I have been working on this marker for a little over a week, and im very happy with how it is turning out so far, still much to do but it feeds paint fine just need to relocate the detent. Also need to pick up fsr to see how they feed.
Now the pictures.
Let me know what you guys think and ill be happy to answer any questions.
Slowly working on this marker, i spent a long time figuring out a way to remount the front bolt, since i really didn't like the way the stock bolt from the mag well worked.
I put jb weld in all the previously drilled holes for the mag well to make the magazine feed better and the ball carrier from the mag rests perfectly inline with where the bolt slides in the gun.
It might be a little hard to see but i squared up the front with the plastic stick epoxy from jb weld.
Then drill the 1/4" hole to match the back one.
I much prefer this set up and makes it look much cleaner in my opinion.
Now that its all lined up how i want it i wanted to get rid of this gap.
I was originally going to use the steelstick from jb weld and round this area out with the body but figured it would require alot of work to keep the epoxy out of the inside of the mag well since i want it to line up and match the lines on the mag well.
I finally came up with the idea to make some plates to sit flush against the gun and match the mag well so i would have an easy way to keep epoxy out of the mag well plus it would help in shaping the epoxy to the body.
All that's left for body work is to attach the plates on both sides, and alot of epoxy.
I was hoping to get some opinions from members here.
The very front of the mag well where it goes around the gun leaves about a 1/2" gap to the front. Im considering building the front to match how i build up around the mag well since i think it would look weird otherwise.
I feel like im rambling so ill stop now.
If anything is confusing ill try to clear that up just let me know.
