Never had an issue with it. I upgraded the spring and then couldnt get the box back in.

managed to get the new plate on with out taking the box apart but then it wouldn't go back in.

35 was from Zero One. Called Combat south (my local shop) and they said 40 plus part and if they break it I will have to buy another one!

It is all down to the G&P 8mm gearbox being a bitch. Friend of a friend has just started up and he said 22.50 all in.

They way I look at it is that there must be a way to get it all in and working, because it was working, so it's a matter of figuring it out.

In the factory they may have had a custom jig or tool to hold bits together so they could all be slid into the receiver at once with just a light spray of oil. You might find that some judiciously placed tape with trailing ends so they can be pulled out after might help.

Then again, 22.50 is a fair price... It'd just bug the arse off me until I'd sussed it out!

Gotta be the A&K? If anything purely because there are hardly any other VN 60s available on the market.

Yep A&K, absolutely awesome, gun is rock steady, the box mag is a bit of weak point though.

at the risk of hi-jacking this thread, my new car, only 1100, and the insurance should cost 900.

not bad for a first time driver :lol:

yes, my M60 is on top, and i have every intention of fashioning a cradle and removable mount for it on the back, possibly a dual mount if i decide to get a second pig :D.

and this is going to be my last post on this section of the forum for a very long time.

my local is actually quite large and flat, and normally the marshalls are lenient, sometimes the landlord can be a bit of an arse though :(.

Since G1098airsoft have taken over a MONTH to NOT send me my ACOG, I have decided to cancel my order with them and place the same order at RSOV.

Anyone know what their standard delivery time is?

I want this beast before July: http://www.rsov.com/...a...4&cateId=49

I bought a few bits from RSOV literally about 2 days after the website launched a few years ago, and they were pretty good overall. Last time I used them however (needed a madbull DD barrel nut spanner that nobody else had) after many years of not, they took bloody ages to dispatch it, literally weeks (pushing near a month) to send out one tiny little item. Whether that was in isloated case I don't know, this was about 6 months ago and the only time I'd used them in around 2-3 years previously. EBairsoft have really turned themselves around recently though I've found, massively improved comms and dispatch times.

The non-ACM-focused sites like WGC, UnCo and 'soft global also carry a fair mount of budget level optics and they charge just the same kind of prices on shipping as the likes of RSOV and Gunner.

2nd hand V3 gearbox with what looks like an ICS Bore Up Cylinder (I've yet to have it to bits)

Guarder 50 Hop Bucking

The trouble is that the Teflon Grease and SHS Shims I've ordered haven't arrived from HK yet and I want my AK in tip top working order for this Saturday and right now, the Fire Selector is a bit hit'n'miss because I've knackered the gearbox shell thread that holds it :(

Well, 4 months of extra pay and bugger all to spend it on..

Posted Image

Though I'm currently still waiting on a large order from G-Code, as well as other kit from Mil-Spec monkey, BritKitUSA, WGC Shop, Bitter End Airsoft, VZ Grips and Hardpoint Equipment. But what you see there is pretty much everything I purchased while in the Falklands.
