Wastelander- a gas-operated, semi-auto APS shell shotgun feeding from Saiga magazines, and with interchangeable barrel length. Full build log here.      

Couldn't be happier right now.

Big thanks to Kalashnikov_kid for showing me it was possible, and Renegadecow for helping me find one for sale.   Another Denix coach gun conversion, this time using Goblin shells, to replace my Hwa

I have a problem.

 

I bought the TM shell carrier to go on my breacher. My shells are all old ASG ones from way back when I bought my first shotty.

 

The labels on the shells have perished and come off, so I took some wire wool to the crusty leftover glue to clean them up a bit. The problem is, without the labels they're a touch too loose.

 

Does anyone have any templates for labels I can print? Or am i better off just using some sticky back plastic to bulk them back out?

Tape the inside of the carrier. Duct tape, or as you say, sticky-backed plastic. Don't use electrical tape, it's rubbish!

 

It's a poor do though if the labels contributed to the thickness... Sorry to hear that :)

ACM M500

 

Originaly the pimping chrome version with faux wood. Refinished the "wood" to look better and painted the metal work. Used paint effects to simulate wear and rust. APS 2 barrel and hop fitted for mental spread and some more range.

Got any pics or guides on how to install a hop up in an ACM m500?  I plan to exactly that to mine and I want to know how others have done it.

I have a tm that I waited 6 months for.

Doesn't shoot for *suitcase* on duster. On gg its better but I get only 2 bbs on 3r and 5 on 6r.

 

On duster I get 3-4 shells at around 260 fps. Not sire on the gg fps as I ran out of gas.

 

I'm so disappointed that the great marui company would send this out to be sold off.

Be sure to lube the o-rings with light oil adequate for rubber. The easiest/quickest would be to take the stock off and spray just a squirt of oil through the top intake. Assemble and shoot 4-5 times, then fill the tank properly and give it another go.

I got my hands on an Apple Airsoft M1887, imported by 6mmProShop. It's a clone of the old Marushin M1887, in 6mm. Out of the box it was pretty junky but after doing some internal work it functions much better, and externally I buffed it with graphite and re-stained the wood.

 

Before:

Still needs Tung oil to finish the wood, and I need to manufacture about fifty shells since the ones it came with aren't for sale anywhere. I don't know why they designed the shells to only hold 3 BBs at most, they could easily be drilled out to hold 9 BBs like the Maruzens, so I'm going to emulate that design with the shells I build and boost the power so I can get 9 BBs per shot at ~330fps.
