    Default M4 pararescue jumpers

    Hi everyone!!

    I'm making an airsoft M4 as used by the PJ's, but I' d like to know if any of you have a complete kitlist with the devices they are used to use on their M4's.

    Do you know if they use 10.5" barrels or just the standard barrel?? I think I 've seen one with short barrel, but I couldn't find it again.

    That's what I actually have:




    Thanks a lot!!!

    Try looking in the airsoft section, not the gear section...

    I know they use the shoulder thing that goes up. Looks like you have the proper assault clip and sniper scope. Is the rubber band to make it a machine gun?

    There is no such thing as "Pararescue Jumper". PJ does not stand for anything. It's either Pararescueman or Pararescue Specialist. It is a common mistake heard all the time.

    "M4 PARARESCUE JUMPER!" Looks like a Standard Issue M4 carbine to me.

    Blue electrical tape is a must. Has to be Air Force Blue only.

    I'd heard that before, but never heard where the "J" comes from.

    Heres' an idea...go to the photos section, look at the pararescue pictures, and copy. No offense, but that should have taken you all of 10 seconds to think of.
