    Recomission an old AEG.

    Battery did hold charge. Test fired now, battery lasted around 100 shots, this is both good and bad. Good = gun cycled, and dry fired, then fired actual ammo...... it's alive ! Bad = battery is dead, expected that anyway. 2 of the 8.4v have taken "some" charge, one is showing as dead on the charger. 2x 9.6v to try next. ROF came in at 650 on the knackered 1100mah 8.4 kinda as i remember, the 1500/1600mah turned over around 720rpm, the real UMP is around the 630rpm area anyway. FPS not too bad, no idea what the hop is set for, could have been .28/.25/.20 BB's. Tested with .20 and ranged from 322-344 with a random 350.1 and some low 290 as the bb hit the side of the chrono. Seems higher FPS than i remember but memory could have been Site chronos reading lower than my chrono so the 315-320 could have been last game site chrono test. Still, not too shabby and i expect things have dried out inside so a bit of variance on FPS to be expected. Looking like a damn good service and deep clean and new hop rubber and new batteries and good to game

    Recomission an old AEG.

    About 5years ago i was moving across the country. I sold off the pistols, they went instantly. Some interest but no takers for my STAR AEG, and i had decided to keep the shotgun anyway. So the shotgun is still in a sealed brand new carton as i sold off the one i was playing with but kept the new one and a broken one for spares. The AEG just went into storage, the charger was playing up. Last chrono was around 315-320fps. Dug the charger and batterys out a while ago but have just got round to getting a new charger. 1x battery had leaked. 5 others appear in good order...... So far what may be a 10 year old stick has charged for a few hours and is showing as "green" will try it out tomorrow as i charge another up. Might get lucky but leaving NIMH's for years most likely will have ruined them. Step 1 charge all the things. Step 2 power up the AEG and see if it still works..... only need power to test not to play all day. Step 3 find chrono and see what fps is like after years in storage. Will hop rubber have perished. Step 4 Restart the plan for S-UMP and rebuild. (intergrated silencer) Seems things have changed, the forum is very quiet now, like many others. Lipos are way cheaper, TM pistols are really spendy now, youtube is rather good with sniper player videos, and Umarex appear to have cloned the STAR/ARES varient of UMP which is handy as from memory DE and G&G would swap mags but STAR was a different fit. And hop nubs and rubbers and hop-type has moved on again. Should have kept the TM MK23 as seems to be buyable mods for that now as well.

    Old one coming back to the fold....... (me) Dear newbie, this lot will gladly spend money (yours) on things you must have the pastime is as cheap or spendy as you want to make it. This forum is a wealth of buried information, as already advised look around, the picture threads will waste many many many hours Find the right sub fourm and ask away on technical things (after trying the forum search engine). Ideal first step though, find a local game site that does day rental. Go run around the woods like a loon with a rental M4 and stout boots and jeans and a hoody........ and start there.....

    Ditch the silencer, add maybe a FAB Defense grip/magwell and a handfull of 40rd mags and some nice .30 bb's and i would primary that 1911 Do like the iron sights, nice work, very nice as have it.

    Pictures of you in the field or at a game

    AK needs a hello kitty sticker to be complete Looking at your Sig pic and at that photo....... makes sense I have a question though, other players get the right hump when they get capped at range by a pistol, do players you bag also have to leave and avoid forums for a week to avoid ridicule from team mates and so called friends. Keep up the outstanding maverick work old chap

    Glock Picture Thread

    All this talk of red dot sights...... couldn't resist the urge to drop this in here Mostly lurk in the quieter parts of the forum, thought i might cross over here for a change. My TM G17 FrankenGlock, with extra red dot sight awesomeness for those long range shots. Started life as a G17c, shop swapped top halfs and removed C extras as they had a special on Tan G17's when i bought it, and when i ordered, they had sold out so made one for me. Picked up the TM magwell at a later date, still worked out way cheaper than buying a 17c in the first place. Nineball 5.1 6.03x112.5(1911/hi-cappa) inner barrel, shimmed to fit outer barrel. Stock outer barrel, sleeved and extended, was built around a 120mm inner, but 5.1" = equals slide size and not overall inner barrel length, so it's 112.5mm inner. Nineball purple hop rubber. Hop unit honed faces and polished but stock TM Recoil guide rod, polished but stock TM Lightened BBU but still a stock TM part Action alloy vented piston head (1911 part, tight fit works well) Guarder alloy slide (more weight to lose there) replaced the stock TM plastic slide that only lasted 2 years on Green gas, some fittment issue's, BBU sits a fraction lower, so all contact surfaces have had a polish. FAB Defense USM scope mount, with the old type Walther Top point red dot sight, bit more durable than some other dot sights, bit chunky but i am more of a function over fashion kind of chap. Magazines have Magpul speed plates and polished BB feed tracks. Been short stroked, but for gaming i prefer to have the slide lock back over counting shots, settled on a inner frame mounted recoil buffer instead. Trigger is stock, but has been short stroked to remove most of the dead pull. Stock TM night sights on slide, filed down rear sight to allow the slide to be removed with out taking off the scope mount, sometimes need a quick mid game relube as i use light oil on the slide for less friction over grease. It's no show pony, and maybe not as pretty as some shooters in this thread, but it's taken aspects of the race gun world and gone more combat racer, might get an extended mag catch and i hear Nineball are doing Glock fit gas routers so might get some of them. I play pistol only a lot, so it gets worked hard, 600-800rds a day, it has a not so modified third hand TM G17 as back up or for those moments when dual Glocks are better than one. If TM made a G34 i would have just bought that instead

    G&G GBBR CM16

    Any photos of internals ? Any chrono results ? Curious about whats inside this one, have they sort of dropped the workings of a pistol in the M4 body. They seem cheap enough to almost warrant having a go

    Nice attention to details Mobius. To think that cutting edge laser back then can now be crammed into a guide rod or small grip pod, how things have moved on (remembers the big old box lasers )

    M14 Picture Thread

    Ta frogfish, will look into it, kinda hit my photo limit for now so more later. Getting chrono'ed at the weekend so will find out what gain a clean up has made. Rather than just drop in a bigger spring i want to see what i can do with the hop first, after reading some of the technical debates on this forum that seems to be the way to go. The stock CA Nub is very soft and had little effect with .2 & .25 i suspect due to dirt everywhere. Never thought about an AEG this big, i was bought up on Mk4 Enfields, the M14 has that classic rifle feel to it, like an old friend, nice balance too, just needs dialing in now

    M14 Picture Thread

    Mines a "work in progress" Got it with no cleaning rod, second hand but hardly used but never been cleaned. Had my first play a few weeks back, and while it is a quiet running gearbox, nice rate of fire it was lacking a bit. Tried playing with the hop to increase the range but no joy. Now after a strip down... the barrel was filthy and needed 14 patches run through it, now clean and shiny, the air nozzle had greasy ###### on it and the the hop rubber too, there appears to be slight wear to the rubber lip as well. So swapped out a TM rubber from my other AEG, PTFE taped the hop-unit and instant performance gain. Before it would only dent a coke can, now it goes through, was running at 280fps before, so a gain there. With a good cleanout i hope the hop will have more effect now, i reckon all the dirt was screwing it up, retest at the weekend so see how it goes. I have a CA Scout any hot choice on a new nub and hop rubber, was looking at the Madbull rubber/nub sets any one tried them ?
