  1. I bought this on the recommendation of a team mate and I'm very impressed. Solid build, holds zero and looks the part https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B016KSA56E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. Phil has the best M4s. They also run perfectly - I have the welts to prove it.
  3. The King Arms M1928 is proper - right dimensions and engraving etc. I love mine. http://www.kingarms.com/product_detail.php?id=260 Oh and I joined about ten years ago but don't skirmish ATM.
  4. All the prop guns in that awful Alien Vs Predator movie were airsoft replicas, supplied by Wolf.
  5. WHERE can I get those helms and armour? Very cool!
  6. What are you selling and when Wolf? There's a lot of players / collectors here who'd crawl over glass to get hold of one of your collection!
  7. Luckily the S&T Sterling has the easiest QC spring set up I've seen - 2mins and your under 350. Or well over Mine came with a spring that looked like it doubled as truck suspension... !
  8. Does anyone know where I can pick up a proper, TM'd pistol case for a PPQ / P99 from?
  9. Have a word with JD Airsoft - last time I was in there, Phil (owner) said that all the WE GBB rifles now come with a red valve / BBU that keeps FPS below 350. Apparently WE had a lot of issues with buyers wanting downgrades / stuffing things ups with DIY 'fixes'.
  10. Darn it! Just when I'm dropping all my modern (dull=rails) kit, WE do this... Will wait for for the Euro version (lower FPS valve as std these days, chaps) and them possibly get the 90s black kit out of the loft.

    Busted TM MEU - knocker valve on the piste.
  15. I've checked all their shipping policies and cannot see anything that says they won't ship to the UK. In fact, during the order process they state that shipping to the UK needs UKARA. I can get the gun elsewhere but (a) it's 30% more and ( they don't have the mags so I'll still end up paying fat postage from the US whatever. Emailed Evike but <fruit> all back from them so far.
  16. Just had an order bounced and refunded by Evike because it's "against UK customs rules" or something. It's just an AEG and I've shipped stuff in from the US before... What the <fruit> is going on? Gave them my UKARA and as they offer a 2tone service they must ship guns to the UK. They refunded the PP account but I still want the gun. Should I take this personally or does anyone from Evike use this forum?
  17. Anyone used these guys and if so: Do I need to have the parcel with my UKARA writ large upon it to clear UK customs? As they're in the EU will I get stung with any import charges? How quick is their Free Shipping? Cheers!
  18. Blackhawk Serpa holsters fit my 1911s - all either TM or TM clones. The ACM copies of the serpa's also work but can be a little tight at first and they're dirt cheap. Other than that, all mine fit into WW2 US and UK holsters.
  19. You should try playing with / against him: Phil costs us all money! He has all the best toys!
  20. I'd be interested to see how a steel PPQ slide performs. Mine is a nice pistol but the blowback doesn't feel strong enough to cope with a heavier slide. C02 mags would make a difference.
  21. Hell Yeah! CQB on the 'morrow and it's pistols all the way. Got a PPQ to christen
  22. JD Airsoft were selling them at the Fireball Weekender. They're a trifle hot for the UK but the Dan Wesson powerdown shells do fit. Can't say what they chrono at.
  23. Last year the USMC signed a new order with Colt to replace all their std M9s with .45s again. I think that the new std is a railed MEU-style frame however I'm far from sure. What I do remember is the deal being done: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/07/28/marines-pay-22m-to-go-back-to-their-old-guns-colt-45-caliber-pistols/ On the above post re: the Army copies, I have both of these. The Desert Warrior has been a reliable performer but the use of the old 1911 lowers on Springfield uppers brings on my OCD! The mags are shocking and both guns eat gas like there's no tomorrow. Best thing to do
  24. Noticed the lack of comments on this thread so thought that I'd add my experiences... Got one of the first ones in the UK from JD Airsoft last year and it has been downgraded to shoot sub 350fps so a good start. Physically the gun is lovely and looks like a freshly minted Garand should. It's also very easy to stain the woodwork if you like the darker, battle worn look as it's real oiled wood and not plastered in the horrible red gloop that covers ACM wood stocks. The trigger guard is the later shape so more Korea than WW2 and the bayonet lug won't take a RS bayonet which I find a little f
