Modifying the lower receiver by drilling a hole, the aluminum used for airsoft isn't 'high-grade' by doing that you're probably weakening the receiver as is, after modification maybe under one magazine of semi-auto would do...full auto?

I highly doubt it, we need to see fact sheets or demonstrations, not some dumb ATF agent trying to insert a magazine backwards.

I hope your opinion on WE GBBRs isn't based solely off of NoobLords experience, he seems to have trouble with almost ANY gun he owns.

In another thread it was clearly distinguished that he has the least clue about gun care, putting a GBBR through 10K rounds without lubing or cleaning is simply asking it to give out on you.

If the WEs can handle the tough loving from wildcard it's not crapola.

Of all the GBBRs within the mid-range pricing excluding Bomber/Inokatsu these work the best out of the box and don't feel like TOYS.

The newer versions being released have made a long way since the Version 1s back in 2008? Regardless the modified Escort/Sun Project gas system is still more efficient than open bolt gas systems.

We'll just have to see how VFC chalks up when they release their GBBRs.

If a "gangsta" is gonna get a gun, they're gonna get it. They're not going to build one. That's dumb shit right there.

With over 12 MILLION AR -15's alone in private hands in the U.S. why bother making your own, simply go to a gun show in about 30 states where you can by a long gun without ANY registration at all.

This. Like seriously it's not like anyone is going to build a gun when it's cheaper, easier and more reliable to BUY a REAL one instead of converting a TOY thats going to last less then one mag(most likely). T7 has the best post in this thread that makes more sense then any shit that fox pushes...

That is absolutely despicable. Fox News really does come up with some crazy shit. Next they'll be telling people that having a fridge in your house encourages rapists and murderers to come into your house...

I would imagine those whose have the know-how to convert airsoft to deadly weapons, would have in-depth knowledge of real steels. They probably would have access to real steel anyway. Why even bother with airsoft?

I see two issues with this.

First of all, this could be an issue in Canada. If we can import the upper reciever and the rest of the gun (unrestricted parts, correct?), then us Canadians (who can't normally get access to "assault rifles") would be able to create one without a license to do so.

Second of all, this could be an issue if using a WE reciever would enable full auto (although we haven't seen any evidence of this yet).

Anyway, we all knew this was coming.

all of you should really know what you're talking about before you say anything.
it is, in fact, simple to modify a GBBR OR an AEG into a bullet firing weapon.
here it is... the DIY.
be sure to write this down ASAP, as the Man will have it removed from the web within hours:

1) buy an airsoft gun. easier with a GBBR, and an AR type weapon would be best
2) replace the gun with a real steel gun (of the same weapon type)
3) paint the flash hider orange
4) fill in any serial numbers with bondo, or other fillers.
5) paint filler black to match the rest of the weapon
6) tell everyone it is an airsoft gun converted to fire bullets.

there you go guys and girls.
DONE!

So instead of running the Soccer Mom Fear Machine, why don't they just issue the same regulations for the WETTI M4 that the real AR-15 has? Semi auto only, must have a 16" barrel, Magazine must be fixed and/or limited to so many rounds(in most states). It's not that hard, and would be easier to do than raiding warehouses and stores.
