Hey Ian, which AK versions will that adapter fit? I have an old Cyma CM 028s which I'd like to do something similar with as the folding stock broke so filled the holes in the stock and fitted an AIMS foregrip to a modded front end, hence needs a stock sorting now.

It fits the G&P fixed stock receivers and, I think, King Arms also. It wont go on a CM.028S. You can get replacement under-folding stocks. What went wrong with it, the catch (so it hangs loose)? If so you can replace it with the cheap one from taiwangun.com - the catch is no more nor less robust on the more expensive one (this is a problem i have dealt with using both the cheap one and the steel one).

Ah right, no the arm on the side that latches snapped clean off due to being made of cheese. Trying to avoid the expense of a whole new receiver and stock assembly tbh, and in any case an under folding stock won't work now with the AIMS wood foregrip hence thinking of some sort of M4 adapter. May yet attempt to make one from resin embedded with fibreglass as a specific fit. Cheers Ian.

5.5mm brass tubing -  This is for the manufacture of a brass pull through for my SMLE.  Plan is to cut a length and fill it with epoxy and embed the end of a length of string.  This is instead of having a cleaning rod.  The idea is that you use the brass weight to pull the string through the barrel and the end of the string has a small loop so you can then pull a piece of rag through the barrel to clean it.

Brass coloured metallic Humbrol Enamel - to add weathering and detail to my scope so it looks more correct.  Also to paint the end of the pull through so the epoxy doesn't show.

That sounds like a bad idea to me - you should try your best to minimise the chances of scratches to the inside of your barrel and, even though brass is soft for metal, the barrel itself is not tempered carbon steel - dragging metal through it will scratch it to some extent. Such fine scratches affect range and can affect accuracy since they have a slightly higher friction coefficient than an unscratched polished surface and this affects the stability of hop induced backspin, ie minute fractions more or less spin on either side of the BB.

 

As there is no combustion, you are never going to need to actually scrub the inside, so you do not need to be able to drag a rag up and down the barrel so many times that a string is sufficiently more efficient over a plastic cleaning rod for it to be worthwhile. If you do ever submerge your gun in muddy water you should disassemble it and soak the barrel in hot soapy water and rinse repeatedly until there is no chance of dragging fine sand through the barrel when you use a piece of rag to clean out any oily/greasy residue.

 

The best method is to use alcohol swabs on the end of those plastic cleaning rods with the slot in one end.

I have one of those vests, Flex. They are excellent. Lighter than PLCE, more versatile than SAAV, and more comfortable than a WAS RICAS. IMO £32 is a bit over the odds, but it does look to be in good condition, and those rocket pouches can cost more than a tenner on their own. The horizontal pouches for maglite and pocket knife are exactly the right size for speedloaders :)

About time I got a proper bag for my guns and stopped using a rucksack. It's smaller too so forces me not to carry all the random sh*t I never use on a skirmish but bring anyway.

I would need a 65 cm or longer cleaning rod.  The metal isn't dragged through the barrel, it's just a weight to thread the string through the barrel.  You would then pull the string through with the alcohol swab or piece of cloth on the end.  I was going to use Brass as it would then look like the real steel cleaning kit, kept in the hole in the stock, which is a lot simpler than carting a 65cm cleaning rod around, if I could find one.
