  1. Don't you just hate it when you're selling something particularly rare cheaply then some bloke low blows and claims its "too" expensive?

    First look at the H.K 3Px4 GBB

    I did read through the thread and I understand that that piece is susceptible to breaking, even after the "revisions" that have been supposedly made in the newer models. . If I remember correctly, someone's PX4 started to have jams further down the road because the outer barrel chipped away at the contact point so much that the slide no longer pushed it back, so he used a WE thread adapter to serve as as contact point at the front, but I don't really fancy that. I suppose Ill just see how far the gun takes me; it was really meant as a backup/loan gun anyways, but if yours is still holding up I guess I shouldn't worry too much.

    First look at the H.K 3Px4 GBB

    Excuse me for the rather late reply, but I wanted to check up on the PX4s of other owners. Within a mag or two of shots the little piece on the slide where the outer barrel slams into inevitably snapped off. Trying to JBweld it back, I found that the epoxy was not strong enough, and it disappoints me to see how soft of a metal the outer barrel is, considering the rest of the gun is rather nice for the price. So my question is...how are the pistols fairing with this piece of slide missing/about how long is the life span of the outer barrel granted it wears quite fast as the slide returns to battery? I want to upgrade the pistol but I'm reluctant to if I know it will fail soon due to premature mechanical wear.
  4. Anyone know where I can find a real S&W M19 Trigger? = v=;

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    An M605, how delicious. I was thinking of building one as I have a soft spot for vintage AR variants. How did you cut the barrel down and re-thread it? On another note, a little update on my M733: I had gotten my hands on some paracord and decided to play around with it. Added a front grip similar to those MAC-10 straps; it works fairly well if you put your fingers through the loop and pull back while holding the hand guard, sort of like an magpul AVG.

    ...My heavy support weapon ... Just a bare bones TM M733 that I kind of want to turn into a m231 if I could find the elusive M633 DOE type hand guard...of course the A1 upper and lower will have to follow.
  7. is sad his SAA's finish is wearing at an unaturally fast rate..

    WE M14 Gas Blowback Rifle

    Hmm...I'm not too sure how the trigger assembly is rocking about - that might be just due to the stock been worn down like you said, but when I got my gun I *fixed* the receiver movement by putting a piece of cardboard at the front of the stock where it meets the collar. Crude, but it stopped the receiver movement at least...

    Screw Tightening? Im not too sure which ones you mean unless Im not looking in the right place XD. I mean the WHOLE upper assembly moves, it seems the stock has a little tolerance for the whole assembly

    WE M14 Gas Blowback Rifle

    Just got me own M14 today. First impressions were pretty good running through 4 mags; I only wish the metal finish could have been better... BTW, did anyone notice the receiver has a little jiggle in the stock? Its barely noticeable...but you can move the receiver forward and back a bit and I couldn't find a way to tighten it. Also, the flash hider is a pain to get off. The thread wont budge.
