Hey so I just recently finished my 1911 project and I started to wonder if anyone else on D Corps had project guns? By project I mean a gun (pistol, or full rifle) that underwent much customization, time, effort to make it your own gun, or even a better version of itself. (I think both internally, and externally should apply). And post pictures too!!
I'll start it off, I just finished a 3 week project on a 1911. I started with a TM 1911 MEU with some minor internal upgrades. I then bought a Guarder FBI Metal body for it and some custom grips and an extra TM MEU mag (sooo hard to find). From there was a constant on and off effort of removing all the parts form the old body, to file into, silicon, press and squeeze into the aluminum body...hardest crap to do ever.ha. I finally put it together a couple days ago. Only quirk is for reasons unbeknownst to me it can only fire .25's. if i use .2's the gas fires incorrectly and the gun won't cycle.
Overall though the gun feels and looks amazing, and it shoots straighter then any pistol I've ever used. plus it has amazing blowback!
My project gun is a Lindenarms (my brand lol) Silent G36K made from an Echo1 G36C Gen. 3. I say Silent because the sound it makes is close to silent. Also the main purpose of this gun is to be a menueverable field sniper or urban setting sniper.
Ive foamed the body
Added a madbull 6.01 TBB at 363mm length
and working on a different motor type.
So far players have said its barely audible outside of 20ft in a combat zone. Its still a work in progress, i still plan on a padded piston head/ the new piston head type that just came out and adding a ever longer inner and outer barrel. Plus the SL8 mags.
