    I received my second order from these guys yesterday and just like the first one it arrived in great condition, everything as advertised and all in a few days! I find their website is fairly good, if you know what you want then you can find it in a few clicks and the search works really well. If you are like me and want to browse everything in a category slowly then it can be a bit harder to navigate, being able to filter AEG's by model instead of just manufacturer would be a great improvement. The website has a very accurate stock count, it's very reassuring to know that if it says in stock you can be 99.9999% certain that is correct. They have a fantastic range of products for sale and are probably one of the best UK retailers for the harder to find bits of kit, especially Magpul stuff. It really has the feel of a warehouse rather than a shop, they really have enough to keep you busy browsing for a whole day at work (I should know I tested!) The sales support is great, I had a problem with Royal Mail holding up my order and even though it was no fault of their own, Fire-Support still helped me resolve it. Many Thanks to Frank on that one! All in all I'd give them a 9/10 and they are definitely on my go-to list for payday mornings

    All that article says is that they are no longer outsourcing manufacturing but it doesn't specifically say they are already using their own manufactured gearboxes in the ACR yet. It seems to point more to the fact that their new Proline AEG's will be manufactured by them and maybe have a bolt stop feature like the marui sopmod but it doesn't exactly point to the ACR, although I can now see how you are putting two and two together.

    Where do you actually get this information from or do you just make it up? PTS have never acknowledged that the gearbox was manufactured by Ares as far as anything I've read (although that looks very much the case due to the similarities) and I never saw/heard any announcements that they were going to be using a different manufacturer for the internals other than the current one.

    Interesting, haven't heard anything about that from any sites

    WE KAC PDW (Open Bolt)

    I like it, especially the Android logo, it's done quite neatly

    Fitted my RIS last night, I'm so pleased with it I think I was still smiling when I woke up this morning

    Damn Phil that is looking awesome Have you changed the hop rubber in the new barrel or are you just using the stock one? I'm guessing it's the same as the original hop rubber?

    Just ordered the RIS handguard (FDE) from Dingodogs, will let you know my opinions on it when it arrives

    Anybody heard anything official on the accessories? Dingodogs have posted on their facebook page:

    Ah I've found similair ones on Fire-Support, hopefully they will do the Job, thanks! That was my original plan but I need it before the weekend

    Managed to lose the self retaining hand guard pin this weekend (oh the irony) Any body know of any pins for other guns that will fit? I've been told a G36 or MP5 pin might do the trick? Otherwise the allen key and electrical tape will just have to do me until the RIS hand guard comes out

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    I'm pretty sure all the guns are made in the same place, just a few alterations to the UK spec models. I think it's just better wiring, different paint, a less powerful spring and an extra bit of plastic screwed onto the hand guard to hold the retainer pin. All good things of course but it hardly makes it a completely different gun. I highly doubt most guns are ROHS compliant, seems Magpul went a step further than most manufacturers in this department? (I'm only saying this as I've never seen or heard of another gun being advertised as fully ROHS compliant)

    Or the RIS front end? I'm dying to get my hands on that

    Gah I hope it's not the switch, did you get it fixed by the retailer or did you manage it yourself?

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Had a bit of an issue with my Masada on Sunday, it was running a bit hot for the site so I swapped the springs and after that the problem started. It was randomly cutting out, no grinding noises or anything but it was exactly as if the gun had no battery and after running a few more steps it would start working again but this kept happening every 15-20mins. The battery wasn't flat and the gun ran fine in between this, same rate of fire and great trigger response. I'm thinking it's definately electrical and my first guesses would be the connector to the battery or the connectors on the motor coming loose. I was quite careful changing the spring and don't think I did anything that would affect the electrics. I'm hoping that is it rather than an issue with the micro switch. I'll investigate it when I get home tonight, just wondering if anyone else has had the same/similar issue? Other than that though the gun was a pleasure to use

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    I'm quite pleased with mine, no problems so far with about 1000 rounds through it I'm a bit confused about Airsoft Oddysey's guide to the differences between the import and UK spec Masada. Mine isn't the UK spec, but I have a "silver" cylinder unlike the import in the below picture. Is that just poor lighting in the photograph and the both have "silver" cylinders? or is there maybe a 3rd spec of Masada? My s/n is MPTS00074 which is quite low, so I'd imagine it was an import from one of the first batches, I got it from Land Warrior before they got the UK spec ones in and ether way I'm very happy with it so far

    Scuffer, any chance of some close up shots of the changes? Would like to compare it to my non UK spec one

    I still haven't taken mine out for a full game yet but it's been a joy to use in my little practice shooting sessions, really impressed with the range and the trigger response

    I got my FDE Masada yesterday, didn't have a chance to play with it as all my batteries are wired for Deans I've changed the masada to deans though and I can't wait to give it a good work out next Sunday! I don't have any washers on my barrel but it seems to sit quite nicely with almost no wobble at all. There are a few mold lines, but nothing worse that I've seen on any of my other guns. Only fired off about half a mag in the back garden at 10pm last night but it was a joy to shoot The only thing I don't like about the gun is that it has made me put my beloved SCAR away for awhile

    I know, it's damn tempting to take a trip there tomorrow and I'll be playing there on Sunday anyways, was going to try hold out for an FG one from Dingodogs though but the suspense is killing me lol

    Gah another two weeks until Dingodogs get their pre-orders in

    Quality Control, for example the people that check that all the washers are on and that the gun doesn't have any defects
  23. Apocalypsemeow

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    From the Dingodogs website: WE ARE ONLY STOCKING THE UK SPEC MASADA! Not the USA OR ASIA spec as seen for sale on some other UK Retailers sites. This is why the UK Spec Masada has taken longer to be produced as it has been manufactured on a seperate production line at a later stage to the USA or Asia Spec Masadas. UK MASADA IS RoHs Compliant with Upgraded Wiring & 1 Joule Spring, Firing at 328fps. They also come c/w a UK Stamped Warranty Card (unlike the USA or Asia Spec Models)!! Hopefully this might mean better QC on the UK spec Masada's compared to the import ones, or they could just have a whole new set of issues

    Landwarrior now have their delivery of UK masada ACr's They didn't have any FG ones so my pre-order is with DingoDogs, hopefully I'll hear from them soon

    Well it's nice to know that even with issues like this they are sticking by the warranty and sorting it out, although I'd prefer the issues didn't exist in the first place....
