No kidding?! I'm a sound designer/audio engineer :D

No kidding. What do you think of Binatone stuff? I had a headphone amp once... had being the operative word.
________________________________

Yeah I know what you mean, Ed. I tend to be a fairly unsociable cnut and, tbh, there are good reasons for that; but the way they run Skirmish makes most of those reasons irrelevant. It's pretty simple I suppose: we're all there to have a laugh and any reasons we might otherwise fasten upon to judge, dislike, or be suspicious of each other don't seem to get much if any of an airing.

I've even found myself making a jokey reply to a xenophobic comment, the staggering ignorance of which would ordinarily have been my cue to make that person admit they were a fool, or demonstrate it in no uncertain terms, one way or another. Not that I'm suggesting anyone should go along with that kind of thing, but honey catches more flies than vinegar etc. For that reason I'm not going to name'n'shame either, but it wasn't anybody you'd be disappointed in...

I wouldn't say Pocket is a dick. He's a very different person to me and he's fcuking enthusiastic, which is either cool or really annoying depending on how I'm feeling. I can't get on the military tip like a lot of airsofters do and I spose Pocket is on it more than most. I mean, yeah i dress in British Army DPM and have a MK6 helmet, L1A1, bla bla, but it's a game/sport/hobby - I almost joined up when I was too young to know better but nowadays I'd be more likely to volunteer to airsoft bollock naked than recommend being a soldier as a sensible career choice :lol:

Waiting for some stainless steel tri-glide buckles to replace the plastic ones on my 3 point sling. A plastic loop gave up the ghost @Brit Tac so I thought I might as well do 'em all at once. I'll have to use Krylon on them at some point. Buggered if I could find any made from black laquered steel, or even just plain mild steel, but at least SS won't rust...

I could've just replaced the thing I spose, but there's nothing wrong with the laquered steel clips, the webbing, or the side release buckle, so, since it cost £4.50 inc P&P (after I complained and accepted 1/2 back rather than getting a full refund and sending it back or a replacement) and another £7.25 for the buckles (actually I ordered 6 so I can do another sling also, for £14.50 inc P&P) that's still plenty cheaper than a good brand, even if a can of Krylon was only enough for these buckles.

From Circuit Airsoft Closing Down Sale

Umarex H&K G36V Electric Blowback AEG (Black)
Posted Image
£120 inc VAT - what, are you 'kin serious?

.........................
.................
..............
...........
........

No, but at least one jammy fcuker got exactly that sweet deal! Barstid!

What really makes me nauseous is that I did know about Circuit closing down yesterday, from the current discussion about mesh goggles, but I didn't bother to look until an hour or so ago. The only consolation I can take from this sad event is that it wasn't the KV version, which is the one I actively want; but still, since I'm planning to mess with it quite a bit anyway, this would have been just as good a starting point as a stock KV, just not what I would want in the interim :'( About all else I can think of is that there seems to be a question of reliability hanging over them, which is not what you need when buying from a company closing down.

What I did get was:-

HEROSHARK DAGGER NOSE
Posted Image
Cost me £14.40 (£23 from heroshark.co.uk) - Somewhat bizarrely, IMO, these were the cheapest and the most discounted (£6.80 vs £4.40 or £4.20). I'd have chosen them as the best of the four available choices, because they are the only ones without a pillar in the centre or two separate 'lenses' - the problem with either of those being that when you glance to one side, the vision of the opposite side eye is compromised by the frame, which thus must interfere with depth perception.

Hey ho, I spose not many people think about things like that, but fresh from a discussion about the relative merits of various types of eye protection and types of mesh, I can't help it. The whole reason I decided to give them a try, apart from the fact that I feel that there is a good chance I will not get on with them so it's only worth a punt since they're going cheap, is that the gaps which are wider than other types of sheet mesh offer less restricted vision... I mean, duh! Such wide holes increase the slight risk of being hit in the eye by a fragment of shattered BB, but, for much better vision, that's a risk worth taking I reckon. Why then, given the option, and accepting that slight increased risk for better vision, would I choose anything other than the most open field of view? Somehow I feel it probably has to do with the way a game character or three look... you know, in the same way that some people would rather wear a desert UBACS in a British woodland than CS95 DPM lol!


MAG 140 Round AK74 Magazine Long (Bakelite) x 2


Posted Image

Cost me £5.40 each - TBH I hate this colour, even though I have six the same that hold about half as many BB's, but they didn't have any in black - I spose that's what Krylon is for lol!

They have got some Lonex AK47 Flash mags, but I've heard bad things about them, compared to the STANAG type, so I don't feel that £28.80 is cheap enough to take a punt.


G&P Military Distress Marker BB Loader


Posted Image

For £6 I thought fcuk it, why not? It does seem to look just like the real thing lol!


