Inline BBMG M249 SAW

Unread postAuthor: nemethj64 » Thu Aug 23, 2012 2:54 pm

So I was in need of a little more modern weapon for air soft considering I have a M1A1 Thompson and a Colt 1911 ( hey I like World War 2 weapons alot). So I decided to build a M259 Saw as a test project to see what I could do with a BBMG. The gun is a complete replica of the real thing aside from a few details that I was to lazy to put on. Its 41 inches long, and three inches wide at the receiver. I used a modified blow gun for the trigger with some brass compression fitting to channel the air to the vortex block which is a few inches away from the pistol grip. The barrel is made out of brass tubing which had the same inner diameter of a old air soft barrel. I made the stock, front grip and the pistol grip out of some scrap wood. I made the sights and receiver cover out of sheet metal, along with the mag. I have yet to test it with a regulated airflow from an air compressor, and after I get it to work I will get an HPA tank for some mobility. Oh, and this is my first BBMG.

This is not my version of it but I based my gun off of The MKII, I liked the stock and extended barrel.

Interesting!

I based this one's outline on the M249 too: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/vortex- ... -t166.html

never finished it aesthetically though.

Have you actually finished yours?

Yep that is the intentional use , did some test firing earlier shoot pretty good, sorta gets a bird shot affect, and I think i need more epoxy on the air inlet due to me moving it to much. Also the plunger was to strong so i will have to work on that some more and its also a pain in the a$$ to load.
