>>70791Thread Prompt:Do you actually use sights/aim while playing airsoft? If so why? If not is it because you just know how your gun shoots?
>>70792I don't use sights because I have used the same gun for years and have gotten used to its performance, so I am able to shoot distant targets with little aiming, also bbs are too imprecise of a projectile anyways alongside shorter ranges. Also kek on the tilted sights, the tilt will mean that the bbs will curve off because how a hopup works
>>70795>he doesn't tilt his gun to counteract windNGMI
>>68209Nah, I'm not considering the mechanical after falling for the Tippmann meme. They're fun for plinking and full retard target practice, but they're difficult for skirmishes, to say the least.
Quick rundown on KJW Hi Capa versus Marui? I like the look of both KP-05/KP-06, I have a TM Hi Capa 4.3 already but most of the threaded barrels and shit I find is for 5.1.Not sure if I should get another plastic fantastic TM, or give KJW a shot, and maybe run it with CO2 mags too.
>>70823If you need CO2 mags, give it a shot, otherwise TM or nothing
Big overnight fall event coming in a few weeks here in Southern AZ, bringing my nephews with myself and some friends and their kids (my boys are still too young). Had a mini skirmish lastnight to test some gear and had 2 AEGs, all of my gas mags for my 1911 save one, and my claymore severely fuck up. Praying evike can get off their ass getting me parts sent so it's not all last minute pit repairs
>>70792I do use sights, but that's because I'm into airsoft for playing pretend and it personally feels better for me to shoot aiming down my sights.Plus my AEG shoots pretty spot on to the sights for the sites I play and the GBB I'm using has a red dot sight I'm working on getting sighted for the new ammo weight I'm running
>>70792yes, because I've only been playing for 2 months
>>70822Tippmans main issue was their understanding of hop-up was seriously flawed. It took them forever to fix the issue even after plenty of DIY and 3rd party solutions became available. Then there was the "recoil" issue where it recoiled forward due to the open bolt design and not backward. Overall it is kinda sad, because you would think with the decades of engineering experience they would be the ones to bring a reasonable mechanical HPA gearbox to market. Their newer line actually performs quite well from what I have seen, but they are all electronic so now they are competing against super tuned P* and Wolverine products. Really should have just stayed in the mechanical realm, possibly working on a drop in gearbox solution. I know a ton of people who would trade out their electro pneumatic systems for full mech systems due to Milsims.
>>70792I didn't use any optics until this year. Turns out when the field limits it to semi auto only for rifleman its worth it to try and be as accurate as possible with your shots.
>>70792I use my sights because my sights are perfectly zeroed and my gun is tuned to fire completely flat out to 80 yards with .28s. I can't hit someone's hand from across the map in a single shot with instinctive fire, but if I put the dot right on your glove, it's getting onetapped.>bruh why don't you just fullauto so you know you hit them bruhBecause I don't suck ass and my gun isn't a piece of shit.
>>70825Is it milsim or some kind of scenario? I got an event here but its some weird apocalypse event and you cant wear camo and can only use minimal gear
>>70857Yeah, I was also unlucky enough to get First Gen with a shittier hop-up than later gen. I just use it for fun.
>>70889*farts and alters your BB trajectory in your sight**teleports behind you**full auto magdump hipfire*pfftttt, nothin personel.
>>70947Cringe in pain like the kid that burnt my patch.
>>70927sat afternoon to sunday afternoon skirmish games. Nothing too crazy, really more of a chill out and meet people and throw some BBs around
>>70792I boresight all my optics. It's rare my BBs go where the dot is at, but I know exactly where they'll go every day after my first 3 or 4 shots so I just make a mental note of it, unless I'm using an LPVO, then I try to adjust everything to 35 yards or so with one click of hop.
fuckin hell I recently got the LCT AS-VAL and it's such a bitch to reinstall the suppressor. Shit was easier to disassemble than reassembling
>>70965I just take two minutes to re-zero my dots and tune my hop-up when I go to the range to chrono after gearing up in the morning. Sometimes she just hits different and needs a click or two. Minute of helmet is usually good enough to get gun hits at 20-30 yards but the goal is a two inch group at 50 yards. I didn't pay LCT prices to get barn door performance, so I'm getting that thing as close to laser-perfect as I can. Also because there is nothing more satisfying than watching a single bb sail directly down your point of aim into some rental's exposed skin halfway across the map.
So I took a gamble and ended up buying >>70166 the g&p. Going to try and have a first look review for you all tomorrow with pictures and shit, but I can talk about it a bit.For the engine it looks like they either used the same OEM for the lancer tactical legion or copied it. Unlike the legion it is the same G&P body they used with their partnership with P* to make the R3. So aluminum body with a plastic trigger. That being said the trigger is pretty crisp, and the full auto is full speed softer "he burned my patch" territory.One glaring downside is they are not using the same regulator as they did on the R3. It requires over 600 psi (so no slp tanks), but the real kicker is it is not really compatible with the Polarstar UGS rail setup anymore. I have an idea to make it work but it is a fucking bummer.
>>70792I use irons, but also shoot from the hip. I do alternate 5 bbs at a time in my mid caps, which helps for shooting from the hip.
May need to get an airsoft tech to look at my gun. I have an inferno gen2'd arp9, and occasionally gas comes out of the action and barrel, and then the gun won't fire. I have some parts on the way, so I'll see if swapping those out fixes it..
>>71031Thats the nozzle getting jammed. Either it is catching on the bucking, or the bucking is folding in and catching the bb. Also a possibility that it just needs to be cleaned and lubed.
open-bolt SMG brothers
that KWC Uzi CO2 hard-kick GBB that was on sale on Evike for $139.00 is pretty guud
>>71126>>71125God I wish the peepee wasn't hot garbage and a nightmare to tech.
i know r*eddit but like wtf https://www.reddit.com/r/airsoft/comments/q7m9nx/dude_named_retri_airsoft_posted_this_on_yt_one_of/
>>71149https://youtu.be/u11sFsud9Gw?t=80The kid is clearly going through a phase of being intentionally confrontational, a lot of mid-late teen boys go through it, it almost always comes to an end after they act like a dick to someone more unhinged than them, and they get their shit kicked in.
>>71062I'll try lubing and swapping out the lines.
>>71151>it almost always comes to an end after they act like a dick to someone more unhinged than them, and they get their shit kicked in.Comments say this dude is in texas and banned from 90% of fields, which means he's gotten his teeth kicked in at least once. He's never going to learn.
I'm a socially anxious sperg that's nervous but interested in playing airsoft. Tell me, is airsoft not to sport for me if I'm a pussy? Is there any hope at all?
