    TM NGRS G36KA2 turned into a Garand Thumb G36C, part list: 

    - CA G36 Knight's Armament sight rail, chopped down

    - VFC G36 RAS for GBBR

    - VFC G36C FH

    - Manta Defence rail cover

    - Magpul AFG2

    - WE IDZ stock

    - Mystery G36C grip with symbol marking over the S/E/F of the G36K

    - G36 PMAG


    A few 3D printed parts, as this is an AEG, there's a huge gap between the handguard and the body after the VFC rail was installed, so I had to print a piece and fill it with Milliput. A hole is also visible through the secondary bolt position for security the barrel, so this has been filled by a printed hexagonal piece, which is then filled and sanded. 

    A mock G36 - AR magwell was designed based on the one used in the video, the original plan was to make a magwell adapter to work with NGRS M4 mags, but upon starting it I realise there's a lot of alignment issues that will take some time to resolve, so for now this just takes G36 pmags (which visually is pretty close to the PMAGs he used in the video anyway). 

    The pin retainer for the adjustment positions in the WE stock also snapped off during handling, so had to print a reinforced version, file available here if anyone ever snaps theirs. 

    Body finish is still WIP, some of the Milliput mark are still quite visible, I also filled in the toy marking on the receiver, will eventually have this painted properly, probably cerakoted once everything is sanded flat.

  2. I buy the units directly from Volante in Korea, he ships worldwide. The G34 (black) hasn't had many rounds through so it wouldn't be a meaningful indication, however, the TTI style one as seen in the video has had many more, close to a thousand if not more given it's the go-to for the IPSC style shooting I do until recently, this slide made by Trigger Happy has slightly different fitting to normal Guarder slide so I suspect the barrel / slide contact is not the same as the Guarder ones, the TiN coating has worn / chipped at the corner where they meet, but otherwise it's held up well, there's zero wear further down the barrel near the muzzle / slide contact. 

    I'm also using real sights for both the G34s, while Guarder advertise them to take RS sights, they actually don't, not without different modifications, the cuts are wider than the real ones so you'd have to either pack them out with materials (aluminium sheets or card), or in case of the TTI slide, which uses traditional TM design so I used an imperial countersunk screw to pull the rs sight down from under the BBU at the hole designed for grub screw. As for price of rs sights, you can get a set of steel made fibre optic sights for Glock (the one seen on the Guarder black slide) from Amazon UK for £26. Feel free to PM me if you want more specific info for your builds etc.

    I've tried various recoil springs, BBUs, gas etc but I've never been able to get the pistol to function correctly due to the weight of the slide, does the Volante BBU solve this issue?

    I own a steel G23, G26, G17 and G34 with two slides (TTI style and Guarder G34 as per that picture), they all have Volante unit installed. I only have a video of the G34 with TTI steel slide at hand, but it should answer your question. 

  4. Very much so, to a point where I use them at an IPSC airsoft club often and do fine alongside people using short stroked hi-capas, basically I don't feel like I'll ever be bottlenecked by the guns despite having steel slides.

    The 19X is hopefully due later this week (fingers crossed) 

    Bought the Gen5 17 MOS too, that'll be another 2-3week wait😭

    Really hope the plates are real steel compatible, I want to mount the Shield MOS plate and an RMS dot. So low, even co-witnesses with standard sights😁


    Like this..? ;)


    This is the VFC x ALC steel slide version, but using Shield SMS instead of RMS or SMS2.0, but same mounting footprint. Had to copy ALC's RMR plate and get my own plate CNC'd as there's no aftermarket options 😕 FWIW though the SMS / RMS aren't actually co-witness so to speak, but more similar to 1/3 you'd find on rifle optics. 

  6. As both the Springfield and Other Pistols thread have long been archived, I'm creating another "Other Pistols" thread!




    TM x RA-Tech XDM 40

    RA-Tech steel slide, HK3P frame, Sringer Precision magwell and mag plate, with Springer Precision style 3D printed brake, 3D printed optic mount and charging handle. 

    Once my trusty skirmish tactic00l black pistol, it has since been turned into an IPSC style open gun.

    AC Unity 60 Rounder modded to take GHK internals, got it half price as it has cracked windows. Still work in progress, physically fits but don't dare test fire just yet until alignment is good. Once that's done, will look into expanding BB capacity and potentially even gas if it requires it. (Probably not necessary given default mag already goes through far more than one fill and I'm unlikely going to be able to double capacity. Helped by @Bada Bing's video for general mag mod tips, so thanks for that.

  8. It is, they had a Beretta in that movie with similar arrangement as well, and they are seen throughout in both configuration, I don't really know how you would seal it, I guess the suppressor has a neck that extends through the comp to thread onto the barrel. It's not a terrible idea actually, given that already exist for rifles with all those Surefire brakes with QD suppressor threads and what not.
