    WE New SMG ?

    Its not a Glock mag but its made to look like one. Its got a flatter top angle and different valve placement. *Probably* a catch cutout in the back side as well. too bad they didn't go with an uzi style mag instead. And then go ahead and make an uzi too.

    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.

    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.

    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..

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    Looks like they copied the buffer out of the ghk ak's. Probably not a bad idea. I imagine it saves the pot metal parts from shattering.

    APS CAM870 Impressions

    Man. Im really sad to hear that the APS shells are going the way of the dodo. I pretty much learned to machine making different guns that fired those things. Ive started making regular GBBs now but I had planned for my next design to be a semi automatic APS. Hell, I even bothered to sit down and draw a schematic for it which I almost never do. Kinda seems pointless if the shells are going to be discontinued though. I mean, I guess I could design it around PPS shells but they hold so few BBs comparatively. Well, there goes that I guess. Edit: I might still make one more APS launcher as a send off I guess. Ive wanted to make an underslung launcher for a while now. seems like as good a time as any.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Dunno where else I would put this so I figure this thread is the best place. Heres a shooting demonstration for the final version of my WE M4 kwc uzi mag conversion. A Colt DOE carbine. still essntially the same as the old 9mm build but much shorter, and with some tweaked intnerals that work a lot better. The only thing I may consider doing now is making a BCG from 7075 aluminum to see if I can get more gas efficientcy out of it. right now its only slightly more efficient then the KWC uzi is. It can get about a mag and a half from one c02 capsule.

    Review: ASG Dan Wesson 715 revolver

    Wow, it's really a shame they ruined the new 4" model with the world's ugliest rail. I would have bought a 4" even though I own 2 of the 6" models. That rail is really atrocious. It doesn't fit the shape of the barrel at all.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    So, heres the final destination of my WE to KWC mag conversion. It took a long time but I finally built a gas blowback Colt 633 "DOE carbine" aka Briefcase model. Due to a slight mishap with underestimating the thickness of the paint, the current barrel is unpainted, but will be once it stops snowing. the paint had to be removed to fit it and now i have to turn it down just slightly so it works with the paint. Unfortunately the paint also takes a week to cure and i am the least patient man in the world. So unpainted steel barrel it is! Im really glad to have gotten this build done (Aside from the unpainted barrel) . it was a whole mess of measuring and machining, trial and error, and all sorts of swearing and the like. But i think after this I have a way better understanding of the guts of a gas blowback system. Just like the previous 635 iteration of this build, the 633 build uses a kwc mini uzi mag. im considering cutting up one of the mags i destroyed in testing and brazing it to the bottom of another to get the "correct" 30 round mag length. Edit: I also forgot to change out the flat A1 delta ring for a tapered A2 delta ring. one is in the mail.

    SIG Picture Thread

    KWA m226 PTP with a slide I customized with forward slide serrations and had cerakoted. Unfortunately the kwa markings are so faint to begin with that they were almost entirely filled in, but whatever. There used to be a model like this on Sigs website but I can't seem to find it on there anymore unfortunately. And now I can't remember what it was supposed to mimic, other then that there was a P226 offered in this configuration as of early last year. Maybe someone remembes what it is. In the picture the serrations look a bit off angke cause of how I was holding my phone, but in person they are spot on.
