I might've posted instructions before in some thread, maybe gear thread #1.

They're tanker NVGs. as such, they feed direct from a T-72 using some proprietary two prong adapter. You can rig wires and your favourite connectors to them to mount any battery you want. I use a 7.4V airshit lipo.

Battery voltage is a non issue. There's a fuckhuge transformer in the set taking care of it.

You need to add a basic mechanical on/off switch though - there's no switch on the NODs, it's in the tank normally. When battery is connected, they're always on.

I mounted mine to the rhino arm with this basic solution:
1. remove PNVs from mount
2. mount using zip ties
3. ????
4. profit

Original plan was to mount them to the rhino arm by wedging the forks between the tubes and drilling a screw through both the thing connecting the tubes and the rhino arm, but I found rhino arm to be too wide for this. Norotos INVG could work I think, but that#s a bit too expensive solution for NVGs like these.

Im probably gonna leave em on the mount, and get a decent helmet to screw that metal frame thing into.
The guy modded a button on them that acts as a momentary switch.
As long as the button is pushed juice flows to the NODs. It works but it's annoying having to keep hitting the button every 2 mins or so to restart the Intensifier tubes. They keep intensifying for a min or two after power is taken away.

Ok. So Im gonna rig for 7.4 lipo and switch. Baller.

Same here bro. But you know what this means? It means that in the field, you are doing work. Your either moving, hiding, shooting, or doing something which means your doing more for the team than standing around with a serious look on your face taking pot shots.

It's more of a fun homage than straight up cosplay+paintball.

Multicam seems like the most effective thing, and I intend to not spray paint.

I've played a few times, a few years ago, with a Tippmann 98 Custom with flatline barrel and some old crossbow scope. When I played the way I saw others playing, I got lit the fuck up. When I played how I wanted, I was able to force a few people to surrender and "snipe" a few others, although it was far from "One Shot One Kill." It was more like 5-shots-oh-fuck-i-think-he-knows-where-i-am-better-move.

First Strike rounds seem to make sniping more feasible however, and by that I mean worthy of the term.

I used pimpmygun to make an approximated visual representation of what it'll probably end up looking like, with everything possible attached. I wouldn't usually use that foregrip+flashlight, but the option being available seems like a good idea.

The 45 degree mount was from when I planned on an RIS rather than an MOE.

I might not use the cheekpad either, we'll see how it fits with my mask on when it's raised by being mounted on the carrying handle. The reason I wanted that is so that I can use ironsights for regular paint and the scope for FSR without having to fuck about with it too much if I wanted to switch , and I'll zero them at whatever the farthest I can get consistent with both regular paint and FS rounds is.

If you guys have any experience or opinions on First Strike rounds, Tiberius Arms, or can tell me how to not look like a tryhard faggot on the field I'd really appreciate it.
>> No. 6372 ID: 364eb0
>>3410

Ditch the vertical foregrip, the magwell grip, the scope, and cheek pad. You'll never use 'em effectively and they'll end up being dead weight.
>> No. 6373 ID: 86d321
>>3411
I tend to hold my Mini 14 with my elbow braced in the sling, hand in the corner of the magazine and the handguard when standing, and I thought a magwell grip would make that easier. Does it have no appreciable effect? Wasn't too hot on it in the first place.

Vertical grip's gone too.

Why wouldn't I use the scope though, if I were using First Strike rounds? They increase the range to about 300-400 from what I've heard, with 1/5 the strike zone. I heard as much talking to as many people with experience with them as possible. They said things like "In my experience, ironsights are good enough but an illuminated crosshair, low magnification scope, 2-4x, is perfect. A red-dot type is faster to aim with, but it's less accurate and will reduce your effective range by a bit, because FSR tends to maintain their velocity as well as their trajectory to the point where regular paintballs are barely comparable. Occasionally you'll get one that's deformed though, and it'll corkscrew off in some crazy direction."

Another said he rarely makes a hit with one. He's a pistol-user, T8.1, and brought 1 magazine of FSR, 8 rounds, and 3 magazines of regular .68 for the match. He said "When they do work, you can make a shot from 400 feet away sometimes. The problem is: mine seem not to work. Don't rely on them as your primary. They're a gimmick."

I'm going to use a scope, and if I can get a cheekpad that'll make it easier to use I'll use it too, unless you can provide counterpoints. How would it get in the way?

