Good day all,
It has been my intention from the time that I got back onto this forum to create one thread that contained my G36 work-in-progress ideas and updates. However, I soon started buying more replicas and have since sold off all of my G36's. While I can go through my existing threads for my AK's and update them one-at-a-time, I am under the opinion that I should create this one thread that contains everything regarding all of my replicas and their current tech status. I will also use this thread to ask questions and get opinions on builds that are in the works or are planned for the future. I have so many things that I want to do in the future that would not be applicable to my other threads, such as asking about sniper replicas and questions about potential sidearm replicas.
As such, I will no longer update my other threads, but they will still exist for the various information that is contained in them. They are all as follows:
Cyma AK-47/CM-028s [Gradual WIP] Thread - My Thoughts
Cyma AK-74/CM-048 [Gradual WIP] Thread - My Thoughts
Cyma AKS-74U/CM-045a [Gradual WIP] Thread - My Thoughts
JG G36k/c [Gradual WIP] Thread - My Thoughts (Note: These G36's have since been sold and will not be mentioned anymore in this thread)
Hopefully, I will be more active with airsoft in the coming months and years. I have not been out to a field for over a year at this point, and would like to start going back before too long now that college will be settling down in a few weeks.
I do have some questions in mind that I will update in the next post, but first, I will go ahead and post up some updated pictures of my current collection. I am uploading these based on their age/when I bought them starting from the oldest first. I am not going to post part lists for these as that would be redundant, but I will if I have questions about something later on.
The first one up is my WE M1911. This is also the replica that has been my avatar for a long time and is about 7 years old. I bought one of Evike's mystery boxes and this is what I received. I have kept it as I like the look and overall design of the M1911. It is currently non-functioning, as the slide will stick back after the first shot. While I do want to fix it at some point, I am not in a hurry as I rarely use it, if ever.
The next one up is my Cyma AK-47s/CM-028s and is the replica that got me back into airsoft in mid-2015. I bought it new/on sale off of Evike and enjoyed using it. It has some "upgrades" in it that I purchased off of Evike when I didn't know any better along with some basic DIY mods. I have not touched it since late 2016 and it has been stored since the last update in its thread.
Next up is my WE G17 GEN. 3. Once again, I fell for another one of Evike's mystery boxes and that is how I ended up with this. I was planning on selling it, but couldn't due to the forum rules. I decided to keep it and have actually enjoyed using it. It shoots remarkably well and I enjoy the feel of it. The inner barrel assembly had been bead-blasted to reveal a silver color. This replica is a little over 2 years old.
Soon after the G17, I ended up with a NIB WE G18c GEN. 4. Still, I have not used it at all and it has been stored for since the time of purchase, which was a little over 2 years ago.
The next replica I purchased on-sale after the G18c was my Cyma AKS-74U/CM-045A. This is my primary that I use on the field and it currently has SHS 13:1 gears, a ZCI HT motor, DIY mods, re-stained wood, and a DIY flat-hop. The stock motor it came with started smoking and is why I replaced parts from my old G36k into it. Just as I did that though, I got busy with life and never tuned it well. As far as I remember, it skips shots on full-auto. This replica is almost 2 years old, but has been stored for the past year since its last update in its thread.
Finally, my last replica is my Cyma AK-74/CM-048. I purchased this one on-sale as well, but have never fielded it. I like everything about it, but have never had the chance to really use it. It has some basic DIY mods done to it, re-stained the wood, as well as a DIY flat-hop. This replica is a little under a year old and has been stored since the last update in its thread.
In closing, I will be posting up tech-related questions soon. Mostly, I have been curious about various Maple Leaf buckings and nubs that I have wanted to try out. I am also very, very tempted to purchase a sniper replica at some point down the road that I will definitely need help with when the time comes.
Thanks for reading and I'll be posting some questions shortly,
