    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Recent arrivals that sadly made me more depressed than helped with the drain the "emergency" 11 hour shifts have done to me this week and for next week. Set of LCT "Olive Drab" ak74 furniture and two npo refurbished real ak74 mag midcaps. The hand guard furniture (as I expected jadedly) does not fit my models unless I take a dremel to the furniture, and honestly I am sick of having to do that. The furniture itself seems a lot darker and more grey than expected honestly. I opened up one of the midcap packages, and whilst the weight of the mag felt nice, everything else was another matter. Rough finish to the top of the mag as expected, but I was saddened to find that it doesn't really fit my old dboys kalash frankenstein, nor does it fit my newer cyma ak105. The former it will seat somewhat but no solid engagement at the rear lip. It feels like despite no wobble a tap to it would knock it out. I doubt it will feed properly with how it sits in the reciever. The latter replica it would not go in at all. Top of the mag pic is in comparison to my cyma midcap. I really need to just spend money on video games again at this rate. ..

    There is also brands like Krytac and G&G that flat out sponsor events and groups in Japan, and I doubt they are only selling compliant models. A channel I've been watching videos the last few months has the main POV (there are several players that record together) flat out rocks a E&L ak.

    Originally could not get this grater heatshield from Khyber Custom to fit, but queue one *suitcase* job with a dremel and pliers to bend the edges of both ends earlier today. I recommend saving oneself the headache and just getting the LCT one instead, it was not worth the effort for the cost difference.

    Meanwhile I see hyperdouraku covered a mp18 and B&T APC9 replicas that seem to be under the radar, the latter of which I am surprised is not TM given the amount of "*fruitcage* licensing" trademarks all over it. I kinda figured TM would jump on that speedsoft train, considering I am already seeing those players pop up in videos I watch over there now.

    Sorry for the double post, but the neat detail from this suit is the bag for it being built in.

    VVZ Rainsuit in Izlom pattern. Saw it on ebay from a random US seller for 30 dollors, decided to snatch it up. Naturally it rather cheap material and I doubt the zippers will last long, but it nice to have something show up in the mail (besides another zci high torque motor for my collection). Gonna have to double post to share one neat concept I see from this suit.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Had my hand slammed by a 500lb drum yesterday at work, was still sore till late today. Was all excited when I got home to get this cheese grater upper handguard from Khyber Customs to put on my LCT RPK only to find that the edges are too flared out and wide in general to fit either its completely welded gastube or my dboys/cyma gastubes. What was supposed to save me $30 (LCT one goes for $60 here, this was $30 and higher quality to boot) is now a paperweight. I now fully expect my other stuff to arrive to all go wrong as well now. Also spent most of the day at work in a depressive rut that physically had me drained and kept getting nagged by coworkers as to why. It takes all my willpower to not tell them how much I want to die.

    Can guarantee it is still pot metal or at best aluminum. I wish I was excited for TM products, but between the lack of stores stocking them here (and the price hikes for those that do), the lack of anything enticing for me compared to replicas from other companies that use steel or other stronger components, etc. I just don't get the spark like it was many years past.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    I tried to go on a "eat only your lunch at work" plan, but the folks keep pushing food onto me even when I refuse, and start getting upset thinking I am doing it to spite them or trying to kill myself. Tub of lard I be then. Missing out on a game tomorrow due to the heat and my health being far worse than it was previously. Depression ahoy!

    Latest windows 10 update back on the 27th borked the audio on my laptop, and despite everything I have tried (reinstall audio drivers, update BIOS, attempt to uninstall the updates, a full clean install, etc.) nothing has resolved it, and what little answers I can find basically amount to "if nothing has worked, nothing you can do till the next update comes out that fixes that but borks something else up). My only way around it is with a headset on, but that is not exactly ideal for say wanting to work out whilst watching Japanese airsoft videos.

    Cyma indeed.
  12. Is Cyma the only company to make 7.62x39 akm polymer mags in black?  I kinda want to get that ak104 look at times, but it pains me that the cyma ones look a bit off and only a few shops (evike really afaik) carry them.

    The hero of last weekend's rec game, that in the hands of another took me down handily. I have the classic side mount and ultimak clone for an optic, but I honestly have no need for one and for the former it defeats my actual use of the folding stock (when *suitcase* tucked in tight trying to keep folks guessing where I am behind cover). I have fancied perhaps one of those vector pk-a clones though for display. Mag is the blue box brand midcaps that I've only seen a few shops sell (here really evike afaik). Fantastic feeding quality for something so cheap and light, just wish they had it in a more classic design. Wish I had a 11.1v that would fit it (my wiring and mosfet of choice does not leave much room under the cover) but it runs well enough on 7.4v.
  14. When that urge for a g3 SBS aka MC51 SD surges back from years ago, but you remember it a v2 and not a v3.  Sigh...

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    12: 52 am here as I type this. Just woke up from heat coma after resting from game on Saturday. Had a great time despite the sun trying to kill me. RPK ran with the Drum just fine (still shoots like *suitcase* and speedsofter with hpa tapped ar-9's outshoot me) but not having to carry anything but the replica was a nice change of pace for most of the day. Had another player I remember from previous games that could not get his gbbr working right and other misfortunes, so I loaned him my ak105 for the rest of the time he played. He loved it and kept saying it was slick, which made me smile since I was sure it wasn't going to work well having just changed the spring and one shim section on it recently (and the general gremlin curse all my stuff has). I ended up using it towards the end of the day and getting a few more kills (even against one of the hosts who became my shot trading partner for the last two games). Not sure I can handle another Summer game like that though, took a lot out of me despite my efforts of hydration prior and during it.
