Well, I got to the U.S. of A and realized something about my current situation pertaining to this fabulous sport. I had basically no useable guns, an extremely limited load out, no gas, and only a few cheap batteries and BBs to go around... So let the games begin!

First off, I was working at the Rogers Holster Company, so I was able to get the following for cheap:
1x ProFit 578 left black holster
3x ProFit 578 left shims
1x ProFit 578 right shim
1x Universal Magazine Pouch belt FDE
4x Universal Magazine Pouch MOLLE FDE
4x Universal Magazine Pouch MOLLE black
1x Rogers Quick Attach Sight Mount
1x Rogers Rail Light
2x MLS Male FDE
2x MLS Female FDE
1x MMLS Male FG
1x MMLS Female FG
1x Paddle Mount left black
1x Belt Mount left black

So that got me the pouches and holsters I needed. Then I needed clothing and such. From PROPPER:
2x PROPPER STL II FDE
2x PROPPER STL II black

Now I can look proper (pun intended). But unless I want to throw budget BBs at people, I need guns. From my new US forum:
KAA Stoner LMG (happiness)
E&L AKS-74 (finally got an AK)
2x G&P AK 130 rnd midcaps
4x CYMA AK 130 rnd midcaps

From Tokyo Model:
1x Archives Ivory Frame
1x WEI Tech frame black/gold
1x Xcortech tracer/chronograph

From Evike:
1x 8.4v 1600MaH stick
1x smart charger
2000 0.25g Madbull Red Tracer BBs
1x Angel Customs 3 stage G17 recoil spring

From Airsoft Barracks (my local store):
1x WE G17 mag
1x Umarex Blow Back Gas
1x Python TBB 6.02mm G17 barrel

I think that's enough for now :)

Ah you have access to Evike without the ridiculous charges... Always wanted a specific item from there, but with all the charges, it comes to too much for what it is... They've got some great stuff though


Don't think too hard, your brain will overheat...

TMC's copy of the Crye AVS.  Im usually not a fan of anything TMC make but seeing as they have recently started using genuine Multicam material I thought id give it a shot and for £77 shipped from ShooterCB,  Im very impressed.  Much more solidly put together than any of their older stuff.  Only thing im unsure of is if it will accept real Crye Zip On panels and dissapointed it didnt come with the quick release cables, although I never use it anyway (It is one way of attaching the multiple cummerbunds though)
 
Comes with the Front M4 Flap
3 Band skeletel Cummberbund
1 Band Cummerbund
 
Ive added myself
Crye Shoulder pads
TS Crye JPC Mbitr pouches
Mayflower assault backpanel
Internal padding from my CPC
 
 


I can't seen to get on their site, I'm interested in the TMC stuff. I got their DC3 clone which isn't bad :)

I wouldn't say that... They have a £22 charge for green gas transport... Seems I can't get WE gas anywhere...

What is it you want? I have family with me now who still live in the UK who could possibly bring something back and ship it to you.

Can you do a review of the hexmags when you've played them for a while? :)

 

Given how many mags I have (I tend to use my PTS TMAGs), the fact I often use TM recoil guns or my GBBRs and the rarity of actually getting to games, I'll be honest it could take literally 2-3 years before I even manage to use them enough times to give much of an opinion.  In the event I do decide I fancy using them in an AEG at a game in the near future then I'll certainly post up about them on my FB/Insta to comment on how they do.

 

Right now I can say they feel well built and solid, one has already passed a drop test on to rough stone.  Fitment in the one gun I've tried was rather loose and I could actually pull the mag out without pressing the release button, but that was an Avalon receiver and nobody else runs those.  I'll try them in a G&G and G&P at some point.

 

Let us know how those Hexmags go; I was going to grab some myself but went for the EPMs instead.

 

IMHO, for reliability and durability the EPMs are the right choice, PTS mags are almost excessively well built.  The Hexmags are not your cheap chinese midcaps by any means, they're surprisingly heavy, nice matte finish and well moulded overall.  I think they look cooler than the EPM too, but for skirmishing I'd predict the PTS option will hold up longer.  I wouldn't feel as confident doing the same torture test on a Hex as I conducted on an EPM (smashed the hell out of it, ran it over and I still use it every game).

 

Well, I got to the U.S. of A and realized something about my current situation pertaining to this fabulous sport. I had basically no useable guns, an extremely limited load out, no gas, and only a few cheap batteries and BBs to go around... So let the games begin!

 

Be interested to hear more about your experience of moving over there mate, especially getting in to the tactical industry.  Once I get out of the mob one of my potential plans is to try and work in either the weapons or gear industry state side.

One a side note out of curiosity, did you not get any of your airsoft stuff surface shipped over there?

They are nice, only thing I noticed was any moulded mags like pmags and the ares amoeba mags are a bit of a right fit. However they are nice and light, work well etc

Would be good to stick on a PC, just trying to get the swift clips is a pain lol

I think the EPMs are super ugly - the Hex ones look pretty cool, but that's probably because they have a real steel counterpart. The EPM just looks like an E-Mag or P-Mag ripoff (which I suppose it kind of is really); I'm not a huge fan of the big base plate or the tacky fake bullet window. I know you can remove the baseplate and put a ranger one on there, and that the window shows when the mag is full but still.

I bought a black hexmag when I got the G&G CM18, I like the look of it and it is much slimmer than the G&G 120. Going to test feeding it tomorrow, if it works well i'll get another, in a different colour - not sure I have a need for lots of 120 midcaps though, but if I like one of the 3 colours I might buy a 5pack.

I did not. I was going to a UK university but had applied to FIT as a long shot. About a week ago I got accepted (after I was already in the US for my annual summer trip) to FIT, and it's been hectic ever since. I will get my guns over eventually, but I'm surey parents won't be willing to ship them until my first report card in December. So until then I have to make do. The Stoner is a little present to myself as I have wanted a LMG for awhile but never had the money in the UK, and my site was The Mall, which is mostly single shot anyway, so a box mag is pointless. But not here. The AK was something I picked up cheap as it has a broken air nozzle in the gearbox, which is an easy and cheap fix. And I have always wanted a wood and steel ak.

I don't actually work for Rogers, although I am a likly candidate to own the shooting school once Mr Rogers retires. What I was doing this summer was working with one of their graphic designers as well as advertising to local Airsoft shops about their products, and getting Rogers into using Airsoft weapons as cheap alternatives to the expensive "blue" guns they have to use to display products.

Didn't really want the plate carrier, but the shipping was $10 with it, and $60 if I wanted to order it on it's own later - that it was £50 cheaper than Military1st(out of stock), was not really a factor.

 

Got this lot in, the only pouch on the plate carrier is the torch pouch - need to order an admin pouch, sling and an actual torch...

Hi everyone I finally settled on my first AEG and picked it up earlier. I grabbed a ICS GSG-522 (trusty MP5 to me) and got a mask while I was at it.

Good choice, ICS guns are pretty solid starter guns :)

There not good starter guns they are just good guns but I know what you mean. Ics have some of the best stock internals around and their MP5'S are probably the best on the market. Good choice.

Combat_Sets_AK_74_Bayonet.jpg

...the only plastic AK-74 bayonet on offer, since the Toy Soldier one went out of production.

 

Turned out it was OOS and they had no idea when/if they would be able to get them again. It was so long ago I'd given up hope...

 

But this afternoon I got an email saying they had some and to pay within 3 days... woohoo! ¥1440 + ¥1290 shipping = £14.22 :lol:

 

However don't get excited if you want one: they are showing as OOS on Hobby Link Japan's webby - but it may be worth emailing 'em...
