    Are Wiley-X SG1s good? I want something as low-profile as glasses but retaining the same protection as goggles and the SG1s seem to fit that perfectly. Where can I pick these up new for cheap?

    Also are there any good glasses besides SG1s? Some glasses I've tried leave a huge gaping gap between my face and the glasses at the bottom, big enough where a BB can hit my cheek bone and refract into my eye.

    I <3 Bullpup. Seriously, there's really not a more versitile system that I can think of.
    Just take an AR receiver and you could buy parts for it to fulfill any role you want it to be. That's versatility.

    So I've never used Airsoft before, and don't plan on getting deeply into it. But I would like a fairly cheap (<$80 (USD)) rifle for just general target practice (no skirmishes, or anything like that - just shooting some cans and bottles). Suggestions?

    I live in New England, for the record. Also, sorry if this sort of thing is asked a million times a day and the same answer is given every time.

    Thanks.

    Oh, and anything special I should know? I know the obvious stuff (finger off the trigger, don't overcharge..), but anything that you wouldn't expect a newbie to know?

    If you want a cheap rifle just for shooting cans, you can't go wrong with a spring sniper rifle. Unless you want an AEG of course.

    If you're looking for a gun mainly used for plinking and have absoloutely no intention of airsofting, you're much better off with a bb gun, mainly because the the gun itself is much more accurate and faster than a airsoft gun

    Edited:

    Not to mention the guns are relatively cheaper than airsoft guns and you could use .22 pellets which can be filled with match tips to become explosive rounds :q:

    I haven't heard anything particularly good about anything made by Swissarms. Its all pretty much rebranded chinashit as far as I can tell.

    Cold steel ones are probably safer

    And they look cooler.

    Red Ryder bb gun is incredibly inaccurate and suffers from a low muzzle velocity, only uses ball pellets, but reliable iirc

    I suggest going to a sports store and ask around for a better gun that shoots harder and more accurately; I'm sure they'll point you to a good one

    Is camo tape (like this) a viable alternative to permanent paint? When wrapped around a rifle's stock/handguard/etc, I mean.

    Yeah camo tape is perfectly fine as alternative to painting your AEG

    Hey guys, I have a M4 with a fixed front sight. Now the problem is, I'm trying to install a custom handguard on it but
    it's missing the little ring behind the front sight, so the handguard doesn't "plop" into place. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Anyone know how to remove the barrel clamp on an M203? Just bought one to mount onto my SR10 and the gas block is in the way.

    It's an Echo 1 M203 by the way.

    I'll ask what I asked a few days ago again as I didn't get any help and I may as well try again.

    I have a CA M15A4 tactical carbine (google it), it has a fixed stock, but I want to replace it with a crane stock. Only problem is, the battery is a large type one, and it's wired to fit in the stock. Could I get a stock which fits the battery in?

    OK, I got it off but now I have another problem. The trigger guard for the M203 just falls down, it doesn't stay up... how do I make it stay up?

    I suppose you could get a large to small converter to go along with the crane battery. Im not sure of how much room there would be, though.

    Also, OFWGKTA.

    Edited:

    Oops, missread that. Okay, if you get a crane stock, you need a crane stock battery. A stick type might work, but its usually best to go nunchuck or "crane type". They dont make large type batteries that will fit that as far as I know, so youll still need a converter or you could snip the large head and splice a small one.

    Ahh okay thanks, I'll look round and sum up a price then. My M4 looks horrible with a full stock.

    Odd Future is where it's at.

    Ended up putting a small piece of electrical tape on the piece that allows the trigger guard to move. It works for now... but I hate using tape to fix shit cuz it's too ghetto and looks dumb as fuck.

    Need some help. For some reason I can't find the lengths of standard M4 and M16 handguards. I want to buy a rail system but I'm not sure how long it should be.

    The M4 RIS I'm trying to get is 6.5"
    The M16 RIS I want is 11.5"

    Are these the correct lengths? Should be from the Delta Ring to the front sight post.
