I don't agree with all your post, but it does make a lot of sens for a sertain style of play.

If I speak only for myself, here is how I do it.

Rifle: upgraded M24, 450fps, harris bipod and bushnell 3x10-40mm scope. Rifle is painted cadpat and most of the time, ghillied.

I use a KJW M9 with 3 mags as a backup. When my drag bag is reasy, I'll probably pack my P90tr too for movements and for when shit it the fan too close for safe sniping.

Gear: Cadpat BDU and most of the time, a ghillie suit
I use a old CF webbing that look like crap, but the busted old C7 magpouches hold 2 M24 mags each and the whole thing fit under my ghillie suit. In my webbing, I carry 3 mags (+1 in the rifle), radio, spare ammo, map, food. I also use a camel back for hydratation.

Now is my two style of play.

First, if my ghillie suit is not suitable for the field, or the game we play don't allow for long infiltration and require rapide and consecutives movements, I'll play in just my capdat and webbing and ditch the ghillie. Then, I'll stick with a fireteam and provide long range shots, observation and flank protection....

Second, if the field match my ghillie and the game allow for long infiltration, I'll use my ghillie and go alone or with someone dedicated enough not to shoot everything he see and stay hidded. Than I'll procede the an erea usefull for the mission and set up an observation point. Depending on the mission, I'll go kills commanders, provide trail or zone interdiction or just harras the other team(s).

I find both my style of play to be rewarding in a sens that both are usefull and provide the kind of action I like. Playing with the fireteam give me a lot of target to shoot at and my killboard is crowded at the end of the game. When I play alone, I may get less than 10 kills, but each of them is like a work of art hehe.

My minimum engagement distance is about 100fts and my max is.... well, I got a confirmed kill a about 300-350 fts if not more.
I mainely use .30g or .36g depending on the field. .36g for open field, .30 for wooded field with less wind. I like both weight and they work almost the same, except for the .36g that give a nicer ballistic curve and is easyer to predict the bullet impact.

We'll I'm just about to receive my CA M24 (which is sitting at Specarms waiting for the rest of the order, Damn you Customs).

My question is, I know that the screws need to have lock-tite put on them but which ones need it? Is it just the two on the receiver and the two on the trigger unit, or is it every single screw on the rifle? Also what strength of lock-tite is enough? I have Permatex Medium Strength Blue, would this be too strong?

Thanks guys

The permacrap blue stuff will do OK. Not as good as real locktite but then the potmetal of airsoft guns can't realy handle the removal of screws locked with the good stuff either.... It will serve your needs. As for witch screws I can't realy help you but I figure it would be the two screws that hold teh receiver to the stock.. just like the aps i have sitting down in the shop with stripped screws...

Only the screws on the trigger assembly, and I mean ALL the screws on the trigger assembly. Remove one, put thread locker on it, put it back in and snug it, Move onto another screw, do the same. Continue til you have all of them done. Thread locker on external (main) screws.............. them coming loose isn't much of a problem, it's the screws stripping out the threads set in the pot metal that are the main problem.

True. A good amount of loctite in there helps a lot as well. Clean the threads best you can, apply a fair bit, snug it in well, then leave it alone for overnight or a day or two. I did that and it hasn't budged in a few months.

Here's a tip for you: Buy the stock pouch/shellholder/cheek pad and put it on your M24. I have one on mine, looks badass, but I keep an extra mag in there and two long allen keys.............. one to adjust the hop up in the field, the other to snug down the screw that attaches the endcap to the cylinder. Maybe toss a magnet in there as well to hold your keys together so they won't fall out when you pull your mag out.

Awesome, thanks guys.

Stalker, when you say all the trigger unit screws do you just mean the two that hold it to the receiver (seen in diagram) or is there more that isn't shown.

On my previous M24, the screws holding the receiver to the main body AND the trigger unit where locktited. (retaped also)

On my newer M24, the bolt "but" screw nearly came off in the last game. I had to stop used the rifle. So this one will get locktited after I ensure there is no damage done to the bolt other than the loose screw.

Diagram doesn't show anything. On the trigger assembly, there are maybe 6-7 screws on it. Do all of them except the one that has a locknut on the right side.

As for the safety screw, just remove the safety lever and the pin that links it up to the trigger. 1/ The safety isn't very good to begin with, and will eventually break anyways; and 2/ The trigger and safety is poorly designed as it is, and makes the trigger feel grinding and very heavy when you install a higher power spring. Even felt that way on mine because the safety pin going in behind the trigger was still in place. Huge improvement after I pulled it out.

All this 'keep the tricks secret' stuff is all a load of crap, I see how you don't want to have to put in alot of extra effort, restating points and tips to every single noob who comes in, hey, me neither, but how do you think we are going to become good sharpshooters if we don't get valuable first hand information from the veterans of this role.

By reading Sniper books? maybe, by googling, perhaps, but what is this new board going to be about, aiding new snipers and discussing tactics and such, or this group of shady snipers who keep to themselves when requested advice, and end up being like some high-school clique.


I just hope that when someone asks a question about (almost) anything, that they will be given some good suggestions (not saying you don't give anough good ones now) and advice, and have some of the better players 'reveal' some of their leet tricks of the trade.

Happy Hunting

The issue wasn't with revealing info to other snipers. It was to try to keep it between snipers. Everyone has access to these threads.
