    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    You've done a good job fitting the grip, I may forget the CAA one I have & get the Magpul version. The other issue with the CAA grip is the fact that it is narrower where it meets the receiver so the cut out for the original grip location lugs is exposed. Also the recoil buffer block pokes out the bottom of the receiver by approximately 1mm, so that will need modifying to allow the grip to sit flush.

    Good idea to put some metal rods in, I may try that out on mine.

    I think the Well G74 is different to the WE, I tried fitting a CAA pistol grip but it needs some work to make it fit. The trigger guard is to wide, the hole for the fixing bolt is to small to allow the grip to slide over the grip nut/spiggot, the spiggot is to long so a spacer is needed between the head of the fixing bolt and the grip. Also the Well's fixing bolt is M5 the CAA grip comes with an M6 bolt.

    I noticed that you have a Magpul MOE pistol grip fitted, did that need fitting or was it a drop in fit ?

    I think that is what I'll have to do.

    When I tried fitting the b11 to the G74A the front gets pushed up by the lower hand guard cap. This results in the upper hand guard not fitting, I'll see if a different manufacturers end cap is bigger, otherwise material will need removing from the b11.

    Looks good, did the b11 rail drop right in or did you have mod it or the AK ? I have the hand guard but it doesn't line up properly on my Well G74A.

    Has anyone fitted a Zenitco b11 railed lower handguard to the WE AK74 UN or the Well G74A ?

    Krylon Paint Removal

    The original Dettol antiseptic has something in it that breaks the paint down. Just using a small brass bristled wire brush on its own didn't touch the paint, but after soaking the handguard in Dettol I've managed to remove 80% of it. In the tub of Dettol there are very small flakes of paint, so I don't think Dettol resolved paint just breaks it down. Greg

    Krylon Paint Removal

    Thanks for the info, at the moment the handguard is in a tub of neat Dettol, been soaking for 24 hours. Some of the paint has come off using a brass wire brush, if it doesn't work I'll try one of the other suggested chemicals.

    Krylon Paint Removal

    If this question has been asked before, please accept my apologies. I have just got hold of a handguard & A2 stock for a MP5, unfortunately it has been sprayed foliage green apparently using Krylon paint (I want it back to its original unpainted finish). I have tried to remove the paint using Detol, Fairy power spray, Mr. Muscle oven cleaner and surgical spirit. The only one that removed a small amount was the surgical spirit. Can anyone tell me the best way to strip the paint without damaging the plastic.
  12. I have for sale a new WE G26C gbb pistol, boxed with one mage & instructions, never been fired. If anyone is interested I can email photos (for some reason this site will only let me upload 80kb's worth of pictures). Asking price is £70 which includes paypal fees & postage.

    Just checked my paypal account & ACMgear have refunded my money (I did tell them in my last email that I would contact paypal again). ACMgear still haven't sent me a message telling me the money was refunded, in fact they haven't communicated with me in any way at all. Don't think I'll shop with them again.

    I've bought from them before & received the order with no problems, however I placed an order for a pistol grip on 26th June but heard nothing from them at all. I contacted them via their ticket system 2 weeks ago but have had no replies, last week I started a paypal dispute with them & yesterday paypal sent me message saying the case was closed because a tracking number has been supplied. Unfortunately the tracking number indicates that the destination for my order is South Africa not the UK. I have contacted ACMgear today asking what is going on, but i don't expect a reply, I suspect the only reason they supplied the tracking number is to get the paypal case closed. I must admit I don't really know what I can do, guess its back to paypal.
  15. Hi, posted on the forum but I'd like this if it is still available.

    Cheers,
