    Anyone still around from the old days?

    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'. Mosfets as standard is becoming a little more common. Biggest change in AEGs imo has probably been the advancement/normalising of the 'flat hop' concept. We've moved on from the firefly 4 tooth/KM Head notched V type hops to larger contact patches in the hop sleeve and rather than H shaped buckings the cool kids use D shaped ones where the flat side contacts the outside of the hop rubber. And the tactical wardrobe scene all seems to be high cut plate carriers and go faster chest rigs.

    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. It's SRC (I have one from Airsoft World) There appears to be 3 versions of the JW3 2011 knocking around: Jag Precision (Army Armament) - Stampings/trades, red fibre optic front sight EMG (WE/Armorer Works) - Stampings/trade, green fibre optic front sight KLI/SRC - No markings whatsoever, e.g. barrel is not stamped 9x19, no markings on slide. Comes in a case...seems most places are offering it with a CO2 mag pre order bonus. Front and rear sights come with green fibre inserts. Technically has the wrong mag release on it. In terms of compatibility, I believe TM hi capas retain the BBU via a screw through the rear sight and a grub screw where the firing pin would be on a real gun. I can see that with the SRC that there is actually a fake 'functional' firing pin (it's a spring loaded pin that doesn't do anything). So right off the bat there look to be 'back end' issues with the SRC in terms of upgrade potential. Hop unit looks normal so aftermarket rubbers should be OK. If you don't care for trades or upgrades then the KLI/SRC might be worth it if you just want a funky looking HiCapa, but I'd rather have the Jag Precision/AA version.

    ICS L85 MOSFET issues.

    I know this is an old thread but I have a Trigger Master MkIII computerised FET in my ICS L85 which is practically retro tech these days but something I found to be lacking with the ICS switch in the TMH/lower is that the copper/gold parts of the switch look like they are just press fit. I seem to recall having 'signal wire' related issues until I took the switch apart and tinned all over the back of any 'press fit' parts. Installing the TM Mk3 also necessitated the removal of the 'upper' contacts and I have 1.5mm bullet connectors running between the fet and trigger switch instead, I'm not that au fait with electronics but the switch as standard to me seems like it has a lot of potential points of resistance which could upset a FET.

    VSR style hop rubbers and 80mm inner barrel? What are the retention options with this? I can't see a lanyard loop on it.

    Ran a marathon yesterday. Posterior kinetic chain is rekt. Translation: My *albatross* and hamstrings are quite achey.

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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'' marring in the one of the vehicles paintwork and I've lost a bit of paint off the front wing of my car, I've got a more extensive correction to do while they've probably got about 10 minutes with T-Cut to sort out (or maybe 40 if they delt with all their other scratches). I informed them and they seemed very non plussed about it, and after mulling it over notified my insurers as it reads like it is a requirement to do so in case the other party decides to make a claim. Bit annoyed that it's happened and while I'm technically at the mercy of the other party I'm wondering if I've done the right thing? Details have been exchanged, my insurer notified, as it's a carpark scuff I know I don't need to inform the police but other than being a decent human being would there be any real drawback to telling 'everyone' about it?

    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.

    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).

    Magpul PTS RM4 ERG Series.

    We need RA-Tech to do a comparison of recoil in that little rig of theirs, it's probably the closest we'd get to entertaining empirical testing.

    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.
