  1. It would be for a more high speed looking Russian or American loadout.
  2. If airsoft is 99% impressions, most of those 99% are doing it wrong. Do you have any idea how many things in airsoft exist that you'd never see even if you were in the military for 30 years? And people act like the stuff is issued out to everyone. Contrary to popular belief in airsoft, DMR is not actually a weapon system. It is a roll in a squad or fire team. And that roll is to fill in the gap between the sniper and the rifleman. Most of the time (even in SF type units) the DMR roll is a guy with Colt M4 with an Acog. And not something that looks like an LVOA or has a suppressor or crazy looking compensator. The guy in the DMR roll NEVER has anything even resembling a sniper rifle (m14, etc.). That's for the sniper. I can see why someone would disagree with an AK that has a short barrel and folding stock being a DMR. But that's not what we are talking about. Basically, by military definition the DMR is a rifle with a scope and a person that knows how to shoot. So, if AK74/47s were never intended to fulfill a DMR type roll why do they have scope mounts?
  3. OK. Maybe it seemed like you thought I didn't know what I was talking about. Either way, I apologize if I was rude. Maybe it's just the way I read it. It's hard to know someone's tone through text. I've also seen real AK DMRs. I've seen pictures of Russian SF with different types of AKs set up as DMRs. I've also seen U.S. SF and contractors use AKs in every configuration you can think of. They use them for everything from DMRs to room clearing monsters. I got to see those in real life while in the military.
  4. I don't know about the guy that started the thread, but I don't plan on building a true DMR. I'm going for an accurate mid-range gun (on semi) with full auto, support style capability. The optic I got doesn't magnify, it's just a 1x red/green dot, but it looks almost like a full scope. It's a 40mm with 4 MOA and its about 5" long. So having something like that kind of gives it a DMRish look. The gun's purpose (and my roll) is to assist and support my team's sniper. Properly positioned we can cover a large area without revealing each other's position (or at least I won't reavel his position). Then if needed(like if we get flanked) I have the ability to switch to full auto and mow fools down or provide cover fire if my sniper needs to move. Seeing that my AK has pretty good range and 550rd flash mags, it's one of the best guns to do the job I need my gun to do.
  5. I don't know what a $25 rail mod is. But what ever it is,I don't have to do it to attach an optic. The rail attachment for the Russian scope mount works just fine. Mounting a camera behind the scope to get a better sight picture just sounds stupid. I'm getting the impression you have no idea what you're talking about.
  6. I did a lot of online research before I bought an AK. I ended up getting a CYMA cm048. I would recommend it over pretty much anything other than a full custom gun. Real wood, full metal inside and out, high torque motor, m120 spring. CYMA was already known to make good AKs and when they came out with the new models (cm03x, cm04x, cm05x) they made them even better by including things that people usually do as an upgrade. The cm02x line of CYMA AKs is there budget line. I've heard they are OK but the construction and performance is nothing like the cm048. While doing my research I didn't find any bad reviews of CYMA AKs. Definitely check out YouTube reviews of all the models you're considering. And don't just look at reviews from the major stores. They are trying to sell you a gun so they won't give it a bad review. They do tend to explain more about the gun than independent reviews though because they have experience and access to a lot of guns to compare. Also look at some repair and upgrade videos for each model. That'll give you a good idea of possible weak points.

  8. I don't plan on using the iron sights. That's the point of having optics. You're talking about building an AK DMR. How do you plan on running optics? DMRs don't use iron sights. You can't just build a high power rifle and call it a DMR. It has to look the part too. I only use the front sight most of the time anyway, so having a 1/8th inch of foam on the stock isn't going to hinder me much. I don't see how I can mess up attaching optics to a rail and putting tape on my stock.
  9. Yeah. I did all that already. I'm the guy that was talking to you about AK DMRs in another thread. The reason I'm looking for poly stuff us so I can have the option to give it a more tactical look
  10. I also re-did the wood on mine. I used cherry wood stain and finished with some linseed oil. After the linseed oil was dry I rubbed it with a cloth until it had a slightly dull finish (as if it was nice and shiny at one point but is now a bit battle worn). I'm going for a kind of rebel or guerrilla look rather than a high speed, tactical look. I saw that same levelcap video. He gave me the idea to put a barrel mounted rail on my AK. I might order one and a tac light. I've got the rail that attaches to the Russian scope mount, but no optics yet. I'm also going to make a "rebel style" cheek pad/riser. It will be a bit of foam across the top(middle/mid-rear, not the whole stock) wrapped with hockey tape. it's going to look cooler than it probably sounds.
  11. I was actually just trying to find AK DMR builds on YouTube like 2 minutes before I saw this post. I think there aren't too many because not too many people are fans of AKs in general. There are also things like the dragonov, which is basically an AK sniper. I feel like any fixed stock AK would b good platform for a DMR. I'm toying with the idea myself. I have a CYMA cm048. Which is a wood furniture AK 74. It's got a fixed stock and full length barrel. It also has a 2-3 inch tube style flash hider (came stock on the gun) that gives it a bit more length. It's seems to me like the major requirements for DMR are long barrel and a scope. If I go DMR with my AK it will actually be more of a DMR look rather than a true DMR build. I've got an m120 spring that gets me about 400 FPS. I don't really want to ga faster than that because it will limit the fields I can play at. Im thinking about a flat/r hop and a different inner barrel to get me a bit more accuracy and tighter grouping.
  12. Private Military Contractor. It's basically civilian clothes (jeans and a T-shirt) with some military gear like a plate carrier or chest rig, and maybe some knee pads. PMCs also wear two/three solid colors like I mentioned in the other post. Check Google images or YouTube for PMC loadouts.
  13. I'd go with solid ranger or OD green for Florida if you don't like camo. Or mix and match solid colors.(black and tan, black and green, green and tan, etc). The main idea is to break up the human shape. It all depends on how you play. If you're out side sneaking around and hiding, camo is definitely good (or solid natural colors). But if you're going to be up running and gunning the whole time it doesn't matter nearly as much. A guy running across a field looks like a guy running across a field no matter what he's wearing. Depending on your gun and gear (and environment) you can always go with a PMC look.
  14. There are 4 or 5 guys from the Bay Area that are interested in teaming up. But that's like 4 hours away. We are trying to figure out if it's possible or worth it. Other than them, there are only 1 or 2 other people interested. I'd like everyone to be close to the Redding Area so we can meet up more often. Regardless of the above info, are you still interested?
  15. Do you already have an AK to work on or are you looking for an AK to buy?
