MLCS Deployment Bag:






The scary part about this is that it isn’t even full. Continue reading

Tokyo Marui SCAR-H Update

Even though I’ve been a little out of the game, I’m still buying stuff to further suit my tastes.

Once of my latest acquisitions is a set of these:


Yes… that is a set of the now discontinued TangoDown FN SCAR Extended Side Rails (FNS-ESR).


Installation was super simple – this is a photo taken from a quick test fit immediately after ripping open the parcel that they came in.

The Angry Gun Surefire SOCOM Suppressor

After waiting for nearly half a decade someone finally made one, after the release I contacted Angry Gun and grabbed both the 7.62 and 5.56 in FDE.

Since I only just got these suppressors this will only be an overview of them.

While talking to my contact at Angry Gun it turns out that the suppressor straight from angry gun has no markings, while if you order from JKARMY they have markings laser etched on. As of right now only suppressors sold through JKARMY have markings, as they sent theirs out to be processed.

Now onto the suppressor, now the color I can say that it is very close to the WE SCAR H FDE lower. DSC_0473

The latching system has a nice audible click when you turn the ratcheting system, Angry Gun’s system latching system allows for VERY solid QD system.

There is one inaccurate thing I can see with the suppressor is that the prongs on the flash hider are wrong. Thanks to the The_Derpy_Guy on DEVTSIX and some more research, turns out the flash hider is correct for the military 4 prong flash hider.

On the flash hider there is a little notch and one on the inside of the suppressor, you have to align these up to ensure tight fit when you tighten down the ratchet.

Below I have placed the suppressor next to some accessories to assist in comparing the color. Just a small FYI the color of the rail is not FDE but Geissele’s desert dirt color.


All in all the I am VERY happy with this suppressor the only pet peeves I have is that there are no markings and that the prongs on the flash hider is wrong.

M4 Restoration & Conversion

My King Arms Colt M4 has been one of my most trusted AEG primaries over the past three years. Over it’s life I’ve given it different paint jobs with different patterns,  I’ve tossed a variety of internals and external parts on it as needed but sometimes you need to reevaluate an AEGs purpose in your inventory and either refit it or sell it.

It’s been a little while


I went to play airsoft for the first time in months. While I can say that I’m disappointed that the level of play out there has continued to degrade since I last played, at least I now know that I still remember how to run & gun (while still abiding to the best airsoft advice I’ve ever gotten: don’t die). Racked up kills all day with Optix – up until he took an uncontrolled burst of full auto bleeders to the face at close range and we called it quits. Reminder to myself: maybe I should start wearing mesh face protection that everyone else seems to be wearing nowadays.


Highlight from this loadout:

Tokyo Marui Next Gen HK416 “DEVGRU” AEG, near complete upgrades (waiting for a couple of Prometheus parts in the mail)
Externals: HAO SMR for Marui, G&P DBAL-A2, Element M600U/Surefire Z68 direct attached, Element Tangodown vert grip, mystery solar powered micro red dot, BFG Two Point Sling, CTR stock cut for wiring to TMC GPS pouch for 11.1V Lipo
Internals: BTC Specter, “frankentorque” custom motor, mix of Prometheus/Magic Box/Army compression and drivetrain upgrade parts, mystery spring for equivalent muzzle velocity to M120, Prometheus ASH 6.05 285mm, A Plus old-gen Bucking & Modify Flat Nub

And may I say that it performed wonderfully today, even on hop-up set a number of clicks below a relatively flat trajectory because I forgot to set it this morning – and this is before the whole build is even completely done. I might actually be onto something for PTW like performance (without the expense to keep it running) here. The “recoil” mechanism’s novelty has long since worn off – but the performance of a modded Next Gen still puts a smile on my face.

Upgrades -> Tokyo Marui Glock 17

My Glock 17 has operated almost perfectly since I initially received it close to two years ago. Out of the box, you can’t beat the performance of a TM Glock. But despite this initial perfection, there’s always that voice in the back of your head telling you it can perform better.

So onto what I’ve done to push performance and durability on my TM Glock 17.

VFC SCAR + V2 Two-Piece Hop Unit = Win

The fix for all your VFC hop-related issues.

(Update July 28th, 2015: I took the SCAR-L with above Guarder two-piece hop up and it functioned flawlessly in about two midcaps’ worth of testing on the field in both semi and full-auto. Consistency was solid and I was actually quite impressed with the range, although this could be attributed to the Maple Leaf 70 degree bucking and tightbore as well. Either way, it worked flawlessly, and seems so far to be an effective fix.)

Perhaps against my better judgement, I accepted a VFC SCAR-L in a trade. I absolutely love the SCAR platform for its handling and aesthetics, but completely abhor VFC’s SCAR for a single reason – the terrible, terrible, terrible hop unit design. It is made of poor quality plastic (leading to sheared hop adjustment wheels), it’s a bit too tight in diameter and thus only reliably accepts VFC hop rubbers, the hop up arm is shorter than standard and thus aftermarket hop nubs/rubbers aren’t nearly as effective in it, and worst of all, it is proprietary. Or so I thought.

Some internet sleuthing revealed that old-school two piece V2 M4 hop up units have been tried and tested in the VFC SCAR with good results. I’m kind of angry at myself for not thinking of it sooner – two piece hop units, like the VFC SCAR hop, are open ended at the bottom, allowing for the lower receiver to swing out during disassembly. Could it work? Could this be the answer to all my VFC SCAR-related problems, and make a solid, reliable platform out of a piece of junk?

The answer so far is: Yes. Read more after the break.
