  1. I have lightened my recoil spring on my Steyr to 80%, seems fine. But yeah it does depend on your internal friction. RS Steyrs by design are pretty bad when it comes to managing friction, so they are both overgassed, and over sprung. The GHK is actually much better when it comes to that, as it has a nearly contactless bolt carrier to the receiver, and the hammer springs are rather light. In terms of accuracy, I modified the hop unit so it would fit a modified VSR hop rubber, on its AEG barrel, which I modified to fit the VSR hop rubber. That seems to work fine, and saves me buy
  2. Quite simple solution to the R-hop/flat hop issue: Lighten the recoil spring so the BB doesn't get thrusted into the chamber at high velocity leading to inconsistent seating. Nice work on the bipod, though my biggest concern is the barrel rigidity. The GHK stock barrels were just aluminium so it already has rather dubious rigidity, and now the bipod is there. Even on the real steyrs, the weight of an M203 unit is often enough to shift the zero of the rifle. I would probably use a steel barrel and then use an alu barrel extension. Threads won't do so the best way is
  3. Takes M4geries to another level! Looks good though.
  4. I got bored yesterday, watching "White house down", and I thought "Wouldn't it be nice to have an APC9..." I present, the "FN APC556 K" Features: - WE SCAR L base gun. - non-reciprocating charging handle - B&T side folder - 6.5" barrel, with a FPS of 380 on 0.2g
  5. I find that the BBS structure of forums allow for better navigation of themes and discussions than Social Media based Group UI. As for airsofting, some of us have been in this hobby for 20-25 years. I remember my first skirmish in 1994. The thing is, learning and growth in airsoft gets to a particularly point and then the challenge curve reaches a plateau. You can get proficient at weapon-tech, individual fieldcraft, and then build a good section/squad. But to build beyond that size of organisation for anything more epic, requires doctrine, training, military mindse
  6. While its a solid engineering feat, I can see that without a firing pin delayer the gun will have seriously weaker recoil compared with other models, particularly on auto. I would suggest looking at fitting a GHK firing pin assembly onto the hammer (GHK hammers are attached to their firing pins), as they work on a cam system and works as a built in delayer. Otherwise, good effort! With all the weebs liking all the HSLD AR setups, it is great to finally meet a man of culture
  7. Why is that you don't trim the scope mount depth instead? Better than modifying something thats replaceable than something that is hard to source.

  9. The Original .50 Desert Eagle scope mounts are not 20mm weavers. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thedeserteagle/scope-mounting-woes-t4592.html Marui sells specific Desert Eagle scope mounts back in the day... But yeah I got mine. Chrome plated hammer+trigger w/silver ceramic finish on the slide. - Its heavy, clunky, but still a little bit lighter than the .44 Desert Eagle I fired, but overall its fun. Feels on par with Guarder DE kit. - Accuracy is good stock, with modified hop rubber it is even better. - FPS is pretty standard for a 6"
  10. Nevermind, figured it out now. Slide rails are two piece of metal thats screwed and pinned onto the pot metal BBU. Normally these slide rails are casted onto a slide but in the case of the FN 5-7 it is a part of the BBU. One of the slide rails had already snapped the pin thats on the BBU. So I proceeded to glue the rails onto the BBU with Liquid Nails construction adhesive.
  11. Necropost, but can someone elaborate what is a "slide rail" coming away from the BBU? I bought an old broken 5-7, and I had already taken apart the blowback unit out of the slide, and aside from the blowback nozzle not moving in the BBU smoothly which I fixed, everything seems to be working ok. I am looking to do preventative mods to it to keep it going for the foreseeable future as it is a fantastic gun out of so many pistols I have already owned. I have even lathed down the hop unit, and added a rubber buffer there to prevent the inner slide from fractu
  12. Thats the thing, the experience feels like a video game if the realistic weight isn't there. I am not advocating guns which are heavier than real steel, but at least close to the real steel, so part of the experience is figuring out its trade-offs and quirks. I might go steel barrel and wood kit, after buckets of 20 round mags, for the jungle warfare feel.
  13. Darn still 1.5kg lighter than the real deal. The wood does look amazing though. My M1A1 has to fight for attention between my M1 Carbine, and STG44
  14. Yeah isn't it? How much more weight does the wood kit add to the silly light thompson?
