  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. Would love to get the P7M13 as a Marui GBB. I think there is a distinction between the older generation of Marui GBBs and the newer generations. I have had most of the older generations: G17/G18/G34/G26 P226 92FS Old type/New Type Hicapa 5.1/4.3 1911/MEU/Detonics Desert Eagle 5-7 There are some cross overs which I haven't owned such as the PX4 and XDM, and M&P9 Whereas I have only played with the newtypes: FNX-45, USP, HK45, and G19. The Glock 19 so far is the most impressive out of their line, with great weig
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. This is the review section no?
  8. Having used a number of Steyr AUGs, airsoft and real steel, my advice would be: - Try keep the weight of the weapon down. A 20" Steyr AUG A1 will load up to around 4.2kg, while a 16" will load up to around 3.8kg. So having a lengthened RIS is dead weight and also affects your ability to field strip or to keep the rifle clean. - AEG Steyrs have a number of disabling flaws, one of which is a long barrel supported by a pivot of the barrel trunion, and a plastic inside outer barrel. Chopping the barrel down will minimise this issue of having the outer barrel flop or being bange
  9. As far as I can tell the WE grips are compatible with the marui as well as the KJW. However the WE grips, like the Marui are far larger than RS sizing. KJW however are actually the closest while KWA is actually smaller. I have never removed the WE E2 style grip panels. I imagine it would be similar to the Marui version.
  10. This is how we used to mount the PEQ-2s. Australians have different mounts also.
  11. I still have these WE pistols: IMI Desert Eagle Beretta M9 gen2 Chrome Beretta M84 Chrome SIG P228 SIG M17/M18 Walther P38 Chrome TT33 Tokarev Chrome PM Makarov Luger Mauser M712 Glock 23F with engraved slide + standard Gen3 lower 6" Hicapa In outdoor games where I run around a bit, I carry a Makarov, because it fits in a standard magazine pouch and doesn't have a thumb magazine release. However, equally I have carried the M84, P228, M18, etc. All fairly similar in performance though my favorite is the M84.
  12. Takes M4geries to another level! Looks good though.
  13. Beretta 92s are usually out. Both RS and airsoft trigger return spring breaks and KSC/KWA models replicate the locking block breakage on the real one However they do take a beating and keep ticking. Dropped my marui, WEs and KSC/KWA in sand and dirt and used them for many years. SIG are ok, KSC SIGs FCG are made of monkey metal and the return rate to factory of those are really high, though the SIG Pros are better. Maruis are good, WEs depends on age as the magazine catch wears out OR the magazine wears out (I have a 12 year old WE 228). Some have fractured disassembly latches fro
  14. 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
  15. 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).
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Having a spare pinion is a must particularly if the grub screw is worn. I have a modified pinion remover that works on D-shaped motor shafts as well as round motor shafts, but if all else fails you may have to cut the pinion out with a dremel. I find that different manufacturers use different pinion gear and bevel gear sizing and teeth shape. Having a mismatch results in a grinding noises in the gear. I often modify motor shaft lengths to fit. Some guns like the JP FAMAS or SIG 55x have custom motor lengths and if you want to put a good Lonex or SHS into the rifle you will
  20. Ouch. I shall retire to my Trusty plastic welding tool.
  21. It comes from a Madbull Patriot kit. Mines the long foregrip which was shortened, which was what I had at the time. The Short foregrip version would be more authentic. Then as you pointed out, is the problem with the pitch. Madbulls work on RS pitch, while ICS is on original Marui Pitch which is thicker by a mm overall for both ID/OD. Takes a bit of effort to deepen the grooves with dremel and cutting disc. The barrel is actually custom made also to achieve the effect. Its great having a lathe at home.
