    Meet The Family

    Well I cant leave well enough alone and everytime I think I'm done with a build I change something.

    So this is a place where I'm going to keep everything up to date and yadda.

    So lets start here... The BEAST Ver 3.0
    Unfortunatly I have lost all pictures of the progress of the beast through the years but it was epic and had quiote the reputation on here...

    here's the only picture I have left:


    and since then I've taken an 8 year break and came back herd.

    here are my mags as of now. they are both projects and are always changing, there is no specs for them as they change daily as I tinker.

    in the pictures though you will see 2 classics, one with a benchy 2 finger, classic body and the other with a beat up ULE body that I've yet to repair and one of the 2 auto-response frames I have

    both with chain foregrips I got bored and made. I like the shorter one better



    -
    -
    -

    -

    Been changing some stuff around, doing this and that, got a couple parts in and have built up my warp fed mag again... been 9 years since this warp has spun and after a little TLC its up and spinning.




    O and a little teaser

    New update: 10/30/12
    this is my main mag as it sits, still have some modification I want to do to the body. the front foregrip is exactly how I want it... minus the fact that that its steel and not aluminum, havnt found aluminum chain yet so i'll be making the chain from scratch. I'm trying out different drops to get the feel I want and I have no clue what I want to do for the frame yet as I'm basing my decision on what luke mills out.

    also the anno i'm planning is going to be all gloss black with a lime green spash

    IMO , I would change the rail to a am/mm rail versus the emag length rail you have giving it a more compact look.The body and frame are awesome , I would cut the body for it to fit flush with a am/mm rail. If keeping the emag length rail yeah the chain link doesn't flow with the other parts. Hope you take constructive Criticism ok, if not sorry in advance.

    i wouldnt use the chain, but im more for comfort.
    but it does have that hey look at me kind aspect.

    weld some aluminum chain up and anodize your gun a nice color scheme and bam,

    i like it over all though.
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    Frankly if you are going with a CF body then I would go with a CF foregrip.

    It will help tie the different elements of the gun together. You already have a competing element with the hive pattern on the grips. It will work out if you tie the other elements all together. You could look into a CF barrel or barrel tip as well. It might accent things nicely.

    I said the same thing over on PBN ^^^

    I think a 15* DW would tie in nicely. I also think a bike grip would go well on it, since that has the honeycomb patter in the grip, it would also be comfortable and you could do 15* or straight for more compact look.

    I was thinkibg aboyt the DW 15 grip but I really can't. I've seen to many custom mags with it. Ill spend some quality time with photoshop and ill post some pictures. Ill also post up a good side shot without a foregrip so you guys can photoshop as well. I work in a machine shop... I should be able to come up with something

    I think one of Lukes Foregrips would look good on this.

    that is RT'ing like crazy. that is almost too much RT'ing. what on/off pin do you have in it? if its not the input pressure from the tank(though if you have an adjustable tank reg, then that would confirm it, or if you have a super accurate gauge that you put on it to see if the output pressure is at) then it should be either the trigger rod length.
