Just got this in, pretty fun to shoot but already have it posted for sale on a couple places!

Mine had a nonfunctional hopup(unrepairable)
Barrel bushing broke in a mag
Unrepairable valves
Hammer stuck to the slide(almost removed the external hammer just to make it work)
Then the slide removed itself striking a player in the chest.

Good luck to you.

Now I have been building this for a while now and just need a light and a LBH.
Hk3p g17 slide
Ratech 91mm inner
Modify tan
New style hopup unit(not I key compatible!)
Dyna piston head
Guarder threaded outer barrel(needs sanding to cycle correctly)
I want a steel fcg set but ratech sucks anymore and I'm not sanding guarder tm stuff to fit the we/SC/HK/TW

I do need a new recoil spring as its kind of weak.
I want a tlr hl.
I do want to get the guarder trigger safety for giggles

I'd say this second hicapa of mine is more of a primary, but it's still a pistol right? The lower unfortunately doesn't exactly match the cuts of the upper but I like it anyways. Now my 5.1 Gold Match can be a secondary to my secondary :tup:

Build List:
  • Hicapa 4.3 stainless
  • Nineball 6.00 6" Barrel
  • Maple Leaf 70 degree bucking
  • Maple leaf I-Key
  • A.M. steel hop up arm
  • A.M Infinity IMM Open Slide
  • G&G scope mount
  • UAC blowback housing

I've had an AEP MP7 before in the past but never was satisfied with its performance. Then the tappet plate broke and I sold it after fixing it.

This will be an "AEP MP7 revisited" project, I'm gonna trick it out to get as much punch from the AEP gearbox as possible. It's got an R-hop in it which extends the range to a maximum of 40 meters using only 220 fps, but I have to lob them in so 30 meters is more accurate. Enough for the MED but I want more power, so I'm planning a variety of upgrades to boost the fps a little. Along with a tightbore barrel I'm hoping for 260-270 fps and an effective range of 40 meters, should be doable. If I manage to get more then that's a bonus :hehe:

Lately I've found myself using the Sig for games due to it's gas capacity compared to the 1911. Not quite as nice or fun shooter as the 1911's, but it gets the job done.

I don't field the KWA Mk23 much as the holster I have tends to "drop" the mags, but I have to own one of these, being a Metal Gear Solid fan. It has a King Arms foam filled suppressor, and a TM LAM which I retrofitted a Surfire P91 lamp and a laser diode.

Whalesmash, how did I miss that post of yours? Those hicapas look awesome! (Bit of a late reaction :doh:)

Anyway, here's the latest addition to my collection... Wolf, my love for these 1911's is entirely your fault :hehe:

These are not for the field!

The grips on the Colt are Katana style grips! Not the most comfortable grips!

Working on my mp7, it's getting a complete overhaul.

I am planning to install a brushless motor in it. Unfortunately, the motor that I ordered has a shaft too short. I knew that and I intend to replace it, but the motor is impossible to open up. Also, the inner shaft diameter is smaller so I can't swap it out with the stock one either which I was hoping would be possible. I'll probably make a new shaft myself once I manage to open it up. But for now I put the stock brushed motor in it again.

So instead of controlling it with an ESC, I can just use a mosfet. I didn't have a suitable mosfet lying around but I found a strip of super beefy power FETs that could do 500 V and 180 A. Quite overkill, but oh well :hehe:

Since this was just a breadboard setup, I rebuilt the whole assembly to something more compact:

This goes into the battery compartment, I'm using an external battery with it now. I've currently configured it to do semi/burst with 5 rd bursts. The rof is 25 so it's quite powerful :hehe:

Next up... making a new motor shaft and switching to a brushless setup :yup:
