Keep strictly real steel gun related laws and politics to >>>/k/ and >>>/pol/, faghead. Leave the gun and gear porn.

If you have a useful guide or want to rework one for the OP, post it and someone will add it to the next one.

what constitutes an lmg? At many fields you must have one to use full auto but items like above are basically a m4, where does the line lay?

enter the cybergun featherweight, its an m249 but with m4 internals and weighs ~8lbs loaded. It certainly isn't too heavy but its still a machine gun. not to counter you point but i just want to illustrate how thin the line can be
>>
>>39764

>>39758
((fagsimwest))) dictates an issued lmg
but rpks are allowed, so by spirit I think the faggy ares guns and that Marine HK open bolt AR should technically count
but they recently split it into LMG and GPMG classes which "sorta" makes sense
personally Id put SMG and LMG in a similar class range so people with snowflake builds like an MG36 with drum mag and a bipod arent butthurt with similar joule cap and ROE like no full auto under 20 feet or near blind corners or something

There is no single definition. The place where I go to defines them by real-world application, so an M4 with a drum doesn't count, even tough it's equal in function to one.

An actual Belt fed weapon or an RPK. for casual shit G&Gs and Krytacs are fine. For milsims it at least had to be used by a real military in that role.

I heard that on big cities it's pretty nice, they have 2-3 fields.
But I live in the middle of fucking nowhere, 80k people city. Only way to play is joining the city's group, all good guys. Closest fields is 3h away, so we mostly play on woods the owner let us. Group next city over got city happ to let them play on a big carnival area, when it's empty. I played there a couple of times, lots of fun.
The thing is, everything is fucking expensive, compared to income. Nowadays, the cheapest aeg available (plastic cyma m4) costs 1200 huebucks. G&G are going for 2000+. Minimum wage is about 1000 huebucks/month.
On the field itself, everybody runs M4s, cheaper guns, parts, and rail space. I have a JG AUG, only one I've seen so far, in my 5+ years playing.
tl;dr - compared to the US or europe, 3/10, expensive, but still fun.

>>
>>40344
Those prices are bad, and that's speaking as a third worlder from potato land. Around here the minimum wage is also just above 2000, but a basic cyma 028 is typically below 400

Any legal restrictions over there? Around here nobody really cares, no red flashiders, no nothing, just have to below the 1,7 joule limit for toys.

Until 2010 at least, airsoft had to be registered like a real gun, and all of the paperwork related made it prohibitely expensive. But the government started deregulating them a while back, so now all you need is the receipt and the orange tip. there were talks about not needing an importing license to import guns, don't know what happened to that. Last round was deregulating scopes and attachments, so we can at least import those now.

Get one of those "swordfish" mp5s from evike. They seem to always be on sale too. Avoid the mp5k unless you are doing cqb in a broom closet, and don't by the spendy umarex/vfc mp5s. They have shit tier internals.
The p90 is a meme with terribad mags and hard to source pouches.

It's "Stolen Valor" and I agree. I don't care if someone playing airsoft is running around in the cammies I was issued 16 years ago, an old Vietnam field jacket or a T-Shirt with some weird anime titty girl on it so long as he isn't being an ass to me or mine, ya know?

People always say sniping in airsoft is boring as hell, but what about running a spring sniper and a small AEG like an MP5 or something with both on slings? It seems like it'd be fun to have an AEG to primary but then you could switch over to the rifle to pick people off when you get a chance.
>>
>>41390
After a while you realize you can just build an MP5 with the same ballistic properties.
>>
>>41395
Ah yes, because every field will let you use a 450 fps full/semi auto MP5
>>
>>41404
Mine will, no full auto because that’s only for lmg’s. The other field doesn’t chrono at all and the indoor place has 330 limit
>>
>>40898
where the fuck do I get one?
>>
>>41390
If that's what you want to do, then go for it. A lot of advice is for people who can't afford to buy multiple guns, so they need to maximize their spending dollaroos. But if you can afford to buy a sniper and an SMG and then change your mind about your entire loadout without a care, then that's fine too.
>>
>>41430
I like the idea of gradually building one type of each main gun, so I have plenty of loaners and I can also vary my loadout when I play. It's not something I want to do all at once, just gradually over time as I get waves of disposable income and find good deals on things.

