Let me look

Not him...but neat stuff...http://www.ukmonsters.co.uk/oldmadwe...ics/wa2000.htm

*** Killbucket ****
This is the guy...he's built some pretty wild stuff and has plans posted for public consumption. I don't think he has kits...I know lots of guys were asking for them long ago.

He's kind of out of the airsoft loop. He was handbuilding for local folks in the USA and then posting his builds and guides to a few websites but then he dropped off the map.

The last time he showed up was when someone poached one of his guides and was passing it off as their work.

From what the different picture I saw, I think I have expensive taste... minigun, browning 1919,...

So I was thinking of ''making one''. Or more exactly, building around a existing frame.

What would be a good base to start?
-m4 : lots of available parts
-m249: already the right type of weapon

the m249 gearbox look a lot simpler to work, compare to my v3 (no trigger in the ways, removable ''tension spring''). Have'nt see how the gear stop turning in the right position (in v3 the trigger is deactivated when the knob on the ''piston'' gear it the ''trigger mechanism'') so the piston is at is most forward position.

From what I saw (youtube video...) it used all the same internal parts (same gears, piston,...).

any suggestion?
ps sorry for all the bad technical term, I should get better soon

The 249 is basically a "brick"...so it's definitely more generic to work with re. space/layout. I suppose any mechbox can be modded to be activated by a switch (so no trigger worries) but with the 249 box you're half way there. There is no semi on a 249...so it's full auto only and the piston is basically going to stop wherever it will just after you release the trigger. Technically you could just remove the gear stop and it would "unwind" as the piston is pushed forward.

Also...the hopup is basically a cylinder with a hole in the side for feeding...whereas many other hopups are bottom fed (because they're meant to be fed from a traditional mag).

From what you've described in that pic...you might actually be better off using the internals from a 249 and the outer from something else like a big water gun or nerf gun.

Im 6'6 220lbs and run an M16/FNC
Height and weight doesnt have much to do with anything. I'm heavier then TC and am only 5'8 160lbs and we both handle our 249s just fine.

Because you can't break the CA style ones, no need to sell new ones
And G&P just uses a stock V2

Alternatively you could try using an M14 or P90 mechbox
V3 would work too since it has a motor cage

Not really. They're not as common as say a V2, but they can be ordered. I've carried an airsoft vulcan cannon (mini gun), they are extremely heavy, and very difficult to shoot. Homemade won't suit you, and is hard to pass off for use. A mini gun system uses an electric system to rotate and time the barrels, and a gas one to propel the BB. The weapon assembly weighs in around 50 pounds, that's not including the backpack you may want to run for extra battery and gas, as well as BB feeding; so your gun can shoot for more than 5 minutes before reloading everything. They are very cool, but mostly useless and you wouldn't want to carry one for more than a quick scrim, even if you're incredibly fit and built. On top of that, they aren't very accurate.

At least with an M249, M60, RPK, etc, you can upgrade them to take the punishment, be more accurate and take weapon sights, etc. also, whichever gun you do use you'll want to be able to shoot it, and dump a ton of money into completely upgrading, tuning, and keeping it perfect. 99 out of 100 LMGs on the field do not out range, have better accuracy, or have as good of a rate of fire as your average assault platform. If your gun isn't all that it can be, then your average M4 will keep your head down, and move in on you, quickly killing you before you are even a threat. After an hour or two when your tired of carrying the thing around, you still are only useful if you can bust your ass to the front line and provide support fire before the battle is done.

As for build, I'd take Thunder Cactus's advice. He's had one of the few I've seen that was worth its salt.

As far as keeping people's heads down, I've kept 2-3 people suppressed with a bolt action rifle before. High accuracy inspires just as much fear as a torrential downpour of ammo it seems

Especially when you can shoot standing up, SAW/LMG at your hip, cigar hanging out your mouth, laughing your ass off.

BA, not as much fun!

Hard to enjoy a nice downpour when BA keeps cutting it short.
