[QUOTE=xXEnder007Xx;19893189]Nice foregrip mod. Going to have to try that now. With a rail on the bottom of the shotgun I can begin to attach endless amounts of goodies that should never be on there.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=xXEnder007Xx;19826747]I see this being quite intimidating in CQB. Just needs a stock. [img]http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/2194/dsc0098xu.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Oh god.
Here come the mutated children.
Oh fuck. I'll e-mail that tidbit about the rail on the pump for the M1014 to my buddy - this should be fun when May and June roll about. Also, fuck yes having three reviews on the same shotgun. I want to high-five you guys but I don't know where you live.
Are gear reviews okay?
Or part reviews? I'm thinking of reviewing that sick tac-light I got.

KWC Python .357 Magnum Review [url]http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=887792[/url]
1/31/2010 [b]Added[/b] KWC .357 Magnum
KJW Xcelerator [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010234.jpg?t=1270747646[/img] First thing i noticed was the extended slide release and the ambidextrous safety, which are more easily seen in [url=http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010236.jpg?t=1270747887.jpg]this photo.[/url] [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010237.jpg?t=1270747767[/img] [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010238.jpg?t=1270747826[/img] The rear sights are fully (back, forward, left, and right) adjustable, and both sides have those little plastic tubes that collect light, fiber optic sights are what they're called I think. [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010242.jpg[/img] The outer barrel and guide rod are chrome. [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010241.jpg?t=1270748035[/img] The gas valve (?)(The red thing in this picture) is the same as in the KJW 1911 series, so I don't recommend CO2 mags. (this part broke on my last KJW 1911 when I ran CO2 through it.) [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010248.jpg?t=1270748411[/img][img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010249.jpg?t=1270748374[/img] The magazines hold 27+1 bbs, hold enough gas to fire all of them off (if you aren't shooting 2 bbs a second, that is to say, not using gas efficiently.) The magazines are also almost heavier than the gun. No kidding, these are heavy motherfuckers. This gun also takes those new 50+1 round hi capa magazines that just came out. [img]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010250.jpg[/img] [tab]i'm a terrible shot, but if i could hit this, then i could easily hit a man-sized target[/tab] Doesn't look too impressive, but realize i'm the worst shot with a pistol ever. The fact that I was hitting the target (at 50ft) and making some good holes in it with a pistol should be impressive enough. Not to mention, 45/49 hitting a less than chest-sized target isn't bad either. I did a range test after this and It went around 80ft before dropping, and this is before I have changed anything, including hop up. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010239.jpg[/IMG] [tab]Obligatory FPS view[/tab] Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. But I will say this, I bought it from Evike because they had a 0.99 cent mag if you bought a gun with it, it took them 3 weeks to finally ship it because they had to "verify my address" which is stupid as hell. After it shipped it took 4 days to get here, but I live in California so that's why it got here fairly quick. [editline]06:44PM[/editline] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYfvme1RD2I[/media] Have a video of me shooting it. UPDATE: some fag stole it, im never going to see it again :frown:
added KJW, If you did a review and it's not here post it here. Sorry for being away took a break from airsoft
Isn't this the third gun review thread I've seen? Anyway, I write some reviews as soon i get some pictures taken.

Not really a gun review but it's a mini-review on a novelty item. [b]FAKE RUBBER BAYONET[/b] [url]http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=29_64&products_id=3126[/url] I bought this for ten bucks off ASGI because I get a kick out of this kind of stuff, and it's not terribly expensive. So, it came out of the box in a little plastic bag and a plain black text label reading "PLASTIC BAYONET" so I take it out. My interceptor vest pushed the knife handle at an odd angle to the blade was kinda sideways but it's bendable and plastic so I was able to fix it pretty easily. It's bendable, not sharp, you COULD hurt someone if you stab like you're supposed too. BUT if someone (Like 78% of airsofters) wear any form of vest or a MOLLE it could easily be used to simulate a close kill. [img_thumb]http://www.cubeupload.com/files/689400dscn0635.jpg[/img_thumb] So it has a plastic sheath, it makes alot of noise bouncing around inside but it's a nice piece to look at. It secures to a belt (too big for a MOLLE ANYWHERE) by velcro, but it's not too tight so I had to position it in just the right place (Where the velcro on the belt meets) to keep it in place. The knife is kept in with a velcro strap, which again isn't tight but prevents it from falling out. [img_thumb]http://www.cubeupload.com/files/b79c00dscn0636.jpg[/img_thumb] The entire thing is black, it's shiny, but not sparkling so I doubt you'd have a problem being stealthy with it. So now for the bayonet part; [img_thumb]http://www.cubeupload.com/files/5ed800dscn0637.jpg[/img_thumb] The large part of the guard has a large hole in which goes over the barrel and the back as an indent which slips into that little black part under the front sight and locks into place. The hole is a bit too large so the thing wobbles around and it doesn't feel very sturdy or strong but it looks fucking cool. You take it off by squeezing two latches on either side of the grip and there you go. Not much else to say about it. It's a display piece, a conversation piece and a slightly practical tool. 7/10. It's ten dollars, so it's not a big deal but the craftsmenship could be slightly better. Maybe it's not as tight around the barrel due to it being an M4 and not a full sized M16 but the entire thing feels frail and nothing seems to fit so, meh.

I was going to do a review of the KJW P226, but looks like the magazine is leaking like fuck. Once I get that fixed or get a new mag I might get around to reviewing it. The mags I did get to shoot off felt great though.

Sounds good, I'm going to pick up some more mags next week or so, and we can do a ~jointops~ review

