I do really want to build one regardless of my little knowledge. I can only learn through trial and error. That's why I'm on here right ?

If you want to build something custom and do not like to tinker, build an automag. Do some research and go with what fits your budget. If you like to tinker a lot, build an autococker. Do research on that as well. You can make them your own gun with character.

Do you want a pump or a semi? I would say, buy a bunch of CCI parts if you want a pump. The CCI website should help you figure out the project.

You should probably buy a broken gun that you think is cool (this would be cheap too). You could diagnose it and fix it. There would be plenty of stuff online to help you with the process. After you have done that, you may be in a better position to build something custom.

Ahh. Very true. Sounds kinda good. But I have taken apart many guns. I've stuck to mechanical. I think they are a lot simpler. What's a good cool gun to buy broke that I can still find parts for.? Lol. How would I go about buying custom parts for a cool gun ?