I do understand that's not typical though
>>
>>41072

Is the ASG Dan Wesson 8" fun for just plinking and not shooting actual people? My country has a 1 joule limit but this gun seems to get around that by coming with low powered shells but the same store in my country also sells the high powered shells with a warning that they go beyond 1 joule, which seems perfect for my needs.
The only other gun I would want is a ww2 bolt action with real wood and shell ejecting but they seem to be so low power compared to a much cheaper metal revolver.
>>
>>41448
I think it's more common than you think. I usually bring 3-4 guns to the field. 1) to change playstyle if I feel like it, and 2) in case something breaks (friends included). It sucks ass to sit out a game to troubleshoot something. I'd rather grab another gun and play, then do all the repairs at home where I'm not paying for the privilege of attending.

So pretend you get the chance to build out your own field. Its in a semi wooded area where you can clear out underbrush and small trees. What type of structures would you build? What are your favorite site features from places you have played? Not every day I get the chance to help build my dream field and want as much inspiration as I can get. If doing anything crazy it will have to come out of my pocket so don't just say connex castle or some shit (though if I had the money I would do it). Total area is about 4 acres.
>>
>>41390
Mp5 is not small enough unless you go with a mp5k from experience. I would suggest one of the gas mp7 or mp9s. Or run a full auto glock as a sidearm.
>>
>>41547
Have two story buildings with windows...any way you can. And create buildings that have good lines of sites to those windows to counter them

See if you can get an old junkyard car and throw it in the middle of the field like a crash and cover it with shruberry

Is there any sort of themes you want to go with in general? Every map kind of had it's schtick that makes people fill in the blanks on what happened...even if it's not totally intentional
>>
>>41547
conex boxes used for buildings, they are around 2-4k and allow you to have a second story by just putting stairs on it. Also what >>41652 said, try to get junked cars, I would remove/break the windows first however as they can provide a hazard. Also if you can try to get the quality of all cover upgraded to well built plywood covers (not osb) and try to but a ply covering on all pallets (if your feild is built like that)
>>
>>41547
>>41661
also try to do trenches if possible they can be fun, there is a place in VA called newkent with them and they are great, as for the expense I still recommend a conex but you could get a short 20ft one as they are cheaper. And remember you dont need 100 conexes you can just get one or two to make it work. Good luck and Godspeed anon
>>
>>41547
I hate randomly placed pallets and barrels for the sake of cover. I also hate fields so cluttered with crap that it's nothing but narrow corridors and alleys. I guess I'm basically a "less is more" kinda person.

But if you're asking about dream field, de_dust.

Looks like I'm starting an airsoft accessories business, boys. Have a computer controlled cnc machine, 5 commercial 3D printers and a really good connection to a Chinese knock-off optics factory thats started sending samples over.

Gonna try and start making uppers, lowers and handguards once we get aluminum casting to be as strong as we want (hint: reclaim old autoparts, not cans, that shit never works).

What else should we consider moving in to in the coming months?

I wanted some input. Before i stopped playing airsoft, i was planning on doing a night rig. My plan was to do a work around for my local fields rules for Night games. If you run a AEG at night you must either have a Tracer Unit, or flashlight while shooting. To simulate muzzle flash.
If you ran a gas set up, you did not have to follow this rule. my friend would run a gas shot gun and absolutely destroy. he also liked to do this set up because at the end of the day your pretty tired of running around completely decked out.
Would you run a Gas Pistol set up with a SBR conversion, 4x gas mags, speed loader, and green gas on a battle belt?
I think it could be a pretty good set up for night games.

Has anyone done any DIY projects for airsoft? Today I painted my gear bag black, threw some Scotchgard waterproofing on it and sewed a patch to the side.

I was curious if anyone has suggestions for making a bb "trap". I'd like to shoot my gun indoors but I don't want to fuck up the drywall/paint or have bb's laying everwhere

Making a BB trap is pretty easy. Take some 2x4 and make a rectangular cuboid, you will then need an old towel or blanket. Staple/nail/screw towel to the top of the front of the cubiod and the bottom in the back so it is sloping down. You can cover the sides in thick cardboard, and staple or put targets in front of it. The towel will catch BBs and defect them down.

>Some of the people you meet at airsoft events really make you question your choice in pastimes. Unfortunately, that has been the case for a lot of my hobbies. Don't even fucking get me riled up about Magic The Gathering. Boy, do I love that game but I loathe 90% of the people that show up to friday night magic. I stopped going after two or three visits at a couple different shops. I refuse to be around people who ignore basic etiquette, don't shower, get hostile over the tiniest things... If you really want some cringe check out stories on reddits of being a girl in that scene. It's harrowing.

