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.

Updated to reflect desire to acquire a particular item.

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?

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.

Looking to find some of those relatively out of stock cyma or lct plum midcaps.  I also enjoy collecting Russian oversuits, size is somewhat between a 48 and 50-4 for reference,

I can do paypal or if close to Mason or attending the REC games put on at TC paintball Charlotte field I can do cash.  Feel free to let me know here or on my "Gunmane" accounts on Red Alliance or Arnies Airsoft forums.

Tech Questions / Re: Any techs still out there?

Thanks for the offer, wasn't sure if you were still taking on projects.  I've managed so far to fix most of my issues, got a soldering tool and managed to not destroying everything using it to put deans on.  Despite all the headaches I should have done this stuff years ago.

Tech Questions / Any techs still out there?

As the title says, I severely need help from someone who does not hurt themselves somehow every time they open up a gearbox (just tore a chunk out of one finger tonight).  Not sure whether to put this over in commerce or not.

I have three v3 gearboxes out of action atm, of which two I have either failed to get back working or have ruined the new wire harness sets I had for them and thus cannot go further with trying to fix them.

One is from a LCT RPK, and save for spring and SHS high torque motor is completely stock.  Had tried to put one of those Modify brand wire harness that come with deans in and whilst trying to get the semi auto setting to not do burst or having other issues, one of the metal tabs that is apart of the switch portion sheared off.  Tried to put the original wire harness in (which frustratingly had its screw to the shell missing) but cannot get the gearbox to work again.

Other is an older cobbled together gearbox which failed last sunday in game.  Discovered to my amusement the spring guide had broke.  Had it all back together but yet again another Modify wire harness tab shear off, and my heart sank.

Third gearbox I am afraid to touch atm till at least my hands recover.  I assume something in it has broken as well.

I just want to get gearboxes working again and with deans connectors for my recent switch to 7.4v lipos, possibly even have my old Real Sword SVD get deans put on it.  I may keep trying to at least get the old wiring sets back in and the gearboxes working, but I am at my wits end now and considering going for the nuclear option and just buying some gearboxes of GI or anywhere else that would convert them to deans.  Sick and tired of screwing up what should be simply work.

I live just outside of Mason so I am unfortunately far away from most fields and possible techs so I would likely have to ship stuff out if not flat out hire someone to send me new boxes made idiot proof.

Seeing as how everyone has moved on to facebook besides me, I might as well type something up regardless.

Feels like a decade has passed since I last visited Jeremy and the SK crew.  Worth the drive despite how ineffective I was today.  Naturally there are the usual issues that come up during games, which get amplified with such a large crowd, but all in all I had a positive day, unlike most Saturdays I have had in the past year.

Thanks again to Jeremy for the kind gift that saved my day, and the laughs during breaks.  I have always loved hearing stories of past games and events.  My thanks to the cameraman Nick (apologies if I got your name mixed up, brain a bit fried still), and the rest of the SK crew and friends for herding all the cats today.  Not sure if I'll be able to get back out to see you all again this year, but I will try to get out to your side of the Mitten more often.  Hopefully next time I'll have some of my stuff reworked to at least be up to 5 years ago in battery tech wise. ;D

Did that bring back memories for sure.  If only I could wind the clock back now.  Thanks for the post!

Event Planning / Re: Action paintball big airsoft game tomorrow
« on: July 20, 2018, 06:26:28 PM »
First I have heard of it since any discussion is likely on facebook and not here.  Having no account over there myself, I can only check the field owner's public page which bears no mention of it.

I'm set for a more local game on Sunday and have yard work tomorrow which is unfortunate.  Been meaning to see Pagan and the SK crew again for some time.

All I can say is don't miss out on it if you are local to Action Paintball, and prep for possible rain.

Airsoft Discussion / Re: How many mags do you carry?
« on: July 01, 2018, 02:52:16 PM »
In the few games I have attended this year, I've rarely had to carry more than one or two additional mags, depending on the replica I am using (Bizon for example is a bit more hassle to carry a spare than a kalash).  Due to the nature of REC games with multiple reload times and that I have usually stuck to semi only over the years and a speed loader or two usually lasts me long enough in those situations.

Of course, that has backfired on me before when I neglect to carry a spare magazine and the current game lasts longer than expected.

If I had to be fully loaded for some reason it would probably be between 5-7 magazines,
