You have a lathe, upgrayedd!

I milled the bolt on my WE SCAR to make it lighter. Apart from increasing pressure I don't see much room for heavy machining, their valves are actually good looking and reasonably efficient.

I forgot to mention, we also have the WE AK-74UN, "888" (HK 416) and "PDW" (KAC 6x35) GBBs and they really are nicely made. The prices are in the $500 range though.

I'm basically choosing between WE hk416 or G&G... The difference are 40 euros. I'd go for WE if it's for myself, I'm just considering G&G because I'd like to mod their mags as well so I can expand my market around here.

I've been doing that for years. It's always jillssmokingrabbit, jocksstonkingrebate, jacobsspecialrecipe or something like that.

I wonder what really fast repeated sparks in slomo look like??? hmmmm

Have some metal cutting sparks:


(No, I wasn't actually cutting in the dark. I can see in a lot less light than the camera can at that shutter speed).

Wyz, I really don't recommend you buy a G&G GBB. Grab a WA Magna series GBB, King Arms make a nice one. Built one a few months ago.

The only king arm I found is a m4, I'm looking for a hk416. Their mags looks very similar though...

All WA Magna mags are interchangeable. Not to mention WAs have the hardest blowback on the market. A few upgrade parts and it'll be brilliant. You can shortstroke the BCG for higher RoF too.

I had ideas some years ago which revolved around cutting lands from a smaller diameter pipe, and then fixing them in place as appropriate for the materials in question (glue, cement, solder, take your pick), but haven't ever actually bothered to try the technique.

It'd probably be rather fiddly to get right, and there's not a lot of times I've actually really needed things to be rifled.

Still, maybe one day.

I remember "rifling" a piece of HDPE tube back in the day with a dowel and nails,it well worked as expected as it wasn't very uniform or deep.Had large "hills" and "small" valleys probably not the best for soft projectiles,nothing to bite into.

Many ways to skin a cat,or shape the inside of a tube.Not so much the factor of it needing to be done as much as a personal endeavour to make your own rifled Barrel that actually works!

Well it does seem that it's coming along,lots of ideas floating around.Acid etch is a good idea in theory but sounds like a b*tch to apply in practice.Nail polish and a guide/twist rated painting tool would work but again,theory and practice.
