I'm looking for a nice entry level gun hopefully in the under $200 range.

Spot on for the Cyma ak rifles.
Not sure about buying Nihm battery instead of Lipo but then again I ruined a bunch by being a noob and not knowing you had to charge/drain them to a certain voltage when storing them after playing.

how good are the shitty $30 amazon special red dots?

also are 3x/4x optics worthwhile for outdoor play?

>>6387
What about flash mags? I've heard good things about Lonex ones
>>
>>6691
4x Is a little much for airosoft desu. I say that as someone with a 4x on his airshit.

As far as the $30 red dots go, ya. They work. And if it gets shot out, at least it didn't cost you much.

>>6694
I had one. Youre really not missing much. Its just a high cap you can wind faster.
>>
>>6691
stay away from fake holo sights, they all suck
stick to aimpoint repros

>>6694
no, they still suck, they rattle like hell and you won't reload your gun nearly as often. mag change is love, mag change is life.
>>
>>6387
Sorry, but I'm too busy racking up kills on the front line to reload. I know small brain (and small penis) speedsofters can't remember to crank their high caps, but it's okay because they're usually the first ones to get lit up so in the end it doesn't matter what mag they use.
>>
>>6691
4x optics are generally speaking useless, unless you use them like an Occluded Eye Gunsight. There are niche uses for identifying friend from foe though. You can definitely use them for that. I'd either bring a small set of binoculars or a magnifier and a red dot.
>>
>>6404
Why didn't you call them first?

I think airsoft needs some kind of semi official ranking system. I've been playing since 2011, and I'm sick of new people and little kids with no experience just blowing me off when I give them instructions or try to have them cover a location.

Making a new newbie purchase guide since the current one is so old. Recomending new players to stick with AR and AK AEGs due to parts and shit. Let me know if there are any decent brands im missing. Also don't know if I should do a purchase guide for goggles/gear/batteries.

>>
>>6924
>g&p
They have pretty good externals, but their stock motors are trash. Their gears a kinda lackluster too.
>>
>>6928
They are. They were a meme on /asp/ way back in the day. Watching these newfriends get baited so easily by it is kind of amusing.
>>
>>6931
Thats why I said to stay away from the i5 line of gearboxes. That marked exactly when G&P started skimping on internals. You can still find older G&Ps for sale with their old internals which are solid but nothing to write home about.
>>
>>6924
That's just a brand list that'll get outdated eventually anyway. The newbie pastebin is more about what to prioritize and research on your own than what to buy, and it's still accurate: steel CYMA AKs are still the best bang-for-your-buck AEGs on the market.

Also,
>Krytac
>Good
>>
>>6947
The newbie pastebin currently recommends combat machines, CYMA MP5s, JG G36 & AUG, and CYMA AKs of which today only a single item on that list is worth it.
>>
>>6935
Back in the good old days when traps, skeletons with scoped lmgs in black multicam from Germany ran the general.
>>
>>6924
You ignored Cyma Blue Line, which is amazing value for money.
Also, G&G is usually proprietary in almost all parts, especially the M14. So no tuning, and the Hop is better in TM M14s too.

furthermore, I'd add an LMG tier for people that want to do that:
Don't. You read this guide which means you don't know what you're doing - but LMGs need you to know what rhey are doing because they break.

Sniper rifles:
Don't.

Back up weapons:
Check your local fields if they require you to bring one. If you're in mainland europe, they probably will.
Your options are A) a finicky GBB or b) a retard proof AEP.
Since you're new, go with the AEP with a LiPo-Mod.

Holsters for your sidearm:

retard tier:
no holster. Almost tied with a drop leg. Almost.

trash tier:
Drop leg. They suck. They impede your leg movement and the gun bounces around in the cheap variable size ones. Stay away.

acceptable tier:
holster on belt or side of chest rig/plate carrier. you won't notice the pistol on your body at all, but the draw is shitty.

good tier:
midride holster. The pistol sits just low enough to draw comfortably while being suspended from your belt, not your leg.

yes but actually no tier:
holster in front of your chest. easy to draw, but you can't go prone. Don't do this.

