The upper pictures are taken during the 1/3/09 game in the trench field, it was geezers vs pampers 24 21yr players verse 44 under 21 year old players who were to attack us while we defended the trench work field and assorted bunkers. I was carrying a M203/M16A4, a M60e4 and my M40A3 and a side arm, Thus armed for the attacking pampers team got trounced, partially because they lacked enough leadership to make a move on us. The camera died so my assistant only got field shots of the M60 and two other players so no field shots of the M40A3 with the ghillie rifle wrap or all the veg attached.
So far the M60 is performing very well for a STAR but does need some adjustments. Especially to the box magazine's drive motor.
The M40A3 (VSR-10) performed like I thought it should ( FINALLY
) Now that I have replaced just about every bit of it internally it is chronoing around 480fps with .20 gram BBs, and is very accurate at very long range. Easily out ranging the pampers team AEGs by 50-60 feet with .30 BBs. In celebration it got a new camo job. I am almost afraid to know how much money I have wrapped up in it. I think when I buy my Z trigger finally I'll order a fluted outer barrel and but all my old TM parts together thus assembling stock VSR from spares.