[b][u]The G&G Combat Machine Raider M4[/b][/u] (You'll have to forgive the shitty pictures) [img]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1156.snc4/149834_1481771732030_1465940962_31118226_5865058_n.jpg[/img] So I needed a new gun as my CA M15 was on it's last leg. I needed something rather reliable and affordable and in time for my next game. I ordered the G&G Raider M4 based on the good reputation of the Combat Machine series of AEG's. [b]First Impressions:[/b] So, the first thing you notice about the gun is it's really light due to the polymer body which is the second thing you notice. It's extremely sound and durable, no wobble or signs seams. I've only had the gun for two hours now and I've already banged it around my accident with no adverse effects to the body. [b]Packaging:[/b] From what I've seen the boxes for the CM's used to be big and flashy, glossy pictures all over it and a clear plastic frame to hold the gun. This box however is very different, it has a very plain and serious looking box (Which I prefer) and inside, the same plastic mold to hold the gun, (Albeit no longer clear) most people complain about the flimsy packaging but mine was very sound and even if it did get thrown around, why worry? It's a durable Combat Machine. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs601.ash2/155302_1481771012012_1465940962_31118220_6185918_n.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1142.snc4/148485_1481771132015_1465940962_31118221_6597135_n.jpg[/img_thumb] Along with the gun the box has a 400 round Hi-Cap which has a nice engraved "5.56x45" marking on the side, a manual for the original M4 Combat Machine (Which didn't help me at all.) and a bag of quality BB's. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1133.snc4/149591_1481771372021_1465940962_31118223_6414514_n.jpg[/img_thumb] [b]Externals:[/b] I honestly think it's a cool looking gun, the externals are all matt-black and not glossy like most cheaper AEG's. The stock is a three point adjustable, although I found it could only go to the last two pegs with a battery and I didn't want to force it. The rails are all made of the same material as the actual gun and has some markings "B13, A11 etc." which I don't really understand but are neat to have none the less. The rails which I originally thought would chip or be fragile are anything but and they look metal up until the point you touch them [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1156.snc4/149834_1481771732030_1465940962_31118226_5865058_n.jpg[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1126.snc4/148810_1481771852033_1465940962_31118227_6190373_n.jpg[/img_thumb] The barrel and front site are from the same mold so you can't take the sight off to mount another one, that's a very minor con. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1175.snc4/154750_1481772412047_1465940962_31118231_2710015_n.jpg[/img_thumb] I also noticed that the orange tip is threaded (Fuck yeah, my CA didn't have this) and although a lot of people bitch about the orange tip having a 'chip' in it, it's actually the same on the real steel version of the M4 and that notch is made to cut barbed wire. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs992.snc4/76578_1481771972036_1465940962_31118228_4356485_n.jpg[/img_thumb] The grip is really nice, having never seen or used anything other then a standard M4 grip in person this new design and texture is really comfortable on the hand, although time will tell how comfortable it stays during use or with gloves. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1170.snc4/154259_1481772172041_1465940962_31118229_1421389_n.jpg[/img_thumb] The gun is pretty bare decal wise. There is a Combat Machine logo on the one side, along with a big WARNING sticker, on the other side is nothing. I'm okay with this. [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs948.snc4/74124_1481772292044_1465940962_31118230_8193731_n.jpg[/img_thumb] I wish they had made a blowback version of the Raider. The forward assist doesn't reset the spring like in the Blowback version. Charging handle has no purpose and the ejection port door needs to be pried open with your finger nail and held down (Hop up is really stiff too, I didn't even bother to try and adjust it though) All the important parts are metal like the sling swivels, trigger and buffer tube etc but the body is of course polymer. The Crane stock confused me when I first went to order, you'd think you could use Crane Stock batteries in a Crane Stock but you need a Nunchuck regardless. It's a minor con, but the reason they have the Crane Stock at all is to fit the RIS system on and balance out the gun so what are you going to do? Getting the battery in there isn't a very fast affair but it's not painfully difficult either. As a side note, it has a replica gas tube as well, although I wouldn't have noticed if it didn't, it's a nice touch. [b]Performance[/b] Unfortunately, I didn't have a huge chance to play with it today. Expect a in-depth look Saturday or Sunday after my next game. I did fire off some shots though, although the accuracy of my statements should be taken with a grain of salt as we have hurricane force winds and I was firing into them. Even with the strong winds the BB's didn't really go off the mark very far and the range is excellent. The selector switch clicks crisply into place and the rate of fire is excellent as well. Not all magazines are a perfect fit, my CA mags, STAR mags (Along with another off brand Hi-Cap) were all lose fits. I fixed it by wrapping electric tape around them to fit them in snug and they fire without a problem now. The GI slip I got with it says it chrono'd at 335 FPS [img_thumb]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1172.snc4/154426_1481771452023_1465940962_31118224_2807126_n.jpg[/img_thumb] [b]Overall:[/b] I adore this gun already, it's refreshing to have a gun like this out of the box when the gun you've been using is a piece of shit. I can't wait to use it, I don't know if I'll even need a new Primary for Christmas (I was planning to get a KWA but this gun is pretty well rounded as it is) Pros: * Tough, Durable Polymer Body and RIS system * Great internals, accuracy, range, power out of the box. That about covers it, right? Cons: * Crane Stock isn't as functional as I'd like, only accepts Nunchucks. It was required to fit the RIS though. * One piece barrel and front sight. (Although they're metal, which is a pro too) * No spring reset or functioning charging handle (You get what you pay for I suppose)
Smart purchase, nice review.
[QUOTE=CodeMonkey3;26126189]I wish they had made a blowback version of the Raider. The forward assist doesn't reset the spring like in the Blowback version.[/QUOTE] They do, but it's $60 more. Also, the texture that's on the grip is [highlight]AWESOME[/highlight]. It'll stay on with gloves.
Where is the Blowback version of the raider? I know ASGI has a custom gun which is basically the raider but it would have taken more time to build and I needed this by Friday. Yeah, just tried it out with gloves. Good to go. I think it's time for another FP Gearwhores chat.
[url=http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=139_24_237&products_id=6236]This one[/url] is the one that I've got that's the Raider with blowback. The rails are also full metal and the charging handle actually works. It's good enough for the field and CQB, but if you want a bigger one, [url=http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=139_24_237&products_id=6721]you'll want this one[/url].

You get what you pay for when you pay 11.95 for a gun off amazon (I had a 25 dollar amazon gift card hanging around, and some friends of mine were just getting into airsoft and are at the "walmart gun" stage and asked me to play with them, so i needed a cheapy gun) but this gun actually surprised me in it's build quality. It's beefy and solid feeling unlike other cheapy springers and it's got a surprising amount of metal parts. If you're in the market for a cheapy gun because you have some friends in the "walmart gun" stage then I would recommend this gun. If you're in the "walmart gun" stage, then save up your money and get a DE Trishot shotgun.
Looks like a pretty decent wallhanger.
There's a GBB version of that made by Tercel. It's on ehobby under marushin or maruzen, I can't remember
