  1. The title says gear also so here is my 1973 dated PRC-77 radio. It was originally repainted but I took that off and brought back the original paint (its pretty obvious why it was repainted). None of the wear is artificial. I just bought a vietnam Lightweight Rucksack so when I recieve that in the mail, the radio will be attached to the frame using a cargo shelf (which was common it Vietnam).

  2. I just want to point something out about the wood stock. I dont know if it was changed (I got my G&G M14 a year ago) but the wood is not naturally dark. G&G put some kind of brown paint on the wood to make it look like walnut. Since my M14 is used just about every week, the paint started to come off and look like ######. I just scraped it off and stained the wood. The wood is a nice quality but its not naturally dark like walnut.

  3. Simply gorgeous..... :o

     

    What wood kit is that may I ask? I have one inbound from BoomArms and will be working to make it look as good as your does!

    Well, the M14 started out as a G&G M14 Veteran but to make the wood stock look like walnut, G&G put a type of brown paint on the wood, which looked like ###### after some of the paint started to come off. I hated the look of the paint coming off so I scraped off the paint, which took a few hours, then stained the wood. I also switched the cheap plastic handguard it came with for a USGI one which is a bit darker brown. Some of the parts like the buttstock, stock liner screws and rear buttstock swivel are real M1A parts. Overall I am very happy with how my M14 came out.

  4. 101Matt, a M1A / M14 operating rod (which is the real gun name for the cocking handle) might work on a airsoft replica with some sanding and filing. The real one is the same exact design as the airsoft ones but the dimentions might not be 100% correct. Fulton Armory is selling USGI operating rods for $250, so if you can get one for $20, which I still very highly doubt, get a few and sell them. You can easily get $150 - 175 for one.

  5. Airsoft Club M14. Everything is cast off of real M14 parts. It should work. And about the price, well, my dad knows a guy who is a gun dealer and he specializes in M1 Garand/M14 parts. :D Hello cheap bolt.

     

    A M14 bolt is that thing that looks like a cover (that usually covers the hop-up on AEGs) and $10 for that is very very very very very low. A real M14 Bolt will deffinetly not work on any airsoft M14 replica Ive seen. A cocking handle, which is what you need, will probably cost the same or more. A real M1A or M14 front sight alone costs around $10 and a real M1A bolt costs over $100. A M1A cocking handle is basicly the same design as the airsoft ones and might fit with some filing and machine tools.

     

    EDIT:

     

    Link isnt working. Anyway type M1A (which is basicly a civilian M14) bolt in on Ebay and you will see how expensive they are. Look at the ones that are ending soon.

     

    It would be pretty much impossible for all the parts on that rifle to be cast off a real M14. I heard that the safety is non-functioning, if thats true, it proves your wrong.

    I didnt make that video but know the person who did and my Inokatsu M60A1 and G&G M14 Veteran are in the beggining and I can be sort of heard and seen saying "what the *fruitcage*" (if you turn the volume up a lot) after being shot in the stomach a few times by the guy with the gun cam (after I threw some small rocks at the enemy and running around with a stick, trying and sucseding in surrending little kids with it, after running out of ammo in my M60 but sadly thats not in the video) at the end of the video.

     

    EDIT

     

    Link didnt work

  7. Remove the metal C clip in front of the bolt handle, once thats off the heatshield should just lift off.

     

    Or...

     

    Unscrew the gas cylinder plug, unscrew the gas cylinder lock, slide the gas cylinder away from the front band, slide the front band away from the heatshield and then slide the heatshield off of the barrel. If you have no idea what Im talking about, look at this diagram. http://www.chestnutridge.com/14pic.asp .

     

    I take the handguard off the way I just wrote because I find it easier.

  8. My inokatsu AIMS only 39 made in the world (was only 9 when i orderd mine), with the tax i payed when i came to sweden its over 1K

    And dont forget the ridicilous prise for the bakelite 7.62x39 magazine kit XD

    Altho i dont use the mag on my AIMS, i use it on my AKM.

     

    My most expensive gun but i L :wub: VE it!

    Awesome gun! If I had a AK I would of bought that kit in a second, and I did have a chance to buy the kit :( .

  9. On a real M14 and some airsoft M14 flash hiders, there is a small screw at the bottom of the front sight post that can tighten into the castle nut to stop it from spinning and wiggling. If youres doesnt have that, just use pliers or castle nut pliers to get it on as much as possible.
