With a bit on ingenuity and, of course, a bit of epoxy, you can easily conjure up something. Have a look at the one I made here, adjustable for windage.

Ah.. And then i can get a screw at the front of the gun to act as the front peep, and move that up and down for elevation..... Sweet.

Exactly what i was looking for. Although i am still tempted to do the whole red dot sight ordeal......

It doesn't have to be an "ordeal" or break the bank either, have a look;)

Normally I would have to say go with the red dot.. but that sight jack posted would look good.. it would give your gun the finishing touch to make it look a little mad max... or perhaps a little steampunk/madmax.

Well, I found some Bondo, and I finally set to work Bondoing and Painting the thing. So far, I can tell you all it looks freaking SWEET!

I did some reaserch in steampunk style and Mad Max stuff, and for one, I had no idea the "mad max" gas airsoft shotgun was named that after a movie. It just got far more hardcore to me.

As for steampunk, I think styling this gun in that fasion would semi-Suit it, but overall, If it looks steampunk, cool, But it wasnt what i was going for.

Expect finished pics within a few hours.

In that case, you're going to have to hide the piping, build a box structure out of ply perhaps?

Meh, I kinda like it Exposed. Plus, It allows easy acess to the piston. All i have to do is take off the grip and i can simply unscrew it.

Covering it in pipe would be just weired, as it would have to be oddly shapen, and in order to allow the same ease of maitenince as now, I would have to make it look stupid.

I think ill accept the fact it looks steampunk. Mabey buff it a little with my dremel or something.

EDIT: and I just watched the 10 minute chase scene at the beggening..... Im downloading as we speak.......

Cool! :D

Now it looks like one of those storm trooper hand weapons from the original Star Wars.
