Have sorted out what appears to be a mini-mountain of gear for next weekend. I'm sure I usually travel lighter than this?

Cheers

Granger, the WE Hi-power doesn't have a hop up. You can fashion something to it but nothing out the box.
Why do you always carry that umbrella?

I think it actually does, but you have to strip the gun down and adjust a grub screw with an Allen key or something like that. The earlier ones weren't provided with said grub screw, but airsoft world make a point to say they they do now have a hop up in the page title.

This. Bit of a pain to get to but it is there.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the grub screw is beneath the barrel? I heard it works a bit with the screw, but still not a proper hop up.

Yes I believe you are correct. Not a conventional hop by any means but it works better than nothing. From the reviews that I've read it's actually fairly decent.

Ach, I must try it then. Any idea what size of a grub screw it is?

Discovered that I am in the free copy of Guns mart that was given away at War and Peace:

These forums get a mention as a result (although they got the url slightly wrong) and Dadio's work is called 'very convincing' :happydance:

Today I finished putting away all my stuff from the weekend, and started sorting kit out for King Zog. Many thanks to Charlie for explaining which round to wear the chest mounted gas mask bag!

Today I popped down the farm to see my father and the Vickers .303 he's building. Giving a hand into the feeding issues. Hefty beast though. Hopefully it'll be combat ready soon...
