help needed)

    SR25s use either V2 or V2.5 gearboxes, so you don't gain anything by moving away from a G3-based build. It's pretty simple dropping in a replacement reinforced/high end gearbox like Krytac, Avalon, or something similar, so I wouldn't worry about the rather dated concerns about V2 gearbox integrity.

    My gun wall is actually a retail display rack. I screwed the mount bases into studs in as many places as I could find. It's quite sturdy.

    G&P PEQ-2 shutting itself off

    I had a similar issue with both my G&P PEQ-2s. I'm not a wiring-savvy guy, so I didn't attempt to crack it open and fix it. From what I understand, some of the solder joints are weak, which leads to the intermittent contact you're experiencing. It's also possible that water made its way inside. I wish I had a fix for you. I ended up getting a separate weapon light and keeping the PEQ as a strictly aesthetic accessory. I never used the laser, so it was no great loss for my needs.

    Your Favorite Tokyo Marui Pistol (s)

    Good question. Hmmm... P226E2: #1 for reliability so far. It probably helps that I actually maintain it as I should. Original P226R: sold it after a few years of hard use. This is notable because I usually run handguns until they irreparably fail. Original M9: plastic fantastic and not great. The safety switches fell off. Mk23: legendary for a reason. Less of a sidearm, more of an alternate offensive weapon. G17: not very reliable, although that could be due to the previous owner's installation of a Shooter's Design aluminum slide. 1911 Foliage Warrior: was okay, but not great.

    Apologies for the double post. My editing window expired. @Skarclaw, here you go:

    It's less "WIP Mk48," more "stripped M249 with the wrong caliber of nutsack." I'll see if I can't snap a pic once I get off work.

    Several Questions regarding Inokatsu M60E3

    Might be a difference in production runs? I'm not really sure. Either way, one plunger does the job just fine, so no worries.

I'll take the compliment, though! That poor G&P M249 is waiting on Mk48 parts from Killen Custom, which I ordered (and paid in full) December of last year. I'm not sure if it's a viable project, since I can't seem to get the transplanted Krytac gearbox to cycle. I also have all the hard-to-find parts for a G3KA4 build sitting in a grocery bag, which was going to be my next build (off an LCT base). This coronavirus thing has really taken the wind out of my sails, so to speak. I don't know if or when I'll get around to starting those projects in earnest. Hell, I also have a half dozen Madbull 40mm shells that I was planning on retrofitting with hopup, but that's a whole different level than just assembling some parts. Combine that with my latest shiny new toy: ... and you have a lot of things competing for my time, attention, and limited disposable income. *EDIT* That jug is just 50% strength Gatorade. It's about a bajillion degrees here in Virginia, so I've gotta down one of those a day if I don't want to pee the same color.

    Show us your war room!

    This thread is for sharing pics of your war room, gun wall, gear hangers, or nasty pile of dirty uniforms. I'll go first. Gun wall, from left to right, top to bottom: TM M870, converted to British L74A1 TM M870, converted to UKSF-spec Remington 870 CA M249, converted to UKSF-spec L110A1 G&P M249, Mk48/Maximi conversion in progress Echo 1 M240, converted to British L7A2, with spare barrel VFC/Avalon MP5A5, with real Surefire foreend British Mk7 helmet with strap-mounted PVS21 shroud ACH helmet, with 3 hole PVS21 shroud ACH helmet, with 1 hole PVS21 shroud Krytac CRB, converted to UKSF-spec C8 CQB (circa 2010) Krytac CRB, converted to UKSF-spec C8 CQB (circa 2005) Krytac SPR, converted to UKSF-spec L119A1 SFW (circa 2002) G&P AR15-A2 with Krytac gearbox, set up as Diemaco C7 You can see a frightening amount of kit on the table below. Paraclete RAV, SOHPC, DPM ops vest, belt kit, NI chestrig, a smattering of Blackhawk, mid-2000s SAS black kit, etc... And a shot of the whole room. Yes, that is a giant whiteboard on the wall opposite the guns. I'm terrible at keeping track of which guns are working and which need maintenance, so I write it down as I go.

    Several Questions regarding Inokatsu M60E3

    Having only one trigger plunger isn't an issue. It's a fairly "dumb" component, so it isn't overly sensitive to deviation from factory specs.

    Several Questions regarding Inokatsu M60E3

    More often than not, excessive trigger pull weight is due to the trigger itself being misaligned during installation. You have to make sure both spring-loaded "plungers" are seated on their corresponding surfaces to get proper tension on the trigger. The springs can be replaced with those out of "clicky-type" pens if you want to soften the pull up a bit. I'm afraid I'm not much help beyond that. My old Ino Mk43 wasn't too fussy, with the notable exception of trying to reinstall the feed tube between the front and rear halves of the receiver during reassembly. They are great guns otherwise, and will serve you well. I sold mine after I hit my longevity milestone: $1500 worth of bbs through a $1500 gun.
  15. Nothing like 3 months without airsoft to make you take a hard look at your accrued pile of kit.

      I don't think I'm gonna sell anything, but I'm really second-guessing my LCT G3KA4 build. Right as my buddy is getting ready to send the ultra-rare B&T rail over, of course.
