One nice way to run the p90 is to skip the mags and run a box with a flash mag. The internals that you need to replace really depend on the battery that you use.
I plan to build the magwell more or less to the same specs as a normal M4 magwell. This means I could print or purchase a normal M4 mag release, and install it.I see now that you wrote about not having to remove the converter when changing mags in your original post. It's obviously not anything near efficient to make one per mag, I was just putting it mildly based on what I saw in the cad drawing. To address some of your other concerns:
The finished product will have reinforcements just like you mentioned, as well as fillets to present a more professional and finished appearance.
One thing you're going to have to look out for is the strength of the locking lugs. I've snapped the lugs clean off of normal plastic AEG mags, and the plastic is much stronger than what you'll get out of a printer.This is exactly my point. A 3d printer layers plastic, it is not molded. Reinforcing weak points similar to a normal ak mag will result in a shorter expected life than a standard hicap, hence my suggestion to use metal inserts/attachments.
Generally when you remove an airsoft magazine, a few BBs roll out of the hopup, because the follower of the magazine does not push every BB into the hopup.Correct
This adapter is essentially a straw, lengthening that dead space, and will cause a few more BBs to roll out every mag.Correct
Once a highcap is inserted, it will push BBs through the feed tube, into the AK hopup. manufacturing. To include any sort of stopper would add an unnecessary moving part, adding to the cost and difficulty of of manufacturing.If I'm not mistaken, you didn't specify if you are using hi caps or midcaps. If you are using mids, this point is moot other than the fact that you're losing a significant amount per mag as d4rth pointed out.
a member of my local forum though his might be getting a little puffy so he decided to poke a hole in it to let it breathe.Do you think he can provide a step by step for that, maybe with pictures?
