just to warn you that the actual soldering iron is of low quality, and has great difficulty heating the solder to an appropriate temperature, the rest of the kit is pretty decent.

 

Interesting, will have to test it out, thanks for the heads-up.  Luckily I've got my grandad's old soldering iron that was handed down and probably made in the 50s but still gets hot pretty much instantly, so if the new option isn't up to task I should still be alright overall.

Those old skool soldering irons are great for getting hot quick, but just be aware that the semiconductors in MOSFET set ups can be destroyed by overheating. If you're going to solder onto the board with a spanking iron, use a crocodile clip on the nearest components to act as a heat sink.

Not to worry ian, never so much as touched a gun with a MOSFET inside.

 

If I spent money on that kind of thing I wouldn't have as much to spunk on aesthetics and other frivolities.  Gun might lock up on semi, but at least it's pwettyful.

Today I did buy...some white nail polish...

 

For filling in the trades and 'safe/fire/auto' on my gun, always think they look nicer in white!

 

And I can also now get that French nails manicure I've always longed for to boot!

Was looking to get a pair of Merrell sawtooths but couldn't justify the price of importing them when I could probably pick up something similar in the uk for half the price. I was browsing eBay and came across some TMC Sawtooth copies and for 19.99 I thought I'd give them a try. So far I'm really impressed with them. For the price the quality is superb. Obviously not as good as the merrells but for once or twice a month airsoft use they are fine. Ill update once I've used them for a while to see just how they hold up.

New warrior stuff,

PLB belt, firestorm hard knuckle gloves and 3 'quick mags' all in OD (obviously).

The quick mags are like hsgi's tacos only a fair bit cheaper, quite happy with the lot- just need to get to a game to try it all out.

Assuming you're talking to me? just under £20 or there abouts, they seem decent enough, all real leather and nomex, sizing fits my hand better than oakley's gloves do- i've always found the oakley's fingers a little short.

Obviously I've not used them whilst skirmishing yet but they seem pretty solid and should hold up to abuse well enough.

£20? They look pretty good, most of my gloves are getting a bit tatty so I might purchase a pair. Give us an update on them after you've skirmished with them?

Actually I was in a nail salon with my g/f last year and i was so bored i asked if they would do me a manicure while i waited for she-whom-must-be-indulged's fancy pants falsies to be applied and painted... "NO WAY," came the stern admonition, "We don't do men." No explanation, in fact a complete refusal to elaborate... fuck 'em, eh?

Those gloves look almost as good as Southcombe Bros'. Got a linky?

I had the old Warrior Firestorm gloves and they were decent but I found the leather fingers mean doing anything near fiddly was hard and they seemed to require very long and skinny fingers to fit entirely correctly.

Eventually the side stitching on one of the gloves gave out and I decided to switch the Mechanix.

 

However, that was a while ago so will be interested to see how they've improved them

Didn't you cut the fingers off? That may have contributed to this :P

 

 

I'll get a comparison compared to both oakley SI assault gloves, vipers gloves and some mechanix gloves on saturday so shall report back after that after seeing the lot together.

Let me know how you get on with the quick mag pouches. You use PMAGs too don't you? I was wondering if they would be a bit long and prone to wobbling out.
