OK guys this is what I am thinking of......

I have been looking around at the rifles that are under $100. And there are some that look like they may have some potential. So what about keeping this thread, kind of like an Uber thread, of things that can be done to the cheap rifles out there.

Have nothing but DIY stuffies to help out the newer guys that want to get into the sport, and those that bought that "crappy" first rifle due to cost.

I figure if would be fun to see what we all can come up with. I have been looking personally at the Well MB06. It is a clone of the Maruzen SR-2 rifle. Looks really BA in my opinion.

I know there is also the ever popular UTG 324. I personally have that one still to this day, and yes it was my first rifle for airsoft. And I love the thing..... even though you can pull the back of the bolt clean off....

So what do you think guys... You up to the task?

A few "rules" to consider.....
1.. Post what gun you are going to "mod"
2.. Only things that can be done in your home are allowed
3.. Parts can come from any rifle, just don't go nuts ;)
4.. Make sure to post what you did and how you did it, pics a plus (if ok with the mods)
5.. Nothing to custom... no metal lathes, mills, or special tools
6.. Gotta look cool.... this one is kind of a given

Mods if you think this is a dumb idea or pointless lemme know or just delete it.

Oh yeah that is what I was thinking of... I am sure that us guys over on this side of the pond could just wipe the floor with you guys

Bring it Vindi!!

Well it wasn't so much of a gauntlet as much as it was a wet noodle.

But yeah sounds good Vindi!! That is the kind of thing that I was talking about. I just need to sell my KJ m700 and stuff and I will be able to get one or two rifles to work on.

Here is a REALLY GOOD THREAD from Vindi he did a while ago.

Dunno Vindi.... may have bitten a little more off than i can handle

But being as I already have the UTG MK96 I am planning on using that and seeing what I can do with her.

Yes I know I already have a few upgraded parts.... but.. The mods you should be able to do to the stock rifle and have good results.

I do plan on using some of Vindi's tricks to make the L96 as BA as possible.

LOL ...

Heck see if you can't find a weapon that a friend has and offer to build it up for him if he gives you a little cash for it.

I am thinking about doing my buddies G-Spec for him... And still seeing if I can get my hands on one of those MB06's.
Damn .... you gots all kinds of goodies there Vindi.

I cracked open the MK96 and started that ... but I broke the damn bolt handle?!
LOL ... No ... getting replacement from UTG as we speak ... ;)
It is that small hollow bolt that holds the bolt cap, bolt knob to the cylinder it self. I found a heavy duty bolt at work and make it work

Just finished putting a longer rail on the rifle as well

Well I have all the paint stripped from the reciever and barrel
Anyone for a chrome rifle? lol Picking up the paint after work today and will get her a nice covering.

Still need to put some bondo on her and paint the barrel. But will get some before and after pics of it.

Hey Vindi .... how is yours coming?
LOL ..... I hear you on that ...

Shouldn't be looking online either... found the PDI fluted barrel for the L96... thing is SWEET!


Ok well got the receiver and barrel stripped down and painted.

I took the hop up rubber and made a really nice air sealer on it. Took the end of the bucking and ran some 8lb fishing line around the end a few times. Then took some silicone and ran a small bead around the barrel and bucking end, as well as over the fishing line to make sure it stayed.

I tested the compression on my cylinder.... and WOW complete air seal. Then again I also have the PDI plastonite cylinder set, so no real surprise there. I do have the stock cylinder so can test that out if needed as well.

I also made sure that all of the barrel spacers were still in place and sturdy. I just used some felt washers that are for a sink faucet. I then just took some electrical tape and ran a few wraps around to make sure that they stay in place.

Everything right now looks and seems normal. Just waiting on the silicone to cure and I will get some pics. It is already late here..... sorry I haven't gotten any pictures up yet, but going through some really crappy family things on my wifes side. So that does take priority over the rifle.

But will get some up this weekend for you guys.

Like the other threads..... don't under estimate the power of a clone with some tweaking.

There is the link to may past thread about some tweaks you can do to the MK96.

Here are some pics of the rifle completed. I couldn't find the camera so I don't have pics of the process. :(

I attached a long rail to the top of the barrel. I ended up pulling the rail a little bit off center. This was due to the way that I secured it to the barrel while the JB weld was curring.

I do plan on getting a 1-4x scope or something of the like. Would really like to get an Acog or something of the like to put on the rifle.

And before anyone says anything about not being able to see through the scope. Because you can ;)

Sounds like Winnipeg to to me ;)

Heck why not just come here to North Dakota? To many rules and really hard to get air soft stuffies up in Canada.
Oh damn you are gonna be long ways away. Just come here to ND.... "Distant" family? Does she know who they are ... and do they care?

See the US just makes better sence. That and we can go shooting some big guns as well.
I have some mesh that I use.

I lay a coat of primer first, usually gray.
I then lay down the under coat first.
Then spray a few random colors around.
Lay some netting on rifle
Spray final coat over it all.
Seal with some clear.
Any kind of mesh would work .... Just get something you will like.
If you shortened down the barrel, by like half.... It would look sweet.

Looks like you could fit two PSG-1 barrels in there.

Just about looks like you need another hand guard up there though. What would it look like if you added another hand guard to it?
That is kick ass vindi.
