  1. Good news for all URGI MK16 enthusiasts! Saw a nice post a few days ago that ZParts have released some MK16 M4 build specific outer barrels for a couple of systems. For me personally the WE outer barrels are very welcome as there are hardly any after market outer barrels for the WE M4 GBBR platform. The new barrels they have released are the Daniel Defense URGI MK16 specific outer barrels in 10.3" (for MK16 9.3" rail build) and 14.5" (for MK16 13.5" rail build). Pricing is around $94 USD for 10.3" and $100 USD for the 13.5". These come with full markings that look correct at first glance. I personally want to get these as they are a nice edition to my current dual upper MK16 URGI inspired build, BUT, I do have stock WE barrels currently that are 10.5" and 14.5" in steel and aluminum respectively that are close to correct and the only advantage with these would be correct length (10.3" vs 10.5") steel material and correct markings, which don't even show when installed under the rail so. Hrmmm... Not sure what to do. Decently priced but still a lot of money for a steel tube that does not do much compared to my current setup. As of now only Airsoft Taiwan seem to have them in stock. Facebook post Facebook screenshot ZParts website http://www.zpartstech.com/ Airsoft Taiwan (NOTE! The product description for some of these are incorrect. The WE version ones are labeled as VFC. Look at the pictures for fitment style and detailed product descsription!) https://ast-gun.airsofttaiwan.com/index.php?route=product/category&category_id=81&manufacturer_id=534
  2. Make: KSC / KWA / Umarex Gun/Model: HK Mk.23 SOCOM Accessories: 1x 26rd magazine, Rail adaptor, Clone SureFire X300V, Original slide, outer barrel and BBU Condition: Mint FPS: Gas dependent, <328FPS Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No/No/No Price/Payment: £425.00 plus shipping, PayPal Pictures: As below, more available on request. For sale is a KSC/KWA HK Mk.23 SOCOM. This is a GBB pistol licensed by Umarex with full HK trademarks. To make this pistol the most realistic and best-performing Mk.23 available, it has been comprehensively and completely upgraded with the very best the aftermarket has to offer, including: Mafioso Airsoft steel slide and outer barrel. This fully CNC-milled kit is notably better than the RA Tech alternative, with a more resilient finish and higher-quality machining. This kit is fully trademarked and no longer available. Volante Airsoft 'Aurora' high-volume BBU. This has a steel housing and aluminium nozzle, both CNC-milled, and is of a much more advanced design than the factory System 7/New System 2 unit. In particular, it has a much larger internal volume, allowing exceptional performance with the very heavy slide and outer barrel despite not using CO2 magazines. RA Tech 150% recoil spring for snappier slide return. G&P limited-edition welded steel KAC OHWS suppressor with full trademarks. This is the most realistic OHWS suppressor on the market, but is not available from the factory in the 16mm CCW thread which all airsoft Mk.23s use. This particular example was professionally rethreaded to suit the gun. Custom-made Mk.23 MIL-SPEC-1913/'Picatinny' rail adaptor, CNC-milled from billet aluminium. This fits over the proprietary HK rail and screws into the front of the trigger guard, just like the original Wilcox and Insight LAMs. This is far more secure than the alternatives currently available on the aftermarket. The gun will be supplied with the original KWA aluminium slide, plastic outer barrel, and complete BBU. If so desired, the clone SureFire X300V pictured with the gun can be included. The gun is in mint condition with no marks. It has never been skirmished; the overwhelming majority of the shots it has ever fired (about 250) were for the function video included in this listing. This pistol retails in the EU for approximately £175, the slide and outer barrel kit retailed (when available) for approximately £230, the BBU for approximately £100, the suppressor for approximately £45 including rethreading, and the rail adaptor for approximately £15 for a total retail value of £565. The SureFire retails for approximately £45. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
