    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.

    Chiappa Firearms Rhino

    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.

    K-SMG 2 Project build thread

    So.. youre suggesting i turn it into a tube with AR furniture on it?
  7. I meant to make this thread a while ago, back in May to be specific, When i first got this into a semi-working state. But as seems to happen, i got frustrated with it for one reason or another, and put it aside to come back to later. This project has been a long time in coming and has changed completely from the beginning till now. its also the first gbb I've made that doesnt use a single part that i didnt machine, other then the kwc magazine. The original name for this project was the 'Schrott pistole' Or basically scrap pistol, and the idea was to make an airsoft pistol out of bits and pieces i had left from other experiments. It was to look something along the lines of the 'lo-life' pistol from Metro 2034, basically a really crude Mauser 712 style pistol. It would be Semi automatic only, though open bolt, so the semi auto functionality was built directly into the trigger engagement, without the need to have a separately actuated disconnector. But the more i worked on it, the bigger it got, and i decided to make it into something more akin to a kg9, along with full auto fire. The originally square receiver was changed to a cylindrical type, and i decided it would be an smg instead, it just made more sense. This is a video from back in may showing how it looked then, though it was missing any sort of barrel so the BB's were just spraying out the end as the loading nozzle pushed them out of the magazine. You can see how it only fires single shots and full auto fire requires causing a deliberate malfunction, basically jamming your finger into the gap next to the trigger so it never resets. originally that was an intended feature. I had been very slowly working on the design but really didnt like it anymore. i had made a really short barrel and hopup unit but it was incredibly prone to jamming in all but the best scenarios, and on top of it, it was hideous looking. I shelved it and worked on some other projects for a few months, Like the WE based OA93 that id been working on at the same time, and shower shells for orion flare guns. Fast forward to early September, Ive finished some of those other projects and i want to work on something else. I figured well heck, ive got this ugly half finished smg to work on, might as well do something with that. I decided that it needed a more standard grip, so the bottom of the receiver was hacksawed off, and modified for the wooden ar style grip i had made for the older ferret smg. It already looked sort of like a sten with the barrel shroud and its open bolt already, so i gave it a safety catch Like a sten or mp40. it needed a stock too, so i made one out of the same oak the pistol grip was made of. It didnt really need it to be compact either since id already made the ferret to be compact, so i figured why not give it a longer barrel? Then i noticed how much it looked like a thompson. So i cut the sides of the receiver flat to go with that look too.Then i figured i might as well make it select fire, because the thompson was that way. This is an issue thats been plaguing me. since it was designed to be semi auto only, i had to basically break it to be full auto, and then add a switch to act as a disconnector. it doesnt quite work right yet, and it has a tendency to force itself into full auto. It literally flips itself into full auto. So Im still working on that. But after all that, if anyone is still reading, here it is. The K-smg2 in its current form, and almost sort of working! though not. i wouldnt take it to a field yet. it reallllllly likes to put itself into full auto. aside from fixing that whole 'it goes into full auto by itself' thing, i also need to actually make sights. the bases are there but theres nothing in them. no apertures or anything. theres also some other parts i want to make, like a vertical forward grip and button disconnect for the stock. maybe even a sliding stock as an alternative to the wood. Its kind of up in the air for now. So Im open to suggestions on how to finish this Sten/thompson *bramston pickle*-child off, aside from actually fixing the obvious flaws.

    Revolver Picture Thread

    The checkering didnt come out perfect, but for my second attempt i think theyre great. The gunline beginner's set i bought only came with four tools and theyre not enough to do anything too complicated. So the borders are a bit gnarly, i had to do the corners with a sharp screwdriver. I might pick up a couple additional tools soon.

    Revolver Picture Thread

    Here is my Dan Wesson 715 with my own hand made wooden grips, I patterned them like a s&w m29 like some of the older dan wesson grips. Theyre made of common american walnut, and are the second time ive tried checkering by hand.

    WE/Armorer Works Drum Mag

    Seems like it'll make some interesting builds, but i kinda wonder why they chose to make it look like a battery pack for a cordless drill. Maybe there will be different colors though.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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..

    GHK SIG SG 552 GBBR

    Ugh. I think $650 is a bit too much for me. Too bad its not just a factory WE design. I could have convinced myself to part with $350 or so. I dont rcall how much the original svd was. Ah well.

    GHK SIG SG 552 GBBR

    While im still pretty excited about the 553, that SVU in the redwolf video was pretty nice as well. Looks like a WE, Which is fine i suppose. The WE SVD was decent enough.

    VFC G3 GBBR

    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.
