  4. Well, I haven't gotten around to making more hicaps or even using the thing in-game (thanks, pandemic!), but I was reminded the other day that the open-bolt trigger pack was a thing for AUG LMGs and figured hell, why not give it a try. Does it actually make the gun better? Hell no, it makes it minutely worse, since now it has lock time. Why'd I do it? 1. The real one had it and my relentless obsession with 'getting it right' won't leave me alone, so this is closer to how it should be. 2. More importantly, being open-bolt and full-auto-only are both pretty major distinctions from

  7. Let's go on with this thread here, too One of the very few non-airsoft modelguns in the collection: Shoei FG42 late version. If you ever get the opportunity to get your hands on one of these, take it! They re superbly built and incredibly nice collector's pieces. Had 2 of them for a while, the one without scope is sold by now. The one with scope has a very rare real ZF4 with even rarer, highly professionally reproduced Krieghoff mount rings made of steel.

  8. Apologies for barging in on your thread, but I figured it would be minimally less disruptive than having to make a whole new Pictures thread, since those have all been archived. Further apologies for the terrible photography, but your GHK HBAR is no longer a lonely soul! Incidentally, if you want a very-slightly-messed with steel gas block at a big discount, buzz me.

  10. I resurrect this thread to post a WE Apache, to which I fit a surplus German SEF trigger housing and original slimline handguard with no modification to the airsoft parts and a lot of swearing and Dremeling to that trigger housing. I even had to redesign how the selector switch locks into the trigger pack, because the normal catch on the selector pin was hitting the stop catch in the trigger pack before it could reach the FA position. Anyways, now it works, and since the airsoft guts were unaffected it's 100% reversible if I want the Navy pack back. I also scored an original Surefire grip

  11. I didn't make a build log before completing it as I had no idea whether it was actually going to work out, but here's a conversion of the GHK AUG to replicate the real AUG LMG variant used by the Austrian military and... nobody else, as far as I can tell. The real LMG consisted of basically just a normal AUG, but with two changes: A 24" barrel with integral bipod, and (doctrinally) 42rd magazines rather than the normal 30. There was a drop-in trigger pack that converted the gun to fire from an open bolt, but for all intents and purposes, the AUG LMG is basically just a different barrel an

  12. Man, this has been a day. I was going to wait to post again until I got my new parts and could properly test, but I have blown the last three hours trying to figure out the WEIRDEST problem. Okay, so, I now have three nozzles. Previously, I was using a high-power nozzle (~370-380fps on propane when unrestricted), with a grub screw mod to restrict the aperture and bring it down to 300fps. HPA was producing 300fps at ~105PSI, so comparable performance at comparable pressure. I modified the normal-power nozzle to do about 300FPS with .32s on propane. When I plugged in my HPA mag at ~105

It's an AEG, priced at USD 313,99, clocks in at 370 fps, takes standard M4 AEG mags, muzzle thread is standard 14mm CCW.

  14. Yep, drill-and-tap was my ugly solution. My plan is to (eventually) get a second full steel barrel setup, Loctite the extension, use the grub screw to secure it further, and then fill the grub screw hole with steel-reinforced epoxy and paint to match the barrel. I should think that'll be pretty solid. I did a bit more hop testing today, actually, and two things came of it. First is that the PDI bucking is slowly getting mangled as well and started to leak, so at this point I have very little confidence in using AEG buckings in the stock hop unit and will be retiring it. Second is that, si

  15. Awesome gun, and I'm perpetually envious of that Hexagon H-Bar kit. Is it an AEG, or did you adapt the barrel setup to fit the GHK? Also sending a PM your way about the gas block. Edit: I just found your post on Reddit about it being a GHK, using a cut-down Hephaestus barrel with a variety of extensions- that's a really clever solution! Have you run into my issue where the bipod caused the H-Bar extension to rotate off, or is there something that secures the extension? Small update- I got the Samoon rail accessory, and while I was correct in my assumption that the RMR base was a separate

Out of curiosity: Why have you sold the NE Sten already? @renegadecow: That is rad! Is that a custom build? Never seen a Type 11 airsoft before...