Fortunately airsoft is... better. Still find some of these types though. I think I just have to take up a rich man's sport, like becoming an equestrian or something idfk.

The IAR isn't issued with drum magazines. If you took it in with midcaps, you could probably get the 1500rnd initial issue, but you wouldn't be permitted to use a drum magazine with it. This is primarily because IARs look exactly like regular HK416s most of the time and are just argument starters. The Ares Shrike isn't issued by any existing military force and is therefore not permitted, just like you wouldn't be able to use an AUG or a FAMAS unless you were doing a NATO impression that uses either of those weapons. On the other hand, RPKs are issued with drums and are distinct from other AK variants in look and silhouette. Most people who run them use midcaps anyway.

The LMG/MMG split wasn't recent either. It's been in the rulebook for for more than five years.

>>43347
You were on NATO weren't you? There are 4channers that do militia and RUSFOR impressions who don't take shit too seriously and have a good time. Like a lot of these sorts of things, it's as much who you're with as what you're doing.

Yeah, we were NATO. We wanted guerilla ont he 2nd, even got the tickets for it but they swapped us since there were 3 of us and they wanted those spots to go to some other guys that were friends with someone in the cadre for guer. I could see MSW being fun if the people would stop trying to LARP big Army and line-Marines and would just go a bit more "Panty Raid at Delta Phi".

That said, I've heard Desert Fox events are better and there's rumor they might run one nearby in the fall.

I cannot emphasize this enough: GO MILITIA/RUSFOR. I distinctly remember sneaking around the line the first night at Caspian Breakout and hearing an unidentified unit talking to each other. It sounded so unlike any way I've ever heard people talk on RUSFOR, we knew immediately it was NATO, and then we ambushed the shit out of them. NATO gets filled to the brim by weird fetishists who talk like military robots. RUSFOR and Militia is also filled with weird LARPers (I'm definitely one of them), but it's definitely a lot more light-hearted and self-aware.

If you absolutely must stick to NATO though, check out TF Keg. They're 10th mountain impressionists, and they're all super chill too. Desert Fox events are just your typical 3-day pick-up game "milsim" experience but with a neat app. Plenty well produced, but nothing new.
>>
>>43347
I'm guessing you're actual military. I've heard this complaint a lot from other dudes that are/were and I feel ya, but I would suggest going again and having the mindset that you're trying to help younger guys learn and appreciate the knowledge we have and providing them with some small manner of mentorship. It can be very fulfilling that way
>>
>>43617
Militia sounds fun, I wouldn't do RUS because all the shit I have is M4s and desert camo or kryptek highlander. But throwing on some jeans, a safari shirt and running around with my MP5K or beater M4 and shouting in weird accents could be fun.

A lot of NATO bailed on Saratov 5, but Keg stuck through the whole thing. I know because someone from a RUSFOR group I'm familiar with was running keg, and even NATO, he wouldn't hear the end of it if he quit out early.

Idk what it is, but whatever is the US camo at the time you get the biggest whimps. Until recently I always ran as either flecktarn or m81 at events. Last one I went to I was multicam because team is switching to it. We had 1/2 the team sitting in base getting their shit shoved in during the first evo. We had only been playing for an hour or so. Even back at AMS Iron Horse 2 I remember it was raining day 2 and 1/2 of tan didn't show up.

Nah this was small event in FL. Everyone was at base because they were out shape and couldn't deal with heat.

Maybe airsoft events like these should put a list of excercises people should try to do before the event so players can figure out how much gear is too much for them.
I've seen a few people heatcas out of games, and its usually fatties with way too much gear on them.

I am attracted by the idea of being in the army, and the associated perception of strength and respect that goes with it.

BDU's aren't actually good. People wear modern shit because it's unironically far better, as clothing made 50 years later should be. You'll never see anyone in the south wearing anything that doesn't have crotch vents in the summer if they have any money to throw at a kit. BDUs are heavy, not that durable, and as traditionally patterned clothes they're not as easy to move around in. Period kit is fragile and costs a decent bit to get, and most reproduction gear is visibly wrong.

It seriously depends on the brand and your budget. Anything gayshop branded, ignore completely. ANA is basically Emershit-tier, and SSO isn't all that much better for the price either. If you're buying from gayshop, Voin or SRVV are the two good options.

