As much as I love the L85 I don't want to use it as a long-range semi-automatic sharpshooter rifle... and I enjoy larger caliber rifles especially the .308 caliber. Of-course this is all strictly 6mm I like to stick as closely to the real deal when I run onto the field to shoot people from 50yards away ::)

This is the rifle:

and here are some closer hi-def pictures.





I figure I can get away with an SR-25 receiver but the part that I can't find currently is the front RIS rail and the way its attached to the main receiver with those weird looking indents.

Any ideas on the parts I could use to make this beautiful rifle. Probably a P* at some point as well...

*Also, no chrome barrels ick!

Your best bet for getting that look would be getting a FF RIS that has no gap from the start of the unit to the rails.

Something like this...... http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/accessories/r-i-s-r-a-s/for-rifles-aegs/dytac-invader-rail-system-12inch-black.html

Note how there is a 1/2 section as the start as to bump right up against the receiver. It will give you the appearance of a monolithic rail, but not be.
Also, I too love the .308 airsoft rifle. Makes you feel like more of a manly man carrying a big gun like that. I have wanted to do a .308 battle rifle(basically just a carbine).

See I would but I want to make a near identical version but that doesn't seem possible unless I shell out $1500 for a real steel mono rail.

I would like a rail with the wholes instead of some silly jagged or oval pattern as well as the grooves on each side of the rail.

Seems a dream now.

and I do agree a .308 even in airsoft is manly man style.

Why dont you check out some of our UK based airsoft web sites?

Theres bound to be a thread or 2 pertaining to making an identical replica, as know-one likes looking like their home land military forces like the locals ;)

I'd try Arnies, UKAZ, Zero1 and ASUK as first stops, the rest are likely to be smaller more local based sites just repeating whats on the larger sites

Just for starters

Thanks vindi, since I've moved to the states all of those sites just faded from my memory will be sure to check them out and let you guys know what happens!

I have a plan now. Buy SR25K and get it engraved with LMT logo's etc and then work from there. Probably a P* as well.
