Any chance you'd ever consider making one-piece Type 96/MB-01 receivers?

looks really nice, good job :)
I like the milling part at the barrel, maybe I will steal that idea from you XD

Iīm currently designing my own airsoft sniper rifle with Cylinder ID25H8 and a Piston travel lenght of about 125mm so I can use longer innerbarrels.

Like you I want to make the Receiver/Outerbarrel out of one piece. But I want to use S355JR so its very stable even if the rifle falls down to the ground or a tank drives over it or stuff like that ;D

But Iīm not sure if steel ist to heavy. Cause if my calculations are right the receiver/outerbarrel part weighs about 2,45kg...

Can you (and all the others) give me a advise?


Thanks in advance :)


PS: Sorry if my english is al little bit creapy XD

Steel is definitely very heavy. If you want to make something strong without making it too heavy, look into some of the better grades of aluminium out there in the 2xxx or 7xxx series. I'm considering using 7068 for my next batch or receivers (found a source that may be able to supply what I need). It's of similar weight as the conventional aluminium, but there are some grades out there with strength similar to or, in the case of 7068, exceeding that of your average steel.

For comparison, a VSR-R upper for a 430 mm inner weighs around 1 pound

Yeah, that's similar to what I use, I use 6063-T66, just different dimensions & tempering. 6063 isn't the strongest kind of aluminium out there though, and although the tempered aluminium the VSR-R is made out of is comparable to 6061 or 6082. (which is your average cnc'ed aluminium airsoft part), it is nowhere near the strength of 7078 though, for example (which is stronger than your average steel).

6063 is very pretty aluminium though which is why the VSR-R looks good when polished up. And 3 mm thick is really pretty darn sturdy

I would love to get one of yours, but I donīt like the Bar10/VSR10 wibbley wobbley plastic body. In good old Germany, I canīt just change it, because I need a special mark on it (F in a pentagon). Too bad, I guess you could make them left handed?
Anyways, you are doing a great job mate!

@ Reliku

Thanks a lot :)
hmm okay than I have to think about it. the Weigh difference between aluminium an steal are very high so it would make sence to take aluminium. At the other hand I can let the S355 nitrocarburize which would make the surface hardened and give the surface an nice matte black look AND altough it is extremly weatherproof.

Hmm whatever I have to think about it very clearly :D

Thanks a lot and I looking forward to see more of your awesome VSR-R project :)

I've got a Dutch source myself. If you google around for aluminium suppliers you'll be able to find something in the correct dimensions :)

6063 in 33 OD 27 ID is commonly used for construction so you shouldn't have a problem finding those.

Probably not anytime soon, since it's quite a complicated upper with the feeding ramp and there aren't many people who would want one.

I am working on a type 96 upper though
