trouwens dat zie ik net, dat je iets fout hebt gedaan in de stock. dat bovenste stuktje helemaal achter op te stock zit een wit stokje wat jij tussen die gele en witte connector hebt gezet maar je moet dat eigelijk in da ope stukje van die gele connector zetten. gwn een tip maar maakt nie erg veel uit. wil je trouwens ook gwn voor de looks mijn PSG-1 maken en wa foto's maken dan zet ik ze er in. en wil je dan ook die foto's sturen naar deze naam. b_meeuwsen@hotmail.com

ook kun je de barrel sterker maken door de 1e en de laatste gele van de barrel te vervangen met n snowflake zoals ik gedaan heb (zoals te zien tezien op pic 2)
tis egt een aanrader de barrel word er echt veel sterker /strakker van.

I Love the fact that you posted it but, I wish you hadn't used flash and just photographed it in a bright room.

author
War Hawk One (author)tytiger332011-07-07

yes I know but I didn´t want to wait for another day so I decided to just take pics with flash.

author
tytiger33 (author)2011-07-06

As a model gun that shoots it's ok. For me the trigger couldn't even handle 1 band. But it is a beautiful gun if you want a model.

author
War Hawk One (author)tytiger332011-07-07

o well it did work for me. maybe you should have a better look at it. I don´t know either.

author
War Hawk One (author)2011-07-06

author
Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2011-07-05

Wow! 5*s because you made a very good model. Perhaps you want to put a real picture of one in the intro for comparison? Because I actually looked at a real on and then this, and the only thing you're missing is a carrying handle, but I'm guessing that's optional?

author

huh there is a charging handle dude.

author

No, I'm talking about a carrying handle.
