Just as an FYI, the current production mags from PTS are nothing to do with Magpul designs as things currently stand.  Magpul actually pulled their license as far as any replicas of mags/accessories go a couple of years back now.

 

Luckily though PTS are still using the same plastic (tougher than some RS stuff) and similar internals to their old E/PMAG line, so as far as midcaps go I've personally yet to find anything that gets close quality wise.

Yeh, I grabbed a couple of the new EPMs as backups for the M249 and they feed really well. The base plates are what kind of give them away as not being EMAG, so I switched those out for some of the old PTS ones and now they look pretty close to the real thing again (not that I really minded the look, but those rubberised base plate thingies were way too bulky).

 

Also having that coloured follower that shows you when you're 50% and 100% full is great.

 

It's a shame Magpul pulled their licensing, but given how people were buying 'fake' airsoft stuff and sticking it on real steel then complaining when it wasn't up to scratch or appeared slightly different you can see why they would. Their real steel accessories are obviously where the vast majority of their income was coming from. Seen quite a few smaller real steel companies teaming up with PTS though, and some interesting designs for flash hiders and charging handles are knocking about these days.

Whilst I completely understand why they did it I just wish someone would produce mags remotely on par with the SOPMOD PMAGs for the TM recoils. Unless there's some I don't know about, being worried about losing mags you can't replace sucks.

I'm fairly sure someone somewhere is still making the SOPMOD magazines... MLEmart have had a few loads in stock over the last few months 


If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.

I couldn't figure out if those are just a load that have been kicking about in a warehouse somewhere, seen them appear on their ebay store a couple of times when I was looking for a mate. Either way he bought a few and they look identical to the genuine ones I bought a couple of years back.

they're definitely the real deal, I bought a few a couple of months back and they're identical in every way to the ones I already had.

Hopefully back end of Feb or March.

Asbo1991, maybe look into some knee pads, I decided to buy some now with the amount of times I've taken a knee on a rock, or pointy stick, or fallen over or worse a BB.

 

 

50. Cal ammunition box and some case foam to make up a grenade/ammo box.

 

Would look a little nicer than the cardboard box barely holding together full of BB bottles and bangs rolling around in the boot of the car.

(Laylax) Prometheus EG 6.03mm inner (407mm), purple soft nub and black dragon suppressor (190mm)

 

Current inner barrel is 261mm so you can guess what I'm doing with that extra length and the suppressor...

 

 

With the barrel I bought been labeled with "Laylax" in brackets before Prometheus, does this tell me that it's an off brand of Prometheus or... help please.

I've got a pair of Blackhawk V2's, they're alright at saving my knees and generally staying in the right place. Anything that will really give you some extra padding around there will help.
