    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Whelp, I am already nearing boredom and I got 2 more weeks of it due to company I work for deciding to close down on their own for 2 weeks (we fell in the "essential but also not" grey line area and bosses afraid of mass infection of a certain Beer Virus). I managed to damage an old dboys 74m receiver trying to do a khyber pass ak build (tried to mate a steel dboys akms front end to it and then change the stock to a triangle folding), so I had to transfer all the guts and front end to my old full stock ak74 set, with many hours frustration in finding I couldn't really wire it to the stock to run the 11.1v batteries I did have. Broke all my spare rear sight leafs in the process as well so I am waiting on a real deal one to hopefully not break. Don't even know if it shoots alright because it been raining constantly. Going to try and work out each day and play videogames in the meantime (animal crossing atm mostly), as I just don't want to really mess with my replicas much anymore (besides the aforementioned case). Tis a sad state of the world when one rather be at work than having time to themselves.

    LCT AK12

    Yeah, they've been the highlight at MOA and other shows late last year and this year (before all the cancellations). The RPK-16 replica is the short barrel "assault" version (who knows if anyone will bother with the full length version). LCT also been highlighting their 2020 gearbox update which for the most part is just qsc shell ignoring the ebb system (which they seem to be selling the qsc shells with first), alongside their zenitco replica parts. Having still so much bad luck with my older rpk nv model, I'm not inclined for the modern adaptation till someone delivers one that performs better.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    My package of bits arrived today, 3 sets of GATE duel signal wires, 3 BlueBox AK midcaps, and the damn sector delay chip I needed for my LCT RPK (my dumbass forgot to put one onto the shs gears I put into it). I managed to get the delayer in and everything back together, tested it with one of those midcaps, and it *fruitcage* works finally! Probably has *suitcase* air consistency now from so many times trying to get it fixed, and I am sure it still gets outperformed by the kiddos with their krytacs, but as a 40k Ork would say: "It's *fruitcage* DAKKA ya Git!" Tomorrow I get the Bizon rewired for a Gate Nanoasr setup like most of my collection is now (probably hold off on the ak104/5 because its inline mosfet wiring is not complete *suitcase* layout wise). Wish I had gotten those Silverback pouches for it when they came out years ago since they were discontinued and the only shop I know of that has some still supposedly is a shop in Canada that is domestic mostly and would cost a cyma to acquire them. Thinking of maybe water bottle pouches on a molle chest rig but not sure what kind doesn't look silly and would hold them tightly. "Mutters like an Ork for the rest of the night"

    If you elect to get one, the little "handyman" vice stands with the alligator clip hands tend to help out immensely, at least for me. I will be the first to say I am not that good at soldering myself, but with time I've become confident enough to be able to do it regularly. I will also say a side effect of learning to do it is that now you will want to rewire all the things (such as me planning on rewiring my bizon tommorow for GATE NANOASR mosfet instead of its current inline mosfet system that taking up too much space).

    See, I wish I could have Stunt's view imparted on my folks, as I keep telling them they don't need cable to watch what they want, but they too set in their ways.

    As much as I would be fine with just having the window up permanently, the folks think otherwise so it is off at some friend of my father who lives deep in the countryside to take a shot at it. Why it could not happen in the summertime instead of now only Murphy knows. Physical pain wise, having to pull multiple pallets today after my legs already shot from yesterday makes me a more sore lad.

    So, rough day of airsoft today. Weather *suitcase* as expected, had issues with folks shrugging off hits I positively identified, and various other frustrations (RPK still would not feed, bizon just would not run at all, pull off multiple flanks just for games to end or rules to change). Then to top it all off my car's rear right window just magically slides down middrive home with a horrible noise and now will not move at all, so there goes whatever tax refund I was going to get this year. Almost makes me feel like I was meant to spend my weekends at home playing video games only.

    Does "Space Belgium" also have good waffles? I had a rather *suitcasey* day at work but reading that brought a smile to my face, despite just finding out that Arnies forums is not on the player's choice awards list for best forum.

    Screenshot from Airsoft Alfonse's latest vid of me holding my nonfeeding RPK two weekends ago. Rebuilt the gearbox this weekend so hopefully I won't fail the Empire next time.

    Heck, if I was over there I'd give you my old kwa g36c to scavenge for parts.

