    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    I finally got around to it and modified a real-steel receiver to fit a WE M16A1: It's a tight fit, but it does fit! A video covering the subject will me uploaded in the near future: https://www.youtube.com/specialweaponsandplastic

    9mm AR GBBR’s?

    This thread is really excellent! Precisely what we where missing. I also did some more research on the subject and found these floating around the internet: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/0d/93/82/0d938284eeb787713b67bad634e6c715.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/originals/71/45/b4/7145b4d7ed1f35c2b6ae77ad9748325a.jpg Should be the schematics previously mentioned. La piece de resistance is, what appears to be, a full 3D CAD rendering of the front sight assembly made by someone on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/RetroAR/comments/b3f6wr/a_personal_projectexperiment_a_3d_model_of_the/?ref=share&ref_source=embed&utm_content=title&utm_medium=post_embed&utm_name=02f3247decc145dea7e3b18421e51360&utm_source=embedly&utm_term=b3f6wr Apparently, it is meant for printing via ShapeWays metal printing service in steel, which appears slightly overkill in my book for airsoft use. I've been wondering about the front handguard cap, it is supposed to be 1,8 inces in diameter. But could a 45mm freeze plug be a reasonable substitute? If so, all we need is a high quality resin 3d-printer and things are afoot.

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    I finally got around to installing some Trijicon RE04 sights on my CAM870: I must say I like the way it turned out.

    Swedish K

    Apparently, a Hong Kong based company called Show Guns Shop is making an AEG (or is it an AEP?) version of the Carl Gustaf M/45. It is reported to be a early prototype, and it will be produced in smaller batches or larger quantities depending on popular demand: Sounds a bit tired with that low rate of fire in the video. Here's hoping it's only due to a drained battery.

    SHS / PPS …Kaput?

    Oh no! This is terrible! I need to get my hands on as many of their 870 shell catchers as possible before they are gone.

    Shotgun Picture Thread

    It does not look that hard to do. I had a look at the bolt from a friends Dominator 870 and compared it to my own APS bold, and it did not look overly difficult to convert it from Tanaka-style shells to APS standard. I am planing to make a video on the subject during this season, but I don't know exactly when.

    1911 Picture Thread

    I was playing around with Fusion360 and my 3d-printer and came up with this little beauty: So I began to wonder if there is any general interest among airsofters for a Hyman S. Lebman-style compensator, even though it's 3d-printed? If not, I'll just keep it as a nice touch for my future project.

    Decided to fix the double feeding issue on my CAM870P, and this is the result:

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    I've been experiencing some double feeding issues with my CAM870P, especially while ghost loading. So next week I'll upload a video of how I fixed this issue: If I remeter correctly, CatGutViolin had the same problem, so if you haven't fixed your shotgun yet, this video might be relevant to your interests?

    Modify MOD 90 Semi-Auto Shotgun

    This is really something. Like a Maruzen M1100 Defender, but with Marui shells. If they just fix the ejection port and make the forend real-steel spec., it just might be the bee's knees.

    And in more V1911 related news, here's the preview of next weeks video As promised, I will be showing how I modified a V1911 with a remote pressure switch, like the original, old-school, 310 from the 80's.

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    To repeat what NonEx so elegantly said: Yes x 4. And CatGutViolin: I recognize your problem since I have experienced it myself on one of my full length CAM870's. I can say that the problem is, much likely, not related to you or your ghost-loading technique. My full-length 4+1 CAM870P also seizes up by double feeding shells when it is ghost-loaded. And when I turned the shotgun upside-down I noticed that the left shell latch (part no. 870-17 in the CAM870 manual) was bent out of shape (APS call them "CAM870 ejecting plate" in their spare parts list, for some reason), and would not engage quickly enough to catch shell #2 when feeding the ghost shell, causing a double feed. On my AOW, the shell latch was in perfect working order, and I'm planing a "Tips & Tricks - CAM870 common problems" where I address this issue. My only advise would be to buy a new pair of shell latches (or "ejecting plates") and hope they don't get bent during shipping. You could, technically, bend the faulty latch back into shape. But it is a precision part, and you would be doing it at your own risk. Please update with any information and progress, since I am curious to see if this works out as good as I am hoping. If nothing else, I will cover the issue in season two.

    Ghost loading video now available. It might take some practice, but once you've got the hang of it, it's really easy:
