Is that a Benchmade 42?
How much do you want?
How often do you get asked this?
I definitely don't have the money it's worth.... But I'm totally jelly.

The USP is real, but I will most likely get an airsoft one.

Wow, I've never seen a USP with color trades before....

KWA USP Compact (NS2) with Shooter Design Slide/Barrel and Trijicon Night Sights.  Just waiting for my KM tightbore and Streamlight rail adapter to come in and it will be set.
What holster do you plan on using with the flashlight? Assuming you are getting a rail adapter for a flashlight.

Probably will just have one made.  The rail adapter has turned out to be a bigger issue than I thought it would be.  The airsoft USPc ones are always out of stock and the GG&G USPc rail is slightly too large for the KWA USPc.  Works perfectly on the KWA USP Tactical though.

My Masada that's broken but I decided to paint it.



holy shit yes.



Thanks!

I really want to know how that was done, I'm getting ideas.

I just used krylon and a normal kitchen sponge, but you can use pretty much any sponge.

So you just spray the sponge and dab it on? I'm seeing a great possibility here with maybe a tan base layer and  brown splotches.

Yeah, just make sure it's not on the sponge too thick or else its just a big blob, but you can just press it on something else to get rid of some of the paint. It adds texture too! I think tan and brown will work good for desert areas.

Great paint job on the Masada. One of the best I've seen in a while.

I almost did that, and then I discovered that they don't make a 12" rail for some reason. They make a 13", which covers half the gas block on a rifle-length gas system and doesn't allow you to use a gas block front sight, and an 11", which has a huge gap behind the gas block and doesn't allow a bipod to be mounted as far forward as I'd like. Ended up going with a Midwest Industries SS-12, which looks very similar.

Yea I would assume the rails looked similiar to the Madbull rails and were relatively the same size. I'm planning on building something similiar to the G&G m16 above.

Well, that assumes that the gas block on an airsoft gun has to go in any specific place. My two cents? If you're spending the money to free-float your barrel with something like a TRX rail, you want your front sight attached to the barrel, not the rail. The point of a free-floated rail is to remove the inherent flexing of the handguard from the equation when lining up your sights, but if you put the sight ON the rail, you've re-introduced it again and largely negated the benefit of a free-floated gun. So it's for this reason that I wonder why they made a rail that cannot be properly used on any length gas system with a front sight gas block, unless you're mounting a low-pro gas block on a rifle-length system, and a second front sight/gas block combo near the muzzle, like a dissipator upper. I've only seen that done once before, and it was on a riced-out match AR. Looked kinda ugly, too.

Also, you might want to do a bit of research on the modular rail system. When researching whether it'd work on a rifle-length gas system, I saw a couple people complaining about the rails being extremely difficult to mount without removing the entire handguard, which may or may not also require you to remove the gas block and flash hider. Some people might be okay with that, but I don't know if I'm one of them.
