I've shared my thoughts on that since that question gets asked a bunch of times in the existing paintball thread, because that thread is over a year old.

Meanwhile, I just walked into a mall recently and there's a shooting gallery where a jewelry store used to be utilizing airsoft rifles (with fabulous prizes!).

A Double Eagle SPAS 12 and a CYMA Sport M3 Super 90 CQB/Entry. They're just spring, the M3 can take an M4 adapter so you basically never have to reload, at the cost of it making the shotgun slightly less low profile. I kinda want a Jag Arms Reaper for some odd reason.

I think basically everyone who plays airsoft shares your pain. I used to think the Dye masks looked gay and paintbally, plus were overpriced, but since getting one I can finally play without any fogging.
I've tried a bunch of different goggles and shooting glasses with and without masks and they've all fogged at some point.
Tl;dr if you can afford it and you're willing to look a little gay get a Dye mask.
>>98515
This didn't work for me, it's one of the better set ups I've had but it fogged on me in the end anyways. Maybe works better if you don't live in a place with high humidity.

It's fine. I don't use it that often. I wear it like a pistol for backup. I'm trying to move away from gas systems. They're fine in the beginning, but over time, they get leaks and suddenly, it's questionable when your backup will fire when you need it to several hours in.

But then again, they don't make a 6-shot slamfire AEG.

Went and played with my Type 89 for the first time for a day. It's alot of fun to shoot. Now a problem I've run into is the follower attached to the piston is damaged and fails to pick up the next BB in the magazine.

Come to find out I should be loading Japanese specification BBs that are a little smaller in diameter than normal 5.95mm match grade bbs. The tighter fit of the 5.95mm on the feed lips of the magazines damages the follower when it tries to push them out. Wish I'd known before, now I'll just have to bend the follower back into place and wait for my order from Evike to arrive. Ideally I'll be able to replace the damaged part and never have to deal with it again if the BBs are to blame.

I feel you. When my friend started talking about Dye masks I told him I won't pay what is almost the price of a new gun to look like a fucking paintballer. Many frustrating games later I gave in though and I've never regretted it.
I still play historical games wearing only shooting glasses and that helps serve as a reminder of the constant suffering I used to endure.

The entire system consists of a battery powered fan which blows air through 2 tubes which are routed through the inside of the helmet and into the top of your goggles/glasses.

In the field I've used it around 5 times and it hasn't failed me yet.
So far this is the only anti fog solution that worked 100% of the time and is actually convenient in use.
>>
I've been looking to get into airsoft. Are there any viable shotguns?
>>
>>99333
Yeah, the fans I've tried that had the pressure to push air thru small tubes were noisy, so I quit at that point. Since you have it, is it really quiet, or do you still hear a BRRRRRRRRRR.....?

>>99362
--> >>98556
Or some frankenstein HPA M4-fed speedsoft gun.

Also, everyone who gets into airsoft always start as "I want a sniper gun!" or shotgun. Then they realize the error of their ways and get a normal rifle for most games, and maybe go back and try sniping with better expectations of what it's really like.

Spring airsoft is superior. Better for plinking do to lower power. You can reuse/get way more use out of your bbs and your targets.

Manufactures should focus on making full metal springier airsoft replicas. Different springs for match and power.

Focus on slide locking back on last shot.
>>
>>99408
>sping
>lower power
???
>>
>>99419
Spring pistols.

Right now most are cheap plastic they work well but full metal replicas would be much appreciated.

Don't want to buy gas or cO2 just want to plink with a spring.
>>
>>99408
There is no market for a detailed metal springer because people who are so cheap that they reuse BB's can't afford to buy it. Used BB's get deformed on impact, so a precision inner barrel is a no go. So an expensive springer that has no precision? The whole idea is bonkers.
>>
>>99379

i think you should first identity the type of shooting that most interests you.

for examples of engagements:


spring airsoft pistols are for target shooting in your backyard. 30-60 ft

spring airsoft shotguns are for shooting down a dog run at someone climbing your backyard's fence. 0-30 ft.

airsoft spring rifles are for shooting from your window at the butt of a juvenile mountain lion sleeping outside your neighbor's second story window. 60-120ft

adding an electric motor makes its utility more accessible.

making it gas powered makes its utility more accountable.

i imagine there are more creative ways to utilize airsoft in gameplay, but it is my personal belief spring powered airsoft are of no economics indoors. you will always get cornered. you will always be outpowered by a full auto airsoft.

brands of good economics:
cybergun
umarex

brands to look into:
ares
uhc
>>
>>99587
>cybergun
>umarex

These are just companies that hold licenses for FN and HK guns and pay other airsoft manufacturers to make them on their behalf with the brand.

