2015 G&P M653

Features the old style "Colt Gray" receiver color and full "A1" Colt trademarks.
Polarstar V2 JACK
Guarder "Clear" Bucking and Nub
ProWin Hop-Up Unit
Scratches and wear from use.
Polarstar JACK is semi-auto only. The trigger board was damaged during installation.  Replacement Polarstar Universal Trigger Boards are available for about $30.
Pictured accessories (PAQ4-C, Aimpoint Mk III, Sling, Surefire G2 Light & Mount) NOT included.

Nice. $700 was a screaming deal for that rifle.

It's not a dated gun. '08 and '12 PTWs are sought after items within a certain market. The Michigan Airsoft community just probably isn't that market.

The vast majority of Michigan airsofters won't shell out $300 for an AEG, much less $700.

My suggestion would be to wait until Tackleberry's PTW Forum gets back up and running and post the gun there. You'll definitely find a buyer.

I've always had good luck with them, especially gear. I've ordered at least two replica PCs from them and a handful of pouches.

What's your asking price?

I'd be all about a western themed event, but, yeah, good luck getting people to purchase the guns.

Probably the easiest thing to do is set up a western themed springers/pistols/shotguns game and don't put any restrictions on the type of springer/pistols/shotguns being used.


Price dropped to


Price drop to $500 shipped.


You may want to ask on the MiA FB page. It's quite a bit more active than the forums.


Newbie Discussion / Re: Milsim kit?

MSW requires a semi-modern impression. NATO attendees must wear Multicam unless they can muster a squad of 9 or more guys. For example, a group of 9 guys could run a Norwegian, German, UK, etc impression and use the camo patterns in use by those units. I say semi-modern because a group of dudes ran 2010 75th Ranger Regiment loadouts and wore ACU. Obviously, not current modern impression, but close enough.

The vast majority of "milsim" or scenario type events require a green-based camo for one team and a tan-based camo for the other team. Some provide a list of acceptable green or tan based camos that can be used.

You're probably fine wearing USMC 1968 kit since the camo has a green base, but you might get some weird looks from the geardos.

$550 and I'll throw in a Polarstar JACK for free.

Seriously though, not interested in splitting.

WTS: HK416C with Polarstar JACK
- VFC HK416C with JACK installed
- Original accessories (sights, magazine)
- Original box/manual/advertising

This is a VFC HK416C purchased by me in the Spring of 2018. It has had a Polarstar JACK installed in the VFC gearbox shell. The shell has been slightly shaved down in order to sit lower and correct alignment issues. A Maple Leaf 80 Degree bucking has been installed.

The gun is wired so that the FCU is located in the pistol grip and the battery is located in the buffer tube extension. This makes swapping batteries really simple, but also allows access to the FCU without needing to bend wires or cram both batteries and FCU into the confined space of the pistol grip.

Please note that the pictured air-rig, HPA tank, EMAG, Eotech and sling are not included.

Price: $420 shipped via USPS with delivery confirmation.

I'm the property appraiser for a county government. I conduct sale, land value and appraisal studies to support township property assessors and make sure they are not over or under-assessing property values.

I used to make maps and do map analysis as a full time GIS analyst for the same county.
