Thanks! It was purchased for my freinds Tanaka K98k, which is pictured above (I work on it enough that I could very well own it! Hah. I have a G&G 980 I have yet to photograph.)

I've got it installed, but I found that there is nothing that actually holds the chamber packing and barrel into the unit itself. I'm not sure if I'm missing a part from the kit or what (Couldn't see anything that would retain it aside from friction and the hopup stem... which seems sketchy) So it tends to slip every now and then, Might tap in a set screw or something at some point.

Either way, the gun is getting a nice consistency per shot. Just not 100% as I'd like.

There is supposed to be a small grub screw that holds the barrel to the unit. Did you go the way of reusing the Tanaka hop up or the VSR hop up? I installed the BGS hop unit so I'm not sure if it's a similar procedure.

We used a VSR-10 barrel and hopup, and it works something lovely. Used a GBBR tightbore for it though since it was the only thing readily available, lol.

I just got my G&G working after like, 5 months of owning the damned thing. I've got a couple wooden projects on the go this weekend, I'll have some photos to show in the following few days.

... One down. Since the receiver says 1947 or something like that on it, made the coloration akin to a postwar M44.

(Post war m44)


Just need to get the bolt cap from Amos and i'll be happy. Heh.

My pathetic attempt at photography.

The Kar 98k is a Tanaka which has an orange stain on the stock. After 3 coats of dark walnut stain and 3 coats of linseed oil it still looks orange in the pics. It's more brown. Anyway...



Western Arms P38 with custom wood grips.

No. Its from the late 90's i think. NBB. I've been looking for a spare magazine for it for ever with no such luck in finding one.

PPSH got a bit of a makeover. Spending the next week rubbing linseed oil into the stock to get a nice yellow-orange finish on it. The wood is cheap and blotchy but whatever, its character . Hoping to have it a couple shades darker.

If I can find a paint stripper strong enough, I plan on redoing the metal with a nice blue too. Hopefully get that true russian 'Beat to shit and back' look.
