    Anyone still around from the old days?

    Anyone want to play within a handful of KM of Milton Keynes? Could get another meetup going.

    I didn't stop playing because I got old, I stopped playing because I don't have any friends to go anywhere with.

    I remember it well, it was July 9, 2006 when you joined (No I didn't look it up on your profile, what you talkin bout?) joined. one of 5 users. It's a start.

    On Building Light Weight 4.3 1911

    Let me correct my original post: I also have a TM hicappa that's been through a couple thousand rounds on green and it's stock except for the magazine gas routs. IMO, buy a TM brand TM 1911 or hicappa, and use green.... and... that's it, enjoy.

    The frame doesn't care what gas you put in it. Green gas is what I've been feeding my TM 1911 for years now and there's no sign of any damage except for where I've dropped it (and even that's just scratches on the outside)

    Airsoft sightings in Movies and TV shows thread 2

    Torchwood WAS mentioned in the first thread, repeatedly. Even a bunch of people made torchwood hicappas. Those were the days.

    Metal hop arm for ICS SA80?

    Strange. I wasn't able to send them a message or interact with the account at all. I'll try again.

    Metal hop arm for ICS SA80?

    I have considered this, but because the part where it bends is around a 90° angle, it's a mechanical weak point. I could put re-enforcement into the peg as you suggest, but the body of the hop arm still bends. I have also considered combining re-enforcing the peg with epoxying a metal plate to the body of the hop arm, but even then, there is 90° between the peg and the body so I'm convinced it will still bend. I also don't want to try to modify it until I have a replacement. Not that it's usable right now... If I can't get a metal one I will eventually turn to re-enforcing the existing one.
  10. Whilst I do love my ICS L86, it's basically been in unusable condition since I got it. The hop is always pressed down too far, even for heavy BBs because the plastic hop arm bends and presses down too far. I've been searching for a metal hop arm for a while and all I can find is a dead e-bay account called arbitraryambitions. I wonder if they are still making/selling them or if there is a better option somewhere else. Does anyone know of an existing metal hop arm for the ICS sa80, or, more likely, does anybody have skill with machine tools who can quote me to build one?

    ICS L86 A2

    I keep finding reference to the same one that seems to be discontinued. My 86 is basically dead until I find one or manage to make my own.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    The female is human, ya plebs. And yes, I do struggle with people so it was quite the accomplishment, for me, don't take that away.

    I finished my nerf flamer, spoke to an actual female, and my new job is working with robots. Coolness.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    I've had something in the post for over 3 months now, given up on it completely.

    ICS L86 A2

    Actually yes, you are correct there. The A1 had a few different mag release styles but when they introduced the A2 there was a metal piece welded to the outside to protect it. There are also variants of the trigger that changed over the years so you might find A1s with different triggers but all the A2s have the same later design trigger.
