VSC R7 Project

VSC R7 Project
Okay this little mod/project will most likely get me tarred and feathered by some R7 owners, but hey I bought it so why not. Nevermind, so far everyone loves it, and so do I.

First off I was looking for another stock class gun (I had a Phantom for a while but couldn’t love it), I had used bliggity-blackity-black sticks on my snipers and CCM’s but it wasn’t what I wanted. SO when I picked up the R7 I loved the feel and the weight, just trying to quickly change C02 12ies was not easy and I was used to a bucket changer. So I set out to make mine into the VSC setup that I wanted.



Starting off
Soooo due to unfortunate circumstances the R7 won’t have any accessories for awhile, luckily Phantom parts fit pretty well.
Stock class feed, I picked up a one piece CCI feed. Unfortunately it won’t clear the pump handle without ether modifying the handle or the feed. Off to the mills…..




The T-stock, I wanted the ability to maybe use the gas through in the grip one day so I milled the mounting plate of the T-stock to fit around the plug. Plus I kinda like how it looks with the plug in….


Grips, okay I have big hands but I hate big fat grips. The Hogue palm swells were okay, but I just didn’t love them (plus I am going to get these engraved eventually). CCM panels were nice but need some work to fit the look of the gun….

Bucket changer, oy. At first I bought a CCI hardline kit, the mounting won’t work without a lot of modding. Instead I picked up an old direct mount ASA (harder to find then you think) and I had an old bucket changer. Both married up to the frame really well….

Now that everything was modded and milled it was time for re-finishing. I sent the parts off to Caustic Customs for some ano matching. The bluish color grew on me….




I love the feel of it and can’t wait to take it out to the field.

I dig it. Needs a new pump handle that goes completely around the barrel to finish it off. But it looks good.