Im in a predicament, im trying to import an AEG to Canada from the US from a private seller. I already contacted a local shop to handle the importation process. My problem is, the gun currently shoots 520fps because of some mods. If the CBSA were to test fire it and chrono it at 520fps, it would be classified a regulated firearm since the importable range is between 366 and 500. The box and manual say 430fps.

Just bought 16 acres in southern Arizona. Currently working with a few trailer parks to haul away some single wides to build a field. Grabbed a few old cars from a insurance auction. Trying to get a busted up CH-46 body as well. Shit is gonna be sweet, boys

Last game i played, in the middle of the match, my lct AK instead of firing when i pulled the trigger just did a sort of click. i pulled again and same thing. went to safe and then back to semi, same thing. only when i set it to full and then back to safe did it fire again, anyone have any idea what could be causing this and how i should go about fixing it?
>>

I don't even play airsoft but those cheater and fight videos are some of the best content I've ever seen in my life

I had the same issue with my CYMA AK74, a more powerful battery or hi torque motor will solve the problem.
>>
>>101721
>more powerful battery
hmm
i'm using a 7.4 because it doesn't have a mosfet, but a friend of mine uses a 11.1 lipo and had the same issue today... thanks though, i'll look into a new motor i think
>>
>>101629
Most aegs do that. Just switch to auto and fire a few shots and then back to semi.
>>
>>101629
did it happen when you were pulling the trigger too fast? if you try to fire before the gearbox makes a full rotation it can lock up. like what the other guy said, different motor could help, or better yet install a MOSFET and use 11.1v batteries. Switching to 11.1v made the biggest difference in my gun out of any upgrade I've done. here's what the difference sounds like

kinda out of the blue but does asg still have a discord? i used to be in it a couple years ago and i kinda miss it ;-;
>>
>>101629
Semi lock is a very common thing. I thought it mostly happened to EBBs though. Just fire it on auto for a second and it's usually good to go again
>>
what game modes do you guys like to play at fields? I'm running the games at my local field, and trying to come up with new things to play so things doesn't get stale. Right now we got TDM, Kill Confirmed, Domination, Bomb Defusal and VIP Escort.

I wanna start airsofting again and need a gun, this is my first gun since highschool so I want something nice. I want an Mp5k, is there a brand that’s like “the best”? I’ve heard src are super nice, but internals r mediocre. But it also seems like the internals are mediocre on every mp5k. So like I can upgrade it, but how do I find someone good to do the upgrades for me? I got screwed over by every tech I went to in the past :/ like idk, I have no clue how to approach getting a “best” quality gun
>>
>>101834
Cyma platinum, all i would do with is replace the CYMA mosfet with a perun if you want to run it on 11.1 lipo
>>
>>101835
Oh I forgot to say, this is for an outdoor field so range and accuracy is important. So like The 300 fps on that gun probably won’t cut it, I just assume I’ll need whatever I buy r-hopped and a longer barrel put in.
>>
>>101837
It's got a quick change spring, so you could just put in a bigger spring
>>
>>101841
Alright you convinced me lmao, bought one
>>
anons how do I know if certain parts will fit my gun?
I mean I want a brushless motor so probably new gears, piston, cylinder, piston head, cylinder head. I want a new inner barrel too but is only the length important to know if it fits?
I can't even find tutorials about it anywhere.
>>
>>101829
Everything has to be super simple. Randoms on teams just absolutely kills teamwork and coordination. I've seen VIP matches were you tell a teammate to watch the VIP so people can cover the doors/windows, and then literally turn back 5 secs later and the VIP is gone. Ask where the VIP went and you get shrugs.

Otherwise, that sounds like a decent list of game types.

