  1. Does anyone who owns a cyma/s&t pattern bizon and has a hicap for it know who to open the front lid to fill it instead of the latch?  I've heard about it being a better method but have yet to figure out how to do it to the hicap that just arrived today (midcaps never worked out for me despite having multiple and I kinda wanna try the hicap after seeing some recent Japanese players use one).

    From what I have heard over the last decade, regular splintertarn has popped up in gorka and even more rarely sumrak form, but it was always a custom order to SSO/SPOSN by either someone who contacted them directly or had a seller do so (some French seller on ebay had a bunch made up before). Splintertarn caps by SSO/SPOSN are commercially sold by various sellers at times. Blumentarn gorkas likely the same case, with some regional units ordering them from "SLAVYANKA" company at one point (there is a listing for a demiseason suit on ebay right now actually for high price). Sumpftarn afaik only done by BARS for the contract and limited commercial runs of this suit, but I heard once on a review of the commercial version of this suit (I think on a Polish site) that SSO made some suits in it for the contract, but never seen actual evidence of it. I am sure if you have a contact over there willing to go the distance to find the material or somehow has enough clout to get an order from one of the companies in between all the military orders, it can be done.

    Figured I would wait till both items arrived (and when the hat arrived I would have summoned Tink via triple posting) so here we go. BARS contract sumrak suit in "steppe" aka sumpftarn from Demych and matching Kepi from another seller. Both arrived far sooner than I expected. Should have snagged this pattern years ago but was at the time hesitant to do business overseas, but glad it all worked out in the end and I have my favorite pattern of all time finally. *suitcasey* pictures ahoy, knockoff raybans and weekend grungeface included (I had a frustrating time putting a door handle on front door for the folks prior to delivery due to stripped screws on original handle and constantly having to stop to swat hornets that flew in).

    I recall some folks already making custom drill models using it already.

    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.

    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.

    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.
