    SMG Picture Thread

    I made it from scratch. It's just an oddly shaped, codura pillow case (with a buckle). The czech holsters can be modified to hold the gun with the standard mag. I also fitted a simple noose-knot to create a mounting point for a sling . . .

    With the holster, the scorp carries just like any other sidearm.

    Paratrooper M14 Project Update. Repainted black. Stick battery installed in stock (to make space I cut off the gas-slide and fused it to the charging arm). Specter 3-point sling.

    I agree. The parts hunt continues . . .

    M14 Picture Thread

    Thanks. It was a fun side project/experiment that turned out well. I agree about the looks. The trick is the angle of the motor, which is at the rear of the V7 gearbox. For a Mcmillan-style to work, the motor would have to be remounted like in the G&P DMR stock, but that would push the hinge for the folding stock back an inch or two. The motor extends up to the front edge of the cheek rest: If I could figure out a way to securely attach a side-folding stock to the DMR stock, that would be my next project. It would be really nice to keep the solid stock and add a hinge (kinda like a scar or something like that) so we could still have a large battery back there . . . . . I do like the Mcmillan stock though . . .

    Thanks. The grip works OK with the stock folded. My small hand fits, but would likely be tight for someone with big paws. I finished a rough install of the battery and this configuration has some promise. BTW, the blurry pic is a BM59 alpine troops or para troops foldable stock mounted under a M14. http://www.imageseek.com/m1a/gallery/close...h_folding_stock Here's another pic of the BM59 stock under a SOC16.

    Inspired by the two following pics and the desire to make the SOC16 a bit more close-quarters friendly, I looked into ways I could mount a side-folding stock on the M14. Mcmillan M1a Para M14 My original concept was to install a folding stock on the DMR stock, but the cost and location of the gearbox convinced me to go another route (at least for now). I had a spare M14 stock from my DMR conversion, so I decided to start with that as a base. Not having a pistol grip is a negative, but this will give me a taste of how it will work and help me decide if I want to improve upon the design. Custom Paratrooper TM M14 The unfolded length is the same as the standard stock. The grip is easily graspable when the stock is folded. It's a bit front heavy, but the balance is still OK. The stock is bolted to a steel bracket inside the grip, so it is very sturdy. M14 purists may cringe, but I am pleased with how it has turned out. With the creation of this stock, I now have the flexibility to have four different M14 configurations (two at a time): traditional, SOC16, DMR, and Paratrooper. I am still working on installing a stick battery in the foregrip portion of the stock. There's plenty of room, but I am waiting for a spare charging arm and a couple other bits because I want to be able to convert it back to a standard SOC16.

    Other than color/texture differences in the stock, the only differences are the inner and outer barrel lengths, scout sight mount, and front sight/flash hider. Here are some pics of the process to convert a TM M14 to a SOC16 (from old picture thread): TM M14 Barrel Chop Conversion to SOC16

    I'm gonna remove the cords and see if that helps - I doubt the mags will pop out.

    Gunshell, You're right. The shingles are tight when new. But after they are used for a while, they loosen up and allow for quicker access. I've had two of the TT shingles on the front of my PC for a couple seasons now and once they loosen up they are a bit easier to use. Access is almost as quick as the BDS double stack pouches on my other rig. Some magpulls would probably help. TBH, the mags are a bit harder to reach when they are higher up in a chest rig, so I am curious to see how this setup works in the field. I was looking for a setup that would carry a bunch of mags, allow for prone shooting, and not be quite as heavy/hot as a PC. Nice EBR BTW.

    Trying out a smaller scope on the TM M14 DMR. I'm looking forward to trying out the new Tactical Tailor MAV this spring.