  3. Make: Inokatsu Gun/Model: SIG Sauer P226R Masterpiece Accessories: 4x Inokatsu 24rd CO2 Magazine, Guarder Steel Outer Barrel, Guarder Steel Threaded Outer Barrel, VFC Steel Threaded Outer Barrel Condition: Mint FPS: Gas dependent, <350FPS Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: Offers welcome Price/Payment: £575.00 plus shipping For sale is an Inokatsu SIG Sauer P226R Masterpiece edition. This is a steel clone of the Tokyo Marui P226R, and is compatible with the TM P226-series, as well as KJW, WE and other clones of these designs. This is by far the most realistic airsoft P226 available: the slide, extractor, sights, outer barrel and controls are all steel, and the frame is aluminium alloy CNC-milled from billet, as per the real thing. It is serial number UU000080, one of the original batch of 100 guns, and was factory assembled rather than supplied as a kit. It has the steel slide, outer barrel and front and rear sights with the correct PVD finish. The slide is the later (for SIG) external extractor type and has a separate extractor with a blued finish. It has an Inokatsu CNC aluminium frame (which some others don't). The gun has the rather rare P226-02 upgrade kit, with steel trigger, hammer, magazine release, magazine release cover, and unique takedown lever (omitting the unrealistic push-to-safe feature Japanese law forces on TM models) that you can't get elsewhere. To this I have added the Guarder steel decocking lever, slide release and guide rod for a complete set of steel controls. It has a Prime steel faux firing pin installed. It has a genuine SIG Sauer mainspring seat, and is fitted with the discontinued Hogue Extreme Series aluminium grips in the classic matte black chequered West German P226 style. Internally the gun runs the Guarder 150% recoil spring, but not the hammer spring (needlessly stiff, wastes gas), a Nine Ball hop-up rubber and the discontinued 6.03x97mm stainless steel inner barrel. Currently fitted is the full Guarder piston and nozzle assembly and Nine Ball piston head. The gun will be supplied with three further outer barrels - a VFC steel 14mm CCW threaded (fitted, but now one-piece rather than two for strength) barrel, and Guarder steel 14mm CCW threaded and unthreaded (need fitting) barrels. It will be supplied with four working Inokatsu CO2 magazines and a fifth donor magazine. The gun has some cosmetic wear to the frame rail finish (this is absolutely unavoidable with SIGs, even real ones) but is otherwise in mint condition. It has never been gamed; I would estimate a round count of about 250 shots fired. The gun has the most savage kick and report of any airsoft pistol I have ever shot (and I own two more steel pistols and have shot about 15 more). Please note that in this video the gun is fitted with a dry-fire adapter to stop it locking back. This pistol gun was £1,005 prior to tax and shipping, but currently retails for £600. The rest of the components - prior to tax and shipping - add up to about £350 for a total of about £950. I am open to swaps and part-exchanges, so please feel free to make offers. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
  4. Make: Inokatsu Gun/Model: Colt 1911A1 100th Anniversary Accessories: 1x KJW 1911A1 28rd CO2 Magazine Condition: Mint FPS: Gas dependent, <350FPS Splits/Swaps/Part Exchange: No/No/Glock magazines Price/Payment: £375.00 plus shipping For sale is an Inokatsu Colt 1911A1 100th Anniversary. This is a full-steel clone of the Tokyo Marui M1911A1, and is compatible with the TM 1911-series, as well as KJW, WE and other clones of these designs. This is a full-steel gun: the frame, slide, outer and inner barrel, controls, sights, hop-up unit and all internal components are made of high-grade heat-treated steel, not the pot metal almost all sub-$1k airsoft pistols are made of. It is in mint condition with only ~250rds fired, and has never been skirmished. There are no marks, scratches, scuffs or other aesthetic issues. The gun is compatible with TM 1911-series magazines, but is supplied with a KJW CO2 magazine. In reasonably rapid fire the gun will shoot about 30rds (slightly in excess of one magazine) with a deafening report and absolutely vicious recoil. I cannot stress this enough: shooting this is not like shooting a regular pistol. The pistol suffers from one problem. If: The safety is engaged, and The grip safety is depressed, and Tremendous force is applied to the trigger, The pistol can disengage the safety and drop the hammer. This is unlikely to be a potential safety issue, but be aware that it is possible. This pistol currently retails for £525.00 inside the EU. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    GHK AUG Magnet Test

    Can anyone that owns a GHK AUG take it apart and tell me what parts are composed of at least some iron (probably steel)? I am interested in what exactly GHK is using for materials in the rifle. I know that the outer barrel is some sort of aluminium alloy (a few manufacturers make a steel replacement, however). The frame is plastic, as it is on the real AUG. However, what about the trigger box, bolt carrier, fire selector, and upper receiver (including the integrated scope)?