>>71161A good 10% of players on a given day at any site will be weirdos/spergs, you'll be fine. You avoid social situations by busying yourself in the safe zone with your gear, and once you're out on the field there's very little social interaction required other than asking for location of enemy.
>>71161i was in the same boat as you, and i decided to thoroughly research everything before going so i wouldn't make an ass of myself. Also try finding a field that's inviting to newcomers. And just say that you are new to whoever's leading out there so hopefully they can help you out.
>>71161It is a pretty damn good sport for a sperg.
>>71151Is that a PDW-R? BASED.
>>71168Where do I get this patch, you absolute king?
>>71170Out of stock for a long time. Don't think the guy will do another run
I do use my sights and i keep reeing at my boys for not using theirs.I'm looking for a CO2 pistol with blow back. Any recommendations on manufacturers? No space guns. Beretta 92 or similar classics preferred. More realistic controls more better.
>>70791>buy something been looking for for ages>submit order and pay>get email next day saying out of stock>no idea if or when item will restockAll I want to do is merely consoom, is that really such an unreasonable request?
>>71151whyd that asshole shoot the bunny
>>71222because cole n is a tard
>>71203KJW makes decent CO2 Berettas.
>>71227I have the KP01 and i switched from C02 to Green Gas. the CO2 magazine was impossible to screw in because it was at an angle, so it just stripped. It could also just me being retarded, but i just gave up and bought green gas mags instead
Anyone here own a LCT AS VAL or VSS Vintorez? or can just speak about the quality of the internals in general cause i heard mixed opinions. CYMA i know also makes both models but the externals don't really look as good as the LCT ones but i know CYMA's are very reliable which is a plus.
>>71212THE YEAR IS 2021.CONSOOMING IS NO MORE.SAY HELLO TO RENTING AND PAYING OTHERS TO WATCH THEM CONSOOM.
Bros I plan to consoom. I'm considering getting the ultimate airsoft gun and selling all of my other chinkshit and busted guns so I don't have to look at them anymore.Or I'll keep them because they're my bros.Anyways.MTW Forged or AEG Scorpion Evo?
>>71255Buy a GBBR, scrub
>>71257Don't they all suck cocks? Is there anything I won't have to tweak like a 30 year old car after every ride?GHK?
>>71259Yeah they all suck. Don't be fooled by that guy to waste your money.
>>71260I mean, I have a Marui GBBP and MP7, and outside of some issues I know about, they're alright, so I could believe it's possible to make a good GBBR, but I have a feeling it's all like WE, and every magazine knocks off a few HP points off of them.
>>71222because he's a nigger.
>>71203KWC(Cybergun) make fairly reliable 1911s. WE/Armorer Works (also sold by Cybergun) also make inexpensive co2 pistols, but not sure I'd trust them as much.
>>71255>ultimate airsoft gunI wouldn't call either the best, but both are good. I can talk a bit about the MTW since I own one. If you decide on a MTW, especially one of their forged models, don't fuck with it if you are not prepared to do the tuning necessary. It blows my mind the amount of people who buy one, fuck with it, and then get upset when it shoots like shit because they didn't readjust everything. Basic knowledge list for MTW buying:>Forged over billet simply for premium FCU>Inferno engine is better then Reaper in every conceivable way with the exception of the Reaper having a full mech model, but if you want that there are better options>Phoenix hop-up is fairly hard to tune, and takes very small adjustments (like 1/12th turns). A lot of people swap it out for the billet poly hop-up which still works well.>Stock barrel is an ASG 6.03mm brass, and stock bucking is a maple leaf super. Bucking is great, barrel is on par with ZCI if you clean/polish it.>If you want to swap buckings most people have great success with ones that have a "bump" contact patch like the Maple Leaf Supers, G&G Green, Madbull shark blue/red, and REAPS A+.>R-Hops, flat hops, and Maple leaf MR buckings are memes and typically on par or worse then the buckings mentioned above. The hop up unit applies a shit load of contact and plenty of people have gotten .45g bbs to hop at 1.5j without any R-Hop/flathop/mr.>You will need to run AT LEAST .32g bbs. MTWs tend to overhop the shit out of anything lighter, and most people still run .36g. I personally run .4g bioshots.>tune dwell for highest weight BB you will ever run, then tune for FPS>If you are dead set on using lighter weight BBs Silent Industries sells a ton of aftermarket stuff for MTWs including entire replacement arms for MTW hop-ups that apply less pressure.
>>71255>>71281But to go a little bit more into "Ultimate" gun. IMO if you are talking about HPA it would be a F2 build with an air stock running one of those 15ci 4500psi tanks. F2 engines are just a bit more air efficient then Inferno Gen2s, and with a 15ci 4500psi tank you are looking at 1700~2000 shots before needing to refill. That being said, the F2 build would be WAY more then a MTW even without the airstock, and the MTW would preform 95%~98% of the way to the F2. Not to mention that MTWs are incredibly easy to work on, and come with perfect alignment by design.
I'm getting an old hand me down Echo 1 in a week or two, what parts (if any) can I pick up to tune it up? I don't really need more FPS, I'd just like to get it nice and accurate and reliable. I already have a Perun to install so I'm thinking of just getting a deans connector, a pack of midcaps, and then maybe a tighter bore barrel and a better hop up bushing?
>>71259GHK is shit. At least their M4 is. GBBRs are based and hated by AEG scrubs. Buy a TM MWS M4
>>71227>>71269Thanks for the tip. Looks like a shop near me might have a KWC 1911 A1. I need to go fondle that one little bit to see if it feels nice.
>>71284For it to be more reliable get compression set parts (cylinder, piston, piston head)
any of you guys make a lens protector out of plexi glass before? Any tips for making it clear if its not completely clear?
>>71305Strongly recommend against the KWC 1911 and any of its rebrands - the things are proprietary underperformers that cost way more than they're worth and break down pretty quickly, both in my experience and the experiences of many othersPersonally, I can recommend the KJW G17 if you aren't particular about specific handgun platforms, and I've also heard decent things about their Beretta 92 aside from not having a decocker - that being said, I might also recommend running gas mags if the temperature allows for them, since propane is far cheaper than CO2 to obtain and fill
>>71326>Any tips for making it clear if its not completely clear?Toss it aside and buy a sheet of polycarbonate instead.
>>71335thats too expensive and im too cheap
>>71326>plexiglassDon't, plexi shatters when hit by a BB. Use lexan/polycarbonate like >>71335 mentioned.>>71336>thats too expensive and im too cheapHow fucking broke are you where you can't afford a $6 sheet of lexan from homedepot?https://www.homedepot.com/p/LEXAN-10-in-x-8-in-Polycarbonate-Sheet-31-GE-XL-1/202090134I bought one of these at least a year or two ago and made protectors for 5-6 optics already, and still have enough left for at least 1-2 more.
