Those Forcecore/E&L AKs on Gunfire seem like a solid deal,almost too good to be true. 180 euro for an AKS-74U,full steel and looks like they just have the old generation E&L internal parts which are by no means bad. Is there a catch to them? That's Dboys money and E&L quality is far higher.


Well a friend of mine has shown me a comparison chart between a regular e&l and Forcecore and there's only very small differences such as regular motor instead of high torque. I'll try and do a full review once I get it as there seems to be literally no information around on them.

I have a full E&L one. If you just used it as a prop gun or a wall ornament, it would be absolutely perfect. Looks great, feels great, really solid gun with little wobble. Now for an Airsoft use...

Still, yes. Mine was second hand and broken, but is apparently working now. A full E&L costs a bit more than that, and even after paid tech work I still saved. I'll report back one I get it from the shop over this weekend about performance, I am ever so hopeful :)

How is the black gas?

Been tempted to try some myself

I like it, decent fps in the pistols I have used it previously and chucks my TAG grenades a decent distance too for when I CBA to use CO2 :-)

Awesome, how much would it cost me? :P

Well, if I pay cost, ie what they would cost including shipping, then that gives you your money back. But you'll have to pay the postage to me from your gaff, because obviously I'm not going to pay more than what I could get them for from gunfire.pl myself, eh...

Do you want them then? Because my plan was to just spray paint them

Here's the force core Aks-74mn I bought. Arrived in 4 days from Gunfire. Not bad considering it has to come all the way from Poland. Very happy with the solid feel to it.

Up to you... I'll take them if you don't want them, but if you'd rather not lose out on the postage and keep 'em yourself to spray, that's cool too.

Steel sear arrived, as I expected, it's just a heavy lump of steel. More stuff to come.

Here we go again: Ordered a AirsoftPro reinforced piston for my SVD, the swap-able piston head is a nice feature.

PDi W-hold rubber,from Xfire. 4.40 euro.

 

They had free shipping,and mine has begun to wear out and has been damaged(Left the gun in the damp,cold attic,with a little bit of mud,dust and water contamination  :ph34r:

 

I find it offensive that small cast chunks of rubber cost me 10+ euro,PDi ones are much more lighter on my wallet

Took a long time to dig these up, but finally found some Crye-compatible kneepads in grey.  Rather mediocre chinese copies and I don't have the trousers yet, but picked up 2 pairs ready for when I do.

Custom made trouser belt covered in loop, to interface with some new FirstSpear outer belts I've got coming that have the velcro hook on the inside.

 

22159665632_3aeb47521c_z.jpg

 

Also a pair of 11.1v LiPos for the ASG Scorpion Evo.  And OT, new rig (had my old PC for something like 6 and a half years, so I felt the time was good for an upgrade) came in about 2 weeks ago and I just hooked up the new monitor on monday.

 

21112248664_5fcff5f9ce_z.jpg

Won't list the specs right now as that'll fill up too much thread space.
