Re: Another G43

Hi guys! Thanks for the feedback.

The top 3D printed parts are in PA11 polymer but are very sturdy. It's not something I'll be reproducing though as I made this as a one - off specifically to fit over the AimTop SVD receiver. It took quite a lot of fettling to fit one I got it too.

Another G43

So following on from my M1 Garand GBBR conversion, I decided I wanted to do a mid to later war Gebirgsjäger impression. I knew I wanted a semi-automatic weapon, the most iconic of them being the G43 (despite not that many of them being made, about 500k I think). So I knew I wanted a G43 and not an A...

Re: GBBR M1 project

Cheers Andy :)

I ran 7 clips through it last night without issue before the CO2 bulb ran out, so that's a respectable 56 rounds.

Bit apprehensive about seeing what the FPs and the range are like though...

Will be taking it to a range this weekend to put it through its paces before I attend the Bois Jacques game next month.

I've also decided to go with an Airborne loadout...

Re: GBBR M1 project

Oooh maybe. To be honest I was just going to get a repro from At The Front along with the doughboy pack and such.

Re: GBBR M1 project

Thanks Andy. Yes it does indeed fire though I've had to order a low power nozzle for it (my chrono is busted but it's putting .32s straight through the bottom of a coke can...). Loading is done via the top using a WE tube loader which I've cut down and capped off: sketch-1569072116278.png Holds 8 ro...

Re: GBBR M1 project

And some more pictures... Used the bottom of an ICS M1 magazine to cover up the mess of the internals : _20190921_142721.JPG Added a little bit of styrene to fill the gap (which was a result of a mistake on my part when fitting the trigger unit): _20190921_142657.JPG _20190921_142633.JPG I will get ...

GBBR M1 project

Hi everyone, Thought I should probably post up my M1 project to make a gbbr M1 from a WE M14. I used real parts where I could, which include the stock ferrule, upper and lower handguards, lower barrel band, buttplate, sling swivel and plate screws (which I'm still waiting on!). The buttstock and gas...

Re: Spray paint or "blueing" ??

I agree with Andy's method of using a grey primer (acid etching stuff can be great) and misting with matt black over the top. Rub it down either with or without the compound (depending on how shiny you want it) and bingo: parkerized parts! The beauty is that you can always try again if it goes a bit...

Re: M14 to M1 Garand

If the offer is still there, I'd be interested in a cylinder assembly :D I'm almost done fitting the receiver/barrel assembly into the stock parts and I was going to buy an ICS cylinder set but I'm put off by how oversized they are compared to the real ones (and since the rest of the metal work I ha...

Re: M14 to M1 Garand

Cracking work there! Do I spy the gas cylinder in white there too? How did you fabricate that?
