  1. (Renagade's video)

     

    I don't mean any disrespect towards you as you seemed to be relatively proactive yourself, but what exactly was your team doing that whole time? Instead of maneuvering out of the killzone ASAP they seemed quite content to stay in a clustered column and get machine gunned in exposed positions.

    Forgive the choice of music...it's a reference to our team's original video which had the original version of that song chosen for it. Season 2 if you will...hopefully we'll have a lot of videos in the future as opposed to last year where almost nothing happened.

     

    We made an excursion out to this field, which is about 2 and a half hours away. Other than the high FPS allowed and odd gameplay flow choices, it was worthwhile and we're considering going again in the future.

  3. Agreed. Forti has some of the most interesting and well-done footage I've seen so far. The editing is sheer gold and it's way more engaging than another boring slideshow with rock music to cover up the sound of the guy being hit :). It's how I'd want to do videos if I had a channel...

  4. It's one of CYMA's newer models, basically a VFC copy like a DBoys. The new CYMA gearboxes are pretty good right out of the box, hopup and barrel isn't bad either. Real handguards should fit, might need a tiny bit of fitting. Not a whole lot of real parts to put on it though, maybe front and rear sight blocks? The DBoy's full steel models are starting to come back in supply again, so you might want to look at those instead, all steel already, and the DBoys gearboxes, while not as nice as CYMA, aren't bad.

     

    I see, sounds good. Do you think one of the newer CYMAs could handle an 11.1v lipo (I use mostly semi-only fire so not much auto shredding)? That's one of my main concerns right now, as I'm not keen on getting another battery and the ones they come with I never use.

    VFC M4A1 E-Series

     

    Gearbox:

     

    Retuned and rear-wired gearbox by a good friend of mine, not sure of the ROF but it's something leaning closer to 20 RPS on an 11.1v lipo. Replaced spring to shoot at ~350 FPS to be legal for MOUT here. All else is stock and it runs like a well-oiled toaster with instantaneous trigger response.

     

    Hop:

     

    Polar Star Concave Spacer, Systema Energy bucking, Madbull Black Python 6.03 tightbore in 363mm length. On .28s and in ideal conditions it's pushing something like 200 feet, or possibly slightly more range. It might be more than that, as I have taken some people by surprise with how far I can reach.

     

    Externals:

     

    Generic cranestock

    Hurricane EoTech

    Dboys URX

    Magpul PTS AFG-2

    Magpul XD Rail Covers, FDE

    APS Catapult Flip-Up sight (backup)

     

    Very proud of this, it's my only AR worth using and all the frustrating work that's gone into it has been worth it.

  6. Why not use a lipo?

     

    A small issue of $$$ combined with being paranoid about flaming/exploding batteries as well as not having a good place to store one. I also didn't realize how much I needed one until recently.

     

    Um... is your front sight a rear sight?

     

    Yup.

     

    It works quite well actually, they line up almost perfectly. It looks a bit whack but it stands out at least...

  7. I apologize if my lack of gas block or internal wires offends the airsoft gods, I've tried to hide them for this (very bad) photo, now with 100% more front sight:

     

    M4_build_9001.jpg

     

    This is hopefully what my gun should look like (sans the badly hidden wires) if I can get my friend to tuck the wires in and set me up for a buffer tube lipo.

  8. I kinda like that red dot.... what is it? :P

    (maybe place it at the back of the gun?)

     

    It's a BSA red dot of some kind, barely worth the materials used to make it. It's actually more for looks in this photo, skirmishing it just adds pointless heft when even moderate lighting can make it difficult to see the dot.

     

    A real one might not, but the gun that he's posted there can function just fine. Unless I'm mistaken, this isn't a RS forum.

     

    In airsoft, it's an entirely aesthetic part a large amount of the time. If you got rid of non-essential components such as the ones related to the gas system, you'd actually be creating a more skirmish practical rifle by shaving weight off.

     

    Basically this. Nevermind figuring out how to fit it with my wonderful track record of technical work... :unsure:

  9. Micro red dot it is.

     

    The grip is the absolute least comfortable part, especially without gloves, followed closely by the stock - for now the VFG "works" though I end up holding the thing like it's an AFG anyway.

     

    Like I said, I'm thinking of getting a Magpul MOE/CTR/whatever stock and maybe some rail covers. Think I should get the furniture in black or OD? Worried that OD might clash with my tan vest and hat/helmet...

     

    EDIT: What about foliage? Thinking it would look good with my ABU uniform.

  10. I'd put your wires inside the rail unit and replace the fugly RDS with a micro and some sights dude.

     

    Unfortunately, the way my friend temporarily fixed the wiring it's kind of permanently stuck outside the gun until it can be rear-wired (I don't have a way to separate the wires so it can go inside the barrel/delta ring assembly). Also, the URX turned out to be too tight to get wires in there anyhow, so I'm pretty much out of luck for now.

     

    I have a catapult sight but it looks kind of bad with the RDS.
