    Initial impressions of the Tokyo Marui HK417

    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..

    It has a sci fi vibe i think;reminds me of a lasgun or something frok halo. I think its the script. Did you use drybrushing too? A showpiece, no doubt.

    Id say a light sand basecoat sprayed, with khaki's and browns for your pattern . Browns are great - theyre versatile as hell and mix very well. The important thing is: what terrain are you trying to emulate? Im doing a g36 now. The base is light brown, khaki-dark i call it. I want it to look like its been dusted with sand, not painted, so i will crush up cat litter and chuck that on, then some sand, then spray it with sand paint through a filter (fine mesh sieve), then drybrush it. I did this on a mag and it does indeed look as intended.

    Im calling it "Zebra ate choc Chip and Vomited profusely" Its my first ever paintjob as yoi can prob tell....dont worry: its a 30 kwid springer; no hi-end AK rifles were hurt in this process. The mags are a Zebra choc chip tanker mag. Fakelite '74 mag, and a classic 47 with cat litter and lacquer.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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 furniture on those early issues. Failing thatits gotta be the g&p Car 15. If only ICS werent so picky with parts I would love that modular AR15 concept. Oh yeah- my m4 has colt trades and you can adjust the barrel, but at my local shop all their M4's have ICS logos. Whys that?

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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 the SVD too. It wasnt the precision sniper rifle its credited as; more like a DMR, yet Its consistently rated highly at least among the "experts". Partly of course down to that incredible scope- with its windage, bullet drop calculator it makes the spotter uneccesary- and goes to show the russians know a lot about "Sniperism". How much was yours? Say, if your serving in Afghan, it cant have been too much- at least if youre doing the "hearts and minds" bit well. If your a local though, we should PM...I have a khyber pass shopping list

    Well Vz 61 Skorpion AEP

    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. )

    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.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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 AK derivatives- prob down to fmiliarisation, ease of use or something. Is yours the Chinese Norinco? Only ask cos RS seem to specialise in Chinese stuff now. Edit: 'sup Ninja master? (Seen ur here at the bottom bit).

    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 out of china these days can be honestly impressive- The market is big now; crude copies in abs wont cut it anymore, at least at the medium budget level. My first ever was a 99 kwid jg m4; its made of brittle grade abs but its a tank, shooting fine 10 years on. Now, theyre packaging, branding, and finish is on par with the good Taiwanese cokpanies id say I want to get an S.I.R too; can anybody recomend one compatible with ICS m4's. Ive got eyes on the dboy-so cheap! Even considering buying theyre mpeg, stripping the sir and stock, then modding the chsapo carbine a bit- maybe buy m16a1 furniture for it (love the old skool too) This is something ive wondered: how do u rate your CA aeg? Its one brand ive very little exp with, but their line up is really eclectic and pretty cool. My budget would he the 150 to 200 mark...would that get me a good m16?

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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 buying a cyma underfolding stock, i suggest u get this rifle as its the exact same stock and you pay the same only with a free hi cap and a very nice ak47s springer

    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?

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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?

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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 way to go, based on my experience with RC tanks; they have airsoft guns and powerful sound chips- fire the gun, and you get an awesome blast (on a quality chip) recorded from the real gun. Some use silicon oil to produce a cloud of smoke even, and a tank skirmish is far more exciting; Imagine an airsoft ruck with realistic sound effects? Just noise but its those little things

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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 when ive finished other projects its gonnna be Danny Archers M4 from Blood Diamond, copying the improv camo scheme, the wear and dirt. Its just that classic 90's thing I love- Termie 2 sparked an obsession. anybody else done a build based on a film or game out there? The best ive seen is a superb Chinese AK from fallout 3. The pulse gun and Samurais edge are good but off the shelf so dont really count.

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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?
  22. JackofBlades2448

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    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?

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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?

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    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 plenty of the original finish though. Edit: had a closer look, and its a really good AR. Youre clearly going for the tan theme; why not just get a good tan pistol grip and carry handle?

    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, ive got a small arsenal actually. Loading a big m29 revolver feels uber masculine whe5her spring or gas, and the tri shotties- mainly m4 super 90 tm clones are just vicious Speaking of revolvers that a8rsoft armoury place are flogging asg zastava gas m29 revolvers for 30 kwid...hate to ask the obvious but are these 5hings or worth a punt? In all my collection though the only competitive thing is the agm mossberg I got. Its the big full stock one- and its destined t o be an m16 Mod 0 heavy barrel-masterkey combo.
