So I've been working for quite some time on the making the Classic Army CA25 into an incredible Airsoft DMR machine who's performance will make your mother want to bake me a cake.  

I've got no idea whether the situation pictured below is going to work, but I do know that time will tell and when it does, I will gladly pass the message along to you, my anonymous readers. Even if the news is bad, I have no problem saying so. Otherwise, you might think that it actually worked, then go out and try it yourselves, only to find out after your time and money has been spent that it doesn't work and then you will hate me and then I will be sad and upset because I can't stand when people hate me.

So here's a sneak peak inside the inner barrel & hop-up assembly of the CA25 Airsoft DMR that I'm building for you and for me (but really, it's so that I can shoot you from farther than you can shoot me).

Listen, I've heard the argument and been called a sissy because I prefer long-range Airsoft rifles instead of grabbing a sub-400 fps assault rifle and getting up-close & personal with the OPFOR. Don't get me wrong, I've got a healthy portion of carbine rifles in my arsenal for just about any occasion, and just last weekend, I even put away the intimidation factor and ran a CA M15A4 Carbine at the Jericho Camp Pendleton MOUT facility for a while (which is actually located on the Marine Corps base itself, by the way).  But to be honest, you pro-assault gunners can look down your noses at me all you want, but while you're back at the respawn point killing time, I'll remain out in the field, sending more young thundercats to keep you company.

Alright, truth be told, I've actually been shot plenty of times by someone with an Airsoft rifle having less range than mine, however, DMRs are  better.  It's science.

Anyway, the point of this blog is to give you a little bit more of a glimpse of what the inside of the CA25 inner barrel & hop-up assembly look like after I've modified the CA25's hop-up bucking. 

If you're wondering how I got the bucking nub to look like that, I'll tell you: with a razor blade and a soldering iron.  Now, in hind sight, the soldering iron may have jeopardized the integrity of the rubber when I melted/molded it, losing some of its softness, but if I don't test new ideas, I won't know which ones stink and which ones are completely ridiculous and embarrassing that I even thought it up in the first place.   

I'll keep you posted on any and all developments on this very special project.

Airsoft.

So I started upgrading the Classic Army CA25 AEG that I got from PyramydAir.com.  This is by far, my favorite rifle of all rifles in the world of real steel, so I'm actually ashamed of myself that it's taken me this long to acquire one, when I've been playing for years and have spent an shameful amount of money on other guns and projects.  Long story short, I am going to a masterpiece in the form of a long-range, semi-automatic sniper system in honor of the CA25's real steel counterpart.

To start, decided to work on the accuracy stuff first, since accuracy is much more important than how hard/far the gun shoots.  What difference does it make if your gun shoots 540 FPS if you can't hit the proverbial broad side of a barn?  First thing I did was swap out the stock inner barrel and replace it with a custom, 6.01mm diameter, 534mm length EdGI tightbore barrel cut to my specs by Ben Noji of PolarStar Airsoft fame. I chose the 534mm length because of the larger-than-normal cylinder volume that the CA25 uses. I measured the length and radius (diameter divided by two) of the CA25 using Mitutoyo Digimatic calipers to the best of my limited abilities.  My goal is to optimize the length of the inner barrel, which affects the volume inside the barrel so that there is maximum energy transfer to the BB upon firing the AEG.  I'm no physicist or anything, but I have figured out who to talk to about things like this, and that's basically what the purpose of this procedure is for. 

So first, I had to take some measurements of the CA25's cylinder. 

CA25 Cylinder Height

I forgot to get a picture, but I also reduced the cylinder height shown above by the amount that the cylinder head is inserted into the cylinder.  I measured the cylinder head with the calipers as well.


CA25 Cylinder Diameter (which I divided by 2 to get the radius)

As stated in the super sweet title of the blog entry, my objective is to figure out what an optimal length for my inner barrel would be, based on a few pieces of given information and criteria.  I know I wanted a 6.01mm diameter barrel and the cylinder volume is set in stone, so that only left the height/length of the inner barrel TBD.  Through the use of my mad algebra skillz and the superb ability to solve for "X," I figured out based on the numbers I established and listed below, I was able to calculate that I needed somewhere around a 534mm-length inner barrel, which is actually slightly longer than the stock inner barrel that Classic Army put in the gun.  Here are the numbers:



Height (mm) Diameter (mm) Radius (mm) Pi Volume
Barrel Volume 534 6.01 3.005 3.14 15,141.18mm^3
Cylinder Volume 74.26 23.81 11.905 3.14 33,047.86mm^3
C to B Ratio--> 2.18






Cylinder Head Height 7.47 mm


Cylinder Height 81.73 mm


Net Height 74.26 mm


Cylinder Diameter 23.81 mm


Cylinder Radius       11.905 mm


Pi        3.14





So, long-story short, that's how I was able to calculate a relatively optimal length for my CA25 Airsoft DMR project. Next, I'll discuss what I'm experimenting with on the hop-up.

