    Depends on a few factors but none of them should have to do with customs seizing them if that's your concern.

    If you import Dummy grenades into the US from say Ebairsoft or Ehobbyasia they'll get to you perfectly fine, although ordering from the former, although cheaper, it may take three to four weeks depending on your location. You will get it though.

    Ebairsoft has some of the best dummies including old Soviet designs.

    My location is the United Kingdom, the laws are somewhat fucked up here. So I don't know about it.

    It's little different than, I don't know what it's like in the UK but I don't think it will be an issue. I'd buy the cheapest grenade there and wait three or four weeks to see if it comes or not. If it does you know that they can now be bought in bulk for whatever you need them for.

    Just went to my first night game and my dinky flashlight was not enough. Can someone recommend me a good bright flashlight or flashlight website?

    Cool thanks

    Also is gear required? I'll probably only wear an ammo vest, safety glasses and a pair of gloves, but is stuff like camouflage needed?

    If you're under 18, most fields will require you to wear a full facemask.

    And no, camo isn't needed. If you're short on cash and still want some though, pick up some Woodland BDUs from a surplus store. Woodland tends to be cheap.

    Combat Machines are pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to cheap M4s, I would call that a good choice. The JG is a little bit more meh, JGs are very low-tier except for their G36s which are decent.

    On our forum classifieds someone is selling an A&K Masada with G&P internals, it comes with an AFG, an Eotech, a three-leaf lipo, and several mags, all for $225.

    I was trying to get a G&P M4 anyway and this compromises that with a cool gun that's not an M4, go for it guys?

    Sights aren't a necessity and I would wait until you get more important things before worrying about a sight. The iron sights should be good enough for now.

    So I was looking into an M60 airsoft gun recently, its about 360$ and weighs almost 20 lbs.
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=5251

    This would be the one. Anybody have any experience with it or something similar?

    I have one. Out of the box it has some serious problems, but if you're willing to fix them it is IMO the best support gun for the money.

    Basically, the motor sucks and the hop-up is nonexistent. If you replace the hop-up bucking and put a plastic spacer in over the rubber, and swap out the motor with a decent high-speed one, the performance becomes drastically better. I also recommend using the included bypass for the potentiometer it uses to adjust ROF. Otherwise it's great- unbreakable gearbox, extremely reliable and effective box mag, and ergonomics that aren't as bad as you'd think. Definitely better than the A&K M249s, for sure.

    Weapon mounted. I want to mount it to my m4 or mp5 so it doesn't have to be a tiny flashlight designed for pistols.

    I have the longer version and I agree with all of those points

    get a tightbore barrel for longer range and consistency though

    Edited:

    it's like $320 without discounts on evike right now btw

    The TM Glock is better. The KSC's feed ramp is a separate piece and made out of cheap plastic and isn't as sturdy or reliable as TM's design. Not to mention the TM is exponentially more accurate and has far better range.

    Just got word back; 36 acres of land from a local airsofting group are willing to co-operate to put together an Event.
    What type of event should I do? Something Fallout/STALKER/Cool rpg with shooting you can think of related, or real scenario milsim game.

    Got a problem with my A&K M249 SAW. First it wasn't feeding properly, so I tried pushing the barrel and spring in into the groove of the gearbox and held it tight. The gun is strange, sometimes It won't fire unless I push the barrel in. So, now it's getting feedage problems and the motor started getting really sluggish in dry fire. I don't want to mess it up even more, any help?

    No, I was testing it with an M4 High Cap Mag. Haven't tried the drum out yet. Everytime I hold the trigger, the motor makes a slow buzzing sound. I'm scared to even work on this anymore, fearing I might break it more. From what I heard, It's not good to dry fire?

    Sounds like the motor's fried. Dry-firing isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be, the only difference between dry and live fire is that the presence of the BB builds up a slight amount of pressure that slows down the piston before impact, which is why dry fire makes a loud crack as opposed to a slightly more muffled thunk.

    I second the recommendation of a G&P M120, I have one in my M60 and it's excellent. Trigger response is a little slow as the motor takes time to get going, but by the second shot in a first it's at full speed and at 370fps is throwing out 17rps on just a 9.6V NiMh.

    Fuck. Yeah, it sounds like the motor is trying to turn or whatever, but It kinda dies after that. Anyone know about pushing the barrel in just to make the gun fire? Also, It could be the battery too. Using a 11.1v lipo, and just bought the balance charger yesterday and charged it for a few hours. Possibly an incorrect charge?

    are you sure you're charging it correctly/haven't overcharged it

    do you have a lipo voltmeter

    clean and lube your hopup, air nozzle, barrel, and the tube that lets the bbs go from the mag to the chamber and make sure your barrel is locked in correctly

    I'm no gas expert, but I would guess that the valve mechanism is gunked up with something and needs to be cleaned. What may be happening is that as it's fired, the mag cools down, and that cooldown causes some oil or something in the valve to become tackier or more solid, which prevents the valve from closing again.

    Makes some sense. I've been using propane and I might have put too much silicon into the mix and those mags get freezing cold when I run them.

    What's the fix? If you know.
