    Why can't I post?

    lol, right, thanks.
  2. So I took a year off, went to go post up some stuff in for sale, and I don't have permission Wasn't able to track down the new for sale rules, could only find the old thread, whats the story here?

    EdGi Barrels

    The people that ship your boxes are the lowest common denominator, I had a peice of /solid/ 1/4" TALVT6 titanium get bent in shipping due to it being shipped under a 200lb steel park bench and the guy grabbed it by the end and levering it out. I've had some 1/4" wall 6061 square stock arrive and wouldn't fit, I was scratching my head for a few days until I bothered to measure it and found out it wasn't square anymore, god only knows what caused /that/ It is no fault of EDGI or any other manufacturer, crap gets bent or broken in shipping occasionally, its how it is. small thin things usually get shipped on the floor of a truck along the sides where thousands and thousands of pounds of freight can shift and smush them. Regardless of if they are stainless steel or not (which you seem to think is some sort of god metal), it's /going to break/

    EdGi Barrels

    Ive received warped barrels before, it isn't that uncommon for long thin packages to get pulled or twisted out of a truck and slightly bent. and edgi barrels aren't solid X** stainless. Stainless is generally weaker and more prone to damage than standard steel.
  5. The exploded diagram that came with your rifle explains what exactly should be underneath that hop screw and in what order.
  6. several years ago tanaka had some legal issues and production was stopped, supply is just now drying up.
  7. yep it could have fallen out the bottom good news is its a simple fix, get an O ring who's diameter is about the same diameter as the hole, cut a 1/4"ish segment off of it, put it in the hole, done. you might have to make a few to get it just right.
  8. the wheel can't be in incorrectly but if you adjust it all the way down and still get no hopup, you didnt put the rubber spacer on the bottom of it
  9. now that I think about it I think there was a peg to keep it in line and then a second peg that was the spring loaded ball bearing, someone with a KJW will have to confirm, if you push on the peg it should go "down" , its not cast into the receiver.
  10. iirc there are spurs on the bottom of the hopup screw, on the gun there is a tiny spring and ball bearing that causes the "clicking" they probably shot out when you took it apart.
  11. trial and error though guns with pcs don't shoot quite as hard.
  12. and all of those wreck barrels as well.
  13. well thats responsible of them... At least tightbore sales are going to increase with the number of barrels that are going to be obliterated by them, lol.
  14. interesting that about .9 is the specific weight of a STEEL 6mm bb, curious to know what nonmetal they are made from...
  15. Backopsairsoft above have a pretty awesome field and props There's also CNY airsoft who have an indoor and outdoor facility in the rome area if you want to roadtrip And if you want to make the trek out to the buffalo area there is HCA who restarted under new management last year.

    Urban sniping

    I still wear my ghillie to hide outside, inside is irrelevent. whatever you do, stay away from goddamn windows, I haven't seen one "sniper" do it properly like I do. stay as far from the window as possible and shoot from the other side of the room, /through/ the window, preferably from behind a table with upturned chairs on it It cuts down on what you can see but there's no way in hell anyone is going to see /you/. unless the building only has one window, then its kind of obvious where you are shooting from ;)
  17. there's only so many plastics with the required density, usually the color is a product of the plastic, not making them like that on purpose. these seem like repackaged madbulls or more likely madbulls and these are just plastic 6mm bearings from some obscure manufacturer both found.... time will tell
  18. Wonko: 2 things 1. you'll notice whenever RightHook could be touted as the end all, mysterious people will come out of the woodwork to do so (nudge nudge wink wink) In their defense I did see a RH at an event, the stock is what you are paying for but it did have some somewhat intelligent modifications in the machined parts to keep everything in line. 2. that is actually the complete reverse of what I thought the internals were, lol. The asahi isn't actually in the same class as most classics that need replacement parts, BV rifles and the like, sure, if it got repaired by AS4L, you bet, but the gun has no moving parts, and the ones that do move you could have replacements turned out for next to nothing. I had a spring rifle piston, a far more complicated part than pictured above, turned out by a local machinist for like 50 bucks. a bit expensive, but not really any moreso than a really good upgrade part.
  19. IIRC, clay contracts when it dries, so it wouldnt work anyway if you are working on the cheap use electrical tape, wrap it sticky side out on your barrel until you have thickness then sticky side in once or twice, melt the edges and you have a rubbery spacer/plug that will do the job.
  20. But the faster moving one has to fight more, because it's going faster. Also if you are going into gas and spring differences like you do the next paragraph, gas guns not true, we've already been over these two types of guns firing completely differently. well we were talking about 200ft. I would /never/ fire at anyone at 300ft, unless there were 299ft of open plain between me and my target that I couldn't cross and I had to start shooting people /right now/. I might take shots at retreating enemies after I engaged them at that range, but wholesale engagement at that range just gives away the fact your prey is being hunted. As soon as they know they are being fired on from a certain vector and it takes a full 1-2s for your round to get there, you aren't hitting anybody, my quailty of opponent may be different from yours however. I'm confident in my ability to hide, engaging at 100-150ft and dropping 2-4 people before they have any idea what is going on and then being in position to pick off more if they retreat is what I do, either way I caused a big enough disruption that I am doing my job. I don't sit in one spot and try to pick people off at extreme range, I don't "defend" anything, I go hunt. If you were reading, Im not advocating that lighter bb's are better, I'm advocating not defaulting to the heaviest round you can get your hands on because they are 'better' , because they aren't. I've gotten the .29 / .3 range to perform at extreme ranges, it was just a matter of tuning the gun and getting a more stable shot. Don't disregard things because they don't work for /you/. Like I said, for /me/ I found the heavier rounds to be too slow to be usable, how I use them. Try everything, keep what works for you. Not trying things or pigeonholing into something that doesn't work is what makes bad snipers bad.
  21. In fuzzy math world, yes, in actual practice, no. It has alot less to do with momentum and more to do with more air resistance for a faster moving projectile.
  22. its basically the same as a tanaka, except with an electric solenoid pushing the valve IIRC: wonko: I still figured my system was the "best" -You have an absolute known volumn of compressed gas (the common pole's size doesn't change) -You have an absolute known pressure of that gas -You have a system mostly independent of friction, incorrect lubing, weakening spring, tiny burrs, ect. won't effect a solenoid for the most part, only battery strength. A /real/ improvement in modern rifles would be a well machined "no play" male and female slot system between all of the firing system parts to make sure everything is aligned perfectly and the hopup is straight up and down at all times.
  23. putting a gbb into a body would only cost what the gbb and body cost which really isn't /that/ much. shoot me info about this system of yours, I was just going to use a 3 way fast acting solenoid with the common pole being a set-volume container, a c02 powerlet or something. when its open to the power source it fills, and when firing it closes the power source and opens to the barrel, trick would be to finding a solenoid fast acting enough. Really haven't had the drive to do the custom rifle thing in a long while. I haven't seen an actual third party firing systems in a long time, they are all modified cheap guns (righthook) totally absurd (escort) or never released (magnum) would be interesting to see something different for once.
