  1. what is "a WA style expansion chamber"?
  2. Wut??? how come I didn't know about this?
  3. Finally available in the US through Evike 😄
  4. considering their regular G3A3 is $450 and all the custom things they must develop for a (probably) very small batch, $780 sounds fair. Still I wish it was somewhat cheaper, that's some serious money for an airsoft gun.
  5. Why would anyone still use lubed gas is beyond me
  6. lol. Haven't tried those yet, but have some on the way. Honestly I wouldn't expect them to behave any different, I believe the change is mostly for manufacturing ease (which is welcomed, considering their previous ones had ocasional molding issues). But I'm certainly looking forward to give them a try. Ill try to run some test when they arrive.
  7. Guys I'm no VFC fan either, having dealt with their always-failing guns for more than a decade. I can see why they are known as Very Frustrating Company. But truth be told, they really stepped up their GBB game in the last couple of years. Their G3 is a solid performer, and I wouldn't expect anything less from the PSG-1, which most likely shares all working parts with.
  8. Awesome review. The choice of an o-ring instead of cup seal is where it shows their lack of experience with GBBs. I'm pretty sure this gun would greatly benefit from a cup seal, and a somewhat lighter hammer spring while we're at it. Giving a second thought on that, IIRC the Makarov nozzle is also 15mm, so maybe we could adapt WE piston head and shaft to the Raptor Grach.
  9. wonder if RPK-74 (45rnd) mag shells could fit the WE AK-74 mag internals..
  10. I assumed we were talking about the 74 mags (the plastic ones), as those are the ones that break easily, as well as the ones that are much longer than real mags.
  11. None. Your best bet is reinforcing the standard shells.
  12. Fair enough, that's why I emphasised that the rentals allows us to test a gun at a much faster pace than a regular user would. Most users probably won't gent any of the issues until about a year of use, except for the mag catch. That's the only big fail on the gun, and should be evident for anyone that can get their hands on those mags. Really, really sharp metal edges engaging a tiny plastic surface should be an obvious no-go. Other than that, it's true that there are many guns with less durability, but there's also many that last 20x more. I guess comrade Diatlov can say it c
  13. Well we got some of those for the rental field and results are not good at all. Yup, it's a snappy gun... being a really light weight slide. But the recoil, accuracy and range are "meh" at best. The real issue is with durability. At the rental field, guns go through about a 500 rounds every day. This allow us to test guns at a much faster place than any normal user would. At that pace, the humble WE G17s are lasting for 2 years before showing any failure, which normally is the sear, right where it engages with the trigger bar. The ICSs lasted less than a month. The most obnoxiou
  14. At that sort of temperature you should be using at least Map Pro / propylene or even black gas
  15. The 74M is post-soviet and is the most common rifle in any deployment, the previous AK-74, AKS-74 and most other variants can be seen a lot in training but they are long gone from actual service. The plan is to modernise most of those guns to the 74M3 spec (which is something airsoft manufacturers could easily do as well) and get any new production in the AK-12 / 15 variant. They are already making their way to the units and are gonna be the most common in a decade. This is no AN-94.
