Recommended Posts

do what im doing (exact same shotty), and butcher an MP5 handguard to fit!

 

ive chopped one down and mounted it, just need to finish some cuts and blend it all together with some milliput.

i got the idea from anzriptide i think:)

Is there any progress?

double post, sorry, but too late to edit :)

 

pics as promised!

 

first, the MP5 forearm. i wasnt bothered about butchering this, as i got it for a tenner, as it didnt work. £4 later, i had 2 new bulbs from fleabay! yay!

 

as you can see, ive roughly radiused the top, one side is for the mag release on the gun, and i just did the other for symmetry.

what its going on

positioning

it turns out this was a bit high, if i wanted to keep some material for strength, so i lowered it a bit

check fit for the torch

i cut some of the bottom out, and heated it to mould it around the forearm, and then filled it with milliput. no pics of the cutting im afraid, i forgot! this was taken after i attacked it with a sander and files

the bottom, showing where i cut out and filled

as you can see, its far from finished, and a bit of a lash up, but its very comfortable. a bit more filing/sanding, and then i'll spray it and fit the torch :)

aznriptide859 that looks seriously amazing. Seriously considering this on my M3 (once I've bought it back off the guy I sold it to :S). Looking at the pictures you just grafted the light part of the mp5 handguard onto the normal M3 grip?

This thread needs back to the top.

Got a tri-rail for free with a parts gun,so,why not? I added a nice comfy grip and presto.

Now I just need to stop pissing all my money away and actually buy that folding stock to complete this. :P

And a recent adquisition,actually cobbled together from two parts guns.

Now taking suggestions on a good torch for the tac jobbie. :)

Pretty blasters! ^_^

Regarding the torch, a Streamlight TLR-1 or Insight M3 on the bottom rail in front of the vertical grip could work quite nicely I think.

Thanks for the compliment. :)

I have an ACM M6 that I might throw on there for *suitcases* and giggles later on,but I was thinking about a nice torch for this gun,since it is probably the only accessory that will ever see those rails aside from a grip. In fact I dont know why I didnt throw it on there for the pic in the first place.

Totally forgotten how long I've actually owned this thing, but I decided to give it a lick of paint and finally get it posted up.

 

 

Nice paint job. I've been after one of these for a while to no avail...jealous!

Looks very cool! Can you post some side-pictures? You dont happen to have a Surefire M900, M910, or something alike, do you?

^ I'll try to post side photos soon.

 

Sorry, I don't have an M900/910, but I thought of using that before. Tried a vertical grip though but because the DE shotgun is hard to rack, using a vertical grip only made it more cumbersome to do, same could then be said about the M900/910 on it so I settled with the AFG and installed a G36C short rail on the pump's side to accommodate a replica scout light in the future.

Thanks mate, I'd imagine they'll be back around soon enough since a fair amount of other chinese stuff has been popping up recently, I think there's quite a few people after one of the DEs from what I've seen around the forum, I'd quite like another myself actually.

Really liking the RIS'd up pump neilgoth, I guess the side rail was a straight 'drill a hole, nut and bolt' sort of job, but how did you go about adding the bottom rail for the AFG?
