M700 A.I.C.S Build-up Project - Suggestions, Parts

Recommended Posts

Ok so I've decided to make myself a new marksman rifle as the spring ones I have don't satisfy my need for perfection(which I hope to achieve with this final build)

 

I will in the next couple days become the proud owner of a pre-ban PCS Tanaka M700 A.I.C.S(phew!)

 

Overview

I plan to convert this into a mini C02 Quick Change rig that I have seen other people achieve successfully as I really do not enjoy the in-consistency of gas. I also plan to take most of the rifle apart to replace with higher quality and durability parts.

 

The List

(note: parts I plan to purchase preferably state-side)

 

Nineball VSR-10 Hop-up Bucking from airsoftatlanta

 

Laylax 6.03, 555mm IB from airsoftatlanta

 

KA / SD (OEM) CNC Chamber Conversion Kit from evike

 

G&G Valve Knocker(1) from evike

 

G&G Power Pack Kit(inc listed below) from evike

- Steel Cocking Piece

- Striker Spring

- 2x Knock Arm & Plunger Sets

 

G&G Gas Route Connector Spring from airsoftgi

 

and this is where I am conflicted on which part to get

 

G&G Hop Up Set from airsoftgi $25.99

 

Creation CNC Aluminum Hopup Chamber $64.99 from tacticalairsoftct(who supposedly have them in-stock)

 

The Creation chamber is nearly triple the price of the G&G, I have only read about the CNC and only seen positive praises, I was unaware G&G made a hop-up chamber until recently. So I ask, is it worth it?

 

Total Cost(excluding shipping)

Parts + G&G Hop-up - $262.96

Parts + Creation Hop-up - $301.96

 

Is the extra $39 worth the Creation?

 

I passed up the PDI 554mm 6.05/6.08 for the Laylax because

A. Double the money

B. Shipping from Japan (want this done before Christmas / Early 2012)

 

Other than that please post suggestions

 

C02 Quick Change Rig

 

Putting aside around $125 (according to tomanybbs build)

Will worry about the rig parts after receiving the rifle and parts

 

Really I just want suggestions and feedback on what I have listed so far and in-case I've missed something, Oh no!(it happens)

 

Well thanks for reading and posting if you do I really appreciate any feedback!

 

Update:

 

I'm actually confused now. Are the Creation, G&G, King Arms/SD Chambers all the same part simply manufactured by different companies. Or are the Creation and G&G separate units for the rifle?

 

wolf you shouldn't of mentioned the heavy barrel, I'm a sucker for sexy looking rifles set because now I'm set on getting one (budget increased by $128 :( )

However the person reviewing says:

"-Inner barrel is cut for Tanaka hop up, so if you have the King Arms hop up, the barrel is useless."

 

So that comes back to my other question above.

 

Then I found this:

The guy posts that his M700 A.I.C.S has the following parts:

 

Tanaka has the following upgrades:

 

-G&G M24 Heavy Barrel Set <----

-G&G Rubber set for the bolt

-G&G Valve knocker

-Polarstar Striker Spring

-King Arms VSR Conversion Chamber <----

-Firefly Hard Bucking

-Madbull 650mm PSG-1 Black Python II 6.03 Barrel

-CO2 rig using Palmer's Rock Regulator, 12g adapter, and microline fittings(not pictured)

-Centerpoint 4-16x40 scope

-Caldwell XLA Bipod

-Cheap paintball flash hider compression fit to the barrel

-Camo Tan paint (Stock is original shiny OD color)

 

Any thoughts on this?

 

Thanks to all posting, really need some reassurance on this project :D

For the G&G heavy barrel and VSR conversion kit read here:

Good luck (you're going to need it) on this project, don't forget to update this thread.

I have to warn you.... Tanaka's are pain when problem occurs!

I worked mostly on my AICS and I only changed the basics on the M700 Police.

 

You should consider the HPA external rig for better results (I hope Tanaka with HPA rig to make their comments)

I haven't done it on mine cause it's hard for me to refill the tanks.

Crossed out what you don't need. The heavy barrel comes with an aluminum hopup chamber and you don't need a replacement. The chamber is cut for the standard Tanaka barrel. A King Arms conversion or the cheaper Spartan Doctrine chamber make the inner barrel unusable. However, this is where people get tripped up. It makes Tanaka cut barrels unusable because it's converting it to use VSR barrels like the Laylax you are going to order.

 

So recap:

 

Heavy barrel = fancy outer barrel + hopup chamber

King Arms or Spartan Doctrine = converting to VSR barrels

Laylax inner barrel

Power pack=plungers, striker springs, striker/cocking piece

Valve knocker

Route connector spring

Nine ball hopup

Money for a HPA/Co2 air rig

Ok thanks Brainplay I was slightly confused on the matter of which barrel was unusable.

 

I've got people telling me that the G&G barrel is stupidly heavy and now I'm wondering if its even worth it.

 

I might just end up going with:

 

Creation CNC Chamber + KA/SD Hop-up

 

instead of dealing with extra weight that would really be unnecessary, I don't see how the G&G barrel adds anything to pure functionality.

 

Any spare parts I should order that are directly made for the M700 like #96 etc.

 

Would it be a good idea to get a G&G Rubber Air Seal?

 

Any further suggestions or ideas?
