Recommended Posts

Hey guys quick question, I'm putting together a Block II ish rifle and I was trying to figure out what Iron backup sites to use. Any impute is greatly appreciated

 

I've got KAC's on mine as well. I believe an MA-Tech rear is also good to go.

Here's my plain KWA with a new G&P TD grip thanks to beta!

And soon hopefully thanks to Piano Black, it'll start looking like this:

At least similar to that. Block II inspired, but I'll add some of my own flair.

Hey guys, although I also have a kwa m4, I'm just posting my TM M16a2 right now, mainly because I need some opinions: tmm16a2.jpg

I'm thinking of "modernizing" her externally, and want to see if everyone here likes/dislikes the ideas I got in mind :).

Magpul PTS MOE hand guard to replace the stock hand guard:

MagPul PTS MOE M4/M16 Rifle Handguard ( Black ) by: MagPul PTS -

I would remove the front sight off my barrel. I would also would never use the bipod; rarely ever use it anyway.

 

Either a full new metal body, with RIS style upper receiver, or just a plastic RIS style upper receiver. This is so I can mount the scope much lower instead of way up on top of the rear sight. I would prefer the metal one obviously, but I dont want to spend as much as a new gun on this project, so I'm thinking about my budget here as well :3. I think I'd prefer the new lower regardless if I go metal or plastic,because iirc my TM did not take M4-Pmags the last time I tried it, and that's something I'm hoping to transition to in the near future. Only my KWA did.

 

Next, the stock. I wasn't sure what I'm doing with this. I'd be fine keeping the stock one, as I'm being conscious of money here. However, if I can afford a newer one,I want the battery to be in the rear in the stock, whether its my 7.2, or a full size nimh battery. I'm fully open to suggestions here. :)

 

Last but not least, if budget allowed, I'd get a new pistol grip.

 

P.S I would keep all the stock TM parts so I don't lose the value of the gun. Duh.

first id say figure out how mch you want to spend and what you want the MOST?

 

right now, on Redwolf w/ the sale you can pick up a G&P metal body for 115-120 shipped pending on if they have the one you might like (not sure if want A or B version if going to still use a full stock; so some Q-in here); but it seems thats something you really want. Front ends you can do a lot w/ but do range in $$$ , The MOE isnt bad (not my fav), but is good for the price and w/ the GI sale u'd be picking it up for like 40 bucks

 

as for stocks assuming the 7.2 is a lipo ; you could also pick up a PRS or UBR (granted are 150 or so) and put that in the buffer tube

If you use a drop in hand guard such as that MOE you must have some sort of FSP set up. You could keep the fixed sights, get some fip up gas block sights, a low profile gas block, or a railed gas block. Personally, I'd get a gas block with flip up BUIS. That would help with using the scope but still provide sights. Low profile gas blocks would eliminate any sort of back up sighting system. A railed gas block would allow you to mount sights, but they rarely match up with the RIS of the upper receiver. Personally I also think they look dumb.

 

Either a full new metal body, with RIS style upper receiver, or just a plastic RIS style upper receiver. This is so I can mount the scope much lower instead of way up on top of the rear sight. I would prefer the metal one obviously, but I dont want to spend as much as a new gun on this project, so I'm thinking about my budget here as well :3.

Only my KWA did.

 

If you want a new metal body you pretty much have to get a whole receiver set. Most metal body kits out there are meant for one piece hop up designs and would most likely not be a direct fit (metal lower+TM upper/ TM lower+ metal upper). To do this, you'd have to get something such as an ACM kit with two piece hop up design or a KWA set, both of which aren't too easy. I'd still advise getting a whole new receiver set.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong.

I am aware Tm's are two piece hopup designs, which does limit my options. TM and KWA are the only two piece designs I know off the top of my head. Anyone know what ACM's are two piece?

 

Also, thank you for reminding me that the FSP is required to mount the handguard. I'll definitely have to look into the alternate FSPs.

I don't think I could afford it, but does anyone know if the magpul PTS metal body supports two piece hopup? >.<

 

Realistically though, I'm looking at either a JG metal body, or, if it supports two-piece, a madbull one. Third option would simply be a jg or echo plastic body.

Hey guys, heres a visual idea of the TM m16 upgrade project I was talking about. (M16 in its current state is on the previous page). Let me know what you think(I sometimes use a bipod: why I put in the picture):

It partly obscures the front sight but if I really needed to use them I could. Current red dot only allows for a 1/3 cowitness anyway. If it were a real gun I'd go with a X300 but for airsoft I can manage with it like this.

KWA SR-7

Madbull VTAC 9'' extreme battle rail

AMP Compact Red dot

ACM DD Fixed sights

VTAC 2 Point

 

100% chance of it getting painted. Maybe a white light for the 12 o'clock rail.

 

edit: damn, not quick enough :P
