Introduction: P90 Magazine Clamp
The P90, or E90 as Echo 1 calls it, is one of the most versatile airsoft SMGs ever made. One problem with it is the low magazine capacity. You could buy a high-cap, but they are always hit- or- miss- I own 1, and my friend owns 2, Only one out of the 3 feeds correctly.
How do you cut your reloading time with a mid-cap?
A Magazine clamp.
You could spend $10 on Evike, or you could make your own...
Which will you choose? ;P
**This project is for the airsoft P90,but it would most likely work with a real-steel rifle also. This instructable is intended for airsofters.**
Step 1: Materials
Scrap Metal (I got mine from a dead computer... No Joke)
(2) 2.5" Screws with matching nuts.
Dremel (I used my trusty Roto- Zip)
And of course, OZZY OSBOURNE!!!
Step 2: Drawing
Match up the metal with the magazines and determine where the metal will be bent (don't bend it yet)
Then make a parallel line 1/2" below that line.
Do this on both sides
Step 3: Cutting and Shaping
Cut along the second line.
Do on both sides.
Put the metal in a vice (or place on any other metal/concrete right angle) and bend it at a 90 degree angle.
Do for both sides.
To make the bend sharper, tap with a hammer along edge.
Step 4: Cut It in Half
Measure the metal and cut directly down the center (See picture).
Step 5: More Cutting
See pictures for instructions
Step 6: Drilling
Time to break out the drill.
Draw a line dividing the one piece in half. Then along the line, mark 2 dots.
Then drill into them.
For the second piece, flip the first piece over and mark through the holes with a marker.
Drill through marked dots.
Step 7: Screws
Put the 2 screws through the holes.
Screw the nuts on.
Cut the excess off.
Step 8: Have Fun
Go out, play airsoft (in a safe and controlled environment).
