    Super nice, ever considered getting the new slimline motors and stuffing it into a milled real steel pistol grip?

    Glock laser hop unit

    A foolishly ambitious project, spoiler alert, doesn't work the way I'd like it to. It's a hop unit for airsoft Glock that shoots lasers instead of BBs. Basically like the "laser bullets" you get with real steel guns but for airsoft, with the blowback. It takes the pressure which is usually meant for the BB to push a switch to close the circuit of a laser diode where the inner barrel is usually positioned. Splits into two for assembly. Testing the plunger / button: Assembled, now tested in a gun with plenty of gas in gun. Predictably, with the recoil shaking the gun around (This is on a steel slide Glock with Volante BBU), the target dot isn't very useful, it creates a streak instead of a clean dot, here you can see a test with a nearly empty mag, where the very last shot does not cycle the gun, here you can see a clean useful dot. So that pretty much brings me to the end of this project as far as I'm prepared to go for now, oh well, was fun and learned a lot in the process.

    Glock laser hop unit

    Yeah would definitely work well with NBB pistols, every shot would look like the last shot of the last video.

    Glock laser hop unit

    Funnily enough I actually started this by doing the whole barrel, and slowly shrunk it down to the hop unit partially because my 3D printed outer barrels kept exploding from the pressure, although that's probably because I didn't omit the tilting barrel as you suggested. I don't have the knowledge to do any circuitry for delays either, perhaps I'll tweak the spring pressure and see if I can get the dot to be a little bit smaller.
  5. So a long time ago I got to use an AK in Slovakia that had a really nice dust cover rail on. Note how it's nearly identical to the Texas Weapon System rail, except it has the original rear sight on. Since I own the Asura TWS clone, I thought maybe all I need to do is replace the "bridge" to do what the little rail does on top. ^Asura rail. Work in progress: Still need a bit of tweaking, the rear sight sits 1.5mm higher than the original position, so if I cared enough I would adjust the front sight up by the same amount. Gotta come up with a way to put a spring in there to keep good tension, and a few more fitment issues, after that it's ready to get printed in steel!

    Yeeeeeeees, was in Vegas last month and had a chance to try the 40DS, will likely pick one up, looks full metal too? Hope they do a fake blue finish.
  7. I did think about the BDC situation, for airsoft purposes obviously doesn't make any difference, but for real steel... I'm not sure how much it'd effect it, since both sights are raised together by 1.5mm, wouldn't that cancel any shifts? I'd imagine the difference can't be that big, besides, we all know AKs aren't accurate and only for engagement within 50m and after which it flies wildly in all direction, right...!? You mean to bridge them across width-wise right? Like connect it into one thick hook instead of two spindly ones? It won't look the same as the original one though 😕 Authenticity vs durability trade off... ummmm
  8. Likely Shapeways, given it's size hopefully it isn't going to be too much.

    LCT AK12

    Guess it's officially out, available on KIC That mag looks very IMI or FAB defence, in all the bad ways.

    Glock Picture Thread

    The gold is supposedly Titanium Nitride coating, the same coating seen on some drill bits and cutting tools. For airsoft it's entirely looks, but for real steel it does have good properties for steel exposed to a lot of heat... so you'd almost need to add another cosmetic black coating just to cover the gold if you want that physical property on the metal's surface.

    Mah it was an airsoft one made by Spear Arms. Bought it from eHob way back. I just mistreated it to make it look old and terrible.

    GHK why problem make when you no problem have you don't want to make?

    Glock Picture Thread

    I owned the full steel VFC Glock 17 before with CO2 mag and the fugly base, back when it was Stark Arms, the external was lovely and the internals were okay, but it performed fairly average, didn't kick very hard on co2 and just works on green gas. So I'm hoping this is a complete revamp with different blowback engine would make it kick more like the FNX series in the shape of a Glock. There's no real way to find out without owning one, and I don't even know where those guys got their steel slides from (their builds were G34s)... will wait and see.

    Glock Picture Thread

    Words from HK is saying that full steel builds based on the latest Umarex / VFC Glock kicks harder than a TM Glock with Volante BBU by a significant margin, which in my book pretty much puts it on top. I'm trying not to think too much about it at the moment as I have four TM Glock steel builds so that's giving me major FOMO.

    GHK AK(M) Compatibility with real parts?

    This probably helps.

    GHK AK(M) Compatibility with real parts?

    If you're happy to pay extra for trades, you could just get the clone one engraved by companies such as Run In Workshop. I own the TWS and the GHK AKs, and can confirm it won't fit without some weird surgery required as suggested above..

    Hope this doesn't go down the route of wherever that semi-auto shotgun went.

    Guarder new TM Glock GEN3 frames

    This is awesome, $169 usd from KIC, or $1099 Hong Kong street price ($140 usd), will definitely be picking one up to complete another steel build, will work out so much cheaper than my previous builts factoring in shipping costs...

    Takes out two enemy combatants at the same time, as long as the shooter and the target are both your enemies...

    LCT EBB prototypes - MP5, SCAR H, M16, G3, CQBR

    Wonder how the LCT one compares with the BOLT mp5, which as far as I remember is also stamped steel and has decent recoil. With LCT officially doing an MP5 though, there's hope for a GHK MP5.

    VFC MP7 AEG looks closer and closer

    I doubt your £5 mag would work for any of the next gen guns with bolt stop features...

    VFC MP7 AEG looks closer and closer

    The EVO mag is a bit cheaper, but... we're talking about $30 a mag here, which is likely to be a little lower if sourced from Taiwan, it's on the high end of AEG mag prices but I wouldn't call it "Way too expensive" IMO, "way too expensive" would be the GBB priced GBLS DAS magazine at over $50 each.
  24. Ever since the Hollywood thread went to archive we don't seem to have a thread dedicated to movie, games or other popular culture inspired loadouts and collection, which accounts for the majority of the reasons I end up buying airsoft guns..! PUBG collection: KWA Kriss Vector WE x Ghost Island full steel M9 LCT VSS Vintorez Ino 1911 TM SCAR-L SA full steel Glock PPS Kar98 with PUBG style ACOG position (clearly game devs aren't familiar with the concept of eye relief) TM x LCS next-gen recoil M16 John Wick 1 + 2: TM x RA-Tech full steel HK45 (in lieu of P30L) with WT John Wick Comp TM x TH full steel G34 TTI Combat Master Continental chocolate coins...
