Re: Bren and again and again

For some reason i am never lucky with springs they never give me jules marked on the packet,way over or way under fps,or some of the cheaper ones loose significant fps over time due to poor heat treatment.Then it means several strip downs to get it site legal,some sites wont even allow half an fps o...

Re: Airsoft MG34

To be honest are'nt all airsoft guns cursed ,found myself pulling my hair out many a time. Airsoft guns demand a lot of precision to work reliably.Often even new guns dont run smooth out the box or soon go south. A local shop near me ,has shelf's of guns people want fixing ,but he says that work doe...

Re: Airsoft MG34

Hi i can see how a MG can give a realistic advantage in a mil-sim type game set up with bolt action guns predominant,this is not likely to be achieved with a group of strangers,you need a structured club.I do have a original k98 vsr conversion i have made,never used it yet though. the front end of t...

Re: Airsoft MG34

The pistol grip is sheet steel welded,the flats on the motor are touching the sheet metal,when i first ran the gearbox it was fine out of the gun,but ROF noticeably went down when when in the gun,i even was getting lock ups.I have used a similar set up before,no issues. I tested the gearbox again ou...

Re: Airsoft MG34

Hi I dont actually think that a support Mg is actually that useful in most airsoft game scenario,due to the close intense action,its actually a disadvantage infact. You will have the same shooting performance of an mp5k and the weight and length make it unwieldy . A real MG is only adjusting its arc...

Re: Gun pattern to card

Yes, some times making a good accurate engineering drawing and them glue it to the metal to cut out is the way to go,you can photo copy it if you are doing more than one.If its sheet metal you can cut it with a beverley shearand a 1mm wide cutting disc on and angle grinder works wonders to,less dis...

Re: Gun pattern to card

Rolls of cream lining wallpaper does it for me,you get loads for little money,is thick enough do transfer pattern to metal and draw around with a marker,lasts well,and with a symmetrical pattern you can fold it on the centre line and only draw half the shape,and then cut it out folded,,get it flat a...

Re: Discussion thread. Kit, scenario, general chat.

Fps is genaraly over rated in airsoft,but with the right ammo and rifle set up there is an advantage in range for a sniper rifle.With a badly set up gun high fps is just potentiayl harmfull to the players with no advantage and have spoken to many with chipped teeth over the years.The crux of the abo...
