BTW: they both look pretty finished and ready for production to me. Lets hope so.

Oh, and the mag should definately be longer:

I wouldn't say it's impractical if it was 8mm and shooting a million fps ;)

 

Impractical unless you like going to jail for murder after every skirmish, then :P

 

 

But yes, semi auto 8mm GBB with enough fps would, IMHO, be the only way to do those kinds of weapons justice in airsoft, even if they won't be the most practical guns on the field.

If you have over 1,000 dollars to spen on an airsoft gun then you should just go and buy a real gun!

While...In some way I agree with you....I can't go shoot someone in RL with a RS weapon and not eventually go to jail.

 

In A/S I can :)

I think he's just been spamming to get 100 posts.

 

 

As for a M82 with a hicap...you just know the manufacturer is going to put the selector switch with a full auto option :rolleyes: . Introducing the new Airsoft Barrett M82 Sniper Support gun.

Size of a heavy machinegun,

Firepower of an M4,

 

One hit from this, and it's all over!

The M82 is a direct copy of the hurricane kit. The receiver was made too short on it so as a consequence the mag is not only not long enough to be the same size front to back as a real mag, but it is also way too short. It is also missing the rear sight post and flip up front sight. It is also missing the barrel springs inside the receiver. It will leave your craving for an M107 unanswered.

Okay so I'm with you on the "most M82's are not practical for in the field use" front.

 

The primary use for such a big rifle would be long range sniping right? Since we don't get a lot of call for sticking a depleted uranium round through an engine block from a mile away to stop a APC in airsoft - mores the pitty :-)

 

So your main enemies to having a truely effective rifle for this purpose are the 6mm spherical round being very hard to keep aerodynamically stable at distances over 30-35 meters at a safe FPS (where safe is based on UK limits).

 

You can use a heavy round and a physically larger round like the 8mm would be the way to go, but you still have the issue of spheres being a bit ###### aerodynamically. So what about a rifle designed from the get go to shoot 8mm version of RAP4's Airfin round?

 

The increased surface area of the 8mm round would mean it safer for higher FPS deliver (less chance of a skin breach - min engagement distances would still need to be enforced). The tail fin would provide much better stabilty than a hop up and you could introduce a Tanio Koba style twist barrel to increase stability.

 

I've actually been considering modding my KJW M700 to allow the use of 6mm Airfin rounds (its actually only the mag you need to mod there is enough clearance in the chambering of the round that the gun shouldn't need modding), but like so many fun things in my life at the moment I don't have the time :-(
