My automag M14 completed project

It is a classic valved, classic rail'd mag with a 20" tactical tippe'd smart parts all American barrel. It took me four months to complete with a total project cost of about 500 It "was" a tokyo mauri airsoft M14 with all metal parts except the composite stock. The aimpoint dot sight is also an airsoft replica, but.... it holds up on my benelli 12 gauge 3 1/2in mag. It is extremely accurate and close to scale weight. The reciever halves are powdercoated black and the body was hand polished by me.
Every inch of this project was done by hand. No fancy mills or lathes. The most complicated machine i used was a drill press and a dremel tool. I hand cut all of the aluminum and filed and sanded for endless hours. Any more questions please ask.

Classic valve lvl 10
classic rail
old school right body
air through stock
20 smart parts all American
relocated custom bearing trigger mechanism
warp feed. not pictured

here are the pics
please ask questions
and comment good or bad.








and a fairly bad pic of me usin it at a scenario.

Very clean look. Where did you get the airsoft body?

I bought the whole gun on ebay, it was an airsoft gun with a broken gearbox.

That is Awesome work!
The only thing I see that detracts is the tape on the front shroud/forestock area. A real steel replacement retainer might work for that and finish the sheer beauty of your project.
Excellent work!

Have you considered throwing a 90 degree fitting on the rempte nipple? Just to angle it down and back a little to keep the remote line tighter to your body.

i have a 90* fitting on the remote line for that same purpose.

Yea i broke the steel retainer, and cant seem to find another one.i wish i could ditch the tape though, I might be able to rig somthing up.

That is awesome! I am fond of the M14s and this is a great conversion you have done.

My only suggestion would be to long-bow-feed in place of the automag direct feed. Of course you would have to cut it down or use a different body. Some of the airsmiths have made conversions if you don't have the machinery.


Excellent work done with tools around the house!!!!

Looks awesome, but as someone that also plays airsoft I tear up a little to see a TM M14 cut up.

Looks badazz...I do agree about the feedneck though, especially if you are running a warpfeed.
Very nice work, thats a real head turner.
