me and a mate decided to spray his VSR. IK it isn't very good, and because of the crap camera + crap photos + crap lighting, you won't be able to see very much, however he is adding some more tan to it, and then I will be able to take a photo of it properly. Also sprayed a crappy l85 springer, looks alright now...

 

used this to get the krylon to stick properly

light sanding, probably not very good

Hes thinking of doing the barrel and scope, but still not sure. You can't really see the camo in this picture, however it does looks good in person, and hes going to add more tan to break all the colours up a bit...

 

the springer l85 finished:

Krylon used:

a grey krylon that helps the krylon to stick better

brown

olive drab

tan

lighter green

The ICS AK-74M and TM Glock 17 as they stand. :lol:

 

Yep - both stock and yep - both two-tone, but both decent performers - they will certainly suffice until I can get my UKARA! Thought there may be no point in uploading these since both are so standard, but it feels wrong that I've been on these forums for this amount of time without uploading a single picture and hey, some people might be interested?! Still think that the AK is damn fine despite the red paintjob on both guns (which is luckily a bit darker in real life due to the lighting of this picture - ta, Firesupport) - although the Glocks current unmodified appearance does take away from the pair's sexyness. :(

 

Anyway, what do you think? Fine choices - yay or nay? :P

Yeah a mate got a 2 tone vsr and it was a darker red irl. I would say once ukara comes through a nice wood kit for the ics, Ian will know about that.

 

That glock needs a Costa slide though, or maybe when the factory gets up and running again a guns modify sai rmr? They are gorgeous, jcheeseright has one. Albeit it a real rmr lol

Cheers mate! Maybe black replacement parts for the red bits when allowed may improve them though! :P

I like the red.

It's oh so wrong but I actually quite like the red AK too :wacko:

ICS AK's are not parts compatible with TM/clones or VFC/LCT/clones but they do make a wooden furniture kit for their own AK-74's and the finish on it is lovely (although it's not the right colour for Russian AK's). Otherwise it's the dremmel and, in that case, you may find it cheaper to buy real steel (if you see what I mean) furniture to work from rather than airsoft parts (except the pistol grips - real ones can fit onto GBBR AK's but not AEG's).

 

You do not have to wait for a UKARA number to convert your IF into an RIF. The defence applies to you so long as you are an airsofter. You should never have your guns uncovered in public outside of an airsoft site anyway and the very fact that you are there at a site airsofting means you are covered, so if you want rid of the red, get rid of it.

Cheers for the info, Ian. Maybe it's time to start researching how to do a weathered paintjob then, though thinking about it, the wood kit does sound very tempting indeed.

 

So yeah, sounds like it's time to start looking around for ICS bits :D

go over to the elite shooting center I believe its called, http://www.eliteshootingcentre.co.uk/

 

send him a message, he might be able to get one.

 

or import one

 

http://www.uncompany.com/pageproduct.asp?L3catid=290

 

thats a lot of money though, once the tax and import is added on. Personally my favourite is the AS SAI xdm slide, that is so beautiful, but i'm dreaming... or an infinity hi capa

Yeah, however the guy selling the sai xdm said he got the slide from Mike or whoever there, may be worth seeing if he could get one for you. Also ask red Wolf maybe? Always worth a try but tbh you lol probably have to import either way... Unless you can find one second hand which is doubtful.

Mike Cripps is the operator of ESC however ESC specialise in 1911 and HiCapa parts and custom work. That's not to say matey boy didn't buy something different from Mike himself.

Don't hate on the susat, it was collecting dust.

I had a SUSAT on my L86 Carbine where it fitted directly to the gun and found it to still be so much higher than the barrel that often I'd be shooting the dirt when prone and also had to have my head considerably higher presenting a larger target for those shooting at me. It must be even harder with that set up mate. Guess if you don't go prone too often it isn't such an issue tho :-)

 

(not hating on the SUSAT btw, just a comment on practicality)
