    Many thanks, much appreciated! Although I think I might go for one of the harder rubbers, as I'm planning on using 0.28 rounds, and I'm lead to believe that the harder rubbers are better suited to heavier weight ammunition.

    I wouldn't say it was overly difficult, the biggest problem was removing excess material from the G&G parts. G&G AFV sub-assemblies required: L85-C-09 (The front, outer barrel, mock gas parts), L85-C-10 (top cover, mock gas parts). L85-C-11 is optional, it's just the flash hider. If ordered direct from G&G, they are supplied fully assembled. L85-C-09-2 is the actual front end. Spare WE L85 #40 and screws #149 (x2) may be useful. Removing the original outer barrel, gas block, #40 etc - not too difficult, just a case of undoing a few screws and it all slides out. C-09-2 slides into the vacant space, but won't stay in place and blocks the safety. However, getting C-09-2 to fix into place was beyond me - I lacked the necessary tools. From memory of what the tech and I discussed, our solution was: The lower edges of C-09-2 needed cutting down (fair amount of work with the dremel), to fit over the WE's Safety. WE #40 needed cutting, all the material above the screw holes needs to be removed. Parts C-09-2 and WE #40 then get fixed together. This then allows the new front end to be screwed into place in the upper TMH. Looking back I see that there are a few things that we could have done differently, but what we did works, and I am more that satisfied with the results. That said, if anyone could recommend any hop-up and inner barrel replacements/improvements I'd be very appreciative of it.

    Here's my pride and joy. It's undergone a little bit of 'cosmetic surgery' since the last time I posted it online. Take a W.E L85A2 GBBR. Saw off the front end. Acquire a G&G 'AFV' front end. Apply a liberal use of hammers, harsh language and eventually the skills of a well trained professional airsoft-tech and this is the result: It works fairly well, although my next step will be working on the internals to try and improve the performance to get something that's a little less likely to fling rounds off in random directions...

    Taken by a mate whilst we were ranging in. Only editing I've done is to the colours, brightening it up a tad, as it the photo came out too grey.

    I find it works really well (for me) - but what you can't see is that I have another pistol on my right leg, also cross draw. I'm ambidextrous, and I just find it far more comfortable to do a cross draw as opposed to a 'normal' draw. It also means that in zombie games I can ditch the carbine and go guns akimbo I have a Cybergun (KSC?) P226 X-5 on my left leg and on my right leg I either have a KJ P226 (in photo), or KJ P229.

    From F&O Huddersfield's last ever game at the start of April. Zombies versus assorted survivors and mercs. The cameraman was shot quite a bit. Not least because he was also dressed as a zombie...

    Do you mean any specific type? I have Abbey silicon gun oil (35), is that suitable, or do you mean 'real' gun oil? (Sorry if that's a really stupid question )

    SIG Picture Thread

    There are some amazing SIGs here guys. This is my first attempt at getting that polished ("mirrored"?) effect. Going to use it in my ''Jon Casey" inspired loadout (it should be a non-rail P229, but I'll be damned if I pay £205 for the tanaka pistol...) Out of interest, how do I stop it dulling? One of my team mates has polished his glock, but it keeps oxidising (I think that's the term) - it clouds over and loses its shine. Is there any way to stop that?

    A photo of me in-game from F&O Huddersfield game from 2 weeks ago. It was freezing all day despite the sun, about -3 to 1C all day (hence massive gloves) *Edit - sorry for the massive pics, I had resized them on photobucket to be smaller...

    What's your backup?

    A hair-dryer A KJW P229 (rail) Whilst I'd have prefered the navy/non-rail, beggers can't be choosers. I'd love to give it some polish steel/chrome features, and crimson trace laser grips. No, this isn't at all because I want to look like Casey from Chuck...

    What music are you currently listening to?

    "We are Broken" Paramore -I've listened to it numerous times before, but it's suddenly just become very depressing to listen to. cannot wait for my computer to hurry up and play "London Calling" to cheer me up...

    What's your backup?

    A £15 EBB walther P99. (IIRC, its made by someone called 'Double Eagle') I bought it for a joke to be honest. It's bright orange. Powered by four AAAs. People mock me for it - but they stop when I suddenly draw it, and unload 16 round in their general direction. In one day's skirmishing, I got 12 kills with the 'lolgun'. It is actually far more reliable than a team mate's £100 electric Glock 18
