Thanks to Gixser, my M14 is done (the scope was the last thing I needed).



Is that a USGI bipod, or just a repro? And very, very nice. I love M14s.

Good question Delta.  I'm 99.9% sure it's a repo, but one of those, you never know things.  Said repo in the ad, but came with a bunch of markings on the box, came in a musty smelling wrapper, and the whole surplus feel.

That says it right there.  Was there a 13-digit number anywhere on the packaging?

Why'd you swap the old front hand grip you had?
It's creepy (Still cool) looking with what you've done to it...no bipod, m4 stock the batt box..Looks like an M4 on roids.
Which...I guess a 249 kind of is.

I've been meaning to ask you, what's with the 100mph tape on the grip?

I swapped the handguards for a RAS to mount the PEQ2, and grip, and a light when needed.  VFGs are a must for anything that isn't bolt action or a pistol.

I took off the bipod to save weight.  I'd never use it anyway.

I have a spare 9V battery in the grip compartment.  The tape helps keep the trap door shut.

The M4 stock is the biggest improvement you can make to the M249 platform.

NIce gat. I like how you wore it down a little? what did you use? The back(rough) side of a kitchen sponge is great for putting wear on a gun.

Several questions????

Where are you housing your battery? If its in the PEQ what kind is it, and what battery are you using? How long does it last, and with whatever FPS you are using?

Is that an aftermarket rail or did it come with the gun?

Where did you get the old front hand grip?

Also Nice modstock!!! However, I still like the retrack stock it came with.

We should rename this thread called "Pimp My Gun"!!!

1.  My battery is in the AN/PEQ.  It is a 1700 mAh 9.6v NiCd and it lasts approximately 1.5 box mags, or 3600 BBs.  I also have a 2400 mAh 9.6v NiMH SAW pack that I'm going to reconfigure as an AN/PEQ pack.  I also have the option of running the battery in the box mag.  

2.  It is a G&G rail from AEX.  80-something dollars.  Unfortunately, The real Knights rail will not work on the airsoft SAW, so I had to get a fake.  The G&G rail is nicely made, all rails are in-1913 spec, and it has a nice durable parkerized finish.

3.  If you mean the Knight's VFG, I had it.  If you mean the front-mounted SAW grip, I made it.

4.  Everyone thinks the Para stock looks cool.  I'm here to tell you that it's less-than-ideal when used practically.  Shitty cheekweld, lack of adjustment, and TWICE the weight of the M4 stock arrangement.  It's the reason the Army is issuing a New 249 stock through RFI.  It's like an M4 stock, but fatter.  I'll get some pics of it up soon.

I also have a Aimpoint Comp M2 replica with GI mount that I use on this beast, but it's on loan to a buddy for awhile.

You guys may think my SAW looks radical, but it's the way most dudes rock their 249.  I've seen several regular infantry dudes with M4 stocks and EOTechs.

Robby, I'd add brown as the third color, although the camo you have there will be effective as is.

Come one, paint the whole gun!  Everybody does it!