>>71337Damn didn't know it would shatter, thats why I bought it instead of the poly carbonate which they had which was like 20 bucks at menards. Probably gonna go tomorrow then and pick it up at home depot
>>71339Yeah, plexiglass wont shatter into a million pieces like normal glass, but it will break into chunks and crack. Lexan/Polycarb at worst gets scuffed or dents. IDK what exactly you are trying to make a protector for, but if it is something simple that has scope covers you can go really nice with a hole saw bit + drill press, or just use some metal shears and cut out a circle you traced.
>>71284I mean its a E1 so I wouldn't be dumping a ton of money into it, but a short list to make it shoot nice>clean/reshim/relube>replace orings, if it doesn't have a full metal rack on the piston. or a ported poly head you may want to swap those out with some cheap SHS replacements.>replace hop-up unit with cheap rotary unit>maple leaf super/G&G green/prome purple bucking with a firefly or maple leaf nub>either clean and polish stock barrel, or replace with $20 zci.E1 is pretty much the original rebranding company with most of their guns being made by JG. That being said JG gears are fine, and their blue motors are pretty tourqy. Pair that with a nice cheap highspeed gearset like rocket or shs for nice semi spam with decent ROF. IDK what model you are getting but if it is a really old G36 model they came with plastic bushings that will need to be replaced. If it is one of their AK models there is a chance it was actually made by CYMA depending on which one it is.
What's the cheapest way to go about making a full auto only gun semi auto? Specifically an ICS M3 Grease gun
>>71360Doesn't it have a selection on the gun for safe/semi/fa?
>>71361the M3/M3A1 design doesn't have a fire selector - you're either on safe or full-auto, and the ICS M3 replicates thatI take it he wants to find a way to permanently stick the thing to semi to use it in CQB or something of that nature
>>71343Thanks friendoI should note it's basically never been used if that makes a difference, a friend bought it and never really used the thing beyond test firing.It's a SCAR-L which I think is dboys OEM
>>71339You can also probably get a sheet or 2 from ebay for that little. I only needed to make a couple custom size protectors, but I have enough to make 10-20 of them.
Went to my first game with my new gun, LCT AK, and damn... really fucking disappointing... >the hop-up is really shitty doesn't help that those mfs didn't even give me enough time to adjust it >the gun locks up in semi if i'm firing in semi then switch to autoAnyone know what could be causing it to lock up? like, if i switch from safe to full, it works fine, but then when i go to semi and then back to full, it's now stuck in semi.
>>70889>tuned to fire completely flat out to 80 yards>with .28sThey'd be floating at that point, so any wind would cause a significant deviance.
>>71444>They'd be floating at that point, so any wind would cause a significant deviance.That's what's nice about woodsball + our weather is typically calm as fuck unless it's storming. I'm sure I'd have trouble in Idaho or something or if the field was out in the open, geographically speaking.
My nephew that we take with us to events and such has been showing me a lot of airsoft YouTube shit. Kicking Mustang and Dutch the Hooligan seem like they're assholes
>>71464At the very least, Kicking Mustang is an absolute cunt and shouldn't be looked upon in a good lightRoutinely cheats, instigates fights, overshoots with joule-creeped guns at very close ranges, etc. and acts like it's all everybody else's fault - pretty sure there are ~41 UK fields that have banned him outright because of stuff like this, and every single time he acts like he's the victim
>>71464id fly to the UK just to kick that mustang guy's ass
>>71443Stop spamming the trigger in semi
>>71360Look into using a mosfet to make it semi auto.
>>71474i'm not, retard. it happens even if i shoot just once.
>>71477Then get fucked lmao
>>71478why are you such a nigger?
>>71443Gears are cycling too slow. Stop feathering the trigger, get a good high torque motor, and use a more powerful battery.
How long have airsoft threads been on this board? I used to post back when it was on /asp/ before the mandrama took over.Also the new captcha system sucks.
>>71464Dutch seems like an ok guy. Fuck Kicking Cuntstang though. The only airsoft e-celebs I find worth watching imo is Alfonse, Negative, and FOV>>71497We had this board here since February or March I think
>>71500Neagtive Airsoft i feel is just too negative
>>71497we were here the first day, welcome home
>>71500like like swamp snipers LARP games, and Jets milsim vids are solid
>>71517Have you stopped disappointing in bed yet?
>>71518I like these too, swamp sniper seems like a nice guy who has to deal with a lot of spergs in his RP games and I don't watch Jet's vids for Jet I watch it to see large scale milsim stuff
>>71516He acts negative solely for critiquing brands while using banter to have fun with his viewers, at least that's how I think of it.
>>71527Implying that anyone here beds someone
Leaf here thinking of getting back into this with a bud.Nothing serious, but my old JG g36c isn't in good shape and thinking of picking up an AKAny recommendations? I'm looking for a decent full metal one on the cheaper side in case and was thinking CYMA, but haven't seen any for sale here in southern Ontario.
at least the faggot will reveal himself so he can be shot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2QjGl2QRp0&ab_channel=GaosenKinetics
>>71583>leafthe paste bin has stuff on aks, cyma is good i hearalso hows that ban comming along
>>71587Priced to troll! If you can program the lighting sequence, it'll never be in stock.I'm still looking for a shotgun tracer unit that doesn't looks like ass and cost $200.
>>71591Election put it on hold, probably won't re-introduce it till after their current internet [s]censorship[/s] safety bill is done.
>>71583Unless you want to splurge for a LCT, CYMA is going to be your go to. I think someone posted this last thread. Get one of their VFC clones.
>>71343>>71399Bringing this up again, yeah, it's a DBOYS Scar-L and was never really used. So far my cart has some mags, a deans connector, some ammo, and I need to hit $15 more for free shipping. What should I add on? I know nothing about airsoft tech and I'm not sure if I'd get more out of a barrel or a new hop unit or something else entirely.
>>71596my local field allows gas operated guns to not have tracer/flashlight. weird rule, but if i had the choice doing a shot gun at night. i wouldnt run a tracer unit.
>>71583You can get them through Taiwangun. I have 3 different CYMAs of the VFC clones like >>71606 pic related and they are all great
>>71623hop up rubber, chink stock ones were never good, black systema is a safe choice. this will be the biggest change you can easily do yourself, after that you should focus on making everything in gearbox airtight
>>71626>my local field allows gas operated guns to not have tracer/flashlightI'm not sure that's what you mean. Aren't all guns allowed to not have lights?>>71623>I need to hit $15 more for free shippingGet some patches. They give +1 to morale.
>>71623Maple leaf super bucking + omega nub, or a G&G green bucking + firefly flat nub.
>>71677Probably means during night games.
