    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Leon, I'd love to sell it to you but I'd rather sell it all as a package and get rid of my magazines as well. Thank you for buying half of my things!

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    I actually started out using two points and I hated them. Once I switched to single point slings I loved that design but I always wanted to be able to transition between single and two point sling configurations, so I bought the VTAC sling and was going to add sling mounting hooks that allowed me to use it as a MagPul sling. Though, when I attached it as I have it now in the pictures, I love the way it is and the quick adjust feature of the VTAC sling is fantastic. I've been running the sling like this for over a year and I am now using similar sling configurations on all my rifles. I still understand what you mean though. Nice rifle, I love the paint job especially!

    H&K Picture Thread

    This is my KWA MP7. I really like the way it feels and the way it looks. I also have a T-1 AimPoint and a PEQ-15 that I sometimes put on this, but those parts are usually on my M4, which you can view in the AR15 Picture thread if you'd like. The only things I have done to it is make a notch to allow the stock to be in a shorter position compared to the fully extended position, and added a replica MS3 sling, which is on par with the quality of the real MS3 sling. I've got the "CQB" Bolt, and the "Field" Bolt, and both work wonderfully. Even though the weight difference in the two bolts are easily noticeable, the rate of fire surprised me with the field bolt since it was incredibly fast. Yet, it's easy to control the amount of plastic you throw down range. Since I have a total of four 40rd magazines and one 20rd magazine, I can shoot quite a lot without a problem. It's an impressive and fun little gun. Excuse the flash in the pictures, I did not notice the flash until I uploaded the pictures and now it's too late to retake the photos.

    My VFC M4. It started out as a Knights SR-15E3 but I changed around a few parts. I love the way it looks, runs, and feels. Still, I've been thinking about letting it go to a new home, but perhaps not.

    Silenced Guns Picture Thread

    I've actually been thinking about selling both of them, I haven't even used the MP7 in a game. Both run beautifully though, and I love the way they look. I do put the T-1 AimPoint and the PEQ on the MP7 at times. And excuse the flash in the pictures, I did not notice it until I uploaded the photos.

    Well, I wouldn't necessarily say that Snigel Designs gear is not of high quality. Though, as you put it, their gear is not generally that "high speed" when compared to many other manufacturers. The plate carrier that Snigel has made is too complicated and over-designed, in my opinion. The main reason why the plate carrier was not widely fielded is because it does not meet the requirements of the average soldier, or it does more than the average soldier needs. On the other hand, groups like SOG are able to get ahold of kits that are generally better designed than the ones that Snigel have come up with. Of course, I do support the production of gear by a domestic company, but I am more interested in quality rather than where the gear was made.

    I have also seen it in a few pictures though I do not know much about them in terms of official statements regarding the issuing of the plate carrier. I do believe that it was first introduced as a piece of kit for trials when the military was trialling new gear. After that, I have been told that a number of the ones used in the trials were kept by troops, a few more were issued, and some were purchased privately. Of course, I do not claim this to be the facts, it is simply what I have heard about it from others, even from people in the Swedish military... But take it with a pinch of salt. Hopefully someone else is able to enlighten us about it. It's not "Sniegl," it's actually "Snigel," which means "Snail." I do not know if it was intentional or just a typo, but it helps other forum members if they want to search for the company's products.

    The problem about trying to source a Stridsväst 2000 is just that, they're very expensive because they are very rare. It's a piece of kit that troops are required to return to their respective armory, along with many other parts of their issued kit. Only a few items are considered to be expendable and replaceable without having to sign for it. However, since the relatively recent decision to produce and issue several new gear designs, there could be an influx of Stridsvästar on the public market, potentially lowering the average pricing. Though, I would not be surprised if the majority of the vests are destroyed or put into storage, for one reason or another. Either way, I'm glad to see more modern and updated gear being put into service by our government and military command.

    I remember seeing smoke grenades rubber banded in the MOLLE like that in several photos, but I think that they were all before 2006. It seems that such a practice is not as widely done, at least not in front of cameras… When it comes to the smaller details, I agree with you, it's best to keep the more useful things higher up on your list of priorities. But I think that your kit is put together well so far, and you don't seem to have that much to add. I am not an expert on UKSF kits, but I do think that I remember seeing UKSF guys kitted out with BlackHawk pouches on their RAVs and SOHPCs. Therefore it should not be incorrect to use a BlackHawk hydration pouch. For the timeframe, I would assume that they would be using CamelBak bladders, but if you are interested in a better bladder design, I would recommend a Source bladder of the appropriate size. CamelBak bladders are not bad, to my experience, I just prefer Source bladders more. Either way, it should be worth a look.

    Even for medic or breacher kits it is important to keep hydrated so they would carry water, depending on the mission profile. I would definitely recommend that you have a way to carry your water, whether that be in a pouch on your back or simply putting a water bottle in your cargo pocket or utility pouch. Keeping yourself hydrated is always good, no matter the environment may be in. Besides what was posted above mine, I would also recommend that you put your smoke grenade in a pouch, and it would look a bit more authentic with an IR beacon that is appropriate to the timeframe of your kit.
  11. This is the wrong section to post such questions, the right section should be the General Discussion section, I believe. You can find it in the link below: http://arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/forum/9-general-discussion/ Besides that, this is the rifle that they have been seen using: http://postimg.org/image/b5hmqpjt7/ You'll need a new stock and a new RIS for the gun. The stock that you will be most likely to find that fits the bill is the G&P MK36 KV stock(http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=745_30_141&products_id=1283), but as you can see, it is not 100% accurate. Perhaps you would be able to find the same stock produced by other companies, or stocks that are similar. As for the rail, I do not believe that there is a rail on the market that will be low profile enough unless you're able to find the exact same rail that SOG uses. Theirs is of a special design and all rails on the airsoft market are just too bulky. I would suggest that you simply use the standard plastic hand-guard that comes standard with the G36c and use the rail panels as they are. Once you start to add AN/PEQ-15 devices or similar, as well as your preferred flashlight, and fore-grip, you will be covering up enough of the fore-grip so it should not look much different. If you have any other questions about the weapons of SOG, I would be glad to help, but my knowledge is limited.

