  1. Saw this in the combat south shop and fell in love- same as my dad. Whopping pricetag though; I skimmed a review on it in AI mag and it said something about rare earth metals..
  2. Beautiful work m8! Ive been trying to get the perfect russian red on a wood one. I do have a plastic one too. Cd u give me a brief list of materiels and a step by step to get that colour and green as well?
  3. Man that thing is nice. Czech's still making the best guns in the world... Pistolet Radom, bren, vz58, skorpion pistol, the new bren, cz pistols- just off the top of my head. All time classics.
  4. Yeah, I think ill go second hand on my next one too. Im selling off my air weapons and older aegs; slimlining my armoury to fund the "dream weapon" list. Ignoring the for sale kit my loadout is: KJW g27, ICS M4 RIS, and my "AK modular Weapon system in a box project" pretty much 3 receivers so far- with those three and the right parts you can make every Ak derivative ever made, or at least the s9viet classics. My dream gun tho? Tricky there are so many. Ill stay on topic though- somebody please suggest a perfect M16 replica, A1 at the latest, though I love the look of the bakelite furnitur
  5. Man thats a nice bit of optic. What is it about russian weapon design, or at least soviet, design? I swear the top marshals and arms ministers held a meeting one day: "okay gentlemen, we are skint. We have nukeswith 50 megaton payloads, yet cant afford the fuel to fire them beyond Bulgaria. Our only hope is a scarydesign ethos. We'll call it the Soviet School of terrifying, yet utilitarian Small arms. Our future depends on armijg our troops with hardware thatll scare the *suitcase* out of the enemy" They did it too; look at the AK. It looks predatory, with a type of evil prescence. And
  6. Re holsters i believe they have some left- an unissued czech army shoulder rig for 13 quid. Very "secret police" and very Combloc- nice leather will accomodate any large pistol. Holsters for modern smgs are good but if you want the real soviet look and something retro theyre not making any more of grab this. Will post pics. (Im selling my vz and holster for parts gun brand new just wont shoot. Pm me if interested; will be cheap. )
  7. If i was going to start a small war its what I'd choose. Lil help for the clueless tho: BPRE?
  8. Had to put this up- these were presented to the best Guardsmen and this was presented by Kalashnikov himself. This is in a museum now, only one left and probably worth a fortune.
  9. Cool optics- just a v cool gun top 2 tail. What make/model is it? I see youve stuck with the skeleton stock rather than the polymer one. Im selling off a lot of mine mostly my never used airguns, then spend the lot on the best soviet aeg or gbb i can possibly find, most prob a realsword type 59 akm Oh yeah i read the plum colour was a soviet screw up when creating the black colouration- any truth 2 that? If so it would explain why that colour is so damn expejsive as parts. Just seen ur old school svd with pso (genuine?). Weird how even their non-ak derived small arms look exactly like
  10. It works very well, tho noidea what CAG is? Id love to give my m4 a goodpaintjob....but i just can't bear to "mar" that lovely deep blue. Ive been putting heavy work into my aks and havenegpected my m4 terribly so ive been giving it a little love ie dropping cash on it. I got a red dot and mounted that to the flattop butitjust didnt look right; Im just too90's; gotta have that hi profile optics over handle look. Good to hear owners of hi spec guns using china parts; i get sick of people bashing entire product lines blind, simply because they have the "made in..." stigma. The stuff coming
  11. Im actually considering the viper ak12 - how would u rate build quality- particularly the plastic: brittle abs or the light but tough anti shockstuff cyma use? I thought id post my first attempt at camo. Rifle is a cyma p1093s, which i give 8 out of ten as a springer; I was very impressed. No flamey type comments please; its a first attempt and not finished- some tips wd be v welcome. So heres my Zebra splitter with chocolate chips scheme Edit: the spots on the mag and receiver are actually cat litter; im going to drybrush it to look like dirt. Also i should add: if youre considering
  12. Both quality rifles; the top one is close to mine actually similar rails etc-is yours the ics m4a1? That rail-type thing mounted onthe barrel- whats it called? And the patriot gastube thing i love; is it simply the m4 stock without the cheekpiece?
  13. Yeah boy! Im over my dislike of modernized aks with rails etc and ill always prefer a "naked"one-just cause theyre so heavy....but that is really well built; love youd stock, compensator, and the grip is just sweet particularly the sling; what type of sling is it?
