I'm finally going to do it, QB78 PCP mod! progress log.

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets.

Very pretty isn't it, some more views.

Many bullpup conversions one sees are functionally cool but aesthetically are a case of doing it wrong.

Rifled semis probably could be imported, but no RFDs are willing to try and find out.


Apparently the homegrownSkan series (very much on my "to buy eventually" list) was originally made a semi-auto at the 12 ft/lbs limit but was converted to grip-pump action after a "strong recommendation" by the Home Office.

I'm quite sure that many have tried to import FX semis and failed for the same reasons.

I've heard similar tales. There are a lot of things in airguns that are maintained by what are officially known as "gentleman's agreements".

Or more in more truthful words: "It's legal, but if you try to do it, we'll make it illegal."

So... blackmail really.

Good old England :) but at least your restrictive laws result in low levels of crime :roll:

I can't understand that really... it's ok when you're an imigrant or something and you can stab someone but no one can have semi auto airguns...

it reminds me of Poland.... a country when you need a license to buy a real gun

Same here..

Building will start next week or so. I need to gather some stainless for the valve.

Cheers!

ohhh sorry I shouldn't put it like that... it's not that I have something against immigrants...

I meant that any thug can beat, club or stab you to death... and either they won't catch him or he'll get a short sentence

but if you use a gun or an air gun in self defence then it almost sure that you'll end up in prison

@Jack: There are so many laws, I think you must break at least five by simply waking up in the morning.

Very nice! What did you polish it with as it is very shiny? Any idea of how much pressure will be used? On that note is it going to have a mag or be a single shot repeater?

edit: forget the polishing part i just answered my own question.

Yeah, it's that important.

I polished it with a Carbide cutting tool. :) (I did not polish it at all.)

The pressure will be 200 bar, or 3000 psi.

I am thinking about a mag but I have yet to come up with a good design for it.

I am also optimizing the valve for optimal flow.

Hope that answered your questions. :)
