Out of all my guns probably my TM MP7 that I got second hand, cheap and perfect for CQB. Even works okay outdoor.

Dye masks are a bit pricey but I'd say it's worth it. One drawback is that it limits your headwear options. Caps and boonies won't work unless you wear them like a retard and helmets require a lot of modification.

To Florida man in the previous thread asking about clothes for hot weather I'd recommend Russian style sniper suits. It's the only thing I can wear during the hot and super humid summers here in Japan.

>How do I get started? Where to play?
Check the pastebin. Usually people organize events via facebook, but you can also look up local airsoft/paintball fields (paintball fields do often organize airsoft events as well). You can rent, borrow stuff from someone else if you just want to try it out.
>How accurate is airsoft, how much would these skills transfer to real firearms?
Not really that much, in fact, it can teach you bad habits, though obviously you can learn a bit of manual of arms in case of ggb's.
>>
>>188136
google *your country* airsoft and there are usually some links, otherwise most stuff are usually organized on Facebook so you kinda have to be on that.

Can I get a QRD on green gas vs co2 for pistols? Is there any practical advantage of one over the other? Aside from the ways they're refilled/cartridges, that is
>>
>>188460
CO2 generally is more efficient and can also be played at lower temperatures (something you can partially do with certain GBB pistols by using higher pressure gasses, generally referred to as red- or black gas). The issue though is that some CO2 pistols might be shooting too strong for some sites, depending on local rules. If you seek practicality a gas or CO2 non-blowback-pistol are equally decent, if you want a blowback the CO2 generally is more lenient when it comes to cooldowns. There also is quiet a few GBBs that have both gas- and CO2 magazines available for them so you can try out both, preferably with a chronograph at hand to make sure the CO2 one does not shoot too strong.

I saved for quite a bit and hadn't played in ages when I got a Tippy in 2017. The nice thing with HPA Tippmann is you never have to remember to charge and pack your batteries before the game day and during/after the game day you top off air in your tanks so you're ready for the next game day or test firing. Find an HPA system you absolutely love, then buy. They are too expensive to collect like pokemons.
>>
>>188467
you also forgot to mention that since CO2 runs at a much much higher pressure than gas it will wear a lot on your pistol compared to GG, and some will outright break if you use CO2 mags. Stuff like TM hicapas with plastic slides will explode on the first mag, same goes for the AAP-01.
Common problem with even CO2 ready guns is that the nozzle cracks because they are still made from plastic and when they slam into the hop unit with much more force due to CO2 they crack

>>188141
Google for local fields, you may have dedicated fields, or you may have paintball fields that also run airsoft. Best bet is to do a rental for your first day if possible.
>QRD of what I need to get going?
I would say rent first, if you enjoy it come back here with a budget and we can link some stuff. But in general the bare minimum is gun, battery, bbs, eye/face protection.
>how accurate is airsoft
Depends on how much you want to spend. Within 100ft most anything will be accurate. The further you go out the more you are going to spend on setup and BBs. Realistically 150-175ft+ you are looking at body sized accuracy with stock guns.
>how much would these skills transfer to real firearms?
Unless you are playing at a CQB field almost none imo. It can teach some basic weapon handling and reloads at best.

It's seems to be a thing across the board with reenactors, and it's the one thing that always ruins the verisimilitude of any historical impression; all the kit is legit but the soldier is 24st. Nature of the beast though, as most reenactors are middle aged men.

Yes I want my stuff to shoot well because getting kills and winning is fun for me, but I don’t think saying that I only care about performance is right. I just don’t care about realism, but just what I think is cool and fun to play with.

Just got my E&L t191. Pretty cool gun. It's loud as fuck, and kinda heavy for an airsoft gun (This is my first GBBR so idk much about these things), and you gotta use a paintball coil for it. Kinda neat that you can use co2 canisters if you don't like HPA but they're expensive as fuck so I doubt anyone is going to.
>>
>>191255
Fucking neato, how many shots can you get out of one co2 canister?

