This is going to be a little pic-heavy, so bear with me. I was walking through my local hardware store yesterday, and I chanced upon something that changed my life. Well, maybe not my life... but it changed my evening! And so, I give you my quick and dirty tutorial on how to make a PBS1-style suppressor for your Eastern Bloc AEG or GBBR. 1. Buy two PVC drainpipes with flanges. The ones I chose are 40mm diameter for the inner (Small Pipe), and 50mm for the outer pipe (Big Pipe). You will want to get the kind with a rubber gasket in the flange. 2. Pull out the gasket from the flange of the inner pipe. You will use this to shim the narrow end of the inner barrel in the wider end of the outer barrel. 3. You also need this PVC pipe connector thing. The inner diameter is 25mm, outer diameter is almost big enough to be a perfect slip-fit in the inner pipe. You can shim it with some electrical tape. After I got it to where I needed it, I used 2 small screws to lock it in place and prevent it from shifting in Small Pipe. 4. As you can see here, the flared end of Small Pipe fits perfectly in narrow end of Big Pipe. You may need to use a wrap or two of electrical tape here to make it a really snug fit. 5. Here you can see how the rubber gasket is used to shim the Small Pipe in the Big Pipe. Just use a wooden chopstick or a Phillips screwdriver to jam it in there. Solid. 6. Heres what the "butt" end of the suppressor ends up looking like. Pretty rough, but hey, I banged this thing out in like an hour - I'll probably sit down and sand the rough edges eventually. If youre fancy, you can make an endcap out of something that will cover the gap. 7. Other end of suppressor. Im not in the US, so I can actually have little foam rings in mine without the ATF going medival on me, but if youre in the US kiddos, avoid that and make yours totally hollow. Im still thinking on the best way to make an endcap. 8. SIze comparison! Stock AKS74U flash hider compared to this PBS1. 9. A pic of the suppressor on the gun itself! 10. I made an endcap by simply cutting out a ring of PVC sheet and drilling a hole in it, and gluing it into the end of the pipe. Paint it up with flat black paint and scuff it with a bit of sandpaper, and it looks OK!
Location: North San Diego County, CA Rules No Trades Paypal only or Cash FTF in North San Diego County Additional photos available upon request I am inclined to provide discounts for bulk purchases AEG / Thunder B CYMA AKS74U - $100 shipped; $80 FTF Included in the package: Upgraded CYMA AKS74U (full metal, real wood) Soviet AKS74U sling Soviet AKS74U drop case I am the second owner of this AEG – I traded for it in January 2013. The original owner of the AEG rewired it (also added a mosfet) and upgraded the internals to obtain a high RPS (don’t recall the exact number – 20-30rps IIRC). I know that it was also upgraded internally, although I do not recall what they were exactly. However, I know that it fires reliably at about 325 fps with .25s Since I traded for it I’ve only used it in a few games. As a backup though, it has been brought it to many games, chrono’d, and subsequently stuck it back in its case. As far as an estimated round count, I have not put more than 3000 bbs through it. No batteries or magazines are included. However, I can include some MAG AK74 mid-caps with custom “fakelite” finish at additional expense. Magazines – Mid-caps / Standards 8x MAG Metal M14 Short Magazines (70rds) - $55 shipped for all Bought these to simulate real-steel 10rd M1A magazines. I have only used them at one game. They feed great, are metal, and feel amazing. 8x G&P Steel AK47 Mid-Cap Magazines (150rds) - $55 shipped for all Bought these a while ago for my VFC AK. They feel amazing and have a good heft to them. The area around the feed lips looks a bit scuffed because I punched out the pins to disassemble and thoroughly clean each magazine. They feed great in both my VFC AK and the AKS74U for sale here. 7x Dboys Metal M4/M16 Standard Magazines (68 rds) - $45 shipped for all By far my favorite magazines for the M4 platform. As I do not have an M4 AEG (and have not for a while), I have no need for them. They are clones of the Marui 68 round standards and are the smoothest feeding, most reliable magazines I have ever used. They are full metal. Magazines – Hi-Caps Got all of these as part of a purchase or trade. I have not personally used any of them since I don’t use Hi-Caps. Get them for cheap! 4x M14 Hi-Caps - $25 shipped for all 2x M4 / M16 Hi-caps - $15 shipped for both 1x G36 hi-cap - $10 shipped
I saw another thread concerning this same issue, but it never really seemed to get resolved. Are there any handguards that would fit an AK Beta Spetsnaz style gun, or more specifically the Marui version? I feel like a AKS74u style handguard would work, but I'm not sure (am willing to try). Anyone know if it would or not, or could suggest something else? I bought this TM AK Beta from a friend for $80, and I'd like it to become my first project gun. Really want to make it look amazing. Aside from the handguard, another external upgrade I was hoping would be possible is to get a buffer tube style stock. Currently the gun has the battery wired to the stock, and I'd prefer to keep it that way, but I haven't been able to find a hollow/not sealed off buffer tube for AK's. And lastly, the gun has a annoying sounding whining noise (reminds me of the cheap combat machine rentals at the place I usually play at) when it shoots, any way I could maybe get rid of that and get something a bit more nicer and intimidating sounding (not a sound amplifier please, getting a PBS-4 suppressor for the gun). Also, when shooting semi auto, if I try and shoot too fast, the gun stops shooting completely. Got to try switching it to full auto, shooting once, then back to semi. If I don't switch to full auto and shoot, it simply wont shoot in semi at all. I am relatively new to airsoft (played a bit over the past few years, much more within the past couple months though), and have no experience with modifying guns at all, so if most of this didn't make sense, you can tell why. xD (Oh, also, best $30ish pressure switch flashlight I can get would be?). Anything else you guys suggest I do to the gun? I am hoping this gun will turn into a great CQB gun (350 fps limit)/ outdoor skirmish gun.
