  1. No need to run the old 1.50 firmware....the latest 3.90 offers all the features of 1.50 while still having the latest patches for recent releases.
  2. For me it was using Google Earth with the GPS receiver so I can navigate anywhere in the world.... it makes my Garmin look like a Peice of poo.
  3. I want the Brown Hoodie as well. Spoke to Paul yesterday and he informs me that the new batches will be much better copies. More attention to the internals as well as a better fabric.
  4. Best take that one to PM's Doc. I have a document i wrote for 2 of the guys at work whose PSP i did the Pandora hack to, it pretty much explains what and how it all works.
  5. Im able to hit my usual target, which is a give way traffic sign (Identical in size and shape to UK ones) at a little over 50 meters. That is without fine tunning the hop perfectly or zeroing in the scope. As for the power, not 100% yet as my Chrono is the type you screw on to the end of the barrel.
  6. yep, wound back the official 3.95 firmware to the 3.70 M33 firmware. Then upgraded back up to the 3.90 M33-3
  7. My new toy for the long commutes to Tokyo. PSP 2000 slim and light Piano Black: Decided to customise it: Realised that i had invalidated the warranty so decided to go one step further! Running 3.90 M33-3
  8. Well it's rainy season here in Japan and so far mine has survived 1 Tyhpoon and several heavy tropical down pours followed by heavy humidity and these are bloody great! I have the version without the hood and I have to say that these are as water poof as they come, the rain was just beading off mine and alas my trousers got soaked.
  9. Finally we have the 190 rd magazine. This is pretty much identical to other generic models on the market apart from the embossed King Arms logo on the base plate. I’ve only fired off around 500 rounds in semi through the weapon, but in that short space of time did not experience any double feeds or jams. Just like the other King Arms magazines I’ve tested the winding mechanism is very smooth and over winding will not result in the spring releasing. Also again I tested inserting the magazine at all angles both gently and combat slap, again without the spring releasing.’ But only
  10. As many of you are aware either through reading my reviews or from owning a new version King Arms receivers is the way the extension tube has been redesigned to solve many issues faced be players The design team at King Arms has rethought the design process and has made some changes that are really a benefit. Players who use a battery stocks and have upgraded to a metal body will all know about the need to ‘Chop’ the extension tube to allow a battery to be fitted. King Arms has designed the length to the precise measurement and not only that added to it! As you can see th
  11. Likewise the upper receiver has some differences to when compared to generic metal bodies on the market. The first is that there is actually a channel now for the bolt to slide along, but also the bolt itself is very different. As you can see the bolt is now spring loaded and when the charging handle is pulled back the bolt also moves back locking with the spring latch. Now yes, this is a gimmick and its only real use is to hold the fake bolt back without having to also manipulate the charging handle while adjusting the hop unit. But never the less, it’s still something that
  12. The upper and lower receiver is exactly the same in design as the one featured in the TROY A3 review and players will not be disappointed with the captive receiver pins. Players that are used to the old style receivers will certainly appreciate these pins, on closer inspection of the front receiver pin you will notice that the pin has small semispherical indent to it. This indent is what the spring pin locks into when the receiver pin is pushed fully into both halves of the receiver and prevents the pin from working it’s way loose. Not only that the same spring pin
  13. One of the other points were the King Arms and the real Bushmaster differ is on the vents. The King Arms variant only sports the venting on the front of the fore-grip while the real steel has them both at the front and the back. Needless to say the purists amongst us will be a little disappointed so far with the lack of adherence to the real thing. One of the other features of the fore-grip is the beautifully textured finish, making it virtually anti-slip. One of the other disappointments is that the inner barrel does not fully extend to the end of the barrel but st
