  1. One, Ares of all people. Think KA was supposed to do a GBB version at some point. Not a whole lot has changed...there's a few RS manufacturer's that are leaning in quite heavily into the hobby via licencing e.g. Krytac have an AEG Kriss in the field, do a range of M4s and they also have .22cal real rifles that you can buy in the UK...that look an awfully lot like re purposed AEG parts. Umarex are slightly less annoying in that you don't get half a bible printed down the side of your VFC HK416 and VFC is churning out plenty of German pistols 'legitimately' rather than via 'Stark Arms'.
  2. What's done that? I can't believe Guns n Guy is still going as well as Den Trinity...do DT still do that thing where they email you an invoice to pay prior to shipping overseas? I seem to recall there used to be a retailer called something like "BoomArms Cafe"?
  3. VSR style hop rubbers and 80mm inner barrel? What are the retention options with this? I can't see a lanyard loop on it.
  4. Ran a marathon yesterday. Posterior kinetic chain is rekt. Translation: My *albatross* and hamstrings are quite achey.
  5. Question which might be better answered here...I see a rail further up that has abbreviated 3/9/6 oclock rails in common with the Geissele SMR Mk4 (pre Keymod derivative)....is there any way of attaching additional rails to units like this or is it best to go with something like the SMR Mk5 if true super modularity is what you need? EDIT: I've seen that Geiselle do 'add on rails' for their pre keymod Mk4...looks like the benefit of Keymod is less fuss/fiddle and reduced weight?
  6. I'm really, really, attracted to that Salient slide kit. Can owners please provide some feedback on the strength of the slide return/recoil spring? While a totally different brand I felt the KWA USP recoil spring was insufficient even on a stock slide, given the lack of spring guide/spring upgrades available (Compared to hops, barrels, slides, sights so far) I'm inclined to think it's not considered a weak part of the gun?
  7. Person with offspring that they are unable to reasonably control in public places, idiot. Person lacking situational awareness such that they bump/trample small children, also an idiot I think it's fair to say that most if not all of us would work on the principle of 'observe, judge,' (exec-...wait...) but more often that not we're faced with displays of behaivour that become a stereotypical norm.
  8. Bit of a FFS moment for me. Parking at work at times can resembling a Bangledeshi box junction. I find that I'm left with an impossible situation of being flanked by 2 A4s with 2 other vehicles forming the top of T infront of me with a very tight gap to get out of. It's something I do successfully day in day out, while eeking out at lunch today I know I came close to another vehicle but given the sheer drop of the nose on my Civic it can at times be hard to judge where the exact extent of the car is. Anyway I get back onto our carpark about 40 minutes later to find I've left a 12'' ma
  9. Personally I'm waiting for: SD Slide + Barrel set GunsModify Tritium sights Action upgraded recoil spring+guide. Appropriate length 6.03 assuming it isn't an already commonly available size. Then either a falcon of PDI W hold bucking and the foos'cappin can begin.
  10. I quite like that as is, 12'' barrel with 9'' foregrip? Looks like it has the right amount of balance for a 'all venues' gun with just enough rail for the essientials without the whole front end being weighed down (I know most modern rails are pretty light but I've got some orrible JBU Olympic Arms tubular RAS units that weigh a tonne for what they are).
  11. True - it's just that I haven't seen many, if any GBBs get to the 3x mag cap mark while still maintaining sufficient blowback impulse to lock back. While my KWA USP .45 has been a labour of love to get it looking the way it does and performance is adequate for a side arm range/accuracy wise, I'm quite interested in this as its essientially an updated USP - the standard accessory rail, TM hop, evident gas efficiency and inevitable aftermarket support really appeals.
  12. That's impressive, should stand it in good stead for 'at least a mags worth of ammo' efficiency when a metal slide is added.

    SA80 Picture Thread

    Well, I have a Trigger Master Fet that sits neatly above the barrel in the upper receiver, when I originally installed it I had the signal wires running to the upper trigger contacts. These would then be in contact with the lower trigger set contact bars, but as I found when I took the lower set apart, they little studs that come into contact with one another are only press fitted into holes in the contact bars. This to me seemed to be a weakness as you had 6 points where the electrical connectivity seemed to be poor - this was at least backed up by intermittent function on pulling the trigger

    Alternatively, with mosfets that use 2 signal wires you can the top contacts, take the lower contacts and tin the contact 'nubs' (they are just press fit pieces) and mod the lower contact 'box' so you have two lines that you can fit tiny bullet connectors to that connect to the signal wires.
