Well, they were born out of Mauser in Germany.  I believe there was (might still be) a H&K UK division setup that was responsible for various things related with the L85A2, but yeah 'we' owned H&K for a bit, but it was sold back in 02 during a restructure within BAe (bad move).

 

There's no Royal Ordnance any more, all just became BAe long ago.

I met a recently retired BAe VP at a wedding a few years ago. My dad worked for BAC then BAe after the privatisation pretty much his entire working life and I visited various airshows, open days, etc. as a kid, so we got chatting.

 

A bone of contention appeared when I explained that my time at uni was spent studying Sound Technology. In his mind there is no difference between my technical studies and a content driven Media Studies type degree, which he regarded with derision. Regardless of the massive difference, I pointed out that media is one of the UK's largest exports these days. There followed a brief exchange which ended with him opining that the reason why the Tories had had to shut down British heavy industry was because British workers would not accept wages and conditions comparable to those in developing countries and that not only was this a bad thing, it was the fault of Trade Unions.

 

He went on to recapitulate and, whilst still ignoring the point about media being a huge export market and necessary in the absence of closed industies, claim that the reason our universities are churning out graduates with degrees in Media Studies (for doing nothing but watch TV lol) and Sociology (so they are qualified to hold people's hands while they cry about problems they are too lazy to fix for themselves *sigh*) is also the fault of Trade Unions... for raising the expectations from life of British workers!

 

No word of a lie, the bloke is nothing short of a fascist. I asked him a number of innocuous questions sprinkled into our further conversation and the upshot was that, in his opinion, his views are shared by the entire upper echelon of BAe management. Pretty scary when you consider that these people have managed to obtain a de facto monopoly over arms supply to the UK Govt. and, despite the loudly espoused philosophy of free markets producing the best products and services when left entirely to their own devices, free, for eg, from Govt. interference, they have achieved this gargantuan market position with UK Govt. subsidy.

Doesn't surprise me, they rip off the MoD at every turn.  Same as every big company that contracts for the government really, it's all a shambles.  I'll leave it for another thread rather than gun pictures though to save going too off-topic.

Marui MP7A1 GBB (BEST GUN EVAR FOR CQB) and a Marui HK416D - as yet untested as I only got it this morning but the ROF for a stock gun on an 8.4v NiMh is staggering as is the trigger response in semi... so much so that I cannot get it to lock up in semi no matter how fast I pull the trigger!

I think I might have to buy an MP7 now. Dear lord.

If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.

The gun as it was before the previous owner "fagpulled" it as some of the undesirables on this forum would say.

^ That is EXTREMELY nice. I always wanted a magpulled (or fagpulled... as some people have called it :|) M7A1! Couldn't find one though, so I settled for a King Arms M&P15 MOE instead.

 

Might upload some pics once I've got it kitted out!

I'm not sure of the attraction of plastic guns, apart from their weight. It's kind of different if the real gun is plastic (like a G36 or UMP or something) but I'd never even consider a plastic gun which has a metal version available.

Exactly! The chance of the guns body breaking is more likely too.

Oh I dunno, it did take a while to get popular in airsoft, and only once it got really popular did the implication that it was of low quality/inferior and therefore (apparently) homosexual become the in-thing to post all over the place.

 

I only started in 06 and I'm fairly sure PTS barely existed at that point.
