    That's ace! Can you point me in the right direction of one of these (name for it)?

    Your PDR setup is exactly what I'm looking for. I still need to pick myself up a micro red dot, but it has been near impossible to get hold of the U.S Govt suppressors as they are always sold out. It's a shame because I sold my USP Tactical as I couldn't get a thread protector or suppressor for it and now that it's gone they've started popping up with equivalents in the UK. Hopefully they will stay in stock when I eventually pickup the KWA MK23 instead. I found an alternative here - http://www.leesprecision.co.uk/

    Any details on what we have to look forward to?

    The minute the ehobbyasia youtube video came out with this on a PDR, they sold out. Need to get one of these my self. Thanks for the pic. I assume you have the holo sight with the laser unit? I have been holding fire for the possible laser/torch pdr addon, it they ever make one.

    When I bought the PDR, it was a toss up between the PDR or a Kriss Vector for something different. I've always wanted a Real Sword Type 56-2 and that would have been a better buy, but I didn't want another large gun to hulk about the field. I own a PTS Masada and before I owned one I was growing a fetish for Magpul bits for my M4 or what I have coined as "military tupperware". I was looking for something compact and nearly bought an Ares G36CV. I still think about the Vector especially after the announcement regarding KWA, but I came to the decision that I wanted an AEG that I could share my PMags with and GBB in Scotland can be a problem. I got the chance to pick up a PDR in my local store and was sold at the size and sturdiness. I've not yet had a chance to try it out on the field apart from some outdoor shooting, but what I've experienced so far has not disappointed. The only thing that I have not done is downgrade the spring. I got a call from the company that sold me the gun and they said it was shooting too hot after the chrono. Around 400fps?! A little confused considering most chrono readings I've seen out of the box in videos etc, but I just asked them to leave it as I would change the spring myself. I still need to test it at long range and the hop to see if it suffers from the same problems my Masada did. £320 is steep, but all in all I'm please with my purchase. I would love to see other members of the forum post pictures of their PDR, but I guess there is a different part of the forum for this.

    I didn't realise I had entered the film The Outsiders. Does this mean you are a greaser and I'm a soc for having a gucci gash gun? That made me laugh mate Cheers

    What do you think gearbox aside whould be the first things you would do to your PDR? The reason I ask aside from the gearbox is that I am under the impression that a number of people had a problem with gearbox cracks in Masadas because they were modding it with upgrades the gearbox couldn't handle. This is to be expected from a gearbox that was really meant to stay the way it was. The other thing being the use of 11v over 7.4v Lipos and high torque motors that can add to much stress to the internals. I'm assuming the PDR would be much the same. It's a shame to think that we will have to wait for another manufacturer to bring out a solid drop in gearbox that can take upgrades without cracking. http://www.aztecairsoft.com/#!store/c1yws So what other options do you have other than tight bore barrels. Don't even mention a mosfet

    Was a little confused by this post. At the beginning it was a review and a breakdown of the internals. The middle was full of how sh@te it was and that nobody was going to buy one. The end is full of, when are they re-stocking and I want one nows??? I bought one the other day and am now terrified and confused

    I've heard a lot about the cracking gearbox shell issue with people who have upgraded the gearbox and motor. Has anyone had this issue without these upgrades? The guys at 321Airsoft (Youtube) said that the Masada should at it's price be able to take these upgrades without cracking and that a cheaper G&G guns have never had this problem whatever was put in it. I’m a believer in if it aint broke, don't try and fix it. Don’t mix this up with ignorance though, it’s just logic based on what I need my rifles to do rather that plug a Ferrari engine into a Reliant Robin I guess. The only thing I've upgraded is the hop rubber as it had to be done. But even though there are a lot of people out there that may be experienced in airsoft upgrades, they are not necessarily experts in physics of what the gear box/metals and plastics can take when put under stress and when they break their guns they blame the manufacturer. I would like to hear other opinions on this in regards to the Magpul PTS Masada.