  21. I have indeed run into exactly that issue. I could in theory drill and tap it for a locking screw (to prevent it rotating) but it’s a rare part and that’s an ugly modification... Obviously the desirable approach would be to cut down another Hephaestus barrel to use for the Commando/regular configurations, and then use a proper grade of Loctite to secure the HBAR to this Hephaestus (which it’s timed to). That way I could complete a proper assembly with a longer inner barrel etc., but that’s all dependent on my being able to get another steel gas block for the second assembly, which as per

  24. Unfortunately it is "just" a modelgun, Shoei have released only their MP44, MG42 and G43 models with Escort internals. There has never been a FG42 airsoftgun, not even among Classics, where you sometimes find models noone today knew that they exist in the airsoft world (like AR18, Bushmaster, Jericho e.g.). S&T announced that they're plannung to build a FG42 GBB, which would be awesome... if only it wasn't S&T... However, Shoei's FG42 modelgun is so much fun to handle. You can manually cycle dummy rounds and they have even copied the realdeal's system: Open bolt on fullauto,

  25. So I thought I'd just start a renewal of the WWII guns picture thread - I clicked through the profiles of several moderators to ask if I am permitted to do this, and somehow all of them haven't been in the forum for about 1 to 10 years 😅 If it's not ok to start this thread, please just delete or lock it! Thought it would be nice to have this theme active again, there are loads of very nice WWII-themed airsoftguns out there :) Here we go with two from my collection, that I really like: Tanaka Arisaka Type44 Cavalry with folding bayonet: G&G M19

  28. Hi! I just do pre 90, so I'm not an expert, but if you want to be really cheapo: get a PLCE vest, a pakol, a DPM/DDPM smock, civvie "outdoor" or DPM/DDPM pants, touring boots and shemagh. For weapon: C8 look-a like (with ACOG), or SAW, look after paintjobs, and that's all. If you need more sophisticated, I have a picture about roll pin belt plus PLCE pouches (all spray painted), and cut off FLC used as H-harness (seems to be really practical). If thinking bit earlier (first gulf war), i have photo about ALICE gear added belt loops, to be able to fit on roll pin belt. For later one:

  30. After a couple weeks of waiting, the gun itself is done. I also added an RMR mount from Shapeways, so as to have a backup red dot for quicker acquisition at short range. The Haephaestus steel barrel is very nicely made. It didn't fit the barrel quite as tightly, so I had to shim it a bit, but otherwise it was easy to fit the gas block and get it all reassembled. Not really much more to say. The gun works and the barrels interchange. With the steel gas block and barrel, the gun actually is only half a pound lighter than the real thing, and the balance is identical. I'm looki

  32. I have lightened my recoil spring on my Steyr to 80%, seems fine. But yeah it does depend on your internal friction. RS Steyrs by design are pretty bad when it comes to managing friction, so they are both overgassed, and over sprung. The GHK is actually much better when it comes to that, as it has a nearly contactless bolt carrier to the receiver, and the hammer springs are rather light. In terms of accuracy, I modified the hop unit so it would fit a modified VSR hop rubber, on its AEG barrel, which I modified to fit the VSR hop rubber. That seems to work fine, and saves me buy

  36. Getting there, slowly. I call the shell done. Now time for internals... I don't think that You can go any better with regular AEG gun, not using RS parts - in terms of external finish and similarity to real stuff. Brief parts list: - King Arms Colt marked receiver set, cerakoted in-da-house (I do what I must because I can ) - steel magazine catch and selector lever (G&P and King Arms) - VFC CQD sling mount (in courtesy of intinerious) - C&C Tac Geissele Mk16 rail (yeah, HAO is better, so I stashed it for possible MWS build ) - C&C Tac Geissele ACH - Madb

  38. One, Ares of all people. Think KA was supposed to do a GBB version at some point. Not a whole lot has changed...there's a few RS manufacturer's that are leaning in quite heavily into the hobby via licencing e.g. Krytac have an AEG Kriss in the field, do a range of M4s and they also have .22cal real rifles that you can buy in the UK...that look an awfully lot like re purposed AEG parts. Umarex are slightly less annoying in that you don't get half a bible printed down the side of your VFC HK416 and VFC is churning out plenty of German pistols 'legitimately' rather than via 'Stark Arms'.

  39. Not a great picture and not sure about the optics but still a good marui custom gbbr. The rifle is light, the trigger is quite nice, the prowin evo are really tight fit (i first thought they weren't compatible) and deliver more power than marui's mag but it's kinda mandatory because of a heavier bolt. I won't recommand as must have because of the price tag and we can built nice or nicer airsoft guns for cheaper.

  41. My pride and joy, Prime/WA SCW 3 SIG GSR. The trigger, magazine release, slide catch, thumb safety, grip safety, mainspring housing, and hammer are all Prime/Anvil made. The outer barrel, chamber, recoil assembly/recoil plug, and barrel bushing are all made by Gunsmith Ninja (Some translations show it as Ninjya, probably just Ninja.)Blowback unit is CP made machined aluminum. I don't recall if it's 7075 or 6061. Grips are genuine Ergo grips. Not sure on/can't recall the brand of body pins, grip screws, inner barrel/hop-up assembly. Fitment is a little too good, I can't seem to remove the re
