Single tube dm using dm4 body
I've been thinking about this project for a while and just recently bought an old dm4 body off eBay to finally start it.
Before I go any further I wanted to make sure my approach seemed possible. This isn't all the problems I need to consider, but it's the main one I'm trying to figure out now.
I was going to cut off the bottom half of the gun. At this point I'm not sure I will cut off the air transfer tubes as well. (Any advice on this would be great)
From there I was going to find a grip frame (any ideas what would work best?) connect an empire relay reg to it. The relay reg would run air to a crcb solenoid and directly to the back of the bolt using tubing.
My main concern at this point is having enough metal to work with to tap the back of the body for the air to pass into the bolt. I know I need to weld up some of the holes, but does anyone think this is possible? Would this be easier if I remove the air passages on the body as well?
Thanks for the help!
