Gotta love the jack's lol

 

Just picked up a G&G GC 30th anniversary as a base, then I intend on stripping it and starting over,  as I've had suppliers send me parts to help with the build :)

 

I'll be making the thread as a beginners guide to HPA, calling out where i got parts, what parts I recommend, any issues I've had and general FAQ's I can cover since starting in HPA. 

 

Hopefully will start on wednesday once the gun turns up. Aiming for a DMR build :)

Avon Skin So Soft Dry Oil Spray £3.39 for 150ml bottle.

Fully intend to see if it works as a mosquito repellent and at such a low price it's got to be worth a shot.

 

weirdly a bottle of the spray arrived at my house last night, she listened to something airsoft and it stayed in her head! haha :D

 

i did say that it may be the bath oli i needed, would need to check and that ive yet to be ALLOWED to go to a woodland site......

 

she said if i dont use it, she'll have it!

 

technically i did buy this as it was my money! haha

Well when I used it at my last two woodland games I didn't get bitten, but that may be due to the weather changing.

Edit: Purchased a rail mount for my GBB VZ61 for ~£24 since my attempts at creating one didn't go as planned.

BrainExploder off YouTube has a seperate website where he sells 3D printed copies of the mounts he makes for use on his weapons:

s-l140.jpg Cooler Fan Version Outdoor Paintball Airsoft Glasses Goggle Ski anti-fog lens £24 posted - i read a good review on fb just now & the ESS knock offs i bought with the fan in the top centre turned out to be a bit sh*t, but the geezer reckons these have the fan at the side and that it circulates the air nicely - we shall see in a month...

 

Ian, how did you get on with these?

 

sorry it was Jan so not sure if you have reviewed??

Ian, how did you get on with these?

The fan is not powerful enough, so i bought a second pair and added the both fans to one set - the trouble is that they have an electronic controller rather than just a battery and switch, so i was thinking i would be able to bodge them together onto a new battery pack with a single switch, maybe even overdrive them a bit, actually i've had to use the controllers side by side in a molle pouch. Sounds ok, eh? Well, the controllers have some kind of timer element and they do not work in synch, one seems to work better than the other...

 

So my advice is don't bother.

 

For me:

s-l140.jpg Soviet Afghan War era Winter Mitts - £8.30 posted from Doncaster ~ eBay

s-l140.jpg 50g CT-2 Teflon Grease - £3.99 posted ~ eBay

 

Oh yeah, and i ballsed up my order to redzone.com.pl - i ordered a Berezka camo helmet cover for 6B27 helmet instead of 6B7 1M - i was just about to hit send on a snotty email to 'em when i realised it was my mistake - phew! So I've just put in an order for the correct one - £10-odd posted from Poland :D

Needed a sling and saw a video on YouTube for the Irene Adaptive Sling (IAS) - it is a 1 point to 2 point sling that has mash hooks (which I find much easier to fit on sling mounts).  It cost $52.90 so about £34 (including P&P) from a US supplier Command Airsoft Technologies on eBay, had to email them to get the shipping price for the UK.

I've bought from them before - i got a free patch woohoo! (Never actually worn it mind - in fact if anyone wants it, £1 + postage gets it)

So I was looking for a berezka KLMK/KZS for someone else when I came across the following. I 1st saw one several months ago, although i forget where & it could well have been this same eBay seller, but anyway I must have been skint because it's too cool to miss out on...

$(KGrHqVHJCcFBoZPgbC0BQlTNI5+l!~~60_57.J

...the Bulgarians call it "Frogskin" pattern - £41.22 posted from Sofia! :D

But as you can see it's a cross between Strichtarn and stripped down Flecktarn - i'll bet it's excellent camo in the rain! I'm not going to go the whole hog with a Bulgarian loadout (unless the gear drops into my lap at similar 'daft-not-to' prices) but it will make a nice base for a post apocalyptic stylee'n'ting...

Bit of a warning to anyone that bought the Baofeng radio from that one seller on AliExpress recently - they've been found to have 'suspicious activity'. If you've been asked to open a dispute with them then don't - I've been getting strange messages from them and recently AliExpress froze their account to investigate. You'll get a refund soon if there are any signs of fraud.

 

Here's the e-mail:

 

We have suspended this seller’s account because we detected unsafe trading activities. All of your pending orders with this seller have been frozen for your security.

We have asked this supplier to provide supporting evidence, such as shipping documents and qualification certificates. If the supplier is unable to provide the evidence or if the evidence is insufficient, we will close the order and process the refund for you within 5 business days (In case of certain circumstance, the processing period may be extended).

We apologize for this inconvenience. At AliExpress we are committed to ensuring you enjoy a safe shopping experience. We will continue striving to improve. Your understanding and cooperation are highly appreciated, if you have any question or suggestion, please click here

Your understanding and cooperation are highly appreciated.

 

 

Sincerely,
AliExpress Trade  Security Department

All legit by the way. My name and order number were in the e-mail but I've just pasted the important stuff.
