I'm pretty impressed that the Star L1A1 (that's an airsoft SLR since several people asked me when I mentioned it in a status update on Facebook...) I ordered from Combat South on Friday was delivered today. Rather less so that Parcelforce saw fit to leave the package on my doorstep! WTF?!
Ah well, guess I can give it a tryout at Gary's airsoft day on Saturday. And I do have the brown UNIT beret and a 1960 pattern smock... ;-)
First impressions: very nice. Solid piece of kit, very long so definitely not a CQB gun. Fired off a handful of BBs from it - speed seems variable but ranging from 359-412fps. Good thing I also picked up a couple of 1J springs then...
On another note, I am rather getting to enjoy the Military History Channel.
