  1. Used to run these commonly at Eletrowerkz, First game of the month was "hardcore night" and the last game was "oldschool night". Hardcore night encouraged boxmags, mostcarts and thunderflashes* And the Oldschool night had quite a few limits but mainly no moscarts, and a maximum carried 300 BBs per player. This ammo limit included all equipment, pistol mags, speedloaders and the rest.
    Bear in mind this is an extremely tight CQB site and you would be in contact for pretty much the whole gametime, and each game would be 10-30 minutes depending on what gametype was being played. 300 rounds was few enough that you really did have to limit your shooting volume, but still high enough that you probably didn't ran out of ammo unless they got carried away. At a different site with different styles of play you should choose your ammo limit to match.

    Kit or ammo restrictions can be used to make an interesting change to how your games play out. It can also be used by snobs who want to stifle the enjoyment of others, so it should be done wisely with the intention to improve the game.



    *they were specially made to be quiet due to the location being in the middle of London.

  2. Royal Mail prohibit pressure containers, even if empty, and they have destroyed components even though that's not against their rules specifically. People who send stuff with whatever ritual are banking on RM not checking the package.

     

    Other couriers may have different rules so you'll have to look those up.

  3. Polycarb is the way to go. I salvaged the visor from a 'used' motorbike helmet and fitted that to my torch back in the Eletrowerkz days, that thing got hit *a lot* and never showed any signs of cracks. Just unthread the original glass, cut the polycarb to fit, and thread it back in.

  4. So long as it works, and you have a few mags, a TM 552 is going to be just fine. Don't get caught up in *needing* the latest and greatest. power limits are still basically the same, most players still can't set a hop properly and TMs always had decent range to begin with.

    That said there's a crazy selection of cool stuff if you do want to get new kit. I've not been keeping up to date all that well (except for shotguns :D )

  5. Literally any 1911 variant. I've had... gak, what 6 or 7 of them?

    I also quite like the hicappa but the mag incompatibility stops me from moving over (basically I'm poor and can't buy any mags right now)

    Essentially the only real thing that the 1911 gives that other TM pistols don't is the trigger movement. Almost all triggers in all airsoftguns/firearms are rocking triggers, and that's just not how my fingers work. The 1911 is an inline trigger, and that is a movement my finger can match.

    I also had a play with the ye olde TM Desert Eagle not long ago, very very nice. If only for the trigger...

  6. They are often the cheapest thing the manufacturer could outsource. Not always, but often. They are probably intended to be worn when plinking to protect from ricochets rather than direct shots. 

    I would always recommend a full seal goggles rather than 'shooting glasses' as I have seen too many times a shot will come in from an angle (like when you raise your head to shout "hit") and hit around the eye/eyelid/the eye directly.

    It's just a mock up, now a meme. To really work I'd have to cut the shells down the size of Aguila Minis which leaves them to hold 1bb. Box mag will be ditched as the magwell width itself is barely enough to fit the shell rim. Manually operated slide of course, but to make it cycle automatically I'm thinking of plugging the barrel and making the shell and chamber act as the nozzle and blow back chamber.

    Or make it a single shot, but with the original magazine and blowback unit. (maybe take the feedlips off). Make an extractor and it might even eject properly. then you chuck  in another shell and hit the slidelock.

    I've been on here for ages, can't actually remember the exact year I joined but I'm pretty sure I was on here when I was at university and that was pre-2006. Still come here for advice on technical stuff and to see of Renegade Cow has built anything new. I don't really post on FB airsoft groups, partly because I don't really want it linked to my facebook profile too heavily for a variety of reasons, and partly because the level of discourse on a lot of facebook groups is beyond idiotic. 

    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?)
