-got NINJAD by the worst person-
T91 railed handguard. Yes or no?
Looks like a regular M4 with an ugly stock.
everything before the barrel looks ugly as fuck
Just had a nice long talk about gear with Notrabies. 10/10 would interrogate again.
Most of the things I've posted haven't been done before or are such rare bits of knowledge that people don't know how to do it. Its like a breadcrumb trail future Maruzen users can follow, its what I've had to do with other people to learn a lot of what I know now.
I figure that even if I give up on these at some point, I'll probably still be on this forum and so other users will have a steady way of contacting me for info.
Low power? I don't get it. At my field I can't use the chinashit copies of the Maruzen clones because the FPS is too high for CQB. Hence why I never bought one. So I'd imagine low power is a pro for a CQB weapon.
This is also why I post about my shotguns so much, most people don't even know a thing about them, I'm just proud I've taught you guys enough that you remember that they exist.
There's a ridiculous number of factors at work, but with time and parts you can basically get them shooting any way you want them to. Once I get my shorty set up for an external air rig and replace the leaky hose, I'll be throwing in the airsoft surgeon's upgraded hammer spring. In theory I'll be shooting 8-10 shots per shell with no issue and be unaffected by most cold weather that I find indoors. (At least down into the mid 50's)
Hm, I'm still considering getting an M870 sometime after I get my 105. I'll have to talk more with you later and see if it's worth the huge investment.
For example, here's one of my favorite stories involving these shotguns.
For the first time, I was letting one of the staff members borrow one of my M870's. I taught him the basics, and we're all ready to go to town. Unfortunately, its cold on the field. Game objective is to capture all of the 15ish flags/objects located in the center of the field.
Him and I start off the game and get a sweet firing angle on their spawn and we see one of the regulars zip by about 15 feet in front of us towards the objectives. We immediately unload on him, but he's wearing a trenchcoat. He makes multiple passes without even realizing he's being hit by over 100 bb's. We finally nail him in the goggles and he turns our way and realizes we were lighting him up the whole time. He takes back all of the objectives and tells us he had absolutely no idea what was happening. If it was warmer, or our shells were loaded with less bb's, he would have felt the first shot no problem. Point being, you can customize these things to shoot any way you want.
Luckily, when it works, the M1100 is far more nightmarish then the M870's.
"when it works" seems like the deal breaker
Oh, and the initial investment isn't that bad actually. While you've got the whole Canadian nightmare of FPS regs, its not bad at all.
You start off with a few shells and a speed loader, with a large dependence on your sidearm, and you slowly build it up. All you really need is an M870 or M1100, the redwolf upgrade to deal with your dumb Canadian laws, and about 10 shell to start with. Considering the things that have been going on lately in my M1014 kit discussion, I feel confident enough to start recommending the M1100 again. We're currently working on the last internal part that needs upgrading before the whole thing is good to go.
I'm thinking of running a KWA MP9 with the 870, I'd prefer a TM Skorpion but fuck if I know where to get one.
Mmmmm KMP9 goodness
Because of the pistol grip design it gets that wonderful efficiency in cold weather, and a because of the short hose length it gets a minor boost in FPS. My Full stock M870 chronoed about 350-380 depending on temperatures, and if you get that upgrade I imagine it'll pass your limits with ease.
Most importantly, due to its tiny size you can use it as a backup to your primary so it doesn't require you to have a pistol.
Also, apparently it only costs 1 more in Canadian dollars than in US dollars, so that's not bad.
So with the upgrade its about $350+shipping. Then you throw in a few packs of shells and you should be set for under $500. You'll just need to request Redwolf to include a chronograph sheet so you can import it legally.
In theory at least, Canadasoft is a confusing quagmire to the foreigners.
gross ris is a problem with rails
makes you wanna gouge your eyes with nails
canadian dollars are inferior to the america counter part
but its alright, we street smart
Thank you German. Also, the RIS is removable/cutable and you could probably source a defender II foregrip (those look damn good) if you looked around enough.
Basically, they're the hardest to get up to high FPS, because they have the long hose and they're M870's. Luckily, its quite probable that you could get it done. Just send Redwolf an email, about how Canadasoft's fps limits work and ask if they think it would work. The wood stock with the upgrade runs about $460 with shipping, so with a few packs of shells you're still only looking at $600. Also, just wait for Redwolf to announce one of their sales if they don't have one going one right now. I shaved $200 off my M870 purchase.
guize I'm super excited to get my new pistols next month
for about $712, or about $900 with the AS upgrade
That's a pretty sizeable lump of money..
But goddamn it's so sexy..
iirc their velocity limit is like 501fps or something like that?
A couple of the retailers here have import deals set up with customs and RWA, so they usually do the importing.
I mean at this point, you're only about $100-$200 short of buying a Yuji Gun Factory custom SPAS-12 or M3 Super 90. And that company also makes a long length tightbore for the Maruzen series (another $50)that will boost fps above the required limits, probably to about 450 fps.
So one of my friends just got that WE G17 and brought it over for me to take a look at, and I'm pretty impressed- holding it, it's not bad by any means, definitely higher quality externals at least than my KJW M9 (granted, mine is the older plastic one), and with a few good features like easily adjustable hop-up and the trademark Glock safety. What really struck me is the weight, for a plastic gun it's pretty heavy and although it's been a while since I held one I'm pretty sure the real Glock is about the same as the replica. It also has very heavy recoil which took me by surprise. That said, I haven't actually seen it shoot, and for all I know the internals may actually be total crap, but it shows signs of being a decent sidearm. The main obstacle now is finding magazines.
Doesn't it just take TM magazines?
Also, apparently Redwolf will not ship to individuals in Canada, its in their FAQ, and after reading up a bit, I agree that your only legitimate hope is retailer importation. What a bummer.