  14. The King Arms 24” Free Floating Sniper Rifle. Yet again King Arms delivers an outstanding gear box that will deliver both the ability to withstand the wear and tear of power users, as well as the reliability for players looking for a stock weapon to last. Just like the TROY A3 the King Arms 24” Free Floating Sniper Rifle is a complete package, meaning that it’s designed to fit a certain role within the game. In this case a designated sniper rifle, so players looking for a multirole weapon need to look else where. The barrel as stated is the 24”, making this a mere 7cm lon
  15. Having removed 90% of the internals from the gearbox shell you start to notice where it is reinforced. The obvious place being directly behind the spur gear on both sides of the gear box. Another thing that is an improvement over the generic shell is the addition of several mounting points on the shell. These help secure the two halves together and enable a better seal. Hop Unit. Again the hop unit is the exact same one used throughout the whole King Arms range and as I stated before its perfect, it’s actually the exact same unit that I purchase when upgradi
  16. The switch assembly of the King Arms version 2 gear box also uses the same nylon; this assembly is a huge improvement on the generic versions found in Tokyo Marui’s. Not only does it attach to the main housing of the gear box in a more secure manner. Not only that but the springs, and hinge points are of a far better quality and construction. The soldering is also very good, which is a far improvement on all of the products making their way out of China. The piston is of a generic 16 tooth design and I was a little disappointed to find that it did not have the gaps along
  17. To the untrained eye the gears look like generic gears. In actual fact they are all made from steel and reinforced. The gears are well machined and mesh perfectly together. Bevel gear Spur gear Sector gear The other nice feature is that the sector gear comes standard with a sector gear clip (Cam). The benefit of this is that it delays the release of the tappet plate and prevents feeding issues. The anti-reversal latch is also reinforced steel and is no different to other generic latches on the market, apart from the fact that this has been designed and t
  18. The Box. As you can see from the box, it has taken a beating in transit having made its way back and forth from Hong Kong to Japan not once but three times. Although the box was holed several times the contents was undamaged. This is due to the thick high compact foam used to secure the weapon into position for storage and transportation. As you can see from the image, the barrel needs assembling due to the length as otherwise it would not fit in the box. What You Get. This is were all the imagery on King Arms and other websites gets confusing, the weapon come
  19. King Arms 24” Free Floating Sniper Rifle AKA The BushMaster XM15E2S Sniper Rifle I would like to thank Mark and the team for sending this over for review and after several problems with Japanese Customs and TNT, UPS and finally my savior, Japanese standard EMS the rifle finally got here! Now unlike the Troy A3 CQC, the BushMaster was sent complete, making it through customs on its third try without a hitch. So anyone shipping into Japan from HK or other Asian countries needs not worry about whether or not your rifle is complete or in kit form as EMS doesn’t care. Altho
  20. Could be that the lower receiver is ever so slightly bent, get a set of callipers and measure the inner width of the lower, if it is slightly out he'll need to gently and ever so slightly corrct the indentation. The other thing is that his selector switch might be on too tightly, I had mine open yesterday to take photos for the review and I thought I might as well give it a quick check over to make sure everything is tight..... Safe to semi fine, semi to auto became very tight especailly the last .3mm so i had to losen it ever so slightly which solved the issue.
  21. Ok for those of you having issues taking off the top receiver: Make sure the fake bolt is in the closed position, then after puching out the front pin (you don't need to do the back one) pull the cocking handle back a slight fraction whilest pulling the top receiver forward. You may find that you only get about .5cm of pull so give the top receiver a slight twist left and right while working the upper off. I had no issues with the TROY A3 but the BushMaster 24" sniper needed me to do the above a few times before it would come off smoothly.
  22. Team marker, alot less intrusive than armbands and actually looks like it's supposed to be there. You mean like this? or this? Had the above one with me on the day but one of the 6mm bearings failed and caused the gears to misalign. Yes it is
  23. Taken at a game last weekend....never underestimate the power of the foot kill!

  25. No Im using a drop leg holster, due to the numerous amount of hand guns I have I use the BlackHawk thigh platform with the appropriate CQC holster.
