  1. Nothing like 3 months without airsoft to make you take a hard look at your accrued pile of kit.

    Does anyone sell Lipo Ready AEP's ?

    I haven't done anything fancy to my Cyma Glock's electrical system and it seems to be running okay. Granted, it doesn't really see a terrible lot of use, so take my experience with a few grains of salt. I use an adapter like this: https://www.evike.com/products/65998/ Unfortunately, I was unable to find one in stock on Evike's site.

    Classic army g3

    I have seen these magazine fitment issues with the LCT G3 firsthand. There seems to be some problem with the magazines failing to lock in after extended use. After fiddling with the pair of LCT G3s (and accompanying magazines) at my local shop, I'm fairly confident that the magazines are at fault. One magazine won't lock into either rifle, while the other mag locks into both rifles without issue. I'm planning on buying my complement of mags locally so I can return them in case of any drama.

    UKSF Impressions: redux

    Dunno if there's much sense in doing this, as most forums appear to be going the way of the dinosaur. Pity, really. I regularly reference this site for obscure technical information and reviews. Sob story over. Show off your kits! Attached are a couple pics of my most recently completed kit, an early/mid-2000s era CRW kit ("black kit").

    Classic army g3

    My local shop had to return their entire shipment of CA G3s due to external issues. Namely, they fell apart in transit. I personally wouldn’t touch one with someone else’s 10 foot pole. If you want to trust the structural integrity of your rifle, I would recommend saving up for the LCT. That’s my plan.

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    I’m sure you’ll do just fine. Don’t stress and enjoy yourself! Hopefully you’ll leave the field remembering why you started this hobby in the first place.

    wot am best SUSAT?

    Apologies for the double post, but I believe I found something of interest. A replica Shield RMS for a fair bit less than the real deal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RMS-Reflex-Mini-Red-Dot-Sight-Scope-with-Ventilated-Mounting-For-Airsoft-Glock/202659531247?var=502739116368

    wot am best SUSAT?

    As the title says, I'm looking for a good quality replica SUSAT. I've gotten spoiled by the clarity and durability of G&P ACOGs, so I'm looking for similar qualities in a SUSAT. The following companies manufacture replicas: G&G Ares (pretty hard to find nowadays) WE (seemingly re-labeled as ACM) Non-specific ACM company Does anyone have feedback on any of these models?

    Well that’s interesting. I’m not to keen on testing it myself, but I do have an email in to Shield regarding their warranty coverage for US customers.

    And this is why I'm thinking of throwing down nearly twice the money for the G&G.

    wot am best SUSAT?

    I’ve been using ACOGs for over a decade now. Poor eye relief doesn’t bother me. Semi-related: does anyone know if a replica Shield red dot/J-Point exists? Looks like the Shield SUSAT wing mount (pictured above) uses a different bolt pattern than the commonplace Docter and RMR mini dots. I’d rather not splash out for a real optic, especially considering the likelihood of it getting shot out.

    I know what you meant, but I still laughed. Did any parts fall off it for no reason?
  13. ardrummer292

    wot am best SUSAT?

    I'm in no rush. I've got loads of other work to do to my Minimi before it's ready for a fancy new optics package. Just let me know when you plan on coming out and I'll make sure I'm there as well. Oh, and thank you! Aye, this is what "community" looks like.

    wot am best SUSAT?

    Good feedback, thanks! I mean, if you're okay with that, I'd be immensely grateful. When do you reckon you'll be out next?
  15. ardrummer292

    wot am best SUSAT?

    Yep, spot on. This will be going on a L110 Minimi built up to early Iraq spec, a la SFSG in TF Black. The very tail end of its service. Ref photo of my desired setup is attached. \ "Enthusiastic" about UK kit... that's an interesting way to put it. Doing any sort of US SF/SOF kit whilst living/playing in SEALtown USA (as I do) means you have a good chance of running into dudes who are in your kit reference pics, whether they're dropping their kids off to play or participating in games themselves. Figure it's a bit odd for a team fella to see his old armor carrier worn by some sweaty nerd, so I opted for a less "local" kit.

    Waitasecond... that isn’t my avatar. hey siri how do i report hacking /offtopic Finally found a review. No useful comparison between the G&G and any other brand, but it’s a start. http://hotelcharlieairsoft.blogspot.com/p/g-susat-review.html?m=1

    Aye, it was intentional. No harm intended, NonEx. Thanks for the feedback, TheFull9. I’d be okay with getting a real one if it didn’t mean shelling out absurd money, but that seems to be the case. Found a couple for sale around 400 USD, which is about twice my budget.

    Perhaps the most insightful chunk of text I've read on this website. I do take slight issue with the assumption that only ex-mil folk will push themselves past the "plateau" you mention. I'm ex-mil and have civvy friends who are right there with me. Aside from that minor niggle, you are 100% spot on.

    Select fire conversion for M249

    Has anyone managed to add semi-auto functionality to their M249? I'd love to have the option to roll into the back of the stack after providing suppression.

    Apologies for the quadruple-post, but I feel that this video clearly illustrates the benefits (and limitations) of this mod.

    Select fire conversion for M249

    Received and installed my Burst Wizard 3 today. My thoughts... Hard-wired installation is a snap, especially with the dual signal wires included. My Minimi was already wired for a Gate WARFET, so the extent of my "hard-wired installation" was unplugging the WARFET and plugging in the Burst Wizard. Absolutely brainless install. If your gun has a high rate of fire, getting the 1 round burst setting to only fire one round will probably take some work. Here's what I went through: - Using command 2, I set the burst length to one round. Upon testing, I was getting 2-3 rounds per burst. Damn. - Using command 7, I set the sensitivity to the highest number, which is 19. I was still getting 2-3 round bursts. Double damn. - Using command 11, I set the burst length to 30 ms. Still got the occasional double cycle. Better, but still damn. - Using command 11 again, I modified the burst length to 24 ms. Consistent single round "bursts" with crisp trigger response. Perfect. - Please note that, if you have to manually set the burst length, yours will almost certainly be different than mine. The correct burst length to fire a single round depends on battery voltage, motor type, spring strength, gear ratio, and a million other things that are impossible to predict. I actually had to change my burst length when I downgraded springs (27 ms was perfect for a Guarder SP120, but 24 ms was just right for a Guarder SP110). The stock 0.6 second delay between burst fire and full auto is too short to be safe in CQB, in my opinion. I really don't want to accidentally lace anyone up at close range, so I used command 3 and set it to 1.0 seconds. A bit overkill, but I'd rather be safe than labeled an *albartroth*.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t G&P recently release a pre-built version of this exact gun? EDIT I thought you were unaware of the airsoft version’s existence. Apologies, reading is hard. Link: https://www.evike.com/products/94870/

    Why not have a HK416 with Avalon internals? https://www.evike.com/products/87966/

    Who’s MP5is the nicest?

    Update on the Avalon MP5. It takes Cyma MP5 tri-lug muzzles with a bit of fiddling. It’ll also fit a real Surefire grip, but be prepared to grind out the barrel supports. I managed to *barely* fit a nanoTech 11.1V 1000mAh “butterfly” LiPO in there. Trigger response with that and the newly-installed ASG CNC U-22000 motor is lovely, though.
