    I think I only waited a few hours, at most, to get the shipping cost. If you're after a G&G M1903 (which is not going to be cheap to send!), I suggest that you email for a shipping quote first. It's very likely to be in the range you've suggested - especially with the hammering that the exchange rate has taken recently...

    Yes. Several times - never had a problem. The ordering process is a tad odd though - you pay for the goods then they'll tell you what the shipping is, and then you pay for that separately.

    Get one project sorted first before moving onto the second. Far better to have one gun working perfectly than two that don't.

    Your maths is a bit up the creek there chap, you forgot the 5% duty paid on items plus shipping before it's compounded by VAT, and UPS certainly do charge a customs clearance fee. I've lost count how much they've had off me in total! All in all, that £250 rifle will end up costing a total of £359.1 (with Duty and VAT paid), and either £11 or £13.40 (it's one of those two figures, but I can't be arsed to dig through my files) on top - so at the very least you'll be paying £370.10 - so you're saving about 30 quid, which is naff all when you consider that if it's DOA or goes pop in the first few months of ownership you can send it back if it's purchased in the UK.

    They are complete *suitcase*, made from very poor quality monkey metal. Here's a good reason you don't want to go for a charging handle made of cast mazac (pic is mine)

    It's years since King Arms made any of them, sadly.

    FCC do a replica of the Troy ambidextrous charging handle. It's listed as for the PTW, but it'll fit (you might have to file the "wings" on the side slightly), and you'll need to do the roll pin mod as well.

    Just on materials alone, the Angry Gun and Blacksmith bolts are both superior to the RA-Tech offering.

    WE's receivers (being die-cast of not exactly premium grade materials) are not that strong, so the more thread engagement you have the better as the stress load is spread over the largest area possible. I've had several WE's in over the last few weeks due to screwed lower receivers, and the crack propagation points on both were at the bottom of the threading at the rear of the receiver. It's risk-minimisation really. Removing Part 91 is easy, just need a screw driver, a wood screw, and half a meter of gaffa tape lol. If you only need to remove a short length then extremely coarse sandpaper and elbow grease does the trick.

    Useful vids, but sorry, you're wrong about unscrewing the buffer tube one full turn - it's a bad idea from an engineering point of view. It should be threaded in as far as possible (i.e. up to the buffer retainer) as that way the shock load is spread across a larger surface area at the interface between the threading on the lower receiver and the threading on the stock tube. If you have a problem with the bolt not being able to recoil far enough to allow reliable magazine catch engagement then you need to reduce the length of Part #91.

    Neither are worth it. Dytac crossdrill one part way, way too close to the end so the clamping lever has an annoying habit of pulling through the end of it.

    Pretty much my go-to (unless I can find the LCT FCG parts, and they're rare as rocking horse *suitcase* these days)

    Nowt wrong with the steel G&P FCG. It's a good deal more solid than a lot of supposed "upgrade parts" (RA-Tech, im looking at you).

    My forward assistiness goes to 11! [/spinalTap]

    Arghhhhh! Why do companies do this? They got the trades bang on, but there's too many forward assist notches in the bolt! (OCD time)
