If I can remove this bit I may be able to use it in the std hop of the M700

You can get hop rubbers with no bump where the nub connects - as usual i'm fucked if i can remember where i saw 'em though...

Mate, if i was getting off me 'ead I wouldn't mind. At least i'd have something to show for it, as it were... all i'm getting is very poor analgesia and a whole raft of bloody annoying side effects, the least of which is a memory like a dope fiend.

Or you could turn your current one inside out, by putting it on backwards on the wrong end of the barrel, and then use sandpaper to remove the bump from it, or to reduce the size of the bump.  It's quite fiddly, easy to make a mistake and tear the rubber, and much, much easier to do with a soft rubber, especially the turning inside out bit.

Have you actually done that, Liam? If so, with what rubber and sandpaper?

I've done it with a stock G&P rubber, MadBull blue, MadBull red and I tried it with a Prometheus red (I think).  No idea on the sandpaper, was some stuff I found in the shed, was the finest stuff I could find though.  I did it when I was experimenting with r-hops, used the same sandpaper on the r-hop patches and on the nub I made out of a small slice of a thick rubber band and a small patch of milk bottle plastic to keep it rigid.

 

Was easiest to do on the G&P one, the two MadBulls I had a bit of trouble turning inside out, had to cover them in grease and then use a small pair of pliers to actually get grip on them.  The Prometheus wouldn't even turn inside out, was a harder rubber, but whatever I tried, it wouldn't go, didn't want to pull too hard as it'd rip.

 

When I tried that rubber in my L96, the end bit actually stopped BBs from being able to enter the barrel, was an awful rubber, wouldn't buy another hard rubber at all from that experience.  Only bought it because someone recommended it to lift heavy BBs, but a larger/different shape nub allows soft rubbers to lift heavy ammo, and soft rubbers are easier to work with and give a better air seal anyway.

It's spelled "bergen", Richie, like the Norwegian city. Not a big deal but if you start talking to people on certain fb pages and make mistakes like that you'll find yourself on the receiving end of a lot of 'I'm so much more ally than you' bullshit.

 

I've just bought some rechargeable AA's and some 6.5cm solder tabs for batteries because my new XTX446 radio finally arrived and, while the info I had received that they would take 3 AA's is substantially correct, the configuration is a bit funky... still, a bit of soldering is well worth it to get a boss radio brand new for £12.50, even though I have had to wait for yonks to actually receive it!

Some Czech/Soviet surplus AK magazine pouches off eBay. The only style of pouch I've found that fits my AUGs magazines snugly but not too tight.

£10 a pop so I've naturally brought more than I need.

Got an interesting item off fleabay earlier:

221411806664_1.jpg £4.99 posted / can't go wrong! Not sure I actually want a Docter sight on any of my AK's, but soonish I'll have one that is surplus to requirements, so maybe i'll stick it on there to sell.

 

Just started the ball rolling on buying a PDI 6.01x595mm barrel from x-fire.org but they can't just sell you stuff like any normal webby; oh no, they're not content with the tortured Japanglish on their order page, they have to drag it all out by making you wait for a 2nd email with the shipping cost and their PayPal deets :mongface:

 

I'm so tempted to buy a Tokarev too but I'll only regret it in 2 weeks when i have to choose between smoking and eating...

Get the Tokarev Ian... You know you want to...

I have convinced myself to get one since you rarely see them at £80.

Update:
I actually have just purchased one through redwolf plus an actual Tokarev surplus leather holster from eBay. My new toy should be here by Friday haha
