  1. ....And that's why I have a mill and a lathe at home. SBRing stuff has never been easier. :) Hitting the big 40 in a few months, of more than half of that has been in airsoft. :P
  2. Seriously? In my country we have community accessible/shared machinery and tools. And then there are friends who work in workshops and would help out with odd jobs, and likewise we would all reciprocate if they need help. Its alu, which is far easier to work with than steel, so that would take hardly any time to do. But all the best though.
  3. WE dust covers are longer than the AK dust covers. WE does not make carbine length barrels and an AKS74U is far too short. However you can cut and thread with a lathe if you so desire, which is what I usually do. I was going to do the same thing: - shorten the barrel - use a AK104 front sight - cut back the rear sight block to allow handguard to sit in line with the grip. - use a krebs custom dust cover with rear mounted rear sight - mount an ultimak rail - use a Zhukov lengthened handguard which the front sight wraps around - shorten the ba
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Takes M4geries to another level! Looks good though.
  7. I have seen DH mods with CO2 capsules, but yes capsules take up space and are prone to cool down just as much as green gas. Any recommendations around whats a good gas injector unit working off a CO2 bottle? And how much more efficiency do you get out of a magazine (using say a GHK M4 as a base model). Depending on the price, the full sized UZI would make a great addition to my collection. For the last 12 years I have been running exclusively ol'school IDF shirt and pants, A11 ephrod, M16A1/CAR15 Mekutzrar/Galil ARM/MAG58/Mini UZI. Only thing I don't have
  8. I am a bit behind the times, I thought the DH mod was converting a GHK magazine to take CO2 capsule? Since the Mini UZI is already a CO2 gun, is the DH mod a bit defunct? Unless you are talking about modifying a standard green gas magazine to fill and use liquid CO2 via an injector adaptor for a CO2 bottle (not running a remote line).
  9. Actually I would rather have a green gas UZI. I already have a closed bolt KWC Mini UZI which annoys me a bit that it isn't skirmish practical. For most green gas GBBs one wants the ability to fire half a mag of BBs during an engagement, and then top up BBs and gas ready for the next engagement. But with CO2 you can't, as you have a partially gassed mag which won't fire the rest of the BBs if you go for a top up. Also CO2 mags only lasts at best 1.5 charge per mag and the overhanging bolt and spring tension isn't really that heavy. WE Thompsons, M4s and AKs have larger an
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.

  15. 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"
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Yeah isn't it? How much more weight does the wood kit add to the silly light thompson?
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
  23. 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 ve
