Quick question to the dboys/vfc ak owners. My otherwise awesome dboys aksu has developed something of a wobbly and loose scope bracket. now considering i recently dropped 60 on an acog and the clip on scope mount is fine, would suck to have the bracket on the body itself be loose, it only wobbles by a millimetre, but thats enough.

would supergluing the bracket to the body stop me taking the gun down should the need for gb maintenance arise or does it not matter?

I just ordered a D-Boys RK-12 and it has the black furniture that you're looking for but it also has a folding stock. A review says it shoots around 375-380 which is a good range for most fields. But the gun definitely isn't a standard ak47.
( http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_in...roducts_id=4807 )

Hey guys are we talking DBOYs RK12s?



Incidentally regarding mags, I have CYMA midcaps and they only fit in well once you file down the mag release nub on the back of each mag and only feed well after filing down the BB-release nub to match the stock DBOYs hicap that comes with the gun. Otherwise, this gun is really awesome.

I no longer have the loudener on the end of the barrel but having it on does make a noticable crack sound as you fire. Just a silencer, RAS kit, flashlight, foregrip and laser to go now.

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_in...roducts_id=5630

It seems like a lot of the guns I'm finding are plastic with metal gearboxes... Should I really be that concerned with staying away from plastic guns, since they just limit my choices? How sturdy are higher end plastic rifles?

I've nothing against Plastic bodied guns with metal gearboxes (plastic gearboxes are worthless) the bodies themselves are unlikely to break but gun quality as a whole really depends on the brand. DBOYs are a chinese clone company and their M4s are getting particularly long in the tooth now, but high end companies like G&G and ICS have released Plastic-bodied versions of their higher end Metal-bodied M4s for like a fraction of the price, same internals and everything.

I always found the orange-tip law quite funny. Best way to walk around with a real gun in public? Spray the flash hider orange.

Same with the UK and two-tones, your gun could actually be a completely real bullet-slinging machine but look like a toy if you paint it bright blue.

Any of you guys own a G&G F2000?

I have a sudden and irrational urge to go for a space-age bullpup, preferably one that takes m4 midcaps. Only I heard the G&G doesn't take midcaps, this is a dealbreaker for me.

Or G&G fixed that issue and now it does. Or something.



If they haven't fixed that issue and since I am a recent total convert to midcaps, going back to hicaps only would SUCK, what is the general opinion on CA AUGs? I've used a JG AUGA3, thought the trigger was way too heavy, the body was poo poo quality and all sorts of stuff rattled on it to the point where I was worried stuff would straight up fall off, so how does the CA stack up in comparison?

On top of this, I've been reading reviews that have been all over the place. Amateur internet reviewers of high end guns are usually massively impressed, reviewers of the CA AUG proline are listing all sorts of problems.

Aliginge, try mentioning that you want a G2010 and see how long, in minutes, it takes for Froggy to affirm that he's always wanted one, has been looking at getting one for a while, and in fact is about to buy a super upgraded version from one of his 'team'.
It took about an hour with the EBR.
Oh and now he wants an MP9. And a revolver. And probably to date my girlfriend too.

Actually you'll probably find that he's always dated her, has been dating her for a while, and in fact is about to date a super upgraded version of her provided by one of his 'team'.

I can't explain my sudden urge to get one. I think I just held my AKSU one day and went, well this is great and all, but wouldn't it be awesome if it were a bullpup? I swung the stock to the side, put the reciever to my shoulder, held the foregrip like a pistol grip and did a prompt sweep of my house for random tangos and it made me sad that so few bullpups exist. I also considered P90s for the practicality aspect to be honest, but I wanted an AR. So that led to either a FAMAS, AUG or F2000 (gently caress sa80s). FAMASs are either poo poo or old TMs, AUGs are either poo poo JGs (horrible based on the AUGA3 I used at NTAC) or not that great CAs, TMs maybe but even then the F2000's looks just grew on me so fast these past few days.

That and people keep saying it is literally the most accurate AEG going, hyperbole yeah, but that's not bad news at all. I know you disapprove of youtube reviewers, but Jarek from RedDragonAirsoft http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZb5gscU6Cw tested it recently and he's tested like everything, from Dboys to Real Sword and if he is comparing it to his real FS2000 and is still impressed then woah.

