Hi there!

I thik I should steal this topic...

Me interested in MG-15 too... So I searched /google for photos... I found many

Including a nice plan (stormtrooper heavy blaster):

Definetly I would make this one:

Sights are bit funny :D (planned for air/anti-air combat), but easy to make, and effective too...


That water cooled one is as ugly as hell (henece it has much usable sights), and maybe the trommelmagazine is better if using manual high cap or electric feed.

I know my limitations (I made M14, AKM, SV98 woodsets, some fiber glass M14 stocks, including bullpup), so there is no way for me to make it from steel or aluminium (if I want to do it at home). In addition it would be nearly 10 kgs...
The only possibility is make it from PVC (I started to like that stuff while making fake magazine for the SV98).

Printed out and guled together the blueprints.

It will be huge (1,3 meter without the buttsock).
I bought the PVC barrels (6cm diameter PVC tube for the body, 4cm for the ventillated heat shield, and 2 cm for the outer barrel).
Because the grip is at the end of the gun, it could have about 1,2 meter inner barrel... (rofl)
It would be totally useless, so I put just my Marui AK47 internals in. To fix them I incorporate an old CYMA AK body into the 6cm tube (my friend supports the project :D ).

I would suggest using a P90 hopup, as it feeds from the top. It should fit an AK Gearbox with some modifications.
Good luck!

Hop and gearbox will be a least 30 cms behind the mag... Long BB-feeding tube needed, so I stick to AK hop (no benefit, but have bad experience combinating my Marui box with other chabers even I change the nozzle).

First part finished (outer barrel)

I directly want to respond how I make it... but sadly the pattern I printed out is totally wrong... wrong length, wrong width (the ventilation holes are too small too, but it can be justifyed by static reasons). So I have to resize and reprint... before this I make the elese details.