>>101878
You read, watch and learn about your gun. Pay attention where they mention if something is xxx-compatible or proprietary (such as product reviews/breakdowns). That's literally it. This is also where local stores are nice as you can physically see and hold an item in your hands, and ask the sales/techs if an upgrade will fit. They won't sell you something if you're just going to return it the next day.
>>
>>101829
I love the game modes infected and snowball. Always a good time and a lot of action to end the day.
>>
>>101829
I think it depends a bit on the crowd, here most players aren't super serious milsimers so the mood is usually pretty light. One game mode that is fun but chaotic is a medic game where anyone can review a fallen team mate but the enemy can also capture them and make them part of their team. The team that ends up with the most players wins (if you even care about that).
Another stupid short game that is surprisingly fun is springer pistol only game. Here the fields usually have enough springer pistols for all players. Usually just plays out as a unlimited respawn game but you only have one mag so when you run out of bbs you're out. And of course this should be played on a small part of the field so it's basically non-stop (idiotic) action.
>>
whats a good gas blow back kalishnikov style rifle?
>>
>>101895
Yea that’s why I do the part of the VIP role, so I can encourage people to play the objective. It has worked fairly well so far
>>102004
That variation of medic game does sound pretty fun. I’ll give that a try next time
>>102007
GHK and nothing else.

Another game that's usually pretty fun is hostage rescue. The hostage can just be a mannequin or similar on a stretcher. One team plays defence and gets to hide the hostage (preferably there is some limitation to hiding places like inside structures only). The area where the defending team can operate should also be slightly limited so they can't spawn camp etc. Defenders have no respawn but can set up ambushes anywhere in the designated area. The rescue team has unlimited respawn but must go back to the base to respawn. When the rescue team gets the hostage to their base they win. If the time runs out the defenders win.

Anyone have experience with this? Was gonna get it for a sino viet war kit I was gonna do but the price is so suspicious and ive never had a gun from this brand

Why would anyone want a springer Dragunov?
>>
>>102220
A&K have been around a long time, they've never made great guns, but they're just okay. I think there are co2 conversions for those spring SVDs. I'd probably go with the Cyma AEG though (assuming LCT is too expensive).
>>
>>102220
the design is quite ancient, but if you get it to seal nicely and get airsoft pro hup up chamber, you'll have a decent springer. takes AEG style springs, barrels and hop up buckings. extended charging handle is a nice thing to get when you stuff sp170 into it.

Anyone here do action air? I wanna work towards practical shooting or our national equivalent sport and figure it would be a good and cheaper way to practice the fundamentals at the start since it's easier and cheaper to get into while waiting for a loicence and easier and cheaper to practice since you could just do it in your backyard. I've not held an airsoft gun in about 20 years but my main worry is that action air will just make me feel like an idiot when compared to shooting with real guns though I've heard the weight of at least the action air pistols is intentionally very close to the real guns and the simulated blow back does work at least a little bit to make it feel better.

Practical shooting but with Airsoft guns instead of real guns. Especially popular in Asia where getting a privately owned gun is practically impossible but also somewhat popular as a gateway to practical in countries with some gun laws that prohibit you from just walking to a store and buying one the moment you feel like it. It's under the IPSC just like actual practical shooting. It's probably not very popular in the US.

Go around with the lads or camp the objectives we already have majority of?
>>
>>101629
Semi lock. Common with guns that have version 3 gearbox. The piston sometimes gets in a spot in its travel where it won't move unless in full auto. Mosfet with cycle detection fixes it.
>>
>>102276
Only reason is to make it into a HPA.

Slowly started putting together a US Vietnam war-kit. Right now I can't decide if I should get a M16A1 or a "CAR-15". The CAR-15 has a special place in my heart but it doesn't really fit the US army regular-kit I'm aiming for.
>>
I hate green gas pistols and it’s cold af around here most of the time, r there any decent co2 pistols?
>>
>>102938
Oh I should not it’s just for a sidearm and I prefer subcompacts, in the past I’ve run like a tm detonics and a we mini m9
>>
>>101156
Honestly thermal isn’t THAT absurd, like thermal scopes generally start at 1-2k which is high cause they use flir boson modules that start around 1k. But anything that uses a lepton module can be like 3-600$ which would include thermal monoculars that should work quite well for spotting and setting up ambushes.

I’ve been theorycrafting a thermal setup to mount on the front of my rifle that would output to a monocular, scope, or wrist mounted monitor for a while which is why I’ve been researching this stuff lately lol
>>
>>102935
What do you care more about: your heart or your kit?

Also, is anybody really going to give you shit if you show up with a CAR-15?

Why not surplus a PC or buy some jpc clone from rotchco?
>>
>>102938
If you can find a CO2 mag that fits it will work in your green gas pistol. Or just get a HPA tap for your green gas mag and do that
>>
>>102935
youre already farbing out with everything on that helmet so you might as well throw the car in too
