If you are thinking of the same one I am thinking of (http://www.armedpaintball.com/paintb...-metal-od.html), then those are weighted to match real grenades. I don't really want to be chucking a pound of metal at people.

Maybe they are up north, but I know they're not cool for Springfield (unless Blade has changed his mind since March), so I'm kind of out of luck on that one.

So, I just had a quick question about plate carriers. This sounds completely stupid and noobish...but still. This is the first plate carrier I've owned and I don't want to drop even more money into a new one if I break/tear this one by accident. I put some cardboard to act as plates to sturdy it up a bit more. My question is, if the cardboard fits (and it's not too tight), it won't end up ripping the actual stitching right?

Alright, let me see if I get what you're asking; Are you asking asking if putting cardboard in the plate pocket of your plate carrier will help prevent excess wear of the stitching? or are you asking if doing so would create excess wear?

Adding cardboard would help you stiffen it up and stop it from looking like yo mama's... never mind. Anyway, It shouldn't cause ripped stitching, it is designed to accept plates that weigh a lot more than cardboard. The stitching should hold up better than cardboard if push comes to shove. If you are really concerned, than invest in a set of SAPI training plates. These are made by a variety of companies that make these and can range from $30 to $100 dollars.

Ripped stitching and equipment that falls apart is usually an indication of poor quality rather than being too hard on your gear. Good gear is designed to be worn day in and day out in far worse conditions than an airsoft game.

TL;DR: it shouldn't and you get what you pay for.

Edit: heh, beat yah to it D_Man

So you're asking if a plate carrier, which is designed to carry 2 or more plates, weighing about 7-12 lbs each, plus a load of ammo and other gear, during intense physical activity, is going to fail and fall apart due to a couple sheets of cardboard?...

Even if its decent replica/airsoft gear, it should hold up fine.

ETA: Scooped by the dub.

I told you it was a stupid question. But thanks guys. Guess I got a little paranoid about breaking it.

So I've been looking for a set of goggles I can comfortably wear with a helmet, and I've been pointed in the direction of Bolle Defenders. I have been told from sources I don't consider very reliable that all Bolle goggles meet or exceed ANSI 87.1 requirements. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Ok, has anyone shattered a flashlight lens playing airsoft? I'm wondering if a glass lens would survive a bb impact, and if so, whether it would leave a mark.

I've had one of mine shattered during a night game but it was a rather large flashlight, hence a larger target, it would probably depend on the quality of the glass and the size of the lens.

rofbiaof hit it. It's going to depend on the strength of the glass or plastic that is protecting the bulb. Something cheaper like those little flashlights you find at Walmart or the Dollar Store will probably have the plastic break, and proceed to break the bulb inside in the plastic lens making the light completely broken and in need of a new bulb.

If you have a higher quality flashlight(Example: Surfire, 5.11, and many others) shoot it with airsoft all day long and you won't know anything happened.

So yes, your flashlight is at danger but I would argue to say your flashlight is less likely to get shot out than your optic if you use one.

Thanks, this is a Fenix light, so I wouldn't say it's quite on par with Streamlight or Surefire's higher-end models, but it's what I consider a 'nice' flashlight. I guess the risk is always there, but I'm trying to gauge what the danger/chance of it breaking is vs. $50, the price for the light.

There's always the option of attaching a protector of sorts, like the ones used to protect sights. Of course it might lower the lumens and be a bit bulkier but if you really want to make sure it stays safe you can try it, they usually only run from $15-20.

AK selector swtich replacement

I have been having trouble finding a definitive answer to a simple problem/ question (maybe searching in the wrong places?). My JG AK47 selector switch fell off a long time ago, and apparently I lost the small nut that the screw actually goes through (and what I believe actually turns the selector gear). I found a replacement part (http://www.airsoftmaster.com/echo1-a...or-switch-kit/) for $15, but I just wanted to ask AO if the Echo1 replacement part is compatible with the JG AK. Since the site doesn't offer returns, I want to make sure.

Also, I tried to be cheap and used a regular hex nut that I ground down to fit into the opening, but that did not work. The makeshift part fit, but did not turn the selector gear.

DrenneR, Evike states that the JG is ~380-460. The FPS limit tends to be set at 400 and no higher. I believe sometimes it can be 400-450FPS on semi only but I could be mistaken. As for the part about it having no rails, you could always buy an aftermarket rail and put it on. I know a guy that got the Black Ops Viper and the FPS on that gun was ~420 which is also pretty high, however I wouldn't know about the internals. Sorry I can't help more,

PIGI

If you're referring to Black Ops's (that increasingly popular Walmart brand) M4, than yes - it is fairly decent. My cousin owns one and I have taken it apart. The internals are a little different than most AEGs, but as far as durability goes it looks fairly good.

Thanks for the quick reply PIGI.

My brother just decided to buy his VIP BO m4, I'm still searching.
so far the gun is doing well, I think its firing too high but might slow down some.


hope to get out to fields asap, starting meeting people and playing/learning.


@JABLES:

yeah, its looking good so far.

A a new player, you should take your gun to chrono at an airsoft shop BEFORE you go to a game. If the gun is shooting high, they can help you downgrade to the velocity you need to play at. Waiting to chrono at the game, means if you are shooting high, you likely won't be able to play.

Or, maybe just buy your gun from the shop in the first place...
