Candyman

My WA2000 (for anyone that hasnt seen it)

Recommended Posts

Im not big into airsoft, i like it and all its just not my whole life. Ive got a WA GBB and a MP5 that hangs on the wall looking scary but I dont very often actually shoot them, in all honesty prolly once a year or so. So anyway I looked at buying an asahi WA2000 about a year ago but just couldnt bring myself to part with the £2k for it so I passed on this once in a life time opertunity. I was thinking about making one but dint have enough time until recently. Im pretty good with that sort of thing but the wood parts were worrying me a bit, metal im ok with. I make radio controlled monster truck chassis mainly but I was looking to have a break from that for a bit and spend a couple of months building this instead.

 

If anyone wants to see my truck work www.ukmonsters.co.uk

 

Im not going to post all the pics, I have about 200 odd on my site so if your really interested have a look here Candymans Airsoft WA2000 Build

 

A few stats for you:

 

Time to build: 222 hours

Cost of gun parts: £255

Cost of accesories: £150

Weight of gun: 6.4kg

Barrel length: 650mm

 

I made it entirely from pictures obtained on the web, mainly the black and white side on view I have on my site, the only dimention I had is the 905mm overall length, i scaled everything from this. Tools were quite limited, I have a pilar drill, apart from that the basics, vice, hacksaw, files, dremel, stuff like that.

Candyman, that is awesome!

 

I was wondering if you know what the FPS is? or perchance, the effective range?

 

I think i read a topic about this project somewhere, and it was saying that if you put a longer barrel on a GBB, than the FPS increases. I was wondering whether the FPS has rised at all?

Thank you all.

 

Not sure of the fps yet, it seems strong, I now have a higher flow valve to get more gas out per shot, i think this will help due to the mahoosive barrel. When i get my hands on a chrono I will let you all know.

 

As for building another, probably not, this was 222 hours start to finish. Even at £10 an hour + materials that £2500 ish. I didnt plan to sell it or build another really, i just wanted one!

It is beutiful mate, really nice.

 

Thinking of doing the same thing (well GBB base) to make a Dragunov, as im pretty handy with wood as well. Can't wait to get the figures, may lead me on to a career of sniping in airsoft.

 

Again mate, great work, it looks great.

That is simpy amazing. Great work!

 

I have a question. Are you still using the GBB magazine? Or do you have a custom magazine for it? I see you machined the magwell, but there doesn't appear to be the mag for it in any of your pictures.

nevermind, awsome rifle, I would like one :)

EDIT:is it possible to put a V3/V2 gearbox in it? or a M14 gearbox? I just like electric over gas
