    GHK x Umarex Glock 17

    I have some doubts as to how much more efficient ghk's idea of using a rifle style bbu will be. Mostly because I did that same thing a few years back with my own pistol design, which has a thread in the projects forum here. (KPS-01 if anyone cares) I didn't do it on my design because it was super efficient, it was just easier to machine. And I suspect thats pretty much why ghk are doing it too. (Granted my design did have a separate block in the back because I wanted to use rectangle tubing). It did turn out to be a bit more hard kicking then the kwa 1911 that it used a magazine from, but it wasnt like, way more efficient. Mayyyybe you could get like 10 more shots per fill on a good day, so at least you could fire the whole mag unlike a normal kwa. But then again my design had a slide travel of over 2 inches which was a bit excessive. In either case I doubt that the ghk will be much better then the average tm clone, aside from external build. I've done a bunch more custom, from scratch builds since then and really I haven't noticed much difference between internal piston designs and external chamber designs in terms of efficiency or power. In fact I would say that longer rifle type external chamber designs tend to use more gas to operate and are best suited for guns that have longer bolt travel, because you need the extra push. So it wouldn't really work as good as an internal piston when you only need a short slide travel. Just my two cents though. Id actually like it if I were wrong and the ghk Glock is super efficient, cause then I could see what they did and reverse engineer it. Hah. I really should post some threads on my newer projects tho.

    Action Army Ruger MK IV GBB pistol

    .... Why does it take glock mags?

    Northeast Mini and full sized Uzi GBB

    I wonder if they'll make them compatible with kwc mags, or if they're going to design their own proprietary mag.
  4. When I need to ream out holes, I just use a drill bit tightened into a thread tap handle. The hole size you need is 1/4", which is the size of both real steal and WE takedown pins. Probably easier to source a drill bit that way then trying to find something in metric.

    9mm AR GBBR’s?

    I might still have some of the pictures floating around but i may have lost them when my older laptop died. Back when i did that build, all of it was done entirely by trial and error, so even if i had saved any of the dimensions, they would be of very little use. I had no idea how to use CAD at the time so there were no cad files, everything was just milled manually, and tweaked till it worked. As far as the front sight assembly, that was all built by hand ( well, on a mini mill ), but i had found the schematics of it on google image search, from a thread on ar15.com iirc, so the dimensions for that should be available if you look through the image results. I have been meaning to make another one at some point though, And since i do now have a 3d printer, I would probably try printing a lot of the parts. Though some of them do have to be metal, like the feed ramp and loading nozzle arm i think would break pretty easy if they were PLA plastic. so they would have to be metal at least in some part., And the extended valve striker really has to be steel or it'll get mangled, even the aluminum ones i tried at first didnt survive long. If and when i get to try making a new one, my plan was to make a flat top upper version. And for that, the easiest thing to use would be the upper from a WE T91 since it has no deflecter or forward assist. So, its pretty likely that I'll be making another, i just dont know when, especially since i have an ongoing project at the moment.

    Interesting in that the shells look a lot like the ones used for the wingun Nagant 1895. Also interesting in that it seems like they'll go far and wide to make models that aren't normal S&W style revolvers.

    9mm AR GBBR’s?

    I had converted a WE GBB M4 to take KWC C02 Uzi mags a year or two back in order to make a Colt DOE clone. So, it can be done but needs all sorts of modified internals to do it, a new loading nozzle, as well as magazine well adapters and feed ramp extensions. It probably wouldn't be too different to do the same thing for mp9 mags, so long as they physically fit in the mag well width wise. I have a build thread about it on the forums here somewhere, but either I can't find it, or it disappeared somehow. I do have a video of it on YouTube though. And it really does kick as much as it looks, the co2 really throws the bolt around.

    Is there ANY shotshow news?

    Elite force had an r8 revolver that nobody mentioned for more then a half second, despite it being the only interesting thing there.

    WE Hudson H9

    Evike has also shown an 'EMG' Hudson h9. I wonder if it's the same WE OEM, or if there's another company out there making one as well.

    Finally finished the OA93. Woo. I even did another video to show it working.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Its not quite finished yet, but I'm doing a WE based Olympic Arms OA93. Once i have it all done i think i'll make a proper thread for it, but i think its looking pretty good so far. Alot of planning, machining and testing went it to making it work properly..

    I could never convince myself to buy a vfc gas blowback again after the mp5, and im imagining that the g3 will have similar jamming issues like that did. But dang if vfc doesnt know how to make a gorgeous looking gun. I keep my vfc mp5s around just because of how pretty they are.

    WE G3

    A clean desk is a sign of someone who doesn't do any work.

    WE G3

    well, according to their facebook page, they produced steel molds for other companies. Which means they were probably doing the casting as well. so it wouldnt be too surprising if they had been the oem for some other airsoft manufacturers.

    WE G3

    Youre comparing a finished lct to a prototype WE? In that case the WE weld actually looks to be the better one. its relatively clean, even though they havent even dressed or painted over it. The LCT one on the other hand looks kinda nasty and jagged, and thats on the finished, painted product, as you would buy it. thats not to say that the production WEs wont have bad welding. But that lct weld is pretty .
