What made you go for the Orgas over the RATech inner and Outer Barrel setup?

 

Because the only place a Ratech inner should be installed is the bin. Literally the biggest cause of jam's in "upgraded" WE GBBR's. 

 

The Ratech carrier was only bought until the guy making the 3D printed ones gets his act together and starts letting people buy them easily >.<

Well, my wallet is crying bloody murder... Dropped over 3 grand in the last week... On quasi-Airsoft stuff...

Building a 3D modeling computer (I guess I can make better Airsoft videos with it 😉)

Ended up being more like $1700 with shipping (pic below)

Then I splooged and got myself a 3DR SOLO quadrotor.

A guy I know used a drone to film a game I was at here in the states, so I needed to be able to do the same 😊

The voucher was going to run out on Monday, so something had to be done - I was hoping to spend the whole €50 on mags, despite their poor rep, because at least i can use the guts of them to fill some real steel (actually bakelite) mags I bought a while ago, but despite having only just restocked, they only had these 3 left. Hey ho, Phatima, my ICS AKS 74U, has got something dire wrong with her and although she was at one time my fav gun, my patience is very nearly expended, hence this new toy. Plus it was the cheapest Meister Arms gun they do...

Let me get lynched again. I use the Safariland single point. I'll link it below. The quick detach is excellent.

Sorry bud, messed up the link as I posted it from my tablet. Here's a real link :)

Please note, this will work on all AR buffer tubes, or anything with a sling mount

You can't guarantee that.  RS buffer tubes are consistent in their diameter for the mounting of the base plate, airsoft buffer tubes vary in size wildly between manufacturers.

I'd be extraordinarily surprised if that fitted correctly on even 25% of airsoft buffer tubes.

Well seeing as Spaz has some connection with the Rogers company he can test it.
For all anybody knows they built enough tolerance into it for that. They do seem to aim towards the airsoft community as well as RS.

Fair enough, let me rephrase :). RHC has tested it on (afaik) all AR tubes. I have tested it on WE, G&G, TM, KWA, VFC, and maybe a few more; it fits all them. It also comes with a shim to convert it to fit thinner tubes (real steel called civi tubes). Plus, you can just attach it to any sling mount; I have this sling on my TM MP7, S&T TAR, ARES Stoner, and my E&L AK, none of which have buffer tubes.

How does it adapt to the variance?  All my airsoft ARs vary significantly in the sizing of their buffer tubes; a stock that's tight on a TM will wobble like crazy on an Avalon/VFC.

 

I'm also unsure why you'd need a shim for commercial spec buffer tubes?  Mil spec tubes are the thinner ones.

And is there a site selling them that ships outside the US?  Or do you have to contact HolsterOps directly?  Attempting to go through their checkout, they don't allow any country but US to be selected for the address.

Some nylon shoelace for like 50c. Made some mag pulls because I found myself throwing my gloves off to reload too often. 

 

Used glue because drilling volatile plastic without a bench drill sounds like an awful idea to me.