Review of the WE G39C?

I need some feedback on whether you readers out there would be interested in having me review the WE G39C here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog.  Post up in the comments section if you're interested.  If there's enough interest, I'll see about getting a hold of one and putting the review up here for all y'all's enjoyment.  Lemme know, fa sho.  Word.

So today/yesterday is/was Veterans Day (written 11/11/10, posted 11/12/10).  And for those of you that have trouble putting two and two together, you should A) slap yourself and B) know that today is a holiday meant to honor the all the men and women who have served in the United States military at some point in their lives.  Today is also known as Armistice Day in other parts of the world, and is celebrated on November 11th of each year to remember when, during World War I, the armistice was signed and effectively ended the war at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

I've wondered lately what exactly constitutes a "veteran" when it comes to the people that today's holiday pays tribute to.  So I looked it up.  And basically, there's a general consensus that a veteran typically refers to anyone, man or woman, who has served in the armed forces.  There is additional emphasis that a veteran especially refers to someone who has served in a combat theater during their active duty or has made a career of 20 years or more out of their military service.  My own personal view is at the most basic level, including anyone who has served in any branch of the United States Military, in or out of a combat zone.  Although there are some epic historical rivalries between the various branches, at the end of the day, our military personnel, regardless of which branch, are all on the same team (Team America *expletive* Yeah!), so whether you manage operating budgets in excess of $150 million for the USMC finance department out of Quantico, train and lead combat medics for the 1st Armored Division out of Fort Bliss, or recruit future soldiers in and around Clovis, CA, you're legit in my eyes.  Even though I'm taller than most people, including many of our nation's veterans, it is I that look up to them.

There is a somewhat of a common air of glamor that Airsofters tend to place on being a real world operator, serving on the front lines of combat and let's be honest: I can't blame them.
Look at the guy on the right ----> 
If he's not one hardcore mother-lover, then I don't know who is.  However, the reality is that war is so far from glamorous, the two aren't even in the same galaxy.  None of the people in my sphere of influence who have "been there, done that," thought it was fun, cool or otherwise good times to get shot at by insurgents using very large and very real bullets or seeing their fellow soldier's body get literally melted to the walls of a Bradley after they were hit by a roadside IED.  I'm not saying you should feel guilty for thinking this stuff is cool, but I do think it's important to have a reality check every once in awhile and take stock of all the rights and privileges you have as an American citizen.

If you disagree with the war or the way this country is run, please feel free to do so, but you'll need to thank a veteran for fighting to protect your right to feel that way.  Weird how that works.

So to all the veterans out there,

Thank You For Your Service

Call me a small-towner who doesn't get out much, but the new 5.11 Multicam (R) TDUs are pretty sexy. I mean, is it just me? (No)

Thanks to mastermind, Dan Costa, 5.11 has become a brand worn by governmental agencies, private security companies, etc. all over the world and for good reason. They make excellent gear that can stand up to harsh conditions, hence why they make the perfect choice for Airsoft loadou...listen. I'm going to be honest. I've been sitting here for waaaaaayy longer than I care to admit, trying to think of a super-cool way to say how awesome 5.11 is. The problem is that I've had a long day, and quite frankly, I really don't think you care how well the blog is written. I think you're more interested in seeing what the products look like.  So here they are, in all their glory:

I'll let you in on a little secret.  I already own a set and wear them not only whilst I put fools on blast at my local Airsoft venues, but I have also been known to wear just the shirt (sans pants of any kind on occasion), while I write blogs about Airsoft stuff.  The other night, I got home from work, changed out of my suit & tie, and subsequently into my 5.11 Rapid Assault Shirt & Multicam TDU Ripstop pants.  Then I proceeded to join my family at the dinner table for a nice meal.  I can tell you right now that EVERYONE at the table was green with envy of all my multicammery.  No one else at the table plays Airsoft or has any real interest in tactical apparel, but it did not matter.

The appeal of these TDUs from 5.11 know no boundaries.

