If someone wants to proof read this then I would be grateful.

Otherwise I think it's about there.

Nice writeup Iceni  - I have the G3 and its definitely very well put together, not had any feed issues yet with the midcap but the the fps is certainly low.

Just ordered a Gate Titan to put in so will take a peek internally then though not to sure on tappet plate corrections - could you elaborate a little?

Planning to put in a 130 to lift up the fps a bit to  (looking for around 450-475) so I can use this as a true dmr, factory fitted 120's get you to about 430-450 apparently (USA market).

 

Looking for slings now :)

There was no correction, it was a straight swap. The LCT one was visibly warped. The ASG one that replaced it went in without needing any modification.

I got my sling from Zib militaria with the muzzle protector. Wasn't expensive but it looks nice and was in good condition.

Zibs nice n cheep though they have a minimum spend order so if anyone else wants a sling in the UK let me know and I'll order a bunch.

Very tempted to get the real wood fore-grip and stock - you gun looks superb Iceni.

Do it.

It's never going to loose value as a wood kit. So even if you never use it it will still be worth what you paid in a few years time.

Nope I put in a basic mosfet. Xcortech x304u.

I personally don't see the point in a Titan, It's a great device in theory but for me I don't need the features it brings or the install fun.

I run 7.4v 2000mAh 25/50c batteries in the G3. So I'm not pushing the gearbox hard, The basic fet does the only thing I need it to do and that is protect the contacts.

If I want a better trigger response I'll upgrade the motor to a 35K and perhaps looks for a 130+amp battery that fits. That should boost it into the 25rps range. Outside of that all of my gearboxes are pretty basic,  I don't add upgrades that are going to significantly shorten the service period.

If you need Titan specific information you would be better served by making your own thread in the "Electric guns" section.

Ah thanks, Had a late night and got it all sorted out.

For others -  info that might be of use - I used a sharpie to black out the selector plate and then all worked just fine.

I'm also running similar battery though I just put in a 130 spring as I'm pretty sure mine came with a 90 (300fps on .2's  - UK spec according to LCT).

Accurate range now is unbelievable though I think I'm pushing up around 460 fps - will crono later on, motor is getting a little warm.

Luckily not with my local site where there is a DMR limit of 500 FPS /single action/30 yard engagement. 

Very lucky.

 

Whereabouts is this?

Holy thread ressurection batman!

 

What optic mounts would you recommend to ensure that the iron sights are still useable?

For me one of the points of getting one of these is the amazing iron sights.

Depends on your budget and what you like the look of.

The claw mounts are pass through, you can use the iron sights with it on and the scope in place.

The G3/Mp5 low profile rail doesn't interfere with the iron sights, It's the scope rings/mounts that have to be high and of a sight through design. There are higher G3/Mp5 rails and I would avoid those.

The low profile rails are all slightly different, Make sure you get one that allows the scope to be mounted anywhere on it. Some have areas where the scope can not be fitted. Mine is of a type that will allow a scope to be fitted anywhere.

Avoid this: as you can not use a full scope mount.

Have a look on https://www.ant-supplies.uk/

 

They have a good selection of rings and mounts for Weaver/Picatinny rails and it should give you an idea of what will work.

https://www.ant-supplies.uk/scope-ring-mounts/weaver-scope-rings-standard.html

 

If you look in this image you can see the G3/Mp5 low profile rail mounted without a set of scope rings. Your sight view is on the higher back part of the drum so there is plenty of space to use regular sight through rings without needing to modify them. One thing I will say is pick a G3/Mp5 rail that suits the length of scope you are planning on using those rails come in different lengths, so if you are using a long scope that needs a lot of eye relief then get a long rail, or a single piece mount that can be mounted forward of the rail, If you only want to use a red dot/Acog with no eye relief required then a shorter rail will look better. Those rails are cheap enough if you shop about but you may end up paying up to £40 for one that is both low profile and allows the scope to be mounted in any position.

This is the style of the one on mine.
