Building up a gun...

22 posts in this topic

Hi,

I will be making my own 'custom' gun (as in putting the parts I buy together myself etc.), will I have to two tone the body as my parents are NOT UKARA registered?

Sorry if this is common question, I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks,

Albert

As most people make their custom guns M4 based, if this is the case PLEASE PLEASE, get a clear body.

 

It's so much more tasteful than a two tone.

Do you know where I can get one from?

Nope, but try to get one if possible.

Maybe second hand from someone who's CA sportline is broken?

Bit of a grey area really. To be honest you're manufacturing a RIF if you don't do the transparent bit and no one has any guarantee that you will two tone it for yourself. It's like shops selling RIF's and saying "oh by the way, give that a quick spray of a bright colour when you get home just so that we're all legal" - doesn't work like that.

You'll probably be best off spraying the receiver + stock/hanguard. Just to be on the safe side.

The same still applies. If it's obvious you're ordering bits to assemble a gun then it's just going to look like a RIF, saying "I will be spraying the receiver green" isn't anything solid.

 

As much as I can see you are a regular airsofter, you're only option is for your parents to buy you a 2-tone (with none of your money going into it) from what I can see.

Admittedly, a huge grey area, but if you don't buy all the parts in one go you won't need a UKARA number.

 

Don't think I'm advocating avoiding the law though, I'm not.

Well its a very grey area, of the law.

Technically yes, you can but keep it two toned- upper, lower and stock should be fine.

Spray the receivers before assembly though

Saying that, I.wouldn't advise it

or even ask the retailer to spray the parts for you?

 

Like Cerbo said, if you can source some Clear body parts, you'd be onto a winner with that. try looking around forums for old clear parts that people replaced once they are UKARA'd

I wouldn't bother.

 

ICS are notoriously incompatible with everything.

 

You'll need to modify 99% of your parts to fit it, and probably not worth it at all.

what you can do albert, is...actually they mentioned everything. um

 

Basically

Before assembly, get Jason, to spray all parts or source all the parts inc. the clear body, if not, buy the clear stock and pistol grip then look for as much clear things to use as poss! And then possibly ask Cerbo to fit it, as he can do it properly without screwing everything up (Hopefully including my 416...if not i want my money back, which probably wont be needed but yeah :lol::P ) and that way you have a nice new gun, as you said, just get G&P parts and DEFINITELY Tokyo Marui because they are just too amazing, CA parts would be great and to keep it running good, i tell you now, ditch G&G parts :P

If he'd been listening to Marksman that much, he'd just be saying "Don't worry about the internals, as long as it's not G&G but just paint it OD."

 

Or something like that. :D

I like EOtechs though ;)

 

 

Well, I don't like 552's. But I like a few of their models, they look nice and they're somewhat practical. I've had their 551 and 553 so I should know :)

 

Though I do want a real steel one, that would be something :D