>>71685G&G used to be a golden standard, nowadays they have shit qc. Nubs sometimes come badly made, I wouldn't recommend it anymore.
id love to get a PP/PPk
>>71705https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00zrkc1l4FYSame, if it was good enough for Hitler and James Bond, it's good enough for me. It looks like Maruzen did a run of them in September. Shame the metal body kits are so rare, and the ACM one from a few years ago was made of the lowest grade Chinesium.
>>71674>>71685Hop up bucking it is, thanks friendos
>>71717the only one ive see around me is the umarex full metal springer
>>71685>>71674>>71697How are Krytac buckings? Systema is out of stock and I'll avoid G&G
>>71727Get a Maple Leaf super, have legit watched guns that couldn't hop .3s on the stock bucking be able to lift .4s with no problem with just a swap.https://ampedairsoft.com/maple-leaf-2021-super-macaron-airsoft-hop-up-silicone-bucking/That with this nubhttps://ampedairsoft.com/maple-leaf-omega-hop-up-tensioner-for-aeg-internal-upgrade/
>>71732I'm reading these are primarily for snipers and heavy weight BBs, I'm just going to use .25s. Should I get something else? Also, what difference do the degree options make?
>>71733They are just good buckings, they come stock in MTWs. Degree refers to how hard the bucking is. With rubber ones the harder it is often the less grip it has. With the Maple leaf super I linked even the 80 degree ones grip like crazy.
>>71737So it should be fine with a typical ~350fps AEG? What hardness would you recommend in that case?I did read a guide about hop up buckings but it was just kind of information overload and didn't really say much about what's good for various velocities and BB weights
>>7173870 degree should be fine. It works for anything between 300 and 400fps very well.
>>71281>>71283Thanks for the posts, I'll think about it
>>71744Look for the older models, new ones have a ring on the inside designed to seal with maple leaf barrels but it fucks with normal ones.
>>71677>>71696yeah, during night games.
>>71329Can't find any anywhere near. CO2 is pretty much only option because of the temperatures.
>>71769Never mind. I found one good online store with good selection. 105 bucks for KJ Works M9A1 CO2 GBB. Not bad at all.
>only S&W 45xx is a springerIt's enough to make one reeee.
>>71761This complicates things since I'd be ordering from abroad. Maybe I should just stick to AEG Scorpion Evo or some other HPA gun.
>>71935that looks like shit, just buy a real one
>>71937go back to green G&G and black systema, you can also take blue madbull, purple prometheus, black or gray modify baton
>>71945Cool. Planning to get it off of Powair6 in about a month.
>>71944>just buy a real oneCivilian ownership of firearms is entirely unnecessary in the utopian paradise I live in.
>>71988i dont get it are you baiting
>>71126When was it on sale for $139? Looks like it's $185 now which is a lot less appealing.
Best glock that comes with a threaded barrel out of the box?Or should I just stick to Hi Capa and try to get a outer barrel with threading?I'm tempted to get something new like CZ-75 or USP, but they all come without threaded barrels and I need to TRACOOM
>>72084Threaded barrels are cringe
>>72087how do I attach a tracer then.
>>71500>>71555Jet and Swamp seem fine, though Jet is 100% a shill for whomever is sending him free shit or paying him. But atleast he seems to pick the sponsors who don't make terrible shit.Alfonse is cool, I met him at an event a few years ago and he was really nice to everyone and even helped a kid that was out there who had a noticeable disability actually do well in the games.
>>72120I should add Khanseb to the list since he started getting back into airsoft again too and he's pretty cool
Are biodegradable BBs edible
Made a makeshift vertical grip for the XM out of a grip
>>72393What's with the packing tape
>>72406losing my mind
>>72406It's so the glowies won't be able to lift any prints from the picture
>>72349haha imagine if you ate it all and I'm like>I'm out!And then you drop your pants and bend over and I put my hicap under your ass and you shart it full of bio bbs haha everyone would laugh.
>>72349A curious question, which I'm sure has been asked here before, no doubt by you yourself. Do not eat the bbs though
>>72450>not using shart blast of bbs for breaching doorways

Every fucking time I do, I have to fix their fuckups, and would have done a better job myself in the first place.
Played some evening games against a higher quality group of opponents than I'm used to. I got less kills than normal and died more than I'm used to, which is to be expected. But what really stuck with me was how much more fun it was. The guys I normally team with were with me, too. So they all got beat up a bit too but we all came back to the pits after games laughing more than normal and the other guys were jovial as well and we went and grabbed pizza with most of them after. Airsoft is cool, guys
>>72541Sometimes, the only way to get things done is to do it yourself. There's lots of techs floating around but there's always a chance they are mediocre/only work on one type of gun and thus you get shoddy work.
>>72548Played at a new field this weekend, had a good mix of newbies and oldfags, great games. Slayed with my Tippmann M4 V1 (finally fixed my semi auto) and SSX23. Best games were pistols/shottys because everyone rushed in and played hard.
>>72550Wish the community was more lively in my neck of the woods for shotty/pistol games to happen.>w-what do you mean I can't use my decked out AR15? I carry the sidearm just for the looks, it doesn't even work well. Fuck this game I'm out.

>>72613Sauce plz. Jet and his wife are insufferable.
Jet makes fun videos although
>>72614His wife does seem fucking awful. Very few white chicks who may Asian guys aren't awful. The few that are cool are pretty good though
i will say they were smart enough to keep greg "larp to own the libs" at edge of their circle
>not one outdoor picture in the whole threadIf I just wanted theoretical discussion of range toys I'd stay on /k/
fine, this was from sunday
>>72650Here is a photo from my local field that they posted
>>72617Leah is the kind of feminine that trannies are acting on when they completely fail at understanding women aren't just dudes that like pink, glitter and attention
>>72655looks like a field I used to go to, where is it?
>>72671FL, east coast
>>72613>got humiliated again at MSW.Don't leave me hanging man
>>72675The one I'm thinking of is Black tiger which is west/central
>>72689At this point my guess is he got shot a bunch of times and some guy told him "I got you" and he replied "yeah" and then he offered up leah for the night and the guy said ok and produced a paper bag for her
Man, this thread got very slow? Off season?
>>72745That's very unkind, even if his wife is a bit of a dog.
>>71161I´m fat, have no stamina, can´t run faster than a slow jog because of some problems with both of my knees, socially anxious. Going to my first game on the 14th, kinda nervous desu since I don´t know anyone there but still excited! Don´t let fear control you anon!
>>72762Oh, don't worry. If I was deliberately being unkind I would have put them in a Loss meme.
