        This might be a shocker to you but having cord all over your gun causes it to snag on leaves and sticks, the only 2 places on the gun that are covered by something... like your hands...are the grips

      they do this a lot because they're dumb irl and like to over accessorize everything

      those strings don't do anything, except for the one that blocks the outside of the trigger lol

    around the optic frame to hold it against the rifle so it doesn't fall off completely if the rails fail for some reason
    everywhere else for GRIPZONE (actually very shitty feeling)

        There is a video of an ukrainian guy running out of his little wooden trench bunker under fire, hitting his rifle against the doorframe and the optic falling off. I think it was a BREN.

        You clearly have never had the joy of watching a squad have to go back and comb a field for an ACOG that Private Dumbfrick didn't tighten down far enough. It's not to hold zero or even keep the optic in the fight, it's so that you have an additional failure point before losing something that is probably as expensive as the rifle it's mounted to if not more.

    The strings on the grips are to make it grippier so you don't drop your gun when you have sweaty palms. The string around the middle is to hold the shitty chink optic on. The strap around the butt is because the rear sling post broke off.

      Do Black folk really buy chink optics. I'd rather use Iron sights made from cardboard over chinese optics.

        Look at the picture. The frame is made of styrofoam. You really think the owner of a styrofoam gun would buy a real optic?

      it's a render clearly depicting an elcan, bad troll attempt 0/8 b8, extra single bonus point for making me reply.

      The one attached to the optic is a dummy cord, keeps the optic with the gun if the mount were to break for whatever reason.
      The others are useless and are for design purposes.

      having used the Elcan on a c7 in the CAF, the mounts do suck ass.

        So the straps on the butt stock are makeshift mounting points? Do eclan users usually do that strap thing depicted in the 3d render

            they aren't mounting points. Again, they're there if the optic falls off because the C7 mount (where it attaches to the top picatiny rail of the gun) are really weak.

            not that anon but he did say on the buttstock, and i think the artist who made the render in the OP might have been trying to emulate one of those AUG side pouches in pic related. Idk though, the OP render is still a little weird looking but i'll let it pass.

          the served are some of the dumbest people on the planet with firearms, because it's part of their job to use them and they still don't have a clue, and this goes all the way up to units like delta, you have no idea

      holy shit if an optic clamped to pic rail snaps off, then
      1. That optic is garbo
      or
      2. You just got blown up and worrying about where the optic is would be the least of your worries

        You say that, but shit happens in the field. I've seen it twice, once when an ACOG came off it's base, and another where a PEQ-16's screw walked out. It shouldn't happen, but usually this is a rare end user or possibly armorer issue. Its better to keep it tied down instead of losing it in the brush and having a company of guys scouring the woods for it for hours.

          What's really funny is an E5 yelling at everyone about tying down their halo during JRTC then proceeding to lose it and make everyone else look for it.

            Love to see it. One time one of my platoon's squad leaders who had the reputation of being a bit of a hardass left a set of thermals in his ruck which was tied down to the baggage rail of an AAVP7A1. When we got to where we were going, his pack was completely missing because the carabiner her used failed. We had been riding in those tracks for hours that day. Somehow we managed to find his pack dozens of miles away in the open desert, thank God. He was mortified. We were all pretty pissed off lol

    Anon that's just a render, not a real gun.
    The only thing wrapped around my main rifle is the pressure pad for my surefire. Surefire is mounted on the right hand side, wrapped over an unused section of picatinny, with the pressure pad on the left hand side

    The worst offender for this shit is the Colt Commando in the first Black Ops, the sling is stuffed UNDER the bolt release.

        yes. It's artists trying to make guns look cool to their teenage audience, but they don't know anything about guns really so they copy stuff they see in pictures but they get the details wrong because they are just going by what they think looks neat rather than understanding what the various things are for and why.

    People don't do that. They might dummy cord optics and lasers to the weapon just in case you decide that going down a steep draw is a cool thing to do and it turns out to not be so cool. Trust me on this.

    on the grips its the poor man's stippling
    on the sight its to keep to attahed to the gun if the mount breaks so you don't have to explain to your SGT that you lost a optic worth more then the gun you are holding
    the tristrap on the back is some weird single point sling point setup like often seen on P90s

    Bungee cord/paracord/sliced-up sling/whatever the frick wrapped around the strap can be used to ensure consistent cheek weld and therefore consistent sight picture.

    Paracord around the Elcan is so if it falls off its still tethered to the rifle. Kind of the same reason you see people with bungies on their NVGs. Rest is just artists not knowing wtd they are doing and just thought it looked cool.

    Green shit by the stock is probably for a sling, the cord going around the optic is to keep it on the gun if the mounting system shits the bed, the cord in front of the trigger is for a light, and the cord around the grip and foregrip is useful if the rifle is ever used by someone with the grip strength of a 90 year old with parkinsons.
