  1. Like the thread title says. PM me if you have anything I may be interested in.
  2. Hello all, I'm looking for someone to take over the task of gearbox work in a G&G M4 and possibly a few other Chinese M4 gearboxes. Currently the gearbox is locked up in the G&G and I need someone to assess that and work on the gearbox per my instructions. On a side note I am also looking for any boneyard or parts Cyma/TM G18C AEPs. Anyone interested in fulfilling these requests please PM me or email me at j<at>jcm.me

    Best VSS?

    It looks like there are several VSS makes out there now and I'm looking for one to build out my opfor DM role with. I've seen the KA, LCT, and G&G makes. Also there's the Echo-1. I'm wanting to lean towards the G&G because I'm a fanboy of theirs but I really want something with good stock durability and performance. Target shooting power is 1.55J (~400 FPS <AT>20g). Thoughts and recommendations?
  4. Bump. Only a few hours left on that EBR. Looks like it is going to sell on the cheap side too!
  5. Thanks airbrone for reminding me. Added the pictures as well to comply with seller rules.
  6. NOTE: These items are listed on eBay. If you wish to purchase them then please bid! If you can't bid or want to discuss a deal then send me a PM. Shipping is extra outside of OBO price. 1.

This gun is for parts as I don't have the time to assemble, test, or verify any parts are present. I can verify that it has a Tokyo Marui VSR-10 trigger mech with a full PDI seat set that is fully functional with a low amount of rounds through it.
  7. Why not a JG GSPEC clone? http://www.evike.com/products/28627/ Take your barrel extension off and you have a sweet base gun. I modified my JG stock so that it was foldable using a MP5K PDW stock. So you could easily shorten it that way as well.
  8. BTW I met SHWELL over at the Russian CRC. At the time I was pretty wiped out from running around the AO. Wish I could have met up with you guys again later. Having been to two other MGP National Level Events, I was somewhat disappointed in this one. For this I left 3 stars. Overall though I really did have a good time and so did my fellow Russian FIST members. By the second day, I started talking with other players (from the tan side and green side) and started building my AAR and suggestions. First, I'll list the pros an cons: Pros: 1. Facility 2. Amount of staff 3. General good sportsmanship from tan side Cons: 1. Lack of organization and preparation 2. Inconsistency in rules and lack of knowledge of the scenario by MGP staff 3. Lack of communication amongst command structure 4. Player briefs/debriefs? 5. Bad sportsmanship 6. CRC and respawn carts 7. Actors/civilians Facility We loved the facility. There really isn't much more to say here. It was as expected and/or greater than expected. Great pick MGP. Amount of staff The amount of staff on the field was impressive and I felt MGP got this part correct. Efficient utilization of the staff and knowledge is a different story but it was good to see a staff member present at every major firefight we were in. Tan Sportsmanship Tan, for the amount of crap you guys went through on the second day, all that I can say is that you guys rock. The FIST team and about two other squads had a group from Colorado held up in the city about mid-second day. You guys gave us a great firefight and I appreciate you not having a sour taste in your mouth due to everything that was going on. I noticed that a lot of tan had left by the second day and this made me feel really bad for the tan players and really everyone overall. It sucks not having anyone to shoot at :) Inconsistency in rules and lack of knowledge of the scenario by MGP staff This really bugged me. It seemed that the staff had it within their power to manipulate the ruleset. This is a good thing for game play/scenario based rules but isn't good for essential core rules such as calling hits, vehicle hit rules, and grenade kill radius. I saw all of these manipulated at staff and at times I could see how the opposing team would hate this. There's also the whole ordeal I went through with establishing link-up with MGP Tornado3-->FIST. The staff didn't seem to understand that this was a staff to FIST team communication and shoved it off as an internal issue on Russian command. Lack of organization and preparation This was a big issue for MGP. I feel that it's unacceptable to have an event that costs this much where the higher command positions are not regulated or aggressively managed by MGP, if not completely staffed by MGP altogether. I feel as if command was just left up in the air to "work out". This can't be expected to go over very well when you have players who are paying $200 to have fun. It just isn't fair to them. Due to this mentality, alpha company green side did not even have a CO. We had LT "Moreno" from Sheepdogs step up (awesome dude by the way) thankfully but this just added more strain on him and took focus away from his PL position. Also due to this let it "work out" mentality, there was a disjoint in communication amongst command. Talking to Red6 (green overall CO), he had no internal radio comm with any of green side's other officers. This made it very hard for fragos to be handed out to the squad level. I feel that at an event that is this big and costs this much, it is MGP's defacto responsibility (like it or not, players will hold MGP accoutnable) for making sure internal preparation and organization for command and communication runs smoothly. This is said in perspective and understanding of possible issues caused by equipment and signal issues as that was a prominent issue as well. Lack of communication amongst command structure From my perspective the lack of internal communication amongst the command structure was caused by three things; subchannels, general lack of radio channel standardization, and signal issues. For the love of communication, please PLEASE lets not use subchannels in the future. For one, my high output radios have to be programmed for subchannels ahead of time. They can do subchannels yes, but if this is changed at the field to something we didn't agree