This photo is from a few months back, and is missing a few guns that I aquired after taking the photo. top>bottom, L>R: TM VSR10, CA G3SG1, TM desert eagle, tm springer p228, tm mp5a4, ca m14, tm mp5k, cyma G18c, tanaka m700 aics, tm ak47, tm p226, tm m3 super 90, utg m324s. The other two pistols are not airsoft guns.


Added a few more guns, still missing some. top>bottom, L>R:
UTG M324S, CA G3SG1, tanaka M700 AICS, TM VSR10, CA M14, TM AUG, TM AK47, TM P226, CA G36K, TM MP5A4. TM MP5K, springer TM P228, TM M3 super 90, TM Desert Eagle, Cyma G18C. Other glock and 92F are not airsoft. Missing a Maruzen/G&P M870 and TM M733.


Tanaka M700 AICS, TM P226 w/ guarder FMK, folding knife is a Spyderco Manix, fixed blade is a Sog Seal Pup.




This would be me with my ultra-long range shooting gear.

For reference, I am a professional photographer, that is one of my cameras, a Canon 1D Mark II N, attached to a Sigma 300-800mm f/5.6, on a Gitzo 3540L/Bogen 3421 head. For reference, that is a 29" long camera/lens setup.

Next three:
stock Tanaka M700 AICS, CA G3SG1 upgraded to 400/.25s (didn't do the work myself, I'd have to look up the list of parts upgraded, but it's a long list), TM VSR10 (currently with M170, laylax zero trigger, orange piston, reenforced cylinder head, firefly hard bucking, though in the photo, with an m150 and stock bucking)






I needed to add my smileybones to the inside of hte scope covers....


Only photo I know of of me out with a sniper rifle on the field. My G36K was running at a much lower velocity than it should have been during chrono, so I decided to use it only for the night portion of the game. I substituted the VSR10 and the Maruzen M870 with G&P metal kit, slinging the rifle and using the 870 as the primary. However, I was assigned to this rock on a hill to keep an eye out for enemies. Part of this game involved roleplayers, in this case, the person who took the photo was a member of the press reporting on the battle, here reporting that we held the area. Not quite the best photo of me, but until the rest of the photos from that day are posted, only one of me in 'action' - even if I am just talking to the commanding officer....

Some sidearms I carry when out with a sniper rifle...


I got two pistols in need of repair a few weeks ago for a total of $65 shipped. I fixed both that night, with a total cost of $0.00 (
not bad, having never opened up a 1911(-like) pistol before). KSC 1911 and WE Hi Capa. Obviously, the 1911 had a very thick layer of paint on it, which was oversprayed and made it at least an inch back on the slide. That would not do, needed to go....

Sadly, my normal methods did not work, so I went with scraping and sanding... It needed to be repainted...and while the brown grips were fine and all that, I wanted a pistol that is more...my own....


Enter Birdseye Maple...


Photos do not do these grips justice.


TM P226 with guarder FMK and guarder threaded barrel, with a silencer attached, and showing off my custom glow in the dark sights. Photo was taken at 6AM, with only moonlight, using a fast camera lens (35mm f/1.4L @ f/2, held the camera in my left hand....trust me, hard to get any kind of shot when you gotta use your right hand to hold something while trying to use a right-handed camera....)


My favorite pistol, a TM P226 with guarder FMK, guarder outer barrel, and a few other internals upgraded for GG. Will be adding RS grips shortly.

and...for all the counterstrike pistol snipers out there ::) ;) , made this a while back....

Despite what you may think of the RS Desert Eagle, the TM Desert Eagle hardkick is a FUN gun to shoot, shoots far (as in mildly upgraded AEG range, if without all that much accuracy), kicks hard, and it is certainly intimidating with the sound made while shooting. For times when being quiet no longer matters, this gun is an ideal sidearm when I don't wanna bring out an mp5k (and yes, it fits in one of my holsters).

Thank you :). I don't think it's heavy at all, even with the extra crap I added I doubt it's more than a couple pounds, really. And those are fake leaves. I need to break it in still....

And I'll get some photos of it in action at some point soon....I'd rather not freak out the new neighbors too much by walking outta the house with this thing on.... I have a lightweight loadout to go with this - more or less a MOLLE belt, suspenders, and a few pouches and a holster so I can carry a radio, spare rifle mags, the sidearm, and food/maps/etc, water will be in a camelback. Waiting to get a few of those items in anyway....

uufffff, I thought I was away with my fever airsofter,but this is awesome. You relly like this hobby
I have an answer for you,wich is your best accurated and long range sniper replica?
For this one,can you explain internals
I own a maruzen type upgraded PDI/PSS2 and I m impresed with range, I have to adjust more to get more accuracy,I refer about targets around 90m.

The VSR10 would be my most accurate gun, as it is a spring powered sniper rifle, and has been upgraded for getting the best accuracy I can get for a long range rifle. While the M700 AICS is not bad, it does need upgrades to be more accurate and consistant, and even then, it is still a gas gun.

My vsr10 currently has mostly Laylax internals, with a laylax zero trigger, laylax 430mm 6.03 tightbore, M170 spring, firefly hard hopup bucking, teflon tape for all seals, laylax cylinder head, laylax orange piston, and I believe a laylax spring guide. Without the tightbore, it chronoed on a 55-60

Almost got as much shit as I do ;)

sorry for the late post, havn't been around a lot lately.
There'd be more, but I spred the love between airsoft, Spyderco knives, photography gear, and my moneypit of a car....

And I'm not even close to done just yet ;) There are just too many fun guns out there that I don't yet own! Thanks for the comment :)

A random assortment of sidearms to use with my sniper rifles. I just got the Y&P mk23 in today, it needs to be painted badly.... I also really want to get a real silencer for it instead of using the barrel extension...

WOW! You know Im a big photography fan, and of course airsfot. Man you have got quite the collection there. Great shots as well.

Do you usually just keep your photos stock or do you mess around with them at all? i.e photoshop, light room etc etc

Thanks

I shoot everything in RAW now, so everything is done in photoshop cs2...I used to shoot only jpg, but the ability to correct color balance or regain about a stop of exposure without much increase in noise is great....

thanks

I can say with 100% certainty that the mag will not work in a UTG L96. The "L96" I own is a Tanaka M700 AICS, a gas-powered rifle. It's a 27 or 29 round magazine, for that matter.

New pics of the VSR10, with a 'suppressor' and fake magazine. I'll have to get some sort of wrap for the suppressor since I'd prefer to not paint that - it gets used with other guns that aren't painted...
