The issue, once again, is NOT real world vs airsoft to makie it as accurate as possible.
The issue is that people have abused Light short machine guns because it, in airsoft, doesnt have any drawbacks but you gain a ton of advantages. They are then running around with it as any assault rifle. The same applies for Sniper weapons, but is very obvious when it comes to the M249 Para, something you can see once on game site, its an overwhelmingly most popular machine gun
This has caused an increasing number of incidents and injuries over the past games.
Since it is impossible for us to enforce safety distances everywhere all the time, its much more logical to lower the power of those weapons, JUST as they are lowered IRL as a drawback of being shorter.
Yes yes, I can see this decision and to me, it makes sense. You guys know the best about these cases. I mentioned the MK46 since it's basically really close to Para model, so I guess this goes to class 2 also?
In the DMR I really don't agree with the stock decision. My statements are above. The gun length remains close to the same, it's not that you really loose the stock completely if you use the stock in the shortest position. The main portion of the length comes from the barrel length, as it should. Meaning maneuverability is more limited still.
Why I mention the real world, that since the rules to this day has been more like "mimics the real world counter part", people have build the weapons based on that. For the M249 Para change the problem is almost non existing, but for the DMR stock restrictions things change more. I hope that you would reconsider this, there is still time.
I'm writing this not because this rules affect me personally, but because I'd hope to clarify the situation for other players wondering the same cases. If you decide to go with this, I'm fine with it also. I just wanted to raise some issues you might have not thought.