on ahead of time, it causes chaos - most especially for an element as critical as FIST. No big deal though as we adapted by having a low power spare FRS walkie just in case this happened. Only problem is this forces us to low power and having to step out into the open to communicate more than usual. There also seemed to be an issue with an understanding of how FIST communications were supposed to work. MGP staff did not seem to be monitoring the channel that I was told ahead of time (by Mac) would be used for calling in fires -- channel 10. I asked several staff members on the field what I should do. They all mentioned this was an internal comm issue and that I would need to escalate through Russian command structure. Funny thing is that it was my PL who told me to ask the admins for direction. We tried channel 10, channel 7 (Russian central comm net), and even channel 13. I was concerned that no one responded to anything on channel 13 in case of real injury. Eventually I was told to go inside to admin building and Simmons lent me a radio. +1 to MGP for fixing that issue. However, we still had the issue with internal command communication and ID for where we needed to lay down the fire missions. On a personal level for the FIST team, this made us feel pretty inefficient after the initial first 3-5 calls for fire at the beginning of the game. The only reasons those worked out were due to the orders outlining that alpha company would have fire priority/FIST detachment at the beginning of the game and we were right there within verbal of our CO (Wolf 36). After 12-1PM though it seems Tornado3 (MGP admin for calls for fire) went dead. We couldn't get him on the horn (remember at this point we are using MGP's black box radio) at all regardless of where we were. I could have been standing outside of the admin building and wouldn't get a response. Thankfully, we ran into Mac at one point and just called the fire in to him directly. Any chance for calls for fire after 1PM on the first day were history though. Sorry for this Sheepdog LT/Wolf 36. I just couldn't get Tornado3 after around 13:00. Reading through other player's commentary it seems this may have been due to our SAM sites being destroyed. Regardless, I didn't get that memo. That night I returned the radios around ~7pm. The next day I asked for them back or if the communication issue had been remedied and was told calls for fire responsibility had been turned over from FIST to Russian command. This was understandable considering the chaos around trying to get this to work. Overall though, I really enjoyed being able to get Tornado3 on the other end (when I could) and hearing the splash confirmation and seeing our guys benefit from the efforts. This was really cool and I would like to see more stuff like this in the future. Player briefs/debriefs Did we have a safety briefing? We were heading towards admin building around 9:25 but were told that the breifing had already happened by our CO. Is this true? If so, why not stick with the schedule? If not, then this is another argument as to why it would be ideal to have MGP staff in CO positions. Debrief. Did this happen? If so, what time and where? I am guessing the admin building. By the time we walked all the way from the front lines to the CRC, unloaded our gear, and got hydrated, Mac and the others were pulling up at the vendor area for the raffle. Bad sportsmanship I was really disappointed to see that on the second day, in light of the majority of the tan players having left, green players taking buildings as if they were invincible or something. I watched a squad of cocky players run up into a building, the first three players clearly take 3-5 BBs each as they burst through the door, and continue up the stairs as if nothing had happened. This was low. Very low. Shame on you people. On the other hand, one of our players attempted to throw a grenade to the second floor, it bounced back, and landed ~20 feet away from me and discharged. It was reassuring to see an admin come over and walk off the distance to check and make sure I was calling legit grenade hits. CRC and respawn carts I really would like to have seen staff manned and provided respawn carts from mid-field to CRC. There were times that I felt fairly light headed walking back from the front lines to the CRC with the heat beating down on me. It would have been great if we had a transport system about mid-way from the rubble pit area to the CRC. It would only be one-way so that it couldn't be used for deployment. Actors/civilians This is really low priority considering the other concerns that have been voiced but I would have loved to see more civilians running around and/or interactive actors based on the scenario. Maybe a civilian police force scenario etc. Random theatrics stuff like that really makes the event more interesting and fun to me. We had a little bit of this a few years back at Blanding and it was great! With all this being said, I had a great time and I wanted to issue a big thank you/shout out to the following: -MGP Productions for the event -Guardian Center for letting us use the venue -UN Chick for taking pictures -Talon (Chad Boone) for good times and memories -Russian leadership (Red6, LT "Moreno", and Wolf36) for sticking in there and stepping up to the plate -Tan multicam guys from Colorado. We fought you guys near the end of the second day. I was the guy outside with the DMR by the white SUV shooting at you. I appreciate your sportsmanship and that was one hell of a firefight Thank you all, Joshua Moore Russian FIST

  11. +1 here. I'd be all for this. The current proposition though, and supported thoughts are to condone homosexual marriage, not bring government out of it. If we are going to support one way or the other, I'd rather vote "no". I also want to point out that my personal religious views and my views on this matter regarding governmental regulation are different. Please do not assume that my personal opinions on the matter are that of which I would see forced on people. Read a few pages back and you will see my stance on how I feel the government should be involved with this.
