I wish I could afford Barrett x.x Just watched daddy thumbs video on the newly adopted mrad
Message permalink: 709847292152250449
Had a bit of respect for them ever since they told California that they wouldn't sell to their police because technically they couldn't legally sell to criminals
Message permalink: 709847515050147850
Wish they made a wider variety of firearms.
Message permalink: 709847747150348320
They have a small and large frame ar, and a couple of bolt actions i think. Their mrad has interchangeable bolts and barrels though, so you can swap out what you want and re zero
Message permalink: 709847978638311506
I guess I'd rather see a handful of top tier guns than a bunch of mediocre ones with slight differences
Message permalink: 709848180258242570
I had difficulty finding their AR parts for a build.
Message permalink: 709848340598358099
I think they only sell pre built ar's but i could be wrong
Message permalink: 709848646467977289
Judging by their reputation with other guns, and the hefty pricetag on their di and piston ar's, it sounds like they're pretty high quality. I haven't read about them though
Message permalink: 709848878148485250
Hah apparently the r in rec7 stands for reliability. I just want one of their bolt guns though

If you don't mind getting a Destructive Device license. There's the Anzio Ironworks 20mm anti-material rifle. Makes .50BMG look small.
Message permalink: 709851194192953445
Well... decided to take a look at the Rec7 just because... It's 2500 for the standard black Cerkote Carbine...
Message permalink: 709851376481599538
And for some reason, the lightweight version is 2200... it's cheaper?
Message permalink: 709851454218960979
Don't know why, granted the rec7 is piston driven so it's more expensive than the rec7 di, which will be even lighter than those two
Message permalink: 709855247522201691
Ah okay they only have the piston and di versions. The di is lighter, but also less expensive because it's not a piston gun
Message permalink: 709855977960112235
Yeah, but Piston is supposed to be even more reliable, right?
Message permalink: 709857472307003423
Supposedly yeah. It keeps gunk out of the receiver but it builds up in the gas block instead. I could be wrong but I think a lot of them blow gunk out of the gas block so while it's a pain to clean, it still functions

Go figure, ive got extra money right now... Looking at helmets.. Any tips, or finger points in the right direction are appreciated.
Message permalink: 709866610638192701
Unless you're taking classes that require a ballistic helmet for whatever reason, your best bet is a good quality bump helmet like team wendy, if you need to mount nods. If you don't need to mount nods or protect your head from bumping into shit due to your environment, no helmet
Message permalink: 709872260231462943
What kind of helmet would you recommend for posing in front of the mirror?
Message permalink: 709873090645065889
Definitely either team wendy or crye, both look pretty cool

Their story is pretty cool too, a bit sad. Tldr the owner founded the company after his daughter died of traumatic brain injury from a skiing accident. He decided to make the best helmets possible after that.

What's up with the different finishes on BCGs? What do different ones like phosphate, parkerized, and NiB do?
Message permalink: 709878292236337153
It's differing amounts of finish toughness. Gimme a sec, it's a google search away
Message permalink: 709878792717598770
I ask because I'm looking for less copy paste knowledge and more practical experience with them
Message permalink: 709879395967303759
Phosphate is tough and cost efficient. But harder to clean and requires more lube. Black Nitride is basically better in every way but more expensive. Nickle Boron is the best, also more expensive, and also shiny
Message permalink: 709879407598239754
My personal favorite is Black Nitride, it's tough, doesn't require as much lube as Phosphate, and doesn't have the shine of the Nickle Boron, which can give your position away better.
Message permalink: 709879707046379582
There are more kinds out there too, but those are the most common.

@[LA] Zoomer Medi/k/ NiB doesn’t retain lubricant like phosphate does, your rifle will shed lube much faster

And the slick carrier won’t actually run any better so, it’s actually less reliable over time

I just use nitride because it seems to be durable and very common

Oh you forgot the best one. TiN bcg's force everyone to drop what they're doing and admire your flex even though it costs about the same

Nothing says flex like spending 2-3 times the price for parts because they're from a brand that literally no one but airsofters have heard of.
