Airsoft M-16 Transformation

Introduction: Airsoft M-16 Transformation

About: C++, HTML, and JavaScript programmer, gun fanatic, and is a BMXer.


I modded my airsoft m-16 that i bought from walmart for thirty bucks. I had some spare pvc pipe so i decided to use that as a grip so I ziptied it to the beginning of the barrel. I was trying to turn it into an FN SCAR 16, and i had some spare steampunk looking stuff... .. I don't know what to call it... Anyway Then I painted it for about 20 seconds and sprinkled it over the gun so it looked snowish. It was the most fun I have had in a while. Hope anyone who sees this likes it. I will be painting it a different color  next time. Comment and feedback please! Hope for a good rating!

    it is illegal to sell airsoft guns without orange tips so as soon as you buy your gun you can get rid of the tip and its legal

    not in Canada, they don't even have to sell guns with orange tips in Canada but a lot of them have them because they come from the US.

    The orange tip is only to help people to distinguish the gun from a real gun and an airsoft gun. It is necessary for any kind of shipping or sale but once you own it you can paint over it or remove it

    I know that and am aware of that. But I never take it in public and since orange tipped guns are also sometimes mistaked as real, I don't really need to worry about white because its a color that stands out just as much as orange, unlike full black guns. Most people would guess a black gun to be a real gun before they think a white gun is real.

    Beleive it or not, in California anyway, its only illegal to sell guns without orange tips. Once you buy it, you can remove the orange tip, as long as you use the gun on privately owned property, not public.

    Thanks. Hopefully people won't complain about the non-orange tips anymore.

    Eugene Stoner, the designer of the M16.
    And while that was sarcasm, I'm pretty sure macguyver would like your resourcefulness with what you had available to you.

    That's entirely excusable. Most people don't actually know who Eugene Stoner is. Even my gun-savvy uncle and many Marine and Army compadres didn't know who I was talking about when I said his name.

    I know every single gun you could imagine but I don't know creators. I was wondering if I should have known. Lol. Thanks for commenting.