Never really encountered the blue line before, is that another name for their sport line? For G&G I only recommended their top tech series which is just EBB with standard parts. Ill also add the Sniper and LMG don'ts like the current pastebin has
>>
>>6964
>Back up weapons:
>Check your local fields if they require you to bring one.
???

Oh you mean sidearms.
>>
>>6953
Combat machines are legit starters, the newest gen even moreso. There's a reason fields keep them as rentals, you know. JG Augs are still viable too, they're just licensed by ASG now, but they still show up if you do a brand search on evike. Heck, all of that is still relevant from a pure newbie perspective, just less available now due to licensing. There hasn't been a whole lot of entries into the low end market in the last seven years.

The only thing really out of date about the paste is as >>6654 mentioned with lipos. They've become far more viable with the rise of their use in other battery operated hobbies like droning, and that could use an update.
>>
>>6972
There is almost no reason to recommend a combat machine when there are other sportline models that are better at a cheaper or equivalent cost. Not to mention there are combat machines pushing up to and past $250 for a polymer body M4. There are companies offering proline models with full metal externals, rails, and high end mosfets for the same or cheaper.

I know this will trigger you, but if you're not playing airsoft like BF3/4, then you aren't playing it properly. The worst players are the milsim tryhards who always love to flex their "real acog" or whatever bullshit. That and they are usually not good players who get dabbed on by speedsofters.

they tend to be called "CYMA [model] BLUE" and are distinguished by using only blue plastic internals. Metal gears, obviously, but everything plastic is blue.

Never went to the indoor one, but I went to the outdoor one they built on that old military golf course. Was a lot of fun, and I was bummed to hear they went under when I got back from college. Guys I played with said the indoor one went to shit when HPA exploded and they never set ROF restrictions and didn't know how to crono properly for joule creep. I am just getting back into it all and waiting for my RX inserts to come back for my ESS Crossbows. I'll probably be at the mini milsim Wasteland Ops is hosting at the end of April. Goal for this year is to make it to OP Blacksite in AL by American Milsim and to the OP Third Coast Airsoft is hosting at the Guardian Centers they just announced.

If you are ok with a polymer body / reinforced nylon there are a bunch of sportline models in that price range. Also for the one you picked out if you spend $215 you can grab one that is in stock with a rail (pic related). Besides that there are the following in stock:

>Gen 2 Combat Machines on a crap load of websites

Depends on how much you want to spend. For light use I have seen people run condors for years. If you want something a bit more durable without the price tag you could go for a LBX at around $150. Above that you are just looking at getting a legit plate carrier.
>>
>>7934
for $150 you could get a used shellback tactical banshee or a brand new gucci brand chest rig. for $30 more you could get picrel.
or you could go under $60 and get a pig brig and a couple pouches.

CYMA brand guns would be good for new players, they're cheap but reliable enough that the gearbox should be steady.

they're actually interchangeable. if it's not a horrible freak show abomination to HPA, I might get the VAL kit for mine and hot swap between the two depending on what I want to do. That said, exclusively run yours with a foregrip if you have the railed barrel. I'm telling you that handguard is fucking F L I M S Y. and when tightening the suppressor back on after removal, it can tighten to the point that there's zero wobble.

high caps always rattle when in use. Same goes for flash mags. I understand you like them, but virtually no one else does. That's why you're not going to have a lot of people pipe up about them outside of speedsofters. And even those prefer midcaps because the allow for faster ROF over time compared to highcaps.

The main issue I dislike about these things is constantly turning the wheel at the bottom to make sure the spring has enough pressure for 20 BBs.
With a midcap, you have 140BBs ( or even 200) on tap. No wheels to turn, no rattling after you've shot a few rounds, just shoot until it stops then swap mags and keep shooting. No keeping up with the ROF of your gun on a high cap wheel either, just keep pulling the trigger until empty, drop mag, new one in, keep going. It honestly beats the high cap in anything but value per bb held. If you need to carry a ridiculous amount of BBs in very few mags, that's where the high cap shines. If you can't have LBE for some reason -> highcap.

Otherwise, always midcap.

