    WE Colt Junior

    The next question is, if WE double it like they seem to do to everything, will you adapt the rig to hold a double one too?

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Got stricken with the good old "pocket behind wisdom tooth removal area that never gets fully sealed decided to get infected again" case, just as I was looking forward to going out tonight with my fellow workers to the local eatery/bowling alley. The cyma 40d ak105 arrived, and under the excuse of checking to see if it was damaged I got to open the box and inspect it. I am a bit worried about its origins though, as despite it have the sight block pin removable and there isn't 4 screws underneath ala tm style, there are a few things that puzzle me. One is that it has two additional screws below that seem to, alongside the screws holding the hop up block togther, secure the hop up to the metal barrel portion inside the receiver (which brings to mind the older styles of assembly). Another point of concern is the fuse. On most cyma models and in every video of the cm40 family of models, the fuse is the automotive type. The fuse inside is of the cylinder type inside a black plastic protector however, which doesn't add up. In short, I am led to believe that this is either some sort of older stock version of the vfc style cyma with an older gearbox inside in turn, or the store in question has swapped bits about. I'm trying to find imagery of the Lancer tactical rebrands internals to see if perhaps it is one of them but not in one of their boxes. EDIT: Upon further reading apparently the vfc style cymas have lct trunnion assembly mishmash, which explains what I saw save for the fuse.
  3. From reddit thread: http://www.arms-cool.net/forum/thread-187720-1-1.html BREN... I almost regret buying another kalash yesterday.

    I'm the sick *bramston pickle* that would rather be working all of Christmas than having it off like I am forced to. Two fuses were blown, a 30amp one for the heater, and a radio one in the back seat, spent most of the morning checking every fuse box. Of course, that still leaves the question of why the battery failed mother despite reading as still in good shape, and how she got the left turn blinker to stay on long enough to attract a pull over by a local cop (tested it several times myself and nothing happening). If there is indeed a short in the module for them, it going to be a pain to get said module out given how cramp the car is. Hope the weather prevails for you Scorch so you two can stay together. I'd still advocate to stay with her over family, but that just my jaded cynical self typing.

    VFC MPX GBB?!

    Now if only 9x39 kalash options would pop up from this market direction. Also, is it just me, or does this look like the perfect base for a Bolter prop?

    Was all set to go to a game tomorrow, local field was unexpectedly holding another game despite the last one being the supposed last game for the year. Except my mother took my car out and manage to kill the battery somehow, and then my father managed to in the process of jumping it kill the heating and dashboard systems. Too dark out to look at all the fuses and electrical measures. Truck doesn't have the space to hold everything (no cover for the back), and her car is burning oil and can't risk it also failing. Overall just depressed and angry. So much for salvaging this bday weekend.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Sis got me a $50 amazon card for my bday yesterday, and this morning I thought "Well, I know evike and other shops sell on amazon too..." and sure enough, I found the cyma 40d ak105 on there for same price as evike's own store and I am heavily tempted right now to click the shiny buttons. I reckon it would kill two birds with one stone: use the card up, and have something the family can pretend they got for me under the tree. Heck, I might be able to convince them to cover it all in the end. Edit: Folks agreed, get to click shiny buttons without a personal conscious.
  8. For anyone who can decipher this horrible shop's website listings, is this a rebranded cyma 40b vfc style ak105, or one of the tm models and they just cannot put correct picture up?  For some odd reason they have this cheaper than the cyma 40b reband by itself, which has me immediately suspicious.  If it is the vfc style, it kinda beats out the non rebrand offers elsewhere and I might be tempted to jump on it.  http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/21465-cyma-airsoft-ak-105-aeg-full-metal-side-folding-stock-black.aspx

    Oddly enough, this place has 100 series front ends for sale, but for some reason they decide their "free" shipping does not apply to them.

      I am inclined to believe the former on the basis that the item code for the rifle in their shopping cart menu is LT-740D which corresponds with lancer's rebrand of the cm40 models iirc.

      NVM, their site will not even let me go to checkout because something is out of stock despite showing everything in stock.

    Now, how do you combine the two.

    Wish I could tune out the radio at work with my phone and some headphones, but have to be able to hear what I can despite the noise of the machines and said radio blaring, and something about laws and company policy. Today was Christmas music day, I heard the Chipmunks song at least twice... Took tomorrow off to watch dog for last possible time for awhile, and going to be utterly bored all day most likely. I've spent most of this evening staring at the rare stuff that I have an interest in getting that is actually stateside and not wallet breaking, but it all either wrong size either potentially too small/big, missing bits hard to get as well, or shipping killing it.
  11. So, it is only just now that I have heard of ICS making a Makarov.  Apparently first shown back in 2016, has anyone heard more about it?

      Probably canned after seeing low sales of the WE, KSC, and KWC models combined despite years of people begging for one.

      It almost feels like the KWA length of tease since I just saw an image of the ics model in one of HyperDouraku's MOA posts.

      You're right, but not to be a Debbie Downer, it says it's an NBB.

    Ah, I didn't realize it used plastic mags. Still kinda sad no one went further with the zb26 that came out. Should have grabbed one when they were cheaper.

    Thanks for the chat everyone. Trying to keep my mind together with hopefully getting Winston recovered, but it a long process. I took today off work to watch him and two days next week. My folks got into such a heated spout though one night that I started thinking I had to find an apartment for me and my mother to get away from my father but so far they seem to be simmering down again. On another note, blew money on the wrong motor type for my seemingly futile repair works, bit irritated at my stupidity there.

    Not going to lie, I expected the magazine to be the same color.

    Gunmane's Gearbox Woes

    Can confirm now that changing the cut off lever to an shs one did jack squat, still no semi functionality for said lct gearbox. In fact, the shs CoL screw does not like to behave well with the lct gearbox shell, which caused much frustration. Probably going to see if this one qsc gearbox shell I never got together to work functionally will do so, and if need be toss it into one kalash and toss said kalash gearbox into the rpk. Just plain ridiculous this all is.
