You can buy velcro and self-adhesive it onto the kit?

 

I plan to buy velcro, affix to the embroidered patch and then it will have velcro backing.

all velcro, easier and the CPU has designated locations for it.

An olive green M/88 helmet (to look like a Russian Sphere helmet), large black goggles, a Russian flag patch and an Alfa Group patch in "Sand".

 

Plan to get black Alta Knee Pads, an Assault Vest in Flora or Kamysh and some commercial MultiCam tactical shirt and trousers.

No need to pretend it looks like a Sphera,the Russians do have a variant of the m88,I forget what it's called though. It can fit in fine,Russian soldiers use whatever they get their hands on.

 

I bought a Ukranian army belt in Coyote brown,for about 5€,or 50 Grivna. Thinking of changing my loadout to Ukranian special forces,which isn't hard,all I need to a Ukraine flag patch for my BDU.

I thought i got a good deal on these gloves.........BUT after one day at sandpit they now look like this!

I've got a genuine pair, they were only £25, came new with the original tags on them as well.

 

I had some fake ones prior that were £15 and both the fakes and the new ones have torn inside the thumbs, but not to a great extent, it's only something you'd notice if I pointed it out. They both have some odd little round things on the finger tips as texturing though, for grip. On the fakes they all came off so easily I thought they might've been stickers. On the real ones they're still there, but they've worn down.

 

I actually think the fake ones are significantly more comfortable, but the real ones are real :rolleyes: and they do look cooler without the daft shiny, fake carbon fibre knuckles.

 

All in, I use the real ones, not the fakes. So take from that what you will. I've had them for about 6 months now as well, and I skirmish more or less every week.

@ Unrustle_Thine_Jimmies

 

The loadout is coming on very well. I've seen various images, and the helmets they wear do vary. With the one eye hole black balaclava, large black googles, and the M/88 helmet, it looks realistic, and as you say.. russian loadouts vary so much that you can have more leeway with loadouts than others units IMHO. I'd like a Flora vest, but it's much more expensive than the kamysh, and I prefer the Kamysh to be honest. £65, free postage from Russia.. I'll say yes to that.

 

Just waiting for my Alfa patch, I have the Russian flag arm patch, need to get the Helikon Multicam and it'll look a great loadout I hope for CQB/Semi-Urban/Urban. For the temperate, I'll swap out the Multicam for my Dutch DPM, which while it does not look British, it has that continental look, and replicates the Smog DPM, that FSB use quite well, and it cost me less than £40 for an entire set of trousers, and 3 tops of different styles.

 

What Ukrainian spetsnaz are you imitating?

Been shopping a lot this week ready for my 1st taste of Airsoft.

Most the Paintball gear has not seen action in 20 years and fair to say I put a few pounds on (Not to mention the few stone) since then so had to start again.

 

New woodland camo jacket

New woodland camo trousers

New black Mascot trouser from work (Thanks to Ian_G for that great idea)

New olive baseball caps 1 lightweight and 1 heavy also from work so cheap :)

New Tactical shirt with padded elbows so I don't hurt my arms when I collapse in a heap as I am soooo unfit.

New goggles and wire face mask (my hooter just fits in it)

New gloves (Paint on the old ones had eaten them)

New Scrim scalf

Will use an old pair of boots for now as my feet are the only thing that's the same size

 

Will add pic later when wife wakes up and I can get to the camera (She on night shift not lazy)

 

Anything else anyone can think of I forgot?

Thinking I wont need a vest the first few games as I on hire gun or will I?

Not too reflective, incredibly durable and has pretty cool feature which means you can get the light to come on just by looking at it :)

You won't need a vest until you need to carry a few mags, and if you're using hicap mags you won't actually need a vest at all, but they look cool. Best wait until you decide what AEG you want to buy so you can get something that the mags will fit into.

 

You might want to think about gloves. Carbon knuckle for cool, Kevlar & Pyrohide for waterproof & impervious enough to give you the confidence to take your time throwing lit pyrotechnics, or for protection against the sting of being hit on the hand, these.

Well done that man! Cold Steel, yeah Tariq? I've had one of those bokkens on my Amazon Wish List since before last xmas - I just haven't found the money spare so far ;)

Indeed. The bokken isn't rubber, its poly carbonate. (Misleading last post, just the knife is rubber)

 

Was expecting it to be a little weaker than it is. But you can strike really solid objects and it just keeps it shape. Already destroyed 3 boxes. The end is also for some reason strong enough to pierce its way through multiple layers of thick cardboard when you stab with it LOL.

 

Anyone looking at cold steel training products, DO IT.

Tempted to get another sword so i can have little battles with my brother XD Wanting an actual Tanto (Because tantos are just sexy) from them so might just wait til i have the cash for that. As of next month i'll have -£300 to my name unless i find a job soon XD

Most sites operate with a "it must bend about 70-90degrees" so no, these things are very rigid, so not really skirmish friendly.

I'm pretty sure my local site will allow me to use it during our private games when we book out their sites though. They know us to be safe and responsible.

 

Really it can't do any damage than an airsoft gun can. Yes its pointy and solid, but walk round a corner with a rifle and poke someone in the face, that's going to do a lot of damage too. Especially with some of the flash hider designs around.

I wouldn't poke someone with a rifle I'd shove it where the sun ain't mean't to shine and pull :P

They allow Cold Steel training swords at the GZ Weekender. I have one of these:

 

rubber-training-knives-92r14bbc.jpg

It's a semi-permanent part of my loadouts. Although knives and bayonets aren't allowed at ordinary games at my local site, they allow me to carry it for the cool factor - I just don't use it. Night games are a different story though ;) I suspect that they don't care how rigid it is because I'm 45: I'm not going to go all adrenaline monster and accidentally ram it through somebody's throat! There are rules for knife/melee weapon kills though. Usually it's that you just tap the target. For stealth kills, you tap the target and whisper "knife kill" in their ear and they don't shout "hit".

Kamysh Assault Vest from Russia, £65 inc. postage. My black balaclava, looks like :ph34r: and self-adhesive velcro strips turned up today, though they are white. Is fine for the backing of the patch, but need it ideally to be a more military colour. I'm thinking food colouring, bowl, splishy-splash, huzzah. In that order. :rolleyes:

How can they not allow rubber knives??? Kill joys :P

Need to buy another rubber bayonet. Lost the last one after i walked into a tree. Fits on the G36 quite nicely, however doesn't lock unless you file down the plastic.

Yeah I know, but they let us use them at night and let's be real, how often can you get close enough to someone in daylight for a knife kill? Pretty much only if you're hiding behind cover as they pass, right? But at night... der der duh der, der der duh der... we enter the twiglet zone! I'm not so sure I want some of the kids we get running around with rubber bayonets on their guns either :lol: I don't know how of the top of my head, but I know it would end in tears!

 

Is that the standard rubber M4 bayonet that needs filing to fit a G36?

 

Edit: oh yeah, I just bought 2 x King Arms 200rd High Capacity BB Loader - BK - £8.43 delivered from AirsoftTiger111Hk (they're on sale and the supporter's discount is worth a whole 0.30 USD)

 

Also bought 10 pk of 20mm ladder lock buckles for webbing from fleabay - £1.98 (for custom PLCE webbing)

 

And a pair of Black CS95 kecks from Magnum for a nice fair price.

 

And an A&K 50rnd Mid Cap Mag for Dragunov SVD - £18.98 inc P&P from Action Hobbies

 

And an OD Soviet Star Cap Badge - £2.30 from cosmixx_one on fleabay
