Okay so I've finally decided to do something this tg break, so I found some scrap wood my dad didn't care for and decided I would use it to creat a magazine, maybe my AK-47 front sight, and maybe even those pvc pipe magazine holsters I talked about way back.

Heres my problem. I have no way of securing any of these pieces of wood to my actual marker. I have no idea how I would do it. Anyone have any ideas? I dont have any tools that can tap a screw hole into the wood, which would enable me to use some older allen screws. I pretty much have nothing to use that would make them secure like most other items would. for the dragunov mag Im making, I might have to actually extend a piece that goes up and around the top of the marker, but that would look like crap... and the sight, well, I have no idea how I'm gonna do that. I guess i could try to find some a really small bolt and see if that works... Most I've seen have a small hole at the bottom for a screw where it just tightens and clamps onto a barrel, kind of like how a feedneck would. I have a few ideas for the pvc pipe magazine holsters that would likely work, but if anyone has any ideas of securing the magazine to the marker and the sight to the barrel, I'm all ears. Just a little background info on my air setup, I did the same thing kingtutballer did with his air when he made his wooden shroud. My remote coil goes directly into the marker, no drop forward or steel line. Just thought id put that out there in case some ideas would conflict with that...

EDIT: Foundan idea for the mag, im going to try to extend a part of the mag upestf so that it goes up a around that small plug that sticks out when you take off the MR2 shroud. After that Ill cut a bit off of the bottom (horizontally) from my plastic airsoft shroud I'm using as the dragunov handguard so that the extended piece fits through.

Okay I just finished up with my mag and shroud for my "tac-dragunov" project. I still need to get a longer barrel and an AK sight, but that will come, hopefully in the not too distant future. Here's some pics of the finished product, one picture with the unfinished shroud and no mag, and one picture of the mag and shroud before they were spray painted, and the mag wasn't quite complete. Hope you guys like it. Oh and I also ended up cutting part of the shroud off in the back, it was so long to the point where it was very difficult unscrewing the barrel later.

I plan on making a better magazine once we get a drill press, but this will do for now.

yeah I forgot to do the screw heads, I'll do that tomorrow though, I'm tired.
I decided I wasn't going to buy a mag since we just finished setting up our woodshop, so I figured, hey, if we have some scrap wood, i could just make one for free. I'll probably end up making a better one once we get a drill press though, mine got kind of scratched up in the process.

heres a tip, use black nail polish on the screws. it'll be a lot faster than spray paint, and it wont flake off.

I may do that in the future, but for now I'll just use black spray paint. My dad made my sister throw out her black nail polish cause he hates "that goth ****" lol. I'll probably get some sooner or later though.