047 is based on the Tokyo Marui internal design and has a pot metal body, 040 is based on the VFC, which is newer and probably better as well as having a steel-stamped body.

For reference, the 040, 048 and 050 series are all VFC clones. the rest are TM. Incidentally, all DBOYs AKs are Steel-bodied VFC clones.

ICS M4A1 - 148. Great manufacturer, it's very cheap due to the (good quality) ABS body rather than being full metal, way better internals than similarly-priced competitors from crappier chinese clone companies - ICS are Taiwanese and are awesome, features all the same internals as the ICS guns double that price, easier to take down than any other airsoft M4 due to the unique split gearbox design, winner all round I feel.

I've got a G&G G2010 Hunter (with the scope). It's pretty great.

Incidentally, the Hunter is available around these parts for not very much more than the regular tactical version. Can I bother you to:

A) If possible get a photo looking through the scope at something? I really like putting scopes on to my guns and it'd be awesome if the scope that comes with the Hunter is actually decent.

B) Tell me if there is an RIS rail underneath the scope so I could mount other optics like my ACOG or red dot to if I feel the need? I heard there might be a scope rail and it might be lower-set than the Tactical or something and that you may get a tactical railed upper with the Hunter anyway. Got my wires crossed with this.

Just come back from my first full day of airsoft for a whole year, had fun although Every Single One of my mags refused to feed. CYMA AKSU Midcaps and a Dboys ak47 waffle hicap.

I'd load both the mids and the hicap I have, without putting them in the gun, I'd pull the bb release tab, watch as a single BB rolls out while the spring is eternally stuck and refuses to push the BBs out. I'd suspect this was the brand of midcaps I have if it didn't happen on my Dboys hicap as well.

So what the utter gently caress is going on with my mags when they were working perfectly two weeks ago? So spell it out to me, I know I'm lubing my mags either wrongly or not often enough, so what should I be doing and how often to make these loving things reliable? I'm sick of mags not feeding being such an issue with me.

Checked my lube, this is probably the issue. It's a Silicone spray lubricant which was hard enough to find in the shops around here, but checking it it does contain Butyl Alcohol and Isopariffinic Solvent, which I assume are the distillates and solvents in question.

That leads me to my next question, can you link me to a particular brand of spray i can go for? I'll look some up on ebay if I can get a decent brand or see if there are some UK sites selling it.

Uuugh gently caress woodland forever.
Pretty much. I'm sick of my airsoft consisting of mud and poo poo and rain and hills and nettles and going prone in gorse bush and taking forever to move anywhere due to the terrain, having all my BBs be swatted by branches but have no cover when they return fire except to lay down in branches and risk a punctured lung. I wanna play some games where it's a possible to stand up while taking cover and moving isn't such a goddamn slog. I think what annopys me the most is going out to the loving sticks where in the safe areas, your only comforts from the rain and wind are a former stable or if you're lucky, a horrid-smelling portajohn.


It is at this point I mention to the rest of the goons here that I've never done any type of airsoft other than woodland. I crave FIBUA or CQB.

OK guys I'm buying my fourth gun since the beginning of this thread and I need you guys to help me decide which one. I'm considering one of a bunch of M4s. Sadly CAs are out of my price range, 250 on the gun, another hundred or so on gear, mags, battery, charger, etc.

G&P M4
G&G GR16
KWA M4

I'm generally after a RAS'd up doll-gun so my initial inclination is to go for the G&G which is pretty much what I'm after externals-wise aside from the barrel, I'd kind of prefer a shorter one tbh. Then again the G&Ps are supposedly legendary and the KWA is a goddamn KWA and everybody loves those guys right now (though I've personally no experience with them).

Bearing in mind I'm a hopeless newbie when it comes to internals, what do you reckon I should go for, goons?

Are Classic Army SCAR-Ls basically the same as CA's AR15 range? Are they as supposedly awesome out of the box?

Main reason I ask is that I found one going for 100 cheaper than anywhere else and it sits price-wise right alongside that G&P M4 QRF I had my eye on. I am conflicted.

Since a SCAR is a tacticool barbie gun like the m4 without being one, I have to say I'm tempted.
