m16 conversion project

Recommended Posts

hi everyone , not been on here for a little while

, just got a new g&P m16a3 looking to convert it in to my dream rifle ,

 

similar to my vltor m16 i sold some time ago if you ever seen that on the gun pic thread ,

 

im looking to make it , metal bodied usmc body from m16 , looking to change out the solid stock to a adjustable vltor /crane style , but want to run lipo in the stock tube ,

 

also looking to get a railed front end with a free floating barrel if anyone knows of any for sale , wanting to keep m16 length

though .

 

so my first question is , do i just buy the standard m4 buffer tube to replace the full stock , and what alteration will i need to do to fit lipo in stock tube , just getting my gear and loadout ready to start playing again ,

any help will be much appreciated

You will need to buy a buffer tube LiPo to fit in the buffer tube. I know there's a 1450mAh on made by WE and they are sold on Land Warrior Airsoft.

Presuming the G&P is already rear-wired, you will just need the buffer tube and shouldn't have to do any other alternations as far as I know apart from converting the battery to Deans connectors. IIRC G&P guns all use Deans as opposed to mini Tamiya plugs which the WE battery will come with.

 

Alternatively you may be able to find a battery small enough for the buffer tube from Component Shop. You can get any battery with a choice of different connections so you won't have to do it yourself.

Yeah it's alreAdy rear wired on a mini type Tamiya connector,

So hopefully the buffer tube won't need adjusting

May have to drill in to buffer tube and have wires external for a few cm , then return them in . Or failing that could drill a hole through the retaining washer I suppose ?

There are a few stock tubes out there which are designed to allow the wiring to pass through, can't link sorry, mainly seem to be aimed at crane stocks iirc so not sure how much space is in the tube itself.
