    Magpul PTS RM4 ERG Series.

    I'm getting in touch with a shop that has some real equipment. The guy your talking about mentioned having to cut away the rear tabs. I'm thinking there wasn't enough space to fit inbetween the gearbox and the lower so I hope this shop could dremel away alittle of the inside of the lower to allow those tabs to fit and hopefully still be able to just use the normal rear body pin.

    Magpul PTS RM4 ERG Series.

    Hey guys, I got a few questions and I'm trying to knock out two birds with one stone so hear me out. I am trying to find out if I can take the upper receiver from a Krytac LMG and install it on the lower receiver of a PTS ERG, I know to do this I need to remove the charging handle and fake bolt along with getting the front receiver pin hole cut down to fit normal aeg uppers. But is there anything else that I need to worry about? Like is the gearbox shell wider or untraditional in other ways that I will need to deal with? I then am going to take that LMGs gearbox and attempt to use it on a VFC M27 build. It bugs the hell out of me that my M27 does not have the ambi safety like the real one (or TMs for that matter). I have a friend that could buff away the original Krytac trades and place some new M27 marine trades so I'm good on that. I'm just not sure if the 416 series uses a standard lower or if it's modified in some way. Just covering my bases since I know their uppers are unique to account for their own rail system. I know it won't be easy but I don't think it's impossible either.

    Krytac CRB Initial Impressions

    I've been seeing more companies that have less than specatcular finish's on their rifles. I remember my own along with others had that issue with the RM4s of last year. You seem to mention that it's minor right now but if it becomes glaringly bad make sure to tell us.

    That rear wiring system reminds me of how BOLT figured out that same problem. I'm more interested on when the EPM ERG mags will come out. Been putting off on picking up more ERG mags since I prefer the EPM style and it would make it easier for me to distinguish between them and my regular EMAGs.

    Krytac CRB Initial Impressions

    It really bother's me how few airsoft teams build ARs with ambi selectors. From what I've read most gearbox's can accommodate it but it's the receivers that pose the issue. I will be curious on if that makes it more diffucult to get the gearbox out or not.

    Initial Impressions of the TM SCAR-L Recoil Shock AEG System

    Ah it wasn't as apparent from a distance but I notice it now. Thank you for saving me time/money.

    Initial Impressions of the TM SCAR-L Recoil Shock AEG System

    Could you go alittle more into that? They use the same gearbox and hopup from everything I've seen. And that outside of some markings that the only difference for the airsoft models is the lower receiver and the fact that the Mk17 uses it's own styled magazines.

    Initial Impressions of the TM SCAR-L Recoil Shock AEG System

    Richard Y, Did you guys ever find any aftermarket parts that would offer a greater feeling of recoil from this system? I know that the AR15 series has a selection of different springs available to offer more or less recoil but I couldn't find anything on your site indicating that there was anything for the Scar. Also is there any differences in the lower receivers between the Mk16 and Mk17 besides the enlarged magazine well? I may in the future decide to swap out my lower for a black one to match my VFCs but would like to know if I would be able to swap calibers as well without needing anything else besides the lower.
  9. Thanks Puresilver. You confirmed something I had slightly suspected. That it is in every sense of the word a custom piece since something is likely to have been manufactured for this one model. I was just curious on if angrygun or somebody else had designed something to be used in real steel Remmington stocks to widen the options you could use. It will do pretty much everything I wanted my shotguns to do (shells instead of magazine, gas, Magpul SGA set) but damn a grand is a high asking price for a novelty weapon.
  10. Can someone tell me how Ehobbey put this one togather? http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/eac-marui-m870-sga-tactical-magpul-custom-shotgun-gas-powered.html#.U9tvgfldWSo I know that the forend required only alittle work but what would have gone in to get the stock to work correctly as well? I recently had a M500 with SGA parts stolen from me (along with a Maruzen with G&P parts) and I've been looking to replace that shotgun and this might fit the bill. Just need to know if it'd be a better idea to buy these parts individually or pay the huge charge that this custom is asking for.

    Can anyone atest to the quality of the Laylax aftermarket screws or shell deflector? Got one of these second hand that had a faulty rear half of the wiring hairness (finger's crossed that was all it was) and I'm about to place a order with Eagle6 for the part but I figured to save on shipping I may as well get any Laylax parts that should be picked up. So the shell deflector had snapped off in shipping so I'm curious on if Laylax's holds up as they claim and if there replacement scews or frame lock pin are worth the investment or are just overkill.

    1911 Picture Thread

    I agree. Most of the time a argument like that falls short. I can even understand when you drop say close to a grand on a really nice GBBR like a Viper or Bomber. But for a pistol that does seem quite high. They're barrel slide kits are 700$ alone which also seems a bit high. Maybe it's just me but I feel when you get over 500$ invested in a single pistol (not including magazine cost) you start venturing into overkill territory. But I guess I shouldn't be one to talk since i wanna eventually get that Tanaka M327 with the Iron Airsoft metal kit, which will be in the 700-800$ range and how I would love to eventually get a set of RS crimson trace Master Series lasergrips that have the miniaturized laser to accommodate ambidextrous safety's which alone would run me 400$.

    BOLT M4A1 Internals

    I can speak for the Bolt and the ERG. The bolt to me at least feels like a heavy motion but not as quick to cycle while the ERG has a snappy jolt but doesn't feel like it's carrying the weight as far. In my area Bolt's are often used in favor of ERG for people trying to replicate real AR15 since they can get the feeling of the recoil and fire rate more in sync than with the ERG. However I feel my ERG is overall a better preforming gun in every way. Everything feels more solid.

    Magpul PTS RM4 ERG Series.

    Okay, I didn't know about the lawsuit between LMT and Mega Arms. I was just comparing information I had gleaned from the Recon spread about the real Mega Arms rifles and if the airsoft equivalent shared that design feature.

    Magpul PTS RM4 ERG Series.

    Can't remember off hand but did they go the extra mile and make the Mega Arms uppers one piece or is there a artificial break between the handguard and the upper receiver on the PTS version? As for your question. I think KWA said something at Shotshow earlier this year that the standard ARs should be coming out in the fall of this year. Could just have been a mistake saying it and that he wasn't suppose to but I remember hearing that during one of the interviews.