Quick info:
I won't be able to play until sometime after March 2014. I'm going to boot camp for the Navy in December, Nuclear A-School afterward. I'm 6ft 1 and 238, I can handle an extra couple pounds of stuff on the rifle, so "dead weight" is a nonissue.

I don't want something useless on it, but a scope of that type seems damned useful, especially with ironsights also able to be used.

Thanks for the advice!

In addition, there are lots and lots of really sharp snipers testing a plethora of things that have an impact on accuracy. ... Similarly, there has been some testing of the velocity swings seen in the Tiberius/Lapco rifled barrel and some speculation on why that happens and how it can be fixed.

Some of you may be thinking, "Hey, my scope already has mil-dots and I can do some of that kind of thing." You'd be right. These crossbow scopes just make it easier. Afterall, they are designed for projectiles that travel from around 260-400 FPS. Sighting in the Hawke XB30 scope was the easiest sight-in process I have ever gone through.

Ok man. Here's the thing, your posts would indicate you're trying to get into paintball, but then you post >>3410. Which is clearly an AR, which would indicate airsoft. Furthermore, why in fuck's name would you want to have a scope mounted on the carry handle irons in the age of flat top uppers? You're clearly not going for retro. I guarantee that build will cause you problems and be poop.

Judging by your description of how you shoot your Mini, I'd say put this whole thing on hold and go through boot. Even Navy boot should teach you how to properly shoot. Not to harp on you too much guy, but you're making rookie mistakes. Hang around opchan for a while, see what works and what doesn't. Approach this project again in 2014. You'll thank me.


That said, I've heard great things about first strike rounds, but not past 100M.
>> No. 6377 ID: 86d321
To explain the appearance of the marker:
It's a T15 from Tiberius Arms, a 1:1 AR15-based marker compatible with 100% of milspec AR15 furniture. I plan on getting an AR15, and I wanted to have it help with familiarity with the platform, in addition to it being slightly relevant to my job.

For the scope being on top of the receiver, which I understand your incredulity about:
○ I wanted the ironsights and scope to both be elevated and in-line with the barrel, so that with a facemask on I am more easily able to use the sights despite having a stock
○ That sight picture is very similar to the one I've used since I was 7, on the very Mini 14 I've got on my bed right now, about to get cleaned
○ I like carrying handles, but mostly it's for the reasons stated above. If I want to use sights effectively, I need them raised off of the receiver. Back when I used a Tippmann 98 Custom with a flatline barrel and an old crossbow scope during those few games I played a few years ago, of woodsball, it was hell trying to use either sight because the concept of a cheek-weld is thrown out the window when you're using a cheap Walmart mask shaped like a damned Decepticon's face.

In regard to how I hold the rifle in a standing position:
The AR15, if you don't have a free-floated barrel, has its accuracy negatively affected holding it the "proper" way, by a severe degree, but holding it by the magwell or using the magazine as a "monopod," if that's a thing, affects it very positively.

The reason I've held it that way this long may be due to ignorance of the "proper" form, unfamiliarity with rifles, and lack of training as you've implied, but doing this gives me an aim that simply doesn't jitter even a little. I cannot discern even a centimeter of movement, as opposed to holding it with my hand forward on the rifle's handguard which, while faster to switch targets, has discernible jitter like Resident Evil 4's point of aim.

The reason I began aiming that way is that, on my first day using this rifle when I was about 7, I was at a range with my grandpa. Rather early into the use of it, I burned my hand twice and got my pinky caught in the bolt's forward motion, cutting me.

I held the rifle directly under the action, right in front of the magazine, and my hand was safer but I experienced an increase in recovery time for getting back on target. I corrected that by holding the corner that I said earlier, the 90 degree spot between the magazine and the rifle, and since it was feeling heavy and I was tired by that point I put my elbow into my side. The result was a stance that was fast to get back on target, didn't chop up my hands because I barely knew what I was doing, and also allowed for a bit of a steadier aim.

As I got older and bigger, my arm happened to fit perfectly in the sling, bracing my elbow into it drew it taut and pins my hand into the spot described earlier. In addition, I found I could reload almost twice as fast, and when holding it that way with my arm braced I barely moved from the recoil and didn't jitter worth a damn no matter how long I spent at the range or held the rifle "at the ready."

