I heard the Lionclaws events may be banning Polar Stars and the Systema PDW at their events on safety grounds. Seems some guy got a BB through the cheek.

I can see the Polar Stars, but why the Systema? I do remember though how Red Wolf Airsoft sold the new Systema M4 with a wink that it was the best gun to cheat the chrono--which is horse shit.

As I understand the Lionclaws' protocol, a foil sticker is adhered over the seem between the upper and lower receivers to ensure against tampering.

Also, that is such a rubbish thing to do. Beaten up and banned for life is the real response one should get for that.

Ive been trying to fallow the p* as much as possible,as I'm very interested in getting one and the fact that I've yet to hear on one being used in the UK.

There does seem to be a large problem with controlling the fps and sites banning them though.
I don't see there being anymore of a problem with people upping the fps compared to any other quick change rifle, but there does seem to be issues with players and site understanding the power due to the poppet valve and bb weight adding power creep.(cheating the crono).
I see some sites now test with the bbs used and then recalculate into jules.

Its a bit sh*t that players cant be trusted to use these though, and why should they be singled out more than others,this happened to the PTW owners before the p* came along.
In the Uk there seems to be a lot less of a trust issue though. If you do get found to be cheating especially at large games here you can expect to be banned and your name circulated to other sites and forums.

BT, are BBs not prescribed at the chrono near you? That seems a sloppy ship.

Then again, at the professional field not far from me, they only recently started to do that, and half the time the mouth-breather at the station does not even know what weight he has in his hands.

I think the Polar Star can go much higher than even the other systems with quick-change cylinders. And it seems to do it with relative ease. It might be easier to put back down if people start getting suspicious too.

The issue is not that the croon should have .2g bbs to check.
Which they all do in the UK and have struck 350fps or 370fps for full auto, 400/420 for semi auto eag and 500fps for bolt action.

The issue is that due to the design you can open the poppet value which allow more airflow(from what I understand), so the gun may be 350fps with a .2g but add a .3g and the power will rise as the air is still fully propelling the bbs as it leaves the barrel.

I suspect that this is also a problem with gas rifles like tanaka's but gets over looked as they are single shot and not in the masses.

Bitchtits took the words from my mouth, completely agree,

Gas rifles aren't very consistent with power output too unless tapped with a HPA rig or CO2 which may leave some, 'hot' running Tanaka's undetectable.
