    LCT AK electric blowback kit is out

    I do really want to put one of these in my E&L AKS-74U, but I've also seen BOLT's new AKS-74U BRSS, which basically seems to come with this system preinstalled. I'd really like to see them tested back-to-back to figure out which has the better recoil - that's going to be the decision-maker for me.

    Tokyo Marui and Licensing

    Japanese trademark laws seem to be complex and unintuitive. Japan obviously does have a very strict IP regime - any country that generates that kind of quantities of high technology has to - but it is pretty clear that few of TM's range are licensed. The Glocks obviously aren't and never have been; the same almost certainly goes for the H&Ks, Colts, Berettas and S&Ws, because the licenses for all of those are held by Umarex. The same also almost certainly goes for the SIGs, FNHs, the Desert Eagle and the FAMAS, because the licenses for all of those are held by Cybergun. The only obviously licensed products in TM's catalogue are special-edition videogame tie-ins; Capcom clearly licenses these products to TM. Exactly why it is TM (and KSC, and Western Arms, and basically every other Japanese manufacturer) is able to get away with this is a subject of much debate. It may be that Japanese copyright law distinguishes between products that are real and those that are replica, or maybe they conclude that because the average citizen will never encounter the real thing they cannot reasonably confuse the two, or maybe the legal system is so byzantine and the effect on real gun makers' sales so inestimably small that the licensees simply don't bother enforcing in the JDM. There are negotiated exceptions to the rules to get some guns imported. Evike (a major American retailer) is selling TM PS90s "officially licensed by FNH", which so far as I can tell is not a claim TM make. I think it's most likely that Evike have struck a deal with CyberGun to license these guns and Evike themselves are paying the licensing fee, rather than the manufacturer.

    Dual pressure switch

    I have the reverse problem - a real SureFire pressure switch (ITI plug) and a G&G CVL (2.5mm jack). I'm not cutting the plug off a $125 pressure switch, so some kind of socket-adapter-pigtail is going to have to be made. ☹️

    You can get aluminium replicas of the KKM and TBRCi compensators.

    TM / KJW Mk23 Metal slide

    Shooters Design make them in black, silver and titanium.
  6. Goddamnit yes. There is enough demand for P7s for Octagon to buy up ancient MGCs and start low-volume production of metal slides for those antiques. TM already make a springer, c'mon... The problem isn't demand, it's technical prowess. The TM AEG is long, long discontinued and even when it was around was hobbled by the absolutely bizarre reverse-action bagel-cylinder Version 5 gearbox and the total lack of support for that. I sold a used TM UZI years ago and even then it had been a decade or more since you could get replacements for the unique and fragile gearset. Most TM UZIs must be paperweights by now, and the alternatives (the long, long discontinued Maruzen AEP, the horrible Well AEP) suck(ed) pretty badly too. The WA Mini UZI is OK, and the KWC is great if you have appropriately low expectations, but we are long overdue a decent UZI. With VFC claiming to release an AEG MP7 later this year maybe we'll see the gearbox developments required to build a decent UZI, but I'm not holding my breath. If we can't have an AEG MP5 that isn't crippled by some stupid feature or other (looking at you, needlessly complex VFC 3rd burst) I'm not sure any company's going to be prepared to make the financial investment. A WE GBB isn't outside the realms of possibility, but my dream - TM Recoil Shock UZI with Guarder (or LCT) stamped steel body - is likely to stay a dream.
  7. Accessory/Make: 3x Tokyo Marui P226 Magazine with Nine Ball Gas Routers Condition: Used Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No/No/Glock Magazines Price/Payment: £55.00 plus shipping Pictures: As below, more available upon request. For sale are 3 Tokyo Marui P226 magazines fitted with Nine Ball gas routers for greater efficiency. These are compatible with both the P226R and the later P226 E2, as well as KJW, WE and other clones of those designs. They are lightly used with cosmetic paint wear only, are entirely functional and fully gas-tight (and have never, ever leaked). By way of example ZeroIn sells the very similar E2 magazines for £25.95 each and two routers for £10.95, so the total cost of these new would be £99.75. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
  8. Does anyone know of a G17 RMR slide that's just a basic Glock, rather than an aftermarket (ZEV, SAI etc.) one?

      Thanks! I've been keeping an eye on the Volante ones, which look promising aside from the eye-watering price. I guess he figures he's going to have to amortize the development costs of the new BBU solely over this handful of slides - I'll wait and see.

      Nice! Sadly (sort of) I already bought a PGC G17 slide, another Volante BBU and an ALG 6 Second with a clone T1...

    Are we going to get a game in? If so, hook a brother up.

    W&P Revival Show is on Netflix's Dark Tourist

    As far as I'm concerned edgelord kits of all sorts (of which Nazi German ones are by far the most common) are nothing less than embarrassing attention-seeking at other players' expense. I'm Jewish. I don't want to see Nazi uniforms when I go play airsoft. I've overheard marshals discussing where to hang a Nazi flag in the safe zone and frankly I don't want to see that either. I don't make everyone else uncomfortable by wearing KZ inmate's uniform, and everyone else can repay the favour by not wearing a KZ guard's uniform. If you feel like your life is simply incomplete without dressing as Oskar Dirlewanger, then do it in the discomfort of your own home, or in places where everyone understands they're going to encounter colossal wehraboos. Don't bring it to a walk-on skirmish, or I will explain to you in excruciating detail exactly why I don't think it's appropriate. Trust me, listening to my ceaseless, seething complaints for 15 minutes minimum will take all of the fun out of putting the costume on in the first place. Pretty much sums it up for me. I will never be able to forget a scene in Panorama's "Weekend Nazis" episode where John Sweeney tries to get a stallholder to explain why he is selling a trolley from Bergen Belsen. Or the Nazi wedding. Or famously convicted Holocaust denier David Irving signing autographs, for that matter.