>>71161You'll find wallflower of all types at your local field. You'll be fine
>>72739Black tiger is the biggest field in the state by player base. I have gone a few times over the years, but it has kinda deteriorated IMO. The Field itself has vastly improved with their container city, but at the same time that fucking container city has ruined play for that entire field. It simply doesn't flow well and there is not enough cover to allow for assaulting it. Not to mention a lot of their flawed game designs with teams getting spawn trapped off the start, and then stuck there for the entire duration of the game. Pretty much boils down to it looks cool, but plays like shit.
>>72791Freedom in Tucson is getting there. They expanded the kill house to run the entire middle of the field and every have is a rush to see who can get in first and just shoot from the windows.
My field has two opposing ridges but one is way better to shoot from than the other so every camper perks himself up there while the other team has to assault them to weed them out. Every game is like playing Normandy.
>>72791I haven't played there for almost 10 years so I haven't been in the 'city' yet, it was 95% foliage cover back when I went there all the time. I liked that but I preferred combat city (in orlando, I believe it is out of business now), which had a lot of cute structures that were laid out in the way that made the area seem huge, like it had a bunch of 'regions'.
>>72804good, balance is cringe
>>71161>>72790You should definitely man-up and just go and try it, but I strongly recommend bringing a buddy if you can find one. When I was a kid my dad was cool enough to go with me (and enjoy it), it was even better having same-age friends with me as well but it was still very fun with him. Would suck to have no one to rehash experiences with.
>>72816Agreed on all counts. I take my sons and nephews, a few friends come with their kids. My wife has even started coming with us since my buddy's wife who she's friends with has taken an interest. It's a really great family activity that builds a lot of trust and confidence in the kids. My 11 year old takes direction like a fucking champ and has developed a really good attention to detail on and off the field. It even translated to his academic performance and athletic ability
And now we wait.

>>71161I had pretty bad social anxiety as well (homeschooled as a kid) and I found that once I have full mask on and everything I become much more confident. For your first game I find big public fields that are welcoming to new people are much easier to get into, and there will probably be a tone of very obvious rentals who also have no clue what's going on (though depends on field)

How much better is Raider 1.0 vs 2.0? What's the trigger response like? Already have 1.0 but just wondering if I missed out in much Also does using a LIPO make much of a difference with trigger response? Is it as big of a difference as switching to using a MOSFET?

>>72991It's also the easiest choice for lighting cigars
>>72999Trips of truth my brother!
>>72894I use one of those cyma sawn off 870s as a sidearm. Spring always works.
Anyone run spring sniper rifles? I just can't wrap my head around the idea of spending that much money on what is essentially an overglorified springer
>>73044Springer is all you need, it only takes one bb to make someone call hit
Are biodegradable BBs bullshit? I threw some in my yard like 2 years ago and they still look like they just came out of the bag once you dust the dirt off.
>>73102They are typically "biodegradable" in the sense that it will eventually do it compared to traditional plastic BBs that never biodegrade. Some manufacturers need their BBs to take some damage to the outer layer from being shot.
>>73057But why are they so expensive? It's just a springer
>>73116A well-made springer isn't really any cheaper to build than a well made AEG. it requires the same kinds of machined parts. The electronics are not really where the price comes from in an AEG.You're likely just used to picturing springers as inherently cheap since walmart-tier .12g 150 fps guns are always springers. But that's not because they're springers, it's because they're cheap springers. You can buy $20 clear AEGs from places like that too
>>73102What happens if you pinch one?If it doesn't give away at all you've been scammed.
How do I get as close to my local range's 400 fps cqb limit without going over? They go by joules so don't suggest cheating with heavier bbs. The ads are always lying about what their fps is so it's hard to plan
>>73144More specifically: if I buy a cyma AK that says something like 420-430 FPS then how much of a risk am I really running? I'm looking at the website and they have totally different fps ranges within the general 380-430 range for guns that appear identical as far as barrels and gearboxes go
>>73146get whatever you want and have it serviced by someone competent. cymas are usually have harder springs than their fps suggest, so serviceman should get the pneumatics air tight and then downgrade the spring.
>>73144Assuming you don't have adjustable FPS:Change the spring. Change the barrel length.
>>73154>>73155way too much money and work, im asking how to *choose* one that isn't going to average more than a few fps over 400 Am I to understand that they don't lie about FPS as much anymore? I haven't bought a gun in about 10 years
I'm a historyfag, have been thinking about getting an Airsoft replica of a real gun for some time now (a deactivated weapon just sits on the shelf doing nothing, and a real replica requires a license and costs way too much for casual recreational use)I'm gonna buy something like a Garand M1, a BAR or a Kar98, would get something rarer like a MAS 36 but it seems like stuff like that requires custom made jobs and i don't trust myself with such a thing yet as i would probably get scammed/ go over budgetOnce i go through with the plan should i look into the local airsoft scene, or should i stick to shooting cans and targets in the backyard?The only reason i would go there is to cosplay/ roleplay as a WW2 soldier and i fear it would be out of place
>>73156If you're not willing to do any work, then get one in the 350fps range. If you're losing because of 50 fps, then git gud (which is free).>>73157>The only reason i would go there is to cosplay/ roleplay as a WW2 soldier and i fear it would be out of placeAt some point, you learn to not give a shit anymore. In fact, many people appreciate variety and not another Multicam User #4311. People will start talking to you, build off of your courage and RP as WW2 soldiers themselves, and soon you'll be storming Poland.
>>73157i play in ww2 gear all the time , most people are impressed that it somthing different from generic muiltcam/ woodland operator
>>73160Do you have any suggestion on what type of thing to get to have a nice shooting feel? As a beginner i feel i should go with a spring based thing, but it seems substantally worse than an electric/gas one, albeit a lot cheaper
>>73161forget about springers even existing, just get an electric like everyone else, thank us later
>>73161electric would be the best starting my thompson was only 200 euro much cheaper that a spring kar ect remember you be up against m4's and ak's
>>73159I was at the field yesterday and I absolutely dominated with a generic rental aeg, but i would have gotten a lot more kills if i could shoot about 20 feet further. Airsoft guns in general are a real bitch to open up and modify. I have real guns, they are incredibly easy by comparison. Airsoft guns are sensitive as fuck and I generally have the mindset of getting a decent, moderately priced one and throwing it away and replacing it if it gets substantially damaged.
>>73161AEGs are the only option if you intend to actually play airsoft. The only exception is if you are very experienced and have thousands of dollars you are willing to spend to satisfy your LARP desires, and you'll be running at a disadvantage since nothing else can meet a standard AEG's volume of fire.
