    Northeast Mini and full sized Uzi GBB

    I have seen DH mods with CO2 capsules, but yes capsules take up space and are prone to cool down just as much as green gas. Any recommendations around whats a good gas injector unit working off a CO2 bottle? And how much more efficiency do you get out of a magazine (using say a GHK M4 as a base model). Depending on the price, the full sized UZI would make a great addition to my collection. For the last 12 years I have been running exclusively ol'school IDF shirt and pants, A11 ephrod, M16A1/CAR15 Mekutzrar/Galil ARM/MAG58/Mini UZI. Only thing I don't have is a Tavor (sold 3 AEG ones), a micro UZI (Sold my Maruzen with a folding stock), and a full sized skirmishable UZI (sold 2 AEG ones), a pair of red IDF boots, and an M1 helmet (which I despise as I spent far too long in one back in the day).

    Northeast Mini and full sized Uzi GBB

    I am a bit behind the times, I thought the DH mod was converting a GHK magazine to take CO2 capsule? Since the Mini UZI is already a CO2 gun, is the DH mod a bit defunct? Unless you are talking about modifying a standard green gas magazine to fill and use liquid CO2 via an injector adaptor for a CO2 bottle (not running a remote line).

    Northeast Mini and full sized Uzi GBB

    Actually I would rather have a green gas UZI. I already have a closed bolt KWC Mini UZI which annoys me a bit that it isn't skirmish practical. For most green gas GBBs one wants the ability to fire half a mag of BBs during an engagement, and then top up BBs and gas ready for the next engagement. But with CO2 you can't, as you have a partially gassed mag which won't fire the rest of the BBs if you go for a top up. Also CO2 mags only lasts at best 1.5 charge per mag and the overhanging bolt and spring tension isn't really that heavy. WE Thompsons, M4s and AKs have larger and heavier bolts than the KWC UZI yet still able to fire far more shots per magazine.

    FN Picture Thread

    I got bored yesterday, watching "White house down", and I thought "Wouldn't it be nice to have an APC9..." I present, the "FN APC556 K" Features: - WE SCAR L base gun. - non-reciprocating charging handle - B&T side folder - 6.5" barrel, with a FPS of 380 on 0.2g

    Classic army g3

    Its light, does have a little flex and its crude in detail. It is merely a toy and feels like it. But if you want a simple battle rifle, then it is one way to go.

    VFC/Zero Hammer Fettling

    On the PPQ the zero hammer works well, but that isn't the problem. The problem is that the irregular shape of the zero hammer increases blowback housing deformation/breakage particularly when the sharp end of the zero hammer impacts on the blowback housing. On the standard airsoft glocks, with a bushing hammer, the recoiling force is spread over a larger area and hence the blowback housing deformations is less severe. The friction observed with a bushing hammer can be fixed by changing the slope of the last 1cm of travel on the bottom of the blowback housing. As you will observe, it is both raised and has an sharp angular edge, once the edge has been rounded and the raised portion is lowered, both the blowback and return stroke will be smooth.

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    I find that the BBS structure of forums allow for better navigation of themes and discussions than Social Media based Group UI. As for airsofting, some of us have been in this hobby for 20-25 years. I remember my first skirmish in 1994. The thing is, learning and growth in airsoft gets to a particularly point and then the challenge curve reaches a plateau. You can get proficient at weapon-tech, individual fieldcraft, and then build a good section/squad. But to build beyond that size of organisation for anything more epic, requires doctrine, training, military mindset and discipline, and lots of money and hardware. Most civilian players are not willing to commit to this for a 3-24 hour affair. Only people who will function beyond the plateau are ex-military personnel, who have had the conditioning to begin with. Hence airsoft is a bit of a lost cause to most, and life has other priorities that will push it aside. It is a shame, a well planned airsoft event with combined arms and a good battlespace infrastructure can be far better experience than the average company sized infantry exercise. Even a well planned section level airsoft event, is far more dynamic and team dependent than footie, rugby or basketball IMHO. Airsoft is the sport of kings (or king makers).

    WE's jet-fire

    R&D cost too high? Note sure. The Mini UZI design comes from Western Arms, which they bought the manufacturing license to their pattern and their blowback valves and units, and then subsequently installed into their old patterned GBBs. I have the Mini UZI closed bolt, which is strange as the WA version is the open bolt design.

    Makarov or Tokarev TT-33?

    I have had 2 Makarovs come into repair where if I tighten the screw too much it would not cycle. I had another Makarov that was fine when the screw was tightened, so not all are the same.

    Having a spare pinion is a must particularly if the grub screw is worn. I have a modified pinion remover that works on D-shaped motor shafts as well as round motor shafts, but if all else fails you may have to cut the pinion out with a dremel. I find that different manufacturers use different pinion gear and bevel gear sizing and teeth shape. Having a mismatch results in a grinding noises in the gear. I often modify motor shaft lengths to fit. Some guns like the JP FAMAS or SIG 55x have custom motor lengths and if you want to put a good Lonex or SHS into the rifle you will need is a dremel and a cutting disc, and an old sock. - Remove Pinion gear from motor, best method is to blow torch the grub screw and then unscrew. - Measure the shaft to the appropriate length and mark. - Stick the motor in the sock with only the shaft sticking out. This is to prevent the iron filings sticking to the motor when cutting. - Cut the shaft down to appropriate length with dremel - Reshape/re-cut the D cut out on the shaft to fit the pinion (if the pinion is D-shaped) - Mount the Pinion, grub screw and locktite That should work.

    Makarov or Tokarev TT-33?

    If you go chrome, then both the WE TT33 and Makarov PMM are fairly hardy. Matt black coat just wears out and increases friction. The WE TT33 does require a file down of the rear sight in order for it to work, that and its hop up lever is pretty garbage resulting in either heavy hop or no hop. I had to make a Hi-capa hop lever fit the TT33. However, the Chromed PMM is slightly sharper around the edges due to the electroplating process, and I find my hands get cut. The PMMs hop is fine, its Achillies heal is the slide stop and the barrel mounting trunion which knocks itself loose but the screw cannot be tightened all the way due to slide to barrel tolerances. But it works well. So I bought the Chrome TT33 and a black Makarov. The TT33 roughly fits a M1911 serpa and the Makarov fits a modified PPK serpa.

    WE's jet-fire

    If pocket pistols don't sell badly , then why not make the PPK or M1934? I have owned both the M1934 and the PPK GBBs (both disintegrated on me) Who here has actually bought a WE pocket pistol? And why?

    WE's jet-fire

    G3 and FAL while popular from airsoft aficionados , isn't as popular across popular media as the UZI. Then again I am old school, and knows little about the guns in modern video games today. In saying that, pocket pistols are a bit strange. Aside being great platforms for .22 conversions I am unsure why there is a market for small pocket pistols that aren't useful in CQB or in the field.

    Ouch. I shall retire to my Trusty plastic welding tool.
