    Im looking for someone with some airsoft tech knowledge who can build or knows someone who can build a gun body for a new design i made. If youve visited my othere thread in this catergory, you know the design im talking about.

    Im still working on the design so theres no picture for the finished product just yet. But i would just like to know if theres anybody out there who can fabricate their own airsoft gun bodies and recievers for future reference.

    It will depend a lot on your price range, complexity of the body, material, etc. Could you give us some more info on those?

    If you're just looking to prototype a design, find someone with a 3D printer.

    What used to cost 10's of thousands of dollars to do can now be done for just a couple to a few hundred on a 3D printer.

    Well... If i could afford it... which i cant afford anything right now... id go with ABS plastic... and the body.. as soon as i finish the design.. i can post.

    Check out this website, www.knifekits.com

    They sell kits to mold plastic holsters and knife sheaths, if you can carve the shape of the gun out of wood, you can mold it yourself, but you'll only get the outer shell, none of the internal structure. Their prices are very reaasonable.
