Aep Ruger Mini 14

Recommended Posts

Project gun I have wanted to do for years is a Ruger Mini 14. I have an old daisy Springer upper receiver heat shield and gas block, real steel 30 rd mags and a possibly real steal side folding stock. Having gone through so possible ideas AEG gear box and motor are not going to fit, kjw kc-02 would fit but the mags can't fit in a mini 14 shell, HPA would do, but I don't want a line and tank. So I have gone for AEP. I have both types of gearbox and they do fit but  the Glock gearbox set horizontally will fit in the upper receiver. Now my idea is to fit the an mp7 cylinder head fitted with a extended 3d printed nozzle to fit a M14 hop up and to re engineer the tappet plate to connect directly to the nozzle and have the gear that drives the piston pull the tappet plate rather than push. So thoughts suggestions would be appreciated.

You sure a v7 wouldn't fit inside it? The ares ppsh gearbox could potentially fit. Maybe an A&K SVD too. Or even the m249 style gearboxes.

i'm guessing as the v7 is a tight enough fit in a full size m14 that it's a bit chunky for the mini14.

 

i must admit hpa does sound like the way i'd do it, don't even need the gearbox shell just mount the engine where it's needed (i'm guessing an offset nozzle will be better for fitment), you can wire up trigger contacts wherever you want them.

 

avoiding the line and tank is tricky, you can get co2 adaptors that are the dimensions of an m4 buffer tube so feasable to fit if you're not running a folding stock? you'll be a bit more limited on rounds compared to a tank but depending how you plan on fielding it that might be an acceptable trade.

Yeah thats pretty tight, only place for gas i can see would be under the barrel.

 

Unless maybe if your going semi only a mk23? Im that familiar with the internals on those admittedly so not sure how amenable it would be to what your going for.

 

Either that or some serious modding of a gbb pistol mech?

I looked into that best fit would be a we pdw but would have to build s complete chassie to hold bolt and fire group not in my skill set.
