One man, One vision, One year to do it.

This is the story of how my hi-speed G36f came to be. I'll take you through all the steps, starting with step one:

 

 

Stock clone g36.

It was my first AEG. I did my best to love it, but after two weeks curiosity got the best of me, and I ended up taking the gearbox apart with zero experience.

Lucky me, the internet in my house went out the day after. For a week.

 

So, I started piecing the gearbox together, having no prior reference whatsoever. After about two weeks I finally got it, though not very well. 100 rounds later my piston shredded.

 

That's when I started upgrading it.

 

Externally, it remained stock, except for a reflex and vert grip.

 

Internally, not so much. 8 months and 30+ classifieds later, I had my GB converted to high speed. Things like high-speed gears, bearings, double ported cylinder, systema polycarb piston, and a few others.

 

By now, it was a great performance weapon, hitting 18rps on a stock motor and 8.4 china battery.

BUT I WANTED MORE.

I started thinking externals. That's when I discovered Pimp My Gun.

 

After some tinkering in PMG and Adobe Photoshop, I came up with this:

Diving right in, in the next week I picked up some boneyard SCAR rails, and went to work.

 

Starting with a hacksaw, I took off the top rail, then sanded it down with a belt sander. I used liquid nails for the rails.

But, I was sick of g36 hi-caps. I wanted more versatility.

 

I used the hacksaw again and made a custom tank-style flashider to make the personality. I also purchased a PP magwell adapter, and added a forward rail.

I had some SCAR rails left, so I made long-type rails for the handguard, which IMO look better than aftermarket ones.

This was starting to look good. It was unique, not a single thing like it. Something of my own.

 

I continued my quest for a g36f by painting the magwell adapter, and doing some touch-ups:

I liked it. It was starting to look like my concept art. Everyone I showed it too loved the look I gave it. I no longer considered it a clone nor g36. It was my custom prototype G36f.

 

 

And then the magic happened. I purchased a $5 can of OD krylon fusion from my local Ace hardware.

I was finished. One year after purchase, I had a completely custom and sick-looking gun I'm still in love with.

sick gun, wish I could make a thread like this, but I couldn't bear to rip up my Lr-300, I got a new stock and I've tried a few suppressors, but I could never take a hacksaw to my baby!

 

You have customization courage that few others possess, nice gun.

I've decided to scrap the trigger guard idea. that would involve a lot of ABS and bondo, and result something that either looks very crappy and/or is very brittle and likely to break off. Plus, the openness of the gun is complemented by the openness resulting from the lack of trigger guard. :)

Looks cool with no trigger guard. I think that the job you did was great and you now have a gun that is very distinctive. How did the krylon work for you? Has it been durable? Did you do a topcoat of clear also?

1) It is. Read the whole post please. :)

 

2) Thanks hydra.

 

3) Yeah, but it isn't OD. Thats just concept art. It has nothing to do with the actual gun itself. I've gotten so much s*** from people about the dang silencer and trigger guard. -.-

Wow, nice job. You give me confidence and alot of it when it comes to working on guns.

 

I love what you did with your gun, I'm thinking of doing this when I have money one day.

 

Also congrats on the game, I've been looking for it for quite a while :a-salute:
