M4 VLTOR CASV Rifle


#21

Okay. I see now that the part I was looking at was more of just the shroud. That is one of my favorites. I need to unbox my EOD and get him back on display.

I know what you mean about the early SS rifles. The early ones are a pain as it seems the pins were bigger then the holes and forced in. The new ones can be broken down very smoothly.


#22

You mean the SS055 EODMU? Thinking about buying that for a mannequin. This figure is still everywhere available, but highly underrated in my opinion.


#23

I have the SS013. That one is a good figure. I never bought the full 055. I did use his flight suit for my SOAR figure I kitbashed.


#24

That’s it.


Anyone any advice on how to make or get the flared magwell?


#25

With SRS

Sight’s rail adapter is too tight though and would need filing. Hard decision, hence it might not be useable for other rifles anymore.


#26

That looks really good, chpo! You really had to hack up a lot of different parts - your hard work paid off!

(As an aside - does anyone have that foregrip available for sale/trade? PM me if so.)


#27

Wow, that turned out really well. Great job chpo. No idea on how to do the magwell though. Customizing is not my strong point.


#28

That’s the ES Skipper one, unfortunately I have only one.


#29

No problem,thanks. I’ll still make some changes though. Thinking about panting the stock and swapping the scope. Also adding a laser. Will post more pics when updated!

Looking good Christoph! A nice clean build all round, mate.

Good choice going with the ARMS rear sight. It complements the CASV rail perfectly. I would suggest that you don’t quit yet: throw a little paint at her. I would paint the stock in a 2 tone scheme similar to the pic in your original post. For the optic, I’d go with the Eotech, personally.

Finally, regarding the flared magwell, I made mine from scratch using some styrene sheets and a little milliput. It was pretty fiddly and took quite a bit of work. I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re not comfortable with modelling.

@turkeyshot

Thanks Jason for your intel and opinion. I’ll definitely paint the stock black, but I have a second left I’ll give a beige tone for a two tone scheme so I can switch.

Well, I have to figure something out then. Yours is well done though and really adds something even more unique to it!

Opted for this now. Scope is really the hardest choice.

By the way, I wish I would have a weapon light like yours with the csble attached in black, but it only exists in green and beige, I think.


#32

She is really coming together now. That variable scope looks great.

You could always paint one of the tan/green painted taclights black if you can get you hands on one. If you do, plug the inside of the light with blutac to mask it so it doesn’t also get sprayed with the black.


#33

You having any new projects at the moment?
