So my wife got me an XDM for christmas. Well i got it she just paid for it lol. I decided i wanted it Stippled but thought i'd give it a crack myself. As you do.

 

It may not be to everyone's liking but I think i've done a cracking job and it looks pretty smart.

Ian liked this? But... But there are rails and stuff on that AK!

I'm not a total purist, i just can't abide Crane stocks on AK's. Even though some MVD units do actually use them on real steel. But those arses have been photographed wearing multicam ffs, not even a Russian version of it either, actual Crye MC.

 

This is what the well dressed Spetsnaz soldat is carrying this season:

In keeping with the updated AK look, pics of my SRC AKS74U GBBR (reposted from AK picture thread) having just fitted a Vector rail (not straightforward!), AFG, soundhog and reflex holo sight. :)

Finally got my M4 back together after much wailing and gnashing of teeth over barrel lengths and nut threads!

 

I present my Strike Back Stonebridge-esque impression:

Assuming you can make it out in the background clutter!

Laser is sat being all redundant as unfortunately the gun is front wired (plus the battery space in an MOE stock is nonexistent) so I've had to use a PEQ box (not strictly canon for a SB Stonebridge M4 but there you go - needs must). Torch is around somewhere but I'm waiting on a new short scout troch to go instead.

It's an ICS short KAC QD one. Had to hunt high and low for it but found one on Ehobby Asia in the end. There's a couple of different short KAC QD ones out there but being a bit anal about getting the right one it had to be the ICS one as it has 9 holes along the length of the cover. Weighs a crapping ton though. The barrel extends through it so I've managed to keep it at 300mm.

 

Detail whore that I am it is winding me up that the rail is half an inch too long, it's the wrong EO Tech and I don't have the right rear sling mount but screw it, it's cost me a small fortune in parts already! Which of course means there will most likely be some M4 front end bits going up for sale in the near future!

Here's a picture of my gun......

 

TM HK416D Devgru, have added a Green dot sight for closer targeting as well as a bug buster for longer range targeting.

 

She's currently in at Fire Support having some upgrades to take the FPS to 345, looking forward to getting her back & putting to good use

Do the optics in the middle not make it quite heavy?

 

Not particularly heavy, the green dot sight weighs nothing at all so balances the two out. I'm far from what would be considered as strong (Fairly feeble actually!) and generally have no issues here.

Surely having the second sight bolted on just gets in the way?

I suppose it depends on how he uses it...Running around yes, I think it would. Lying in prone I dont think it would be as much of an issue.

I see your sight meme and raise you...OPTIC THUNDER!!!

You guys - it's all about the meme's!

 

Any how despite the p**s taking (I was thinking Inception... a sight within a sight within a sight.... Yes three layers!) the two sights suit my style of game play, this set up is when i'm skirmishing in dense woodland as I like to camp (Yes i'm a camper), the bug buster helps me with some spotting at distance through the dense woodland & for those that creep up the green dot does what it needs! For more open skirmishing (UCAP Sandpit etc.) it's just the green dot!

 

Feeling that I'm needing to justify my necessity for my sight obsession!

MikeMarden -

 

I just find it abit strange the fact that you have two sights mounted the way you do. Not the fact that you have two sights, thats pretty normal. Would it not make more sense to have the sight on a flip to the side mount? Rather than mounted on the Eotech itself?

Personally if I were to mount a sight on a sight, I'd put it on top of it so it was at least in line with what I'm shooting at.

 

That way you're just compensating up/down not left/right too?

Good point and there's a reason for it, I wear a face mask & looking down the length of sight whilst having my cheek pressed against the gun etc. is quite challenging & isn't instant, so sticking the bug buster on the side means I don't press my cheek against anything & not obscuring my sight!

Fair enough. That's a common problem with wearing a face mask. You ever thinking of getting shooting glasses/goggles?

I wear a set of mesh goggles with a lower face mask combined so my face is full covered, I must admit when I first started it Airsoft I only wore the glasses, however after being twatted in the face a couple of times at close range I kept finding myself turning my back to anyone coming face on at close range which obviously wasn't good, so I opted for the mask, whilst it does have it's down sides I personally feel a lot more confident wearing it & am certainly a hell of a lot braver when face on at close proximity.

My first ever airsoft gun; and a GBB one at that :D

 

Ahhhh a man after my own heart! I've only ever used GBBs, it is a labour of love in Winter, but when its all coming together, its worth it! got my son a TM H&K MP7 GBB, he loves it and its an awesome CQB weapon!
