Im considering building a dmr. Have a upgraded vsr, but it Dosent really fit my playstyle, i like doing a few games as a ”sniper”, but then i get bored and just runs pistol rest of the day.. active and agressive is more me.

at the field i want to start playing at again, i Will get into alot of short distance engagements, but i Will miss out on the long distance engagements, so i would like a Long range gun, to compliment my pistol. Alot of transitions between dmr and pistol, and alot of movement with rifle hanging from a sling, so a compact dmr would be nice. love the look and the size of an srs, but i dont need an extra basr.



field rules for dmr.
2.85 joule on `20’s, Max allowed bb weight 0.36g. 20 meter Med. Semi only(no more than 2 bb’s airborne at a time).

my build Will be:
hpa engine of some sort
good budget
“compact“ platform where the real steal counterpart has been made in 7.62 caliber version

have been looking at
svu cyma/g&g
never tried a bullpup, so dont Know how it feels shooting and transition to and from.

scar h, longer than i would prefer but i Will go with it if a svu Or other bullpup isnt a good idea for a hpa build.

other 7.62 platforms that isnt Seen alot on a airsoft field that you could suggest?

dont really want a hk 417, i see alot of those on most fields.


best regards

Honestly I'd just get an SR25 and swap out the barrel and handguard for an SBR one. 7.62 platform with familiar parts, easy to to upgrade, and definitely cool if you make it right.

There's no benefit to large caliber in airsoft. Unless you're going for a specific look or otherwise have some requirement to meet, just go with the smallest, lightest platform. I personally don't exactly find the SVU or most typical bullpup layouts to be particularly easy to wield. They might be compact and ergonomic but the layout and weight distribution just makes it weird.

I recommend a CYMA Platinum SR25/AR-10/AR308 in whatever length and handguard style you like, and run it as an AEG until it breaks.

When it breaks, go for
Polarstar Fusion Engine, Polarstar F2, Mancraft something or other
Grizzly 5.98 barrel
SS-nub (tutorial in bio)
Possibly REVO kit
And a suppressor of sorts

My DMR is just a CYMA Platinum M4 with the Polarstar F2, but I recently got the Polarstar Universal Gas Stock/UGS and I made some mini air tanks, so I'm now tankless with the shots of a 13/3000, but without needing a stupid optics riser.
The whole thing is 5 pounds 10.2 ounces as you see it, completely ready to smoke some SSG10 owners.

Ya, I milled the forward assist off, but I couldn't bring myself to paint the shitty looking metal so I got a new upper as part of a payment.
Looks way cooler and doesn't add much weight, but at some point I'll build a way cooler MTW when I get around to it.

Let me just say that my friend has a scar with an f2, and I despise how the scar airsoft platform goes together. Call me a dum dum because I was new to the platform. But the way the gun is designed is trash. I hate the upper, barrel, hop. Everything. We are going to sell it because he ended up buying a new gun.

Thanks for all the answers.
i aware that i dont need a Long gun to make it shoot Well on Long distances, but to me it looks wrong with a magnified rifle scope on a short Assault rifle platform.
in my country it isnt a dmr unless it has a magnified rifle scope.

thats why i was looking at bullpups, they Can look right with a scope and still be extremely compact. but dosent help that much it wielding it isnt easy.

furthermore a field that i May start visiting currently talking about adding an Extra rule, only rifles that has been made real steel as caliber 7.62/308 or larger Can be 2.8joule Dmr’s, 5.56/9mm and so on, would only be allowed at 2.2 joule.

i have been looking at wolverine mtw, it looks awesome. Light weight and good reviews.
i suppose it appeals to me as the platform it’s prebuilt and designed for hpa.
proprietary parts and not being able to move engine to other aeg platform kind of sucks Though.

okay so a scar isnt a good baseplatform. Then thats out.

rifle and a an airstock, thats pretty Nice combo you Got there silicone…

that kind of leaves me with a 308, g&g or other brand.

thanks for advice and suggestions guys, it’s much appriciated.

I have an svu. If you have large hands you will regret your life if you get it. The grip is the biggest complaint I have with it as its uncomfortable. Ill be putting a tutorial up about what I did. Though it is a bit extreme.

Ergonomics of it are not bad. Though if you are a lefty it will be if you use a proper PSO scope. I would also put a pad on the shoulder piece, helps to grip your shoulder and will be a little more comfortable.

hmm i need to find a ”local” shop that let me get a feel for the svu, the compactness makes it very appealing to me if the drawbacks Arent to big.

erhmm, Think my hands are medium Size, but ill look forward to the tutorial.
no pso scope and not a lefty, but i Will transition to shooting from left shoulder when needed.
I have a good quality 4-6x50 scope that isnt being used, so that is going on what ever dmr platform i go For.

In your oppinion, is there any drawbacks on wielding the svu Compares to a non bullpop large caliber gun? Or is it just a question of getting use to it?

how is the upgrade possibilities on it? doing a bit of fitment to get parts to work Well is okay, but drop in parts isnt a bad Thing:).

shoulder padding is notes, Any mods, internal And external that you would suggest if i go for the svu.

Yeah, I suppose you're right, but the 39 has far less range than 5.56, so that wouldn't actually be realistic.
Imo if it's a rifle caliber at whatever power it could be a sniper or DMR, as people are using 112gr bullets with insane chamber pressure and they're stretching .223/5.56 out beyond 1000 yards and hitting body targets.
Not that that's common, but modern ish tech is making the caliber thing a bit weird.

Still, a Falkor Petra in .300 WSM or another crazy awesome DMR beyond .308 would be seriously awesome if it were brought to airsoft.

Yes acording to the rules that are suggested, it has to be an 7.62, lenght doesnt really matter. well everything devellops, why shoudnt ammo.
but none the less, if i have to use a 7.62 platform i would prefer it’s one that at some point has been used as a dmr/marksman/sniper rifle. efficiency is important, but a bit of realism is cool.

What precisely does 7.62 mean in this case?
Does it have to be a Nato 7.62*51, or can it also be a 7.62*54r like in the SVD/SVU? Because there are a bunch of 7.62 calibres which are not full power rifle cartridge- 7.62*39 and so on.
This seems like a stupid rule to me.
Since the VSS is traditionally used in the sniper role, perhaps you could ask your site whether you could use it.