From what I can find online, like 160 or so with a 33g co2 canister. It can also accept 12g canisters.

I tried it a bit and yeah, not the best grouping, but my hpa tank barely had any air in it since my local airsoft place couldn't fill it up, so I only shot it like 30 times on semi auto maybe. There's a video where a guy improved the grouping by just putting an oring somewhere but I haven't tried that yet.

1. Might be wise to play a game before investing more money into the sport, honestly - but that's just my view on the matter
2. Most cheapo-repro optics should work on AEGs (with Aimpoint clones generally being preferred), but if you live in the US a Sig Romeo-MSR is literally $95USD and will likely beat the piss out of almost all of them should you want something a bit more capable of handling a good whack or two
3. You don't strictly *need* an optic, or arguably sights in general, but having some form of sighting system that's zeroed for your gun's BBs and hop-up does mean you have to fire less shots on average to hit your shit, which generally makes you more likely to emerge victorious
4. Aside from what I've already mentioned, red dot results may vary if you have an astigmatism - a good way to tell if you do is to look through one at an in-person store and see if you have any visible starbursting or similar effects, since that will affect how you use it; worst-case scenario (i.e. in the event contact-lens/glasses correction isn't enough to fix it), you may have to invest a bit more money into a prismatic optic, with the cheapest nonmagnified options being considerably more expensive (at which point, checking the used market for the optic you want may be wise)
>>
>>191785
I have a KWA USP compact. Nice little gun. Pricy mags, and they all started leaking to various degrees. I believe I've fixed them, tho. The proprietary rail sucks. I've switched over to an AEP. It always feels like a waste to gas up 4 mags, and at the end of the day, never use them.

>>191788
For airsoft, you just need to quickly get the red blob on target. If you have a pricier gun that can hit long distance, then sure, get a good optic to match.
>>
>>191773
Generally you can't do much wrong with a reddot if it is properly zeroed, although you could just learn to use the ironsights to aim your first few shots before guiding by bb flightpath. That is a skill that kind of translates to every airsoft. Especially the old carryhandle-style M4/M16 rear sights are surprisingly pleasant to aim with and allow for quick aiming with both eyes open once you learn how to. For bigger distances a magnification comes in handy to properly track your bbs path and adjust accordingly, but that only really becomes relevant at 50+ meters.
>>191785
I have the KWA USP C. Decent backup and sits really well in my hands for how small it is, since the grip still is rather big. At some point the trigger got a tiny hairline crack though, leading to the trigger sometimes not triggering up until the point the trigger outright broke. Replacing that trigger was the fumbliest and most annoying thing I had to deal with related to airsoft I think, since there is a ton of tiny parts in the trigger assembly you need to align perfectly when putting it back together.

Damn, KWA sounds like a handful, Marui offers USP C as well as an option, however plastic is the eternal annoyance when it comes to realism.
But I remember them hyping up them being first ones to receive some mechanical upgrade in Marui products, so in gameplay perspective that sounds good
Feeling the same about the mags though, at least they don't need to be gassed each time when not in use if working right. Also the mag prices be it KWA or Marui, GOD!
Local store demands 50 eurodollars for one mag, fucking rip off

Anyone here know of a good sniper spring that's about 18 cm long? I need a new spring for my mosin but I'm starting to get the impression that no standard sniper spring is gonna fit into this piece of shit.
The max spring I can fit in is 18 cm long and around 1.2-1.1 cm wide. 1.3cm doesn't fit either.
I've tried to fiddle around with piano wire and make my own springs but it only gave me a 20 fps increase with .40g BBS, so now it shoots at a pitiful 320 fps. How can I increase my fps? Is it even possible?

Like already mention it's mainly suffering at normal games. You have to play extremely cautiously/sneaky to not get raped by anyone who can shoot full auto. Only advantage I noticed was that people don't hear when you're shooting at them so even if you miss you might get a second or third chance.