If you really don't like it, explain to her that blue is a terrible camouflage and she will be easier to spot and shoot.
replace kamysh with woodland.
Show her some basic videos about camouflage, especially the one from the SEAL experience. make her understand that cold blooded killers wear the correct camouflage and facepaint and this will make her game days far more enjoyable.

r/airsoft had this really cringy AK. dude named the gun and painted it multiple garbage colors. "Hello r/airsoft, meet [Anyoshka? Natalya? Kalinka?]" with some cringe retard defending his garbage gun.

Mostly bring this up after her first game day so you won't stop her dead in her tracks. If you lay in to her about her garbage taste - she won't enjoy herself.

finally, be happy that she didn't choose kryptek.

Let me give it to you straight: Women at airsoft fields to play airsoft, fine. Airsofters who have girlfriends, fine. Airsofters who have GFs who also happen to be airsofters, fine. All of these things are sadly the minority of women who go to airsoft fields historically.

Usually it's some dingus who drags his GF along to show her off, brag, or insist that they share the same hobbies. If it's the airsofter's GF showing interest, 9 times out of ten she'll go once and then never be seen again, either because of the sperglords at the field putting her off, or the stress of the game isn't something that's worth her interest. So seeing a poster say "I'm gonna take my GF airsofting" around here is immediately going to be the object of ridicule, no matter how nice or wholesome it actually is.

They're still all wrong though. No other guy is going to cuck him, she'll be stolen by the field's resident dual wielding Deagle lesbian.

>>
>>8968
You wanna know about flash mags, they work just like every other hi cap mag but the spring mechanism is based on a pullstring rather than a wheel. How "well" they work and what they fit is exactly the same as regular hi caps, from quality differences and fitments across brands. They're better for certain applications, like drum mags where a battery mechanism would be bulky and prone to failure, but in terms of regular hi caps, they're nothing very impressive, just a little bit easier to wind reliably.

This is why everyone's telling you to move to midcaps, because if you want performance, midcaps are actually better and cheaper, mag for mag. The time you spend winding isn't all that much different than a well drilled mag change and will provide more bbs to feed reliably at a time.
>>
Are there any other midcaps that work with a TM NGRS including the empty detection or are my only options the TM 82 rnd or the PTS 120 rnd models?

It's a Japanese term coined as a portmanteau of "soft air" guns. "Hard air" guns would be metal BB guns used for varmint hunting which are highly regulated in Japan. When you compare 6mm plastic bbs hitting you at sub-2J energy, it's certainly softer than 4.5mm metal bbs hitting you at upwards of 10J.

>The name "soft air" referred to the compressed Freon-silicone oil mixture (later replaced by a propane-silicone oil mixture known as "Green Gas") that was used as a propellant gas, which was significantly weaker than the cannistered CO2 used in proper airguns (pellet guns and BB guns).

what are you on about
AR15 low and midcaps start at 3$ a pop, cheaper if you buy boxes
its literally the price of a bag of good Bio BBs to change to midcaps if you're on any AR, which I assume you are because you asked about lowers and fitment.

assuming you want ten mags, that's 30$, plus Condor magpouches if you run molle will probably be in the range of 8$ each ( tbf im pulling that number out of my ass) giving you a combined total of 70$ for the end of rattling. a cheap charger is like 3-5$, meaning you spend 75 dollarinos - how many flash mags were you looking at and how were you going to store them?
>inb4 condor
condor LBE is absolute garbage, but their pouches are surprisingly good and value for money some of the best pouches you can buy.

I'm a pretty huge libtard but I'd assume it's just WWII costuming unless the rest of their shit is also covered in swastikas or something.

I'm frustrated that this is a thing because I feel like I wouldn't even be able to rock an MP44 or something without some people thinking I'm a nazi sympathizer

Hey field ref here, tell me about your field. I want to make my field better. I've been asking a bunch of questions to the guys who come about what they want but there's shit I know I haven't even thought of that would make shit good. What makes shit good for you?

Make designated full auto days and talk to the airsoft communities of your city and see if you can set up hosts with respected members, set up regular hosts and see how much people are having fun, but to be honest I know nothing about your field, so you really gotta ask the local community and players what they want and how you can improve based off the problems in your field

>>
>>9603
Former ref here. I used to work an indoor field, but these things are applicable to outdoor as well, there are two things that make your field better: Good, interesting layout and a low-salt community.

