Name : Sean (Most friends call me Red)

Callsign: Red or Lord Nor'Deth

I've been airsofting for 2 years, was a paintballer for 10 before that (don't hate me, I've seen the light), and am a former member of the Canadian Armed Forces (Land Division/Army) retired due to medical reasons.

I'm currently alternating between a Well Warrior 1 (always in the process of being worked on and modified) with a 6.04, modded factory hop up, and a cupped head piston, and a CYMA M14 DMR (which I'm almost satisfied with) with a 6.04, AoE corrected, and noise reduced, and carry a KJW 1911A1 as a backup. All of my Airsoft have the standard DIY air seal and Teflon mods, and anything I can do myself to tweak them to make me a little more satisfied with them.

I don't presently run with a ghillie, but my BDU's are banded and modified to take natural veg and mud from the local area. It's a PITA to cam up, but it works fairly well.

I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada

Foamed the stock entire stock interior with my wife's old memory foam pillow when she bought her new one, Teflon wrapped the slot for, then stretched the O-Ring on my piston (to give me near perfect compression), switched to cupped head piston, and then enlarged, sanded, and smoothed the opening for my cylinder head, stabilized my barrel with e-tape on each side of the foam barrel spacers (4 evenly spaced through length of barrel), reinforced the plastic trigger box with aluminum duct/framing tape to give it more strength and less vibration, and lubed my cylinder to smooth the action, and reduce noise on cocking. Removed the weight from the adjustable butt-plate and foam filled all pieces of the adjustable butt-plate, and the cheek rest, tightened up all screws and thread locked them w. Blue Lock-Tite.
Stabilized the bipod mount to reduce rattling and vibration, and reinforced the arm on the factory hop-up by pinning it with a steel pin through the core of it. Still need to shim the hop up arm, and reduce vibrations through my scope.

That's where I sit so far with it, but I'm not done yet.

For the M14, I pretty much followed the DMR Guide on here...good stuff in there!

Any chance you read my guide cause 90% of the stuff in there was in my guide, I have duct-taped my trigger box but not with aluminum tape, good Idea. I had a good piston with a perfect o-ring and my piston doesn't hit the cylinder head so I don't need to use an airbrake or softer piston. The memory foam is great stuff isn't it. Making a silencer will make the gun change it's pitch BTW, I recommenced. For the scope maybe rap soft stuff like foam or tape on the mounts so it fits better to the gun and maybe wrap the silencer in electrical tape and then put a cover on it.

Edit I mean the guide in my signature (I am sure you know this but just in case - the thing under my comments)

Yep, thats the guide I used for my 96...sorry, didn't even clue in that you were the author (feels like a moron now)
Great guide, and thank you for the info!
A silencer is one of the next things on the "ToDo" list.
