  1. As the title says, I was wondering if anyone has seen LCT's conversion kits around still. I remember when places like WGC had a bunch of them but now it seems either LCT has stopped making them or most shops I know of stopped carrying them. I am in the mindset now where I almost rather but such a kit to stuff my own ramshackle parts into rather than buy another full replica.

    Frankly I am sad no one has asked for a Marui themed one yet.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Good day out on the field across state, though the humidity and muck were quite the obstacles. Sadly the accursed rpk decided to have one motor soldering break off so I didn't get to run it, ak104 got most use again (I honestly think it beats out my aks74). Also seemed to have lost a set of pyramex i force goggles (if any luck someone found them).

    As someone who lost his mother's mother back in March, I know too well the feeling Tink. I grew distant from both side's grandparents over the years (to the point of disgust towards both really) but it still is a suckerpunch that doesn't go away.

    LCT EBB prototypes - MP5, SCAR H, M16, G3, CQBR

    Nothing on the models besided the east bloc ones, but I see WGC has ebb versions of all the aks and whatnot on "special order" now. Honestly rather be able to just buy a full external kit now but alas that era is over.

    Guess GGO collab still going strong for TM. Was kinda hoping maybe a pkm or something would magically pop out but oh well, maybe in 5 years something will attract me again.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Good time at the local field again today, despite a nasty knock on the head from someone who seems to love shooting bursts to the head. Ran around mostly with the ak104/5 as the bizon did not want to work with the pbs-1 well in short barrel form (and seemed to be acting up hop up wise) and my old aks-74 frankenstein decided to lose it's trunnion pin into the muck somewhere at start of first game. Debating whether to take the pin out of the backup 74mn or transfer all the guts over to that one instead (since the aks-74 receiver hole is likely worn out too much). Pulled off some fantastic flanking towards the end of the day.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Good to hear shmook! Work busy as well (in the less positive way for me, my back!) but I figure I gotta make enough to fund my failures at gearbox tech work somehow (just ordered another mosfet unit to replace the nukefet that likely fried from the accident earlier this weekend.) I also still not had schnitzel with noodles sadly.

    Any risk at all is still risk one should not take with that matter. Besides things going to hell again in the homestead, I managed to kill one of my good stick lipos trying to test rpk gearbox in receiver (should have used one of the butterfly ones instead). Not sure if the mosfet unit itself is fried too, must have been a pinch in the wiring somewhere, ending up cutting most of the excess now in attempt to make it a top wire set instead. Seriously fack trying to run wire to the buttstock, LCT doesn't understand receivers any better than century arms does.

    LCT Conversion Kits, Where Did They Go?

    I suppose that is the case. Shame really. I managed to get the inner barrel out of my messed up rpk model with the stripped screw I cannot dislodge and kinda thought about seeing if the rpk74mn kits were still around (and aks75/ak74mn kits to replace my old dboys/cyma hybrids). What parts are around seem to be geared towards that whole "modular" concept they keep toting about with on social media.

    huh, perhaps I haven't updated to the latest version or something, since mine are all on still. I assume you cannot re-enable them from the firefox control tabs?

    MP18 AEG

    https://www.octagonairsoft.com/product-page/octagon-airsoft-mp18-kugelspritz-smg-aeg-real-wood-stock This place just says "Flintlock Workshop" but I thought octagon was a brand in itself. My guess is probably one of the companies that tend to do this like viva arms, S&T, etc.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Fantastic day out at the local field, weather was great (may have gotten sunburn a bit, was expecting dreary cloud cover and rain), and we had a great turnout. Rolled with a few players from a team called Combat Junkies, of which one was given use of a microgun all day and it was a blast. Bizon with extended barrel setup worked nicely, though hop was a bit wonky at times, still need to figure out settings for different weights. Cyma 40d worked as usual, though I was arcing many a shot to try and reach out to people. Only bummer was finding that the lonex chamber+flathop modded G&G green bucking combo I had put in the main kalash resulted in utter failure (talking 20 ft max with no hop applied), going to have to see if it the bucking or the chamber specifically, or else back to what it had before again. Other slightly humorous note: Sumrak pants so big on me now that even when tied tight they kept losing retention and sliding down around my knees. Think I might have lost too much weight lately. Already thinking of stuff to go sink a paycheck into again.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    PBS-1 replica arrived for my Bizon. Had to dremel out a bit on the end (and fight the gearbox again after having to take it out to put longer inner barrel in). Despite being non-steel it still got a bit of heft to it and oddly enough makes the bizon front heavy somewhat now (which is what most folks assume the bizon on its own to be when it isn't airsoft wise). I'm sure the longer barrel won't play nice with the cylinder but hey, maybe it will drop the fps down low enough again to make it 5 ft MED again.

