Just got a Mk23 delivered this morning, step 2 on my journey to becoming another cliche sniperwanker

 

Nice, remember to get it up to about 1.4J, point-blank folk in the teeth with 0.45g, then say "Stop whining, cheater, it's only a pistol."

Havent chronod it yet but had a few test shots with it at work, even with .25s it feels quite punchy!

Don't think I'll be doing any power mods...

You will, soon after you have shot a tweaked TM Mk23 😉😂

And another little bundle of kit just came in the door!

6600 .28s, a dump pouch for my black kit setup, and a mk23 holster for my sniperwanker loadout 20220429_141942.thumb.jpg.bbfe47fdbac3c5b53763fcbdcf7c6ad3.jpg

Haha, honestly I need 1 more to complete the loadout. 4 in the carrier, 2 in the belt, 2 in the leg rig, 1 in the gun. 8 was the most I could get (limited them to 4 per customer, plus I got 3 spares with the MWS I bought), and at 35rds per mag I'm not even carrying a single m4 high cap in BBs yet :P

That's a shit load of weight you're gonna be carrying on you. But you're definitely prepared for any skirmish or milsim venture with that loadout. I've been running a measly 3 for the past 4 games whilst battling the urge not to full auto in open field games.

an M4 to G36 mag adaptor

 

On doing some forensic analysis, I've had to file mine a bit both on the outside at the top, to get it into the G36 magwell, and also inside to get STANAG mags to go in without using Thor's hammer.  I may also have run a rat-tail file up the BB tube as it's a little kinky as stock.

Thanks for the pointers, hopefully I'll have the G36 by wednesday which should give me time to iron out any kinks before sundays game.

Yeah, though that is somewhat the idea. Whenever I play rifleman, I play it for weight loss; those 8 magazines are in addition to the weighted plates in my plate carrier. Won't find me running as a speedyboi as I'm just not built for it, even when I'm slim, though it's one hell of a workout playing slow and sneaky while lugging all that weight around. Plus it's nice and immersive, and I'm a bit of an immersion nerd!

I can't believe you found a pic of me at a skirmish with my usual compliment of magazines! Normally they're all high caps, but sniping has taught me some trigger discipline now ;)

I'm a fan of cheeky cheap items especially if they are G&P .

Grabbed this on ebay not long ago for £34 shipped!! Could not pass that up , fully working with a charger.. lower handguard has been repaired in the past and good chance I'm not going to use it at my woodland site 🤣

New kit for a very old and tired stock TM Sig 226 , over 10yrs old , probably closer to 15 and was my back up & winter use 226 back in the day . About 6months ago I fitted the threaded barrel and it’s bugged me ever since … so now time for a full face lift .

It's not that bad, currently I carry 5 mws mags on my operator belt (as well as 4 glock mags and my holster and grenade), 3 in my chest rig and 1 in the gun if I want. If you're smart about weight distribution and cinching your gear, the weight isn't that noticeable.

Got my JG G36 today, in time for Sundays game. First impressions are pretty good! The M4 mag adaptor also works very well and is very easy to install and remove (though it did need a little fettling to get mags to sit nicely in it, as @Rogerborgwarned me, but this was done a few days ago with a few strokes of the file).

I also got a 2nd hand viper gun carrier for £20. Pretty much as new, just a little faded.

Both purchased from Action Hobbies, who have been a pleasure to deal with.

Funnily enough, I bought a JG G36C from Action Hobbies back in 2008ish as my second gun.

 

Very good value for money - they are commonly associated with rental guns so lack the 'cool' factor these days. Don't see many G36s round my parts these days outside of the rental punters.

I do have a soft spot for the G36, but it was the association with rental guns (and general good vibes here and elsewhere) that convinced me to buy it...

If you're after a reliable workhorse AEG, then logically you can't go too far wrong looking at what guns the sites are using as rentals. 

Other points in its favour were the low comb of the stock, which will work with a Warq when I get one, and the fact it can fold up and fit in my general gear bag.

 

She's all scoped up and ready to play now, got a rough zero in the back garden. Shame the red tape is showing on the mag (it doesn't on the M4) but you can't have everything.
