Hi, everyone! Iâ€™m new to the forums and Airsoft.
I am currently building an Airsoft AEG modeled after a picture of a concept Hk G38. Using solid works I have almost completely designed the gun out of sheet metal. I have already reached my budget which was a low $100.
This build will include
-Complete 5052 Aluminum water-jet cut sheet metal body
-Stock Version 6 gearbox, to be upgraded
-Stock CYMA M14 barrel and (modified) hop up
-Any cap m4/16 mags
- 3 five inch weaver rails and 1 eight inch rail
-Semi and fully auto selector similar to an AUG
-weight of around 10lbs and a complete length of 32.5 inches
This starts the official build
Guess what came in the mail!
An aluminum tube!
My outer barrel
Just my band saw to some metal in the garage to make up a quick mag release and check my math and leverage. Itâ€™s decently hard to depress, so I donâ€™t think my mags will fall out.
The screw in the middle is the fulcrum and is conection to the gun (in this case the vice). The piece of aluminum is not actually connected to the center screw, only through the piece of spring steel.
In locked position, (the nut on the right representing the tab, that would normally hold the mag in place).
In pressed position, the mag now free (sorry for the glare).
How would I apply/make markings or decals?
