    Same for me. I suspect a mail server relay at the ISP end is having problems.

    KWA VZ.61 Skorpion GBB

    Had one which I bought second hand from a reviewer on another forum. Was fun but In CQB no advantage over a pistol if you have an extended mag, but larger and heavier Outdoors, pistol range and on auto too high a rate of fire Also found the long mags struggled to hold enough gas for a whole mag Playing with it in January at ~0 degrees it suffered very badly Sold it again, but only because some one else was after one and I wasn't using it. Was fun but not practical.

    WE P38k review (picture heavy)

    Been waiting for this one for ages - and for some strange reason want that large baffle, also need a communicator pen ...

    GHK G5 First Impressions.

    G2 has been out for a fair while - I got mine in HK in April and it was not new out in Europe/US then. You could always ask a retailer for pictures

    GHK G5 First Impressions.

    Two easy ways. First look at the bottom of the stock retaining pin - the MK2 has a c/e clip where as the MK1 does not. Second way - pop up the upper (as if going to remove the bolt). AT the back are three slats. If they are all the same size it is a MK2, if the middle one is noticeably shorter, it's a MK1. Additionally there should be a rubber inside the back of the bolt assembly unit - if there's an indent there it's a MK1, however if one is there it could be either.

    TM FN Five-seveN GBB

    Thought this thread was archive/locked ? - been reading it today as I'm tempted by one but haven't had time to read the whole thing, just the first few pages (where people rave about it) and the last 4 where I just see scare stories and talk of possibly a new version. As some one who does not really alter his guns, are they worth the risk at UK costs or could I find myself regretting buying one ?

    Milspec Solutions Shocking customer service

    I've not had a problem with Milspec before, but he's got more competition now as Proairsoftsupplies are now also stocking GHK and as it's taken them some thing like 4 months to set it up I suspect it's as an official importer.

    My carbine kit arrived today and is now fitted, so here's my 'baby' Note - for reference for anyone thinking of installing the carbine kit and like me needs instructions, here's a link to the pictures posted by Samoon on their Facebook page (FB account required). Oh should add - not installed the 1 joule nozzle (yet). With WE Green Gas before hand I recorded (on a Xcortech 3200 with 0.2g) 335, 335, 317, 317, 317. Post 354, 352, 345, 345, 345

    GHK G5 First Impressions.

    Only catch is - and my real worry, is that the front will shake off as the latch opened fully. Still could be worse - when I went to chrono it I had on a cheap ASG torch - the marshal fired one shot and bits went flying all over - initially I was worried I'd not secured the mag properly until I realised that the recoil had literally blown the back off the torch unit with the batteries flying out after it ...

    Well used mine in anger for the first time today. I found First shot when chrono'ing the gun resulted in the back of my torch flying off (good job I had another with a stronger back as I was part doing CQB) The battery latch of my Eotech clone would gradually work loose resulting in the batteries being disconnected (who needs a red dot anyhow when your first shot has gone down stream) Some of my mags (all new) would not take more than about 24/5 rounds at first, and even by the end of the day some were still only accepting 28 However - had a blast, loved it. Just wished I'd either bought more mags from Guns and Guys when I got the G5 or had ordered more from Samoon. Most the mags are now taking 28-32 rounds and there's enough gas for two loads without any apparent drop. Oh and the accuracy of the thing without even touching the hop.

    Didn't have time (or space in my case for additional gear just as my boots)

    GHK G5 First Impressions.

    I didn't. Before I went to the area I chekcked online and they were out of stock of the G5. I wanted to get all together and then post buying just the gun and mags I got side tracked. Having said that Samoon were cheaper on most the prices I saw in HK and none of the places I had looked at had the 1 joule nozzle in stock so I was always going to have to put an order in.

    I can't remember where else around Wong Wa street I saw the G5 and extras, but I got a good deal at Guns and Guys, plus a few of the others were expensive. I initially wandered round on Good Friday, then again non Easter Monday, so some shops were closed. Landed back early hours this morning. Might post pictures later - I'm going for the all black look - got the G5 plus 3 spare mags, going to get the 1 joule nozzle, 2 more mags, and the 12" carbine kit for it, plus a Magpul AFG2 - the only plaved in Wong Wa that appeared to have one was closed each time I looked. Fired off a magazine once I got back - 347 FPS first shot, then 317 for the next 3 (consistent) at about 12-14 degrees with WE green gas (which does seem to be weaker than other green gases). Oh going to get a propane adapter as well.

    Possibly dangerous question, but is anyone in the Watford/Uxbridge area about to put an order in with Samoon ? Just picked my G5 up from Guns & Guys in Hong Kong, but they only had the 16" carbine kit and no 1 joule nozzle.
