    AKMS dimensions?

    Hello everyone! I am in need of some assistance for a future project. I am trying to find out the receiver dimensions for the airsoft version of the AKMS. I believe Marui calls it the "AK-47S": https://www.moaihobby.com/shop/index.php/tokyo-marui-ak47s-aeg-rifle-black.html What I am particularly interested in are these A and B measurements from the rear of the receiver, where the stock attaches: Width between the receiver walls (A), and the thickness of the receiver walls themselves (B), which I have assumed are the same. I am also interested in the dimensions of the folding stock attachment holes on both sides of the receiver, if they differ at all: If somebody could measure their airsoft receiver and contribute any details, that would be greatly appreciated! Or if somebody could point me in the direction to where I might acquire said receiver, complete with folding stock, that would be awesome! I do not need a functioning airsoft rifle, no mechbox, inner barrel, outer barrel, gas tube, nor gas block... the entire front set plus dust cover is unnecessary really. It just needs to be cheap.

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    How is the engraving on the WE Colt M4A1 lower? Bought one from AsiaAirsoft and was not impressed. Looked like it was made using electropencil or something. If the KY lives up to the high standard I expect them to, this might be the go-to place. Any chance of a close up? Horsey in particular?

    This is so unnecessary... I must have one! Shame it will most likely just be a holster filler like the Dan Wesson 715. Just need to find a source for some nice wood grips to boot.

    9mm AR GBBR’s?

    I remembered that build thread very well, Brigg. It made me want to do one myself. But at the time I lacked the skills and equipment necessary. And by the time I got a 3d-printer the thread was lost to the ages. Have you still got the pictures? I remember they where very detailed. Any chance of a 3d cad-file so one can make a similar SMG for oneself? Especially the custom nozzle and feed ramp, which keeps eluding me. The really tough part is the upper, which I guess is quite easy to come by in the U.S., but not so much in Europe. The handguards have already been made in CAD and is available for anyone to download: https://grabcad.com/library/m231-633-doe-handguard-1 But how did you make the front sight assembly? Did you buy a real parts kit, or was that also handmade? In any case, this made me want a KWC UZI for sure.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Got a spot of help from NonEx, and have come to the conclusion that I need to invest in a MapleLeaf barrel. Grinding down the bridge to allow for VSR rubbers seems like a bad idea to me.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    I've got a question for the hive-mind, since I have failed to ascertain the information myself: Just purchased a RA-Tech barrel for my open-bolt WE M4, and since it's RA-Tech the barrel is bridged on the end meant for the hop-up housing: http://en.ratech.com.tw/english/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=116:rag-we-035&catid=27:ra-gas-series&Itemid=119 The question at hand is: Which rubber fits this unholy apperition? MapleLeaf VSR-rubber was a no-go, and the MapleLeaf Decepticons rubber didn't work either. The seller was of no help either, and since I don't have the time and energy to throw more money at this issue I thought I'd ask around. If somebody knows which hop-up rubber works, and a store that carries it (preferablt European or Scandinavian, but beggars can't be choosers) you'll make me ever so happy!

    Shotgun Picture Thread

    Many reasons, I guess. First off the Dominator is wrong on many areas. The ejection port, the weird cramped barrel... that was the first thing that put me off that platform. And also, for me, it's the fact that it is a Tanaka clone. Say what you want about the Tanaka shotguns. They look great, they have lots of metal components, but they are really more showpieces than actual skirmish guns. Mine underwent several reparations before I sold it on, and the inner barrel design coupled with limited BB's is really a let down for me. The reach may increase slightly over an APS shotgun, but the added realism of shooting slugs (which may or may not be appropriate) out of a CAM870, and being able to vary my ammo more than BB weight makes it more worth while than a Tanaka, PPS, Dominator, or any other gun of that denomination.

    Just tried this on my double-feeding 14-inch SWAT, and it works great! I just held the shell latch arm with two pliers and bent it to submission. Would not recommend that method to anyone else, since it is rather hit-or-miss, but I was lucky. And it does require some serious effort to bend the arm...

    Beretta Picture Thread

    Here's another question for the hive-mind: During the 1980's / early 90's there was a company in the US which made a OC pepper spray attachment for Beretta M92-style handguns (and other handgun models) so one could combine less-lethal force with deadly force all in one platform (yes, fantastic idea and not at all risk of confusion, I know...). The company's name is unknown to me, however it is known that Safariland made a series holsters for this exact combination (for instance the 6280-732-62). So if anyone knows the name of the company that made the OC add-on, or the model name / product name, or even quite possibly has a picture of this abomination, in favour of a 3D-printing project, it would be greatly appreciated.

    That Mafioso is indeed a thing of much beautility! I would buy one in a heartbeat as soon as finance allows it. Especially the new 2017 version. Does Mafioso take on custom requests by any chance? If one, for example, would like a TLE Custom II slide instead of the LAPD slide, so it better matches ones Sheriff gear?

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    Wait... doesn't the PPS side saddle have the same dimensions as the shell catcher? Can't you just modify the side saddle with a regular 5mm drill bit for metal? The PPS Shell catcher doesn't sit 100% dead center on the APS pins, but when tightening the screws it works very well.

    That is just lovely! Now I must do something similar myself. Though I did make a Masterkey out of a Marushin M500 and a G&P Masterkey kit, now I need another one...

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    Lookin' good NonEx. So you're going to copy the Special Weapons And Plastic approach and adjust the hole? I was looking at a Mesa Tac. 8 round side saddle myself, but after measuring and mocking up I realized I would be unable to fit my GG&G rear sling mount with the side saddle installed, which is a bummer: Looking at the SWAP video I also noticed that you technically don't need to move one of the holes the entire distance, especially on a Mesa Tac 4-round side saddle which has quite thin walls round the mounting holes. You could just move each hole half the distance. But on these 6-round and 8-round saddles, there's quite a lot of material surrounding the front mounting hole, so that's no problem. The TacStar saddle used by SWAP also has the plastic shell clamp to cover the surgery, which will hide any mistakes and rough edges.

    1911 Picture Thread

    Yeah... some sort of pixel camo that's not M90. I'm no expert on the subject. Saw the Silverback laser grip on Boom, and they're not exactly what I'm looking for, but they'll do in a pinch. And I'm not in a hurry to finish my project, as usual. What kind of grips did you find on eBay? If they're diamond-cut AlumaGrips, that could absolutely work. http://i41.tinypic.com/izyjjq.jpg

    1911 Picture Thread

    I've been looking in all places I could think of, but alas my Google-fu is sub par on this topic, so I must ask here: Does anybody know where I can get hold of some Marui Foliage Warrior grips? Are they available separately as a spare part, or must I find used ones? Similar Marpat camo 1911 grips could work though.