It's just how I've always shot. It feels very strongly as though it severely increases my performance in every way, every other way I've tried to learn feels clumsy in comparison in at least one regard. If there's an even better way of doing it that you could teach me, I'll be your best friend, man, but as it is the "proper" way feels like it's slower, less steady, and less "strong," although that last one is probably placebo. I read once that users of the Thompson SMG felt similarly during a fight due to the significant weight of the weapon, it felt "more like they had something in their hands."

I am a complete novice, and one major reason I'm going into the Navy is the training. The T15 isn't even out yet, and I planned on doing the purchasing about March 2014, after I've received that training and gotten some money.

Can you please go further into detail about what "rookie mistakes" I'm making? I'm afraid I don't see what you mean, and if it's something that'll disprove 14 years of thinking I'm learning correctly it's something I need to unfuck before someone gets hurt. I don't want to be "one of those guys" that shoots himself or another in the foot or something.

Also, to be clear, I'm not really gripping the magazine and pulling it down like a forward grip, I'm not trying to cause a feeding malfunction. Only my pinky and the bottom most rim of my palm is actually wrapped around the magazine, very lightly. The rest of my hand is on the wooden section, nearly under the charging lever on the bolt.

Here's a dark, blurry, terrible picture taken with a broken webcam showing what I mean.

I didn't even know about the T15, which goes to show how long I've been out of paintball. My apologies for the asshattery, but I've seen kids do similar things for all the wrong reasons. Perhaps I read too quickly. You should still ditch the light grip and mag well grip, but I'd say try out a vert grip.

Mm, thanks for the advice, I'll check it out. Never tried one before. Would you recommend a fixed one or a folding one? What about a bipod that has a section that functions as a foregrip?

You didn't come across as an asshat, you were trying to prevent me from making a mistake, which I appreciate. You also followed that with advising me to hang around. You weren't kissing my ass, but you were encouraging me to learn and gave advice. Pretty far from asshattery, man.

I've created a new, more accurate approximation of the build. The way I see it, here's my ideal after considering you guys' advice:

16" rifled barrel
No faux silencer, but a flash hider to cover the threads and look nice I guess
Full MOE handguard
Aluminum rail sections
One of two variations of forward grip, a folding vertical or that slanty one that seems close to the angle I use when holding my Mini 14 that gives me such stability
M16 carrying handle ironsights zero'd for maximum flat "accurate" .68 range
M16 carrying handle rail
Hawke XB30 1.25-4x30mm illuminated cross-hair scope

Or I could go full boogaloo.

I'm leaning towards the top one. More slanted forward grip there seems less likely to catch on shit, and like I said earlier it's close to the angle of my hand on my Mini 14.

Thanks for putting up with my verbose bullshit by the way.

It was run not even half-assed but quarter assed.

Game was heavily biased towards the Russian side, due to the placement of the spawns once they took the AO they could hold it with a minimal force since our only way back into the city was to cross a 1/4mi open field where as they only had to cross a street to be in the MOUT.

Add to that rampant cheating and constant rules changes and inept referees and you get a game that was an absolute disaster for what it cost us to attend (200 Game Fee, 18hr Drive + Gas/Tolls from NY, Hotel, New Kit etc....)

I never lose my cool on the field and I did at night, exchanged hits at less than five feet, I gave a processional double tap (and watched the BBs hit) he BLAZED into me, I called the hit while he didn't. As I'm calling hit, he sweeps to shoot our embedded report then returns and hits me again while I'm fixing my dead rag, I SCREAM hit and move to turn my dead light on when he drills two shots into my palm and thumb.

At that point I lost it, my screams were heard through out the MOUT.

Hi from Sweden. Just going with whatever gear is the most suited for the job. M90 is fucking insanely great at concealing you in the summer. This was taken during spring, before everything was really in bloom. On top of that, this was the part of the field with the least amount of pines/spruces.

Ditched the gloves for some fingerless oakley pilot ripoffs. Added an 4.3 to the loadout. Painted the gun (Suprisingly got the color extremely close to that of the AK5, wasn't even going for that), got rid of frontpost and got a reddot reflex. Now also using C-mags. Looking for something to carry them with since my current vest isn't modular but works great for stanags.

Same here, I've found some in either dubious condition or obscenely expensive.

I've been trying to get in contact with a company in the UK that sells a version in BDU cut. However they don't do sales to anyone who'se not a dealer. Hopefully they'll point me in a direction to get one, if they do I'll put that forward. However, I don't know what the price would be with shipping included for a full set.

