1tonne - I know you dislike SRS. It is your point of vision. I would like to disagree with you with the opinion about mag size. Recently I got my 16" SRS and the mags are not so big for me. Mag change routine was a bit strange but after some time I got used to it. I will carry 4 mags - no problem at all. Using SA pouches solved this problem.When I tried the SRS, I thought that it was an awesome gun and I would purchase one but the Mag was ridiculously big. That big that I would never purchase one until the can make the mag a high capper or make it smaller so that it can be taken out easy and carried easy. Mag changes will be a real problem during game. Not to mention that the mags are that big that you can only carry 1 spare mag. (I like to have a lot of mags for times when I am up a tree engaging a large team)
If you think about it ... just bringing a dual pistol mag pouch with a couple speedloader full of extra ammo put you in a position where you'll really never run out. The M40a5 mags hold enough gas for a few refills too so it's not the end of the world. ...but still the VSR build definitely has ammo capacity as a plus.>10rd Tanaka magazines
I know that life 😛 but hey if you play smaller games, you just look at the magazine and say "I'll get this many kills."! Definitely makes you play a different kind of game...
I've had my SSG about a month and love it! My Echo1 PSR is gathering dust somewhere in the garage.So I have the choice of the novi ssg or the silver back srs I already have a vsr that's fully upgraded but I want A back up one that I don't need to touch internally which is the better and why
NiceSRS. You'll need to upgrade the spring, but that's really all you HAVE to do.
SSG is just... I mean it's basically the same as your VSR in aesthetics. While you won't have to upgrade it, I've shot and held the SRS and it's just a nice rifle.
The only downsides I can think of on the SRS are the magazine size and capacity. You can make those things quieter than any other rifle I've heard though, and I run a WASP and all the foam mods possible on my VSR. Like Mk23 quiet. It's insane.
I've been debating selling my old Maruzen L96 to fund an SRS build recently...
