new snazzy armalite!!!

44 posts in this topic

OK, so the plastic body on my much beloved marui M16VN has broken on me, irreparibly (every point that takes a body pin or any stress has cracked off)

 

this leaves me with a prefectly working stock, barrel and V2 gearbox + motor/grip

 

so I will be making use of this opportunity to create the most awesome armalite the world has ever seen....

as such:

 

THIS is my reciever of choice

anything similar would be appreciated (vampires and such would be cool - no marines/blackwater/SEALs)

 

I would like some assitance finding a front end though:

Standard M16 length barrel

ideally RIS, but definatly NOT a stock foregrip thing

If RIS, a numbering system would be appreciated

delta rings and things MUST be included

doesn't need a flash hider As I'll be buying an awesome one instead

£100 upper limit £130 for something special

 

Flash hider, pick an awesome flash hider with 14mmCCW threads and post a pic £40 STRICT limit on that and as 'undiggy' (woodland players will know what I mean) as possible.

Winner gets the flash hider on my rifle

it's a lot to read, thanks if you did though

 

any help like usual is appreciated

 

cheers

Dave

you will be lucky to get a RIS cheap for an M16 :P,

 

http://www.fire-support.co.uk/product/clas...ris-set-for-m16

 

the body alone will set you back ~ £50

 

delta rings are cheap as long you look for the correct type! (has the teeth)

 

You would also need a new Hop-up as the one you have is a 2 piece, i think you will have trouble fitting the TM type barrel.

 

IMHO your better off getting a JG ABS body for like £20 they are still about..........somewhere.

nope, got a full M4 unit on it, completely normal M16 style.

Body I picked is £75+importing from HK

front ends from the same place are around the £100-150 mark

 

for general use:

G&P SR15 URX Front End is almost perfect for the front end I am looking for

nope, M4/16 style full hop up unit

 

and as long as I have 4 figures left in my bank account when I'm done and I get a rifle I am truly attatched to, then I will be happy.

 

You CAN just go and buy a rifle off a shelf and match EVERYONE else's gun on the field.

OR you can spend a bit more, do it yourself, have exactly what you want and have the know how to fix or replace broken parts

I second what bigshep suggested!

 

On topic - The zombie hunter one looks great, although there are a few other 'comic' ones avaliable.

My favourite is a 'religious' one ('miracle', 'devine intervention', 'second coming of the Lord') which has really nice typography (really old scroll-like text).

 

G&P frame IRRC.

 

At some point the future, ICS will release their FNC and FAL - which (the orrigional design from last year anyway) had the screw-thread you were after. The FNC one looks very nice

If you do order from HK and are going for that many things (especially from one place), it might not be a bad idea to make sure you're UKARA is included as it could look like you're trying to manufacture a RIF.

how would I do that, just like ask them to write it on the outside of the package for customs to see?

also done calucaltions

landed and at my door, the pacage will cost £332.60

 

thank-you lovely people at customs -_-

I know the feeling.. <_<

I think you just send the place your buying from an email asking them to display your UKARA number on the outside like you said. Check with Dev he would know.

Best bet is to email them Dave (I can't tell you precisely), they're likely dealing with it every day and will let you know what they require/what they will do.

front end arrived

small problem on the flash hider front - It's a clockwise thread (not the standard for airsoft)

so, do any snazzy clockwise threaded flash hiders exist, or is there an adapter you can get?

OK, so everything has arrived (except the flash hider) and is now fully assembled

Here is the reason why I could not continue with the VN reciever:

 

 

(this will be continued over seevral posts due to image sizes)

 

on the first picture, the 2 parts should be joined together, they support the rear of the gun - snapped clean off.

 

on the second picture id the obvious lack of anything for the front pin to go through, but look at the left hand side, there is a thin black line. That is another crack the runs ALL the way round the barrel.
