Post by Pope » Thu Jul 17, 2014 3:09 pm

Post up your questions about standard Sniper Rifles (gas or spring) here.

All weapons must pass inspection and a chronograph test-fire.
  • Minimum Engagement Distance: 100 feet
    CHRONO (with .36 bbs): < 3.55 joules
    Sniper weapons must be either bolt action, or permanently fixed semi-automatic guns.
    Each Platoon will have 1 sniper team (Sniper & Spotter). determined by Platoon leadership.
    The Spotter follows all Rifleman rules.
    Sniper & Spotter may wear ghillie suits conforming to their Company’s basic uniform color.

Are .36 bbs the max allowable weight? Or is that simply the chrono weight and we can run higher weights during the operation (I normally run .43 in my Sig556 DMR)

Additionally, 3.55 J is approximately equivalent to 462 FPS with .36 bbs, correct?

.36 is the chrono weight. They've never limited BB weight before FAIK.

I just want to know what brand of BB will be used at chrono. I don't like surprises in the chrono line...

I will find out what .36 bb we will be using asap.

Toadvine is right - .36 is the chrono bb. There are no restrictions on the weight.

Thanks for the info Pope.

For those of us wishing to run as Snipers, where in our CoC should we request authorization? I was under the impression that it was our platoon leader, but I've heard mixed information.

I'm Militia, 3rd Platoon, 3rd Squad; so should I be getting authorization from Sgt Tanguma (3rd squad lead), the yet-to-be-named 3rd plat leader, or all the way up to CO Moore?

Snipers are a Platoon asset - your squad leader would not be in the chain of command for this assignment.

Send your Sniper requests to me via email: popetx@gmail.com

Include the following information:
Name
Name of Spotter (required)
Platoon
Squad
OLC experience (list the ops you have attended)
OLC Sniper experience (if applicable)
Photos of your weapon

I will then send to your Platoon Leader. In case of more than one entry for the same Platoon - Sniper spots will be awarded based on your OLC Veteran status. Do not submit if you do not have a spotter/partner. This is not something you should be picking up on the fly.
