  1. Swings and roundabouts, everyone has their idea of what is 'best'
  2. Prommy for my Aeg as sizing was better. Maple leaf crazy jet for my mk23, as it's meant to stabilize the bb better.
  3. I have the Val and whilst it's great, there are a few niggles with it. The nuts and bolts are made from mild steel, so go easy with the allen keys. Mid caps can be a pain to source, firesupport or TaiwanGun being the easiest to source. The battery wires run through the silencer mount, many have cut these wires so go easy every time. I'm thinking of using some sugru to keep them in place. Out of the box it's pretty accurate, use a Lonex hop unit others I've tried have issues. Hop rubber wise I'm yet to find one I'm happy with. As said, hop, barrel and spring are the best mods for this Rif. It weighs a ton, so factor that on a hot day. Scope is a pain, I have some sort of Cyma weaver mount for mine so have ordered a cheap holo for now. Svd mounts might fit, but I can't honestly comment.
  4. Bit of a thread necro, but photography been at it a few years now. Goldfinch by darren bray, on Flickr
  5. Stti mk23, thing is like a laser, outranges many rifs.
  6. You're talking about the token silhouette shot, trouble is you need a decent light source behind them and they need to set up for it. All good after game, but during you'd be very lucky to pull it off. You would be hard pushed to go arty, best option would be to lower your aperture, and aim to get that blurry background, least for individuals or any group. Least then it'll play in your favour for lighting. Having everything in focus detracts from the individual you're shooting.
  7. Lens wise a good 70-200 f2.8 and a small prime would be ideal I'd imagine. Keep the sun behind you, never shoot into it, it'll wash out your shots. If you must photo someone who is being sneaky, try and use live view, but keep the camera at such an angle that it doesn't look like anyone's there, as said you'll give them away. Leave the camera on aperture priority, you won't have time to go full manual, hell it's rare when I do. Keep your focus on single point, with so many things around it'll have a hard time figuring out what you really want to photo. Lens protection I do know sigma have a ceramic filter that is nigh on indestructible but it'll cost you. When you photo people's faces, go soft on processing, little to no sharpening if anything you want less, purple don't want to see every blemish on their face. Learn to use the spot removal tool, and how to come things out in PS. Just enjoy yourself, it's not as complicated as people make out, just use a bit of common sense. Don't worry about finding a style, it'll do your head in figuring this out, let it find you. I've been at it for years, and only now starting to figure out what my style is.
  8. Ouch cut them with the silencer eh, certainly weren't thinking with that idea. Mine's the outer bolt that hold the gearbox on, stupid thing is made with mild steel so the allen key easily rounds out. I've bought a vernier, and plan on replacing all the cheap bolts with decent stainless or even Ti. Out of all bolts on the pdf, they don't list that friggin gearbox bolt, so I'm gonna dremel each side and use a mole grips to get it off.
  9. Cheers mate, just need to get this mot done then crack on and fix my as val. Haven't played for months, I'm dying to get out and play.
  10. So what adapter are you using?
  11. Don't forget Scarpa, I have their r-evo plus gtx as they're leather and my Alt-Berg defenders are nowhere as good.
  12. Don't need to do that, found some rechargeable lipo pp3 batteries as well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MATTS-Dual-20x10mm-9V-Fan-Kit-Airsoft-Paintball-Goggle-Mask-Anti-Fog/183209441147?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  13. Got one, thermal lenses still fogged. Got a dual fan setup for it, fingers crossed.
  14. Right finally had some time so cracked on sorting out my new webbing, more to come of course.