The former requires money and a close understanding about how players move during different gametypes. You need to build up for obstacles, landmarks, chokepoints, and other features that make moving through the field interesting and to make sure that these features result in a fair chance for everyone. No one wants to be at a disadvantage from the starting gun, and no one wants just the same shit every five steps. There needs to be variety and flow.

The latter is something you have even less control over. Who decides to stop in week by week is a matter of luck and competition. The players you want might live nearer to your competition, or maybe just everyone around you is an insufferable shit. What you can do is how you react to it: don't give preference to bad sportsmanship just because they're regulars or they're with a lot of people. Take no shit from anyone. If Big Group of gear queers aren't willing to split up so the rental kids can stand a fighting chance, then they're being shit sports and you can refuse to continue play until it's fun for everyone. Those rental kids didn't pay the exact same to get bullied either, so something has to give. Don't let it be you.

creative game modes
see rush
team a defends three bases in succession, they have limited spawns that the cross off on a sheet of paper. Stop the time. Team B gets unlimited spawns.
teams switch sides, stop the time again. The team that managed to kill all the defender bases quicker is the winner.

The main idea here is to focus player attention, giving high intensity fights and also allowing for flanking.

The most important thing is always the community. If it's friendly and devoid of assholes, even the simplest games will be fun. Set the example yourself and do good community policing when needed.

Besides that it's nice to have interesting terrain features/buildings that are reasonably well-maintained and not filled with trash. Also, fun scenarios to mix things up. One game remember I had lots of fun with was a Vietnam-styled objective game where the VC had to smuggle stuff along the trail and the US had a FOB they could only do patrols out of. Mind you, I'm talking about a field that's more of an abandoned strip of forest that we've appropriated, not a straight up arena.

If done right it will foster a good player base that will not only attract others, but keep those who are there coming back.

Bros I'm fucking autistic. About a year ago I got a full metal/wood CYMA AK and accidentally fucked the orange tip while trying to use the threads for a suppressor. A month in and it began doublefeeding and was spinning bbs right into the floor after 20ft. I purchased a new hop-up and motor, installed them correctly, but encountered the same issues. Dumped ~$160.00 or so into the thing. Gave me real AIDS

>gun does not shoot and doublefeeds
>better buy a new motor that has nothing to do with tappet plate and compression issues

should've gone to a tech
>>
>>10151
I'm not sure. I checked the barrel and it seems to be fine. The weird thing is that sometimes it works just fine, and when it does it's a real mean fucker, but 99% of the time when using on full auto it will leave the barrel, travel straight for about 20ft, and suddenly spin into the floor, this is usually coupled with doublefeeds
>>
>>10153
are you using midcaps to troubleshoot?
>>
>>10152
Yeah hindsight is a shit
>>
>>10156
not even hindsight if you just buy random parts instead of diagnosing the problem. My bet is the tappet plate and piston are broken.
>>
>>10155
Honestly didn't even think of that. I was a newfag to airsoft when I got it and I didn't realize that different mags can affect performance. On that note I might invest in some mil-sim / mid cap mags and see if that fixes anything.
>>
>>10157
To be fair I researched the issue and called a support line, everything they mentioned pointed to an issue with the hop-up or motor.

I found this AK74u but I can't tell if the only difference is a wood handguard over the normal CYMA or if I'm buying a total lemon. $139 with battery included is pretty nice if it's only difference is the flash hider and handguard

>>
>>10167
anyone have some input on whether or not this is a cleverly disguised lemon?

>>10161
Then I'd recommend an AUG if you can bother with not being able to use m4 mags. The weight being closer to shoulder should work well with small stature.
>>
>>10167
>>10175

Description makes it sound like that is the version that only has a steel folding stock and other metal parts as zinc alloy but I am not sure. Internally its still god bang for the buck.
>>
>>10092
>>10167
This would be the normal CYMA offering. https://www.evike.com/products/29565/ and they are offering a free battery & charger for the same price so might as well take the offer.

