finally got pics of my a-5. i shaved the rear sight and top rail smooth, filled in the name plate and relocated the top bolt (here's a before pic
). the upper receiver was covered with 3m di-noc carbon fiber vinyl in the graphite color. all pics are clickable to full-size:
cqb setup! completely useless lol. stock barrel cut to 4.5", tac-cap, 12-gram c02 drop-out changer with 15-degree asa adapter and a jcs folding stock.
with jcs stock extended.
all business with my trusty 12" j&j ceramic barrel and was e-grip.
close-up showing the pattern in the vinyl. still pictures don't do it justice.
the "ugly" side.
that's all. stock internals, other than a lightweight hammer, spring kit and jcs rva to help tune it and make it more efficient (fva is full-open). receiver halves are polished inside, lo-pro hopper was lined with shelf foam so it doesn't make noise as i run.