The best weight limits I had seen professionally are as follows

45lbs > Extremely in shape and can hike over 10 miles on a reasonable incline without being completely winded, for carrying gear that you will not be running in as it will fuck up your joints/back

40 lbs > Very good shape, able to run a 5k without having to stop, not for running more than 15 steps at a time

25lbs > In good shape, can jog 3 miles without pain or stoppage. If you're comfortable here, you can run in this gear at most fitness levels without worrying about hurting too much the next day

20lbs > ideal weight for most fitness levels where you'll be able to walk long distances and run short ones (think 20-25 yards) without greatly effecting overall stamina. Essentially the most you ever want to put on yourself in a game that lasts under 2 hours

15lbs > Assuming your mile time is over 9 minutes, this is your max until you can work up the cardio to get it to a reasonable time. Cardio greatly effects all your physical abilities and it's a good idea that if you're limited to this weight, that you make sure you have atleast 2 liters of water in that kit for a game with any reasonable length of time required.

All these weights include your gun and boots. Heavy boots are often a much bigger problem for people trying to maneuver than the weight of their pack or weapon.

As far as exercises to get ready, I'd say jogging 2+ miles a day or biking for more than 10 miles is a good call for cardio. Pull ups, crunches and burpees (with a pack on the stronger you get) are a good call. And personally I HIGHLY recommend yoga for helping add to cardio and strength over time without beating yourself up too much. Drink plenty of water, don't go too hard in to gatorade because the sodium levels are very high and you'll get the worst headaches and lethargy when you've had too much.

Is this such a huge issue now? I am just starting to really get back into everything. Went to first event in years at end of last month and didn't really have any issues with hit calling. Back in the day there were no public fields in FL so you had to know a team or group that had access to private land to really play. If you fucked up and got kicked out of your local scene you were SOL for the most part so we never had any major issues.

I bought one of those RX sport goggles for bouldering and they're a lot more flush that regular glasses so I can wear them under most goggles.

For glasses in general, the Pyramex Capstone seems to have the ability for both my regular specs and the sport goggles. This is made even easier since the strap has a clip so setting it on my face, locking, then tightening is easier. Pyramex also as shooting glasses that just fit over my glasses as well, but the name escapes me right now.

For outdoors I have been alternating between the TM ones with the fan and Rothco OTG. However lately I have been using the Pyramex shooting goggles since they're easier and the field has allowed them.

Recently got myself a pair of the Valken VSMs, and they're somewhere between the Rothco OTG and Pyramex in terms of profile, however, I find them juuust wide enough for my full sized glasses, so ymmv. Much like the Pyramex Capstone, they have a strap with a clip.

Prior to gaming, I treat everything with some sorta anti-fog, even the TM. The longer the game though the accumulation of sweat on the lenses seem to function like a natural anti-fog.

Sticking to Russian stuff, the UF Pro, UR Tactical, Voins and Crye-clones are all fantastic and have tons of vents. Of course wearing a wife beater and short shorts under a Sumrak is hard to beat.

LMGs in my opinion should typically be replicating a real-world example of a gun that serves the role in question, not entirely a fan of the kinds of people who show up with a lightweight AR, standard AK, etc. that they slapped a drum or casket in and went "oh this is an LMG"; things like the M27 IAR and MCR for ARs or the RPK for AKs would be the minimum in my opinion
Might be able to make an exception for some replicas of full-length .308 rifles that are built for the role, though, my issues are primarily with people that assume a very large magazine and literally nothing else makes it an LMG/MMG so they just bring in a shorty AR/AK and slap a big mag in it

pants and a shirt, mags in pockets maybe a dump pouch on your belt.

Cheap Old Navy fitness wear and a breathable Hawaiian shirt. I run everything else on a belt and wear a small vest that covers only my chest cuz I don't like how getting shot in the nipples feels.

It was good at the time but it's heavy and breathes poorly compared to modern options. Ain't even got ballsack vents.

There is a solution for this.

Bro, 4chan groups - if they even associate with 4chan anymore - go regular RUSFOR these days and have their hands full with that. Chances are if you go militia you'll either end up with MSW newbies who are there to LARP, or vets who want a change of pace from their usual group. Yeah, 4chan has put out a militia platoon before, but the number of randos in that group is was fairly small, the rest getting put into a separate platoon. Chances are if you have any meaningful interaction with the openly 4chan shitters, it's because you're seeking it out.