  6. This is my review and thoughts of the Merlin BBU that Volante airsoft released http://www.volanteairsoft.com/?product=merlin-blow-back-unit To be honest I’ve read a few things about that engine, I had steel and brass guns but I was reluctant on whether if I really needed it! Well now I know for sure how wrong was I!! Well I received the engine in a nice small package saying on the outside with big letters “VOLANTE-AIRSOFT MERLIN BBU SERIES”. Well that was a first! The box itself made me think “something wonderful and with attention to detail is in there”!! When I opened the box there were 2 plastic bags in there. One with the Merlin in and one with 5 dedicated to Merlin gas route seal gaskets for the mags. Taking out of the plastic the Merlin BBU the first thing I thought was how solid and heavy it felt !! The BBU itself it’s made out of steel, the nozzle has zero play right or left, there’s nothing lose there, the return nozzle spring is in the BBU itself. So nothing falls if you flip up side down. Well that was a first for me!! That nozzle spring on the regular BBUs gave me some nerves on some builds! The BBU itself is really really nice, personally I haven’t seen anything like it and for the first time I can see clearly who was the manufacturer of that thing! 'Mine is a v 1.8 Merlin and had a black plastic front cap but as Volante told me now it is replaced into stainless steel! A few numbers before I continue just to have an idea what I’m testing.. These are the weights of a few other BBU’s I had and a weight comparison of the steel and an exactly the same aluminum slide. The BBU’s had the nozzle and return spring on. Stock Marui Hi Capa BBU w/stock nozzle: 48.5 grams Airsoft Surgeon BBU w/ AS nozzle: 28.3 gram UAC BBU w/ aluminum UAC Nozzle: 26.7 grams Merlin BBU: 49.1 grams The Steel IMM slide : 215.5 grams ProG4 Alum IMM slide: 80.0 grams Installation Well this was the gun I wanted to test it… A Open class steel SV IMM.. The installation was pretty strait forward, the only thing I did was to sand down the 2 side tabs of the BBU cause it was going in the slide really really tight! 5 mins with a file, I took it slow and it’s steel … Takes some more time to sand it down than aluminum. The other thing I did was to sand down the rear screw, the one that hold the BBu on the slide, the screw was about 1.5mm too long and was pushing the nozzle forward. This gave me sluggish recoil and action. The other thing you really HAVE to replace is the magazine’s gas route seal gasket. This is required cause the Merlin has about to 2mm forwarded gas inlet port. I didn’t do anything else to the slide or the BBU, the slide moves back and forth freely, without catching on something. Next stage … Shooting!! Well.. What can I say now! That thing transformed! Well I don’t have proper equipment to take a nice video but I used my cell phone camera to capture the second gas fill of the mag! That thing has massive recoil and really crisp and smooth action and still shakes my camera, that I hold with my other hand!! It’s really impressive! The sound is about the same but that thing has now an increased recoil, I know not exactly you’re after a open class race pistol but I’m not going to take part to AIPSC race with that gun! This is the short video I did I reassure you I’ll take some more video’s !! The Merlin BBU is something you don’t see everyday, it’s really cool looking piece that certainly improved a lot my steel gun. The recoil is massive and yet can empty the entire mag when rapid shooting. I highly recommend this piece, sure it’s not for AIPSC but you will love the sound and feel it give you. I will take this gun to a CQB skirmish later next month! I always wanted to skirmish a open class gun!! I think it will be fun! I will update this thread with videos and other experiences along the way! TheMerlin and the other BBU I own Wolf
