Still needed a fabric holster anyway, and will no doubt have a NUPROL one too for without a light. 

Speaking of which might look at getting the Nextorch WL10 in the new year.

 

Can I ask where you guys bought yours? Because they're only £40 off a website called FFX yet all the tactical gear / airsoft retailers charge £50-£60

 

Mine came from Socom Tactical. I was quite surprised that the Nextorch range isn't that much cheaper buying from HK to be honest. Well worth the money in my opinion whatever you get it for!

Yeah from allt good stuff I've seen about them I'd say they're the definitely best pistol mounted light for the money IMO

I know SureFire etc would be better but won't spend over £100 for one

Do you have a lens protector for yours as well? Would get some lexan to put over but then not sure how it'd actually attach.

No lens protection on mine. I like to live dangerously!

WE NUPROL G-Series / EU-Series Holster - £17.99

Emerson FAST Helmet (PJ, Black) - £25

 

For the Emerson helmet, definitely the best price in the UK AFAIK. Was thinking of buying one last night off AliExpress from China and was gonna be £20. 

So only another fiver is definitely worth it. Other places seen them go for £30-£35 for the cheaper economy version. 

 

New holsters are great, much better than expected. Retention / construction quality seems very close to the genuine real deal IMI. 

Review to come, video made too but needs editing and uploading. 

 

Dad bought:
WE NUPROL F226 Holster - £17.99

WE NUPROL F226 Magazine Holster - £13.99

WE F226 Magazine - £22.95 (I think) 

 

Tempted to buy a Warrior Sabre leg rig...but in my experience they don't work out well for me since I am short. 

Viper holster I got off Loz is great but I need to sort of bend down to grab it which ofc isn't great

Next purchases will probably be an extra Glock mag and WE magazine holster, was looking to get them today as well but they didn't have any mags left.

Got home to find my shiny new 30th Anniversary Metal G&G M4 had arrived. Here's a pic of the fancy logo on the receiver with the unique serial number, for those wondering about what's different on these ones:

Just noticed that the flash hider on my (not quite as shiny as it is supposed to be) new G&G 30th Anniversary M4 which I bought, is broken at the tip. I've emailed them about it; hopefully they will send me a replacement one rather than making me go through all the hassle of packaging the thing up and sending the entire gun back to them and having them send me another. I would have thought that'd make more sense, since it would cost them less to stick a flash hider in an envelope than it would to courier a new gun to me.

i think it's meant to be like that. if you mean like this then it's just the design  GP087A-L.jpg

The flash hider is plastic, part of the tip of it has a bit chipped out of it, in roughly a triangular shape. It actually looks a little bit like its a deliberate cut out to compensate for muzzle climb, and at first I though it was, but when you look closely at the flash hider, you can see it is part which is broken off as it is a very obvious rough snapped edge.

If like below, its supposed to be that way

Nah, I know what you mean, and it may be meant to look like the pic you posted, as I know some flash hiders are like that, but if you look at this pic, you can see it is very obviously not a smooth finish if there is meant to be a compensating cut out part, so if that is supposedly what the finished part looks like, then it is as rough as a bear's arse and quite clearly not up to par. Check out these pics of it, that is very obviously a chipped edge, not smooth at all. Of course I could file it smooth, and if they tell me they're all like that then i will do so, but frankly, it's very ropey casting and QC if they really are all like that:

yes that doesn't look like too much of a smooth cut, I guess it probably is not meant to be like that...

G&g ones tend to look a bit crap like that probably just one that's slightly worse done.
