How is the hop up and barrel looking on this one?  Been hearing and seeing a lot of complaints about both, with the hop up basically being nothing at all and the barrels being rusted.  A youtube channel called NegativeAirsoft (UK tech guy) kinda shed a light on all the poor qc he'd seen in his vids.  Step forward 2 steps back kinda opinion.

Must admit I was hoping the ak12 would have been a knock out of the part but they dropped the ball on mosfet burst for the first release, though I hear the magazines and whatnot are far better than LCT.  I did almost go for their mutant ACR/AK hybrid at one point just for the fun of it.

The Gallery / My oddball collection
« on: December 05, 2019, 11:10:48 AM »
My oddball collection that folks will typically see part of at fields whenever I go out to play.  Sorry for the photo quality, there is no good place in the house lighting wise and I am inept with photo taking.

Real Sword SVD with 3-9x24 "PSO style" scope (I say that because it has the 1.7 meter height marking unlike the civilian 1.8 and afaik was made by NPZ and sold commercially by SAMOON many years ago.  Still stock, only swapped connector for deans.  Doesn't really get used much due to how I usually play.

Cyma/Dboys Aks-74:  My work horse and primary rifle.  Been taken apart and parts swapped both internal and external for years, currently has no scope rail on the receiver, ics fire selector, real Russian plum handguards, an Egyptian rear sight leaf, and of course tourniquet and sling.  Internally a mish mash of SHS and ZCI parts, with a 16tpa shs motor 12:1 shs gears iirc,  promy tightbore, lonex hop up unit, and modify flat hop bucking nub set (black iirc, I keep swapping between the black and grey ones).  Empties a mag fast but not my best semi auto response.  150 ft shots reached but not sure the extent of it, around 360 or so fps iirc.  Nukefet installed.

Cyma Bizon:  My confused child that doesn't know what role to fill.  Currently shoots above local limits for 5 foot MED, so I still can't clear buildings with it, despite the spring being a m95 zci (might be from having a non ported cylinder in it).  Mostly the same setup as the rest partswise internally, but stock metal hop up unit with the modify flat hop and promy barrel.  Range is decent for how short it is but it is picky with the mags I have for it.  Still love it though.  Apex python mosfet installed

Cyma ak104/5, 40 series:  My latest aeg purchase, not even over a year yet and I already have messed with its guts.  Recently got fixed up after finding that its spring guide and piston head both failed, now has 12:1 gears instead of 16:1, which paired with a zci 22 tpa motor seems to be making it smooth for trigger response.  Oddly enough fires just below 350 fps so actually is better than the bizon for clearing buildings.  Put a lct ultimak clone top handguard on despite not having a proper optic for it.  Nukefet installed.

Cyma/Dboys Ak-74m:  Current project gun.  Recently restored the internals of it, giving it the 16:1 gears, a zci 22 tpa motor, mostly similar internals to everything else, and slapped a random spring into it that currently puts it at 397-401 fps range.  Stock barrel and hop up unit atm (lonex chamber on the way) but I decided to try and mod my old prommy purple that was in it for flat hop with the modify nub.  It is the only one besides the SVD atm without a mosfet, but I have a gate nanoasr on the way to try out.  Externally it is an old, old, old body, like the aks-74 but the front barrel assembly is so worn around the barrel pin notch that I have to put something in there alongside the real steel pin to keep it from falling out.  Half tempted to stick the gearbox into a dboys akms body that I have in storage instead (which pin is so pressed in that it won't come apart to allow dissassembly) or find a boneyard gun to take the barrel assembly off of, maybe put it onto the full stock ak-74n body that I have which has a nice wood stock finish.

LCT RPK:  My most accursed replica to date.  Has had one of its barrel screws bored out due to it being stripped from the factory, no wobble so far though.  Fire selector lever also got replaced due to original one wearing out on its cylinder nub (why can't these companies do what lct does and weld lever and the nub together!).  Real RPK sling.  Internally it is a mess, with the  apex python mosfet wiring job done so bad I ponder how it actually works (spliced wiring to extend it back into buttsock, as well as to extend part of the wiring to the 16 tpa motor).  Stock barrel, lonex hop up chamber, modify flat hop.  No idea how it performs currently but I would say probably subpar to everything else.  Plan to just run it till it dies again and see about redoing all of it internally again.  The PBS-1 is just for lulz.

