  2. IDK.... 80% jig? even with that I won't be too sure maybe a manual mill equipped with DRO, but that could still be PITA to work with
  3. Yesterday
  4. So... I recently purchased two WE M4 GBBR receiver kits from KY Airsoft. Two blank uppers and two lowers, one with Colt markings and the other with Daniels Defense ones. Looked super nice, tight fit and the pin holes on both, just looking at the blank kits (upper and lower, switching them around) seemed to line up between the two kits. Which is great because I got the two uppers to have for my dual upper URGI build project. Basically building the two URGI uppers with the two blank uppers on the Colt lower and having the Daniel Defense for something else in the future. BUT! When KY Airsoft re-finished (i.e. new "paint") the receiver kits they did not re-finish the receiver pin holes, making them undersized by about 0.3-0.5mm So, when I went to install the parts and pins in the new kit, they did not fit. The receiver pins are 6.29mm in size (using RS DPMS pins. Have worked on previous WE M4 GBBR rifles that were complete and came with WE OEM pins installed). The receiver holes were something like 5.95mm-6.15mm in size. At first I put the receiver pair I was working on together, made sure they were a tight fit and the holes lined up and went to work with some 400 grit sandpaper wrapped around a 5.5mm punch to get the size right. After an hour of working the punch/sandpaper in the holes and the pins still not fitting I got frustrated and moved on to some more aggressive methods... 😐 Busted out my $20 USD hand-help cord-less drill and went to town with a 6.5mm metric bit. Needless to say, it did not go well. Firstly because the bit is too big, secondly because I did it hand-held with a $20 USD cordless drill, and I did not clamp the receiver kit in place so when the drill bit bit into the aluminum receiver it jerked around and I ended up with some pretty wonky holes... Anyways. Doing some thinking and math I would assume the receiver pin holes should be 1/4" in size, which equals 6.35mm. Meaning the pins will fit but not have a lot of play in them. My question is, and what I need help with is. How in the h*ll would I go about re-sizing the receiver holes to the proper dimensions, keeping them centered and aligned, without jitter when drilling, AND doing this consistently on two receiver kits so that they would be interchangeable when finished? Sounds like an impossible task without a solid jigg, a super sturdy and precise drill press or with a CNC router or something. So, I would like to know what your thoughts and ideas on this are, and what I can do to get this right on the receiver kit that I haven't messed up, and the new kit I bought to replace the one I damaged 😛 BTW, I have tried making this dual upper dream become reality once before by just buying a stand-alone upper (years ago, not from KY) to swap with my existing old WE M4 GBBR kit. On that upper that I got the holes weren't even in the right place to go with my existing lower so... Maybe I am chasing the impossible here? HALP, my OCD is killing me 😢 Maybe one of my Swedish buddies can help? @MODDAN @GRIM! @Dj_komodo

    Hi, it looks really great with your grips. It’s actually so refreshing to see one of my favourite pistols and the pistol of childhood ( Double Impact and few more :-D) in the end-less sea of Glocks, boring Glocks, even more boring Glocks and urrrghhh I am Dying Hard with another boring Glock:-D Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    One day to play and not only is it torrential downpour right now but family member needed the car. Sucks because the next game I would go to is when the folks are on vacation so I have to stay home and watch the dogs and house. Missed the weekend before when it was nice out because of the same reason (they were on a trip up north for the weekend). Meanwhile work is in a maelstrom atm due to several people leaving/retiring so there is that fear of the future. During my shift on Friday I started getting the existential crisis thoughts again. Folks there told me I'm stressing out too much and going to have a heart attack.

    Seen Ohshiboom grenades go off with the pin still in. Took a hard knock to do it, but still. Didn't sit right with me.
  14. Never heard of them. Looks like the trades have been Sharpied out in those photos. Personally, I wouldn't buy something like that without proper trades. If it's pretty much TM compatible and CO2, I'd imagine KJW have something to do with it.

    Great shop with lots of choice. But can anybody access their site now? It seems to have been down for two or three days now...
  16. Airsoft GI is offering a Pre-Order of the Taran Tactical Combat Master 2011 used in John Wick 3 made by KLI of Taiwan. The pictures available look pretty good. There are no trades but the barrel is marked with the correct 9X19 chambering. Pistol is Green Gas and C02 ready and if pre-ordered (available in August), will come with a 2nd magazine. It looks to be a direct copy of the version which EMG (Evike Airsoft) is offering as a pre-order for "significantly more", especially if ordered with a 2nd magazine. Their verson, however, may be comming with full proper trades. I've never heard of KLI and cant find any info about them. Thinking of pulling the trigger on the purchase but would like to know more about them. Generally, I'm not a big fan of Pre-Orders. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks mate. They are hydro dipped, then coated in 2k matt clear coat. Takes a couple of hours per pair, but worth it imo.

    Hi mate. It's a Marui US M9. The grips are the originals which I hydro dipped and then applied a 2k matt clear coat.

    Really liking your process of refinishing the plastic grips. They make those pistols look great. You need to do a video!

    The box is cool, but this M9A3 is a piece of . Each shot goes a different direction and gave up on her. Using the box for Marui M9A3 and might buy KSC’s A3 instead. Who is the manufacturer of your’s? Looks really good with the grips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Beretta US M9. I've refinished the oem grips and cut the barrel back. One of my fave all time guns, but never liked the protruding barrel.

    Gunmane's Gearbox Woes

    Apologies for the necropost, but figured I'd best type this in my own topic rather than just post it in status bar. Been tinkering around with my main kalash's gearbox with some new shs 12:1 gears I got yesterday. Originally had 16:1 ones previously. Spring is a shs m110, piston is shs blue 14 teeth, most everything else is shs or stock bits, and motor is a shs high torque (see image, it's what I have in most of my replicas save for the cyma ak105 that still uses its stock motor). Getting roughly 355 fps/1.48 joules with .25s (so hovering around the 400 fps with .2s limit here for full auto aegs. Shim job and aoe probably not the best in the world, nukefet hasn't blown up yet, but I get the fear the motor might heat up too much/leading to much worse if I was to abuse full auto or spam semi too much. Much of what I've looked up around the internet is folks saying "yeah, my shs high torque motor/12:1 gear setups is pulling a m120/30/40 just fine at high rps!!!" but they are all using 11.1v lipos (and personally I'm not looking to make it crazy like that, just wanted to see if I got some more zing for the gear change). I've got a m95 spring that I ordered to possibly throw into the bizon (since the asg green spring refuses to settle below 350 fps for me), but I am wondering if it would be better to try it in my main kalash's gearbox to see if the load on the motor is lightened, though I fear it might overspin/pme due to being a much lighter spring. Anyways, there's my rambling for the evening.

    PTS licenced MAWL

    It's a good thing they're doing a licensed replica though, even if it's just a battery box, it pretty much gives people like FMA or Blackcat a shell to copy from and stuff cheap lasers into for a fully functional replica.
