    Still a lot more than I'd want to spend on a sidearm, but compared to your usual WE/TM base pistol and a steel slide/barrel/fcg set, this is deffo a major contender if they can stick to the ~$300USD region.

    Let's hope they make Co2 mags for these, that big ol' telescoping bolt will have a lot of mass to shift.

    Wait, the MK46 is a full stock, but the battery is a stick AK type hidden in the gas tube? What?

    DAS AK Series by GBLS in 2020

    I was terribly unimpressed by the M4 models, ludicrous price point aside. - Terribad hop up unit choice (WA GBB M4), patched over with another terribad 'upgrade' (5KU clone of the Prime replacement unit that uses AEG spec rubbers and barrels) - Incredibly small cylinder volume necessitation stupid heavy spring to get reasonable FPS output - uses a GATE Pico mosfet to drive the system, which is right on the edge of being unable to deal with the current draw from the incredibly inefficient system - uses a Star Wei 30k motor with an extended armature which is a good motor, but they should have gone with a torque-ier model like the 22K - Magazines cost £1 per bb they hold - AEG requires a second mortage to buy - Mini deans connectors on a system that draws 40A avg in full auto, what the actual *fruitcage* Doubt there's much hope of improvement here.

    AR AEG Scratch Build

    Disclaimer: I run a tech shop, DLCustoms Ltd, so obviously this is a bit of a plug. In terms of build, internally, the biggest consideration is the length of the barrel - If you're going for about a 10-11" barrel or shorter, then a DSG would be the best shout, if longer, then I'd say go for a short stroke SSG build. In terms of externals, G&P or VFC would be where it's at, and as it's a G&P receiver set you'll likely run into less problems in terms of compatibility. G&P gearbox shells are pretty bombproof when radiused and set up properly and will be the most likely to fit into the receiver, hop up unit wise, if you're wanting to splash the cash, MAXX Pro hop up units are the best on the market and can be set up with a built in tracer unit if that's something you want. An R-hopped Lambda 6.05mm barrel would give you the best range and accuracy. Mosfet wise, GATE TITANs are the big name - as mentioned by Wingmann the PERUN optical is a good choice too, cheaper and very reliable - less options but a little harder to program. If you want to retain the feel of a tactile switch on the trigger pull, a BTC Spectre is really your only option. If limited to buffer tube lipos, my usual DSG set up will happily do 50rps, but that can be adjusted from between 30-60rps as you prefer. SSG wise for longer barrels, my usual go to build will do 33-35rps. If that sounds like too much, remember that trigger response is locked to RoF - at 20rps your cycle time is 50ms, at 40rps it's 25ms. You can 'cheat' it by using a mosfet and precocking, but that gearbox has to complete a full cycle before you can fire a second shot. Feel free to peruse my site for builds and plans etc: https://dlcustoms.eu/ I've got a lot more customer builds etc on my Facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/DLCustoms/

    H&K Picture Thread

    BF3, actually, it was a DLC weapon. I loved running it with the Kobra in CQB, that 2 body shot kill at close range was very handy.

    Finally managed to find a VFC 9" HK417 rail for sale that wasn't silly expensive.

    Can't speak for the HAO version, but the C&C is amazing. The AG unfortunately has off-spec M-lok slots. IIRC 5KU or Big Dragon will be making one too, but it's likely going to be cast and CNC finished for a much lower price point.
  9. Very nice work! At first I was a bit confused by you using large, flat 3-d printed plates bolted to trunnions... And then I realised you were going to replace those with laser/water cut CF panels and I twigged.

    TNT studio have made upgrade parts for it, seems to have a veeeeery smol piston and correspondingly low cylinder volume.

    Yup. Strongly suspect that the S&T K98k is a rebrand of the same model.

    Lithium battery help

    I've been running a Turnigy B6 clone for 5 years and not had any issues. Stick to using the 'Balance Charge' option and set the output current to no more than 2x your battery's capacity.

    Lithium battery help

    Get an iMax B6 off eBay, then never need to get another charger ever again.

    Deffo a WGC OEM. If it's not too expensive I might pick one up, but I very much doubt it has a hop up.
