    I have a few custom made airsoft gun kits available for sale. These were designed for Mech Warfare. They are built around a commercial airsoft gearbox, barrel, and bucking. Three ABS 3-D printed...

    Re: Minimal parts for AEG firing mechanism?

    Yeah, I went through quite a few 'trials' and nearly as many 'errors' trying to get the receiver to fit the gearbox and work properly. I wouldn't have been able to do it without my own printer.
