( [b]Clip =/= Magazine[/b] ) -The website you are shopping at is probably [url=www.hobbytron.com]shitty.[/url] (see below for good sites) Good websites you should shop from: [code]Clothing/Gear/Camo [url]http://www.hassayampasurplus.com[/url] - Based in the US of A, fantastic costumer service, and great obscure camos. [url]www.ebairsoft.com[/url] - Based in asia, has some cheap offbeat camo. [url]www.flecktarn.co.uk[/url] - You'd never guess what they sell. Great selection, good service by phone. [url]www.polimil.co.uk[/url] - Have a browse, they have great service and a large selection of useful bits and bobs. [url]www.opsgear.com[/url] - This site is the place to get gear for your airsoft needs. They also have a small selection of guns but this site is dedicated to gear. [url]www.bdu.com[/url] - American site primarily for buying combats. [url]www.soviet-propaganda.com/[/url] - Good customer support, based in Russia. [url]www.skippersmilitarysupply.com/[/url] - US based, Russian gear. [url]www.redforces.com/[/url] - Soviet/modern gear. Airsoft Stores UK [url]www.fire-support.co.uk[/url] - Reasonable pricing (for the UK anyway), good service. [url]www.airsoftscotland.co.uk[/url] - Complete rip-off, although they get good deals on Pyros. USA [url]www.airsoftextreme.com[/url] - Easy to navigate and has some of the best guns in stock. [url]www.airsplat.com[/url] - I'm joking, seriously. Do not buy from here. [url]www.airsoftgi.com[/url] - AirsoftGI is basically the god of Airsoft stores. There are almost no complaints from them but apparently there Returns need some work. [url]www.evike.com[/url] - Not reliable on shipping dates, but they have a large selection. Hong Kong/China Dealers [url]www.wgcshop.com[/url] - Okay prices, Seem to have to get quotes on the price before you actually buy. [url]www.rsov.com[/url] - Brilliant service, postage is steep unless you buy in bulk, in which case it's the cheapest site around. [url]www.redwolfairsoft.com[/url] - Another Chinese retailer, good prices, some rare pieces. [url]www.ebaybanned.com[/url] - Brilliant prices, good service and delivery. The horror stories are from people who didn't read the on-screen instructions when buying. Canadian Dealers [url]VelocityArms.ca[/url] - No opinion, Seems to carry a LOT of things, almost looks like a canadian AGI. [url]CapitalAirsoft.ca[/url] - No opinion, A hodgepodge of high-range and low range AEGs, doesn't have many in stock at a time. [url]BuyAirsoft.ca[/url] - No opinion, Hard to navigate, OK selection. [url]Mach1Airsoft.com[/url] - No opinion, A hodgepodge of high to mid-range AEGs, terrible site design and not many parts to buy. [/code] :siren:[b]READ THIS IF YOU ARE FROM THE UK AND WANT TO START AIRSOFTING, THERE ARE LAWS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT![/b]:siren: [QUOTE=MC Mackers;22400633]Right my specialist area :P (i guess being a brit is handy) UKARA is basically a license that restricts RIF's (Realistic Imitation Firearms) to comply with the VCRA (a really big law about weapons)you have to be UKARA registered to purchase a RIF however this can be avoided because you can get your airsoft weapon in Two-Tone which is painting half the weapon in a bright colour (mostly bright green, blue or blaze orange) this means you can purchase the weapon without having the UKARA license but you still have to be over 18 to purchase them. you can get UKARA registered from any of the skirmish sites you go to aslong as your over 18 and have played there for atleast 3 times in two months. Some good websites to purchase Two-Tone weapons from are: [url]www.zerooneairsoft.co.uk[/url] - will spray paint any weapon two tone for FREE [url]www.actionhobbies.co.uk[/url] - has a selection of specially made two tone weapons [url]www.airsoftworld.co.uk[/url] - same as above and apparently two tone any weapon other than GBB for 20 quid [url]www.surplusstore.co.uk[/url] - has a wide selection of Two-Tone weapons and various other bits and bobs [url]www.fire-support.co.uk[/url] - has a small selection of non-UKARA (another term for Two-Tone) which apparently will also two tone any weapon for 15 quid if asked by email EDIT: Non-UKARA weapons are either Two-Tone weapons as stated above or even with a clear plastic body but i highly recommend getting the Two-Tone weapons since I have had really bad experiences with clear plastic weapons as they almost always break very quickly (and you can get metal two tones) also, dont quote me on this because theres apparently a crack-down on this at the moment here in the North-East but you can spray your Two-Tone weapon back to black after you have bought it because the police cant really do anything after it has been purchased... just dont be stupid and point it at them or there will be loads of armed police showing up.