G&P 8.4v 2200mAh AK Type Battery


Posted Image

£13.20 - a 2200mAh battery for less than the price of a 1400 - woohoo! I expect that it'll last all day, even if I end up laying down a lot of covering fire. This photo, the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed, isn't an 8.4V - it has 8 cells so it's a 9.6V - but I'm sure dodgy pics wasn't what caused Circuit to fold. However...

P&P: Standard Parcels Service

£15.86 - yeah, that's not a typo, it's a piss take :rolleyes: and that kind of thing can't have been good for business. Still, for a total of £60.26 for this lot delivered, I feel like I've done pretty well for my wonga...

As in the communications stuff? Never used them. I'm less of the internal hardware audio engineer and more of the digital kind. Recording, mixing, mastering, audio restoration and such. I dabble in acoustics now and again too :)

Anyways on topic my SERPA 1911 holster is here! Only problem is the dropleg platform is not =/ I need to buy a decent holo scope next.

Well after working this morning and leaving my son at home, I thought it would be nice to take him to the local surplus shop. He bought a long sleeve thermal top and a thick belt. I bought a Swiss Arms rifle case, US tricolour desert shirt, trousers and coat. After a bit of battering and discount it came to £90. Considering the coat was reduced from £50 to £35 and the Swiss Arms case was £25, I think we did ok!

My most recent purchase was the JG Ingram Mac-10 from Airsoftworld. Hoping I don't miss the delivery tomorrow! Looking forward to trying this weapon out. Anyone had experience with them?

I'm still fairly new to Airsoft so I'm still picking up little bits and pieces such as dump pouch, waterproofs for the wetter days and a half-face mesh mask to protect my beautiful face from BB's. More or less sorted now in general. Loving my all-black based kit :)

Bought a second MTP PCS smock as the first one was a tad to small. Also got a pair of un-issued DDPM combats and some tan knee pads.

As for the Binatone radios. These have now been sold on as you cant get a decent headset and PTT that is a direct fit. I bought an adapter and that would not work either. So i have replaced them with a pair of Motorola ones. Sold on ebay for £15 more than i paid!

I managed to get just 1 XTR446 from somebody in Portugal off fleabay... £9 + £6 P&P!!! TBF there are no legends left on the buttons, but it's not that complicated to remember what I need to.

Sold on ebay for £15 more than i paid!

A TM MP5 High cycle, with the drum mag, three high cap straight mags, four 8.4V Ni MH batteries, a charger that will do for my other batteries including the LiPO, a tight bore (6.04) barrel fitted and a load of other bits and pieces or it, all for £260!

Yesterday I ordered a low powered bolt assembly for my MP9 from the States.

Just wish I could find some reasonably priced MAC11 and MP9 GBB KWA mags now. That would make me happy!

58 Pattern Water Bottle & Mug (plastic) £3.99 + £3.49 P&P - I only wanted the bottle, but for that price who cares?

58 Pattern Mug (enamelled metal) £8 + £2.75 P&P - arguing with the seller now b/c it's in rough condition...

SA80 Cleaning Kit £6.50 + £2.75 P&P - the new type zip up pouch, atomiser oil bottle & stiff pull through (not a full kit by any means lol).
I got this for a few reasons: I don't like the idea of using pressurised cans if there's a good alternative, plus the atomiser is much smaller than a can of Abbey; the stiff pull through should work just as well as the plastic rods that come with AEG's and it coils up in the pouch, which is much easier to carry around than a rod long enough for an AK, let alone for my L1A1; I can put a few other bits and bobs in the pouch and that'll be a handy, little AEG maintenance kit.

British army General Service Olive Green Shirt £4.95 + £3.75 P&P - I'm slowly heading towards a cold war loadout.

Viper Black Kneepads £5.11 + £2.99 P&P - I'm also building a special forces style all black loadout.

Actually, I really should make a gear wanted thread in the classifieds...

Some M4 thread size Nuts & Bolts £0.99 & £1.79 inc P&P - for general repairs.
They're stainless steel wich isn't ideal, but, through experimentation, I think I've found a way of making them black in a way that will last.

Snap On Allen Key Set 8mm - 2mm £7.11 + £3.25 P&P - how fcuking annoyed was I getting with cheap Allen Keys rounding off when I tried to tighten a hex-bolt up properly?

1m Black 25mm Flat Elastic £1.19 inc P&P - I need to make loops to hold a torch pressure pad onto various AEG's.

2 x Large Flameless Ration Heaters £3.90 + £1.00 P&P - for the night game @Skirmish 15/12/12
These are way better than the standard size and leaps and bounds better than the US MRE type.

All from fleabay. Fweabay is my fwiend :wub:

Oh yeah, and from cadetfactory.co.uk Viper Black UBACS shirt £34 inc P&P - hopefully I'll have it before the 15th, but if not, I want it for my spec ops loadout anyway.

It's old, it's battered and it's cost me about a tenner.

Now what should I turn it into is the big question...
