Mine seems to be working fine, but I've not actually programmed anything yet. The window does open and I can go through the options. It has an English language thing that you need to install. If it gives you more hassle let me know and I'll see if I can't write out some instructions from what I did.

Thanks mate :) I'll PM you if i get stuck.

 

Yeah, them Forcecore's are the same as Meister Arms, ie E&L gen 1 with a standard motor - 'kin lovely!

 

Got a text from one of my credit card companies basically wondering if i was dead, so I decided to put some swag touches on my modern Russian loadouts:

IMGP6318_600-350x400.jpgSSO/SPOSN Sitting Mat - €9.48

(The one I made as soon as I started airsofting, before the Russians started issuing them to their armed forces mind, which so many people have quietly sniggered at and rolled their eyes at me over, many assuming that i was desperate to protect me arse from BB's, has finally been washed once to often, so a pro job is now the way forward.)

 

j-WFoXnvEUQ99-350x400.jpgSHN AK-74 Rubber Bayonet - €28.43

(This should be stiff enough to fit into a real steel AK bayonet frog, which will be a nice addition to my Smersh rig, and a massive improvement over the HobbyLink Japan airfix-stylee model one I have on there ATM.)

 

H1280006-270x400.jpgSSO/SPOSN Molle Comms/GPS/Phone Pouch - €16.25

(This is almost identical to the Mil-Tec one I've been using for the last couple of years, but it has the ubiquitous SSO edge binding on the pouch rim and flap so it'll fit right in on my Smersh.)

 

2-350x400.jpg Splav Elbow Pads TAC in OD - €14.89

g20130528134205198568t3n5-350x400.jpg Splav Knee Pads DOT in OD - €18.96

-10% Discount for Bolsheviks Team Members

+€36.34 Shipping from grey-shop.ru

€114.99 exchanged by PayPal mind -> £85.20

Kingrin Locust steel mesh goggles (black) from Fire-Support for £15.50 (inc P&P).

 

These will be my back up pair of goggles, just in case I have a malfunction with my main ones or fogging is too much.  Not a fan of mesh per se because they still make my vision dark but they will work anywhere.

These will be my back up pair of goggles, just in case I have a malfunction with my main ones or fogging is too much.  Not a fan of mesh per se because they still make my vision dark but they will work anywhere.

Yeah, when I found those and added them to my guide to noobism on a tight budget I was tempted to get some myself*, because that type of interwoven wire mesh is much better for seeing through than the perforated sheet most companies call mesh in their goggles. What stopped me is fire-supports' shipping charges  :angry: IIRC their basic charge is £7.99, right? So I'm waiting until I want something else from them to order at the same time - I did vaguely consider buying an ASG AW.308 because they have them on offer for £135 but then sense filtered through the haze I'm pleased to call my consciousness - I mean £135 base gun and then fuck knows what in upgrades to make it a competitive BASR... all to save £4 overcharge on shipping... hmmmmm! Might get some Kanzen bearings, but again I dunno: I forget their name now (it's something like Roullements Monde) but IIRpricesC the French company I usually buy Kanzen bearings from are quite a bit cheaper than f-s even including shipping from France... although a quick look and i can't actually find a link to the company i'm on about so my days of dealing with them may be at an end anyway  :(

 

*Because even though I have some ACM ski mask type goggles with the same mesh, there is a slight warp to the plastic frame, and i like the look of the angular accents on these Kingrin Locusts.

 

Aha! It's roulement-passion and their fleabay.fr shop is called univers du roulement so i just wasn't thinking big enough :lol: but I did remeber the price deets correctly €38.95 posted for Ceramic's as opposed to £34+shipping

 

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooops! So I thought i'd just check fire-support's shipping price, because while i have no problem bad mouthing people who deserve it, i do like to know for as sure as possible that people DO actually deserve it and guess what? £3.50 for Royal Mail Signed For, so actually 40p cheaper than RM advertise on their webby - go Frank! Customer service beyond the call of duty, that is!

 

So I got 1 in OD - £15.50 posted

^^ Fire-Support charged £3.50 shipping which is no worse than many eBay sellers, and it is good to get it quickly from a UK retailer instead of waiting for import from china.

Ah, i didn't see this before i edited my above post. But i got there in the end anyway and along the way did that most uncharacteristic of online behaviours - freely admitted that i was wrong :lol:

Some more bits for my svd, slowly getting there..

 

Went to Airsoftworld to get some ABS svd furniture, but was put off by the price (£40 not including the overpriced postage fees.) So, I went over to AirsoftPro.cz and bought:

 

ABS furniture, current furniture is tatty. 27 euros

New trigger pin, old one keeps falling out. 4 euros

Sorbo pad. 3 euros

 

After postage and VAT, it came to a total of £35 posted, not bad eh? Should be somewhat skirmishable at this point!

They take paypal, I pay via credit card as the fee costs less.

Are you sure it cost you less? Almost all banks in the UK charge commission on converting your currency (even to Euros) and PayPal is actually far cheaper despite their less favourable exchange rate. I painstakingly tried all three checkout options and found PayPal overall was cheapest.

 

Used to happen to me a lot last year with two separate banks because I was too dumb to switch AliExpress and DHGate over to GBP so it was converting to Dollars or Euros all the time.

 

A lot of the time your exchange rate and commission charge won't even show on your statement until a few days after the payment too :S

Definitely cheaper. It was like 16 euros for paypal and 14 euros for card payment. :)
