  1. Just when everyone thought I was done messing with PPS shells. Not really sure if this still counts as a shotgun since it doesn't technically shoot bbs. Instead the whole vog body is launched, though rather anemically. Will work better with APS CO2 shells no doubt, or maybe I'll install inner barrels in a few of them to shoot bbs just to mix things up. Firing vid https://imgur.com/5MyBqwi

  3. I had the opportunity to put the Striker through its paces last weekend. (Striker footage starts about two minutes in) For ammunition, I used APS X-Power shells, filled with gaseous CO2, and loaded with 11x 0.2s sandwiched between a pair of 0.75" cards made from 140lb watercolor paper. FPS was measured at 210-250. My impression is that the gun is excellent for CQB. Twelve shots is plenty high capacity (to the point where I never reloaded 'in the field', only in the safe room), it fires as quickly as I can pull the trigger. There are a couple of double-taps in there on

  8. TM NGRS G36KA2 turned into a Garand Thumb G36C, part list: - CA G36 Knight's Armament sight rail, chopped down - VFC G36 RAS for GBBR - VFC G36C FH - Manta Defence rail cover - Magpul AFG2 - WE IDZ stock - Mystery G36C grip with symbol marking over the S/E/F of the G36K - G36 PMAG A few 3D printed parts, as this is an AEG, there's a huge gap between the handguard and the body after the VFC rail was installed, so I had to print a piece and fill it with Milliput. A hole is also visible through the secondary bolt position for security the barrel,

  9. Well, it’s been 10 years or so since I last posted but I thought that this was Arnies worthy Purchased as a 2 tone, this is a good old fashioned Cyma clone M14. Hop up was garbage so swapped it out for a TM. Reshimmed, wired for a Gate-style fet, stuck a higher torque motor in, sorted the airseal and put a ML Macaron in to cap it off. Removed the bar for the fire selector to give a mechanical semi-only lock. Consistent output of 430-435 with 0.2’s Managed to find a real wood stock. It was a bit “orange” so I sanded it, stained it and sealed it with some OSMO (lovely stuff). Got a lo

  12. Alright, I got the barrel done. The sizes of pipe I chose worked out perfectly, aside from the innermost size of pipe needing a bunch of sanding to reduce its outer diameter. A bit of paint finished it off. Here it is next to the original. And here it is installed in the gun, from the business end: Notice how the shell appears ever so slightly off center? Yeah, those concerns about the indexing face peening are coming back. Fortunately it seems to work in testing, but I could see this causing significant problems if it gets worse. Luckily it's not an insurmountabl

  15. First batch is done and the process has been ironed out, so I can confidently say that this deficiency in the base design has been addressed, and these guns are now 100% good to go. I can keep making these as long as people want them, so if anyone's interested shoot me a PM or contact my team through Facebook. Mods, I apologize if this is veering into a commercial post- just figured this is the most relevant place, since the plastic barrel is really the only glaring weakness of the original gun.

  16. For sure, but that larger production is really the question at the moment. I really, really hope that Octagon follows through with producing more. Best case would be if they can reproduce the original design, with all the same steel parts, and with black furniture and metal barrel. The current price is hard to justify with those caveats involved. In related news, I tweaked the barrel design from my prototype a bit (swapped one size so much less sanding needed), and got some quotes from two local machine shops. Both were prohibitively expensive for the volume involved, so I'm going ahead w

  17. I got this ostensible gel blaster from Eagle Airsoft & Hobby for a pretty hefty sum. It took longer than they advertised for it to ship, and communication was spotty, but it did get here. The gun shipped in a large paint bucket. Despite the exterior dents, the gun itself was securely packaged: Out of the foam, I had the receiver assembly, barrel assembly, anodized aluminum muzzle nut, six shells, and a pack of spare parts. First impressions: All the metal on the gun is phosphated steel with clean welds, with the selector and trigger parts being nicely CNC mach