>>73161Fair note that the others aren't mentioning: if you want to get into CQB on the cheap, a CYMA tri-shot shotgun may be a good option to try the sport with since they're simple springers that fire three at once instead of oneI do agree that an AEG would probably be advisable over any other option for a first gun though, especially if you plan on playing outdoors or in an indoor field with longer engagement distances than a typical CQB field
>>73163>>73164>>73165>>73166Thank you, i've been looking for some time at an MP40 or a BREN that i could get for around 150 euro and either of those is probably gonna be my first buy as both are electric, full metal, and look really goodWhat's the deal with Bolt Action rifles? From pretty much all the retailers i've seen the spring ones are rather affordable (mainly looked at kar98 and mosin nagants), ranging from 150 to 250 euros generally, but the electric ones shot up to like 500 euros, which kinda sucks since from a purely coolness factor i find single shot wooden stock rifles a lot nicer
>>73165>I was at the field yesterday and I absolutely dominated with a generic rental aeg, but i would have gotten a lot more kills if i could shoot about 20 feet further.I don't see the issue here. High performance requires high cost and/or high maintenance. If you're not willing to put in the time or money to be at the cutting edge, then you settle for mid performance, which is what you're achieving. There's nothing wrong with that, be if you're asking "How can I fly as close to the sun as possible with no effort?", you're not going to like the answers.
>>73169>how do I pick out a gun that actually shoots something close to 400 fps wow what a hard question
>>73170It is. And like I said, you don't like the answers.
>>73168flat out forget historical bolt actions, airsoft bolt actions in general are way too expensive and suck and the selection for historical ones is much smaller and way more expensive due to the meme tax. If you want something WW2 your best choice is a thompson
>>73168mp40 are ok, the one i have is the AMG one. it only has 50 round mags there is a 300 round hicap but i never found it in stock, thompson are easier to come by and mags are 380 round stick mags or 500 drum mags
>>73174I'm not the one hung up and getting 400fps, and not a fps high or lower, or else I'll REEEEEEEEE!!!!1
>>73176It's not my thing you retard, my local field has a rule about it and i actually play instead of just jerking off to my toy guns (that's what real guns for, noguns)
>>73175Yeah the MP40 i was talking about is AMGWhat brand is your Thompson? The ones i found locally are from CYMA and KA
>>73178its the cyber gun/King arms one
>>73177>It's not my thing you retard, my local field has a rule about it and i actually playSo it *is* your thing. Thanks for confirming for absolute retard. No wonder you can't change a $5 spring.
>So it *is* your thing. Thanks for confirming for absolute retard. No wonder you can't change a $5 spring.
>>73169fps =/= better rangeget yourself something with 350 fps, change hop up bucking to one of the recommended ones and enjoy your range.
>>73184>350 fpstoo slow>change hop up buckingtoo much work
>>73185lol you are seething so hard that now you're pretending to be me. It's just a game, bro.
>>73185you could ask a friend to do that for you, but it seems like having one will be too had for you too.
>>73184explain how fps does not equal better range, because it literally is the fundamental basis for range.
>>73187>pretending to be me and then responding to yourself with a 'zinger' this generic and patheticholy shit you're a loser
>>73186I'm not pretending. That's literally your response to the suggestions above. We said settle for 350fps, you whined that it wasn't 400. We said change the spring, you said too much work, you wanted out-of-the-box performance with no effort.If you think I'm wrong, then tell us what your "real" response is to the 350fps/hop-up post?
>>73144https://www.lancertactical.com/product-page/lancer-tactical-m120-linear-pitch-airsoft-aeg-spring-385-410-fps. These are always close to 390
>>72894Bought a meme revolver just for that. Or just use my primary as usual because it shoots just under the limit for cqb
>>73144>How do I get as close to my local range's 400 fps cqb limit without going over?Have your tech fiddle with it until it is just below the joule limit. My CQB gun is still about .15J too hot for CQB and my field gun is, like, fucking .02J too hot for MSW 0ft rules. I'm just gonna shoot it a bunch until it wears in. My CQB is gonna need more rings clipped off the spring.
>>73190Lol you got caught and even admitted it. Yes, 350 FPS is too low if I can do better. I don't really like hop-up in general. This was my actual response >>73188
>>73198My field has a tech but who knows how long he'll take and what it will cost. It's hard to get good service in a niche interest like airsoft.
>>73201Get on a team.
>>73205Suit yourself, my techwork is free and I get stupid deals on kit.
>>73206I'm an adult and I'm happy to use a small part of my disposable income to avoid dealing with a team of faggots
>>73207I wont even try to argue that most of them aren't complete faggots, that's for true.In fact, I don't think I've seen a single other team, chapter, or other form of organization that wasn't. I must just be lucky.
>>73209Even if I liked them I still would rather play on my own or with a few friends unofficially, being on a team restricts you and being part of any organization is a real chore that extends beyond the activity itself.
>>73164>all that effort and he wears a literal rental mask with fucking mesh eyepro
>>73102We've seen bioBBs at the field that have swelled to like 3x sizeSo they do *something*
>>73215its an old photo i got better stuff now
>>73146All four CYMA ak rifles I've bought chronos 430fps
>>73216yeah, produce unexpected stoppages
Is CYMA a good brand for cheap guns? I'm the guy that asked about historical guns earlier today and one of the local sellers (thanks to a discount since i'm a friend of one of his club members) could get me a Thompson for 90 euros which seems super cheap
>>73228They are fine budget bangers, plenty good for a starter gun.
>>73221i doubt it
>>73236My 74U shot fucking 1.55J out of the box.
Airsoft BBs are neatThey're like little teeny cue balls
>>73237That's not 430, that's ~410. I'd believe you if you meant each of them at some point fired one shot at 430 but 430 is the top of the range and that's usually way above the actual FPS of the gun. Plus just normal variance, all 4 wouldn't work that well.
>>70791Looking to get a wood AK airsoft gun and have a budget of about 650 bucks as my max. What brand of airsoft AK should I go for? Ive been playing for a few months with my starter G&G M4 but I really enjoy the AK style more.
>>72999>lighting a cigar with MAP gas
King Arms M1 any good?
>>73304You already have a working gun, don't bother. Use your money for something that matters.
>>73309Butane is a bastard gas
>>73315never used one, but if your the guy from yesterday that wants to start ww2 airsoft we said keep to AEG before going for spring/gas the thinhg about gas airsoft rifles is they require high maintance more than any aeg
>>73304LCT or CYMA
>>73323Nah I'm a differnt guy, I don't run any specific theme to my loadouts other than GBBs that look cool.Alredy running a rifle, SMG and a few pistols

I'm trying to put on a night game at my field, but I'm having trouble deciding on how to do team identification. During the day we just go off arm bands and typically if they are pointing the same direction as you they are on your team. For the night game however the game will play over the entire facility, not just one field. People will be moving around in all sorts of directions due to objectives.I can't really go off camo as this is just an extra game and can't really balance it. I was thinking reflective tape or arm bands, but I don't know if that would be too bright if hit by light. There are glow sticks, but again I don't know if that is too much.What have you all seen at pickup night games?
