    The attached may be useful. Did it ages ago but never got round to uploading it. As it is watermarked it was meant as a "Draft for Comment". Feel free to comment.... Airsoft Magazine Data V0.1.pdf

    The Computer Question Thread

    These days laptop keyboard replacements are pretty straightforward. Laptop designers twigged that folks spill stuff on them and they need to be easy to swap

    The Computer Question Thread

    There are two patch / pcb track antennae on the board. My guess, as with many WiFi routers/modems, would be that there is some degree of antenna multi-pathing cleverness involved. Such that you would need to attach a pair of external antennae if you wanted to maintain the functionality of the original. Just one will, most likely, at the least not improve performance and could even degrade it. The pair on the board will be matched. I think you will need a matched pair attached externally. Regarding where to solder the coax for the leads. Do you have a multimeter? If so check continuity between the 3 pads for each connector point and ground somewhere else on the board. My guess is that the two larger pads on each point will be ground and the smaller will be the rf/signal. Worth a check though just in case So screen to either of the larger pads and the core to the smaller.

    HTTPS is going to come in as default

    In simpler (ish) terms https means login credentials (username and password) should be encrypted when sent by you to the website. Where with an http website they are passed in plain text and can be easily intercepted / stolen.

    What extensions would "these extensions" be? A bit tricky for someone to diagnose your issue without your including a bit more information to help.

    Remove the 100 post limit on sales threads

    All depends. I signed up in May 2012 and got my 100th post a week or two ago. So in my case just shy of 3 years. Some might say this is because I am not dedicated enough to the forum to post regularly. Personally I try to only post when I have something I hope will be a useful contribution rather than just posting to get my count up. YMMV

    UK Spec KWA KMP9 Pictures

    Been reading through this thread as I picked up an ASG MP9 a while back. Since most of the activity here was back in 2012 I thought it may be useful to write about some new parts which have become available which may be of interest to more recent readers of this thread. First up G&G have produced a bayonet to 14mm CCW adaptor to fit other silencers to the ASG/KSC/KWA MP9/MP9R without having to replace the original silencer mount. I wont post links to sites as so many in this thread are now 404. Please use your search engine of choice and vendors should become apparent.... G&G 14mm Negative Threaded Adapter for KWA KMP9 Series Airsoft GBB SMG's RA-Tech have produced a new NS2/S7 compatible hop unit which is available with a hop rubber and 6.01 barrel RA-Tech ESD EVO II Hopup Set with Precision Inner Barrel for KWA MP9 Series Airsoft GBB SMG Wii Tech have brought out an upgraded hardened steel disconnector which may fix one of the biggest (from later thread posts) failures. Wii Tech CNC Hardened Steel Disconnector For KSC / KWA MP9 Airsoft GBB SMGs Part no 153 also Wii Tech CNC Hardened Steel Sear For KSC / KWA MP9 Airsoft GBB SMGs Part no 151 I gather if you have a nozzle failure with an earlier model nozzle, before the redesign, and need to replace the nozzle due to failure a new KWA/KSC replacement will also need the new orange piston seal rather than the green seal you will have fitted with an older nozzle. While checking out mine I noticed a lot of BB fragments / dust around the hop unit. On closer inspection the Feed Ramp Base (part 18) had been damaged on the feed ramp fingers/prongs. The tip of one had cracked off. Both had nicks and gouges on the leading edge, where the BB first impacts them when stripped from the mag by the nozzle, and had become quite sharp. They were chewing chunks out of BBs so looks like I need a new one. This part is steel already so may be worth keeping an eye on for damage if you see lots of tiny BB chips around the hop unit. Lastly while my bolt had no signs of wear from the bolt stop I did see signs of similar wear in the rhs bolt guide channel. As the bolt guides (part 66) in the lower receiver are pressed / stamped steel sheet, as with the bolt stop, it isn't too surprising to see that sharp edges / burrs of the pressing affect the bolt in the same way. A spot of delicate needle file fettling has removed the burrs and will hopefully eliminate the bolt wear. Hope this is useful.

    KJW Ruger Mk1 NBB Pistol Mods

    Pictures to illustrate some modifications which can be made to the KJW Ruger Mk1 NBB Pistol. Mods include stabilising the barrel, changing the trigger spring strength and the Hop rubber patch.
  15. An earlier version had a "Dont ask me again" option but would seem to have been removed either by tapatalk, the addon producer (one and the same?) or the IP Board people in a recent update. My frustration is with not being able to say "no thanks and don't ask again". I dont mind being asked once but I do mind everytime I open the site. I do understand it's uaefulness to those who want to try or use the app and to those who own/eun the site.
