  2. Oh yeah, forgot to post my last project here. Mafioso Hardballer Longslide (refinished with aluminum oxide blasting + polishing slide flats), Mafioso laser, real Weaver ring, real NPC mount, DIY pressure switch. Don't buy the Mafioso kit or laser, it's worth maybe a quarter of what they charge. I had to fix a bunch of stupid little things with this gun to make it usable, and the use of real mounts are solely because the Mafioso parts were hot garbage. On the bright side, since I've now reworked the laser to hold zero and mount with real-steel hardware, I was able to do

  6. Time for another build, this time the polar opposite of last year's. I'm looking to replicate a LaFrance Specialties M16K, a weird ultra-compact AR variant designed in the 1980s. Tim LaFrance intended for it to be used by combat vehicle crews or for shooting through the windows of a police cruiser, but the only success it ever saw was showing up in a couple of movies and shows (including Naked Gun 33 1/3, Miami Vice, and Escape From LA). Basically, it's what today we would call an AR pistol, using an 8-3/8" barrel. However, there are two funky things about it. First, it use

  11. Kind of a Resident Evil-Village WolfHound inspired AK. In the game they use the "Dragoon", some kind of 7,62 AKSU. So... I tried to imagine what heavier version would look like. In two variants. A "shh-quiet" and a "LOUD NOISES".

  12. If you're anything like me, the PSG-1 has always been a "bucket list" gun. I was fortunate enough (after about 17 years of drooling over one) to pick a TM PSG-1 up back in 2017. It was a beautiful gun, but definitely felt a little fragile...like it was meant to be more of a display piece than something to take outside and show the world. Now we fast forward to 2020 when VFC announced that it will be releasing the PSG-1...all the feelings I had during thouse young teenage nights of playing Metal Gear Solid and drooling over the TM PSG-1 came back ten-fold. I didn't know if it would be any good

  13. I found my list of things I had to do to make the gun serviceable. -Refinishing the entire gun by media blasting with 120-grit aluminum oxide, then polishing the slide flats -Major reprofiling of the barrel and slide to address a serious fitment issue during cycling -Shimming the laser diode inside the housing (it didn't even work out of the box) -Cutting down the vertical adjustment screw on the rear sight to stop it contacting the nozzle -Securing the rear sight after the adjustment screw head stripped through the sight itself -Shimming the mainspring for reliable function on

  19. If the handguard cap works out I'll definitely be putting it up on Thingiverse. Just need to ensure it actually works as ordered first and adjust the design if needed. Anyways, I received the Moly Resin, modified the upper, and fabricated a rear sight. After a bunch of careful measurement, I came to the conclusion that the centerline of the front sight needed to be 7-8mm above the carry handle. This is important to get right, as there is no provision for elevation adjustment aside from flipping between the two apertures on the A1 rear sight. So the sight was made from a 12mm OD / 10mm ID

  20. Or, frankly, just get one milled out of aluminum tubing, or even sleeve it together yourself. The Mafioso one isn't accurate to the real prop, doesn't hold the laser securely (which, itself, is about a two-dollar Aliexpress probably-not-eye-safe laser), and uses a toggle switch to turn the laser on and off which is about as useless as it gets. So, there's not a lot of value there. The Weaver ring is cheaply made and not actually Weaver spec, so it can't be replaced without also replacing or modifying the mount. Which is a good idea anyways, because instead of the mount and grip being

  24. Thank you, pretty pleased with how it came out, although I suspect based on reference images that the handguard is actually slightly oversized compared to the real thing. But it's held up pretty well in gameplay, so can't complain. I actually have some updates that I haven't posted here. After trying it out in-game, I did some further experimentation with other configurations. Using an Elcan seems to work pretty well for long-ranged fire (although the replica isn't spectacular), but the reduction in FOV and lack of backup irons is problematic when I don't know where targets will be a

  31. It's good. Lots of little details like the bolt stop and the barrel removal lug is functional. BG used a Tanaka inner barrel and proprietary hop up rubber. The machining is great but the gun is way smaller than the Ares or even Asahi in length. The performance is awful though. HPA has come a long way and some people offered to help me with it. I plan to rework it to look more accurately to the RS, which is easier than the Ares.

  35. I see the carry handle gang is strong in here lately... here's my contribution. Base is an EMG XM177. All that's left is paint (and probably a light on the barrel). I will probably spray her in a similar paint scheme as my old WE Gordy's build. Also, ignore the white ziptie...it will be replaced. I had to cut the black one off to swap the pad onto a better fitting stock and didn't realize I didn't have any more black ties long enough to fit.

  39. First, *fruitcage* the government, second, a kingdom for a welder. My office chair wobbles annoyingly due to shoddy welding, and due to the recently introduced pay cuts in the civil service sector and frankly idiotic management of the national budget including galloping inflation and skyrocketing prices, I can hardly afford a new one. The *fruitcage* bastards deprived us of bonuses and bypassed the parliament to grant themselves raises while the economy is tanking. Send help. And cruise missiles.

  40. Got the carry handle done- I reinforced the mount bracket further, then bent the rod (not the easiest thing with hand tools). I filed a notch on the rod which a grub screw on the handle indexes into, and cut grooves for E-clips to keep it attached to the mount. And then on the bipod, I epoxied small strips of steel, then bent the ends, and reinforced with screws. These hook into the handguard and provide the retention mechanism to keep the bipod legs folded up. And that about completes the project. Here's some glamor shots of the full thing: I might

  41. It's actually going faster than expected. First off, the barrel sleeve and bipod yoke. This is not the cleanest work I've ever done, but it does hold. The barrel sleeve fits very snugly over the barrel, and indexes via a cutout to accommodate the bayonet lug. The birdcage is then torqued down in front of it and that holds it in place. On the underside of the barrel sleeve, I've filed a cutout. There's a grub screw protruding up from the bipod yoke which fits into this cutout and can move from side to side. That keeps the bipod on the gun and allows about 30 degrees of rotation t

  45. Nice ARP9 build. I’m thinking of doing something similar with an ARP9 or CA X9. How happy are you with the polymer body? I’ve been thinking of going with a slightly longer rail (6-7 inch). Did you play around with other rail options before settling on this setup?
