  1. That's what I figured. I'll probably just wind up dropping coin on a WOC in the next month or so finally. Oh well...
  2. I've noticed that a few Asian retailers like WGC, UnCompany and ehobbyasia started carrying an Umarex MP5 GBB. I've been looking at getting an MP5 GBB for a while, but the only ones available were the Escort ones which were rare, difficult to skirmish, and expensive. Does anyone have any info about them? I tried looking up official information on the OEM website but I can't find much. How long have they been on the market? Does anyone on here own one and can comment on it's performance? Or it's availability or compatibility with upgrade parts? I have a hard time spending $400 on a gun with hardly any information available. Lastly, will any stateside retailers be selling this anytime soon? Thanks for the feedback if anyone knows anything.
  3. scoutthedoggie has some of the best footage I've ever seen. http://www.youtube.com/user/scoutthedoggie I've been watching his vids for years.
  4. Don't get pistols. They're of far more limited use than their worth outdoors. I would go with something like Drift King said. JG M16/M4 would be great. I would say M16 over M4 because full stock can hold larger batteries, better bang for buck in my opinion. Armalite is better because there are more parts available, and JG are TM clones, which are the most common parts out there. Sharing mags is easy, and again, mags are common. Plus, if your members want to, they can easily modify the rifles to their particular liking. Post more information so we can better recommend things for you.
  5. http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/pistols-gbb-smg...stol-black.html Never rule out Asia! They also have the Mk3 and Mk4 too at this time.
  6. +1. I'd say a TM or a KSC/KWA is the best pistol I've ever used or owned. I've never had a WA now that I think about it... Might need to get on that.
  7. If I'm not mistaken its a NBB (Non-BlowBack), so the bolt doesn't cycle externally with each shot, thus making it quite different from other GBBR's (Gas-BlowBack Rifle) It won't really prepare you for getting a higher end GBBR since it lacks many common features on a G&P, WA, WE, GHK, etc, simply making you less familiar with their systems. gorbasho on the forums here is known to build and sell G&P Challenge Kits at the same cost you would buy one from Evike. Cool thing about Challenge Kits, which aren't usually seen as a good thing, is the internal build quality isn't that high compared to a normal WOC, so it'll force you to learn how to troubleshoot, replace, and upgrade parts. While the price may be tempting, it probably won't be what you want or are expecting. I'm considering getting a G&P CK to learn and tinker with in my free time.
  8. Nobody mentioned HFC134a, more commonly known as "duster gas." Depending on the weight of the components in the gun being moved, you can use canned air typically used to clean computers as propellant. I've used it in the past and use it in guns with more delicate parts (a-la most guns made in Japan) without any significant issue. Since I work for a major computer retailer I can usually get about 10 bottles or so for a little over $3, making it a good value. The stuff isn't even that expensive anyway, I can't remember what the regular retail is for it off the top of my head. I'm not sure how heavy the bolt for the LM4 is, but I have a hard time believing it would work since I wasn't ever able to effectively use it in any KSC/KWA gun I owned since they traditionally have heavy internals and stiff recoil springs. Also, my local CQB arena doesn't allow propane either for the fact that if an inspector comes to visit the premises and smell propane, they can shut down the whole facility, possibly even permanently due to explosive or health hazards, regardless if it was being used in guns or not. Propane is used so irresponsibly in airsoft in my opinion, so I have no problems at all for paying a little bit more for a bottle of GG.
  9. My local shop imports Gen4 WE G17's. My buddy just bought one about a month ago or so. His distributor sends him a shipment of the lower half of the gun, and then a shipment of the upper half and he just puts the pieces together. I would definitely look at a KSC just for the realism factor, TM isn't an exact 1:1 model. The WE is okay, my friend has had his die on him more than a few times due to some fluke workmanship issues, nothing major though. While I've never owned the full frame models, I've had a KWA/KSC G23F and was impressed with it until I sold it. For what it's worth, the model I owned wasn't System7/NS2, it was several years back.
  10. Pictures of the internals would help. Also seeing the magazine near the knocker.
  11. Thanks! My CQB place is semi auto only, but having almost 50 rounds per magazine is pretty sweet. I can usually get two full mags off before I have to refill gas on semi auto. On full auto, it can deplete a magazine in about 2-3 seconds. It consumes way more gas on full auto. A disciplined trigger finger can use it effectively on full auto though. You can reach targets out about 100ft in decent conditions. My local CQB place has a generous FPS limit of 315 on .25g, but most places might not tolerate the power. It's really reliable and cheap for a KWA sub machine gun. I got mine used with 2 mags for $105. It has yet to let me down.
  12. My buddy had a similar problem. He was using WD40 to lube his gun, we lubed it with silicon and it worked after that. Make sure you dilute your propane with silicon. you'll ruin your magazines and your gun otherwise.
