  1. Just had an odd thought:  Instead of buying multiple GATE NanoASR for most or my v3 gearbox replicas, I could just procure the double signal wire and wiring for the motor connection parts and just disconnect the mosfet whenever I want to swap out, couldn't I?

      Yes that's what I had planned for my NanoASR, I bought a spare signal wire so I could wire up multiple AEGs and then just shuffle it around them, never got around to doing it but it's certainly possible.

  3. Curious but is eHobby going out of business or something? Almost their entire site is on sale, and their inventory is like 1/3 what it used to be. Would sad to see them go :(

      They definately don't have the range they used to which is a shame, and whenever I look for anything now if they have it listed it's almost always OOS :(

      It will.... eventually, I guess that means it'd never break if it was run on 134a?

      What have they done this time? Made it even worse?

  8. The old Airbana map seems to have gone now. "oh we'll rely on facebook to publicise our site".. the *fruitcage* search on facebook is useless AF! When you don't play that often to keep up on what's closed and new places opening this is a PITA.

      Does the UKARA website show area/region next to the site names? The list won't load for me at the moment but they will have the best database of current sites, if it was searchable it'd make things much easier for players.

  9. Is Royal Mail International Tracked = USPS First Class?

    1. Rob15

      Rob15

      It's priority airmail and supposed to be a day or two faster than regular airmail, in practice I find it's 3 - 4 days for delivery without customs delays.

      Indeed, 2 weeks ago I wasn't even considering buying one, delivery alone is £350 + VAT :o

  11. Having difficulty getting hold of Arnie - are there any other mods/admins who can drop me a PM?

    1. Rob15

      Rob15

      If you want a subforum setting up you could try PM'ing Marlowe but you'll probably have to wait for Arnie to reply to you.

  12. You know what's worse than braking one of your favourite pistols? When that pistol is a 10 year old Tanio Koba.

      Stock piston head/cup is 13.5mm, my upgrade ones are around 13.6mm.

      I'm guessing it's a USP .40 SD and I'm guessing the part that broke is the trigger...

  15. Anyone know whats up with Airsoft Armoury? Someone on Z1 said the shop was empty and up for rent.

      I wouldn't be suprised if the lease for the old store came to an end while sorting the new one and they've just decided to get out and move to a new single location, suprising they've not posted anything about it anywhere though...

  16. eBay is just getting worse, apparantly now "M4" is a banned term and using it will get a listing removed... Well that rules out virtually every airsoft accessory/part then...

    1. Rob15

      You can link to a seperate site/page for info, but it can't be possible to buy from that website. I could setup a seperate page on my own website but I could see eBay kicking up a fuss over that at some point, the other option is having a completely seperate site so that I can continue paying 13% fees to keep all their moronic pen pushers in employment... decisions decisions ;)

      Rob15

      Directing to a seperate site with compatibility lists might work, but it then means if people are searching for "M4" the listing won't show up in the results, also issues with eBay and their circumvention of fees rule...

       

      Basically with eBay attempting to turn a profit is a losing battle, if it wasn't for the sales it does generate I'd drop it instantly, but this is the airsoft market and any sales are welcome, even after 13% fees are taken :(

      Or speedloader for sex toy? :P

       

      I wonder if this now means BMW M3 parts will start getting removed too, afterall M3 is the name of a real gunzor!

       

      Can't really decide if it's worth my time arguing the point with them though, last time I did it was over a gearbox being removed under their knives and weapons policy, I ended up pointing out that laptops would make a better weapon for beating people then gave up.

      That's what I was thinking, but according to eBay you are not allowed to use the name of a real firearm on a listing so that'd probably not be allowed. Basically it seems they want to ban sellers from giving any kind of useful description, daft thing is of all the listings of 'M4' related things they decided to pick on the one that's a pack of o-rings, they really don't deserve the 13% fees...

      That's the plan, but I've got to get it delivered, connected to power and tooled up first... and learn how to use the control first :P

    1. Rob15

      Rob15

      Airsoft World say it's machined, but they said the same about JG G3 RIS kits and they weren't even slightly machined so you never know...still, I'd say a reasonable price if it is fully machined considering the time it'd take to make them ;)

      Over priced depends on how it's made, if it's fully machined then it's a reasonable price, but if it's cast then very expensive....
