Next was the gun body

I made up a cardboard template at work to get the right sizes for hole for the hopper and charging handle.



I had to make the hopper hole into a slot and cut the top off the charging handle holes so that it was removable.

Then I had to find something to make it from.

This is what i decided on in the end, it is the side panel from a computer case.


So I drew around my temple and we cut it out with a nibler (no photos sorry)

Then I filed the edges straight and curve them.


Then I bent it to shape with a hammer and some blocks of wood in the vice.

I then sanded it and tarnished it with concentrated nitric acid at work (I work in a lab)

I then put the cardboard template inside to act as a buffer between the metal and the gun body.

So all I have left to do it attach it all together.

I got a couple of different types of M5 screws to put through the top of the metal frame and through the cardboard and into the gun body on the top where the current one are.


I plan to drill the hole and then grind the screws down to the correct length.

Then I will put two screws through the metal on each side into the stock adapter and in the foregrip, this will attach the foregrip.



Then I have a scope ring that is sligthly to big to grip onto the barrel that I will probably screw to the front of the foregrip to help it stay on.

So we decided the metal body brought the look of the gun down, so we have mounted the foregrip and left the body as is. Photos to follow.

So we found this old shelf support.


Then I cut it down


Then we cut it down and screwed it to the bottom of the foregrip, and then bolted it to the front of the magazine well with one of the screws and bolts from the quad rail.

We also put a 40mm M5 screw through the magazine well and into the foregrip.




Its a bit of a tight fit for the mag at the moment, but plan to replace the screws with ones with lower profile heads.

Here is the finished gun.


Took it out for a game today, and had some really good comments about it, people recognizing it. Nice to have a one of a kind custom gun.

I like it. How's the weight? It doesn't appear that the extra weight was too significant. Good looking gun!

It has a nice feel to it.

Problem I had was I kept forgeting I had the foregrip. and would grip on the mag well like I used to.

Just wanting some input, looking at buying a hpa tank.

The 12oz CO2 sits just under the stock, and roughly parallel.

My question is what do you think would be better, a 13ci (possibly mounted in or on the stock)

Or a 48ci and remote line?

Keep in mind the 13K's width of nearly 2". I'm not sure how that might conflict with you butt's dimensions.

For the sake of looks, the remote would get the vote; but remotes are one of those love hate things. If you like them, go that route.

By the looks of it, a 13K should fit in the asa as is without interfering with the stock.

Looks like a 13 would fit under the stock on the asa fine
