  1. Western Arms? Prime? Sheriff? What is this? 2008? Reminds me of my old 1911 build before Hicapas dominated the market
  2. There's an airsoft M79 on Thingiverse. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3334987 You could use that for inspiration, make a narrower version, hook up two triggers and put stacked barrels on the front. It even has an extractor. Make sure whatever stops the gun from opening too far is something like a steel insert so when you break it open enthusiastically it doesn't snap in half I also wouldn't worry about using plastic, my friend has an O/U I think it's a Beretta which just has a horrible black paint/coating finish instead of bluing Edit: oh the M79 has a top lever... I guess you'd have to make a post going through the action to rotate a locking latch thing beneath the barrels.
  3. Yeah I just tried. there's just the hold for the bolt that attaches the stock to the body, sadly. I might try shooting right handed, my stance is better and it's less painful
  4. good idea, but i think i'd have to replace the entire stock with lead... my gun weighs like half my friend's Beretta over/under. can't even remember the make/model of mine. it's got a wood stock but plastic pump grip at the front
  5. I inherited the thing so I had to get a section 2 for it and my friends drag me clay shooting quite often. I'm right handed but shoot left handed so although my stance sucks I get better scores shooting left handed. I might try a bunch of 21 grams next time. Every other gun I tried, like my friend's over/under is heavy and has a soft recoil pad but mine weighs nothing and has a solid plastic cap on the stock. bleeh
  6. Aha! yes they look familiar. They were quite expensive last time I looked and the only gun I can use destroys my shoulder so maybe the lighter cartridges would be better. I use whatever cartridges my friends use and apparently they like the heavier ones. My friend's wife uses a 20 gauge I believe which would be way better for me
  7. Is that a Lyalvale Express by any chance? I got given a box years ago for some reason but never used them
  8. that spring Skorpion was an absolute beast. it'd throw .25g's for miles. dunno what kind of witchcraft they put in those things
  9. sadly it doesn't fit on my Maruzen 870, but those guns aren't proper scale afaik. Also, the screws on this mount are at different levels unlike an 870 which look to be about the same level as one another, albeit different sizes
  10. I was after a "real steel" optic and was given this Qwik Point on a random shotgun mount (I'm guessing an Automatic 5?). It's interesting, albeit a bit rubbish. It might look cool on my retro M16 AEG, or I might use it as a spotting scope for my camera
  11. I sold my TM SPAS 12 with folding stock for £50 years ago. Doh. I also miss the PTW retro carbine I made... though I don't miss the shocking reliability.
  12. Didn't see any airsoft stalls this year apart from the shooting ranges which didn't interest me. I did see a Nuprol sign but we somehow forgot to go back to it. Doh. The big modern rifles were cool though and I walked out with a bottle of some awesome apple whiskey and a 1907 Automatic 5

    I'm looking for one of those Maverick bullpup stocks for the real Mossberg 500/Maverick 88 Cheers


  14. I'm shooting re-enactment at an old airbase next month while avoiding paying customers. I'll be using my old DSLR with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens and a thrifty 1.7 50mm if I need it. I'll also have on me at least one 35mm camera for period style photos but also for access to my fast wide lenses. I'll just be keeping out of the way, letting them have their fun. Same applies to game days... Stay out of the way and try not to get shot. Over/under exposure and noise are just things... they don't necessarily ruin a photo.
