  1. Tokyo Marui PSG-1 with metal body

     

    Modified a metal G3 body to look like the PSG-1 body. It needs a little more work, but is mostly completed. I cut the rear sight off of the body and filled the hole using JB weld and then sanded it smooth, its not perfect but its a 5 foot looker and a lot better performer than the old creeky plastic body.

    Performance is stock, don't really feel like upgrading it as I probably will never use it other than hanging on the wall.

  2. Here is my latest toy, a Sun Project M4

    It has a steel bolt from AS4L, adjustable hop-up, and the start of a flat top, and maybe a few other small upgrades. It shoots pretty well now that I have everything tightened down and loktighted in place, pretty much like an AEG range wise but with killer sound and recoil.

    The rail is just a riser that was clamped on to the body after the carry handle was removed. I am not terribly fond of the look and will be re-doing the flat top mod a bit nicer. I really just want to convert it back to the A2 style body as I plan on using this with my IDF loadouts and the Israelis tend to use a lot more fixed carry handle weapons. I may do a real steel upper conversion just for ease of finding one.

     

    And here it is next to my other M4

    The AEG is based off of an Echo-1 Metal body and has all sorts of good stuff inside it that makes it a nice reliable AEG. Nothing extreme, I think it is shooting around 380 fps at a modest 15 or 17 RPS using a 7.4v lipo in the front hand guards. I cut the barrel just past the front of the sight and re-threaded it for the amplifier and it does make the gun sound meaner than it really is. The gun is a solid performer and makes a nice loaner gun, especially since I will now be using the Sun Project a lot more than the AEG's I own!

  3. Just picked this up on a trade, pretty cool little replica.

    I did have a problem arrise with mine, ended up shooting the outer barrel off after two shots. I dont know if anyone else has experienced this problem (Imagine they have) but the locator holes on the outer barrel ended up tearing out and allowed the recoil spring to shoot the barrel off when it fired. I guess that just means I get to buy some upgrades, might as well throw in a Guarder frame and slide set, oh darn :P

  4. Here is a picture of me from one of my local playing fields. I am using a JAC AUG, which was its first time in the field after some modification were completed. Too bad I did not have my M4 and hat on as it would have been a really cool picture of me using my IDF loadout. That and having my uniform tucked in would have been nice too... Still, its a pretty cool photo.

  5. My meager collection of SMG's

    img1783o.jpg

    From Top Left, Clockwise:

    Marushin UZI

    Marui UZI

    Maruzen VZ.61

    Hudsom M3 x2

    JAC UZI

     

    I kinda like UZI's...

    I want to pick up a few of the missing SMG's on the market, mostly a Maruzen MP5K and a mini-uzi, but these are all fun to play with for now


  6. Here is my latest purchase to reboot this thread

     

    A pair of Hudson GBB M3 Grease Guns. Pretty cool little pieces of work, not too terribly practical, but that seems to be the way my collection is headed. They do have an amazing amount of recoil and are much heavier than would be expected from a plastic bodied gun, which actually feels very nice. I had always wanted one of these when I first started airsofting but never bought it due to the mags being expensive and impractical for a new airsofter. I found a guy selling them as a pair with 4 magazines included and I had to act.

     

    Both work fine, but the one with the orange tip is missing the rear sight and the front barrel is cracked. The other is perfect as far as I can tell. Quite the happy buyer, but here are some pictures!

  7. Kit list is very simplistic, just basic Alice web gear and US Tri-Color BDU's, with an EBBanned tactical fleece and light jacket layered for cold. Belleville boots and a couple pair of wool socks round out the list

     

    The gun is the A&K M-60E4, Its a love hate relationship at the moment. Cant seem to get it to shoot faster than 400, despite my best efforts. Too many slightly off spec parts = pain in the butt to upgrade well

     

    The glasses are just my normal prescription glasses, I tested a number of goggles to see which would fit over them and the Flakjacks fit perfectly. I really should get contacts, but the glasses have worked well. I have only lost one pair of glasses, they were a spare set that had broken temples I used to tuck into the goggles nose bridge, but this set up has been working for three years now.


  8. Here is my contribution to this thread

     

    Maruzen VZ61. Skorpion with metal barrel (made by me) and suppressor (also made by me)

    And a bit closer

     

    skorpionwithsilencerclo.jpg

     

    And the barrel with 14mm CCW threads for the silencer to attach to, apologize for the slight out of focus-ness

    I like the look, but will have to make another silencer for this gun so I can still be able to use the folding stock. Enjoy


  9. Finally finished putting on the wood stock on my KA FAL. It was a rather simple process really, just cut the original stocks mounting block, cut the tang slot a little bit longer, and bored a hole for a Lipo- Stick battery to fit. The hardest part of the build was finding a screw that would fit, so I built my own.

     

    Modified a 5/16"x8" Carriage bolt by boring a hole and tapping it for a 10/32 screw, which then screws into the receiver. The screw runs through the original hole in the stock for mounting to the RS version, works like a charm!

    And all mounted up with the Israeli forguards. Since it was so easy to modify the stock I am probably going to pick up a blonde stock now so the Israeli grips match, then I will essentially have 3 guns in one, a modern(er) polymer stocked version, wood stocked, and Israeli FAl (minus the few slight differences the real Israeli FAls have from the FN versions)

     

    img0595g.jpg

     

    And with normal wood handgaurds

     

    img0597ua.jpg

     

    I love it, it feels great, looks great, and now it smells great too! I have a metal buttplate coming in the mail, hope it arrives soon, as it will be the final piece of the externals on this gun.

  10. Here are some pictures of my King Arms FAL with Israeli handguards installed. I am working on getting the wood stock on it too, but for now I just have the handguards. They took about an hour to trim and fit onto the gun, but the effort was well worth the trouble.
