Killbuckets Custom Airsoft guns Tour
Killbucket's Home built MacGlashan

My "Airsoft MacGlashan Practice
There's a slim chance you may have used
one of these at a carnival, attempting to shoot a little red
star out of the middle of a chunk of paper.
Technically possible, but highly
improbable...You had to draw a nearly perfect circle to remove
every bit of star, mis ONE shot, and your math goes kaput on
I have GREAT memories of being
VERY frustrated with this process. Had I $100, the
random-toothed carny could have had every dime, because just
shooting a machinegun with John Wayne-COOL spade grips was a rush for 9-year old
me. The military briefly used these for gunnery practice for
new pilots/gunners, and they have all but vanished from pop
It's a good bet that if your Grandaddy
scoffs HARD at your airsoft guns, he won't be able to stop
himself from at least trying something looking like this.
Huggers of the P90 series airsoft guns are allowed a bitty
smile, the MacG was a top-feeder. But they are also afforded a
sickening halt, as I'm going to just do a quickie, and build a
box around a Beta Spetnaz AKM. Because they're cheap, and I'm
going to make the Ak part of the design disposable...OK,
field-swappable! So after perusing
the few pics we can find, I've determined two things:
A: An approximation is going to be just
fine, because most humans won't be carrying a real one, and be
able to compare them.
B: No CNC'd parts. Putting too much
thought into this would be a shame, unless I wanted to make a
Museum Dummy. I don't. This is going to be a fun machine!
I'll still give it a fitting paint-job,
The gun has to slip out without grabbing any tools. The gun
has to be minimally modded, so backups aren't a chore. I've
removed the furniture and the selector lever, and locked the
gearbox into full-auto mode with a spot of ABS glue. Design
will be such that placing the stripped-down AK into the box
results in the trigger being guided back by a ramp, so it's
always in fire mode as well. An electric solenoid relay will
turn the AK on and off with presses on the fire button. A
small toggle switch will serve as a safety.
First off, a chunk
of scrap cardboard and a few tools are set out on the kitchen
floor, to determine the package..
browse the InnerTubes much, you've seen cardboard guns
aplenty. I laugh too. Find a guy who's made 20 or so, and you
might have a pretty good engineer on your hands.
Actually, I had the fan going,
and the dogbowl made a great
