    K-SMG 2 Project build thread

    No that would ruin your great retro style ! But IMO you need to think more "steampunk" re-design modern accessories, with old school materials like you do now.

    K-SMG 2 Project build thread

    Awesome project as always, 👍 Suggestions; - Make the receiver/hanguard/rail longer, until only a muzzle device is visible, or make it flush (like a CQBR or an LVOA) - Get rid of the front sight on the barrel, and place it onto the rail. - For the stock maybe make something like a Magpul UBR , where you combine wood with metal sliding parts.
  3. Hello members i wanna show you guys my newest asset, from Taiwangun, since there isn't much to find about the CM M4 style replica's, i thought it might be interesting to review this replica. About CM: It isn't clear yet, how these brand's are related to each other , but i understood CM is an home-brand of Taiwangun and can be either a Cyma or a P&J (wich on its turn would be an A&K) ? That being said, CM is located in the low/medium price range, like Specna foR example, where Specna as about 50 different M4 models, CM as a bit more variation, they have AK's, M14's, shotguns, snipers, smg's, and aep's. About the CM.072 model: Taiwangun descript the CM.072 as an Mk12mod1 model, this is not correct ! In fact its a more an hybride between the SR-25 and SR-15, a creation of Eugene Stoner (designer of the original M16) I wil try to keep my explanation succinctly, just study on the picture -i made- below and it al wil be clear, i highlighted the main features. SR-25 and SR-15 both are made by Knight Armament, the SR-25 is a 7.62mm rifle and is besides the base for the US Army M110 ( USMC Mk11 designation) an issue of clarity The SR-15 is kinda "little brother" of the SR-25, chambered in 5.56mm and AFAIK not in military use. Mk12's are made out of M16's by the Crane division (US.Navy gunsmithers) the SPR/DMR concept is an invention of the US Navy SEAL's during operation Dessert Shield, on the dessert battlefield they get encountered with longer ranges, than the Vietnam jungle, and the need for a rifle that was better suited for longer distances. Thats why we sometimes hear about a SEAL recon rifle or SPR (Special Purpose Rifle) ........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................ In the box: The CM.072 comes ( as usual ) in a cardboard box, with foam, in the box we find : CM.072 replica with suppressor 9.6V 1200Mah NiMH "nunchuck" accu High cap mag in Magpul style Battery charger Taiwangun keychain .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. About the performances: As i usual do, i have made a test configuration, loaded with 0.3 gram Specna BB's , ligned up with my laser bore sighter, on the target 12m further, by testing al my replica's the same way, i get an overview and can compare them , i had made a nice video, in witch i demonstrate the fps, and even a soundmeter Db app to test the suppressor, but the Moron i am, the camera was't running and now the replica is dissasembled. So guys you wil have to believe me on my word The CM.072 shoots OOTB 413, an419 fps with 0.3 gram BB's, the suppressor gives no noticable Db differences, altough the replica sound pretty "dull" the replica is besided acompagnied by a testsheet from Taiwangun. I started with a couple of shots, with the hop fully opened, en then i started adjustng the hop until the hits came into the center of the barrels axis , the CM.072 shoots groups of about 6cm ! Pretty satisfying OOTB in my opinion ! .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... About the externals: When we take a closer look at the externals, it appears this replica as some quite "correct" details, starting at the front: A nice detailed SR-25 style suppressor, spring loaded on the barrel, and foam filled Under the suppressor a straigth SR-25 style outer barrel On the barrel an SR-25 style gasblock, with an SR-25 front flip sight A nice KAC SR-25 free float rail, wel made -without markings- nice detail : are the plug welds of the receiver adapter ! About the receiver: So far i only spoke about SR-25 parts, but what the CM.072 actualy makes a SR-15 is the 5.56 M16/M4 receiver, this is wel made, and finished , engraved with a P&J logo, also there are some accessories mounted witch are not milspec. this is not realy realistic Ambi mag catch, with at the right side an "Odin works XMR" extended release knob, handy but at the other hand, these large buttons are also easily unwillingly pressed in Fire selector in "Battle Arms Development" style, turns & clicks smootly. Enhanced "Troy" trigger guard. "Magpul MOE" grip, with a rigid motor base plate ! Dummy forward bolt assist Dummy bolt plate can be can be "catched" withe the bolt catch, for better acces to the HU unit Fixed stock in G&P stijl with adjustable length, contains the accu. Here some demo video's The KAC 600M rear flip sight is the most realistic version i saw in airsoft version ! CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE CM.072 PHOTOALBUM HERE .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. Dissambly phase externals: Upper receiver get separated from lower when the pins are slided out, these are not screw-locked but are secured with a spring and clip. The rail can be very easily removed thanks to the KAC system with the nut. The rail nut sits behind the barrel nut, en can be loosed with a Colt barrel wrench. The gasblock is secured with a little allen screw in the bottom. Fixed stock , first remove the buttplate assembly, and the the central screw can be removed, same as an AEG stocktube, altough you need an even longer screwdriver ! remarkable there are two Tamiya connectors , and a fuse box between the cable CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE CM.072 PHOTO ALBUM OVERHERE .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Dissasembly phase internals: The CM.072 is equiped with a so called reinforced gearbox, here the main features: Unmarked motor, according to Taiwangun spec's this should be an high speed motor ? Gears turning into 8mm cross sloted bushings, and are more or less shimmed. Brass full cylinder. Plastic cylinder head with double o-ring Plastic nozzle head without o-ring M120 spring Ball bearing spring guide Piston with plastic teeth, only the last tooth is metal. Radiust, reinforced gearbox frame, plenty greased. CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE CM.072 PHOTOALBUM OVERHERE ...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Pro's & Con's + Price + Nice correct externals + 9.6V NiMH battery included + High cap mag + Adjustable stock length + Suppressor included + Ball bearing springguide + Accurate OOTB - No markings on the rail - P&J logo unrealistic - Nice externals but nevertheless Not a legit SR-15 nor a SR-25 - Access to battery compartiment too narrow. - Basic gearbox internals .......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... That's al folks, hope you enjoyed my review, it was objective, and informative ! CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE CM.072 PHOTOALBUM OVERHERE
