PAINTBALL AND AIRSOFT THREAD


I've seen only scattered threads about these, so I decided to make it official.

Rules
-Don't antagonize the other sport. "Airsoft is for pussies" and "Paintball is gay" are not exactly constructive. Of course, it is the Pit but I don't want a flame thread.
-Try to answer others' questions.
- General discussion and specific questions accepted.
-If you feel like it throw in a review of your gun

If someone wants to get some info on either sport I'll edit it in here as a FAQ.


I'm going to double post, but only because throwing a question in the original post seems stupid.

Airsoft question:

I'm thinking of buying a low cost pistol ($20-45) to get started. Any suggestions for the gun or accesories? I'm thinking 200-280 fps.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

Nice, I was thinking of making one of these. Anyways I have an Echo 1 G36c and love it, although it has started cooking fuses recently.

And to TS, don't get one of those. Save up for an Echo 1 AEG. They're cheap (about 150) and work better than most 300-400 dollar guns.

I was thinking pistol because the people I was going to playing with all were using one.

I played paintball for the first time in many years today. Got a few nice welts, and had tons of fun. Too bad my gun shoots like it was made by the French. Perhaps I need a new one.

Did it shoot a little white flag out the tip?


Paintball is fun but I can't see squat with that full face mask, because I can't wear my glasses too. I remember I was at this place, Friendly Fire Paintball, and there was this tower hideout and a small base where me and my friends were. My friend runs to a rock to take cover and gets shot in the nads and my bud was like "We've got to save Ryan's Privates!"

His name was Sean...

I have an ICS Full Metal M4 Airsoft Rifle, 480 FPS.

Thing is a monster. We have a place that used to be a summer camp, with abandoned buildings and woods, that we play in nearly every other day. It's fun times. Paintball is fun, but shelling out 50 bucks for paintballs every time I play isn't.

And I have seen some pistols that can shoot both airsoft pellets and paintballs.

Your gun is currently illegal. A fully automatic airsoft gun has to be 350FPS or lower for it to be legal. If you take that into a game site, they will more than likely not let you play.

Just a heads up.

Love airsoft. I own a Tokyo Marui AK-47 Beta Spetsnaz, TM Glock 18c, Classic Army G36, UTG Shotty, some crappy spring pistol, and a TM M92 gas pistol. Don't really think that this thread will last long with paintball mixed into airsoft though.

Maybe where you live, but in the states i don't think it is illegal, but most places would reject you any way cause that would cause some damage to someone.

Ah fair enough, I'm in the UK.

480FPS is near the maximum for sniper rifles over here.

That thing would rape someone if you use a heavy enough weight and a good scope and hop-up

I can see that tuning on a sniper rifle indeed. There's nothing more dull than a sniper that can't shoot far enough to be useful.


on topic, I got a mp5sd5 oldschool :P

dating back from the days when I first started playing Rainbow Six. I just loved being like a ninja with silencer etc. Still got it because it just looks awesome. However I do want a full metal one :O

Nice, I used to have an MP5 like that. And second to the whole sniper rifle thing. The G36c is a better sniper than a bolt action my brother's friend has.

If it's just coming out of the fitting you probably need some teflon tape on the threads going into the reg and the threads on the SS line. That should cover both areas it could be coming from.

I played D3 NPPL (back when the NPPL still existed) ball back in high school. I got fed up with the way my team was being run and the way the sport in general was headed (I felt like I was going to a damn fashion show every weekend) and quit in '05. Airsoft was hugely popular in Hawaii so I picked that up for a year or so and the decided that real guns were where it was at. With the increasing popularity of GBB rifles in airsoft, I've been considering getting back into airsoft...the GHK AK-74 GBBs are ****ing cool (not as cool as my real '74 but, then again, I can't shoot that in my basement).