Haven't played airsoft in over ten years. Found out there's a group near me with 70ish active players at weekly outdoor events. Thinking about getting back in. I have gear, but I got rid of my old AEGs years ago. What's worth a shit now? Is there a decent mostly-metal AR for under 300 bucks right now? I'm tempted to go GBBR but can't justify spending 600 bucks minimum on a rifle and 4 magazines.

Because airsoft is not a game or a sport it is replica firearms meant to imitate real guns as closely as possible while still not being a real gun under japanese laws.

Decided to go to a CQB for the first time ever, even wore one of those fetish muzzles, this thing was annoying, but it actually saved me from quiet a few nasty shots to the face. Shit was surprisingly fun. Me and my buddies thought we'd get completely raped by those HPA hicapa speedsofters there but we actually won a majority of the games. Really interesting to play a 3,9kg airshit and having to continuously switch between shoulders to take corners better, makes one appreciate the time wasted in the gym for a change. Also it was around 30°C inside the hall so it got really hot, by the end of the day I was drenched in sweat. I learned some shortcomings with this setup as well, like having the mags inside your pants pockets works fine if you are not wearing gloves and are generally not under a lot of pressure, which generally is the case in CQB though. But usually I do not really care about quick reloads since I mainly play cold war era gear anyways.
So how was your airshit weekend anon?

As someone who has an LCT AK I wouldn't suggest anything they sell for a play ootb gun. The bodies are very good, internal qc sucks though as many people will tell you. I played 2 games with mine ootb and it regularly jammed in semi, the shimming also was incredibly bad. At this point the only original internal part in mine is the gearbox shell. If you want to go russian I heard the Arcturus airsofts are pretty playable ootb.

I thought cyma's were entry models (platinum even), I'll look into it as they are available here more than other brands. Think specna arms is now becoming the most popular after cyma.

What should I also get, an additional battery, a different spring for when I need lower/higher fps/J, a few midcaps, a mag loader and a decent scope, should be good to go gear wise?

I'm also looking into summer camo, or not even camo, something that looks good for airsoft that can be worn in high 30s celsius temperatures here because my camo is hell with all the running and sun blasting even now when it's high 20s.

They still perform very well, at least that is what I heard all across the board. If you want to force yourself to shell out more money you can go for a krytac or VFC avalon. They will cost you around 500 bucks and supposedly run great ootb.
>What should I also get
Just make sure the batteries you are getting will fit your airsoft and you might want to ask the shop if they have any idea if the midcaps you plan on buying actually will feed with your airsoft model, since unfortunately that always can be an issue with AR type AEGs, less so with AK types. On the topic of batteries you generally want to run LiPo, although they require a bit of maintenance so they don't turn limp on you 7 games in.
>I'm also looking into summer camo, or not even camo
Idk where you are from but hit your local milsurplus store and get yourself a BDU. If it is too hot for the jacket you can always roll up sleeves or just wear a shirt. Just avoid black, it gets incredibly hot in the sun and imo looks absolute ass half the time.

must be a american or leddit thing, cause at least where i play. Most people start out with AEG, and after their first year if they stick around they swap to HPA, and that's wether they are milsimmer, casual or speedsofter. The field i run, we probably have more HPA than AEG players at this point.
>>
>the epic HPA setup in question
>>193733
The hose looks gay and generally people that really try to reach the last percentile of optimized performance are the unpleasant type of retard that get into petty arguments over how they definitely hit someone 60 meters away in a parallel sprint, because his 1200 bucks setup would never fail him and is all he really has to compensate for his lack of skill, thus his fundamentalist faith in his HPA tapped tranny AAP carbine can never be undermined without catastrophic consequences for him.
These days AEG can easily reach near-HPA performance for basically what is a fraction of the budget, it isn't 2014 anymore. Personally the only advantage I see is the ability to adjust power on the fly quiet a bit easier compared to a qc spring systems on AEG (something that many people hold against HPA ironically enough, assuming those people would crank up their power post-chrono). Consistency also shouldn't be an issue with AEG unless you did something weird with your build, which according to a HPAfag I play with often can also be the case with HPA.
At the end of the day everyone can play whatever he likes, there is a reason why certain stereotypes about certain groups exist though.

Is 65 to 70m an okay range for a sniper? I managed to crank up the fps with a custom spring on my mosin but it seems this is as high as it will go without modding the chamber.

It's alright. How VSR compatible is it? Cause then there are plenty of parts that can help you with range and accuracy. Power obviously helps with range but your hopup setup is much more important

Just be ready to be counter"sniped" by most AEG and HPA While you miss your first shot and are busy racking that bolt again they will have thrown half a mag at you, since that range is still in semi-effective distance for most AEG/HPA, unless you have some site-/country-specific FPS regulations. On a day that isn't windy I can generally hit people up to 70m away with my 1.5j M16 AEG. That doesn't even take into account some crazy DMR builds with 1,8+ joule people run. I would suggest to instead play like a normal rifleman, not a "sniper" and embrace the fact that you are severely outgunned at basically any distance. Every kill you land on some DSG/HPA tranny will taste twice as sweet though.

My site has a 300 fps cap with .25g on any non marksman or dmr weapon. It's the standard for Spain.
Also pistol hpa setups are straight up banned (I think just hpa in general is banned, haven't seen a nigga ever use that on the field)
Will I still be outranged at those distances?
I also have a minimum 30m engagement distance on the gun so regular infantryman is not really viable.

Before I post anything related to airsoft, what is your opinion on anime?

that build goes unbelievably hard, I was simultaneously wondering if it was going to be some kind of cosplay and worried that it was instead going to be ahegao-hoodiesoft, but I am pleasantly surprised to find the rare third option of a genuinely aesthetically-pleasing stylized build that doesn't go over-the-top but still possesses its own unique sense of personality and charm - good shit

IIRC, the shop near my house has one that is essentially a large cardboard box connected to a tube where you can rest the Chrono. I would theorize that it's angled to hit the bottom corner of the box, where a blanket of some sort is placed. Seems to work for them.

Thank you very much for the kind words.

Then you should be fine, although I assume with such engagement distances enemies can close in rather fast.

Are cyma M14's solid out of box? It looks dreadful to take apart, if i decide to buy myself one.
>>
>>194611
DMR’s are built not bought. And yes V7 gearboxes do suck major donkey dick imo. Negative airsoft has some videos on them so watch that before you decide on if it’s something you want to delve into. Unless you take the HPA pill ofc.
>>
>>194613
I do not neccesarily expect it to be DMR, I just kind of want playable M14 and consider it as cheapest option. I just wonder how it performs out of box.
>>
>>194618
It will be alright. Typical older CYMA so Tamiya plug, okay internals and you probably won’t be able to lift more than .28’s.
What id do is rewire it to deans, and install a simple mosfet like a Gate nano or Perun AB++ so you can run it with a 11.1v without frying the trigger contracts, and change out the barrel for tighter bore and a Maple leaf 60 degree super macaron with omega nub, so you can lift heavier bb’s.
>>
>>194611
Incidentally was also looking at those.
I have a reliable cyma ak but I wanted something cool that I could mod more.
>>194620
How would the accuracy be though? Also would the joules change
>>
>>194623
>How would the accuracy be though?
your accuracy will improve by a higher quality bucking/barrel combo. Allowing to use heavier bb's like .3 or .32 is also a significant boost to accuracy over lighter bb's that are more affected by wind. Your joule will probably slightly increase with better seal from the new bucking + a tight bore barrel
>>
>>194624
Might consider it. Ak is jamming up and I need a second primary for local fields, m14 and the tm skorpion looked to be my best options in terms of looks and if they fit in my carry bags
>>
>>194633
>Ak is jamming up and I need a second primary for local fields
What do you mean by jamming up? Does this only happen in semi or in FA as well? If it's in semi it's because gearbox can't keep up with you spamming on semi. This is usually a problem when running either nimh or a 7.4v lipo with AK's. Using 11.1v fixes it but if your AK doesn't have a mosfet it will fry your trigger contacts over time.
>>
>>194636
I see. I will try that then. I had to full auto to unjam the gun multiple times last I took it out and before that it was shooting only half the time at low fps. I just thought it was the battery but if I can make it more reliable I will just do that.
>>
>>194644
Yeah that's typical problem version 3 gearboxes have. Big fps variance could be a sign of some other problem tho.
>>
>>194688
Only other thing could be the new bucking and nub not seating properly. They worked fine after swaping battery abd going back to chrono and just putting it throu a half mag in full auto. Maybe it never seated. I still should upgrade, would any mosfet for cyma ak work or is there specific differences between ones made for tm copies vs vfc?
I've only ever done simple parts upgrades before.
>>
>>194698
Any inline mosfet will work on any gun. If you want a optical mosfet get a Perun V3. Either way you are gonna have to do some soldering. You might have to dremel some part of the gearbox to fit the Perun if something sticks up preventing it from seating correctly. Depeds on the gearbox really so hard to say.

Your FPS problems could be due to poor seal. Either from the nozzle to hop up, or from your cylinder to piston. It's impossible to tell without you opening it up and testing
>>
I've got a question, and I've got zero knowledge of airsoft. I'm making a movie and I need a fake luger or luger-like pistol. I used a very cheap toy gun as a prop, but one scene has the main character disassembling and cleaning his gun, so I need something more realistic that can be taken apart. Can anyone here recommend a somewhat realistic luger that costs around $300 or less?
>>
>>194710
Not airsoft but check out Denix replica Luger as an option

Yeah, that pistol probably isn't legal in Japan. There's some dumb rule here that says pistol replicas can't be made fully in metal.

Also, do you live in Japan or are you just visiting? If you live here check Mercari for model gun Lugers or go to Akihabara and hope you can get lucky (Lugers seem to be pretty rare these days)

Mosin update: I got da sling.
>>
>>195298
How is it so far? Worth buying? What about spare parts?
>>
>>195321
I had to order a better hop, new shorter internal barrel + custom internal piston and nozzle (the cylinder and chamber is non standard, both the nozzle and piston assembly are plastic by default) from a guy called bolt action dude and also had to hand craft my own springs for 30 extra fps. The internal chamber is not long enough to push the rifle to 400fps with 0.4gs, I tried stronger springs but the rifle became impractical to load past a certain strength. The max performance I've managed to get out of it is 330fps with 0.4gs with a range of approximately 65m to consistently hit a target and 70m if you pray to virgin Mary for your shot to land.
It's an awful stock sniper, shooting at 300 fps with 0.25gs out of the box. Now, I will admit I've had fun tinkering with it to try and upgrade it, but I cannot in good conscience recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a historical sniper rifle. Go buy a kar98 if you want a decent sniper with good upgrades.
>>
>>195327
Forgot to say, the rifle is the S&T spring mosin nagant.
I guess I might as well list some positives
The look and feel of the rifle is great with a real wood body, if you're going to use it as a regular rifle instead of a sniper it works just fine for that role, just remember to grease the bolt to get a silky smooth bolt pull. The magazine is pretty decent, it can hold up to 35 rounds and can be bought relatively cheap, around 20-30 bucks per mag. Sight picture and iron sights are fantastic imo, I just really love the mosins sights since they let me quickly get a bead on target.
>>
>>195327
Not interested in turning it into a sniper rifle. All I'd want is for it to do 1.6J max