>>10147

Lost my barrel clip on the hop up sunday, gun went from 390fps with .25's to 120fps. It's easily the most forgotten part to keep in my field kit and most other guys' as well. They're cheap as fuck, so everyone, remember to pack one or two in your pieces case

>>10207
how would it get off midgame?

what would happen if I slap an 11.1v into a 7.4v recommended gearbox?
>>
>>10180
I got my wife a shorty Aug and she really likes it when she goes with us. It's light, the weight is easy to shoulder and it's really portable for her, considering she's only 5'1". My buddy got his wife a P90 that we thought would offer the same advantages but she ended up hating it and loved my wife's Aug so much she bought her own.

So long story short, Aug's are extremely chick-friendly guns
>>
>>10210
I seriously have no fucking clue how it happened
>>
>>10199
Probably a fucked tappet plate or nozzle possibly. Take it to a tech. Thankfully if your hop up is fine and gears are fine, pistons, tappet plates, and nozzles are cheap.

They're both running the Snow Wolf CQB's with high-torque motors and elliptical gears with mildly Angel extended barrels (an additional ~75mm) with suppressors and a tracer. They're surprisingly tough guns that only seem to have issues when you try to run a JG High cap mag on it.

what else should i be aware of?
>>
>>9603
the two main fields I go to

Field 2
>more commercial
>have free hot water, but provide your own cups/teabags
>smallish safezone 1 giant table and some pallets to put stuff on, backs directly onto carpark so not a massive deal
>sells sweets, cans, BBs, pyro
>has a working APC they use for games sometimes
>terrible road to get up, somebody ripped their oil sump once
>terrain is commercial forest with rough edges, lots of fence and baricade cover
>regulars feel like they get catered to more than at F2

Field 2
>mom and pop version of an airsoft field
>smaller than field 1
>safe zone is a bit of a walk from the carpark, not a trek but a bit annoying
>safezone is smaller, but more tables and chairs, plus a perch-bench/ small shelf running along the exterior
>rough track in but not a killer
>sells cans, sweets and BBs, ocasional bangs
>open fire to cook lunch if you bring stuff
>although smaller, terrain is wild woodland and helps the field feel bigger
>one guy has a juggernaught suit to play game modes with

there's a indoor CQB and an outdoor MOUT-esq stlye place nearby but they're further away, the MOUT place is my favourite but too far to go regularly

if you want your field to stand out and be great IMO it needs
>clean safe zone with overhead cover over tables
>some form of seating
>not a massive distance form the carpark
>good marshals who at least seem like they care, and are around when needed
>variety of game modes including props where possible
>sells at least basic snacks/water, the most popular bb weight where you are (so in the UK .2 and .25)
>allows you to use pyro/smokes/bangs and has clear rules on them
>has clear and not convoluted rules in regards to full auto/MED/knife/bang
>preferably mostly the same rules as other local sites
>has these rules on their social media/website so you don't get caught out
(one site here only lets you use bios and bans one of the most popular BBS in the UK, doesn't mention it until you get there, didn't go back)
>>
>>9971
this isn't even the paintball thread anon
>>
>>10267
that turned into a longer post than i thought

some of the interesting game modes we have here, most places probably have some variation of the same. there's also the basic base assualt, capture the flag, TDM, KOTH etc.

5 vs the world
>5 players on one team agaisnt the rest of the game day
>5 have full auto, everybody else semi
>have to defend a base/point against the horde
>if hit you join the 5

juggernaught
>2 teams, usually semi only
>juggernought starts in the middle "deactivated", is allowed full auto
>need to run up and tap him on the sholder, shout your team colour in his ear
>he then joins your team, slow advances on enemy base
>enemy team have to hit the pan on the back of his suit
>when hit he loses the team and becomes deactivated again
>he usually has an LMG with 2-3 mags, marshal helps him to reload to keep the fire up
>if he touches your flag you lose

scientist/pilot game
>marshal hides somewhere on site
>either both hunting or one defending one hunting
>have to find the marshal, take them to the rendevous and hold it for X time
>marshal usually has a pistol and if not held onto/touched after X interval will try to escape and hide again

Fallback
basically what >>9830 said but under a different name

Drugblocks
>during lunch marshals hide X blocks and laptops out on the field, think there's usually liek 10-15 blocks and 3 laptops
>blocks are worth 1, laptops worth 3
>have to recover them and take them back to base
>if hit while carrying you drop it where you were hit
>can only carry 1 item
>can raid enemy base
>sometimes not all the blocks are recovered/marshals forget where they put them, they just stay out until next game.
>usually played with fallback/medic rules rather than respawns

