The new Surefire muzzle brake is almost spot on and will do! Your right about the ammo crates... you do spend more time trying to make sure you got your load out. Checkout GA Precision's M40A5 for a better look at the Surefire muzzle brake. Some good reference pictures of the Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 PM II scope too. GA Precision M40A5

The new camo is looking good too.

Thank you, thank´s for the reference too.

The problem with the muzzle break is that I can only CTR+C CTRL-V 3D models :-) so that it was copied from another mod. And I still need to find out the author, so that I can credit him.

Please, check if you see the proper scopes on these weapons...

Attention friends!

Just to make sure, if you have installed Dagger Weapons (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=25486), then you must see the following reticles:

M24 reticle


M24A2


Mk13


M40


If you do not see the above reticles on your weapons it is because you have not installed Dagger Scopes (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=19844)

Alright... been kinda quite over here.

The M40 reticle is different than the USMC mildot (oval) which was originally used with the M40A1/Unertl USMC 10X scope. Since the M40A3 (later model) and M40A5 went to the Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 PM II scope, I'm not sure if the USMC still use the oval mildot system. Schmidt & Bender's website shows 4 reticles to choose from with this scope.

Hey Mast,

I was just playing around with a Premier Heritage 5-15x because I´ve heard some guys were firing with it and I wanted to taste how it feels. More details here:
https://www.snipercentral.com/premier525.phtml

Scavenging on the net I´ve found the following scopes to have been used (I don´t know for how long) on M40´s, and I´ve chosen to assign them to the many available M40´s (including RH ones for A2). Since I´ve made many reticles, I had to choose to which rifle would receive each reticle. Right now I´ve chosen:
RH_M40A3: S&B 3-12x50 PM II/LP/MTC
RH_M40A1: Redfield USMC Vietnam Era Accu-Range 3-9x40 scope (Vietnam era, the first Rem 700´s)
RH_M40A5: Premier Heritage 3-15x50 Tactical Gen 2 XR

I have left the old oval dots to the DMR:
DMR: USMC Unertl MST-100 10x scope

The navy also uses (or migh have used) the Gen 2 and I´ve left it to the M39:
RH_m39emr: S&B M8541 USMC Scout Sniper Day Scope (SSDS)

You can try all those rifles and reticles in game browsing them on my LEA config. And, of course you must have installed all my suggested mods too :)

Right now I´m working on a replacement file to replace BI ammo on all characters with Dagger ballistics ones. I will also replace the soldiers and weapons with the 3D models I believe are better. The ongoing results are causing a very good impression. The most notable one is that if the enemy is firing at you and you enter inside a house you will see his bullets piercing through the walls and hitting you eventually. Very reallistic!!!

Cheers mate!

Added 2 minutes later:

Oh, and just a nice notice. Some guys out there are using their hand held ballistic computers to make adjustments on the game and they are scoring hits up to 1500 m with the realistic Dagger Ballistic ammo. :-D

Added 18 seconds later:

With the .300 win mag.

No I haven't had a chance yet, been busy with other things. The Premier Scopes are excellent too.

Hey folks,

Here´s a sample of the replacement file I´m working on. It replaces most default units with Temp TF86 and BB_OA mercenary faces. An image is worth a thousand words:

Army


Marines


Delta


Force Recon


BAF Woodland


BAF MTP and Desert



In addition, all Bluefor, Opfor and Independent now carry Dagger Ballistics ammo and Weapons from mods like RH, SAM, SAL SOTG and Dagger Weapons of course. The upcoming new release of Dagger Weapons will have camos matching the replaced uniforms.

Thank you thehelpman!

The next steps are to replace ACR and PMC´s.

And, if I have the patience, to do the rest of eastern block ammo for Dagger Ballistics.

Hey Mast,

I´m just waiting for some other moders to answer my requests for some of their scopes.

I´m also trying to contact the creator of the L115A3 (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=10896), a guy called OOPz, but no one has his contacts. I can´t find him even to ask for his model. I would like to add that baby in NV and THW versions to the pack. Oh and make it in some fancy camo.

I´m still waiting for an answer of the R3F guys, for I´ve asked for their Night Force scope :)

I´ll wait a bit more until I have more improvements to the pack.

Right now, the next version of Dagger Ballistics will bring Dagger ammo on vehicles turrets :-)

Just downloaded this...few quick questions
I can't find the ammo crate, what is it under (if there is one at all)?
If there is no crate, what are the classnames for the rifles? There is no read-me with the download
Also, when I launch the game it says that certain other addons are required such as AAW, ACR weapons etc. But armaholic only lists ACE2 Core and Xtras and the only required addons. Do I really need the only 10+ addons to run this thing?

Hey islesfan186

There´s no ammo crate because we use LEA, which is 100000000000000 times better (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=15766).

Classnames added to the first post, thanks for asking.

I´ll think about a readme file on the next release, tks again.

You don´t need to have all the mods that are compatible with my mod as ACR or AAW. So don´t get yourself bored by those “Addon X requires addon Y” messages on game start. If you don´t like those messages then delete the Dagger pbo´s made for the mods you are not using. Putting all my 3 mods together the only files you really need are:
dgr_ballistics.pbo
dgr_ballistics.pbo.DGR.bisign
dgr_scopes.pbo
dgr_scopes.pbo
dgr_scopes.pbo.DGR.bisign
dgr_fix.pbo
dgr_fix.pbo.DGR.bisign
