BASRs generally get a 50fps lead on DMRs.

I guess the reason is health and safety, but that is not very fair if the DMR has a cap on it's rate of fire.

 

Bolt Action Sniper Rifles usually have an FPS limit (on 0.2g) at 500 (2.32J) vs the 450 (1.88J) allowed for DMRs (at most sites, admitedly some allow 500, but others are 370-425).

 

Why is this not more refined to specify the rate of fire of the DMR. If a DMR is locked to fire at a rate of fire between 12 and 24 RPM (rounds per minute, also 2-4 rounds per 10 seconds), is there any good reason to prevent the user having access to the 0.44J difference?

 

Or would it be argued that it was no longer a DMR because such a restriction makes it into some quirk of non real existence? As Semi auto guns should fire as fast as you can pull the trigger.

 

I'm weighing up buying a BASR vs a multiple upper receiver platform (probably m27 if the price is right).

Long story short, get a BASR.

 

They are fun to use, perform well and will likely cost less than a DMR.

 

Sites views on DMR's are unlikely to change, some sites request that you can only use a DMR if it exists in real life, theres a trigger delay as you've stated etc and others simpl don't have them.

 

I imagine the difference in FPS/Joule limit is because the BASR requires a different style of play, tiny ammo count, time between shots etc

If a DMR was locked to that rate of fire then you would have people with bolt actions shooting faster. In that scenario there would be no reason to not allow a DMR to shoot at the same muzzle velocity as a BASR.

 

However in practice the rules regarding DMRs are allover the place, so one site might say 500 FPS but a 1 second delay on shots, another it's 425 and the third has no rules so if it's over 350 you can't use it. I think in reality any sort of shot delay is next to impossible to enforce if it's not controlled by the gun itself. This is probably the reason a lot of sites have rules that to me imply they don't really want to encourage their use.

 

I'd get a BASR if it was up to me, I pretty much don't see the point in setting up a DMR with the rules as they are currently. Aside from the fact most people will say it's a ballache to get a DMR shooting well.

Some mosfets and/or mil sim (according to burst kong thingy 3 or something)

have the feature to lock to semi with a min 3 sec to 5 sec delay so a dmr mofo can't spam like f*ck

emulating a similar time a bolty can take to prep/fire

 

Similar I guess is that site will know a bolty isn't gonna go overkill on people in general like a dmr nooby could

bolt will be more accurate & instant or high response as it is pre-cocked awaiting target/victim making every shot count

 

end of the day - I admire any good sniper or dmr mofo, I know it wouldn't suit me as I enjoy my very frequent walks to respawn/dead zone

(sometimes think I should just be deployed to defend the dead zone as I know the area so damn well)

 

Think it won't hurt to test the water with a BASR - even a so-so cheap one to have a go and see if the sniper role is for you

if you can stick at it then go for it along with trying to get it the very best you can get it to perform

if not - well you lost very little really on a basic out of box one, but at least you have tried it to see what its all about

Before posting this I tried looking on youtube for clips showing airsoft BASR fire rates, best quality results I got were 3.5 seconds without any apparent rush.

With mancraft or wolverine it's about 1/sec.

One day I will get around to getting my SMLE working again. It was gas powered so maybe I will use HPA and you can bet that it will beat the ROF of any restricted DMR :ph34r:

The SMLE was noted for the ROF that troops were able to get out of it and unlike spring powered snipers, gas power doesn't require you to put much force into cocking the gun. Also cocking this particular gun only requires the 1st 1/2 inch of movement of the bolt.

If you want ROF with a sniper then gas powered bolt action is the way to go but you will want to convert it to use HPA for consistency.

personally I'd say that a DMR (providing there's no stupid restriction on how many times you're allowed to fire in a second/minute) is more effective than a bolt action in gameplay terms, albeit possibly less fun.

Mine stayed a DMR for 4 games. The few extra feet the higher FPS gave me didn't overule the MED and semi auto restrictions that came with it, Now I have a very consistent and balanced AEG that shoots better than most without any of the hassle. Its just long, heavy and clunky.

 

Just my 2c, I didn't find having a DMR offered anything more than an extension to my willy and ego.

 

l33t as fuck tho.
