  1. It appears the moderating staff are aware of this issue, judging by the thorough cleaning of various subforums. I'd like to say thanks to admin and all of the moderators for staving off the hordes of bots apparently intent on overwhelming this board. Like admin said in his announcement a few months back: no one might be home, but he's keeping the lights on. Thanks again.
  2. In my opinion, hopup is the most important part of any gun. Without it, your range is severely restricted. Do YOU personally require hopup for your handgun? That depends on what you'll be doing with it.
  3. I don't think green gas magazines are rated for the pressure put out by CO2. You could end up destroying your magazine, which would suck.
  4. The ideal weight (not "size") of bb for your gun is dependent on your hopup's performance. For sniper rifles, people generally use the heaviest weight their hopup can effectively lift. This can vary from 0.30g all the way up to 0.48g or more.
  5. Buying a gun "a la carte" is usually significantly more expensive than buying the whole thing, then adding upgrades later. In a lot of cases, you can't individually purchase every part you need. I see what you're getting at, but it isn't as practical as you might think.
  6. Sounds like a solid plan. I'd scoop up a set of MAG midcap magazines, a speedloader, and a chestrig with the money you save. Maybe consider getting a LiPO battery and charger as well, just to boost your trigger response. Should get you going in the right direction. Good thinking on the multipurpose rifle, too. Of the 10 rifles I own, only 2 are specific to one (and only one) kit.
  7. Welcome to the forum. It's a bit dead, but a few old-timers like myself are still lurking about. I'm glad to see you actually did a lot of research. That's a rare thing these days. My honest opinion is that you should buy whichever Cyma AK model strikes your fancy. I have owned two (a Cyma 74U and AKM), both of which were sturdy and excellent performers. If you REALLY want to drop another hundred for a little more external durability, I'd personally opt for LCT over E&L.
  8. Looks to be a HFC L85 springer. Review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs7NSZK7MkM
  9. I had a CA AK105, which had 24mm+ muzzle thread. I ended up getting one of these to convert it to 14mm- standard thread. https://www.evike.com/products/53909/
  10. This must be a thread revival record. Nearly 10 years since the last post.
  11. It's pretty wild that you got an original TM M4 for free. You'll soon learn that, despite the low stock muzzle velocity, the hopup is pure magic.
  12. I prefer the Prometheus soft (purple) bucking over the G&G green bucking. That said, they are both good choices.
  13. Those look like Tokyo Marui standard cap mags to me. Nothing new, but still the gold standard of AEG mag reliability in my opinion.
  14. After re-reading what I wrote, maybe a pistols/shotguns-only game would give me the nostalgia hit I'm after.
  15. I've been on a nostalgia kick this week. First, I rediscovered Arnie's and all the quality information therein. Now I'm back here after somehow successfully guessing my password. I joined this forum nearly 15 years ago. Since then, I finished high school, enlisted, went to Iraq, came back, went to college, got an engineering degree, and now am working full time. No wife and kids to compete for my time, so I find myself playing at Ballahack Airsoft (in Virginia) every weekend, just as I have for the past 10 years. It's funny. I'm not a very nostalgic person, but I sometimes pine for the simple days. Back before impressions dictated all my equipment purchases and owning a machine gun was a pipe dream. Back when the "ultimate in firepower" was a KWA Mac 11 with a spare mag. I wish forums would make a comeback. Facebook sucks for finding old, useful information.
