i agree aluminum is overkill but my other hobby is melting and casting scrap aluminum (not cans) so i could put my 2 hobbies together and make something cool. i have the tools to machine it (im dying for a metal lathe btw). just drill 3 holes in the Al block just as u would with a bondo block. i've already got the block pattern made out of foam and going to cast it in a day or 2, no use in stopping me now! :twisted:

if u wanna know how this is done go to my other website.

I'm actually making something like this for my next realistic looking BBMG, except for one big difference. Mine will be a clip fed inline vortex. Great work, though, I really like it. Very clean, and looks very nice.

thx Boomer, cant wait to see yours. btw i have the idea of using one of those co2 tanks from walmart (the long skinny silver ones about a foot long that comes 2 in a pack, not the little ones) but i need a small regulator. make it where i can screw it in the bottom of the handle and it would look somehting like a clip.

Noname~ Not sure what you are talking about with Alum, its a rather easily machined material, if you know the correct tooling and machinery to use. Granted, plastics are easily machined, but Aluminum can me machined to extreme precision, as long as you take in thermal expansion.

I built some of the first Vortex blocks of Aluminum in the beginning of the Strafer developement, and found it to be a rather durable block material, you simply had to use a harder alloy. Plastics are great though, if you use the right matierials (Anybody tried Lexan yet?) so its not that I'm knocking on them, just saying that Aluminum is a great material too.
