    Raptor MP-443 PYa "Grach"

    Awesome review. The choice of an o-ring instead of cup seal is where it shows their lack of experience with GBBs. I'm pretty sure this gun would greatly benefit from a cup seal, and a somewhat lighter hammer spring while we're at it. Giving a second thought on that, IIRC the Makarov nozzle is also 15mm, so maybe we could adapt WE piston head and shaft to the Raptor Grach.

    wonder if RPK-74 (45rnd) mag shells could fit the WE AK-74 mag internals..

    I assumed we were talking about the 74 mags (the plastic ones), as those are the ones that break easily, as well as the ones that are much longer than real mags.

    None. Your best bet is reinforcing the standard shells.

    Fair enough, that's why I emphasised that the rentals allows us to test a gun at a much faster pace than a regular user would. Most users probably won't gent any of the issues until about a year of use, except for the mag catch. That's the only big fail on the gun, and should be evident for anyone that can get their hands on those mags. Really, really sharp metal edges engaging a tiny plastic surface should be an obvious no-go. Other than that, it's true that there are many guns with less durability, but there's also many that last 20x more. I guess comrade Diatlov can say it clearer:

    Well we got some of those for the rental field and results are not good at all. Yup, it's a snappy gun... being a really light weight slide. But the recoil, accuracy and range are "meh" at best. The real issue is with durability. At the rental field, guns go through about a 500 rounds every day. This allow us to test guns at a much faster place than any normal user would. At that pace, the humble WE G17s are lasting for 2 years before showing any failure, which normally is the sear, right where it engages with the trigger bar. The ICSs lasted less than a month. The most obnoxious design flaw is the plastic magazine catch that engages really sharp edges on the mags, and furthermore, with a really small surface area, so they fail really fast. Other broken parts have been hammers, seals, and sears. All in all, I wouldn't recommend them at all.

    Army G36 Feedback?

    At that sort of temperature you should be using at least Map Pro / propylene or even black gas

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    The 74M is post-soviet and is the most common rifle in any deployment, the previous AK-74, AKS-74 and most other variants can be seen a lot in training but they are long gone from actual service. The plan is to modernise most of those guns to the 74M3 spec (which is something airsoft manufacturers could easily do as well) and get any new production in the AK-12 / 15 variant. They are already making their way to the units and are gonna be the most common in a decade. This is no AN-94.

    Wut? They have been officially adopted by the Russian military, and chances of changes at this point is close to zero

    I've removed the side rail for the RPK project, so had to replace the rivet with a round head screw and two nuts. There was no way in hell I could get the proper rivets and tooling in my area. Then I filled the screw slot with epoxy and painted it. Looks pretty much like a rivet.

    WE Makarov PMM

    nope and nope. As long as you keep it in the normal operating range (80 to 160PSI), gas pressure has no influence on FPS. And the gun is not a joule creeper with such a short barrel.

    Weird, just checked ours with the handguards off and there's literally zero wobble, and they have about 4 years of use. The only one that has is because the owner pushed the pin in the wrong direction + he's using a RPK-length, full steel barrel extension. Which I'm totally gonna fix with this technique, so thanks!

    WE Makarov PMM

    It does, but bear in mind the pressure relief sleeve takes 13mm out of the usable barrel length, and it's a 6.04... so the FPS are just about (o even slightly below than) that of the OEM barrel with no extension

    WE Makarov PMM

    A silly mod / upgrade than can help with accuracy: prevent any movement in the inner barrel by shimming the space between the inner and outer with a cut out from an old bucking. In the pic I'm using a Ra-Tech 84mm x 6.01 inner barrel, as that's the longest one and tightest that fits

    Thanks! I've never seen such problem develop in our 74Us, but our custom-build "WE" RPK has some wobble on the barrel. Will try this fix asap
