[QUOTE=DarkSamus;20981420]Well I got a lot of time on my hands and an ak74u, are there any interesting mods i can do to it? Like the bolt catch mod. (which doesn't work on the ak74u, because the bolt is too long but whatever)[/QUOTE] You can do a VFC bolt mod to make it go back a bit further. PM if you want more info.
I am thinking of a revolutionary Gun design that worked based on the revolver gas system but has more bb's and is different shaped, I will draw up a model if I can find a free modeling software, until then I will prob be drawing a few sketches. Or the gas can be contained on the gun and then more ammo can be held, then I would have to form some sort of gas delivery or something.

I would love to see this done.
[IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/ammo_design.PNG[/IMG] This is a quick mock-up idea, the grey area is either a gas storage or a spring and rod to push the bb's into the gun, the spring would work 100 times better I think. The empty area with an opening is where bb's would go. [editline]05:53PM[/editline] [QUOTE=Kawaii;20981976]So like a big revolving gas rifle? Sounds kickass man.

Looks like three lines cap'n.
use that imagination. [editline]06:05PM[/editline] Anyone know a good free modeling program?
[url=http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=6510]G&G'S M14 EBR IS HERE![/url] ...and it's $500...
Meh, EBR's aren't that cool anyway. The old school M14's are nicer I find.
I like the erb, as long as it isn't called a m14, the design is nice though. [editline]08:19PM[/editline] [QUOTE=Stupideye;20984108]Meh, EBR's aren't that cool anyway. The old school M14's are nicer I find.[/QUOTE] Second part I agree with. The design of the EBR is cool.

Brand new additions on ASGI don't have info till a while later expect it next week since they are closed and it's a Friday.
[IMG]http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/1671/51062492.png[/IMG] THIS IS JUST A QUICK MODEL OF THE AMMO FEEDING IDEA! A. This is the box behind the loader where the gas is delivered from the gun's tank to the bb's. B. the loading area, ammo is loaded in back of the shell to you and then pushed into the gun. It can be opened again with the press of a release button to the side of it. Yes i know it is a giant rectangular prism, I have no design for the weapon so nothing can be done with it yet.
[QUOTE=BlueSaint;20984662]I like the erb, as long as it isn't called a m14, the design is nice though. [/QUOTE] Oh I prefer wood M14s to EBRs, but it's still pretty cool. [QUOTE=Tyler_Durden;20984944]And there is no info on it.[/QUOTE] Yeah, as above, it won't have any info or reviews for a while. But it had a video a while ago. [url]http://www.youtube.com/user/AIRSOFTGIdotcom#p/u/11/SmICZPG4Bk8[/url] It's all about externals though. You shouldn't buy new guns anyway, unless you're willing to rely on the sole fact that it's a G&G. Wait to see user reviews, which also will probably not be for a while.
If everyone waits for a review, none will come.
[QUOTE=BlueSaint;20985714]If everyone waits for a review, none will come.[/QUOTE] Got $500 sitting around? Go ahead, be my guest.
[QUOTE=BlueSaint;20982449]Anyone know a good free modeling program?[/QUOTE] Well you could try what I use, Rhinoceros 4.0. Their Trial version is the full program, but it only lets you save 25 times. After the 25 saves you can still use the program, you just can't save your work. Think of it like google sketch-up but 100 times more powerful if you sit down and learn it. The software comes with a built in tutorial guide, same guide I went through in class to learn it. The advantage with this program is that if you design your parts correctly, you can save it as a .STL file and send it off to a 3D printer or a machine shop to be CNC cut. [URL]http://download.rhino3d.com/rhino/4.0/evaluation/download/[/URL] It's a good middle of the road CAD program. The student version is priced relatively cheap compared to higher end CAD programs such as SolidWorks (Which can cost a few thousand just for a year license). Rhinoceros doesn't require you to renew each year either and the updates are free. It also features rendering, which is a whole other beast itself to work with to get good looking results. Speaking of using CAD, I got inspired to make a holster for my M6C after struggling with it in last weekends CQB Game. The idea is to make a 1 piece plastic holster, similar to a Sepra, but without the locking system (too lazy to design that). I'll be making loops to run a velcro retention strap through it, making it fairly easy to undo when I need to grab the pistol. As for mounting it, I'm looking into making it compatible with Serpa mounting systems. If this looks like it may be a pain or just not cost effective for me, I'll make some sort of MOLLE adapter for it.

I haven't made models in like 4 years but back in the day I used Milk (And a hacked copy of 3ds max, but milk was free)

Anyone have experience with Soviet-Power? [url]http://www.soviet-power.com/detail.php?pid=1488[/url] I want to buy a Ushanka but I want to know if they're legit before I go about spending 20 bucks on shipping for a hat that possibly won't even fit me.
Well, Google brings up this thread on some other forums warning about them: [url]http://www.red-alliance.net/forum/index.php?topic=3885.0[/url] It seems you often receive something different than what you've ordered. I'm sure there are other sites that are much more reliable to buy a Ushanka from though? [editline]03:45AM[/editline] Like one poster was sent a different type of camo than what he ordered because the size he ordered was not available in the colors he ordered or something. They emailed him with "Hello, Your size was available only for this suit, the difference is very small. Do You accept my offer on free beret or panama hat to your next order? Waiting for your e-mail, Best Regards!" Seems [i]very[/i] sketchy. They send you things that you did not order rather than updating their site to state that a certain size is out of stock. I wouldn't trust that. [editline]03:47AM[/editline] Yeah, definitely don't buy from them. (I guess it is just run by one guy or something?)
This is a pain in the ass. Any place I find that sell these things want 20 bucks for shipping from Russia or some shit, and then they want 20-30 bucks for the hat. I'm not spending forty or fifty dollars on a hat that was originally only $6. FFFff

[QUOTE=L_Dawg;20990637]Tacticool M14s are as bad as tacticool AKs in my opinion.[/QUOTE] I only like wood colored M14s, so I have to agree.
I would take an ebr over an ak any day
On the topic of EBR's: [IMG]http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a61/MGRX/0_12.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a61/MGRX/1_1.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a61/MGRX/2_1.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a61/MGRX/0_1.jpg[/IMG] Edit: also, i'm in a bind. I'm looking for another back up weapon. I found a Echo 1 E90, and a JG AKS74U. Both are metal, and both are $100. I can't really decide which i like better. I'm leaning toward the AK though.
I like the EBR style, just not the fact it is a tacicool m14. I think they should have named it a totaly different name.
well its also called the Mk14
[QUOTE=Marine1st;20996810]well its also called the Mk14[/QUOTE] Lol, same thing. But EBR, or M14 mod 0.