The shirt is extremely comfortable to wear and just look at how well it blends in with my carpet!!!

The "poly-cotton" blend or whatever the body material is made from (55% cotton/37% polyester/8% spandex knit, as a matter of fact.  Bee-yi-yotch!) is very lightweight and breathable, which, of course, was the intention of the designers.  If you live in a climate similar to mine, you'll appreciate this feature when you factor in the weight and heat produced from wearing a load-bearing vest during game-play.

The sleeves are made from 5.11's famous TDU polyester "Ripstop" material, which I've already covered in past blog entries, so I won't mention how well it held up against some rusty old barbed wire that I tripped on one day while playing Airsoft and wearing a pair of 5.11 ripstop pants and how the pants only sustained a tiny rip about the size of three or four BBs while the flesh of my lower leg was ripped to shreds of all hell and I then had to get a Tetanus shot because of the whole ordeal.  So I guess the Ripstop material isn't perfect, because otherwise if it was, the fabric would be magical and have saved me the trouble of having to get a $140 Tetanus shot, which sucked something awful.  I know I just said that I wouldn't mention that particular incident, but I suppose that was somewhat inaccurate, considering I pretty much retold the whole story again in one long, run-on sentence.

One extra touch that was rather sweet of 5.11 to do for us, was to add pouches on the sleeves WITH velcro, suitable for sticking our favorite morale patches to, in an act of vanity and hope that wearing such patches will make us look "tight," "hip" and/or "cool" to other Airsoft players.  One time I put my cell phone in my sleeve pouch instead of in my right-front pocket, where it usually resides.  I definitely felt like I was getting good use of the pouches at that time.

While I do realize, there's at least one of you out there that is saying, "well, gosh gee golly whiz, what's so different about the 5.11 Rapid Assault Shirt that hasn't been done already by other companies who pretty much offer the same style of shirt?"  Well....I'll tell you.  Number one, when compared to what I would consider the benchmark for battle shirts, the Crye Precision Combat Shirt, you'll notice a substantial difference in the price tag.  5.11 offers their shirt and pants for around half the price of the Crye shirt, without having to sacrifice any sort of quality.  Keep in mind, that while we Airsoft ~"operators"~ (and I use that term very loosely) delight at the opportunity to sport this so-called "Gucci gear," it was designed for law enforcement and military applications, and if I know 5.11 like I do (and I do), they're not going stake their multi-million dollar reputation on a product that will put their customers in harms way.  So rest assured, that while one might think that just because the 5.11 shirt is substantially cheaper in price, does NOT mean that it suffers in quality. While I realize I've been focusing primarily on the Rapid Assault Multicam Shirt, lest we not forget about the 5.11 Multicam TDU Ripstop Pants that complete this winning outfit. All the same features that make the Ripstop TDUs so great (extremely durable), but this time in the ultra-effective and everso good-looking Multicam pattern.

Other features that this tactically hot outfit boasts include extra ripstop fabric for enhanced elbow protection.

That's breathability, right there, my friends.

Here's a shot of the back of the shirt, where you can see there's some more mesh up around the back of the neckline, plus, you can see a bit of the mesh areas on each side of the shirt. The brilliant minds over at 5.11 definitely put some thought into this one.

Let's switch gears now and share some of the spotlight with the 5.11 TDU Ripstop Pants, also in Multicam (don't mix and match your patterns, you will look like an idiot).

The pants have pretty decent size cargo pockets on each leg, and within those cargo pockets, 5.11 has added additional pockets to help compartmentalize the contents of your pockets, in an effort to assist you in finding what you're looking for in there a little bit quicker when you're in a rush. I like to use the small, inner pockets to keep my keys, wallet and/or other items that I don't want flopping around in the larger pocket while I'm trying to be tactical.

On each side of the inner construction of the pants, there are elastic bands that allow for a more comfortable fit in the event the standard waist sizes don't quite fit you just right (fatty).

Personally, I wear a belt, but that's because I have to buy their 2XL Long size to get the extra length I need for my long and hairy, yet powerful, beast-like legs. And no, I'm not just blowing hot smoke up into your dark, foul-smelling crevices, I'm 6'6", remember?

Extra fabric reinforcement on the front of the knees, along with the ability to use neoprene pad inserts for a little extra cushioning on your knees. Whether you're crouched on a knee behind some cover on the field, or just trying to work your way up the corporate ladder, this feature definitely comes in handy for reducing wear and tear while you're down on your knees.