Just go militia. It's not that serious. You'll have F U N. Faget.

A simulation of a simulation...I don't really see the point as most people want airsoft to be more realistic anyways, unlike paintball. But if you want airsoft anyways the death system would be a bit weird but one thing I would expect is lots and lots and lots of bb spam outdoors and just speedsoft indoor maps, no real reason to roleplay. Also customization had better be amazing

Haven't gone to a field in a while, and because of that my TM px4's magazine seals are completely fucked and dont hold gas at all.. is it worth trying to fix this or should I just get new mags. The mags are a couple years old.
>>
>>46612
Shit like this makes me appreciate the insane degree to which I an abuse and neglect actual firearms to no consequence. My AK has literally not been cleaned in 10 years and thousands of rounds. Airsoft still fun even if the gear's kinda shite.

Bro, doesn't Georgia, the Carolinas, and Florida have like some of the most famous outdoor fields in the East Coast?
>>
>>46612
I don't know about your mags, but mine are $40-50 each, so yeah, I would fix them. After the usual attempts like teflon tape and such, I wound up using RTV sealant, and that seemed to hold the gas. I assume you mean the bottom part of the chamber and not the part that goes into the pistol.

Found the issus. The o-ring is a complete goner on the worst one. The other two work now that I used copious amounts of silicone oil on the o rings. Thanks for the help everyone I saved like 65 dollars this way

Which proper gearbox is the smallest size to work with, and has the most compatible parts?
P90 (version 6), or M249 (idk version name)?

Working on a DIY project and need some space. M14 (version 7) gearbox seems okay, but it might be too long for the compartment I'm putting it in.

I guess my local walmarts have stopped selling green gas because airsoft are real guns.

Doesn't walmart also sell real guns

They use to, but after sandy vag they started virtue signing and most pulled their gun stores. Dicks Sporting goods did the same thing.
>>
>>46727
They have the best website IMHO. Everyone else seems a decade behind in interwebbing.

>>46807
They still sell propane, tho. Just hold your nose.
>>
>>46727
Yeah

>>46755

They were always bad at getting shit out. I'm in Arizona and that shit still can take a week. The trick is just do 3 day shipping or better and they put your order at the front of the line
>>

And they still sell daisy bb guns, and pellet guns, but pulled airsoft for some reason.

I really don't know if we need to be making a new thread the moment this one burns anymore. /xs/ is moving much slower now that the board isn't listed in the announcements bar any longer too.

When you do make the thread though, I did completely rewrite the newfag pastebin to be a bit less spergy and a bit better organized, while still providing the same information. If anyone can think of useful information to add, speak up.

thanks ill use it, as for the new thread I think making one after it hits 300 is needed so we can keep /asg/ on the first page
>>
>>46889
sounds good to me. don't wanna be a gatekeeper, and getting green gas from walmart seems really easy, but provided the people who want to airsoft can still get airsoft stuff easily thats fine. the biggest risk to airsoft is blowback from someone being killed cause they had an airsoft gun. just imo

when making last and this thread I purposely deleted it from the copy pasta as discord, by its nature is full of faggots and degenerates, they aren't called discord trannies for nothing. Just yesterday I joined an airsoft discord server and within minutes I had found at least 1 furry 1 femboy and the "boyfriend' of said femboy.

On another note, with the considerations of the thread i will be waiting until tomorrow until posting a new thread for we have not yet hit the autosage territory yet and the wishes of others.

Should make a thread inviting everyone in, and use it to fish for fags to make it easier to black list them.

thats not how 4chan works you can do it to stop name and tripfags but not individual posters, might be useful to get peoples gear and spot them in other posts and in real life but I doubt its effectiveness

What am I missing here? Is it that people just want to larp with ARs?
>>
>>43127
A fair lot. I'm working on converting a Soviet PNV-57E night vision unit for stand-alone use (while airshit-proofing); a PMK-3 gas mask to NATO-spec (while also airshit-proofing), tailoring a Philippine SAF fatigue uniform to be not-shitty, and recently made myself a custom Woodland combat shirt.

I never really considered custom gear much of a hassle. You just get the supplies you need to work; and if you can't do something yourself you just find someone who takes money for it.

