Warlock's Weapon WIP Thread
« on: Jun 06, 2019, 08:37 PM »
So finally getting around to building a kit. Been tinkering with my rifle the most and could use some other thoughts please.

I took a G36 airsoft I snagged dirt cheap, swapped the stock out for a AK stock I ordered, removed the rail from the handguard, added barrel, coolant tube, rangefinder via PVC. Currently most parts are just taped on until I'm done tinkering and checking out different ideas.





Thanks for looking!

Found and ordered a new handguard as what I have above just isn't doing it for me.

Got a lot more to do but happy how it's coming along!

Is there a specific Star Wars blaster rifle you are using as a model?

I know when I was building my first weapon, my Ruus'alor tried to steer me to pattern it after a Canon weapon so there would be less chance of being denied.

No I'm trying for something unique. Mostly because when I began I found the G36 airsoft on eBay for $15 and just went with it.

The few canon weapons built off the G36 don't appeal to me and figured most canon Mandos are either carrying weapons not seen on others before or westar varients, so why not try for something that would be "mine".

The EL-16 blaster is based off the G-36. If you want some ideas, you can always use it as reference, mostly for little details. Yours can be a Tibanna-jacked variant, or something.

I'll look into it.  Thanks!

got some Steel tubing from Depot, as the PVC sizes were either too small or too large for this guard.

Cut more of the main weapon away and used 1" PVC tube to attach guard. Will need to epoxy/bolt it into place.


Rain delay on more work tonight, but hope to get assembled tomorrow/this weekend and start working on some greeblies.

Still working on my G36 base as well. Decided to nix the rifle scope of the top. Going to look for a more Star Warzy scope/upper attachment. Leaning towards a M38 replica (cheaper resin cast ).

Still fighting with how to mount the stock securely. It's butting up against the trigger mechanism which I'd like to keep just to have a 'working' trigger.

Finally got the handguard worked out. Bolted a bit if pipe into the body and the hand guard securely slides on to. Have that setting with some JB weld to lock it down hopefully and can remove the screws to replace with something more fitting.

Also thinking of snagging a few E11 grebblies to mount on here. Power cyclinders and counter at least. Perhaps the magazine too

Latest acquisition to convert, airsoft Beretta ARX base.






Thinking heavy blaster rifle with wide vented barrel, maybe a M19/38 scope or pair of thin scopes. Still in planning stages and looking for ideas.

The G36 is inoperable yes, the only componant remaining is the trigger/safety mechanicism solely to maintain position and movement of the trigger.
 The ARX I haven't opened up yet but I intend to do the same.

Both were purchased as "for parts only/not working".

Got the sights removed, and lower rails sanded/cut off. Will tackle the upper rails later.  Drilled out for a barrel. Still under decided on if I wanna use this alluminum bit with or with out the tip, or make a vented shroud from PVC.




*EDIT* Another barrel option

Still working on making this ARX a bit Star Warzy:




Any suggestions welcome. Had other groups suggest removing the grip and buttstock for a thumbhole style stock

Also suggestions on greeblies would be great!

I am really digging what you have done with that G36 base. That ARX needs a little bit of work still bit I like the direction it's heading. I would suggest perhaps using the A300 for inspiration  :like:
