    WWII Weapons Picture Thread

    Quick question for any Broomhandle/M712 guys. What magazine pouches are you using for the long mags? I'm after some brown leather ones, cant find any that I'm confident will fit.

    The bit with the bearings your handlebars and forks pivot on.

    It's pretty common stuff in the plumbing merchant world. We've had our place scoped out, and the last place I worked at was watched for a bit too. Basically the idea is you won't know who else is a potential customer unless you know who's shopping with the competition. So you have a gander at their shop for a bit, write down some names and numbers, then ring them up and say you've seen their van about, where do you shop, are you happy with them, what do you fit, can we quote you on some stuff, etc etc. It's just as effective as going through the yellow pages because you'll know where they're shopping so you'll have an idea what to offer them. For example, Competitor X is known to be very keen on their copper tube prices and will push customers towards Ideal Boilers, so maybe don't try to poach their customers by pitching them copper, but do offer them an alternative boiler manufacturer if they're open to it.

    Ugh. Boring job today. Sat in my car opposite one of the competition's shop scouting out which customers are shopping there. Frankly it's a detestable task, but it's just one of those things you do. At least I get paid to sit in my car and read a magazine. Coffee cup is empty though.

    After sweating my testicles off at the NAE, I thought I'd get one of them slick looking 5.11 tactical duty kilts which I've seen about. Apparently not. Everywhere is out of stock, and it seems they're not making them anymore. Bugger.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    I know what you mean, it did go a bit squiffy for a couple of years, but we were there primarily for the camping. This year I feel was the best year yet. Besides one angry delta dude that offered to "batter" a guy for some imaginary slight everyone was very friendly. Had people coming past on the way to the dead zone complimenting our shooting and play.

    Picked up a mint condition WE M712 Mauser carbine at GZ for only 50 quid. Very nice bit of kit.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    I need to give it a listen. Love a bit of Slipknot.

    Oh man. I'm so sorry to hear that. ☹️ As Hedge says, I'm here for you if you need to talk.

    Honestly, it's nothing special to look at. I'll get a pic at the next game though as my airsoft room is a *suitcase* pit. For now, please accept a pic of me with a mate's M60. There was a bit of hip fire involved, as I didn't have the bipod attached. The 80s movie quips are always on point. I dont need a belt fed for that.

    Sorry chief. Happy to report that my M249 performed like a champ, and I managed to blow through 5,500 rounds with it in a 3hr game.

    Yeah, in hindsight I wish I'd stuck with it. It was just a lot of filler activities with precious little of the stuff we wanted to do. (Which now, as an adult, I realise was probably down to budget)

    That's why I binned it off. Same with scouts actually. Only went there twice

    This needs to be law. When are you running for overlord? I find it mad that people get so touchy over a vessel they no longer inhabit.

    I've found for a single player game of recent years, Horizon Zero Dawn takes some beating. Well fleshed out world, fantastic story and great game mechanics.

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Just bought an M249 from a guy on site. Opened it up at home for a look, and nearly had a heart attack at the state of the wiring. Ended up chopping out the whole lot. Oh well. If I weren't prepared to fix things I wouldn't own a soldering iron.
  17. As above, am after a railed handguard for an A&K M249. I definitely want the lower handguard, not too fussed about the upper.

    On the plus side though, you get to strut about with a sword. Pretty kickass.

    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    Seen Ohshiboom grenades go off with the pin still in. Took a hard knock to do it, but still. Didn't sit right with me.

    Maybe it's some kind of self-ghillieing suit, so you wear it and run through a bush and it covers you in fresh local foliage? Or maybe he's played too much warhammer 40k and thought spikey bits on armour is cool.