They tried out slap on led wristbands at my field but I don't know how it worked out
>>73420The most we've done was just tan vs green uniforms. Either it's a shit show of chasing ghosts or splinter cell elite tactical ops. Flashlights, NVGs, etc do help lots.
>>73420>>73427have you guys ever tried to get a bundle of pic related? They glow pretty bright and can change color I think
Why do I keep buying G3's, help.
>>73442It's cheap, simple and shoots well, what more can you ask for?
>>73420night games simply do not work
>>73449They don't break if you treat them right.
>>73455NTA but how do you treat an airsoft weapon correctly?
>>73455Yes they do. Airsoft guns are sensitive pieces of shit and are not meant to last forever like real guns, that's why they can't be disassembled without going through a collosal pain in the ass
>>73443Quality and not feeling like a plastic pos
>>73448thisdone it once and never againyou think a flash light is a good idea - it isn't, it's a death sentence when you turn it on
>>73427While this is what I would like to do I cant really go off uniforms. This is just an extra game, and the people who play at my field are just looking to have fun.>>73437I have been looking at those and other led lights>>73448>>73475So the reason I am trying to put on a night game is that we play at a paintball complex. They have one field dedicated for airsoft, but the rest of the fields are for paintball. The airsoft field is about 3.5~4 acres, but the entire complex is 12. So for us to have a large game that plays across all the fields we have to either play at night when there are no paintballers, or setup and organize an event to reserve the entire field and up costs to cover lost revenue from no paintballers.
>>73477I don't think the cost savings for a night game renting the entire field will be there. If it were me I would just try to get a few of the paintball courses for they day rather than the whole thing at night, the costs would probably be about the same and you would get more people I think. sure its not the whole 12 acres but it would still give you some freedom for bigger games.
>>73477That's a cool idea. My second game ever was a night game at a CQB training facility for the army. The plastic armbands wrapped themselves into thin threads so halfway into the game we were shouting at people for what team they were on or walking straight into enemies.
>>73496Also what really helped was the fact that there were streetlamps providing light down the center of the cqb town.
>>73497Me on the right needing a poo mid-game, but not wanting to admit to this human frailty.
>>73460I don't fucking know, don't treat it like a real gun. It's a toy that'll break if you fall on it. If you put a ridiculous spring inside and don't maintain it, it'll break. It's all pretty common sense.
>>73490We can rotate on and off the paintball fields through the day, and coordinate it with the refs. This is more about just wanting to play across a bigger field then normal. As for costs, if we play after normal hours its around $10 a person, if we have to rent the field its around $200. Im honestly leaning towards trying to get my hands on a shit load of cheap of those cheap solar power garden lights and sprinkling them around the field, and then wrapping high reflect tape around peoples arms for Team ID.
>>73510Shit like this is why I didn't even blink at the cost of my LCT. Shit can actually take a fucking knock or two, but I'd pay $800 for one that performs exactly the same but can actually take appreciable fucking abuse. The stock latch for one is still made of smelted hotwheels and it pisses me off.
>>73437The indoor field I go to uses them for low light games. They make it pretty obvious what team you're on but glow so bright that you can sometimes see where someone is just from the reflected glow on walls and barricades.I couldn't find any proper photos so here's a screenshot from a video.
>>73525You put me in that shit and I'm strapping every light I have to the front of my rifle and burning peoples fucking retinas out.
>>73526Who diddled you, anon?
>>73537Nobody, that's just my idea of fun.
>>73463>t. gorilla hands
>>73477I've played night games maybe a couple times. They totally suck if you're not absolutely prepared. The only people who will have fun are those who have actual NVG.You need something that will level the field for everyone. Obvious solution is lights everywhere. Maybe blinking armbands, chem lights strapped to barrels, something that can negate NVG.
>>73511Not sure how much light you would get out of dinky solar lights. Borrow a generator or two and mount some leds on posts to them.
How many games per month do you guys typically go during the cold season? Are there any indoor arenas near you? There's none in my country anymore and if there will be no coof restrictions I think I'll go to 1-2 games per month.
>>73545>How many games per month do you guys typically go during the cold season?If i can every week. There are only games on sundays where i live. There used to be a indoor field that did games on wednesdays, but it's been closed for a while now, and it was the only one i knew that existed
>>73420Ive done the glowy IFF things, but different colored chem lights on the chest or arms is the cheapest and easiest solution for larger groups where the budget for the arm bands is a bit much
>>73545Once a month. Maybe twice during the cooler months (In AZ/UT/NM)
>Local restocked TM pistols this week>The one I wanted was sold out immedaitelyAh fuck.
>>73627Why do you want an underpowered pistol with fragile mags?
Are there any good channels to watch where they have good clear video that isn't all shakey or corrupt, and crisp audio, of clean competitive play, but without trying to shill you their personal brand of over priced gear?
>>73657Don't watch airsoft videos at all.
>>73645All the ones I've had so far have been great and the power isn't an issue when my country limits everything but snipers to 350fps on .2s
>>73645>why do you want the best?Keep coping with your jUsT aS gOoD copies
>>73686No, I just use the better ones. The only thing TM makes better than everyone else is fawning weebs. Unless you can time travel at will to 2011, I guess. Which is cool and I totally am jealous of you if that is the case
>>73721>better ones>The only thing TM makes better than everyone else is fawning weebs
>>73721I thought TM still made the best ootb pistols. What are the better brands now?
Is Cyma's AK47 s a good starter aeg? I wanna get started and it's really calling to me
>>73723I've owned 3, 1 Hi Capa and 2 1911s. They're simply not worth the money and extremely unreliable if you live and play anywhere dry and with sand. The rings in the mags will go out in under a dozen uses, no matter if you run green gas or MAP. The slide action gets anemic fast and the parts get loose when you start pushing stronger gases. I dunno if they're just forgetting to fold their slides 100 times or properly anoint the o-rings in anime tears, but shit's been "meh" for a decade nowWE-Techs hold up better, while not being as consistent in terms of FPS or RPS. KWA is all around better and even King Arms' Predator series are all around more solid. Hell, even Umarex has caught up because their glocks are pretty decent
>>73730>Umarex Glocks>decent>fucking KWAtake a look at this fucking retard >WEs hold up betterWEs are pos. t. has we Glock 17 and 2 M4 gbbrs
>>73731I see you get all your info from YouTube comment sections and Reddit. Truly a PhD in BB
>>73728Cyma aks are great cheap beginner guns although they tend to shoot 430 fps wich is too hot for my field so the spring needed changing.Personally I prefer the VFC clones listed here >>71606
Cant wait to start this hobby!
