Idea for a mag on this design?

Unread postAuthor: Gun Freak » Mon Apr 19, 2010 7:25 pm

Does anybody know how I can make a mag for this design... It needs to be able to be made without machining or anything like that and I don't want it to look ghetto. Thanks

I just made my magazine with a sheet of 22ga weldable sheet metal bent on a brake. For the final angle I put it into a vise and manually bent it. There will be an open edge that could be welded or glued.

I wish I still had all those meccano sets (or rather USSR version of meccano) that I had when I was 6 or 7 yrs old... damn I could use it for a lot of stuff.. inluding creating mags

any idea where can I get these things (cheaply?)

actually, boltsniper (in some later versions) used airsoft mags with all the mechs removed, which has the added convenience of a spot for the mag release to hold onto

As stated, use sheet metal, its easy enough to work with. Or, if you want this looking real smug I would be happy to explain to you how to cast it from an alloy such as ZAMAK, I spent roughly 30$ on this(including furnace, crucible and ALL tools, fuel and metal) and am VERY happy indeed that I did.

I probably won't get to this launcher for a while because I'm busy with some others, but when (if) I do, I will :)
