Converted M4 Airsoft Sniper Rifle
Yes, I know this is completely silly. A Belt-Fed Airsoft Sniper Gun is pure fantasy, and is wrong for so many reasons. The only off the shelf airsoft gun parts you can see in this shot are the scope and mounts, and the electric boxmag. The rest is all handmade ABS and metal parts made by yours truly. The Black Bess Custom Airsoft sniper was made from a D-Boys all-metal M4 rifle. This was an SPR Mk12 when I got it, and it is a very sturdy platform for custom building airsoft guns.
Bullet string is poured plastic, and was made from a cast of real shells. The charging handle was turned on my 9x20 Harbor Freight bench lathe.
From looking at this heavily customized airsoft sniper gun, you can easily get the idea I hate to purchase ready made airsoft gun accessories. You'd be correct, I rarely buy upgrade pistons, springs, seals, nozzles, or gearboxes for my BB guns, used or new. It's all about creating a feel for the whole thing- after all, most airsoft use is playing pretend anyway :) I took a mold from some real shells that were too long for the upper I'd drawn up, so I lopped the ends off of them, making for some thought-provoking Wildcatters. The links are cast in- a dry brush treatment fools the eye.
Parts for this Shrike type airsoft sniper conversion were pre-designed in TurboCAD, and made on my Shopbot CNC. Everything fit right together, making this one a quick project to do up.
Have you checked out the gorilla-long adjustable buttstock? It's actually two, fused together seamlessly with ABS cement and re-finished. The web under it can be swapped out with other ones I made for it.
Even close up, the airsoft sniper gun's shells look pretty real. The top hinge cover on this one did not function- it was fixed in place, and the hinge is cosmetic.
