I managed to get some more Spartan Laser footage recently now that I've finally added a GoPro to my kit. I had to add a rail onto the side of the Splaser, but it did a nice job. For the last sequence my job was to set an ambush and tie up as many of the opposing teams forces as I could for as long as I could. I'm not typically a trash-talker, but this game required it. Anyway, I really am certain that my sister could throw a grenade better than the guys I was up against though.
Once again, I had perfect performance from the beast with no jams, misfires or other issues. Very happy to have a home made gun match or beat the reliability of a commercial product.
so Redshirt... what is your armour made from/modded to fit airsoft standards? (not sharding and braking/denting)

My regular airsoft favs are a gas-blowback SCAR, highly modified for realism ICS M3 Greasegun, and a Tokyo Marui Thompson with real WWII wood, sights, magazines, and sling. I had quite a bit of airsoft custom building background before taking on the Spartan Laser. I've never made the same level of investment in my gear unfortunately. A marine build would change that.
I was asked by the local Gamestop to support the launch. I went and set up a display of my weapons and hung around in costume for the release. This was a rare appearance of the armor and the Spartan Laser together. The costume requires holding the Splaser far away from my chest. The 22 pound Splaser gets heavy fast. The sand coating on the exterior of the Mk VI damages paint on the Splaser. The aluminum receiver of the Splaser cuts into the cardboard of the armor. That is why you rarely see the Spartan Laser with me in costume. I'm working on a Marine setup that will actually let me carry my weapons with ease.
I also managed to attach the H3 frag grenade (carries spare airsoft BBs in the field) to the setup as well.
yeah the closes gamestop is a little small got stuck in the back corner with no room to move talk about getting crammed into a drop pod.
A glorious day of combat with the Spartan Laser! We ended up in an objective-based game with very long engagement distances that required movement across areas of low cover. Strong winds made sniping challenging, but proved ideal for the Splaser. All told, 22 kills and one death.

That is awesome!