However, the expensive option seems to be available on ebay for about $120USD. http://www.tacgear.de/produkte/clothing.php

Röda Stjärnan. They should ship internationally. Hush hush.

I have the BDU cut pants. The buttons are shit. They strain against me when I crouch. My brother has the real pants. They're much more comfy.

They make other versions of the M90. The more expensive ones are likely better than the original in terms of keeping you warm and breathing out sweat instead of soaking it up.

About them being in dubious condition though... the ones for sale are sorted out by the military. Mine were sorted out because of corroded zipper and buttons. A bit of silicon oil fixed it, it works perfectly fine.

I feel sort of divided telling someone how to actually look like a Marine but here goes.

Top down.

Use black safety pins to keep the cat eyes attached to your kevlar.

Put your dump pouch and excess mag pouches on a patrol/war belt or your flak. The only thing you'd ever really mount to your trouser's belt would be like a knife if you really wanted to. Speaking of trousers, you might take some heat because black is the highest MCMAP belt a Marine can obtain sans the tabs.

Kinda funny actually, I built the new MP5 (The Chest Rig) kit with the idea of being a wee bit more high speed, because I realized the heavier G3/AK kit (RRV) was pretty fucking high drag low speed - kinda too much stuff to lug around for skirmish purposes. So I got the lightest chest rig I could find, a submachinegun, and a few mags. A radio pouch, a dump pouch, and sometimes, a hydration pack (Emdom USA vehicle carrier, two liters to cut more weight) as extra bonuses making life easier.

But this time, I decided to slap on some extra shit for shits and giggles, ruining the whole idea - helmet instead of a beanie, backpack instead of a hydration pack, and even the gas mask hanging off the side impractically and getting into shit.

It also worked as a test run for a future stalker event kit - I've been to them before, but in them I used a G3 and a leg panel (+ Eagle duty belt + HSGI suspenders worn under clothes), and as such, never tested the backpack and the chest rig at the same time. Though, I admit, the test run was an afterthought. The gas mask hanging off is not that impractical in stalker - at least in them I don't dive or crawl exactly too much.

But yeah, I admit, slapping all that extra gear on was pretty stoopid, pissing on the whole purpose of HSLD. I can take a pic of the gear when how it's worn normally, if interested, though.

Nah, it's just Canadian retailers being total gouging fucks. It's a pain for individuals to do importing (guns have to shoot over 366fps with .2g BBs), so the importers/retailers we've got crank the prices to absurd levels.

I just got done using the SA VAL at LC. It's a very solid gun, the only thing that held me back really was only having 50 round magazines which made it hard to return fire on people running polarstar guns with high RPS and 200 round magazines. Also anyone that held it always bitched it was too heavy. Out of the box it was very accurate.

I was at LC too, saw you a couple times teehee. I held the AS VAL at the Fox Airsoft booth, and fell in love. I knew as soon as I saw the booth I had to see if they had it, sure enough they did. If I have any money left over this summer from my Moscow trip I am getting one. I didn't think it was too heavy at all, and after all if you're using a sling one shouldn't complain about weight. I used to complain about rifle weight until I started using a TM FAMAS, and I hated how light and toyish it was.

I guess if you don't like the furniture which is as good as any furniture I've seen on most real guns, that's your problem. You just seem to be bitching for no reason.

I don't usually post in airshit threads (or much at all anymore), but I thought I would pop in here to make a couple of points about the ASVAL and the vintorez:

1) they are only popular because they've been in video games where their performance is vastly overstated. It's the same thing that happened with the P90 before operators found out that it was worthless in actual combat rather than being a miniature death ray with a bottomless magazine. Think of the ASVAL/Vintorez as a tweaked version of the old MAC-10 supressed subguns, equipped with a decent shoulder stock and a scope. Or think of it as a 300 BLK AR, only with worse accuracy, worse suppressor design, worse ergonomics, worse ballistics, etc.

2) The baffle design is shitty for the 1930s, let alone the 21st century. It's obviously a very loose design meant to be cheaply manufactured, shot with dirty ammo, cleaned frequently and then hastily assembled by morons- all without the risk of baffle strikes. You can have all those things on a suppressor, but the performance will suck. And it does.

