  1. HK3 G17 Gen3 - I spent 3 hours stippling the frame, shrinking the finger grooves and undercutting the trigger guard in the hopes that it'll prevent me from selling it, buying a 1911, then realising Glocks are far more practical and fit my hand better all over again.
  2. See it could well have been the recoil loosening the adjustment on mine, as occasionally I'd get laser accurate shots, sometimes no hop, sometimes overhop. I found it very inconsistent, but I thought that may have been down to the bucking in it... Either way, it's binned now! I'm using the stock G&P chamber as well, but due to the design of the MRP barrel I can't adjust it at all - I've got it flying .3's quite well at the moment, but it's annoying not being able to fine tune it. Heh, I feel honoured! It's literally my pride and joy, so nice to know other people appreciate it
  3. The one I had issues with was the Prime WA barrel rear adjust chamber - The stock rubber was a bit too hard for the FPS I'm running, so I went to change it - Unfortunately, the front and rear halves of the unit were fitted so tightly together they couldn't be separated, at least without a specialist tool. Trying to pry the two halves of the unit apart damaged it beyond repair unfortunately. The Iron Airsoft one was indeed the latest type - 1004G I believe is the product code. Despite numerous different buckings, I couldn't get it to seal at all - The BB's were dropping feet in front of the
  4. See I've got an R/S Ergo grip in black, but it's just not OD! That, and the storage compartment in the MOE grip is quite handy - I keep an inert .223 and a bag of sour skittles in it for emergencies. Still, definitely the nicest Airsoft gun I've ever owned, totally worth the money! Although the Prime hop unit it came with was a nightmare, the Iron Airsoft one I bought wouldn't seal at all, and it's now running a bog standard G&P one I've fixed for .3's... Oh well. Thanks man - I was considering a UBR, but a PTS UBR is about £150 if I can even find one in OD, and the F93 stock w
  5. Hawaiianjuggernaught got me an R/S Ergo F93 stock, thusly making my MRP officially complete. Well, I'd like to change the optic to a Vortex Sparc, but I'm poor.
  6. Has anyone got any experience with the IA AEG hop unit for the WA system? In need of some advice!

      Have you fielded this question to GGI? You'll probably have people with the most experience on there.

  7. G&P have re-done the SMG; You can buy them brand new from a fair few retailers now! http://airsoftzone.co.uk/m4-moe-9mm-smg-magpul-black-aeg-gnp?filter_name=G&P%20SMG Admittedly that's the magpul jobbie, but it's got the proper lower receiver and ejection port/shell deflector, and I'm sure you can buy the standard carry handle one from a few places.
  8. On ZeroOne, a 'Customer review' states that utterly appalling King Arms WAM4 mags are the best he has used in his WEM4. Seems legit.

      Btw. guise, did you know that TM P226 mags also work in the Magpul PDR?

    2. FireKnife

      FireKnife

      Yes, but when you start getting an AR to feed 1911 mags you are on to a winner. Seriously TM 1911 mags fit the latest WE M4.

  9. Admiral Sandecker would be proud man. Damn nice build.
  10. My MRP, probably due to the stock G&P bucking in it, hasn't been hugely consistent of late. So I thought I know; It's got a Prime Hop unit in it. That takes AEG buckings and barrels, right? I'll just disassemble it and put in some AEG parts I have and give those a try. Whoever the hell put that hop unit together, I hope someone smashes a bottle on them in a bar fight. Seriously, the two main halves were physically impossible to separate, to the point that after opening up a tiny little gap with a razor, the flathead screwdriver I managed to insert and carefully rock back and fourth
  11. DO NOT EVER BUY A PRIME WA SYSTEM HOP UNIT. EVER.

    1. Probotector

      Probotector

      AND WHY SHOULDN'T WE BUY THEM?!?

      THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE AND EVEN WORSE HOP UNITS. Might have been a particularly bad one but mine physically couldn't be dismantled. Got a couple of iron Airsoft ones on the way though, huzzah.

