  1. Alright, you guys helped me with my last purchase, and I was thinking you could help me again. Right now I'm in the market for a carbine. Looking at some AK carbines, I found the LCT AK104 NV. It is an AK-105 (I don't know why it is listed as AK104. I think it might just be a company model number) These are the stats from Fox Airsoft, this comes pre-upgraded. It's got a barrel somewhere around one foot, between the AK-74 and AKS-74u. ~390 FPS Sidefolding stock If you plan on suggesting a different carbine, NO V2 GEARBOXES, PLEASE! I know much more about maintaining V3 gearboxes.
  2. Wow. This is a great help. I think I'm just going to save up for a nice rifle. All the reviews on the Real Sword SVD I've heard were positive. It might take an extra month (plus or minus a week) to save up for it, but it's not like I'm going to be playing for a couple months anyway, there's snow on the ground and there's only more to come (And no indoor locations nearby! All we have in my area are field locations.) As for handguns, the only piece from 'behind the Iron Curtain' I've got my hands on is the IJ-70. It works great, and the ammunition is readily available (my favorite target ammunition is Sellier and Bellot).
  3. That's a ton of information! And I thank you for it! It seems like becoming a DM is quite an investment into the sport, and I'm willing to invest, as I have a lot of downtime when not working my every day schedule. I've shot real firearms before (Mostly handguns, but I absolutely love the Russian American CM-2 for bench-rest shooting) and it seems as though most of the complexities of real life marksmanship carry on into the sport of airsoft, and that's what I'm looking for. A challenge, and that's why I'm trying to join my friend's team. When you talked about cheap rifles having the potential to be amazingly accurate in the right hands, but breaking sooner and needing re-zeroing every so often, I understood what you meant, but is it worth waiting another month (Still tons of snow here) and saving up for a high quality rifle?
  4. I have an old spring rifle with good iron sighs, but I've never tried for 200 feet. It is a reasonably good, accurate (but tough to pull the charging handle every time), spring rifle. Would that be good for practice?
  5. I'd probably enjoy any role, but I was looking at support initially because it's what we needed. The problems you stated are what I'm running into. The closest thing to an out of box DMR (Along the lines of my 'minimal modification, only gun I want to own' guideline) is the Real Sword SVD, and that's A TON of money to drop on an airsoft gun. I have $350 dollars in spending money right now that I wanted to buy an airsoft gun with, and there's always the option to wait and save more. It might take another month, though. I already know I like airsoft, so would it be worth it to buy something so expensive?
  6. It's a bunch of friends trying to start a 'professional looking' (as he calls it) mil-sim/reenactment team. The guy who's running the group has been my friend for quite some time, and I still want to be on his team once I get gear, but this has drastically changed my plans. As for a DMR, I don't know what's best. If I do accept that role, I'd really only be looking for a single, high quality gun that will last a good time (with minimal modification as I'm just getting serious about airsoft and I don't have enough knowledge for working on airsoft guns).
  7. You guys, thanks for all the help, but the leader informed me that he found someone that already has an M60VN is joining and that the Designated Marksman role that needs to be filled before we can have two people with the same role. Now I don't know what to do. Should I wait until someone else comes along to be designated marksman so I can play a support role or should I just volunteer for designated Marksman? I wanted to start playing over spring and summer, and I don't know if there's anyone that'll volunteer for a designated marksman position.
  8. And also, I was thinking of ordering it from Evike because my friend said he gets consistent, good service from them. Does anyone else agree or does anyone disagree with this?
  9. So I guess I'll be getting the CYMA. This is a gun that I plan on upgrading at some point, but probably won't be doing anything to it right away. Are there any upgrades that I might want to look into in the future? Thanks for the help!
  10. Maybe he had some hop-up issues or bad BBs? I've heard good about CYMA, especially for the money. But correct me if I'm wrong on that one.
  11. Alright, I'm joining my friend's airsoft team, but I need a gun. I've played airsoft before, borrowing AEGs from him. He told me that the team needs a designated marksman or support gunner, and I'm opting for the support choice. My first thought was the CM.052. I was thinking this because it is affordable (The highest I've set my personal budget at is $325 with a little wiggle room) It has a bi-pod out of the box and a generous hi-cap magazine. If anyone has some ideas for a beginning support gun, I'd love to hear them! Thanks, Matt
  12. Well, some of my friends are trying to get me into mil-sim 'airsofting'. I've been looking it up, and it seems like a good way get out of the house and have some fun, so I decided to join this forum to learn more about airsoft and seek advice. Thanks, Matt7N10