  13. Here's a couple quick shots of my CQB gun. Quick rundown: KWA M11A1 NS2 Magazines x4 Hello Kitty sticker bomb is for lulz. Gets lots of attention from other people. Definitely a great gun. I'll update this a little later if I have time to add better photos.
  14. Define "cheap" and "decent." My immediate thought goes right to the Y&P MK23 click here, I make bad people go away!
  15. If you have an NS2 model, I'm not sure the G&P kit is even an option considering the internals are different between the older version and the NS2. IIRC the G&P was available and designed for the older style of gas system.
  16. +1. A friend of mine had a 26F and eventually had major issues with it. Full auto is cool, but ultimately semi auto serves a better purpose and you won't blow through magazines as fast. Running it as a secondary, I'm assuming you'll only have 2 + 1 magazines to use, which will deplete VERY fast on full auto. M11 is a decent choice, but again, stick to full auto and that mag will literally be dry in 2 seconds. I use an M11 as a primary, but one thing that annoys me is the magazines make laying down very annoying. Also every M11 holster I've had is a pain in the . Running a sling will probably get in your way, so if anything I'd carry it on a detachable buckle.
  17. I only run 4 or 5 magazines per gun. Most GBBR magazines can hold ~50 shots, that gives me 200-250 shots usually. If going for realism, you most likely won't be using full auto, so a disciplined trigger can run on about that number of magazines. Depending on your scenario, I usually reload my magazines at the staging area a few times per match. Most outdoor fields use respawn systems, so when you're shot out you can have some time to reload at the spawn point. Or, you can lug around some loose bb's and a can of gas and reload on the fly when you get the opportunity to. 12 magazines is a lot to lug around a whole game. As someone mentioned, used is a good way to go for GBBR guns and equipment since it's usually cheaper and maintained properly. I've bought all my GBB guns used and had little to no issue. As far as manufacturers, G&P and WA have lots of upgrade parts and the externals on the G&P especially are phenomenal. WE is a more budget friendly rifle but their parts are known to fail more quickly and they use a different gas system than G&P or WA. I've also heard some good things about KJW rifles, but for realism G&P has the most realistic functions native to other RS AR variants. You can get used G&P rifles from anywhere between ~$250+, most of which retail at $400+. Hope this helps! :)
  18. Since someone mentioned the Y&P MK23, I've had the Tokyo Marui MK23 which the Y&P is a clone of. It's NBB and plastic, but very durable ABS plastic. The gun comes with it's own carrying case, 2 magazines, and a suppressor that actually muffles the sound. Most impressive was the legendary TM hop up. It has excellent range, I could hit man sized target out to about 75ft IIRC. I really regret selling that gun now that I think about it.. Only qualms I had was it's a humongous pistol. I have pretty decent sized hands and it still felt a little strange in my palms. Also, it has a much harder trigger pull since it's double action with no cocking mechanism. What I mean by that is since the slide doesn't rack back after every shot, the hammer doesn't get pulled back for the next shot unless you pull it back with your thumb. Kind of a minor issue, but I'm really used to the softer pull I've become accustomed to with GBB's. Basically anything KWA will be reliable, both my M9 and my M11 have worked with no problems to speak of. You can get a used KWA Glock, semi auto or full auto variant used for a pretty good price if you browse the BST forum. EDIT: Reason I recommend the Glocks is because they're easy to fix and maintain (field strip, etc.) and there are tons of parts available if you need to replace anything or get the taste for upgrades later down the pike.
  19. One of my mates at the local CQB place, Tango Down Airsoft Arena in Lancaster PA. The past few weeks we've been going up in the evenings after work helping test game types and the layout of the course since they don't officially open until this weekend. They've been doing a limited opening to the public since they were approved to start playing about 2 weeks ago, but their marketing material all says they aren't open till this weekend officially, so I guess you could call it a soft opening. We used to have a team together a few years ago, but most went to college, got married, lost interest, etc. so now we only go in small groups. Plus the great thing about CQB is you can wear just about anything you want without having to worry about looking "tacticool", hence the purple beanie. Hopefully we'll get some good shots in the coming weeks! If anyone lives in the Delmarva or SEPA area I highly recommend checking this place out!
  20. So does Michael Bay run this place or something? Those explosions are awesome.
  21. Most obvious place to start investigating is air seal. If it doesn't make a proper seal it'll just eat gas.
  22. UPDATE: I am no longer looking for magazines aside from G&P WOC PMAGs! I'm still looking for battle belts + pouches for STANAG, and M11 magazines! Also, I've almost finished a deal on a GBBR, but that hasn't been finalized yet! To save your time and mine, if you're expecting to get more than $300 for you GBBR, I'm not interested!
  23. if you're looking for a quality M79, I owned a Craft Apple Works (CAW) M79 a few years back and the quality was superb. If I remember correctly, you can get them for around what you paid for the Matrix M79. I'm not sure if they still produce replicas or not, but they also manufactured an MGL at one point which was around the price of $350 IIRC.
