    Pictures of your Plate Carriers

    Tyr, ATS and LBT all make small hydro carriers.
  2. FYI madbulls are known to have out of spec rails.
  3. After going through a few replica sights I just recently got one of these. To start with, it came from Hawaii to Michigan in about three days. That is seriously unbeatable for free shipping. Big props for that. As for the sight, I can only reaffirm what others have said. It's really bright, well built and has very minimal ghosting, which is only really visible if you have it all the way bright and you are in low light conditions. So far this one looks like a keeper for me.
  4. Anyone know how the quality of these sights compares to the new replica EXPS? I like the look of the EXPS better and for once the clones have the correct FDE finish, but function is still more important to me. I'm trying to decide between the two. This would be my third eotech replica and so far I haven't been altogether satisfied with either of the ones I've had. I currently have a 551 that is alright, ghosting isn't too bad, has real trades, but sometimes doesn't want to turn on, isn't very bright, and seems like it may have parasitic battery drain. edit: this is the EXPS I am refering to http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?products_id=5980

    As it has been said many times before coloration varies from batch to batch with both clones and the RS. The finish seems to be less consistent with the replicas, but I had a socom gear one that looked pretty much spot on. I never compared to to a real one, but from literally every picture I saw mine looked spot on. I have seen plenty of others that also look pretty much perfect, as well as plenty that just look awful.

    Ah, nice. I see some up for about $5 right now, only in black and ACU though. I may have to watch out for one in RG though. At the moment though I am mainly looking to hold one or two thunder b's up front rather than buddy ones on my back. I have one paraclete fb pouch already and it looks like it is about the same size, I just wanted to figure how I was going to carry them before I make the plunge on a couple thunder b's.

    Are those paraclete large FB pouches in that last pic frogfish? Any chance they hold thunder b's?

    Not a problem. Maybe you will find that the MP7 4 mag pouch will actually fit a little less tight than the 3 m4 one, though I guess it could always go the other way though and end up being tighter.

    I think it should fit just fine, but just be warned, if you have the S/M APC that the kangaroo pocket is pretty tight for 3 m4 mags. It works, but you barely need the elastic retention. I would imagine that a 4 mp7 mag one might be similar in fitment to the m4 one. The tightness is likely why short stack has a 3 mag shingle on the front rather than the kangaroo. Overall the APC is a well build PC but I wasn't too much of a fan of it largely because of tightness of the kangaroo pouch, but also because it lacked some of the nice features from the 6094 like cable routing and radio pouches.

    Looking good Short Stack, looks like you've slimmed it down a bit. Looks much slicker with only three mags up front.

    Thanks, will do, I just gotta pic up a new hydro pouch. I sold my LBT since it was the 50oz version and hung off the bottom in the back had way more than enough room for the bladder. I'm still trying to figure out just what I want to replace it since I honestly wasn't really that impressed with LBT's 6142 insulation. I'm thinking of the mayflower or TYR back panels.

    I actually have my JPC set up almost the same as Ezek_GrayFox, and I find that I can get it on and off easy enough by undoing just one side of the cummerbund as Blackjack mentioned. However, the 90 degree TNC connector for the antenna cable does have a sort of quick release function should I decide that I need to undo the other side. http://www.px-airsoft.com/showroom/model/largepic.jsp?p=../user/1213907847691/gallery/b_1330225648555007871.jpg There's a link to what I'm talking about if you haven't seen it before. It isn't very speedy by any means, but then again the JPC isn't a quick release carrier anyways so I don't find it to be that big of a deal. With the cable I have from px-airsoft I have plenty of length to run it over the shoulder, so I may end up giving it a go. edit: on a side note, I have found that the hose on my source bladder is super long and I noticed that many of your guys look like they are a good length. Is there a way to trim the tube or is it just coiled up somehow in the pouch?

    Possibly yes since this is an airsoft replica, but that would not happen with a real one. I honestly am not too worried about it since you would really have to be moving and hit something hard or really hung up on something.

    Because CAG. But really, having it reversed gives you more real estate on the upper rail to move the peq15 farther forward, or in my case to allow for my thumb to wrap over the top when I grip it. The 416 rail doesn't extend all the way over the gas block as I'm sure you've noticed so you can have the front sight reversed like that without it hanging over the flash hider and getting too hot or messing up ballistics/recoil on the real steel one. It also makes it way easier to deploy the front sight that way as well. Hence it is popular with CAG guys to have it flipped like that. Just check out some CAG/DELTA pictures and you will see what I mean.

    You sure they aren't element? I know they are sold under then name "night evolution" but they looked suspiciously similar to elements so I assumed they were just an updated rebrand or something. Anyways, whatever they are, how do they compare to the element ones? Would you care to expand upon what modifications you had to do? Is it something on the switch end or something on the light end, and will the switch plug into a real surefire without modification?