[QUOTE=DarkSamus;19143817]If you look again i pimp slapped you into the ground with my edit. That sucks that you are going to lose your M14s, what are they going to be replaced by? Wood cutouts?[/QUOTE]We already use Daisy Rubberized springfields filled with lead (Heavier so when you use an M14 it's much easier for you to spin and do rifle movements.)We got around like 30 new Springfields at the beginning of the year. Aways nice to bring them all in and unpackage them all so now we have a reason to get rid of the M14's. Bolt does come out and go back in for inspection. [img]http://www.odcmp.org/503/images/image004d.jpg[/img] They say they are industruble but we have one that's been split where the bolt ends and spilt again after taping it up just a bit up. Rifle looks awesome with a bunch of tape on it. Look's like someone preformed surgery on it. We also have 2 Color guard M1's (Real wood but the bolt and barrel is a shiny silver) and the bolts are badly broken and loose. Never use em ever. [img]http://media.collegepublisher.com/media/paper657/stills/tn9e4an2.jpg[/img]
Well at least the springfields are cool looking. Still would be nice to keep the real M14s though.

It does not look bad so far, just a bit weaker for a spring and some reviews say the iron sights suck and it often fires 2 bb's at a time.
Hey I am in the OP. It does depict my main role here too, damn new age retarded kids thinking they can put clips in that ak74.

It does not look bad so far, just a bit weaker for a spring and some reviews say the iron sights suck and it often fires 2 bb's at a time.[/QUOTE] Already responded to the other thread but I'll post here. It's a great rifle, more accurate than any of the WELL, UTG or other L96 clones out there. It doesn't have as high of an FPS, but that can be fixed with the 5 minute mod of trimming the airbrake or tossing in a new spring which would take just as long. Both me and my friend owned them and they were insanely good rifles. We never had issues with double feeding, unless you were stupid enough to rack the bolt twice. Iron sights weren't an issue because, well frankly why the hell would you use the iron sights on a sniper rifle? The plastic sights were attached with double sided tape if I remember right, so I never even put mine on. I put the rail and a scope on and that was it. It's a great lightweight rifle with endless possibilities for upgrading. I'd highly recommend it over anything out there.
[QUOTE=Nick99;19148147]hey guis check out my supr kool mod kk [IMG]http://i48.tinypic.com/14m7wix.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] I'm sorry, but the AK47 doesn't take clips, as it has no internal magazine. Just to clear things up if you are confused, a Clip is something used to help load a magazine. For example: This is called a Full Moon Clip, it is often used in revolvers. [img_thumb]http://www.offline.org/~burch/guns/speedloaders/Moon_Clips_01.jpg[/img_thumb] This is the rotary magazine, which revolvers use.

[img_thumb]http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e61/DawgFvr/GP100/MoonClip.jpg[/img_thumb] There are various clips such as the En Bloc, which the M1 Garand uses, or the Stripper Clip, which the Kar 98K uses.

lol the image was a joke. Also I'll be definately looking at the Bar-10. The only thing I see is that it doesn't come with a rail, and those are often in the range of what, $20-$50? + scope. I'd need to save up some money.

As for spare "Mags", there are none, but the mag holds a Hicap M4 mag inside, so that's more than enough for sniping. Though honestly I think a SR25 would be a more effective weapon.