  12. To go and play at the facility is one thing but to me the value comes from the administration. I think it would be most helpful to me (and others) if these questions were answered: 1. Would this be well managed and scenario driven MilSim type operations? 2. If so, how many event staff are we talking? Will there also be defined factions? Will there be roleplay civilians? 3. When you say weekends are we talking 8-5 Saturday and Sundar or 24/48 hour events?
  13. This is a necro post but I'll humor you. The ring you speak of is best fabricated from something like the ring around the top of a milk jug lid.
  14. It's just unrealistic to try and enforce or regulate the other variables. I can agree that they all are valid points and have impact on a child's direct and indirect well being. I have no need to justify the conclusion though aside from my own beliefs and personal experience :) It's the others who question it that tear out this long discussion wanting factual hard evidence, justification, etc. It would be amusing to me to see how things would be if every piece of legislation went through the horse beating and tedious scrutiny/"justification requirements" as seen in this topic.
  15. Those are good points and I was actually going to point out the chance that these things can vary and change after marriage as well. Except my point is (follow me here) that homosexuality usually wouldn't change nor would I expect it to change. It's much more static. Much more of a black and white variable in the bigger equation. It's a case of "failure from the get go" and "could be bad but possibility for improvement". Again forgive my lack of better words there.
  16. "It doesn't work" was regarding my take on homosexual logic in general. IE: you can't reproduce. "It wouldn't be ideal" is regarding homosexuals raising children. Two different things. The difference is that one is controllable, the other is not. You can't guarantee a person's income or help with that situation. You can't guarantee or provide a person's location. Legislation should only be passed where it can be applied reasonably. It would be hard to enforce the pretty extreme circumstances you have mentioned.
  17. I didn't say they would be terrible kids. I said they would be missing some emotional/social aspects that a child in a hetero family would have. I can see the results similar to that of a child without a mother or father with, like you said, extra influence on homo tendencies. I've already clarified that the morality is one that I take on a personal, individual, religious case. However, a believe it or not, religious morals have a lot to do with best practices and safety (not saying safety is the case here though). A lot of times this isn't always apparent to human kind as a face value black and white explanation. Hence, faith. A good example that I firmly believe in is the case and argument of incest. One question that is asked is "how did mankind reproduce if Adam and Eve were the only two created?". Simple answer is that at first they reproduced internally within their families. Using religious morals this was not a problem or wrong at the time (look it up). It did not become a problem until much later when God commanded it to stop. This I firmly believe was due to the genetics behind interbreeding and genetic disorders. You know, keep the mutation/genetic disorder in the family and if you have two family members with it then the more likely their offspring will have it type of theory. So for me, and again I'm not asking anyone else to be forced into this logic, if you stick with the religious morals (and understand their context) you end up coming out OK in the end. :) Eugenics insinuates reproduction. There is no reproduction going to happen so that comparison is "moot" as you would say. I'm getting at the root logic behind homosexuality here. Just asking some people to step back and think about if humans were ever designed to work that way.
