  1. Interestingly enough, you can see a lot of EOTech holographic sights being used by Spetsnaz from 4:17 on in this video: So it might not be too odd to slap one on an AK if doing an impression. I'm just trying for whatever most suits a Russian FSB/MVD-esque loadout.
  2. As a side note; what kind of rig is this? And what sort of vest is featured in the second picture? I'm shooting for a Russian look following these sort of loadouts; any pointers to some gear would be appreciated as well.
  3. If I choose to get an AK, I'd like to get a Kobra sight to top it off. I've found this one here: http://kalinkaoptics.com/kobra-military-re...side-mount.html I was wondering if that's an optimal price and if I could find a similar one for less. Has anyone used use a Kobra sight?
  4. I took a look; found Umarex's full metal 416. Not sure there are any others out there; it's rather pricey. My other pick for a carbine would probably be this: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?...roducts_id=6235 How's that sound? On the Russian side of things, I'm looking at these: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?...roducts_id=4006 http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=12494 - I like this one for the rail mounts Since there aren't any AK successors I'm looking for, I may as well look at what's available. I'd like a gun with rails so I can slap a foregrip and optic on at the minimum.
  5. I really like the look of these; I was curious if anyone has one and would like to share their thoughts on them. I was considering buying one for airsoft when it's cooler out. To my understanding the're a few different variants, some with seasonal camo patterns. I've only seen them for sale here; Anywhere else I could look? http://www.soviet-propaganda.com/index.php...&cPath=1_24 They come in more patterns than I thought.
  6. I have a few different makes in mind and I was curious to know which specific brands and models I should look at. -M416 -AEK-971 -AN-94 Price range is about $500-$600; if I can go even lower, that'd be fantastic. I've seen one or two M416 models online already. I'm mostly curious about the other two. I find the AK's successors to be neat and unique, so if I can find any of good quality -preferably these two- I'll most likely give them a shot. Realism, quality/durability and good stock performance are my priorities. I'm doubting that anyone makes the rarer AK-inspired guns; I just thought I'd throw this out there. Any other modern AK recommendations would be cool.
  7. I've decided to go the M4 route. I think I'm deciding on this one. http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=6235 Should be able to use it for field and CQB and it offers plenty of rail space. $210 is an ideal price for the gun alone.
  8. Right, though how difficult is it? I don't want to mess around too much with internals - maybe there's a good tutorial I can use? Fair enough - $150-250 is an ideal range.
  9. I did give a price range. As for guns I've found that I'd be interested in, here are three: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=6992 http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?...roducts_id=7967 http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?...roducts_id=6236 They're pretty compact and easy to maneuver in close quarters. They've got rails to mount foregrips and sights (MP9 already has a foregrip). The FPS isn't too high and they seem like good guns. The MP9 is gas, however.
  10. Cool, I'll keep my eye on this one. Are there any other models you'd recommend?
  11. Ah, I forgot. I'd like not to go over $250. Too much more than that is pushing the envelope. I'd still have to spend money on magazines, BBs and the like.
  12. So I've been interested in airsoft for a very long time but I've never gotten around to give it a serious go. I know a few friends of mine have played and enjoyed it and I'd like to get in on the action. The only airsoft guns I've worked with have been cheap, Walmart-sold, spring-powered shotguns that a buddy of mine had lying around. I'd be starting off mostly in the woods or around our private residences, so I'd be doing a combination of CQB and close-mid range field with lots of trees. I'd like to have a versatile gun to handle both types of play. Assault rifles or SMGs would suit me fine as long as they're compact and easy to maneuver with. Although an assault rifle sounds like a good investment for field, something about wielding an ultra-compact SMG like an MP7 or MP9 sounds appealing to me. If I joined a team later on, I think I'd play a standard rifleman. I'm not terribly picky on any specific model - I like having rail systems and would probably invest in a foregrip and some type of red dot sight. Though most players I see use a M4 or M16-like gun and frankly I'd like to be a little different. I wouldn't mind using an AK and playing some kind of OP4. I'd like to have a more modern gun in current use. Since I'm new, I also want to try for a reliable brand and not have to worry about tweaking the internals around very much. It'd probably be a good skill to learn, but right now I'm just getting my feet wet. The FPS would have to be low enough to use in close quarters but high enough for longer ranges.
  13. Hey guys! I'm going for a generic Russian/Eastern-Bloc loadout based in the early to mid 90's. I'll be using it for the winter/fall so I'm going to be wearing a heavy parka over a BDU shirt. I was at an outdoors store and they had these Czech parkas on sale, so I grabbed one. Here's a pic: Mine doesn't have a hood however, but that's not a big issue. For headwear I was considering either a black wool hat or my Soviet army ushanka. The faux fur is just like the lining on the parka, so I thought it'd work out. Although the hat is Russian and the coat Czech, would that matter much? I don't think it would be noticeable at first glance, or a big deal to say the least. Then again, the loadout is supposed to be somewhat generic rather than a specific country (though Russia is the main inspiration). Anyway, I don't have a BDU shirt or pants picked out. I was considering a flecktarn pattern, which would work real well in fall, or some kind of woodland pattern. (non-NATO) Some reference pictures which inspired the idea were Russian soldiers fighting in Chechnya ('94-'96): http://uploaded.fresh.co.il/2005/02/12/46020080.jpg http://www.worldpress.org/images/20050308-russian-army.jpg My parka is OD rather than camo-patterned like these Russian ones, but I don't have a huge problem with that. Any suggestions or comments? Thanks in advance!
  14. Yeah, I'm not keen on paying that much. Where can I find some of the newer ones?
  15. So I've pretty much decided on my gun (AK-74), but now I need to figure out what kind of layout I want. I don't think I want to impersonate any military in particular, but I'd like to stick with European camo types since I find them more interesting. As of now, I'm just concentrating on a summer/fall loadout, so I want my gear to be lightweight. I guess if I had to describe what I'm going for, it'd be like a ragtag/freelancer-type look. I've got boots, I just need a chest rig, BDUs and gloves. I'll probably just wear the BDU leggings and a dark t shirt rather than full BDUs depending on the weather. For headgear, I'll probably just wear a green or black brimmed cap. I live in CT in a very wooded area, with lots of greens, browns and occasionally oranges like so:
