Another DL-44 carbine mod! I always love these; spent a few weeks throwing one together myself, to great effect. You look like you’re on the right track. Keep it up!

Would you happen to have any pictures of it? I could use some inspiration w/r/t greeblies

back from the dead, it's this thread!



After a lot of iteration on the magazine, I think I've got the design ready to go. Mechanically, at least. I replaced the push button with a limit switch, and the trigger mechanism is able to push in the limit switch, but alas, it seems it's too quick to register on the sound board. So that's a problem I'll have to solve.



I got some weathering on the flash hider


I got a coat of filler primer on the scope mount, and a stock greeblie.


And I got the black paint on the eyepiece on the scope.

I got the Pulse extender installed in the magazine, and it worked!

Quick question: I'm going to be painting the carbine black, and I was wondering how best to go about that. What sort of prep to do  on the parts, post paint weathering, and so on.

It's a metal airsoft, and I was planning on using a rattle can. Any tips?

I'd say degrease with, say, acetone, sand, acetone again, prime with a primer specifically for metal. I learned the hard way with my knight's helmet that without proper prep, the paint comes right off again otherwise ;)

I wound up just sanding it down lightly and painting it black. It seemed to work well on my test piece, so let's hope that it works well on the full blaster.


Most of the pieces all sanded


the barrel after its paint. I originally planned for it to be painted vertically, but physics had other plans, so I improvised.


a test fit of some greebling. I've since decied to add a few more small bits. the other side will have the scope.

Would it be better to attach the screws for the scope mount before or after painting the main body?

I can see the finish line! It's all coming together



The greeblies on the scope side of the blaster. The taped part are the screws used to mount the scope. They'll need to be cut down to size once the paint has cured. The small greeblies at the back of the blaster are Megablocks pieces I got in a bag of (mostly) Lego I picked up at a garage sale.


The right side of the blaster. I've got the ESB piston and another Megablocks piece as greeblies on this side.


These are thumb nuts that I cut down a bit. These'll keep the scope mount in place.

Next steps are cutting down the mounting screws, and doing the main assembly. I'm thinking the stock greeblies can be screwed into place, so I guess I'll need to pick up some screws for that. Is there any restriction on allowable screw-heads?
