Building My First HPA DMR (Surprise, It's a Kc02)

What a journey. I thought you were thorough in the capa, mate these are insane!

Thanks Steve, still love the Capas but something about the 10/22 design had piqued my interest. The fact that the KC02 is secretly a 30 year old Tanio Koba design pushed me further down the rabbit hole.

 

The mechanism is so amazingly sensitive. Things like the factory paint on the disconnector affect the cycling! It’s the perfect platform for a tweaky obsessive.

On the tweaky weirdo note, matching load outs? 

 

There’s an AEG in one of those photos but something full auto, HPA and blowback is being worked on to replace that

I’m very excited. Finally managed to find one of these Tanuki HPA adaptors. Now I’ve just got to patiently wait for it to get here from the states

Now comes the magic of just slapping an MP5 mid cap into the KC

Suddenly the 11 MP5 mags I’ve got start to make a bit more sense

So that HPA mags adaptor arrived. It’s only gone and changed my life. 
 

Gone is the heavy, cumbersome drum. In are the dinky 65rd aeg MP5 mags. The adaptor is extremely tight fitting in the magwell leading to extremely good consistency, I put about 50 rounds through the chrono on my DMR build and ended up with a deviation of +-3fps! I’ve put the Rogueworx Steel bolt assembly in that gun and the noise it makes it essentially porn. 
 

I’ll take some photos today and, if I can work out how, a cheeky video of how loud the DMR build is and how quiet the Sniper

Tried out Rift Abingdon over the weekend. Amazing site but I’ve never experienced so much poor sportsmanship and god-mode warriors. One chap took one right to the cheek, shook his head and went straight back to returning fire?! A few times, I thought of the amazing words of The head Marshall at my normal site “They’re not cheating, you’re just shit” - so I went to the range to test my gear a few times to make sure I wasnt just missing. Hearing the ring of the steel targets, Im convinced I wasn’t the issue. In the end, I got fed up wasting heavy ammo on people who wouldn’t call hits and played with pistols instead.

 

Oh yeah, a traveller stag do also promised to knock out one of our groups teeth in the car park for throwing pyro. 
 

Interesting site, definitely has potential. Bumped into a few familiar faces who play there regularly who’ve assured me they’ve never seen poor sportsmanship like that there before so I’m going to give it another go on the 6th Feb. If anyone else is planning on being there, hit me up!

Edit: yes, I’m really quite short

As I’ve got a custom outer barrel being made for this KC and I was really bored, I cut down the stock outer and wrapped it in vinyl.

 

Stubby, full auto build is coming together

Eleven and a bit weeks of back order and Brownells have just sent shipping confirmation of my Samson Manufacturing B-TM!

 

This thread has taken some odd turns. It was meant to be a straightforward journey; buying a battered KC02, slapping it in a wooden Ruger 10/22 stock and tapping the mags. It’s ended up with three completely different builds that range from dinky full auto madness at 1.1J to single action at 2.32 all housed in RS stocks for the Ruger 10/22 that I’ve picked up off Brownells. The beginning of March should be interesting as I’ll have some custom barrels and a Rogueworx underlever kit to fit. 
 

I wasn’t expecting to find a platform as customisable as the HiCapa when I opened the box on my first KC02. 

I’ve got high hopes that that stubby build for Sunday. Even though it’s only sending at 1.1J, it’s got a VSR style TDC hop unit that’ll lift like the MK23. I can hold 5x130 mags of 0.3’s on my chest so I’ll be in full pewpewpew mode. Hopefully accuracy doesn’t just disappear due to full auto, I’ve heard a lot of people complain about the full auto kits before but I’m sure that’ll be due to cool down and condensation from C02 mags. Not a problem for a Sodastream ghostbuster

Big thanks to the big man Project over at PPT - Project Precision Turning

It’s pretty subtle from this picture, but that’s a 400mm tapered barrel made to mirror the bog standard Ruger 10/22 factory barrel.
