    Where does an RPK end?

    Your question has basically been answered here already. In real steel there are a lot of differences between an AK and an RPK or any rifle and support weapon for that matter. But in regards to airsoft specifically you pretty much nailed it with the stock, bipod, longer barrel and drum mag. As far as whether or not you will be able to use said support weapon in MilSim type events if you don't have one or more of those features I think would depend on the event and its hosts. For me personally I'm not going to get too caught up on all of that and I would probably let it slide even if I was hosting a MilSim. Some players want to slap a drum mag on their HPA ARP9 or whatever just so they can spray and pray and not have to reload very often. I would just check with the EOs before you attend said event or bring a backup weapon just in case they tell you no. Actually a backup is a good idea anyways. Years ago a player asked if he could use a Shotgun (I think it was one of those 8mm ones) and he had the EOs okay, long story short day of the event came and they changed their mind and said no go. The Elysium AK was pretty awesome looking to be honest. ~Joker

    Aug 29th OP Charlie Foxtrot

    Hello everyone! Section 8 Airsoft has been given the opportunity to host a game at Sherwood Forest in LaPorte, IN. The event will be a MILSIM known as Operation Charlie Foxtrot (This is currently the working title). The story so far is that in the near future the Colombian guerilla group known as FARC has taken up arms once again and the US has sent troops to help the Colombian government fight off this reestablish threat. The game will hopefully be on Aug. 29, 2020. Further details including price, what to wear and the schedule are on the way.
  8. So I'm reintroducing myself my username on here was The Punisher, but has been changed to GeneralCombs due to conflict with me being born again Christian and the punisher being an idol I have been playing airsoft since I was around 17 just backyard every once in awhile. Then had my first game at Joker's circus which was fun. Except the fogging of the goggles. I was playing off and on. Then I stopped for 3 years and started back up and have been playing at spec ops its been great fun and meet some good people in this sport ready to continue and have fun. I hope I'm here to stay. The Punisher is dead but GeneralCombs has been born not really but its been my youtube and gamer tag name so yeah it only makes since. Hope to see y'all on the field for some pew Pew.

I noticed the lack of events so I'm trying to help out and give everyone another opportunity to pew pew. IMPACT Waiver: http://airsoftindiana.proboards.com/thread/72/release-form Feel free to use any props that are already out on the field for your games. As far as teams you guys can do green vs tan or just wear whatever you want and divide up on game day. Vehicles with 4WD should park inside the gate. Guns should be kept out of sight of the road and passing traffic. Please pick up after yourself, I don't want to find a bunch of trash on the field. The last one who leaves closes the gates.

    Motor Screech Problem

    Riveted gearbox?? Had an A&K years ago and the GB was able to be disassembled. Can you put photos of your issue fang?
  12. I'm sad that you're on the wrong team, but I'm glad for the opportunity to sling bbs at you!

    Motor Screech Problem

    If this is from 2020, I'm a little stupid forgive me, I'm having a similar issue with my M60. Stripped the gun but the gearbox is riveted so I can't find the exact issue. Anyone know who I can turn to for a professional evaluation on it? A buddy of mine told me it sounded like a stripped piston, but again I can't get the gearbox open. It's an A&K M60E4 from like... 2013 I think. It's always had issues. We stripped the piston on Sunday when I took to CSA for my friend to give it a look. It fired to my surprise then started screeching like my third grade teacher's 108 year old demon nails on the even older school chalkboard. Any help is appreciated. If this doesn't belong here, let me know.
  14. Not been active in a year so I don't know if this is allowed here, but some things have come up and I'm looking to sell my ticket to this event (PB10). Anyone still looking for tickets or know someone looking to buy? Just the ticket, didn't pay for anything else... It's a tan (US) team ticket.
  15. Annnd another one / gift I received but cannot use. Selling for $160 obo, cash only please and thank you! https://imgur.com/a/LcOf0kk
  16. As a preface, hello again everyone - sorry ya'll haven't seen me in forever! Selling this piece because I've been busy with life so no time for airsoft. Received as a gift but I don't really have the time to use it. Looking to sell for $200 obo, cash only please (with COVID, lord knows we need it). https://imgur.com/a/4N5EoOY

    Hi Radraleigh, Welcome. I don't suppose you could verify if all three of your guns fire .177 (4.5mm) BB or 6mm BB, could you? I had never heard of the Steel Storm before and when I looked it up, all I found was a .177 BB gun and you definitely don't want to shoot at someone with that.

    Now that restrictions on public gatherings are slowly being lifted events are starting to happen. I would imagine June and beyond will be rather busy for Airsoft due to everyone playing catch-up for the year. Check out our event section for more details on upcoming events. Welcome to the madhouse. ~Joker

    Hello from Fort Wayne!

    I’m the same way. I have only ever bought one pair of boots online without trying them on and it scared me to death. Turned out to be one of the best decisions I’d made in regards to footwear. I bought some 5.11 boots, a bit pricy but well worth it to me. Welcome to the madhouse. ~Joker
  20. Date: Sunday June 21st Time: 12:00 noon to roughly 4 PM Cost: FREE Location: Joker’s Circus Airsoft Field Bloomington IN (39.192064, -86.578140) Joker is offering up his knowledge and experience of over 20 years of hosting Airsoft events in this “course”. We will be discussing the basics of hosting Airsoft events and how to get started with planning, writing, and executing said events. Think of this as a very loose and very laid back classroom or lecture type setting with hands on learning and the ability to ask questions in a group discussion. Requirements: -No hosting experience needed -Willingness to listen and learn -I’d highly recommend bringing something to take notes with. Either the old school pen and paper or an electronic device of your choosing. -Bring your ideas and questions with you -Bring yourself a chair -Bring yourself some food/drinks -We will be outside at the Circus (unless this changes) so bug spray is a good idea If I can think of anything else I will be editing this and adding too it. I’m simply trying to give back to the Airsoft Indiana community and help potential future event hosts succeed in making sure Airsoft continues to move forward. *If I do not get enough serious interest in people attending this, it will be canceled. ~Joker

    Where does an RPK end?

    The specific sru kit I'm referencing is a laser unit based on the movie Elysium that bolts to the top of the barrel/ front site. The gun will still be the same length, but I've since changed my mind about the sru kit, as I don't think it'll fit correctly due to the barrel length. I do want to do something different with the stock, just not sure what will fit. https://www.sru-precision.com/product-page/sru-hma-kit-laser

    Any chance you can get images posted of the gearbox? Really hard to troubleshoot from such a brief description.

    Where does an RPK end?

    I think this is your limit. I would imagine that any game that will limit support weapons based on the above mentioned traits aren't gonna allow a support weapon in an SRU kit lol
  24. Updated the thread title to reflect this

    Where does an RPK end?

    I mean, I could get really stupid with it, but I want to be able to use it at more than just open play games lol.

    You faggots know that you don't actually have to comply with this shit, right?

  27. Comrade Holland

    Where does an RPK end?

    This is the smallest legitimate support weapon possible: As you can see, this has every major feature of a support weapon-- heavier barrel, integrated bipod, reinforced receiver, advanced rear sight w/ windage adjustment, heavy-duty handguards, and the ability to accept high-capacity magazines (IRL.) Anything less than this is low-effort bullshit and moreover just an AK mascarading as an RPK. Edit: I'm wondering if we can go shorter. Integrated front sight & gas block assembly would allow you to shorten the barrel, looks like you have at least an inch before the bipod interferes with a drum and/or 40rnder (you don't want to fuck with a bb-gun drum anyway)