    Everything else lately has gone to complete *suitcase* (current car not starting so forced to drive truck about, folks constantly fighting, etc.), but I did manage to shave that G&G Green bucking I had sitting about down to work as a flat hop bucking via my dremel. I just installed it along with a lonex hop up unit and my prommy barrel into my main kalash and hopefully it might work (can't really test it at home). I also found a spare tightbore of unknown brand (I want to guess zci) in the closet of the same ak74 length, so if something I mentioned in another thread shows up and actually works, I might have a use for it.

    Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    Nothing worth taking pics of atm as I am currently waiting on a second shipment from airsoftgi (I decided to splurge a bit twice within a week of doing so the first time). First shipment was two more Bizon midcaps (sadly not the nice rubber textured one that came with my cyma long ago, but they lock in just fine) another rpk 45 rounder (since I am finding that some of them do fit my cyma ak104/5 and they are nice to have) some Elite Force .28g bbs to test in all my replicas, a lonex hop up chamber to test. I am awaiting on a cheap aluminum pbs-1 replica and some more .28s (G&G this time). I have the silly notion of putting in a longer barrel in the bizon if the pbs-1 actually gets onto the threads (though am concerned about the cylinder with it being ported, and I really do not want to open the gb again to change out cylinders).
  19. Got this from a reddit post discussion, but anyone with better ears to the ground can comment on this?  Supposedly G&G making a type 64 replica:

      Doesn't look like the one by S&T at any rate

    LCT AK12

    I watched airsoftology unboxing of it earlier, wasn't too impressed. Apparently they still put standard ak dust cover tab on gearbox despite it not opening up the same. Had they made it with a new gearbox shell at least or anything else I'd look at it more positively (lack of any burst option as well is sad). I've also heard they just used a standard 74 receiver on it. Having had nothing but trouble with my RPK from them I'm staying well clear of this.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    I saw a few of the TWI ones at the last rec game I went to, kinda want to get some. I do love running the cyma 40 rounder midcaps in my ak100 carbine. Quick question, but what is the consensus on PBS-1 replicas out there atm, and anyone got experience with one for the cyma bizon? I kinda been having the odd thought today of getting one for mine and possibly taking the stock brass barrel of an ak74 model out of storage, build a hop up setup for it, and basically have two barrel sets (not sure if I would have to change cylinders but hoping not).
  22. Spent most of the weekend trying to tackle this accursed gearbox for my rpk. The new wire harness set had one of the contacts break so after getting the old set back in to at least have it function again I run into more problems. *suitcase* phone imagery ahoy! https://i.imgur.com/AU6BAZA.mp4 Forward/Safe position: What would be semi: In the safe and full auto position the motor gets power; in the semi auto position I get nothing but the ever familiar click. Now, if I push the selector plate past what the selector gears would push it, the plate pushes up against the cutoff lever nub and lifts it back up again and the motor would receive power. Motor height is fine, sector gear is engaging with the cutoff lever, trolley is making regular contact, everything seems fine every time for the past two days I have taken it apart and put it back together. Earlier I even looked at it with the piston assembly out and found that as long as the motor height was just right it would fire semi fine but if a bit low the cutoff lever would get stuck at some point until I moved the selector plate back into safe/full auto position. I'm at a loss, my hands are cut up to hell, and I am down my rpk for one of the last games of the year. Edit: After two more attempts, I have managed to get it to function in semi, but I have doubts it will stay that way by the time I get it back in the gearbox. I will probably keep this thread around for future gearbox rants if permitted. Edit: Put it into body, pull semi a few times, all good, shift to auto, to safe, then back to semi, back to square one again. *fruitcage* LCT.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Airsoft yesterday did not go as well as the weekend before, and it kinda dampened my enthusiasm. Nothing seemed to really have effective use all day, we had 130+ people at one point so it was a bit too chaotic for a rec game, etc. The main kalash just doesn't feel like it is lobbing anything decently, the rpk still isn't really a lmg, and the ak104/5 kept shooting to the right (and I know I have the hop up chamber centered on it). Then on the way home my 2002 buick lesabre's belt broke and so I lost power to most things whilst on the highway, much fun there. Dad had me park at some gas station he knew off and went to get another belt and we struggled far too long to get it on, only for it too imediately snap before I go a mile. Ended up trying to coast it home. I can only guess it is the tension pulley considering I just pried it off and the bearings in it are all broken. Will have to see if a replacement fixes the issue of the belt smoking and then breaking instantly. All in all a *suitcase* weekend.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    The big question is, who gets to run Customs and let all the airsoft in without hassle?
  25. Anyone with a LCT RPK/74 got any imput on barrel length?  I hear about the barrel being too long and folks going for shorter ones or getting "bore up" kits, yet others that say its fine just get another hop up. 

    1. DrAlexanderTobacco


      I had @DarkLite put a 640mm in mine the other day - will let you know what performance is like when I skirmish with it!

    2. Gunmane


      Are you running a suppressor replica on it or something?  The longest I heard for mine was 610mm stock barrel...

    3. Gunmane


      any updates?  I managed to get my model's stock barrel out and it is indeed 610mm.
