I got mine in today, and got it all dressed up with only a little dremmel work to get the rail on.

I think it looks pretty good for spare parts that I had laying around. I'm gonna get a different rail and go for more of a DMR kind of look but for now I think this will work.

 

Thanks for the stuff about the TDC mod, it doesn't look that hard at all, but I still think I'm going to try an R-Hop before I start drilling anything. Apparently HS5 makes a cold resistant R-Hop patch for use in GBBs. I know someone put one in a TM pistol and another person in a WE SCAR but I'm not sure how it worked out for them.

 

I have had a few problems though, there's something wrong with my full auto. In semi everything works fine but when I try to shoot it in full it shoots 3-4 weak shots and then the bolt jams and a BB or two comes out of the ejection port. If I take out the mag 3 or so more BBs will fall out of the mag well and then after pulling the charging handle a few times and switching back to semi it will work again perfectly. Any idea what's up? It's a used Gen 1 fully upgraded with Cradle parts I bought off Ebay. I'd rather just fix it myself than deal with the hassle of sending it back unless it's something major.

just KJ. There is some company in France, but I don't know how widely available they are.

 

I wouldn't worry about the mags for anything outside of aesthetics and fit in some mag pouches. They are built like tanks.

but are they available for international sale? and $60 a pop....yikes....

 

I can't fit more than one mag in the 5.56 mag pouches on my LBT 1961g.... I ordered a 1961K so hopefully that will fix my problem in the long run. I made these to help in the short term, they are a little rough around the edges but I want to identify potential issues with the design before I invest too much more time into them.

Ouch, shoulda held out on the npas till you read some of its reviews on here first. Supposedly they don't hold out very long.

From my expirience, stay away from the falcon piston ring. It's smaller than the original one and drops your fps because of the air lost.

 

I want to know what people have to say about the Falcon hop up bucking and 6.03 tightbore. Or what about the RA-Tech bucking and 6.03 tightbore. To anyone on this thread please let me know if you have used either of those.

It uses AEG stocks so whatever spec those are

 

Unfortunately aeg stocks vary as well. I can't remember offhand what I have on my kjw currently, but can find out when I get home by comparing w/ my real steel.
