  1. Hwagan, you mind posting what made that AEG go over 1k? :)

     

    Look at the bolt ;)

     

    It's a G&P/Bomber (From what I can find out, G&P guts in Prime externals, although that's unconfirmed) MRP WA System GBBR; The gun itself goes on Ehobby for $900, and the Strike Systems dot sight, mount, ASAP, Ergo grip and BUIS bring it up to around $1070 or so. A functioning mag (because G&P STANAGS are non-starters) is another $50 odd on top for the G&P Pmag.

  2. Last time I tried to get in here with an AEG that might have just about barely touched $1k if you counted every single tiny part at it's most expensive price...

     

    Finally, legitimate entry!

  3. Ha ha, it's a Novel Arms Tac-One, copy of the Night Force 1.5-4 , with a home brew MRDS added (ACOG specific, shimmed,drilled and tapped for a solid fit)

    And not for sale, really liking it :)

     

    Hwagan, not looking too shabby yourself :)

     

     

    I'm just ashamed that I'm photographing a thousand pound gun with an Iphone camera... Really need to get some proper shots of it at some point!

  4. I'm using the liquid on my GBBR, and I love the stuff - The action is butter smooth, and value for money wise, very little is required. I like the smell 'n all, plus the cartoon frog is pretty bonus.

    I'm applying on the hammer roller, a drop in the FCG, a dab around the recoil buffer and middle of the BCG. As a side note, I've also been using it on the nozzle O-ring since I got the gun, and I can see no visible signs of harm to it. Possibly decent quality rubber standing up to it, but I think I'll probably go back to using silicone on the O-ring to be safe.

  5. Welcome to the club Wilde! Your bank account should be terrified ;) And Jimmypie, I'm not normally a big fan of Mk18's but the attention to detail on yours is nuts, really nice build.

     

    Also, updated the MRP a little for an upcoming night game, and sprayed the barrel with Plastikote to prevent the rust:

    Amazingly, I haven't even needed to touch the hop on this - Admittedly it requires taking the barrel assembly out to adjust, but now it's set it's kicking .3's out on an exceptionally nice trajectory.

  6. That's got the aluminium bolt carrier right? Any other differences to the US version? Assuming its not just basically the KSC model.

     

    Just want to avoid paying LWA prices for the US model

     

    Nah, steel - I believe all models have the steel carrier, unless there are new ones I've not yet heard of. I had the model LWA sell, and it was generally fantastic - Only real reason I shifted mine was I'm a sucker for trademarks, and I've gotten pretty good with the WA system's foibles. Might be worth contacting Milspec Solutions - They previously sold them, although they're off the website now - However, they might still be able to get one in!

  7. Okay, complete confusion here..

     

    Is this the US KWA version, or is it the KSC version labelled as KWA?

    Trying to tell if it has the steel bolt but can't tell from pics:

    I believe it's the KWA Hong Kong version; I have a feeling Bladerunner168 can confirm this if he sees this, because I think he had that particular model!

  8. I did the same to my MFR with some 3M sticker....... but didn't cut the holes.........yet

     

    The sticker is very scratch resistant and nice to touch, little bit slippery though

     

     

    I'm pretty sure that's what the guy used; It's actually a really nice finish, although I can agree it's not very grippy...

     

     

     

  9. Hi guys! I've recently acquired an LM4 finally and have a quick question to ask you! I want to change the barrel down to a CQBR, I heard the OEM outer barrel is a two part to take it down to a 10" but I don't want to start mangling the barrel if that isn't the case! Can someone please confirm this for me? I can see what looks like a join but im not sure. 

     

    Also if it is a two part, whats the easiest way to get them separate? 

     

    Cheers!

     

     

    It is a two part barrel, but in my case, it was exceptionally difficult to remove. It was threadlocked on, and I ended up ruining the extension despite wrapping it in electrical tape when using pliers... Might be easier for you, or heating the barrel could work. Either way, once it's removed you'll also need to replace or cut down the inner barrel.

     

    Unfortunately, I can't remember the thread direction off the top of my head... I think it's negative, but I can't confirm that so find out first!

  10. I was so excited I finally got my MRP I forgot I also still have a sewing machine for the times I'll need it. Picked up the carbon fibre'd MFR rail from a mate, and it sort of looks quite race-gun-ish to me, so I'm leaving the carbon fibre on it for now. Need to get rid of the A2 grip..

  11. Not sure who the question is directed to, but mine was firing at 360-70fps, which is too hot for my local site (350fps) and definitely too for those 330fps CQB limited sites. Anything 330 and below would be great.

     

    Not sure whether my friends Xcortech chorono or my local site's Madbull chrono is wrong, but the latter insists its around 320-30fps, whereas the former puts it at the above fps, firing hot. Suppose i can't complain, at least its not the other way round!

     

     

    The Madbull Chrono is wrong; That is a fact. Madbull Chrono's are well known for being utterly appalling, and about as consistent as edibility of burgers at festivals.

  12. Me thinks you need to treat yourself to a RS optic to complement that beautiful chunk of gun  :wub:

     

     

    I really do, but the gun cost enough itself! Saying that, Jon was nice enough to give me the Strike Systems Aimpoint and I'm actually thoroughly impressed; Click-adjustable turrets, no issues with recoil yet, nice bright clear dot etc. 

     

    Saying that, it's due a Trijicon or maybe an Eotech when I can afford one; That may not be for a little while though! :P

  13. Prime receiver set?

     

     

    Close, it's the full on G&P/Bomber MRP Pre-Built WOC; From everything I've managed to find via google (which is very very little), it's Prime externals filled with G&P guts, built in-house by G&P. Whether or not any of that is true, I have no idea! I've been waiting a couple of years to finally get my hands on one, and it's met my expectations and then some.

     

    The upper and lower are fully CNC'd, the markings are nicer than any I've ever seen on any Airsoft gun, and it's solid as a rock and performs like a champ with G&P Pmags. A friend picked up a Bomber M733 at the same time which was very much the same story - They're both impossibly gorgeous, extremely well put together and overall thoroughly awesome. 

     

     

    *edit* Bladerunner got it spot on as usual!

  14.  

     

    Just food for thought! I really wish I had a mill :)

     

     

    So do I, and I imagine so does everyone else with an Airsoft AR AEG ever. Shapeways perhaps?

     

    Hell, failing that, suggest it to a manufacturer, Madbull would be my recommendation - That's a fantastic idea, looks very well executed, and NEEDS to be made.

  15. I cant justify paying that much for a sight. Half the time I look just over it anyway so they are just really for show. Plus for that kinda cash you could get another gun!!

     

    What a sport hey..

     

     

    See this is a common thing that comes up - I use my dot sight, I've got it zeroed accurately, and I actively aim with it. I've gone through probably 20 G&P or other brand replica optics, which is probably close to £800 spent on toy optics which I've then sold on or have broken.

     

    £400 would have bought me an R/S Eotech and a lens protector, which would still be with me today. So really, because of cheaping out with replica optics, I've actually away £400...

  16. Only a mere $575 with an appropriate QD mount. Itd go well with my RMR and TR24.

     

    My name is Rob and I have a problem. :)

     

     

     

    About US$570 (seen them as low as $550), Amazon USA were selling one with an A.R.M.S mount for about $650, don't know if they still doing it.

     

    Edit - QDR got there first  :D

     

     

    Well *fruitcage*. I thought being reasonably old they'd be cheaper... Oh well, G&P Aimpoint will have to do for now :(
