. I'm just waiting on a new Gearbox shell from AK2M4 (much credit to Pete, good guy and great site)  to put the gearbox back in after my other two shells both have selector plate issues.
 
The gearbox is going to be a ZCI microswitch shell, built to DMR spec as per "the guide" but to 350fps and retaining full auto like a real Mk12. I'm going to run it standard for a while before deciding on an AB mosfet or a MERF 3.2 and how it will wire into the microswitch trigger.
 


before you fit all the gearbox components to the ZCI shell put the 2 halves together and check the fit of the hop unit into the front, its almost certain you will need to file a small amount away to get a good fit. I only say this as I didn't first time round and had to dismantle the entire gb in order to correct it and then thoroughly clean out the filings.

The microswitch is a standard electrical component which you can get quite easily from places like Maplins if need be. However note that it is wired so that it fires when the actuator bar is REMOVED from the pressure switch (rather than it having to press the switch as in Ares guns), no biggie, just seems a bit "huh?" until you realise its a clever system that prevents half cycling as juice goes to the motor until the actuator returns to its correct position, presses the switch and cuts power. It works very well. Got 2 of these boxes and not had any problems despite neither having mosfet fitted. :)

So the Kobra red dot I bought on the 20th, from dualdealshop on fleabay, turned up from Hong Kong today (actually yesterday now it's past midnight, so the 24th) - 4 days woohoo! I had to disassemble the whole side of it to get the dovetail side mount thingumajig on to the side of my AK, but for £47.50 i'm well pleased. The alternative reticule shapes look pretty decent (in a faux-Soviet way - ie like space invaders) and the brightness control produces noticeable results with each step, so it has more settings than 'so dim it's pointless, still too dim to use, nearly bright enough, bright enough but runs the battery down in 3mins flat'. Here it is on Morena:

excellent pictures! AK thread?

 

 

Okay, I don't actually take delivery until 28th Feb so these are not my pics, but my Owen gun is finished!!

Meet Evelyn:

DSCF3025_zpsm8jfd19z_1.jpgDSCF3028_zpskb1xdga6_1.jpg

 

This earlier photo shows how she strips down for storage:

DSCF3011_zpsh0w6qzeh-1.jpg

 

Internally it's an ASG Sten Mk2 with a modified hop up.  That means a modified ver7 gearbox.  It takes MP40/Sten magazines.  The entire hopup/barrel assembly can be removed using the barrel release catch, as you would on the real steel gun.  

The Owen gun was the Australian equivalent of the Sten or the M3 Grease gun.  It featured a vertical mag as this allowed mags to be changed whilst prone.  The Sten also allows easy mag changes whilst prone but a mag in the side of the gun makes it more likely to catch on vegetation.  A vertical mag also improves feeding.  Unlike other submachine guns of it's era, it has the cocking handle in a separate section of the receiver from the bolt.  The bolt will jam if dirt gets to it and the slot for the cocking handle is the most likely place for this to happen.  This is the reason for the removable front end, as to strip it you have to take the bolt out from the front.  In trials it was pitted against the Sten, Thompson and some german submachine guns, after immersion in sand and mud only the Owen would still fire.  The design was not as cheap and easy to produce as the Sten, but Australia was in a very different position to the UK in that they were more self sufficient in terms of raw materials and their factories were not getting bombed.  

Incidentally Evelyn Owen was the guy who invented it, hence my choice of name for this gun.

I think you just won this thread!

 

makes me wanna start a build! :)

I had a similar issue with my ICS AK hicap, threw it against a tree and bob's your uncle.

No mate got it second hand a couple of weeks ago, but i would imagine it originally came from him.

Here are my 2 so far:

First up is a bog standard L85A2 with Susat:

IMG_2090.jpg

Before anyone picks me up on it I know the front sight pillar needs to come of :)

 

Second Rifle is an F88 Austeyr: 

IMG_2088.jpg

IMG_2089.jpg

Note i've only created the Original or A1 version of the rifle Thale produced by using a TM body and a Beta Project F88 Flash hider. 

Here is a good comparison picture which shows the difference between a Thale AUG and the original Austrian version: 

49469429.jpg

They are both carbine versions hence why the barrels a bit different. Unfortunetly I lost the Gas Block on my rifle falling down a hill which is why you cant see it in the pictures of mine :/

What I would really like to create one of Thale's A2 variants: 

download.jpg

Converting an airsoft A2 receiver should be possible, however no one sells the dam things separate so I have a hunt on my hands.

The A1 works nicely for me though as the NZ armed forces used DPM's, MK6 helmets and various forms of british webbing but, ironically enough due to the uselessness of the L85A1, they still use the F88A1s still to this day.

Got a Rogers SuperStoc, Safariland torch, Safariland Single Point Harness & Adapter, some generic green laser sight with a pressure pad, a B&T tracer unit/silencer, and a short DBoys M203 on this gun.


Also included is a pic of my gun bag with my primary, the Raider, as well as my secondaries; a WE P226 and G17. My backups there include two ACM guns, an MP40 (really going along to chronograph, won't use it) and a P90.
