  1. 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.
  2. 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 VF
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Ah it wasn't as apparent from a distance but I notice it now. Thank you for saving me time/money.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 needin
  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.
  11. 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.
  12. Thanks for the tip about the VFC LLM01. Planned on eventually getting one for my G36 (and maybe a L85 if I can flip this F2000).
  13. Thank you both for your help. Cursory google searches did little to answer either of my questions (besides one company saying they did the transplant but than never responding to my inquiry in what was involved in regards to custom shaving grinding).
  14. Hey guys, do you know where to find a dissembly guide for the single optic carry handle scope? Took a bad hit on a corner and when I raised the replica again I noticed my reticule was rotated about 35' I think the inner spring that applies pressure to keep it straight merely lost tension for a moment during the impact and allowed the scope to rotate slightly since it is no longer rotating. The OEM is Umarex (S&T likely although it was advertised as Ares). On a side note has anyone here also experimented on transplanting the internals of the TM Recoil shock into the better body of a S
  15. 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 ho
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. True guys but I'd love to use MUR styled uppers (or since its PTS a Mega Arms would be nice too). I too am waiting on the standard AR receivers to get released Don't wanna mess around with my Scout for that Ares Stryke build I talked about in the other forum.
  20. Well I know the RM4 stock has more than a stock TM (although I wonder how much of a difference those aftermarket recoil kits change it like the custom Eagle6 one). What I want though is a more aftermarket friendly receiver. I know that if you do a buffer tube recoil system the lower will need to be slightly proprietary but please try to stop messing with your uppers too guys.
  21. There seemed to have been huge quality control problems with these pistols for pretty much the whole production run of them. Things such as the slide release literally eating the slide away to the point that it can no longer catch to the feed ramp deforming after only a magazine or two out of the box. If you go on the KWA Forum and go into the HK45 section there are just thread after thread of people having issues that new parts simply don't fix. Now a few people seemed to have gotten some that do just last forever but there is a serious issue that happened with the Hk45. Issues that
  22. Have we heard anything about if this model is reverse compatible with the older Marushins that were designed to run off duster or green gas? Just curious since if the pistols does show issues after long term use that may be a alternative to extending it's life. If they work at all that is.
  23. Glad there's finally a realiable option for HK45s. Always wanted to build one of those SAI HK45s but the KSC/KWA horror stories always had me steer clear away from any that went up for sale no matter how good the deal seemed.
  24. Twist barrel, I thought only one company experimented with rifling airsoft barrels and found it was met with less than desirable results. But I too am interested in if a BTC Chimera would work as a replacement trigger switch. I've been looking to get all my AEGs upgraded with a full suite and that was one of the upgrades I was looking at. But you guys don't feel you'd get better performance out of a Prommy 6.01 with a ER hop M nub combination over simply replacing the stock hopup nub? Or is it that the performance boost would simply not be as great as it would be on other rifles.
  25. Any idea of a comparative brand that would mimic the spring from that PDW? Looking to downgrade the FPS of my own to around the 350 mark and would love to keep as much of the recoil as I could.
