    VFC MP7 AEG looks closer and closer

    Should be a tad cheaper ordering from Taiwan (like KIC), not bad.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    I'm always a bit torn with putting steel everything on AEGs, especially ARs, because in my case (especially with next-gen recoils), they end up weighing heavier than the real thing with a loaded mag, which for me is a bigger sin than being too light, GBBR's most definitely, but with the gearbox and recoil weight, it ends up being too beefy before putting all the tactical christmas tree decoration on.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    This is something that has been very long in the making, thanks to Jim of LCs Engineering for performing the black magic. KWA ERG AK74 surgically transplanted into a E&L Steel body, everything you see externally is from the steel kit, only internals of the ERG was used, it was far from a drop in conversion but after the work, most things are now AEG standardised so parts can still be switched out, has a Tula 10000 rail fixed to the (spare) dust cover, with a PK-06 on top. This has a mild recoil sensation, I'd say similar to TM gen 1 recoil (Think TM recoil AK or G36, weaker than TM SOPMOD), has stop on empty, and requires charging of the bolt to reactivate upon putting in a fresh mag. Accompanying the AK74M is a Ghost Island full steel Makarov PMM with rs Bakelite grip.

    Nah, I haven't, wonder how they would compare on green.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    I've had two now, the original W&S kit which works for normal GHK bolt, and this one which comes with everything you need. I've only been to one game with the older W&S full travel kit and it works well enough for me to run through a whole day on green gas, it wasn't winter though so average temp was around 12°. This kicks noticeable harder than what I originally had on, with the Hephaestus heavy recoil kit, the bolt carrier with gas piston weighed 345g (I don't have the original gas piston lying around anymore to weigh that combination), this full steel bolt carrier with piston weighs 439g (both with nozzle). I would definitely recommend either using Guarder black gas or DH for the full experience in colder weather, given that if you're getting the full travel kit you're after that extra bit of realism anyway. When I tested this on a DH mag, the kick is really great, I will try to get it on video to maybe compare the gas types.

    Same GHK gun but with the latest W&S full travel one piece steel bolt carrier installed, it has a few updates, includes a more realistic recoil spring, and the bolt is fully captive with the spring in place so it won't "jump out" of the receiver rails causing damage to either receiver or bolt carrier. For those wondering what this monstrosity is, I've been playing too much Escape from Tarkov.

    VFC MP7 AEG looks closer and closer

    Damn, I was expecting Scorpion Evo 3 price at most, it's even more than that, looks like I'll be looking to see if it could be (a lot) cheaper buying direct from Taiwan.. That said, given that this is a new gearbox design, with in built mosfet, with new magazines design and stop on empty... I think it's fair enough if we don't compare it to the prices we're used to seeing from other existing MP7, but to look at it as a new gun entirely, which it sort of is.

    TM next-gen 416D converted to 416C, battery in RVG Grip (7.4v 1000 mah), VFC 416C Handguard with modded Z-Part steel barrel and gas block front sight. You did... what? Remington RAHG for VFC, full marking by RunInWorkshop, integrated TM tracer, no gas block / mock piston installed for easy battery access, can take larger batteries in handguard too. Tracer timed as such so you can turn it off / on through the bottom of the handguard.

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    This might not necessarily apply but someone's WE M4 mag exploded inside a car from being left in the sun filled with green gas, resulted in a damaged windscreen, there was a video of it on YouTube if I recall correctly. The question is, how much stronger is the MP5 mags? Also, how does the pressure of CO2, 850psi in room temperature, compared to propane under the sun? At 70c°, which is pretty hot, the pressure is only 360 PSI, less than half of CO2, probably similar to what's inside a hot car yet a WE mag exploded, so I wouldn't want to bet my fingers on this, but if you have facility to safely test the failure point of this magazine, like how Devilhunter had hydro tested his experiments, then sure, but I certainly wouldn't just "go for it" and see what happens... You could argue solid piece is actually worse, three piece design means there are weak points at the join, perhaps resulting in bulging in the joints (thus relatively safe leak), where as a solid piece only has one way to fail if the valve doesn't first.

    Oh 💩, I saw the chrono and immediately assumed that was in meters, so like 390 fps, it was so low res I didn't look properly, is it actually 120 fps?! Yeah the first thing I thought about was 3D printing disposable shells, although PLA isn't biodegradable and the only thing that is for your average home printer is PVA, which is quite expensive compared to PLA.

    It started off as a rear wire SOPMOD, and just realised I've now owned this gun for 10 years... it's gone through loads of different looks, as for the M16, the buffer tube, recoil weight and barrel made / modded by LCs Engineering, handguard is a real one which I picked up for £20 from eBay.

    Delta P Brevis III MP7 Suppressor

    *Oh nope, massively brain fart, you're right, it's 12 x 1mm LH, somehow thought it was 0.5 when I was posting, I'd modelled it as 12 x 1 as well..! Let's see if I can find helicoil in this thread!

    Delta P Brevis III MP7 Suppressor

    Yeah it makes no sense, although mind you I don't have the stock WE barrel but a steel barrel set with FH, but it would be really weird to change the thread in a 3rd party kit, don't have the original outer barrel to hand anymore to check!
