I still baffles me why you would want more than one of the same gun? Not you personally Chris but just in general. You see people post pics of their collection and its 5 M4s just with different rails optics etc.

I'm kind of going that direction to be honest.  On a base level I'll only actually have a couple of ARs in each category as it were; few AEGs, 3 TM SOCOMs and 1 GBBr (for now).
 
I get that people who don't have the time to intricately research the many, many kinds of handguards etc just see "yet another M4'".  But especially once you get in to the world of GBBRs and fitting real parts to them, then (IMHO) the mind-blowing amount of parts available to fit means that classifying it as just one type of firearm is pretty much incorrect.  Especially when most airsoft guns do the same thing on the insides.
 
There's also the serious aspects of ancillaries, accessories, LBE and tooling.  I mean sure you can buy an MP5 and then a suitable battery a scope mount and a box of plastic mid-caps won't cost all that much in the grand scheme of airsoft.  But when you've dropped everything you've got in to the very best magazines for your one type of gun, the greatest mag pouches money can buy, expensive accessories that often might not suit another platform and (most importantly) invested significant time in to learning intimately how to work on one platform and then money in to buying very specific tools for that one family of guns... well you kinda wanna stick to your strengths, as it were.
 
Obviously a lot of airsofters out there want a gun wall with as many different models as they can physically get because that's what they think is cool, more power to them.  But I joined up as an armourer because I like working on guns and airsoft lets me do that in my spare time using exactly the guns and parts I personally like the most, rather than the ones a military publication says I have to use (which are probably quite boring a lot of the time).  Not having an argument here with you in any way or saying you're wrong, just putting across my view point for those who might not have considered some of the points above.

some stuff

question is though... 2 identical AEGs, clearly they're not going to stay identical for long so what's going on them?

Fair one Chris. Each to their own.

I have just picked up 3 more glock mags. I now have 6 working normal mags, 1 non working mag and - 1 extended mag.

Need to set up a sniper belt rig so not carrying all my other "stuff" around with me. So if anyone see a OD PLB WAS belt going let me know!

Ah, well, good question; well presented (bet you've never heard that before).  These particular guns obviously pack a fair bit of PTS stuff that's no longer in production which is why I picked them up now even though they're not necessarily going to be the next projects for me.
 
I did however pick up some 2 PTS MIAD sets in FDE and FG before supplies dried up so that settles the grips and colour schemes.  I'm thinking one'll stay 14.5" with the nice mid-length gas system just cause I think it looks cool and one I'll swap down to a 11.5" since I always play CQB these days.  The BCM receiver sets are obviously very shiny and pretty so they'll stay, as will the magpul trigger guards, the Battle Arms selectors and the BCM charging handles.  I'll keep one of the SureFire brakes and probably go for one of the new PTS Griffin devices on the other.  Not sure about stocks or handguards; there's so many options on the RS market that are actually in similar price brackets to the Madbull rails and since the guns are wired for LiPos in the buffer tube I'm not limited by battery storage up front.  Definitely a tube on at least one of them, Midwest or Centurion most likely.

I look forward to seeing the FG one when you get round to doing it, the few guns I've seen that use a lot of it look great- Just most people seem to ignore it and go for FDE which in my opinion at least, is a shame.

I went into a shop for one of them the other day but instead walked out with a TM Glock 17.

Funnily enough I did look at the glocks, but I can't get over the fact that it does not have a hammer.

 

I know that's odd, but it's just me :wacko:

 

I hear they are a good performer though.

TM glock is an awesome little gun, I was dubious myself til I bought one but it shoots straight for a fair old distance and has never once vented a mag on me. Even got 2 full mags worth of BBs from one gas fill last weekend when it was 3C outside, although admittedly it didn't lock back the slide the second time it was empty.

It did feel pretty cool pulling back the hammer but it's another moving part in my eyes which could wear away or break. The glock and sig felt like they shot the same, maybe the glock's recoil was a little bit stronger.

For that price would it not be worth a bottle of Dylon? ;)

 

I have a "warrior assault systems" search active on ebay for myself (hoping for a set of straps for my 901) so I'll shout you if anything pops up.