Michigan Commerce - Airsoft Guns Allowed / Ak Selector Parts
« on: November 21, 2019, 09:02:37 PM »
I have always had issues with ak selector pieces wearing out, whether it be the cylinder nub the external fire selector lever grips onto, or the inner selector gear piece gets damaged from said nub.  Not many shops carry any of the parts, and if they do, it is often only one bit or another and never complete, and also costing a fortune.

In short, I need full sets of selector parts that work.  Ideally anything like the ics ones which have the nub and lever as one welded piece but if you have a full set of the usual that will work too.  I can do paypal or if you ever find me at a game I'll pay in cash.  Also accept any you just want rid off honestly.

 :'(  I think I just teared up a little. 

I hate electrical issues with a passion, especially so when you end up having to get another mosfet unit or other bits as a result.

My main kalash is a mixture of random dboys/cyma externals, an Egyptian rear sight, Soviet plum handguards, and a gearbox that is been reworked so many times I've lost count.  I doubt she'll ever perform as nice as things folks can get stock now, but she still my own gem.

As someone who has had to battle this issue on multiple aegs, I echo what T6e9a said.  One solution besides the old pop can lid opener shim trick is to get the peg the lever sits atop of either welded or super glued in place.  Some selectors like the ICS ones are welded together by default, but they can get pretty pricey/hard to find.

Apologies for the double post, just wanted to share latest modification madness.  My PBS-1 replica arrived sooner than I thought it would, so I got it onto my bizon along with a longer inner barrel.


T6e9a, sadly no, do not have an aks-74u to run one with, and my main kalashes are long enough.  Topic updated since I caved and ordered one off a retailer.

Not going to lie, I have been tempted to get my hands on one of G&G's "AK9" whenever they come out just to feel like part of this new resurgence of PCCs. ;)

Very nice builds everyone.

From what we all saw it seems pretty clear the market direction is continuing on with the pistol caliber models from most manufacturers, alongside speedsoft focused models in either design or coloration.  We are also seeing attempts at making stuff even lighter than they already are with polymer SAWdesigns.

I did find G&G's tiny magazine ak models funny but kinda had hoped they actually branch out their ak model lines some more.  Their CM16 LMG model I see becoming the next beginner attraction if not for the price cost and that we already have folks starting out with hpa kits out of the gate.  I would love to see what their concept of an ak platform version would be like though, whether it would just be one of their rk74 models with a drum mag slapped on or something else.

As someone who is kinda firmly focused on kalash models yet not going the modern route there wasn't really anything to excite me but then again the market has been like that for awhile with anything that should have been interesting like the Makarovs and whatnot years ago turning out not so hot.  About the only thing that sorta interested me at one point was the lct ebb kits but I rather not have to open up one of them just to downgrade spring for field use again.

No, I am not one in a position to run a game myself.  The December game was likely the one put on by Airsoft Alphonse, hence the numbers.  I kinda figured what you said was the case, guess I just have to see if I can get out to a field farther away then.

Plum grips for my oldest Kalash, hoping she will function at whatever is the next game I can get to.  Other recent acquisitions in the past year would be the Sposn Partizan suit, Nerpa Chest Rig, and a cyma ak104/5.

Airsoft Discussion / How go the games at Hell Survivors?
« on: March 01, 2019, 06:27:12 PM »
As the title says, I am looking to hear how games are there now since years ago when there was the rift between them and the community after various issues arose during the games Mosin and the gang were running.  I see from time to time game days being stated on their social media pages (I don't have a facebook account so I don't really get to delve into things much) and sometimes that one youtuber organizes games there.  Is it an active group showing up on the stated shared days with their own refs and whatnot or is it just the field opening up for parties?

I would like to get out to more fields this year, and Pickney is closer than most other fields save for my regular in Charlotte.

As a growing to be regular, I do encourage folks to come out and give these guys and the field a shot.  Always have a good time despite what mechanical mishaps I get, its the older skirmish style of play I love best.  If the weather doesn't turn dreadful I'll try my darnest to come out.
