    Initial impressions of the Tokyo Marui HK417

    Interesting that you mention you have an m120 in it. Is that a standard spring, or one of the shorter ones supposedly designed for recoil gearboxes? I don't profess to know anything about springs and could well be being fed lies, but product descriptions for 'recoil-specific' springs say this: Using a oversized aeg spring in one of these gearbox's will cause excess wear to your stock tube threads or poor cycling / reduced battery efficiency. http://eagle6.co.uk/shop/catalog/product/view/id/584/s/eagle6-airsoft-m95-spring-for-next-generation-recoil-shock-series/

    Custom Gear

    Had some pouches tailored for me by Eklam (/Flimmuur Tactical) since HSGI stopped making their tacos in A-TACS FG. A small wait for materials followed by an even smaller one for them to be made up and I finally have a low[er] drag setup than my previous triple-decker tacos which were absurd. Four rifle tacos and four pistol tacos, slightly extended so they grip my XDM mags better (feed lips + relatively lengthy pistol mag = poor retention in the HSGI ones) Beautiful tailoring and none of the horrors of having to use malice clips to attach these ones!
  6. Just as soon as WGCShop come back from their easter break I will have one of these being shipped to me. With any luck, UPS will mess me about less with customs than EMS (well, Parcelforce really) always does. Then comes an exercise in self-restraint to leave it the hell alone. I'll probably put a tightbore in it, someone mentioned the hop unit is a bit of a pain to disassemble without breaking it, but i'm sure its absolutely fine.

    Tokyo Marui's XDM-40 4.5": first impressions

    What torches do you guys use? I couldn't get the Emerson x300u to fit securely and the Nextorch WL10 and TL1 i was looking at seem to hang out past the front of the rail a little too much for my liking.

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    EDIT: nevermind, its on the way more popular news thread for this.
  9. Picking up a Scar-H in the near future most likely... noticed my intended retailer has had ~14 in stock for a fair while now. Any dangers in picking up what may be old(er) stock and were there any known flaws present in earlier production models that may have been ironed out if I deliberately chose a retailer with 'new' stock? I'm almost tempted to order from Impulse101 so i can take the opportunity to pick up some spares at the same time. I hear the stock release button is brittle and shatters quite easily and earlier in this thread I saw some damage to the rear of the bolt (forgive the probably incorrect terminology) but other than that I think all is well. Just making sure before dropping £500 on something!

    Tokyo Marui M&P9

    Thanks! (and damn you, now I still want to buy one of these...)

    Tokyo Marui M&P9

    Had someone at a game day pass me one of these to have a hold of with the medium grip on it - it felt like there was a circle pressing into the centre of my palm - quite an odd feeling. Is this just me and does the smaller grip do away with this?

    GHK G5 First Impressions.

    It is not necessarily true that all G5s shoot 350 out of the box. By in large they do, but mine consistently shot 360-370 on an xcortech last summer and just over 350 in normal weather. Thankfully, my local use god awful madbull blue chronos which put it at 345fps

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Yeah, pretty sure nobody who has seen this likes the compensator, but hey, i like it! Stock extended. Sorry about the poor lighting. Having a bit of trouble with the barrel nut not tightening up enough so you can unscrew the barrel if you apply a not-that-big-amount-of pressure opposite ways on the receiver and the rail. Have just moved the t1 down slightly for extra security though.

    I'm sorry, but also not sorry at all, for pinching the stock idea! You'll always win with that lovely JP Rifles receiver though
