    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    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.

    WE G3

    M14 has been such a sleeper hit. Not many people I know have it, and having worked on it there are too many flimsy parts to break. But yeah it is fairly accurate and heavy, but since I haven't used it in the ranges of temperatures we have here (0-30*C+), I can't tell you how fieldworthy it is. I have owned many VFCs (M4, MP5/SD/K, G36C/K, 416/417s) and owned many WEs (Thompson, MP5K ,M4, M733, M16A1, G36, SCAR L, SCAR H, AKM, Keltec PLR16), and everything I collect has to be somewhat authentic, but most importantly they have to be fieldable. Traditionally, VFCs are better wall hangers while WEs are better for skirmishing, but to be fair I would need to put both VFC and WE G3 through its paces.

    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    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

    WE G3

    It should be marketed as CETME rather than G3 with that horrid trigger guard. But hey, shouldn't judge a book by its cover, or can we? As for 7.62x51 GBBRs I think we have not evaluated enough of them to say. Currently we have: WE SCAR-H - My experience has been quite positive. Accuracy is good as is the recoil. Reliability and fieldability is similar to the SCAR-L. VFC HK417 - BDB's "Replica that so happens takes BBs" as a good description. In hot weather the gun kicks like a 556 rifle and prone to bolt bounce which leads to double feeds, cold weather it has problems cycling 15 rounds before it dies. VFC SR25 - Tested, cycling rate is far too sluggish for a GBBR even in warm weathers. So it would be good to finally test the VFC G3 and the WE G3 (if they can fix the CETME trigger guard)

    Yeah isn't it? How much more weight does the wood kit add to the silly light thompson?

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    Does anyone find that the WE G3 trigger guard to be a bit unsightly? It seems WE has copied the CETME rather than the H&K G3...

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    I have been waiting for the Mk3 slide so I can convert my WE m1935 into a mk3 dual tone

    Select fire conversion for M249

    I have used a number of MGs indoors, and it is definitely less manouvreable than a carbine/PDW/SMG, though not less than anything longer than an AK47. TBH anything is possible, the question is how flexible are your field rules to having an MG class rifle indoors event on semi-auto. TBH with speed triggers today, semi might as well be full auto. Putting a programmable mosfet seems to be the best way to go about creating select fire on the MGs.

    Select fire conversion for M249

    On a G&P M249 you might be able to get away with it with say a Gate Titan for V2, since it use a V2 mech. You could program a 2 stage trigger for a selector. Otherwise, other 249s might be a bit difficult.

    58th Shizuoka Hobby Show Tokyo Marui Products

    Have you been living under a rock? Chinese brands have innovated far past Marui ever has. Sure they are all based off the Marui gear set, but many have custom mechs. Lets take a few examples: - AGM MG42 - AGM MP40 - AGM MP44 - AGM STEN - JLS F2000 - JLS Beretta RX4 - CYMA CM048 (blowback) - Krytac Series - ARES SLR - ARES M249 - ARES M60 - ARES/S&T TAR21 - S&T PPSH41 - S&T Howa Type 64 - S&T Type 99 LMG - S&T ARX160 - APS UAR - AY AR57 - AY Spectre M4 - AY BAR M1918 - AY Beretta M12 - Snow wolf M1938 - WELL UZI - A&K PKM - A&K M60s And thats excluding Hong Kong and Taiwanese manufacturers who uses a lot of Chinese manufacture. I would say, your point is invalid. No doubt, Marui is innovative, but even they missed the market opportunity with the GBB M4s. Having continually repaired a number of marui's I would have to say that they do not perform/function long term as well as many other Chinese guns in environments requiring more than 1J . Most durable battle ready AEGs I have had are A&K MGs, particularly their PKM series.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Isn't it usually the other way round no? I converted a WE upper to a 9mm Pak once, with a modified inokatsu bolt head and bolt carrier, along with a modified VFC lower, it had some issues ejecting consistently but otherwise it cycled ok Good work though. There is a lack of forged lower receivers for the WE M16/XM systems. You COULD modify a vipertech lower instead. Though to be honest, isn't most modern receivers are now cast anyways?

    Walther PPK full auto problem

    The Chrome turd is basically a body kit for a Maruzen. In which case then it has all the problems of the Maruzen, basically it won't be able to take Green gas which severely affects ability to skirmish with it. The recoil is enough to snap slides which happens on both the Maruzen and the ACM. I had both, now the Chrome turd is a Maruzen sitting in a collectors box with a silencer and loaded with 134a, and has been in that box for the last 8 years. I ended up getting WE PMM, converted back to PM grips. It uses the PPK Serpa holster with some modification, so it becomes a very practical/fieldable sidearm.

    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    How have you made springs? They look very well made. I have wounded my own springs with an electric drill and a steel rod which the spring can coil around. I have tried to use a lathe but can't get it right.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    It started life as a 7" rail. I needed it to be around 4", so I cut it. As the the top of the rail at 4" would've been inbetween one of the side cuts, it would've been freely suspended and would snag on things, so I pruned it back, to create a more streamlined look. That is a WE HK416 lower and a M4 AWSS upper, with a custom cut and threaded 6" barrel, SVODA sliding stock, a MK43 flash hider, and a cut down MOE grip. Clocks in at 330fps, and has a metal on metal "buffer" inside the stock which basically means the user gets hearing damage using the gun. It is used mainly around vehicles and administrative roles. Weighs in at 2.5kg. The 7.5" PDW is a VFC M4 GBB with a Troy TRX rail, custom cut 7.5" barrel, MOE grip, and an HK PDW stock. it clocks in at a stupid 430fps. Weighs in at 2.3kg. The last one is a replica of the Olympic arms K23B, based on an ICS M4, a cut down madbull patriot kit, a G&P Stock tube with a custom M4A1 sliding stock converted to CAR15 profile. Weighs in at 2.3kg. Note to others: ICS receivers are NOT RS compatible barrel nut thread (i.e. on the madbull kit). OD of normal AR15 barrel thread is around 31mm, OD of an ICS receiver is closer to 32mm. It was a mission to get the threads/pitch to fit.
