    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    I do feel like the fire selector markings should say "Explosion!, More Explosions!, and ####!" , the latter for safe obviously.

    Ah no, it not the lipos themselves, just the process I went through to get the wire sets installed. I finally got the one to shoot semi whilst in receiver just now, and redid the bizon gearbox earlier this morning. That one is all stock so it didn't have as much trouble getting back together. Almost debated putting a non-ported cylinder in since I use .25 in it normally, but decided to leave as is (oddly enough both the gearbox shell and the cylinder are ported). Just waiting on the super glue to set on the hopup arm and flat nub before I start the "fun" part of seeing how to get the bizon back together. I figure the results will be interesting to see since the bizon receiver internal size makes the hop up on always by default by nearly half length. I am wondering whether or not a short female deans to males deans connector might be in order for the full stock kalash, as the wiring is just short enough inside the stock to make battery connecting/disconnecting a bit finicky. Version 3 are all I have ever worked on, but yeah, save for the trigger unit they are the best.

    So you saying you can hide a bro after a game in it, when he doesn't want to go home to the significant other.

    Somehow managed to break a gearbox shell, bit frustrated all day dealing with this *suitcase*. Currently using the rear wire set for my full stock kalash, but for some inexplicable reason, it will only shoot semi when not in the receiver, the moment I have everything together, even with selector parts set to semi and held that way through the entire process, it goes back to full auto only. Already making me regret this whole lipo switch over, and I fear just swapping out the front wire sets on the bizon might do the same *suitcase* to me. Going off to work out to try and collect myself, but dear Gott has this made never want to open up another aeg ever again. I've given up on converting the rpk simply out of spite for lct's screw system. If I ever buy another replica, I want it deans by default and able to take down without wanting to smash my head into a wall.
  5. I just wish they or other folks would do something that takes either ak mags (that isn't just a bullpup kit) or something 308 that isn't AR pattern magazine (g3 or fal). I kinda had hope that the folks that made that XR-5 rifle would have expanded the model into a series that included such options. I kinda also want to imagine what would happen if TM combined their hopup fairy dust with flat hop.

    Cannot stand the pallets we use at work. Always prone to breaking and getting wood splinters everywhere. Got the kalash gearbox wire set redone. Realized why the modify flat hop I had installed on the promy barrel refuses to settle right, the barrel opening may be too small or some other matter is causing the nub to tilt over to one side when hop up arm is pressed inwards. Superglued the nub to the arm to see if maybe it was just shifting on its own. Not sure I even want to tackle getting the rpk gearbox out. Bit worried the flat hop nub also won't fit its stock barrel knowing my luck.

    Had a good time across state at my old airsoft stomping grounds. Good weather, nice and cool at times though sadly the sun decided to stay out and make me sweat more than I thought I would. Frakenstein kalash refused to run so RPK and Bizon all day. Most memorably moments were taking out 3 people who had snuck around to our spawn atop a hill and didn't realize after taking out the few other folks that I was just putting away my killrag to respawn (I went semi with the RPK at appropriate distance and then accepted the bang kill their fourth guy who had been standing around trying to reload ended up pulling on me with a pistol), and a moment when my Bizon decided to lock up on semi as I was nonchalantly walking up to the blind side of a defender in a reverse 300 style game. Pretty sure that caused most of the welts on my left side. Hopefully I get to see some photos to share with folks here at some point.
  8. Hyper Douraku's page on event has been up for awhile. http://www.hyperdouraku.com/event/praraji1809/index.html That Hicapa AEP (at least I think it is) new magazine had me in stitches. The last portion has "Prototypes" but not the usual clay model handguns we are used to seeing (like the vp10 further up the page). Not sure what they are on over there atm but I assume it must be good stuff.

    Accucell 6 80w version. Dumbass me didn't put 2 & 2 together and realize it needed adapters for the deans connectors on the batteries and the dc jack power supply. Can be remedied but annoying none the less.

    Boxes they came in have a label saying "Warning, shipped at 30 percent charge, return to storage charge asap," Of course, in my bumbling idiocy I forgot to get adaptors for both the powersupply and the batteries themselves for the xt 60 plugs the charger uses... Gott Verdammt do I hate my brain sometimes. To top it all off there is a dead mouse in the wall next to bed so awful smell for weeks ahead.

    Fitness / Phys. & Supplements?

    I find my legs give out before my arms do regardless of my increase in exercise in the past year. Figure I got too many tiny tears throughout them that refuse to heal. Usually on game day the adrenaline I can never get at any other time keeps me going till I get home and then I became a hobbling mess for awhile.

    Ja, I bought all the goodies from HobbyKing, so I have the alarms and balance charger. Wiring sets don't come till Monday and I figured I can at least check out what condition they are currently in till then. Despite my supposed youth I just feel old and figure I'll probably *fruitcage* something up if I leave them be atm, or do so regardless.

    Reminds me of the old wooden one my father gave me as a keepsake years ago, and the other one he has stuffed away in some container. I've found out with great sadness that whilst the lipo batteries and kit for them might arrive today, the wire sets I bought and whatnot will not be here till at the earliest monday, which means I don't get to spend the evening after work trying to switch two aegs over to lipo in time for game tomorrow. I assume I should at least get the lipos into a storage state via the charger's storage mode right?

    Sometimes I just wonder what goes on for procurement in my workplace. Spent most of the day boxing up Meringue powder that they don't have an order for yet but are having us run it anyways "as preparation." 800 boxes and we are not even halfway done yet... According to my coworkers there has been times in the past where they did stuff like this and the company ended up getting burned. Legs keep tearing up no matter what I do stretch or workout wise. As for coups to put Stunt in charge, I've always fancied myself a Militarist. Course, over here it would never go well as general opinion among folks in and out is of a rotting core, much like with everything else.
  15. Doesn't seem like it would ever gain traction then sadly. I would love a Saiga just to have something with tri barrels to run around in Partizan SS with that at least somewhat matches. Oddly enough, in what vids I do watch of Japanese airsofters lately, there is far less TM models and more foreign manufacturers in both the youtuber and other players hands. I suppose that is just a small slice of the scene over there, but it looks quite different now to me.