  12. Pick up a few thin cross section O-rings the same outer diameter as the flash-hider - Pop one into the can, just behind the anti-rotation post - It'll be a little more difficult to attach the silencer due to the fact you're compressing an O-ring, but it should make it nice and solid. Saying that, mine has been on a Birdcage flash-hider for a while, and it obviously rotates and it's not rock solid, but with the foam gone the BB doesn't clip the edges at all.
  13. Where'd you manage to find a Surefire one? One of the ACM jobbies or a Madbull? I was tempted by one of the replicas but I've proper fallen in love with this here AAC one.. Thanks man! Although in future, remember to delete the pics when you quote a post just to save 'em showing twice on the same page!
  14. I honestly murderously hate people who can't hack the fact GBBR's are totally practical skirmish weapons.

    1. hwagan

      As something designed to put BB's out of the barrel, I can agree with that. In my experience though, not including cold weather, my GBBR's have been more reliable in the field. I've had AEG trigger contacts burn out on me, gearbox lockups and motor connectors work loose, as well as overheated motors and other things. I'm more confident in my GBBR putting a round out when I pull the trigger than an AEG, even if an AEG can throw out (an unncessary amount) more in a shorter space of time.

      I would love to agree but I havent skirmished mine yet it needs a *fruitcage* ton of work doing.

      What make and model is it? The key is stick to stock manufacturer stuff other than the hop or unless there's a serious design flaw!

  15. SILENCE ALL OF THE GUNS. Also swapped the OD over to the MRP because I like it, needs an OD Ergo F93 now to finish it off. The G&P KAC Can is now JimmyPie's, but the second gun will be getting a 51T so I can use the M42000 on both.
  16. Not sure if it'd work out economically for you, but G&P Pmags have always been fantastic for me - Very simple design, PTS licensed Pmag replicas and they're £45 from AirsoftZone, although the international shipping might kill the price... Saying that, trying the GHK G5 mags in my WA's, they definitely punch a little harder than the G&P mags.
  17. Iron Airsoft receivers; Anyone know where they sell 'em?

    1. vilerk

      vilerk

      No prob!

      Haven't ordered from them myself, but there are a couple of guys on GGi who have with no problems though.

  18. To be honest, I think as with all gas guns, a lot of it is user experience. For example, this is my 5th G&P WA System gun - All of them have worked absolutely fine, no issues at all. I've had to tweak the hop on a couple, but honestly other than that I've never had the slightest hint of a problem. Mine have always worked well, I'm yet to wear a Bolt carrier into an unuseable condition, nothing breaks, etc etc. I'd say when it comes to the WA system, you need to simply get the right combination of parts. In my experience that combination is everything G&P, except for the RA-Tech red
  19. Well Jon's got a Bomber of his own now (An M727/203), and I'm slowly nudging AZ into stocking them, so with some luck there won't be such a WA based black hole in the UK in the not too distant...
  20. AirsoftWorld have thoroughly regained my respect and custom.

      Nah man, made an order yesterday for 3 tins of Brut, RA-Tech WOC rubber and bearing hammer, needed for the weekend - They called up, informed me the rubber was out of stock, but they'd ship the rest for delivery tomorrow and post the rubber FOC as soon as it's in stock again. Thoroughly nice bloke, very polite and helpful and agrees gas guns are the way forward!

      Huh, usually I just get BS and attitude from them. Add in the botched repairs some people have had it doesn't bode well but still good.

      See I gotta say, when was the last time there was a complaint on here about them? I wasn't a fan in the past but I can't fault them on the last 3 orders I've made at all, even if I try! Not sure I'd trust their tech department, although saying that they're about the only place in the UK stocking WA System GBBR parts at the moment..

  21. Thanks to Ckinnerley, the MRP now has a little brother...
  22. I've confirmed My MRP DOES have Prime externals... *smug*

  23. You'd get along famously with my best mate Tony, that's exactly his logic!
  24. I think it really depends on your mentality; I used to be a right miserable sod when I was younger, so that was exaggerated by it. Generally the gist seems to be if you've had brain issues before, smoking on the reg is likely to bring those issues out a bit. Either way, it's going well so far, just gotta stick at it! Mashing Z's with garden implements is definitely helping.
  25. Ah I meant the non-tobacco kind of smoking dude - Still, one thing at a time for now, once I've thoroughly gotten over the bud I'll get to work on the fags! Definitely - That was another deciding factor, I really can't afford it! Plus, I've seen an R/S build recently of a 10.5 MRP upper on a KAC SR15 Ambi lower, and those Iron Airsot receivers ain't cheap!