    Speaking of tech issues, mine are still being a pain in the *albartroth*. Got some of the replicas all rewired, but the main kalash gearbox went to , likely the trigger shuttle and contacts as atm it goes off on its own. RPK gearbox got addressed and it is back together, but then I had to go and do a stupid: Opening up my RS svd and the gearbox itself. Despite how terrified I was it was actually easier to open than a v3. Waiting on a m140 spring that will probably not fit, too scared to try and aoe correct the piston and whatnot as spares do not exist anymore and no shop I usually deal with has sorbos in stock. I'm too *suitcase* with a dremel to mod a SR-25 piston, and then if I get it all working (also rewired it with gate wiring for nanoasr that is totally not too thick for the damn thing...) I have to decide if I want to *fruitcage* with the hop up and barrel and get a promy 650mm tightbore and modify hard bucking flat hop. Spent most of my weekend fiddling with all these and again I never want to but another replica again after seeing this *suitcase* (the svd doesn't even have the screw that is supposed to hold the hop up unit to the outer barrel apparently).

    Parts for the LCT RPK show up (original stock cylinder head and air nozzle because both of the originals broke long ago and the shs replacements might be why it doesn't feed), alongside the sentinel arms drum mag and GATE mosfet bits. Figure I'll start work on the LCT gearbox before I go out to eat with coworkers for one of their birthdays. One of the allen key screws for the gearbox is somehow stripped, the drum mag will not fit my ak100 series carbine and I suspect it won't fit the rpk well, and looking back I should have ordered more double signal wires than I had. Also supposed to have an ice storm that might cut power for a few days. Great start to the weekend.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Dreams of an empire yet fulfilled. Had a good day of airsoft today at the quite farther away field than usual. Much better than the previous weekend at said field. Got to meet a lot more old hands and roll with them most of the day. RPK worked but also not because no mag really fed with it, whether Cyma 45-rounder midcap, lct midcap, hicaps, anything really. I suspect it is the nozzle being too long or not moving back far enough (most if not everything has a shs nozzle of some sort, and looking into the hopup on both shows the RPK almost completely blocking the chamber compared to my oldest kalash when dry fire semi) which unfortunately means having to take it all apart again. Ran my oldest kalash for most of the day, which was interesting because in semi it occasionally (read as every 4-5 trigger pulls) wants to do a burst. Bizon sadly did not get any play, as the last game of the day amidst snow flurries I tried to run it but the 7.4v lipo either got cold or something internal did because it just wasn't having it (worked fine back at my car with the other stick lipo that was in the ak all day, both work fine now). Also I love GATE Nanoasr double signal wire setup ease and now I want to blow money on changing out all my ak and bizon mosfets to them now. HALP
  14. Sorry for the double post, but figured I might as well end this topic now. Ended up going for the mosfet inside the stock route, and whilst it may make battery placement a bit of a mess, it is far more smoother connection wise and there is so little wiring inside the receiver itself now. Works fine and my rpk feels alive again (though the gearbox will probably kaputt itself somehow first game I take it out to. Got a replacement screw for that front RSB screwhole that I had to have a buddy remove the original stripped screw from and it all feels secure and tight now. I think I am going to stick to these Gate Nanoasr mosfets now for future projects (got an ak74m gearbox that is still mosfetless and that SVD needs help badly). Overall a good day now.
  15. So, I am attempting yet again to rewire my accursed LCT RPK with a new motor, wiring, and a Gate NanoASR, but have come across a dilemma of where to place the mosfet. I had the previous mosfet on top of the gearbox, but as it was a one signal wire setup I ended up having too many wires (motor wires and mosfet's additional wire) trying to fit in the tiny little slot on the left side of the receiver to go back down towards the lower trunnion tang port and into the stock. I figure with the two signal wire setup for the NanoASR, I could keep it on top, and craft an extension piece of two wires from the battery input end of the mosfet back down the rear slot and out into the stock. This way I could disconnect the mosfet from the extension when need be and potentially make it easier for eventual maintenance compared to the other option. The other option of course is to run the signal wires along the usual gearbox plate tabs and down the slot and out, with the motor wires running straight out from the motor through the tang port, and have the mosfet inside the stock. I would have to disconnect the signal wire insert at the very least from the mosfet unit and try to pull it carefully back out the stock tang whenever I wanted to take the gearbox out. Positive would be the motor wires would not be stuck going up the left side in the very tight space between the receiver and gearbox, and would just have to take the motor contact tabs off. Negative is the length of the very fragile signal wire in this scenario The image below is what I am at for the first option at this time, with the red and black scrap wire demonstrating where the extension wires would be running. Signal wires are attached and I just have the excess bundled up for now since I didn't want to cut any of it off just yet (and if I go with the first option I might just keep it bundled in a secure way despite it making the signal length just as long as the second option). "Blue tape is just to hold motor wiring in place along the grip at this time, please ignore." Any advice on which option I should go for would be appreciated. This is my weekend project and if it succeeds I might be inspired enough to try and work on my ancient Real Sword SVD next.
