I would like to be able to order a nice kit but spare bucks.

So I search through the local brand home depot like for PVC pipe...also some empty canister of drugs against stomach or head ache...if not a small bottle of cloth cleaning liquids for less than 2$.

Using a paint program let is see what could it look like...of course thepump should be parallel to the barrel... Just to adjust.



Okay. Kind of blue print. Need to work on.

The black end in front of the "gas" pipe above the barrel is a French wine bottle caps with black plastic top...you knows we have cheaper wine so it is like bottle of water : cheap and easy to find for us...if in USA a small bottle of Dasany cost 2$ ; I could find a pack of 6 bottles of 2 liter each of water off 1$...and just simple natural but no Evian or Vittel
The pump is cut from the hose of a broken aspirator.
Need to dremel the pyramid just on side of the ejection window.
Change the shoulder plate to the large part of a giant bottle of kitchen cleaning product.
And use half of remain of the cloth cleaning bottle with half of a part of a pipe for the stock tube triangular thing greeblie.

To be continued

Let's see first when finish Laughing
Would used microwave food plastic box as material to cut 5 sides of magazine "tunnel" ( forget the army tech word for...I know some vets whom kick my arse Razz ) hot glue the 4 sides and screw the top to the barrel tube.
The mag himself would be made of wood or electrical wires hiding wall square box like.
Rings for scope will be made of slice of pipe or empty druggs canister.
Would took the spring air soft sling ring swivel.

2 hours of work mostly done by the talent of handwork and tools of my brother



Was more difficult than what I plan.
The handguard rear ring of the replica was part and molded with the upper and under handguard. So have to put one closed looking instead.
We keep 1/4 of the barrel part between the ring and front sight to increase the stress point resistance of the new PVCs pipe barrel.
The cloth cleanning liquid bottle was cut and rest used for the second mag place.

To be continued.
