Ive owned a whole wack of guns. I assembled one of mine from scratch. complete scracth with the aid of Thundercactus. Im very proud of the gun, but im never going to do it again. The amount of work and such for that thing, even for experienced airsofters, was ridiculous. had we not had access to the machining equipment TA did... it never would have worked.
No one here is saying Dont Do it. We re just saying Dont Do it YET. youre not ready for it.
