  1. I would of thought with a pair of 10A fuses you should be okay, thinking about it, it was orginally recommended to run a pair - the ones I have weren't that big. I have seen larger sizes for sale buy I think they were much bigger. I use to order them from the big electronic suppliers in the UK, such as farnell: https://uk.farnell.com/w/c/circuit-protection/thermistors/resettable-fuses/radial-leaded-pptcs Rich
  2. Yes I have. I was using 2 16V / 7A poly fuses in parallel or they "blow" quite quickly (once cooled its working fine again) in a 18:1 ratio gearbox with a 'standard' motor. They work well, just don't make sure you don't go too low or too high, depending on build you may need to use something a bit higher amperage than I used.

    WE New SMG ?

    Is that Glock mags? And doesn't that look more like an adaptor?

    Tokyo Marui AK Storm NGRS

    Now I've taken a second look at it, I'm wondering if it's non-standard as well. Looks be to about £400 / $ 500 retail in Japan. At least there including a magazine adaptor...

    GHK x Umarex Glock 17

    I'm very curious to the manner that GHK designed this - I wonder if its "We want a steel slide, how do we make it work properly" or "TM isn't very efficient how do we make it better". If this works well (the reviews will be interesting) I wonder how long before others copy the design.

    DAS HK416 & Daewoo K2 by GBLS

    So they had problems with backers (IIRC), them ages to get to market, questionable internal's (from what I've read), released a product and now developing an AK, 416 (An externals re-hash) with a 3rd RIF in development? I hate to sound negative over something so different internally, but it I can't figure out if they have decent margins or they are panic developing before they go under.
  7. I'm not aware of any shops in Gloucestershire - there was Redwolf in Tewkesbury, but I think the closest is now JD Airsoft up Cannock. In addition to Sharclaw's list I'd like to add Spartan's Woodland site right by Bristol Airport and Cotswold Airsoft out towards Moreton in Marsh (a nice site, but normally a good number of players but not crazy numbers). There is Drakelow Tunnels up in Kidderminster but I haven't been there. Rift Airsoft also have COM Site 3 up near Banbury and The Bomb Dump at Middle Wallop. Both are closer than GZ 😀 I'm also in the Gloucestershire area, I'm happy to help where I can.

    Who’s MP5is the nicest?

    I was holding out hope for LCT making a nice recoil MP5, but I thought I read somewhere about LCT using metal pistons for the AK series and bad things were happening. That might explain on why there doesn't seem to be any LCT recoil AK's out and about, just the kits. Which meant that I was thinking of getting a Bolt, but it seems to take them a couple of attempts to get it right....

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    Finally purchased one of these I couldn't feel any mush on the trigger but still took the hammer out to look for it! I think WE have made a change (attached). Mine also seems to have the trigger spring replaced with a spacer and do feel the trigger could do with a little more weight as the safety is catching the body

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    A slight bump, anyone come across the WE Europe MP7? There's a thread on zero one and it appears to be a revised model with a few problems fixed...

    When I've used free shipping in the past it was about a week and just provide your UKARA number to them. I've never had my UKARA number written on the box and my stuff hasn't been stopped either.

    PTW clones( DTW A&K etc)

    I've just found that the DTW nozzle was starting to work itself loose - it's only a fraction of a mm longer than the DTW one now. I can feel the nozzle being pushed back ever so slightly - not enough if it was fully forward. I assume the nozzle is suppose to help create an air seal like a aeg?

    PTW clones( DTW A&K etc)

    I brought an Alpha Part Cylinder as I have a nagging feeling about the DTW cylinder (along with the wrong porting hole) and now the nozzle is too short to create an air seal against the hop. The DTW nozzle is slightly too long and I can feel it pushing back on the spring when it meets the hop...new hop I wonder... Anyone have experience of the RWA CNC hop?

    PTW clones( DTW A&K etc)

    I've checked there the nozzle is released and it's a decent amount down the cylinder and in slow motion appears to have enough time to load a BB. Looking at the nozzle upside down it doesn't look like it has enough time... There is about 2mm movement of the nozzle tip (hop end) in all directions, does that seem a little excessive?
