  1. Very nice. What barrels and front sights are you using? That old grey shaed looks awesome.
  2. Almost half price of Marui's offering, so... yeah: If you wanna own this ugly monstrosity, save yourself some money.
  3. Guigeand, excellent post. OP, I suggest that you take your time and sift through this thread: http://www.france-airsoft.fr/forum/index.php?showtopic=101482&st=15960 I cannot tell you exactly what page 8sorry, it's over 800 pages long9, but there's a guy who even has original hardcore gear, like period correct NVGs and radios. IMO, that level of detail is overkill. Most of the stuff is unobtainable nowadays.

    WE New SMG ?

  5. https://gunmallhk.com/index.php I just discovered this store: they have incredible prices, some items are priced closer to wholesale than to retail. The site, while not great, has its own product pictures, which is a good sign, since they took the time to do that, instead of cloning another website or using someone else's pictures. However, they only mention local shipping or pickup, which leads me to believe they could indeed be wholesale for local stores. I will send them an email. In the meantime, if anyone has any info on them, I'd like to hear it. Cheers

    Custom Gear

    In anticipation of receiving my TMC Safariland 63DO replica, I decided to update this old copy of a Safariland USP+Flashlight holster with some Gunskin and a QLS. Can't quite get the colours right on my phone, but it is very nice in person. If you have real multicam, though, it will probably not match it. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32824505177.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.274263c0WVscOs https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32902003871.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.274263c0WVscOs

  9. Has anyone tried this in AEG form? HK416 upper on M4 lower (the picture is a real gun, apparently Delta/CAG did this in the very beginning before adopting full HK's). I have tried different combos and so far E&C upper and lower has the best fit, but unvariably the upper is a couple milimeters longer, so that the front holes for the receiver pins dont line up. So much so, that a good filing doesn't remedy the situation. I'd have to dremel either the lower or the upper to a point in which the tangs would be very thin on one side and I fear they could break. Also, does anyone know o
  10. Yeah, I absolutely agree. Why scold a guy for asking questions in an otherwise pretty dead thread? Hard to say if they are any good, as it is unclear what brand Double Bell actually is: at first I thought it was the old Bell, which made pretty bad GBBP's 10 years ago. But now a series of Dboys AEG's have popped up under the brand Double Bell (same initials, BTW: DB). https://www.taiwangun.com/en/double-bell http://www.bbgunzerker.com/search?q=double+bell So, sadly: no clue if they are any good. Also, can you purchase from Thai shops, do they ship outside of Thailand?
  11. Problem solved: the Star stock tube actually has normal dimensions (AEG dimensions), it's just that the part where the round tube and the square thing along the bottom meet is rounded and not at a right angle, so Star profile stocks work on regular stock tube, but not viceversa. PPS stock tube for the XM26 work flawlessly and are cheap: https://airsoft.tiger111hk.com/p40603/PPS-XM26-Pump-Action-Shotgun-Stock-tube-(Parts-No-86)/product_info.html
  12. Since holsters for the FNX-45 are hard and/or expensive to get, I decided to try a chinese made Safariland for Glock 17 and it worked pretty well. You only need to cock the pistol to clear space for the hood safety (and remove the lip on the hood safety); and engage the safety lever on the gun, so it goes in more smoothly. I also dremelled out a little of the interior for the safety levers on both sides. You only need to take out very little and is visible from the outside. All in all, 10 minutes of work. I would not try this with a real Safariland holster, since those are much,
  13. Question Time! I recently purchased a Star (now Ares) M4 MRE. Beatiful gun, but with a problem: the stock tube is thicker than regular AEG stocks. Since I want to make a old-school CAG M4 and I cant find an old-school 4-position M4 stock made by Star/Ares. Sooo... does anyone know a Star type stock tube (the ones that screw directly into the body like a RS AR15) that takes regular AEG stocks?
  14. Could even be an SP5K, that I've seen around. I don't know that much about guns. I just mentioned SP89 since that is the most common civilian MP5K-style pistol in the US. Thanks for the tip, but I have that colour (I have most 94 colours that might be usable for camo) as it's not close. This is some type of metallised tan, or dulled gold paint. I'll keep looking for suitable candidates.
  15. I was wondering if someone could help me source a colour: the one on the upper of the MP5 (more pictures here). I know that the paint on the lower and the magazine is RAL 8000, but the custom shop that made these MP5 (or SP89or whatever) names it as Duracoat Pewter SL, but from what I can see on Duracoat's catalogue, that paint is grey-silver, not tan-gold. Either way, Duracoat is stupidly expensive to get into Spain, so I am trying to source a regular spray can in a similar colour. So far, Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Pure Gold seems to get the closest (see below, the pot on t
  16. Thanks, mate. I finally got the King Arms version of the sling attachment from ZeroOneAirsoft. 9 pounds, but 17 pounds of shipping to Spain... In regards to the CVL: any chance you could take meassurements of it? The basic shape is quite simple: a square with a cilinder on each side. Hopefullly a friend can design and 3D print t for me. And as to the small parts, such as the adjustment knobs, rail mount, battery cover, etc., I recon I can find them in my spare parts box, from old cheap PEQs. I could then use spare stickers from one of those PEQs or even print my own.
  17. Hey, guys! Im working on a couple of "old school" M4s and have really set my mind to getting these two stupid accesories, that are out of stock everywhere. If anyone knows where to get either of them, Id really appreciate it, second hand is fine also. G&G CVL (wouldn't mind a dummy or 3D print) Big Dragon/Building Fire/G&P KAC sling swivel adapter for old style AR15 stocks.
  18. Does anyone have a link to a guide on how to convert RS G3 magazines to AEG? I just got a couple waffle type mags and really want to use them on my A3, but I can't find a guide with pictures.

    M14 Picture Thread

    Internally, yeah. Externally, I might just have gotten a lemnon, but mine came with a broken grip, which I was able to repair, but I lost a nice chunk of wood. In any case, the grip/motor area is very thin and prone to breaking. My G&G M14 Veteran has solved this by making the are thicker, at the cost of losing a bit of the RS look. Also, the wood is cheap and ugly as hell, it's foing to take some skill to make it look like "serious" wood. God knows I tried.
  20. AOR1 done with Montana 94 and Krylon Sand (base color), using these stencils: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Pack-Digital-Camo-Vinyl-Airbrush-Stencil-Kit-HUGE-24-x-26-Camouflage-/191060724036?hash=item2c7c1b4944 Was not happy with the result. If you pay attention, you'll notice that the pixels are all over the place, while in actual AOR they tend to cluster: areas with a lot of 3rd and/or 4th, and areas which are clean. I have since painted the gun in AOR2 and I am now much happier with it.
  21. Love it! What's the camo on the pants? Vegetatto?
  22. Would have been better with tactical sandals, TBH.

    M14 Picture Thread

    I am an idiot: turns out you open the battery compartment simply buy sliding and then pulling the whole stock end out.

    M14 Picture Thread

    Because I only want to paint the stock and heatshield. Also, Im getting markings engraved, so the gun needs yo be disassebled either way. This is my project: I might paint it OD first, since I already bought a G&P Brown heatshield.
