Re: Airsoft G43

Right now I would rather be waterboarded be the CIA than start another g...

Re: Gun accuracy

I think a good test range is 25metres,pick an evening when the wind has dropped to zero,rest the stock of the barrel.Also the use of a consistent BB will eliminate Ammo inconsistency. I recomend Guarder or ASG devil Blasterboth in .28g. A clean barrel is a good start too.If you zero your sights at t...

Re: Airsoft G43

This will explain my Gearbox,hop and mag mounting idea.I have made a metal frame that locates all 3 together in an accurate way that will allow feeding and accuracy and good air seal. The frame is made from a piece of 18mm wide and 6 mm thick steel plate screwed to the g/box case underneath the cyli...

Re: Airsoft G43

The trigger guard and mag-well surround is another blanked and stamped sheet metal part, designed as so it could be made fast and cheap on the real Gun,it was only in production for around 18 months ,at most and around 415,000 were produced in that time, again lots of hand cutting and filing by hand...

Re: Airsoft G43

Re: Airsoft G43

Some shaping to the top barrel cover, I have milled 2 slots that help barrel cooling on a real firearm.
Also, there is a slot for the sheet metal spring catch that secures the front band in place.

Re: my Bren Gun conversion from ZB-26

You can get 5 Real bren mags over here for £10,but they would be a different fit in the magwell so that would be difficult to modify.

Re: Airsoft G43

Yes I know it looks like a minecraft G43 But when I get my wood plan and rasp on it thing will hopefully get better. That rectangular black hole looks boring but the magwell and catch took some time to make and get set up on the gun,but even though all the mounting screws are not in place it was wor...
