On it's way...

UTG MK96. On it's way to more of a L118A1.

Mods so far:
DIY full barrel dampener
Flash-hider (I rid myself of the dayglo "please shoot me" orange tip)
Complete tear down and smoothing filing and fitting of 100% original parts. Everything is tight and smooth now.
Teflon tape mod to Piston/Cylinder/etc...
Added some (for now) ghetto cheek-pad padding
The Paint Job (My best paint job yet!)
Foam filling of all hollow spaces and between stock and receiver/barrel for added tightness/stability/dampening.

Accessories:
6-24x50mm NC Star Mil dot illuminated Optic (I know it's over kill in every way, but that's how I roll)

Upgrades are in it's future, but I'm undecided. I'm going to let ride out until it needs something or I become dissatisfied with it. It's shooting pretty well ATM.

The first of many inevitable Paint Jobs. I think It looks freaking sweet. As always the colors are funky online. It's not nearly as light coloured as it looks.

Before:



In process:



Finished:




I'm pretty happy with it. Def. my best paint job yet.

Don't ask...I was bored waiting for paint to dry....and I think I huffed some(alot) of paint fumes.

That is a great paint job. I have a mk96 also, and you gave me some great ideas for when I paint mine. Also, flash hider is a beauty. Thought about buying one of those a while back, but decided to spend the money on the internals first.

Great job.

Swivel bipods have they're uses mate, and surprisingly this one is pretty well made. A properly shouldered rifle on a swivel bipod allows for more fluid target changes than a fixed one. That said. I would rarely if ever deploy a bipod as an airsoft sniper. Resting on a solid object is just as good as recoil isn't an issue, it reduces weight, and provides for more versatile deployment options.

This bipod is for pre/post mission storage. If I start relying on it in the future, I may invest in an alternative. Which do you recommend?
