pics do work, you only did something wrong posting them here. When we click on your link, the right link opens, but behind the .JPG stands url. Cut that url away, and you can see the pics. Nice ones :D

Thanks SpudStuff.

And yes, the stock is pressurised. I had to remove the grip to drill holes in the back of the grip, then solder on the stock, then re solder thye grip to the 15mm elbow. Pain in the ass but worth the added power/coolness

Looks pretty good. Your idea was reused salad, the whole shape and the pop-off valve trigger.

You should make a gun model out of thin wood and fit your gun into it, that would make it very realsitic looking. It looks cool how it is now though too.

Say, IM, I see you have made a silencer. Does he work, or is it just for good looks ?

Thaks for all the comments guys.

Noname: This whole gun was inspired by Salad's PVC m16. It seemed like a simple enough build, and it sure as hell was.

Atlantis: To be truthful, I'm not too good with wood, but I could ask my dad to help me out with it prehaps...'Tis a good idea.

POS: The silencer works wonders. It dosn't make it as quiet as I would like it to be, due to the fact I cant fit any insulation between the 15mm and 22mm pipe, but it dose the job well.

If you could get/rent a pipebender you could make it look even more real.
Better use PVC for the silencer, easier to obtain in bigger sizes.
You could also use 22mm for the stock.

Overall I like that you reused salad's idea.