>>73728Never buy a cheap gun that does not have fixed stock. That wobbles a fucking lot and is not durable.
>>71773Alright it arrived just now. Absolutely beautiful. Pretty much the same weight as the real deal. Controls are as close to real as you could hope for. Safety is slightly too mushy. It got better with little use, so we'll see. Also lacks the decocker, but Beretta does make models that don't decock, so i can pretend it's that. Surface finish is close enough. You can't really make aluminium look like steel more than this. I noticed the hop-up adjustment works the opposite to what the manual says. It seems the picatinny rail doesn't meet the standard. Anyway first impression is pretty great. I hope it will be durable.
>>73809>spring shotgun primary...you like life on hard mode dont you
>>73809low effort post...
>>73833Nothing wrong with a shotgun, just on how you use it. Especially when it makes the spray and pray speedballers mad.
>>73809Make 100% sure the gas mask goggles are able to resist airsoft BBs. I recommend shooting it a few times up close, if any sort of scratch or crack appears don't use it>>73880Shotguns can be super good but they are much harder than a basic rifle or hi-cappa (assuming your indoors, if outdoors you are fucked)
>>73883>Shotguns can be super good but they are much harder than a basic rifle or hi-cappa (assuming your indoors, if outdoors you are fucked)It's all about holding proper angles. I watched some guy take about five or six random twelve year olds with springers, placed them in good positions, had them watch very good angles, and they managed to absolutely mangle about twice their number in speedsofters. I couldn't fucking breathe I was laughing so hard.
>>73900this, proper tactics will always win no matter what kind of guns are involved.
>>73833I'll 1v1 you, you can use anything you want, I'll use only a Nerf Jolt.
>Japan:>Echigoya>Probably the most accessible Japanese airsoft shop. Specializes in Tokyo Marui. Ships internationally.>go to website>Ctrl+F "Engrish" - results>Translate site to english>Ctrl+F "Shipping" "Postage" - no relevant results.Nice
How do I know which Tokyo Marui guns have "Tokyo Marui Next Gen Recoil System" in them? Googling give strange results.
>>74003Do they really ship internationally? I just skimmed through the Japanese page and I can't find anything about shipping outside of Japan. >>74007Tokyo Marui lists all their products on their homepage. It's in jap but you can at least see the pictures. https://www.tokyo-marui.co.jp/products/electric/nextgeneration/
>>74012the sticky says they ship internationally, but i also didn't found anything about that on the page, so i made a post
Does anyone make a metal version of these spring powered granades? They're good, but I feel like the plastic is too flimsy, and I'd like a metal version that I could really huck a long distance without worrying about it breaking.
>>74032>Long distance throwing of heavy metal objectsGreen gas is also a piss poor propellant, so you should use actual explosives, too.
>>74086well that sound kinda based, got any reciepe on those?
>>74095Not this time, government man
>>74086>>74032>>74095>>74101Stop being poor and buy pyro.

>>74137I just like that they're reusable, and really easy to use.
>>71151Guy's name is Cole N, and he's the infamous perpetrator of that "twix and alex magdumping" incident that you may or may not have heard of. Dude acts hard as fuck in real life and all of his videos, but he's really a soft, lily-livered faggot. Most of his victims are literal kids and teenagers who'll back down from an aggressor, but if you call him out on his bullshit and challenge him to an actual physical altercation he starts backpedaling VERY quickly, especially if you're bigger than him and actually work out, because he's just some dyel faggot rich kid who can't fight for shit. Literally the only reason he acts hot is because his mommy bought him an expensive polarstar that hurts like fuck, so he knows when it comes to outshooting you, his gun performs hotter than any other gun on the field. But if you take the airsoft gun out of the equation and tell him to fight you one on one, he knows he's powerless and starts st-st-st-stuttering and making up excuses like "W-What? you're gonna fight me over a GAME, bruh? Haha...j-just keep playing, bruh, s-shut the fuck up haha. It's j-just a game, bruh! Haha..."Guy needs to be socked in the mouth a few times in order to realize some people don't put up with that shit; unfortunately he's good at picking out weakness and generally doesn't fuck with people he knows will fight back.
>>74297Bang 22 extreme then. I use green cartridges for airsoft and yellows for post hurricane booby traps
>>74315wait, who is he in the twix and alex incident? Is he the guy who got shot first?
What radio/walkie-talkie do you guys recommend? I don't need extreme performance, I just need something cheap that will allow me to communicate with my fellow teammates. I live in Europe, so some products might not be available to me.
>>70792Yes, all the time. Set your hop correctly, zero your optic/sights well and practice getting a sight picture quickly. It will give you an edge over people who have to waste their first shot or two figuring out where their gun is pointed.
Fellas, my gf wants to try airsofting and I need some help. First of all, she has really thin skin and fields in my area allow 420 fps in cqb and up to 560 fps overall, so I need some ideas for full body protection that also wouldn't be too hot and look at least somewhat authenticSecond, she has bad eyesight(-3) and can't wear contacts, so I need some form of eye protection that will work with her prescription glasses.I also don't want to spend too much money on all that, in case she doesn't like the game
>>74923Baofeng radios are popular in my region, people say they're good for the price
>>75738I find when I bring new folks that are a little touchy a plain carrier with soft plates does the trick.For eye protection, look for rated goggles with and OTG designation. That said, for some specific models:- Rothco OTG Ballistic goggles- Pyramex Capstone- Valken Paintball helmets- Valken VSM goggles (I swear these are just rebrands of the Pyramex ones)- ESS desert locusts - I find some issues with my wider framed glasses, but they are OTGYou might come across the TM Pro Mask with the fan (usually also a face shield). From what I recall these are not ballistic rated - not a prob in Japan since they are generally lower velocity but assuming you are elsewhere consider the risks.If she ever decides to go all in, I recommend also getting the ExFog kit. Will save annoyance in the long run.
I like being on the opposite team of sweats and mega larpers and gunning for only them so all the teens or casuals can have fun shooting each other.
I Lowkey rly want to clone this but have never ran an ak before, any suggestions what to use as a base? Also for the hand guard? Slk ion seems nice but is 220$ for just a handguard ;-;
Heyo guys! My A&K Masada ACR is coming in the mail on Wednesday, but my body armor is coming tomorrow to bide me sometime. I've heard that the hopup is pure garbage and proprietary. I was wondering whether to get the Wii-tech hopup or the Matrix CNC hopup instead. Also, is there any suggestions for budget barrels specifically? It'll be a later upgrade, though. The hopups cost a pretty penny, but I heard it extends the range pretty well since it isn't poopoo.
