Just throught I'd bring this thread back from the dead. I've learned a lot since I posted this thread and just for the record, I have no intentions or notions of doing any stupid conversions. I've gotten my PAL, and I've gone and bought a Norc CQ-A. I love it, I don't care what people think, the finish on it isn't great, but not that bad. The only issue I had with it was when I shot .22lr out of it with the CMMG conversion, but the issue was my fault, I didn't clean it thuroughly (supposed to clean the gas tube by shooting 5.56 out of it afterwards, as per instructions on the CMMG kit). In the end, I got it up and running and it works just fine.

Ever since I got my PAL, it was one gun after another and now I'm on the $hitlist with the wife. I bought the CQ-A (well, she bought it) as a Christmas present for myself. Then I bought the Norc M14S/M305 as a grad present from BMQ. Then I bought a pistol and a shotgun which I didn't tell her about, and enough ammo to feed all the pigs for a month, and when she saw the credit card bill, she was pissed.

Anyway, you're wondering why I'm digging up a thread where I asked one of the dumbest things ever posted on ASC. Well, I'm starting to sell my airsoft stuff (got the CC and bank acct taken away so I can't buy any more guns or ammo) to subsidize my new hobby, I've offloading all my airsoft stuff. I posted my TM M4A1 RIS on Craigtslist and I get this guy who asks me to trade his .45 Colt for my airsoft rifle. At first, I was thinking hell yeah, I'll trade my airsoft for real steel. So I try to get some info out of the guy and I find out it's been "Converted" WTF? Why would anyone take a "Colt's Mk 5 / Series '70 Gold Cup National Match .45 Automatic Caliber" and turn it into "non blow back co2 airsoft". Why would anyone do this???? Is it even possible???? My guess is it's completely butchered and not even worth trading for parts, I was a bit tired of chasing this guy for information and felt an arguement was about to start.

Here's the Craigslist post and the e-mail chain for your reading pleasure (I've changed the name to protect the identity of the seller, but I guess it wouldn't be hard to track down:

Personally it would be easier because selling a real fire arm is illegal and since it's a real firearm turned into a airsoft, it would grasp more attention
