WGP Ranger body project

For my next project, I'm planning to make a sick looking wgp ranger. I have a choice of these 3 guns to drop it in, and I'm looking for some feedback on this.

The gun on the upper left is a starwars blaster. It's very sturdy, and it would look cool with the barrel inside the shroud. The one on the upper right most clisely resembles an mp40. It has plenty of room inside, and the barrel length is pretty close with the 12 inch barrel. The mag can house the regulator as well. On the bottom is an airsoft rifle, I might be able to house an air supply in the stock (the round part is hollow), and the barrel will barely stick out od the front with the 14 inch barrel, giving it a sleek look. Lmk your opinions on this build.

As a starwars fan I would be ashamed to say anything other than the starwars blaster (which appears to be an E-5 by the way)

Well you get your wish, it was probably the worst choice because of the weird ergonomics. I realized that I would have no idea how to mount a trigger frame on it and leave the space between it and the frame. I'll most likely go with the "mp40" now, it's broken and less complicated than the airsoft gun (it probably has 40 screws holding the clamshell togather). I'll keep this thread up to date woth my progress.

why was i thinking this would be a WGP ranger pump?

also, the Star Wars guns where a Sterling MG for the Stormtroopers, C98 Broomhandle Mausers and MG 34s.

This gun will indeed be seeing plenty of use, after this is done, it will be worthy to back up my invert mini (in case it rains).

And nobody609, you thought that because it's already been done before; I'm trying to put a new spin on things .

The inside of the "Mp40" has pretty much been hollowed out, now the real work begins.

I think the star wars blaster would be really cool. Instead of mounting the trigger frame to it, couldn't you just extend the microswitch and wire to line up behind the trigger on the inside of the frame so that the plastic trigger activates it?

I wish, that would be really cool, but this gun has a mech framw on it. It's Probably better off that way since I could never get those 9.6 volt batteries to work right anyway.

Well, I've made some progress:



I'm about halfway to the drop in point on the other side of the body. The next problem I see is that the magazine might not be wide enough to fit the reg, so I'll have to heat it up and enlarge it if that's the case. I also might be able to find another magazine laying around that I could use.

Here's how it turned out. I'm still up for suggestions on improvements if you have any. When people ask me what kind of gun this is, my reply will be "It's the 2014 Dye DAM!".