Supply run/extract
>big ass metal surplus crate/ dummy on stretcher given to one team
>takes 2 people to carry, can only use sidearms when carrying
>have to take it from your base to another, usually other side of site
>other team have to stop you
>>
>>10264
>hop up units that allow you to shoot at almost twice the range
What? Flat hop and Rhop have been around since 2011 at least. I use to make custom flat hop bucking out of rubber and super glue them to shaved hop up arms. I guess for whats new you don't have to do that any more. Maple Leaf sells MR Buckings/Nubs and if you are running an AR platform you have Maxx which makes hop ups designed just for flat/rhops.

You can flat hop any hop for the most part. As for Maxx hop up units they said they had an AK version coming but that was all the way back in 2019 and we haven't heard anything since. Good news is that AK hop-ups are fine and don't really need to be replaced. If you want to get the most performance for the least amount of money I would say pick up a ZCI tight bore from brill armory, and then a Maple Leaf MR hop up bucking and omega nub from airsoft atlanta. If you are not comfortable installing it yourself it should be a really easy and fast job for a tech to do. If they try to use teflon though they are retarded and get a new tech.

Is there any way to hack empty mag detection into a regular AEG with an optical sensor or something?
>>
>>10319
you mean like a bolt hold open?
>>
>>10320
No, I don't care about bolt stop or anything. I would just love to implement something like paintball eyes where it won't shoot if there's no bb in the chamber.
>>
>>10324
ASG EVO Scorpion and TM NGRS are ones that come to mind that blocks the trigger when empty
>>
>>10319
hop up chambers exist for that. tehre are also some other ways I dont remember what they were called.
>>
>>10319
There was a trigger unit that used an optical sensor a while back but it was really finicky and didnt work well. The only mag cut offs that are worth are the ones that have the mags themselves push a lever or button to let the AEG know its out of ammo. The TM NGRS, ASG Scorpion, Wolverine MTW, and a few others do this.
>>
>>10334
VFC mp7 has a magnet in the hop up chamber and another in the magazine follower. When the lat round is shot the magnets touch and it signals the mosfet to stop trigger from shooting the gun. Might be possible to implement in other guns too.

Oh I kinda already hate airsoft. I'm a paintball guy at heart, but I play with them and have my own setup and everything. Really I don't hate it but I like running around spraying ropes, not sitting down and waiting.
>>9753
That's one of the reasons I like to play, basically to see what's wrong with the field layout. Ownership of our field changed recently and we've been doing a ton of work on it but money's tight. We have a resident team who's full of chill guys who help the new players out, and that's a fucking blessing. I also want to keep them happy because they've both helped us out a ton and make it worth coming.
>>9830
Sounds awesome, thanks man.
>>9961
Gotcha. Our field is 55 or so acres put in the middle of bumfuck nowhere, which is great, but makes it hard for smaller games sometimes.
>>10065
We did pretty well last season, had 15-30 people every open play which was better than the previous year. We're trying to get the rules ironed out too, and a lot of that is getting our refs on the same page and slimming the rules down while also covering edge cases. I will admit I have to probably be a little less lax on enforcement too, it's important to be consistent.
>>
>>9980
Cool. Until the mags leak ever so slightly. Not cool at all.
rapid fire trigger isn't possible because of cool down in anything but boiling hot weather.

>>10036
I held one at a field. They suck. the canted pistol grip puts weight on your wrist in a very unusual way, as you have to constantly use the twisting muscle to keep the gun up.

>>10129
P90 if field limits are close to .989J, as the P90 hop is difficult to seal if you go a lot higher.
Otherwise, pick an SMG. MP5, Scorpion Evo, MP7(GBB). G36 is also a decent relatively light option.

Shoots faster in full auto and trigger response gets better. Wears the parts in gearbox faster and run a risk of trigger contacts melting together.

Expensive as hell and built for japanese military nerds that might use it in a game once. Jap joule limit is under 1j and TM caters to japan first and export second. If you want aeg with recoil there are other options available that are more compactible with existing parts and way cheaper.
