  1. My ARES L1A1 Self Loading Rifle. Where appropriate some metal parts have been paint stripped and refinished to replicate the real weapon more closely, notably the fake bolt carrier and the butt plate. The ARES wooden furniture set was purchased separately and I stripped it back, stained it, gave it a good soaking in boiled linseed oil and then finished off by rubbing in a beeswax/turps/linseed oil mix. The sight is an L2A1 SUIT (Sight Unit Infantry Trilux) manufactured in April 1972. The dust cover incorporating the SUIT adapter mount is a new reproduction purchased from DS Solutio
  2. I run my G&G stock off 7.4v LiPos, makes no difference. Sent from my ST15i using Tapatalk 2

  4. My mates Classic Army blowback SPC after I'd fitted a Madbull ACE stock to it for him, the Magpul front furniture he'd already fitted beforehand. Sent from my ST15i using Tapatalk 2
  5. My two year old son charging back and forth with a toy Jumbo Jet making aeroplane noises just now. Oh to have that energy after the night he gave us last night! Sent from my Sony Xperia Mini using Tapatalk 2
  6. Its full title is "Small Arms Collimator" (SAC) So there you go.
  7. Apex that question was answered two posts before RT's. L85 riser mount, airsoft version made by Hornbill. Look on RSOV or EBay. Sent from my ST15i using Tapatalk 2

  10. A wee question... Of the various airsoft Magpul EMAGs available out there are any of them of the two window configuration as is UK issue and if so where's the best place to find them? Cheers
  11. Yep, wish I'd waited for the Element LLM, not only better features but cheaper too.
  12. Hornbill L85 Specter sight adapter posted on RSOV as being available this month. http://www.rsov.com/product.php?currencyId=4&prodId=15396&cateId=191&langId=1&manufacturerId=10&sortBy=&sortOrder=
  13. Video of the same RM & USMC training session
  14. Yes the Specter has started to be issued, here are some pictures on Miltary Photos of Royal Marines training with their USMC counterparts at Camp Bastion recently with Light weight Day Sights (LDS as the Specter is known in British service) fitted to their L85s. http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?150728-British-Armed-Forces/page288
  15. Cheers.... I have the raised ACoG mount but I haven't bought a sight yet due to there not being a close to UK spec one available out of the box, all the ones with a doctor fitting being the newer EBS type TA31 ACoG. As for the Specter that's also a non starter for now as all the replicas utilise the x1 to x4 DR body shape while the UK issue one is the fixed mag OS4X. So for the time being I'll be sticking with the SUSAT and using my increasingly limited funds to flesh it out with EMAGs and rail covers.