    PaveHawk, that's the one! As you can tell, I'm not in the know when it comes to classifying aircraft, I'm better with gear. Anyway, it's very well made kit as it is but I'm looking forward to seeing it with the last few pieces of kit you're expecting.

    Glock Picture Thread

    I definitely agree with you when you say that it's either Race-Gun or military/police type Glocks out there, very seldom do you ever see anything that's as personalized as some 1911's. I guess you could CNC the slide to trim off metal, much like Chris Costa's M&P's have been made. If you've got a steady hand you might even be able to do it with a dremel, but I would not really recommend that! It does make me want to trim down my Glock's slide and stipple the frame, to make it more "high-speed." Possibly adding a small red-dot sight on the slide, but all this is just a dream, it's not going to happen... I, too, like the threaded barrel with a thread protector, it looks very aggressive and mean! Again, I don't think that I will ever modify my Glock, unless something breaks on it I wont replace anything. Nothing has broken in the 6 or so years that I have owned it, it hasn't been used very frequently but I find that impressive nonetheless. Since I am a number of months shy of 21, I cannot own any handguns in the US, and since I got a Green Card not too long ago, I have not been able to save up enough to buy any real firearms. I've got enough things that I need to spend money on anyway. When my father got his American Green Card, the first thing he said was that he was going to buy himself a Glock... He got the chance to shoot it a few times in the Swedish Army and he instantly loved the gun! He still has not bought one though... restoring a few classic cars suck up all the cash!

    Glock Picture Thread

    Hwagan, Glocks are incredibly reliable when it comes to the real steel versions, it also helps that airsoft Glocks are reliable as hell! At least in my experience they are. Of course, you should be able to find a few horror stories about reliability when it comes to any firearm but with the tests that Glocks are put through and the quality control of the company, there should not be a risk of failure. As long as you'd treat it well, but that goes with any firearm. Though this pertains to real Glocks and not airsoft Glocks, I have heard a story from a friend who is a SWAT Officer. He accidentally left his off-duty Glock on the top of his squad car, and he beats himself up for that mistake! He drove down the highway at 70mph and heard something scraping on the roof, when he looked in his rear-view mirror he could see this little black blob flying off of his car. Of course, he turned around when he was able to and stopped to pick it up, with one side of the slide and frame completely scratched, pretty deep into the metal and the plastic. The sights were knocked off, with a little damage to the slide where the sights are mounted. Even though its the SOP to have a round chambered for his SWAT Team, the Glock did not go off. He took it to a local shooting range and asked one of the employees if it was safe to fire and if it was able to be fixed, since he didn't want to show all of his team members what had happened! The employee racked the slide back a few times and listened carefully, and gave the word that it was in good enough condition to fire safely. My friend did shoot a good number of rounds through it, even without the sights, and went home to write a letter to Glock about how impressed he was that it would be able to take much more abuse that he expects in the line of duty, and Glock responded with another "thank you" letter with a few cool small things, as well as offering to fix/replace the gun for a decent fee. The ended up replacing it completely and he payed out of his own pocket because he didn't want the department to deal with it all. Unfortunately, he had to pay for it, but business is business and someone has to pay someone else... I don't know if it is alright to post a story about a real firearm on the airsoft boards, so if it is not accepted I will completely understand if the moderators and/or administrators were to delete this part of my post(and send me a PM with a warning or something, but I'd appreciate to keep my warning points at 0, thank you). Anyway, there are actually a lot of different things that one can do to a Glock to make it more unique or make it more "high-speed." The Echo 1 Timberwolf that Agent Hunk posted on the previous page is a nice example of a "high-speed" yet modest set up for a Glock. Which makes me want to trade in my KWA Glock18c for one of those, but I'm generally happy with my Glock as it is, it's extremely reliable but has no "cool-guy" accessories besides an Insight M3 light. Most of the Glock accessories on the market seem to be parts to make ones Glock into a Race-Gun, there is still a decent number of accessories that are more military oriented. It's true though, at the end it is still a boring Glock, and you cannot really take that away from the gun. *suitcase*, I love Glocks because of the simple and straight-to-the-point design, but I'll still admit that it's a pretty boring design(besides that TimberWolf). After all, it's designed to be a utilitarian combat pistol! Enough talk from me...

    I usually don't comment in response to pictures that members post, without asking or answering a question but for the above pictures I have to tell you, Botisho, that this is the best impressions that I have seen of Air Force PJs and one of the best impressions that I have ever seen! I'm also not someone that tries to build a realistic impression, rather, I like to draw inspiration from certain groups as to create something that would be realistically accurate but not strictly an impression. Very nicely done! It reminds me a lot of the National Geographic's "Inside Combat Rescue," you only need a BlackHawk... and a crew...