AR/AK parts and magazine availability (for those platforms specifically, of course), some roles require guns of a certain variety to meet them (ex. DMRs, LMGs, MMGs), their choice might better fit their equipment (which would be the LARP bit, I suppose), and some people just like running around in the field with something they personally prefer from an aesthetic and/or handling standpoint over something like a short-barrelled subgun
I'd safely say those are the first things to come to mind, though they might not be the only ones and there are probably important details I missed
Personally have an externally-stock 14.5" King Arms M4A1 as a primary at the moment, because I like the way it looks compared to something like a PDW-built AR; I can see the practical appeal of having something short and light to run around with, though, which is why an MP5SD variant is on my list of guns I want to get
>>
>>47639
I get the parts thing, but this whole AR being meta thing is pretty boring.
There so much cool shit to pick from and try which is seems like such an appealing prospect but every one just wants to run around with basic bitch ARs.

On a side note I picked up a King Arms P90 elite that has that upgraded nylon fiber body. Waiting for my C-More red dot and a new trigger & warfet.
Thinking about picking up the acetech brighter c too. should be fun.
>>
>>47615
Because 9mm ARs have the benefits of SMGs and ARs (part interchangeability)

But I do wish there was a bigger non AR market, especially for WW2 guns
>>
>>47615
Because I hate the idea of a 50ft MED submachine gun.
I have a full size AK-74M for a field gun and I'm putting together a CQB rated AKS-74U for, well, CQB. Mostly so I don't have to spend another $90 for a rack of midcaps.
>>
>>47647
How much does barrel length actually effect range though?
Everything that ive read says bb weight, hop, and barrel diameter is what your after.
>>
>>47652
>How much does barrel length actually effect range though?
It don't. Compression, spring power, and your hop do.

Why is everyone mad at the SSG1? People are saying its not fare, but its kinda cheap and literally anyone can buy one, yet some fields are banning this gun specifically.
>>
>>47656
Because fuck speedsofters.
>>
>>47656
What makes it not fair?
>>
>>47656
Airsoft, unlike paintball (witch the SSG1 very much resembles) has its roots in some amount of realism. Almost every airsoft gun out there is strictly based on something that is real, unlike the SSG1. Very few non real airsoft guns exist with only a few coming to my mind, such as that one weird space m4 the halo ma5 and a few movie prop guns. Further more it is literally called the speedsoft gun and speedsofters are not particularly the most liked group for notable reasons such as many joule creeping, having retardedly high rps like 50-60 to get around full auto rules by just spamming the triger to effectively reach 25-30 rps in semi, and being just all-around dickbags. That's not to say that they exclusively do this, shitbags exist elsewhere, but the reputation doesn't come from nowhere.

>>47656
This abomination? Why wouldn't you just go play paintball instead?
>>
>>47656
Most people simply think it's a disgusting paintball-looking gun, amongst other things; I think that it's an overpriced, poor-quality gun made by a company that's (to my knowledge) way behind on internal quality standards, with a trigger banned at most fields with sense for being used to dodge full-auto bans/restrictions to magdump people (and knowing the crowd it's appealing to, that was 100% put on there so that it would be readily available when it's inevitably given a drop-in high-ROF gearbox or HPA engine); the fact that it resembles a paintball marker and has a buffer-tube drop stock is honestly the least of my concerns
I don't doubt that someone could try to spin it as a sci-fi gun of some sort if they wanted to mess around with the externals, but frankly as it currently stands it's somewhat unappealing in appearance, the stock internals aren't worth the money and above all else it screams "but ref it's not full-auto because I'm simply slapping the mouse-click trigger 30+ times a second with three fingers so I can magdump that guy" with the blade trigger

If I had to guess, he's most likely referring to the complaints about the blade trigger (pictured) that comes stock on the non-USR gun and is often used in tandem with HPA engines or DSG builds that have mouseclick triggers to circumvent full-auto rules by making it possible to relentlessly trigger-spam with it at full-auto rates of fire while still being on semi-auto; a lot of fields have banned them for that exact reason
And before someone calls me on it, yes, I know that I forgot the USR version of the gun with a standard trigger exists in that first post; my complaint about the standard version and its internal quality for the price still stands

new thread tomorrow. Impressive the thread lasted this long

also new copy pasta next topic will be speedsoft

Keep strictly real steel gun related laws and politics to >>>/k/ and >>>/pol/. Leave the gun and gear porn.

If you have a useful guide or want to rework one for the OP, post it and someone will add it to the next one.
