    That mag retainer looks great Puding good find! I'm sick of searching for lost mags or having to load my mag into the pistol at the last minute when I really need it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,293 ✭✭✭ Killinator


    Have CA lost out on their license with H&K?, just noticed no trades on the UMP or 416


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,261 Puding


    classic army only ever had the trade mark rights for B&T never for H&K , Uramax (or what ever there called) own the H&K trade marks and intellectual property


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,293 ✭✭✭ Killinator


    Oh right, could have sworn they used the H&K logo, but looking through my CA catologue I dont see any guns with those trades

    That Mag guard is the bizz, there is about 5 mags missing in the woods and 1 Glock18 with mag still in somewhere in the 8 acers of woods here in Cork.

    Good find.

    ACM M60

    Original Source : http://www.airsoft-news.eu/news.php
    Rumour of ACM M60 is one of the most persistent one around (and there are many). There might be some substance to this one: Chinese company CWI (?) is preparing a Full metal Replica of TAIWAN INNOKATSU M60. This one could be real deal as some Chinese stores are already taking preorders, so stay tuned for confirmation from reputable Hong Kong stores. News courtesy of Yul.

    Sheesh, nice work there Puding. BUT, curse you! Star AW338 for under $500! Thats such a bargain but I'm not touching the bank account, car fund :( Damn you puding.

    Actually, would you consider doing an article on the Wiki if Dave OKs it? You could put all the latest suff on one page there. Might give new players a feel for just how huge airsoft really is.

    Ebaybanned to only supply wholesale in the future

    Orginal Source : www.ebaybanned.com
    Hi all buyer,

    Today is the first year anniversary of EBaybanned, I am really appropriate all buyers and who make allowances for our mistake. Last year, we grow up from month to month, from a part time ebay seller to a company got monthly sale volume over USD300,000. We offer a special channel for your chinese AEG product need, we never cheat you money by dishonest shipping cost, we only sell product as same as my photo.

    As all you see, recently we are sole agent for many products. My volume let me have power to deal with individual producer. BUT my dealers also start to complain: i should change to different role to contribute the field. I SHOULD STOP THE RETAIL. But, my mainly consideration is, how much the final user can save?

    For example : SLS Tactical Holster 6004 fit 1911, my retail price is USD77.3 shipped. On the other hand, i can offer USD34 for my reseller. I believe reasonable reseller can offer the final buyer at USD65-69. End up over 10% can be saved. ( Do not forget, my USD77.3 is very low already)

    All my friend, come with the revolutionary change, tell your nearest shop EB airsoft is here, tell him there is chance to earn money ! Friend, you can keep to enjoy EB price with ''hand touch feeling'' on shipping. Help me to contact your friendly local shop ! Thanks

    P.S We will stop the retail sections at least 1 week, all buyer paid before 12 Aug will be shipped still. I should say sorry again since we move warehouse last week and make some late on your package .

    regards

    Paul

    http://airsoftglobal.com/product_info.php?products_id=7720&osCsid=c22da3724dfc648d8cc3e3f2da53d08b
    One for 1911 lovers (or those who appreciate a nice gun) - the new Tokyo Marui M.E.U. pistol. As you can probably tell, it differs from your bog-standard 1911 government pistol, with a trouser-stirring appearance thanks to the stunning grip, trigger and novak grips. The detailing is as good as any other Marui gun and it will surely have thoroughly solid performance as per-usual for a Tokyo Marui gun.

    Product : Loads of DBoys Stuff

    Orginal Source : www.arniesairsoft.co.uk
    Just saw this on airsoft-news.eu: Dboys is coming up with a bucket-load of new stuff (including promo caps for their fans).

    Here's what I could make out:

    1) Engraved Metal Bodies: yeah, finally! they look pretty neat and even semi-accurate, compared to KA's and G&P's.

    FN, HK416 (although its not the only receiver with bullet symbols on the selector) and even an Sr25 body!!

    Compare the pics with this King Arms' FN metal body:
    http://www.kingarms.com/productpage.asp?prodid=1115

    And it seems like they copied the G&P replica of the lasered SR25 body, wich is pretty well replicated, BTW:
    http://www.gp-web.com/en/productspop.php?pid=78
    http://www.knightarmco.com/images/sr25.html

    2) Some stuff that looks like gas gun internals?

    3) Barrel mounted M203: it even seems to have the QD front attachment

    4) M203 40 mm grenade; dont know how the ACM ones are performing

    5) KAC 5,56 QD silencer: wow! It seems to replicate the old G&p style:

    Theres a synthetic ak grip in there too, I wonder what varient its for, its not an ak74 type anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,261 Puding


    it look like its for the AKS74U, i have the 'Element Polymer hand guard for AKS74U' i got it for about 15 - 20 usd from rsov


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,765 ✭✭✭ Stercus Accidit


    I thought that, but also, the aksu was never issued with polymer handgrips was it not?
    I thought it was fazed out by the time polymer grips became popular.

    Prototype polymer grips were made for the AKSU but never went into service in Russia. The Ukraine do use them.

    what he said :) i do like the polymer look even thought the elements parts i got needed a lot of dremeling and work to get them to fit correctly


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,314 Fiach Dubh


    I had a bit of trouble with my element ones too. The pistol grip fits fine but the lower foregrip is quite loose due to there being no tang mount.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,261 Puding


    same problem i had, bit of improvisation and i did not take much to get it sorted


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,314 Fiach Dubh


    I just shoved a bit of cardboard inside to brace it :D

    :rolleyes: yer thats about what i did as well ;)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,314 Fiach Dubh


    About the new AK in the Dboy's article which Airsoft News EU report it's name "Krebs". Krebs are a real steel company that make custom AK's so I'd assume it'll be based on one of their designs. Maybe some type of Krinkov based on the AKSU body? Or possibly an Onyx.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,261 Puding


    the last krebs i came across was the jg version, this version did not impress me at all jg-0516TU-02.jpg

    im hoping that dboys may be looking to make some of the lovely accessory's :)

    Project : World Airsoft Registry (W.A.R.) Project

    Original Source : http://www.popularairsoft.com/we-declare-war
    Hold your horses! Before you start pulling out all your AEGs and pistols and point them at us, we are declaring the World Airsoft Registry (W.A.R.) project now open. We thought about this to be able to compile and learn the number of active airsoft teams around the world and put this information into one e-book. Sort of like your school yearbook minus the freckles, braces, and retainers. No prom queens included too.

    Masterchief is in charge of this project so you can submit to him your team profile, logos and photos for us to ready for W.A.R. All photos and logos should be in high resolution, at 300 dpi in .TIF/JPG/PNG formats. You can also submit a 10-15 second video in MPEG4 format if you want to send greetings.

    How will submit your team details to us? Well, all you need to do is download this form:

    Popular Airsoft W.A.R. form

    Fill it up and email it together with the photos, your team logo and video to Masterchief at [email protected] (it has 7GB of space so it's more than adequate than our own internal email quota). Deadline for submissions will be on the 15th of November 2008 and release will be by the start of 2009.

    Hopefully, you submit your photos with your team in their best Sunday dress.

    Now, let's see how many active airsoft teams there are around the world. Your guess will be as good as ours.

    There are a number of things that fail on that JG AK but the biggest one has to be using a 47 milled receiver with it's sloped stock tang and short 47 stock. It throws the balance of a long rifle off completely. A stamped receiver with the 74 skeleton stock would improve it a lot. Not that I'd be touching it anyway ;)
