It uses a Lonex MP5K nozzle if I remember correctly, I think maybe Brill sells it, he has the length of every nozzle in the specs. Also, AK stock is the way to go on an MP5K. :D

A standard MP5K nozzle should work then, that's what I'm using in my MP5K and it's shooting quite consistently, it's just got abysmal compression efficiency. :D

No need for a micrometer, calipers are plenty accurate enough for airsoft parts. I'm fairly sure my nozzle is Lonex.

There's a big difference between calipers and a micrometer actually. :p

I prefer correct terms, a micrometer is literally for measuring in micrometers (thousands of a millimeter), while calipers are for measuring in tenth of millimeters. A micrometer is kinda pointless for airsoft use, as airsoft parts aren't produced to such tight tolerances.

I'm a Norwegian, and we tend to be a bit nit picky. :D

If you can't weld, you can use metal brackets combined with screw or rivets?

@Lefse the inner barrel appears to be around 141mm long... Aren't MP5K's supposed to be 110mm?

Took her apart a bit more... Ran a snake through the barrel, so I can actually see shiny now XP. Noticed that the E1 blue has a decent amount of carbon buildup on the armature... Not sure if that explains the rof drop or not though.

And on a very painful, headache-inducing note, I somehow stripped the head of one of the motor plate screws upon reassembly(not sure how I'm gonna fix THAT monstrosity)... Smh.

AND I missed band practice.
The PDW version has a 141mm barrel as stated by Mr. BOA. You could do what I did with my TM MP5K, cut a horizontal slit right below each of the screw holes and insert a nut so you can use regular machine screws that won't strip as easily.

Ah, you found one, quick buy one before they go out of stock.

You should be set for some beastly performance then. ;)

That's a very interesting gearbox indeed, will be fun to see the end result. ;)

That looks decent, did you use a power drill when polishing it? I use my trusty old 14.4V Hitachi, really makes those scratches go bye bye.

Nonsense, power tools literally spawn randomly in basement drawers.

...I don't have basement tho...:oops:

On a different note, due to current discussions on the forum [and previous discussions elsewhere], I'm considering getting a gaussemeter [in addition to another chrono].
Maybe consider taking a trip to a hardware shop too. ;)

@Lefse d'you think I'll need it under 20g? I'm not letting her get over 40rps..
I honestly have little experience with DSG builds, but I would definitely not go above 20 grams, there's little margin for error with DSG builds. I usually go for 15 grams or so for DSG builds, but I suspect that's actually a tad too light and is hurting compression efficiency.

I'm gonna try and gradually increase piston weight in my DSG AUG, when I can get my butt in gear to doing it. Extremely busy at work lately, so I don't have too much energy after work for such lately...

(Lefse is working on just gluing the piston head to the rack)
I'm doing what now? o_O

Depends on how long the nozzle is i guess, most likely won't cause any issues.

If it's a 3034 mosfet or similar it should handle higher current and voltage than the motor, cooling might become an issue at a certain point though.

I think "rectangular pattern" is what you wanted to use for that?
