I would seriously go back and hold it shouldered for a while, then imagine carrying about for an entire day, if you struggle with a G36 you WILL struggle with an m14 I just don't see how you could say it was lighter, Socom or not. but if yours mind set on an m14 go for it.

again i know that you guys know what your talking about but i think that one of the reasons i was strugling is that i had a base layer on, dpm (woodland) jacket, waterproof jacket, then a flipping huge coat and then a tactical vest...so um yeah a lot of weight on me, that was (call me a wuss) because i was scared that these guns would be quite powerful, so yeahh, but guys i hope you understand i am taking your advice, though i have been told that the M14 is a VERY good gun, and like 3+ people used it yesterday so um yh

-Zakaria

you sure it had the battery? M14's are notoriously not even in the slightest bit light.
may just have been the balance of the gun which you preferred with more weight in the sholder than on your arms with the G36


yes you are probably right dave and it did have the battery in, but it didnt have the mag in, though neither did my gun, my gun didnt have the battery in so umm

It's ares, it'll be ok...

As others have said I can't see the M14 working out better for you really. It might just be one of those things you have to get used to as you wouldn't normally use the muscles in your arm which are helping support it.

Were you using a sling so you didn't have to carry it around when you weren't actually using it?

Just stick with it, you've played 1 game right?

Airsoft might not even be for you, it might be better to carry on using your G36, unless your intent on getting rid of it then you should just rent for a couple of days imo. No point whatsoever in rushing things and throwing money down the drain.

Well if you aren't going to be playing till then I'd just stay set with what you've got and once you go again then start looking into what you're going to do.

this is true as i was there with zak as his g36c is front heavy and as with the m14 you can balance the weight out as the stock is quite good... also please look at my post on my g&g gr16 on the electric gun advice area
thanks, Albert

I few small RIS rails don't make the gun weight over 10 lbs

So from reading the topic i'm guessing your settled on the m14 then :)

just out of interest how much did you pay for that KWA g36c?

suprisingly i think their really good. the owner of red 1 airsoft came to test a cybergun m14 in our fields and it has very good range due to a slightly different hop up (or something like that i dont know the details). i dont know how relaible and long lasting it is but from what i've seen it seems pretty good.
however if your struggling with a g36 wait until you build up your strenght a bit. my freind baught an m14 and the gun itself was fine, but it was too big for him and he spent the day waddeling around like a penguin. :P imagine me using a minigun, by the time i got there everyone woud be dead

i paid 160 considering it was 2nd hand and a few parts fell off, also with the M14 i will have like 2 months to look at internal AND external upgrades for it...such as hop ups, springs, gearbox, red dots/scopes and silencers (barrel extentions) and more :)


as for Alex, well like i said i will have around 2 months to get used to the weight of it etc. i mean i will lift weights every now and then,do more sport, be like one of the guys at AWA...run across the open land and not be hit at all!! lol but seriously i will be bit more active and stuff over Xmas holidays

It's ares, it'll be ok...

It's a KWA.

I think it might be worth you trying out an MP5, they're usually nice and light if you find a plastic model.

As we've said before about all the painting etc, it is illegal, and if you do plan to do such a thing, then I suggest you don't talk about it on a public forum because we will let people know. It's in the interest of the sport that we don't have things like this happen.


hmmm...Mp5...what make should i get? what variant, also i am buying brand new, the ICS ones look ok...but i am still getting an M14, maybe Mp5 pdw as secondary? or the mp5k? on a 1 point??

thanks,

Man,

And here I am complaining that every gun I try feels light and plasticy!
For me they cant get heavy enough, nor metal enough :P

Maybe a PDW-style weapon is better for you, if you dont like heavy things.
An article from Ai came to mind, they were raving about the new KWA (Umarex) MP7:
