my battrys a real tight fit too.

my buttplate coloses and locks (with a lot of pushing)

but is about 1mm out to the rear when its closed.

as long as it locks your ok.

try removeing the plastic like he said.

the good thing is once its in, you wont need it out again for at least 2 game days :D maybe three

I had the same problem with a 3700, so just got a friend to remove the 4th cell. So its now 7.2 rather than 8.4, but I havent noticed any difference in performance.

Hi all, I'm new to WW2 airsofting and am looking for some advice on what gun and where best to get it from for a Brit Para outfit.

am looking to go in to sniping as I'm not half bad at it, I was thinking SMLE with scope or failing that, "finding" a KAR98K and fitting a scope, any sugestions? :D

Hi, have a look on the British section for kit recommendations. Any WWII weapon is acceptable - all sides made use of captured weapons. :)

For an Enfield, Warren at Shoot and scoot.
If you want a K98 then either a Tanaka (gas) or buy a JG Bar 10 (springer) and do a conversion using a real K98 stock yourself. Sgt heide & boshman have produced excellent rifles and their tips on construction are available on this forum. Even with my limited skills and tools I have been able to make a usable K98 (look alike) sniper for less than £200. When considering a Tanaka will cost nearly £400 and an Enfield nearly £500 its not a bad option :good:

great, thanks for the help guys, I'm going to wait for the weapon for a while anyway, need to build up some funds first, and also need to find some rig to wear aswell, I've managed to make some friends in the ex-gov stores over in Cambridgeshire, but can't get back there for another couple of weeks.

also, is anybody else having problems getting on the the SOF website?

Yes, there is something wrong with their website (and it's not just the prices :wink: )

I heard they are officially changing their name* - that might be why the site is down?

























* not really but they are not a retailer I would recommend.

Don't forget you can save yourself a few (hundred) pounds by not putting a scope on.

Thats where I'm well off, I already have a spare scope that just needs a re-paint, and should look WW2-ish by the time I'm finished, but the Iron sight idea will work in all types of weather, would a M1A1 work for a Para look, just as a starter?

I need you to recommend me a gun. My supplier contacted GunnerAirsoft and he told me that thompsons (cyma) won't be there for 3 months. I was thinking on buying Cyma m14 and playing a bit, and later to buy AZR kit. The problem is I don't own any gun yet, I have played airsoft only 2 times. I am 174 cm tall and I don't have weak arms. Any tips?

PS. I'd apreciate if someone could tell me where to buy Cyma m1a1

Well the M14 is a very good gun and you are not a midget, so I recommend trying it.

If you really want a Thompson then why not wait for one?
That said, an M14 would be a good alternative.
Can be used as a 'counts as' for WWII airsoft.
Is the prefered base for an M1 aeg conversion
With a hi cap mag you can also use it on non WWII walk on days at your local skirmish site.

My first WWII airsoft was the agm MP40, followed by an M14 which is now converted to an M1 AEG.
