Well, I have lurked long enough. Time to show you fellas what I'm rolling with.

But first, the classic sniper pic...



I made my ghillie by hand, the good ol' fashion way. The coat is not mil-spec, just a military 'esque type jacket I had laying around. I reinforced the chest and the elbows with canvas. It is mostly broken in, but it could still use a lot of tender love and care (by that I mean abuse, mud, sun fading, etc.)

The ghillie front


The ghillie back


The rifle


This is my rifle, the Maruzen Type 96. I built the gun from the ground up. I got it stock from Redwolf just about two years ago. Now it isn't quite stock.

It has the following...
-Laylax Zero Trigger
-Laylax Teflon Cylinder
-Laylax Cylinder Head
-Laylax High-Power Piston
-Laylax Power Accuracy Cup
-Laylax Spring Guide
-Laylax 150 Spring
-PDI Hop-Up Chamber
-Prometheus Soft Bucking
-Prometheus 650mm Tightbore Barrel
-King Arms Suppressor
-King Arms 3.5-10X Replica M3 Scope
-Many sleepless nights

Thanks for taking a look. I am sure there are more pictures to come. Feel free to comment.

Everything is nice to me besides the barrel length IMO.
::)
I think I already hqve proven that a longer barrel is lessaccurate in several posts. Whetwr ormnot you beleive in the cushion or air or the bounce method. So dont get cheeky lol.

Haha, I know, just it's funny that you bring it up whenever possible. It's cool though, cause I agree with the barrel length thing.

But yeah, some ghillie close ups would be sweet!

Well I do try to illuminate the less aware.

I am looking into getting a shorter barrel. The gun doesn't have 'bad' accuracy with the long barrel, but it is just too damn long the way it is. I trust that the gun will be better in both mobility and accuracy with the stock length barrel.

You guys asked for close-ups of the ghillie so I will oblige.

This pic just shows a bit more detail of the coloring of it.


The hat is just the basic Boonie with a cut down brim.


I started with tied elastic bands, but I have moved to rubber bands. I am going to try the dental floss technique soon.


I sewed one of the breast pockets on the left forearm. It is upside down, but it is only partially sewn shut, so I am not too worried about anything falling out. I don't really keep anything too small in there anyways. You can also see the thumb strap that I put in to keep the sleeves from riding up while crawling around.


This is just the canvas elbow reinforcement. All of the seams are sewn with heavy duty thread, then glued over with E6000. So, I don't think anything will be falling apart too soon.

You might find the floss to be more "tedious"but I find it more affective than any band method. Having a spotter is useful for adding veg in game, but when out of game, you can veg your ghillie on your own. It's just easier to have a spotter, especially when time is of the essence.

Nice pics man, I believe I saw that rifle one on MIA. ;)
I think that the rifle you are thinking of is upstairs in my closet actually
. I was reading his parts list and thought it looked very familiar. I think we have very close builds with a few exceptions. I bought my gun used and pre-installed so I am still tinkering with it trying to get the hop up to work right. I will have to consider the shorter barrel length once I test it with a working hop up. This is my first upgraded rifle so my experience is limited....I would appreciate some feedback about the performance that you are experiencing with your rifle hunt. Here is my parts list by the way.

-Maruzen Type 96
-PDI 240 Spring
-Laylax Spring Guide
-Laylax High Pressure Piston
-Laylax Teflon Cylinder
-Laylax Zero Trigger
-Prometheus PSG-1 650mm 6.03 Tight Bore Barrel
-Pro-Arms 6.5inch Silencer / silencer attachment
-PDI Hop Up Chamber
-Laylax APS2 and L96 Power Accuracy Cup

Sorry for the lack of response. I haven't been on in awhile.

Ghilliegan- My rifle shoots around 465-470 with .2's, and I can usually hit a man-sized target at about 75-80 yards. There are the usual fliers, but it is mostly consistent. I am still experimenting with BB brands and buckings. So, I hope to improve shots.

I am thinking of getting the 170 spring (if you are going to spend $1000.00, take it to the limit, am I right?). Like I stated, I am also going to get the shorter barrel. Hopefully that will improve some things.

Don't get me wrong, the gun is amazing as it is. But I am a perfectionist.

You can never be perfect with a smoothbore barrel and round ammunition... Still nice though.
