Re: Well done everyone

Took me a few days to find my iPad!
Great game, even though I only lasted the morning, thought the noisy transport was a great effect and was impressed with the " bombing runs" from the jeep!
Looking forward to the next one........hopefully in the SUMMER!

Re: Basic Safety in WW2 Airsoft Games

Safety glasses of your choice are essential, face masks are normally optional, but recommended. Again your choice of mask but something that may blend in, and not look too obvious, youngsters should wear a full mask. Different sites maybe slightly different rules, but safety is always taken seriously.

Re: Does Shoot 'n Scoot still operate

Warren is one of the “good guys” even if he is a slow producer of goods, keep phoning you’ll eventually get through, he’s into other things as well so he’s a very busy man. It might be a while yet......but worth the wait.

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

We did have at the game last December, sniper rifle ruling, 500 fps with scopes, I built my Springfield especially for that game, would have used it earlier on this year but game was postponed. I was expecting to use it on this game too. So I’m not too impressed with this “downgrade “ at this game e...

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

Got it sorted, bloody cable end came off, and a regular nightmare to put back on, pissing down with rain wasn't a great help either. Probably just through wear and tear, nylon ball end clip onto metal ball, couldn't get to it to wire it on for safety, so it could pop out again........but I know now ...

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

Today, I lost 1st and 2nd gears on my old car, now it might only be a pin on the gearshift mechanism, ( hopefully). But it could be inside the the box, I won’t know until tomorrow when I get underneath the old piece of junk. If it’s the gearbox then I don’t suppose it will be sorted in time for the ...

Re: 1928 Thompson cocking bolt

Have got around to doing a bit more to this conversion, was going to make it eventually an “ebb” conversion, but at first wanted to just do a swop over from side to top fake bolt runnning action. Now I knew there wasn’t going to be a lot of room along the top........but there is in fact none at all!...

Re: K98 Springer Projects

Did a bit more to my stocks yesterday, can't stand for to long at the moment, so this took most of the day to do. Also just discovered that I've now just lost the ability to post pic's..........life just gets better don't it!

Re: Bookings open

I will be attending this event, (if my poxy arthritic knee allows to me to actually play!) and as I've said I will take spare weapons up to you are welcome to a lift, and the use of a weapon. This of course is with the " you bend it, you mend it " rule. I'll send a pm with details later. A...

Re: Come on allies

The best I can do, if you can get there, is pick you up at the Dartford Crossing services about 06:00 that morning. Dropping you back off there that night, I live in Essex, and to get to the services is not too far out of my way, wouldn't need any fuel money, to Kettering I'm going there anyway! Als...

Thompson compensator

Just had a few rudimentary compensators made by 3D printing, now hopefully they will stand up to the rigours of skirmishing, if they do I shall get some done with a bit better detailing, is this the sort of thing anyone would be interested in? If they turn out to be tough enough, and the manufacture...

Re: Where can I find a PPS Kar98K?

Try used airsoft, weapon crate, I've even had a good result or two from freeads site, there are quite a few as you probably know already, you will find the same guns come up on different sites, K98's turn up from time to time, just keep looking.
