"i will be bringing my nice shiny new king arms aeg blowback svd, just fitted a tight bore barrel to it, shoots along way on .3's, dont, & will not have a scope on it, as, & this is a purlely personal thing, i dont get on with them on an airsoft gun, am better with both eyes open, like to see were the rounds go, etc. as i said, it's a personal thing, as i know alot of you get on ok with scopes. i personaly just dont think airsoft guns are accurate enough to waurent them, for the extra money, weight, etc."
Normally i totally agree but for 'filmsim' i always think that if a weapon would have always been scoped in the 80s (svd, m21 etc) it should be if you can for the game as it 'looks' better and makes you feel more in 'the film'.
But yeah normally total waste of time with airsoft ranges.
The PSO scope also has a fantastic built in range finder as well though so it's *genuinely* useful for spotting as you can tell someone 'enemy troops 400 metres from your position' and not just be guessing as the reticule has a 'ski ramp' in inclements... you line up the height of the taret person or man height object on the ramp and you know exactly how far away they are... with the built in IR detector it makes them *very* useful but it also contributes to real ones being *very* expensive. I got mine for a song but it's worth a lot more than the gun it's on.
see what i mean, handy eh?
