Saddest eBay purchase ever?

Fire select
I have just bought a pack of 10 countersunk M5 x 30 bolts on eBay? Why? Because the bolt that joins the two side rails on my P90 is slightly bent (from the same accident which knackered one of the side rails) and all the local hardware stores only have 25mm or 40mm countersunk bolts. I know, I've spent the afternoon driving round them...

That said, I think I have some ideas from going round them for how to contstruct myself a rack for my airsofts. Problem is no one in the UK seems to sell gun racks anymore - why should they? After all, anyone who now owns a real gun has to have them in a steel cabinet...

Out of curiosity, do you happen to know where I can buy a spare small 20mm rail from? The one I thought I saw on ebay was actually an adaptor for a smaller rail mount. Obviously after one to put on my new p90 somehow..

Lengths of rail are commonly sold by pretty much any major airsoft retailer but tend to be very weapon specific in terms of mountings. However, I thought you got a triple rail version? Or did you go for the red dot version and are now looking to mount a second side rail on it?

I already got a cheap triple rail one, so I went for the red dot version instead and looking to mount a second side rail on it.
Cant decide to show it off with a laser sight or torch on it, and obviously the default version of the gun only has one rail so have to choose which one at the moment..
Mind you, I did think about trying to cut one off my cheap p90 and putting some velcro on it and on new p90, then attaching the extra rail by velcro.

Unfortunatly I dont know of any major (or minor even) airsoft retailers anywhere around here which is why ive always had to get anything online.

Hmm... there's some guys I know (Tim Atkinson et al) who have red dot P90s with twin side rails - I know they had them modified - must ask where/how...

you'd have thought if there was one you could buy, would have been a simple attach to gun and go thing!

I've had a last-minute, beat-the-VCR-bill-deadline splurge. Got me a MP7A1 for CQB, and have a VSR-10 G-Spec on the way. w00t

Oh yes? Who from? Am currently tempted by one of WW2 Airsoft's cheap Cyma Kalashnikovs...

The MP7 is a TM model from ZeroOne. I've got to charge & test it yet, but I'm impressed with the solid build quality.
The VSR is also a TM, and that's on it's way from Redwolf.