  14. Definately. Even without the blowback youre getting that nice "crack!" Report and the faint cloud-small things and a lot of maintenance you pay for them - but realism is kind of the goal for many- I mean were paying firearm prices near enough for perfect replicas. Aeg tech is incredible and leaps beyond gas- but imho the shooting feels sterile and lacking somehow. TM ebbs give more but are very expensive-beyond the reach of most new blood by far-of course, theyll be chinasoft ebb's- law of trickledown and all, but the no frills aeg is standard. Personally, I think realistic sound is the w
  15. Phwoaar...! A katana, eh? Ill have to check those out for sure- i really like these oddball ar15's right now-specially in the patriot/pistol class. The AR will just evolve imho and were seeing the standard configurations give way to radical newstyles. Check out the keltec pmr pistol eg, I mean the AR is a worldbeater and dominent at every site ive played; i think the next revolution in ballistics-be it caseless, micro calibre bullets fired with em bullets- I think itll come in an AR platform. I like the classic rifles myself-ive the ics m4a1 with a stubby stock....bog standard but whe
  16. It looks a proffesional job; did you take it to a gunsmith or sokething? Or is cerakote that finish designed to be done at home? Either way that gun is my favourite model and done to exactly my taste-so simple, great colour matching, kept traditional- just wondering whats going on at the front end. Classic, neo classical polymer - or just a ris? I kind of love the akmsu but there is nothing on it just an old picture of a big flashider and a lower handguard on a normal akms....does anyone have some good info on this, maybe a link?
  17. Really, really good finish. Never seen cerakote on an airsoft gun before, I was briefly considering diy parkerizing of my ak to get that smooth grey finish but didnt wanna risk messing up. This has made me want to get my '74u done-ive got soke chrome plated parts and that flat gray will just pop That pistol grip though - that must be handmade or RS cos i have never seen one anywhere. Is it grip tape by any chance?
  18. Ive got an ics m4a1 and i want to retrofy it; ive got the old style mags and ive ordered this barrel extension that screws on where the flashider goes (i want the rifle length ar); I cant find an ics triangular guard, but ive found a jg one. For a great price. Ill need the A1 delt ring but re te front sight assembly would i need to by an A1 one or will my existing one fit?
  19. Yeah, also its a hi end gun; imo even a professional camo job will spoil the incredible bluing used on them. There a paint called Weapon paint I use. It makes exclellent camo and also it wipss off with a special spray they sell, and they have a great range too. Also theres plasti-coat; spray on silicon that peels off when youre done - I think they do camo now, but its not cheap, and a can doesnt go far. If i was painting that,itd be a simle scheme, using sand to tie the receiver in with those desert parts...maybe a few vertical stripes and some white or brown "leapord spots". Id leave
  20. I thought it was an airsoft project gun, and an inlet like that i wouldnt risk not in our weather.... Is that the kac pdw btw? Intereating piece that- I alwaya do a double take when i see those as i can nevwr figure out if its an ar15 with an aks74u stock or what. I did check it out, and its proprietery. I think the AR is for training purposes-kind of like the colt smg sort of. I may actually get this springer oit there right now to hang on the old wall, and for some camo scheme practice. "Bison PDW" its just acheapo springer; no contest for that WE there, but i do like a decent springer,
  21. First time i saw it i thought it had to be a fictional project gun - but they make these things!? I dont like; design-wise its a p90 mag crudely shoehorned onto a gun of completely different dimensions. When i saw crude i mean it doesnt make sense; top loading mag: cool. But dont forget that now useless magwell -its a water inlet. If i owned this id need to put in months of remodelling work. Radical new ammo storage should work to the rifle....this could work with a Bizon style mag i think; as the two platforms have similar dimensions, and as a pneumatic rifle owner i love the appeal of large
  22. To much explosive, not enough ventilation; old problem that. (When your in a vault, theres never enough bloody ce4 so its the coin cabinets..) Im foggly on muzzle devices though, 's74u in particular. I mean, flashider:obvious. Brake: a we8ght i think limits rwcoil but higher noise- but the 's74u... does it eject gas or something - if so wouldnt that put more force to the bullet? Or is that a muzzle booster, as soon on s9me maxims and many aircraft guns? Cause that thing is one big lump o' metal, I cant see baffles or slants 9r what theyre called-just a big fat cone (reallly does look l
  23. I know its a *badgeress* of a cliche: the ak was made for ignorant peasants who couldnt be trusted with tying the8r laces much less use a rifle, and its ; by the time it entered mass production (after theyd perfected mass production using stamped pieces of metal, )the red army were a modern, proffesiojal force-and they had the concept of the universal weapon figured out-one army one weapon. We had the sterling at this time, the bren, smle, lee sniping variants, webley revolvers....they had the ak 47 and rpk. Its not light, but imagine the effects on logistics. Id love a pistol too, psm or
  24. Niiice. So thats a new type 56? Dont fret about the paijt job tho...to get the authentic finish ive found it to be a process of many seperate layers and materiels. Those patches are a great start-once ive got my orange sprayed, then its a black wash, wiping off the raised parts for depth and shadow. Im a sucker for red "russian" myself-ive had good results with basecoat, black wash, then a wash of crimson ink, putting a bit of fairy liquid in the mix; it makets it very oily and it paijts itself rlly-you caj do this with black. Once ive got rhe tone its just a nice thick shell of wood varni