3) If the russians cheaped out so much on every other aspect of the gun, why is anyone surprised that the furniture is cheap crap? Every combloc gun I've owned over the years either had a) US plastic, b) awful commie plastic c) awful commie wood (that cleaned up nicely after about a week of sandpaper and staining). The russians have a proud history of making weapons that barely work but continue to barely work no matter how badly you abuse them. On the other hand, it took them nearly half a century to figure out how to make bakelite in colors other than bright orange and purple.

4) It would be ironic if the airshit copy was better than the real gun.

>P90 before operators found out that it was worthless in actual combat

The P90, airshit or real, is a great weapon if used correctly. Its a submachine gun like an MP5 or Uzi, maybe with a bit more reach but still in the same class. Its not a replacement for an M4 and using it as such is not recommended.

Some asshole out on the field rocking a P90 and trying to compete with a M4, SCAR, AK, or G36 in airsoft at longer ranges rarely does all that great. Close quarters on the other hand is where pretty much every time a P90 or an MP7 or a MP5 tend to do far better then a long gun.

And IRL the P90 is pretty much the same. Not some super operator uber gun but a close in submachine gun. Its a weapon for select circumstances, not just a general weapon anymore then a MP5 is and of course it has inferior performance to an assault rifle. But as a light weight submachine gun its bretty good.

Using it as just a duty weapon to carry around a shoot baddies like a soldier would an assault rifle is foolish just the same as it would be trying to take a Remington 700 into a CQB SWAT type room clearing situation. Not what its made for.

>1) they are only popular because they've been in video games where their performance is vastly overstated.

Actually most of the people I know that are buying the VAL and VSS are people that do FSB MVD and Russian infantry kits, we're not all CoD kiddies


>2) The baffle design is shitty for the 1930s, let alone the 21st century.

[citation needed] Also what does this have to do with the airsoft version?

>3) If the russians cheaped out so much on every other aspect of the gun, why is anyone surprised that the furniture is cheap crap?

It sounds more like you had a shitty AK of random origin that you accredit being "Russian" do to it being a AK platform. Again, what does this have to do with the airsoft version?



>4) It would be ironic if the airshit copy was better than the real gun.

Actually do to an "airshit" replica being made by one small Asian company in small lots instead of by several factories mass producing them it wouldn't be that ironic, but sadly most "airshit" barely comes close to their real counterparts when it comes to reliability and quality.
>> No. 6527 ID: 863b0d
My original point was that the actual russian gun is a cheap piece of shit but people are getting angry because the airsoft version has cheap looking furniture.

I don't own any airshit. I own a few high end AKs and a saiga-12, in addition to a bunch or ARs and other stuff. From my own personal experience, I feel that a high end AK is still worse than a mid-tier AR, mostly due to the quality of ammo available (which is a real issue if you shoot it). I think the stories of ARs being unreliable are bullshit, mostly due to people doing sloppy builds or buying awful magazines for bottom dollar. And AR >>>> AK ergonomics. Another issue is that unless you have a completely shit lower, almost any problem in an AR can be fixed by swapping parts using hand tools. With an AK, you need a hydraulic press. And I'm a former AK fanboy.

My comments on the vintorez mainly come from having seen it disassembled and knowing a shitty baffle design when I see one. Yes, I own a whole bunch of suppressors as well.

Eh, was trying to make a rookie stalker kit. Not all stalkers have Sunrise Suits or SEVA suits - see Cordon. Though I wouldn't say all were cheeki breeki - only around 1/3 of the players had chemically protective equipment of any kind.

As a side note, the gas mask in the later pics is not the AR10, but a Finnish M/61 (copy of US M9A1) I got off from the Ecologists who themselves got it from a fallen Monolith - one of the keys we needed to find a way out of the region of the Zone we were trapped in.

I kinda agree actually - my main goal in the game was getting my character killed off, to leave the Zone, or to otherwise get closure for my character, so I could roll a new one. Instead, I ended as the Ecologists' trusted man, and in the end, was converted for Monolith. PRAISED BE THE HOLY CRYSTAL.

At least it gives me a basis for severe changes for my character. Thinking of making an exoskeleton arm, and carrying a severed arm as a trophy - the arm that that part of an exo was salvaged from. Also considering taking my NVGs to the game, but that would require a new helmet, as my current one is too tacticool, and I doubt I can remount them back to the tanker cap.

Note that in this game series Monolith are less of dull shells determined to defend the Crystal, but more of batshit insane people determined to defend the Monolith.