Speaking of reinforcements, the "seat" has also been granted extra fabric as well.  Oddly enough, no innuendo comes to mind at the moment.  Perhaps I'll think of one later and edit it in.  Best thing to do is keep your browser open and just keep hitting the refresh button every ten minutes or so to see if I've updated this entry with something cool and not-so-subtle.

So.  What now?  Well, how's about we wrap this 5.11 Multicam party up for the time being.  Truth be told, I've got some serious stalking to do on Facebook.

I think it would be difficult to argue at this point that these items are anywhere near your ordinary, average, boring and/or run-of-the-mill tactical uniforms.  They were made with functionality and comfort in mind for the end-user and I can honestly say that they've done a fantastic job at achieving those goals with this new set of TDUs.  I know that there are many others out there who feel the same way because these things are selling out left and right.  PyramydAir.com still has some sets in stock still, so I would suggest snagging your set now.  My guy on the inside tells me that not just Pyramyd Air, but 5.11 Tactical is already backordered on the Rapid Assault Shirts until February 2011, so if you wear a Large or an Extra Large, you're in luck, because Pyramyd still has a few left.  Get some (literally).

Airsoft.

I would never suggest you Dremel your own teeth, you need those for chewing food, obviously.  However, if we were talking about piston teeth, then we have a different story.  I actually DO recommend removing at least one tooth for pretty much all types of setups, whether they are built for speed or for power.  Before you just go out to your Airsoft man cave and start filing away piston teeth, you need to know which teeth to remove or reduce.  You'll want to completely remove the 2nd tooth, which immediately follows the first tooth (weird), which is located on the end of the piston opposite the piston head.  You'll also want to basically file the 3rd tooth to about half it's original height (but probably not any more than that) as well.

The reason for doing this is to prevent the sector gear from prematurely engaging those teeth during a cycle.  Premature engagement is a problem for many guys out there and while embarrassing to have occur, IS a preventable situation.

Check out the photo below where I've taken the liberty of performing this mod to perfection. 

2nd & half of the 3rd CA25 AEG Piston Teeth Removed.





See, in the picture above, how the second teeth is completely removed, then the 2nd & 3rd teeth are reduced on a gradual basis?  You'll have to eye-ball how much you should remove within your own system, but this is the general idea.  Some setups may not require you to remove quite as much of the 2nd or 3rd tooth, so pay attention to what you're doing and think before you just start cutting things up.  This is yet another situation where my mantra of "Don't be an Airsoft idiot" applies.

The WE M14 GBB airsoft rifle is this heavy:

Ten pounds, 14.5 ounces...on a mothu-lovin' baby scale, my nizzle!!!  Cuz that's how the WE M14 GBB rifle rolls, straight up OG(BB).  <-----See what I did there?   

Ten pounds might now sound a lot to some of you interwebz Tuff guys, but let me tell you, don't fool yourselves.  You will notice how beastly this rifle is as soon as you pick it up.  Add a scope to this recoil monster and you've got yourself a real man's workout whilst you tote this puppy up and down and all around your favorite airsoft field(s). 

Airsoft.  

Consider the following scenario a very possible reality for some of you out there:

You in the middle of a game. You only have one Airsoft AEG with you. It's brand new and did not have the time or resources to properly remove the fuse prior to game day, so you play with the gun as is. However, early in the first game of the day, you blow the fuse in the gun and don't have a spare to replace it with. Sadly, you head back to your vehicle, thinking your day is done WAAAAY too early since your AEG is no longer operational and you don't have a backup. You head home, dejected, after having to spend all week in anticipation of game day, only to have it cut short within an hour of the first game beginning.

THIS IS TOTAL BUMMER and a good reason why I try to replace the wiring in my new AEG as soon as I get them. However, I realize that is not always possible for everyone, including me, and sometimes you just can't wait to take your new toy out to show off at the field. So, I have a temporary solution to use so that you can continue to play for the remainder of the day (assuming no other complications arise).  I will show you in a small series of pictures.  When you see it, you will say to yourself, "HOLY BBs!  It's so simple!!!"  

For this example, I used a Classic Army CA25, but will work with any AEG that uses this style of fuse assembly.

Yup. It's that easy. Temporary though. You really should either completely replace the wiring or at least cut the fuse connectors off and solder the two pieces of wires together. But we'll be talking about that later. For now, the pictures above should illustrate how to get by until you can make other arrangements. Any questions? Post up a comment.