  18. The key point here is that it doesn't work. It doesn't even make sense from the perspective of reproduction and furtherment of the human race. From the point regarding mother/father (female/male), I've already iterated my points but it can be agreed that regardless there are attributes that would be missing from having a female mother and male father that a child in a hetero environment would have. Not to say it isn't possible to be raised and survive that way, but I really don't think it would be ideal. Most especially from an emotional/social impact on the child. Tomtortoise: I guess I never fully grasped how late into the 20th century that racism from slavery carried into society. Good information there but I believe that can be argued as a bit different as there was a whole controversy (some can argue a war) that was fought over slavery in which a lot of these laws were enacted prior to. We're not fighting to "free the homos" (for lack of better words). Such a comparison would be insulting at best.
  19. So you agree then that they both are wrong (gay and pedo)? Also, I wasn't aware that interracial marriage had legislation against it. Do you have any sources for this claim? If not then thats irrelevant as we are talking about legislative decisions here not just things that are looked down upon as taboo in our society. I wouldn't call m99 a bigot per se either. He just seems to be a younger kid with a lot of beliefs rooted in faith versus logic.
  20. Looking back, I can definitely see how you go down that thought train. I took it upon myself to disassemble one last time for the pics: http://jcm.me/asf/IMG_20130721_202613.jpg http://jcm.me/asf/IMG_20130721_202525.jpg http://jcm.me/asf/IMG_20130721_202629.jpg
  21. Bump again. Offer away peeps.
  22. Well, there's a few reasons for that. Firstly, I didn't want to modify my hop-up system in any way that changed it from the original type of hop-up. Second, the G&G M14 hop-up chamber is completely different from the M4. There's basically a cut in the top of the chamber that allows the arm + nub to protrude into the barrel area. This protrusion does not allow the arm to directly come into contact with the barrel/r-hop patch though. So that left me with either modifying the arm and fabricating my own resin design or just coming up with a solution that fit directly into the cut out area and applied appropriate "flat" hop. This is where the flat nubs came into play. I may post some pictures later if I get the balls to disassemble the chamber again.
  23. I love my Pantac single point. It's the one with the nice pad on it.
  24. For what it's worth, I had my stock G&G EBR barrel cut for the ER-Hop by airborne101. He also installed an R-Hop patch for me. When I got it back I was very overwhelmed by the overhop. With .43g BBs, the trajectory went 60' out and then shot straight up another 60'. After some tinkering with some precision file sets (wet sanding essentially) I got the patch material modified enough for an acceptable barrel window protrusion. Next phase of testing seemed to be "ok" with the amount of hop but my accuracy was all over the place. I immediately knew what this meant. Movement. So next task went to coming up with a plan to stabilize the whole hop-up + system. Ultimately what I ended up with was the following: G&G Stock Hop-up chamber 2x Raptors Airsoft RTX Flat Hop-up Nubs: http://tinyurl.com/m3v9lce G&G Hop-up Bucking G&G Inner Barrel The hop-up bucking had the inner mound ground down (thanks airborne!) I ordered two of the Raptors Airsoft nubs, glued them together and reduced the total length of the combined nubs to 2/3 the length. This yielded a length that fit perfectly in my hop-up chamber but also utilized the most of the ER-Hop cut as possible. I also added a tiny tensioning spring to sit between the hop-up arm and the chamber. This allowed me to adjust the hop while keeping steady and consistent tension on the arm. Before, the arm would just sit freely and bounce around as BBs passed through the chamber. I also ended up teflon taping the R-Hop patch to the barrel which improved shot FPS consistency. Final config went as this: Barrel + R-hop patch + teflon tape + hop-up bucking. Great airseal. I managed to fire off a half mag before it got too dark. Shots were almost 100% better. I could kit out to a cantelope sized target at 235' using my Goldenball .30s. After that the BBs started to drop and I didn't have too much time to test further. Needless to say I am highly impressed.
  25. I personally agree with you here. Part of the "politically correct" quote scheme I have been doing is a play on the whole "you have to be all accepting and tolerant" type mentality that people try to enforce on personal opinions and beliefs that have no impact on others. Also it seems it only works when it's pertinent to the minority group or main topic of discussion. IE, if the topic was African American racism, it would only be politically incorrect if racist terms were thrown against the African Americans in the discussion. However, if the African Americans made racial slurs at Caucasians then there would be no problem. This correlates here as it is coming across to me that its ok to tell a guy who doesn't agree with homosexuality that his views are wrong but it's not OK for that guy to personally disagree with homosexuality when he has no intentions to force said belief on others. I'm sure there's another better word or phrase for this but it slips my mind. Long story short, I agree, it's pretty dumb.
