Just because it's a machine gun, doesn't mean it's not deadly accurate at long range

one of my teammates was running an m14 as a sniper platform and it was pretty scary. His accurracy was pretty mean, and he had created a shell for the body of the gun, so that when he pulled the trigger you couldnt even hear the mechbox turning over, if u were really close all you could hear was a very quiet "click" from the trigger itself.

True it doesnt have the satisfaction of slamming the bolt closed, but m14s are reliable and there are tons of parts out there for them. And if some asshat doesnt call his hits (as seen far too frequently, they just look around wonder where the fire came from then keep moving) with using an m14 u can pop another shot into him just to make sure he gets the message, before he moves out of your line of fire.

By any chance do you know how to silence the mechbox or if there's a DIY guide out there?

dont think thats possible, its like trying to silence a car engine, dont think that technology is out yet.

and for a suggestion for a good sniper, id go with the TM VSR 10 or if you are on a budget the JG BAR 10 which is the exact replica of it, even though people bitch about how bad clones are, JG clones are amazing, i own one myself had a VSR 10 as well, sold it just cuz i can put all the upgrades i did in it into my bar 10 and it works exactly the same and might as well sell the one "worth" more so yer. other than that if you have a bit more money i would suggest the maruzen APS-2 LRV - its one of the most accurate sniper rifles in town

im not lying he wrapped the whole damn thing in quarter inch foam so it muffled all the sound, then painted it and wrapped it in its own little ghille suit.

he didnt do anything to the mechbox itself, just to the shell to completely contain all the sound

The technology has been around for years, it's just very rare to see someone apply it to an AEG lol
Air brakes work great, it requires alot of fine tuning to get it to work in full auto, but it should really only be used in semi auto. TM VSR-10 G-spec's have air brakes, that's why they're so quiet left stock.
Helical gears greatly reduce noise unless you have a CA or other slightly off clone mechbox. CA has theirs gears ever so slightly further apart than TM so the gears are usually pretty noisy.
Then there's sorbo pads, angel silent head sets, silent piston heads used in combination with sorbo pads on silent cylinder heads.

But the best thing you can do is have the maximum barrel length for your cylinder type and have a silencer. My VSR10 has no air brake, and the barrel extends to 1" short of the stock silencer, yet it's as quiet as a gopher fart because there's back pressure on the piston for it's entire stroke.
As long as you don't let the piston glide forward too soon, it won't make that loud smack on the cylinder head.
It's just WAY harder to do in an AEG because you have so many moving parts, making it more difficult to attain good compression.

That's where ALOT of torque and a 14" silencer comes in handy

On some occasions, however, he used a different weapon the .50-caliber M2 Browning Machine Gun, on which he mounted the Unertl scope, using a bracket of his own design. This weapon had a Traversing and Elevating (T& E) mount that enabled precise aiming: it was accurate to 2500 yards when fired one round at a time. At one point, he took careful aim at a courier carrying a load of AK-47's and ammunition on a bicycle. He had second thoughts when he saw a 12-year-old boy in his sights, but after considering the intended use of those weapons, he decided to disable the bicycle, hitting the bike frame. The boy tumbled over the handlebars, grabbed a gun, and immediately began firing back, so Hathcock returned fire, killing him


BWAAA?!?!?!

Dynamat http://www.dynamat.com/products_comp...lity_paks.html is the stuff you can pack around mechboxes to help damp out noise.

As for the .50 it was pretty easy to set it up to hit targets at long rage. You do the math and dial in the T&E knobs, pop off a single round a piece of scrap metal, pull off you ear defender and a couple seconds you'll hear a ting as the round hits down range. Great fun!

You don't think thats pretty accurate that he can hit a thin piece of medal like the handlebar's connector without causing injury to the person with a .50 cal machine gun... FROM 2500 YARDS AWAY?!

I have a feeling he missed, but the shockwave destroyed the bicycle.
Pretty sure the shockwave out at 2500 yards would be pretty significant, blow your hat off at the very least LOL

It's a right place/right time thing. Shots like this are easy if you shoot a lot ans shoot every day. He was in the right place to shoot a lot every day.