  19. Its been a while since is posted my last DIY projects (Mk12, LVOA, Socom RC, Mk18) So i decided it was about time to make "something" by myself again. Nowadays i am doing a bit more research on tactical apparel, and gear, and so i ended up with Plate Carriers and their correct wearing, and sizing. And that starts with the correct size, and carrying of the ballistic plate itself. I started a more in-dept research concerning, Milspec ballistic inserts, the so called SAPI, or ESAPI , i compiled those results in the following info carts. SAPI : Small

  22. Got the Armson. The mount holes are spaced improperly, a little too small, and need to be countersunk to fit the screws, but I worked it out. It's actually working for me, surprisingly, with no phoria, because it's such a slim optic positioned far enough forward that it takes up very little of my field of view. Incidentally, I found another source of missing length: judging by how the sight aligns, I believe the receiver is a little bit shorter than the real thing.

  25. A while ago, I started to focus a bit more on Gear & Apparel, when taking a more closer look at SOF BDUs, I found out that Crye Precison dominates this market. Crye has several BDU versions (GEN's), and with some searching, I found lots of info on the web, though a bit shattered on multiple forums & blogs, I found this was quite difficult for me, to get the overview of the various Gen's, so I started with collecting photos in separate gallery's, and writing down the main features of each version, after a while it was become a quite huge document on my PC. And since here isn't yet

  26. The Crye Precision GEN3 Battle Dress UniformIs probably one of the most used BDU's these days amongst SOF units, about the remarkable history of Crye, and their BDU's there is a lot to tell, check out my Crye BDU guide here, if you wanna read more about itThis makes the Crye G3 a must for Milsim/Reenactment/ImpressionistsIt is not surprising that the Crye G3 is also very popular for Airsoft loadouts, given the great “tacticool” factor, and the “build for combat” design.However ... an original Crye G3 set quickly costs 400 to 500 $, real Die Hard reenactors often look for used Crye's on Ebay fo

  29. First picture so far of the elusive "Russian" as they call me at the local field. Pretty sure the ref has film of me in this bunker puttering about back and forth because the cover is all and I cannot find a good angle for anything in it. Most of the time for this gamemode of capturing said bunker I am off to the left scaring folks trying to come up these two paths near the field netting walls. I'll probably be double posting soon if anything else surfaces.

  30. And just a quick double post before I forget: After further examination, I believe the misalignment is not indicative of peening, but rather just the result of things not being quite perfectly aligned during manufacturing. Close inspection of the indexing pin and the stop surface shows that the two are mated perfectly, whereas if the stop surface were peening I would expect to see a gap, and the curvature that I thought looked like distortion of the material is just where a circular channel (for the indexing pin) was drilled in the middle of a longer curved face. So it looks like the sort

  31. kept going back and forth about painting the mod 1....so I settled and painted half of it! I also have an LPVO on the way for my URX 3.1 build (ICS PCR97 base..the old school gray body version, not the new)... so once that shows up I think all my rifles will officially be...dare I say..."finished!" (so that just means I have to come up with a new build lol)

  32. Previous iterations of the TM from a few months back. Right now it looks more like @bladerunner168's, though in the process of fitting the MLOK I snapped the pathetically weak little bit that sticks out of the GB and interacts with the last-round stop tab on the mags, so it's currently disassembled.

  33. Quick update as I go. Six hours in a cup of Greased Lightning stripped all the anodization off the muzzle nut, then I sprayed it black. Piece of cake, and coupled with the furniture being dyed rather than painted means there's no chance of black rubbing off to reveal orange/bright red. I did some measurements on the barrel. It turns out that it's the same internal diameter (~0.68") as the APS hulls themselves, which is great for gas efficiency- but with the APS shells it also has a full 3mm of cylinder gap between the front of the shell and the barrel. Frankly I'm surprised the wads

  43. Left is before, right is after, centre is the actual product. Many years ago I attached a patch to a Crye G3 shirt and didn't like the lack of security with the split velcro, I also didn't like the fact that the AC and G3 lines have never featured pattern matched loop. After a while I started getting custom tactical sewing guys in the US to just sew hook on the back of camo loop in different MC patterns, US Woodland, Desert Night etc to both bridge those gaps and add camo to my Crye shirts and replicas from Roman. Fast forward to 2019 I heard of a company able to print loop almost
