  1. Sorry @PayloadCo_Blazes, just seeing this now. I'm glad you found my writeup useful. Going "whole hog" with a build like this is a process, but it's fun to push the performance envelope of a system to see what it can really do when the work is put in. Chronoing tri-shots is tricky. In a perfect world, loading a shell with one bb would give you a clean, realistic velocity reading. In reality, the other two barrels being empty absolutely effects the flow and pressure within the system, affecting the reading you get from the one loaded barrel. I've found that chronoing the shotgun whe
  2. I doubt it. I've slave-powered quite a few boxmags off 11.1V lipos without issue.
  3. I still play at Ballahack regularly, usually once every week or two. The airsoft scene here in Hampton Roads is excellent, so you won’t have any trouble finding a group that you like. Shoot me a PM if you want to meet up out there.
  4. I would steer well clear of any M240 out there, regardless of brand. While they're real lookers and great fun, the reliability just isn't there. Gearbox design isn't consistent between manufacturers, or even between batches from the same manufacturer. The box mags are also fussy, which is as important as the gearbox itself. Procurement and installation of repair/upgrade parts can be a real pain too, since so many models are discontinued. More details in my thread here: I've heard good things about the Lambda series of Mk48 LWMGs. Despite my personal distaste for the real thing (sh
  5. Wrapped up my VFC Avalon-based L119A2 build recently, complete with horrifying (but kit correct) Kryptek paintjob.
  6. My thoughts exactly. The delineation in the Saiga magazine between bb feed and gas supply gives me hope that this is TM's intent.
  7. One step closer to a GBB Benelli M1014. My body is ready, my wallet is not.
  8. There are some proprietary parts, but nothing that I would consider high-wear or failure-prone. The gearbox itself is literally a Cyma AK V3, which can be had for $60 all in.
  9. Hoo boy, this is a helluva necropost. I absolutely still recommend this gun, even though I sold it off nearly a decade ago. It's a solid piece of kit.
  10. I can help you troubleshoot the source of the leak, if you like. I haven’t had to fix any leaks of my own, but I’m intimately familiar with the potential sources.
  11. Addendum #3: Troubleshooting low muzzle velocity with my top-folder My previous addendum was incomplete, in that I failed to mention an ongoing issue with my second shotgun build. For some reason, I was unable to get the muzzle velocity to exceed 1J regardless of supplied pressure. The gun was functional, but not exceptional like my first shotgun build. A list of the possible culprits for my issue. The troubleshooting process took quite a bit of time, exacerbated by COVID-19 escalating my already demanding work schedule. I tried everything listed in th
  12. My gun wall is actually a retail display rack. I screwed the mount bases into studs in as many places as I could find. It's quite sturdy.
  13. Apologies for the double post. My editing window expired. @Skarclaw, here you go:
  14. It's less "WIP Mk48," more "stripped M249 with the wrong caliber of nutsack." I'll see if I can't snap a pic once I get off work.
  15.

I'll take the compliment, though! That poor G&P M249 is waiting on Mk48 parts from Killen Custom, which I ordered (and paid in full) December of last year. I'm not sure if it's a v
